The Hamuq Mattress Review

A good night’s sleep is always a must for every individual. We all perform well at work or school if we get enough sleep. A great sleeping habit is also key for maintaining good skin and an overall positive attitude. When it comes to better sleeping habits, a proper mattress is a crucial element. This review is specific for the hamuq mattress.

There are numerous mattresses being sold today, each with different features, materials and sizes so it can get a little confusing as to which product you might want to buy. If you need help, check out reviews of such products. In this article, you can read more about the Hamuq Hybrid Mattress.

hamuq hybrid

Features

  • Has minimum foam density of 2 lbs.
  • Uses pocket coil technology for less motion transfer
  • Comes with coils made from 15-gauge Canadian steel
  • Gives great support; designed and produced in Toronto, Canada
  • Can be used on slatted bed frames, platform beds, standard box springs or straight on the floor
  • Has 12” thickness
  • Suits all sleeping styles—side, back, stomach
  • Company provides 101-night trial period for free

Advantages

Good mattresses are not hard to find these days but due to the abundance of models, choosing a great one can be a challenge. To make your selections easier, always look for reviews of products you are interested in. Chances are you may have been curious about the workings of the Hamuq Hybrid mattress.

The mattress has been built with a new advanced design where the company has condensed the mattress and securely rolled it into a manageable, more compact package. By making use of a coil system, the product is allowed to “breath” as air is capable of circulating beneath the mattress. This leads to a

 

mattress that is cool and comfortable to lie on.

The pocket coil system design decreases motion transfer in the same manner as memory foam. The mattress is composed of foam that is wrapped with a sturdy biofoam material all over its edges to guarantee excellent edge support. It also comes with a slim layer of biofoam on top of the coils.

The layer is followed by 3 lbs. of VLS gel memory foam and 2 inches of soft biofoam. It is finished off with 1” ultra-dense foam quilting on top of the mattress. Because of the merging of foam layers, it makes for a comfortable bed to rest and lie on and it retains stability as well due to the presence of pocket coils.

hamuq mattress review

The mattress is medium firm which many will appreciate, particularly side sleepers. It has softness due to the presence of the pillow-type top; however, it does provide stability and a solid foundation because of the pocket coils.

The mattress was tested right away after unboxing and even though it was not completely inflated after unrolling, the mattress displayed a firmness that is excellent compared to similar products. Check out the mattress after a few hours and it will have expanded to full size, providing a wholly comfortable and firm surface that your back will be thankful for.

Light sleepers will not be disturbed while snoozing because of little motion transfer. This makes the mattress a nice bed for couples. The mattress can be rotated if you prefer and the company suggests that you can rotate the mattress every 6 months if you want.

Another advantage of this product is that it does not hold heat, unlike memory foam mattresses. The product will not sag after extended use since the pocket coils are known to contain their original shape extremely well, even after a lengthy amount of time.

Lastly, if the mattress doesn’t work for you, the company offers a 101-night free trial run for the mattress. You can use it until the allotted time and in case you are not too keen on keeping it, you can return the product to the company and avail of a refund.

Disadvantages

Because this product has a medium firmness, this might not be ideal for strict stomach sleepers. Strictly stomach sleepers require something extremely firm, almost like a board. While it has a plush feel, it is not overly so and it melds softness and firmness at balanced amounts. Hence this product will accommodate the needs of all types of sleepers. If you only sleep on your side, then you should consider getting something firmer.

In addition, the company does not ship to the US.

Update July 4th: It is now shipping to the USA

Verdict

The Hamuq Hybrid is something all sleepers should check out… if you live in Canada, that is. (update: USA now too 🙂

It’s main selling points are the pocket coils, sleeping cooler, no sinking, and lots of comfort.  This is a product that combines a balanced level of softness and firmness. It is not too firm nor too plush; providing a balanced amount of support with a soft feel.

