Why our sleep experts loved it
Introducing the Dream Team Swaffham Combination Mattress from Dreams, a fantastic option for those in search of a firmer, supportive mattress at a reasonable price. This upgraded model is a popular choice for back and stomach sleepers and those who prioritise comfort and support. As part of The Dreams Workshop, but pushed under the new Dream Team collection, this mattress comes from a trusted and well-reviewed line of products.
Starting with that support layer and the mattress features 1216 pocket springs, which provide excellent contouring and support for the entire body. These high-quality pocket springs outperform open coil mattresses, ensuring a durable and comfortable sleep surface. To maintain its performance, it is recommended that you rotate this mattress regularly which might be a bit of a pain, but does ensure better durability and lifespan.
When it comes to feedback, many customers have praised the Swaffham Combination Mattress for its impressive comfort and accurate firmness rating with a majority of people finding it to be a great choice for their needs. However, side sleepers may want to consider a mattress with a medium tension firmness rating for a compromise in support that will deliver better sinkage to assist the hips and shoulder as you sleep.
Positive reviews highlight the benefits of the pocket sprung mattress, especially in comparison to other rolled foam options. Many customers reported improvements in sleep quality and reduced back pain after switching to the Swaffham Mattress. The mattress has also been particularly well-received by teenagers upgrading from older single beds, as well as adults experiencing back pain with softer mattresses from previous. One customer mentioned that their 14-year-old son found the mattress to be extremely comfortable and it was difficult to get him out of bed.
Although many customers were happy with their purchase, a few noted that the mattress felt different than they anticipated, especially when used on a slatted bed frame. This is quite common as store models can have quite a lot of use which softens them prior to purchase and can miss-lead slightly. There were also isolated instances of the mattress arriving dirty or damaged, although this looks to be a once off. A handful of customers have also been in touch to comment that the mattress didn't quite meet their comfort expectations, with some describing it as merely average. A few side sleepers felt the mattress was too firm for their needs and opted to utilise Dreams' exchange system to find a more suitable alternative.
Despite some minor concerns, the overall consensus is that the Swaffham Combination Mattress from Dreams is a top choice for those looking for a firm, supportive, and reasonably priced mattress. With over 1400 positive reviews and a 96% consumer satisfaction rating, this mattress has proven itself to be a reliable and comfortable option for many. Just remember to consider your personal sleep preferences and requirements before making a decision, and don't be afraid to take advantage of Dreams' exchange system if needed.
