The Harris Traditional Spring Mattress is ideal for those looking for a firm yet comfortable luxury mattress with a low budget. Produced as part of The Dreams Workshop collection, an internal brand sold exclusively through Dreams, this is one of the bestselling in the range and one that has some of the highest reviews across the industry, scoring an impressive 92% in the happiness index with over 2000 reviews to date.
This is one of the better selling mattresses in the range due to it’s expert craftsmanship and great value components. It’s important to remember that a firm mattress does not correlate to comfort. The comfort layer in this mattress comes in the form of soft fillings, of which there is a generous amount padded to work alongside the support layer for a great culmination of comfort and support.
These fillings are both deep and luxurious while providing a degree of breathability which will help ensure that you do not get too hot or cold while you sleep, important for hygiene but also critical to getting good REM sleep.
The firm rating offered through the support layer of the mattress means that you will get an adequate amount of tension proving ideal for back sleepers and front sleepers alike. Those who sleep on their side may want to consider a medium tension mattress unless they are of a higher BMI or equally just prefer the feeling of a firm supportive mattress.
Reviewers are very positive with many commenting favourably on the huge amount of value relative to such a reasonable price point. Others comment on the firmness and how it has proven to give a greater nights sleep toward those with back and neck pain. The only complaints we could find were around spring failure, causing springs to become improperly positioned and becoming uncomfortable. Fortunately this is a rare occurrence and is not reflective of the many thousands of positive reviews.
The Harris Traditional Spring Mattress is handmade within the UK and is part of the Dreams Workshop brand, replacing one of the most popular mattresses of the last decade, the Ashton Open Spring Mattress.
How does it feel?
Firmness of The Dreams Workshop Harris Traditional Spring Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.
Reasons to Buy
Plenty of great reviews from parents ordering for their children. The great price point and good support makes it ideal for children while also suiting adults on a budget.
All popular UK sizes available.
Cheapest full sized mattress in the range, but also one of the cheapest in the UK.
Reasons to Avoid
A few customer reports around the mattress being particularly "springy". This isn't inherently a problem as it shows the support layer is eager to bounce back and will thereby contour to your back as it sinks.
Reports that the firmness is reduced for those of a heavier variety. We wouldn't personally recommend a cheap mattress like the Harris for those with a heavier build as the springs will have to work much harder and while the product performs well, it is built to a budget.
