Finding the right mattress can be hugely difficult, after all I've reviewed over 600 to date and I'm still learning when it comes to suitability surrounding individuality and personal comforts. These barriers all make buying online a challenge, but in this instance I think we've got something a bit special.
I'm going to split this review into 3 chunks, support, comfort and cover.
Looking at the support, you're getting 1000 pocket springs. For those unaware, pocket springs are the best support layer you will find in a mattress, it is my preference that wins out against traditional spring and reflex foam. This is due to pocket springs ability to offer full body contouring with suitable support for both the neck and back.
Onto the comfort layer and we have a generous depth of luxurious and soft gel. The thing that makes the gel option so great for people is that it is massively breathable, allowing strong airflow and allowing you to keep cool while still giving you a deep and comfortable layer to sink into.
Finally you have the cover, bringing the mattress together and including a pillow top as part of it. The cover is soft and durable with turning handles to help facilitate rotation. Remember, this is a single sided mattress and while that does mean you don't need to flip it, you should still rotate as it helps with settlement issues that would otherwise potentially cause dipping.
Reasons to Buy
This mattress is rated a medium tension that will suit the vast majority of people. Not too firm nor too soft, this could be a great option for those with a partner who has a different sleep position, height or weight as it is generally agreeable and in line with most tolerances.
As an additional positive benefit, you get 10 years warranty included. Thats 3 years longer than the typical lifecycle of other mattresses and highlights the quality materials that the manufacturer have included in this product.
Reasons to Avoid
One of the main downsides of this mattress surrounds it's origins, being produced outside of the UK has the pro benefit of keeping the costs down, it also has a stigma associated with it, especially considering the majority of it's competition tend to be handmade within the UK. Outside of this downside, the SleepSoul range fro Birlea can be a fantastic option to get the sleep you deserve at a cheaper than standard price.
