Why is Memory Foam so good?
We have a lot to thank NASA for. Memory Foam is one of their innovations dating back to the mid 1960's.
The basic premise for memory foam is that it will support and match any pressure (think person here) on it, yet will always slowly spring back to its original shape.
Memory foam was originally quite expensive but thankfully over time, it has become much more affordable. Its most common uses are mattresses and pillows, but also shoes and blankets.
What is a Green Tea Mattress?
Some bedding companies infuse their mattresses with Green Tea Extract to help maintain the overall freshness of the materials.
Zinus not only infuses its memory foam mattresses with natural green tea extract, but also with Castor Natural Seed Oil to naturally eliminate odors and bacteria.
The Green Tea extract and the added ActivCharcoal work together to keep odors under control without needing to add excess chemicals to the mattress.
How to pick the right thickness of mattress
To feel refreshed after a good night's sleep, your our body needs just the right mix of support and softness. Without good support, your back and neck can easily move out of alignment.
Side sleepers needs to be especially aware of their alignment and should also invest in a pillow suited to their sleeping style.
Bedding manufacturers make a range of mattresses to cover variations in sleeping styles and personal preferences in comfort.
Generally speaking, the thicker the mattress, the more plush and soft the mattress will be.
As a Guide:
The only limitation in these thicknesses with Zinus, is that their extra-long twin mattress only comes in an 8-inch option.
The Layers of a Zinus Memory Foam Mattress
Irrespective of the thickness, all Zinus Green Tea Foam mattresses are made up of several layers of fused foam.
The 12-inch mattress has four thick layers of foam, making it the most comfortable mattress for many people. It features a top layer of memory foam followed by a layer of comfort foam and a layer of high-density foam. It's finished off with an even higher-density support foam.
The 10 and 8-inch mattresses feature three layers. Two layers are high-density layers are combined into one layer as there isn’t enough room to accommodate an extra layer for airflow. This also makes them a tad 'less plush' than the 12-inch option.
Memory Foam and Base Support
You may wonder what the differences are between the different types of foams used to create this (or any) line of mattresses.
Take a moment to think about what you need to be comfortable for an extended period of time... Obviously, you don’t want something too hard – no one likes to sleep on a rock. Therefore, you wouldn’t want a mattress made only of high-density foam.
That being said, a soft mattress made of only memory foam would lose its shape over time and the heavier parts of your body could sink a little too far into the foam.
The density of the Zinus Green Tea is 3 pounds, which means it’s neither plush nor firm. This makes it the perfect middle-of-the-road mattress that suits most types of sleepers. It also makes it a great choice for those who are new to the world of memory foam.
If you do prefer your mattress to be firm, you will probably want to steer clear of the 12-inch option, and you may even be better off with the Zinus Ultima Comfort mattress.
Will a Memory Foam Mattress make you feel hot?
By 'hot' here, we don't mean the kind you most likely want to feel in bed. This is purely about your body temperature.
Your level of comfort will depend on the type of sheets you use. Sheets made from Egyptian cotton or bamboo will keep you cool in Summer. Switching these out to flannel sheets will keep you more comfortable in the colder months.

Buying a Bed in a Box
To be able to deliver a full size bed in a box means it needs to be compressed and rolled to fit into that box for shipping.
Its box will weigh around 74 pounds (or 33.5 kilos). I think my kids were between 6 to 10 years of age when they were around this weight and I had trouble lifting them then. I'm throwing this in here to give you an idea of just how heavy this box is... Get someone to help you lift it into place.
When you open the box, the mattress will need up to 72 hours (3 days) to fully expand to its correct shape. This time is also needed so any odor from the memory foam will dissipate completely before you start to use it. It's going to smell funny, that's just what happens. Plan for, and then give it this time to sort itself out.
Please note also, that Zinus recommend that the packing box be opened within a week of it being delivered to your door. Leaving it in the box too long can cause some minor decompression issues.
