Why our sleep experts loved it
The St. Issey Memory Mattress is a product that promises to redefine your sleep experience by combining traditional spring support with a layer of highly responsive foam. It's a combination we have seen plenty over the last decade and ultimately rewards side sleepers looking for a mattress that offers a soft comfort rating, let's dive into the specifics.
Laying down on this mattress, it felt like landing on a cloud, albeit a bit too soft for me personally. You see, the softness enveloped me, providing an immediate sense of relaxation but not much in the way of support. For someone who enjoys the softer things in life, this mattress would feel like a dream come true.
The support layer
The mattress features an open coil spring unit that works in tandem with a layer of memory foam. This combination aims to offer even weight distribution and pressure-relieving comfort.
The open coil springs provided a level of support that felt balanced, not too firm but not too soft either. It felt as if the mattress was adapting to my body, offering a personalized sleep experience.
The comfort layer
The mattress incorporates a layer of memory foam that contours around your body, providing responsive comfort. It perfectly contoured around my shape, providing a sense of security and comfort that I often miss in firmer mattresses. That said, the support layer and comfort layer combination comes with a soft comfort rating, making it ideal for side sleepers who require a softer surface to relieve pressure on their hips and shoulders.
As a side sleeper, the softness of this mattress felt like a paradise. It provided the cushioning my hips and shoulders needed, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
While the mattress is a dream for side sleeping, it may not be the best choice for back and stomach sleepers. The softness, although luxurious, could potentially lead to spinal misalignment and discomfort for these sleep positions.
The St. Issey Memory Mattress is a fantastic choice for side sleepers looking for a soft, pressure-relieving sleep surface. Its unique combination of open coil springs and memory foam offers a sleep experience that is both comfortable and supportive.
