Comfort level and quality are the two most important factors when purchasing a mattress. You want to get a good night’s rest every night and make sure that your mattress is going to support you for many years to come. When choosing a mattress, comfort is obviously the main concern and mattresses range from ultra-firm to ultra-plush. Think about when you first got your current mattress, how plush or firm was it and would you want to change it? Consider any other mattresses you have slept on, like those in hotels, and what you did or did not like and decide what level of comfort will be best for you. Mattresses can be constructed of several types of materials that contribute to the comfort level, with different benefits for each.
An innerspring mattress is the most common type and is made of tempered steel coils surrounded by layers of cushioning and insulation for support. Newer innerspring mattresses include pocketed coil springs which are different from a traditional innerspring because each coil is wrapped in fabric to absorb motion. It’s a great option for light sleepers who have a restless partner. This also extends the life of your mattress because coils will not easily pop out.
Memory foam mattresses are made of polyurethane and work by molding to the shape of your body. People like memory foam because after you get up, the foam goes back to its original shape meaning it is a custom fit each night. Different levels of comfort are achieved based on the amount of foam used and if there are springs or not. Some people feel that memory foam mattresses do not provide enough support or can cause overheating. Since memory foam envelops you, it can be uncomfortable if you already are temperature sensitive when you sleep.
Latex mattresses are made of synthetic or natural rubber and will instantly mold to the shape of your body. Latex is resilient and breathable, keeping you from getting overheated. Also, many latex mattresses will have a pad on top to keep you from sinking too far in and feeling claustrophobic. These are a great alternative to memory foam mattresses because they will provide more support and are not as temperature sensitive.
