The Perfect Marriage
We got the iComfort Oracle from Sleep Country. It's a memory foam mattress, with a twist: it's infused with gel to keep it both cool and extra supportive. To get on it, it's super firm, and then as the gel warms up from your body temperature, it starts to form to your contours. That process takes about 5 minutes.
Once it's warmed up a little, it's like sleeping on air. It holds your body snugly, and yet when you move, it's very quick to take its original shape back. You don't get stuck in a cavern for minutes at a time like with most tradition memory foams - it comfortably reforms without being "springy". My body just sits there in a cradle, seemingly suspended in mid-air, with miles to go before it reaches the mattress.
I can't recommend this highly enough or with any more enthusiasm. My chiropractor stressed that I needed to have a more firm sleeping experience, and since buying this my chronic back pain is all but gone. Even though I enjoy a softer feel to my bedding, this is the perfect marriage of comfort and support.
Plus, the mattress has a 25 year warranty. Who can beat that!?
