Mansfield Ortho Mattress Review - The Key to Your Best Night's Sleep?

Maintaining quality sleep is anything but trivial, it has deep-rooted connections to our overall wellbeing, affecting everything from our mood to physical health. The Mansfield Ortho Mattress claims to elevate your sleep experience by offering unparalleled support and comfort, wrapped up into a responsible, Green-accredited package. But does it truly deliver on its promises? Let's take an in-depth look at what this mattress has to offer, leaning on findings from our hands-on testing, customer reviews, and its inherent design and features.

How we test

As mattress connoisseurs, we're fully committed to delivering sincere insight into every mattress we review. For the Mansfield Ortho Mattress, the lion's share of our evaluation was conducted in-store. We employed a range of tests ranging from long engagement trials to short tries covering lying down, sitting on the edge, and assessing overall build quality. While we didn't carry out a trial in a home environment, we feel confident in offering an informed, meaningful review.

Design and Features

The first attribute you'll notice about the Mansfield Ortho Mattress is its robust build quality, manifesting in a thick 26.5cm profile. This mattress adopts a traditional pocket spring configuration that totals 1,000 individual springs. Every single one of these springs acts independently, adjusting to your unique bodily contours and movements, promising an optimal level of support.

Alongside these supportive pocket springs, the Mansfield Ortho Mattress possesses a hypoallergenic comfort layer. This breathable layer, crafted from 42% recycled polyester fibres, complements the robust springs. Encasing it all is a durable damask cover that offers both a premium finish and soft touch.

The standout feature of this mattress is undoubtedly hands-off orthopaedic support, derived from its firm fillings and hand tufted construction. In addition, the dynamic reinforced edge support lessens the chances of roll-off, optimising your sleeping surface right to the very edge.

Mattress Comfort

The Mansfield Ortho Mattress very much falls into that firm comfort category. From our hands-on testing, we found that the generous layers of support, namely the pocket springs and polyester fillings, provided a firm, yet pleasing level of comfort. Falling into bed felt like surrendering yourself to a cocoon that cradled and held the body in place, rather than just sinking into a sea of cushion.

Turning and tossing on this mattress is a different experience altogether. The mattress appears to immediately rebound, ensuring your comfort is quickly re-configured and restored. The sturdy mattress seems to preserve its original form even after being used and turned regularly, reaffirming its durability appeal.

Suitability

The Mansfield Ortho Mattress, with its firm tension, is best catered to back sleepers, and some stomach sleepers. On the other hand, side sleepers or those with hourglass figures might not find it as comfortable as it's less accommodating to the hip and shoulder weight distribution nuances associated with these positions.

Ortho is indeed a special type of mattress, specifically designed to offer a higher level of support, which you won't find in conventional mattresses. However, if your sleeping position is predominantly side-based, I'd suggest considering a different option, one more attuned to providing enough sinkage for pressure relief.

What Customers Thought

Customer opinions about the Mansfield Ortho Mattress do diverge. Some users revealed dissatisfaction with the mattress, citing "settlement" or sagging issues after a few days of usage. This was linked with sudden lower back and hip pain for some, despite routine mattress rotations. It's important, however, to remember that mattresses respond differently to various weights, body shapes, and sleep positions.

Another aspect that warrants attention is the 40-night exchange policy that, despite sounding promising initially, has been criticised by some customers for the associated cost in new delivery and fees. Nonetheless, many praised the delivery aspect in terms of efficiency and on-time delivery.

The Verdict

The Mansfield Ortho Mattress's charm indeed lies within its niche - back sleepers looking for an orthopaedic solution. The mattress's firm tension and pocket springs lend towards a supportive and comfortable slumber, while the eco-friendliness is certainly a bonus. It might not be a crowd-pleaser due to its firm comfort level, and if you are often changing sleeping positions, this may not be the mattress for you. A peek into customer reviews indicated some settlement concerns but highlighting the importance of matching the right mattress to individual sleep needs is critical.

Remember, while our audits focus on different elements, the right mattress for you is ultimately the one that helps you achieve a rejuvenating and revitalising sleep. The Mansfield Ortho Mattress could be the missing link in your pursuit of the perfect slumber, but only if it aligns with your sleep needs and preferences.

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.

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.

1. Inaccurate reviews - look at the small font at top of each review - majority are not for the mattess they looking at! Leads customers to make financial decisions on incorrect info. 2. "Settlement" - is worse after 4 days than 9 years on my old mattress. Is another word for sag? This is for Mansfield Ortho Firm - the sag is causing a lot of sudden lower back/hip pain. Rotating/Flipping makes no difference as the sag/settlement dip is central, so its always affecting same body area. Im 8.5 stone for context. 3. The 40 night exchange would cost me 100+ in new delivery & fee charges. Plus then Im stuck with the next mattress which going by reviews on this site & trust pilot are also prone to sag/settlement. 4. Delivery was great.
