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.

Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • 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.

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

Mattress is very good. However, I purchased a Mattress Protector Perfect Partner' designed to compliment this mattress and upon opening it it said it was not to be used with an electric blanket. As I use an electric blanket all winter, it means this product (which cost 54.99) is useless for me. I would point out that this warning is on a label on the protector and nowhere on the packaging did it show this warning. I took it back to the shop but was told they could not refund or exchange for a diffent protector, because I had opened it. I explained that I had opened it in good faith, never expecting to see that warning. The Salesman rang a Manager in another store and the confirmed that because I had opened it, it could not be returned. The Salesman also rang Bensons Customer services, who said the same. I rang Customer Service myself and got absolutely nowhere. I was told by the person I spoke to that I could not speak to anyone in a higher position than him, as apparently that person does not exist! So, I have a 54.99 Mattress Protector, which is just about to go in the bin. I am shocked by Bensons after sale service. Whilst purchasing the bed and the mattress everyone was very pleasant and efficient. I suppose that is because I was spending 2000+ I have 60 days to return the bed if I don't like it. I am tempted to because of the incident with the mattress protector.

First week was probably a bit uncomfortable because we made the transit and the older one was softer, but now It's perfect , no back pain, no bad sleep, it's brilliant. I love it. I can't say it worths the money because for the UK wages at the moment a mattress like this should cost 100 and the others 50. Don't think is normal to pay monthly for a mattress, in couple of years we will make a loan for our weekly food shopping but anyway.. the review is about the mattress. Very comfortable and very solid I can say , you can jump on a side and the other side ia not going to move. Very good quality.

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 I've 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 haven't 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.

After discussing having sleepless night and suffer with a bad back, I had a lay on the mattress tester and then decided what level mattress we needed. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this mattress, it is unbelievably comfortable, its not soft that you feel your sinking, but it molds to you body so nice. My back and neck have been amazing (compared to before) since getting this matress. I love this mattress and sleep so much better at night. I have told so many people about it as it is just so so comfortable. Expensive but money definately well spent.

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 it's 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 didn't buy it sooner! Thank you Bensons!

Generally very satisfied.. Generally very satisfied.. The downside is not a criticism of the mattress itself, more the fact that I now have arthritis and the arthritis means it possibly lessens the otherwise improvement to my sleep.. My wife is certainly happy with the mattress. If you can come up with a mattress that also significantly improves/reduces arthritis pain then you will be on to a winner in my view! Thanks Steve.

We've needed a new mattress for some time, it's a big purchase so we shopped around & tried lots of mattresses within the Benson store. The igel was the clear option. A wonderful mattress, extremely comfortable, it has eradicated my back problems. The gel allows for a cool nights sleep, we haven't been too warm or overheated since. The pillows are a little firm & quite high but still very comfortable.

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.

Aside from the chemically smell which hasn't yet fully dissipated the mattress is fantastic! I've not slept so soundly in years. It is extremely comfortable, and good at absorbing movements which as shift workers is really handy. We are no longer woken by the other getting in or out of the bed at all hours of the night. So far so good. We have no complaints at all.

The best nights sleep I've had in years! We have had our mattress for one month now and I still get into bed every night to proclaim that it's the most comfortable bed I've 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*

The best nights sleep I've had in years. I ordered a Medium hardness because I wasn't too sure what would suit me and it was a drastic change from my old mattress for the better. It turned out to be a lot firmer than I think I would have chose if I had tried all 3, but it turns out to be the best decision I've made. Slept like a log every night since.

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.
