Check out these facts to help you decide if you should buy a memory foam mattress.

Memory foam mattresses come with many benefits, including additional support, less back pain, and cooling technology for a comfortable night sleep. If you’re in the market for a new mattress and want to know more about memory foam, continue reading for a few facts!


Memory foam mattresses should have a density of at least 3-5 lbs, as your body heat softens and molds the mattress to your perfect shape. Lower density mattresses may feel softer at first, but they will not remain that soft and supportive for a long time. A perfect mattress has about 10-12 inches of premium memory foam and a high-density foam base. This combination allows for and comfortable yet supportive sleep, which is what everyone needs!


Some mattress companies add gel to their foam composite to create gel memory foam. The purpose behind this is that gel is cooler, and for those who are always hot and uncomfortable during the night, the gel helps to cool down their body temperature. Because of this additional feature, gel-infused mattresses are typically more expensive than other memory foam mattresses. If you’re not ready to commit to the gel mattress but are still hot while sleeping, try switching your sheets, blankets, and pajamas to breathable fabrics like pure cotton.


In addition to gel, some memory foam mattresses have a latex layer for added comfort. Latex helps with bouncing and can be more comfortable for those who toss and turn during the night, but many mattresses do not use natural latex. Synthetic latex is a common allergen and may be sensitive to the material, so it’s important to research before purchasing. However, people are also allergic to natural latex, in which case a latex mattress may not be the best choice for you.
