History, Trends, Types, Marketing, Innovations, Etc.

This blog section is about memory foam mattresses in particular (as is this site) and mattresses in general. The first two articles here are about (1) the 25th anniversary of the memory foam mattress, and (2) the current trend toward boxed mattresses sold only or primarily online.

For help in selecting a mattress, read Choosing the Correct Mattress and Sleeping Position.

While other sections deal with Certifications for Mattress Ingredients, Materials in Mattresses, and Sleep Issues, this section covers types of mattresses, history of mattresses, current trends, marketing, innovations, and other topics related to mattresses.
