Pros & Cons

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and a decade of industry insight.

Material is soft throughout and fairly breathable.

Comfortable and supportive suiting both back and side sleepers.

Good value for money, what you don't get in a named brand is more than made up for in higher quality materials.

Memory foam provides good quality and deep comfort.

Supportive without being too firm.

Great thickness and firm support.

Quite firm for some people, although it does soften over time.

Some may prefer a bit more give in the mattress although still suitable for most side sleepers.

Why our sleep experts loved it

Many of the mattresses that I review are ones that I have gone to a store and tried out, other times I make a best judgement based on the specifications and reviews accumulated against products. Not in this instance however, this is my mattress and one that I have owned for the last couple of years. I have slept on it every night and can give genuine insight into suitability. 

Let's start with the support layer, this layer comes in the form of 1500 firm pocket springs that mould to your every movement. They are of extremely good quality, they do not creak or grown or make any noise whatsoever, but, they are firm and depending on your body type and personal preference will determine whether this is suitable or not.  

The comfort layer comes with a massive 75mm of memory foam. Did you know a large chunk of "memory foam" mattresses have as little as a 20mm layer of foam? 75mm is huge and you cannot feel any of the individual springs underneath the foam at all.

When it comes to preference, I really like this mattress both as a side sleeper and a back sleeper. However, my partner found it slightly too firm and insists a softer mattress would be more suitable for side sleeping when you have a bit of a "booty" and hourglass figure as the sinking feeling of the memory foam is slightly subdued with the firmness of the springs. Do not let any of that take away from what is a beautiful mattress that is supremely well made. 

Pay for room of choice delivery over delivery to the front door because this thing is really, really heavy. My partner and I spent 20 minutes and a lot of sweat getting it up a relatively small flight of stairs, pay the extra few quid and let someone else handle it.

Quantitative Measurements KPI question mark

Here's how the product performs based on the materials and composition when compared to other products of similar price point. These measurements are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algorithmic data points and our own hands on experience.

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.

Performance

  • 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

Odour

  • 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.

A firm but flexible mattress that supports one well in any position.Being a mature and elderly person this is so good to be able to not have to bend too far to lay down at night. Similarly, it is so easy to stretch out and also to get up in complete ease.Would recommend for the price and comfort.

Really happy with my mattress, very sold and firm with just the right amount of give. Contours to my body perfectly without being soft like my old mattress. My lower back ache is nearly gone and feeling ready for day when I wake up. Highly recommend if you're after a slightly firmer mattress.

I chose this mattress as Which said it had good support for side sleepers but was also soft. I had tried both Emma and Eve mattresses but my wife and I found them too firm. This seems just right for us both.
