If you like Amazon, and your sleep, then why not combine the two with an Amazon mattress? We know, right. It's a winning combination. Especially with the holidays so hibernating is looking even more appealing after the year we've all had, not to mention the colder weather getting a firmer grip on the nation.

We've seen several mattresses on Amazon listed on their store which tick all the right boxes for us, so long as you have an account with them. Layered design: check; promises to deliver a more comfortable night's sleep: check; available in different sizes: check. It's all going on. And none of them will break the bank either with the most expensive option on our list being around $600. As with anything you buy on Amazon, too, you can expect to receive first-class customer service and a quick delivery - although this would be even speedier if you were an Amazon Prime Member, of course.

With a total of five stars available, the Sweetnight Breeze has scored 4.6.

Overall it's scored 4.2 out of 5 reviews on Amazon with rave reviews being shared about how it helps to relieve any aches and pains during sleeping. Those who have awarded the mattress four stars were very complimentary.

On the flip side it seems like the mattress takes a while longer than the disclosed 72 hours to fully expand for some. Stains have also been present upon removing the mattress from the box, but this doesn't seem like a common occurrence. You will need some help to lift it, too, because it's heavy.

How we chose the top Amazon mattresses

It was no easy task, believe me. There's just so many good options out there which all seem to be saying the same thing about how they can improve your sleep and keep you cool whilst offering you a competitive trial package. What did we do? Sifted through 341 results and narrowed down the list wearing our mattress expert hats.

We've taken into account the brand reputation, materials used, the price and of course those all important customer reviews. You'll often find that the majority of positive and negative comments say the same thing, especially with foam mattresses. And after a short time research, all mattresses look the same but with our help, we're confident you've got the pick of the bunch.

It's worth noting that the practice of looking after your mattress is applicable across all brands, not just Amazon. Always use the best mattress protector you can. A lot of the mattresses have removable covers for washing but a mattress protector will help to protect it from any spills, stains and (grose) dust mites, plus help to pad out any uneven areas for a short while. They'll go a long way in helping you to how to sleep better (even better than before), too, as many offer cooling effects.
