About Us

We are a team of sleep experts bringing you the best there is on the market today. We’ve made most of the mistakes already so you don’t have to spend money on sub-par products and uncomfortable bedding.

While we try to personally test and review each product that we feature, there are so many products out there for a small team to test personally each week. There are over 5000 different sleep products and we can’t possibly test and review them personally. Sorry!

We do, however, thoroughly research each and every mattress, bed, pillow or accessory that we write about. We have a strict decision process about which mattresses to include, which products to write about and which to ignore.

Mattress or bedding companies do not pay us to review their products – we are self funded and while we may make a commission from a recommended product, this is not the sole purpose of this site.

Martin, our CEO, has always been troubled by a bad back and he spent thousands upon thousands of pounds until he found the one mattress to solve all his problems. He then decided to start LightSleeper as a side project and try to help as many people as possible to make an informed decision about the mattress they buy and make sure they buy the right one for their needs, not the one we or anyone else recommends the most.
