12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress by Sleep Innovations
Anyone who has a tighter budget can look at the Sleep Innovations 12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress. This mattress is made from two layers:
- The top layer is made from 2.5 inches of SureTemp memory foam. The manufacturer calls this layer the comfort layer.
- The bottom layer is made from 9.5 inches of responsive support foam. The manufacturer calls this layer the support layer.
The manufacturer states that the mattress is great for anyone who suffers from severe back pain as the mattress adjusts to take the shape of the body while providing optimal support to the back and spine. Apart from providing a better night’s sleep, the mattress is also suitable for all those who suffer from allergies.
This is another very good seller on Amazon.com with an average customer review rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. A reviewer said that he liked the Sleep Innovations mattress so much that he would never consider going back to springs again. According to the guy, the mattress is still in perfect shape after 3 years with no sagging whatsoever.
Another reviewer said that he finds the SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress he has bought for his vacation home to be better than a $2500 sized mattress he uses at home.
According to another reviewer, he has been using the mattress for two years and he likes it so much that he decided to buy one for his mother for Christmas. It turned out that his mother loves the mattress as well.
On the negative side, the SureTemp mattress is not available in different levels of hardness. However the manufacturer describes the mattress as having a medium-soft to medium-firm feel. For this reason, the mattress should appeal to those who prefer a slightly firmer feel as well as those who prefer slightly softer mattresses.
On the plus side is the fact that Sleep Innovations is selling the mattress on Amazon.com at the very aggressive price of $399 for a queen sized bed. A twin bed is slightly cheaper at $349 while a king sized bed costs $579. Considering that some manufacturers are selling memory foam mattresses at $3000, it is quite surprising how come Sleep Innovations is selling the 12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress at such a low cost.
Perhaps most impressive is the fact that the mattress comes with an incredible 20 year warranty. While the SureTemp is maybe not the best foam mattress available on the market, it is indeed a really good mattress for back pain sufferers at a considerably low price.
