For me personally, one of the first questions asked on a date is, “Do you snore?”. If you’re stuck with someone who snores or you yourself are a snorer, we hope our list of mattresses can help you and your partner find some relief.
Does Snoring Effect You?
Snoring can be a nightmare for both the partner and the snorer. It’s obvious how it can disturb the sleep of a partner, but it also can greatly affect even the snorer’s sleep. A person who snores can wake up from the sound of their own snoring which disrupts their sleep pattern and in some cases leads to sleep apnea. It may also cause restless and fragmented sleep which prevents them from entering the much needed deep sleep state. Unfortunately, many ignore the problem of snoring and write it off as just a way of life. In reality, there are many different factors that could be the cause of snoring; factors that we can control. Choosing a mattress that provides key comfort and support could be a simple answer to the curse of snoring.
Snoring is caused when the throat muscles relax during sleep and the airway becomes narrower. With a narrowed airway, vibrations from the airflow create the sound of snoring. Of course, snoring comes in many variations, it can be constant or sporadic, it can be loud or subtle, and it can include different sounds of snorting, gasping, or wheezing. No two snores are created equal and they can sound very different among individuals.
There is a long list of things that can contribute to snoring, such as a mispositioned jaw, obesity that has caused fat to gather around the throat, sleep deprivation, alcohol or drugs that cause the muscles to relax, and sleeping on one’s back resulting in the tongue dropping to the back of the mouth. You may notice that almost all causes may be in our own control, so, a peaceful snore-free night may be in your own power. When choosing a mattress to help with snoring it’s important to make sure there is adequate support for the head, neck, and back. Also, a firmer mattress tends to be the best option for a snorer because it doesn’t allow the back and neck to sink into a poor position.
The Layla is a great mattress produced by a great company. It may be the most expensive choice on our list but we believe the benefits of the Layla make it worth every penny. Below are a few of the deciding factors which helped us choose.
Layla Sleep has made a great name for themselves with their trademark copper infused mattress. The copper infusion and flip ability makes the Layla a bit more unique than it’s competitors. Actually, the company boasts the only copper infused mattress on the market that’s flippable. They truly believe in the healing effects of copper and its ability to compress together for extra pressure relief and support under the shoulders and hips. Copper is also a natural antibacterial which not only prevents but also destroys harmful bacteria that may otherwise lodge in your mattress.
As a flippable mattress, the top and bottom layers of the Layla can both be used as the comfort layer. Although the two sides offer a different feel, they are actually made from the same material, copper gel-infused memory foam. 3 inches of this copper and gel-infused foam creates a softer feel on one side, while 1 inch of the same foam is used on the opposite side to offer a firmer feel. Making up the core of the Layla are two more foam layers, one 2-inch layer of convoluted foam to help the mattress breathe, and one 4 ½ inch layer of core support foam which adds great motion isolation to the mattress.
In addition to its fantastic support and pressure relief, the copper-infused foam helps keep the mattress cool by absorbing excess heat and transferring it away from the user.
The Layla mattress is proudly produced in the USA with high-quality materials and should not lose any of its effectiveness as the years pass by. So confident in their product, Layla gives every mattress a risk-free 120-night sleep trial and a full lifetime warranty.
The Tuft & Needle is not only one of our top choices, but it’s also one of Amazon’s top choices. Tuft & Needle have a simple but clever motto, “when you’re comfortable, you sleep – it’s that simple”. From the beginning, their goal has been to offer a high-quality product at a fair and honest price.
At Tuft & Needle, they believe in quality over quantity so instead of using layers of different pre-existing foams, they decided to create their own top of the line adaptive foam. This 3- inch layer of proprietary adaptive foam was specially designed to be extremely soft yet offer effective pressure relief for the user. The softness combined with the firm underlying core support foam allows for just the right amount of pressure relief and contour.
The Tuft & Needle may have a different feel for side and back sleepers but the mattress is more than suitable for both sleeping positions.
Some important information regarding temperature regulation can be found in their proprietary adaptive foam. It has been engineered with both graphite and cooling gel to help regulate temperature. This is important considering memory foam mattresses have become infamous for sleeping hot.
