We've got an absolute treat for you today in the form of this coveted and well proportioned mattress. Brought to you by the infamous Relyon in a joint partnership with sister company Dunlopillo, this is going to be one that you want to add to your consideration list.
Each mattress can generally be divided into 3 parts, the support layer, the comfort layer and the outer cover.
The support layer is the layer which gives you all the structure of the mattress and depending on the quality of the product depends on the support layer used. In this instance we have a good quality pocket spring layer which, as we've discussed before, is our personal favorite and a general indicator that you are buying a good quality mattress that is going to last. In terms of the amount of springs, we generally want a fair chunk as it means tighter and better body contouring. The Relyon Bridgwater Dunlopillo® Mattress comes with an impressive 1184 springs so there is no issue there, offering adequate support for both your back and your neck.
Onto the comfort layer and you have a combination of natural wool filling and latex (via pillow top). These work better together than you might imagine as both fillings are going to keep you very comfortable but also cool due to their breathable qualities. You can't really go wrong, many of the same benefits of memory foam with non of the downsides that tend to come with it.
Onto the cover and this is more important than you might expect. Unfortunately we don't have too much to go on here but a visual inspection tells us that you're also getting turning handles. Despite this being a single sided mattress (meaning you do not flip), you should still rotate. Doing so will give you you better settlement over time and ensure that you don't develop dips in the mattress through prolonged sleeping positions.
Finally, this is a medium tension mattress, that means it's going to give you enough support for your back and neck to suit those looking for additional help in those areas while also giving you enough softness through the springs and fillings to ensure you remain comfortable. Most importantly it is able to do all of this while ensuring you stay cool while you sleep.
Reasons to Buy
The positives of this sort of mattress generally speak for themselves but when it comes to suitability we'd generally recommend this for people looking to get a bit more out of their sleep and who are willing to spend a little extra. The ultimate price per night of sleep over the traditional 7 years life expectancy of mattresses means that this is still a very good option even for those on a mid-range budget but will ultimately favor those with a higher degree of discretionary spending. The main thing to watch for with mattresses tends to be ensuring a good firmness for both partners but the beauty of medium tensions like this one is that it's almost a one-size-fits-all approach to mattress buying that will generally ensure both parties are happy.
You'll also find getting a good nights sleep easier for those that are in a relationship and share the same bed. That's due to the strong edge to edge support and tufting, allowing you to utilize even and measured support all the way to the edges.
Reasons to Avoid
Some people really do not like pillow tops. If you do not follow traditional advise of rotating the product over time, you may find that the pillow top could develop it's own dips which may cause problems down the line. This all comes down to maintenance however, so just keep an eye on it. Failure to do so will leave you with a perfectly good mattress underneath with what is effectively a mattress topper that cannot be removed on top that otherwise ruins it.
