Memory Foam Mattresses
If you’re having trouble getting comfortable when it’s time for bed — or worse, suffering from aches and pains from the moment you wake up — it’s time to think about a new mattress. A memory foam mattress is designed to mold to your body’s individual curves to cradle your joints and provide just the right amount of support while you sleep.
We have a wide selection of memory foam mattresses from a variety of manufacturers. We offer memory foam in all standard sizes, and we even have split sets for large Eastern and California Kings to make shipping and moving them easy. You can also order a mattress set with a matching foundation to provide a base that will increase the longevity of your mattress. Shop by size or manufacturer to get exactly what you’re looking for.
Memory Foam vs. Innerspring Mattresses
A traditional coil mattress — also known as an innerspring mattress — provides support and shock absorption with a series of metal coils that contract and press back against your body weight when you lie down. Over time, these parts will lose their springiness, and your mattress will sag or break down. Springs can also press against your body and form uncomfortable pressure points, especially on the hips and shoulders of side sleepers.
A memory foam or gel foam mattress, on the other hand, is a surface that bends and molds itself to your body’s shape, often becoming more pliable when in contact with body heat. Instead of pressing back against your body weight like a spring, these mattresses allow you to sink in and be supported in any position. Memory foam also tends to reduce motion transfer, making them a good choice for people who share a bed with a partner.
Tips to Choose a Memory Foam Mattress
If you like a cool sleeping surface, look for a memory foam mattress that has a comfort or cooling cover. This will help dissipate the body heat that can be trapped inside a memory foam mattress.
It’s also a good idea to look at the number of layers and the content of each layer. Most memory foam mattresses aren’t made of memory foam all the way through. Instead, there’s a layer of memory foam supported by other materials. In general, the thicker the layer of memory foam, the better support and cradling your body will receive.
Finally, be sure to measure the thickness of the mattress and choose a foundation that will bring your memory foam bed to your preferred height. You may also prefer an adjustable foundation that allows you to raise the head of the bed for activities like reading and watching TV.
