Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

A backcare-oriented mattress like the Fleurette is designed to provide support and relief for people with back pain, joint pain, and other aches and pains (although as the name suggests it is mainly targeting backcare). This type of mattress can be especially beneficial for people who suffer from insomnia because of pain and has a few key benefits over a traditional mattress. See, a traditional mattress may be too soft or too firm for people with aches and pains, making it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep while a backcare mattress like the Fleurette is designed with a combination of comfort and firm support in mind, making it easier for people to get the rest they need. Backcare mattresses are available in a wide range of configurations, sizes, and styles but typically always hover around the firmer side of tension. 

So who exactly will benefit from a mattress like this? Mainly those who sleep on their stomach or back primarily and who are currently looking for additional help and support with their back. The firmer tension comes from the support layer beneath which, in this case, is a premium pocket spring support layer typically found in higher priced products.The result is a mattress that punches above its price-class while offering great value for those who are looking to invest in a product tailored to their back care.

This brings us neatly on to who the mattress would not suit. The Fleurette is not made with side sleepers in mind evidenced by both its backcare name and the tension of the springs. This is due to the fact that your hip and shoulders stick out from you and without adequate sinkage you end up rolling your shoulder rather than sinking into the mattress, causing more pain and discomfort and creating poorer quality sleep. To reiterate, this is a backcare mattress that is designed to assist in this area.

We touched previously on where this mattress competes in the industry and against its competitors and I would say this product fits into the budget price band (at time of writing a double mattress is coming in at mid £3XX figures). This price band typically comes with sacrifices but we’re struggling to see them. See, the support layer is already premium in the pocket springs offered. The comfort layer too, is double sided and features two different sides with two different comforts, premium wool for staying cool (it’s really breathable) on one side and environmentally friendly recyclable fillings for staying warm on the other. While the GSM depth of these fillings is not disclosed, it’s clear there’s big value for money here.

So what of the firmness and its ranked value? We judge mattresses for their tension between 1 and 10, with 1 being very soft and 10 being very firm. For the Fleurette we would rate it a 8. We’ve definitely seen firmer mattresses which brings that number down a bit, but it’s also definitely not a medium tension that commands a 5. The product is a bit too firm for side sleepers and so that’s why we would push it to an 8.

Customer feedback is non-existent as of right now as the product only got released last week (at time of writing), it means that we won’t see long term reviews for some time. However, do not let this put you off as Bensons for Beds have been long in the industry with a proven track record for offering consistently good quality products. Same too with the configurations on offer. What is more, you get a 5 year guarantee for the ultimate piece of mind.

Reasons to Buy

This designation will suit a growing niche of sleepers who are looking for a firmer support in their sleep.

Double sided and with different seasons for the comfort layers is a really nice touch seen on the much more premium priced products from competitors.

Price point and guarantee that will protect budget customers.

Reasons to Avoid

Long lead time at time of writing may require forward planning from customers.

New product so limited long term reviews, although we have seen  these components in this configuration previously perform well.

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.

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.

What Makes The Fleurette Backcare Mattress Great?

1000 firm pocket springs – for premium balanced support

Pocket springs are a type of spring system that is used in mattresses and upholstered furniture. They are often considered to be a step up from traditional coil springs, as they provide a number of advantages in terms of comfort, support, and durability with the main benefits of pocket springs being that they offer superior levels of support. This is because each spring is individually encased in its own fabric pocket, meaning that it is able to move independently of the others. This allows the springs to contour to your body more effectively, providing targeted support where you need it most.

Upholstered in a Belgian damask cover – gives you a soft, durable & breathable sleeping surface

A Belgian damask cover is a type of decorative fabric that is typically used to cover mattresses. It is usually made from linen or cotton and is characterised by its intricate patterns and designs.

Double sided mattress – flip seasonally so you sleep well whatever the weather

A double sided mattress is a mattress that can be used on both sides. This type of mattress is often more durable than a single sided mattress because it can be flipped over and used on the other side by following manufacture recommended timeframes. 

Seasonal comfort layers – cosy wool layer for the cooler months & a recycled breathable layer for the warmer months

A double sided mattress is a mattress that can be used on both sides. This type of mattress is often more durable than a single sided mattress because it can be flipped over and used on the either side to prolong lifespan. Whats more, this particular model comes with a different comfort layer on either side to keep you cool, or warm as you sleep.

Tufted mattress - for added firmness and durability

Tufted mattresses are great because the tufts tie the outer casing of the mattress into the springs, same too with comfort layers. The result is a tighter mattress which keeps everything together, however, an additional degree of firmness does result.

Comfort rating - Firm (also available in Extra Firm as the Fleurette Ortho Backcare)

A firm comfort rating is ideal for back sleepers who value more push-back from their base layer. The result is a resistive support that suits average BMI or heavier with a view to improve or alleviate back and neck pain. Side sleepers might find this tension to be too firm for the hip and shoulder to sink sufficiently.

Free 5 Year Guarantee - for total peace of mind

A 5 year guarantee goes far beyond the average offered in an industry plagued by 1-year mandatory minimums. What's more, the average life expectancy of mattresses comes in at around 7 years meaning you get almost full lifetime coverage with this sort of guarantee.

Quality assured - made in Britain

British made products adhere to strict quality control standards and are often made and manufactured locally which gives for a faster and more seamless logistical and delivery experience.
