Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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.

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.

What Makes The iGel Advance 3000i Pillow Top Mattress Great?

Luxurious pillowtop layer – for indulgent surface comfort?

Pillow top mattresses offer a number of benefits, chief among them being an extra layer of cushioning and support. This can be especially beneficial for side sleepers, as it can help to reduce pressure points and provide added comfort. The additional padding on a pillow top mattress can also help to reduce pain and discomfort thanks to the reduced pressure mentioned above.

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.

3000 premium pocketed springs - for individual comfort and support, with reduced partner disturbance

When it comes to pocket springs, the higher the number generally the better. See, the more springs you have in a confined area, the better contouring and support you will get in that area. 3000 springs is toward the top end and will give premium support that will react to each of your movements.

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 – 33cm

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. 33cm 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.
