Is this mattress type suitable for me?

When considering a new mattress, it's crucial to consider the size and tension. Your bedroom's available space will likely influence the size mattress you opt for, whereas your sleeping position and requirements go a long way to determining the right mattress tension for you.

A small double mattress

A small double mattress, commonly referred to as a queen size mattress, is a popular choice for those who sleep alone but would prefer greater space than a single mattress offers and as an alternative to a double mattress for smaller bedrooms. A small double mattress is perfect if you're actively looking to save space. A small double bed frame and mattress is also a fantastic option for guest rooms as there's often less emphasis on the bed's size. To assess whether a small double, double or king size mattress is suitable for your bedroom, look at the specifications of your preferred mattress and consider measuring your bedroom to gauge your available space.

A medium tension

Your sleeping position will be the biggest factor in determining which mattress tension is best for you. Medium mattresses are designed with side sleepers in mind, as the soft mattress surface can sufficiently cushion the hip and shoulder whilst sleeping in this position. Consider a medium firm mattress if you're of a larger stature or you like to interchange between side sleeping and front and back sleeping. Finally, firm and extra firm mattresses are ideally suited to front and back sleepers, with the firm mattress surface able to adequately distribute body weight and promote healthy spinal alignment.

What types does our collection of medium small double mattresses comprise?

Open coil

If you're looking for a budget-friendly option, our open coil mattresses are perfect. The relatively inexpensive manufacturing costs of open coil mattresses are reflected in their price. These mattresses consist of rigid and strong steel coils forming interconnected springs. Despite a cheaper price point, open coil mattresses provide an even and supportive sleeping surface.

Pocket sprung

Pocket sprung mattresses provide additional support and comfort compared to traditional open coil mattresses. This mattress type features springs individually enclosed within fabric sleeves that react independently to pressure applied to the mattress to provide targeted support. The other benefits of pocket springs are that they allow for even weight distribution preventing a dip from emerging in the mattresses middle. Pocket springs are also renowned for their 'motion isolation' properties, ideal for anyone sharing a bed, as any movements your partner makes throughout the night won't impact your sleep.

Memory foam

Memory foam mattresses adapt to your body shape and provide cushioned support wherever pressure is applied to the mattress. Memory foam mattresses provide a 'sink in feeling' and sumptuous comfort throughout the night.

Gel foam

Memory foam options are often unsuitable for those who sleep hot; memory foam retains body heat, causing some sleepers to overheat. However, gel foam mattresses feature a gel-infused layer that helps regulate temperature while providing the same standard of body moulding support that you'd expect from a memory foam mattress. Wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead with any of our gel foam options.


Latex is another memory foam alternative for hot sleepers and an excellent option for anyone searching for a breathable mattress. Latex mattresses are formed using sap derived from rubber trees and are recognised for their brilliant elasticity and breathability. Aside from temperature regulation, the most notable difference between latex and memory foam is that a latex mattress will revert to its original shape quicker than memory foam.

Natural fillings

A mattress will often either feature synthetic fillings or natural fillings. Natural mattresses are considered premium options, with our collection including mattresses featuring either wool, cotton, cashmere, silk or a combination of these. Cotton and wool, in particular, are recognised for their temperature-regulating properties, whilst any mattress featuring natural fillings is likely to provide unparalleled comfort.
