Which Mistakes To Avoid When Buying And Using Memory Mattresses

Comparison Tool

Wouldn't you want to easily compare mattresses to find the one that could, potentially, provide you with the best sleep ever. I've spent tens of hours of research on various types of mattresses. The result? The only interactive mattress comparison tool on the Internet which allows you to compare different types of mattresses, toppers and pillows, uses various comparison criteria, has three simple steps, and best of all, is completely free.

NOTE: There are some retailers and manufacturers selling memory foam mattresses in the UK and it's always great to see that some offer clear product details on their websites (density, firmness, temperature-sensitivity, etc). And if you have to contact them directly for more information, make sure to ask for as many details as you can before making a purchase. The replies you receive from them are a good way to measure how knowledgeable they are about the memory foam mattress types they carry and how much you can rely on their recommendations.

Real NASA Link

Many manufacturers claim Swedish foam was first used by the NASA Space Program to boost sales for their viscoelastic foam bed.

NASA never did use that basic material in the 1960s. NASA bedding or space bedding technology simply does not exist as such.

The truth is the Swedish Tempurpedic company did eventually come up with a reliable formula now used in the best-selling Tempur mattress.

While Tempur-Pedic pillows are commonly known to use Swedish pillow technology, not all such products made in Sweden are made of the so-called NASA bed foam.

How Long Does It Last?

What affects the expected lifetime of a viscoelastic foam mattress and does a Tempur-Pedic mattress last longer? The answer is years and years as long as it's made of better quality, higher-density foam.

Authenticity Test

How can you check if your purchase as good as real Tempur mattresses? You can try the wine glass test, the egg test, or the fridge test.
