Memory foam mattresses

A mattress with memory foam (or viscoelastic foam, sensus) always has a supportive core in pocket springs, latex, bultex, ... Memory foam is a type of foam that takes the shape of the body (don't worry, when you get up, the shape of your body slowly disappears from the mattress). This provides better body support, but it's not all roses. Below are the pros and cons listed for you.

Advantages:
  • Good body support. The distribution of pressure points is optimal. The pressure reduction allows for deeper sleep but is also good for circulation.
  • You do not sink too deeply into the mattress.
  • Memory foam is possible on different types of cores (such as pocket springs, latex, ...). So this allows you to put this type of mattress on both slatted bases and box springs.
  • It is possible to have memory foam mattresses with special pocket springs, which makes the support even better.
Disadvantages:
  • You sink into the mattress. Some people find this comfortable, others do not. Choosing the right mattress is very subjective. There is no such thing as the perfect mattress for everyone.
  • Memory foam does not breathe well due to the density of the foam. This can cause it to heat up quickly.
  • Memory foam is slightly more sensitive to temperature. In winter, the mattress may be slightly harder when you go to sleep. It is not recommended to combine this type of mattress with an electric blanket because then the top layer of the mattress will be too soft when you go to sleep. Not only does this provide less support, but this also does not benefit the longevity of the mattress.
  • There is less ease of movement because you sink a little deeper into the mattress. If you want to turn around or stand up straight, this can be a little more difficult.
  • Memory foam mattresses are on the more expensive side. There are no cheap solutions to have the same effect.
  • The effect of memory foam disappears when using a topper. So this is not a solution.
