  • Hi Jacob, thanks for your interest.
    The firmness of the mattress won't be drastically changed by the depth of the memory foam, the firmness is more to do with the density of the reflex foam that is used at the base (or springs if a combination of sprung and foam). The depth of the foam will mainly affect the pressure relieving quality and how well you spine is aligned as the deeper the foam layer the deeper you will sink into the mattress. You may find a deeper layer of foam leads to a slightly softer feel but the overall firmness, therefore support, won't be affected. Hope I answered your question.

  2. 2. What is Memory Foam?Memory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics • Memory foam was first developed by NASA in the 1970s and has undergone numerous improvements since then. • Initially marketed as a medical material for reducing bedsores in patients, mattress manufacturers were quick to realise the benefits memory foam held for their customers.
  3. 3. BenefitsMemory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics • Comfort: memory foam moulds to your bodys shape, which means you sink into the mattress slightly. • Support: A memory foam mattress is usually denser than other foam mattresses, this makes it more supportive. • Pressure point relief: Memory foam mattresses eliminate all pressure points and ensure your spine is correctly aligned while you are sleeping. • Better weight distribution: When sleeping with a partner on a traditional coil sprung mattresses a “roll-together” effect can occur. With memory foam this won’t happen. You will both be perfectly supported on your own side of the bed. • Hypoallergenic: Memory foam mattresses are hypoallergenic and anti-microbial because of their denser structure which makes it ideal for allergy sufferers.
  4. 4. QualityMemory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics Memory foam mattresses and memory foam products vary in quality: • While there are very good quality memory foam mattresses available at reasonable prices, be aware of extremely cheap memory foam products, as these are often made with poor quality, low density memory foam which will not give you the support or durability of good quality memory foam mattresses. • Always choose your memory foam mattresses from trusted mattress brands so that the memory foam is of sufficient quality.
  5. 5. DensityMemory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics • Most memory foam mattresses will have a core that is made of a supportive material such as springs or High Density Polyurethane. • The memory foam will be layered on top. The denser the memory foam, the firmer the mattress will feel. • Denser foams are more costly to manufacture and therefore are usually more expensive to buy. • Which density you choose is a matter of personal preference and budget.
  6. 6. ThicknessMemory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics • Most memory foam mattresses will come with a layer of memory foam on top of another material base. • How thick that layer of memory foam is will determine how comfortable and supportive the mattress is. • As a general rule, 50mm or thicker will give an average weight adult plenty of support and will allow the memory foam to conform to the contours of the body effectively.
  7. 7. Cool Memory FoamsMemory Foam Benefits Quality Density Thickness Cool Fabrics • A common complaint about memory foam is that it retains body heat. • Nowadays most of the memory foam mattresses have a cooling cover which helps to disperse excess body heat, helping to maintain an ambient sleeping environment. • Some have a fabric covering, others have the heat repellant properties built into the memory foam itself. • Different manufacturers have come up with different versions such as Cool Max, Blu Cool and Cool Feel.
