During the annual Black Friday rush, there are plenty of shiny products that might capture your attention. But, really, what you should be focusing on are those one-off, expensive, life-enhancing buys that your future self will thank you for. Case in point: a really good mattress.
If you want to optimise your sleep, stave off back pain and wake up feeling refreshed, then one of these deserves a place on your shopping list. Good news is, sleep brand Simba has already reduced the price of their infamous mattresses by 45%– including one that has been tried, tested and rated as 'best hybrid' by the expert testing team at the Women's Health Lab.
Until Friday 26th November, it's yours for £483.45 for a double, down from £879, or £549.45, down from £999, for a king size.
So, why is a hybrid so great? It's because, if back pain is an issue for you, most chiropractors agree that back pain sufferers should choose either a firm, dense foam mattress or a hybrid spring and foam mattress – like this one.
Why the Women's Health Lab love the Simba Hybrid Mattress
Some context: To find the best mattress for back pain, the people in the Women's Health Lab thoroughly researched the market and compiled a representative list of 54 mattresses from 29 brands. Then, they sent a detailed questionnaire to our reader panel of thousands and asked them to return it if they owned one of our chosen mattresses.
Over 1,400 readers gave them all the intel on how supportive, comfortable and durable their mattress has proved to be, in some cases long-term.
The Simba hybrid mattress combines a firm spring core with mouldable foam layers. There's also a 200-night free trial to put your mind at rest, but we doubt you'll need that long to fall in love.
Three quarters of readers with back problems said it keeps pain at bay, while also feeling comfortable to snuggle into. It doesn't creak at all, even when you move, and is more breathable than many rivals.
It doesn't have that telltale 'memory foam smell', it offers decent value for money and it's 100% recyclable.
