What is the difference in the feel of sleeping on memory foam vs. latex

Memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses are becoming extremely popular because of their many benefits. Memory foam has been used in the medical industry for decades. Latex foam has been around since 1929, but has recently gained a lot of momentum.

Customers are pleased with memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses more than traditional innerspring, air, or water mattresses. Although these mattresses are similar, there are also several differences.

Latex foam mattresses are more resilient and have a higher elasticity than memory foam mattresses. Simply put, latex mattresses have a more ‘springy’ feeling to them, while memory foam mattresses are more solid-feeling. Latex foam mattresses have a higher responsiveness to them. It takes longer to change positions on a memory foam mattress because memory foam isn’t as responsive as latex foam.

Latex mattresses are also manufactured naturally because latex is found in nature from the rubber tree. Memory foam is a chemically-produced substance. Latex mattresses are made from natural rubber trees while memory foam is created in a lab out of polyurethane. Because latex mattresses are organic, they are also naturally hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and dust-mite resistant.

Both latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses reduce pressure points significantly. Neither of these mattresses uses annoying springs or coils that can end up poking you throughout the night. Latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses distribute your body weight evenly. The distribution of body weight is the main factor for reducing pressure points.

The main difference between latex foam mattresses and memory foam mattresses is that latex foam mattresses allow you to change positions and get comfortable faster than memory foam mattresses do. It doesn’t take long to get comfortable on a memory foam mattress, but a latex mattress lets you find comfort a little bit faster. Memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses are both extremely comfortable and have many great benefits.
