The Complete Mattress Buying Guide 2022
Memory foam, often called visco-elastic foam, is a temperature responsive foam that molds to the shape of your body as you weigh it down. Memory foam is renowned for reducing pressure points and relieving pain. As the foam adapts to the shapes of your body, memory foams feel warmer. It also absorbs movement and reduces motion disturbance.
Rebound Foam is a type of foam that is manufactured by cutting and gluing shredded foam together. It’s incredibly dense, and it gives a sturdy foundation that can endure significant strain while still lasting a long time.
For those who want all-around comfort without sacrificing support, foam mattresses are the way to go. The suppleness of the foam relieves pressure and allows the spine to return to its natural position.
COLD CURE FOAM
Cold cure foam is a type of moulded synthetic latex. Cold cure foam is a dense and hard-wearing foam that is highly resilient to flattening and can maintain its form and support for longer than other foams. Cold cure foam boasts a ‘skin’ layer on top that prevents air from escaping, which helps the mattress‘s structure to retain its form even after frequent usage.
Firm and bouncy support is provided by natural latex, which covers the entire bed. It gives comfort comparable to memory foam while pushing back, giving greater stability than memory foam. Natural latex mattresses are cooling and help to control temperature while still providing excellent support.
Knitted fabric is a more recent type of fabric that is thick, soft, somewhat flexible, and breathable.
Polyester is an excellent choice for people who want a no-frills mattress cover.
PVC AND PU MEDICALLY APPROVED FABRIC
The anti-bacterial covering on this PVC and PU medically approved fabric is based on silver ions. The mattress will be dry, cool, and fresh throughout the night. The silver element inhibits bacterial growth and prevents allergy responses.
Damask fabric has a threaded, somewhat glossy look with a moderately rough texture. Damask is a very long-lasting fabric that has been used as a mattress cover for many many years.
A foam encasement around a mattress’s spring unit provides edge support and ensures edge-to-edge comfort across the entire mattress, helping to maintain the shape of the bed while also providing long-lasting comfort. A foam encasement may help extend the life of your mattress by reducing the chance of mattress edge sink (usually caused by sitting on the edge of the bed).
A pillow top that looks like a cushion positioned on top of a mattress.
A plush top is made of several inches of high-quality foam or latex that sits atop the innerspring system to cushion one’s first fall into the mattress, after which the innersprings’ resilience comes into play to provide support.
PLUSH EURO TOP
The plush euro top is made by adding an euro top layer over a plush top layer to provide a multi-tiered support that delivers the appropriate amount of support according on how one uses the mattress: sitting on the edge or resting sideways.
A thin layer of fibre for a more firm feel.
DOUBLE PILLOW TOP
A double pillow top is a two-layer cushion system that combines luxury and comfort by combining two layers of pillow top cushions.
