Author imageThe Mattress Warehouse

With the new year around the corner, you are probably setting some resolutions on how to live a better life in 2022, right? And if getting more restorative sleep is not on your list, you should add it now. Moreover, unlike most new years resolutions, getting better sleep doesn’t only rely on sheer force of will. You can help yourself to achieve this resolution by investing in a new memory foam mattress. At The Mattress Warehouse, we care about your sleep. So we went and made it easy for you to pick the perfect mattress for your unique circumstances. Read on to find out how the top memory foam mattresses can help you be the best version of yourself in 2022.

Why a memory foam mattress is everything you’ve dreamed about

Because a memory foam mattress has fewer (no) moving parts than an innerspring mattress, it is less likely to break. So you won’t have to be scared of a spring snapping under you while you sleep. Or, of a broken coil sticking out of the bed with the potential of mortally wounding you…

Of course, there are those sleepers who prefer to sleep on the traditional spring mattress, and we don’t judge. There are fantastic spring mattresses out there, don’t get us wrong. It’s just that memory foam mattresses conform perfectly to your body while you sleep, so it feels so much more comfortable and supportive. And that is why we have no scruples to recommend the following memory foam mattresses.

You are unique, and so are your sleeping needs. So for you to make the best possible choice, we asked Mr Memory Foam Mattress South Africa (aka our in house sleep expert) to break down which memory foam mattresses are the best for these categories:

  • A tight budget
  • Looking for luxury
  • Athletic and active people
  • Aged and elderly
  • Cuddly couples

So without further ado, let’s take a look at what your best memory foam mattress options are for 2022.

Best budget buy – Forgeron Classique Foam Mattress

The Magniflex Vitale Armonioso Mattress is the pinnacle of the Magniflex mattress series. Made from only the very best materials, this is truly one of the most luxurious mattresses you can imagine. Furthermore, the mattress conforms to the highest European standards, the fabric it is made from is fire retardant and Oeko-Tex certified. In other words, it is not harmful to humans or the environment. The combination of high-density memory foam at the centre of the mattress, and softer foam on the outside makes it feel like you are floating on air. Unfortunately, the mattress only comes in one size, so if you don’t sleep on a Queen XL bed, you’ll have to get a new base to support this super luxurious mattress.

For active people – Kooi Pure Plush Mattress

Designed by a former Springbok rugby player specifically for active people, getting the Kooi Pure Plush is a no-brainer for this specific category. If you are an exercise junky, that is. When you are active all the time, your body tends to take some bruising and battering. That is why the soft, conformable memory foam of the Kooi Pure Plush is so welcoming after a long day. When you lie down on it, you get all the support you need to get the deep, restorative sleep that your body craves to recharge and perform at its best.

With its medium comfort rating, it offers enough support without being too hard on their frail bodies. But what really makes the Tempur Micro-Tech mattress such an excellent choice for aged people is how easy it is to maintain.