The product was also a success in terms of less motion transfer so it makes for an excellent bed for couples. The mattress is made with premium materials that last for a long time. Lastly, you can test the product for 101 nights, thanks to the company’s trial period.

The Endy Mattress Review

The top best-selling mattresses in the business are the memory foam models. Memory foam is the choice of many consumers because of its capability to conform to the user’s body, allow for better support and give a relaxing sleep. Many people reported less tossing and turning and discomfort while using memory foam mattresses.

However, there are so many memory foam mattresses available in the market right now and choosing the right one can be difficult. Thankfully we have reviews that we can rely on for info. This review focuses on the features, advantages and disadvantages of the Endy Mattress.

Endy mattress

Features

  • Memory foam-type mattress
  • Comfort layer is made with a layer of 3 PCF gel memory foam on top and a layer of 1.6 PCF ultra-dense polyfoam at the bottom
  • Support core is made with 1.8 PCF ultra-dense polyfoam
  • Comes with quilted cover constructed from stretch knit polyester material
  • Has a height of 10”
  • Has thickness of 10”

Advantages

The Endy Mattress is exclusively manufactured in Toronto, Canada and it is made with premium materials sourced from the US. It is composed of 3 layers of support foam, transition foam and quality gel memory foam.

It has a quilted cover which has a thick dimension to add to the supple and plush feel of the mattress. It is a medium in the firmness range and it provides excellent support. Other than that, the mattress includes some good edge support as well.

The mattress makes use of quality gel memory foam to make sleeping on it cool and comfortable fused with a solid, fast-response transition foam layer situated in the center to prevent a sinking feeling which is a common issue with memory foam mattresses.

The cover is thicker compared to other covers on similar products. It comes with air holes which let heat escape and disburse, therefore maintaining the coolness of the mattress. It is suggested for beds that have slatted frames, box springs, the platform kind, or placed directly on the floor. It will work well with frames that come with slats that are no further 2 inches apart from each other so it can correctly support the mattress.

The product comes with great edge support because of the solid materials it is made of. Users will not feel like they are falling off of their beds while sleeping or lying on it. It is a comfortable place to lie on and relax. You will not sink down into the mattress and instead, it provides a rather buoyant feeling which makes resting and sleeping on it a breeze.

While it will accommodate sleepers of all types, it will largely benefit individuals who often sleep on their sides; due to the plusher design of the mattress, it lets side sleepers depress into the surface, allowing the bed to further conform to the natural curves of the user’s body.

This is also recommended for consumers who want to take their time testing the product—the company allows a 100-night provisional or trial period for it. It is also good for people who take a while to completely familiarize themselves with a new mattress.

The lengthy trial period that the company offers gives consumers sufficient time to examine the product well and guarantee that they are sleeping comfortably on it before they decide whether they want to keep the product. If the buyer is not satisfied with the product after the 100-day period, they can return it to the company for a complete refund.

The unit is also good for people who want a cooler mattress to rest on. Due to the gel-fused top later of the mattress, it maintains its cool temperature at all times for better sleeping at night, especially during the hottest season of the year.

This is also a great mattress for couples. The product has topnotch motion isolation so users will not feel each and every movement that their companion makes in bed while sleeping.

Disadvantages

One of the disadvantages of this product is that it may not feel right for stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers need a mattress that is lower on the firmness scale. It is not the best fit for users who are after a very firm mattress.

Verdict

The Endy Mattress is an excellent memory foam type mattress for people who want comfort and a cooler bed to lie on. It has enough support that can accommodate the needs of side sleepers. It comes with cooling gel within the memory foam to maintain optimal coolness.

This is great for individuals who want a soft and plush bed that conforms to the natural curves of the body. Other than that, the product also comes with a great 100-night trial period, which is pretty extensive. For consumers who want a luxurious bed that won’t sink easily, this is something you need to check out.

AleaSleep Mattress Review – Why/Why Not Alea?

