What is the Best Mattress – Spring, Memory Foam Or Latex Foam?
Are you confused with which is the best mattress to buy for yourself? With so many types of mattresses such as foam, latex and spring, it is no wonder shoppers like you are overwhelmed with choices. This can be a major problem if you have no idea what these difference are all about. Here is a quick rundown of the three types of mattress.
Spring8 out of 10 mattress bought by shoppers are spring mattress. There are both advantage and disadvantages to whichever you buy. But most likely, you have slept on a spring mattress before. You will find that it is firmer and provides strong support to your spine when you sleep on them compared to other types. The number of coils will determine the quality.
If you prefer the feel of a spring mattress, look out for a gauge coil of at least 315 as that is the so-called minimum desirable support experts have recommended. How good the experience or comfort will depends on the coil distribution. You may not be able to see the inside distribution of the coils, so do find out from the salesperson. Go ahead and lie on the bed to check whether the coil is evenly distributed to be able to support the weight from your thighs, hips and spine.
Latex FoamLatex is another word for rubber. Just like memory mattresses, it is able to bendable, offering better alignment support compared to spring types. If you like a bouncy feel and yet prefer the firmness of memory mattress, then the latex foam will be a good choice for you. It is considered the in-between if you compare to the other 2 mattress review here. It is also suitable for those who prefers a hypo-allergenic product.
Mattress Retail and the Shop For Sleep
While most mattress stores carry the same brands and embrace the same sales techniques, not all mattress stores are created equal, because not all people are created equal. When shopping various mattress stores, we must remember that each store employs different people with different sales philosophies and different customer service approaches; a fact that can make a difference in not only your shopping experience, but in your 'buying' experience as well. Meaning, if you employ the right bartering approach, you can negotiate a better price.The moment we were the slightest bit hesitant to buy at one mattress store, the salesman offered us discounts of $500 and $600 on two mattresses. At another store, we watched a customer haggle a price cut of more than $200 on a $749 mattress set.One retailer we checked charged $59 to exchange a mattress set within 15 days of delivery. Another allowed exchanges for up to 21 days, but charged $139 to $399 depending on the mattress size."
Mattress Selection - A Practical Approach
Is it time for a new bed? Is your mattress flat? Do you lie in a wallowed out pit in the middle? I know, because I did and I needed a new mattress. I went shopping and want to give you the scoop on what I found. Have you seen the ads about foam beds? They pretty much tout the fact that you are sleeping on metal springs your whole life. Which that is true, and what an innovation it was at the time. The foam beds are neat. I looked at one at the mattress store. It does just like they say on TV. The first thing that scared me off was the price. Then my friend told me they tried one. Remember; get a mattress from someone who will let you return it after you sleep on it. Anyway, they got a foam mattress. He said after you lay on it, it conforms to your body. Then, he couldnt get out of the mold to roll over. He sent it back and got a regular bed. I started looking at the sleep number beds. They are air beds with individual number settings for each person. Appears that people would get deeper sleep on these beds by allowing their own firmness setting. Your side could be softer than your spouses side. This looked like a great potential for a bed. In fact, my in-laws bought one and threw away their mattress. They love it. They said it reduced their back pain and they got better sleep. Did I buy one? No, and the main reason was price. Im a cheapo. So I went to a regular mattress store. The one with the foam bed. I started with those and looked my way down. They have inner spring mattresses for the same price as a foam bed. Still too much. So as I stepped down in price, I noticed that basically, the mattresses were the same, they just reduced the amount and quality of layering components on the top surface. Some had fewer springs, so I had to watch and make sure the spring count was still as high as possible. So what did I finally decide on? A Simmons Beautyrest® World Class® Exceptionale Two Story® Coil on Coil Beauty Rest. It was cheaper than my original 10 year old Serta and I didnt have to flip it. And its enormously thick. I had to rebuild the bed to accommodate the thick mattress. The thickness came into play with all the layers of foam. In fact, it had a layer of the memory foam that the solid foam beds are made of. Youll have to decide which bed is right for you. I needed a high quality bed for way under $1000 and I found it. Be sure you get the entire set, as the box springs are made to fit and support the newer, heavier mattresses. ZZZZZZ
