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.

Personal Experiences

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.

Sleeping positions

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.

*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.
  • 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.
