Signature Sleep 12-inch Memory Foam Mattress Review
Signature Sleep 12-inch memory foam mattress, also named Signature Sleep Memoir 12, is one of few of mattresses online using 4 inches high density foam. Its thick top layer reduces back aches effectively and ensures longer years of use. It’s also a mattress made in China. It’s a problem for some people but not for me. These days, some US made mattresses don’t perform well as advertised, but they are still within a high price range. As a regular working guy, I can’t accept such low price/comfort deal.
Features of Signature Sleep Memoir 12
As it’s not listed, many customers didn’t get the warranty information on Amazon or Walmart. I went to Sleep Signature Sleep official site and found the warranty of the mattress. The company says “This product has a 1 year limited warranty from the date of purchase against defects in workmanship and/or materials.” You can visit the page for more warranty details: http://www.signaturesleep.com/eng/warranty.
How does it feel?
Owners have a common feeling about the Memoir 12, which is found on all memory foam mattresses. Initially, you may feel it’s a bit stiff when you first lay on. But you will experience the process of mattress getting soft. Usually, it happens in less than 5 minutes. Once the mattress finds your body shape, you feel sinking into it. That’s why many owners mentioned it was firm yet comfortable.
Rotate it periodically
Owners of Memoir 12 are recommended by manufacturers to do it. It’s not only for this mattress; it’s for spring, latex, memory foam or other types of bed. Rotating bed regularly is one of good ways in maintaining a bed. It prolongs longevity of the bed. If you have a spring, flipping it periodically is also necessary.
Density means most
This Signature Sleep 12 inch bed is using 4 inches, 4 pound, 9 ILD foam as the top layer. You may not know what all numbers mean. I did a lot of research on mattress and give you some hints. The comfort layer of Sleep Innovations 12 inch is 2.5 inch 3lb foam; LUCID 12 inch’s is 2 inch foam with unknown density. These two are primary memory foam mattress brands online.
Thickness and density of foam have much to do with durability and longevity. Thicker and denser foam holds to its shape better. An owner weighing 220lb reported that he didn’t notice impression or sloping area on the bed after got up in the morning. The mattress recovered to its original shape quickly.
Warm up? Yes, but…
Memoir 12 doesn’t use cooling technology like gel infusing or ventilated foam. But it doesn’t mean it’s an overly warm mattress. It warms up a little bit where you are laying in an acceptable level. At a normal room condition, it’s not bad. But if you expect it keeps doing well in the hot days with AC off, you will feel an obvious increase in temperature where you are laying. It’s recommended to get a cool topper or gel lining.
Where to buy Signature Sleep 12-inch memory foam mattress
As of this date, this mattress is available on Amazon and Walmart and both are offering free shipping. I checked the price history of queen size and it climbed over $410. Compared to the past price, the current price is really a steal.
