iGel Advance 2500 Plush Top Mattress Review

The iGel™ Advance 2500 Plush top Mattress from Bensons for Beds has been designed with the needs of modern sleepers in mind. With it's temperature-regulating technology that allows you to keep cool when it's hot and keep warm when it's cold, it's the perfect sleep aid for those who suffer from aches and pains in their joints. It also provides excellent support, thanks to its dual layer pocket springs encased in foam for premium support. The 2500 dual layer pocket springs provide comfort and durability, whilst the innovative iGel™ Advance beaded gel provides pressure relief and helps relieve aches and pains.

The mattress is also made with a more environmentally sustainable formula than your average foam mattresses. It's easy to care for too, as it's non-turn product, meaning that you can rotate the mattress every now and then but you can be less stringent than is typical. 

Being both antibacterial and hypoallergenic, this is the mattress to have if you suffer from allergies. Same too for the environmentally conscious, featuring  second life textiles and 100% recycled PET.

Honestly, 2500 pocket springs, multiple firmness options and a unique iGel comfort layer is the complete package that you can get within a mattress, throw in a unheard of 10 year guarantee for free as standard and you won't need to look elsewhere for your next mattress because this is it.

Reviews for the iGel™ Advance 2500 are really quite good, with an impressive and consistent flurry of positive reviews coming in for the new mattress. Reviews make mention of how well made the product us with others pointing to the extreme comfort and great nights sleep they are having. One customer even makes mention of how they are now waking up fully refreshed and without any aches and pains. Negative reviews are far rarer but there does seem to be a couple around the tension offered within the soft model, with one or two mentioning that it felt far from soft. This is fairly typical for an over-the-web purchase on something as subjective as firmness and not something we would really be concerned about given the vast amount of otherwise positive and happy customers.

Reasons to Buy

Topping the iGel lineup, this mattress has an impressive 10 year guarantee.

2500 premium pocket springs are market leading.

iGel technology offers a cooling and temperature regulating alternative to traditional memory foam.

Reasons to Avoid

Price point prices out a number of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. While not really a con, you really do get what you pay for in this instance.

What Makes The iGel Advance 2500 Plush Top Mattress Great?

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.

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.

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: Soft, Medium & Firm

A mattress that’s right for you can help you get a better night’s sleep! This mattress is designed with your comfort in mind with three firmness ratings: Soft, Medium and Firm. Choose the one that feels best for you and your body type.

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.

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.

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.

Quilted plush 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.

Optional plain or coloured boarder to match top pattern

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

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 Plush Top Mattress

We had a natural fibre sprung pocket spring mattress that had become so uncomfortable yet only 4 years old. Both me and my wife would wake up with backache. Having moved house we thought it was time to invest in a new bed. We tried loads of different shops and different beds. We went for the Igel advance 2500 as so glad we did. It is the most comfortable bed weve ever slept in (all be it, its only been a few weeks yet) we both sleep soundly and in comfort.

5

We have had the mattress now for a month and can not praise the comfort or quality enough, It has changed how we sleep and we are very happy with it. It is definitely worth paying the extra and getting the best you can afford. Absolutely love the mattress. Benson for beds were really helpful. The staff were polite and never pushy. They left us to try out the different styles but we're always close to hand when needed. Can not fault them. Many thanks

5

First night was not great, in the morning my husband and I experienced aches and pain. Second night morning after was better. As the nights progressed the bed became more comfortable. After 1 week we agreed it was the most comfortable bed we have ever had. We had the soft option and 100% made the right choice after trying several mattresses in store. Good quality made and we feel will be long lasting. Very happy with mattress.

5

I'm very happy with my new mattress. Really good quality and so comfortable. It was worth every penny. And I have to say Benson for Beds were very good to deal with, from the sales lady, who was friendly and helpful but not pushie, to the regular text messages regarding the delivery date. Everything was done very professionally. Highly recommended.

5

The quality and comfort of this mattress is exceptional. Not cheap, but worth paying more for what I think is one of the most important purchases you can make , a good bed ! I'm in my sixties and used to sell beds for a living many years ago, so I think I know a good mattress when I lie on one. This is the best one ever!

4

very thick mattress, the Wife loves it, it certainly helps with her sleeping. it might be a bit on the soft side for me but it is very comfortable. only practical problem so far is due to how thick the mattress is the mattress protector and bedsheet are always coming off so need to pin them down

5

Great sales service in comparing Mattress types to make the right decision. Delivery was spot on time and was delivered upstairs with ease. All in all a great buy. Mattress feels great but were still on our 40 day return policy. Currently theres no issues to send it back as its great.

4

We wanted to stay away from foam matresses as the heat they generate can be uncomfortable. We were assured that the newer iGel mattress was designed to keep you cool by dispersing your body heat. It still holds more heat than a standard spring matress but not excessively uncomfortable.

5

I am delighted with this excellent mattress. Very comfortable, especially if on the heavier side! Superb edge support and little or no transfer of movement to my partner when I turn over. Delivery service was faultless, comms from Bensons always helpful. Highly recommended.

5

Oh my goodness after buying several mattresses in the bid for a pain free nights sleep. We have found the perfect one we both sleep soundly and I can finally sleep on my side again without lots of pillows. Truly feels like a hug when you lay down on it.

4

We bought due to me being always cold in bed, and husband always very warm... honestly don't feel the mattress actually aids in cooling/keeping warm. very comfortable but not living up to what the adviser said review wise.

5

The mattress is still new so time may tell, but it is really comfortable and seems to be good quality. Value for money is more of a subjective subject and all mattresses seem overly expensive in my opinion.

3

The mattress which tryed in the shop felt great, very comfortable. This mattress doesnt feel the same. Some nights cant get comfortable and every week we turn the mattress which they tell us to do

3

Retaining screws to hold both halves of the bed together poorly fitting; fabric overlaid pre drilled holes should be trimmed out before delivery. The fabric blocks the threaded bolts threads.

5

This is the second igel mattress we have. Its a Soft. For us that works very well. Doesnt heat up like some new mattresses. The combination of springs and memory foam is excellent.

5

Very comfortable mattress - firm support from the springs with a layer of softer foam on top for a little bit more comfort. Not a cheap mattress, but worth every penny.

5

Did exactly as promised - great night sleep and no Back Ache when you wake up! Not sure if the iGel is cooling though - time will tell when the weather gets warmer!

4

5

Needed a bed with comfort but support for my back. Can't believe the difference when I wake up. I had the medium option, through advice on the body scanner.