Choosing the right mattress, given the plethora of options today can be rather confusing. In store? Online? Makes? Models? Sizes? Etc… The list goes on. AleaSleep decided to put together 3 mattresses at 3 common price points. The goal being: to reduce confusion and offer the customer a simple and streamlined experience to a great sleep. Let’s see what Alea has in store (pun intended) for us.

Be sure to read on for an unbiased review of the Alea Mattresses.

AleaSleep Mattress Review

Features of the Alea Mattresses

  • Mattress comes with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties
  • Mattresses are Made with Canadian Materials
  • Mattresses all have AleaFoam™ that is a perfect mix between memory foam and traditional foam
  • They have significantly less chemicals then other mattresses
  • There prices are well below that of relative competitors for similar quality
  • Made in Canada
  • Has complete refund guarantee with a 101-night trial
  • Backed by 10-year warranty

Advantages of Each Mattress, Selemy, Serenity, Sanctuary

Alea Selemy Mattress

The Alea Selemy Mattress is exclusively made in Canada, using Canadian materials. It comes with 3 layers of foam. The top part is the comfort part of the mattress, then followed by a transition layer and finally a base support layer. Having 3 layers is key to comfort and support, as you don’t want to go directly from comfort to base, or even simpler 1 layer of 1 firmness. In terms of firmness, its medium firm, a feel a lot of customers are used to when sleeping in hotels. The product itself will mold to the body of the individual , supporting both back and side sleepers, while providing a good amount of support. In terms of motion transfer, there practically is none. The AleaFoam™ was designed with coolness, comfort and motion transfer in mind. The cover is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.

This mattress is great for those who don’t want to spend a lot on a mattress, but still want a quality mattress. Its comparable with the likes of Endy’s 3 layer mattress that is very popular across Canada. The main difference being the significantly lower price tag.

Alea Serenity Mattress

The Alea Serenity Mattress is unique in that it offers both the AleaFoam™ with a 3″ layer of cooling gel memory foam on top. This increases the comfort and support that many people are finding they like and desire. Most competitors, including Endy and Casper, use 2″ of memory foam or a cooling gel memory foam. So the extra 1″ really makes a difference. Its covered with a 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Cover, which is like sleeping on heaven. Not that you want to always sleep directly on the cover (its tempting), but the positive impact of this type of cover are second to none. It’s heavenly *droolface*.

Alea Sanctuary Mattress

The epidemy of sleep. Combining the best features of every sleep technology and revolution. The aleasleep sanctuary mattress has all of the pluses and none of the drawbacks. It features the cooling memory foam that gives you the deep pressure and cradling support, with a layer of organic zoned latex. That allows your body the softness and spring. Nothing compares to latex’s cooling features, but to add even more temperature regulation, the Sanctuary added a wool layer for that added luxury. If your going to be paying $2000 for a mattress, you want the best. On top of this, its covered with an organic cotton layer, thats 100% GOTS certified. GOTS is a strict regulation. Anything that isn’t GOTS certified, isnt for a reason. And that reason is probably because the company is trying to greenwash you. So be wary of those who say organic cotton without the appropriate GOTS certification. It’s not expensive to get, but it has strict guidelines. Guidelines you want followed when paying for organic materials. The comfort and support is second to none and when I close my eyes, I can feel the soft support of this wonderful mattress.

Disadvantages

If your after a really luxurious mattress, be prepared to pay a luxury price tag. The Sanctuary has all the frills, but if you have the budget its worth it. Keep in mind you’ll need sheets, pillows, bed frame and the rest of the furniture in the room. If you only sleep on your stomach or only on your back, the Serenity may be a bit too soft for you. A trick with the selemy is you can flip it over to get a really firm mattress if thats what you want.

If you do want to try it in person, unfortunately you will have to order it first. However, there is a free 101 night trial, with free shipping and returns so its of no risk to you. Other then setup and return if that is the case.

Verdict

Alea really covers the bases with their product lineup. Each offering is unique in its own way and provides great value at the price points. We wouldn’t be surprised after a year or so to see these prices go up by a few hundred dollars each.

