Surely you remember when innerspring mattresses were the “norm.” These mattresses were affordable and comfortable for a night or two. Then, waterbeds had their day, although their day wasn’t very long-lived.
Then, memory foam came along. Memory foam was in an entirely different realm than waterbeds and especially innerspring mattresses. Memory foam seemed to be the material of the future. And it was.
But, along came the latex mattress.
Don’t get me wrong, memory foam is great.
Consumers enjoy the memory foam mattress for many reasons. These mattresses don’t create pressure points like innerspring mattresses do. Memory foam uses body temperature in an interesting way. As you lie down, the memory foam softens and begins to conform to your body shape and position. Thus, memory foam cradles you as you sleep.
The biggest complaint that consumers have with memory foam mattresses is that they are not breathable. Memory foam traps heat in and causes some discomfort. Some people say that they cannot get an optimal night’s sleep because they wake up “hot.”
Latex mattresses just have a few more benefits.
-Latex mattresses are breathable. Latex mattresses allow for air flow. Since talalay latex mattresses are especially airy, they are extremely popular.
-Latex mattresses are naturally hypo-allergenic which creates the perfect sleeping environment for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
-Latex mattresses naturally resist all of those nasty things that you don’t want in your RV bed. These include dust mites, mold and mildew.
-Latex mattresses are considered ‘green.’ Liquid latex, that later forms latex beds, is derived from the rubber tree. Even the process used to produce these mattresses is environmentally sound.
Memory foam mattresses have become popular. Latex mattresses are even more popular because of their added benefits. When compared side-by-side, the latex mattress is simply one step ahead of the memory foam mattress.
