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

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • 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.

AMAZING firm mattress!

I didn't realise how bad my old mattress was until I got this! I have had to have a thai massage every month for a few months due to terrible back and shoulder pain.. I was unable to sleep and it was terrible. I tried the bed simulator thing and this mattress was the cheapest on my list. Tbh I found it more comfortable than the most expensive on my personalised list. Its extremely firm and perfect for my troublesome back. If I wake in the night I can drift back very quickly. I also purchased a tempur pillow (firm) to compliment my mattress and omg best gift to myself ever. If you need a super firm and very sturdy mattress this is for you! Thank you Dreams amazing customer service from enquiry to delivery!

Mattress fit for the princess and the pea

When we first received the mattress I remember thinking on first night oh crikey weve made a huge mistake, it was a lot firmer than I remember when trying it in the shop. I thought its okay time to change it if we want to so we persevered and I can now say it is the most comfortable mattress Ive ever had, after each night its getting more and more comfortable We are now two weeks in and I can honestly say we have a better quality of sleep, so if your not sure just keep trying and you will find it becoming softer as time goes on. Still not happy then its reassuring to know that its possible to have a replacement

5
So comfortable

After years of sleeping on poor quality mattresses, we knew it was time that we desperately needed to upgrade. This mattress was everything we could have hoped for! I thought I just had a bad back and had resigned myself to that fact, but this mattress has changed everything! It is so comfortable, firm without being hard, and although you cant feel it you definitely notice the benefit of the gel layer keeping you at a perfect temperature. We are sleeping better than we have in years, and the quality of this mattress means we know it will be comfortable for a long while to come! Very happy consumers :)

5
Excellent mattress very comfortable

My therapur acti gel response 1000 was bought alongside the Ellis 200i adjustable bed. I suffer with ankylosing spondylitis so needed a firm mattress to support my back and often woke through the night when sleeping on previous mattresses. I have found this mattress to be the most comfortable I have ever slept on. There is no movement in the mattress while sharing this bed alongside my wife. The purchase was made through the Merthyr store with Lee being the assistant. The benefits of this mattress were explained to us completely by Lee without him being at all pushy. We found the price reasonable

5
What A Difference!

The TheraPur ActiGel mattress we bought came at a time when we decided to upgrade our current mattress. Trying it out in store helped the decision and we both felt this mattress gave us a good level of comfort at a great price. We didnt have to wait too long for delivery, which came on time, and ran smoothly. Now, a few weeks into owning the matress, I have noticed my back no longer aches in the morning and we both are feeling more energised and ready for the day. Really happy withbour purchase!

5
It really does as promised, a cool night's sleep

Being a duvet on, duvet off person, who's struggled with being too hot in bed, I thought I'd give this a go. I wasn't convinced it would work, but thought I'd send it back if not. But, I've been really pleased with it. Keeps at a great, even and comfortable temperature. I love that it's firm, but not too much. Doesn't collapse at the sides when you sit on the edge, or make a big dent if I work in bed. Has a nice quality, luxury feel. Would recommend a deeper fitted sheet.

5
PERFECT NIGHTS SLEEP!

This mattress is AMAZING! My partner suffers with a bad back constantly which disturbs her sleep every night. Since using this mattress, her back is supported in such a way that the back pains are near enough gone when she's in bed making so a perfect night sleep. I'm even getting the full best night sleep since using this mattress which is rare as I used to wake up every hour with un-comfort.

4
Excellent Therapur Mattress

After a lot of research I decided on the Therapur mattress. I am certainly loving the comfort and support of this product. I opted for one without the attached padded topper as I had bought one previously. I was most impressed with the service at Dreams, Dartford (Katy) and with delivery service who collected my old mattress and carried the new one upstairs.

5
Comfy mattress

Very comfortable mattres... Dreams were brilliant in letting me try mattresses multiple times without making me feel uncomfortable. I'm glad I tried them out because what I thought I wanted was a hard mattres, but I really needed after trying them was a softer one and I've been getting up with no back pain.

5
Should of changed earlier

Mattress is lovely to lay on supportive but still soft. Wake up feeling really energised. I didn't believe changing my mattress would make such a difference but it really has improved my sleep and mood the next day. Delivery by Dreams was well communicated and I was informed every step of the way.

5
Great staff and mattress recommendation

We went into store to try out some mattresses. The staff at the Stevenage store were wonderful and were able to suggest some recommended mattresses. We eventually settled on this one, and so glad we did! Have been sleeping so well ever since it arrived. The service from Dreams has been fantastic!

