Foam vs. latex and temperature regulation
If you suffer from painful tendons and ligaments (fibromyalgia), you may find relief with a memory foam mattress that reduces pressure points, conforms to your body and offers excellent support. However, “hot” sleepers may fare better with an innerspring or even latex bed, since memory foam does not dissipate heat as well. Innerspring mattresses – whether firm or pillow-top – are generally ideal for extremely overweight individuals as well as those with temperature regulation issues.
It’s estimated that more than 60 percent of menopausal women suffer from sleep problems caused by hot flashes and night sweats. In terms of a more cooling sleep, latex mattresses are equivalent to that of innerspring beds, but with a much longer lifespan (20+years).
