Latex or Memory Foam - which is better?

Watch our video explaining whether Latex or Memory Foam is better for you.

Which is better in a mattress, memory foam or latex foam? Here we look at some pros and cons.

Both types of mattress conform well to your body shape and offer good support, especially for hips and shoulders if you sleep on your side – although memory foam is known for its excellent pressure relief. Memory foam responds and recovers slowly whereas latex foam responds and recovers immediately, making it quite bouncy – although bounce helps you to turn over
in your sleep.

Latex foam has an open cell structure keeping it cool fresh and breathable, whereas memory foam has a closed cell structure making it less breathable and a bit warmer to sleep on.

Latex foam is durable and resilient but can be expensive and heavy to move.

Both materials are good at reducing partner disturbance when you move,  great ifyou’re a wriggler.

Both are quiet in useso no squeaky springs to keep you or the neighbors awake.

Whichever you choose make sure it’s right for you.
