Why our sleep experts loved it

Here's a comprehensive product review blog piece for the Auckland Extra Firm Mattress.

Slumbering away on a comfortable and supportive mattress could be the critical difference between a joyous morning and a grumpy one. The mattress you choose plays an important role in determining the quality of rest you get each night. It directly impacts your energy levels, wellbeing, and overall health. That's why the Auckland Extra Firm Mattress grabs our attention - a mattress designed with firmness in mind, but also layered with an array of technologically advanced features to maximise comfort and quality of sleep.

How we tested

Our rigorous testing of the Auckland Extra Firm Mattress was conducted in our local Bensons for Beds store, to ensure we experienced the product first-hand and in real time. We placed the mattress through an intensive routine, assessing its comfort level, firmness, and overall quality. We tested across a variety of factors including how the mattress supports different sleep positions, how it regulates temperature and how it responds to pressure.

Design and features

The Auckland Extra Firm Mattress wields a selection of impressive features to enhance your sleep. Deep within the mattress, the PostureTech Core Support Spring System works tirelessly, providing superior pressure relief as it gradually firms up under increasing pressure. Slumberers will delight in the Tencel® Fibres weave, a breath of fresh air, designed to regulate body temperature, ensuring you remain cool and dry throughout the night.

An unexpected delight is the EdgeGuard feature that provides a stiff border around the edge of the bed. This clever addition extends the effective sleeping space, helping sleepers indulge in those extra inches of comfort often ignored by many mattresses. Adding to its allure, the mattress is draped in a luxurious, soft and breathable Belgian Damask cover, finished off with a novel ProShield® treatment, keeping allergens at bay for a pure and restful snooze.

Mattress comfort

Firmness is a distinctive trait of the Auckland Extra Firm Mattress; however, it does not compromise on comfort. The mattress satisfies with a rich blend of sturdiness that aids in aligning the spine, and yielding softness that lets you sink just enough to find your perfect mould. This balance encapsulates a warm and embracing comfort, countered with the reassurance of posture support.

Suitability

The Auckland Extra Firm Mattress is a perfect choice for back and stomach sleepers who prefer a robust support system. Side sleepers or those with an hourglass figure might find it a tad too stiff, as they often require a little more cushioning for their hips and shoulders. Despite this, for exclusive back sleepers, this mattress offers an unrivalled firm sleep experience.

What customers thought

User reviews paint a largely positive image, with an abundance of customers praising the comfort and quality of sleep they witness. The mattress's ability to significantly improve back pain has been touted by many users. The temperature regulation feature also gets a thumbs-up from a considerable amount of sleepers, preferring its cooling comfort. However, a small ensemble of users has found it excessively firm, leading to some discomfort, indicating that the comfort rating is, to a significant degree, subjective.

The verdict

In the realm of extra firm mattresses, the Auckland Extra Firm Mattress stakes its claim impressively. With its charming blend of support and comfort, this mattress sure makes its presence felt. That being said, it might not cater to everyone's comfort preferences. Therefore, before you sign the cheque, consider your sleeping habits and what comfort means to you.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Odour

  • Initial Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

I needed a really firm mattress due to a spinal fusion I have had. Its ok but not worth the price it is. My daughter has scoliosis and had a full spinal fusion and we bought her a Silent night bed a few years ago and that was and still is, firmer than this bed and half the price. Unfortunately, this mattress is no longer available, otherwise I'd have purchased one of those instead

The mattress was purchased for my daughter who required a very extra firm mattress that was proving difficult to source. From the moment we stepped into the Purley Way show room to delivery of the actual mattress was an excellent service. Both sales reps were very knowledgeable, delivery guys were superb & we were kept updated throughout the process. Would highly recommend Bensons.

Lovely comfortable firm mattress since having this I have slept very well , the height is just right for me as I have a disability and cannot bend my leg so this has made this so much easier to get up . We brought the bed base and headboard as well as the mattress and I cannot complain at all , just wished I'd done it sooner ....

My new mattress, delivered by Bensons ; arrived promptly, well packaged and with no fuss, delivered direct to my bedroom. The new Auckland Extra firm mattress was all that I'd hoped, giving me all the support that I needed and the comfort that I wanted. My only regret - that I hadn't bought it years ago !

My new mattress is very comfortable and I recommend this product to people who like to sleep on a firm mattress. The thing I like most about this mattress is that I get a good nights sleep and when my partner moves or gets out of bed it doesn't bounce about and wake me.
