What to look for in the best mattress?

First thing you’ll see when looking at a new mattress is the cover, which mattress providers call “ticking” and helps the best mattress brands make their product look as attractive as possible. 

 

Of course, looks can be deceiving and that’s why it’s important to look past a bright exterior and examine the quality of the mattress itself. 

 

Luckily, the “ticking isn’t there just to stand out, the material needs to be of high quality cloths which are woven or knitted into cotton yards to give a strong finish.

 

Cheaper, less quality mattresses will have cloths made from polyester and are often printed. You’ll also find some cheaper mattresses which are stitch bond fabrics. 

 

The best mattresses may also have tickling with special qualities such as anti allergy, anti-bacterial, water resistant etc.

 

What are the best mattresses?

 

The very best mattresses will have further options, with one of the most popular options being effective thermal regulation.

 

Through the use of evaporation technology and moisture wicking, which help move perspiration away from the body and through the fabric, where it will then evaporate to help you feel cooler and more comfortable.

 

Our UK Best Mattress brands guide helps you see which companies offer this technology.

Spring or Foam Mattress?

One of the more obvious dilemmas is deciding whether you want a pocket spring or foam mattress, and the decision here is dependent on what you’re looking for.

 

In pocket spring mattresses, the springs are sewn into individual

fabric pockets. The best pocket spring mattresses tend to be firmer

mattress types and will provide core support.

 

Huge advances have been made providing even more spring

mattress options to suit differing needs.

The inside of the mattress can be constructed so that it provides

additional support through the middle to give additional support to

heavier parts of the body such as hips & shoulders.

Some of the best mattresses will even allow differing tensions to be

created within the same mattress - allowing the user to adjust

themselves.

Foam mattresses are proving to be an extremely popular mattress option of late. The great thing about foam mattresses is the flexibility they offer given the ability to achieve different levels of comfort & support. The best foam mattresses are made from various layers of high quality foam, offering the right level of support. 

 

Still undecided? Of course you can go for a hybrid option, which has the best of both worlds, foam & pocket spring. One of the best mattresses in the UK for this is Casper’s Hybrid Mattress, which features 5 components, including resilient springs & a high quality foam topping.

What is the best mattress in the UK?

That’s what this comparison will try help decipher! 

 

The real question is, “what is the best mattress for me?”. The answer to that is dependent on your needs, but the below checklist let’s you know what to look out for:

  • What size mattress do I need?

  • Do you want a pocket spring or memory foam mattress?

  • Do you want a firm or medium tension mattress?

  • What brand do I want?

  • Can I trial the mattress?

  • Does the mattress brand offer free delivery?

 

Which is the best mattress brand?

Given the recent advancements in technology, there’s now less differentiation when it comes to quality of the best mattresses & brands. 

 

The main thing to look out for here is the type of mattress you’re looking for as opposed to the brand. Some, such as Nectar specialise in foam mattresses, whereas a brand such as Eve offers a wider range including pocket spring mattresses.

Of course, if you’re undecided on the best mattress brand for you, there’s always the option of visiting a John Lewis store or online on Mattressman, where they stock all the best mattress brands for you to sample or compare against.
