Sleep impacts every process in the body, from basic functioning to fighting disease. The first step to achieving restorative quality sleep is choosing a mattress that’s best for your body and sleep preferences. That’s why we decided to hand-test and review Titan mattresses. Titan designed a line of mattresses to fit the needs of higher-weight sleepers who were having trouble finding mattresses that provided the support and durability they needed. 

Our Reviews Team assembled this review by compiling our testing information and research to help you decide whether it’s the best match for your sleep needs.

Titan Plus Mattress

The Titan Plus was created specially for higher-weight sleepers (250 pounds or more) and couples looking for a mattress that’s supportive, easy to move on, and durable. This mattress has a steel coil core that promises to prevent sagging and help promote healthy spinal alignment while you sleep.

Additional information

The Titan line of mattresses, which includes the Titan Plus, was designed by Brooklyn Bedding as an option for higher-weight sleepers and couples who find other mattress brands aren’t durable and supportive enough for their needs. The Titan Plus supports up to 1,000 pounds total.

Our expert take

The Titan Plus is an 11.25-inch tall hybrid mattress consisting of four unique layers specifically designed to support sleepers and couples who weigh more than 250 pounds. First is the quilted cover infused with gel foam to help cradle and cool the body when you make contact with the mattress. Second is 2 inches of foam to contour the body and relieve pressure. Third is 8 inches of individually encased coils made from reinforced steel to prevent sagging. Last is a 0.25-inch (¼ inch) base layer to support the coil core for additional durability.

If you tend to get too warm while sleeping, you can add the GlacioTex cooling cover ($100–$250, depending on mattress size). GlacioTex is a hypoallergenic fabric made from fibers with high thermal conductivity, which allows heat to be quickly and effectively wicked away from your body. According to the website description, Titan considers this cover the fifth layer of the mattress.

For sleepers who are higher-weight (250 pounds or more), a firmer mattress tends to be both more comfortable for sleeping and easier to move around on and change positions. If you choose a soft mattress—especially one that’s all foam with no coil core—you’ll be more susceptible to excessive sinkage. Good contouring sinkage can give sleepers the feeling of being “hugged” by their mattress, but too much sinkage can result in misalignment of the spine, especially for stomach and back sleepers.

For higher-weight sleepers, being able to easily move around and change positions is often high on the list of must-haves for a mattress. This includes getting in and out of the bed. A mattress with good bounce can help you transfer your weight and give you an extra spring to shift into a different position or get out of bed. Our testers found that the Titan Plus has great bounce, scoring a 4 out of 5 on our responsiveness Responsiveness describes how much surface bounce a mattress has and how it responds to pressure or the sleeper’s movements, making it easier to move around and change sleeping positions. scale.

To test the bounciness of a mattress, our testers dropped a 10-pound weighted ball from a set height and counted how many times the ball bounced and the quality of the bounce. The Titan Plus generated a bounce score of 4 out of 5.

To combat unwanted sinkage, firm mattresses provide more support at the core of the mattress. This also helps keep your mattress in good shape over years of nightly use. Our testers gave the Titan Plus a score of 8 out of 10 for firmness, so it should be a comfortable match for sleepers who need the extra support.

Firm mattresses with a soft top layer can also be an ideal choice for sleepers with back pain. The Titan Plus has a 1-inch quilted-layer cover embedded with gel foam and, beneath it, a 2-inch foam layer to provide soft contouring and pressure relief. The third layer is made up of individually wrapped steel coils to keep the body on top of the mattress, rather than sinking in. To properly rate this, we used a pressure pad to generate a pressure relief score of 4.5 out of 5. For more information on which mattresses are the best for people with back pain, see our review of the best mattresses for back pain.

Our mattress testers gathered pressure relief information by using a pressure pad. While on their side and back, the tester experienced little to no pressure, indicated by the mostly blue color on the pressure map. Blue indicates no pressure, while Green indicates minimal pressure.

It should be noted that many of the best qualities of this mattress may only be seen as positives for higher-weight sleepers. A mattress this firm would likely be too firm for average- and lighter-weight sleepers, especially those who primarily sleep on their side.

Since we rated the Titan Plus an 8 out of 10 for firmness, it would likely push back on a lighter-weight side sleeper’s shoulders and hips instead of allowing for the light sinkage needed for pressure relief in those areas, causing discomfort and potentially causing spinal misalignment. If you spend most of your night on your side, see our review of the best mattresses for side sleepers.

If you’re looking to enhance your sleep experience even further, you might want to consider pairing the Titan Plus with an adjustable bed base. Titan makes a base that pairs with this mattress, or you can choose from our list of the best adjustable beds—just be sure to do your research to ensure the Titan Plus mattress is compatible with the adjustable base you choose.

Titan advises that it will take about 30–45 days to break in and get used to your new mattress. Even though you’ll have 120 nights to try it out and send it back if you need to, you can’t return it until your trial period has reached 30 days. This is to make sure you’ve given the mattress enough time to break in.

Compared to other hybrid mattresses, we found the Titan Plus one of the most affordable mattress options. This is especially the case when you make your purchase during a promotional event. Several times throughout the year, especially around holidays, you can buy this mattress for up to 32% off the original price.

Our recommendation

Who may love it

  • Higher-weight sleepers who are looking for a durable and supportive mattress
  • Shoppers on a budget will find this is an affordable option, especially during sales
  • Sleepers seeking solid lumbar and back support

Who may want to avoid it

  • Sleepers who want a mattress that feels like memory foam, or who want to sink into the mattress

Our expert opinion on Titan Plus

The Titan Plus is a great choice for sleepers who are considered higher-weight (250 pounds or more) and higher-weight couples. The mattress provides desirable firmness and strong support that’s designed to be more durable than competing brands.

From our tester

“Good supportive mattress. It’s ideal for back sleepers. But, based on our testing this wouldn’t be a good mattress for side sleepers.”

Shoppers should note that average- and lighter-weight sleepers (anyone below 250 pounds) will likely find this mattress too firm. This is especially the case for people who sleep primarily on their sides.
