I know a mattress is important, so I want to buy as good of a mattress as possible without spending too much money

I’ve narrowed down to 3 mattresses

1. Zinus 8 inch memory foam: $129 (Made in China)

2. Grantec 10 inch memory foam: $180
(Made in Indonesia)

3. Zinus 13 inch Eurotop hybrid $300
(Made in Italy)

I’m really considering getting the 13 inch mattress m, as I prefer plush mattresses since I’m a side sleeper, I have a very low bed frame, and $300 is apparently still considered cheap for a mattress. Most importantly, that mattress is made in Italy, and it has several safety certifications that the other mattresses don’t (since I’m spending hours every day on it, I don’t want to be exposed to harmful VOCs that may be present in the other Asian made mattresses)

Is there no one in your offline life that can help you with this decision?

Edit: But if I must...go with the Zinus 13 inch Eurotop hybrid

People joking about your post and this post may turn out to be trolling but I was seriously going to make a similar post LOL

I’m also wondering if I can skip the bed frame/box spring and just plop a mattress on the floor and call it a day.

you do not want to put memory foam directly on the floor/carpet. it absorbs moisture and doesnt vent. it'll get mold.
first hand experience in med school. had to toss the mattress after a year.