Logan and Cove Mattress Review – Pros and Cons

Logan and Cove Mattress Review – Pros and Cons

Features of the Logan and Cove Mattress

  • A Hybrid Pocket Coil Pillow Top
  • Coils are Chinese Steel
  • Coil Count 828
  • It is certified by CertiPUR-US certified
  • Comes with a 10 year warranty
  • A quality hypoallergenic and anti-microbial cover
  • Compact packaging

Advantages of the Logan and Cove

Hybrids, like Logan and Cove have the chance to be more supportive and comfortable then their all-foam mattress counterparts. The pocket coil system eliminates movement transfer without sacrificing bounce and support push back. The memory foam on top gives a deep pressure relief and the comfort that some of us have come to admire. This mattress is a good combination of relieving pressure on your spine, lower back and shoulders.

The warranty is 10 years, which is pretty standard. You want at least 10 years. I would worry if it was only 5.

Having coils in the base is good, but these are imported from china. Something we will get into later.

The silk fill is nice, and it is eucalyptus derived. We don’t really know what that means, but it’s not like your paying tons of money for this mattress. So as long as your not allergic, lets call it a positive.

The Logan and Cove mattress has passed the CertiPUR-US certifications because they do not contain any of the toxic or fuming contents within. It does not use formaldehyde, heavy metals, TDCPP, TCEP, PBDEs that act as fire retarders and were unfortunately found to have negative health effects on humans. You can sleep better knowing this is a safe mattress.

The Logan and Cove also comes vacuum packed, fit into a fairly easy carried box. The queen and king can be moved by one person but we suggest two.  It’s super easy to unroll and is actually quite exciting to watch.

The pocket coils isolate movement transfer between you or your partner, or your furry little friend (not furry babe, we meant dog). So that’s nice if your partner rolls around a lot in the night. It won’t wake you up.

 

Disadvantages

There seems to be a bit more of a smell to this mattress then others. Were not exactly sure why that is. Regardless it dissipates after 24 hours completely.

The coils are imported from China, which usually means they wont last as long. More often then not, Chinese coils break down. So forgive us for not trusting this completey.

It is heavier then the all foam mattresses, so it can be harder to carry up stairs if you are by yourself.

Review Verdict

Overall this logan and cove review has done a good job at ticking off all our boxes except for quality and longevity. While it lasts, it will be supportive and comfortable, but we are a little concerned given the coil construction.

Hamuq Mattress Review – It’s the Best Bed In A Box

The Hamuq Mattress Review – The Best Bed In a Box

Features of the Hamuq Mattress

  • A Hybrid Pocket Coil, Memory Foam and Pillow Top Mattress
  • Coils are Canadian Steel and Made In Canada (This is the highest quality, and often very expensive)
  • 980 Coils in a Queen (High Coil Count)
  • It is certified by CertiPUR-US certified
  • Open cell biofoam top layer
  • Memory foam below top layer for deep pressure relief
  • Comes with a 15 years warranty
  • A quality hypoallergenic and anti-microbial cover
  • Compact packaging

Advantages of the Hamuq Hybrid

Quality hybrids last longer, are more supportive and comfortable then all-foam mattresses. A review of mattress types, show us that the pocket coil base eliminates motion transfer, simultaneously providing the perfect amount of bounce. Foam bases don’t push back like springs do, which results in unequal pressure across your body. The dual layer memory foam top and biofoam open cell pillow top provide the comfort of a soft luxurious mattress. Its a great combination relieving pressure on your spine, lower back and shoulders.

Warranties can be quite important when making a big purchase like a mattress. The Hamuq touts a 15 year warranty. We assume this is because of the canadian steel coils they use. Unfortunately its usually the foam that gives away first, not the coils, so we will see how long the hamuq lasts. Regardless, its a good warranty.

