Sleep Number vs Herobed

A great night’s sleep is the best way to recharge so you can conquer each new day. If you’re not sleeping your best, you’re not doing your best.

Can’t remember the last time you had a restful night? It may be time to look into getting a new mattress. There are quite a few companies that claim all-foam is best, but while memory foam is comfortable and provides great pressure point relief, it often restricts movement, lacks the desired amount of bounce, and has a tendency to sleep hot. According to a major university study,

Innerspring mattresses sleep up to 28% cooler than all-foam mattresses, allowing for a more desirable sleep experience. And considering that 68% of consumers prefer the bounce achieved by springs for intimacy purposes, all-foam beds might not be best for couples.

In the past few years, research has shown that building mattresses out of memory foam AND micro coils create the ideal combination for sleep as well as for intimacy purposes. Micro coils have air channels and chambers, allowing perspiration and body heat to escape much better than all-foam beds. So with a hybrid mattress built with memory foam and micro coils, you get the comfort benefits of memory foam and the support, ventilation, and bounce off springs.

As you shop for a new mattress, start to think about your preference for a bed made of all-foam, all-springs, or both, and what you are willing to pay for a great night’s sleep. We’ll compare six of the most popular mattresses on the market so you can decide on a model that will satisfy your needs.

We say, don’t pay more, for less, but don’t take our word on it, read on.

Herobed vs Tempur-Pedic

Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Flex Supreme Breeze

Sleep Number beds have 4 layers of material:

  1. A foundation

The Box

Mattress Comparison Conclusion

With so many options, choosing the right mattress can be stressful. You could be talked into spending $4,000 for a mattress in stores with no guarantee of getting your money back if you don’t like it. And while Sealy Cocoon allows you to skip the hassle of dealing with a salesperson, an all-foam mattress may not provide the bounce and support you could get in a mattress with micro coils.

For a comparably low price, you can get the comfort, and long-lasting guarantee of Herobed shipped straight to your door. With a 100-day trial period promising a full refund, you really have nothing to lose by giving it a try!
