I spent a long time choosing a mattress, insecure about quality and durability of so many. Have had this Hyde and Sleep Extra Firm Hybrid mattress for two weeks and love it. No chemical odour. It is very firm and has only softened very slightly (Hyde and Sleep Hybrid mattresses are available in a range of firmness, I chose the firmest). Have partially prolapsed discs in my lower spine and this mattress is so comfortable and supportive that I genuinely love lying on it. Both my backache and sleep have improved. It terms of temperature regulation, I find it just right; it holds enough warmth for me to not get chilly, but not enough to overheat (but I am not an overly hot person). It would be nice if it had handles, which it doesn't. Also wish that it wasn't made of plastic, but most mattresses are.
Would be good to write another review in a years time to see how the mattress wears, but so far, would say that this is an excellent mattress.
I have never paid this much for a mattress before, but on consideration, although I think it a bit expensive, it is much better quality than other mattresses that I have had and I would buy it again. I purchased the Bed Cover Primary Insurance as well, which covers any damage or fault with the mattress for eight years.
Dreams have said, that all parts of their mattresses are recyclable, either via them when purchasing a new bed from them, or via the local Council recycling scheme.