The coils in the Hamuq are made with Canadian steel. Most coils are imported from overseas places like China. Unfortunately, these break down quickly and give a bad name to hybrid mattresses. However; you can rest easily knowing you have the highest quality canadian steel in your mattress.

The open cell biofoam layer allows for better airflow in the top part of the mattress. This helps iwth temperature regulation. The open air pocket coil design allows for airflow beneath the mattress, which also helps you sleep cooler. This can be very helpful in humid summer months or if you are generally a warmer sleeper.

The Hamuq Mattress has passed the CertiPUR-US certifications because they do not contain any of the toxic or fuming contents within. It does not use formaldehyde, heavy metals, TDCPP, TCEP, PBDEs that act as fire retarders and were unfortunately found to have negative health effects on humans. You can sleep better knowing this is a safe mattress.

The Hamuq also comes vacuum packed, fit into a fairly easy carried box. The queen and king can be moved by one person but we suggest two. The queen is 89 lbs and taking it up and or down stairs can be quite heavy. It’s super easy to unroll and is actually quite exciting to watch.

The pocket coils isolate movement transfer between you or your partner, or your furry little friend (not furry babe, we meant dog). So that’s nice if your partner rolls around a lot in the night. It won’t wake you up.

The top is a quality hypoallergenic and antimicrobial cover. It will reduce allergies and help you sleep better.

Disadvantages

There can be a slight smell for an hour or so, so it’s best to let it air out with the window open. However, the hamuq seems to have a lot less of this smell then the others.

It is heavier then the all foam mattresses, so it can be harder to carry up stairs if you are by yourself.

Review Verdict

Overall this hamuq review has ticked off all the boxes of comfortable, supportive, affordable and durable. Its an innovative style of mattress and incorporates some great design features. At this price point and quality of design, its an impressive mattress, which will provide you with long years of good sleep. It’s worth every penny in our eyes.

Tuft & Needle Mattress, Queen Mattress Review

A good mattress is something you need to sleep better. You do not want a mattress that is too firm or too soft. There are plenty of mattresses available these days and choosing the right one can be confusing due to all the different models, materials, styles and builds.

You have to consider important factors as well. If you want fast access to information about these products, make sure to read reviews. Continue reading this review of the Tuft & Needle Mattress, Queen Mattress.

Features of the Tuft & Needle Mattress, Queen Mattress

  • Made with prime T & N adaptive foam which gives a buoyant and supportive quality to the mattress
  • Foam is tested and certified safe by CertiPUR US
  • Mattress comes with anti-microbial and hypoallergenic properties
  • Mattress is resistant to allergens like dust mites
  • Suits all types of sleepers
  • Gives excellent pressure relief
  • T &N foam remains cool and is not too hard or soft
  • Made in the US
  • Has complete refund guarantee with a 100-night trial
  • Backed by 10-year warranty

Advantages

This product from Tuft & Needle is exclusively made in the US. The mattress comes with 2 layers of foam—the top layer which is the comfort part of the mattress is 3” of polyfoam and is 2.9 PCF while the bottom layer is composed of 7” polyfoam which is 1.8 PCF. The bottom serves as the base of the mattress and it is also responsible for giving it shape.

When it comes to firmness, it is a tad firmer compared to average mattresses. This has a medium firmness to it which will ably support side sleepers. The mattress feels comfortable and it does not have that soft and fluffy feel that a lot of consumers are looking for.

The product has a tendency to mold and conform itself to the body of the user and this leads to sufficient support to distribute body weight and relieve pressure points.

In terms of motions transfer, it acts like a latex mattress. Hence this is an ideal mattress for couples. The mattress stops movement from disturbing your sleeping companion but it does not get rid of such interruptions, similar to other memory foam products.

The cover has a thin thickness and comes in a white color. The cover’s thinness in fact helps with enhancing the cooling properties of the mattress while still letting users directly sleep on the foam layer.

The cover provides a direct plushness and pressure relief to sleepers, due to its design. Furthermore, the mattress is suggested for beds that have a good, flat surface like a platform bed. It also works great when placed directly on the floor.

