Best Rated Memory Foam Mattresses

Are you in the market to replace your mattress with a new one featuring the incredibly soft and pliant memory foam material? You may be wondering which brand and style of mattress is top rated by consumers.

One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a memory foam mattress is that the ideal dimensions include a depth of 6 to 7 cm and a density of somewhere around 60 kg per cubic meter.

Different manufacturers offer different styles of box and while some are more durable than others, there is no type of construction that has proven to be clearly superior for memory foam mattresses.

One thing that all visco elastic mattresses have in common, however, is that they are treated with a fire retardant at the factory, so expect them to give off a slight odour for the first week or so. This perfectly normal and not a cause for concern.

While there is no particular one bed which is best for everyone, here is an overview of some of the more popular sellers, followed by a look at each of the major brands:


HypnosThe Hypnos brand is best known for its extremely luxurious, hand-crafted beds enjoyed by five-star hotel guests and the Royal Family alike.

Their Platinum line of memory foam mattresses is no exception; these feature hand-tufted covers, several layers of premium material fillings, and their patented, heat-treated spring system. The Platinum mattress includes a memory foam density of 55kg/m 1600 springs in the king sized option. It does not require turning, as some others do.


SlumberlandThe Memory Coronation is Slumberland’s most popular memory foam pillow top mattress with pocket sprung construction. What this means to the consumer is that the unique spring system works in conjunction with the visco elastic much like engine pistons, constantly providing support to any parts of the body touching the mattress.

The firm Memory Coronation bed includes dimensions of 9 cm memory foam pillow top depth and 1600 pocket springs located throughout (king size).


The Healthbeds brand offers two top-rated memory foam mattresses: the Memory Flex and Memory Med 1200. In fact, in both January 2006 and August 2008, the WHICH report rated the Memory Flex as the best on the market.

The Memory Flex model features dual density layers of 70mm visco elastic which lie atop a layer of reflex foam. It is hypoallergenic and features the company’s Coolmax cover.

The Memory Med 1200 is characterised by a micro-quilted cover and 1,200 pocket springs in a king-sized mattress.

Sealy Posturpedic

For consumers who are on a strict budget, the Memory Support mattress from Sealy may be the ideal option.

This bed features quality, PostureTech Ultra spring construction, a hypoallergenic cover, and even a high density of 55/65kg per cubic meter of visco elastic. This is truly a great value for the price.