5
A great cool sleep,to be gained by these mattresse

It's excellent,now I can sleep throughout the night,whilst my body temperature remains a cool constant.No more sweats,just an extremely relaxing cool,soothing sleep.Whats more,I'm ready for the next day.Goodbye to those lathargic morning.Even my husband has noticed how much better I am.

5
TheraPur kingsize mattress

This mid to upper priced matress is a great investment in sound sleep for years to come. I totally recommend it. I suggest in-store purchase as essential to ensure the correct firmness rating via the Dreams testing equipment. No issues whatsoever, superb comfort and durability.

5
Comfortable mattress, great service

We tried this in the Liverpool (Speke) store where Zak assisted us with our selection - he was helpful and friendly. We ordered this online on Black Friday. The Mattress is very comfortable and the delivery team kept us informed throughout. Overall a very good experience.

5
Happy

Took a couple of days to get used to my matress but love it now. I used the bed machine thing to analyse my body and pressure points and all that and chose my mattress, staff was really helpful. This is the first proper mattress Ive ever bought. Happy with it thank you

5
Cosy and Comfortable

This mattress offers firm support with pocket springs that contour to your movement allowing relief to common pressure points. With its open cell structure it allows maximum airflow to provide you with a cool and comfortable sleep throughout the night.

5
A comfortable & cool feeling mattress at last.

Search for a mattress over; having tried famous foam ones which got sent back this was a huge improvement. Extremely comfortable and not hot to sleep on. The hi-tech mattress selector gizmo in the Dreams shop worked very well. Thoroughly recommended.

5
Great Mattress & Experience

Great mattress and perfect balance for two people with very different sleeping preferences. Both Cheltenham & Glasgow (Clydebank) stores took on board our requirements and made the buying and delivery process smooth (&exciting!!)

5
Mattress

I've bought several beds and mattresses from Dreams for many years and never had any issues with the company or the products. Most recent purchase was a double mattress, which arrived on time and it is an excellent, comfy mattres.

5
TheraPur Actigel Response Mattress.

Best purchase weve made it supports my husbands back and it is so comfy youre reluctant to get out of bed. It regulates the temperature in the bed so were never too hot. Wish wed bought one sooner. Cant recommend enough.

5
Great Mattress, but to firm for the wife

Great mattress. We went for a firm and I have found it very comfortable, supportive and cool. Unfortunately it is to firm for my wife so we have taken advantage of Dreams 40 day exchange and gone for a medium.

5
Buying a mattress

Fantastic service. From start to finish. Assistant was over and above helpful. The process was easy. Text messages and phone calls informing of delivery day and time. Absolutely thrilled with the whole service

5
Supportive and Very Comfortable

Super comfortable mattress, yet supportive as well as comfortable. Currently waiting for our divan to be delivered and currently the mattress is on the floor, yet still it's a great night sleep for both of us.

5
Great mattress choice!

Good comfortable mattress which is reasonable price. We find the gel top a good match for us and the cooling effect is great. We chose the firm one but theres options to suit differences which is good.

5
Perfect mattress for a good nights sleep

Was looking for a mattress that was firm but still allowed some give to mould and support the body. It does the trick. For the first time a good nights sleep can be had. Would definitely recommend it

4
Good mattress

The aspect of this mattress is great, the fabrics used in making it are really good. It is a firm mattress and I had a softer one before and I am a Ill adjusting to it but it is a good mattress

4
Very firm, if not too firm

It is a very firm mattress (we chose firm) and the foam topping makes it very warm. We are using the summer quilt in winter. I think it may too hot in the summer but who knows? Time will tell

5
Comfortable mattress

We bought the therapur matress and are very impressed, it's really comfortable, well made and supportive. It's quite firm and we've not had it long so need to see if it lasts as long as planned

5
Purchase of my bed and mattress

I was apprehensive that a mattress can eliminate any aches, pains and restless sleep but I have to say it does and I am very happy with my purchase such a relief to be having great nights sleep

5
Comfortable mattress

This has helped with my lower back and hips. I had an hernia operation and waking up in the morning hasnt been the greatest but this mattress has helped me feel less aches when waking up.

5
Quality

I used the sleep match system which said i needed a firm matress. While i cannot fault the quality of the product i will probably Have to exchange it for a medium model as it is too hard.

5
Our new mattress

We were looking for a firm mattress to replace our old one and are very pleased with the TheraPur ActiGel response mattress that we chose. Hopefully it will last as long as the old one.

5
Great service and great mattress

Great service from the cliftonmoor store in york. Used the thing that measures your body and reccomends the best mattress for you. We ended up buying a recommended one and its amazing.

4
Great nights sleep

The mattress is very comfortable, for me. But, I sleep right on the edge of the bed, which tends to drop, and I roll out of bed, (Ive now learnt to keep away from the edge, lol)
