iGel Advance 2000 Mattress Review

The iGel™ Advance 2000 Mattress features a premium, high-tech material at it's core: Graphene. When you sleep, the body releases lactic acid and carbon dioxide. This is the process that builds up muscle fatigue and creates wrinkles - which is why you want to have a mattress that can regulate temperature. The Graphene in iGel™ technology acts like a heat sink, absorbing the body's heat and transferring it to the surrounding air.

As a result, your skin will feel cooler and more comfortable all night long. The technology also works in reverse: when you sleep on an iGel™-enabled mattress, the mattress cools down, absorbing your body's heat and circulating it through the mattress with every movement. As a result, your body will stay cool and fresh throughout the night. As well as regulating temperature, iGel™ technology helps provide pressure relief against aches and pains so you can get to sleep faster.

This technology is unique to the iGel range and isn't available elsewhere. Further to the impressive iGel on offer, you also get an impressive 2000 pocket springs that are better than traditional open coil springs found in lesser quality mattresses. With pocket springs, the more the better with 1000 being typical for most mattresses. More springs does not equate to a firmer mattress, rather, just better body contouring and support.

In this instance, the iGel Advance 2000 Mattress is a firm mattress, making it ideal for those looking for something that is soft (thanks to the iGel) yet firm (thank to the pocket springs specified tension). Best suited to those looking for orthopaedic support but also suitable for others that want something slightly firmer than average.

What Makes The iGel Advance 2000 Mattress Great?

Mattress height: 27cm

27cm is quite deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep

Easy care non-turn mattress, rotate occasionally

Non turn mattresses basically mean that the mattress is one sided, this means that the fillings and topper are only on one side so make sure when you first receive the mattress that you put the comfortable side on top otherwise you will have a very uncomfortable sleep. Take note however, a non-turn mattress should still be rotated frequently to prevent the common dip that you may otherwise get from sleeping in the same position over time.

Handles on all sides to aid rotation

Rotating a mattress can actually be a bit of a pain without help and support. That's why we've included some handy-handles to make the job a little easier. Mattresses average around 35-40kg, without handles you sort of have to do that weird third-arm with your head thing that is both unflattering and fairly useless. Trust us, get handles.

2000 pocket springs encased in foam for premium support

Typically, the more springs the better. The average mattress has around 1000 springs and so anything more than that is considered good. The firmness/tension of a mattress is also not dictated by the amount of springs and so you do not need to worry about the firmness being unsuitable when it comes to spring count. Simply the more springs, the better the mattress can contour to your body. 2000 springs is considered great.

AdvantEdge™ - provides premium edge support

Surrounding the mattress is what has been aptly dubbed the AdvantEdge™ foam. This works along side the mattresses springs to offer far better edge to edge support over traditional mattresses with standard rod edge support. The main benefit of this product means that roll-together is prevented alongside roll-off providing an even and measured experience no matter which point of the mattress you are sleeping on.

Vivatex™ safe, soft and greener fillings & fabric

Vivatex™ is used in this mattresses fillings and fabrics and provides a safe hypoallergenic sleep that will be both soft and comfortable while reducing the chance of any additional allergies.

Antibacterial and hypoallergenic

This means that the mattress will be unlikely to cause irritation or allergies when in use due to the materials used in the make-up of the mattress.

iGel™ temperature-regulating mattress with Graphene technology

iGel is a fairly new material for use in mattresses, surpassing memory foam in temperature regulation while providing many of the same qualities that make it a great choice for those looking for a premium comfort layer.Gels temperature regulating properties are not the only stand out feature, the popular comfort layer also has great temperature regulation and is naturally hypoallergenic.

Firmness rating: Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

Free full 10-year guarantee

The average mattress lifespan is 7 years. The average guarantee is normally 1 year. These 2 numbers often do not get close to each other, however, this mattress comes with an amazing 10 year guarantee that should last the entire lifetime of the mattress protecting you from any problems that would crop up in that period.

I have a better nights sleep since getting this mattress - 5 star. However we had this mattress a short while and its beginning to sag. There is a clear defining line between my hubby and me.I am overweight so that could be the reason- but I don't want it to become like our old mattress so saggy on my side that I had problems getting out of bed because my body hurt so much. hence 3 stars for quality and value for money However -don't be put off. This is a very comfortable mattress and I have slept better since getting it.

4

the mattress when it eventually came was just as good as i had anticipated. however I was must dissatisfied with the customer service. my mattress was due to be delivered mid Nov on the anticipated delivery date which was due between 7am and 6pm I recieved a phone call at 9.15 on the day to say my mattress would not be delivered that day and the date was now 18th December which was 4 months after my order was placed!!!!

