Why not start with the closest thing we have to the perfect twin mattress? This Zinus 8 Inch twin-size mattress is easily the best memory foam mattress overall as it truly is a jack of all trades.  

The main reason why this mattress earns the title of “all-rounder” is that it makes no compromises. Every single aspect of this memory foam mattress is catered to meet the average man’s (or woman’s) needs.

This twin-size mattress is built with 3 high-quality foams; a 4.5-inch high-density foam on the bottom for support followed by a 1.5-inch comfort foam and topped off with an additional 2-inch gel and green tea infused memory foam. Each memory foam layer offers its benefit but more on that when we get to the pros.

The exterior of this traditional memory foam mattress is made of soft poly jacquard fabric which is moisture absorbent and quick drying. Additionally, the foam is CertiPUR US certified which is basically a stamp of approval from the US government.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Amazing temp control: The cooling gel really works its magic 
  • Durable: The base foam is super sturdy
  • Excellent back support
  • Well-packaged: The packaging is as professional as it gets
  • Long-term warranty.

Cons

  • Maybe a little too firm for
  • some users
  • It is not the cheapest product
  • on the list.

Measurements: 39” W x 75” L  x41” H 

One of the top twin mattresses from Sleep Innovations, this is by far the best twin size mattress for platform beds, bunk beds, and trundle beds also. It’s an easy win since it literally comes in 2” gel foam and 2” breathable cover for the pillow. It covers a niche but it does it well.

In case you don’t know what a platform bed is; a platform bed is a bed that doesn’t need box springs to set up a mattress. This product makes the setup process even easier as it includes both components and so you don’t need to buy each individually. This is the most affordable mattress on the list.

The standard twin-size mattress comes with dense foam padding and special features but the stand-out feature is the pressure relief feature: a strong beautiful gel memory foam that supports all sleeping styles. 

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Great Sleep: The high density foam mattress is designed for all sleep positions and adds a nice touch to your room décor
  • Easy setup: This is the biggest perk. The quickest and simplest assembly on the list.
  • Comfortable foam padding: although the standard twin mattress has special features to sleep comfortably.
  • Long-term warranty.
  • Certipur US certified.
  • Unbeatable edge support

Cons

  • No temperature regulation system available
  • Machine wash only

3) Linenspa 8 Inch Memory Foam and Innerspring Hybrid Mattress Review

  • Packaging process may leave small brown flecks called carbons in the mattress packaging; These carbons are harmless pieces of plastic and will not...

Measurements: 39” W x 75” L x 8” H

Linenspa did everything it could at the lowest cost possible. This product is not the best on the list in any category but it certainly packs a bang for its buck.

Surprisingly, it does not make any noticeable compromises for the price drop. It is a standard medium-firm 8-inch hybrid twin mattress with a hypoallergenic (unlikely to trigger allergic reactions) memory foam mattress with a sturdy innerspring.

The memory foam mattress also has a quaint knit cover which doesn’t do anything to disrupt the medium-firm feel. You could say it’s pretty kneat? Please don’t stop reading.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Cheap: This product eclipses the others in terms of value for the price. It is a lot cheaper than all the other options and doesn’t lack any vital features.
  • Comfortable: The gel foam and high-quality memory foam make the mattress very relaxing. It is very uniform and so it doesn’t hurt any of the pressure points on your spine
  • Well packaged with simple and easy set up ( not as easy as the platform bed but still it’s not rocket science )
  • Medium-firm quality is the safest option for a mattress as it won’t feel like a rock but you won’t sink in it either.

Cons

  • No temperature regulation system available
  • No CertiPUR US certification.

Measurements: 39″ W x 75″ L x 14″ H

This gel memory foam mattress takes temperature control to a whole new level. Zinus does give it a solid competition but this is the undisputed GOAT when it comes to cooling.

It is slightly thicker than the rest of the memory foam mattress at 14 inches as opposed to the standard 8 inches but it makes up for the thickness (or adds to it if you prefer your mattress thick) by an excellent temperature control system with smart airflow and top-tier cooling gel.

The thickness can also be attributed to the fact that both the memory foam and base foam are high-density.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • The temp control is miles ahead of any other mattress on this list. This is easily the best in the market in terms of temperature regulation
  • Stylish: The charcoal grey and white cover give it a simple classy look 
  • Medium-firm quality is the safest option for a mattress as it won’t feel like a rock but you won’t sink in it either
  • The fourth product on the list with CertiPUR-US certification.
  • Amazing customer service: the sellers provide service 7 days a week.

