Today we're going to be taking a closer look at the Bamboo+ Memory 800 Pocket Mattress which is a new product from the popular Mlily brand which aims to address many of the most common desires people have surrounding material and offering when choosing their next mattress. Let's start with the brand, founded in 2003, Mlily has seen huge increases in demand that have driven their huge success. They are renowned in the industry for offering great value products at reasonable price points often with their primary selling point of memory foam proving to be a popular driver.
Let's start with that all important support layer. This support layer is where you get all the firmness your body needs to relax the muscles and bones in your back and neck and is what will leave you without soreness and pain when you wake up. As is typical with Mlily, they have opted for a pocket spring base which is our personal favourite thanks to its impressive body contouring and roll-together prevention. Pocket springs allow you to avoid disturbing your partner with every movement ensuring you both get a deeper nights sleep. The spring amount will often play a part in just how well the body contours and while 800 is on the lower end, you will still see better coverage than other materials utilised in this base layer (typically). The reason for the lower spring count is down to the better than expected price point available for this mattress with considerable material cost being dedicated to the upper comfort layer of foam.
Onto that comfort layer and we see Mlily's distinctive Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam. It is important to stress that this is not your average memory foam. See, typical memory foam does all the wonderful things you expect with the pressure relief, the floating sensation and the instant response to touch and weight. However, it does have drawbacks surrounding heat retention that often causes users to sweat and interrupt their nights sleep, effecting REM and preventing the deep sleep we advocate. Fortunately Mlily have devised a solution for this around Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam which offers all the positives of traditional memory foam but with non of the downsides surrounding heat buildup. It really is a fantastic option that has been proven to work really well. The layer comes in a 2cm thickness which is perhaps a little on the low side, but then, these sort of specifications in higher quantities often double the price point.
Reviews for the mattress are strong with an impressively positive rating so far from customers. Feedback suggests people are happy with the compromises on spring count and memory depth and do not notice them with many talking about the extreme levels of comfort on offer and the great support offered against their back.
