Simba hybrid mattress, medium tension, small double: Was £829, now £580.30, Johnlewis.com
In our guide to the best mattresses, our reviewer highly rated this hybrid design from Simba, which has five layers including a patented sprung one with up to 3,000 durable micro springs as well as foam sections.
“We think it’s best for side and front sleepers, and that goes for people of any shape or size. If you’re prone to waking up with aches and pains, especially in your back, you’ll really notice the spinal support. The sinkage is spot on too – you don’t feel like you’re descending into the mattress itself, as is the case with some pure foam mattresses,” they said.