The product is great for individuals who want a quality mattress that they can afford. The item can be shipped straight from the factory to your home and this reduces overhead expenses. This is also a unit for consumers who are after a bit of bounce in their mattresses.

It is made from patented foam material but it has a feel that is similar to a latex mattress. This means users will acquire support and comfort without the excessive sinking that some memory foam mattresses give.

Another excellent advantage of the product is that it comes with a foam construction that remains cool, so sleeping on it feels great, even during hot nights. It is also hypoallergenic and anti-microbial, which means people with allergies will never have any problems using this mattress.

Disadvantages

Now if you are after a really luxurious item, this mattress might not be for you. It does not have the additional frills of luxury memory foam mattresses and is strictly a utilitarian model that prioritizes quality over extras. This is not a product for people who are after a spring mattress as well.

Also, keep in mind that this model has a medium firmness so this is great for side sleepers. Stomach sleepers need something softer and plusher.

Furthermore, this is the product for you if you want to try the mattress ASAP since it is only sold online. However, they do have a 100-day trial run so you can decide whether you like the mattress or not, whether it has eased your sleeping problems. The company provides a 100-day complete refund period to make sure that it’s indeed money well spent.

Verdict

The Tuft & Needle Mattress, Queen Mattress is a memory foam mattress that will suit the needs of side sleepers and those who are after a product that has a medium firmness. It is made from high-quality materials and it is exclusively manufactured in the United States.

This is a product that not only provides excellent comfort but it also less sinking, and is hypoallergenic and anti-microbial to boot. If you want something that is neither too soft nor too hard, then this mattress captures that sweet spot that most consumers don’t even know they are looking for.

This product is a hybrid mattress which means you will benefit from the advantages of both the memory foam and Avena layers, which reduce the materials’ less desirable qualities. The Avena kind is made to give cooling, comfort and excellent air circulation.

The memory foam, meanwhile, provides superior support but it can hold heat so the Avena layer is there to prevent heat retention. In addition, the presence of 2” of Avena foam and memory foam has a solid impact on the manner in which the mattress works. Avena foam is a very responsive material so the bed can efficiently mold and form itself to your body.

The cover of the product meanwhile is cut from one segment of fabric which covers the whole product. Even though the cover plays only a minor part in the entire ensemble, it does well in the appearance department.

It comes with a 4-bat design and because it is cut from the same fabric which covers the mattress, makes the whole item look uniform and consistent. The cover is thick and is made from a poly-Lycra blend that has a great weave. Because it has Lycra components, you can count on the cover to have good durability.

Disadvantages

The product might not be for people who prefer spring mattresses. This is also not recommended for very overweight or obese individuals since it will not provide sufficient support. For people who want a plusher feel, this mattress is not for you.

While the mattress is soft and comfortable, it does have moderate sinkage; however, this does not mean that it is overly soft and pliant. It has equal amounts firmness and softness that caters to the needs of a good majority of consumers.

Verdict

Casper Sleep Mattress Review

If you have sleeping issues that get in the way of good night’s rest, maybe it’s time to change your mattress. A proper mattress is an important factor in getting a night’s worth of relaxing sleep.

The composition of a great mattress makes for better pressure relief and comfort—it will also prevent constant tossing and turning while sleeping. So, for peace of mind in the evenings as you tuck yourself in bed, make sure to invest in the right mattress. Read this review of the Casper Sleep Mattress and determine if this one is perfect for your needs.

Features of the Casper Sleep Mattress

  • Has 4 layers of foam construction for additional bounce, breathability and support
  • Includes open-cell hypoallergenic latex for optimal coolness
  • Company allows 100-night free trial and returns within allotted 100 day period

Advantages

This mattress from the Casper brand is composed of all-foam materials in 4 layers. The top layer comes with 1.5” of polyfoam that has a good response. Like all top layers, it is meant for comfort, bounce and cooling.

