How did we test the product?
As you probably already know, it can be a pretty tedious task to find the perfect mattress. There are so many different options out there, that the average consumer is pretty much overwhelmed with various possibilities and it would be ludicrous to expect anyone to easily find the right mattress for themselves right away. Luckily, that’s why we are here!
We start all of our reviews the same way. We begin by testing the mattress and during the testing process, we try and pay close attention to every single detail, no matter how minor or insignificant it may seem. Also, we focus on the key, defining features more than anything else, because after all, they are called defining features for a reason. Given the fact that all of this is a fairly subjective process, we try to be as objective as possible and look at things from a different perspective. We try to outline the pros and cons and assess the features like firmness, support, edge support, pressure and pain relief, weight distribution, motion isolation, breathability, hypoallergenic properties, durability, longevity, warranty and more.
As we’ve said, we like to keep our review objective and the only way to do so is by having a diverse, testing and reviewing team and we do. All of our team members differ in body weight, sleeping position, age and gender and that’s exactly what allows us to offer a unique, broad perspective of every product we review, including the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress.
What do we use this product for?
Just like any other mattress, we use the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress to sleep on it. However, the added level of firmness this mattress brings to the table offers additional orthopaedic properties, especially useful to those in need of proper support and alignment. Just so we’re clear, we’re not talking about pain and pressure relief, just proper, full-body support.
Is Happy Beds Signature 3000 an upgraded version of a previous product
Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress the top-tier option in the Happy Beds’ Signature line of pocket sprung mattresses. Compared to the other models in the series, Signature 3000 Crystal comes with the most individual springs, which makes this one the best, as well as the firmest, out of the line-up of 5.
Features you should know about the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress
Just like every other mattress, the Signature 3000 has its own set of defining features. As you could probably guess, for a pocket sprung mattress it’s the quality of individual springs and the outer comfort layers, including the mattress cover. Here are a few words on some of them.
Happy Beds’ is known for using the finest materials in the production of their mattresses. With Signature 3000 Crystal in question, we have a mixture of various high-quality, natural materials such as horse hair, lamb wool, natural mohair and more.
All of these when combined, add up to one of the finest materials on the market, offering you the utmost comfort and cosiness. We’ve paid special attention to this feature and we have to say the impressions are great, to say the least. You can really tell the difference between all-natural materials and synthetic fibres used in some other products.
As you know, it is very important for a mattress to be breathable and temperature regulating. The last thing you’d want is to sweat and be uncomfortable because your mattress traps all the heat. Fortunately, the pocket sprung mattresses are known, in general, as good at this. Well, this one takes it a step further with a moisture-absorbent cotton cover.
Cotton is well-known for its moisture-absorbing properties, but when it is paired with the rest of the natural materials in this mattress, you end up with a great cover, that is guaranteed to keep you cool and comfortable all night long. Furthermore, this will keep the mattress dry and fresh for a longer period of time.
Easily the main and the most important feature of Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress is the pocket sprung system that is nestled between the layers of soft, natural materials. 3000 individual coils are what make this mattress the best in the Signature series.
The pocket springs allow for impeccable support, great motion isolation and of course, a great level of comfort as they wrap around your body perfectly. Furthermore, 3000 individual springs are just about as high as you should go when it comes to pocket sprung mattresses. Above that and it’s only for the show. All in all, this is a great pocket spring system.
A handmade mattress wouldn’t be complete without a hand-tufted cover. For a finishing touch, our moisture-absorbent cotton is enriched with durable wool and hand-tufted for a premium feel and added element of durability and longevity.
When it comes to covers, you should always look for a hand-tufted one, as they tend to last the longest, keep the wool evenly spread and they’re also a clear indicator of a handmade product.
Review of Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress
There aren’t a lot of things not to like about this mattress. It is compactly filled with natural materials such as horse hair and lamb wool. The finishing is remarkable, the pocket sprung system is as good as it gets and according to our findings, you don’t need to flip or rotate it as nearly as often as some other pocket sprung mattresses. But even if you did, side handles make that job easy.
The mattress is very cool and breathable, cotton cover easily absorbs all the excess moisture and while we’re on the subject of absorbing stuff – if you sleep with a partner, the pocket sprung base will absorb all the movement resulting in a peaceful night of sleep.
On the flip side, this might not be ideal for you if you’re lightweight or you prefer sleeping on your side. At that point, you’re probably better off looking at some of the other product from the Signature line-up.
