But to get all these restorative benefits, getting a full night of quality sleep is a must .

If your mattress is no longer what it was, or worse, it never was, the time has come to get rid of it.

5 key features of a good mattress

Don’t be fooled by marketing or material names that promise more than they are. A good viscoelastic mattress must meet 5 fundamental points to guarantee your rest:

Medium Compression: The mattress shouldn’t trap you, but it shouldn’t feel like a trampoline either.

Good breathability: to prevent the accumulation of heat and humidity that promotes the proliferation of unwanted life.

 Homogeneous temperature: although the room temperature varies according to the season, your mattress should provide you with a comfortable sensation all year round.

 Speed ​​of recovery: when applying pressure, we must see how the mattress absorbs it and progressively recovers its shape in 1-2 seconds.

Correct position: the mattress has to provide the right firmness so that your body rests in a neutral position.

The 10 best memory foam mattresses of 2023

We have researched and compiled the top ten options based on features, quality, price, and real customer reviews. Find your mattress!

1. Groundhog Mattress

Adaptability and breathability in a quality mattress made in Spain.

Firmness: medium I Height: 25 cm

What we liked most about this mattress is its adaptability thanks to the combination of its 3 layers that join the viscoelastic and two types of foam in its 25 cm thickness.

Let’s look at each of the materials in more detail:

  • The upper layer is 3 cm of exclusive Marmota viscoelastic that gives it a good level of adaptability and a pleasant feeling of welcome.
  • Next we find a 4 cm layer of Airsoft-Tech foam. Its main function is to complement the first layer by providing cushioning and enhancing the characteristics of the visco.
  • Finally, the remaining 18 cm are made of high-resilience (HR) profiled foam that gives the mattress firmness, preventing it from deforming excessively and favoring a good sleeping position. In addition, the channels in the lower part of the mattress stand out, which have been strategically placed to provide adequate support to each area of ​​the body.

In addition, it gives us confidence that the brand has dared to compare it with other mattresses in a study carried out by specialist doctors from the Sleep Units of several hospitals. The results seem to indicate that, in most cases, the quality of sleep of the participants improved when they changed their mattress for a Marmota.

In terms of breathability, we have verified that both the open-pore memory foam and the profiles in the HR foam core facilitate air circulation and prevent the accumulation of heat and humidity, which is important for keeping warm in bed and maintaining good hygiene. of the mattress.

Bed independence

In addition, we liked its quick recovery, which facilitates movements at night, and the correct independence of beds that it presents, so it will be a good option for double beds, even if you have very different weights. Of course, keep in mind that if you weigh more than 95 kg, it could be a bit soft for you and you should look for a firmer mattress.

Another point that we like is the mattress cover, which is soft and can be easily removed to wash it, as this favors better hygiene of the mattress.

Warranty and test

The manufacturer offers a good 10-year warranty and a 100-night home trial period.

And it is that its 8 cm viscose are the key for you to feel great comfort and adaptability to your body from the first moment.

Its combination of visco with a core of HR foam, in addition to offering good comfort, we have appreciated that it relieves pressure points and, when two people lie down, its independence of beds prevents the transmission of movement between sleepers.

Of course, it is not a recommended option for very robust people (over 90-95 kg) or if you like to sleep in a high-firm bed.

Breathability and maintenance

Although it is not the most breathable mattress we have tested due to the thick layer of memory foam, its cover with micro-perforated fabric promotes air circulation and prevents the accumulation of moisture and heat.

Even so, if you live in a very hot climate, our advice is to use a slatted base as a base to enhance breathability.

In addition, it is not necessary to turn it over, so its maintenance is quite simple. It does not have handles but, if you do not have to change the mattress from room, you will not miss them. It is a pity that it is not removable, so we recommend that you use a cover between the mattress and the bottom sheet to facilitate good hygiene.

Test and guarantee

The manufacturer offers a generous trial period at home: 120 nights, more than enough time for you to get used to the mattress and decide if you have made a good purchase. Of course, we advise you to keep the plastic in which the mattress came during the trial period because if you want to return it, they ask you to pack the mattress.

Its 15-year guarantee also gives us confidence (5 years of full guarantee and a decrease of 10% from there until 15 years), since it is one of the longest on the market and will ensure you a mattress in good condition more beyond its useful life.

