The famous memory foam material was originally developed for NASA back in the 1960s to make airplane seats more comfortable. It has since found its way to everyday products ranging from office supplies and footwear to pillows and mattresses.
In fact, if you take a closer look at your office chair, it’s quite possible that it has a memory foam component. Think about your favorite memory foam slippers and imagine enjoying that indescribable comfort every time you go to bed.
So, if you have ever wondered whether buying a memory foam mattress as opposed to a conventional one is worth the investment, here are seven reasons why you should.
#1 A True Body Fit
Perhaps the number one (and most obvious) reason why memory mattresses are the right choice is the fact that the foam material they are made of actively molds to your body. This happens in response to heat and pressure, allowing the surface to distribute your body weight evenly. Imagine sinking into your double twin bed and feeling as if it was molded specifically for your body shape! After you get up, the foam bedding goes back to its original shape without leaving any signs and dents which often happens with conventional mattresses.
#2 Temperature-Control Support
Science has long proven that your body temperature is key in determining the quality of your sleep. Memory foam mattresses are specifically manufactured using temperature-sensitive materials, which allow the bed to adjust to your body weight and heat. The more your body temperature increases, the softer the mattress becomes, so it can provide that good night’s sleep you need.
#3 Pain-Relief Comfort
Perhaps the best reason to get such a mattress for people trying to escape the discomfort of body aches, soreness, and injury recovery, are the wide range of health benefits that memory foam bedding can provide. This happens due to the material’s ability to displace pressure from various points of pain in your body. Since pain points have a slightly higher temperature than the rest of the body, the benefit of memory foam adjusting to varying temperatures is significant.
#4 Allergy Friendly
The typical mattress, after several years of use, will contain anywhere between 100,000 and 10 million dust mites. On the other hand, memory foam mattresses are composed of polyurethane foam made of special fibers that prevent allergy-causing dust mites from gathering within the bed. These mattresses are perfect for your double twin bed if you want to enjoy a restful and uninterrupted sleep without worrying about dust mites in the process. What is more, the dense composition of the memory foam material is the reason many allergens cannot accumulate over time.
#5 Motion Transfer Resistance
Many couples prefer memory foam as it absorbs surface movements and reduces disturbances when a partner moves around in bed. If you or your loved one keep tossing and turning while sleeping, you should certainly consider getting such a mattress. No more waking up whenever your partner twists and turns!
#6 Perfect for Adjustable Beds
Adjustable beds have been getting more and more attention in recent years, and memory foam bedding still remains one of their most compatible options. The foam material flexes with the adjustable base, and it contours its different positions without reducing the durability of the material.
# 7 Support Spine Alignment
It is no secret that the wrong mattress can leave you sore and cause problems with your spine alignment. Memory foam bedding supports every inch of the body evenly by distributing the weight across the entire surface. With other materials, typically found in conventional mattresses, things like springs only concentrate weight on the areas where the body is in contact with the mattress. This causes indentations in the mattress, which then leads to improper sleeping positions and spine problems.
It may be true that we are all different and as such, enjoy different things. However, something we all have in common is our basic need to sleep and rest our minds and bodies. Memory foam mattresses not only provide natural pain support and a molded fit to your body, but they also keep dust mites away and ensure your back is straight.
