Layer Construction - Live and Sleep 10 Inch Mattress
Top 2.5 inch Memory Foam Layer
As the mattress carries a simple two layer construction, this top layer is all about offering body contouring and pressure relief. It is relatively soft and gives you the luxurious feel of sleeping on a memory foam mattress.
The sinking of this layer is again directly proportional to your weight. However, no matter whether you are average or above average built, the mattress won’t sink for more than the thickness of this layer, i.e. 2.5 inches, as the base layer holds you from further sinking.
Come what may, you won’t get the feeling of getting stuck in this layer, no matter in which every position you sleep. As mentioned above, it is perfect for side, stomach and back sleepers alike.
Bottom 7.5 inch High Density Polyurethane Foam Layer
Like in all mattresses, the base layer is made from high density foam. However, the thickness of this layer in Live and Sleep 10 inch version is 7.5 inches, which is relatively on the higher side.
This layer is what determines the lifespan of a mattress. The moment you start sinking too deep into the mattress is when you have to realize that the mattress is out of date. But with the thickness being on the higher side, this Live and Sleep version is sure to sustain for many years. And maybe this is why the company has come up with 20 year warranty period.
Made from flex thread soft fabric, the cover is removable making it easy for washing.
The overall firmness I believe is around 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 for average weight individuals. I am above average built and for me the firmness is around 6.5. And for people on really heavier side, this factor should at the best stand at 6.
And for everyone weighing in average range, the sinking should be within the top memory foam layer but individuals on really heavier side might sink by say 2 inches to 2.5 inches, but never too deep into the base high density layer.
Memory foam material returning to normal shape is relatively slower when compared to gel or latex foams. And this is the precise reason why memory foam mattresses stick to simple two layer construction so as to minimize the bounce back time.
Live and Sleep mattress, with just a two layer construction and a simple 2.5 inch comfort memory foam layer on top, lessens the bounce back time and offers ideal level of motion isolation.
As you roll, get in and out of the bed, the top layer bounces back to normalcy thus not disturbing those sleeping next to you.
Same story with every memory foam mattress when it comes to edge support. Almost all of them are plush on the sides but better are the mattresses that somehow offer minimum firmness on the edges, at least allowing you to sleep without making you slide downwards.
Thanks to the 7.5 inch thick high density base layer, Live and Sleep 10 inch version offers better edge support than most others in this category. You can comfortably sleep on the sides without worrying about falling down.
But if somebody intentionally sits and pushes themselves down to prove the mattress wrong, then they would most probably not find any other mattress that can convince them of edge support, at least in memory foam category and at this price.
Made in USA and adhering to all rules of the game laid down by safety regulations, Live and Sleep is CertiPUR-US certified. Free from harmful chemicals, safety qualified materials are used in manufacturing this mattress.
First thing first, Live and Sleep Resort Classic mattress is another budget memory foam mattress that perfectly offers comfort, pain relief and body countering like all leading best sellers in memory foam mattress category.
But what makes the difference is the 30 day trial period and 20 year warranty. Apart from these two, it also offers a free memory foam pillow.
Even if we leave aside all freebies and warranties, I personally commend its two layer construction and the overall firmness (between 6 to 6.5) as the main factors that help this mattress outperform others in this category.
