Choosing your 2ft 6” mattress
While these mattresses all share the same size, there differ by filling and comfort grade. For example, we have pocket spring, traditional spring, latex, and memory foam options available. Factors such as your body type, the way you sleep, and whether you prefer a harder or softer sleeping surface all comes into play when choosing your mattress. Popular mattress types include:
- Standard sprung small single mattress: This classic type of mattress uses open springs to ensure weight is supported while maintaining comfort.
- Pocket sprung small single mattress: Similar to standard sprung, this type of mattress contains springs, however, these are individually wrapped to offer further support.
- Small single memory foam mattress: This is one of the most popular mattress types and uses foam to mould around the contours of your body. These mattresses are recommended to those who suffer from back pain.
- Reflex foam small single mattress: This material is highly responsive and offers a supportive and firm surface.
- Small single mattresses with natural fillings: Finally, these mattresses contain natural materials such as cotton, wool and cashmere. These are ideal if you have a child who suffers from allergies.

Which is the best small single mattress?
A small single mattress is ideal for a single bed that’s used in a child’s bedroom. Small mattresses are defined as those that measure 2ft 6”. Mattresses larger than this fall into the ‘single’ category. Small single mattresses are a great way to introduce a child that has outgrown their cot into the adult world of their very first 'big' bed. They might be small, but there’s no compromise on comfort or support from a 2’6 mattress. In fact, they’re no different from their larger cousins and you’ll find that the same amount of care and attention goes into single small mattresses from all the big-name brands. We love the Kayflex Windsor memory mattress for its exceptional support and lightweight construction. For young children who may find it difficult to regulate their body temperature at night, a Coolflex I-Pedic Memory Cool mattress with their patented CoolMax® cover is a great option. All of our small mattresses come with free next-day delivery, saving you even more money.
