How to choose the best memory foam mattresses

A memory foam mattress moulds to your body’s shape on contact, evenly distributing your weight into a comfy sleeping position. The hypoallergenic mattress technology also keeps health problems such as asthma at bay to help provide an uninterrupted night’s sleep.

Available in all sizes and firmness ratings, we stock everything from single to super king and king size memory foam mattresses to suit all needs. These mattresses are cost effective and high in quality, providing flexible cushioning and support which is tailored to your specific body type.

What is a memory foam mattress?

Memory foam was originally developed by NASA. This technology is used to provide high levels of comfort and support. Consisting of viscoelastic foam, the breathable material reacts to body temperature while allowing air to pass through, conforming to your shape without overheating. To find out more, check out how to choose the best memory foam mattress. 

Which memory foam mattress is best for me?

 
The best memory foam mattress will depend on a number of factors. Firstly, consider your sleeping position. If you sleep on your back you’ll need a medium firm mattress to support your spine and avoid any pressure points. However, if it’s too firm it may not give you the correct level of comfort. 

It’s a balancing act between achieving the optimum level of support without sacrificing comfort.  If you’re a front sleeper, you’ll need a firm mattress that prevents your back from arching. If your back is not supported properly, it could put pressure on your internal organs and lead to long-term health issues. 

Side sleepers need a medium firmness that moulds to the shape of your body and also prevents those pressure points from affecting your neck, shoulders, lower back and hips. Secondly, your physical size and weight plays a big factor in choosing the right memory foam mattress. If you weigh under 80kg, a standard memory foam mattress should be dense enough to give you the support you need. If you’re a little on the heavier side, you may want to choose a more robust option such as Reflex foam. This type of memory foam is denser and provides a firmer feel.  

Memory foam tends to hold heat more effectively than pocketed sprung mattresses. If you suffer from hot flushes at night, you may want to look for a memory foam mattress with a CoolGel layer. This will keep your sleeping environment cooler and more comfortable. 

What’s the difference between memory foam and pocket sprung mattresses?

The main difference between pocket sprung and memory foam is the construction. Pocket sprung mattresses are made with a number of internal springs. While each spring can work independently of its neighbour, they can also work as a matrix. The spring mattress design prevents you from ‘sinking into’ the mattress and holds your body up, rather than moulding to the body shape. Pocket springs provide support with minimal cushion, depending on the firmness level you choose.  

Memory foam is made from a single piece of foam with a dense matrix. The adaptability of the foam means that it conforms to your body shape, adjusting even if you move around at night. When you remove the bodyweight from the foam, it returns to its original shape. Over time, your memory foam mattress will ‘remember’ your body shape, moulding instantly to your form when you get into bed. This construction means that memory foam mattresses: 

• Spread the weight evenly, conforming to the shape of the body 

• Encourage you to adopt a healthy sleeping position 

• Improve posture 

• Adapt to your movements, cradling your body and avoiding pressure points 

• Banish aches and pains, especially joint pain. 

How many years does a memory foam mattress last?

The average lifespan of a single bed memory foam mattress is between 8-10 years. As with all beds, mattresses and bedding, regular maintenance will make the most out of memory foam. With the right amount of TLC, a memory foam mattress can last even longer due to its durable construction. If you notice sags or decreased comfort, the time to replace your memory mattress may be approaching.

Designed to combat dust mites and bed bugs, the hypoallergenic interior of memory foam is suitable for those who suffer with irritations while they sleep. To maintain freshness and good hygiene, regular cleaning and care is essential. Memory foam is among the easiest mattress types to clean, requiring nothing more than a dry cloth and a vacuum cleaner to keep on top of cleanliness.

Are memory foam mattresses firm or soft?

Memory foam mattresses come in a range of comfort levels to suit your specific requirements and sleeping preferences. While it is generally a more plush design in comparison with traditional spring mattresses, memory foam can be purchased in firmness ratings ranging from soft to extra firm.

Due to the cushioned memory foam layer, they sink in deeper than other types of mattresses, meaning they will typically have a more supple top layer than that of a standard mattress. If you prefer a firmer mattress, the options at the top end of the firmness scale will provide the balance and support you need.

Are memory foam mattresses good for your back?

Memory foam helps to promote a healthy spinal alignment through shaping to the individual contours of your body. The material has been chosen by many to help with interrupted sleep caused by night time aches. They are suitable mattresses for back pain and joint trouble due to the orthopaedic support targeted to the body’s pressure points.

With similar benefits as those offered by our specialist orthopaedic mattresses, the responsive mattress design is made to mould your body into a position where you feel most comfortable. Through allowing you to sink deeply while providing support, single memory foam mattress ensure even body support, reducing strain on the back.

Can you get memory foam mattress toppers?

Yes. These are a great idea if you want a firm mattress but also want the moulded comfort and support that memory foam provides. They are great for side sleepers who want a softer feel when they snuggle down at the end of the day. They’re also a cost-effective way to prolong the lifespan of your mattress. Memory foam mattress toppers are an affordable alternative to buying a new memory foam mattress. And as memory foam retains heat more effectively, they’re also a warm option during the colder months. Do remember, though, that memory foam mattress toppers cannot be washed like other toppers.
