Why our sleep experts loved it
If you suffer from back pain, buying a new mattress is probably not the first thing that springs to mind. However, investing in your sleep can have a big impact on how much pain you’re in during the day while the lack of sleep you get every night has a major impact on your body and how it feels the next day. A quality mattress is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make sure you get more rest while also preventing aches and pains caused by uncomfortable beds. If you’re looking for something that offers support without breaking the bank, then the Spring King Grand Ortho 2000 Mattress could be exactly what you are looking for.
First hitting the market a few years ago, the Spring King Grand Ortho 2000 Mattress is sold exclusively through the popular mattress retailer Mattress Next Day. Reviews are strong and there are plenty of long term happy customers. Let’s dig in and look at what makes this one particularly great.
Who is the mattress for?
The above may give some idea as to suitability but let’s break it down further. The Spring King Grand Ortho 2000 Mattress has a support layer of high quality pocket springs that are wound in a firm tension that prove particularly ideal for those looking for orthopedic support along with additional support for the back and neck while you sleep. This tension has numerous benefits for specific types of sleepers provided you are primarily a back or stomach sleeper who does not sleep typically on their side. Onto the comfort layer and this mattress comes with 100% polyester fibres which are a very common filling found in products at this price point. These comfort fibres are breathable and soft and are ideal for those who are looking for a great all-season mattress that won’t get too hot nor too cold while you sleep. This helps ensure the mattress remains hygienic for a number of years which will help longevity and durability.
Who is the mattress not for?
With orthopedic mattresses there is a very limited window of suitability. As such you should not consider this type of specialist mattress if you do not require additional support for your neck and back, otherwise you risk not finding optimal comfort with this particular combination. One of the results of a firmer wound tension in the base layer is that this mattress will likely not suit side sleepers as there is not enough sink-age to accommodate the hip and shoulder while on your side.
Where in the market does the mattress compete?
This product fits fairly comfortably into the budget marketplace proving itself to be largely affordable for most people. One thing that does push this mattress and its quality beyond its price point into a higher band is in the pocket spring base which is often found in mid-range and premium mattresses. While the comfort layer does indeed belong in the budget segment, the springs are a more than welcome addition to this product that should extend longevity beyond that of poorer quality open coil springs normally found at this price.
What is the level of firmness experienced as a scale of 1 to 10?
The firmness level typically comes in at an 8 on our scale (1 being soft and 10 being extra firm), making it a firmer than average product that breaches slightly above a medium-firm. This means that the Spring King Grand Ortho 2000 is true to specification and sits in the firmer camp meaning back sleepers should get exactly what they need from the product.
What do other customers say?
Customer feedback is still coming in but we do have some long term reviews to report on and so far it does seem to be looking really strong. Happy customers are plenty and report on the great value offered from the product with others complimenting the comfort and good degree of firmness. Unhappy customers are very few and far between but we did find mention of poor edge to edge support which meant that users were unable to utilise the full surface area of the mattress. This shouldn’t cause too much bother for most people who tend not to extend their bodies toward the very edge of their mattress while they sleep, however, it is a valid concern that we do see with some of the more budget mattresses in the lineup.
