When you go to a mattress store don't be shy about testing out the mattress. A good idea is to go wearing clothes that you feel extremely comfortable in. Then, lie down on the mattress to see how it feels. Spend at least ten minutes lying on top of it. A good tip to check if the bed you are lying on is too soft, too hard, or just right is to lie on your back, placing your hand in the small of your back and then trying to move it about. If it moves too easily, the bed may be too hard for you; if it's a struggle to move your hand, then the bed is too soft. If you can move your hand with just a little resistance, the bed may be just right for you.
Foam technology was actually developed by NASA back in the 70's and after they discarded the concept the medical industry took an interest in it. The thought was the foam cushioning would help prevent pressure sores amongst hospital patients. Eventually as the foam technology improved and overcame obstacles with durability and cracking it led to the production of household mattresses with foam tops similar to that found on a king pillow top mattress in the 90's. Today you can buy a whole king foam mattress that utilizes the latest technology in foam.
Prior to the 1940's, mattresses were still crudely constructed and many poorer people did not own proper mattresses, but still slept on roughly made ones. As America began to climb out of the Great Depression, the country found itself with a surplus of cotton. Having a surplus was driving down the price that farmers could get for cotton. This situation worked against economic recovery, so the United States government stepped in. In 1940, the government launched a campaign teaching people how to make mattresses at home. It even provided the cotton, the ticking, and the sewing needles needed to make mattresses. Government agents went out and taught people how to make the mattresses, and encouraged them to teach their friends and neighbors. The results of this campaign were that cotton prices rose, the cotton surplus was used, and even the very poor had soft beds and new skills.
However, many people don't realize that this same insulating capability makes wool a great material for mattress toppers on summer beds as well. The air pockets created by the wool allow air to circulate around the sleeper, helping to keep them cool on the hottest summer nights.