Live test of the best memory foam mattresses of the year

And if you still have any doubts about which mattress to choose, we have prepared this video for you in which we reveal the 5 best memory foam models along with their most outstanding features and our opinion after trying them.

Guide to buy your viscoelastic mattress

Have you already taken a look at a rest store? You may have noticed that the number of brands, models, materials and particularities is considerable.

And it is that the rest sector in Spain is made up of 145 different manufacturers. With so much variety, it is not always easy to interpret what is best for you, right?

For this reason, we have prepared this guide to help you distinguish what you need among all the options available on the market.

First step: choose the material

mattress paddingThe feeling of comfort depends on many factors, starting with the sleeper’s tastes and preferences, continuing with the state of the mattress and continuing with the choice of materials.

It is on the latter that we are going to focus.

You buy it where you buy it, the first of your decisions goes through the choice of material. The technology has developed in an amazing way and today mattresses are made with many types of components, even with different combinations of them.

Do you know them all?

mattress materials

A few decades have passed since the times of the wool mattresses used by our grandparents. Now bed bugs and other insects have it more complicated.

In terms of rest, much progress has been made with regard to hygiene and, of course, also in comfort.

spring mattresses

spring mattressThey have been the most used for a long time. Traditionally they were combined with polyurethane foam, or even without anything and hence the classic discomfort of sticking the springs.

There are three types: bionic, cylindrical or bagged and compact housing.

The biconical and compact case have the disadvantage that the springs wear out faster than other materials.

When this happens, the consequences on the body and also the annoying sounds begin to be noticed. Another of the most common problems in traditional spring mattresses is the lack of independence of the beds.

Pocket spring mattresses, the most modern and with the best performance, are a good option for hot people, since their core allows greater air circulation than more compact materials such as foam or latex.

Many have a viscoelastic layer, latex or other padding that provides greater comfort and adaptability.

latex mattresses

latex mattressThey are made up of a block of this material sheathed in a padded fabric. There are synthetic, mixed and natural latex mattresses, with two types, the Dunlop and the Talalay.

The higher the percentage of natural latex used in the manufacture of the mattress, the heavier it will be and the more likely it is to accumulate moisture. Therefore, it is important to air this kind of mattress daily.

Synthetic latex is cheaper than natural latex because it comes from oil, it is somewhat warmer since it perspires worse and it is also not as adaptable and ergonomic as natural latex.

Organic material mattresses

They are not very common in Western culture, but they are in Eastern culture. Mattresses filled with feathers and vegetable compounds such as cattail and rice are common in Korea, Japan, China and some countries in Southeast Asia.

Being organic fibers, they have several drawbacks. The main ones are the lack of sanitation and null resilience and flexoelasticity.

Air and water mattresses

They are hardly used. They offer no support and their durability is questionable at best.

They are not recommended even for a single night.

The benefits of memory foam mattress

topper viscoelásticoViscoelastic is a material that is defined in one word: adaptability .

Due to the force of gravity, the body feels pressure on those areas on which it rests. This occurs both while standing and lying down.

Pressure points depend on the position we adopt when sleeping. They can be different in each person and also vary in the same sleeper throughout the hours of rest.

Viscoelastic significantly relieves the pain caused by the push and compression that is created between the rest surface and the human body.

Another of its great advantages is the absorption of movement , although the degree of bed independence depends on the models and the thickness of the viscous layer.

Thermosensitivity:  means that it uses body and environmental heat to further improve its adaptation qualities.

Innovation, health and rest. This defines the main benefits that you can obtain when deciding on a mattress made with this material.

What should you take into account when choosing a viscoelastic mattress?

In order to keep the selection process simple and not make it more complicated than necessary, we have reduced all the requirements to four key points .

1. The height

pyramid mattressesSurely you know precisely what width and length you need, but what about the thickness? Which is the most suitable?

The total height of the mattress depends on the height of the core, its density and the other foams that make up the inner layers.

All in all, firmness has nothing to do with height , as many people mistakenly believe. A thin mattress can be firm and a thick one soft.

Current legislation indicates that, in order to sell a product as a mattress, it must measure a minimum of 17 cm . Below this measure we would be talking about a mattress or topper.

