How to choose the right mattress firmness for you

Struggling to decide on a mattress tension? It’s an important decision. Your mattress tension = the firmness of your mattress.

To help you out we’ve called on our sleep experts to guide you through our firmness chart, natural fibre vs. pocket sprung, and some of their top tips for selecting your mattress.

  • Natural Fibre

    - A firmer and denser feel compared to sprung

    - Tension dictated by layering of materials

    Shop Natural Fibre Mattresses
  • Pocket Sprung

    - A more traditional, springy feel mattress

    - Available in soft, medium and firm tension

    Shop Pocket Sprung Mattresses

Sleep Expert Tip.

If you are planning on switching from a pocket sprung mattress to one of our Natural Fibre range, please consider that they are firmer and less bouncy than a traditional spring core mattress.

No less comfortable of course, but a different feel. Always best to try in one of our showrooms if possible, or call us to discuss your choice.


Mattress firmness chart

The chart below is designed to help you find the mattress firmness to suit your taste. It begins at our softest mattress, the Splendid Pocket Sprung with a soft tension spring unit, and ends at our Mohair Natural Fibre, our firmest mattress.
