The fifth listed mattress collection by Corsicana Bedding, Inc., is the Memory Foam Collection. True to form, like the prior-listed lines, the name of the collection identifies the key feature of its models, meaning that those of this collection are memory foam mattresses.
Frankly, Corsicana's Memory Foam Collection mattreses are hard to find and identify online. First of all, those with gel-infused memory foam as the key ingredient are in the next collection, Cool Reflections Gel. Then, most retailers carrying these are sparse in their online descriptions, omitting some of the details you may wish to consider. The best prospect of finding a Corsicana Memory Foam model is to locate and personally visit a retailer carrying Corsicana mattresses.
Among the Memory Foam Collection mattresses described online are the Blueberry Dreams and Raspberry Dreams Memory Foam Youth Mattresses, 8" Visco Memory Foam Mattress, and 10" Memory Foam Mattress.
All of Corsicana's memory foam mattresses have a high-density polyurethane foam support core, which occupies more than half the mattress height, even in the highest models. The reason for this is the feature of memory foam which makes it advantageous, its conformity. The very firm support core undergirds the memory foam comfort layer to prevent bottoming out, that sinking feeling. By making the support core thick enough, the polyurethane does have some give, even with its firmness, so it is not as hard as setting the memory foam directly on the floor. Understandably, the thicker memory foam mattresses are less firm than the thinner ones.
The advantages of memory foam in the Memory Foam Collection derive from its conformability. This relieves pressure points by making support even along the entire length of the body. This also helps promote good back posture. As an added benefit, memory foam dampens the transfer of motion from one side of the bed to the other. This reduces sleep disturbance when one partner moves.
One drawback of memory foam is that it tends to accumulate heat. However, current memory foam is made with an open-cell structure which allows air to circulate through the foam, taking away some of the heat.
The youth mattresses, Blueberry Dreams and Raspberry Dreams, are less expensive than the adult mattresses. They have removable, washable covers of a cotton terry-velour fabric. Covers of the other models are quilted with foams and/or fibers. The breathability of quilting helps cool the mattress. It also softens the feel without compromising support, an important consideration for adults, who usually weigh more than chilren and youth.
Memory foam mattresses need consistent support across the entire bottom. The best foundations for these are platforms. Also suitable are adjustable beds. European wood slats are acceptable if the slats are spaced closly enough. Not recommended are traditional box springs. Just a note: many retailers call their platform foundations "box springs" since the term has been commonly used for foundations for a long time.
Corsicana Bedding does not sell their mattresses directly to the public. Their website is designed primarily for use by retailers and distributors. However, several retailers carry Corsicana mattresses, including models from the Memory Foam Collection. Warranties vary by model and by retailer, but they are usually 5 or 10 years.
