Foam: For the Best Night’s Sleep

February 04, 2019 2 min read

If you’re looking for the best night’s sleep, foam is the answer. Even if you don’t think so.

Plenty of customers are simply not convinced about the quality of foam mattresses, but they’re guaranteed to give you better sleep for longer by distributing your weight better. That means you’ll sleep better, and decrease back problems that cause problems in your waking life, too.

Granted, “foam” doesn’t have the same delicious associations as “pillowtop”. After all, just the name “pillowtop” brings to mind a soft, pillowy surface that anyone would love to sleep on.

But the truth behind pillowtop mattresses is that they contain steel coils — and this causes all sorts of problems with your sleep. They cause problems with your back, too, so your sleep problems start to overlap with your waking life.

Spring Mattresses

Here’s the thing: the coils in spring mattresses push against your body with the same weight that you impress upon them. And they press against you in a grid pattern underneath the top of the mattress so they’re not evenly distributed. The idea behind the grid is that it evenly distributes weight, but since each coil comes into contact with a different part of the body, weight is distributed haphazardly. Over time, the springs begin to condense and warp, further increasing the pressure.

High-Quality Foam Mattresses

A high-quality foam mattress, on the other hand, distributes weight much more evenly. In fact, a good foam mattress decreases pressure points by over 80%.

Not only does this mean that the mattress will last longer — it means that you will sleep better for as long as you have the mattress.

For a great example of a foam mattress, look to DLX, a company known for its experience in the sleep and bedding industry. DLX only carries foam mattresses because it is the best value and provides the soundest sleep.
