So, what are medium super king mattresses?

This can be split into two different definitions; the term 'medium' relates to the mattresses firmness, whereas 'super king' refers to the size of the mattress. A super king mattress measures 6'0" wide and 6'6" long (180cm x 200cm).

Is this type of mattress suitable for me?

Assess the size of the mattress

A case could be made that we'd all opt for a super king mattress over any other size in an ideal world. However, the sheer size of a super king size mattress means it's not a feasible option for many bedrooms. Therefore, first and foremost, you must assess whether your room is large enough to occupy a super king size bed to accommodate a super king size mattress. It's also worth considering whether you'd like to prioritise less floor space but a larger mattress over a smaller mattress with greater space for furniture. Opting for a super king mattress comes down to your room's size and whether you require the additional space that accompanies a super king mattress. If this type of mattress is a viable choice for you, then you'll be guaranteed an incredibly spacious and comfortable bed destined to significantly improve the quality of your night's rest.

Assess the mattress tension

Your new mattress must be the result of a meticulously thought-out process. Here are a few things to consider regarding whether a medium mattress is right for you.

Sleeping position

Soft, medium and medium firm mattresses are designed with side sleepers in mind. The soft surface accompanying these mattresses provides fantastic cushioned hip and shoulder support. However, a front or back sleeper sleeping on a medium mattress risks improper spinal alignment as the mattress cannot sufficiently support the spine while sleeping in this position.

Body stature

Whilst soft, medium and medium firm mattresses can all accommodate side sleepers, your body stature could be the difference between which variation of mattress you choose. For those of a lighter stature, a soft or medium mattress is ideal; conversely, if you're of a heavier build, you may want to consider a medium firm mattress to ensure a restful night's sleep.

What types of super king size mattresses does our collection comprise?

Our range features varied mattress types, fillings and innovative features, ensuring we feature a sleeping solution for everyone. With our range, there is no such thing as the 'best super king mattress'; however, you're likely to find that some mattresses are more compatible for you than others. Whichever option you settle on, with Mattressman, you can be assured that your new super king mattress will offer fantastic support and comfort.

Fibre fillings

Otherwise known as synthetic fillings, fibre fillings are usually comprised of polyester and are ideally suited to allergy sufferers.

Natural fillings

In contrast to fibre fillings, natural fillings are deemed premium mattress inclusions. These types of filling consist of materials such as wool, cotton, cashmere and silk. The majority of our collection of natural mattresses feature wool and cotton. Cotton is recognised for its breathability and seamless ability to wick away moisture. At the same time, wool is renowned for its fantastic temperature-regulating properties allowing for a suitable sleeping temperature regardless of the season. Other fillings included within our natural mattresses comprise cashmere and silk, offering unparalleled support and comfort for a reinvigorated night's sleep.

Open coil super king mattresses

An open coil mattress features a continuous coil of wire wound into springs to form the mattresses core. Open coil mattresses are considered budget-friendly options; however, despite the cheaper price point, open coil mattresses evenly distribute weight and provide a comfortable and supportive sleeping surface.

Pocket-sprung super king mattresses

A mattress with pocket springs is a superb choice if you're actively seeking a sleeping solution that offers tailored support. This type of mattress features a series of springs, each enclosed within a fabric sleeve, that reacts independently to movements throughout the night. Mattresses with pocket springs offer targeted support and fantastic pressure relief. In addition, as pocket-sprung mattresses can distribute body weight evenly, they prevent 'roll together' from occurring, which happens when a poor standard mattress causes a dip in the middle.

Memory foam super king mattresses

Memory foam adapts to the body shape and offers body-moulding support for the duration of your night's sleep. Memory foam mattresses either consist of a support system such as pocket springs accentuating the support of the memory foam layer or solely foam options.

Gel foam super king mattresses

Gel foam is similar to memory foam; however, it is a better alternative for those who sleep hot. Gel foam mattresses feature a breathable layer of geltex, culminating in a temperature-regulating mattress.

Latex super king mattresses

Natural latex is derived from rubber trees and, regarding mattresses, functions similarly to memory foam and gel foam. However, the superb air-circulation properties of latex mattresses mean, in contrast to a memory foam mattress, you're less likely to sleep hot and have your night's rest dictated by your body temperature.

Hybrid super king mattresses

Most mattresses comprise a support and comfort layer, such as pocket springs and memory foam. However hybrid mattress will feature two support layers, such as two rows of pocket springs, in addition to a comfort layer.
