Memory foam products seem to be everywhere these days, from pillows to mattresses and even slippers. The biggest reason is that this unique material is able to provide excellent support for the head, body or foot, while still being very comfortable. If you are looking for a new king size bed, you should consider getting a king size memory foam mattress for the best comfort and support. But how do you go about choosing a memory foam mattress since they will probably all feel comfortable when you try them out in the store. Let’s take a look at what goes into making a high quality memory foam mattress.
The two most important features in a king size memory foam mattress are the type of foam used and the density of the mattress. High quality memory foam will have a open cell construction and a higher density of raw material. When weight is applied to foam with open cells, the air moves to adjoining cells, cushioning the body without either pushing back or completely giving in. The higher the density, the more cushion and better support you get. Density is measured by pounds per cubic foot and ranges from about 3 to 6 pounds.
Tempur-Pedic is the company that perfected the visco elastic memory foam mattress and many people buy their products. They do sell some of the most expensive memory foam mattresses, and of course the king size will be the most costly. There are many other reputable companies that compete with Tempur-pedic and claim to have just as good a mattress at a lower cost.
The best way to choose a memory foam mattress would be to compare mattresses by the type of foam, density and price to get the best value for your dollar. Also look at the length of the warranty and make sure they have a trial period for you to test out the mattress without obligation, especially if you have never owned a memory foam mattress before. Make sure you try the mattress for at least a couple weeks since the different feel can take some getting used to. But once the newness wears off, most owners claim they are the best mattresses available just as many believe that memory foam pillows are the best pillowsyou can buy.
