Which Mattress is Good Foam or Spring?

Investing in a healthy sleep routine is directly linked to the mattress of your choice. It may be a tad overwhelming due to the sea of information available and the various mattress options that one can buy. Oftentimes, it boils to a very binary question or should we say a debate. Which mattress is good, Foam or Spring? Now, this may be the question that is robbing you of your sweet night's sleep, literally. But the answer is not a binary one. Like many things in life, it depends.

What is a Foam Mattress?

The lore goes back to the mid-1960s Memory Foam, the MVP of the Foam Mattress, which was initially developed by NASA as airplane seats. The Foam Mattress, you know that one mattress that feels like it is almost hugging you as you sleep. That's right, the thing you sleep on is somehow related to outer space. Aside from this fact being downright cool, the reason for this development was to be used as protection against impact, but it turned out to be very comfortable and since has been branched off to various other applications like mattresses. Flo’s foam mattress has a plush, premium cover composed of a blend of cashmere and 3D Air-Flo™ technology that helps you sleep up to 5° cooler. With that brief introduction to the Foam Mattress out the way, the following are the benefits of the Foam mattress: 1)

Durable

The Foam Mattress is here for a good time and a long time. This does not mean that spring mattresses do not last very long, however, if you are looking for something for the long haul the foam mattress is your best bet. To further elaborate on the durability, foam mattresses often come with a longer warranty period, like our very own Ergo™ which not only has a 100 night sleep trial but also a 10-year warranty. 2)

More Motion, No Problem

This one is for restless sleepers. If you happen to have a sleeping partner who is experiencing an action movie while they sleep, a foam mattress is your best friend ensuring you are not the collateral damage. A foam mattress (memory foam mattress is best for this) ensures all the motion is seamlessly absorbed and thus ensures no disturbance to your partner’s sleep. Our Flo mattress is designed with MotionIsolation™ which ensures zero partner disturbance so you can toss and turn according to your pleasure and your partner won’t be disturbed at all! 3)

Posture

Has anyone told you that you are too beautiful to have such bad posture? No one really does that! Well, all jokes aside, a bad posture could be seriously hurting you in one too many ways. The amount of stress on your spine and joint coupled with the serious hit as it proportionally affects your confidence! Again you deserve better, dear friend. Here is where foam mattress plays an important role. To be specific memory foam. The Memory foam found in our Ergo™ mattress ensures that it not only responds accurately to your body weight but also molds itself around your body, ensuring you feel cradled and all warm and fuzzy.

It's Spring Time

The spring mattress can be simply defined as a mattress containing springs. These springs are also called coils. The spring mattress can be rightfully called the predecessor to the foam mattress. It is the classic old-school bouncy mattress that everyone sees in commercials. It is often the go-to image of what people think a mattress is. The origin of the spring mattress goes way back to a certain degree to the 15th century. The 15th century saw the use of spring coils for various functions. The 19th century can be concluded as the origin of the spring mattress as these coils were used in carriages and making furniture. The following are the benefits of the old-school spring mattress:

Familiarity

What is old is gold. We may not agree with this statement but it does convey a very strong message. People trust the feeling of familiarity, and the spring mattress is all about feeling familiar. Due to the spring mattress being around for more time, it has a very strong recall value. The first cliche mattress idea that comes into anyone's head is about the spring mattress. People tend to stick to things they are familiar with. As a result, people opt for the spring mattress.

Price and Availability

The spring mattress is available easily. You can find a spring mattress in your locality without breaking a sweat. Due to this sheer convenience, people do not tend to bat an eye when they are purchasing a mattress. This can also be linked to a lack of awareness of the different alternatives that are present or that the market has to offer.

The Bounce

Oh, we had to mention this one. Because of its build, the spring mattress ‘Offers the bounciest of bounces’. Which at times is a deciding factor for some people, and we are not judging. This however may not be ideal for your joints in the long term but overlooking that hurdle you are good to go. Even though our Flo mattress is large and bouncy, there are no chances of it bending or sagging down because they are designed with ShapeShield™.

Conclusion

Well, we hope that sort of answers the burning question. In all fairness, it does come down to factors like personal preferences, financial conditions, physical conditions, etc. The end goal is to pick a mattress that ensures an optimal night's sleep. The decision to make a purchase should be an educated one and should be done keeping in mind your quality of sleep. Now, we just need one answer, when are you buying a foam mattress from Flo mattress?

5 REASONS WHY ORTHOPEDIC MATTRESSES ARE SO POPULAR: BY FLO

Do you know what an orthopedic mattress is?


In the simplest of terms, an orthopedic mattress is the best friend for your back
and joints. Think about the one person who is always supporting you no matter
how bad the circumstances are. The orthopedic mattress is this VIP person
who has your back, like literally!

