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

10 year guarantee is at the higher end of endorsements.

Kontour memory foam is new but if the spec sheets are to be believed, address many of the outstanding concerns with memory foam.

From an established brand for an established retailer.

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.

5 week lead time for delivery isn't bad, but may hamper those who have left purchasing a bit too late.

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

Key Performance Indicators

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard 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.
