How we gathered research on the brands
In order to figure out the quality of the brands in question, we asked over 6,000 Which? members who had purchased a mattress within five years how they felt. We asked that they be completely honest with us. In order to get the scores we asked about the brand each person owned, their level of satisfaction and the likelihood they would tell a friend to buy one.
We also inquired about the mattress type, the reason behind their selection and whether their mattresses was comfortable and helped them sleep well, or whether they had a hard time turning over in bed.
