Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

A mattress is one of the most important decisions you'll make and you deserve to sleep well. That's why today we are looking at the Dunlopillo Lair 1190 Hybrid Mattress available from a number of retailers as part of a new online-mattress-retailer-appeasing range from Dunlopillo. Being a hybrid mattress, this one aims to provide the best of both worlds by offering unbeatable comfort and tailored contouring support, but does it live up to those demands? Let's break it down.

Starting with that hybrid support layer and you get a high quality pocket spring layer which is found in many moderate to high priced mattresses in various quantities. Typically the number of springs in a pocket spring mattress reflects the quality to a certain degree and with 1190 contouring pockets working individually you will find a comfortable night's sleep is to be had. That's not all though as you also get a generous helping (50mm) of Dunlopillo's signature pure latex which has most of the comforting properties of more popular materials like memory foam, but without many of the downsides, particularly heat retention which causes sweating which causes tossing and turning which, predictably interrupts your REM sleep and causes you to sleep worse. All of those pitfalls avoided with a fantastic latex layer. 

If you look through most of my other reviews you'll see that this pocket-spring and latex combination is one of my favourite, the pocket springs outlast and outperform other base layers while the latex, in my opinion, matches memory foam for comfort while having non of the pitfalls commonly associated with it. it's a bit of a win-win.

Available as a medium-firm tension, this mattress will favour those who prefer to sleep on their stomachs or backs. For those who sleep on their side, suitability will be determined by your body frame as those with hourglass figures may find they don't get full contact support. Those slightly heavier than average would likely find this suitable for sleeping on the side though as your body will naturally depress the pocket springs to a greater amount than someone lighter.  For those who do not fit this profile, Dunlopillo do have the Dunlopillo Pad mattress which has much the same make-up as this one in a medium tension which may suit better.

Finally, thanks to the latex inside the mattress this product is naturally hypoallergenic making it ideally suited to those that are looking for a healthier and cleaner nights sleep, naturally protecting from dust mites and mildew.

Reasons to Buy

Well known brand who have nearly a century of experience in the industry.

Generous helpings of premium pocket springs and latex, both fan favourites.

Naturally hypoallergenic, helping those in need.

5 year guarantee that is above average in the market.

Surprisingly low price point given the brands history in the top-tier.

Reasons to Avoid

I always try to find a few cons that might put people off, but in this instance it's available for fast delivery from a retailer you can trust, in sizing to suit most rooms and in my personal favourite combination of pocket springs and latex. Affordability may still pinch for those in the squeezed middle right now, particularly with everything going on in the world, but there is genuine value for money here. Being picky I prefer medium tension mattresses as more of a one-size-fits-all approach to sleep, but Dunlopillo have made that option available with their other product in the range, the Pad.

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.


*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.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • 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.


  • 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 Dunlopillo Lair 1190 Hybrid Mattress Great?

1190 pocket springs for superior support

Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.

Soothing layer of pressure-relieving latex

Foam encapsulated for increased sleeping space

Firmness rating of medium to firm

Medium tension mattresses are suitable for the vast majority of people as they are not too soft, nor too firm. This firmness can offer a good amount of back and neck support while still being soft enough to prove suitable for side sleepers. The key benefit for this type of layer is that it's sort of a "one size fits all" approach that gives your body the contouring and support necessary while remaining soft and squishy.

Beautifully soft knitted cover

Knitted covers offer a good degree of breathability that helps keep you cool while you sleep which is also particularly important for hygiene. Knitted covers are also incredibly soft making the fabric an ideal outer layer.

Naturally Hypoallergenic

A Hypoallergenic mattress is one that is unlikely to cause allergies thanks to the materials that make up its composition. This is all thanks to a reduced number of allergens in the compound that are gentle on the skin and won't cause irritation while also reducing the effects of allergy triggers like dust mites and bacteria.

Doesn't retain heat - a cool, fresh night's sleep

A mattress that is breathable can help to keep you cooler and fresher during the night. This type of mattress allows air to circulate through the material, which can help to regulate your body temperature and be especially beneficial if you tend to sleep hot. A breathable mattress can also help to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to mold and mildew growth.

Latex comes from sustainably managed plantations

Single-sided - no flipping needed

Non turn mattresses have a few benefits, most importantly that they do not need to be flipped, saving time effort and energy that can be better focussed toward getting a good nights sleep. Do be aware however that you should still be rotating your mattress in line with the manufacturers guidelines for the product. 

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

5 year guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is quite rare in the industry and is a great indicator of the retailer beleiving in their product. Anything go wrong in the next 5 years, no drama, get it replaced.


Latex mattresses will never be latex all the way through, rather, it will be used as a top later. We often find that latex foam, combined with either springs or reflex foam will be combined in order to create the perfect mattress.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Reinforced mattress edge

One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.


Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.


Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the mattress.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team
