Which type is right for you:
The first thing you’ll notice when you start shopping for a mattress, is that they are made of different materials. Here are the three main mattress types you should know:
- Memory Foam Mattresses – are known for their comfort. They contour to a person’s body shape, and provide good pressure relief by distributing body weight evenly.
- Pocket Spring Mattresses – are made of hundreds of individual springs that are housed within their own fabric pockets. Each one moves independently, providing the right amount of support on your body. Pocket spring mattresses, isolate motion transfer between sleeping partners very well.
- Hybrid Mattresses – contain one or more layers of memory foam and a layer of springs. This way you get the best of both worlds: good comfort and pressure relief from the memory foam, and good body support from the springs.
