If you have trouble sleeping at night, that could be a sign that you need to look into replacing your mattress. When it comes to mattresses there are several different types, the most common type is an innerspring mattress, followed by memory foam mattresses and then latex mattresses. If you suffer from back problems, your chiropractor may have even recommended that you purchase a latex mattress, since they help to align your spine. The great thing about latex mattresses is the fact they are super firm and the mattress retains it's shape, regardless of your body weight.
If you are looking for a more comfortable and soft mattress, you will most likely want to go with a memory foam mattress. The unique property of memory foam is the fact that it can mold and reshape slightly, based not only due to your bodies weight but also your body heat. That said, when shopping for a memory foam mattress, you really want to find one that uses gel infused memory foam. For a long time, a major issue with memory foam mattresses was the fact that they retained heat exceptionally well, making it uncomfortable to sleep on a memory foam mattress. However, with the advent of gel infused memory foam that helps reduce heat build-up, the issue of body heat retention was solved. For the most part, the vast majority of memory foam mattresses have some type of gel infused into their mattresses, but you should still be on the lookout. Some of the super cheap and affordable memory foam mattresses still do not infuse their mattresses with gel. The other thing you want to make sure is that you are purchasing the correct mattress size. Often consumers will become sidetracked and look just at the price, only to find out that they purchased the wrong sized mattress.
