Memory foam mattresses have fast become the go-to choice of bed for people across the world. But why are they so much better than traditional spring mattresses? We outline the major differences below:
Here are 8 Main Differences Between Spring and Memory Foam Mattresses.
1. Pressure Relief
Traditional spring mattresses concentrate your weight and pressure on your hips and shoulders, which can lead to aches and pains in the future. It promotes bad posture in bed.
Memory foam accommodates your curves, moulding to your contours and spreading your weight evenly. That means no pressure points, and a weightless feeling.
2. Motion Absorption
On a traditional spring mattress, you’ll be able to feel the movements of your partner. The interlinked springs pass the motion across the mattress.
Memory foam absorbs motion and so you’ll sleep free of disturbances from your partner’s movement. Plus, the pressure relieving qualities of memory foam reduce tossing and turning by up to 80%, so you partner won’t be wriggling as much anyway.
Traditional spring mattresses are not adaptive. They expect our bodies to adapt to them, and push against us when we lie down.
Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material which reacts to your body heat and moulds to your shape, cradling your curves and putting your comfort first.
Traditional spring mattresses are prone to sagging and dipping after a few years.
Memory foam is more durable and long lasting – a quality memory foam mattress can last you up to 15 years!
5. Full Body Support
Traditional spring mattresses leave your lower back unsupported. You’ll be able to feel a gap between your lower back and the mattress when you’re lying down.
Memory foam offers full body support, including your lower back. The memory foam moulds to your contours, providing optimal support from head to toe.
Traditional spring mattresses have to be flipped and rotated often.
Memory foam requires little to no maintenance at all!
Traditional spring mattresses often become noisy after a while, with the coils squeaking and creaking every time you move. No one likes to be woken up by squeaking coils now, do they.
Memory foam doesn’t ever get vocal. This soothing material will continue to quietly support and comfort you for years to come. Totally squeak-free.
8. Bed Bugs
Traditional spring mattresses are the perfect breeding ground for dust mites and bed bugs.
Memory foam is hypoallergenic and inhibits the growth of these bugs, due to its dense foam interior.
