A latex mattress is a good choice for side sleepers as it offers great support for the back and the side positions. Memory foam mattresses are also a good option because they offer more contouring on one’s body which may be beneficial for side sleepers.
A top quality TempurPedic Mattress generally lasts around 8-10 years, while a standard one tends to last 5-8 years. Keep in mind that there is a difference between hybrid and foam mattresses, the contrast being that hybrid beds utilize both coils and foam as opposed to just foam.
A 2016 study found that a latex mattress was more effective in dispersing weight and relieving pressure points than a foam mattress. The findings also indicated that latex mattresses provide better support for side, back, and stomach sleepers.
Latex. Latex mattresses can be flipped without a problem, but they don’t need to be because they’re so durable they can take over a decade to show signs of wear and tear.
Latex foam is the best option for those looking for a mattress that’s eco-friendly, has more bounce, and a faster response time. Memory foam is better for sleepers who want deep compression support, a slower response time, and motion isolation.
Hypoallergenic. Another advantage that latex mattresses have is that they are more hypoallergenic than memory foam mattresses. Latex is a natural material that repels dust mites, mold, and other allergens.
Although both mattresses contour the shape of a sleeper’s body, the latex type makes you feel weightless while sleeping. In addition, it doesn’t sink or sag easily because of its elasticity and responsiveness to pressure. In fact, its surface springs back faster than a memory foam mattress when you get off the bed.
Memory foam and latex mattresses should be rotated 1-2 times per year.
Our mattresses are not designed to be flipped and should not be flipped. You may choose to rotate your mattress if you’d like, though it is not necessary.
