Latex Foam Mattress vs. Memory Foam Mattress vs. Innerspring Mattress

by Wayto Singh waytosingh
Technology has made it possible for consumers to choose from a wide range of mattresses made from several materials including latex foam, memory foam, and innerspring.  Of all these three mattress types, the innerspring mattress is still the most popular although both the memory foam mattress and latex foam mattress types are also gaining ground.

Let’s take a look at how each type of mattress stacks up against each other. Keep in mind that your final choice will depend on your budget, personal preferences in terms of support and softness, and your lifestyle, among other factors.

Memory Foam Mattress

A memory foam mattress is obviously made from memory foam, a material known for its optimum response to changes in shape, size and weight as well as temperature.  When it comes to luxurious comfort, a high-density memory foam mattress is the best choice because of its ability to contour to the shape of your body especially in the neck to buttock curvature.

Sleeping on memory foam reduces unnecessary pressure on the body’s pressure points, thus, relieving pain as well as contributing to lesser movements (i.e., tossing and turning) during sleep.  This is the reason why people with chronic fatigue, muscle pains, and sleeping issues love the memory foam mattress.  But many consumers report an unpleasant chemical smell during the first few uses.

Latex Mattress

In terms of firm yet bouncy support throughout the bed’s entire surface area, a mattress made from natural latex foam is the best choice.  Many experts agree that it is one of the best mattress materials because it provides optimum comfort similar to memory foam but also pushes back, so to speak, which means greater support.  Natural latex foam is also more affordable than memory foam without sacrificing on durability.

But if a firm mattress is not up your alley, then latex foam is not the best material for your sleeping needs.  You can use a mattress or mattress topper for the relief of back pain because of its unparalleled combination of support and comfort.

Innerspring Mattress

An innerspring mattress usually consists of several layers, namely, coil springs that provide bouncy support; the foam layers like memory foam and latex foam for added comfort; and the surface usually made from breathable quilted fabric.  These layers contribute to the mattress’ long-term durability as well as sufficient support and comfort depending on the materials used and the construction methods applied.

Which mattress is the right one for you and your pet, as is the case for XL dog beds? You have to decide based on your own judgement of the pros and cons for each type.
