Questions and answers related to memory foam mattresses



Question: "Doesn't it feel like I'm rolling out of a pit when I'm rotating on a mattress because it took my shape before?"


It can happen in a place with a cooler climate, or in a bedroom that has been left cold for days. The memory foam becomes harder when exposed to cold and responds slower than in a warm place.

The material itself softens the body. Many believe that the softness of memory foam is related to the density of the material. This is not true. It depends on the temperature at which the foam was produced, and this temperature can also affect whether that memory foam is slower to react or faster. As many manufacturers, there are so many types of memory foam on the market.

When you lie on a cold memory foam mattress, you put deep pressure on it with your body and shape it. Yet, if you lie on the mattress for a while, your body heats up the heat-sensitive material, the effect extending all the way to the edges, eliminating or greatly reducing the feeling of being in a pit. Although it is not a very good idea to use an electric sheet on a memory foam mattress, but you can use it at very low temperatures if you have been in cold weather for a long time.



Question: "Which is the best memory mattress?"



First of all, it would be impossible to tell, since everyone prefers a different one. Buying a mattress is a very subjective thing.


An important factor is whether you are sleeping on your back, side or rather on your stomach.


If you are lying on your back, a harder mattress may be more ideal than those who sleep on your stomach or side.

If too hard, lying on the side will undoubtedly lead to an uncomfortable feeling in the shoulders and hips, where the weight is concentrated. If you sleep on your back almost any mattress may suit you. It is important that the mattress has a high layer of memory foam that fills the curvature of the spine, thereby relieving it.

If you sleep on your stomach or alternate poses, you need to consider aspects such as pressure points on your abdomen and chest and how these affect your comfort. A layer of memory that is too high is not recommended for those who sleep on their stomachs, as the body becomes very submerged, which can cause discomfort. By this we mean that a 4-5-6 cm high memory layer may still be ideal, but we no longer recommend it above!


After that the important things are how much you weigh, how tall are you and according to these there are various possible answers.

Let me answer a few questions and then tell you which memory foam mattress I recommend according to the different categories.

If you are less than 180 cm tall and heavier than 100 kg, you will need a mattress with more than 4 cm of Memory Foam.

This is mainly because if a person of this weight rotates, he or she will lift his or her weight on his or her knee or elbow and “snag” on the hard foam beneath the memory layer, which can easily wake him up. On the other hand, if you are under 90 kg, you would surely be satisfied with a top layer only 4 cm thick. Depending on what is more favorable for you, a harder or softer mattress, I can make an offer to choose the best mattress.

There are other factors, such as which country the memory foam is made in and what its density is, as these are all essential in choosing the best one.

If you are simply looking for the coolest and best quality mattress on the market, I would recommend our mattresses with 6 or 8 cm thick memory from our Memory Program TM, as here you can choose the thickness of the cold foam and memory foam layer, or even how quickly the memory foam responds. Slow foam makes it feel harder, while fast foam makes it feel softer. Therefore, the harder foam is called “HARD” and the faster foam is called “SOFT” foam.


Question: "What are the main differences in the quality of memory foams?"

Many factors determine quality, but the most important is foam density. The density of the foam is directly proportional to the support it provides. In general, the denser the memory, the better the quality. Density is measured in the weight of a cube approximately 33 cm (33x33x33).

Good support for the human body is now available with a minimum density of 50-60 kg / m3.

Lighter materials contain more air, so they are cheaper but do not support the body properly and are not as durable.


Question: "Does it really feel like you want to fall off the edge of the bed when you fall asleep there or sit on the bed?"


It’s like slipping towards the edge when you sleep on the edge or when you sit there in the morning and pick up your socks. Yet it doesn’t feel like sleeping on the edge of a normal mattress.

I sleep on the edge of my mattress and it has never been a problem.

Some memory foam mattresses already include a “side sink prevention system” to sleep comfortably and peacefully there as well.


Question: "Can I use a mattress protector for these mattresses?"


The use of a thick mattress protector is not recommended, it is only thin, which transmits heat because the mattress adapts / reacts to the heat and pressure of the body, and placing anything between the mattress and the body can prevent heat from flowing, although this its most important function. There is a waterproof mattress protector that has been specially developed for memory foam mattresses and thus allows the mattress to absorb the heat of the body. A thinner mattress protector is definitely useful for fixed mattresses or L-shaped zipped mattresses. In many cases, larger mattress covers do not fit in the drum of our washing machine, so cleaning is only possible in a cleaner.


Question: “You can get a memory foam mattress in so many different thicknesses. How do you know which is best? "


The thickness of the mattress itself must meet personal needs. Some prefer the 20-22 cm thick ones, but others are satisfied with a 16 cm mattress height as well.

16 cm is probably the minimum thickness that can be met in the long run because there are other layers below the memory layer that support it.

The only thing that determines the quality of the support is the density and height of the memory foams. I recommend a memory layer at least 4 cm thick. Always ask about the height of the memory foam, because the fact that a mattress is thick does not mean that the memory is thick. Unfortunately, the 2 cm high memory layer is just a marketing trick, as this height is not able to provide the benefits that a memory layer can provide. It is important that if you choose a memory foam mattress, it has at least a 4 cm memory layer.
