Why use Gel memory foam and airflow layer

Simple, just for cooling sleeping experience. Memory foam can provide you good support, contour, and comfort. A lot of people choose memory foam mattress instead of their old innerspring mattress as a primary bed or guest bed.

But one of the biggest problems of memory foam mattress is it will bring you extra heat, the thicker, the heater.

To fix this problem, the industry now has two solutions, one is to use gel memory foam to instead traditional memory foam. This will bring you a cooling sleeping experience.

But this is not enough, you may feel cool firstly, but as time goes on you may still feel hot. How to fix this?

The second solution is to use extra airflow layers. This will make your mattress breathable, new fresh cool air in and hot air out, this worked together with gel layer to make sure a cooling night.

Brentwood home bamboo gel is one of the best cooling memory foam mattresses we can get on the market.

Brentwood home S-Bed memory foam mattress review

S-Bed is the upgrade of Bamboo Gel. The bamboo gel is good, it can provide you good comfortable, cooling sleeping experience, but S-Bed is even better.

The biggest difference between them are structure, S-Bed has an extra 2-inch organic latex layer, which can provide you extra bounce back feeling.

Compared with traditional innerspring mattress, the memory foam mattress is more comfortable, and you won’t impact your partners when any movement from your side. This is his advantage.

But if we talk about elasticity, innerspring did a better job. So if you are looking for the best mattress for sex, Bamboo gel may not your best choice. But with the help of the latex layer, S-Bed surely does.

  • The top layer is 2 inches of certified organic latex comfort layer, as we mentioned before, this upgrade from Bamboo gel series. Which will provide you extra support, comfort and bounce back feeling when making love.
  • The second layer is a 2-inch gel memory foam layer. This special gel layer is to provide you cooling sleeping experience when you lay on.
  • The third layer is the 2-inch ventilated airflow layer. This is the same as a Bamboo gel, work together with gel memory foam layer. A breathable mattress can make sure cooling sleeping experience no matter how long you stay on it.
  • The fourth layer is the 5-inch therapeutic support base layer.

For side sleepers, we suggest you pick up a plush model, which can make provide better support on your hips and shoulders.

For back/stomach sleepers, we suggest you pick up more firm model, you can pick both medium or firm, just based on your behavior.

For the one without fixed sleeping positions, we suggest you pick up the medium model. This is also most people’s choice.

For the one has back pain, we would suggest you pick up a firm model, good support is the first concern, doctors may give you similar instructions, right?
