Comparison: Memory Foam Mattress vs Coir Mattress


Buying a mattress is a huge investment and a lot of thought goes behind purchasing one. There are so many options available in the market- coir, spring, memory foam, latex etc. Then, there is the dilemma of buying one from a store or online. In today’s life, we are sure you don’t have so much time to waste behind one thing, even though it is of utmost importance. We have the perfect solution for this. Here we are comparing two of the most common mattresses available- coir and memory foam. After reading this, you can decide for yourself! 

Coir mattress

The main material of a choir mattress is coconut fiber and the source of this fiber is coconut shell. It is then combined with a latex solution and used as the top and middle of the bed’s mattress. The coir mattress is completely natural and tends to absorb precipitation from nature as well. That is why it is ideal for absorbing ventilation and moisture. The choir mattress is also sturdy and provides support for your body.

Due to the natural ventilation, it provides a cooling surface and you can feel good sleeping. If you suffer from back pain, Choir is a great option. It also supports the alignment of your spine while maintaining its natural shape. 

Those who are allergic or sensitive to any kind of foam may find that this all-natural, non-toxic material a good addition to their bed. It is important to note that coir mattresses may also have additives: such as cotton, wool, or foam so it is important to do your research before buying to make sure those materials are safe. Choir mattresses are unhealthy, which is why they are often attracted to bed bugs and other pests. Also, it is not very durable and will collapse at short intervals. Last but not least, the comfort of the choir bed depends on the quality of the coconut fiber.

Memory Foam mattress

Mattress foam comes in many different forms: memory foam, polyurethane and latex. Memory foam is a type of polyurethane foam that has low strength, so it reacts when pressure is released and corrects slowly. It usually forms the surface layers of the mattress. Polyurethane comes in many different forms, making it useful in the middle and base layers of many foam and memory foam mattresses. Latex is a natural alternative to memory foam and polyurethane foam. It is manufactured from around a rubber tree and is processed to produce different densities to meet both soft and strong requirements. Like rubber, it is very responsible and has a bounce that some sleepers like and others hate. 

What are the differences between Coir Mattress vs. Foam Mattress?

The most important difference between these two kinds of mattresses is that one is naturally made and one is synthetically derived. Coir is made from coconut husks while memory foam is made of foam synthesised artificially. If we talk about significant foam mattresses such as the bonded, memory, and foam that is prepared using the synthetic material as the original product while coir mattress is created using the natural elements.

The life span of the material like good quality, high-density memory foam is much better than coir mattress. A good quality memory foam will give you eight to ten years if maintained and cleaned properly, while a coir mattress sags easily and breaks down. A coir mattress also attracts bugs and mites easily, and if not properly cleaned, can give trouble very soon. 

Firm comfort is what you can expect from the coir mattress because it has a soft texture, while foam mattress offers medium support. The downside of a coir bed is that it soon takes the shape of the body permanently and forms a dent in the bed. Memory foam has a fast recovery that way and is highly durable while also supporting your back. 

Memory foam, just like latex mattresses, doesn’t aid motion transfer. It is the best mattress if your partner is not a calm sleeper. Coir ones transfer motion very easily and you will feel it when your partner tosses and turns. 

In a hot season like summer, mattresses like foam are not able to perform well and offer hotness while coir ones are more relaxed even in summer. But, these days, any high-density memory foam mattress comes with a cooling gel layer to be as comfortable during the summers. Livpure’s memory foam mattresses have a one-inch cooling gel layer to support warm weather and keep you cool while you sleep.

Coir mattress is the pocket friendliest option when the question of mattress comes in your head, apart from locally made cotton ones. But because it is not so long-lasting, it might prove to be creating holes in your pocket because you will be buying more in a short period of time. While memory foam mattresses can be more expensive, it lasts for a long time and hence gives you value for money. Livpure gives you a 10-year warranty on mattresses so that you don’t have to think about your money anymore for a long long time. Our mattresses are also competitively priced in the market and provide you with the best comfort you need to have sweetest of the dreams. 

Lastly, if you are prone to allergies, memory foam might just be for you. Livpure’s memory foam mattresses are anti-allergenic for your benefit and comfort. Because of its make, it doesn’t attract bacterias and other allergens easily. On the other side, coir, even though it is naturally made, attracts bacterias, bugs and allergens quite easily.
