The layer of latex foam absorbs pressure and can reduce the stiffness and soreness caused by pressure points on the body. While inner springs offer support, they are not typically designed to give with the body’s pressure points. Many people will wake up with sore spots or muscles, after a full night. Others will need to turn several times to prevent this from occurring. The additional layer of padding gives with pressure points, rather than fighting them, for greater comfort all night.

Having an extra layer of padding helps to reduce the amount of motion on the bed. When a partner gets into or out of bed, the motion felt by the other person can be disturbing. The top cushion layer reduces the amount of motion felt by those who are still sleeping. Products such as the simmons pillow top mattress can provide an overall more restful night, by reducing the need for turning and by absorbing motion.

Alternatives often suggested include buying a memory foam mattress. For many, the memory foam mattress has meant that they are now able to sleep well at night whereas before they were not able to. The downside of buying a memory foam mattress is that they are considerably more expensive than a regular latex mattress for example. However, purchasing a simple and less expensive mattress pad can offer much the same as far as comfort levels at a considerably less cost in most instances.

No matter what your decision, you should opt for a mattress that will help you sleep well at night and that will also absorb some of the movement that occurs when sleeping.
