If your futon will be in a highly visible area where it needs to look nice, a coil-filled mattress does tend to lose its shape after a time. Foam-filled mattresses hold their shape better and look nicer in living rooms, guest rooms and other showcase areas of your home. Foam-filled mattresses are also better choices for those that use the futon primarily as a couch rather than as a bed. Additional style is achieved by selecting an appropriate cover for the room and accenting the futon with pillows to match.
Like Sealy, Simmons didn't lead the way in development of viscoelastic, however they now manufacture their own version and even claim to have developed the 'next generation' of this type of mattress. It is true that the biggest complaint against memory foam has been a 'sinking feeling' - therefore not being able to move freely whilst lying down - and that it tends to 'cook the sleeper' because body heat is not dissipated quickly. Simmons claim to have solved both of these problems using their version of foam called NxG Advanced Memory Foam. From what I've garnered there does seem to be a small reduction with the quicksand feeling many customers complain about. With the claim as to heat reduction, I can't say one way or the other. The one overriding opinion is that the Simmons ComforPedic mattress is cheaper than a Tempur-Pedic mattress, though a little softer, and offers good value for money.
Simmons makes the following models of ComforPedic mattresses: The Simmons ComforPedic Original - comes with a removable, professionally dry-cleanable velour and suede cover; The Simmons Nassau - comes with an additional layer of latex; the Simmons ComforPedic Natural is the next step up - you get a thicker layer or memory foam, an inner-layer of latex and the Simmons patented Edge Support System (some people do like a firm edge to their mattress though how this offers more support whilst sleeping is beyond me); the Simmons Mystere - comes with the thickest memory foam layer, otherwise it's the same as the ComforPedic Natural; the Simmons ComforPedic Nuvo - this is the most expensive and comes with the Simmons Nuvo bed and allows custom positioning of the mattress, which can be programmed to an array of positions.
Innerspring mattresses, which account for 90 percent of the 21 million beds sold last year in the United States, are pretty much all made the same way: Steel coils are surrounded by padding, and the whole mattress is wrapped in upholstery. The innerspring coil unit is the base of your mattress. It allows for even distribution of your body mass while you are lying down. The innerspring, often called the coil, is helixical in structure and as such should hold its strength and shape for many years. The coils are what offer support to your body where you need it most.