5

I cant recommend this mattress enough. I have been a light sleeper for years suffering from menopausal overheating and waking early. Also disturbed by my husbands snoring! This mattress has been a life-changer - I sleep through everything, even a disturbance in the street outside which my neighbours messaged about. I dream every night. And its as if my husband has stopped snoring. Incredible!

5

Beautiful mattress! Went for the firm option as our old firm mattress from a well know Swedish shop was awful. It is pricey but worth it for the amount of time you spend asleep. If you want a firm mattress that still feels luxurious this is great. I haven't been waking up with lower back pain and not waking up as frequently.

5

This is a very good mattress. So comfortable and the quality is great (will see how it performs over time) The mattress is excellent if you sleep with someone else who moves alot. The mattress does not move and disturb the other person which is great. The top layer of the mattress is really supportive in any sleep position

5

I bought this type of mattress when they first came out for my own bed and would not recommend any other. I bought this for my sons bed after having a memory foam one that only lasted a few months which came with his old bed and when I bought a new bed definately had to have a i gel as I know that this will last.

5

This bed is how dreams are made!!! So comfy whatever the weather it be cold or hot. We bought one of these mattresses 3 years ago & when my daughters bed needed replacing the first thing we did was call Bensons to see if they still had our 3 year old mattress in stock. Please dont ever stop making these!!!

3

It's too early to give a five star review about this mattress. My partner is more comfortable on it than I am. I find it a bit 'squidgy', so I've put a woollen topper on it to make it a tad firmer. Perhaps I'll take that off one day and get used to the mattress. Otherwise, really well made.

5

Since delivery I have had some of the best night's sleep I have had in years on this mattress. Also to add the 'not too hot and not too cold' feature of the iGel mattress certainly is amazing. Mattresses and shoes. If your not in one, your in the other..... make a good purchase.

5

The delivery was well organized from the moment it was ordered We were contacted in the week and day before delivery The delivery guys were helpful and polite The mattress is superb comfy and perfect The pillows are brilliant we both slept on our side and they are great

3

The bed is very comfortable but Im not convinced the iGel is doing its job. Even with a summer quilt on in November the mattress seems very hot, not keeping our bodies cool as advertised. Im wondering what it will be like in the summer.

5

This mattress is superb cant fault my only fault is that bensons had a bank holiday offer on with 10 percent discount one day after purchase spending over £1100 very disappointed the staff didnt inform us?! ˜¹ï¸

4

This is the second mattress we have had in a couple of weeks. The first was for the guest room this was for ourselves. I have found this mattress most comfortable, and has helped with my back issues I would recommend

5

Bed is quite high but extremely comfortable. The gel makes it very warm. Got it in Autumn so hopefully will be cool in the summer, so cannot comment on that aspect. Expensive but well worth the money.

4

So far so good. Aches and pains seem to have eased from the first night of using this mattress. Its very heavy so can be a struggle to turn it if you dont have help. Would definitely recommend

4

Very comfy, only niggle is the top angles in a bit much so you lose about 1/2 inch width on the top of the mattress. So move to the edge and you feel (just a little) like you are going to roll out.

4

Great mattress so comfortable, only thing I would say is I'm not feeling as cool as I thought I would be on these warm nights. However when it's a chilly evening the mattress is fantastic!

5

The mattress is very comfortable and all we expected. Just we paid in full, so did not take out the so called free credit, but were not offered any discount on the mattress purchase price

5

Weve only had the mattress for a few weeks so cant speak about longevity, but it is comfortable and as wed hoped. I just have to find nice deep fitted sheets now haha

5

At first it seemed a bit too firm but after a couple of nights soon settled in. I do feel the temperature regulation is not as good as I hoped. In the whole very pleased.

5

A relatively expensive bed but after 2 weeks , with turning the mattress each week, the bed is really comfortable. We have the firm and sleep soundly and comfortably.

5

The mattress is very comfortable and the design is subtle and classic. It was an expensive purchase that has since been reduced in price. But happy with the quality.

5

Fantastic product, so comfortable! only little thing is we have hard wood floors and the wheels makes it roll so easily my toddler can push it across the room!

4

Early days for a proper assessment of this particular product but certainly the indication is that we have made a good investment in our choice of beds so far.

5

Only had the mattress for a few weeks, but everything seems fine. Comfort and stability, product seems well made as one would expect at this price range.

5
