Memory Foam or Latex? Tips for Choosing the Right Mattress

Ashley Sleep Offers Advice on Finding the Right Style for You

ARCADIA, WI--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - When it comes to choosing the right mattress, there's a lot to consider. Ideally, most people spend eight hours a night in their beds -- an astounding one-third their lives. Others only wish they could sleep that much, especially as they embark on a busy holiday season.

With all the different products out there, not to mention styles, Ashley Sleep, one of the fastest growing mattress brands in the world, is offering the basics about two of the most popular types of mattresses -- Memory Foam and Latex -- so you can choose the ultimate sleep surface for your lifestyle.

"People tend to spend a lot of time researching cars, TVs, computers, phones, and so on before making their purchases. But they seem to overlook one of the most important investments they'll ever make: a mattress," says Ben Thorud, Senior Vice President of Ashley Sleep. "The wrong mattress can cause you to toss and turn all night, impacting your immune system, mood, productivity, health and more. It's time to learn the facts and say 'yes' to better sleep."

While Ashley Sleep Latex Mattresses and Memory Foam Mattresses both feature the latest in sleep innovation, as well as comfort, support, and durability, there are some differences that could lead individuals to choose one over the other.

Ashley Sleep Memory Foam Mattress Benefits:

  • Infused with sleep innovations like Torso-Tec, which helps contour the mattress to the body
  • Designed to adapt to body weight
  • Helps alleviate pinches and pains that can cause tossing and turning
  • Absorbs motion so that each partner is supported independently
  • Eco-friendly designs use renewable castor oil, natural green tea extract and more
  • Utilizes ventilated memory foam and Tencel

Ashley Sleep Latex Mattress Benefits:

  • Naturally hypoallergenic, renewable and eco-friendly material made from the sap of plantation-grown rubber trees
  • Bacteria, mold, mildew and dust-mite resistant
  • Excellent for respiratory allergy sufferers
  • Supportive, restorative and chemical-free
  • Four-times more breathable than other sleep surfaces, offering unsurpassed heat dissipation and comfort
  • Very durable -- keeps its resiliency better than conventional bedding

"Remember, not all Latex and Memory Foam mattresses are created equally," says Thorud. "While Ashley Sleep builds its mattresses with eco-friendly and innovative products like ActivFRESH Charcoal, TorsoTec technology, Tencel, Evergreen Green Tea Extract and more to help reduce odors, absorb moisture and give you a fresh, clean and comfortable night's rest -- other brands may not. So, before you choose a Memory Foam or Latex Mattress, be sure you know what's inside."
