Differences Between Foam Mattresses

19/03/2020 14:49

When it comes to the type of mattress you’re looking to purchase, everyone will have an opinion on whether latex is better than memory foam, or vice versa. The reasons for these varying opinions is that there are differing factors that each material possesses.

In the end, it comes down to which one is best for you!

Let’s have a look at both and compare:


We start with latex because latex is the older material. It was introduced in the 1950s and has stood the test of time. The safety of the material is what makes it so popular among sleepers. Latex mattresses are also eco-friendly and have a very long lifespan. They’re not the most comfortable pillow on the market, but they still do the job.

Memory foam

If you’re looking for comfort, memory foam is for you. It adjusts to the shape of your body, helping your body relax by allowing your contours to fit perfectly. This also helps with blood circulation. You might find that you have to fork out a little more for a memory foam, but it’s totally worth it for a comfortable night sleep.

There are other options on the market of course, such as bonnel, offset and pocket spring systems as well as HD foams and gels. The most important thing to consider is that you sleep for about a third of your life, and while you put much energy into those hours when you are awake, you should not neglect those hours when you’re asleep.

In other words, if you care greatly about having a comfortable car and a comfortable lounge suite, the same sort of energy and consideration should be harnessed when selecting the right mattress for ultimate support and comfort, which will improve your health.
