Why our sleep experts loved it
As a dedicated side sleeper and someone who's spent over a decade in the mattress industry, I've had the opportunity to test and evaluate countless sleep solutions. Today, I'd like to bring your attention to the Slumberland Duo 1400 2-in-1 Mattress, a unique offering that promises year-round comfort.
The Slumberland Duo 1400 2-in-1 stands out for its double-sided design, crafted to provide optimal comfort and support throughout the varying seasons. This is achieved by the inclusion of a spring/summer side and an autumn/winter side, each featuring materials and technologies suited to the respective season.
The spring/summer side is equipped with a cool-touch fabric known as SensICE that draws heat away from your body, helping to keep you cool during warmer nights. The fabric also has a natural Pro-Bio treatment to help prevent allergens, which tend to be more prevalent during these seasons. As a side sleeper, I've often struggled with overheating on summer nights, so this feature is a game changer.
On the other side, the autumn/winter side features a snuggly "Teddy bear" fabric along with wool, which helps insulate your body, keeping you cosy during cooler nights. If, like me, you're a side sleeper who enjoys a bit of snuggle factor when the temperature drops, you'll appreciate this thoughtfully crafted side.
The Duo 1400 doesn't skimp on support either. It features 1400 pocket springs that adapt individually to body movement, providing superior responsive support. This is particularly important for side sleepers who require a delicate balance of support and pressure relief, particularly at the shoulders and hips. The dynamic reinforced edge support adds durability, reduces roll-off, and optimises the sleep surface all the way to the edge of the mattress. This is a great feature for those who tend to move around a lot in sleep.
The mattress also includes a 'Truecomfort layer' for cushioning, breathable comfort, composed of 75% recycled PET plastic, which amounts to over 100 plastic bottles per double mattress! It also has a 'new life foundation layer' for additional, durable support with 91% recycled fibres. The mattress height is 32 cm and comes in both medium and firm options, catering to a wide range of comfort preferences.
Slumberland's dedication to sustainability is evident in their use of recycled materials and sustainable packaging. The mattress is packaged in I’m Greener™ packaging, consisting of 40% Green polythene from sugarcane, and 60% recycled polythene. As a reviewer who cares deeply about the impact of our choices on the environment, I appreciate Slumberland’s efforts in reducing waste.
From a price perspective, the Slumberland Duo 1400 2-in-1 is competitively priced in the mid-range, with an additional £39 for delivery to the room of choice.
In conclusion, the Slumberland Duo 1400 2-in-1 Mattress is a unique and innovative sleep solution. It's a year-round mattress that takes into account the changing seasons and provides comfort accordingly. With a focus on support, comfort, and sustainability, it appears to be a good choice for those looking for a versatile mattress.
