Some people refuse to sleep on anything but a memory foam mattress due to the “hug” factor. They say sleeping on memory foam is like receiving a gentle, nurturing hug as it contours around their body. It allows them to sink into the mattress for a comfy night’s sleep.
Memory foam was developed in the 1960s for NASA as part of research designed to keep pilots and astronauts cushioned during flights. The technology is now found in everything from couch cushions and movie theater seats to football helmets. Memory foam mattresses are popular with those seeking to ease aches and pains while they sleep. The mattresses are particularly popular with individuals that have arthritis.
A memory foam mattress curves to the body’s shape, relieving pressure on the shoulders, back, and hips. It accomplishes that by using the body’s heat to soften the material. Memory foam is constructed of memory foam, along with multiple layers of different types of other foam. There are memory foam mattresses, not to be confused with hybrid models, infused with gel microbeads.
A memory foam mattress retains heat, one of the ways that it helps ease body aches and pains. The mattress typically comes with a cover made of materials that wick away heat and are breathable. The comfort layer is the top layer. The softer the mattress, the greater the comfort layer. There’s a transitional layer, before arriving at the core of the mattress, which is the firmest portion and the “tallest.”
Mattresses of memory foam typically cost more than traditional innerspring mattresses but are generally far less expensive than hybrid models. With annual sales and special offers, especially around holidays, it’s possible to obtain a good quality memory foam mattress for an affordable price. That makes it easy for individuals to give themselves the gift of comfortable sleep and a mattress “hug.”
