Why our sleep experts loved it
The Dream Team Maidstone Pocket Sprung Mattress is a firmer tension mattress designed to cater to specific sleeping needs. Boasting 1015 pocket springs, this mattress outperforms other support structures, such as reflex foam and open coil bonnell springs, in terms of support, affordability, and longevity. Its dual-sided design allows for rotation and flipping, doubling the surface area for sleep and settlement. Handcrafted by expert craftsmen, the mattress is an adapted and improved version of the best-selling Hudson and, before that, the Orchid mattress.
What Makes the Dream Team Maidstone Mattress Great
A key feature of this mattress is the high GSM fillings that provide a soft, comfortable layer on top of the firmer base layer. The combination of these two layers offers a fantastic night's sleep, as evidenced by the numerous positive customer reviews. The double-sided design not only adds longevity to the mattress, but also ensures better comfort for years to come.
Who the Product Will Suit
This firmer-than-average mattress is ideal for back sleepers and those who suffer from back pain, as it offers enhanced back and neck support. However, side sleepers with a smaller frame and no history of back pain might find this mattress too firm and may prefer a softer option.
What Customers Think
With an impressive 96% consumer satisfaction rate, customers have praised the Dream Team Maidstone Mattress for its value, quality, support, and comfort. Many have reported experiencing a great night's sleep, free of aches and pains. However, some customers found the mattress too firm and suggested adding a softer layer for increased comfort. This is subjective, however, there are already medium tension mattresses available from Dreams at a similar price point that would cater to this. Instead, the focus of the Maidstone is to cater to back and stomach sleepers who require additional support for their back and neck.
The Upper Comfort Layer
The upper comfort layer of the mattress is made from high GSM fillings that provide a soft, cushioned surface to sleep on. This layer complements the firm base layer, offering a balanced level of comfort and support for a restful night's sleep. This isn’t the best comfort layer you can get, but it does come at a very reasonable price that would otherwise be out of reach. This compromise on comfort layer materials does allow for more money to be invested in the support layer below, which far exceeds its cost-profile, punching significantly above its weight as a result.
The Support Layer
The support layer of the mattress features 1015 pocket springs, offering superior support compared to other support structures like reflex foam and open coil bonnell springs. This layer not only provides excellent support to the sleeper, but also helps maintain the mattress's shape and extends its lifespan. We prefer pocket springs to every other support type, they are long lasting and perform consistently and without major issues for many years often beating open coil and reflex foam counterparts.
