These online websites offer a look at many different quality design and construction so that you have a wide range of mattresses to compare.

One of the choices you can look at is called a sponge mattress.

A sponge mattress is considered to be a cooler mattress to sleep on because it is made up of many small air pockets that let air flow through the mattress. It is also coated with a fire retardant so that it is also safe to sleep on. This mattress material is also antimicrobial and resists mites. The latex foam if that is what makes up the bulk of this mattress is resilient and breathable.
