Memory foam mattresses provide an exceptional level of comfort while you sleep. They are excellent for people who suffer with chronic pain and stress because they relieve pressure on the body. All memory foam mattresses are naturally antimicrobial which makes them healthier, too.

When it’s time to shop for a new mattress, you already know to measure your bed frame to get the proper dimensions. But do you also take into account how thick of a mattress you need?

Selecting the proper thickness for a memory foam mattress

A memory foam mattress may be as thin as 6 inches or as thick as 14 inches. Many times, the thicker the mattress is, the softer it is. One measuring 8 to 14 inches thick is best for people who sleep on their sides so they have sufficient support and cushioning.

Besides thickness, consider the density of the mattress, too. High density means it’s firmer and more durable, medium density provides good motion isolation, and low density feels softer. The density rating for memory foam is usually 2lbs to 10lbs per cubic foot. In the case of a side sleeper, aim for a less dense mattress (under 6lbs/ft3) that curves with the shape of the body.

Features that can make a mattress much more comfortable for sleepers

Since you may be sharing a bed with another person, how much does motion isolation matter to you? This is the feature that helps muffle or suppress the movements on one part of the bed so they don’t shake or vibrate on the other side. If you don’t want to wake your partner in the middle of the night, choose a medium-density mattress. 

Another useful feature to consider is the specific type of foam used, like traditional memory foam, gel memory foam, latex foam, or cool-air foam. Each one has attributes that can make or break your good night’s sleep depending on your comfort level.

Gel memory foam is perfect for people who suffer with chronic pain because it greatly diminishes pressure on joints and bony parts. Traditional memory foam is also nice because it cradles a body in a way that encourages better blood circulation.

Latex memory foam is hypoallergenic to keep allergens at bay. And cool-air memory foam lets body heat seep away so a sleeper doesn’t get too hot during the night.

Now that you’ve had a quick overview on choosing one, let’s take a look at the top memory foam mattresses on the market to see which one will be the best for you.

Recommendation

Choosing the best mattress is essential for your well-being. Now it’s time to consider once more all the features you desire the most. While most of these mattresses are available in a wide range of sizes, the qualities that may help narrow down your choices are the materials and thicknesses.

If you’re often too hot while you sleep, you may enjoy a mattress with cooling gel. Take a look at the CorLiving, Milton Green, Home Décor, Emerald Home Furnishings, the Klaussner, or the Spring Air. If cooling gel doesn’t appeal to you, but you still want to dissipate heat for a cool night’s rest, consider the Serenia Sleep.

If you prefer to sleep on your back, or prefer a firm surface, take a look at the Home Décor, Spring Air, InnoMax, and the Strobel Combo set.

If you sleep on your side, a softer mattress is ideal. You may prefer the ones from Classic Brands or Emerald Home Furnishings, or you may enjoy the slightly firmer support of the Klaussner.

If you’re on a budget, there are some great quality memory foam mattresses at reasonable prices, like the Milton Green Stars.

Finally, if you want to create the perfect mattress for yourself, take a look at the Strobel combo set that lets you pick and choose the layers you want and the order in which you place them.
