6 Benefits of Memory Foam Mattresses

6 Benefits of Memory Foam Mattresses

Good sleep quality is crucial to your well-being. If you've been struggling to sleep well, your mattress may be to blame. An uncomfortable mattress can significantly compromise your sleep and leave you waking up exhausted. 

To enhance your sleep quality and wake up feeling refreshed, consider getting a memory foam mattress.

It's Suitable for All Sleeping Positions 

Not everyone sleeps the same way. There are back sleepers, stomach sleepers, side sleepers, and people who sleep in various positions. Not every mattress is made for every position, but memory foam is ideal for every sleeping position. One of our most popular memory foam mattresses is the 8” Gel Memory Foam Mattress, and it ships FREE to you!

Memory foam will ensure your spine stays aligned while you sleep if you're a back sleeper. Meanwhile, if you're a side sleeper, it will support your waist, allowing you to enjoy a good night's sleep. 

It's Allergy-Friendly 

Standard mattresses can worsen your allergies because they are prone to collecting allergens such as dust mites, mold, mildew, and more. Memory foam mattresses are more resistant because they are made from polyurethane foam. Polyurethane foam consists of a dense network of fibers that prevent allergens from accumulating, so if you suffer from allergies or respiratory problems, a memory foam mattress from Mattress Firm is right for you. 

It Can Reduce Back and Neck Pain 

If you wake up with a stiff neck or an aching back, your mattress may be the problem. A memory foam mattress can displace pressure from pain points (like your neck) to relieve any discomfort. Pain points also typically have a slightly higher temperature than the rest of the body, and memory foam can detect temperature changes and mold itself to these pain points to provide comfort, giving you a better night’s sleep. 

It Offers Temperature-Controlled Support 

Your body temperature can also affect your sleep quality, so if it's extremely cold or hot, you're unlikely to sleep well. Memory foam mattresses can help you sleep cool during hot summer nights and sleep warm during frigid winter ones. They are made using a temperature-sensitive material, which adjusts depending on your body temperature, making them great for use all year round. 

Our 13” Hybrid Gel Memory Foam Mattress is perfect for maximum cooling to allow your body to transition into a better night's sleep. This mattress promotes coolness, breathability & comfortable sleep.

It Offers Motion Transfer Resistance 

Can't get a good night's sleep because your partner tosses and turns all night? A memory foam mattress could save your sleep! Unlike standard mattresses, memory foam mattresses can minimize motion transfer, meaning if your partner moves a lot while they sleep, you won't feel their movements, allowing you to get a good night's sleep. 

It's Durable 

Did you visit a mattress store, buy a mattress, and it became worn out sooner than you expected? If yes, it's likely the mattress material probably wasn't good. Don't head to just any mattress store and make the same mistake again. Instead, visit your local Mattress Firm and purchase a memory foam mattress made with high-quality, long-lasting materials.

Memory foam mattresses have a better lifespan than other mattress types, lasting up to 10 years or more! Purchasing a memory foam mattress will not only help you sleep better but save you money in the long run by not replacing your mattress as often.

Overall, memory foam mattresses are an excellent alternative to standard mattresses. They're ideal for several sleeping positions, they're allergy-friendly and they’re long-lasting. What's more, they adjust based on the temperature, and they can provide pain relief, giving you a great night’s sleep. 

If you're tired of poor-quality sleep, stop by one of our local Mattress Firm locations and one of our experts will help you identify the perfect memory foam mattress for your needs.
