Everything you need to know before buying a pocket sprung mattress
Will this be your first time buying a pocket sprung mattress? You probably have hundreds of questions, just like the hundreds (and thousands) of springs you'll find in a pocket sprung mattress.

Thankfully, the sleep experts at Bedtime are here to help you understand everything you need to know before buying one of these fantastic mattresses.
Understanding just what a pocket sprung mattress does
Ask most people what a sprung mattress is, and you'll be surprised at how many different answers you might get back. Pocket sprung mattresses are a fantastic option for almost every type of sleeper, and it helps to have a clear understanding of what one is.
A pocket sprung mattress is a mattress where fabric pockets house each spring independently. They do this to allow the sleeper to have more control over comfort levels when sleeping; something that can come in handy for people sharing a double or king bed.
Getting to know why pocket numbers matter on a mattress
More springs in a mattress is always better, right? Pocket sprung mattresses tend to come in anywhere from 1000 to 3000 pockets. When you click on any product on this page, you'll see we list how many pockets the mattress has under Best Features. To understand what number might suit you, follow these guidelines:
- 1000 Pocket Springs – You want a mattress that leans on the softer side and provides some support
- 1500-2000 Pocket Springs – You want a mattress that provides good support, feels firm and settles when you're lying down for a while
- 2000-3000+ Pocket Springs – You want a mattress that is fully supportive and feels firm when you lie down

Knowing the differences between pocket sprung and memory foam mattress
Pocket sprung and memory foam are two of the most popular mattress styles in the country, and you don't want to find yourself getting in a tizzy wondering which type you need. While memory foam can adapt to the sleeper's shape much easier, there are some reasons why you might opt for pocket springs.
For example, if you like a nice cold mattress or move around a good bit throughout the night, pocket is the way to go. If you need a higher level of support or like a slight sink feeling when lying down, you might want to look at our range of memory foam mattresses.
Knowing the difference between pocket sprung and traditional mattresses
A spring is a spring, so what's the difference? As we mentioned above, pocket sprung means every spring is housed individually. That isn't the case with traditional spring mattresses, where every spring is part of one frame inside. Some people prefer traditional mattresses as they've incredibly versatile, resourceful, and typically a cheaper option.
We have a lot of customers who will go for this dependable option and get the likes of a mattress topper from our Bedding Accessories section to pop on and off as the seasons change.
