Thankfully shopping for a new mattress is not something we need to do often – but if it’s time to upgrade your bed we’ve put together this list of product benefits of a Pocket Spring mattress.
This article is a handy guide if you purchased your current mattress 5 to 10 years ago as the changes to mattress technology will impress you.
What You Need to Know About Pocket Spring Mattresses
The Pocket Spring Mattress is not new on the market, but like so many products it is now more affordable than ever.
The once popular Bonnell Spring and its variations have largely been superseded by the Pocket Spring or Coil System which, when properly constructed, deliver next level comfort and reliability.

Pocket Spring Mattress Technology
Importantly the foundation of a mattress is key to the overall success of the design and function. Over the lifetime of a mattress the springs will compress and recover over and over.
How well the springs recover will depend on a number of factors including:
- the quality of the steel,
- the number of turns in each spring, and
- the number of springs sharing the load.
Next is where the newer Pocket Spring parts company with more traditional spring variations you’re probably more familiar with.
In traditional systems (such as the Bonnell or Continuous Coil) each spring is connected to the springs next to it. This holds them together ensuring stability. While it makes them more secure, it also means when one spring moves they all do. That’s why some mattresses are bouncy.
The difference with a Pocket Spring Mattress is that each pocket spring is contained entirely within a fabric pocket.
I like to think of it like a sock encasing a separate foot, or in this instance, an individual spring.
This allows the springs to perform independently of each other and because they’re not attached to the spring beside them each can compress and recover individually.
Benefits of a Pocket Spring Mattress
It’s all about contouring and your comfort!
Less Partner Disturbance
First and foremost, one of the major benefits of the Pocket Spring Mattress is that only the springs you are lying on will move – and because the movement is vertical it reduces transference of lateral movement.
So, Pocket Springs eliminate or at least dramatically reduce partner disturbance.
If you have a partner who is heavier than you, you’ll really love the fact that you won’t roll together. Great news on our hot summer nights.
Of course the spring system has to have a comfort layer on top that will compliment all the pocket spring benefits. That’s a whole other topic and I’ll catch you up on the variations of comfort layers in in my next post.
