What Makes The Shire Lotus Pocket Memory 1000 Mattress Great?

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

1 year guarantee included

1 year guarantee is average in the UK mqattress industry. While it should not put you off (mattresses typically last for 7 years before being replace), it is the minimum that you get with a product. Depending on your price point, you might be able to attract a higher warranty or guarantee period

No roll together

Specifically designed with roll together prevention in mind. This means the product likely has better quality internals and offers better support than other mattresses in the same price point.

Medium support

A medium tension mattress like this is the goldilocks of mattress tensions. Not too soft, nor too firm, medium is typically suitable for the vast majority of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. If you are of average build without back or neck problems, this should be a suitable product. If you are of lower BMI and a side sleeper, consider a softer mattress, whereas if you are of a higher BMI and suffer neck and back pain, consider a firmer tension.

Individual Pocket Springs

The ideal choice in construction when choosing a mattress, pocket sprung mattresses offer, in our opinion, the best combination of support and comfort. The number of pocket springs can be equally important however

Memory Foam

memory foam is one of the most well known materials used in the upper layer of mattresses. Memory foam basically contours to your entire body with moulding properties. Designed by NASA, this material rebounds to your touch and feels like you are floating on a cloud. Memory foam does not necesserily mean soft either, you can still have firm mattresses for those that want them with a bit of memory foam.

No Need To Turn

This means that the product does not need to be turned over, but make no mistake, that is not the same as saying a product does not need to be rotated. If you do not want dips in your mattress with time, be sure to rotate evenly every month where possible

Fire Resistant - Low Hazard

This product has a low fire hazard marker against it, ideal considering you"re unconscious while on it. Not to be confused with a source 5 rating

NBF Approved Product

NBF stands for the National Bed Federation and is at the forefront of standards and legislation in the UK bed industry, these guys oversee the entire bedding industry with their mark and brand only being associated to those that follow a certain criteria of care and standards.

20cm deep

A 20cm deep mattress is typical for the industry. There is enough room for some good quality springs and materials and enough room for a decent top layer of comfort. Bed sheets will nothave an issue fitting over this size of mattress

Hand Tufted

A tufted mattress is often a sign of high quality, Unlike quilted mattress which binds the soft layer directly to the other layers, traditional tufting uses several thick straps to hold the layers together through the spring unit, binding it at each side.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Medium Support (3)

Medium support suits the vast majority of people so unless your BMI is too low or too high, you are unlikely to need a mattress with a different firmness grade.

Pressure Relieving

Due to the support structure in place within this mattress it advertises as benefiting from pressure relieving properties. The way a mattress can achieve this is through the use of a good quality spring system that can contour to the body, providing tension equally across all areas of the body dependant on sleeping position and pressure

1000 Springs

A healthy amount of springs with which to contour around your body. 1000 is typical for a mattress at this price point and should provide the sleeper with adequate support for years to come.

Responsive Memory Foam

Memory foam is the most popular and most requested top layer for a mattress. After all, develped by NASA, this product has supreme bounce-back comfort that very few other products on the market can immitate. The pro of memory foam is surely in the comfort, the downsides are that it may get a little sweaty and hot in the summer months depending on the depth of the foam

Vacuum Packed & Rolled

Vacuum packing and rolled mattresses now account for 26% of all consumer mattress purchases. Growing in popularity due to their almost identical performance to that of a normal mattress, these mattresses are able to be carried up tight stairways, picked up from the store and delivered much cheaper meaning those cost savings often get passed to the consumer. Well worth consideration, the idea that a rolled mattress is inferior has long been disproven, especially with the rise of bed-in-the-box retailers like Eve and Simba

This product comes with a warranty / guarantee on purchase. This is standard EU legislation. You will also get a standard 14day distance selling period whereby you will be able to return the product provided you abide to the retailers guidelines and return policy
