Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

We recently reviewed the alternative model to this one featuring the pillow top. This one comes in slightly different with a plush top and so today we will be talking about the difference and the benefits of buying this great product. Fortunately the core mechanics of the iGel Advance 3000 stay the same making it a great mattress for all types of sleepers. It has a comfortable, cooling design with targeted support thanks to those luxurious and plentiful pocket springs. What’s more there is additional durability that comes with pocket springs over traditional open coil springs, making it a great investment that will last a considerable period (hence the 10 year guarantee as standard). 

So what is the difference between this model and the pillow top model? A pillow top mattress is a type of mattress that has an extra layer of padding sewn into the top of the bed while a plush top mattress is a type of mattress that has an especially thick layer of padding on top. The extra padding on a pillow top mattress is a bit more moderate than the extra padding on a plush top mattress and so if you really want a mattress that is extra thick and soft, you will probably want a plush top mattress. 

But who else is the product suitable for? To start the iGel Advance 3000i  Plush Top is great for people who are sensitive to heat. It has open-cell technology that allows air to circulate throughout the mattress, keeping you cool and comfortable while the graphene infused memory foam reports to be 7 times better at keeping you cool over traditional memory foam. The iGel Advance 3000i is also great for people who want targeted support as the 3000 springs work with the gel foam comfort layer to give a plush feel that cradles you with a supportive hug. Finally you have the medium tension designation against the product, this gives maximum suitability as the firmness on display works for back sleepers and side sleepers a-like. 

Who won’t enjoy this mattress? It’s difficult to say, iGel as a brand has got so many things right with this product that there isn’t much left to really be able to criticise. We’re not just saying that either, but when you pair 3000 pocket springs with an advanced high-performance better-than-memory-foam layer, you get a degree of satisfaction that is difficult to dissuade against. The one barrier we would say is around the price point, it’s one that alienates many of those invested in buying a product like this and will leave many in the budget and mid-range sectors missing out on experiencing it.

The overarching benefits of this and the pillow top model are the same, you get an impressive guarantee that beats off many of the sub-bar offerings in the rest of the industry. Same too with the choice of spring system and even the cover with its unique FreshNow™ moisture wicking component adds to what is a great experience.

Reviews for the iGel Advance 3000i Plush Top Mattress won’t come in for a few more weeks as this is a brand new model at time of writing. That said though, we’ve seen this configuration before and it performs exceptionally well in all typical circumstances. It’s a shame the barrier for entry and cost-to-play is so high in this instance as I have very little doubt this mattress can improve most peoples nights sleep.

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.
  • 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.


  • 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 Plush Top Mattress Great?

Luxuriously indulgent plushtop layer – for optimum levels of surface comfort?

The plushtop layer gives enhanced comfort over traditional comfort layers. Think of a plushtop as the ultimate in comfort layer, deeper than most other rivals and luxuriously soft, plush tops have surpassed pillow tops in quality and convenience.

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 – 32cm

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. 32cm of depth is on the limit where you may require deep fitted sheets as part of your new bedding.

3 comfort choices – Soft, Mediumor Firm

There are a few key differences between soft, medium and firm mattresses. For starters, firm mattresses tend to be better for people with back pain, as they provide more support. Soft mattresses, on the other hand, are generally more comfortable and can be a good choice for people who don’t have back pain. Medium mattresses fall somewhere in between, and may be a good option for people who are unsure about which type of mattress to choose.

Easy Care – No turn mattress?

A no turn mattress basically means that it is one sided and does not require flipping over. There are pros and cons to this depending on your circumstance. First, the pros are that there is far less maintenance and hassle as you do not have to flip every few months, this can be more of a pain than you think given the weight of the product and also whether or not it features turning handles. There are a few cons however, namely when it comes to wear and tear. A non-flip mattress has the comfort layer on the top and so your maximum surface area is halved over a double sided mattress which can increase wear and reduce lifespan. Nowadays quality standards prevent this from being too much of an issue and expected lifespan of a one-sided mattress is still a fairly long time.

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.

Customer Reviews For The iGel Advance 3000i Plush Top Mattress

Based on 10 reviews

This mattress is so very comfortable; the best nights sleep we've had for a long time. it was quite a costly item even with the Black Friday discount but we believe pretty good value for the money. It's really too soon to comment on it's quality; it seems well made and well finished but only time will tell on the ultimate quality so have given 4 star initially.


This is easily the best mattress I have ever slept on, my back feels like new. I am 45 years old and have had lower back pain for the last decade or more. The igel 3000 has removed all of that and i am now sleeping so much better. Feel 20 years younger, highly recommend. long time for delivery though but worth it.
