Memory foam mattresses have become extremely popular in the last decade. With so many styles available, it's easy to find the right firmness to suit you. While memory foam can be extremely soft, it can also provide excellent support and can be a great solution to some sleeping issues. So, Why Choose A Memory Foam Mattress?
WHAT IS MEMORY FOAM?
Memory foam is a responsive foam that responds to heat and pressure. Because the foam reacts to certain conditions, it provides a unique sleeping experience for everyone. Its ability to provide custom comfort makes it an extremely popular choice among couples of different weights.
MEMORY FOAM DENSITY
Whether you enjoy a sinking feeling or prefer to feel completely supported, there's a type of memory foam to suit you. Like traditional mattresses, memory foam also ranges from to soft to firm depending on the density you choose. This makes it a great choice if you suffer from back and neck pain. Choosing a firmer memory foam will provide support to the spine and neck whilst allowing the joints to sink in. Softer memory foam is ideal for those that prefer a sinking feeling or like to sleep on their side.
IS MEMORY FOAM RIGHT FOR ME?
Memory foam is a great choice for anyone that suffers from aches and pains. However, it’s important to keep in mind that there are other materials which can be closely mirrored to memory foam when it comes to pressure relief. Therefore, you shouldn’t purchase a memory foam based on this preference alone.
Mattress purchases should always factor in comfort preferences. Memory foam tends to create a 'stable cradle' effect. Since the foam responds to heat, the area you are laying on will become softer and cause you to sink into the mattress. While the areas without body-heat will remain firm. This will create a cradle-like effect which isn't for everyone and is something to consider.
Memory foam tends to be more expensive than the average mattress but when taken care of can last between 8-10 years. Making it one of the longest wearing mattress styles and a good investment.
