Springs or Foam? Which Mattress is Right for You?

Pocket Sprung Mattress

Are you interested in getting a mattress that truly fits you? Traditional coil mattresses are comfortable and durable, but their fit is not particularly unique. If you want a spring-based mattress, but are seeking a more personalised fit, you might want to look into pocket sprung mattresses

This term isn’t as well-known as traditional coil mattresses are – a pocket sprung mattress is similar to the more typical version of a mattress. However, instead of having the springs grouped together, a pocket sprung mattress has the springs housed individually. This can provide you with a more customized cushion – smaller areas of the mattress can adjust. Like a digital picture with a higher dpi rating, the mattress can make a more precise fit to your body because it has so many options as you adjust. 

Go One Step Better With Memory Foam

However, if pocket sprung mattresses aren’t your cup of tea, you might want to try memory foam mattress. These mattresses use foam instead of springs to cushion you. The overall effect is similar to that of a pocket sprung mattress, but memory foam mattresses tend to be particularly popular.  

Finding the best memory foam mattress might be somewhat difficult. This is primarily because there are so many models to choose from – you may be able to use popular opinion surveys and/or online reviews to help you decide. Particularly if you’re dealing with severe pain, though, it’s a good idea to consult a professional as well. Talking to a doctor can be beneficial – a medical opinion is always good to have. 

Though it might seem trivial to you, mattress selection is something you ought to take seriously.  You spend so much time in bed – usually around 50 or so hours per week – and a poor mattress can predispose you to injury, discomfort and poor sleep. Protect your sleep – get the right mattress.
