Are memory foam mattresses good?

Memory foam beds are great for providing pressure relief and alleviating back and joint pain, especially to those who like to sleep on their side. The soft material moulds around your body to cushion and soothe the hips and shoulders, which are key pressure points when side sleeping, so memory foam is often found in the best mattresses for side sleepers

However, some sleepers - such as back and stomach sleepers - may find that memory foam isn't firm enough to support them and will want to opt for a hybrid mattress instead. Memory foam also has a tendency to trap heat, so hot sleepers should look for memory foam mattresses that have cooling properties to offset any overheating.
