It is not the mattress that gets bedbugs but the bed. Bedbugs are attracted to a sleeping person in a bed. Once a bedbug has had a blood meal off somebody sleeping in that bed they will normally find a hiding place as close as possible to that bed which may or may not be in the mattress. It could be in the sheets, the bed construction, the floor, the walls or furniture or books near the bed. Bed bugs can be kept at bay with mattress protectors.
