What is the difference between standard sprung and pocket sprung mattresses?
The key difference between a standard and pocket sprung mattress is the way the springs are put together. A standard sprung mattress, also known as an open coil mattress consists of an interconnected spring system. This means that the springs all move together as one and provide a degree of contouring support. Whereas the springs in a pocket sprung mattress are sewn into individual fabric pockets. This means that, unlike open coil springs, pocket springs move independently. Helping the mattress to follow and support the contours of the body no matter how you move.
Both styles of mattresses are great for different reasons. For instance, standard sprung mattresses tend to be more affordable. Allowing you to have comfort on a budget. They also tend to have more 'give' than a pocket sprung mattress so if you prefer a spongy mattress, open coil mattresses are perfect.
Pocket sprung mattresses are on the firmer side and will outlast a standard sprung mattress since the springs are more resistant. They're also ideal for couples sharing a bed. Since the springs move independently, you can move freely without worrying about disturbing the other person. Avoiding that 'roll-together' feeling.

How many springs are there in a pocket sprung mattress?
Typically, the number of springs in a pocket sprung mattress vary from 1000 - 3000 springs. The amount per mattress will depend on the brand and size of the mattress. For example, all spring counts are based on a king size mattress so the actual spring count of the same model will vary in a single or super king mattress. Although proportionately, the spring count remains the same. As a rule of thumb, anything less than 1000 springs is a low-quality mattress and anything above depends on your comfort preferences. The more springs in a pocket sprung mattress, the firmer the mattress will be.
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 nights sleep for some. Whereas pocket sprung mattresses have excellent airflow and do not retain heat in the same way that memory foam does.
If you suffer from back soreness and muscle aches, pocket sprung mattresses can sometimes be a bit too firm. Memory foam mattresses help to alleviate the pressure points of the body. This means you get the support you need where you need it as opposed to all over your spine which can sometimes worsen back problems.
Both mattresses are great for different reasons. It all comes down to personal preference and what will suit your sleep needs best. If you'd like to discuss further what mattress is best for you. Feel free to contact one of our sleep experts, they will be happy to help.
