Why our sleep experts loved it

The Lynx Mattress can provide you with luxury comfort and support while you sleep thanks to its even coil distribution paired with comfortable upper layers featuring deep layers that will have you sinking into your mattress for a good night's sleep every night.

The open coil spring system in the Lynx and other open coil alternatives has an outer steel frame which provides stability and durability giving better edge support and maximising the surface area of usable space. Along with the spring system, the Lynx Mattress includes a cushioned foundation layer made from new-life yarns, something we are beginning to see crop up in other products tied to the Simply Bensons range. The mattress also includes a polyester filler layer that proves popular with the environmentally conscious since it is made from a minimum of 70% recycled plastic material. 

Onto the tension and the Lynx is perhaps most ideally suited to those looking for an orthopaedic feel mattress with a firm designation that will protect your back and neck as you sleep while not breaking the bank while doing so. The spring system within performs better than some counterparts and has reasonable body contouring with strong resistive properties necessary to fight against your body as it tries to sink into it.

The mattress features an impressive 5 year guarantee which is somewhat market leading and gives the consumer great protection relative to the 1 year traditionally offered. Furthermore the BSI Kitemark assures you of great British quality.

The mattress is available in all popular mattress sizes and offers great value for money. The result of the above is a soft responsive comfort layer with a firm base that will help alleviate back and neck problems common with those that would require orthopaedic intervention.

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

  • 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.
