Why our sleep experts loved it

The Valerio Ortho Backcare Mattress is an orthopaedic mattress that focuses on the back pain niche, relying heavily on customers that require a more board-like feel to the mattress tension. Ideal specifically for those who sleep on their stomach or back, this may be one to miss for side sleepers. Read on to learn more about the compound and materials utilized in this new mattress from Bensons for Beds.

Let's start with the support layer. Featuring an impressive 1000 pocket springs this base layer represents great value for money and is normally found in mid-high quality mattresses across the world. The pocket spring support typically performs better than alternatives and the firm wound springs are ideal for those who require less bounce in their sleep. Side sleepers should avoid the Valerio back care as your side profile will not contour sufficiently to such a firm base and as such would recommend you consider a medium tension instead.

Onto that comfort layer and the Valerio has a natural wool layer which is both dense and breathable. The benefits of wool is widely documented with the material proving to be both breathable and eco friendly. One of the primary complaints sleepers have surrounds getting too hot or cold while they sleep. Thanks to this comfort layer you are kept at a mid range temperature throughout all seasons which helps to ensure a longer and deeper night of rest.

Guarantees for the Valerio are good also, with an impressive 5 years being covered in the event there are any manufacturing issues that occur. When you consider the average lifespan of a mattress the guarantee on offer here almost covers you for the full life expectancy of an average product prior to replacement.

Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • 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.

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

I Bought this mattress for a vintage bed with oak wooden head and foot. I never thought about the depth of the mattress when I chose it. When it was delivered it was taken upstairs and put on the bed. I was surprised to see that it had come right to the top of the foot board. I removed the plastic covering and made the bed up with sheets and duvet etc, which of course made it even higher. To get into bed I have to take a little leap. But the mattress is very comfy - firm but comfy that was just what I wanted. It has a gorgeous rich fabric cover on it and I would highly recommend. I just wish it had been a little less deep for my bed.

It is firm therefore it gives me support where I lacked it before. I like the ride height as it makes it easy to dismount, so to speak. The interior sings to me when I turn over (occasionally only at the moment).If it becomes regular I would have to contact you, bearing in mind it is almost new, and I am the sole user. Thank you.

Amazing customer service from the Milton keynes branch. I forgot the name of the sales representative, not sure if it was vasin? But he really went above and beyond to help. Not our first time and always a pleasure. We love our bed tv purchased about 3 years ago and we are now really pleased with the new mattress. Five stars all the way.

The main quality you want in a mattress is comfort and as we haven't slept on it for a night yet (just did a brief test) I can't honestly rate it for comfort but it seems very well-made and of good quality. It's a firm mattress which is what we wanted but it's in the spare bedroom so our guests will be the judges.

Mattress is fine, provides even support to all of the body, especially good edge support which lifts you as you stand up! Not sure which side is cool and which warm though as had little chance to be on it due to in hospital for dual knee replacement,

This mattress is very firm and I was a little worried about it as I am no expert at mattress buying and just knew I wanted fairly firm and not memory foam, but I followed the sales assistant's advice and really pleased with the purchase.

Extra firm mattress. Good quality. I expected the mattress to be a bit firmer, but it is the way it's should be I guess. Overall good quality mattress for the right price ( half price offer ).

Comfortable firm mattress, very pleased with the service and product. Only slight thing is that being firm you can feel the quilting and ties through the bedding.
