10 Point Comparison Reveals Pros and Cons of Best 10, 12, and 14 inch Queen and King Size Gel Memory Foam Mattresses
CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / October 31, 2015 / "Out of all the different mattress sizes, 'queen' is the most popular size among US couples. Compared to the 60 X 80 inch queen, the 54 X 75 inch full size is a touch too small while the 76 X 80 inch king size is a tad too bulky. This is why queen size memory foam mattresses are more popular than full and king size memory foam mattresses" explains Belinda Palmer, a spokeswoman for Bedroom Solutions.
This Top 7 Queen and King Memory Foam Mattress comparison was recently published to educate consumers on the pluses and minuses of different mattress sizes and to help them identify high-quality mattresses from low-quality ones.
The above review categorizes recommended memory foam mattresses into (1) soft, (2) medium-firm, and (3) firm mattresses. "Soft mattresses are best suited for individuals that mostly sleep on their sides" explains Palmer. "Sleeping on the side puts a lot of pressure on the shoulders and hips. A firm memory foam queen mattress will not allow the hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress resulting in the spinal cord being pushed out awkwardly. However, if the mattress is soft, the hips and shoulders will 'melt' nicely into the memory foam, allowing the spinal cord to stay straight. In contrast, for back sleepers and stomach sleepers, the memory foam mattress must be pretty firm to support the spinal cord sufficiently" elaborates Palmer.

"In addition to firmness, there are many other features one must closely consider before purchasing a memory foam mattress of king or queen size" warns Palmer. "One of the major complaints against memory foam is its inherent nature of heat build-up. This is why 5 of the above top 7 mattresses have been infused with millions of cool gel particles that are known to keep mattresses cool. This is why a cool gel memory foam mattress queen would always be recommended over a mattress without gel" she elaborates.
The above review also describes other shortcomings of memory foam such as "off gassing". Especially older generation memory foam used to smell bad for a few days after unwrapping. This is because memory foam mattresses are treated with various flame-retardants during the manufacturing process, and these volatile compounds escape the mattress upon unpacking. However, the above list of best queen and king memory foam mattresses takes this feature into account and does not include mattress brands known to off gas for days/weeks. "Even though modern, high-quality memory foam has minimal off gassing, it doesn’t hurt to air out a mattress for one or two days after unwrapping" says Palmer.
The mattress review takes in to account various other factors into consideration such as (1) if the mattresses are made in the USA, (2) the manufacturer's warranty period, (3) whether they are made of 100% foam or whether they are hybrids of foam and innersprings, and (4) whether the mattresses are CertiPUR-US(R) certified. These are extremely important features to look at before purchasing a memory foam mattress of king or queen size.
"For those who still don't own a bed frame, the decision on whether to go with a queen bed or king bed can be quite challenging, yet is critically important" warns Palmer. "The difference between a queen and king Tempur-Pedic mattress lies in its width. The standard/eastern king is 16 inches wider than the queen. For a relatively small couple, the queen will work just fine. However, couples that are relatively big-made may need to consider getting a king-sized bed or separate beds. If at least one partner is very tall (e.g. over 6'6") couples may need to consider buying an 84" tall California king bed as opposed to a 80" tall standard king size bed" explains Palmer.
The comparison also highlights the importance of picking the right mattress thickness. If the box springs are the standard 9" in height and/or the bed frame is tall, an 8-10" queen memory foam mattress is better suited than a 14" queen mattress. "On the other hand, if one already owns a low-profile 5 inch king size box spring, the couple can afford to go for a 12-14 inch memory foam mattress king" emphasizes Palmer.
