Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

If you’re interested in buying a memory foam mattress from the popular brand Simply Bensons, there are a few things you should know before you pull the trigger. Let’s take a look at these before jumping into the review; Simply Bensons is a part of the in-house mattress offering from Bensons for Beds.  The retailer and brand produce two different types of memory foam mattresses in this specification, with each type boasting different tension.

Simply Bensons utilise pressure relieving memory foam that reacts to your body’s contours giving you a deep a luxurious comfort layer that performs amicably.  Simply Bensons are so satisfied that you will love this product range that there is no trial period offered, meaning it is important to choose the correct tension from the outset. We personally recommend this Westford Memory Support Mattress for the average person who sleeps on their back, side or stomach as it's medium tension works as a one-size-fits-all approach that keeps the majority of people happy. If however you are a dedicated side sleeper or have a lower BMI than average, you should consider the standard non-support branded model which offers a softer tension. 

The first thing that really drew me to this mattress was the upper comfort layer. Simply Bensons uses a top-quality memory foam of deep and luxurious qualities. Additionally, the soft-touch knitted fabric cover on the Westford is particularly soft, and it feels great against your skin while also being particularly breathable.

Onto the bottom layer and this product comes with a traditional spring unit that is both sufficient and supportive that represents great value for money. I personally prefer pocket spring as a support layer, however, open coil spring units like the one found in this mattress represent better value for the average consumer and perform well enough.

Simply Bensons has a solid memory foam mattress in the Westford. This mattress is comfortable, responsive, and comes with a great 5-year warranty. Overall, the Westford is a great choice for sleepers who want a quality mattress without having to break the bank.

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 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

  • 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.

What Makes The Westford Memory Support Mattress Great?

Open coil spring unit with a super supportive edge

Open coil units are part of the support layer that sits at the base of the mattress. This layer can come in a variety of different tensions and offers a cost effective solution for those looking for a supportive mattress. We find open coil tensions have a relatively decent longevity relative to the price point that consumers pay while offering a pleasant sleep experience.

Pressure relieving memory foam to react to your body’s contours

The memory foam responds to your body heat and weight, molding to your shape and providing customised support. This can help to reduce tossing and turning, and provide a more comfortable night's sleep. 

Recycled fibre, quilted top sleep surface

This helps to provide extra support and comfort for those who sleep on it, while also helping to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill sites.

Soft-touch knitted fabric for added comfort

Knitted covers offer a good degree of breathability that helps keep you cool while you sleep which is also particularly important for hygiene. Knitted covers are also incredibly soft making the fabric an ideal outer layer.

Easy-care no turn mattress

Non turn mattresses have a few benefits, most importantly that they do not need to be flipped, saving time effort and energy that can be better focussed toward getting a good nights sleep. Do be aware however that you should still be rotating your mattress in line with the manufacturers guidelines for the product. 

BSI - British Standard Kitemark™ accredited

The UK has some of the strictest standards of manufacture with which to comply too. This is great news for the consumer as you can be sure of a quality product.

Mattress height: 22cm

When it comes to good quality mattresses, there's a somewhat loose argument around quality versus depth. While there is no clear-cut correlation, it does stand to reason that a deeper mattress has more room for deeper comfort layers. 22cm is considered a reasonable height while still being suitable for normal sized fitted sheets

Firmness rating: Medium

A medium tension mattress is largely suitable for most people of average BMI. Not too soft, nor too firm this mattress has enough softness in the tension to allow you to sink, while providing enough support to contour to your body.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

Made in Britain

These are made and manufactured in the Great Britain, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine Great Britain manufacturing.
