This pocket sprung mattress is designed with side, back and lightweight sleepers in mind. Medium-tense pocket springs and carefully selected natural materials promise to deliver a medium-soft sleeping surface designed to alleviate pressure and pain, minimise motion transfer and provide you with a blissful night of sleep.
As is often the case with a medium-soft mattress such as this one, we can use it in a variety of situations. Ideally, you'll want to resort to this mattress if you're sharing a bed with a restless sleeper whose movement disturbs you during the night. But, that's hardly all we can use this mattress for. Aside from that, we can:
Now that we know who can use this mattress and what they can use it, let's take a look at some of the features that make this mattress unique.
Generally speaking, a mattress that's close to 25 cm of depth is considered ideal. This one, sitting at 24 cm of depth easily falls into that category.
Seeing how this one is a medium-soft mattress, 24 cm of depth gives it more than enough room to gently and comfortably cradle your body without allowing you to sink in too deep. Also, seeing how this one comes without a removable cover, it is nice knowing that most fitted sheets and mattress protectors will fit it snuggly.
Plus, a mattress of this size will comfortably rest on any bed frame without being uncomfortably tall or short.
Most companies would just round up to 1400, but not Relyon. This medium-soft mattress comes with 1390 individually nested pocket springs that offer tailored support where you need it the most. These are full-sized, medium-tension pocket springs, specially designed to tailor to side and back sleepers, by providing them with adequate support and alignment to help promote a comfortable night's sleep.
As such, these springs won't be suitable for front sleepers, as they require additional firmness and support, especially around the pelvic and hip area, but for everyone else – these springs should be more than sufficient.
Instead of going with memory foam, this mattress finds its comfort in the marvellous blend of wool, silk and cashmere. All of these natural materials are super soft and smooth, adding to the overall softness and plushness of the mattress.
Not only that but these natural materials are also known for their natural hypoallergenic properties, as well as excellent temperature control – especially the wool.
Wool is the best natural insulator, which is why it is often used in mattresses. Wool will keep you cool during the summer, and warm during the winter, which is not something a lot of materials traditionally found in mattresses can do.
All in all, natural hair provides us with a durable insulating layer of natural resilience and a luxurious loft, as well as gives optimum support.
This mattress comes with a non-removable super smooth Damask cover. This finely woven and durable fabric is a common choice for pocket sprung mattresses. A Damask cover such as this one will be gentle on your skin and will last you a very long time. It is very soft and smooth to the touch, almost silk-like, and even though you might be tempted to sleep directly on top of it – we suggest you don't do that.
Damask is durable, and you won't be able to easily damage it. However, since the cover is not removable, we strongly urge you not to sleep directly on top of the cover no matter how appealing it might be.
Another name for this Damask fabric is Hydrofresh Microclimate Control fabric. Despite being a mouthful, this simply means that the cover fabric has been treated to wick away and absorb the moisture to allow you to sleep cool, dry and fresh all through the night, regardless of how it may be.
If you're worried about any harmful chemicals – don't be. The fabric isn't treated with anything that would harm your health, and to attest to that, this mattress has been certified and approved by the National Bed Federation.
The mattress is handcrafted in the UK, which means it supports UK's economy and helps reduce environmental impact by creating a lower carbon footprint. And, is it is often the case with handcrafted mattresses – this one is also traditionally hand-tufted. Hand-tufting the mattress helps prevent loose fillings and helps keep the mattress in excellent shape for a long time. In this case, the mattress is traditionally hand-tufted with wool tufts which will give out a sumptuous and supportive feel.
A double row of side-stitching completes the traditional look and further reinforces the mattress edge by providing a more robust mattress border compared to a standard mattress. Pocket sprung mattresses generally struggle with edge support, but not this one. The pocket springs inside of the Relyon Classic Natural Supreme are surrounded by thick foam borders for additional mattress edge support. The reflex foam used for the borders offers long-lasting support and responsiveness to prevent the edges from sagging over time.
This is a single-sided mattress, which means that you won't have to flip it over once every few months. Just rotating it from head to toe should do the trick. Unfortunately, there aren't any side handles to assist you with rotating the mattress, so you might want to ask someone to help you out if you decide to get a King size or a Super king size mattress. Overall, this is the only maintenance you would have to do apart from occasional spot cleaning or vacuuming. And, if you wrap this one up in a mattress protector – you'll have to do even less.
To ensure you end up with the best postural support for a long time, this mattress is covered by a 5-year warranty against manufacturing defects. Loosely translated, that means that if the mattress fails you ahead of time – you will be adequately reimbursed. However, the warranty does not apply if the mattress fails due to negligence. So, make sure you take good care of it.
