John Lewis Special Pocket Ortho 1600 Mattress, Kingsize

Product information

The Ortho collection has been designed for a firmer feel mattress without compromising on comfort, ensuring you get a good night's sleep every night.

Made in the UK, this hand-crafted kingsize mattress contains over 1,600 ReActive pocket springs, with each spring working independently to provide total body support.

The Ortho 1600 is upholstered with materials from sustainable sources, including dual density polyester and Airstream: these anti-allergenic fillings allow air to pass through the mattress in a vertical design, actively helping regulate your body temperature. Paired with a layer of British wool and recycled cotton blend, this mattress provides a natural softness so that you can fall asleep in peace.

Tufted to keep fillings even and maintain comfort, this mattress has machine side-stitched borders for longevity. Silver micro particles in the fabric finish, which inhibits dust mites, will provide a fresher, cleaner sleeping environment. Match this mattress with a non-sprung divan base or slatted bedstead to ensure firmer support.

This mattress has a higher spring count than its comparable year-round model.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfy We went into the store for a mattress test over the festive period which was well worth it, ended up spending a bit more than planned but very happy all the same. The delivery guys were fab, took it upstairs and fully unwrapped it, good job really as part the reason for the purchase was because of my wife back!! 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very firm, good night's sleep My husband prefers a firm mattress to sleep, and this one is excellent and at a much better price than some other ones on the market. JL delivery as usual excellent. 28 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mattress purchase We phoned to find out if you had a specific mattress in stock. Your call centre said no. In fact you did have the mattress on display, which was actually what we wanted, to help us make a decision, so this was confusing. You have copious amounts of information on mattresses, too much waffle frankly, yet the most important information being a measure of how hot each mattress is to sleep on is absent. We were told, some people are 'hot sleepers' and others are not. I have never heard so much rubbish in my life! The fact is you are not providing a measure of the thermal conductivity of the mattresses and you should be. On the plus side your staff are very good at giving guidance on how firm a mattress you need. Despite being very cautious, we still ended up with a mattress that was too hot to sleep on and had to send it back. you put far too much emphasis on softness with endless layers but you have forgotten that evey layer adds insulation. Sorry, you are trying hard, but you are far from succeeding. Your mattress range is far too large. We are still without a bed and I am still struggling to find out exactly what is in your mattresses, I.e what thickness or grams per cm information but none available. 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential Item Tried the mattress in the Bristol branch so knew this is the one we wanted. An excellent mattress medium firmness. Would certainly recommend it. 19 August 2014
