The Annison Pocket Sprung Mattress is part of the larger collection from Team GB. This is a range of mattresses that have been endorsed by both Team GB and Paralympics GB who are part of the new Dreams sleep endorsement. The mattress itself is created by The Dreams Workshop, an internally led brand that is sold exclusively through Dreams vast array of storefronts throughout the country and has garnered impressive praise from critics.
The Annison Mattress is probably one of the most suitable mattresses for the general public on average. While every person's personal preference profile is different, the specs of this mattress are generally steered toward the typical wants and needs of those looking for a mid-range mattress.
Firstly, this mattress is a medium firmness meaning that it will be suitable for most people of average BMI, those with a lower BMI should look toward a softer mattress while those with a higher BMI should perhaps consider a firmer mattress. Regardless though, medium firmness mattresses are very much a catch-all that most people can sleep on comfortably.
Secondly, this mattress comes with memory foam topper and filling which is the hot button go-to right now for those looking for the ultimate comfort. My personal preference leans more toward latex but don’t let that put you off this mattress, The Annison Pocket Sprung Mattress does a great job of combining the most desirable filling (memory foam) with the most desirable spring structure (pocket spring). The 800 pocket springs are of good quality and contour better to your body than traditional open coil spring systems.
The mattress is well reviewed too, amassing an impressive 3000 reviews and making it one of the top mattresses available through the retailer. Whats more, 96% of customers would recommend the mattress, making it an absolute best buy. Customers were particularly impressed with the good balance between memory foam and support and that a good nights sleep results in the user feeling like they are "sleeping on a cloud". Great praise for a great mattress.
For those who have purchased from Dreams before, you may have previously purchased this mattress under the Wakefield namesake. Now, the product features a deeper layer of upper comfort with the same pocket springs we know and love.
If you are looking for a complete bedroom experience and wish to replace your bed frame at the same time, Dreams have put together a little package that sees it work well with the Lucia upholstered bed frame. Remember, depending on whether you purchase a bed frame with solid slats or spring slats will help determine firmness with solid slats increasing firmness and tension ever so slightly. This shouldn't be an issue for most but is worth considering if you are looking to retain that all too desirable medium tension.
Reasons to Buy
The best selling mattress in the entire Dreams lineup gives confidence that you're making a good decision.
Pocket springs normally cost considerably more than this on average, being my favourite support layer.
96% consumer satisfaction with such large numbers sold is no small feat.
Reasons to Avoid
1 year guarantee is a little weak, reviews don't highlight any issues that would occur past this point but it would still be nice to see peoples investment protected for longer periods. Fortunately pocket springs are reliable and perform well over time so we don't anticipate issues surrounding this.
