Most of us are not careful enough when purchasing mattresses. A good quality mattress needs to provide you with the correct support and comfort levels to ensure a good nights sleep and to help reduce the likelihood of back problems.
The most popular type of mattress in the uk is the spring mattress. Although we may find these mattresses comfortable, they are often not the best mattresses to sleep on as they can sag in the middle over time, due to body weight. On some mattresses you begin to feel the springs as the mattress ages. The reason being spring mattresses are made with springs filled with filling. On top of the filled springs are one or two material layers. But as the mattress gets older, these layers of material begin to wear down, the springs begin to push outwards more, and the mattress is not as comfortable as it once was.
A well made foam mattress supports your body and helps to keep your spine straight, which promotes a restful night's sleep. The thicker the layer of foam on the foam mattress , the firmer the mattress, so if you or your partner are of heavy build, make sure you choose a thick enough memory foam layer to support you.
The best type of foam mattress is one which uses large foam that moulds to the shape of your body by reacting to body temperature which makes the mattress softer with the heat, and moulds to the contours of your body. It distributes the weight of your body evenly which in turn greatly reduces pressure on vital points of the back, hips and shoulders which results in a enjoyable and undisturbed sleep. The foam mattress also allows for better circulation whilst providing support. This can lead to less tossing and turning.
All in all a foam mattress can provide you with a better nights sleep and put less strain on your back.
