Best Memory Foam Mattress in the UK

If you’re interested in some facts, memory foam actually works through your body heat. When you lay down on the foam, as it absorbs your heat, the memory foam will contour to your shape, giving you a perfect imprint. It’s almost as if the cellular structure itself is flexing to allow the contour. This is great for shaping the top of the mattress for your individual shape, but since the memory foam absorbs all that heat, if it has nowhere to go, it becomes a hot-bed. Literally. If you warm up at night, you may want to try a hybrid memory foam, don’t worry, there’s a guide for those too.

Density

How dense is too dense? That depends on how firm you want your mattress! The higher the density the higher the firmness. If you want a really firm bed, make sure your memory foam is dense.

Thickness

If you get tall memory foam, you’ll dip more and it may cause a gap to form over time (especially if you don’t provide plenty of time for the foam to expand). With that much foam it can be harder for the material to dissipate the heat and return to its normal form. If you’ve had a hot summer night, you may want to leave the blankets off for the memory foam to have time to expand again before that next night. This will actually help release the heat, instead of trapping it under the covers, making your memory foam last longer. More tips for your memory foam are listed below!

Spring Types

Memory foam mattresses aren’t always foam all the way through, some mattresses do use a spring system to provide support. Usually a mattress has one of two spring types: cage spring or pocket spring. Cage spring is a typical cheaper choice, there are layers of interlaced springs coils to form the mattress. Typically, these springs can be uncomfortable after some usage. With cage springs, the whole bed will see a dip where weight is applied. However, most of your quality mattresses have already ditched the idea of using cage springs because of the lack of luxury. While on the other hand, pocket springs are individually wrapped springs, with the material encasing them altering the quality of the mattress. However, pocket springs are usual a sign that you’re getting a quality mattress, regardless of what material they come wrapped in. Simply having each individual spring encased means extra time and effort was put into the manufacturing of the mattress.

Overall though, pocket springs keep only the places where weight is applied decompressed, instead of the whole bed. This means pocket springs are a great choice for couples who may have a fidgety partner. The tossing and turning will hardly be noticeable on the other side of the bed.

Did you know?

Bed bases matter. Platform or sprung edge is ideal for foam or spring mattresses. Slatted bases usually have large gaps that can cause a foam mattress to sink down or dip unnaturally. If you have a foam mattress you want to preserve you could try putting a sturdy board over the slats to act as a flat base.  While this is an easy way to solve the slat issue, you have to be careful, you want a strong sturdy board so it doesn’t snap in the middle of the night.
Rotating your mattress regularly can help keep it as comfortable as possible. Since memory foam mattresses aren’t typically made with memory foam on both sides, they can’t be flipped. Rotating them, however, allows for more even wear.

While a lot of mattress may come with a plush cover, quilted, damask, or even removable, you may want to invest in a mattress cover to extend the life of your bed. Spills and other accidents are much more easily rectified with a cover that can be unzipped and thrown into the washer. It provides more material between the spill and the mattress so your accident doesn’t seep in right away. Below, find a selection of best memory foam mattress reviews in the UK:

Pure Relief Memory Foam Mattress for Extra Support

Premium Comfort Double Electric Blanket

The Pure Relief Memory Foam Mattress is actually a dual combination of foam. First there is a 13 cm Memory Foam layer that will easily conform to your shape. Then below it there is another 19cm foam base, the reflex foam layers used for the base offer support for any body shape. Meaning this affordable memory foam based mattress will provide great support to the spine and back thanks to the dual foam layers. But don’t worry about it being too soft, this double foam structure actually has a medium firm tension.

Since there are no springs used in the manufacturing of this bed, you won’t have to worry about those pesky coils breaking over time. Foam does tend to flatten out or lower over time, but keen maintenance can keep it comfortable for years to come. You’ll even be able to get it in four different sizes, so you can get whichever fits your needs without breaking the bank.

The Pure Relief Memory Foam Mattress has a hand stitched, quilted luxury cover to compliment the foam. This quilted cover provides air circulation while sleeping, but can also help keep you warm in the winter, though it may be a little warm in the summer months if you’re already a hot-bodied sleeper.
Fortunately, this bed is made in the UK, and rises to all safety standards required. So, you can sleep easy knowing you’re getting a quality mattress.
Delivery on this model is actually pretty easy, despite being available in a king size, or a super king if that’s what you want, it’s delivered right to your door shrink wrapped and rolled. All you have to do is be careful when you’re opening the plastic. It may burst open sooner than you expect. The mattress will self-inflate so just mosey the rolled mattress over to the base and open it up – adjust it as necessary then let it do all the work! Expansion usually takes about an hour, but it is advised to let the mattress sit for longer than that before use.

Conclusively, this mattress is the cheap memory foam mattress on this list, but don’t let that description fool you, you will easily get many years of restful sleep with this purchase. Even as a single mattress with memory foam you’ll find it has enough room and support to keep you satisfied.

If you have a lot of aches and pains the memory foam offers head to toe support. It’s made to relieve pressure and Improve blood circulation. The supportive foam is made at a medium-firm tension.

The Starlight Beds Luxury Double Memory Foam Mattress is even on sale right now (at the time of writing this review), so you can pick this well rated bed for fraction of the regular price. It’s almost as cheap as the first mattress.
Shipping and lugging this bed around is easy thanks to it being delivered vacuumed sealed.  It is rolled and boxed for breezy maneuvering. It will fully inflate after about 30 minutes, but as is the usual advice, let it sit for a few more hours.
