Today we're looking at something really special. The Natures Finest 4450 Pillow Top Mattress is one of the more popular in the distinguished and well-regarded Flaxby range and made by renowned Harrison Spinks on behalf of Dreams.
When it comes to making a good mattress a few things must hold true in the support and comfort layers of a mattress, and being priced as keenly as this one, it's going to be important Flaxby get it right. Let's dive in and see what they've put together underneath that luxurious mattress cover...
Starting with the support layer and we're working with an impressive 4450 individual pocket springs, including exclusive DNAir pocket springs. This looks to be a combination hybrid between traditional pocket springs and a firm of micro spring layer that will sit above. The benefit of a model like the proposed is that you get more springs, more bounce back and more support. The slight downside to this set up may come in the form of it's weight whereby the more springs you add to the mattress the heavier it becomes. This is compounded by the recommendation to rotate head to toe regularly to help ensure adequate and even settlement of springs and fillings. That said, Flaxby have covered for this eventuality by including quality grips on both sides of the mattress to help facilitate turning in a more convenient manner. Definitely do not be put off by the weight, it's the price you pay for quality.
Furthermore the support layer comes in a variety of different firmness grades, ensuring that this mattress really is suitable for everyone.
Onto the comfort layer and you have a sumptuous pillow top and upper layer made up of generous helpings of Natural cotton, wool & hemp fillings. While exact quantities of each are not provided, it is clear from pictures and depth that we are dealing with generous quantities of all. Dreams do not make specific mention of anti-allergy, nor breathability but traditionally with this natural makeup it is not uncommon to find the mattress breathable and thereby cooling, preventing you from getting too hot while you sleep, and also proving to be hypoallergenic. It's something we've reached out to the supplier to find out and will update this review when we have further clarification.
For the icing on the cake, this mattress comes with an impress 5 year guarantee which will help inspire further confidence for the consumer. After all, with the average life expectancy of a mattress pegged at around 7 years, you're getting near lifetime protection against defects or other issues which may crop up. That said, from a brand as reliable and well known as flaxby, the likelihood remains slim. Regardless though, the guarantee represents the confidence that both the retailer and supplier both have in what is sure to be a customer favourite.

Reasons to Avoid
There are those that prefer traditional toppers to pillow tops and as such pillow tops can be somewhat divisive. Personally, I find them great provided you rotate in line with manufacturer care guide instructions. Failure to follow rotation guidelines may result in uneven settlement which creates dipping. Dipping is more of a risk when you have effectively two comfort layers instead of one. There is reward, but risk too so make sure you keep on top of it.
