When comparing different types of mattresses, once you get through all of the marketing hype and fancy terminology, there are really only a few types of mattresses: mattresses made with coils beneath foam and foam on top of a base of foam. Now, there are different types of foams and ways to make foam, but almost all beds today have some type of foam. In fact, most customers with coil-base mattresses don't even realize there is foam in their mattress!
The fastest growing segment of the mattress business is the solid foam mattress, consisting of a support foam base and topped with a softer memory foam. Go into any mattress store these days and there are more and more memory foam mattresses available.
Why is this type of mattress so popular now? What has caused the shift from the old standard coil based mattresses?
To begin with, a memory foam mattress can support your posture and your weight through density, as opposed to a traditional coil mattress, which relies on the tension of steel coils to hold up your weight. The advantage lies with the memory foam mattress, as that tension from a steel coil places your body on a surface that causes pressure, slows down blood flow and makes for extra pain with people who suffer from physical pain or injuries.
Memory foam mattresses are lighter and easier to make. A mattress full of steel coils can be heavy and hard to manipulate, making it hard to make and harder to flip. In fact, most coil mattresses require you to turn and flip them periodically to even out the wear. A high quality memory foam mattress tends to wear better and hold up longer, and doesn't need to be turned and flipped like its coil counterpart.
Memory foam mattresses are more comfortable due to the lack of pressure, and that comfort can help you fall asleep and stay asleep longer. And since there are no metal coils, you tend to not feel partner movement in the bed, which can keep you from getting long bouts of restful sleep.
While some memory foam mattresses can sleep hot, the Bed In A Box memory foam mattresses we carry at Nest Bedding in our San Francisco, Berkeley - Albany, and Mountain View Ca. stores and online at www.NestBedding.com sleep cooler than most due to the type of foam construction utilized, ensuring proper air flow around and throughout the mattress. Couple that with the natural based fabric covers and you have a memory foam mattress that sleeps cooler than most you will find in the market.
Many memory foam mattress companies use harsh chemicals to pass the fire retardant laws, while the memory foam mattresses we carry pass these strict requirements using non-toxic and non-caustic materials.
So, what are the benefits of sleeping on a memory foam mattress? You sleep longer and deeper due to a reduction in pressure compared to a traditional coil mattress. You don't feel any partner movement and depending on the brand you purchase, you can sleep cooler and more restfully due to the type of construction. Partner those benefits with the durability and affordability of the Bed In A Box memory foam mattresses and you have a compelling case of why you should consider sleeping on a memory foam mattress like the ones found in the Nest Bedding stores throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
