Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
While innerspring beds continue to reign mattress sales in the U.S., memory foam mattresses are making significant gains, and many consumers are curious about how the two types compare. Consumer Mattress Reports dissects the reviews of leading models of each mattress type to showcase differences in features and performance.
In the article, titled “Innerspring vs Memory Foam Mattress Reviews”, the website begins by explaining the basic differences between the two mattress types. While innerspring mattresses use metal coils or springs for support with layers of fiber and foam on top, memory foam mattresses utilize foam cores with memory foam on top. Whereas the primary differences between spring mattress quality focus on coil type and count and topper materials, with memory foam mattresses the comparative differences are seen in terms of materials used in the foam, temperature sensitivity or neutrality, and density of the core and memory foam layers.
Following the background information, Consumer Mattress Reports delves into the comparisons, taking on each mattress type separately and then synthesizing the information at the end of the article. For both innerspring and memory foam mattress reviews, the article provides a chart summarizing the details of over 13 specifications for four models, and then follows with an in-depth explanation of each factor and each bed’s rating or performance.
The innerspring mattress review category looks at four different series of beds, since individual model names tend to vary by retailer. The beds compared include the Englander Tension Ease, Sealy Posturepedic Gel, Serta Perfect Sleeper, and Simmons Beautyrest Recharge. The memory foam mattress review comparison looks at specific models from different lines, including the Tempurpedic Contour Select, Serta iComfort Genius, Amerisleep Liberty Bed, and the Comfort Dreams Select-a-Size 11”.
While the article compares the mattress reviews for each line in great detail, highlights from the summary include mixed results on odor and heat complaint rates, with two memory foam brands, the Amerisleep and iComfort models, actually performing lowest, likely due to the inclusion of foams and memory foam in most of the spring models. The memory foam group was also shown to perform better in the areas of motion isolation and pain relief. Although spring mattresses were generally cheaper, they also were considerably more likely to sag than any of the foam models according to mattress reviews.
