Is there a “best mattress for couples” out there? If you love your partner but hate sharing a bed with them, it’s possible that the mattress you own might let them sleep soundly, but makes you miserable. We’re here to discuss the best type of mattress for couples with different preferences to ensure you and your partner can find a mattress that you’ll both enjoy. 

If you’re looking for the best gift to give your significant other this Valentine’s Day, a custom mattress could be a great investment. Need advice on how to choose a mattress for you and your loved one? Here are our recommendations. 

What type of mattress is best for couples? 

Though it is a common question, there is no distinct answer because no two people will take to a bed the same way. Every individual has their own unique sleeping habits and needs including their sleeping position, what areas of the body they need to support, and their preferred mattress comfort level.

Let’s say you prefer to sleep on your side, but your partner likes to sleep on their back. A standard mattress with one comfort level is not going to benefit both sleepers. Your partner will need a firmer mattress component to support their back while you would sleep better on a softer mattress to conform to your body. But if you and your partner suffer with some sleep disturbance issues, here’s what we recommend for those situations. 

Not sure what type of mattress is right for you? take the Texas Mattress Makers Quiz to see exactly what you need for a perfect night’s rest.

Best mattress size for couples 

A queen or king mattress is large enough to fit two people comfortably with the inclusion of pets or kids, making them the ideal mattress size for couples. But as mentioned above, sometimes a standard mattress can’t address both you and your partner’s needs. But is it possible to have the best of both worlds? Yes! Here at Texas Mattress Makers, we specialize in custom dual-comfort mattresses so neither of you have to compromise on comfort

If you’re looking for a mattress with space and adjustability, split beds for couples could be the answer for you and your valentine. Some great examples are the split king mattress or the dual comfort mattress. A split king involves two different Twin XL mattresses within one bed frame, meaning it’s not two separate beds, simply two different mattresses that make up a king-sized bed. Split king mattresses are commonly used with adjustable frames so that each partner can sleep in the position that works best for them. A dual comfort mattress is a custom-fitted mattress that has different components on each side of the mattress for a perfect sleep fit for each individual. 

Best mattress for minimal partner disturbance

If you’re looking for the best mattress for couples who toss and turn, memory foam, or alternative foams, and pocketed coil springs are typically the most effective mattress materials for isolating movement and not waking up your partner. Traditional memory foam is made of polyurethane foam that is viscoelastic, meaning it responds to pressure in a way that isolates motion and provides natural support to your body. On the other hand, pocketed coils contour to the shape of your body, isolating your movement to your side of the bed. For example, our Paris Mattress is made with memory foam and uses pocketed coils to minimize partner disturbances and caresses the body for a sound night sleep. 

Our picks for mattresses that minimize disturbance:

Best mattress for different weight couples

Height and weight are important factors when choosing a mattress, but when you’re shopping for two individuals with unique body types, it can be challenging. Hybrid mattresses combine different elements for support and comfort to meet you and your partner’s sleep needs.
