Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

You spend one-third of your life sleeping, so it’s important to find a mattress that helps you sleep better and feel refreshed in the morning. Whether you struggle with back pain, neck pain, or just general aches and pains from an old mattress, a great mattress can make all the difference. The new Toulouse ortho mattress offers everything you need for a better night’s sleep thanks to a rigid support layer made up of firm pocket springs complimented by a luxurious layer of recycled and environmentally friendly fillings that are soft to the touch and perform well. The result is a comfortable and supportive new mattress that won’t break the bank.

Let’s start by looking at who this mattress is for, and in the case of the Toulouse, it's coming up trumps at suiting those who require a little bit of extra support, particularly in the back and neck areas. This firmer tensioned support layer of premium pocket springs will contour to your body and respond to your every movement while applying pressure where you need it most. Pocket springs are generally regarded as the best support layer available and outperform poorer quality open coil springs and reflex foam. The result is an ideally suited spring system to assist those who need that extra support.

In terms of who won’t find the Toulouse suitable and the list will include those who typically sleep on their side. Firmer mattresses simply do not have enough sink-age to adequately support a frame that consistently sleeps on their side and are generally best avoided if this is primarily how you sleep. 

When it comes to market conditions and where this mattress places, the price point is still in the budget price band, albeit only just. That said though we are seeing a lot of good quality components with the Toulouse that suggest it is punching above its price class and giving more than you would expect. The support layer of pocket springs for example is typically found in mid range and premium offerings while the recycled filling material is going to be where the retailer saves some of that money to justify the price point. Regardless of the cost saving in the comfort layer, you are getting better quality support for the price and the compromise here seems well worth it.

On the firmness scale we would categorise this as a 7 as there are other firmer options in the Bensons for Beds range that consist of very firm board-like bases. The 7 rating makes it ideal for back sleepers who require additional support while those who sleep on their side should typically consider something with a softer tension.

Onto customer feedback and the Toulouse is still very new meaning that there is no customer feedback to report. That said, this mattress has come along a few times over the years with different covers and names and it is not a configuration that we haven’t seen before from the retailer. This should give additional confidence as the product is safely in the remit of a manufacturer and brand that have been decades in the making with thousands of positive reviews. For those still not convinced, you also get a free 5-year guarantee that goes beyond the 1-year minimum that we see plaguing the industry.

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

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.


*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.
  • 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.


  • 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.

What Makes The Toulouse Ortho Mattress Great?

1000 individual pocket springs - provides premium comfort and support

Pocket springs are a type of spring system that is used in mattresses and upholstered furniture. They are often considered to be a step up from traditional coil springs, as they provide a number of advantages in terms of comfort, support, and durability with the main benefits of pocket springs being that they offer superior levels of support. This is because each spring is individually encased in its own fabric pocket, meaning that it is able to move independently of the others. This allows the springs to contour to your body more effectively, providing targeted support where you need it most.

Upholstered in a Belgian damask cover – gives you a soft, durable & breathable sleeping surface

A Belgian damask cover is a type of decorative fabric that is typically used to cover mattresses. It is usually made from linen or cotton and is characterised by its intricate patterns and designs.

Filling layers made with recycled materials – adds luxurious comfort

These materials are often softer and more supportive than traditional fillings, providing you with a more restful night's sleep. Further to this, these filling layers are made with recycled materials, which helps to reduce waste and conserve resources. This makes the product more sustainable and eco-friendly.

Orthopaedic support – firm layers for the ultimate support level

With an orthopaedic support, this mattress that provides a firm support level for ultimate comfort for those in need. The key benefit of orthopaedic support is that helps to support the spine and alleviate pressure points. This makes it an ideal choice for those suffering from back pain or other orthopaedic conditions.

Tufted mattress - for added firmness and durability

Tufted mattresses are great because the tufts tie the outer casing of the mattress into the springs, same too with comfort layers. The result is a tighter mattress which keeps everything together, however, an additional degree of firmness does result.

Comfort rating - Firm comfort

A firm comfort rating is ideal for back sleepers who value more push-back from their base layer. The result is a resistive support that suits average BMI or heavier with a view to improve or alleviate back and neck pain. Side sleepers might find this tension to be too firm for the hip and shoulder to sink sufficiently.

Free 5-year guarantee – for total peace of mind

A 5 year guarantee goes far beyond the average offered in an industry plagued by 1-year mandatory minimums. What's more, the average life expectancy of mattresses comes in at around 7 years meaning you get almost full lifetime coverage with this sort of guarantee.

Quality assured - made in Britain

British made products adhere to strict quality control standards and are often made and manufactured locally which gives for a faster and more seamless logistical and delivery experience.
