Wow, just wow. Today I'm looking at the Spink & Edgar Empire Mattress, with an impressive 21,700 Revolution® HD pocket springs. Before we get started, you should be aware that pocket springs are already considered at the top end of any mattress purchase. They are my favourite support system within a mattress by far. Outstripping both reflex foam and open coil by considerable margin when considering body contouring and support.  With 21,700 this is actually the most springs I have ever seen in a product which is going to offer an amazing level of support in the ultra-premium luxury category of mattresses.

Aside from the impressive support, the Spink & Edgar Empire Mattress also features a premium top layer featuring fillings of hemp, cashmere and wool. Topped with Egyptian cotton and silk, this is the most exclusive mattress reviewed to date.

Manufactured in the UK by expert craftsman in a handmade fashion, this mattress features a massive 5 rows of hand stitching, wrapped in a hand-tufted cover for further support and durability.

Finally we've got the impressive 5 year guarantee. Normally I make a big song and dance about how great this is against the normal 1 year, however, this is a premium mattress at a premium price, you would expect this sort of incredible guarantee at this sort of price point.

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

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

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 quiz 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.
  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • 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.

Premium natural fillings of hempure, cashmere wool and cashmere hair

Natural materials like wool, cashmere and silk are often used in higher quality mattresses. Their benefits are numerous with many preferring the supreme softness on offer while others appreciate the environmentally friendly offering. Another core benefit of natural layers is that they are extremely breathable and as a result create a safe, hygienic and temperature regulated nights sleep.

Luxurious layers of wool, sumptuous Egyptian cotton and silk

Egyptian cotton is naturally breathable and help provide a cool, comfortable environment. With more than 80% of the world's population sensitive to humidity, it is imperative to sleep on a bed that will regulate temperature and humidity in the bedroom.

5 rows of hand side stitching and a traditionally hand-tufted cover for added support and durability

Hand side stitching is a true mark of quality found in the upper-quality segment of mattresses. The process is very labor intensive as it involves attaching the side panel of the mattress to the pocket spring support layer found within a mattress helping to give better edge support and preventing roll-off.

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

Medium Firm is the optimal firmness for a mattress if you are looking for comfort but also suffer from some minor back problems. This is because this type of mattress will ease the amount of strain on your muscles but not in such a way to deter comfort, ensuring a great nights sleep
