For years our favorite mattress was Tuft & Needle – if you’ve been here a while, you probably recognize that brand and remember us raving about it! But since you are supposed to change your mattress every six to eight years, in 2019 it was time for Corrine and Neil to go on the hunt for something new.
During that year, Corrine and Neil went on vacation to Maui. One day while they were there they were walking in one of the downtown areas, and went inside a Cariloha store. We have been MASSIVE Cariloha fans for years because of their sheets. Honestly, they’ve made us pretty big sheet snobs…We do know of an Amazon sheet that is pretty decent, but if you can swing it, Cariloha sheets are out. of. this. world!
Anyway, while they were in the store they asked them if they needed any information on anything, and Corrine and Neil told them that they were already number one fans of their sheets. But, they saw a mattress in there, which totally shocked them because they had no idea that they made mattresses.
They laid down on it, and from that moment they were AMAZED. It was heavenly. A few months later, they replaced their old mattress with a Cariloha and they are still 110% obsessed with it! But more about that later – now that you know why our fave mattress has changed, here are our top three mattress recommendations ranked from “good,” “better,” to “best!”

Corrine got a Linenspa mattress from Amazon when her girls started sharing a bunk bed. This mattress is unbelievably cheap, and it is highly rated with over 64,000 reviews! We’re not going to tell you that this is an insanely comfortable mattress, because it’s not. But is it good? Is it decent? Yeah! Anabelle sleeps on it and has never complained. When Corrine lays down on it, she can definitely say it’s no where near as comfortable as her mattress, but that being said, it’s the highest rated mattress on Amazon.
So if you’re just looking to get a good, functional, decent mattress for your kid’s room, and you don’t want to spend a ton of money, this is a very good option. Corrine bought just the spring mattress, but they have upgraded versions you can buy as well (gel memory foam, or a hybrid of both!).
If you’re looking for an affordable mattress that is still REALLY good quality, Allswell is our second favorite! This mattress is extremely comfortable. Corrine originally got it for Lyla’s room (which is now Millie’s room), and she usually has their guests sleep there when they come into town.
The Allswell mattress has a medium-firm support – so it’s a good amount of firmness while still being comfortable. When Corrine lays down on it to read her girls stories at night, she always ends up laying there longer than she anticipated because it’s so nice to lay down on after a long day! We really do love this option a lot, so if your pocketbook won’t allow for the “best” option below, you can feel super confident in buying an Allswell mattress.
This bedding collection from Allswell is also comfortable and plush! It’s SUPER cozy and we love that it’s neutral enough to go with pretty much any decor.
Corrine ALSO re-bought these mattresses for two of her girls to share a bedroom when they had their 5th baby! Literally every time she goes into their room and lays on one of their beds for a bedtime chat, she says something like, “oh my gosh you guys have the most comfortable mattresses in here!!”

We can only describe this resort mattress as (by far) the most luxurious, wonderful, perfect mattress of all time. It’s the very best mattress Corrine has ever slept on – period, end of story!
Corrine’s and Neil’s old favorite mattress was a little too firm on its own, so they added a really plush, cushy topper on it. After that they ended up loving it, but they don’t know that it was best for their backs. In fact, they’ve had Corrine’s mom and sister come watch their kids while they’ve been out of town a couple of times, and they always had them sleep in their bed while they’re gone. They BOTH told Corrine at separate times that her old bed was too soft, and that it was bad for their backs.
Enter: the CARILOHA RESORT MATTRESS. This mattress is the perfect amount of really plush (like, “you can’t wait to climb into bed every night and it becomes your happy place” plush), but it’s not so soft that it ruins your back. Corrine used to wake up in the morning with pain in her back and neck but she just really wanted that plush feeling when she crawled into bed at night. NOW, she gets the best of both worlds where she still feels like she’s crawling into her own personal cloud (seriously, her happy place), but it’s not SO soft that she regrets it the next morning!
