Compare the Best Mattress Brands Before Shopping for a New Mattress

It’s important to find the right fit.

What is the best mattress brand? Well, that depends. The best mattress brand is the one that best fits your sleep needs and comfort preferences.  If you’re thinking about purchasing a new mattress from Beloit Mattress Company in Beloit, WI, you may be wondering how Beloit mattresses stack up against other well-known mattress brands.

Let’s take a look at some of the top mattress brands to see how they compare with Beloit Mattress Company. Keep in mind when comparing best mattress brands:

  • Do not assume that a mattress is best suited for you just because it has a high rating. You should learn about the pros and cons of any mattress before buying to make sure that it is the best mattress brand for your individual sleep needs and comfort preferences.
  • Affordable, alternative brand mattresses rate similar to – and sometimes better than – more expensive, brand-name options.
  • The type of mattress you buy is often more important than the mattress brand.

What Are the Most Popular Mattress Brands? 

In the U.S., the most popular mattress brands are Sealy, Serta, Simmons, and Tempur-Pedic. Each mattress brand has its own positives and negatives. For comprehensive reviews to help you compare these and other national mattress brands, check out SleepLikeTheDead.com or GoodBed.com. Both of these sites rate different mattress brands based on consumer feedback and product tests to help you narrow down what is the best mattress brand for you.


Sealy is a brand of mattresses marketed and sold by Tempur Sealy International. Sealy has 25 U.S. plants and a 17.8 percent share of the nation’s mattress sales. Sealy sells the majority of its mattresses under its three main brands: Sealy Posturepedic, Stearns & Foster, and Bassett. Sealy makes four different types of mattresses: traditional innerspring, half foam/half innerspring hybrid, gel memory foam, and gel latex foam.


Serta was formed by a group of independent mattress manufacturers in 1933. Today, Serta is a privately held company owned by six licensees, with National Bedding Company, LLC, being its largest shareholder. Serta is the largest mattress brand in the United States, and the company is widely known for its “Counting Sheep” advertising campaign. Serta offers three main types of mattresses: innerspring, memory foam, and memory foam hybrid.


The Simmons Bedding Company was founded in 1870, and it is one of the oldest companies of its kind in the United States. Simmons’ flagship brand is Beautyrest. In addition to operating 18 manufacturing facilities in the United States and Puerto Rico, Simmons also licenses its products internationally. The types of mattresses manufactured by Simmons include: innerspring, memory foam, and hybrid.


Tempur-Pedic was the first mattress company to offer a 100% memory foam mattress. They continue to be a top seller of memory foam mattresses.


How Does Beloit Mattress Company Compare to Name-Brand Mattress Manufacturers?

Beloit Mattress Company is a family-owned and operated mattress factory and showroom that was founded in 1929 in Beloit, Wisconsin. Because Beloit Mattress Company isn’t a large, multi-national mattress chain, our mattresses are what are sometimes referred to as an alternative brand mattress.

What is an alternative brand mattress? An alternative brand mattress is simply a mattress that is made by a company other than the multinational mattress manufacturers listed above. Alternative brand mattresses are usually made by smaller, local mattress manufacturers. Because Beloit is an alternative brand, some people may assume that a Beloit mattress isn’t the same quality as one you might find in a national chain store. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. As we mentioned above, alternative brand mattresses rate similar to – and sometimes better than – more expensive, brand-name options. So, for many people, an alternative brand mattress – like Beloit Mattress Company – is the best mattress brand, beating out the national mattress manufacturers.
