Mattress shopping is already a hassle, and deciding between different memory foams make it an even harder task.
One of the most popular questions we get is “do memory foams really differ that much, or is it all just marketing hype?”.
The quick answer is: it depends on what you care about.
There are three main types of memory foams on the market: visco-elastic, gel-infused and plant-based. Each offers a different level of heat dissipation, bounce and other features.
This article will help you understand the differences among these three types of foam and hopefully make it easier for you to select the best memory foam mattress for your needs.
Why Do People Buy Memory Foam Mattresses?
Quality, cost and comfort are the most reasons people select a memory foam mattress.
Memory foam mattresses are often considered the most comfortable type of mattress because memory foams are very malleable and conform well to any body shape, which helps to evenly disperse body weight over the surface of the bed & to relieve pressure points in joints such as the hips and shoulders.
With less pressure concentrated on any part of the body, the body’s blood circulation increases and less pain develops, resulting in a better night’s sleep.
Most memory foams are also antimicrobial, keeping dust mites and other nasty bugs at bay, which allows for a healthier sleeping space.
