Is a foundation necessary for a memory foam mattress?

Also asked, do memory foam mattresses need a foundation?

No. However, they do need a foundation— a solid structure with a flat surface or slats less than 3 inches apart. You have infinite styles of foundations to choose from, but for the most cooling sleep experience, you'll want a base with slats.

Additionally, is a box spring necessary for a memory foam mattress? Yes. Memory foam mattresses require a box spring if you use a metal bed frame. The metal frame can properly distribute your body weight + the weight of the mattress but only when placed on top of a box spring.
