Proper Mattress Can Improve Sleep Comfort, Reduce Pain, Says American Chiropractic Association

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.

Don’t Just Throw Out Your Old Mattress, Donate It!

Think your old mattress is so uncomfortable or unattractive that it automatically should be thrown away? Think again. There are hundreds of donation agencies across the country that would consider taking your mattress off your hands. Agencies such as GoodWill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Catholic Charities and local homeless or battered women’s shelters just might have a need for your mattress. So, instead of adding to a local landfill with your mattress, you really could do something good with it (and something good for the environment). What’s that old saying – “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? Well, this is a prime example of that. Typically, if your mattress is still in reasonable shape, with no noticeable stains or structural problems, then most organizations will take them. Many of them will even arrange to pick up the mattress from you! Some agencies will not take a mattress without its foundation, so you’ll have to clear that up with them prior to the donation. If you buy a new mattress, and they offer free mattress pick up (where they typically discard the old mattress), try the donation route first with your old mattress. Just think, by doing something kind like this, it just might help you sleep better at night!

What Our Rating and Testimonials Mean


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.

Can you be too heavy for a memory foam mattress?

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.

Your Memory Foam Mattress – How Long Will it Last

Question: Your Memory Foam Mattress – How Long Will it Last?

Answer: There’s alot of skepticism out there with consumers regarding mattresses and how long they’ll actually be supportive and comfortable before breaking down over time. Cheaper pillow top and foam mattresses can break down after only several months to a few years, with the customer being stuck with the mattress either because of a bad or non-existent manufacturer’s warranty or a poorly defined return policy from the retailer. We hear this quite a bit from potential customers. We’re consumers ourselves, and really wanted to find a product that can stand the test of time, while offering an extremely fair manufacturer’s warranty and generous customer trial period. Our mattress, the 10″ memory foam mattress, truly fit the bill for what we wanted to present to our customers. The manufacturer of our mattress performs high pressure, long term roll tests with 330 lb press rollers, simulating 20 years of use. The memory foam and core foam layers of our mattress react to the stress of the test extremely well, barely showing compression (less than 1/4″ remaining compression) issues from the pressure testing. Because of this and the high quality foams and fabric used in the composition of our mattress, the manufacturer offers a 10 year, non-prorated warranty. Because of our success with selling the mattress, we’ve been able to extend our no questions asked money back trial period to a full year (we’ve been offering this for about a year now). Basically, a combination that is unmatched (at least that we’ve seen) in the industry.

A Nice Testimonial for Our Memory Foam Mattress

We got this testimonial recently, and it really caught our attention so we wanted to share it with you:

“Better than expected in every way possible

by dave40261, September 18, 2007

I researched this purchase to death. I just could not justify paying top dollar for the name-brand mattress. Actually even paying the price for this mattress was a stretch. I simply did not expect the mattress to perform up to the hype. After reading the reviews, and given the 1 year guarantee, we pulled the trigger on a Healthy Foundations King Mattress. It arrived quickly, and was in great condition. We opened the bag, let it expand, and slept on it an hour later. There was almost no odor the first night, and none at all by the second night. I have never slept so good! I didn’t realize just how poorly I was sleeping on my other mattress. After a month of use I can say that I am just as happy with it as I was the first day. I have absolutely no regrets about spending the money, and I’m glad I found this mattress before I was convinced to drop almost $3000 on the other choice. This is by far the best furniture purchase we have ever made. Buy one today!”

Recommended Foundation Types for a Memory Foam Mattress

Question or Title: Recommended Foundation Types for a Memory Foam Mattress

Answer: This is a question we get all the time. Memory foam mattresses, in general, require a solid, uniform foundation, like a wood slat foundation with a board (typically cardboard or fiberboard) over the slats, a posture box foundation (basically a wooden frame with a flat top, covered with a nice fabric cover, and typically made of pine or a similar hardwood, covered with some type of particle board), a platform bed or a newer box spring (less than 10 years old, with a rigid, firm spring system – referred to in the industry as foundations these days, rather than box springs). All of these foundation systems are ideal for memory foam mattresses.

Mattress Pads – How Important Are They in Protecting a Mattress?

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.

Does Density Affect How Hot Memory Foam is To Sleep On?

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.
