Are you fed up with lying awake at night with back, neck or leg pain?
Is your restless sleep partner driving you to the couch or easy chair in search of the sleep you so desperately need?
Then I've got good news for you!
Before you actually begin searching for a brand of mattress, you need to know some basic things about memory foam first.
To start, remember that the density of the foam is the most critical factor of a foam mattress review.
You need to be sure your mattress is of at least 5 lb. density so it will give your body the proper support you need.
Next, the foams of lesser density will not last as long so your investment will be short lived.
You also want to make sure that you have some kind of sleep test period where you will pay only a token amount if you decide the mattress isn't comfortable.
A 30-day sleep test is sufficient for you to know if you're gonna like the mattress.
If you're a side or stomach sleeper, you'll want to have at least 3 1/2" of memory foam on top of the base foam. A back sleeper, on the other hand, can get by with 3" of memory foam.
Now if you weigh over 200 lbs., you should have at least 4 inches of memory foam. And if you're over 220, you'd be better served with 5 inches of memory foam or more.
Since we can't go over every possible scenario, this will, at least, give you some basic information to shop with.
Also, there are now literally hundreds of memory foam mattress companies that have sprung up over the past few years and it's impossible to review all of them.
The Tempur-Pedic(R) mattresses are great and you can't go wrong if you select the right one for your situation. However, many people tell me that they just can't justify the high price.
The other company that I've recommended over the years is Comfor-Pedic(R) by Simmons(R), but now Simmons is involved in some bankruptcy proceedings.
Both of these companies manufacture top quality mattress of over 5 lb. density so you know it's a quality memory foam.
For 5 years, I've written articles and created websites about how to select a quality memory foam mattress. Now I've finally found a company that manufactures a mattress of equal quality as Tempur-Pedic(R) or Comfor-Pedic(R), but at a very reasonable price.
