Why our sleep experts loved it
The Melrose Mirapocket Mattress from Silentnight is one of the most popular mattresses sold by Dreams and with good reason. The price point of this mattress is low, relative to the quality of materials, while it's firmness tension of medium gives mass market appeal since it's largely suitable for pretty much everyone. Let's dig a little deeper.
The support layer for this mattress is pocket spring, one of the best supports in the industry that outperforms traditional spring and reflex foam fairly consistently due to it's full body contouring that gives different levels of support relative to tension against the body. It works really well.
The comfort layer of this mattress features the now-popular Eco Comfort fibres, something that has become a core part of most new Silentnight mattresses. The good news is that this new comfort layer is soft and comfortable while also being recyclable and made from recyclable materials.
Finally, this is a double sided mattress meaning you get the comfort layer on both sides. The benefit of this is that it gives you twice the surface area. Rotate and flip frequently and you get better settlement of fibres and comfort.
Reviews for the Melrose look to be positive, with over 300 positive reviews from the fairly new product. Customers appear happy with the medium tension and pocket springs. This is unsurprising as pocket springs are generally regarded as some of the best in the support segment and with a medium tension you get that goldilocks effect whereby it's a one-size-fits-all that suits so many people and so it's easy to see why people love this product.
To date there is only one negative review for this product which talks about firmness and how it is considered too firm. I have not had a chance to personally try this one in store yet, however, this looks like a one off down to consumer preference as there are far too many happy customers to offset.