Cons

  • A little less durable than other mattresses
  • Expensive.

5) Ashley Chime 12 Inch Plush Hybrid Mattress

Classic Brands Cool Gel Chill Memory Foam 14-Inch Mattress with BONUS Pillow |CertiPUR-US Certified |Bed-in-a-Box, Twin
25,115 Reviews
Classic Brands Cool Gel Chill Memory Foam 14-Inch Mattress with BONUS Pillow |CertiPUR-US Certified |Bed-in-a-Box, Twin

  • High-quality memory foam conforms to your body while the cool gel regulates body temperature; porous, open cell design allows for a greater...

Measurements: 38″ W x 74.5″ L x 12″ H

Ashley Chime does a really good job making this hybrid twin mattress. Compared to the other mattresses on this list, this is a thick memory foam twin mattress. At 12 inches, it is at least 2 inches thicker than all the other mattresses.

A quick and easy-to-understand definition for hybrid mattresses would be mattresses consisting of multiple comfort layers; usually latex, gel, and memory foam. The three-layer composition may also contribute to its chunky form.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Comfortable: This innerspring mattress uses high-quality mattress materials in each of its layers and is packed with 360 individual power packed wrapped coils, you read right; 360, that along with the quilted foam make it super cozy
  • Simple packaging, easy to set up
  • Fairly durable
  • Product no.3 with CertiPUR-US certification.
  • Maintenance-free: It is made of hypoallergenic (see? that word again…and this time you know what it is) material and so it does not need to be cleaned every so often.

Cons

  • Not cheap
  • The cooling system is not as good as the other products.

6) TUFT & NEEDLE Twin Mattress

TUFT & NEEDLE - Original Twin Adaptive Foam Mattress, CertiPUR-US, 100-Night Trial, White
14,977 Reviews
TUFT & NEEDLE - Original Twin Adaptive Foam Mattress, CertiPUR-US, 100-Night Trial, White
  • Proven: Over a million people choose us every night. In fact, 95% of our customers keep and love their T&N Original Mattress, Featuring our own...
  • Proprietary foam: Our T&N Adaptive foam is engineered based on customer feedback and provides pressure relief where you need it most. An open-cell...

  • Questions: We pride ourselves on customer service and urge you to reach out to us directly if you have any questions at any point, our expert customer...

Measurements: 39” W x 75” L x 10” H

Tuft and Needle make the best adaptive twin mattress by far. Well, there’s a good reason for that: Tuft and Needle are the makers of adaptive foam.

Adaptive foam is almost precisely like memory foam: both of them work to make sure that you don’t sink in your mattress. The names hint at their key difference.

Memory foam just “remembers” the original shape of the mattress and regains it after you get off the bed whereas adaptive foam is much more resilient. It retains the shape and bounces back much quicker than memory foam.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Maintenance-free: It is made of hypoallergenic material and so it does not need to be cleaned every so often.
  • CertiPUR-US certification: Always a big plus
  • Decent temp control: Cooling graphite and gel beads allows cool sleeping
  • Good customer service: Tuft and Needle are dedicated to their customers with quick replies to emails, texts, calls, or any attempts to communicate.
  • Easy to assemble: Again, it isn’t rocket science. In case you do struggle, the customer service will help you out.

Cons

  • Not especially durable
  • Relatively uncomfortable

7) Vibe Gel Memory Foam 12-Inch Mattress

40,853 Reviews
Vibe Gel Memory Foam 12-Inch Mattress | CertiPUR-US Certified | Bed-in-a-Box, Twin

  • 7 inches of conforming high-density base foam provides surrounding support and responsive relief that helps evenly distribute pressure points in any...
  • Medium-Plush Feel and Adjustable Base Friendly
  • High-quality memory foam conforms to your body while the cool gel regulates body temperature; porous, open cell design allows for a greater...

Measurements: 39″ W x 75″ L x 12″ H

This mattress is the best medium-firm one. It really dedicates its efforts to get the perfect feel. Every one of its features seems tailored to achieve that objective.

The base foam is 7 inches in thickness and super high density so you have a solid mattress. The base foam is topped with a 3-inch and 2-inch gel-infused memory foam so the bed is still comfortable.

