Why our sleep experts loved it
The Sealy Broxton Firm Support Mattress promises a firm yet comfortable sleeping surface, with an emphasis on back and stomach sleepers. This review will assess various aspects of the mattress, including its construction, materials and comfort. Let’s dive into the different areas and see whether this could be the one for you.
Construction & Materials
The Sealy Broxton Firm Mattress is handcrafted, with careful attention to detail and craftsmanship. It incorporates Sealy’s PostureTech core support, a responsive spring system designed to deliver firmness and body support where it is most required. As the pressure increases, the spring system responds by increasing its firmness for deep support and pressure relief making for an ideal orthopaedic-feel to your nights sleep.
More about the core support offered in the spring system and you also get a central zoning power pack for additional lumbar support, acting as a shock absorber, which contributes to the mattress’s longevity. An Edge Guard technology also ensures a firm edge, allowing users to maximise their surface area for sleep and movement.
Above the support layer and into the comfort layers about and the product is layered with Tencel fibres known for breathability and moisture management, which help maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature. The outer layer is a premium Belgian damask cover, treated with Pro-Shield for allergen resistance making it ideal for those looking for a more hygienic nights sleep.
What does this mean for how it feels? Well, the twice-tempered spring system and robust edge guard provide a solid foundation for durability while the hand-tufted finish also reduces settlement issues, increasing the mattress's lifespan and increasing the firmness slightly. The result of this is a product better suited to back and stomach sleepers rather than side sleepers, although some combination sleepers will still find it suitable.
The Sealy Broxton Firm Mattress is likely to be an excellent choice for back and stomach sleepers who prefer a firm surface while the temperature regulation features make it suitable for those who tend to sleep hot. However, side sleepers or those who prefer a softer, more cushioned sleeping surface might want to consider a medium tension mattress.
Finally, the mattress boasts of an endorsement from Allergy UK due to its Pro-Shield treated cover, making it a suitable choice for allergy sufferers. Being handcrafted by Sealy, it also reflects well-made British quality and looks to be a good choice for a large portion of back sleepers.
