Memory foam has become popular in the mattress industry, compared to other innerspring mattress options. The draw of memory foam is because the mattress reduced pressure by conforming to the body’s weight. Most people say that switching to memory foam has improved their sleep and reduced aches and pain. Here are a few tips on how to invest in a memory foam mattress.
Do you need a new mattress – You should consider buying a new mattress if your mattress dips in areas. Most often a topper can fix these problems and will cost a fraction of the cost. But if your mattress is damaged beyond repair, buying a new mattress is a better solution.
Density – When investing in memory foam the higher the density of the foam the better support your mattress will provide. Firm mattresses should range between 5-6 pounds in density. For a softer mattress choose a density of 3-4 pounds.
Ratings – Ratings from users are a good way to gauge the quality of the mattress you intend to buy. Always weigh the pros and cons of each review.
Memory foam topper – If your existing mattress is in good shape and you still want to try memory foam, investing in a memory foam topper is a good idea.
Durability and design – If you are looking for a memory foam mattress, look at a 10-inch mattress as it will last you at least 30 years. Hybrid memory foam mattresses are also available, which offer several different layers.
