Before sleeping on the iComfort Blue Touch 500 Plush mattress, I would have told you that I would NEVER, EVER like sleeping on a memory foam style mattress and that I prefer a traditional inner-spring mattress, hands down. Well, now my opinion was changed three weeks ago when we got this bed! I still like the feel of an inner-spring mattress, but I would never rule out a memory foam style mattress ever again. Here's why you shouldn't rule this mattress out, either.
First, I have always heard that memory foam mattresses make you feel hot because the hold in your body heat. But due to Serta's layer of EverCool Fuze Memory foam, along with their TempActive fabric covering, I felt no warmer sleeping on this mattress than I have on our traditional pillow top inner-spring mattress. Awesome!
Second, I may be weird, but I like the springy feeling that, well, springs give a mattress. Perhaps it's because I've always had a mattress with springs. However, I was intrigued with this mattress because I've heard that memory foam mattresses reduce the feeling of the movement of a sleeping partner. And my husband rolls around a lot and usually gets out of bed once or twice during the night. In fact, sometimes he bounces the whole bed with his movements. On this mattress, I can barely feel him move. I love this because I get better sleep without feeling his movements. He in turn also liked that he cannot feel me get up out of bed in the morning, because I get up earlier than he does.
Third, both me and my husband both like a very plush, mattress. Our old mattress is an extremely plush pillow top mattress that we both love, but has seen it's better days. However, we have both been wary of memory foam mattresses because we've heard that although they support well, they have a firm feel. We had no idea there were plush memory foam mattresses until the iComfort Blue Touch 500 Plush entered our lives. It's plush. You sink in, yet you feel totally supported in just the right areas, but don't feel any pressure points like on your shoulders or hips like some inner-spring mattress can give. How can this be? Well, it's Serta's combination of three layers of different types of memory foam. The plushest being the top layer of EverCool Supreme memory foam that makes the mattress feel soft, yet the mattress still cradles your body in all the right places because of the other two layers of memory foam- the TempActive Gel memory foam and the EverCool Fuze memory foam.
One more impressive thing about this mattress, and then I am done. I promise! What's impressive is how much lighter in weight this mattress is than a traditional inner spring mattress. I moved the mattress into our bedroom BY MYSELF. Whoa!
I am highly impressed with this mattress. I love being pleasantly surprised and I would definitely recommend the iComfort Blue Touch 500 Plush to anyone who is looking for a plush, soft mattress that still supports you where you need it, without pressure on your joints. Even if you prefer inner-spring mattresses, like I did, do give this mattress a try. You might be just as surprised as I was.
This queen mattress is going in our guest room, so our family and friends can fall in love with it...while we get a King for our bedroom!
