Memory Foam Mattress Buyers’ Guide – Four Things To Remember When Shopping

You’ve finally decided to go for it. You’re going to buy a memory foam mattress. As long as you buy a good quality memory foam mattress, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Here are four things to remember when shopping for your memory foam mattress.

1. Density. The more dense the memory foam mattress is, the more support you will get. You should get at least a five pound memory foam mattress. Without this density, you won’t really get the support you need. The more support you have, the more pressure points the mattress will relieve. Remember, this mattress set is an investment. Don’t scrimp on the things that really matter. Make sure you get a high density memory foam mattress.

2. Firmness. Firmness can be a little more tricky to determine. It is measured by finding out how much pressure is required to make a one inch indentation in the mattress. Firmness in regards to memory foam doesn’t mean the foam won’t mold to your body. It simply means that you won’t sink into the memory foam clear to the mattress core. The mattress core should provide the support you need, not the memory foam layer. But, the memory foam layer should be firm enough to keep you well above touching the mattress core.

3. Thickness. The thickness of your memory foam mattress correlates to the firmness and density. The memory foam layer shouldn’t be so thin that as soon as you lie on it, you sink right to the mattress core. If you sink into the core, you’ll lose the important benefits of memory foam.

4. Compression. This factor may take a little longer to find out. You don’t want a memory foam mattress that has been compressed and sitting in a warehouse for months on end. The longer memory foam is compressed, the quicker it will lose the ability to conform to your body. Make sure that your mattress comes to you fresh. The newer the memory foam, the longer your mattress will last.

Don’t let shopping for a memory foam mattress be completely daunting. Shopping for your memory foam mattress should be fun. Remember, you are finally going to get a good night’s sleep. But, you need to keep these four factors in mind to ensure that you get a good quality mattress. Your memory foam mattress should have a high density, be firm enough and thick enough to keep you above the mattress core and shouldn’t be packaged for very long. As long as you check these four things, you can be sure to get a great memory foam mattress.
