Memory Foam Mattress

I recently purchased a Queen Size Memory Foam 10" Mattress for myself this Christmas. Not one of the really expensive ones but a cheaper knock off brand from overstock.com. I had previously been sleeping on an old mattress that I bought at least 8 or 9 years ago. Wow. The difference in comfort is amazing and I am sleeping better than ever now that I switched.

What is even more amazing is how they shipped the darn thing. It was shipped rolled up and vacuum sealed so that it was only about 1/3 the size of the full mattress. Fed Ex basically just dropped it off on my front porch so it was just sitting there in it's plastic lined, vacuum pouch when I got home from work. After opening the Mattress shipment it needed to sit for a full 24 hours to fully expand to it's original size. It reminded me of those little toys you used to get when you where a kid where you placed them in water and they grew to 10 times their original size.

Anyway ... I couldn't be more satisfied with this purchase. The feel of the memory foam vs. a spring mattress is definitely unique but I don't think I'll ever want to go back to sleeping on a regular mattress again.

After a hard day’s work, who doesn’t wish to have a comfy bed for a restful sleep? For that you need to have the best mattress. Memory foam mattress pads not only provide comfort but also take care of your exhausted body. Memory foam mattress pads are fast gaining popularity among the working class, as they are quite affordable and durable. They are better than those pricey air mattresses. Memory foam mattress pads are designed in such a manner that they distribute the weight of your body evenly and provide for a sound sleep. There are no awkward electronics stuffed in the mattresses, only a well-engineered design to alleviate the pressure points of your body while you are in a deep sleep. Memory foam mattress pads induce relaxation to your entire body muscles, thus, making you sleep like a log till morning. They match with the natural curves and joints of your body to prevent any stress or strain.

Lol sounds great! I love how it had to sit and unfold haha. I've been considering buying a memory foam mattress for quite some time now, and your blog has pretty much sealed the deal for me!
