To the newcomers of the online mattress world, buying a mattress despite never having tested it can, understandably, stir some hesitation. Will it be comfortable? Do the reviews ring true? What if I don't like it?
There's also the consideration of price. While there's a bevy of online mattress companies to choose from, the average cost of a top-rated mattress can fall anywhere between $500 and $2,300.
However, price doesn't always equate to comfort. This Amazon mattress, for example, starts at just $250 and has earned an average rating of 4.8 stars.

What is it?
The wallet-friendly Kescas hybrid memory foam mattress features an orthopedic design, supporting the head, shoulders, waist, hips, and legs. It combines the traditional support of an innerspring mattress with the plush comfort of memory foam to provide supportive, cloud-like comfort.
For $250 for a twin, $300 for a full, and $346 for the queen size, the Kescas mattress is covered in a breathable dual-layered soft knitted fabric, which helps release moisture and regulate sleep temperature.
What people are saying
Collecting more than 675 five-star ratings, some reviewers they're shocked that such a high-quality mattress is available for less than $350.
"Oh my goodness, this mattress is shockingly amazing and such good value for the money! It is firm, yet comfortable, with a bit of bounce, but very supportive," says one shopper. "We bought it for my daughter, who is 7 [...and] my husband and I are now considering buying ourselves one because it is THAT comfortable and we are PICKY mattress people!"
"I'm very pleased with this mattress. The bottom layer is thick and structured enough that I don't feel any need for a boxspring (on slats)," writes another user. "But there's a plush top layer that's thin enough I don't get engulfed, but thick enough that it's sooo comfortable. Definitely the most comfortable mattress in the house."
However, if the promise of its 10-inch height is a requisite, some users have noted that the mattress didn't expand to the stated dimensions; "Didn't expand to the 10" as it says. Is only 9"," writes one shopper.

With near-perfect reviews to back it up, this is an affordable mattress that many Amazon reviewers back up. However, while it does come with a 100-night trial, if you prefer to check out a mattress in person before buying, you'll want to skip this online purchase.
