Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere

The Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere mattress has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Hypnos Orthos Support mattresses.

Mattress shopping is difficult. There are so many options, so many brands, and so many different comfort levels to consider. It’s hard to know where to start. At Big Brand Beds, we want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision. So whether you’re looking for a memory foam mattress, a latex mattress, pocket sprung mattress or a hybrid mattress, our mattress reviews should give you all the information you need to make the right choice.

Choosing the right mattress is a very personal decision. But, it is also important to know how each mattress is made. It is a good idea to do a lot of research and read as many reviews as you can before you decide. If you're shopping for a new mattress, you probably have a lot of questions. We've got the answers, but if you have more, just ask. We'll help you find the mattress that's right for you.

This week our Hypnos mattress review is the Orthos Elite Cashmere.

We have already reviewed the Hypnos Orthocare 10 mattress which is a similar no turn version of this Hypnos mattress. This mattress review is a great way for you to compare them.

Ortho is a term that is used in so many medical sectors. It’s a Greek prefix meaning straight, upright, correct. Mixing the term with Elite and Cashmere give this Hypnos mattress a lot to live up to, so let’s see how it matches up to its name.

What's inside the Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere Mattress?

This 2 sided turnable Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere mattress comprises:
  • ReActive™ 9 turn pocket springs
  • Wool

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

Hypnos Mattress Review The Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere Mattress

We have this smart looking mattress on a platform top non storage divan in our bed shop. This gives the mattress the greatest chance at offering optimal support. The bed looks very smart, the aesthetics are very pleasing. There’s a euro slim Hypnos headboard to complete the look, which is available in a big selection of fabrics to create the bedroom of your dreams. The cocona-infused Belgian damask mattress cover is soft to touch and provides a fresh and hygienic sleeping surface.

On sitting on this firm Hypnos mattress, it gives slightly more than I expected even though it is paired with a platform top divan base. This is due to my entire weight being centred on a small area. Once laying down with my weight evenly distributed on the mattress it feels firmer. This is how I expected it to feel. It gives a little, but it is noticeably a firmer mattress. It has a very supportive feel, just what your body needs to help you sleep better. The support that this mattress gives does not leave you feeling like you are sinking into the mattress, and the feel will let you sleep soundly through the night. This appears to be an ideal mattress for a back sleeper.

It’s always worth trying a bed in all the positions you sleep in. I will always sleep on my side in the foetal position and this mattress, although firm was extremely comfortable for me. I guess that’s down to the generous layers of cashmere and wool upholstery in the mattress providing comfort to the pressure zones – shoulders, hips and feet. I’m not a big person and this held me in a comfortable position that I felt I could stay in for hours. The soft cashmere and wool work in perfect harmony with the 9 turned individually pocketed springs. This really is an excellent luxurious Hypnos mattress, and this is not just me saying so. After 20 minutes or so my body was telling me so. On my back and side my spine was feeling pressure free, and not having to thrash around to find the perfect position of comfort was a great benefit.

I’m one of those people that like to sit up in bed and watch tv. I know it’s not supposed to be good for getting a good nights sleep as your mind is supposed to switch off. However, it works for me as when I watch tv it makes me feel tired. So one test I like to do is sitting up against the headboard to see how it feels. Afterall, I spend a lot of time in this position. The mattress held up very well but gave a fraction more than when I sat on the edge on the bed. This is probably due to the edge support and the 3 rows of hand side stitching holding the mattress together.

Knowing that this mattress is turnable makes it even more attractive to me. I like the fact that I can flip it on a regular basis to have a fresh sleeping surface. Don’t worry if the prospect of having to turn a heavy and luxurious Hypnos mattress is daunting. We have a very similar model that requires no turning, the Hypnos Orthocare 10 and you can read all about it in one of our other Hypnos mattress reviews.

Which Hypnos divan base should I pair the Orthos Elite Cashmere mattress with?

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

The Orthos Elite Cashmere mattress is normally paired with a platform top divan to provide the best possible support. Within the Hypnos divan base range are:

  • Hypnos platform top divan base - pictured above
  • Hypnos Hideaway bed
  • Hypnos ottoman bed
  • Hypnos EasyStore divan base - Discontinued in September 2021

For a gentler feel choose a Hypnos sprung divan base

  • Hypnos firm edge divan base

The deep divan has further finishing touches which include a great choice of storage drawers. They can also be custom made to your specification, higher, lower, longer, shorter or wider. Hypnos beds are a truly bespoke option.

Upholstery fabrics are available in a wide range of different styles and colours, from bold and striking to subtle and sophisticated. Hypnos upholstery fabrics are designed to offer something to suit every taste. So whether you’re looking for upholstery fabric for your bed or headboard, Hypnos have something to suit.

The Hypnos headboard is designed to complement the Hypnos bed. Choose from our selection Hypnos headboards and fabrics to find the perfect match for your bedroom. And don’t forget that all Hypnos beds and mattresses come with a full 10 year guarantee.

Big Brand Beds Hypnos mattress review

Your relationship with your bed is one of the most important in your life. Wanting to go to bed knowing it gives that luxury, safe, supportive feeling, physically and emotionally are so important. The Hypnos Orthos Elite Cashmere mattress does just that. It is a firm mattress and is a great all rounder. It’s not too firm but if you want firmer Hypnos make an extra firm version. If you are a side sleeper then this mattress will give great support for your shoulders and hips helping you to sleep better. It is also great for a back sleeper or combination sleeper.

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