So you’re shopping for a new mattress and you’re not sure where to start? You’ve heard a lot about memory foam & tempurpedic mattress but there’s this new upcoming latex mattress too, which one should you get? Don’t worry we hear it all the time. Hopefully in this 6 part series we can help show you some of the differences, pros & cons between latex mattresses and memory foam mattress.
Part 5: Motion Isolation
Motion isolation refers to how well a bed keeps motion on the bed localized or how much someone else sleeping in the same bed can feel you toss and turn. Memory foam typically does very well in keeping the motion isolated because of the “hugging” sensation it gives you as you sleep where as latex’s springy nature seems to transfer motion a little bit more, however still not as much as coiled beds that are not individually pocketed.
