High Quality Memory Foam Compared to Cheaper Memory Foam Alternatives

When memory foam product buyers are searching for the right visco foam mattress or product for them, they will most likely come across quite a large selection of memory foam product options.
We at The Memory Foam Network recommend that you as the potential memory foam buyer look into the reasons why some of the attractive visco foam offers appear to be so cheap.
First, Tempurpedic memory foam mattresses were the first of their kind available commercially to the public.
The products Tempur Pedic produces is considered to be the most superior of all memory foam mattresses and products.

Why is Tempur-Pedic the Model for High Quality Memory Foam Mattresses?

Tempur Pedic has been around since around 1991. Since that time, Tempurpedic has achieved great successes with their memory foam mattresses and memory foam products. However, many other memory foam mattress and product manufacturers began to appear in the wake of the Tempurpedic memory foam mattresses arrival.
In order for many of the newer companies to compete with Tempur pedic’s successful mattresses, they have attempted to produce memory foam products at much lower prices. Currently, there are countless manufacturers of memory foam mattresses, but only a select number of them actually use high quality memory foam materials like Tempurpedic does.

Tempurpedic has always been known for using three times the amount of quality materials a high quality memory foam mattress requires in order to maintain Tempurpedic’s status as the visco elastic memory foam mattress industry leader.

Many of the cheaper memory foam product manufacturers produce memory foam mattresses using synthetic materials, many of which are shipped from overseas and simply assembled in the USA.
Many of the synthetic materials used to produce the discount memory foam beds and sleep systems contain chemicals which are considered as harmful to many individuals such as formaldehyde.

What Happens If I Decide On a Cheap Memory Foam Mattress?

If you have done your research on the right memory foam mattress for you and still feel as though the cheaper visco foam mattress is the right one for you, just remember that when memory foam is made from cheaper and synthetic materials, it will have less density overall.
The lack of memory foam density in the visco mattress will seem more responsive that the higher density Tempur-Pedic or other comparable high quality memory foam mattresses, but do not let this guide your decision.

What happens to cheap memory foam after about 1-3 months is where the memory foam will begin to flatten or create valleys in the visco elastic material in the memory foam mattress. In other words, the mattress will lose its resilience and will not recover as quickly.
The recovery of the memory foam will get slower and slower until it finally just does not recover anymore.
The result is a still-new memory foam mattress with a permanent ‘valley’ creating what we at The Memory Foam Network call the ‘hammock’ effect due to the cheap memory foam material.

We recommend that you do your research and compare memory foam mattresses before choosing a cheaper version of a Tempur-Pedic or other high quality visco elastic memory foam product and soon you will see the benefits of paying a few hundred more for a long term memory foam mattress with a great warranty and reputation.
