Thinking about a new mattress? Tired of tossing and turning to get comfortable? Tired of sleeping in that big crater in the middle of your innerspring mattress? Perhaps it’s time to take a look at a durable, long lasting alternative to the traditional innerspring mattress – the memory foam mattress.
Memory foam mattresses are extremely comfortable. Memory foam is temperature sensitive. This means that it uses your body’s heat to mold to the curves and contours of your body. This reduces uncomfortable pressure points and the need to constantly toss and turn to get and stay comfortable. When you do roll over, the memory foam goes back to its original shape (hence, “memory” foam) and then gently molds to your new sleeping position. A memory foam mattress is also very durable and cost-effective. Look for a memory foam mattress with at least a 10-year warranty to ensure quality.
Sweet Dreams With Foam Memory Mattress makes some good points about why a memory foam mattress is superior to a traditional innerspring mattress, but how can you be sure a memory foam mattress is right for you? The only way to know if a memory foam mattress is right for you is to try one in your own home for an extended period (at least 180 days). Buy only from a retailer that gives you a money-back guarantee, not a store credit or “comfort” guarantee (same thing as a store credit).
