There’s a wide variety of pocket sprung mattresses available here at DFS. Designed to relieve pressure and provide ample comfort, pocket sprung mattresses contain many individual springs that adjust to a sleeper’s body throughout the night. Thanks to this, pocket sprung mattresses are a popular choice for couples. This is because the individually pocketed springs ensure that neither sleeper’s movements disturb the other.
Pocket sprung mattresses don’t just focus on one benefit for sleepers; they’re also great options for sleepers with different needs. This is true whether they’re looking for a comfortable mattress to alleviate back pain, provide joint support, contour to sleepers’ bodies, or all of the above.

A pocket sprung mattress uses steel springs isolated in their own individual pockets, surrounded by materials like foam and fibre fillings, to create an all-round supportive and comfortable mattress. There’s huge variety in this mattress type, from budget-friendly rolled mattresses by Silentnight, luxury hybrid memory foam and pocket sprung mattresses from Sealy, and even sustainable, fully recyclable pocket sprung mattresses from Harrison Spinks. As one of the most popular types of mattresses, they are available in a range of sizes - from single pocket sprung mattresses, to standard and small double pocket sprung mattresses, and up to king and super king size pocket sprung mattresses.
The benefits of pocket sprung mattresses include offering great targeted support, isolating movement (to avoid disturbing your partner), and providing excellent airflow within the mattress. They’re also a very popular option, and come in many firmness levels - from super soft to firm pocket sprung mattresses. There aren’t many cons to a pocket sprung mattress, although some of the luxury options can come with quite a high price tag - but here at DFS we stock pocket sprung mattresses suitable for all budgets, from our pocket-friendly affordable options to top-of-the-range luxury models. While they are definitely a supportive mattress option, pocket sprung mattresses won’t respond in quite the same way to pressure as a memory foam mattress will - the latter of which are seen as the best option when it comes to supportive mattresses.
A standard spring or open coil mattress uses a similar construction to a pocket sprung mattress, with a selection of steel springs embedded in the mattress to help distribute weight and support you while you sleep. However, in a pocket sprung mattress, each of these springs are isolated in their own individual pockets, which not only makes the mattress construction more robust, but helps to isolate any movement to a smaller area of the mattress.
