Design & Construction
The chemistry between the top layers and the heat generated by our body is the concept behind the design of this mattress.
The top two layers are chosen selectively to serve the main purpose.
- Topmost layer offers unmatched body countering and
- Intermediary layer provides much needed pressure relief at critical points around shoulders and hip
The top layer looks firm initially, but when you sleep on the mattress for few minutes, the heat from your body opens up the layer’s cell structure, softens the surface and the layer itself starts conforming to your body shape.
Charcoal infused in top layer offers cooling effect as well. However, if you are looking for super cool surface, then I would suggest you to try additional gel toppers or cool touch sheets over the top surface. This mattress is all about offering the experience of sleeping on a memory foam mattress that provides excellent pressure/pain relief.
Layer Construction – 10 inch Best Price Mattress
Best Price has employed a three layer construction
Top layer – 3 inch memory foam
Intermediary layer – 2 inch super soft memory foam
Base layer – 5 inch high density foam
3 Inch Memory Foam Layer
The top layer has the tedious job of keeping the surface cool and moisture free. While gel mattresses have the job cut short as their top layer is cool gel infused. But for a memory foam mattress there is nothing like a gel layer.
Best Price has meticulously infused charcoal into the top layer that partially does the cooling job of a gel layer. However, apart from keeping the surface cool, charcoal has several additional benefits as well. It is hypoallergenic in nature, makes the surface anti-bacterial, absorbs moisture and eliminates odors.
This layer is what conforms to your body. As discussed in the introduction, it is the heat from our body that acts like a catalyst, opens up the cell structure and allows the foam to slowly counter to our body curves, especially around pressure points.
3 Inch Super Soft Memory Foam Layer
I really wonder how Best Price could include an intermediary layer while offering the mattress at such a low price. Because, Tuft & Needle, another budget mattress but in gel mattress segment offers a simple two layer design to keep the price in affordable range for their customers.
Anyways, in this Best Price 10 inch mattress, the secondary layer is what actually absorbs the body weight, distributes it evenly across the entire sleeping surface and in turn offers pressure relief around critical points.
Pressure/Pain Relief: How does this layer actually relieve pressure?
When you sleep on the floor, you can feel the hard surface really annoying you around your shoulders, back and hip. And when you sleep on a plush mattress, these critical points sink deep and develop aches by next morning.
Whereas, the advantage with memory foam mattresses is that they offer both plush feel around these critical points and at the same time they do not allow you to sink deep into the mattress.
The weight around hips or shoulders is on the higher side and obviously the top layer dips a bit deep and you might feel the sharp sink around these pressure points.
However, the secondary layer absorbs and distributes this sink equally, flattens the uneven surface and relieves pressure off the critical points. In a way, the shoulders and hips are resting on the soft memory foam but they are again not sinking deep.
High Density Base Layer
Every memory mattress has high density foam embedded as its base layer. All that varies is the size of this base layer.
This layer is what holds the mattress from sinking deep and avoids developing permanent indents in the long run. No matter you jump on the mattress from a height, sit or sleep on the edges the base layer is what prevents the mattress from bottoming out.
In this version of Best Price mattress, the base layer is made from 5 inch thick high density foam.
Cover – Comfort Poly Jacquard
The mattress comes with a zipped cover making it easy to remove and wash it. Made from poly jacquard material it is known for moisture wicking and quickly dries up the surface.
All mattresses have a precise value on a scale of 1 to 10 when it comes to measuring firmness. But Best Price mattress has two different values as the firmness of mattress changes owing to body heat.
Initially, the mattress looks relatively firm around 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. However, as you sleep on the mattress for few minutes, the top layer responds to body heat and foam’s cell structure opens up thus allowing body countering. Here, the firmness shall be around 6 on the scale.
On the whole, the mattress might look firm initially but as you sleep for few minutes the mattress top layer softens a bit and provides you with plush feel.
Experience of sleeping on a memory foam mattress is outstanding. However, owing to the closed cell structure of this type of foam, heat from our body is trapped inside. As hours pass by, mattress surface starts heating up.
Companies addressed this problem by infusing cooling gel into top layer and thereby calling such mattresses as gel memory foam mattresses. But they easily cost another $100 to $150 in excess.
But in case of Best Price Mattress, the company has altogether addressed the issue in a very interesting way. They infused charcoal into the top layer thereby reducing the heat factor significantly and more importantly keeping the price within affordable range.
The top layer foam has been meticulously selected whose cell structure loosens up as the mattress starts heating up. This is in fact an advantage whereby it offers enhanced air flow and thereby reduces surface heating.
In case you wish to enjoy an absolute cool surface then you can go with a gel topper or a cool touch pad on the top surface.
Memory foam mattresses are known for off gassing and Best Price mattress is no exception to that. Mild yet noticeable smell emanates as the mattress starts inflating to its full size when you start setting it up.
The only way to overcome this problem is that you better keep all the doors and windows open during the inflation time. If needed just keep the fans running as well for quick result.
Memory foam mattresses are compressed, rolled and shipped in a box for easy transportation. However, moving a fully inflated mattress is difficult and you should first select the place/room where you wish to set-up the mattress, open the box there and start the set-up process.
During inflation it is always advised not to use the mattress. Strictly do no test the mattress by pressing your hand, sitting or sleeping on it. Give it ample time to fully expand in every nook and corner. For long term durability, it is best advised to leave it for 48 hours to 72 hours until it inflates to its full size of 10 inches.
The mattress comes with a 10 year warranty.
CertiPUR-US Certified Mattress
Finally, as the mattress meets CertiPUR-US certification standards, you can be assured of the quality and non-hazardous material that went into the making of this mattress.
Best Price Mattress – 12 inch
As shown in the table in the very beginning, the 12 inch version has the same 3 layer construction like the 10 inch mattress.
In 12 inch version, the charcoal infused top layer has been reduced to 2.5 inches instead of 3 inches.
Whereas, the size of intermediary layer has been increased from 2 inches to 3 inches and the base layer has been increased from 5 inches to 6.5 inches.
The performance of all the three layers is the same like in the 10 inch version. However, this design is specifically tailored to best suit people who have above average built. Most of the mattresses that are 12 inch, 14 inch and 16 inch either have additional layers to offer enhanced comfort level to suit the needs of people on the heavier side.