Neil feels the exact same way about the Cariloha mattress, too, which is such a win! How often do you find a mattress that both you and your S/O absolutely love in every way?! They honestly kind of have a hard time traveling now because they’re so picky about their sleeping situation (thanks Cariloha), but all joking aside, it’s a pretty great problem to have if you ask us!
(Side note: the Airbnb that Corrine and Neil traveled to at Lake Arrowhead a while ago had ALL Cariloha sheets and mattresses – soooo just ANOTHER reason you should totally book a getaway there if you can! Also, it would be such a great way to go try out a Cariloha mattress before you buy!)
We really thought there was no possible way that the adjustable bed frame that Corrine and Neil just got would be included in this 35% OFF discount, but it is!!! (Use code MINTARROW35 at checkout).
It by far was the very most helpful thing for Corrine when she was on bed rest for with Bobby. She absolutely loves that you can put it into zero gravity mode, that’s super comfortable for lounging, she could raise the back for eating, reading, working, anything where she needed to be sitting up and supported. And there’s even a snoring mode where you can sleep with your head elevated slightly so that someone who snores a lot is less likely to snore. She has actually tried it with Neil and it remarkably works well.
It also has a vibration mode for your back, your feet, or both at the same time. You can raise the back to support pillows, or to not support pillows. You can just raise the back, or just raise the feet, or raise both. It also has a light feature at the bottom, for illuminating the floor just enough to get out of bed safely.
Here’s all the general info on the Cariloha mattress that you may be wondering about:
- How is it for your back and neck? AMAZING. It adapts to your body shape, alleviating pressure off the body’s main contour points – plus the firmness is just right.
- Does it get hot? Not at all, and this is coming from someone who runs hot! This mattress comes with a Flex-Flow base foam which improves airflow to help you sleep cooler.
- Is it clean? Yes! How cool is this?…Cariloha mattresses naturally eradicate dust mites, and repel odors. *Adds to cart immediately*
- Shipping costs? Shipping is FREE!
- Do they have a trial period? They sure do. Try it out for 30-100 days and, if you’re not completely in love with it, it’s fully refundable and returnable! Only available in the contiguous U.S.
We’ve been sleeping with Cariloha sheets on our bed for YEARS now and we’ve tried soooo many (and seriously we mean SO. MANY.) other good sheets out there, but none compare to the amazingness of Cariloha. We’re talking silky, soft, slide into bed and feel like you’re straight up IN HEAVEN bamboo sheet PERFECTION.
They’re also three degrees cooler than other bamboo sheets which, like we said above, is A BIG DEAL because Corrine runs HOT so she needs her bed COOL!
We’ve owned both the classic and the resort and the resort are just more luxurious and definitely our fave! But Corrine definitely isn’t mad about it when she washes their resort set and use their classic sheets. They love them too and even the set Corrine bought years ago is still soft and wonderful.
Right now until 10/21 you can get the classic sheets for 35% off and over $120 off the resort sheets with code MINTARROW35 at checkout!
PRO TIP: don’t use fabric softener on these, it will actually ruin the softness of the bamboo!!
Cariloha discount: We have a SUPER HOT deal on Cariloha products sitewide but this only goes until 10/21!!! Use the code MINTARROW35 at checkout to get 35% OFF sitewide+ over $120 off the Resort Sheets!
Corrine’s exact mattress is the Resort Bamboo Mattress in a California King. If you buy the same one as her with the discount, you’re getting almost $875 OFF! Huge savings!
We hope this post helped you decide on the best mattress for your life right now! We truly can’t recommend Cariloha more, but Allswell is a GREAT, affordable option – and Linenspa is a good, super cheap mattress – perfect for something like a kid’s room. And while you’re bed shopping, make sure to check out our favorite kids’ bedding (Beddy’s for life!), and the bedding Corrine puts on top of her Cariloha sheets that she absolutely loves in her bedroom.
