Overview

becky says

A perfect balance of comfort, support and technology. With the iGel™ Advance 2500 Pillow Top Mattress, you can rest easy knowing you are getting a mattress that is not only luxurious but also great for your health. The iGel™ temperature-regulating mattress with Graphene technology provides pressure relief, helping relieve aches and pains.

Graphene technology found in iGel Advance mattresses absorbs heat seven times more effectively than other mattresses and provides a cleaner, healthier sleep by dissipating heat away from the sleeper. 

With the 5cm of iGel™ Advance beaded gel for pressure relief, it provides 7 times better heat transfer (than standard memory foam). This ensures you keep a cool and comfortable sleep every night. The FreshNow™ moisture wicking makes sure your bed doesn't get damp and stays fresh all night long. 

The iGel brand is one that we know and love, being a popular staple of the Bensons for Beds lineup for a number of years and a fan favourite amassing thousands of reviews and happy customers. The Advance 2500 is more of the same, with over 90 reviews to date which make specific mention of the products depth, finding it offers amazing quality for the price point. Others talk of the amazing comfort and how it is like "sleeping in heaven".

Reasons to Buy

Amazing quality for price, no complaints around tension.

Great reviews, fantastic heat prevention resulting in a breathable mattress without getting sweaty.

Reasons to Avoid

The quality of the mattress means it is very thick. You may need deeper sheets than what you have currently.

Key Performance Indicators
Of The iGel Advance 2500 Pillow Top Mattress
Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

Key Performance Indicators

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.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard 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.

What Makes The iGel Advance 2500 Pillow Top Mattress Great?

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: Medium & 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.

Exclusive for Bensons for Beds

This is part of a wider range of mattresses made exclusively for Bensons for Beds meaning that you are not going to be able to find them elsewhere at present. We do have a partnership with Bensons for Beds that may see unique offers from time to time that may be exclusive to us.

2500 dual layer 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. 2500 springs is considered great.

5cm of iGel™ Advance beaded gel for pressure relief, helping relieve aches and pains

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

iGel™ Graphene technology provides 7 times better heat transfer

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.

FreshNow™ moisture wicking for an all-night fresher feel

FreshNow™ is a series of new covers that feature moisture wicking technology that are available in a wide array of different styles and colours.

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.

Contains second life textiles and 100% recycled PET

Recycling is at the forefront of this mattress and the textiles employed in the comfort layer and cover of the product, as such the materials used include those that have already had a previously life as another product. Common examples include water bottles and clothing that are repurposed and reworked to become something new that is both soft and durable.

Overall greener, safer, chemical free formula

Attention to detail has been at the forefront of many light facelifts within the mattress industry to date, and one of these comes in the form of new, green initiatives whereby the manufacturer has been able to create the same sleep experience in a safer and more chemical free manner, giving the consumer a greener mattress as a result.

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.

Quilted pillow top with attractive pattern design in 6 colourways

Unique to the iGel range comes the ability to have different designs and colour options for your mattress. I'm a big fan of iGel and find their mattresses to always be of high quality, however, your mattress will be covered by sheets and covers, my advice is to buy whichever has a earliest delivery lead time.

Mattress height: 31cm

31cm is considered deep for a mattress which is great news for those looking for comfort as there is plenty of room for good quality support layer and comfort layer within this depth of mattress. You may find the need to purchase a deeper fitted sheet, however, it is one that will make all the difference.

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 2500 Pillow Top Mattress

Based on 144 reviews
5

Quite different to my old mattress and I was conscious I could feel the pattern too much on the first night, however, within a few days Ive realised I have had unbroken sleep and feel so much better. I am no longer concerned about the pattern on the mattress, it is so comfortable, firm but with a soft topping that seems to mould to your shape and I havent been too hot like I usually am. I would recommend this mattress if you can afford to spend that little bit more; I value my sleep so feel the price is appropriate for the luxury comfort this mattress offers.