That adds up to 12 inches putting this bed comfortably on the chunky side of the scale. The mattress is finished off with a quilted fiber cover to drive home the firm feel.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • CertiPUR-US certification: Doesn’t make too many compromises to get that feel
  • Decent temp control: The gel-infused memory foam puts its money where its mouth is.
  • Amazing customer service: the sellers provide service 7 days a week.
  • Maintenance-free: It is made of hypoallergenic material with a resistance to mould, bacteria, and dust mites and so it does not need to be cleaned every so often.
  • Good packaging: The mattress comes compressed and is super easy to set up.

Cons

  • Medium-firm may not be the quality for you
  • Premium price

8) LUCID 12 Inch Hybrid Mattress

LUCID 12 Inch Twin Hybrid Mattress - Bamboo Charcoal and Aloe Vera Infused Memory Foam - Motion Isolating Springs - CertiPUR-US Certified
7,744 Reviews
LUCID 12 Inch Twin Hybrid Mattress - Bamboo Charcoal and Aloe Vera Infused Memory Foam - Motion Isolating Springs - CertiPUR-US Certified
  • Memory foam infused with bamboo charcoal eliminates odors and cradles your body while you sleep
  • High-quality transition foam infused with aloe vera creates a calming and relaxing sleep environment that promotes daily freshness
  • Enduring and conformable medium-plush support is provided by individually-wrapped, high-quality steel coils
  • Created to provide luxury at an affordable price, this mattress is backed by a 10-year warranty against manufacturer defects
  • Compressed, rolled, and shipped in a box for simple setup; easily fits through narrow hallways and staircases

Measurements:  39” W x 75” L x 12” H 

This is perhaps the most unique product on the list. While the other companies focus on producing the best twin mattress with traditional materials, Lucid memory foam has entered the market with a total game-changer.

So what’s this revolutionary change? Aloe Vera. Fitness nuts and beauty gurus have been raving about this product since probably the dawn of time but it hasn’t gained much traction in the mattress scene.

Aloe vera has numerous health benefits and a ton of medicinal qualities but what makes it stand out here is its freshness. Sleep experts have even claimed it keeps you in REM sleep longer.

So where does the aloe vera fit in? At the bottom of this mattress, the base foam is 8.5 inches thick with 6.5 inches of enclosed coils sandwiched between two 1-inch support foams.

On top of that, we have the star of the show; the aloe vera transition foam. It is topped off with a 2-inch bamboo charcoal memory foam.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Bamboo charcoal is an excellent natural deodorant. This mattress does an excellent job remaining odor-free.
  • Comfortable for those who prefer plush beds, this mattress is really soft
  • Stylish: the white and grey color scheme is simple yet elegant.
  • Good packaging: The mattress comes compressed and is super easy to set up.
  • Long-term warranty and a 100-night trial period (terms and conditions obviously apply.) 

Cons

  • No CertiPUR-US certification
  • Plush quality may be too soft for some users

9) Naturepedic Organic Mattress

Measurements: 38″ W x 75″ L x 11″ D

Naturepedic caters to a niche but it does it well. This is the best twin mattress for those of you who hate chemicals. This mattress is all-American: it was raised on a farm and grazed on fresh grass every day.

Okay maybe not that organic but the first part is true, this product is made in good ol’ United States of America mostly with domestic products (only the fabric is imported.)

It stays far away from any sort of unnatural materials. This means no PVC, formaldehyde, soy, flame retardants, or GMOs. Just pure unaltered organic cotton.

It is a hybrid twin mattress with 6 layers, each made with either cotton fabric, organic wool, or organic latex. Similar to the other hybrid mattresses, these layers add up and make the mattress quite thick at 11 inches 

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Certified: The organic and non-toxic Global Organic Textile Standard gives this product a green light.
  • This mattress is firm and the only one on this list of its kind. Everyone does not appreciate this firmness, but it is perfect for stomach sleepers and great for the spine whatever position you sleep in.
  • No harmful chemicals were used in its production and so it is about as hypoallergenic as it gets.
  • Stylish: The light gold color looks stunning and matches most schemes.
  • Comfortable: Despite not using gel-infused foams, this mattress really is snug. The cotton is a good substitute.

Cons

  • No temperature regulation system available
  • Very, very expensive.

