    Memory foam mattress

    I want to buy a memory foam mattress but don't know what I'm looking for really, I need to get it from tesco direct as I have all my club card vouchers to use.

    Has any one got any advise what to look for and do I want all memory foam! Or sprung I don't know!! I just want to sleep well lol.

    Many thanks in advance.

    If you tend to feel warm/hot when you sleep, I would never recommend memory foam, which gives me the feeling of sinking into 'quick sand' and does not have much/any bounce. (If feeling too hot is not an issue for you, however, then memory foam may suit you.)

    I would recommend a mattress with a very high number of pocket springs from a quality manufacturer (though these are expensive), though by far the best way of finding out what's best for you is to go to a bed shop and try out the mattresses there. You should lie on the mattresses in the bed shop for a reasonable amount of time in your usual sleeping position, though I sometimes feel a bit silly doing this...

    Lol changed it ....... My spelling isn't the best lol.

    we got a memory foam tempur mattress we've had it about 3 months now & we are still getting used to it, like "over the knee said" you get quite hot so i would highly recommend that you get the correct mattress protecter that are designed for the memory foam mattresses to help keep you cooler also the depth of memory foam is quite important we got a 5" thick one, i do miss my normal sprung mattress though & i think when its time to change again i will prob go back ... we got ours from the web can't remember where lol but some companies offer a trial period, if you don't like you can send back, i highly recommend this as you need to sleep in it for at least a week to see if it's right for you

    Go to a showroom and try before you buy is my suggestion, make sure you are happy and like it.
    The cheapo ones tend to make you very warm and sweaty, just a warning.

    2 inches memory foam with pocket sprung is very good in (rough price £225-£300 or
    4inches memory foam with 6inches good supportive foam (refex ect) (rough price depending on supportive foam £225-£350)

    Does this seem ok?

    Complete relaxing comfort and supports body weight evenly. Product size: 150 x 200 x 20 cm. 17.5 cm normal foam + 2.5 cm 54d memory foam fabric cover detail: white, knitted 100% Polyester. Memory foam density: 54d. Memory foam complies with bs 5852:1992 and bs7177 2008. Memory foam treated with antimicrobial

    2.5cm of memory foam? that seems pritty less to me whats the link for this

    thats a king size one and 2.5cm (1inch )is really bad not worth a penny you want 5cm (2inch) memory foam

    i just though if you are going to get a memory foam of that thickness 2.5cm 1 inch your prob better off just getting a topper would work out cheaper

    I'll leave that one then Ty all for the advice.

    Personally , I would never buy one again . We bought one , the one that comes boxed and you leave 24 hours for it to expand and settle in . It was a decent make and reduced to £200 . But , it made you so hot you sweated all night . At least with a conventional mattress there is an air flow keeping you cool , but with these things , no air flow as it's like thick insulation it's just to uncomfortable .
    Buy a decent pocket sprung mattress instead.

    makes no difference what price you pay for a memory foam matress . Memory foam is a very dence substance and will not dissipate heat like a conventional mattress .
