5 benefits of a memory foam mattress

16 July 2020

Looking for an anti-allergy mattress that supports the unique contours of your body? Memory foam may be just what you need...

1. Bespoke comfort

Memory foam mattresses mould to the shape of your body as you sleep. You may find them cooler and harder than traditional mattresses when you first go to bed, but they soon provide a unique fit by reacting to your weight and body heat. We have you covered with our our Jersey fitted sheets, which are constructed from a 100% Cotton Knit which 'moves' with the contours of your body and the mattress. Specifically manufactured for memory foam beds the sheet will retain its shape after being stretched.

And if you want to experience the feel of memory foam without investing in a whole new mattress, you can opt for a memory foam mattress topper. While it won’t offer the same level of support, it’ll definitely make your mattress feel more comfortable.

2. Pain relief

Sleeping with an injury (if you’ll forgive the pun) is often a pain. Our aching limbs and bad backs have to endure more pressure than necessary on conventional mattresses, as they’re not designed to provide a true body fit. However, memory foam mattresses can displace pressure from sore points, thanks to their smart, temperature-sensitive material. Areas of pain have a warmer temperature than other body parts, so the adaptive material is able to target these areas and reduce pressure with pinpoint accuracy.

3. Anti-allergy

A typical mattress is home to up to 10 million dust mites. These bugs’ favourite breeding grounds are in the humid cavities around mattress springs. Fortunately, memory foam mattresses are made from dense materials that prevent the mites from burrowing into your bedding and reproducing. By inhibiting the spread of allergy-inducing mites, memory foam mattresses significantly reduce the chances of waking up covered in nasty bites and allergic reactions.

4. Motion transfer resistance

If you share a bed with someone who tends to toss and turn through the night, you’ll benefit greatly from motion transfer resistance. The material in memory foam mattresses absorbs kinetic energy to stop you feeling your partner’s twitching and rolling. It can also stop you feeling like you’re sinking towards your partner. You can expect a better night’s sleep even on those nights where your partner is feeling a little more restless.

5. Anti-sag and anti-sinking

The Sleep Council recommends we change our mattress every seven years, or after 20,000 hours of use. This is because many spring mattresses start to sag and sink before this time. Also, our bodies change over time and spring mattresses cannot adjust to offer the same comfort over their lifetime. Memory foam mattresses on the other hand are designed to return to their original shape after every use, so they last much longer and can support your body no matter how much it changes over the years.
