Why our sleep experts loved it

Imagine yourself sleeping on a cloud. That’s exactly what it feels like to sleep on the Simbatex Essential Foam Mattress. This mattress offers superior comfort and support, and its temperature-sensitive foam conforms to your body’s shape to provide the perfect sleep experience. It is made with a unique combination of advanced foam layers and a breathable fabric cover that helps to regulate temperature, so you’ll be sure to stay cool and comfy all night long. Plus, with its superior edge support and hypoallergenic properties, this product is sure to be an essential part of your bedroom setup. Get ready for a great night's sleep with the Simbatex Essential Foam Mattress.

Many features make the Simbatex Essential Foam Mattress stand out from the rest. Here are some of its top features that make it the ideal sleep solution for any home, starting in the comfort layer of Simbatex. For those who don’t know, Simbatex is exclusive to Simba and is made up from open cell memory foam and infused with graphite. This is an increasingly common way to offset the negative heat and breathability that often plagues traditional memory foam. The result? A cooler and fresher night's sleep while still being able to appreciate all the benefits of memory foam.

Additional to the comfort layer, next up comes the base layer and Simba have stuck to what they know and have incorporated a reflex foam base of medium-firm density foam which helps push back against your muscles and bones ensuring full body contouring and an enhanced sleep experience. 

When it comes to suitability, we would rate the medium firm tension as being ideal for back and stomach sleepers, while those with a slightly higher BMI than average, perhaps finding it suitable for side sleepers. The reason we say this is that the medium firm density foam doesn’t have as much sinkage as a softer mattress in key areas which makes your hip and shoulder stick out from the mattress rather than inside it. The heavier you are, the more you sink and this effect can be offset.

*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.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • 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.


  • 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.
