Choosing the Right Memory Foam Mattress

by | Mar 3, 2017 | Shopping

If you want to buy a memory foam mattress then you will need to decide what type to get. Back when they first came out there was really only one option, but that has been twenty years, and technology evolves. There are many different styles to choose from, and they offer a range of benefits. Here are a few tips for choosing a memory foam mattress. Keep these types in mind if you are looking for a Tempur-Pedic in Jackson, MS.


If you want a mattress that has a bit more firmness then you may want to look into a gel memory foam mattress. These mattresses are infused with the same gel that is used in shoe insoles and they offer more support than regular memory foam. If, on the other hand, you want something that is much softer than a traditional memory foam mattress may be the way to go since they can get much softer.


If you need a mattress that will offer more support then you may want to consider a hybrid mattress. These have a coil core similar to a traditional innerspring mattress, but then it has layers of memory foam on top of the core. This allows these mattresses to be almost as soft as a solid memory foam mattress while at the same time offering more support like an innerspring mattress.

The other option that you have if you want more support is a gel mattress. While the gel does add some firmness to the mattress, its main purpose is to add support. This added support was designed for people with back and joint pain who need the extra support when they are asleep to keep from hurting.


If you tend to sweat at night or if you live in a hot and humid area then you may need to get a mattress that will help keep you cool. There are a few ways to do this, but two of the best memory foam types are air-cooled and plant based. Both of these allow air to flow through them and let heat dissipate.
