The different types of mattress (traditional springs, pocket springs, latex foam, memory foam, etc.) can have different levels of rigidity. A more rigid mattress is indicated to support individuals of greater weight and greater rigidity could guarantee in this case a longer duration of the product over time.
It is always advisable to read reviews before buy mattresses, so for updated product reviews, check out Sleep Junkie.
An excessively soft mattress may not provide the spine with the necessary support. There are mattresses of medium stiffness, variable depending on the materials used in the manufacture, which could represent a good compromise between the rigid and the soft. In short, there are many properties also in terms of “type of rigidity” for a mattress and it is also a good idea to check them on paper, asking the retailer to be informed about the CERTIFICATIONS that accompany the mattress you are interested in.
In general, it could be said that softer mattresses are often considered suitable for children and the elderly, as well as for people with small builds. In general, Memory Mattresses being thermosensitive, it is in their nature to deform with greater generosity when they come into prolonged contact with the heat of the body, and then, as they cool, gradually return to their original shape.
As you may have noticed, urban legends have spared no mattress typology. Very often these unfounded beliefs are due to bad experiences that could have been avoided by paying more attention to the choice of the most suitable mattress.
The latest novelty in the sector is called Memory Ecology, the new ecological foam produced using renewable sources such as water and natural vegetable oils, even more elastic, ergonomic and breathable.
Due to the complexity of the possible solutions and possible approaches to rigidity, we suggest you pay close attention. These are aspects that can be solved by addressing the issue from different points of view: the number of layers, the division into zones, the greater / lesser rigidity of the slab, the use, or not, of a slatted frame as additional support, etc.
