Why have we chosen these mattresses?

Why have we chosen these mattresses?

If you’re a side sleeper you’re not alone – it’s the most popular position around. You’ll also find that, as a side sleeper, there’s more pressure on your shoulders and hips.

That’s why we recommend you go for a medium or medium/soft mattress that’ll let you gently sink-into the mattress, with minimal disturbance to the natural alignment of your spine.

Of course, everyone is different and we can only make broad recommendations. This is why we also offer a 60 night comfort guarantee to help you get used to your mattress. If you’re still not comfortable after 60 days of using your new mattress, you can exchange it for another one for free.

60 night comfort exchange

Our comfort exchange gives you 60 nights to get really comfortable before making a decision. If you're still not loving your new mattress within 60 nights from delivery, you can exchange it for another mattress. It's as simple as that.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick your new mattress on the official Silentnight website
  2. Sleep on it for at least 28 nights as it can take a little time to adjust to a new mattress
  3. If you're not happy after the initial 28 nights you can exchange it for a new mattress, as long as you claim within 60 nights of delivery
