If you currently own a mattress that you aren’t happy with, there are a few telltale signs that it’s time to buy a new one. The most obvious ones are when you wake up with aches and pains, or experience back pain that doesn’t go away. When purchasing a mattress, you need to consider three things: its comfort, its longevity, and its price. Fortunately the Solar Mattress ticks quite a lot of these boxes so let's dive in to what makes it great.
What makes the Solar Mattress great?
Today we are taking a look at the Solar Mattress from premium retailer Bensons for Beds. The mattress is brand new to the range and so long term reviews are still coming in, however, the composition of the Solar mattress is one we have seen a few times over the years and can provide you with luxurious comfort and support while you sleep.
The support system which sits at the base of the mattress is comprised of a reasonable 325 open-coil springs which are used to create the Solar Mattress, helping to evenly distribute your body weight thanks to the reactive springs working in unison together and contouring to each of your movements. Having even weight distribution across your body is important for two reasons. First, it will reduce pressure and pain in various areas of your body, allowing you to drift off to sleep easily. Second, the open-coil spring system includes an outer steel frame for durability and stability that helps maximise surface area without having soft edges that have discomfort and consistent support in the edges. To provide cushioned support throughout the night, the Solar Mattress includes a foundation layer of new-life yarns which are soft and breathable while also proving very comfortable, particularly for the price point. Additional to this comfort layer are polyester fillings, which are made from a minimum of 70% recycled plastic bottle materials and prove to be particularly good for the environment meaning that you can sleep consciously as well as comfortably.
You can't go wrong with Bensons for Beds Smile Mattress. This is a British company that has been making mattresses for over a decade. All of their products are made in the UK and have been designed to give you a comfortable night’s sleep for many years to come, evidenced by the large 5 year guarantee that comes as standard with this mattress.