As a reference, viscoelastic mattresses usually measure between 21 and 27 cm.

The lower the height, the more important the choice of the base is, because, logically, it will be felt more. It is advisable to have a good solid base when the mattress is less than 25 cm high. Above this figure, the base influences less.

The thinnest mattresses are also the most advisable for adjustable beds, since they are the ones that can curve more easily.

2. Breathability

perspireViscoelastic is an athermic and thermosensitive material, but our body releases heat that can accumulate and be annoying. To avoid this, mattresses made with this material incorporate innovative systems that promote breathability.

In each model you will find a different technique, but the use of the open cell is very common , which, although it reduces some firmness, allows the air to circulate and the heat simply evaporates.

It is also very common to use breathable fabrics such as 3D with an interlocking structure or elastic and comfortable stretch fabric , natural fibers that wick away moisture, ventilation channels on the sides or even the use of carbon microparticles, which improves the Thermal conductivity.

3. Adaptability

It is that quality that allows the mattress to adapt to your body, and not the other way around . It is one of the basic characteristics of memory foam. For this reason, mattresses made with this material are very adaptable.

However, there are always degrees. A high-firm mattress has a higher density and a more limited level of adaptability.

A mattress of low firmness can go to the other extreme and cause an undesirable boxing effect. The body must be able to move freely at night.

Although it depends on tastes and your specific needs, a medium firmness is usually ideal and recommended. With it, you get the correct position of the spine and the relief of all pressure points. All without feeling trapped.

Are you worried that the adaptability will end up deforming the mattress?

Fear not, viscoelastic has a wonderful resilience capacity , so as soon as you get up, everything will naturally fall back into place.

4. The quality of the finishes

mattress closeIf a mattress is good on the inside, its external appearance will be impeccable. Look at the seams, finials, and welts on the perimeter zipper. They must be perfectly finished, without threads or unsewn edges.

Touching you will be able to intuit the quality of the textiles used in the elaboration of the superficial layer. The perception must be of softness, the patterns and reliefs must keep a clear order and the structure must be homogeneous.

On the other hand, never put the bottom sheet directly on the mattress. It would be an invitation for mites and bacteria to nest just below, as they would have everything they need to survive: warmth, moisture and dead skin to feed on. You sure don’t want them around.

Few mattresses include a removable and washable cover . Make sure you buy a good cover, one that can be easily removed and put on and that has a bactericidal treatment. Wash it once a month with hot water and disinfectant soap.

In this way you will protect the finishes of your new mattress and its appearance will remain intact for much longer.

Practical tips for a good choice

Mattresses bought online (and also in many physical stores) come vacuum-rolled. This is an excellent alternative that retains all its properties and is also very easy to transport.

You just have to unpack them and let them rest between 12 and 24 hours for them to recover all their properties. The environment will thank you too!

 Due to the softness of their padding, viscoelastic mattresses can suffer small variations in height . Don’t worry. It is totally normal and does not affect its performance.

 Not everyone has a winter and summer face . If you live in an area with a large temperature difference between seasons, this may be a good option for you. Although it is not essential if you make sure that the mattress has a good aeration system.

 What are you going to do with your old mattress? Some sellers remove it at the same time that they give you the new one and donate it to charities.

Consider this option before getting rid of yours. In any case, always respect the days and times for collecting used items that your municipality has established.

Keys to choose your mattress

If you still have doubts about which is the best mattress for you, we have prepared this video in which we tell you the keys so that you can make the right decision.

5 keys to choose your mattress and buy without making a mistake

A dream come true every night

Now you know everything you have to pay attention to before going through the checkout. But there is one last indication that is perhaps the most relevant of all.

It’s impossible to make a good buying decision by putting a mattress to the test in a minute that will sleep with you for a decade.

Therefore, it does not matter if you go to an online or physical store. The bottom line is that the vendor and/or manufacturer allow you to try it at home for a sufficient number of nights.

Alone, as a couple, with pajamas, with your sheets and duvet. A long Sunday nap or a short night in the middle of the week. Read a book in it, stretch, laze around. Set the alarm five more minutes.

Be that as it may, but try it well.

Start now to pay more attention to the quality of your rest.

Whether awake or asleep, dream big!