10) Nectar Twin Mattress

Nectar Twin Mattress 12 Inch - Medium Firm Gel Memory Foam Mattress - 365 Night Trial - 5 Layers of Comfort - Breathable Cooling Action - CertiPUR-US Certified Foams - Forever Warranty
2,093 Reviews
Nectar Twin Mattress 12 Inch - Medium Firm Gel Memory Foam Mattress - 365 Night Trial - 5 Layers of Comfort - Breathable Cooling Action - CertiPUR-US Certified Foams - Forever Warranty
  • 365-Night Home Trial - One of the best parts of choosing a Nectar Mattress is the incredible year-long trial period that starts the day your mattress...

  • Nectar Forever Warranty - We guarantee Nectar for as long as you own the mattress. Longest warranty in the business (we checked).

Measurements: 39” W x75” L x10” D

The final mattress on this list might be the final mattress you buy. Seriously, if you’re buying this mattress, be ready to die in it. And don’t panic; we don’t mean it’s going to choke you in your sleep or something. This mattress takes durability to a whole new level.

Nectar has zero commitment issues; this mattress has a lifetime warranty. You heard me right; with Nectar Forever Warranty, you will never need another mattress in your lifetime. That’s a better deal than most marriages. 

The memory foam twin mattress is 10-inches thick with 5 layers making this a relatively thin for a hybrid mattress. It has a standard base foam, a breathable layer, and 3 memory foam layers. This foam bed is never going to forget a thing.

For those of who love free stuff: this memory foam mattress comes with 2 free premium pillows which is a pretty good deal if you ask us.

Now that we have an idea of what the product is, let’s see what the pros and cons are:

Pros

  • Durable: If a product has a lifetime warranty, you can rest assured it won’t fall apart easily.
  • Comfortable: The mattress features 3 layers of memory foam. But makes sure that your weight is distributed perfectly along the surface of the mattress and ensure a relaxing experience.
  • Medium-firm quality is the safest option for a mattress as it won’t feel like a rock but you won’t sink in it either
  • CertiPUR-US certification: Always a good sign when the US government approves of your purchase.
  • Decent temp control: The gel-infused memory foam puts its money where its mouth is.

Cons

  • Medium-firm mattress may not be the quality for you
  • No hypoallergenic guarantee

How to Choose The Best Twin Size Mattress?

Now that you know what the market has to offer, it’s time to make a choice, but how do you that?

A safe bet is to go with the all-rounder, Zinus Green Tea, but unfortunately, it won’t offer you many of the features offered by the other mattresses on the list. This would include Nectar’s lifetime warranty or Naturepedic’s organic composition.

To make this choice, you need to consider many factors and analyze what you prioritize. These factors include firmness, temperature regulation, and perhaps most importantly, price or value for money. After identifying the factors and ranking their importance, it should be a simple choice.

We will discuss these factors in detail when we get to the product buying guide. But before that, let’s ask an important question; who is best suited for a twin mattress?

Who Is Best Suited to a Twin Mattress?

A twin mattress seems like a sound and solid investment but as with any product, this may not be the perfect option for you. 

A twin mattress is small. It is its biggest advantage and at the same time its biggest flaw. This means that there are a large number of people who aren’t suited to use these mattresses.

First and foremost, tall people should just ignore this article entirely, no product on list exceed 80 inches in length so if you’re over or around 6”8, first off congratulations, and secondly, only buy these twin size mattresses if you want your legs to hang till they drop.

This mattress is also not for couples that sleep together. A twin mattress is for one person. That’s it. Maybe you can fit a baby on there but no more. Most of these beds can’t even bear the weight of multiple people.

So, in short, who is it for? Single average-sized people and couples who like their personal space who don’t want their beds to take up half the room space.

Buying Guide

So now that we’ve covered that topic, let’s move to one of the most important parts of this article: your product buying guide.

So as we discussed before, there are a few major factors you need to identify before selecting your ideal twin-size mattress. For this buying guide, we will consider the following features:

  • Firmness
  • Temperature regulation
  • Raw materials
  • Warranty
  • Cost.

The amount of importance you assign to each factor is entirely up to you and your preferences

[su_youtube_advanced url=”https://youtu.be/E3SawP-LzTE”]

Firmness

Firmness is the first thing that comes to mind when selecting a twin mattress for adults. This is something that depends very heavily on your preference.

