Most people looking to buy have probably asked themselves this question before. In its simplest and common form, most memory foam mattresses for sale are generally manufactured using viscoelastic foam and  consists of a three layered design.

The topmost “Comfort Layer” is made of special materials which molds to the body shape when it comes into contact with body heat. By molding to the body shape, the downward pressure and stress on joints created by gravity are eliminated. When the foam cools down, or if parts of the body are not in contact, the surface will turn to its original horizontal form.

 

The second platform is usually referred to as the “Support Layer.” It’s designed to be more rigid so the overall shape of the mattress is retained, and offers support to the softer and thinner comfort layer.

 

Then you have the “Base Layer” which is the bottom platform of the design. The base supports the top two and is usually the thickest and most rigid of the three. Each layer mentioned can have sub-layers depending on manufacturer, design and innovation, but generally that’s how it is made up.
