Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

The iGel™ Advance 2050i 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 2050 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 2050i Mattress is a medium tension mattress, making it ideal for those looking for something that is soft (thanks to the iGel) yet firmer (thank to the pocket springs specified tension). Best suited to those looking for an all rounder that will satisfy both side sleepers and back sleepers alike.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark
Of The iGel Advance 2050i Mattress
Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

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.


*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.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • 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.


  • 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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The iGel Advance 2050i Mattress Great?

Powered by a deep 5cm of iGel™ Advance Graphene Technology – intelligent temperature regulation helps you sleep not too hot, not too cold, just right

50mm of gel foam is considerably higher than the amount of foam provided in poorer quality imitations and means you get a huge degree of softness in the comfort layer that protects you from the firmer springs underneath. The result is that you sink deeper and feel more cocooned while you sleep.

iGel™ Advance Graphene - 7 times faster heat transfer than standard foam, Graphene is cleaner than synthetic additives

The biggest downside to traditional memory foam is around heat retention. The iGel graphene is a unique design that sees better performance and enhanced cooling via the heat transfer over standard foam.

iGel™ Advance intelligent temperature regulation - proven to absorb, store and release heat to help you remain at the ideal sleep temperature – within the 35° to 37° Celsius comfort zone

iGel isn't just about being 7 times better for heat regulation over memory foam, it's also about the intelligent temperature regulation beyond that. See, being too cold can be just as disruptive as being too hot. Fortunately, the iGel formula keeps you at a temperature that promotes deep sleep consistantly.

Nothing feels quite this good - with iGel™ Advance patented know-how, exclusively at Bensons for Beds, we’ve perfected a feel that’s like nothing else

iGel Advance is the name for the new range of iGel mattresses, all of which feature graphene gel foam materials that perform similar to memory foam but without many of the downsides around heat retention and heat build up.

Opulent super loft and super soft stretch-knit cover - luxuriously soft and breathable, with eye-catching centre panel design

Soft and stretch knit covers are standard for many of the mattresses you see today. The benefit being that the breathable design ensures you remain cool while you sleep which means less sweat followed by a more hygienic nights sleep.

2050 premium pocketed springs - for individual comfort and support, with reduced partner disturbance

2050 pocket springs is a healthy amount that will give sufficient body contouring regardless of how you sleep. The more springs generally the better with 1000 being the standard often seen in min range mattresses.

AdvantEdge™ superior edge support – premium support along the edge of the mattress, for added durability and to increase the mattress sleeping area

Unique to iGel mattresses, the AdvantEdge™ platform is available in part thanks to the premium pocket spring system housed within. With additional edge support, you get a firmer edge regardless of tension meaning you are able to spread yourself over each and every inch of the mattress allowing you to utilise more of the product and spread out while you sleep.

Soothing and supportive pressure relief - iGel™ Advance can help reduce aches and pains, with pressure relieving Gel crystals for targeted support where your body needs it most

Another on the benefits of the iGel Advance range. The combination of high quality pocket springs paired with high quality gel foam gives zonal support that targets each area of your body wit individual contouring and adjustment. The result is that no part of your body that is making contact with the mattress is going to be without contrasting pressure and support.

FreshNow™ advanced moisture wicking - helps to prevent waking caused by humidity, for an all-night fresher feel

New to the range but growing in popularity comes the new FreshNow™ material utilised in many of the more premium mattresses from this retailer. The FreshNow™ remains soft and luxurious to the touch but features additional moisture wicking features that will keep you cool while you sleep.

iPure™ - our cleanest formula foams and fibres, with more recycled PET polyester fibre content (80%), and fewer synthetic additives

Specific to the iGel range,  the mattress is CertiPur™ accredited thanks to the iPure™ mattress construction which features significant polyester fibre content that is cleaner than competing products, made up of loss synthetic additives that make for one of the cleanest formula foams and fibres available.

In partnership with the BCA (British Chiropractic Association) - the largest and longest established association for chiropractors in the United Kingdom

A BCA partnership helps to highlight the quality of the support layer on offer in this mattress. A BCA partnership helps highlight that the mattress has been designed and tested to chiropractor standards resulting in better back and neck support.

Mattress depth – 31cm

Good quality mattresses are often deeper as they require more space for deep fillings and good quality support layers. While the correlation is not a one to one relationship, it certainly helps. 31cm of depth is on the limit where you may require deep fitted sheets as part of your new bedding.

2 comfort choices – Mediumor Firm

Medium tension mattresses would suit back and side sleepers most typically while firmer tension mattresses offer better back and neck support. For the average weighted person, medium is a safe bet unless you enjoy the feeling of extra support.

Easy care – no turn mattress?

No turn mattresses are basically single sided mattresses where the comfort layer is only on one side. No turn mattresses have their benefits, namely in reduced maintenance since flipping is not required. It is however still recommended to rotate your mattress regardless of easy care or not.

Free 10 year guarantee – for total peace of mind?

A 10 year guarantee shows just how much faith a manufacturer and retailer have in their product. The industry is still plagued by far too many 1-year guarantees and this one helps highlight a change toward better standards and consumer confidence.

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 2050i Mattress

Based on 46 reviews

Both my wife and I are very pleased with our new mattress. The quality and comfort it provides is second to none. We would not hesitate to recommend Igel mattresses and the team at the Dartford shop of Benson's for Bed's.


Best mattress we've ever bought! We go to bed earlier just so that we can relax on this wonderful mattress! We have to drag ourselves out of bed in the mornings as we could easily stay in bed haha.


Desperately sad to have to replace my old comfy mattress but I was advised to try this mattress and so pleased I did. Its the ultimate in comfort and support. No more waking up with a bad back.


Comfortable and supportive, as it says on the tin... Not to hot or too cold. Would recommend to anyone with back pain as me and my partner had before we bought it