The term orthopedic mattress was coined in 1950 after a special mattress was
designed and backed by various studies. Those studies suggested that the
mattress could prevent morning back pain. In the current times, an orthopedic
mattress is a type of mattress that offers support to the joint and the spine. What
modern times we live in!

An orthopedic mattress is typically recommended for the aged mostly above
the age of 60, people who sleep with back pain, people who have posture issues
causing pressure on the back, and people with active lifestyles looking to
recover from injury and fatigue.

As stated by the above lines, an orthopedic mattress is a unicorn. Something
that seems too good to be true, but here we are, serving you an orthopedic
mattress! Introducing Flo’s very own Ortho™ mattress which is your back’s
new best friend. Our Ortho™ mattress is the new kid on the block. Gone are
the days when you had to settle for a standard mattress.

Here are 5 solid reasons why orthopedic mattresses are so
popular

1) Orthopedic mattress provides back support with PainRelease™

 As stated in the origin story of the orthopedic mattress, it was designed with the
intention to relieve pressure from the joint and to provide valuable support. A
lot of standard mattresses compromise on the quality of the foam they use. Flo
Ortho™ mattress’s Pain Release™ technology is designed to bring relief to
your back by giving you the right support and alignment. 

Other mattresses cannot provide support to the joints and the spine. Ortho™
mattress has been designed with the intention to bring relief to the spine and
joints. It has a high resilience foam top layer that is designed to provide firm
orthopedic support to the lower back, thus relieving that dreadful lower back
pain. 

2) Orthopedic mattress does not sink due to Responsive™ Foam

A lot of standard mattresses sink randomly and this causes uneven weight
distribution and this results in pressure that is being felt on the joints. Flo Ortho™ mattress solves this problem with our Flo Responsive™ foam. This foam is the foundation of the mattress and its main function is to ensure that no
body part sinks more than it should. That means, the more pressure is put on the
mattress, the more support is offered by the mattress thus avoiding the uneven
weight distribution. 

This Ortho™ mattress is reversible and can also be used on either side. On a scale of 1 to 10, where one is soft as cotton and 10 is a little harder, the top layers is 7/10 whereas the base layer is 8/10.

This mattress is also created with Motion Isolation™ which ensures zero partner
disturbance. It means you can enjoy your peaceful sleep while your partner can
toss and turn all they want. 

3) Orthopedic mattress helps in spine alignment

The term backbone is often used to show reliance and stability to the subject at
hand. Being out of alignment causes bad posture and results in the person
hunching over. This, in some cases, not only causes a lot of pain but also affects
the confidence of the person. Flo orthopedic mattress is paired with Shape
Shield™ which ensures that the mattress doesn’t bend or sag over several years,
giving quality to your sleep and relief to your spine. Thus preserving your spine
health and bringing back that lost confidence. 

4) Orthopedic mattress helps you sleep 5º cooler

The Ortho™ mattress however is the closest thing to sleeping on clouds. They are paired with 3D Air-Flo™ technology that helps you sleep up to 5°

cooler. Keeping in mind that sleep hygiene is almost as important as how many
hours you sleep, having a good mattress is very important.

A lot of standard mattresses are made from non-breathable material that causes
rashes and uneasiness. To add to the discomfort they are not at all wash
friendly. Imagine trying to sleep on a stained mattress (yikes). 

Not only is it made out of 100% inner cotton covers making it easy to wash, but
to add to sleep hygiene the Ortho™ mattress also comes with a soft high-quality
cashmere fabric cover. This cover is treated with aloe vera gel, this ensures that
your skin is hydrated and looks youthful. In short, great sleep plus great
skincare! What a steal!


5) Flo's Ortho™ mattress comes with a 100-day free sleep trial and a
10-year warranty

Assurance is the ability to believe that you have control over the outcome. A lot
of things in life have no assurance, in cases where assurance is given it is given
with a lack of confidence. But this is not the case with Flo mattress! The
Ortho™ mattress is backed with such assurance. Not only do we offer a 100-
day sleep trial but also if not satisfied with the mattress a full refund will be
provided to the customers. To top this off, the Ortho™ mattress also comes with
a 10-year warranty. Just another reason why orthopedic mattresses are so
popular, a standard mattress does not come with a free 100 sleep trial or even
better a decade of warranty.
 
Our orthopedic mattress gets delivered right to your doorstep in a matter of
days. Expect your back’s best friend "The Ortho™" to arrive between 3 to 7
business days at no extra charge. With over 3,000 happy reviews you can rest

switching from a standard mattress to an orthopedic mattress.
 
The best orthopedic mattresses in India, the Ortho™ mattress is available in

The above reasons state the obvious why orthopedic mattresses are so popular.
They provide support to your joints and the spine, they are made from higher
quality skin-friendly material and they can be bought easily and have
testimonies and warranties to vouch for their quality. So the only question that
remains is, when are you making the switch?
