Let’s take a look at the differences between memory foam and spring, their pros and cons, and what to consider before you buy. Memory foam mattresses are designed to contour to your body’s shape for support and pressure relief.
Memory foam mattresses are quite popular, with many reputable companies providing them as an option. The coils may all be connected together or individually encased (“pocketed”) to better control motion transfer.
Memory foam is famous for contouring to hug your body. Memory foam absorbs movement, which may be useful if you share your bed with a partner or pets.
But their rise in popularity also means there are lots of subpar versions too. While a memory foam mattress may sound trendy, be sure to do your research to see if it fits your needs.
Memory foam can emit chemicals, which have a distinct odor. Coils are designed to support your weight, so there’s no sinking feeling.
If you dislike feeling stuck, a spring mattress will give you more bounce. More bounce means you’re more likely to feel your partner move around if they toss and turn at night.
Most mattresses come in twin, full, queen, and king sizes. Some brands will let you add extra layers built into the mattress.
Some materials, like gel foam, or features, like extra air chambers, will allow for better cooling. Your choice of firmness largely comes down to preference and sleep style.
If you’re buying a spring mattress, the International Chiropractors Association recommends at least 375 coils for a queen. Look at sites like the Better Business Bureau, Trustpilot, and Yelp to get a sense of how buyers feel about the company and product.
Some companies won’t show anything but positive reviews on their site, so it can be helpful to look at a broader range. Some companies will deliver and set your mattress up, while others will send it rolled up in a box.
Some companies have lengthy trial services and warranties that guarantee you’re well taken care of, while others don’t. Opt for memory foam if you want something soft that cradles you, or if low motion transfer is important to you.
