Getting input from customers is a great way to shorten your list of potential mattresses to look at. These mattresses get high marks from customers, but some had disagreements. The below has more information on the mattress and a selection of reviews -- research on to make sure one of these works for you!
Most customers report feeling supported on these mattresses, but others had issues with feel over the long term. For those that are heavier, review the mattress specifications and firmnesses before making a final decision as you'll want to make sure that your body is perfectly aligned.
For those that like sitting on their mattress with their feet hanging off the side, most reviewers describe the mattresses as being supportive on the edges. That said, some have had complaints so make sure to review more.
Mattresses don't seem to provide lasting comfort as well as they once did. Finding a mattress that remains cozy after 15 years just isn't as easy anymore. However, finding a mattress that remains comfortable that long can save you thousands. Unfortunately, these mattresses get mixed reviews on durability. Many folks don't report any issues, but others have comfort problems over a shorter time frame than is usual.
Most sleepers gave these mattresses solid ratings and felt comfortable with their sleep. However, some sleepers didn't sleep as well. If one of these is one your list, make sure to read more below to make sure it will work for your body type.
Supportive mattresses help align the back properly and help keeping things comfortable for years. These mattresses do a good job providing support for most folks, but there are some rare complaints.
Edge support is a must-have attribute for great mattresses and for those that sleep close to the side of their mattress. These mattresses are well regarded for edge support, but some heavier folks may find there is a slight dip along the side.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Measuring mattress firmness with a bowling ball is a great way to undertand even support. These mattresses provide even support for most customers, but there are some that mention issues with even support long term.
Everyone wants a mattress that offers durability and will last forever, but that is sometimes easier said than done. Luckily, customers don't remain silent on what they like and dislike about their choices. These mattresses are durable and will should last longer than average for most sleepers, but some folks who have larger builds may find that they don't last as long.
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.
Bit on the heavy side, but a good solid/supportive feeling and no "real" complaints though towards the edge of the mattress the support doesn`t exist and it`s a slippery slope off!View More Reviews
Comfortable, memory foam topped, mattress with pocket springs. Makes a real difference to our sleep comfort compared to our 9 years old memory foam mattress. Not too firm but firm enough (for us) although noticeably less firm right at the edge of the mattress (which is where I like to sleep). I`ve learned to sleep a bit further towards the middle as a result of this - no real issue though. The wife suffers with a bad back and although this hasn`t cured it she says that she wakes up more refr
Well so much for the Which magazine `best buy`. If this is the best then I`ll forget the rest. The wife keeps rolling off the edge and it has made her back worse she said. You will need deeper sheets too so all my others have to be thrown out. The mattress before this I just took to the tip after it was replaced once due to faulty springs, it was still under guarantee but I couldn`t be bothered. Think I will try a Hypnos one next time as they seem quite comfy in Premier Inn! Service and delivery
Mattress replaced a 10 year old Tempur mattress. So far we certainly seem to be getting better quality sleep on the new mattress. Good service from Mattressman for both pricing and delivery.
comfortable, supportive mattress, not ordered mattress online before, but after doing a bit of homework decided to order this mattress, very pleased at price, service. Would recommend, thanks mattressman.
Plain and simple they provided the requested product and delivered quickly - team called and checked I was in. Quality product, good price, quick delivery- that`s what` it`s all about , great company and service well done mattress!
I love my new mattress, it’s so comfortable and I’ve been having the best nights sleep since it arrived. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
The mattress is extremely comfortable, we have only had it for a few weeks so must reserve judgement on its lifespan. The sales staff were very helpful with no "pushiness", there was a very comprehensive choice in the store and the mattress was delivered exactly when promised. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mattressman.
Very comfortable mattress with excellent price and service from Mattressman in Lowestoft. Cannot fault product or store.
This is the most comfortable mattress I have ever owned, getting into bed every night is an absolute pleasure.
My nights are now full of dreams... Thanks to my amazing mattress. Excellent service thankyou mattress man.
Lovely mattress, especially for the price. Good for my sons bad back. A good nights sleep
The only problem is the smell, it has taken longer to go than expected
Very good mattress
It is very comfortable I m very happy with this mattress
very comfortable and nagging back ache is going.
First saw this mattress online and visited the Rotherham branch to view it. It’s been over 6 months, the mattress has been lovely. Definitely firmer than any other mattress we have seen. Comfortable to sleep on. Can be turned and rotated. Mattressman delivered it upstairs and unpacked it. Removed old mattress for £20.
Outstanding super firm mattress, exactly as described, don`t forget to get the extra deep fitted sheets and it`s really heavy. Oh so comfortable.
Provides very good support for problem backs like mine.
Really fantastic mattress!
Very firm! Just like I like it!
This mattress is beautiful, very luxurious but very very firm. It weighs a tonne and is made of sturdy stuff. Sadly mine was delivered with some dirty marks on it so ask your product to be double wrapped and delivered by a van driver who doesn`t roll items off the van! Seriously.
This is the best mattress I`ve ever had. Most of the time when I ordered an extra firm mattress, they were always too soft for extra firm. Not this one, this is really firm and so comfortable to sleep on. If you like it very firm, I would recommend this mattress.
Comfortable, firm mattress. Good price and speedy efficient delivery. Appreciated regular text updates from the driver.
If you are thinking is it worth the money to buy a good mattress.... the answer is YES. I absolutely love this it is really comfortable and suitable for heavier people too. We also purchased a divan bed which I think suits it well although it can be used on slatted bases too.
This mattress is lovely and firm. Since sleeping on it I have had no issues with my back which my old mattress was starting to aggravate. Would highly recommend it.
Fantastic mattress, we looked around for a super firm mattress and this one is superb. Our back issues have subdued and it`s hard work making the effort to leave bed in the morning now!!
Best mattress I`ve had. Both firm and supportive. Great night`s sleep. BTW I weigh 18 stone so smaller people might want a less firm version.
Fantastic mattress, very firm but supportive as well. Well worth buying
Initially great, but does need to be flipped often if you sleep on the edge of the mattress or just in one particular spot
Very very firm and good quality mattress. Unfornutity, this mattress was too high for my small bedroom, had to return it. And the costumer service was good and quick money back. Thanks a lot
Really pleased with this mattress - extra firm and supportive
Excellent, speedy service. Helpful, peasant delivery men who arrived at the expected time. Sleeping well on a very comfortable mattress.!
Excellent bed delivered when they said it would
Excellent mattress and excellent service from Mattressman, we will be buying another one.
This is a top quality mattress which is very firm and heavy. (So remember this if your moving this upstairs alone.) The online ordering was easy and simple. Ordered on Friday night delivered at 10am on the Monday. Highly recommended!!
Superb mattress, very firm as expected, has certainly helped my bad back
