With brands doing lots of work on their online reputation, it's pretty hard for an average shopper to get to the bottom of customer satisfaction. That said, customers give these mattresses good marks overall. However, there were some complaints from sleepers that didn't feel as comfortable. so look below to see if the mattress specifications will work for your body type!
Mattress supportiveness is an important factor for everyone -- especially stomach and back sleepers. Also, deeper support can be a make or break for side sleepers who need response but are at risk for back problems. These mattresses are above average when it comes to support. That said, some folks didn't feel supported enough so if you are heavier, make sure to take a harder look.
This mattress does well for most in terms of providing edge support. Some customers weren't entirely satisfied with the edge support.
Having a mattress that is highly durable can save you thousands. But, as companies focus more on making money, everything from clothes to bedding degrades faster. These mattresses, specifically, have mixed ratings when it comes to longevity. Each bed is different so it may last years for you, but others may not be so lucky. Do some additional research on your mattress choice to make sure it fits with your body.
Reading online reviews is a wonderful way to find out if a specific product will work for you. These mattreses are highly rated overall by customers, but there are some that didn't share the same experience. Research more below to see if one of these mattresses will work with your body type.
Mattress support is the most important thing to maintain a healthy back while you sleep. You want a mattress that supports your health rather than causes you nightly aches. These mattresses do well working with your body and providing good support.
For those that like sitting close to the mattress, edge support is one of the most important attributes. These mattresses are supportive along the edges and don't suffer from too much contouring versus the center.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Popular among readers, the bowling ball test does a good job showing firmness and contouring, but also evenness of support. If a mattress doesn't have even response, some folks may experience back pain or other issues. Luckily, these mattresses have good ratings here and shouldn't have that as a problem.
Mattresses don't provide as long-lived comfort as they used to. A mattress that lasts 15 years is a hard thing for find. Yet, finding that diamond in the rough can save you lots of money. Unfortunately, these mattresses get mixed reviews on durability. Some customers report no problems, but others have issues with the durability over a shorter horizon than average.
Don't get me wrong, it is an okay mattress, but not the kind of mattress that I was really after. I got sold on their Octaspring tech, but in all it just makes weird bumbs in the mattress. I didn't feel as supported as I was before.View More Reviews
The Dormeo bed has a bounce to it that other beds don't. It's good for snuggling up with your SO if you know what I mean. :) Highly recommended.
I've had my new bed for a couple months and it already has some weird dips in it that weren't there at the beginning. I don't feel anything differently yet, but I expect that it may sag soon.
I just love this bed. It is really comfortable and curves to my body when I sleep, which is exactly what I was looking for! I might even buy one for my kids because I love it so much!
I knew I was taking a risk when I selected this mattress because it is new technology, but overall I really like the feel. It's unlike other beds that I've had.
Truly Great Mattress, so comfortable and supportive
I am very pleased with this mattress. It took some getting used to. Having slept on it for 3 months now, I can feel a difference in my back. The support it provides is excellent. It is unfortunate that I couldn't try the mattress before buying, but based on the description from Dormeo, I went for it. This mattress feels as good as other well known and more expensive memory foam mattresses. One negative is that there are no handles on the sides of the mattress to enable rotating it. So it is difficult to hold it to rotate. It comes rolled up, and then you open it and roll it out. But if I had any reason to return it, i don't believe i would ever be able to fit it down the stairs again. Fortunately that is not necessary for me, but worth considering before buying.
We brought this mattress after suffering problems with back pain with our previous mattress, this is a well built and quality matress and the Octaspring technology seems to work well. Only snag I have is that its starting to become soft in some areas after one week of use hence why I’ve given it 4 stars so far. I will review this again after 1 month.
Wonderful, firmness perfect, can lie on it all day, like I sometimes need to do without the usual backache from my old mattress. It is worth the money, and I look forward to going to bed every night now.
It's medium/firm so excellent for lying on back and good for side sleeping as well, I just prefer the Mistral as it's softer at the shoulder end due to the different zones
Very comfortable except at the edges. Bought it for my back problems. Getting a comfortable nights sleep but find that when sleeping over 8 hours, back hurts a little.
