What our customers are saying about their memory foam mattresses
Memory foam mattresses are made with a space-age viscoelastic material that evenly distributes body weight, offering sublime pressure point relief. Known for their support, motion isolation and overall comfort, memory foam beds are available in various thicknesses and densities. Unlike an inner spring mattress, memory foam technology contours to your body shape much better, alleviating aches and pains. The best memory foam mattress is designed with multiple layers to offer everything from extra firm support to more of a pillow top feel with much more precision than that of traditional coil spring models.
Earlier lines of memory foam beds garnered attention for heat retention as sleepers “sank” deep into the mattress. Today’s collections are engineered with highly advanced gel foam that dissipates heat and improves airflow for a cooler, more restful night’s sleep. For those in need of therapeutic support with fewer mid-sleep awakenings, a memory foam mattress may be the ideal choice. As a rule, ultra-high density memory foam mattresses are more costly, but also more durable.
In light of memory foam’s weight sensitivity, heavier sleepers (200 pounds or more) tend to benefit the most from the bed’s contouring properties.
Be advised that memory foam beds by different manufacturers vary greatly in cost and may have similar monikers, but the actual mattress components are much more important than brand name. For a candid look at user experience with several models of memory foam mattresses, we’d like to share some Mattress World Northwest customer reviews.
