Overview

becky says

The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress is a new mattress from the bed specialists Coolflex, sold through the popular bedding retailer Mattress Next Day. Research shows that while CoolFlex is a UK based brand that has been trading for a number of years, amassing a large number of reviews across a reasonably large range mattresses. The ProPosture mattress adds to the range by giving customers a clear choice for those who need additional support through orthopaedic and posture related issues (hence the name).

So who exactly is this mattress going to suit? Back sleepers primarily as side sleepers typically need a bit more softness in their support layer than this extra firm tension will deliver. In fact, this product is going to be fairly niche, not just because of the back sleeper qualities, rather that the firmness is considered specialist and should be considered primarily if you have been recommended to purchase an extra firm mattress for benefits like neck and back support.

Moving on to who the mattress won't suit, well that's quite easy. Almost everyone else not featured above. See, side sleepers need to be able to sink into the product, their shoulders and hip need to sink further than other parts of the body to avoid strain and uneven body contouring which are not things you will get from an extra firm support like this.

The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress is remarkably well priced given its orthopaedic credentials. As such we can expect sales to be strong in the budget price point that it finds itself in. The price point makes sense too as the product is pretty much just a block of foam and a cover and so there are not many ancillary costs in manufacturing that would normally get passed onto the consumer. Don't let that put you off however, as the reviews are in and customers rate the performance of this product highly. On top of the strong customer feedback the manufacturer has also backed the product with a 5 year guarantee which goes beyond the average for this segment and shows you just how much faith they have in their product.

From a firmness perspective, we would rate this product a 9/10 meaning it is very firm and feels almost board-like to the touch. If this is what you are looking for then you should find this mattress will suit your needs.

Customer reviews are another area where the ProPosture shines, with 70+ reviews at the time of writing with only 1 negative review garnered in this time which aptly mentions that the mattress is "rock hard" which is in line with expectations for this type of product and if anything, a ringing endorsement. Other customers say much the same thing with comments around the good nights sleep and board like comfort helping with customers back back and other ailments.

Reasons to Buy

An extra firm mattress that is fairly breathable at a reasonable price point will be sure to entice many looking for orthopaedic comfort.

Well-known brand and retailer means you can buy with confidence.

Customer feedback is really positive for those looking for this type of product.

All popular sizes available.

Reasons to Avoid

Very niche product, if you don't need extra firm tension you probably shouldn't buy this.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

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

  • 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.

What Makes The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress Great?

ProPosture™ Ortho Support Foam

19cm depth

A 19cm depth mattress is considered a fairly average size for the industry and is generally sufficient enough to house a decent support system and comfort layer. 19cm is not considered suitable for bunk beds as the depth is a little too thick and could cause the child to roll over the protected guide rail.

Extra firm support

An extra firm tension mattress is typically suited toward back and front sleepers as they provide a stable and even surface with a focus toward those who enjoy sleeping "on top" of their mattress rather than sinking into it.

Removeable AirFlo™ Cover

The AirFlo cover has some added benefits over your traditional damask outer protection, namely in its ability to regulate heat thanks to impressive airflow without compromising durability or comfort. The AirFlo benefits do not stop there however, with further in-roads in the areas of hygiene thanks to the cover being removable.

No Need To Turn

This means that the product does not need to be turned over, but make no mistake, that is not the same as saying a product does not need to be rotated. If you do not want dips in your mattress with time, be sure to rotate evenly every month where possible

Vacuum Packed & Rolled

Vacuum packing and rolled mattresses now account for 26% of all consumer mattress purchases. Growing in popularity due to their almost identical performance to that of a normal mattress, these mattresses are able to be carried up tight stairways, picked up from the store and delivered much cheaper meaning those cost savings often get passed to the consumer. Well worth consideration, the idea that a rolled mattress is inferior has long been disproven, especially with the rise of bed-in-the-box retailers like Eve and Simba

No roll together

Specifically designed with roll together prevention in mind. This means the product likely has better quality internals and offers better support than other mattresses in the same price point.

