The next thing you have to decide on is the density of the foam, based on your preferred sleep position. The general rule of thumb is that the higher the density of the foam, the firmer the mattress is. If you are a back sleeper, you should get a thicker mattress. If you prefer to sleep on your side, go for a less dense mattress.
Foam mattresses often come in two to five pound densities. Look for one that has at least three inches of density, as this is more likely to have enough material to cushion and support your body. You can get away with a two inch layer of foam on your mattress, but you would be missing on a more comfortable feel if you insist on getting one.

Buyers Guide – How to Choose the Best Gel Mattress for You
You might get confused with all the options that you have in shopping for a mattress. After all, most of the mattress models seem to have the same specifications that you may have a hard time choosing just one mattress. So how do you select the right gel foam mattress for you?
Most memory foam mattresses have a thickness that range from eight to 13 inches. If you’re replacing your current mattress, it may be wise to opt for a new mattress that has the same thickness as the one you intend to replace.
You’d also have to consider your budget. If you don’t have a big budget, you may settle for a thinner mattress which is obviously going to be less expensive. However, the problem is that a thinner mattress provides less support. On the other hand, a thicker mattress gives more comfort but you obviously have to pay more.