5

Our new iGel mattress is like sleeping in a luxury hotel bed! We absolutely love it! Super comfortable and we are over the moon with the quality - even the chap who came to build the divan was impressed! The mattress was double wrapped which according to the fitter is a sign that its top quality. It probably sounds a little dramatic but this new mattress has had such an impact on how we sleep and our only regret is that we didnt buy it sooner! Thank you Bensons!

3

The mattress is not a month old yet and I find it has started to dip in the middle already. So I tend to roll into the middle of the bed which I did not expect. However it is comfortable and the raised hight is great for getting in and out of bed. Quality of the make is good apart from the dip, as for value for money, yes it is probably good although not a cheap end of the market product.

5

The best nights sleep Ive had in years! We have had our mattress for one month now and I still get into bed every night to proclaim that its the most comfortable bed Ive ever slept in! I wake up fresh and well rested with no aches or pains anymore. The gel top really does keep your body at a comfortable temperature and moulds your shape perfectly. 5*

4

The mattress is a bit softer than I remember of the one we tried in store. I was getting suspicious that they may have supplied the wrong firmness. We tried a medium in store and it was quite comfortable. The one we now have is quite soft. It's hard work when you try and turn over in bed. Hopefully we'll get used to it in time.

5

After trying out numerous beds in the showroom we decided this one suited us both best. Staff weee knowledgable, we received regular texts regarding delivery which was on time and very pleasant delivery staff. Most importantly I have had the best nights sleep in years and my backache has gone

5

Excellent bed/ mattress combination giving much improved sleep. Pillows from same manufacturer, although expensive gave improved sleep from first night, so worth the investment. Sleeping in enjoyable with less disturbance, and often sleeping throughout the night.

5

Bought this mattress due to waking up with back pains, since having the mattress I havent had any back pain! Tried out atleast 10 - 15 mattresses but this was much much better than any other and well worth spending the extra money on! You get what you pay for!!

5

Well worth paying a bit extra for this mattress as it is so comfortable. Firm enough to give good support (no roll together) but the pillow top moulds to your sleeping position. Has greatly improved my sleep quality.

5

Excellent product. Was suffering with back, neck or hip pain from my old mattress since I got it this mattress I have not had any pain and sleeping better. Extreamly happy. Would highly recommend this mattress.

5

This is like sleeping in bed heaven. Wonderful very happy best nights sleep Ive had in years, not the cheapest mattress but hey you spend 1/2 your life in bed nearly . Love it and would highly recommend.

3

Unfortunately this mattress is nowhere near as firm as I expected. It dips a lot which I can imagine is only going to get worse. Moreover, it is excessively heavy. Sadly not worth the very high price point.

5

Mattress is very comfortable and so far great for my back. Bought the mattress protector to go with this it is very poor the material is very plastic and makes you sweat in my view not fit for purpose.

5

This bed supports you perfect its like your floating and it keeps you at the right temperature constantly its the best bed i have ever slept in and would recomend it to anyone who needs a great sleep

5

Lovely comfortable mattress especially as a side sleeper. Reduced the value for money but as mattresses that you cant feel the springs in always seem pricey to me! Probably is a good price though

3

The comfort is superb. However, only after 3 weeks. The middle part has sunken already. It doesnt seem to last very long compared to my old memory foam which made it expensive for the price.

5

This mattress is extremely comfortable, great for posture and heat dissipation. Excellent recommendation from staff. Well worth the money for a decent nights sleep.

4

I had a Tempur mattress but couldn't afford another new one. This i believe is the next best one. Super comfy, moulds into your back & pelvis which is what i need.

5

The wooden prongs at the back are quite flimsy for the weight of the headboard, otherwise the actual headboard Id well made. Really comfortable mattress

5

Super comfortable deep mattress, very good quality. Has improved the quality of our sleep. Excellent customer service and delivery. Would highly recommend.

5

The product gives you support and comfort. Helps aline your spine to the correct posture. Choosing the right pillow is also key. I have the Latex pillow.

4

I'm not sure yet but I'm getting there, after sleeping on a mattress that should have been changed sooner, I'm grateful for anything that's better! !!

5

Expensive but happy with the comfort and quality hopefully this will continue over a number of years and justify the cost and confirm value for money
