Innerspring mattresses are the most traditional type of mattress. They are composed of a layer of springs covered with layers of various “comfort” materials. The innerspring is the source of support and provides proper spinal alignment while you sleep.
Sitting above the innerspring are the comfort layers that cushion your body throughout the night. The combination of various foams and fibers provide different levels of softness and comfort.
Pocked coil innerspring mattresses contain individually wrapped springs which allows each spring to adjust independently to your body for more comfort and support. Pocketed coil mattresses also reduces motion transfer.
Memory foam mattresses feature a visco-elastic memory foam core as their support system instead of a traditional metal innerspring unit. Like latex foam, memory foam is able to deliver both comfort and spinal support.
Memory foam responds to your body temperature by softening with warmth, allowing the foam to contour to your body when you lie down. Newer technology such as gel memory foam mattresses minimize the residual heat common in memory foam mattresses.
Memory foam can help promote a more restful sleep because it provides significant pressure relief to help reduce tossing and turning. It also drastically reduces motion transfer from one partner to another.
Hybrid mattresses combine an individually pocketed innerspring system with memory foam to deliver the benefits of both technologies. Hybrids allow sleepers to enjoy the perfect blend of sturdy support and contouring comfort.
The coil system enables the mattress to retain the bounciness that sleepers enjoy on innerspring mattresses, while the layers of memory foam conform to your body while dispersing your weight evenly throughout the bed.
In its simplest form, a latex foam mattress is one that has been manufactured using the collected and processed sap of a rubber tree as its internals, instead of using traditional bedding technology like air or springs. They are widely considered to be the best mattress for back pain, most durable, natural and healthy. They are also popular for those with allergies because the hypoallergenic organic material makes them the healthiest and most eco friendly mattress on the market.
Latex mattresses conform to the curves in your body and disperse your weight evenly across the surface of the bed. Compared to memory foam, Latex mattresses often are springier, release quickly and less sensitive to temperature changes.
