Body Impressions
body impressions

The permanent impressions in a mattress that often develop after repeated use over time. It is called a body impression as it forms in the shape of your body with the deeper impressions usually under the heavier areas. With natural fibers used in a comfort layer, it is an expected and desirable process as it is part of how these materials form a cradle and relieve pressure. With foam materials it indicates foam breakdown and the permanent loss of some of the foam's properties. Synthetic fibers like polyester used in comfort and quilting layers can also make a significant contribution to body impressions as they compact and become firmer over time.