A very comfortable mattress, you'll sleep wonderfully on it. It can't get 5 stars though, mainly for one of the reasons you'll see on the reviews that told you how good the mattress is. It's very thin, which you don't notice when sleeping on it due to the foam they've used. The problem comes with bedding, mattress protectors and fitted sheets, even Dormeo's own are for thicker mattresses. You'll constantly find yourself rolling over on big clumps of excess sheet, your protector will move around a lot. It's a shame because the mattress is great, if only Dormeo would make a protector and sheet for this mattress specifically...as this is the only decent mattress on the market that is this thin.
If I am honest, the mattress is not a comfortable as I imagined it would be. Although, for the price I am not complaining as it is still a good mattress. I think it may just be a bit harder that I thought it was going to be. I still seem to end up in the middle of the bed for some reason?
This mattress is the best. It comes vacuum packed and needs to be unrolled and left for several hours so that it reaches its maximum capacity. Bought for rugby player who finds that it is the best mattress he has had. His body is perfectly supported from top to toe and he has a very relaxed deep sleep. Would recommend this mattress to anyone who suffers from aches and pains.
I am delighted with the mattress it is comfortable and seems to be helping to alleviate some of the pain I experience due to a long-term condition. Still getting used to the pillow but it was free so I am not complaining - its firmer than my previous pillows so I am adjusting to it over time. I would certainly recommend the mattress, I am delighted with it.
It's really comfy and I'm very happy with it. It's not too hot, as with some thicker memory foam mattresses. It took about 8 weeks for the new chemical smell to disperse though. Given the chance it would be better to air it for as long as possible before using. I gave it two weeks, but longer would have been better.
This was O.K. However my Dunlop was just the same, so no better or worse. The pillow was dredful. Hard, couldn't get it to shape my neck or head. I think these are pilowas they can not sell.
High quality, very comfy mattress - pleased with purchase. A bit thinner than I imagined it would be, but it is the size stated, so it was me imagining it to be higher that was the problem.
We thought we would sleep a lot better than we use to. Perhaps we expected too much.
Very comfortable, no sign of the back problems which plagued me for years
Although this mattress is a lot 'thinner' than others I have had - so my wooden frame is almost as high as the mattress, it is excellent - exactly as it says. And whilst I still don't sleep as much as I should do, it has certainly made a difference. Definitely recommend !
I bought this mattress for my Son, he has joint problems and is a big lad about 15 stone, he loves the mattress,He was skeptical to start with as he helped pay for it. he says he has never slept so well
Absolutely love it ,had a memory foam mattress before this one which was excellent ,so after lots of research decided upon this after reading many positive reviews .Highly recommended .
The mattress is very comfortable, good depth and feels great. As I already had a memory foam mattress that I purchased many years ago at a much greater price i
Thought my old mattress & topper could not be beaten but it has. So comfortable, sleep came easy & following day just feel rested & ready for the day ahead.
It does the job. I grew up in foam mattresses and at a fraction of the price of others it's a good deal. The smell took a long time to fade though
Delighted with my new mattress. I never realised what a good night's sleep was until I bought this mattress. So comfortable
So much cheaper than alternatives of same quality. Love the cooling layer which offers a little give to the firm memory foam
Very comfortable - best I've had! A bit too warm in hot weather, but the comfort makes up for that.
I was very happy with the size fit on to my bed frame very well. I would recommend this to others.
Great product, easy transaction and super quick delivery. I'd certainly order in line again.
Superb value for the money! Really happy with this Memory Plus mattress. Nice and comfy!
Fantastic best sleep as I'm disabled I've never slept so good now sleep night through
comfortable supportive mattress - good for relieving aches and pains after a long day
I find I am sleeping a lot better without a bad neck and back in morning
Very comfy mattress, great nights sleep.best thing I have ever brought.
Excellent product, excellent quality very comfortable nights sleep.
