Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

Really affordable price point that is sure to appeal to many people on a budget.

The firm tension will be ideal for back and stomach sleepers but combination sleepers who occasionally sleep on their side may also find a degree of comfort.

As a successor to the popular Harris mattress, the Follows Traditional Spring Mattress keeps on the same track with an affordable and well reviewed product.

Made in the UK and available in all popular UK sizes.

Relatively fast delivery, something that hasn't been a particular strong point of Dreams in the past.

Some customers may prefer pocket springs over the hourglass Bonnell springs used in this mattress but will quickly find themselves priced out if on a budget.

While the mattress offers great value for its price, traditional spring mattresses generally have a shorter lifespan compared to their pocket sprung counterparts.

Why our sleep experts loved it

Today we are going to be dissecting the Dreams Workshop Follows Traditional Spring Mattress from Dreams, a high-quality mattress designed to provide you with ultimate comfort and support at an affordable price point. We will outline the product's purpose, who it might suit, and the key features that customers appreciate, as well as any potential drawbacks. So read on and let's dive into it.

To start, the Dreams Workshop Follows Traditional Spring Mattress is designed to provide a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface for a wide range of individuals. With its firm tension, it is particularly well-suited for back and stomach sleepers who require additional support for their neck and back. This means that the product is a great option for those on a tight budget, as it offers quality and comfort at a very reasonable price. It is also highly recommended for growing teenagers who require a supportive sleeping surface to accommodate their changing bodies and should provide enough resistance to be more than suitable in the body contouring necessary for muscles to relax and your body to be fully supported.

What makes it great

The Follows Traditional Spring Mattress is an open coil mattress featuring hourglass Bonnell springs, providing reasonable support at a fantastic price. While pocket springs may be preferable for some, the traditional springs used in this mattress offer a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface for most people and come at the price point listed, something you wouldn't be able to achieve with the more expensive pocket springs.

Being a firm tension firmness, this product is suitable for a wide range of sleepers, including back, and front sleepers, although side sleepers may want to consider something with a slightly softer feel (although combination sleepers who do a bit of everything should be fine). If you are on the larger side, you will also find the tension of this product suitable, although it isn't specifically rated for heavier people who may require something a bit more substantial.

The Follows Traditional Spring Mattress is a successor to the highly popular Harris mattress, which was a bestseller in the Dreams collection and one that we had previously reviewed that customers seemed to really love. The new model improves upon its predecessor by offering more fillings for an even more luxurious and comfortable feel.

When it comes to origins, this mattress is proudly made and handcrafted in the UK, forming part of the Dreams Workshop lineup. Known for offering great quality at lower-than-average prices, the Dreams Workshop brand is a fantastic choice for those seeking a mid-range mattress option.

When it comes to key consumer feedback, the Follows Traditional Spring Mattress has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, with customers praising its incredible value for money. Some negative reviews mention that the traditional springs may wear unevenly, potentially leading to warranty claims. However, this issue is relatively rare, and the lower price of the mattress more than compensates for any such occurrences.

Onto the customer service provided with the purchase of the Follows and in the unlikely event that you encounter any issues with your mattress, Dreams has an exceptional customer service team. With over 70,000 reviews, their customer support is highly rated and ready to assist you with any concerns.

In summary, the Dreams Workshop Follows Traditional Spring Mattress is an excellent choice for those seeking a comfortable, supportive, and affordable sleeping surface. Ideal for back and stomach sleepers, as well as growing teenagers, this mattress offers exceptional value without compromising on quality.

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.

After having a number of back problems people advised I invest in a new mattress. I found it quite tricky to pick something that would suit me, and its hard to know what number of springs is good etc! I wanted something at a budget also and honestly I thought the big companies such as Dreams would be too pricey. But after being concerned about purchasing a mattress that would be the wrong size/too hard/soft/poor quality, I had a look at dreams and there was a sale on single mattresses. The website is transparent, described the mattress and who it would suit. Then near the checkout it offers to take your old mattress too! That was another bit of stress removed. So the a green covering arrived before the delivery was due - easy peasy. The delivery men arrived in full PPE and shoe coverings (very good service as Id just had a new carpet in the room done too) and we said they could just leave it in the room and they said no no, we will place it for you then saves you having to dispose of the packing too. Its one of those jobs that you put off because you think itll be a pain and theres logistics to sort out - but dreams made it feel like Id just purchased a cushion off line! Quick, effective, friendly - job done like that! Oh and the mattress is brill, I keep expecting to fall into a dip or hit a spring like my old mattress but its just completely level and firm. So yes, service is awesome and mattress is awesome and all done without breaking the bank. Definitely recommend shopping here.

This mattress was a god send compared to the cheap coil mattress that came with the bed. We use it when one of us has to sleep in the nursery with the little one. Those long nights with not much rest. We both like a firm but comfortable coil mattress and this definitely delivers. We have both noticed a huge improvement in sleep, rest and feeling fresh whether the little one lets us have a full night sleep or not. This was a worry for me at first as my back is not in the best shape at the minute but it has been very supportive and helped a lot. It has been a long long time since I have slept on a single mattress myself and I was not feeling confident in the beginning but it really is very comfortable. Quick delivery, no marks or damage or weird smells like some foam mattresses. We cant be without it now. Its a great buy, well worth the money and a definite improvement. I can imagine this would be great for little ones moving into there first full size bed too. Buy it and see for yourself.

