Key Performance Indicators

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

  • 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.

What Makes The Simply Sealy Ortho Mattress Great?

A great value ortho mattress from the Simply Sealy collection

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.

They are often used for people suffering from back pain who need more support and for those with a history of back problems.

PostureTech Core Support provides total-body support and helps relieve pressure points

The PostureTech Core Support System is a revolutionary and totally unique product that finally addresses the root cause of back pain and neck pain. The system is an innovative mattress design that will help your back by providing the correct amount of support and alignment, allowing you to sleep more comfortably.

This clever spring system actually gets firmer as pressure increases

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.

Tailor-made support, where you need it most

Firmer feel - ideal if you prefer a sturdier feel

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.

Carefully hand-tufted to lock in the fillings and improve durability

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.

Hand-tufting also enhances the supportive feel

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.

High-quality damask cover

A damask cover has a pattern of small, repeated designs. These small designs are usually made from blocks of color. A damask cover can be made from many different types of fabric, such as cotton, satin and silk.The patterns on the damask covers can be simple or elaborate. The patterns can be made up of one color or a variety of colors.The name “damask” comes from the city of Damascus in Syria. The first damasks were woven in this city.

Single-sided mattress for easier care and your convenience

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.

Simply rotate end-to-end to keep it in great condition

It is import to rotate your mattress because it helps ensure even settlement of fillings and ensure even distribution is maintained. Further to this it also means that more than one area of the mattress is used equally, increasing longevity and lifespan as part of typical mattress care.

Depth: 23cm

23CM of mattress height is about standard for a good quality product. While the height of a mattress does not necessarily correlate to the quality, it does become harder to get good quality materials and fillings into a smaller frame. To that end, a mattress of 23cm is a good sign that the mattress may be a quality product. For this size of mattress you should just about be able to use normal fitted sheets without issue.

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.

Made 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.

PostureTech Core Support Springs

Providing even weight distribution, the PostureTech spring system feels soft then gradually gets firmer as pressure is applied. The entire spring unit is twice tempered, making it strong. Their Smaller diameter means they can fit more into an area, allowing for a more fine-tuned level of support.

Soft white fibres

White fibres tend to be a mixture of polester and other non-descript synthetic fibres

Damask cover

Damask is a fabric, woven in nature that is often used to upholster mattresses. It is typically made from linen or cotton and can typically be woven into delivate detailings required by the supplier. The fabrics are typically fairly hard wearing and should not cause problems

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.

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

23cm deep

23cm Or 9 inches is slightly larger than the industry standard 7 inches. Most offer a range between 10 to 14 inches and the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. 9 Inches sits comfortably in the lower-middle weight range. 

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.

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 Simply Sealy Ortho Mattress

Based on 128 reviews

I wanted to 'wait' before posting my review as I was told by my chiropractor it takes around a month for your body to adjust to a new mattress...Having experience a back impact injury February 2016, I have been VERY impatient for it to be resolved quickly. This not being the case!This is my 3rd mattress tried and I must say the 'only' one that has made a difference :) (In saying that I have also had to purchased several pillows, 9 to date, in order to alleviate my pain fully.)I adore the firmness of the mattress and 'feel' I am getting the support in the correct place. I literally sleep the whole night through. I had been waking feeling a little stiffness, but this has now gone. The tightness in my middle back is definitely reduced, as my 'monthly deep tissue massage' is testament to.I'm pleased that the mattress is deep and had no problem getting a fitted sheet to cover it. With a mattress protector nor did I notice the button detail mentioned by several people- I just do not feel them. It was no issue for me- I'm getting (finally) a great night's sleep :)The handles on the sides have made it easier to manhandle, although it is quite hefty, we managed. I have not yet had to turn it.I did do my research however prior to buying, both with comparing prices to other sites (this one is TRULY exceptionally competitively priced!!) and with reading other people's reviews to make my final selection.What can I say... I am a VERY satisfied customer, getting probably a better night's sleep than I did prior to my injury and would thoroughly recommend my purchase :)

5

The zip and link zips up on one side of the mattress.Its a little fiddley to line up the zips but patience paid off.Good if you have a superking size mattress that can't get up the stairs! I find the mattress quite firm after my last one which had really softened over the years. Was unsure at first for the first four nights whether it was too firm but now getting used to it and getting good support and getting better sleep as the nights go on.

5

Lovely mattress and great value for money in the sale - perhaps even at full price. Kept cool in the night. Not too firm but very supportive from night one. I look forward to going to bed now. I was sleeping on a budget IKEA mattress previously but this shows you dont have to pay much more to get a good nights sleep. Note: I am not a heavy person so cant speak for that customer group in terms of whether it feels as supportive.

5

This mattress is just the right amount of support - not insanely hard, but firm while not being harsh. It has a softer top layer - but when you push down on it, it's nice and firm beneath. It's also a bit lighter, certainly than the previous mattress I had, which makes it easier to move and turn over. It's given me a great night's sleep from day one.

5

Extremely satisfied by the mattress so far. Spinal support is excellent throughout and overall it feels imo as the most relaxing mattress I have experienced. Might seem hard for some, dunno, but if on the lookout for an orthopedic mattress it is highly recommended! And price is pretty great too!

5

This is a very firm mattress. My husband loves it but I find it too hard. However, if you put a memory foam topper on it then it is comfortable, yet firm. Either way if you are heavier or taller than average then it is a good mattress to buy.It is very light so it is easy to turn or move.

5

It is very firm but at the same time comfortable. My old one was memory foam which is a problem if you move around in bed as there are ripples formed. Excellent mattress and the deep sleep effect is testimony to that fact.

5

Great mattress very comfy and great value for money . My back , which has been painfully for some time on old memory foam mattress, now feels like it's brand new . Best nights sleep I've had for years .

5

Comfortable mattress, good support but I think I would have preferred an even firmer mattress as I have a bad back but that's just me, only been using for a month and so far so good, good value.

5

Firm Sealy Ortho Ruby mattress for my back and my wife's shoulder. Lovely quality. Its a level 5 firmness, but when we change it in 5-8 years, we'll go for the level 6 Sealy Back care one ?

5

love it - such a good buy - cheap and an actual good quality mattress. nice and firm. read lots of the reviews and they were right. I am very pleased with this buy

5

Good value, well packaged. Used first time last night, great sleep. Firm but not too firm. Versus paying 1000 for another well known brand, save your money.

5