Some people prefer plush mattresses as they like the feeling of sinking into their bed whereas others may prefer a firmer mattress bed so they stay in place all night. Everyone feels comfortable with different firmness’s.

If you are not sure what firmness is right for you, you can determine it by looking at your sleeping position (The recommended product is in brackets):

  • Side-sleepers prefer plush mattresses (LUCID Hybrid)
  • Back-sleepers prefer medium-firm mattresses (Vibe Gel)
  • Stomach-sleepers prefer firm mattresses ( Naturepedic Organic)

This isn’t a golden rule and will not apply to everyone but this is also the way to choose firmness recommended by sleep experts and doctors.

Temperature Regulation

This is also a very important factor. This depends on the region you live in and the average temperature there. If you live in Alaska, the cooling gel isn’t going to do you any good. But if you’re in Phoenix, unless you want to melt, we prefer picking out a mattress with top-notch cooling gel or beads. 

The Classic Brands mattress was tailor-made to fulfill and exceed expectations in this field. The cooling system on that mattress is simply a cut above the rest.

Raw Materials

The materials used to make your mattress is something most buyers overlook. This is a massive mistake.

Each material feels vastly different from the other, for example, an organic cotton mattress will

feel nothing like a gel-infused memory foam mattress. You will never feel comfortable in a mattress unless it’s made of materials that satisfy your needs.

Furthermore, you may be allergic to materials used to make the mattress. This could be a literal nightmare.

If you are someone with a lot of allergies, we strongly suggest you pick a hypoallergenic product like Vibe Gel or Ashley Chime.

Lastly, some people prefer organic materials as they simply don’t trust or condone the use of chemicals in the production process. For them, Naturepedic Organic Mattress is the perfect pick.

Warranty

When buying a mattress, you definitely need to take into account its warranty, the longer it is, the sturdier and more reliable the product in question is.

Most of the mattresses on this list have a warranty of at least 5 years so this isn’t a worrying factor, but if you really need a twin size bed for the long haul, Nectar designed the perfect product for you. You’ll never have to enter a mattress shop again if you buy that product. 

Cost

Last but by no means the least, you need to set your price range. This is an obvious one. When buying anything, the first thing to do is to check your wallet.

You need to remember that a mattress is a long-term investment so you should set the budget accordingly. A cheaper mattress may seem wiser in the short run but it might come back to haunt you 4 years later when you realize: “I should have spent a little bit more on this mattress because this is kinda uncomfortable.”

If you have the money, our first suggestion is always the Zinus Green Tea mattress because it meets most of our criteria but you are short-pressed for cash, Linenspa is a great option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before finishing the article, we’ll answer some questions that you may have going around your head.

1. Why Is It Called A Twin Mattress?

You must be wondering; “Gee, that bed can’t fit more than one person, where does it find the guts to call it a twin?” It’s a fair question and it’s one that had us stumped.

We did a little digging and what we found out is twin mattresses are called that because they traditionally come in sets of two. So, it’s called a twin because it’s part of a set.

P.S: You can also call it a single mattress but twin is the more famous terminology.

2. Who Will Use This Mattress?

To be frank, twin mattresses are designed for children but that doesn’t mean they are the only one who can use them.

As discussed under the related topic of “who is best suited to a twin mattress?”, single average-sized people and couples who like their personal space who don’t want their beds to take up half the room space are the targeted demographic.

3. Is This The Mattress for a Bunk Bed?

Umm…It’s sort of THE mattress for a bunk bed. You don’t want a bunk bed to have a mattress any larger than a twin because of two reasons: (A) it defeats the whole purpose of bunking in the first place since it will still be huge and thus save no space at all and, (B) if you are over 6’8… Neigh, an adult, you shouldn’t be sleeping in a bunk bed.

4. What is the Best Mattress for a Twin Bed? 

The answer to this question for us is the Zinus Green Tea mattress. It is the perfect mattress and lacks no vital features (We’re not nuts for organic materials and a medium mattress is just fine for us) but it may be different for you.

Conclusion

There is no surefire way to tell which is the best twin mattress for adults. Choosing a mattress is entirely down to your taste and preference, there are many other features we even left out such as thickness and aesthetics because there are so many such factors that contribute to picking the perfect mattress.

Overall, you just need to buy the mattress you feel the most comfortable in and the one which can give you the relaxing and refreshing sleep you deserve.
