Mattress Types

Talalay Latex

Talalay Latex is an innovative material which uses material from rubber trees. It offers the same pressure relief as memory foam with an enhanced ability to provide support and just the right amount of bounciness to provide the push back to enable easier surface movement. Its rubber cell structure lifts your body and allows air to flow through, creating an escape path for body heat which creates a cooler and more restful sleep. Latex feels slightly bouncy and conforms to body contours without losing buoyancy.

Sleep Benefits of a Talalay Latex Mattress:

  • Unique Feel - Gently lifts your body for a light & buoyant experience
  • Lasting Quality - Rubber cell structure prevents collapse and body impression formation
  • Posturizing Support - Conforms and moves with your body, providing postural support and exceptional muscle relief for every sleeping position
  • Cooler Sleep - Air flows through the rubber cell structure easily, providing a cooler sleep surface
  • Healthy Sleep Material - Hypoallergenic, dust-mite resistant, mold & mildew proof

Recommendations:

Talalay Latex offers enhanced pressure relief, making it an excellent option for a variety of sleepers including those suffering from aches and pains. Please consult with a Mattress Expert to learn more about what mattress type would be best for you sleep needs. Contact Us

Memory Foam

Memory foam is a synthetic material originally developed by NASA to meet their need for a protective material which offered high energy absorption upon impact as well as soft characteristics for comfort. Memory foam continues to outperform every other foam alternative with its superior combination of softness and stability. It may feel firm at first but as you continue to rest on a memory foam mattress it will glove to your body and almost seem to melt into a softly cushioned cloud. Many people liken the sensation to floating because the material cradles your body evenly.

Sleep Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress:

  • Posturizing Support – Body heat relaxes memory foam, causing it to become softer in areas of higher heat. Because areas which come into contact with your body tend to be hotter, memory foam becomes softer the closer it is to your body and firmer as it is further away. This quality creates a cradle like effect as the mattress fills into the contours of the body, distributing and relieving pressure.
  • Adjustable Foundation Compatibility – Adjustable foundations are beneficial to people who suffer from a variety of ailments from back pains and physical soreness to insomnia. Only memory foam mattresses are compatible with adjustable foundations as innersprings and even pocketed coils will compress each other internally which compromises the support unit of the mattress.
  • Minimal Partner Disturbance – Memory foam absorbs energy and responds locally to movement which isolates surface movement more effectively than many other materials.

Recommendations:

Memory foam offers several qualities which are unlike those of any other mattress material. However, the beneficial attributes can cause issues for some. Memory foam is not recommended for those who have a very high weight or body density or for those who tend to run hot during the night. Additionally, memory foam has a slower response time than an innerspring mattress which prevents it from pushing up quickly, enabling easier position change. This may also cause difficulty during intimate activities. These concerns aside, memory foam remains an excellent option for those who appreciate the unique figure conforming sleep experience. It is also often the best option for sufferers of back pain or other types of soreness due to its extreme posturizing abilities and pressure relieving qualities.

Inner Spring

Innerspring mattresses incorporate a continuous coil spring unit. Innerspring mattresses can have a variety of feels depending on how the mattress is constructed but it most notably offers a surface sleep with minimal body conformation and a bounce back responsiveness to pressure.

Sleep Benefits of an Innerspring Mattress:

  • Highly resilient – Springs are elastic and will recover quickly with different amounts of "force" behind them to return to their original shape.
  • Cooler sleep – Innerspring mattresses have an open structure which prevents heat buildup, enabling them to sleep 28% cooler than foam. (Research conducted by Kansas State University and the Institute of Environmental Research)

Recommendations:

Due to the variety of feels and support options, innerspring mattresses are an excellent candidate for almost anyone. Please consult with a Mattress Expert to learn more about what mattress type would be best for you sleep needs. Contact Us

Pillow Top

Pillow top mattresses have a comfort layer section on top of the mattress which has been upholstered around the perimeter to create a more distinct look. A traditional pillow top bed separates this top layer by an inch or two around the edges. Euro top beds are also considered pillow tops, but the top comfort layer is flush with the rest of the bed with only a seam separating it from the lower layers. Pillow top mattresses can have a variety of feels depending on how the mattress is constructed but it most commonly offers a plush or medium-firm feel.

Recommendations:

Due to the variety of feels and support options, pillow top mattresses are an excellent candidate for almost anyone. It is often a good option for side sleepers because it offers added cushion on top. Please consult with a Mattress Expert to learn more about what mattress type would be best for you sleep needs.

Pocketed Coils

Pocketed coil spring units are made up of fabric encased coils. This separation enables each coil to
respond individually to pressure, making it an ideal support system. Pocketed Coil mattresses offer high
responsiveness and increased body contouring.

  • Body Contour- The individual response to pressure offered by pocketed coils also permits the mattress to conform to the contours of your body, providing optimal posturizing support.
  • Optimal Support-Pocketed coil units are resilient and can support any body shape or size.
  • Minimal Partner Disturbance- The separate encasement of each spring in a pocketed coil unit causes each coil to respond individually to pressure, effectively limiting motion transfer.
  • Lasting Quality & Durability- A pocketed coil unit, as well as the coils which compose it, maintains its designed form over time, creating a more durable and longer lasting sleep surface.
  • Highly Resilient- The springs inside each pocketed coil will recover quickly (based on the amount of pressure applied) with different amounts of "force" behind them which enables easier position changes.
  • Cooler Sleep- Air goes in and out with little to no resistance in either direction, creating a cooler more breathable sleep surface.

Recommendations:

Due to the variety of feels and unparalleled support, pocketed coil mattresses are an excellent candidate for almost anyone. Please consult with a Mattress Expert to learn more about what mattress type would be best for you sleep needs. Contact Us

Hybrid

A true hybrid mattress combines innerspring or pocketed coils and foam, providing the opportunity to
take advantage of the benefits of foam while pocketed coils offset some of the challenges presented by
the qualities of foam. This combination offers unparalleled versatility in support and comfort.

  • Offers the best benefits of both materials- Hybrid mattresses offer the support and give of a pocketed coil mattress while offering enveloping pressure relieving softness. Hybrid mattresses provide a cooler sleep surface than a solid memory foam mattress.

Recommendations:

If you enjoy the feel of a memory foam mattress but want to avoid some of the concerns, a hybrid mattress may be the best option. Please consult with a Mattress Expert to learn more about what mattress type would be best for you sleep needs. Contact Us
