Memory foam mattresses have become popular in recent years. Some people swear by memory foam mattresses as these mattresses have helped to improve sleep quality and reduce pain caused by neck or back injury. However, memory foam is not for everyone and here’s why.
Heat – Memory foam is topped with a layer of temperature sensitive viscoelastic material and therefore retains heat from your body to mold to your body’s shape. If you live in a hot or humid climate and do not have access to an air conditioner or don’t want to use it while you sleep, memory foam may not be a good option.
Getting out of bed – For those who find it difficult to get out of bed due to injury, memory foam mattress might make it a bit more difficult. Memory foam sinks body into the mattress when you sleep and very slowly retracts, making it more difficult to get out of bed.
If you use an electric blanket – If you are someone who needs an electric blanket to stay warm at night, you will not be able to use it with a memory foam mattress. The manufacturers say that excess heat can react with the mattress and cause a fire.
Price – Memory foam mattress is priced a lot higher than regular spring mattresses.
