What sizes of mattresses do we stock?

Mattress sizes UK

We go above and beyond regarding mattress sizes here at Mattressman. We stock every standard UK mattress size, zip and link options and custom bespoke special sizes on request. Our standard sizes include small single (75 x 190cm), single (90 x 190cm), small double (120 x 190cm), double mattresses (135 x 190cm), king size mattresses (150 x 200cm), and super king size (180 x 200cm). Of all our mattress sizes, double beds are one of the most popular options. Our zip and link options are brilliant for a guest room and are available in king size (150 x 200cm/2x 75 x 200cm) or super king size (180 x 200cm/2x 90 x 200cm). Lastly, many of our options can be custom-made to suit your needs and specific mattress size, mainly our British Bed Company and JAY-BE mattress ranges.

What size mattress is best for me?

Settling on your new mattress should be the result of careful research and consideration. Mattress tension and composition are important factors; we discuss this in greater detail below, but what size you opt for is crucial. For instance, there is a considerable size difference between a single mattress and a super king bed. Whereas a single mattress may be ideal for those who sleep alone, you'll most likely need a double or king size mattress if you share a bed.

Small double and double mattress size comparisons

These mattresses feature similar dimensions, and therefore, it comes down to whether you'd prefer a larger sleeping surface over floor space or vice-versa. As alluded to above, it's important you take into consideration what size mattress is best suited for your bedroom. Whilst, in theory, a super king-size mattress may be appealing, it could be too large for your bedroom and restrict available space for furniture. By cross-referencing the size of your preferred mattress with your room's measurements, you're able to gauge a better understanding of what the best mattress is for you. A small double mattress is considered as a fantastic space-saving alternative to a double bed and could be the perfect fit for your bedroom.

What types of mattresses are available?

Sprung mattresses

Some of our most popular sleeping solutions are pocket sprung or traditional coil mattresses.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are fantastic because each spring moves independently of one other, providing tailored support that moves with the contours of your body as you sleep. Available in every support tension, pocket springs are known for being incredibly comfortable mattresses, providing unparalleled pressure relief and providing an incredible night's sleep. Moreover, pocket-sprung mattresses are fantastic options for anyone sharing a bed as they possess great motion isolation properties, meaning that any movement your partner makes throughout the night won't impact your side of the bed. With the perfect fusion of support and comfort, you can rely on our wonderful pocket sprung mattress range.

Open coil options

Open or traditional spring mattresses are some of the best orthopaedic mattresses in the market. They are comprised of a continuous coil wire, and the tension can be extremely rigid, making them the go-to orthopaedic mattress. Orthopaedic mattresses help to soothe and relieve minor aches and pains allowing for a comfortable and supportive night's sleep. Also, open coil mattresses have low production costs reflected in their price, making for some of the best cheaper beds available.

Memory foam mattresses

Aside from sprung mattresses, memory foam is undoubtedly a popular option. Memory foam is comprised of a material that has millions of tiny holes that seep out air when pressure is applied. This means the mattress surface completely conforms to your body shape throughout the night, providing brilliant pressure relief to joints and promoting healthy spine alignment. Because airflow stops when pressure is applied, memory foam is known for its heat retention properties. Tend to be a 'hot sleeper'? Avoid a memory foam mattress and opt for sprung options or a bed with temperature regulation qualities such as latex or Geltex. For an all-foam mattress, memory foam is often combined with reflex foam or high-density foam to ensure extra support is provided.

Natural mattresses

Natural latex mattresses have recently grown in popularity, mainly because they are one of the most durable sleeping solutions available. Latex mattresses are designed to last over 10 years without deteriorating and have a similar composition to memory foam but are much more breathable and temperature-regulating. The latex mattress type is slightly more bouncy than memory foam. Indeed, it makes for a range of quality mattresses that maintain longevity much more than any other mattress type.

Hybrid mattresses

If you're torn between a sprung, memory foam or natural mattress, consider a hybrid mattress instead. Merging a pocket sprung or traditional coil spring system with comfort layers like memory foam, latex or Geltex, they make for a fantastic range of combination mattresses. With a hybrid mattress, you can benefit from the super support from the spring unit and get a great night's sleep with the sumptuous comfort of foam or latex.

