What do you think of when you look at this picture—getting it on, or getting some ‘z’s?
According to this article from Yahoo! Finance, memory-foam mattresses, said to make the former more difficult and the latter easier, “are far and away the fastest-growing segment of the $4.6 billion wholesale market for U.S. mat-tresses. Memory foam’s market share has shot up from 14% to nearly 20% in just the past eight years. In other words, mattress shoppers are weighing the risk — bad sex — against the promise — good sleep — and are voting with their eyelids: They choose to snooze.” [Our bold.]
On the other hand, some folks seem to be rising to the challenge and learning to rock the mold-able, quicksand-like mattresses (pun obviously completely intended) in their own special way—or taking the action to other household surfaces. We love a good challenge, but it’s also nice to have a comfortable place to get some—and, ahem, we don’t mean ‘z’s.
