If it's for occasional use or a small child it will be fine, if for regular use or use by teenager or adult spend a bit more and buy a pocket sprung mattress
#6
Seems a reasonable price and would be quite suitable for a child's bed, thanks OP, purchased...!

Open spring is the old-style design, budget option. As stated above, pocket-spring is what you want.
Avoid single-sided, non-turn ones as well; all mattresses should be regularly turned. More springs doesn't necessarily mean better, as they get really small on size the more you pack in. Somewhere around 1200 should be fine i think. Finally, don't go too deep on the memory foam either, as it gets too warm and difficult for you to turn over when in bed. One-inch is enough!
Remember, you spend a third of your life in bed, three-quarters for teenagers, so it is worth investing in a good mattress!

Very good points.
I have a bad back and I don't know what mattress I should go for, I started some research, after I bought a "firm" foam mattress from Ikea (£160 for a 160cm one) but it's no good for my back from what I can tell.

I looked at pocket springs, usually they are advertised as "the more the better".

I even looked at a £2000 mattress like this one: http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-natural-collection-silk-12000-mattress-kingsize/p557293 but a bit out of my budget.
Their brochure also talks about The more springs in your mattress,
the better the comfort and support

if you have a bad back then you will need a firm ortho mattress which usually are open spring types, pocket sprung are good mattresses but not much available in the ortho range, ortho mattress have extra support for the back, have a look at some miracoil ortho from silentnight

Haven't a clue regarding mattresses is this a good one, thinking if getting it for my sons bed. It comes with the bed frame , it's a made to measure one so haven't much choice.

Featuring a 13.5 Gauge Spring unit the Milano Mattress offers a soft and comfortable feel with a springing system that works to evenly distribute body weight ensuring the Mattress retains it natural shape each time you use it.

Years ago I spent a lot of time researching mattresses. Here is the details I summarised in an email to a friend:

"There is lots of guff and fake marketing. For example the 'No-turn' mattress is a positive marketing spin on a cost-cutting. Basically you are getting half a mattress which can't be turned over. So you get half the lifespan.

You have two key types:
1. Pocket sprung
2. Open Coil

First is individual springs. Each spring work independently. Pro's: two people won't roll together and each part of your body is independently supported. Cons: more expensive and more fragile. Also it needs close slates base or solid. Otherwise individual springs can slip between the slate gaps and break. They often sell more springs as better. That again is fake.

With the second, Open Coil, the springs are interlinked. Cheaper and stronger. You can still get open coils that are very good. Look for 13.5 inches, high guage springs and ensure enough padding on springs.

Memory foam sort of moulds to you to give you even support, but you sink into it so it is a little warmer. So maybe avoid the too thick memory foam if you don't like sleeping too hot. Also more likely to lock you into one sleep position, which might not be ideal for everyone."

Open coil is perfectly fine for a kid <10.

I like the Sealy mattresses and their orthos are apparently the only one to get some sort of OK from an Ortho Professional Group (sorry for the vagueness) anyway there is a new one listed in Argos for £200 Sealy Posteurpedic Ortho and don't know if its a typo but a 10 yr gtee. Am looking for a new mattress but Argos delivery monkeys put me off (Uh? This Mattress don't fit easily. Uh why don't we roll it up/ fold it to fit in the van? Uh Good idea! Let's go for it).

Sealy are part of the Silentnight group i beIieve!

Be careful of generic terms such as 'Ortho', as it tends to be used and abused and won't necessarily give you a mattress that is good for YOUR back!

You are swimming in a pool full of sharks and so it is worth doing your research. I spent many hours, felt like days, looking at what to buy and you wouldn't believe how technical it gets. It's no wonder so many people end up with the wrong mattress!

The best on the market are Tempur and Vi-Sping, but they cost a bloody fortune! There is a company that produce copies of them at a much discounted rate; they do factory beds direct to the public, if you get my meaning! They give out plenty of advice on their website and it is certainly an excellent starting point. I haven't used them myself and so i don't want this to come across as a recommendation, but merely a starting point for your investigation. And by the way, i am in no way associated with this industry in way, shape or form! :-)

Good luck and HTH.

If you look at the John Lewis brochure I linked to above, they start by showing you the correct spinal position during sleep and generally all sellers do include some reference to "comfort for you back" and similar.
But even on the > £1200 mattress from John Lewis, reviews are very mixed with people mentioning they have back pain from those mattresses. All in all, it seems it is more or less a lottery.

One thing to mention for those searching for a good mattress and being afraid they might make the wrong choice:

Ikea offers 60 days try at home and return if not satisfied.
John Lewis might offer free returns as well, according to their website, although it is not something specific for mattresses and they might argue they are excluded as they are custom made.

I was wrong about that turns out its the Sealy Posturepedic (not Ortho) that is the only sleep system approved by the Orthopedic Advisory Board.

IIRC Ortho in conjunction with Sealy means their 'firmest' beds. Graded as 5 for instance in Bensons For Beds.

No Orthopedic Advisory Board approval stamp on their site. They have lots of others, so they would definitely show this one as well.
Not sure where you get your info from, just from memory?

Foam, can normally get decent ones from ikea for £100~ iirc I know its more expensive but when you are going to be sleeping on it for atleast 5 hours a day its worth it.

No, I read it as I typed it. But my PC History cannot find it, but no matter a quick google "sealy system Orthopedic Advisory Board" gets plenty of hits inc Sealy web

http://www.sealy.co.uk/deeper-sleep/endorsements/orthopedic-advisory-board/

But I also read Sealy formed that Board! (_;) Maybe smoke and mirrors. Maybe something else.

EDIT: OAB Approval stamp too on link given.

I wouldn't order a mattress from Argos. Just spoke with them about my order for an Airsprung mattress I ordered a week ago. The delivery time was now changed to middle of February, even thought it was showing as available at the time of ordering. see my listing and the last post here:

I had a delivery time and day confirmed with them last week. Initially, from delivery within 5 days they changed to delivery in 10 days. I thought it was worth waiting, but when I called today (delivery was going to be on Monday) they said that the earliest estimated delivery was for middle of February...
