How to Choose a Memory Foam Mattress?

Many companies offer memory foam mattresses, which may vary in quality. The following guide provides simple tips for finding a high quality memory foam mattress. When looking for a memory foam mattress, look for information on the density of the foam. Lower density foam is often cheap and low quality, while higher density foam provides a more comfortable sleeping experience. A high quality mattress should contain at least 6 inches of high density memory foam, with lighter foam layered on top. When buying a mattress, make sure that the foam is genuine memory foam. Squeeze a sample, and see how long it takes to expand. If the foam expands to it's original shape in less than a second, it's not memory foam.
