New to Bensons for Beds and new to the Sleep Science brand comes the Solaris mattress. For those new to the brand, Sleep Science is a new subdivision of Staples who are well renowned throughout the UK for their expert levels of quality and craftsmanship. Don't let the lack of selling history put you off a Solaris mattress however, as the quality of product speaks for itself. Let's dive into what makes it great.
Starting with the base layer, that's the layer that sits at the bottom of the mattress. This layer consists of super flex core support which is a unique layer providing both the durability and foundations necessary to be able to adequately support the back and back. The super flex core support provides a firm level of tension that should prove suitable for the average person who sleeps on their back. For those who are side sleepers, you may wish to consider the softer Alasia product by the same brand, as it has a similar makeup at a slightly softer tension that tends to be more acceptable for those who sleep on their side.
Onto that top comfort layer and you get a delightfully soft Kontour memory foam which has all the benefits of traditional memory foam but with non of the downsides like heat buildup and retention normally seen. The Kontour layer pairs nicely with the 3DAir cool touch cover which gives additional cooling comfort creating a great all season product.
Long term reviews are yet to come in but given the strong history associated with Staples, accompanied by a market leading 10-year guarantee, it's clear this product aims to please.
Reasons to Buy

Reasons to Avoid
Traditional sizes available but no custom or bespoke sizing around small single, small double, and other ikea sizing.
Price point may exclude those looking to upgrade their sleep and while the quality is there, affordability this year is down.
