It is interesting that the memory foam, which is one of the most preferred materials for mattresses was originally not intended for mattresses but actually for spacecraft chairs to absorb shock. Well, that is a fact I just had to share before we get into the top 10 best rated memory foam mattresses in 2021 reviews.
Choosing the best can be a lot of a hassle as we found out since it involves researching as well as trying out just about every mattress that claims to be the best. Lucky for you we have done all that and we present to you only the real best.
But before we get to that you may want to know what to look out for when making a choice:
- Firmness to support your weight
- Ability to control temperature
- Comfort especially for your body type and preferred sleeping position
- The effect it has on your spine
These are just some of the considerations but there are many more you may take in as well.
Top-Rated Memory foam mattresses list:

The green tea is a special addition to the mattress to ensure it will remain fresh all the time.

If you are the type who sleeps on the side or stomach, this is a mattress you will enjoy sleeping on.
Many of the people who recommend this mattress note that it is reasonably priced despite its great quality, it has the ability to remain fresh and it provides the right amount of support for the spine.