The second layer comes with 1.5” of polyfoam and this layers functions to give support, provide pressure relief and aid in preventing any possible heat retention problems, which is a common issue with memory foam. The third layer is composed of 5” of support-giving polyfoam. This foam is meant to act as the base for the whole mattress and it supports the rest of the layers.

The mattress is built to produce receptive and contouring qualities for users through its combination of memory foam and foam material that functions like latex. One issue with memory foam is that is prone to absorbing heat.

It does produce a foundation of pressure relief and support, however due to it being prone to absorbing heat, the company decided to place the memory foam beneath the polyfoam layer so users will acquire improved cooling along with the responsive qualities of the polyfoam. At the same time, the design also retains the body contouring and support feature of the memory foam layer.

The mattress has a cover with a segment of white material positioned on top which stretches from one edge to another. The top of the cover, on the other hand, has an elastic quality to it, with a soft and plush texture which makes it breathable. It is porous as well so it can enhance the breathability and cooling of the mattress.

The product offers a nice amount of bounce—it still offers a resilient feel even though it does not possess the same bounce of authentic latex. The contour and the hug of the mattress are attributed to the combination of memory foam and latex properties.

Latex offers minimal contouring compared to memory foam, which is one of its huge advantages. Once you lie down on it, the amount of sinkage will be based on how heavy you are. The mattress is capable of returning to its original shape fast because of the latex-like component.

This product is for individuals who often sleep on their backs or stomachs. It has a moderate firmness to it and it conforms to the user’s natural curves so it will greatly benefit stomach and back sleepers.

It is also ideal for individuals who are not too heavy or light with a tendency to sleep on their sides. The combination of memory foam and comfort foam makes for excellent pressure relief. Furthermore, if you are after flexibility and bounce, you cannot go wrong with this mattress.

The mattress was capable of sleeping cool so this is recommended for those who live in areas with a hotter climate. Positioning the latex foam over the memory foam layer was key in maintaining a cool temperature on the mattress at all times.

Lastly, cleanup is a breeze since the mattress comes with a zipper. You can remove the cover and machine wash and dry it to keep it in optimal condition.

Disadvantages

The mattress might not be for individuals who are after innerspring models because this kind of mattress differs greatly from those with springs. In addition, if you are only after an authentic memory foam mattress, then this combo mattress is not really made for your needs. Pure memory foam mattresses are quite firm and this product in particular comes with flex and bounce.

Verdict

The Casper Sleep Mattress is a product that has a good amount of resilience and bounce which will accommodate the needs of people who want to move about easily on the mattress. With 4 distinct layers, each with different purposes, you will find that this mattress provides a suitable degree of support, but still retains its flexibility.

Due to its excellent cooling qualities, this is a great product for people who live in areas with a hotter climate. The removable zip cover can be machine washed and dried, which makes it easy to maintain. Since the mattress comes with a 100-day trial period, it is easy for you to try it to see if it is a mattress that is going to suit your needs.

What Mattress Should I Buy

Many people often complain about tiredness as soon as they wake up in the morning. Some even complain about aches in the lower back and other parts of their body. If you often find yourself frequently complaining about tossing and turning at night, maybe your mattress is to blame. A good mattress is key to having a restful sleep.

Sleeping in a comfortable bed allows you to wake up feeling refreshed the next day and it prevents aches and pains from cropping up as well. So instead of buying the first mattress you see, ask yourself, “what mattress should I buy?” Consider your preferences and needs and your hunt will lead you to a better mattress that accommodates your requirements.

A majority of mattresses sold in the past were the standard open-coil models where the springs were linked. One disadvantage of this type of mattress is that any kind of motion while sleeping can have an impact on your entire body and that of your partner.

Spring mattresses are not really ergonomically designed, which means it can lead to back pain. Many consumers often buy spring-coil mattresses because they are affordable; however, if you want total comfort and a good night’s sleep, it is recommended that you invest in a better quality mattress.

