Mattresses Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of mattress would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
The best mattress we've ever slept on
The mattress is super comfortable and supportive. We had a plush pillowtop mattress costing $3000 before this and both of us developed lower backache from sleeping on it.
It was the first thing we noticed with the Hidrasund. Our lower backs felt relief as the mattress supported it. The huge difference in softness took some getting used to but after a week it felt natural and super comfortable. We are both sleeping deeper than we did in the last ten years and look forward to going to sleep.
The only negative is the smell. For a mattress that is supposed to be all natural, it stinks like a new car tyre. The smell has lessened considerably over the last four weeks but I expect it will take a couple of months before the smell is completely gone. It even seeps into our bedding and pyjamas.
The only other potential downside is the weight. It's super heavy. So make sure you have a sturdy bed or base.
None of the two above mentioned negatives take away from our experience, the blissful sleep and the feeling of being rested and ache free in the morning. We both love it and are glad we bought it. I have recommended it to all my friends.
The cool side of your pillow!
We were moving house and needed a bed for the spare room- we had bought the Hyllstad mattress from Ikea and were happy with it (see previous review) but had heard about the natural materials in this mattress. We put the old mattress in the spare room and got this for ourselves!
It’s quite a firm mattress - a bit but not too much firmer than our previous. The natural materials feel great though. When you sleep on it it’s like you don’t generate any heat from the mattress like synthetic ones do. It’s a hefty price tag at $799 for a queen but when we looked at other stores they just didn’t compare price wise. In a few we were being offered a basic spring mattress for the same price and at Ikea we got NATUAL latex?!
The best way to describe it is: when you move from one position to another- it’s like flipping your pillow to the cool side!
Very glad we upgraded!!!
