If you're in the market for a mattress, chances are you've stumbled upon some online-only mattress companies that deliver straight to your door. Gone are the days of traveling from mattress store to mattress store to find your new nighttime digs. Holding design and comfort as the highest priority, these companies are creating the coziest beds for all shapes, sizes, and sleep styles — delivered straight to your door.

We've compared each one meticulously on several criteria to determine which are hypoallergenic, made with eco-friendly materials, come with warranties, and can be delivered and/or assembled in your home. Some even remove your old mattress for you free of charge, while others offer in-home trials as long as 120 days, and still more provide monthly financing plans if you don't have the whole price amount up front.

Curl up with us and check these top mattress brands out to decide which one you'll soon be crashing on:

The top 10 hypoallergenic mattress brands that deliver straight to your door

Loom & Leaf

Made in the USA, Loom & Leaf luxury memory foam mattresses are constructed with an organic cotton covering, a natural thistle flame retardant, and eco-friendly foam.

According to their green initiative, Loom & Leaf foams are "CertiPUR certified and don't contain any harmful chemicals." Loom & Leaf mattresses are also created using extensively researched sleep technologies.

Even better, as an online-only store, there are no brick-and-mortar showrooms for Loom & Leaf to staff and maintain, so the savings can be passed along to the customer.

They offer a 120-day in-home trial on most mattresses, provide a 15-year warranty, abide by a 10-commitment approach to customer service, and regularly form partnerships around the country to help support communities in need with organizations like the Salvation Army and Wounded Warrior Project.

  • Delivery? Yes. They provide free white glove delivery anywhere in the contiguous U.S. and some parts of Canada.
  • Assembly? Yes, they will professionally set up your mattress upon delivery free of charge.
  • Mattress removal? Yes, they'll remove your old mattress free of charge.
  • Price: Prices range from the smallest Twin mattresses at $749 to the to the largest King mattress at $1,499.
  • Hypoallergenic? Yes.
  • Eco-friendly? Yes.
  • In-home trial? Yes, there's a 120-day in-home trial.
  • Warranty? Yes, 15 years.

Strengths: 

  • White glove delivery is offered
  • Mattresses have two top layers of foam, making them thicker (up to 12 inches thick) than many other brands - with great motion isolation as well
  • 2 firmness options are offered
  • Great body support lets you rest comfortably without sinking
  • 120 night trial period is longer than most
  • Old mattress removal at time of delivery
  • Cooling gel and construction keeps sleepers cool 

Weaknesses:

  • White glove delivery needs to be scheduled
  • As with most memory foam mattresses, it's not flippable
  • Edges aren't extremely supportive
  • While it is quite thick, some felt this mattress was not soft enough for their tastes (even with the 2 firmness options)

Bottom Line: 

If you like a firm, yet memory-foam-luxurious feeling to your mattress, and you don't mind scheduling a delivery time, this one may be right for you. Keep in mind there isn't much "bounce" to these, and they sleep cooler than many other foam mattresses. Some felt these were comparable to a Tempur-pedic at a sliver of the price. Don't sleep too close to the edges, though!

Purple Mattress

Purple offers two basic styles of mattress: the Original Purple and the New Purple. They also make Purple pillows, Purple sheets, Purple bases, Purple seat cushions, Purple Pet Beds, and more. Both the Original and New Purples promise to "cradle your pressure points like a soft bed while supporting everywhere else like a firm one."

Using their Purple Smart Comfort Grid, Purples alleviate joint pressure and conform to your body's shape while dispersing body heat via their open grid design to keep you cool. The main difference: Original Purples come with 2 inches of Smart Comfort Grid, while New Purples come with either 2, 3, or 4 inches of it, offering shoppers a choice of softness — the thicker the Smart Comfort Grid, the softer the mattress.

Although their website does mention that materials used in Purple mattresses include a "non-toxic" flame retardant (not chemically treated), a non-toxic hyper-elastic polymer, and foams which are CertiPUR certified, there is no other specific elaboration of Purple's eco-friendliness.

It's worth noting, however, that the site does state any "trimmings" created during the making of Purple beds are "melted and re-used — and all Purple packaging materials are 100% recyclable."

Bottom Line:

Purple may be great for you if you're shorter than 6'3", weigh more than 130 pounds, or need back support. Try to buy from the official website if you think there's the slightest chance you'll want to return it. You may want to go ahead and read the BBB site before purchasing as well.

Leesa

With the simple mission to help people sleep better, the Leesa mattress company developed in 2014 to create two superior mattresses: the original Leesa and the Sapira.