This is a great budget mattress. It is firm for a child, not so firm when i had to sleep in the bed with my little one but it was very comfortable even if not firm for me! Nice thick mattress and traditional which i always prefer. I brought online, was delivered on my selected date, the driver called before my scheduled slot to ask if they could come early due to a cancellation which i was pleased about as i could continue with my day. Even if he hadn't of called i liked they gave you a 2 hour timeframe. The driver took it to the room it was to be used in and asked where i would like it, super friendly as i am so happy with the purchase, i took out the added protection cover as well.

So I originally purchased another mattress from a well known manufacturer who totally let me down on delivery. I then cancelled this and purchased one from Argos at about 100 but this was very poor and quite thin so sent it back. Didnt realise dreams were open during lockdown but drove past and went in. Tested the mattress and went online, paid and got it delivered in three days free. So for less that 250 you cant go wrong with this which Im using for on a guest bed. It was reduced (although I never really believe or look at reduced prices) and it was very comfy. It is bouncy though so if your looking for a solid mattress this wont be for you. Full marks Dreams

I bought this mattress a couple of weeks ago online, in the sale, for my 4 year old son. We were upgrading his bed and mattress from a toddler sized one to a single bed. The transition was surprisingly easy and he loved his new mattress! A week into using it, he was poorly and with the mattress being strong and big enough to support us both (just about!) I was able to get a comfortable sleep on it too. The buying process was simple and quick. The delivery was on time and well packaged. There was an option for Dreams to take our old mattress away but we had another method of disposing but handy to have this option from Dreams.

I have been searching through different websites for a mattress for my 18 year old son for weeks & as he suffers with back problems i was reading the reviews throughout. Reviews i think personally help & anyone reading this, trust me when i say this mattress really helped my son at nights with his back problem very thankful to dreams & this was a very good buy, especially half price too! I also purchased another for my 13 year old son & he said it is the most comfortable mattress hes ever slept on. Excellent all round, delivery was very quick & communication on the delivery day was excellent!

I bought this mattress 3 weeks ago for my son as we've upgraded his bed from a single to a double. I wanted to wait a couple of weeks before reviewing so I could leave an honest review after it had been tested properly. My sons said the mattress is comfy and he's been sleeping a lot better too. It's firm but has enough spring to make it comfortable and soft. I was even more pleased to get it during a Dreams sale so it was half price! So far we cannot fault it or Dreams. The process from ordering to receiving and setting it up has been brilliant. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this mattress again.

This mattress does exactly what it says, it's comfortable and affordable. What stood out for me more than anything was the exceptional customer services during such uncertain times from covid 19. I ordered the mattress before lockdown. From the moment the government announced the conditions of lockdown, Dreams staff kept me regularly updated via email and phone. They went out of there way to give me some of the first available delivery dates when able. Telephoned me the day of delivery to explain how they would deliver. And the delivery staff were fantastic. Thank you dreams.

I bought this last month for our daughter to progress from her toddler bed after out growing it. Its a great quality mattress and very comfortable, we have even seen an improvement in our daughters sleep which was usually very broken but we're finding she is sleeping through most nights at last. The mattress design is very pretty and not old fashioned or cheap looking like most of the others I looked at. The only fault I can find is that you can't flip it which is something I often like to do, I'm hoping this won't make too much difference to the comfort over time.

Recently got my own place to live and I was gifted this mattress from my parents. I can honestly say that its the best mattress Ive slept on, I find it hard to sleep and found living on my own for the first time pretty nerve racking so having somewhere comfortable to sleep takes priority. Delivery guys were really friendly and helpful too so thats a bonus, they carried in and put it on my bed and unpacked it, gave me advice to let it air until the next day. They took the packaging so there was no mess to clear up. Thank you Dreams

Looking for a good mattress can be a bit of a minefielddo you buy memory foam or one containing one of several hundred different spring varieties? Best thing about having a shop nearby was I walked in, was greeted by two employees who asked me who it was for and talked me through the various sensible options. The result: two Harris single mattresses for my twin boys for their first grown up beds and theyre mega happy! Im happy knowing that the mattresses are supportive where needed and my boys will grow up with comfort.

Just recently bought this to replace an old mattress. This is considerably cheaper but in some ways better than the old one. The old one came with a full bed I had bought about 11 years ago and to be honest, it only just fit the bed, it went over the edges and was too bulky, which made rotating difficult as a double. This Harris Spring Mattress is also a double and just as firm but slimmer, so much easier to rotate regularly and whats more, it fits on the old bed PERFECTLY. Wish I'd got this one with the original bed purchase.

I need something firm but something where I dont feel the springs stabbing me and the the bed being very comfortable would you suggest this bed

Answer: We do recommend that you visit one of the show rooms if you have very specific needs. We have a Sleep Match machine in every store that can recommend the best mattress for you. Alternatively, if you are looking to order online then I would say the range of traditional spring mattresses are very comfortable. If you disagree you are entitled to a 40 night comfort exchange. You can read more about the terms and conditions of this online.

Hi would like to know if you can feel the springs when sleeping please

Answer: This mattress has been designed with a comfort layer which is the top later of the mattress so you should not be able to feel the springs. Depending on your personal sensitivity however some people may be more prone to feeling the springs. For peace of mind you can visit your local store to test its suitability. Thanks, Dreams

Are these mattresses easy to lift up and move? Or are they quite weighted and heavy. I have a bed that lets me lift up the mattress for storage so Im just wondering if Id be able to lift this myself.
