Although visco-elastic foam, also frequently referred to as "memory foam" was developed by scientists in the 1960's as an improvement on other methods of cushioning astronauts during launch, memory foam is often called "new" and "space age". In fact, some mattress stores have been selling memory foam mattresses for nearly a decade. Over time, the quality of visco-elastic beds has improved, though some quality myths still remain true.
Set a budget, so you know which mattress catagories you should be looking at. Mention your financial restrictions to the sales person so you are not wasting valuable time.
Rome is credited with the next big innovation in resting comfort around 200 B.C.E. when cloth sacks were stuffed with softer materials like wool. Rome's wealthy citizens enjoyed mattresses made of sacks filled with down feathers. By this time, beds were raised off the ground onto platforms. Sleeping off the ground avoids pests and drafts; and the ruling Roman class wanted nothing to do with either. Raising the bed off the ground also serves to make it easier to get into and out of bed, and supporting the mattress in a frame helped it retain its shape.
My advice is to certainly go ahead and buy a Stearns and Foster mattress, but save your self a lot of money and decline the offer of the boxspring.
