Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Orthocare 8

The Hypnos Orthocare 8 mattress has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Hypnos Orthocare Support mattress. You can read the review for the Hypnos Orthocare Support mattress here.

Hypnos Orthocare Support Mattress

The Hypnos Orthocare 8 mattress has quietly become the best selling Hypnos mattress in the orthos collection, just out doing the Orthocare 10 mattress. So I’m looking forward to finding out just why that is.

This week my Hypnos mattress review is the Orthocare 8.

We’re here to help you find the best mattress for you. Whether you’re looking to replace your current mattress, or you’re in the market for a new one, we can help. We carry the top name brands of mattresses, including Hypnos, and we make it easy for you to try them before you buy them. If you can't, we hope or Hypnos reviews will help.

In our bed shop on display is a Hypnos king size mattress in a firm tension on a platform top easystore divan base. The easystore base has one large drawer on either side giving an enormous storage capacity. In fact there is double the storage space of four standard drawers. They are also supremely strong holding a whopping 60kgs each. This Hypnos divan base is slightly higher than the standard bases, measuring 46cm high, which is a small price to pay for the additional storage. The bed is completed with a stunning floor standing Hypnos headboard upholstered to match the base. However, standing at over 6 foot the additional height is not a problem for me. Now that base could already have sold this Hypnos bed to me, but I’d better carry out a Hypnos mattress review.

What's inside the Hypnos Orthocare 8 Mattress?

This no turn Hypnos Orthocare 8 mattress comprises:

  • ReActive™ 8 turn pocket springs
  • Wool
  • Silk
  • eOlus™

Hypnos Orthocare 8 mattress finishing touches:

  • Chemical free Belgian damask mattress cover
  • Hand tufted
  • 2 rows of hand side stitching
  • Flag stitched handles (4 on a single Hypnos mattress and 8 on a double Hypnos mattress and bigger)
  • 16 air vents on a double Hypnos mattress and bigger
  • The Orthocare 8 mattress is available in a firm or extra firm tension

Information on all the upholstery fillings and springs can be found on our Hypnos bed & mattress product information page.

Initially I am taken with the crisp off white damask tick with a subtle self-coloured stripe. This Hypnos mattress is hand tufted with woollen pompoms which secure the fillings. 2 rows of hand side stitching ensure that the Hypnos king size mattress I am about to lye on offers support across the whole width of the mattress.

On laying down, my immediate thought is that this is the firmest Orthocare mattress. Although they are all available in a firm and extra firm tension, all 4 models have a slightly different feel. After 5 minutes, I know this is the firmest model as I have just tried the others. The layers of wool and silk provide comfort on top of the firm spring unit. I am definitely most comfortable when lying on my back. I’m also reasonably comfortable on my front, which is not a natural sleeping position for me. After several minutes on my side I feel I could do with a little more give, but then I am used to sleeping on a much softer bed. We also have the extra firm Hypnos Orthocare 8 mattress in our bed shop, so I hop onto that. If you like a good firm mattress this Hypnos mattress is definitely the one for you.

Which Hypnos divan base should I pair the Orthocare 8 mattress with?

For a firmer more supportive feel choose a platform top divan base

  • Hypnos platform top divan base
  • Hypnos Hideaway bed
  • Hypnos ottoman bed - pictured above
  • Hypnos EasyStore divan base

For a gentler feel choose a Hypnos sprung divan base

  • Hypnos firm edge divan base

Marks Hypnos mattress review

Overall, I understand why this is one of the most popular Hypnos mattresses for sale in our bed shop as the demand for firmer mattresses is great. However, I’m going to stick with my Orthocare 10 which is slightly softer and has generous layers of cashmere and wool upholstery.

As there are several choices in this Hypnos mattress range you might ask:

What is the difference between the Hypnos mattresses in their Orthocare collection?

Every bed is crafted differently, so it only makes sense that the materials that make them up are also different. Here at Big Brand Beds, we’ve put together a guide below to help you understand your different mattress options in the Hypnos Orthocare collection. You don’t have to choose just one type of mattress for your bed. Not everyone likes the same kind of mattress, and that’s okay. It’s good to have options.
