What Is A Pocket Sprung Mattress

Let’s start at the beginning and find out exactly what a pocket sprung mattress is. Basically, it is a mattress where every spring is in its own individual pocket of fabric. This means each spring can move independently of its neighbour allowing for a much more responsive feel that sinks in where you need it to giving you maximum support.

This is of course in comparison to an open spring mattress, that’s what old mattresses are made out of. Open spring is when all the springs are attached together on a big grid, this means they all sort of move as one, so you might jump into bed on one side and bounce your partner off the other side!

It’s What’s Inside That Counts

The mattress filling is the heart and soul, it is the most important factor and defines what kind of feel and comfort it has. Luckily there are only a couple of different fillings that come up here so let’s have a look at what they are.

Memory Foam

Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam is known for its support and comfort allowing you to sleep like your lying on a cloud. Memory foam itself is what’s known as a viscoelastic material, this just means it gets softer when it’s touched by something hot. So when you lie on a memory foam mattress it gets softer and moulds around your body. This keeps your spine aligned as it should be stopping morning aches and pains and letting you sleep comfortably.

The problems are they tend to be very hot unless they are split up into different layers that allow for airflow and proper cooling. Another problem is when you roll over you can tend to leave behind a big groove that takes some time to bounce back. So for people who move around a lot you can get woken up by lying on the bumps you made, it doesn’t take long for them to go away but it can be long enough to wake you up.

Even on a budget you can pick up a semi decent memory foam mattress, but the problems that memory foam has to tend to be quite prominent. So if you’re a hot sleeper who’s prone to night sweats then I’d recommend a spring or hybrid. But if you tend to wake up with a sore back then memory foam will be perfect for you.
