    Mattress comparison: Casper, Hyde and Sleep, Leesa, Ergoflex, Eve, Simba 17th Jan 18 at 6:25 PM

    I am about to buy a new mattress and i wold like to have a bit of feedback on which one would you recommend.

    I am clear i want a memory foam mattress, medium-firm (the firmest the better), and both Casper, Hyde and Sleep, Eve, Leesa, Simba and Ergoflex look very good for me

    Has anybody used any of those? Which one would you suggest?

    Can't comment on any of the named ones but have had a Tempur for the last few years and would never buy anything else.

    I think someone started up a post/question on this a few months ago on the health and beauty board, and another on the shop but ..etc board, not a lot of people responded, I don't think many people have tried more than one, or any at all. I think tbh it's an individual thing, the only thing which is too early to tell is how well they last. That is going to be untested because none are old enough but as no one over the few years that have existed has said anything to the contrary, it's perhaps a good sign?

    I bought from John Ryan about a year ago and very pleased with the quality. Their website is extremely informative and well worth a look even if you don't buy from them. You can also ring and speak to them for advice.

    It's strange how all these mattresses have suddenly appeared that all:
    • Have quirky names
    • Are primarily sold direct with a long trial period
    • Are heavily advertised on social media

    Are they all made by the same company or something? If not I wonder why they have all appeared at the same time.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning

    Usually girls names too! Lol! Apparently there is a huge mark up in mattresses generally as they are very easy to make nowadays (stems back to when they were difficult to make and cost never dropped). Big market with lots of money to be made hence the current influx of new mattresses on the market. Not a bad thing as great competition and we’re all getting better nights sleep! Lol!

    I read that one of them is made in a factory in Derbyshire, near Derby, another one i made at a factory in Castle Donington, near Derby (but in Leicestershire).

    Hypnos beds have a factory in Castle Donington. Are they involved in any of these start-ups?

    Are they made at the same place or just that Long Eaton and the surrounding area is a major upholstery manufacturing centre?

    I’m in the market for mattresses too. Top of the list currently is IKEA own brand, was looking and testing their range in-store at the weekend. Even the basic Hovag looked good quality and you can see a cut-through display of the products.

    We purchased a new memory foam mattress from Otty a couple of months ago. I looked at all the others and it came down to Eve or Otty as I was keen to trial it. We decided on Otty which is made in China whereas Eve is made in Uk. This was because delivery was far quicker and we got 2 free memory foam pillows. My husband and I are both really happy with our purchase finding it medium firm and not too hot. Just hope it lasts but for now we are sleeping better. Good luck on your hunt as it is mind boggling going through all the hype!

    you probably aren't allowed to share your £50 voucher codes on MSE as they are essentially affiliate sales where you benefit if the person uses it if I recall correctly

    The best time to buy one of these mattresses is Black Friday in Nov. As a comparison, we were looking at a King-size Simba which I believe is £699 on their site. Argos eBay did them brand new on Black Friday for £530 - you cant use the 100 day guarantee though but my suggestion would be to buy it to try for the 100 days then by on black friday.

    Think the reason a lot of these companies have sprung up is they're fairly easy to launch and have fairly similar characteristics i.e a mattress in a box, so lot of companies are getting in on the action to compete for market share.

    We bought a Simba King Size at the end of last year and love it. OH had back pain a lot beforehand, thought it was our sofa or the way he sat at work - turns out it was our previous mattress.

    We tried it out in JL (along with all the others they had there) and immediately thought 'yes that's the one' The 100 night free trial also gives peace of mind if you decide you don't like it.

    They also removed our old mattress for free.

    If you search under codes / vouchers I think there are some Simba codes there for £50 off.

    (ashe wish I'd seen the eBay deal as we bought ours around BF time)

    Personally I didn't like the Tempur as I fell like I'm sinking into it - though I believe there are different firmness ratings so perhaps that was a soft one, but I tried them when they first came out and felt the same - like it was going to suck me in.

    We have two Leesa mattresses, purchased around a year ago, and we love them. We paired them with a fairly cheap IKEA bed-frame. Decided to save on the frame and spend on the mattress. We don't regret it.
