Also be mindful of the mattress density, specially if you are opting for a foam mattress. This is how density impacts a variety of foam mattress features:
Higher the density, more compact will be the mattress. More cells/molecules (basic building units) fit into the structure by becoming smaller in diameter and size.
Higher density mattresses are quite resistant to deformation. Even after regular use, the mattresses with high-density foams seldom lose their core structure. You need to put a lot of weight on the surface to induce sinkage. This resilience factor is useful when it comes to heavyweight people.
foams with high-density remarkably reduce motion transfer, making it a great motion isolating surface.
Low-density mattresses have poor moisture absorption quality. The space between the foam cells retains water. Compact the structure, easier it gets for liquids to absorb.
high-density foams are generally hot in feel with poor airflow, due to increased compactness and little to no space for heat to transfer. It’s also worth mentioning here that the warmer your mattress gets at night, the better becomes the conformability. With the increase in density, your mattress temperature further increases, making it more comfy and cushioning.
