Visco Elastic/Memory Foam Mattresses: Originally developed by NASA to make the pressure of space shuttle lift-offs more bearable the foam has seen drastic reductions in price in recent years and is now a popular mattress material. The material gets its name from its ability to conform to the shape of an object and retain that shape for a period of time. While visco-elastic beds are typically more expensive than their coil counterparts the quality can vary widely and is one of the main contributors to its price. Good quality memory foam means a firm bed that will evenly distribute your weight regardless of how you sleep. Some memory foams also respond to heat by becoming even more soft. Memory foam has lifespans between 10 and 20 years depending on quality. For those who have never owned a visco-elastic foam bed before there is typically a period of getting used to the "weightless" feeling the bed induces. New memory foam mattress owners may also notice a strong odor. While the odor does fade with time it can continue to cause irritation so be on the lookout for complaints from those sleeping on the bed. Also memory foam by nature retains heat which some users find uncomfortable.

Do you ever wake-up feeling more tired than when you went to bed? Or do you feel pain in your lower back or other parts of your body? Do you wake up in the night feeling hot and sweaty? Are you or your partner tossing and turning in the night keeping each other awake? All these sleeping problems are common and while sometimes caused by a serious sleeping disorder most of the time it is simply a case of an unsuitable mattress. This is largely caused by people purchasing cheap mattresses the wrong type of mattress for their needs or never changing their mattress. Sometimes you might not even be aware of the fact that the mattress you are using is not suitable for you. An example of this is that many people experience back problems but purchase a soft or medium feel mattress while they can drastically reduce pain by a good pressure relief and firm mattress. Mattresses are personal and for each problem there is a specific mattress with a solution.
The new wave of latex mattress that is sweeping the bedding market is the mattress that comes to the consumer in pieces and must be assembled once it is received. This mattress is truly a wonderful product and is often misunderstood. After it is assembled it resembles and sleeps like a traditional latex mattress. The benefits of this type of latex mattress are numerous. The shipping of the "break-down" mattress is very economical and affordable to a larger number of consumers. Traditional mattresses can be very costly to ship especially if they have to travel a long distance to get to the consumer. Lower shipping costs allow for a comfort exchange policy that affords the consumer the option to ship back a layer single layer of the mattress to achieve a different comfort level. If a consumer purchases the wrong comfort level of mattress they simply exchange one of the layers of the mattress. This makes for a very convenient transaction as the consumer usually sends back the layer they wish to exchange only after the new one is received from the company. This makes for no "down time" without a mattress. Buying a new mattress is a complicated nerve-racking endeavor that is rarely perfected in one try. Even when purchasing a mattress from a brick and mortar store you lie on the mattress for 15 minutes to determine if the new mattress will be comfortable for the next sevaral years. Then you get the mattress home and its not exactly what you wanted but you live with it because its such a hassle returning it. With this new type of mattress if you dont perfect it the first time you simply request a comfort exchange. By the time you decide you will do a comfort exchange you know exactly what the problem is. If the mattress is too firm you send back a firmer layer for a softer one. If the mattress is too soft you send back a soft layer for a firmer one. And the best part of all you dont have to decide the perfect combination in 15 minutes in a store. You sleep on the mattress at home and have usually up to 90 days depending on manufacturer to determine what it is you need to make the mattress perfect.
One thing to consider with this type of mattress is whether or not the individual layers inside are covered. This sounds like a trivial thing and something that is perhaps not necessary. In fact some companies (those that do not offer covered latex layers) may try to talk you out of purchasing a bed with no covered layers. However covered layers are VERY IMPORTANT to the functionality and durability of the mattress. Covering the layers makes them more durable and easier to handle when assembling the bed or rearranging the layers to achieve a different comfort level. Latex by its inherent nature is susceptible to ripping and tearing if it is handled too rough or is tugged too hard. Some manufacturers and retailers claim that covering the layers will change the comfort levels of the latex by covering them. However this is not true as the layers are covered in organic cotton that has stretch to it. The stretch in the fabric allows for the latex to keep its original level of comfort and affords the protection of the latex that is of major importance for this type of mattress. Many manufacturers will also claim that covering the latex allows the latex layers to slide inside the mattress. However this also is not true. The organic cotton used to cover the latex prevents the layers from moving inside the mattress. Also preventing the layers from moving inside the mattress is the cover. The layers fit snug inside the cover thus not allowing the layers to move around. Covering the layers is an added expense that most manufacturers forego. These manufacturers try to explain away the reasons for not covering the individual latex layers but the bottom line is their main reason for not covering the layers. Latex that is damaged while trying to assemble the mattress or while removing the latex for a comfort exchange will in most cases not be exchanged and voids the warranty. It cannot be stressed enough; if you purchase a mattress that has individual layers that are accessible be sure those layers are covered.
