Zinus infuses its memory foam mattresses with natural green tea extract to maintain freshness, and also with Castor Natural Seed Oil to naturally eliminate odors and bacteria.
The green tea and the added ActivCharcoal both work to keep odors under control without adding excess chemicals to your mattress.[toc]
How to pick the right thickness of mattress
Your body needs just the right mix of support and softness to make sure you feel refreshed after a night’s sleep. Without good support, your back and neck can easily move out of alignment. For this reason, side sleepers needs to be especially aware of their alignment.
FIX THIS TEXT IT’S AWFUL! As you get older, you’re also start to notice sore spots due to natural joint degeneration. anyone with AYou may have sore spots due to arthritis or joint degeneration, which will greatly affect your comfort. Your weight will also play a role in what you find to be hard or soft. 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. The 8″ mattresses are designed with back sleepers in mind. The 10-12″ mattress is designed for back/side sleepers. The 13″ mattress is designed for all-around sleeping, including for those who sleep on their stomach. The only limitation in these thicknesses is the extra-long twin only comes in the 8-inch option.
Layers of each Zinus Memory Foam Mattress
Regardless 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 the 12″ 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, finishing 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 because 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 in order 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 after time and could cause the heavier parts of your body to fall a little too far into the foam.
The density of the Zinus Green Tea is 3lbs, which means it’s not plush and not firm. This makes it the perfect middle-of-the-road mattress that suits many types of sleepers, and this also makes it the perfect choice for those who are new to the world of memory foam.
If you prefer your mattress to be firm, you probably shouldn’t choose the 12-inch option, but you’d be even better of with the Ultima Comfort mattress from the same company, which I’ve reviewed here.
Do Memory Foam Mattresses retain heat and make you feel hot?
The level of comfort depends on the sheets that you use.
Egyptian cotton or bamboo sheets will keep you cool in the Summer, and switching to flannel will keep you comfortable in the colder months.
What you need to know when buying a mattress online
To be able to deliver a bed in a box means it needs to be compressed and rolled to fit into the box for shipping.
The 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, these need up to 72 hours (3 days) to fully expand to their 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 recommended that the box be opened within a week of receiving it. Leaving it too long in the box can cause some minor decompression issues.10
