Best Memory Foam Mattress

(Last Updated On: August 15, 2018)

Let it be known that any foam memory mattress you buy should have a good warranty and the company should be willing to replace it if they send you a defective memory foam mattress. It should be able to form to your body exactly as your body is designed. It should be able to contour to every inch of your body. You want to buy a foam memory mattress from a reputable company that has outstanding customer service. It should be a long-lasting mattress that will resist dust mites, bed bugs, mols, and any form of allergens. You should derive no allergic reactions from sleeping on the mattress. Neither should you wake up with pain in the morning. The mattress should be able to absorb independent body motion that should not be transferred to your sleeping partner.

Benefits and Uses: The mattress is said to be 10″ thick and will distribute the body weight evenly. This could mean that the pressure points will be spread out evenly stopping the body from becoming sore. It is made from Tempur-Feel material will allow for personalized comfort and support. Does this mean that each mattress is specifically designed for each customer’s specific needs? This is not explained very well what this benefit means. It is made with removable multi-knit cover with microsuede corner accents. Antimicrobial treatment prevents dust mites, and microorganisms from appearing on the mattress. The company offers a limited 10-year warranty which is not very good since the mattress costs a whopping $1427.00 dollars. This is a very expensive mattress and may explain why there were only 4 reviews written about the mattress.

Feedback: The customer says it is a leap of faith to buy a big, expensive product on Amazon and not b able to return it. But the point here is that you should be able to return ant big, expensive item you buy on Amazon. The customer says it was not an issue because they were happy with this mattress purchase. This is good because they paid 41427.00 for the mattress and I hope they did not just pay for a brand name. The customer compares the new mattress to their old mattress. The new one is firm but not as firm as the old one. The new one is thicker than the old one and the new one has more padding. The customer says the delivery went without any problems. The customer likes the old mattress better than the new one even after all the money they spent on the new one. The customer rated the mattress 4-stars and we have no clue why the customer rated the mattress 4-stars instead of 5-stars. It makes no sense the customer only rated the mattress 4-stars. The new one gives good support and it prevents the pressure points from becoming an irritation.

This customer wrote a lengthy review. They bought the mattress and said it had the “new” mattress smell. They got rid of it by leaving the sheets off and airing out the mattress. The encasement already had a hole in it so the mattress was already breathing and I wonder if this hole was a defect in the encasement? The customer is a back and side sleeper and says the mattress functions ok for these types of sleeping positions. The customer says the mattress does not have a “quicksand” feeling (it better not for a $1427.00 mattress) and the mattress is soft. The customer claims mattresses will have a “quicksand” feeling as it ages. The customer claims if you “toss and turn” this could be a problem for you. The instructions say do not use a heating pad on the mattress and the customer thinks that using a heating pad will shorten the life of the mattress. I have never known a heating pad to shorten the life of a mattress. The customer says don’t use electric blankets either on the mattress for the same reason-shorten the lifespan of the mattress. The customer not being an expert does not know if a heating pad or electric blanket will shorten the lifespan of this mattress.

The customer writes don’t use a topper on this type of mattress it may or may not make the mattress better and the customer claims that if less heat gets through the mattress it will not contour to the body. I do not know if this observation is true or not. The customer says to use proper foundation under the mattress; they say a large wooden pallet put under the mattress will do the trick. It will keep the mattress lying flat and even. I have never heard of putting a wooden pallet under a mattress and this seems completely unnecessary. They claim a low-profile foundation will work the best if placed under the mattress. It must meet the mattress warranty requirements. The customer says there are other options you can use as a foundation under the mattress. You really do not need to put a foundation under the mattress. Mattresses inherently are designed to not need extra foundational support underneath the mattress. The customer writes a lot of detail in the review which seemed helpful but unnecessary and the suggestions are given really don’t seem to make the product perform better. The customer rates the mattress 4-stars which makes no sense after the lengthy and detailed review the customer wrote.

The customer says her husband bought this mattress before she moved with him. He was so happy and proud that he bought this mattress. The customer says she wakes up every night with lower back pain. She gets very hot sleeping on the mattress and if you add more padding to the mattress it makes you sink in the mattress. She rightfully states the company should supply a free mattress topper for the price they charge for the product. The customer has scoliosis and she can feel her spine out of alignment when she sleeps on the mattress. She says this is the worst mattress she has ever slept on. She rates the mattress one-star. She wonders what will happen to people with healthy lower backs that sleep on the mattress for years. She really does not know that anything negative will happen to these customer’s lower backs.

Swiss Ortho Sleep 13 inch Hybrid Innerspring and Memory Foam Mattress with Pillow Top (Twin)

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B01LYLCX7P&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Memory Foam Mattressir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B01LYLCX7P - Best Memory Foam Mattress

Benefits and Uses: This is a 13-inch mattress and it includes other layers of mattress you ensure you have a comfortable and quiet night’s sleep. High-density foam and innerspring combination provide for a deep and comfortable sleep. It is covered in a soft white knitted bamboo cover and it comes rolled neatly in a box for easy delivery. There are certain areas of the world the mattress cannot be shipped to. Honestly, the mattress looks low-quality according to the image. The mattress is very inexpensive to buy and I hope the low price will not compromise the quality of the mattress.

Feedback: The customer cannot say enough good things about this mattress. They were very nervous about buying this on Amazon. They could not find the mattress for a cheaper price in their local stores than they could find on Amazon. They were afraid they received a dud mattress that it turned out to be a good mattress. It expanded to 10″ right away. It eventually expanded to 13″. The mattress came in a small box very compactly packaged. The pillow took longer to plump out but the mattress has good bounce and it has a decent firmness. The customer let the mattress plump out for 24 hours and they put it on their box frame.

