Test the Mattress

These mattresses are considered the most innovative sleeping surface for their health benefits. If you have made up your mind on a this mattress, you will probably be motivated by its pressure relieving and contouring features. So in order to buy a product that meets your expectations, it’s very important to test the mattress before making the purchase.
However, this can be an issue if you are buying online. What we recommend is that you go to your local bed store and try the mattresses out and see if you like them. If so, which one did you test? because you can usually find them cheaper online. Usually the only thing you need to know is how much layer of memory foam there is in the mattress, what is the overall thickness and what is the density of the mattress. Armed with that information you can usually find a similar mattress, if not the exact same one.

Should go well with your body heat

As these mattresses contour to your pressure points through its temperature sensitive feature, make sure the one you have selected does perform this feature correctly by getting warm according to your body temperature. This is how you can enjoy unmatched comfort from a perfect memory foam mattress. If you are temperature sensitive, you may not find it appropriate to lie down on a surface whose temperature increases with your body heat. As mentioned foam mattresses are available with diverse options, you can easily find one that comes with a Maxicool or Coolmax cover which will eliminate the heat issue.

Right Firmness Level

People usually get confused between density and firmness levels and perceive them as being the same things with different names. Don’t make this mistake. Density is the weight and thickness of a foam mattress while firmness is the softness level of a mattress that is to some extent dependant on its density. Firmness level ranges from soft, medium soft, medium hard to firm. Keep in mind that a firmness level is something quite unique to each person. That’s because you have different health conditions and body posture. I would suggest testing different firmness levels to see what you find perfectly comfortable.

Right Density

You will be given the option to choose the density for your mattress from low, medium and high density. Now it depends on your body structure and weight to see which density level will serve you the best. If you are not overweight, medium level density would definitely satisfy you, providing ideal support to your body. If you don’t have much of an idea about densities, you must read the blog which I wrote about density of these mattresses.Click here to go through it and develop thorough understanding about what does the density of memory foam mattress mean.


Warranty is an important point to consider during memory foam mattress buying process. As mattress is an expensive investment, make sure the company offers at least 5 years warranty on the product. You will also find some companies claiming to offer life time warranty on the product. Well in such a case, please do check the history of the company as I have heard about such companies which offer life time warranty on their products only to disappear from the industry soon after selling their goods.
