Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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.

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 Lynx Mattress Great?

325 open coil springs – for responsive comfort & support 

An open coil sprung mattress is one type of standard sprung mattress and is often less expensive than pocket sprung mattresses. Open coil mattresses are available in a variety of tension layers and are made from hundreds of coils of high tensile steel wound into interconnected springs and connected by a wire rod edge. The spring unit evenly distributes your body weight across the mattress and minimises pressure points.

Upholstered in a Belgian damask cover – for a soft, yet durable & breathable sleeping surface 

There are many benefits to owning a Belgian damask cover. For one, they are incredibly beautiful and add a touch of luxury to any room. They are also very durable, so you can expect them to last for many years. Additionally, they are great at insulating against both heat and cold, making them ideal for use in any climate.

New-life recycled layer – cushioned foundation support  

New life yarns are often used in the construction of mattresses because they provide a number of benefits. They are strong and durable, so they can help to extend the life of a mattress. They are also able to resist matting and pilling, so the mattress will look newer for longer. Additionally, new life yarns are usually more comfortable than traditional yarns, so they can help to improve the quality of sleep.

Breathable, hypoallergenic layer – recycled, future friendly comfort 

A hypoallergenic layer is part of a mattress that is designed to be resistant to dust mites and other allergens. These mattresses are often made of materials that are naturally resistant to allergens, such as latex or wool. Some hypoallergenic mattresses are also coated with a special barrier that helps to keep dust mites and other allergens from penetrating the surface of the mattress.

Comfort rating - firm  

A firm mattress provides support for the spine and prevents the sleeper from sinking into the mattress. This can help to reduce back pain and promote a better night's sleep. Additionally, a firm mattress can provide support for the stomach and prevent the sleeper from experiencing indigestion or other stomach issues.

Free 5 year guarantee - for total peace of mind  

This sort of guarantee goes beyond the average offered by retailers in the industry. 5 years is almost the full average lifespan for a mattress which gives you great piece of mind and shows just how much trust the brand and retailer have in their product.

Quality assured - British Kite mark accredited  

The Kitemark™ from BSI is a longstanding reputation for exceptional quality, safety, and trust. Consumers and businesses have relied on this symbol for over 100 years. BSI Kitemark certification assures that a product or service's claims have been independently and repeatedly examined, allowing you to rely on products and services bearing the Kitemark.
