The 6 Best Thin Mattresses to Save You Space and Money


This brand is highly recommended by Gholampour. Memory foam is a bit controversial – some people love it, some people can’t stand it – and it’s definitely not the most durable option. But if you love the feel of this material and are looking for a thin mattress, this one might be the winner. It’s infused with a cooling gel that makes for a comfortable night’s sleep, and it has the real feel of memory foam that sinks right in. While not the most durable, the materials meet CertiPUR-US program standards for performance, emissions, and durability.

At 4.5 inches thick, it’s a great choice for sleeper sofas, RVs, or any tight space where a low-profile mattress is a necessity. It’s lightweight and folds up easily, and every time it’s unfolded, it springs back to full shape.

Another bed in a box, this mattress is compressed, rolled up and shipped right to your door. According to the size, it weighs just under 20 pounds, so the unboxing process shouldn’t be too difficult. Just unpack, unpack (be careful not to puncture the mattress when unpacking!) and let it air out. You may need to wait 24-72 hours for it to fully develop, and in a cold environment this process may take longer. As with many other bed-in-a-box options, there may be a slight odor.

What customers say:

Over 2,000 reviews on Amazon give this mattress five stars. Many have purchased it for an RV, boat, or sofa bed, and are impressed with the balance of comfort and support. It’s not easy to find a comfortable mattress that can make a sofa bed feel like a real bed, but this one gets the job done.

Echoing the sentiments of the many rave reviews, one person said, “Wow! I wasn’t really sure if it would perform any better than the flimsy original mattress on my sofa bed, but for the price I thought it was worth it. I weigh 230 pounds and can barely feel one of the bed rails. If I adjust to a different position, I don’t feel the bars at all, so I’m sure any company would find it quite comfortable. Collapse the bed is no longer difficult, the mattress easily compresses and folds into the bed. I wouldn’t say the firm is firm, but it’s definitely not as soft as some thinner mattress toppers I’ve seen.