The Leesa is constructed with 10 inches of foam, a cooling top layer, and other proprietary materials to ensure easy adaptation to all body shapes and sizes, as well as every sleeping style. Both sides of the Leesa mattress adapt uniquely to each sleep partner as well, making for sounder slumber.

The Sapira is a "hybrid" mattress, combining Leesa's Pressure-relieving Memory foam and Cooling Avena foam with an individually-wrapped pocket spring system which combine to provide optimal support. Aside from mattresses, Leesa also sells bedding and accessories. Leesa mattresses are made with CertiPUR certified foam, and both the Leesa and Sapira mattresses use non-chemical flame retardants. The top layer of cooling foam on both mattress types is hypoallergenic.

The Leesa team only use materials made in the USA and makes sure to give back as well, which is exemplified in their One-Ten philosophy. They plant one tree for every mattress sold, and donate one mattress for every ten they sell, resulting in over 26,000 donated mattresses to date.

As a certified B corporation, Leesa is committed to "meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability," and fulfills this by working with helping organizations throughout the nation like Seattle's Union Gospel Mission, Denver Rescue Mission, NYC's Bowery Mission, Phoenix Dream Center, and Carriage Town Ministries of Flint, Michigan. They also provide four $10,000 scholarships yearly to aspiring students in need.

If you'd like to try a Leesa or Sapira out in-person before you order, Leesa mattresses are found in some select West Elm, Dream Gallery, and Pottery Barn stores.

  • Delivery? Yes, UPS delivers Leesa mattresses in a box.
  • Assembly? No, but instructions are included on the website.
  • Mattress removal? No.
  • Price: Leesa: $525 to $1195; Sapira: $995 - $1795.
  • Are they hypoallergenic? Some materials.
  • Eco-friendly? Somewhat, see above.
  • In-home trial? Yes, they offer a 100-night trial.

  • These are medium firm without much sinkage
  • Good for most sleeping positions
  • Breathable fabrics for good temperature regulation
  • Decent sleep trial and warranty periods

Weaknesses:

  • No handles for lifting  
  • Some described a slight chemical odor upon arrival which took several days to wear off
  • Those seeking a softer, 'sinkier' feel to their mattress top may not like these
  • Although comfy, it isn't really "luxurious"
  • Low ratings on edge support
  • Some side-sleepers felt these were too firm for their tastes

Bottom Line:

These are great mattresses for couples and those who like to sleep cool. Try it for a while to see if you like it - most people will due to its Universal Adaptive Feel technology. What's more, Leesa has an A+ with the BBB currently, a good sign that you'll be satisfied with the product - or if not, they'll resolve it to your satisfaction. Enjoy!

Casper

Having partnered up with American Airlines to create in-flight sleep products as well as enjoying numerous mentions in the press, Casper isn't new to the mattress game.

After their initial design research revealed the four main factors that impact sleep are comfort, support, temperature, and durability, Casper completed another 3,240 hours of testing to arrive at their award-winning design.

Featuring unique ergonomics and premium quality foams, Casper now makes 3 main types of mattresses (The Wave, the Casper (their most popular model), and the Essential), as well as pillows, sheets, duvets, bed frames, dog beds, and more.

The main differences between the mattresses are the layers of foam and other proprietary materials combined to give optimal comfort. The Wave has 5 layers and is 11.5 inches thick, while the Casper has 4 layers at 10 inches, and the Essential has 3 layers at 8.5 inches. You can compare this and the rest of their qualities here.

As far as eco-friendly or hypoallergenic materials, the Casper website states their foams are CertiPUR certified, their fire socks and tops are OEKO-TEX certified, and all of their mattresses are "free of harmful, ozone-depleting chemicals and emissions." 

Want to try them out in person before you order? Find a Casper location near you, or check select Target stores for their products.

  • Delivery? Yes, they ship to you free via UPS primarily. In some parts of New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, they offer same-day courier service.
  • Assembly? Normally, you unbox and assemble yourself, taking around 15 - 20 minutes. In-home setup can be arranged through Casper's delivery partners in the U.S. and Toronto (just select 'White Glove delivery' at checkout).
  • Mattress removal? No.
  • Price: $350 - $2395.
  • Are they hypoallergenic? Yes.
  • Eco-friendly? Yes.
  • In-home trial? Yes, 100 nights in-home trial.
  • Warranty? Yes, 10 years.

Strengths:

  • Great for those who like a medium-firm mattress
  • Good back support
  • Superior breathability so you can sleep cool
  • Durable - perfect for up to or over 10 years if rotated regularly
  • Made with high quality materials sourced in the USA
  • Good motion isolation

Weaknesses:

  • Poor edge support
  • Heavier people did not feel supported
  • No handles for lifting or moving - and it weighs about 70 pounds (this is 'lightweight' for some; not others)

Bottom Line:

This choice is ideal for partners who like medium-firm support and are of average weight. Great if you need superior lumbar support. You'll like the durability as it's likely to last up to a decade - but, once again, stay away from those edges.

