The layers of foams and fibres used in many mattresses today are designed to cradle your body, relieving pressure and providing comfort in addition to support.
After sleeping on your mattress for a couple of nights (even weeks), you will notice slight body impressions in the mattress surface. These are normal, and not structural defects, and should not be confused with sagging. In fact, body impressions of up to about 4cm can occur.
Proper care will help prevent sagging, and should include regular rotation of the mattress.
