There is a certain buzz about memory foam mattresses in the market at the moment. Facts like, they are great to sleep in, adjust against your body, rid you from back and neck pains etc., are being thrown around everywhere. But what are the most important differences between a memory foam mattress and spring mattress, and what makes for the best memory foam mattress? Let’s find out.
Comfort is obviously what drives mattress sales. Truth be told, memory foam mattresses provide comfort that cannot be matched by spring mattresses at all, mostly because it is very difficult to get varying degrees of firmness with spring. Foam mattresses on the other hand act like a million small springs supporting the body while sleeping. It lets the body sink in, supports the critical pressure points and cradles the body from around.
There are some people who do not like that cradled feeling but it usually takes some time to get used to memory foam before you can truly understand the benefits.
The therapeutic benefits that memory foam mattresses bring to the table are non-existent in spring mattresses. We have already talked about the full body support. This ensures that all those morning after neck and back pains are completely gone. Spring mattresses are often quite hard and put unnecessary stress on the body. Just changing from a spring to memory foam mattress may be good enough to take care of these problems.
There are more reasons we could mention, but these are the main two reasons memory foam mattresses are considered better than traditional spring mattresses. On average they may be a bit more expensive than spring mattresses, but they will let you sleep like a baby and rejuvenate for the tough days ahead.