Saatva

As creators of Loom & Leaf, some of the aforementioned L&L features will be similar to those of the also-affordable eco-chic Saatva mattresses. Some of those similarities are their eco-friendly and hypoallergenic materials, explained in detail here.

Additionally, the Lineal Adjustable base is offered as the ideal base to go with Saatva mattresses (although they must be purchased at an additional cost), Saatvas are also made in the USA, and they also offer a 15-year warranty. The price range is comparable, and many mattress construction features are the same, such as the euro pillow top, as well.

Differences would include the variations of mattress, such as some aspects of their unique construction, varying comfort levels (Plush Soft, Firm, and Luxury Firm), and a slight variation on their customer service approach with their 9-Point Saatva Philosophy aka their "Best Friend Philosophy."

They also appear to support slightly fewer charity organizations. Doing business only as an online store, Saatva saves each customer up to $1,000 per mattress, giving them the "Saatva advantage", explained here. (In addition to Loom & Leaf, Saatva also makes Zenhaven, another mattress worth a glance.)

  • Delivery? Yes, Saatva currently offers free shipping, white glove delivery service, and mattress removal.
  • Assembly? Yes.
  • Mattress removal? Yes.
  • Price: They range from $599 for the smallest Twin to $1399 for the largest King.
  • Are they hypoallergenic? Yes.
  • Eco-friendly? Yes.
  • In-home trial? Yes, 120-day in-home trial.
  • Warranty? Yes, 15 years.

Strengths:

  • Offers 3 levels of firmness, 2 heights, and 6 sizes
  • Great customer service
  • Excellent warranty and return policies
  • Design allows for optimal pressure point relief
  • Mid-section lumbar support provides very noticeable comfort 
  • Outstanding edge support, and when Euro Pillow Top is added, it goes all the way to the edge 

Weaknesses:

  • Difficult to move as handles are ideal for flipping, but not moving
  • Provides a little more 'bounce' than some prefer
  • Poor motion isolation for partners

Bottom Line:

Saatva mattresses are very comfortable for most sleepers, made of high quality materials and offer superior customer service and return policies. If you'd benefit from great lumbar support, don't mind a "bouncier" bed, and are tolerant to feeling your sleep partners' every move, this might be perfect for you.

Eight Sleep

NYC-based Eight Sleep creates 3 mattress models: The Saturn+, made with 3 layers of premium foam to offer a medium-firm mattress, The Jupiter+, providing 4 layers of foam and a medium firmness, and The Mars+, a hybrid of layered foam and sleeved coils offering a medium-soft bed.

Mattresses can be purchased alone, as seen in the Standard Collection, or alongside a bevy of high-tech features, as in the Smart Collection.  

There are none ahead of Eight Sleep when it comes to sleep technology. Slip the Eight Smart Mattress Cover onto your bed to enjoy the many benefits of Eight's state-of-the-art Sleep Tracker.

Set your bed temperature (each side of the bed can be set to different temperatures with dual-zone settings), let the Smart Alarm wake you in your lightest sleep cycle, track 15 factors including your sleeping heart and respiratory rates, REM sleep, and deep sleep, and later view the data to discover your sleeping trends, and sync to your smart home's technology, like clocks, coffee makers - even Alexa, Philips Hue, and Nest.

It can work on any mattress size up to 20 inches tall, and you can also sync your sleep data with other health trackers like the Google Fit for better overall health monitoring.

  • In-home trial? Yes, for 100 nights.

Bear Mattress

Bear Mattresses are available in two models: the original Bear Mattress and the Bear Hybrid. The difference? The Hybrid adds cooling foam, springs, and a hand-tufted, quilted cover (which the website states is "clinically proven to enhance tissue oxygen levels and improve athletic performance, sleep quality, health, and wellness") to the Bear's already existing quadruple-layered cushiness, creating optimal comfort.  

The Bear is offered in several sizes (Twin through Cal King), while the Hybrid can only be purchased in Queen, King, and Cal King.

Bear also sells sheets, pillows, foundations, bed frames, mattress protectors, and handy 'sleep bundles.' While Bear Mattresses are not specifically advertised as hypoallergenic, they are made with eco-friendly certified CertiPUR foams. The website also states that "no chemical fire retardants are used" in their making, and they are made in the USA.

The best part? Bear shares a portion of their profits with Good Sports, a charity designed to help children get access to healthy, physical activity nationwide.  Want to check out a Bear Mattress before ordering? Visit select Macy's stores — they should have some out for you to examine.
