You may have seen the OTTY mattress for sale and thought perhaps that the low price meant low quality. Is this the case? Or is the OTTY mattress the bargain of the century? Let’s investigate and find out whether or not the OTTY mattress is as good for your sleep as it is for your pocket…
What is the OTTY mattress made of?
The OTTY is a hybrid mattress. This means that it contains both memory foam and springs. Could this be the best of both worlds? Overall the OTTY is around 25cm deep. That’s about average, so you shouldn’t find it any taller or lower than your current mattress and it should fit fine in most bed frames. The OTTY mattress is suitable for all bed bases, so whether you have a slatted base or a flat base, you’ll be fine with an OTTY.
These days, it’s all about the layers when it comes to mattresses, so let’s have a closer look at the layers within the OTTY…
At the bottom of the OTTY mattress you have a base layer made up of 5 cm of high density foam. On top of this is the spring layer. This is the thickest layer at 14 cm deep and contains 2000 capsule springs. It is thought that capsule springs are the best layer for helping to support your body weight during sleep and so giving you the best support possible. The springs are topped with a 3 cm layer of memory foam. We all know how comfortable memory foam can be, as it moulds itself to our bodies, but it can be rather hot. The OTTY combats this heat with a final top layer consisting of 3 cm of cool blue gel memory foam. This is a special layer specifically developed for OTTY mattresses and is made to help maintain a medium temperature at all times. Not too hot, not too cold, just perfect. Goldilocks would certainly approve!
All these layers are neatly packed within a washable cover. It’s not the most stylish of covers, but really, does it matter? How long do you actually spend admiring your mattress cover?

The cost of the OTTY mattress
The main selling feature of the OTTY mattress is the low price. A UK single costs just £349 but even the largest option, the Super King is a very reasonable £649. I imagine also, that the UK Double at £449 would be highly popular, and it’s just £100 more for the king size.
The range of sizes
If you have a particularly unusual size of bed, then you might just be out of luck with the OTTY range. However, they do cover all the standard sizes, including small double. There are seven size options in the OTTY range: UK Single, Small Double, UK Double, EU Double, UK King, EU King and Super King.

What do we think about the OTTY mattress?
You get a lot for your money with the OTTY mattress. If you’re looking for a cheap mattress, but are worried about compromising on quality then this could be a good choice. It’s a medium to firm mattress, so will suit all but those who require a very soft mattress. We did find, as with most memory foam mattresses, that there is a slight chemical smell when you open the packaging, but this does dissipate after a few hours. Just open the packaging, open the window and allow it to air for while before making up the bed. This is a comfortable, quality mattress that will give you comfort and keep you cool.
