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.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard 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.

Performance

  • 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.

Odour

  • 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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Tempur Original Elite Mattress Great?

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

Comfort Grade – Medium

A medium tension comfort grade is a good middle-of-the-road level of firmness and softness that gives the vast majority of people a fantastic nights sleep. Dubbed the Goldilocks of mattress firmnesses, the tension is generally regarded as a one-size-fits-all that suits average weighted people who are both side sleepers and back sleepers alike. For those with a bit more weight to them you should perhaps consider a firmer tension, same too if you are lower BMI, perhaps consider a softer tension.

25cm depth

25cm depth is about average for a mattress, it leaves plenty of room for good quality fillings while still allowing you to fit a standard sheet over it.

Premium memory foam mattress

Premium Memory foam is a very popular and luxurious mattress layer to aid in comfort. The buzz around memory foam is well justified, it is incredibly comfortable and makes it feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Standard caveats apply however, memory foam can make you hot and this may present a problem for those that do find themselves getting warm through the night. For those with this issue, take a look at a Latex mattress. For everyone else though, you cannot beat it.

Removable cover, washable at up to 60°C

Removable covers help keep things fresh. The average person keeps their mattress for around 7 to 8 years and over time that can make your mattress a fairly unhygienic place to be. Thanks to the removable cover, you can sleep easy knowing that your mattress and your health, are protected.

Low Maintenance Mattress

Low maintenance mattresses are typically one sided meaning that they do not need to be flipped. This is beneficial because, well, mattresses can be heavy and it's a bit of a pain. Another benefit if that single sided mattresses actually tend to be a little bit cheaper, since you're saving money on a layer you won't be sleeping on half the time anyway.

Non turn, non-flip

A non turn and non flip mattress is considered very easy maintenance with very little else to do in terms of keeping the mattress in best working condition. This means that the mattress is one sided and has the comfort layer at the top of the mattress only. This means no flipping nor turning is necessary to provide long lasting comfort

We wanted to try an Emma mattress so just bought the bed,my wife said she tried this mattress and it was so soft she just sank into it.i didn't try this but took my wife's opinion.on sleeping on it I found it not as soft as she suggested,only then did she say she only tested the edge.

I can on time and was taken up stairs. We left it a long time to settle but still has a smell. Will take some time to get use to.

It's not bad at all. Give it a, day or so as it is different to traditional mattresses. Always use a mattress protector.
