Help & Buying Guides

A pocket sprung mattress is made up of individual springs enclosed within their own pockets of fabric. Different from a traditional or open-coil mattress where springs are linked together, the independent movement of a pocket spring means the mattress can follow and support the contours of your body no matter how you move.

To find out more, take a look at our pocket sprung mattress buying guide.

Are pocket sprung mattresses any good?

One of the main benefits of a pocket sprung mattress is the extra support it provides. As the springs work independently of each other, they can support and distribute your body weight much more effectively than an open-coil mattress, reducing the risk of aches, pains and pressure on your joints building up. By responding to the contours of your body shape, pocket springs modify their support regardless of how you might move during the night, allowing for a comfortable night’s sleep.

A king size pocket spring mattress may be an ideal choice if you’re sharing a bed with your partner. As the springs move independently, you can move freely without having to worry about disturbing the other person. This also prevents you and your partner from rolling together during the night, lessening the chance of being disturbed while you sleep.

How many springs is best?

The simple answer is, the more the better! An entry-level mattress will have between 800 to 1,000 individually pocketed springs. While this provides a great night’s sleep and plenty of support, the greater the number of springs, the more diffused any movement becomes. That cuts down on the transference of those little movements during the night. So if your partner is a ‘wriggler’, a higher number of pocket springs in the centre of your mattress will make sure you’re not disturbed by their movement.

Mid-range 2000 pocket-sprung mattresses are so-called because they have around 1,400 - 2,000 pocketed springs, while more complex designs will have between 2,000 – 3,000 pocketed springs of various sizes and in different designs. Some may even have an additional layer as part of a mattress topper.

Is a firm pocket sprung mattress right for me?

Our pocket sprung mattresses are available in all firmness ratings. Each type has its advantages, however, which firmness level is right for you depends on several factors, such as sleeping position and personal preference:

Soft and soft-to-medium pocket spring mattresses are ideal for those who like their mattresses with a little more cushioning. These may be the better choice for side sleepers. By allowing your shoulder and hip to sink deeper into the mattress, a soft mattress can keep your spine aligned while you sleep.

An extra firm or firm pocket spring mattress may be an ideal choice for those who like more support than cushioning. The highest options on the firmness scale available, the lumbar support provided by these types of mattresses may suit those who prefer to sleep on their back or stomach.

If you like the sound of both of these, a medium or medium to firm pocket spring mattress may be the best choice. Combining the cushioning of a soft with the increased support of a firm mattress type, they can be an appropriate choice no matter what your preferred sleeping position.

Should I go for a pocket sprung or memory foam mattress?

Ultimately, it all comes down to your comfort preferences. But there are a few things to factor in when deciding which one to go for. Memory foam mattresses tend to be softer in feel and provide more of a 'sinking' feeling. Whereas pocket sprung mattresses are generally more supportive and have an overall bouncier feeling. Both mattresses are very supportive and perfect for couples since they have little movement, meaning you avoid that 'roll-together' feeling.

Temperature is another thing to factor in when deciding between the two. If you tend to get hot throughout the night, memory foam might not be the best option for you. Memory foam absorbs heat and retains it, which can lead to an uncomfortable night's sleep for some. Whereas pocket sprung mattresses have excellent airflow and do not retain heat in the same way that memory foam does. Some pocket sprung mattresses have a memory foam upper layer. The pocket sprung memory foam mattress is ideal if you cannot decide between the advantages of each type.

Both mattress types are great for different reasons, so it all comes down to personal preference and what will suit your sleep needs best.

Is a pocket sprung mattress good for back pain?

A pocket sprung mattress is often recommended for people who suffer from back pain. This type of mattress offers more support than an open coil mattress, where the movement of the coils is interconnected. An open coil mattress is cheaper, but you are more likely to be affected by the movements of your partner and to experience the feeling of rolling towards each other. The need to compensate for the inclination to roll together can itself be a factor in causing back problems.

If you like the combination of a firm mattress with a softer top layer, a pillow-top pocket sprung mattress could be just what you need. This type of mattress gives you the support you need with the added comfort of a soft layer on top – often an ideal solution for those with back problems. Another factor to consider is the gauge or thickness of the springs. Thicker springs generally result in a firmer mattress. If you suffer from back pain and find a firmer mattress that helps to alleviate it, look for a mattress with a high spring gauge.

A handmade pocket sprung mattress will give you a superior quality sleep experience. But no matter what type of mattress you choose - pocket sprung, open coil mattress or memory foam, it is important to remember to replace your mattress at least every eight years. That way, you can be sure you are giving your back the comfort and support it deserves. Treat your back to a new pocket sprung mattress today.
