Also known as the Eco-Comfort 1200 mattress, the Sofia is one of Silentnight's most popular models and manages to have mass market appeal by creating an ideal mid-range beating product.
When I trialed the Sofia 1200 I found it firmer than average but with a deep enough comfort layer to accommodate side sleepers without difficulty. The result of this is you get all the benefits of firm support for back sleepers, without the downside for side sleepers.
Great reviews and consistently featured in top 10 lists throughout the UK.
The 5 year guarantee gives great piece of mind that you don't get with a lot of other models from some of the big retailers.
Some unique reports of sagging that go against the otherwise-positive grain. Generally these mattresses still need to be rotated in line with manufacturer care instructions.

We've expanded on the specifications of the product to better help you understand it's benefits.
Medium to 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 medium 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.
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.
The benefits of a double sided mattress are that you get twice the surface area of comfort layers. The real-world practicality of this means that you flip the mattress as well as rotate allowing for better settlement of fillings which increases longevity, while reducing the chance of dipping or spring problems that may otherwise occur. Ultimately the mattress will likely last longer and remain comfortable for a greater duration.
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.
Pocket springs are of considerable better quality than their poorer traditional open coil counterparts. Put simply, pocket spring contours better and supports better than other base layers. When it comes to pocket spring mattresses, the general rule of thumb is that the more springs the better. There are exceptions, of course, but for the best part this is likely to be a good quality mattress based on it's base layer.
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.
Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

We really like soft knitted covers as the fabric is incredibly soft and stretchy while also being breathable, helping to keep you cool while ensuring the mattress can breath.

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.
28cm is considered deep for a mattress and is more than enough room to house good quality components and spring systems, along with generous amounts of comfort layer materials. You may find you require deeper sheets than standard with this type of mattress however, the cost for these in negligible.
28cm of depth is a good amount of room for both a comfort layer and a construction. While higher mattress depth does not always correlate to better quality mattresses, it is normally a fairly good indicator. With this size of mattress you might require deeper mattress covers.
