When shopping around for a hassle-free and comfortable kind of mattress to use as a spare when your house gets a little too crowded, what would you rather choose – an air mattress that may cause you to black out while blowing It up and end up leaking anyway, or a firm, robust and inviting foam mattress which may take up a little more space but is infinitely easier to deal with?
There’s practically no contest, except to determine which foam mattress to use. Let us help by suggesting one of Millard’s most popular.
Millard aims to bring the feeling of comfort and home with you wherever you choose to set up their folding mattress. With that goal in mind, they’ve tailored this mattress to be a reliable companion that will keep its original shape and fresh feel no matter where or how many times you set it up.
As long as you don’t mind sleeping closer to the floor than you did before, or don’t have serious back injuries that need accommodating, this mattress is for you. Children who enjoy sleepovers, avid nature goers who don’t want to forgo the comforts of home, and college students who want to keep costs as low as possible while putting every square inch of their small dorm rooms to good use are sure to feel a particular appreciation toward it, as will guests who’re about to get something much better than the lumpy couch they might have expected.
In true space-saving manner, the mattress is already folded up in a box you’d think is too slender to fit. After opening it up, you’ll discover that the mattress has been vacuum-sealed and that it needs some time to spring back into its original shape.
Another thing to notice is the bamboo cover which has been put on. There’s no need to remove it until it’s time to give it a wash as the cover adapts itself to the mattress whether it’s folded or not.
One thing you won't have to worry about when using Millard’s mattress is that uneasy feeling one gets when still sensing the floor through the padding. A 4-inch slab of high-quality foam is there to keep that from happening and provide a good buffer between the floor and yourself. Even side sleepers who tend to jab their pointy elbows into their beds shouldn’t feel contact with the floor through it, and that’s saying something. Of course, your mileage may vary with an increase in weight.
The foam might not be memory, but it has enough bounce and firmness to get back into shape as soon as you get up and stay that way even when used extensively. Being a twin-sized mattress, you should be able to stretch out on it as you please or even toss during the night and still not reach the edge.
Another thing to appreciate is how breezy the mattress is. The foam handles heat transfer very well, so you’ll never feel too hot from the mattress alone. Air passes through it effortlessly as well, so buildup of bad odors is reduced.
Lack of memory foam seems to be this mattress’ only major drawback, a smaller one being that the protective cover tends to rip along the zipper after some wear and tear. Since there’s no softer top layer which would support key areas of your body, the mattress is very firm. While younger and healthy people probably won't notice, prolonged use for sufferers of back pain may become an issue.
It’s as simple as can be really – for first time use, wait for it to regain its additional shape, fold out the three individual sections and place them in a horizontal position while making sure that they fit snugly against one another. The folded up mattress can be placed straight onto the floor, in the back of a van, or onto an appropriately sized bed frame.
As stated above, no memory foam can be problematic for some, so as an alternative that sports a state-of-the art layer of such foam on top of a sturdy base, you may want to consider FoldNGo’s 39-inch memory foam mattress.
It’s prudent to have a mattress to count on should you wish to ditch your own bed or suddenly need to accommodate extra company, and Millard’s proves to be a good solution for saving space and money alike in the long run.
Whether you use it exclusively for sleep, as a play area for the little ones or as a smart way of putting someone up, you can count on this mattress to provide a cool, padded, and roomy area you can quickly pack up again.