In addition to the warranty, you will also get to enjoy the free delivery if you order this one. However, you might have to wait between 3-5 weeks for some of these, as they're often out of stock due to being in high demand.
If you'd like to enjoy the express delivery convenience, Saturday delivery, or even old mattress disposal – you can. You'll just have to pay a small fee.
Now it's time for the main event – the review of Relyon Classic Natural Supreme 1390. This mattress combines a pocket spring system with memory foam and natural fillings in order to create a perfect sleeping environment for side and back sleepers. The individual pocket springs follow the curvature of your body, providing you with essential and adequate postural support, while the memory foam layer, alongside 2 rows of side-stitching ensure a more robust mattress border and excellent edge support.
The spring density at King size is 463 per squared meter, which is more than enough to properly support your entire body.
As far as the natural fillings are concerned, we have silk and cashmere of the highest quality, combined with natural hair wool, tufted directly into the Damask cover. This traditional skill ensures all loose fillings are secured to provide the perfect finish to your mattress. These fillings gently contour to your body shape, as well as regulate body temperature and wick away moisture, whilst keeping the dust mites at bay, due to their natural hypoallergenic properties.
Due to medium spring tension, this mattress offers both excellent motion isolation and pressure relief, making it an excellent mattress for couples, as well as solo sleepers.
In addition to that, this roll-up mattress is single-sided, which means you don't have to flip it. It only requires regular rotation to stay in great shape.
On the other side of things, Classic Natural Supreme mattress lacks the necessary support to suit front and heavyweight sleepers – especially if used on slatted bases.
The only problem that comes to mind when we talk about the Relyon Classic Natural Supreme 1390 Pocket mattress is firmness, or rather softness. This is not a very soft mattress, but it is still too soft for most stomach sleepers as well as sleepers with higher BMI.
In general, there are two ways to solve this problem. The first way is to choose a more supportive bed base, while avoiding a slatted base that will not provide enough support for the mattress and thus you. Another way to make this mattress firmer and more supportive is to add a firm mattress topper. Heavyweight sleepers can consider both changing the bed base and buying a topper, although it is simpler to just choose a mattress more suitable for their sleep position and body frame.
This mattress, Relyon Classic Natural Supreme 1390, is one of the best pocket sprung mattresses on the market – and that's not just our expert opinion. Many bed specialists agree with us.
As you probably know, pocket springs and edge support don't really go hand in hand. Also, motion isolation – not their strongest suit. And, to top things off, pressure relief is something you'd usually find in a memory foam mattress, not a pocket sprung one.
Well, thanks to a deep layer of full-sized springs, natural fillings, and memory foam reinforcements – the Relyon Supreme mattress excels at every single one of those things, and that's not something we can say about its competition.
We always start our reviews the same way – by ordering the product. Fortunately for us, we were met with speedy delivery when we ordered our new mattress, only to later find out that you could possibly wait up to 5 weeks for the delivery day. Upon delivery, we inspected the packaging and the mattress for any signs of damage, and once we've concluded that there isn't any – we proceeded with our testing.
Whenever we do these tests, we strive to stay as objective as possible, which can only be done if we look at the product from different perspectives, and if we focus on all the important aspects of a mattress. That is why all of our team members spend ten days testing comfort, contouring, support, edge support, breathability, responsiveness, bounce, motion isolation, durability, and longevity of the mattress. To test all of these, we conduct various experiments and tests, including the trusted roller test, kettlebell test, and many others.
We hardly had any complaints about this mattress during testing, so overall impressions are very positive. Those impressions are not based on a subjective impression, but the entire test team agreed on the same things. Relyon Classic Natural Supreme 1390 Pocket mattress is so comfortable that you will hardly wait for bedtime to come.
If you suffer from pain or are side sleepers, the pressure relieving that this mattress will provide will completely transform your night's sleep and your mornings, which will suddenly be pain-free. You will no longer feel stiffness after waking up and that is certainly one of the main impressions. We couldn't help but notice the combination of the highest quality materials that make this mattress premium and hypoallergenic. You can rarely find a blend of wool, silk, and cashmere in one product.
Of course, it is not ideal for every type of sleeper, which is why our rating is between 8 and 9 on a scale of 1 to 10. But what do you think about the Relyon Classic Natural Supreme 1390 Pocket Mattress? Let us know in the comments!
In the end, let's wrap this up by answering some FAQs.
Yes. This is a perfect mattress for side sleepers.
Back sleepers will enjoy this one quite a lot. However, stomach sleepers will have to look for something a bit sturdier.
Unless you're a stomach sleeper, you should feel free to give this mattress a shot. It will probably help your back pain.
In order to clean this mattress, you'll have to either grab a damp cloth or a vacuum, because the cover is not removable.
