What thickness of memory foam do i need?

When purchasing a memory foam mattress one of the biggest problems is deciding what is the best thickness of memory foam. Their is no need to purchase a memory mattress with too much memory foam as this will cost more, and will provide no more support or comfort. If it is for a child then 5cm of memory foam is ideal, if you are under 13 stones then 7cm will be ideal, if you are over 15 stones then you will probably need 10cm of memory foam. Some retailers only sell a memory foam mattress with 2.5cm of memory foam and this is not really ideal unless you are a young child.

Do memory foam mattresses get hot

There is a lot of speculation that a memory foam mattress will get hot while sleeping on one. This can be true is some instances if the memory foam is made from closed celled memory foam, usually these are made in the far east using cheap memory foam. Most quality memory foam mattresses are made using open celled memory foam, that allow good circulation of air. Also a good quality memory foam will have air flow channels which will help to allow air to have excellent airflow all around. Also a coolmax or outlast cover will also aid in keeping you cooler in summer. Overall a good quality memory foam mattress will be made with the above following features and will not be any warmer than a normal conventional made mattress, if anything they should feel cooler.
