Why our sleep experts loved it

We've been diving into plenty of different Bensons for Beds mattresses tonight and now we find ourselves taking a closer look at the Maypole Ortho Backcare Mattress—a specialised solution that offers an extra-firm feel, designed for those with specific orthopaedic needs. This mattress, brought to you direct from Bensons for Beds who act as both the retailer and manufacturer in this instance bring a unique offering in the realm of sleep technology, providing unparalleled support and durability that potentially goes a bit too niche into the ultra firm segment. Suitable for you? Maybe, but likely not, let's unpack why this may or may not suit yourself.

Who is this product for?

This mattress is a highly specialised product, best suited for individuals with pronounced orthopaedic needs. It is not recommended for side sleepers or most back sleepers unless they have specific requirements for extra-firm support. What this means is that The Maypole Ortho Backcare Mattress is engineered to serve as an orthopaedic sleep aid with an extra-firm tension that is designed to provide robust spinal alignment and support, particularly beneficial for those with back issues or those who require a firmer sleeping surface for medical reasons.

Features You Should Know About

1000 Pocket Springs: These springs offer individualised support and outperform open coil and reflex foam mattresses.

Seasonal Double Sided: One side features a breathable, hypoallergenic layer for warmer months, while the other has a cozy wool layer for cooler months.

Dynamic Reinforced Edge Support: This feature ensures a firm perimeter, reducing roll-off and optimising the sleep surface.

Hand Tufted: Adds to the mattress's durability and support.

5-Year Guarantee: A strong warranty that rewards long-term users.

Made in the UK: Manufactured in a British Kitemark™ Quality Accredited factory.

Review

This bed is a unique product in the sleep industry with an impressive (for the price) 1000 pocket springs providing individualised support, making it superior to its open coil and reflex foam counterparts. The springs are highly reactive, adapting to your body's movements and offering a personalised sleep experience that reacts to your movements in a very resistive way due to the extra firm tension.

One of the standout features of this mattress is its seasonal double-sided design. One side is equipped with a breathable, hypoallergenic layer made from 42% recycled materials, ideal for warmer months. The flip side features a cozy wool layer, perfect for cooler months, ensuring you'll neither sweat nor shiver during sleep.

While the mattress offers robust support, it's worth noting that it's a very niche product. Its extra-firm tension makes it unsuitable for a broad range of sleepers, limiting its appeal to those with specific orthopaedic needs who sleep exclusively on their back. However, its strong 5-year guarantee and the fact that it's manufactured in a British Kitemark™ Quality Accredited factory add layers of trust and reliability to the product.

Ultimately the Maypole Ortho Backcare Mattress is a highly specialised solution designed for those with specific orthopaedic needs. Its unique features, such as the seasonal double-sided design and robust edge support, make it a compelling but niche choice in the mattress market.

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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

Mattress is very comfortable and gives good, firm, support. It has not done anything to correct the hip problem but then I did not expect that from it and the problem has got no worse. The main reason for purchase of this mattress was to give better support for my back as my old mattress was sagging and, hopefully, prevent any problems in the lumbar region in later years.

This is the best mattress I have ever bought. I knew it would be excellent because my daughter has had one for a number of years and I have occasionally slept on it and had a great nights sleep. I have back problems and even though I have only had it for three weeks it definitely seems to be helping.

A very solid & comfortable extra firm mattress that doesn't sink or make any squeaking noises. Easy to fall asleep on, it might take you a few days to adjust to your new mattress but after that you will love it. I have nothing negative to say about this mattress.

Still getting used to this mattress. It's very firm, which is what we needed, but after sleeping on it for a few hours, it can become quite uncomfortable.
