What are the benefits?
Traditional innerspring mattresses force the body to flatten to their surface rather than contouring to the body. You can add toppers to reduce the strain of that flattening, but if you have severe back pain or you’re a side sleeper, you probably can’t get a comfortable position.
Memory foam mattresses are designed with several layers that conform to the natural curve of your body rather than the other way around to distribute weight better. In most Tempur-Pedic models, two foam layers contour effortlessly to the curves of the body. As you position yourself to sleep, the give hugs your midsection but gives way to the broader curves of your hips and shoulders.
Below this foam is another layer of denser foam. The support layer prevents you from sinking too deeply into the top so that your spine remains in proper alignment. It gives you better lumbar support and maintains the integrity of the bed.
In some of Tempur-Pedic’s hybrid mattresses, there is a layer of individually wrapped coils below the foam to provide the support layer. If you like the bounce of innerspring mattresses but are still experiencing pain from pressure points, a hybrid style might be a good choice.
This style of mattress offers better sleep quality and deeper relaxation. When you sleep well, the rest of your health follows suit. This means no more waking up feeling exhausted already!
