Best Memory Foam Mattress - Honest Guide
On this list of Best Memory Foam Mattresses, you'll see some mattresses that you might have heard of along with some which you most likely won't have. Although there are a lot of Top 5, Top 10, Top 20 lists out there, remember that all of those websites are on commission and simply list products in the order that helps them make the most money (check the small print at the bottom of those webpages, or in their T&Cs if you don't believe me!).
Yes...we're selling mattresses too, but Linthorpe Beds has made it's name based on honest advice. Use the button below to help you answer the question, "What is the Best Memory Foam Mattress?"
Like with most products, this comes down to what you are personally looking for from a Memory Foam Mattress. Would anyone expect to Google "What is the Best Car?" and expect to find a definitive answer? We've broken down our advice into a few categories, depending on what you're looking for:
Best Value for Money
The mattresses we've picked out from Breasley and Postureflex, tick all the boxes in terms of what is expected from a quality Memory Foam Mattress. They have a decent depth, a nice split between the amounts of Memory Foam and High Density Foam used, and have the usual benefits that come with being able to remove and wash the covers separately. There certainly are cheaper memory foam mattresses available, but these are quality products which are built to last. Breasley mattresses even include a 10 Year Guarantee on the mattress core.
Temperature Control & Cool Blue Foam
There is an unfortunate element to standard memory foam mattresses which most people aren't aware of until after they've spent a few weeks sleeping on one. Memory foam tends to hold on to body heat much more than other mattress filling types. This means that if someone is a particularly warm sleeper in general, they may find that the added heat retention causes them to become quite uncomfortable. To offset this issue, some memory foam mattresses come with a higher quality cover infused with fibres such as tencel, which helps regulate your body temperature.
Superior to this approach is the recent innovation Cool Blue Foam, which for all intents and purposes works in exactly the same way that memory foam does, apart from it actually disperses body heat and keeps you cool.
Hybrid Technology - Pocket Springs & Memory Foam
Higher quality still, comes in the form of Memory Foam Mattresses which also incorporate other tired and tested technologies as well. Many people enjoy the benefits that a Pocket Sprung Mattress gives them. This type of spring system is able to effectively 'follow the shape' of your body, making it highly supportive, as it alleviates pressure around the lower lumbar and shoulders. They prevent 'roll together' between two sleeping partners as well.
Bearing this in mind, there are a number of mattresses which have pocket springs at their core (superior to the high density foam foam in cheaper mattresses), with layers of Memory Foam on top for the body moulding comfort which it provides.
Best Premium Memory Foam Mattresses
If you simply want an answer on which are the overall 'Best Memory Foam Mattresses', it's easy to focus on many of the "mattress in a box" brands that are being highly promoted at the moment (on radio and TV). However, one brand for us stands head and shoulders above the rest, because it doesn't just boil down to their marketing efforts, and that's Dormeo Octaspring.
Octasprings are a simply amazing innovation in mattress design - springs actually made from memory foam!
The structure of each Octaspring means that airflow is maximised, which keep the mattress cool. They're also arranged into rows of varying tension to provide extra support where it is needed most. Higher spec Octaspring mattresses involves more layers of Octasprings and the top specification product even includes latex as well.
