Who is Happy Beds Signature 3000 Mattress for?

A pocket sprung mattress could be a great fit for anyone that prefers a slightly firmer feel when they lie down. Furthermore, a mattress like this would be especially useful for heavier sleepers, such as the ones that prefer to sleep on their stomach.

The support and firmness you get from this mattress can be more than useful on plenty of occasions, so we'd say that this is a fairly well-rounded mattress that can pretty much fit anyone's needs.

What do we use this product for?

Just like any other mattress, we use this 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. For this – we suggest you checking our guide on mattresses for heavy people. Or even our guide on the best pocket spring mattresses that offer 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.

Natural materials

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.

Moisture-absorbent cotton

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.

Pocket springs

Easily the main and the most important feature of Signature 3000 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.

Hand-tufted cotton

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

a product image of Happy Beds Signature 3000

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.

If it seems like the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress might not be the right fit for you, take a look at the best alternative.

Simba Hybrid Luxe Mattress

If you like what the Signature 3000 Crystal pocket-sprung mattress has to offer but would like a more luxurious sleeping experience, Simba has you covered! While it's not as firm, the Simba Hybrid Luxe will definitely bring you enough support and stability to put a smile on your face.

This is because it comes packing with 3 spring layers, with each having 6000 aerocoil springs. So, your body will definitely be supported throughout the night. However, being a hybrid, the Simba Hybrid Luxe also utilises memory foam.

And if you were hoping for a slightly softer-feeling mattress and some pressure-relief, the addition of memory foam is a huge plus. But, with that being said, do keep in mind that it's a medium-firm mattress. So, if you're a stomach sleeper and/or of a larger build, you'd be better off with the Signature 3000 Crystal pocket-sprung mattress.

Consider the Panda Memory Foam Bamboo pillow if you are buying the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress

our reviewer holding the Panda memory foam pillow

A good mattress can be wasted without an accompanying pillow; therefore, we feel you should pair these two together. The Panda Memory Foam Bamboo pillow will provide you with all the necessary support and comfort for your neck and head, while also keeping you quite cool during the night.

And if you're going for the the Signature 3000 Crystal pocket-sprung mattress, these are probably very important factors. For one, just like the mattress supports your back, you need a good pillow to support your head and neck! And if you want a mattress for mositure-wicking cotton, a pillow with breathable babmoo should be up your alley as well.

Furthermore, this is a hypoallergenic pillow, which means you won’t have to worry about dust mites or other allergens at any point. And, staying on theme, if you liked that the mattress uses natural materials, why not use the same principle for your pillow?

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress is one of the best pocket sprung mattresses on the market. High spring count allows it to be better at motion isolation, support and overall comfort. Furthermore, the higher the spring count, the more durable and long-lasting mattress becomes. Finally, the price of this mattress really puts it in the great value category, which is not something we can say about some other high-count pocket sprung mattresses.

How did we test the product?

Signature 3000 Crystal testing

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.


In conclusion, if you want a slightly firmer mattress that also uses natural materials and is relatively cheap, the Signature 3000 Crystal pocket-sprung mattress makes for an excellent choice! But if it doesn't quite suit your fancy, just stick with The Sleep Advisors and we'll be sure to find a mattress that's better suited for you.

Spread the word

FAQs about your new Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung mattress

Finally, we’ve wanted to end things off by answering several frequently asked questions. We firmly believe that sometimes the best way to describe a product is to answer a few straightforward questions, instead of just highlighting the key features because at the end of the day – there’s only so much you can talk about a product based on a description.

Is the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung mattress made entirely from natural materials?

In a word, yes. The comfort layers and the cover of a Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress are all made of natural materials.

How do I wash my Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung mattress?

There are various methods of removing various stains, but in general, you'd clean your mattress either by vacuuming or with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent. Baking soda and vinegar could also come in handy.

Is Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung mattress hypoallergenic?

No. Even though wool and cotton are naturally hypoallergenic, the Signature 3000 Crystal Pocket Sprung Mattress is not hypoallergenic as a whole.

As a CPD certified Sleep Consultant I know how important sleep is. And as a combination sleeper, I have found it difficult to get products to suit my sleep style. I have more than 2 years product testing experience with The Sleep Advisors which means I have slept on, with and under more than 500 products with varying degrees of success. This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
