Mattress quality is vital and though memory foam has become hugely popular over the last few years it is still possible to buy a poor mattress. But because the manufacturing process has been refined over the years you are now able to buy a quality mattress made of memory foam at competative prices. But there are so many memory foam companies out there so how do you separate the wheat form the chaff?
The unique open cell structure of amazon memory foam dampens shock and absorbs motion which is why it responds with stiffness when you quickly lie down or throw yourself onto the mattress like you would do when you were a kid. This stiffness is the way memory foam reacts at time of impact and does not necessarily indicate a hard mattress.
Increased firmness in a memory foam mattress may also result from the cooler environment it’s kept in. When you first lie down on it, it seems firm but after a few minutes of body contact, it softens and flows around your body without allowing you to sink too far in. The mattress becomes softer at the top but deeper down, where it’s cooler, the mattress is firm and supportive.
Many companies offer ‘memory’ foam products over the internet at ludicrously low prices. Beware of these products. When buying your best memory foam mattress, try and ensure that it is made in Britain or the USA (it’s better for the environment if it’s from Britain). Cheap, low quality memory foam tends to be made in the Far East.
These are cheap because they use low quality materials to make the foam and they use poor quality resin to bind the layers together. In extreme circumstances the chemicals can be dangerous to people’s health.
