Why our sleep experts loved it
When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, the right mattress can make all the difference. That's why I'm excited to introduce you to the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress, a new product from the retailer Mattress Online. This mattress is designed for those who are looking for a high-quality option that offers both comfort and support and are willing to try something a bit different.
Let’s start with who might find this product suitable and we find that the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress is a great option for side sleepers. The soft-medium tension of the mattress provides a snug and comfortable feel, while the comfort layers plush pillow top offers additional cushioning for ultimate softness. The 1000 pocket springs and 2000 micro springs in the support layer also work together to provide targeted help, which is especially important for side sleepers who need extra bolstering and assistance for their hips and shoulders. None of this is to say that back and stomach sleepers will not be able to find comfort in this sort of mattress, however it is clearly optimised for combination sleepers and side sleepers alike.
We mentioned briefly the pillow top and the comfort derived from that layer, but there’s also another layer beneath this and above the base layer, in the form of another comfort layer. In this case the product also features three comfort layers of natural wool, as well as a sumptuously cosy layer of latex. This combination of materials helps to keep the mattress breathable, which is important for maintaining a comfortable sleeping temperature throughout the night. Additionally, the firm edge bolster ensures that the mattress maintains its shape and prevents sagging over time. This all comes together to create what is quite a deep mattress, and one that will justifiably require deeper fitting sheets than average. For the volume of components and quality however, it’s a small sacrifice to have to pay.
Moving onto the outside of the product and you get a fairly typical, albeit quite colourful in this example, breathable knitted fabric cover. This helps to keep the mattress cool and comfortable, making it perfect for use in any season, pairing particularly well with the other breathable layers within. One thing that might deter a few people is that the pillow top means that the mattress cannot be flipped, meaning this is a single sided mattress which historically has a bit less durability than its two-sided counterparts. The compromise here is that you get a much deeper comfort layer at the expense, it feels worth it.
Remember how I just said this mattress does not need to be flipped? Still true, but that does not mean it shouldn’t be rotated top to bottom to reduce indentations and increase surface area usage. To that end, the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress comes with four turning handles, making it easy to rotate that have been paired with that stylish (maybe?) colour design that will complement any bedroom décor for the minutes a week that it won’t be covered up by a sheet. It is also foam-free construction, which is great for people who are looking for a more natural and eco-friendly option.
Q: How many pocket springs does the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress have?
A: The mattress has 1000 pocket springs with a further 2000 micro tablet springs for additional body contouring.
Q: How often should the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress be rotated?
A: It is recommended to rotate the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress every 3 to 6 months.
Q: Is the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress foam-free?
A: Yes, the mattress is foam-free construction utilising more environmentally friendly alternatives throughout much of the product.
Q: Is the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress suitable for back sleepers?
A: While the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress is specifically designed for side sleepers, it does have the pocket springs and micro tablet springs that provide targeted support, which may also make it suitable for back sleepers. However, this product comes with a 60-night sleep trial through Mattress Online, so it’s probably worth a go.
In conclusion, the Elle Decoration Latex Pillow Top 3000 Pocket Mattress is a great option for side sleepers who are looking for a comfortable and supportive mattress that offers targeted support for the hips and shoulders. Its combination of materials, such as natural wool and latex, make the mattress breathable, and the firm edge support ensures that it maintains its shape over time. The breathable knitted fabric cover, foam-free construction, and single-sided design make it easy to maintain and the sheer volume of comfort layers provided would genuinely normally be found for twice the price in a competing Sealy or Hypnos example. I can’t say I really know too much about the brand, but if the components are anything to go by, we’re definitely onto a winner.
