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.

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.
  • 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 3000 Plush 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.

3000 pocket springs encased in foam for premium support

Pocket springs are probably the best support layer you can get in a mattress helping to provide measured and even support across your body where you need it most. What's more, the unique feeling of pocket springs hugs each point of your body, offering contouring across each pressure point to relieve aches and pains. Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.

7.5cm 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 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 border to match top pattern

Mattress height: 35cm

35cm of depth is not in itself a good enough indicator of quality to blindly state one way or another. That said, generally speaking, deeper mattresses tend to be that way due to the excess of deep comfort layers which is typically a good thing. 35cm is right on the edge of requiring more specialist deep sheets which can be found alongside normal sheets in most stores.

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 3000 Plush Top Mattress

Based on 149 reviews
4

After sleeping on the mattress, which is definitely more comfortable than our old one, we will be requesting an exchange for the extra firm because the firm that we ordered is just not firm enough. I must say though, that I am disappointed in the after sales customer care. At delivery we realised that the wrong pillows were put n the order form, which I did not pick up at the time of the order. When I called the shop, I was told that they can't do exchanges in the shop and that I would have to pay 10 extra per pillow becuase the special was over. I know which pillows I ordered at the time of the order and I believe that the wrong pillows were deliberately put on the order and if caught at the time would have been corrected, but because I only caught it after delivery, I was told I would have to pay more. I think the customer service like this after such is big order is disappointing. 2 stars for that.

Im glad to write this review 3 weeks after delivery of my new mattress. Initially, I found it much firmer (purchased medium firmness) than the one tried in the showroom. In fact, I did not like it after first nights sleep and then after 3 nights wanted to return it! But after some research I decided to persevere. According to some experts advice new mattresses require breaking in just like a pair of new shoes. My body got used to the old memory foam unsupportive mattress, hence why the new one felt so awfully uncomfortable. Im somewhat perplexed why the staff wouldnt explain/mention this?! So to summarise, my new mattress is absolutely amazing. I wake up feeling refreshed, with no aches, pain or stiffness in the lower back. I would highly recommended - but please give it a chance before you decide its not right for you. Its well worth it!

4

The igel 3000 pocket mattress so far so good but only couple of weeks in, the tempur comfort pillow fantastic keeps shape and is very comfortable the igel pillow very very disappointed.so uncomfortable my neck and shoulders hurt so stopped using it after 5 days. It also needed plumping every day complete waste of money wished wed gotten two of the new tempur Comfort pillows

3

Bought a firm mattress with igel topper as I'm medium and my partner likes a firm mattress. I tried the bed in the shop and it felt fine. When the 2 of us got in it once it had been delivered, the topper felt really soft and we both rolled into the middle. Every time one of us moved, the whole mattress moved. Both ended with bad backs. If I could return I definitely would.

4

After 2 weeks on our new mattress, it is evidently more comfortable than our previous (memory foam type) one and the 2 other memory foam ones we tried. We have been sleeping better as a result. It is probably to soon to make sweeping claims about it's comfort but I suspect that most people would enjoy it. The quaity of the item is excellenet.

5

Wonderful and so comfortable, it is a joy to sleep on. I have spinal problems and this mattress really does help me with pain, to get a better night's sleep. Only draw back I had to buy new bottom fitted sheets, due to the depth of the mattress at 35 CMS. Also makes the bed quite high, but easier to get in and out of in my opinion.

5

Amazing, comfortable best nights sleep. Had my new igel mattress for two weeks now and so thrilled with how comfortable it is to sleep on. Have back problems so went with the firm mattress. Mattress is a bit on the dear side but so worth it. It's a bit high for me, but knew that when purchased. Husband and dog both happy too;)

5

For the first few nights it was uncomfortable but please be assured once you become accustomed to your mattress, you'll want to be in it all the time. It's comfortable and pain reducing and encourages a better night's sleep. Be warned though if moving this mattress it's super heavy.

5

This bed is very expensive but it is extremely comfortable. It looks great too. Very high but we do like that. The 4 draws are roomy. Also bought the pillows matched to our sleep positioning. Sound night's sleep from day one. Very happy with my purchase.

5

Fabulous!!! So comfortable, my husband is a restless sleeper and I usually feel every move, but with 3000 springs in the mattress, I dont. And being a lady of a certain age, the igel mattress helps me with my flushes. Highly recommend spending the extra

4

The mattress is very comfortable and of very good quality, but is very deep, which means you need the appropriate sheets and mattress protector. Extra costs if you have to buy these as well. There is some slight movement felt when partner gets up.

5

The mattress is very comfortable, only had it 3 weeks, however our back and neck issues have improved no end. We also bought the back sleeper pillows to go with the mattress. It is not cheap, but well worth the money

5
