A Tempurpedic mattress is a memory foam mattress that claims to give you a better, more comfortable sleep. However, compared to conventional mattresses, it’s very expensive. Is a Tempurpedic mattress worth the money? Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom take a look at the pros and cons of this mattress.
The big pro of a memory foam mattress is that it reduces motion. When two people share a mattress, moving about is a problem. When one person rolls over or gets up and climbs back on, the mattress movement often wakes up the other person. This motion does not happen on a Tempurpedic mattress. A memory foam mattress hugs you to keep you more still while you are sleeping. Some people find this a comforting sensation.
Besides the price, a big problem with memory foam mattresses is that they often have a bad chemical odor when new. It can take a couple of weeks for this odor to disappear. People who need firm mattresses for their bad backs may find memory foam mattresses too soft. Seniors with balance issues should not use memory foam mattresses. Since the mattresses cling to a sleeper’s body, it can give a pulling sensation strong enough to knock a senior off-balance when a senior tries to get out of bed.