Tuft & Needle made sure their mattress met all certified requirements. Like most of its competitors, the foam used in the Tuft & Needle is CertiPUR-US certified. In addition, the mattress is also GREENGAURD Gold certified, Parent Tested Parent Approved, and holds STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certification. The company also offers a 100-night no-risk sleep trial and a 10-year warranty.
Lucid knows there is no such thing as one size fits all, especially when dealing with mattresses. They have a deep line of different foam and hybrid mattresses that caters to everyone’s needs. However, the one Lucid that caught our eye when considering snoring relief was their 12-inch latex hybrid.
The Lucid is a medium-firm hybrid which means it’s a combination of coils and foam. In total, 5 layers of foam and one core support system of coils. Structurally, the mattress has latex, gel-memory, transition, and support foams all working in unison to create the perfect cushion and support for the user. The support coils are individually wrapped which is important to allow focused support at exact pressure points.
With 4 ½ inches of foam on top of individually wrapped coils, the Lucid also excels at motion transfer. Not only can this mattress help with snoring, but it can also help if you have a restless partner that tends to move a lot in the night. Also, as a hybrid, it’s no surprise that the Lucid does a fantastic job keeping cool. A combination of open-cell latex foam, gel-infused memory foam, and a breathable core of coils guarantees a comfortable night sleep.
The Lucid is produced in China, is CertiPUR-US certified and comes with a 10-year warranty. Unfortunately there is no official sleep trial available through Lucid, however, they do accept returns within 30 days of purchase.
Starting from the ground up, Casper has become a very well known sleep company by means of its creative marketing and great customer service. They have stepped back and let their mattress do the talking. With tens of thousands of reviews, it’s clear to see they are the producers of a fantastic product.
The Casper is designed with four layers of high-quality foam plus a cover. The top layer is 1 ½ inches of breathable and buoyant open-cell foam that ensures nice bounce and responsiveness. In addition to its buoyancy, the open-cell structure helps keep the user cool throughout the night. The second and third layer adds 3 more inches of foam that works to give proper shoulder and neck support. This is where the Caser stands out, with their innovative zoned support that allows for soft contour under the neck, shoulder, and hips, but firm support under the torso and legs. Finishing off the Casper is a thick 5 ½ inch layer of durable support foam which creates the foundation and shape of the mattress.
Every Casper is designed and produced in the USA and is also CertiPUR-US certified. The company also offers a risk-free 100-night sleep trial with every mattress plus they stand behind their products craftsmanship with a 10-year warranty.
It’s hard to beat the price of the Zinus Green Tea mattress which makes it a great option for those who need to pinch every penny. It’s a great choice for those who desire high-quality pressure relief, comfort, and support, without the high-quality price tag.
The Zinus is comprised of 5 pressure relieving memory foam layers that support the user in all the key areas of the body. What makes the Zinus ideal is its combination of an extra thick memory foam comfort zone that contours perfectly to the body and an extra supportive high-density base foam which prevents the user from sinking into an unhealthy position.
As the name implies, the Zinus is infused with a green tea extract. This extract acts as a safe anti-oxidant that keeps the mattress fresh and smelling good. We will mention one negative thing about the Zinus is its possibility for overheating. The top layers seem to focus solely on pressure relief and support, leaving the mattress’s only option for airflow at the base layers via an egg carton design. If you tend to sleep hot, one of our other options may be better for you but if overheating is not a usual problem, the Zinus is a great option for adequate support to help reduce snoring.
The Green Tea mattress is produced in China and comes with free shipping through Amazon. The company offers a 100-night sleep trial, plus a 10-year limited warranty. Making sure they stay environmentally friendly, every Zinus is CertiPUR-US certified.
Lastly, the Zinus is highly rated and reviewed with more than 24,500 total reviews on Amazon alone, 20,000 of these being 4-star or more. Understandably, it can be hard to decide which reviews to trust, however, it’s hard to argue against 20,000 excellent reviews.
