Foam Mattress coming to market

The first company to unveil a visco foam mattress was tempurpedic. Their brand of memory foam was known as tempur. They bombarded the industry with TV ads, big distribution.

The right Foam Mattress for You

A variety of densities exist in memory foam. Generally the denser the foam the more expensive the mattress will cost. The density can vary between 2.5lb and 5lb. The density is simple the firmness you or I would feel when laying on the mattress. Generally the firmer a mattress the more comfortable it will be especially for those suffering from any back pain or aches.

So how will you know what firmness is right for you? Really the only way to determine that is to test it out. Lay down on it, test several ones out get to know what feels good and what doesn’t. With something as personal as a mattress it’s really the only way to judge what’s best.
