If your current mattress is making you wake up feeling sore and tired – maybe you should find another one. Today, we wanted to talk to you about Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam and whether you should consider buying this one. We’ve spent some time testing this one and here’s what we have to say about it.
First up, let's start with some basics. As you know, every mattress is different and this one, in particular, should be more than helpful to those struggling with back or hip pain. Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam mattress is specially designed to offer unparalleled support and comfort to those who might need it.
As you can tell from the name, this mattress has 3-zone support for much better pressure relief and comfort in the areas that need it the most, like hips, lower back and shoulders.

Ideally, you'd use this mattress to try and get rid of the annoying, sleep-related pain. Miratex 3-zone support system is designed to disperse your weight in such a way that it won't build up pressure in the usual pressure-sensitive areas such as hips, lower back and shoulder. Furthermore, the 3-zone support will also make sure you sleep in the ideal position at all times, regardless of the sleeping position.
Silentnight 3 Zone memory foam mattress is the middle child of Silentnight's “Mattress-Now” lineup, which would make it an upgraded version of the previous model. The entry-level mattress in this lineup is a regular memory foam mattress, with a single, memory foam support layer, as opposed to the 3-zone support system that we see in the product we’re reviewing.
Just like any other mattress, Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam mattress has its own set of defining features. As you can tell by the name, the main defining feature is the Miratex zoned support system, however, that’s not all there is to this mattress.
If we were to take Silentnight’s word for it – the Miratex 3-zone support system would offer us unparalleled support and pressure relief across core zones, while simultaneously being luxurious and body moulding for the ultimate sense of comfort. Seeing how these are some mighty claims, we’ve paid special attention to this feature.
The contouring and pressure relief once you lie down on this mattress is immediately noticeable, which is always a plus. It feels good and comfortable, the difference from a regular mattress is definitely there, however, in some instances it does seem like there is too much sinkage, which could be a problem in the long run.
If you're familiar with Silentnight's mattresses you've certainly noticed a trend of non-removable mattress covers. Some would argue that a removable cover on a mattress is not important, seeing how you won't sleep directly on it, however, we do appreciate an easy-to-remove and easy-to-clean cover on our mattresses.
On the bright side of things, the cover feels really premium and soft. It isn’t quilted or hand-tufted, but the thread count is decent and what’s even more important is that the fibres from which the cover is made are hypoallergenic, which is a must-have feature in a mattress in our opinion.
Purotex fibres are Allergy UK approved, meaning you’re guaranteed a dust-mite-free environment and if you’re struggling with allergies, this one should help right away.
Just like any other memory foam mattress, this one comes in a roll – rolled & wrapped, regardless of the size you opt-out for. This also means you will have to give it some time to settle, but at least you won't have to worry about it fitting through the doors. So, as it is in a roll, it will need at least a couple of hours to retain its original shape.
There are 7 different sizes to choose from for your purchase in the shop and once the mattress has finally settled, it should be perfectly flat and 18cm deep.
As with every other rolled & wrapped mattress, off-gassing will be an issue in the first few weeks, but in our experience, the mattress should be odourless within 10 to 14 days.
Now that we’ve covered the main features and told you a bit about them, it’s time for us to let you know whether this mattress is as great in practice as it is in theory. First of all, the Miratex 3-zone support layer does what they claim it does – it relieves pressure off of core zones, that’s without a doubt. Regardless of the body weight, this mattress uses a zoned foam support system and ensures you more sleep space that offers a medium support for the entire body.
As far as firmness goes, it is a bit on the softer side than advertised, but even the stomach sleepers should be able to enjoy it. We'd give it 4.5/5 out of 10. As far as enjoyment goes, the cover does feel really good on your skin and none of our testers had experienced any issues allergen-wise, so that's a plus.

On the other side of the spectrum, we do feel like the sinkage could pose some longevity and durability issues. The mattress conforms to the body very well, but after prolonged use, it tends to retain the body shape, therefore, you'll have to rotate it quite frequently. In addition, there is no removable cover so getting a mattress protector is a must if you want to give it a longer lifespan. Off-gassing is an issue, but that's a standard procedure for any memory foam mattress, so we wouldn't really worry about it.
As in all our bed/mattress reviews, we always have a couple of aces in our sleeves, just in case you don't like what we review. When finding the perfect mattress, it’s important that you explore your options completely. Here are two solid alternatives to Silentnight 3 Zone memory foam mattress, so you can cross-compare the three and see which one is the most fitting.
With Emma Essential 7 Zone, you get 7, instead of 3 zones of support. Emma’s HRX technology claims to provide perfect alignment and counter-pressure, which it does – to a certain extent.
If you have pressure points that need some reliving, we guarantee this pick will work out for you. We wouldn’t call this one an upgrade over Silentnight 3-zone, but it does come with a removable cover.
With a good comfort rating and the next day delivery, this purchase could give you a bit of healthier sleep, especially due to the removable cover that you wash easily.

If you're in the market for something similar, but more substantial in terms of thickness, Inofia Essential might be a solid choice. Inofia has a problem-completing reputation as it often serves the needs of sleepers who suffer from some kind of a pain.
This one does not have a zoned memory foam support layer, but it does have 9 zones of pocket-coiled support that are just as good, if not even better, at dispersing weight and relieving pressure. It will give you a comfy feeling even though some of the online reviews may say it is not that comfortable.
In addition, this mattress offers a decent temperature regulation so your body temperature won't make you hot and sweaty during the night.
