You may have heard about memory foam and it left you wondering whether it could improve the quality of your sleep or not. Some people love it but others prefer different materials. What exactly is it? And what are the pros and cons?
It was first discovered in the 1970s by NASA. Yes, you read that right, by that famous independent space agency of the USA. Memory foam was originally developed for comfortable airplane seats and seatbelts. It wasn’t until 1991 that a mattress company started using the material mainly for their mattresses.
Memory foam’s main component is a polymer called polyurethane. This substance is common and versatile, it can be used on a wide range of products. Also known as viscoelastic, it has slow-moving properties – after you press down on it and release the pressure, it will remain in that shape for a few seconds before springing back up.
Memory foam mattresses contour the shape of the body and spinal, hug body curves, and make you feel like you are sleeping on a fluffy cloud.
This material is resistant to allergens, thanks to the high density of the material. Also, the components are usually made of things that don’t trigger allergies – no wool, feathers, etc.
Rather than movement, memory foam reacts to heat and will do a great job at reducing motion transfer between sleep partners.
Don’t worry! Nowadays, fewer chemicals are used although it is not as eco-friendly as other materials.
The density can be both an advantage and disadvantage. Full memory foam mattresses are heavy and difficult to move by one person.

It could make them less comfortable in a warm-weather unless it is combined with other materials such as natural latex.
