Considering they are an inexpensive type of mattress these days, there is still an air of luxury to owning a memory foam mattress. Memory foam technology was first developed by NASA to be used as cushioning on spacecrafts, so their long reputation for comfort has undoubtedly been earned. But since memory foam was released to the public domain, the expensive material is now more affordable than ever!
The memory foam mattress is heat sensitive, meaning that it softens beneath you as you sleep due to your body heat. This allows the mattress to mould to your own body shape within minutes, and distribute the weight of your body evenly over the surface of the mattress, providing you with an incredibly night's sleep. Once the weight of your body is lifted from the memory foam mattress, it will then return to its original shape. Although, with a memory foam mattress, you may never want to leave your bed again.
