Memory foam and pocket spring mattresses are two of the most popular options for those looking for a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface. While both types of mattresses have their own unique characteristics, there are some key differences between them that can affect a person's decision when choosing a mattress.
Differences Between Memory Foam and Pocket Spring
One of the main differences between memory foam and pocket spring mattresses is the type of material used in their construction. Memory foam mattresses are made from a dense, viscoelastic material that conforms to the shape of the body and evenly distributes weight. Pocket spring mattresses, on the other hand, are made from individual springs that are encased in their own fabric pockets. These springs are designed to provide support and pressure relief to specific areas of the body.
Memory foam mattresses are known for their ability to provide pressure relief which can help alleviate pain and discomfort. Memory foam also isolates motion, meaning movements on one side of the mattress doesn’t affect the other. Pocket spring mattresses provide a more traditional level of support, with the individual springs working together to support the body.
These two types of mattresses come in varying degrees of firmness. Medium to firm mattresses tend to promote healthier sleeping positions and support the body better. Medium firmness supports your body, relieves back pain, and is ideal for all types of sleepers - back, side or stomach. Medium-firm provides a good amount of breathable softness and support of your spine’s natural alignment.