What mattress firmness is right for me?

Finding the ideal mattress firmness for you depends on your preferred sleeping position. For example, what adequately supports a side sleeper, may not support a preferred back sleeper. Take a look below to see what mattress tension would best suit you and how you sleep.

Soft mattress or medium support

Soft or medium mattress firmnesses are best designed for people who prefer to sleep on their side. This is because a soft mattress can cushion pressure points such as the shoulders, hips and joints. This will promote healthy spine alignment whilst your body rests in this sleeping position.

Medium firm tension

Undoubtedly the best mattress for side sleepers who interchange sleeping positions throughout the night, a medium firm mattress is able to accommodate any sleeping position. This is because you want a mattress surface to balance soft and firm to support you in whatever sleeping position you're in. A medium firm mattress can adequately promote healthy spine alignment for all positions.

Firmer or extra firm support

A firm mattress is likely the best option for anyone who prefers to sleep on their back or stomach. This is because the mattress surface is firm enough to promote healthy spine alignment whilst you rest in this position. However, it is worth noting that sleeping on your stomach will predominantly strain your lower back regardless of what mattress you sleep on. If you suffer from pain in your back or joints and are of a heavier stature, consider an extra firm mattress. This is because this tension can provide additional support to combat aches and pains, helping you feel more supported throughout the night and well-rested in the morning.

Mattress qualities explained

Our mattress range has a variety of qualities and properties that enhance the comfort and support of the sleeping solution. Read below for some of the best mattress technologies and add-ons that will give you the best night's sleep.

Rolled mattresses

For the most convenient mattress delivery process, consider a rolled mattress. Compressed, rolled up, sealed in vacuum packaging and placed in a box, these mattresses have significantly reduced their size for delivery. This is the perfect mattress for anyone with small spaces or awkward corners to manoeuvre when transporting it around their home. Move the rolled mattress to the bedroom you desire, remove it from the box, place it on the bed frame and remove it from the packaging. After 4 hours, the mattress will mostly return to its original size, but after 24 hours, it will be completely returned. Not only is a rolled mattress delivery super simple, but you also get free delivery when you shop with Mattressman.


Struggle to keep cool at night? Geltex is the sleeping material that has been engineered to combat this issue. Comprised of air-permeable elastic foam, Geltex makes for a breathable version of memory foam, also able to conform to the contours of your body whilst you sleep. Some of the best mattress brands that produce Geltex include Silentnight, Sealy and Sleepeezee, providing many years of good night's sleep.

Pillow top

All the mattresses that incorporate a pillow top are known for their sumptuous cloud-like comfort. Often paired with pocket sprung mattresses, the pillow top layer on top of the bed comprises natural or fibre fillings.


Almost across all types of mattresses, handles are incorporated into the design. This makes for the easy transport and maneuvering of beds, especially when regularly flipping or rotating your mattress to maintain its longevity and quality.


It's hard to find breathable mattresses that help keep you cool at night. Not with mattresses that have incorporated vents, though, designed to expel warm are and draw in cool air into your sleeping solution. Increasing airflow vents make for super-breathable types of mattresses that will give you a good night's sleep.


Have you ever wondered what the little button-like features are on the surfaces of mattresses? It's known as hand-tufting, a process with threads fillings and springs together, helping to ensure that the fillings don't bunch up throughout the lifetime of your mattress. Not only this, but it also helps maintain the tension of your sleeping solution for many years.

Mattress accessories

In order to construct your perfect sleep environment, we also feature wonderful accessories such as our mattress topper and protector range, allowing for enhanced mattress comfort and longevity. If it's premium comfort you're seeking, consider a memory foam mattress topper and drift off to a wonderful night's sleep.

Consider a divan option

If it's both a mattress and bed frame you're looking for, consider one of our divans. Divan beds allow you to construct the bed of your dreams and tailor it to your stylistic and practical needs. You can choose either a base-only option or opt for a bed and mattress. Choose from a wide range of styles and storage configurations and transform your bedroom. Similar to our ottoman bed frames, divans are handy for utilising the most out of your floor space; integrated storage solutions could be the difference between purchasing a double bed mattress instead of a single bed with a mattress.
