Sleep Shop 12 inch Therapeutic Memory Foam Mattress
with 5 inch 5LB Viscoelastic Memory Foam Review

The 12 inch Therapeutic Memory Foam Mattress by SilverRest Sleep Shop incorporates a layer of foam, 5 inches of 5LB viscoelastic memory foam, to be exact, based on foam material that was designed by NASA, no less. They know how to squeeze the most comfort out of anything for their astronauts, so it's a fair bet that when it comes to designing an everyday mattress, they have done the best job possible.

Those who have tried the Queen 12 inch Therapeutic Memory Foam Mattress think they have. You will too.

5 Lb. Viscoelastic Foam Designed by NASA

You associate NASA with space and all the things we put up into it, but not really with mattresses. NASA didn't design this mattress, but they did develop the unique foam material it is made of. This bed comes with a five inch layer of memory foam that sits on top of a firm seven inch polyurethane base.

Their 5 lb. viscoelastic memory foam is one of the most comfort-giving materials there is, and you will agree once you try it out. It will conform to the shape of your body, gently enveloping you in a soft luxury of blissful sleep...

Dual AirFlow for Cooler Nights

There's nothing worse than lying in a hot bed on a sweltering summer's night. That will never happen with the Queen 12 inch Therapeutic Memory Foam Mattress with 5 inch 5LB Viscoelastic Memory Foam. It has a dual AirFlow system built right in to the mattress that lets air flow in two ways to ensure your comfort - always.

This is a deeper mattress than many on offer at the moment and may be more suitable for some bed frames and platform beds that have raised sides or are deeper than average. Customers recommend that you use it on a slatted base, or put a piece of plywood over your spring base as it works better on a firm base.

The depth is due to the 7 inches of Polyurethane Base Foam which is high resilience and does give a very firm base. This is then topped by 5 inches of five pound density viscoelastic memory foam.

This mattress is heavy and you need to get it upstairs in its rolled up position and then lay it out on your bed. It will take a few hours to plump up and there is a distinct paint like smell, but that goes after a couple of days. The top layer may feel quite firm at first, it is one of the densest memory foams, but it soon warms to your body shape and softens up.

The memory foam mattresses are some of the best to sleep on, and the Queen Therapeutic 12 Inch Memory Foam Mattress has the visco-elastic memory foam technology that was developed by NASA. This technology provides great comfort and conforms to the body ensuring that your pressure points are relieved. Thus if you move a lot, while it gets used to your movement and pressure, it will come back to its original shape.

The mattress is designed to respond to your body's temperature thereby ensuring that you stay cool and comfortable. Once you're out of the bed, the memory foam returns to its original shape. One of its beneficial features, called Dual Airflow, ensures that the air continues to flow through the mattress to keep you comfy.

This mattress is made with five inch, five pound memory foam and it has seven inch base foam made of high buoyancy polyurethane. Denser foam lasts longer and is more supportive. There is a four way zipper cover that protects the mattress and can be removed for cleaning.

The mattress senses the weight of your body and its temperature to conform perfectly to your shape. At the same time it isolates your body movement and your partner won't feel them. The 20 year warranty speaks volumes about its durability.

Customer Reviews and Comments

There are over 200 customer reviews on Amazon for this product at the time of writing. They have scored it 4.4 out of 5 stars on average.

One customer said, "...this may work for some people and won't for others. I gave the mattress away after 2 weeks." This probably proves the point that you can't please all the people all of the time.

Other customers said, "It's been one week, I'm no longer stiff or aching when I wake," "I fall asleep at night and sometimes don't wake until 7-8 hours later in the same position I fell asleep. Now that is sound sleeping," "I can't wait to have an opportunity to sleep in... very comfortable," "I am glad I ordered this mattress," and, "GREAT PURCHASE!!!"

Customers report that you should give it a couple of weeks to get used to if you have never had memory foam before as it is a different sleep sensation to spring coil mattresses. Many customers also report much improved sleep and a dramatic reduction in back pain. There is also very little discernible movement when your partner moves on the other side, or gets in or out of bed.

Most consumers who bought the Sleep Shop Therapeutic Luxury 12 Inch Memory Foam Mattress are happy with the quality and have given it a very high rating. They say it is a great alternative to Tempur-Pedic, is a very comfortable bed and that the cover is very easy to clean.
