The Ultimate Guide To Memory Foam Mattresses

Ellie MacsymonsEllie Macsymons · Jun 8, 2021

If you find your sleeping pattern is often disturbed or you regularly wake up with aches and pains you may require a new mattress. Many of us underestimate how important mattresses are to our body’s daily functioning, our mood and our overall health. In fact, bad mattresses are one of the main causes of sleep deprivation and body aches and pains for many people. It is advised that you change your mattress every 7 years however, some of the latest and most modern designs we have uncovered claim to last up to a decade.


In the past, the most popular type of mattress was always the pocket sprung; however, over the past decade new memory foam hybrid technology mattresses have become more and more favoured. Originally designed by NASA for astronauts in space, these mattresses use innovative material that moulds to the contours of your body. Many of these modern designs also arrive vacuum packed or rolled up and come with a 100-night trial when you buy online. All of the mattresses we’ve researched that use this new memory foam hybrid technology have received outstanding reviews from even the fussiest of sleepers making them the go to option for customers all over the world.


Dormeo offers an extensive selection of memory foam mattresses on their website including an Aloe Vera range and a hybrid memory foam range consisting of 9 different designs.

The material’s natural airflow helps keep you 3 degrees cooler all night long while the firmness levels support the 3 smart body zones: your shoulders, back and hips. This collection of mattresses is also designed for couples with the layers of individual support that allow you to get in and out of bed without waking your partner up. They even use anti-bacterial, anti-mould and anti-dust mite covers and are delivered rolled and vacuum packed. If you buy a OctaSmart mattress from Dormeo you can also enjoy free and fast delivery and an 18 year warranty.
