Best Mattresses for Teenagers in 2021: The Official List

Between high school, growth spurts and growing pains, if there’s one thing teenagers need, it’s good sleep. For this list, we’re looking at mattresses with the highest reviews and most advanced support technology to help give your child the eight-plus hours needed for overall health.

Best Overall Mattress for Teenagers

Revive Series 5 Full Mattress

Eco Flex Foam ✓ Memory Foam ✓ Individually-Wrapped Coils ✓
There is perhaps no other time in life when the support of a mattress is more critical than the teenage years. From age 13 to 19, physical growth happens (whether you, as a parent, like it or not!), and gains in muscle, weight and height can take a toll on the joints. (The right mattress, if nothing else, helps to ensure proper spinal alignment.) With targeted innerspring zones, the Revive Series 5 meets the criteria for orthopedic comfort; the contouring memory foam and soft-stretch knit cover are bonuses.

Best Twin Mattress for Teenagers

Revive Series 4 Mattress

VertiCoil Innerspring ✓ Eco Flex Foam ✓ Tri-Zone Design ✓
With coiled innersprings, contour foam and a tri-zone design (which means support is amped up at the three heaviest areas of the body), the Revive Series 4 asks you to reconsider your notions of what a Twin mattress means. No longer do you have to graduate to a Full for a teenager – if you’re on a budget or short on space, the advanced technology in this one will keep you well-assured that you’re child’s bed is as comfortable as possible, even through growth spurts and weight changes. Other great features include natural fiber material (not made from iffy chemicals) and a medium comfort feel.

Best Full Mattress for Teenagers

H2 Medium Mattress

Hybrid ✓ Cooling Cover ✓ Bed in a Box ✓
A customer reviews section full of adoration and praises aside, this mattress flies off the shelves, so to speak, and whenever it is back in stock, it goes fast – a telltale sign of the Revive H2 Full’s high-quality comfort. Features include a cooling cover, hybrid mechanisms and a 20-year warranty. These mattresses also come in a box, and unboxing them is just as delightful as sleeping on them; if your teens are craving a bit of (fun) responsibility, have them involved in the setup process!

Best Memory Foam Mattress for Teenagers

Tempur Pro Breeze Mattress

Adjustable Base Compatible ✓ Memory Foam ✓ Medium Feel ✓
Tempur-Pedic mattresses are guaranteed comfort – choosing one over the other is about the type of comfort your teen prefers. For Best Memory Foam for Teens, we’re calling out the Pro Breeze, not only because the customers have spoken, but also because of its futuristic (way ahead of its time) technology. For one, there’s the slow-release climate control, which clocks in at different phases throughout the night, checking the temperature and adjusting as necessary. There are also seven layers of adaptability, each working with the original TEMPUR material for ultimate contour and support.

Best Gel Mattress for Teenagers

Revive Gel Springs Medium Mattress

Gel springs ✓ Memory foam  ✓ Wrapped coils  ✓

This teen-friendly mattress from Revive, made up of gel-infused foam, is for any child, teen or adult who prefers that singular feel of high-quality memory foam – the way it molds and slowly rises and forms around you – but tends to wake up in the middle of the night due to sweats/overheating. This mattress, in other words, is for the one who wants it all; in a world that will tell them no, this mattress is the perfect way to tell your teen, “yes.” Soothing gel beads swirled between layers of EcoFlex Revive comfort foam define this bestseller.

Best Cooling Mattress for Teenagers

Revive R1 Plus Mattress

Revive Graphite foam ✓ Natural fibers ✓ Cooling cover  ✓

As far as cooling mattresses go, the R1 is on the lower end of the price spectrum, making it a winner for affordability – but that’s just small talk. Here’s the heart of the matter: CertiPUR-US high-grade memory foam, graphite foam, a cool-to-the-touch soft-stretch knit cover, naturally-sourced fibers and a 20-year warranty. Need we go on?

Best Firm Mattress for Teenagers

Revive Premier Firm Mattress

Firm ✓ Innerspring  ✓ 100-day sleep trial  ✓

The defining feature of the Premier is, hands down, the Euro top, which translates to direct, immediate relief for pressure-bearing joints. This is because the Revive Euro top is an additional layer of cushioning – without feeling like a pillow. An extra-high-density fill at the utmost top surface layer confirms an extra-supportive core, banishing sinking or sagging and promoting orthopedic happiness.
