If you are not sure what memory foam is, then to make it the most simple for you, it is material that contours to your body and remembers your shape to give you a better quality rest, lounge time or sleep. This is why the foam is called “memory” because it keeps the memory of your shape even after you have gotten up off of the pillow.

Memory foam is easy to test to see the quality you can simply place the palm of your hand flat against the foam and remove it to see your hand print remaining in the mattress or pillow. With this you also see that you can move around a lot on the mattress without disturbing your partner, or else knocking something off the other side of the bed.

Some users do report that the memory foam can, however, be a very hot option for sleeping on as it is a solid block of foam. Though many memory foam’s today are being made with shredded or ventilated memory foam that allow for better air flow throughout the pillow.

There are many pillows and mattresses on the market that are memory foam and are not marketed as tempurpedic but fill the same requirements. Many of these pillows are also named ergonomic now as they are objects that conform to your body rather than making your body alter unnaturally and uncomfortably; ergonomic is better for your overall health.

High quality and “name brand” products generally come with a rather large price tag attached to them because the demand is high and the reputation can ask for such a great price. While tempurpedic can be an expensive product, not all tempurpedic pillows have to come with an outrageous price.
