The Whitfield Pocket Sprung Mattress is one of the most popular new mattresses from Dreams, sold under the Dreams Workshop brand and pitched as a Team GB Olympic games mattress.
On paper there is a lot to like about this fairly inexpensive mattress. Featuring pocket springs at this price point is really impressive, we would have expected the lower-quality open coil traditional spring setup to feature which is a welcome upgrade that will help contour to your body and give far better and more even support.
The comfort layer of the mattress features natural wool fillings for ultimate premium comfort that works well alongside the soft tension pocket springs.
This is definitely a mattress that should be at the top of your list if you are looking for a low cost, high quality mattress in a softer tension that will suit those that have a soft preference, or, prefer sleeping on their side with a slim profile.
The Whitfield Pocket Sprung Mattress is still fairly new but we've managed to find 200+ reviews and a consumer satisfaction coming in at an impressive 91%. Reviews make mention of the soft tension being ideal for side sleepers who would normally find their hips and shoulders receiving poor pressure to comfort and creating an otherwise unpleasant experience. It helps highlight that there is a place for soft mattresses and that place is typically for those that are of a lower BMI or, whom sleep on their side.
Negative reviews relate to tension, with many believing that the product should be recategorised as medium. This is somewhat reflective of the fact that this mattress did indeed used to be categorised as a medium but has since been classified as soft. The amount of negative reviews is minimal and the vast majority seem happy with the support, regardless of whether it is treated as a medium or soft.
Reasons to Buy
Natural fillings are breathable, environmentally friendly and cooling. They are probably one of the better comfort layers that perform exceptionally well for the vast majority of people.
Positive reviews are still coming in but initially looking good.
Reasons to Avoid
Some debate over firmness, with Dreams recategorising to soft from medium, but many debate the tension still feels like a medium.
