Would you like to know what type of mattresses are rated the most comfortable? According to the top-rated sleep review site, SleepLiketheDead, it’s the memory foam mattress followed closely by the natural latex mattress. This research is based on actual customer satisfaction data.
Although both are extremely comfortable, they are different. A memory foam mattress conforms to your body’s shape, cradling your body and reducing pressure points. A latex mattress has a firmer, more bouncier feel than a memory foam mattress. It does not change its shape or conform to your body’s contours.
A 100% all-natural latex mattress is made from the sap of a rubber tree and is completely botanical. A memory foam mattress is man-made and made from petrochemicals. (Choose a Certi-PUR US certified mattress for the safest, healthiest memory foam mattress.) An all-natural latex mattress is hypoallergenic, dust-mite free, and antimicrobial. It is the greenest most natural mattress you can buy. (Make sure you are really getting a 100% all-natural latex mattress. Ask if there is any synthetic latex in any “natural” latex mattress.)
Both memory foam and latex are comfortable mattresses, but they are different and neither one will work for everybody. To learn about natural latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses, check out our mattress buyer’s guides.
