British Bed Company mattresses

Choosing a new mattress isn't simply a case of 'one-size-fits-all'. There are many factors and criteria to consider. Choosing a mattress can be daunting with a heavy emphasis placed on mattress firmness, body support, and healthy spinal alignment support. However, the British Bed Company, exclusive to Mattressman, provides a wide range of affordable mattresses tailored to your budget, requirements and preferences. For high-quality bedroom furniture at an affordable price, look no further than a British Bed Company mattress. Read below to gain an insight into the British Bed Company's extensive range of mattresses, the best mattress for yourself and the many benefits that accompany our mattresses.

What sizes of British Bed Company mattresses are there?

Here at Mattressman, we are determined to showcase our mattresses and provide the basis for a comfortable and restful night's sleep. With this in mind, our range of British Bed Company Mattresses is available in sizes varying from a small single to a super king zip and link. The small single mattresses measure 2'6" wide by 6'3" long, whereas a single mattress is 3'0" wide and 6'3" long. The small double mattresses are 4'0" wide by 6'3" long, with the double mattresses measuring 4'6" wide by 6'3" long. British Bed Company king size mattresses measure 5'0" wide by 6'6" long, in contrast to their super king size beds and super king zip and link mattresses that measure 6'0" wide by 6'6" long.

What is a super king zip and link mattress?

The super king zip and link mattress by the British Bed Company is a super king sized mattress that is capable of transforming into two single mattresses. Simply unzip down the middle to create two standard single beds, or zip them together for a super king size sleeping solution.

Bespoke Sizing

Determined to provide the best service possible to our customers, the British Bed Company offers a special size and custom mattress range whereby you can tailor your ideal mattress to the dimensions you require. Choose from various tensions, spring systems and fillings from the British Bed Company and their range of custom-sized mattresses.

What is the right mattress firmness for me?

To promote healthy spine alignment, reduce the risk of back pain and ensure a comfortable night's sleep, it's important that you choose a suitable mattress. Our range of British Bed Company mattresses includes a variety of different firmnesses. When considering a British Bed Company mattress and how firm you'd like your new mattress to be, you should consider your sleeping position, body stature and whether you're currently experiencing back pain.


A medium mattress is soft enough to cushion hips and shoulders and consequently promote healthy spine alignment and is therefore ideally suited for side sleepers.

Medium firm

Medium firm mattresses are best suited for those of a heavier stature who sleep on their side or those of a lighter stature who either sleep on their front or back.

Side sleepers on medium firm mattresses

A medium firm mattress provides the perfect balance between a mattress that is firm enough to accommodate a sleeper who is heavier in stature whilst remaining soft enough to cushion the hip and shoulder whilst sleeping on the side.

Front and back sleepers on medium firm mattresses

A mattress with a firmer tension is recommended when opting to sleep on your front or back to promote and encourage healthy spine alignment. Therefore if you are slight in size, a medium firm mattress is of adequate firmness to adequately support your back and spine.

Firmer tension

A mattress with firm tension is recommended for those who solely sleep on their front or back. A firm mattress evenly distributes body weight sufficiently, provides pressure relief to pressure points, and provides more support to keep your spine aligned in a healthy position whilst sleeping.

Extra Firm tension

Extra firm mattresses are sometimes referred to as orthopaedic mattresses and are designed and manufactured to alleviate existing back pain, neck problems or pain in joints or hips. Extra firm mattresses proactively combat these discomforts. As with a firm mattress, extra firm mattresses are suitable for front and back sleepers.

What are the different types of British Bed Company mattresses?


As mentioned above, orthopaedic mattresses are designed with those who suffer from back pain and other musculoskeletal issues in mind.

Open coil mattresses

Mattresses with open coil spring systems, designed with steel coils, wound into hundreds of springs and connected by a wire rod edge.

The inexpensive manufacturing costs of open coil mattresses are reflected in the price of the mattress and are considered an affordable alternative to a pocket sprung mattress. Despite the open coil spring tensions epitomising affordable mattresses, the quality and durability of an open coil mattress are uncompromised. The open-coil spring system enables your body weight to be evenly distributed across the mattress, ensuring a comfortable and reassuringly even feel. For an affordable mattress that's comfortable and durable in equal measure, look no further than an open coil mattress from the British Bed Company.

Pocket Sprung mattresses

A pocket sprung mattress incorporates a pocket spring system to provide tailored body support. The pocket springs are enclosed in sleeves and work independently from one another to respond to pressure applied to the different areas of the mattress. A pocket sprung mattress is a luxurious and comfortable option at an affordable cost. Pocket springs are particularly beneficial for those who share a bed; due to the independent movements of the pocket springs and motion isolation, you won't be able to feel the other person's actions throughout the night. Our range of British Bed Company mattresses with pocket springs ensures a luxurious sleeping surface and durable mattress at an affordable cost.

Memory foam mattresses

Memory foam works in tandem with your body heat to soften and mould to your shape, consequently providing remarkable support and comfort.

Mattresses with fibre fillings

A mattress manufactured from synthetic, polyester fibre fillings is an excellent choice for anyone affected by hayfever or dust mite allergies, as the synthetic fillings are allergen-resistant.

Mattresses with natural fillings

A mattress with natural fillings has become increasingly popular in recent years as natural fillings help enhance the comfort and quality of your sleep.

Natural cotton

Cotton encompasses softness and comfort and is renowned for its ability to regulate body temperature and absorb the heat from your body throughout the night, allowing you to stay cool. A mattress with natural cotton fillings blurs the lines between premium levels of comfort and affordability.

Wool and cashmere

Regarding mattress fillings, natural materials such as wool and cashmere are renowned for their luxury, elegance and uncompromising comfort. Furthermore, cashmere is a highly breathable and resilient fibre, and it, therefore, works incredibly effectively as an insulator.

Across the country, people describe themselves as 'hot sleepers' and often struggle to sleep in warm temperatures; if this applies to you, a British Bed Company mattress with a natural filling may be the ideal purchase.

One-sided mattress and double-sided mattress


It's common knowledge that most mattresses require rotating and flipping to increase their lifespan. However, a one-sided mattress is designed with the sleeping surface on one side of the mattress and is manufactured to be durable and longer lasting. In addition, one-sided mattresses are considered a lower maintenance option than double-sided mattresses as they require less attention.


By utilising both sleeping surfaces, the lifespan of a double-sided mattress can improve. It's recommended that you flip double-sided mattresses every three months to avoid body impressions on one particular side of the mattress. The majority of our double-sided mattresses feature handles for ease of rotation.
