Why our sleep experts loved it

Are you a light sleeper who struggles to get a good night’s rest? Is your mattress causing you aches and pains in the morning? Do you have a restless partner that you can feel every time they move? 

There are many factors that can influence the quality of your sleep, but with good quality pocket springs and a medium tension comfort, the Simply By Bensons Calm Mattress could be exactly what your body needs to get better quality sleep.

Simply by Bensons is a range of mattresses made for customers in the UK. The sub-brand to Bensons for Beds started in 2020 and is designed to offer a comfortable and affordable night’s sleep to all. The range caters to a variety of sleepers and lifestyles, from back, stomach and side sleepers, as well as those who have specialist requirements around orthopaedic and hypoallergenic needs. The newest in this range, the Calm Mattress, aims to help in a few different areas, let’s dive into what makes it great.

Who is the mattress for

Starting with the tension which is rated as a medium, this mattress will prove ideal for back and side sleepers of average weight and built in a typical setting. This is due to the amount of sinkage within the product being at a fair amount while still having good quality springs beneath that are resistive to each movement, offering enough support for those without orthopaedic needs who are combination sleepers. If you are a back sleeper primarily, you may find you can opt for a slightly firmer mattress as the mattress won’t need to react the same as if you are on your side with your hip and shoulder digging into the mattress.

Onto the pocket spring base layer itself and this is where you get a quite impressive result. See, pocket springs are the best support layer in the base of a mattress and consistently beat open coil traditional spring and reflex foam for design, comfort and even longevity. This spring type is normally reserved for mid-range to high-end so it is really good news that we are starting to see this sort of spring system make its way into essential budget product offerings.

More about that comfort layer and Simply Bensons have opted for recycled foundation layer and comfort layer, both of which come with benefits to the environment while still being plush and comfortable for you. The layers are fairly deep too, meaning you won’t be able to feel the springs beneath.

Who is the mattress not suitable for?

This type of mattress tends to have mass market appeal thanks to its high quality spring system, easy going tension that suits most people and comfort layer that doesn’t offend one way or the other. The mass appeal of this product as a result means that it can be difficult to find who wouldn’t benefit from it. That said, those looking for orthopaedic relief or those who suffer from back or neck pain would typically require a firmer tension that is considered more specialist. The result of a medium tension on your back and neck while you sleep might not offer enough resistance to find relief. Same goes for those with a higher BMI than average, we’ve built a handy tool below that allows you to enter your weight to gauge how the mattress will feel and almost universally the result of a higher BMI means a mattress will feel softer on a sliding scale. Too soft and you will also not find comfort with this product.

Where in the market does the mattress compete?

The Simply By Bensons Calm Mattress is one that is surprisingly reasonable on budgets meaning you can pick one up on a fairly reasonable lead time at a price that will cater to those shopping in the lower-market. Thanks to Bensons for Beds large profile and opportunities of scale, the savings offered through their own branded products can be more impressive than buying branded products elsewhere meaning you get a better product at a lower price.

What is the level of firmness experienced?

The Calm Mattress comes in at a 6 on the firmness scale, where 1 is soft and 10 is firm. It has a bit more resistance than other medium tension mattresses we have trialled but only ever so slightly. 

What do other customers say?

This is a brand new product so reviews are still coming in, however, long term reviews are likely to be some way away as a result. That said, we have seen this configuration of mattresses before much to the delight of existing happy customers. A name change doesn’t change the positive things people have previously endorsed particularly around the good quality springs and mass-suitability in the tension.

*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.
  • 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.


  • 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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

This is quite a deep mattress and therefore is very comfortable. It isn't too soft or firm, it's sits somewhere in the middle.

It is a very high quality mattress but doesn't have as much rigidity on the edges meaning sometimes you roll off.

The double mattress seems softer than the one I tried in the shop. The one in the shop seemed a lot firmer.
