There are several mattress styles on the market today, each with their
advantages and support systems. Foam mattresses use specific types of
foam to create support for sleeping bodies. If you were to take a walk
through your local
mattress store serving San Dimas, you’ll find two popular types of foam mattress: latex foam and
memory foam. While there are similarities between the two when it comes
to comfort, there are many defining differences.
Latex mattresses are constructed from layers of latex foam, which can either
be made by using plant-based or synthetic materials. These mattresses
are breathable and offer sleepers a characteristic buoyant or springy
feeling. Latex foam tends to be more solid than memory foam. Memory foam
mattresses are made of a viscoelastic, polyurethane material with a high
density. This foam is designed to contour and conform around your body.
Because of this distinctive feature, memory foam mattresses are effective
at relieving pressure, and these mattresses offer sleepers a floating
sensation, as though they are sleeping on clouds.