Pressure Relieving

Due to the support structure in place within this mattress it advertises as benefiting from pressure relieving properties. The way a mattress can achieve this is through the use of a good quality spring system that can contour to the body, providing tension equally across all areas of the body dependant on sleeping position and pressure

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Customer Reviews For The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress

Based on 65 reviews

Update after 7 months - the mattress sags quite a bit in the middle and can be a bit uncomfortable. I would not buy it again.If you want an extra firm mattress, do not worry whether this will be firm enough. It will. It is easily the firmest mattress I have ever slept on. It took me a few nights to get used to and I had shoulder pain during that time. That has now gone and I sleep well in it. My lower back pain has reduced a lot in the (nearly) two weeks that i've been sleeping on it. I find it very comfortable.

4

Read all reviews, had spent 4yrs crippled on an expensive matress waking up with lower back and hip pain. This mattress has done the job at less than a quarter of the price of our igel mattress. Took 4 nights to get used to as it is like a brick compared to lieing on an igel medium firm mattress, but 2nd week in and its amazing! I can get out of bed without having to walk any pain off. Also doesnt make you hot like some memory foam.

5

This mattress is super firm. The firmest mattress I have ever lain on. I am a big man and it seems like it barely even compresses. If you are looking for a firm mattress this is it. If you are sharing it with a partner that doesn't want a super firm mattress it may be difficult for them. I was having back issues and this has helped tremendously. The only complaint is that it is slightly larger than a standard uk king.

5

Excellent value for money. Tried a 700 similar mattress in a local store and this feels exactly the same level of comfort for a fraction of the price. Ordered extra firm due to back issues and since weve been sleeping on it, we can really notice a big difference. Delivered next day with no issues. Would highly recommend and would purchase from this supplier again in the future.

5

The mattress is exactly as described on the website, firm, a little firmer then I expected but my husband loved it straight away. It has been in place now a week and I have to say it is extremely comfortable much better than the last mattress we had from a reputable company that cost 1,000, this is far better value and would definately purchase from this company again.

5

Overwhelmed by my fantastic new mattress had my doubts like we all do. This is exactly as I hoped firm but fantastic support with excellent bounce back properties at 1/2 to a 1/3 cost of many advertised so easy to set inflated to exact size stated far quicker and able to use same night no smells like I have read on other reviews. Best mattress I have ever puchased.

5

Comfortable and hard as expected. Cannot expect better price for the excellent quality of this mattress. Mind that you have to roll it out and preferably leave in a different room for 2 - 4 days to clear up the foam smell but weve had to do that before even with spring mattresses because they bring the factory smell with them.

4

Have the mattress over a week now so far so goodi was looking for a firm one and really firm not just a someone said firm typevery hard to find a really firm mattress but so far this one does the job I hope it will last as well.I happy with it thanks

4

We ordered firm on the basis that other reviews said the medium was too bouncy. However the firm mattress version is almost too firm with very little give. However it looks like it will be a very hard wearing mattress for the cost.

5

Wish we had bought one of these years ago! goodbye to bad backs and a welcome hello to a fantastic night's sleep. Took some getting used to never slept on a firm one before but now very happy!

5

Great mattress comfortable work's well on bad backs nice prices and very quick delivery excellent company to order mattress from would definitely recommend and I will be using them again.

5

Terrific bed. Does exactly what is says. Keeps you cool and really supportive for people with bad backs. The anti allergy cover it comes in is an even bigger bonus. What a product.

5

The extra firm mattress is exactly what I need. Its help to protect my problem back while comfort has not been compromised. I am happy that I have selected this product.

5

Due to arthritis of various joints I needed a firm, flat mattress, this is extra firm and fit's the bill just great, time will tell if this lasts! happy with it so far.

5

It is certainly firm and supportive and as advertised but it is too early to comment on durability. For me it is a guest bed item so I can't say too much.

5

Very comfortable. Great service good value. Delivery guys were professional and followed all covid rules . Im impressed will use again and recommend.

4

This mattress is "firm" unlike others that say they are firm. My daughter has only had one night's sleep on the mattress but she says it was great.
