Choosing the best double mattress

Double mattresses are one of the most popular mattress sizes, chosen by couples and single sleepers alike. 

Choosing the right mattress for your needs and sleeping style from an array of mattress types can be daunting. We’re here to help you consider the key questions when purchasing a double mattress. 

What size is a double mattress? 

A standard, UK-size double mattress measures 4 feet 6 inches wide and 6 foot 3 inches long (135cm x 190cm). 

Is a double mattress the best choice for me?

Double mattresses are the most common bed size in a UK household as they comfortably accommodate two adults and give a single sleeper plenty of space to spread out.

Whether sleeping with a partner or alone, double mattresses are terrific for master bedrooms and will fit most regular-sized bedrooms. 

If you’re concerned about storage space, Ottomans and storage beds can turn your double bed into a highly practical piece of furniture. 

What type of double mattress is best for me?

The perfect type of mattress for you depends on your sleeping position, preference and of course, the size of your bedroom. The best news is we have a mattress for every need. 

Couples will benefit from double pocket spring mattresses that reduce movement transfer and stop you from waking up when your partner tosses and turns.

Those sleeping alone might enjoy the contouring effects of a memory foam double mattress – memory foam moulds around your body to offer support where most needed. 

Sleepers who suffer from back pain are best investing in a mattress with orthopaedic level support, like our double Ortho Memory Mattress.

For allergy or asthma suffers, a hypoallergenic double mattress is great for relieving symptoms. 

Which mattress firmness is right for my sleeping position?

Your sleeping position matters when it comes to choosing the right mattress firmness for you. Depending on whether you are a side, front or back sleeper, you will need the best spinal and back support that your mattress can give. 

In general, side sleepers tend to benefit from soft to medium-firm double mattresses. Spring and pocket sprung mattresses are best for reducing pressure points from forming on your shoulders and hips, as well as keeping your spine aligned.

Back sleepers, on the other hand, require firmer mattresses for adequate back support. A double mattress that is too soft does not promote ideal spinal alignment and is likely to cause back pain.

A medium-firm to firm mattress will prevent front sleepers from arching their back to an awkward angle when sleeping. 

Your weight will also come to play when choosing the best double mattress type. As a rule of thumb, the heavier you are the firmer the mattress should be. 

Naturally, when buying a double mattress for a couple, you will need to consider both of your needs and weights. Pocket sprung mattresses with a high spring count are excellent for stopping movement from transferring from one side of the bed to the other. Memory foam mattresses are also a great choice if you need individualised support for each sleeper.
