Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

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.

What Makes The Silentnight Athens 1400 Mirapocket Ortho Mattress Great?

1400 hand-nested Mirapocket springs for responsive support

Pocket springs are probably the best support layer you can get in a mattress helping to provide measured and even support across your body where you need it most. What's more, the unique feeling of pocket springs hugs each point of your body, offering contouring across each pressure point to relieve aches and pains. Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.

Individually pocketed springs absorb movement and minimise partner disturbance

Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.

Orthopaedic to support your back and reduce pressure point build-up

The need for orthopaedic mattresses is increasing rapidly. They are becoming more popular due to the growing needs of people with back problems.Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to provide support to the spine and avoid the sagging that compresses spinal discs. They are often used for people suffering from back pain who need more support and for those with a history of back problems.

Firmer feel - ideal if you love high levels of support

Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back. Typically sleeping on your back helps ensure the spine remains aligned throughout the night and is the most natural sleeping position that can prevent twisting and turning. A firm mattress ensures that a high level of support contours around your body, alleviating pressure across your entire frame in a more even manner than that of a soft mattress, most notably in the hips, neck and shoulders.Finally, if you are suffering from neck or back pain, a firm mattress can help alleviate these problems and result in a better and more relaxed sleep for many years to come.

Made with Eco Comfort Fibre™ fillings from 100% sustainable sources

Eco comfort fibres are made completely from recycled materials. specifically plastic bottles. While plastic bottles might not immediately seem comfortable, that's the base material, not what it becomes. What you get from this material as an end result is a soft woven fabric that is luxuriously soft and extremely comfortable making it ideal for the environmentally conscious as well as those looking for a quality nights sleep.

Eco Comfort Fibres™ are both breathable and hypoallergenic for a fresher overall feel

While plastic bottles might not immediately seem comfortable, that's the base material, not what it becomes. What you get from this material as an end result is a soft woven fabric that is luxuriously soft and extremely comfortable making it ideal for the environmentally conscious as well as those looking for a quality nights sleep.

Hypoallergenic and free from foam and chemical treatments for peace of mind

Allergy sufferers often experience the problem of waking up in the middle of the night or having to get up in the morning with a stuffy nose and eyes. The reason why you wake up with a stuffy nose is because your mattress has accumulated dust mites, mould and mildew, all of which are allergens. The solution is a hypoallergenic mattress is made from materials that do not support mould or dust mites. They also have anti-microbial properties that effectively kill any bacteria that may come into contact with it.

Hand-tufted to secure the fillings and provide enhanced support

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Single-sided for easy care - no need to turn

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Depth: 25cm (10 inches approx)

25cm depth is about average for a mattress, it leaves plenty of room for good quality fillings while still allowing you to fit a standard sheet over it.

Handmade 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.

5 year guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is quite rare in the industry and is a great indicator of the retailer beleiving in their product. Anything go wrong in the next 5 years, no drama, get it replaced.

Mirapocket springs

Mirapocket is Silentnights own take on pocket springs, in this instance, mirapocket is better than miracoil in terms of the support structure offered and is the one to consider should your budget allow it.

Eco Comfort Fibre™

Silentnight, in an effort to be more environmentally conscious have created the Eco Comfort Fibres. These fibres are super breathable and are made entirely from plastic bottles ensuring that both the planet and your pocket are both left in a good state.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Orthopaedic Support

Do you suffer from back pain? If so you will likely find that an orthopaedic mattress will be massively beneficial to you. Slightly firmer in the comfort side of things but ultimately with a better support layer means that your back and neck will thank you for years to come.

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

No roll-together

Nobody wants to wake up in a sweaty mess, conjoined to their partner. This generally happens when you both end up rolling into the middle while you sleep and is common with lower quality mattresses that do not half roll-together prevention. Truth is, any good mattress with adequate support structure should be roll-together by default. This specification tells you that the mattress should be of adequate quality.

Firm

Firm mattresses are great for those looking for an extra bit of support, either because they have a higher BMI and leanm toward the heavier side, or because they have joint and muscle pain and appreciate a decent amount of support while they sleep. If you are not actively looking for a firm mattress it may be wise to consider something else from the range that is perhaps closer to the medium firmness rating

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the mattress.

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Vegan-friendly

The fabrics, materials and fillings of this mattress are the result of what has been deemed vegan-friendly materials. Ideal for those expressing their beliefs while still requiring good levels of comfort and support from a product

Chemical treatment-free

No additional chemical treatments have been performed against the product ensuring it remains as natural as possible.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Customer Reviews For The Silentnight Athens 1400 Mirapocket Ortho Mattress

Based on 273 reviews
5

So comfortable! Just the right amount of firmness and just the right amount of give so ensure you can get comfortable and have a good night sleep. The materials feel very natural. Really happy with this mattress and going to purchase another one for my guest room. Firm round the edges too so you dont slip off or sink down when you sit on the edge or the bed. Sleeping next to my partner we dont dip or roll towards each other. I purposely chose pocket springs to prevent this and it works. Great value. Recommend this mattress if you like a firm mattress thats not a rock.

5

Buying a mattress online is not easy. I had used Silent Night products before and the reviews spoke highly. I took the plunge and I can honestly say this is the most comfortable, supportive mattress I have ever had. It is firm, but not so hard to be uncomfortable. I usually get a bad lower back with a new mattress but not this one. Everyone I sit / lay on it I'm surprised just how good it is. Best of all it was not expensive

5

Both myself and my wife were suffering from back muscle aches as a result of sports exercise. Having noted a better nights sleep in hotels with a firmer mattress we decided to invest in a new premium mattress of our own.Absolutely no regrets! We both sleep soundly and aches are dramatically improved.

5

If you want a very firm product then go for this. I bought this because my husband often needs to sleep in a more firm bed than our usual one. I have slept on this once and woke up as though my ripcage had been crushed. Not for me. I will stick to my Hypnos in future...

5

My daughter bought a Dreams mattress which said it was made specially for Dreams by Silentnight. This mattress looks the same design, is just as comfortable if not more, but half the price! Yes I would buy again, very supportive and no roll together.

5

Firm but very comfortable. For the first time I do not have any bad ache. Ive always opted for a medium mattress but have always suffered with an achey back on waking, but this is the first time Ive woken up with no back ache! Feeling very happy!

5

It's a bit hard for me but for my partner who is much heavier it's perfect. I'm hoping it will soften with some more time. I don't have back ache after about 10 mins of getting up whereas before it would last longer

5

Supportive as expected from a Silentnight orthopaedic mattress. This replaced a previous Silentnight ortho that lasted over 15 years. This one is very comfortable, sleep length and quality for us is improved with this mattress.

5

Extremely well made. I've always bought cheap in the past and although this isn't the most expensive it is definitely worth every penny.Very firm.No more aches for me and my rheumatoid arthritic suffering partner.

5

After spending years with a mattress that was waking me up with an aching back this mattress is a revelation. I wanted a comfortable ortho mattress and that's exactly what I got. Wish I took the plunge sooner.

5

I'm not sinking in middle, that's because I needed it, mine was so old. It's heavy I struggle to tuck sent under, don't know how I'm going to lift it to turn oh well someone mite help
