Why our sleep experts loved it
When it comes to buying a new mattress, the process can feel pretty overwhelming. There are so many different types of mattresses available, with myriad features and price points. How do you know which one is right for you? Enter the iGel Advance 3000i Pillow Top Mattress, a product from the popular iGel brand that has mass market appeal thanks to a Goldilocks-style tension that will suit almost everyone to some degree.
The iGel technology is made up of different layers of gel memory foam with cooling graphene that all come together to create a unique experience that has many of the benefits of traditional memory foam products, but without the downsides of heat buildup. The result is a premium mattress that performs exceptionally in many circumstances.
So who exactly will this mattress suit? Thanks to the high quality pocket springs in the support layer coming in at a respectable medium tension, the answer really is most people. See medium tensions in this quality have enough support for back and stomach sleepers who require a bit of additional responsiveness for back and neck pain. Meanwhile that said tension has enough flexibility and sinkage to mean that side sleepers are able to lay flat without feeling like they are sleeping on the mattress rather than in it. This is because medium tension pocket springs offer enough depression to ensure the hip and shoulder are well-placed when sleeping on your side. Combine the above with the advanced graphene memory foam and you get 7 times faster heat transfer than standard memory foam while retaining all of its other benefits. I cannot speak highly enough of iGel technology as it is one we have personally reviewed a few times over the years to great effect.
But what about who this product won’t suit? Those on a budget will struggle to find this mattress at a price point that will appease. Unfortunately for some, iGel mattresses fit in the premium segment and while you may occasionally see sales and offers that take specific models into the mid-range pricing, it’s not going to be affordable for some. There are finance options available through the primary retailer (Bensons for Beds) that will give some degree of flexibility on this front, but it’s largely a premium mattress for a premium audience.
There are other benefits worthy of discussion also, from the impressive and market-leading 10-year guarantee through to the FreshNow™ cover that induces wicking properties to help with moisture. The result is a cleaner and healthier sleep that will last for many years to come.
Reviews for the iGel Advance 3000i Pillow Top Mattress are still coming in as it is a brand new model however, we have personally trialled the iGel mattresses previously and find them to be an absolute delight in all testing. The technology that is unique to iGel and in this mattress comes in a few other varieties that have performed exceptionally well and have long standing positive customer reviews. The 3000 in this model represents the amount of springs with the more generally being the better. As such, this model sits at the top of the range.