They say their review is honest and it was not a paid review. This is what the customer writes. But it seems to have a truthful tone to it. The customer rated the product 5-stars. This next review is pretty valueless as far as helping anyone to decide to buy or not buy the mattress. The customer simply says the mattress is good, medium firm, comfortable. This description is generic and tells us nothing about the quality of the mattress. It also does not indicate what about the mattress the customer liked. The customer rated it 4-stars and they gave no explanation why they rated it 4-stars.

The customer says the mattress should be advertised as a firm mattress. It is too firm for the customer who bought it for her 12-year-old son. He likes it but the mother says it is too firm for her to sleep on. The customer rated the mattress 4-stars most likely because she thought it was too firm. It sounds like the mother is not too thrilled about the mattress. I wonder if the low-price means the mattress really is not that good. The customer writes the mattress is well-built. The customer says they lay on the mattress and they can feel the springs coming through the mattress. The mattress looks cheap and flimsy and the customer says it is not that good of a mattress. The customer rated the mattress 3-stars. In the image, the mattress looks cheap and flimsy and like it is not built very well. The price betrays the mattress it is cheaply-priced and it looks cheap.

This customer says the mattress is absolutely amazing and he does not understand why customers are writing negative reviews about the mattress. It plumps up immediately the customer writes. The client says the mattress is firm but the mattress looks cheap in the picture. The client says the mattress came nicely packaged and it came out of the box easily. The customer-rated the mattress 5-stars.

Brentwood Home Sierra Gel Memory Foam Mattress, Made in California, King

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B01GFLDVDA&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Memory Foam Mattressir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B01GFLDVDA - Best Memory Foam Mattress

Benefits and Uses: This mattress is a little more expensive than the previously reviewed mattress. It is not nearly as expensive as the first mattress reviewed. The product has a 4-way stretch knit for a tighter quilt design. The mattress keeps the moisture away, it helps the mattress to smell fresher, and it acts as a natural fire barrier. The memory gel foam keeps the mattress cool and offers spinal support and relieves pressure on the back. The mattress is breathable keeping it cool for a comfortable sleep. The mattress contains no fire retardants and it has no harmful chemicals in its materials.

Feedback: This is the best mattress the customer has ever owned. The mattress came in a large box because the mattress did weigh 100 lbs. The client cut the plastic the mattress was contained in. They put it on the box spring and the mattress fully expanded in 6 hours. The mattress felt soft but the customer ordered a firm mattress. The customer laid on the mattress and realized it was firm. The customer says when they sleep on the mattress with their partner. If either one moves the other cannot feel that movement. They are sleeping very well on the mattress and expect this experience to go on for years to come.

The customer says they weigh 170 lbs and they do not like this mattress. For over $700.00 dollars it is a big disappointment. The customer lays on the mattress and he sinks into the mattress. This is odd because the mattress should be able to contain his weight. He does not weigh that much. He says he has not slept well on this mattress. He will contact the company and see if he can get a refund. He contacted the company and they were very responsive to his issue. THEY stood by the product and refunded the customer his money. He rated the product 3-stars. It is still strange the mattress would sink on this customer because he is not that heavy. I wonder if this is a fake review. Something does not seem right with this review. The mattress should be able to hold a lot more weight than what this person weighs.

The customer writes a valueless review because he does not explain in full measure what is wrong with the mattress. He writes it sinks in when you lay on it and it has no support on one side. Where does it sink in and how does it not support the body on one side? He says overall it is not worth the price. The content of the review is too brief and really does not explain the negative points of the mattress. The customer rated the product 0one-star so plainly he really thought it was a poorly constructed mattress. He also implies it is a very poor-quality mattress. But he needs to clarify this in the review.

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B076KRJ8NS&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Memory Foam Mattressir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B076KRJ8NS - Best Memory Foam Mattress

Benefits and Uses: The company offers a 3-month trial period to try the mattress. You will not find a lot of mattress companies offering this type of benefit to try the mattress for free. There was one review written about the mattress. It is a mattress with medium firmness and offers some comfort. It has a stretch knit cover and a high-density foundation. The foundation gives the mattress a structural durability and a solid core. The mattress has good airflow and it comes with different layers of foam. The mattress is 10” thick.

Feedback: The customer says this is the best mattress they have ever bought. They had chronic back pain and insomnia. Both conditions have disappeared since the customer has been sleeping on this mattress. The customer rated the mattress 5-stars and said it is the perfect mattress. The review sounds phony through and through.

Bailey & Jensen LF1050 Latex Cool Mattress, Queen, Black/White

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B078LRHZ4T&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Memory Foam Mattressir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B078LRHZ4T - Best Memory Foam Mattress

Benefits and Uses: This mattress has medium firmness. It is durable and supportive of your body when you sleep. It has a stretch knit cover like the mattress that was reviewed directly above this one. The mattress is made by the same company. The mattress is made in The United States. It contains body-contouring memory foam and it contains latex foam as well. The pressure relief system eliminates all pressure points which allows the client to have a comfortable and pain-free sleep.

Feedback: There were no reviews written about the mattress. This same company offered a 3-month free trial to try their other mattress. They do not offer the same deal on this mattress. Why They do not offer this benefit is not explained by the company. It may be because this model costs almost $200.00 dollars more than their other model. But this is pure speculation on my part.


We have covered a few memory foam mattresses in this article. They are priced from very expensive to very cheap. There is even some middle of the road priced mattresses included in the reviews. One of the mattresses really looked cheap as it was the lowest priced mattress of the group. The highest priced mattress offered no notable warranty, not too good of a deal for such an expensive mattress. Give the reviews a read and see which mattress appeals to you and which one you think will contour to your body the best.
