A Super-Simple Guide To The Different Mattress Sizes

Your no-nonsense guide to the different UK mattress sizes.     Spring has unofficially sprung. Something we realised when we saw people doing that typical springy thing of pairing shorts with puffa jackets and t-shirts with woolly hats, no one really sure what’s weather-appropriate.

But there is a silver lining to this glum news — you get to spend more time in bed (probably with your duvet wrapped around you so that you’re sort of like the friendly filling in a bedding version of a Gregg’s Veggie Sausage Roll).   It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a SilentNight mattress that’s nearing its retirement age or you’ve just bought a Hypnos sleep platform, nothing beats those winter
