Buying a mattress can be a hugely stressful, exhaustive and painful buying experience. Nobody wants to have to become an expert in the bedding industry in order to buy their next mattress and yet, the entire industry is rife with marketing speak and, for the best part, a whole lot of garbage. So how do you determine fact from fiction, good from bad and right from wrong when it comes to buying your next pocket spring mattress? In this article we will look at what\u0027s inside a pocket spring mattress, the benefits and the downsides too, by the end of this you will know whether they are worthy of your money. What is a pocket sprung mattress? A pocket spring mattress is built using individual springs with each spring being sewn into its own little fabric pouch or "pocket", hence the name. The end result is that each spring can operate independently to it\u0027s neighbors meaning that each spring is able to move and support your body uniquely. We really like pocket spring mattresses as a supportive base because it allows the mattress to efficiently contour to your body relative to position and pressure meaning you get even and well distributed support across the entire mattress. Who makes pocket springs? Leggett \u0026 Platt is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of innerspring components operating in the U.K. and across Europe, and lists a huge swathe of the British bed manufacturing trade as customers. Recently Leggett \u0026 Platt acquired Kayfoam Woolfson, the Ireland based foam producer and bed manufacturer behind brands including Kaymed. This marks the company\u0027s first transition away from pocket spring production and into the greater mattress product as a whole. The Kaymed brand is popular among many online mattress retailers throughout the UK as a niche higher end mattress manufacturer.