I purchased the Octaspring mattress at the Ideal Home Show in London. Within 18 months the mattress had developed deep splits in the foam. After a lengthy battle Dormeo replaced the mattress which developed the same fault within 9 months. I notified Dormeo who passed my problem to their Quality team and have been trying to get a response from them for at least seven weeks now. This mattress was a very expensive mistake and I would give zero stars to both the product and company if the option existed
We have had a king size dormeo mattress for 1.5 years now. It has many valleys (sinking spots) . we have turned it very regularly and it has gotten to the point that there are very few good spots left. A lot of sinking everywhere. Very very dissapointed and would not recommend.
In a year and a half this mattress has started causing a bad back and terrible sleeps. It started off amazingly and then as the coils gave up it started to sag and sag and sag. I would NEVER buy this one again and I would tell anyone who is looking at it to give it a miss. There are much better and much cheaper mattresses out there. Total rip off.
I decided to buy one of these after a friend of mine from bridge club told me about how wonderful they are. I was impressed by their connection to the Royal family. Unfortunately, the bed hasn't been what I expected. I wake up with back pain and think it is because of that bed -- way too firm.View More Reviews
went to a store yesterday that had both Hypnos and Vi-Spring. Hypnos was WAY too firm...solid like a rock.
Was gifted one of these by my company and it was okay for what I would consider a luxury brand. It is a bit firm, but I like my beds firm.
I've had this bed for the past 3 months and it is divine. I highly recommend it.
I was able to get one of these Hypnos beds and I have finally been able to sleep through the night again.
Something is wanting in this mattress, but I can't put my finger on it. I was very impressed by their branding and acclaim, and was hopeful that this would what my sleep needed. But, I'm still not sure.
This was my big investment and it was definitely worth it. The materials are very high quality and there has been no off-gassing or any other negatives that you would get from the trendy brands. This was for me.
I was expecting more of a luxury feel after spending so much money on my new mattress. Is it ok? Sure. But, when you shell out this kind of money, you are hoping for amazing. That is not how I feel.
A wonderful luxury bed. I sleep like a regent every night.
A hefy investment, but well worth it in the end. I love this new bed and so does my husband. No complaints.
both my wife and I are not large people, we purchased a very expensive Hypnos mattress with a topper and within a month and a half it was already sagging. I rotated it every week for six weeks and then every two weeks thereafter to no avail. The mattress now has two half moon shapes on either side and a big ridge in the middle. Furniture Village sent someone round to evaluate it and they said it had not sagged enough for a refund! Do not waste your money on this mattress.
This is the worse mattress that we have ever slept in, we paid £3000 for just the mattress and it feels like it's been slept in for years and we have only had it one month. Hypnos and living homes where we bought the mattress have sent people out to test the mattress, they laid on it for 20 seconds and said there is nothing wrong with it, we are waking every morning with back aches. We were swayed by the Royal warrants and the write up by Hypnos that it's the 'best bed in the world' in our opinion it's the worse. They won't accept our feelings and basically said there is nothing they can do! But we could go to the Furniture ombudsmen! (Nice customer service)! Anyway good luck if you buy one.
Very comfortable mattress. Slept on it directly on floor for two nights over Christmas and slept very soundly both nights.
Backache gone! I love this mattress. Best one I've bought. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love this matteres, it provides great support while the pillow top makes you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. This matteres also seems to keep the body temperature in check so no sweaty or cold nights in bed - just heavenly!
Best sleep for years. Only 'downside' is the overall thickness. Some fitted bed linen may not fit, but non-fitted sheets, no problem.
Really comfortable mattress!! love it...could sleep all day :)
Bought this mattress from Nottingham Store a week ago and told that it would feel slightly firmer on our existing base. The mattress has dipped already taking our body shape and the buttons on the pillow top dig into your spine and hips. This is the most uncomfortable mattress we've ever slept on.
Amazing Quality mattress, great comfort, worth spending on it !
Upgraded to a Hypnos mattress. Don't regret the decision at all. Best night sleep ever. Mattress worth every penny!
