When buying a memory foam mattress make sure you check that the brand has worked to negate the problems associated with traditional memory foam mattresses. The most important features to look for are cooling technology used to overcome heat issues and checks in place to ensure memory foam health risks are not caused. The other factor to consider is the mattress price. A good memory foam mattress must not necessarily be costly. Let us look at these factors in more detail in the next segment. 


Traditional memory foam mattress and its problems 

What are the problems with a traditional memory foam mattress, let us find out in today’s post. 

Memory foam mattresses are loved by customers all over the world. As soon as you talk to a sleeper about their memory foam mattress, they will tell you everything that is great about the mattress. First, they will talk about the mattress’ ability to offer body contouring. The mattress adapts to the body shape of the sleeper so well that whether they are a side sleeper, a front sleeper or a back sleeper, the mattress will give you that snuggled up the feeling of comfort regardless. The mattress also effortlessly distributes the bodyweight of the sleeper uniformly throughout so that the sleeper does not feel any pain in their neck, shoulders and hips. The mattress by adapting to the body shape and distributing the bodyweight of the sleeper ensures that the sleeper’s spine is not bent in any uncomfortable and unnatural way during sleep. 


While these factors made traditional memory foam mattresses the best in the market, there were some areas where this bedding material could definitely improve. Three of these areas were heat issues, mattress price and health risks associated with the material. Traditional memory foam mattress would absorb the body heat of the sleeper and trap it within its layers making the sleeping experience terrible for the sleeper. The mattresses were also priced higher compared to the other mattresses, especially spring, because of which people were discouraged from buying the mattress


Over the years the new brands and mattresses have incorporated various technologies to make memory foam mattress the best mattress in the world. Let us have a look at how brands have been doing that. 


New memory foam mattress and its advantages 

New memory foam mattress brands have overcome all the three problems associated with traditional memory foam mattress effectively. The brands make sure that at least one or the other cooling technology is incorporated into their design to ensure the mattress does not trap heat. These cooling technologies include cooling crystals, gel memory foam, memory foam layer with open-cell structure etc. These mattresses absorb the body heat of the sleeper, but instead of trapping it, circulate it throughout. So the sleeper sleeps comfortably without feeling claustrophobic or stuck. 

The new brands of memory foam mattresses also ensure that their products are hypoallergenic. This means that the mattress will prevent dust from settling on the surface or trickling into the layers of the mattress. This is particularly important for people with sensitive skin or those with breathing problems. However, it applies to all of us today because of the pollution we are battling in the air. It is necessary that our sleep haven is devoid of pollutants, and a memory foam mattress helps achieve that. 

The brands also ensure that the sleepers do not have to pay exorbitant prices to experience the goodness of a memory foam mattress. They are doing so by going online. These online brands offer the sleeper high-quality bedding materials like the ones available in the market but at way cheaper rates. This is why people today like shopping online for mattresses instead of going to the showrooms, not only because of the pricing but also because of the convenience in shopping from home.
