Why our sleep experts loved it

We realise, as experts in the realm of bedding, that the importance of a good sleep cannot be overstated. Not only does it rejuvenate your body, but it also refreshes your mind, setting the stage for an active, productive day. But to avail all the benefits of a comfortable night's sleep, it's essential that you have the right mattress. The Auckland Firm Support Mattress, manufactured in the UK exclusively for Bensons for Beds, can be that perfect companion. Offering a bevy of benefits, this mattress aims to ensure a peaceful slumber. So, let's delve into the specifics.

How we tested

For maximum credibility, we tested this mattress in our local Bensons for Beds store with the retailer. We felt it, tested its compressive strength, and even lied down on it to fully comprehend its comfort level. We also analysed the in-depth specifications, putting a specific focus on its construction. Our team also considered different environmental conditions, room configurations, and body types to facilitate an exhaustive review.

Design and features

The Auckland Firm Support Mattress boasts a variety of impressive features. The core of this mattress incorporates a PostureTech support spring system. This system is unique in that the springs actually get firmer under increasing pressure, providing a robust, yet comfortable, level of support. The mattress is surrounded by EdgeGuard, which discourages roll-off and enhances durability. The lovely Belgian Damask cover is not just soft and breathable, but also quite resilient.

The mattress surface further benefits from Tencel® fibres which help regulate body temperature, keeping you cool and dry. The bed is also infused with ProShield®, a natural treatment that combats allergens, earning it an endorsement from Allergy UK. With these carefully curated features, the Auckland Firm Support Mattress goes beyond just comfort; it offers a lifestyle upgrade.

Mattress comfort

The mattress is very comfortable capitalising on a medium-firm feel. Its top layer is inviting - soft enough for comfort but firm enough to provide efficient support. The central zoning PowerPack focuses on providing additional support and pressure relief for your lower back and hips, ensuring your spine maintains a natural 'S' shape. It rather feels like the mattress is giving you a warm hug, with just the right equilibrium between firmness and softness, making for an exceedingly comfortable experience.

Suitability

The Auckland Firm Support Mattress, given its firm tension, would make an ideal pick for back sleepers as well as some stomach sleepers. This is because the firmness of the mattress provides a level of support that can help maintain spinal alignment. With the posture support system, it holds the body in a healthy sleeping position, making for a comfortable snooze. However, individuals sleeping on their side or those who have hourglass figures may not find this mattress as comfortable due to the lack of adequate sinkage around the hip and shoulder area. So, for back sleepers who yearn for a firm mattress, this product could be their holy grail.

What customers thought

The reviews from customers are a testament to the quality of the Auckland Firm Support Mattress. Users have reported improved sleep quality, relief from back discomfort, and overall satisfaction with the product. They've praised its firm yet comfortable feel, providing an excellent night's sleep. Plus, the convenience of the 0% interest plan offered by Benson Beds is well appreciated among buyers.

The verdict

To state the verdict succinctly, the Auckland Firm Support Mattress might just be the mattress you have been dreaming of. Its well-thought design, supportive features, and the luxurious comfort it offers makes it a serious contender in your search for the perfect mattress. So, should you find yourself yearning for improved sleep health and a firm mattress that catifies to your comfort needs, you might just want to pay a visit to Bensons for Beds.

Only had it for a couple of weeks, but still unsure. It doesn't seem too firm to be honest. It keeps moving on my bed base. Hence why I've only given it a 3 star. But it'll cost too much to send back as you have to pay extra to exchange it within in the time allowed to do that, and I can't really afford that now. Maybe if I'd had been told about the mattress and assessed for the one I needed I might have bought the right one for my needs. Lesson learnt.

Comfortable and supportive mattress, since having this I am no longer getting reoccurring back aches. Only issue is the bounciness of the mattress, when one person moves or gets up there is a lot of movement felt which does disturb sleep. This seems to be the only issue and is perhaps common to most mattresses.

Ordered this as decided with getting uncomfortable nights sleep having always had medium soft mattresses it was time for a change and go firm. It's the best thing I could've done. The quality is fabulous and after the first few nights I find it's the best nights sleep for years. Highly recommend.

We're glad that we chose this matress. It is firm, without being hard. Like a lot of modern mattresses, it is deeper than we have been used to previously. That's good, because our new bedding has wider sheets.
