There’s much more to buying a mattress than its size or price tag – it’s also very important to choose one that is supportive and comfortable for your body.
It’s estimated that those who sleep for 6-8 hours a night spend roughly a third of their lives asleep – and the last thing you want to do is spend a third of your life on an uncomfy mattress.
That’s why we’re here at Bedworld to help you find your perfect mattress and today we’re going to start with pocket sprung mattresses – a pocket sprung mattress with a unique supportive structure that gives you unparalleled comfort and a high quality sleep.
What’s So Special about Pocket Sprung Mattresses?
Pocket sprung mattresses are special because they have three individual layers that give you the best of both pocket and memory foam mattresses.
The top layer is made of memory foam, which responds to warmth and pressure to provide excellent, even support for your whole body. This improves your blood circulation and relieves any pressure on your joints – ideal if you sleep on your side.
The middle layer consists of up to 3,000 pocket springs, which are enclosed within individual fabric housing and work independently from the other springs. Each spring responds to the pressure above it and the greater the number of pockets, the greater the support.
Finally, the bottom layer is made of reflex foam, which springs back into shape once the pressure has been relieved to maintain the shape of the mattress.
Check the pocket sprung mattress is supporting you by lying down and sliding a hand beneath the small of your back. If your hand fits easily, it’s too soft and if it doesn’t fit at all it’s too firm. And if it’s somewhere in between – congratulations, you’ve found your perfect mattress.
Advantages of Pocket Sprung Mattresses When Sharing a Bed
Pocket sprung mattresses come in a range of tensions – soft, medium and firm – so it’s easy to find the right level of comfort for your body and weight.
If you and your partner are different weights, a pocket sprung mattress gives localised support so you won’t be disturbed by your partner’s movements during the night. They also provide good ventilation so you won’t get as hot during the night as on a solid foam mattress.