One bestseller among mattresses is the memory foam kind. Memory foam is made of several chemicals which are engineered and mixed in a manner that the material responds well to body heat, conforming and allowing itself to be absorbed by the heat.

Memory foam density determines the resistance of the material to the heat element. Memory foam that is quite dense will absorb the heat better when compared to less-dense memory foam. The advantages of memory foam include excellent support and uninterrupted sleep.

There are also latex mattresses available. One advantage of latex mattresses is that it is a product of a more sustainable type of production, has fewer risks of chemical reactions and it comes with a sleeping surface that will not transfer heat nor react to it.

Types of Mattresses

These days, mattresses are not limited to spring-coil types. There is a good selection on the market, with each kind having its own sole function which will answer the specific needs of the consumer.

Knowing the Types of Mattresses

Modern mattresses have a range of new advancements and are usually combinations of 2 or more kinds of materials. Knowing the types of mattresses being sold will also help you make informed decisions and this article will discuss exactly that.

Coil mattress

First up, we have the coil mattress. Coil mattresses usually rely on steel coils which are tempered so it will provide extra durability and strength. These coils can be positioned in a range of varying outlines so it can give extra support to particular spots on the bed.

Brand new spring coil models are firm and give excellent support for individuals who often sleep on their backs. They are also the most affordable mattress type.

However, it comes with a shorter lifespan compared to other options in the market. Even with regular flipping, the mattress will begin to sag within 12 months and will depreciate in a span of 5-7 years.

If you often sleep on your side and you use a coil mattress, the mattress will place higher pressure on the hips and shoulders which leads to misalignment of the spine, causing neck and back pain.

Memory foam mattress

The memory foam material was originally created by the NASA to ease the pressure caused by space shuttle liftoffs. Because its price has been reduced, it has become a great material for mattresses.

Memory foam, as its name implies, conforms to the shape of the user’s body and it maintains said shape for a time. A good quality memory foam mattress has a firm feel and is capable of distributing the weight evenly in spite of the user’s manner of sleeping. This kind of mattress has a lifespan that ranges between 10-20 years based on the quality of the product.

However, getting the feel of the bed might take some time for first-timers because of the weightless properties that the mattress produces. Some brand-new memory foam models also come with a strong smell, which eventually fades with time.

Waterbed mattress

A waterbed mattress was popular for some time because it can be heated, which made it a bestselling bed in areas with colder climates. It has a capability to ease pressure from the spine since the water in the mattress conforms well to the user’s body shape. But due to the free-flowing design of the unit, it also leads to waves produced every time the user moves and tosses about in bed.

The waves can hamper sleep and because it is filled with water, this type of mattress is also susceptible to leaking. Advantages of this mattress include excellent durability and they are dust-mite free.

Air mattress

The air mattress comes in a good selection of designs and quality. Users have to inflate the mattress using an air pump to a degree that they find comfortable. It makes it possible to manage the firmness of the bed by means of the amount of air pumped inside it. It is available mostly in single chamber and multi-chambered kinds.

The air kept inside the mattress conforms to the body shape of the user and it helps in decreasing the pressure that is applied to the spine. Air mattresses usually last for more than 10 years however, there are parts of it that can wear out and allow the item to lose its capability to give enough comfort and support.

Intelli-gel mattress

This is a brand new material seen on specific modern mattresses. Intelli-gel is a material wherein posts of elastic gel are positioned next to each other throughout the surface of the mattress. These posts or columns are made to stick up until a specific quantity of weight is applied to them. When the weight limit of the posts is reached, these posts buckle down and turn soft.

The posts all over the spot sustain support and firmness and this results in a mattress with a surface that is comfortable, and has sufficient support and firmness. Another benefit of this material is that it does not retain heat, unlike memory foam.

Conclusion

So those mentioned above are the different types of mattresses. One of them should be suitable for you and your needs. Invest in a good mattress because a good night’s rest is something all of us need to start another day right.
