Before making a decision to purchase a mattress, you must carefully weigh up all your options, considering things like your height, weight, lifestyle, and sleeping environment. 

Using this mattress size guide, you can ensure you get the right mattress and size for you right from the start.

It’s probably no surprise that the firmness and softness of your mattress can influence your sleep, but were you also aware that the size of your mattress can also have an impact?

Insomnia, back problems, and a lot of tossing and turning can be caused by sleeping on a mattress that’s too small, large, thin, and thick for your body type.

When buying a mattress, the first decision is the size. You must also consider your height, weight, whether you will share a bedroom with someone, how restless you are as a sleeper, and the size and shape of your room when choosing the size of your mattress. You can find detailed advice in our mattress and bed size guide.

At Discounted Beds, our mattresses are available in all UK standard sizes.

What are the different types of mattresses?

In general, mattress types refer to the type of filling a mattress has, and there are several types available. Our guide compares the different types of mattresses based on their price, comfort levels, and benefits.

Open Coil mattress

The traditional spring mattress, also called an open spring mattress, consists of metal springs inserted throughout the mattress to provide both comfort and support. These mattresses offer excellent value for money, come in a range of sizes, and come with a varying comfort level, so no matter what your needs may be, you can find the perfect mattress for you. 

Comfort range : Medium - Firm 

Ideal forBack Sleepers, people on budget

Pocket Sprung Mattresses

Traditional spring mattresses have springs arranged in a typical ‘pocket’, however pocket spring mattresses have the springs wrapped in individual pockets. The springs can independently move, allowing you to sleep without the worry of feeling your partner tossing and turning in the night.

Comfort rangeSoft - Very Firm

Ideal for: Back & front sleepers, couples

Memory Foam Mattress

By cleverly conforming to the contours of your body, memory foam mattresses provide the ultimate in comfort. People suffering from back pain should consider this technology as it will keep the spine aligned and relieve pressure.

Gel Top Mattress


Gel mattresses are made of ActiGel foam with an open cell structure which allows for maximum airflow. Besides cushioning your pressure points, this gel also helps regulate your body temperature, making it ideal for those of us who are frequently hot at night.

Latex Mattress

In latex mattresses, latex is usually layered on top of springs so that a comfortable sleeping surface can be achieved. The mattress will distribute pressure evenly and help relieve pressure points; this may prevent back pain. The hypoallergenic features of these mattresses make them ideal for allergy sufferers, as well as those suffering from respiratory problems, such as asthma.

Natural Mattresses

The material found in nature is used in making a natural mattress, such as cotton, wool, mohair, or bamboo. There are several advantages to using natural materials instead of synthetic ones, including reduced environmental impact, longer mattress lifespans, and a cooler night's sleep.
