Gel mattresses are all the rage in the bed market. A relatively new technology, gel layers enable a mattress to mould to the contours of your body, ensuring good sleeping posture and comfort. They also regulate body temperature and prevent over-heating (unlike memory foam mattresses). Most gel mattresses combine layers of different materials such as gel with pocket springs.
With so much choice on the market, where to start? Dreams are the bedding connoisseurs and their therapur gel mattresses have all consistently gleaned top-notch reviews. They also have a fantastic range with the main difference between mattresses being the composition of the layers – some combine gel layers with springs, for example. All are best bought as part of a divan set that will work with the mattress to create the most comfortable combination.
