Memory foam mattresses have risen in popularity over the years, and it's no surprise. They give some of the best night's sleep you'll ever get. The support and comfort of a memory foam mattress can't easily be found with any other style of mattress. Using your body heat to mould the shape and soften the foam, the mattress will provide support but slowly regain its form when you stand up.

Memory foam may also be referred to as visco-elastic foam. Designed by NASA, its role in the early days was to provide a cushion for astronauts as they re-entered Earth's atmosphere. Then it evolved into being used in other products – and is used in pillows, mattresses and mattress toppers.

Enjoy optimal support and comfort with a memory foam mattress. As the memory foam shapes itself around your body, you'll enjoy support that is personalised for your boy. It will take away any discomfort you may have from your pressure points and give you the sensation that the mattress was explicitly made for you!

Enjoy distributed body weight - The distribution of your body weight means you can say goodbye to pressure point pain as your aches and pains will be relieved as the blood circulation around your body is improved. There won't be any squished parts of you, and the memory foam yields to the weight of your body.

No more movement of the mattress - that's right. You won't be jiggled and joggled around when your partner gets up at 3 am to go to the bathroom. You've got a sleep zone that will stay still and provide you with the means to stay asleep all night long.

Memory foam mattresses give resistance to dust mites - being made of visco-elastic, memory foam mattresses do not provide an easy way for dust mites to make your bed their home. It's also a great way to reduce allergies and have a cleaner and more hygienic nights sleep.

Foam mattresses have evolved over the years. Initially, they retained a lot of heat as they didn't have the right design to control the temperature at night. However, keep in mind that how much heat there is, is also affected by other factors. For example, the temperature can be affected by the duvet tog rating, the age of a person, whether they take any medication, the temperature in the room etc.

What happens when you first get your memory foam mattress?

When you take delivery of your memory foam mattress, it's going to feel firmer than perhaps you might like. Maybe your previous mattress had lost much of its structure due to age and use. It's unlikely to have been giving you the support you wanted and needed, and that's why you decided to get a new mattress.

You may take a couple of weeks to adjust to the feel of your new mattress. It will soften up a bit as time goes on, and you'll be more used to it. They can feel quite firm initially without the amount of give that you may have been expecting. If things don't seem to be improving after a couple of weeks, try getting a mattress topper. These come in a range of depths and firmness ratings. Every memory foam mattress is treated with fire retardant to ensure that it's safe in your home.

No matter what your sleeping position is, the memory foam mattress is ideal. Whether you're a side sleeper, front or back, as long as you have the right amount of firmness, the mattress will give you the bounce you need to be comfortable.
