Let’s begin!

Memory Foam Mattress

First created in 1960s by NASA, memory foam is a dear nickname for VISCO Elastic Foam. The advent of time witnessed an increase in fondness for memory foam mattresses. This is mainly because it’s scientific composition helps in providing overall back support and comfort relief. A Memory Foam Mattress intelligently moulds and pick your natural shape of the body and retains its original form when pressure is released. No partner disturbance, instant reponsiveness and pressure point relief of a memory foam layer is a personal favourite of side sleepers. With the recent advancements, a memory foam layer is infused with various other elements as an added bonus, the nascent experimentation being Cool Gel Memory Foam. Infused with millions of cooling crystals that keep you all night long, the crystals add to the density of memory foam thus making it more durable as well.

Latex Mattress

Well-Known for Being Comfortable, Latex mattresses are amongst the most popular types of mattresses because of their durability and comfort. Latex conforms to your body more gently than a memory foam mattress, and bounces back quickly. Latex mattresses are ideal for sleepers who move a lot at night. Unlike memory foam, latex mattresses don’t take long to adapt to the body’s shape after it moves.

Harvested from the rubber tree, the organic latex layer makes the mattress environmental friendly.  Thus it seeps out allergies and provides a health and a hygienic atmosphere to live in. With no motion transfer feature, you can sleep undisturbed even while your partner is changing his position in bed. Opting for a latex mattress means perfect spinal support and a healthy commitment to the environment.

High Resilience (HR) Foam Mattress

High Resiliency (HR) foam is the highest grade of polyurethane foam. The foam contours to the body exceptionally well and its cell structure enables extreme elasticity and optimal supporting force. With regular use, high-resiliency foams should last for at least ten years, meaning mattresses containing these foams typically carry a strong warranty.

Coir Mattress

Coir is a natural fiber that is procured from the coconut husk. Originated in India, coir is often used for padding mattresses. With a lot of health benefits, coir can easily absorb moisture from the air while its hygroscopic quality makes you sleep more comfortably. A natural calmer, coir mattresses provide good air ventilation as well making it a completely healthy sleep choice. Paired with rebonded foam, a coir mattress is said to be the best fit for all sleepers. Rubberized coir mattresses form an excellent orthopaedic mattress as well as they are specifically designed to support your back and body.

Spring Mattress

The main constituent of a Spring mattress is, guess what, springs! How one spring mattress differs from another depends on how the coil is layered, and what type of material has been added, which is also known as the comfort layer. The different shapes of coils in Spring mattresses can be: Bonnell Coil, Bonnell/Open, Offset, Continuous, Pocket, Marshall Coil, etc.

Bonnell spring mattress: Bonnell coils are the oldest and most common. First adapted from buggy seat springs of the 19th century, they are still prevalent in mid-priced mattresses. Bonnell springs are knotted, round-top, hourglass-shaped steel wire coil. When laced together with cross wire helicals, these coils form the simplest innerspring unit, also referred to as a Bonnell unit.

Pocket spring mattress: Pocket springs are also known, as wrapped or encased coils. They are thin-gauge, barrel-shaped, knotless coils individually encased in fabric pockets—normally a man made, non-woven fibre.

With that, we come to the end of this keepsake. Now of course as mentioned earlier, comfort is subjective and depends on an individual’s personal preferences. Some people like the sensation of being cocooned in bed; others prefer to lie on top of it. Back sleepers may like a firmer feel than side sleepers. There are lots of different comfort types you can choose from. However, correct support depends on your weight, height, build and even preferred sleeping position. Ideally, a mattress should mould to your body’s shape while remaining supportive.

With all these points in mind, don’t forget to set aside enough time to pick the right type of mattress. Don’t shop when you’re tired or rushed and research about the mattress before digging in.
