The sleep professionals ranked a range of mattresses and evaluated their firmness, comfort, suitability for different sleep styles, price, special features, and picked the Amerisleep AS3 as the best overall bed of the year.
The AS3 mattress is a memory foam mattress and was found to be a breathable, comfortable mattress, with state-of-the-art materials and technology to help ensure that the sleeper has the best possible night’s rest.
The mattress contains Bio-Pur®, which molds to the body and relieves pressure points, allowing those with aching joints to sleep well. It was also found to be breathable so the person sleeping doesn’t overheat.
Whatever your sleep position, the AS3 mattress provides good support for the spine’s natural alignment, as the mattress was recommended for side back and combination sleepers.
The mattress has clearly landed well with customers, as out of 6600 reviews, more than 6000 used the word “comfortable” in their description, and 5900 said that it had good support.
A new mattress can be a big and expensive investment. It’s an important one too, as the right mattress will ensure a comfortable night’s sleep, vital for good mental and physical health, boosting your immune system, and improving your memory and ability to learn.
On the other hand, lack of sleep can be detrimental to your health. Sleep Junkie found that Amerisleep’s mattress was the best overall to give a good night’s sleep, leaving the sleeper feeling refreshed and ready to start the day.

What is a memory foam mattress?
A memory foam mattress is a mattress that contains foam that molds around the sleeper’s body. The foam reacts to heat in the body to change its shape. When the pressure of the body is removed from the mattress, the foam reverts back to its original shape.
Memory foam was originally designed by NASA to be used for seat cushioning for test pilots. It has since gone on to be used to make couches, beds, and chairs more comfortable for the general public looking for space-age comfort.
Some memory foam mattresses have springs as well as foam, and some are made up of support foam and memory foam. The idea is that the memory foam evenly distributes the sleeper’s body weight and adapts to the natural curves of the body
What are the benefits of a memory foam mattress?
One of the main pros of a memory foam mattress is that it provides pressure relief for the body. If a sleeper is dealing with a bad back or sore muscles, then a memory foam mattress can help as it molds to the individual’s body. It alleviates pressure points, helping ensure a good night’s rest.
Memory foam mattresses can also be hypoallergenic, meaning they’re a good choice for allergy sufferers.
