Couches are meant for sitting and mattresses are meant for sleeping. A couch is usually made of a material like heavy polyurethane foam with support mechanisms. It is designed keeping in mind that heavy weights will be forced on a single spot for a longer while; it is made to resist those weights and the impressions they leave behind. Thus, sleeping on the couch provides less support and alignment when the weight is lying across a larger area.

Well now that you're clear on what a fainting couch is, wouldn't you like to know a little about its history? Let's get to it then. Women in England in the 19th century were probably the first users of fainting couches. Apparently, these couches were designed in this particular fashion because most contemporary upper class women in England wore corsets. Corsets tend to put a lot of pressure on the upper body of the wearer and as a result, the circulation of blood was restricted, especially when the women climbed up or down staircases. Hence, these specially designed couches were placed at the foot or head of staircases, for the women to rest as soon as they climbed up or down. Women felt faint due to the restriction of blood flow and sat on the couches until they felt better. That's how they derived the name 'fainting couches'. They also came to be known as Victorian fainting couches. Quite interesting, don't you think?