We bought this bed after having slept on a Hypnos bed in a luxury hotel. The price reflects the fact that it is a quality product, made in Britain. The recommendation is for a pure cotton mattress protector, which costs about £35. It is a very comfortable mattress, though it quickly forms small hollows where you lie, which we hadn't expected. Also you need to regularly turn it round - not easy as you get older!
Bought this mattress after recommendation from a friend and after reading the comments from other customers and I must say that I was not disappointed at all. Really good quality mattress and extremely comfortable to sleep on.
It took a few nights to get used to these new mattresses but now we really like them. The inclusive fabric topper gives the fairly firm mattress a lovely cosy feel. My troublesome back also feels well supported and comfortable. I thought I would miss my feather topper but I don't - and really wouldn't exchange it for anything else!
My wife and I have never slept so well since we took delivery of this mattress - we are very happy with this purchase.
Found it firmer than it felt in store & was starting to have doubts, but glad to report its now nice & comfy. As always with a mattress, you must try before buying. Now very happy with purchase.
Very comfortable mattress and ease to turn with good sized strong handles
The choice of a new mattress is something which is very individual so it is difficult to recommend to someone else. However, this mattress is made of natural fibres, it is firm without being uncomfortable. We bought it to replace our old mattress and we had no difficulty in adjusting to this new one. The quality of the materials is very high and I thought the name Hypnos had a good reputation for quality and good value. We thought the price was reasonable for a mattress of this quality.
Really comfortable mattress and great quality. Extra topping makes a real difference.
After a disastrous purchase only four years ago, we just had to replace our mattress. My son and daughter in law had discovered the true comfort of the Hypnos superb pillow top and couldn't have recommended it more. We went on their advice and now I feel the need to tell them how pleased we are with ours at every opportunity!!! We are now working on the rest of the family!
This is supremely comfortable and supportive, with a soft top layer to take the edge off the firmness. I have lower back pain, and this mattress really does help - it adjusts nicely to the shape of one's body and is very accommodating when (as with us) two people of significantly different sizes and weights sleep on the same surface. Despite the intake of breath when I saw the price, it is definitely worth it - no need to spend even more: this is truly excellent.
It's ckearly a quality product - but I probably wouldn't choose it again. But firm for me at only 10 stone. The top quilt but also makes me too hot
After 6 weeks in hospital I was left with a sore lower back. The Hypnos matters enable me to have the 8 hours of sleep I was used to.
This is an amazing mattress that was instantly comfortable! Although it is technically a firm mattress, it does not feel firm because it is so cushioned.
The Hypnos mattress is superbly comfortable and well made and it helps to have a ten year guarantee.
Was suffering from back and neck pain so decided it was time for a new mattress and this has been perfect!
Excellent mattress and base with (optional) 4-drawer storage. We've never slept so well! Polite delivery guys set the whole thing up and took away the old bed. Service as it should be. I haven't regretted making this purchase for a second.
I bought the mattress, that cost a lot of money, having been assured that I would and could be assured of a good nights sleep, especially given that I had back problems. The pillow topping I was assured was the ultimate in comfort on top of the firm mattress. What a mistake, the 'buttons' used to secure the topping to the mattress are right on a line with your hip and lower back, so no matter whether you lay on your right or left side or on your back, these 'buttons' intrude and press on that part of your body, meaning you have constant pressure from the item and giving you/me discomfort. Because I had to be away from home for a while I have now missed the 'return' date.
We'd expected that the mattress would need time to settle, but from the very first night it was very comfy and supportive without being hard or lumpy. The comfort topper is just enough to relax in to. It's heavy to turn, but that isn't surprising.Have never (as yet after 5 months) woken up with a sore back, which is unheard of for me. Great quality at a reasonable price.
Mattress-firm, ultra supportive mattress. Pillow top gives a soft feel but may limit longevity however ten year guarantee gives peace of mind. Side stitching means no sagging at the ends. Quality product.
I purchased 2 of these for 2 new bedrooms. What an amazing mattress! The mattress is the best i have ever slept on and would recommend anyone to purchase one.
