To ensure you’re sleeping well, it’s important to find the right material that fits your profile. Generally speaking, if you sleep on your side, require pressure point relief, or just enjoy the sensation of sinking into bed, you should consider a foam mattress. If you’re in the market for a three-quarter foam mattress, you should know that there are various different types of foams available on the market.

Find The Right Foam That Works for You

On the market, you’ll typically find two main types of foam mattresses: memory foam and latex foam.

Memory Foam Mattresses are Known for Their Durability

Three quarter memory foam mattresses are known for their durability and longevity. High-quality memory foam retains its shape and performance over the years. Memory foam helps your investment in a mattress for your antique three quarter bed stand the test of time.

Memory foam three quarter beds are a practical choice for your antique bed.

Foam Isn’t Hard on Wooden Slats

Antique ¾ bed frames often feature wooden slats as part of their support system. Memory foam mattresses are well-suited for such frames because they can contour to the surface of the slats. Foam can distribute weight evenly across the entire mattress. This not only provides excellent support but also prolongs the life of both the mattress and the frame.

The ability of memory foam to adapt to various support structures makes it an ideal choice for antique frames with slats.

The Aesthetic of an Antique Frame with the Comfort of Foam

How Important is Layering & Firmness?

Extra layers are a marketing gimmick and, in most cases, consumers won’t be able to feel the additional layers. Our three quarter beds don’t feature extra, unnecessary layers because it would just lead to us charging you more. Instead, we’re focusing on the quality of the foam in our three quarter beds. Our foams, regardless of which you choose, are expertly designed to feel premium and relaxing, while providing quality airflow.

Firmness is just as important as deciding the right material for your three quarter mattress. Simply put, firmness operates on 1 to 10 level scale, with 1 being the softest, with 10 being the firmest. Extreme ends of the spectrum provide negative results in most cases. With a firmness of 1, you’ll sink deep into the bed, struggling to get out. You’ll receive little to no support, which will put extreme pressure on your joints. 10 is akin to be rock hard, too firm to the point of no comfort or relaxation.

Most three quarter foam mattress sleepers prefer anywhere between 5 to 7 firmness, which marries stability and support with the relaxing sensation of sinking – it’s the best of both worlds. Both or the Dream Nº 5 and 7 three quarter foam mattresses feature 5 to 7 firmness. Looking for something with more support and firmness? We’ve got your back.
