If you haven’t tried a memory foam mattress yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. I get it though; you’ve slept on coil spring mattresses your whole life and slept just fine, so why change now? For one, consider the fact that coil spring mattress technology was first developed in the 19th century and hasn’t changed much at all over the last two hundred years. Why not upgrade to a truly 21st-century option made possible by the most cutting edge chemistry and materials science? There are more memory foam mattress choices than ever before, and almost all makers offer a free trial period. To add to your choices, lifestyle brand and magazine Real Simple has just launched a new line of memory foam mattresses intended to please any budget. Is it finally time to give memory foam a shot?
Real Simple’s mattresses are marketed as the “Real Sleep” line and feature some of the most advanced construction materials on the market. Real Simple says the mattresses have been constructed out of a state-of-the-art foam designed to create the maximum possible airflow and keep sleepers cool all night. Even better, all Real Sleep mattresses are CertiPUR-US Certified, meaning they meet the highest standards on the furniture and upholstery market for emissions, chemical content, flame retardation, and durability.
Real Simple is owned by the Meredith Corporation, which owns and operates such lifestyle media and brands as Allrecipes, Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, and Everyday with Rachael Ray. Kristen Payne, vice president of licensing and accolades at Meredith Corp, says the mattresses were designed with Real Simple readers in mind. “After listening to Real Simple readers share their sleep issues with us,” Payne says, “we searched for a solution that would make mattress shopping easy and provide a distinctively better night’s rest.”
Real Sleep mattresses range in size from twin bed to California King and range in price from $600 to $1035, and all feature a ten-year warranty. All models can be ordered through the Real Sleep website.
