Here’s a recent press release from the American Chiropractic Association that has some really good information on what to look when shopping for mattresses and pillows:
“A good night’s sleep is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle; however, an estimated 70 million Americans complain of sleeplessness. This October, during National Chiropractic Month, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is offering advice to help consumers select comfortable mattresses and pillows that can help limit unnecessary back and neck pain.

Shopping.Com – Why We Use Their Consumer Testimonial Database For Our Web Business
Shopping.Com’s testimonial database, powered by Epinions, is a trusted, well known source for unbiased reviews of consumer’s shopping and product experiences with a given retailer. Because of the nature of our business, in which our products are offered strictly on-line (no ability for the consumer to try out our products prior to purchase), we really needed a mechanism for consumers to be able to review honest and unbiased testimonials of our products. Also, we wanted customers to see reviews based on customer service experiences that our past customers have had. We take pride in our customer service, and really try to differentiate ourselves from other web retailers in this area.

Question: Can you be too heavy for a memory foam mattress?
Answer: This is a question we get pretty often. We generally recommend our memory foam mattress for those up to 250 lbs. Our mattress’s memory foam layers were put together to cushion up to these weights, but may not have enough cushion for those over 250.

Question: Mattress Pads – How Important Are They in Protecting a Mattress?
Answer: A good, high quality mattress pad can help protect your mattress in several ways. One of the most important protection measures a mattress pad can provide is to keep potential allergens at bay. Bacteria, mold, dust mites and other allergens that can penetrate a mattress can be difficult to remove and clean. A good mattress pad will help trap allergens before they get into a mattress – something critical for allergy sufferers.

Our question for today is:
Will a lower density foam or higher density foam be hotter to sleep on?
Boy, that is a tough question. I can’t say I have a definitive answer for you. We’ve tested a lot of memory foams, and talked with many manufacturers about this issue, but I’ve never heard that density is the issue here. Instead, I think that it is more dependant on the particular characteristics of that memory foam.

We are starting a new series of posts answering some of the questions we’ve been getting that people are having a hard time finding answers to.
Today’s question is:
How easy is it [a memory foam mattress] to move around during the night…or for other activities?
It really depends on the type of memory foam used in making the mattress. We had this issue come up fairly often when we sold the “leading brand” of memory foam many years ago. This was because their memory foam is dense and firm at room temperature – and softens a great deal when in contact with your body (your body temperature softens the foam). So where you sleep is soft, but the foam over the rest of the bed stays firm. For some people, they felt it was difficult to roll over or move on the mattress because they would be kind of cocooned in the soft foam.

We introduced our new 10″ Memory Foam Mattress in late July, 2006 – and the response has been overwhelming. So much so that our manufacturer literally hasn’t been able to keep up. Which has put us in a strange situation of having a terrific product that is getting great reviews and not having any inventory to actually sell.

Healthy Foundations Memory Foam Mattress Topper was chosen “Best Value” by the Wall Street Journal in their article on memory foam mattress pads.
What a weekend – it started out with a bang on Friday when the Wall Street Journal ran an article on memory foam mattress topper pads and named our topper pad “Best Value”. Then I spent the weekend at an Internet Marketing Seminar while Brian got hit with the calls and emails. All in all it has been great publicity for our topper pad, and you can read the article at The ABCs of Getting Some Zs .
