Twin beds are a common option for people who need to have sleeping space for one person in the bedroom, as well as those who have more than one child in the same room. Twin beds come in two lengths – the standard twin and the XL twin. The XL twin bed has an extra five inches of length, so it’s ideal for taller individuals who need a little extra room.
Choosing a twin mattress requires you to think about a few different characteristics of the mattress. You need to consider the value, composition, and firmness. Typically, twin mattresses are sorted out by their firmness.
The Best Soft Twin Mattresses
Some people prefer to have a plush mattress at night. You have to find one that’s supportive but still soft so you can remain comfortable. Three chosen options that you should consider include:
The TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze Soft has the amazing temperature regulation technology that Tempur is known for. It draws the heat and moisture from your body so you can rest comfortably even if it’s warm. This helps with your body’s auto-regulation so you sleep better and feel more rested when you awaken.
The Serta iComfort CF4000-Plus is made of carbon fiber memory foam and features Air Support. It conforms to your body and cushions the pressure points, which can reduce aches and pains. It also features patented cooling technology to help you sleep well.
The Sealy Posturepedic Plus Hybrid Brendham Soft features a protective cooling cover with SealyCool Gel Foam for a comfortable night’s sleep. Targeted support takes the pressure off pressure points and helps to provide a comfortable balance between softness and support.
The Best Medium Mattresses
Medium firmness twin mattresses provide support without being too firm. People who change positions a lot in their sleep can often benefit from medium mattresses because they aren’t so firm that they’re uncomfortable when you move around.
The TEMPUR-PRObreeze Medium provides temperature control that helps your body auto-regulate while you sleep. The SmartClimate® Dual Cover System feels cool to the touch to help you instantly enter into rest mode. The different layers of memory foam unique to Tempur-Pedic work together to provide comfort, support, temperature regulation, and pressure relief to give you the best night’s sleep.
The Sealy Posturepedic Plus Hybrid Albany Medium mattress features a cooling foam and a protective cooling cover to help you remain cool as you sleep. The Duraflex Pro Coil Edge System provides just enough flexibility to help keep you comfortable. This medium mattress also has motion transfer reduction to facilitate sound sleep even for those who move around while they’re sleeping.
Purple Hybrid Premier 3 is ideal for all sleepers. The Purple Smart Comfort Grid provides support where you need it so you can enjoy the benefits of support with just a touch of firmness. Open-air channels help to keep you cool as you sleep.
Best Firm Twin Mattresses
Firm mattresses are ideal for people who sleep on their back or stomach because they provide support to help keep the spinal alignment where it should be. Firmer mattresses are also a great choice for people who have mobility issues because they’re easier to move on since you won’t sink into them.
The Stearns and Foster Estate Hurston Firm mattress feature a Tencel cover that’s made from eucalyptus. It offers enhanced airflow to help you remain cool as you sleep. The premium gel foam offers a cushion on top of the IntelliCoil innerspring system while maintaining the mattress’ firmness.
The Purple Hybrid mattress brings together three primary support systems all in one firm mattress. The 2-inch Smart Comfort Grid enhances circulation and provides cushioning for the pressure points, the 7.5-inch support coils support the body with optimal firmness for back and stomach sleepers, and the transition foam base provides motion isolation.
The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Firm mattress features the TEMPUR-ES Comfort Layer that offers pressure relief to give the firm mattress a soft feel without losing the support you need. It also has a removable SmartClimate® cover that’s made of heavy yarn to help keep you cool.
Best Affordable Twin Mattresses
Trying to find the balance between having a mattress that provides comfort and support and one that fits within the budget doesn’t have to be difficult. These three options are the best of both worlds.
The Beautyrest Daydream Medium was designed with comfort and affordability in mind. SurfaceCool Fiber wicks away moisture and helps you stay comfortably cool as you sleep. AirCool Gel Memory Foam enhances the cooling features of the mattress while providing you with support for your entire body. The mattress contours to your body while easing pressure points.
The Sherwood Villa Pillow Top mattress offers a new take on the tried-and-true pillow top design. The double offset Verti-Coil support system is set on top of an orthopedic foundation and a shock-absorbing base. It’s covered by six layers of foam, insulation, and knit ticking providing you with optimal comfort and support throughout the night.
