Anyone got a SIMBA mattress?

Looking at one of these as I just don't sleep well on the medium mattress I have now, and have basically constant back pain and unrestful sleep. 

Simba seems to tick all the boxes, gets great reviews and has a 100 night no questions asked trial. Also allows for 0% as well, so I can keep the money in my bank and pay over the next few months, if I want. 

But looking for real world feedback from anyone who has one before I bite the bullet.

    Is it made from real lion cubs?


    I'll get my coat.

    We've been thinking about a new mattress too. Didn't know anything about Simba but I just had a quick look at their site. At least their price is reasonable .. a Tempur mattress is over two grand for a king size.  o

    Seeing as how they do the 100 night free trial thing why not just give it a go?

    Seriously this time, I'm looking for a new matress as well. Somebody recommended Casper https://casper.com/uk/en/

    Listen to a podcast or two and you'll find a load of discount codes available for casper or samba mattresses.

    Seems very similar to the Simba (and the "EVE") for that matter. But Simba has a Pocket Spring layer, which I like the sound of. Just need to persuade the wife and I'm going to order one I think.

    There seem to be several makers all with the same sort of super-hi-tech adverts. Simba / Casper / Leesa etc etc

    They appear to be similar products.

    They do interest me - my missus has spine surgery several years ago and finds comfortable sleeping to be very rare.

    Yep - Emma and Simba are both manufactured in Derby too, so probably using the same materials and/or coming out of the same factory. 

    the 100 night thing kind of makes it a no brainer, but I suppose if it's no good, and you've got rid of your old mattress, you're stumped with having to try and find another at short notice.

    Ours is Tempur is super king. Didn't pay anything like that for it though ( although I think there are slightly different grades of what they do). The process seems to be that if you buy direct you can get the free trial or buy from a shop for half the price but no free trial ( just normal consumer rights). It's fine but I can't say it's changed my world although MrsTheWeary ( who spends a lot longer in bed than I do) loves it.

    I was looking on the Tempur site yesterday, the basic grade kingsize was over £2k. I don't bother looking any further! 

    What a strange set up (Tempur's, not you and your wife!). If you were smart, you could try the mattress on the 100 night trial, say you didn't like it, send it back and then buy it from a shop for half the cost.

    Yep, I'm pretty sure you could. 

    Amazing how much a mattress can cost when you start looking at places like John Lewis. I'm not sure knowing I'd spent £5k on a mattress would actually let me rest easily.

    I changed mattress recently. Looked at all of the new ones and ended up ordering an Otty. Springs and foam like the Simba, but also a cooling gel layer. And free pillows, which turned out to be excellent.

    Took a few nights to get used to it but now very comfy. I doubt there's a vast difference between them all, but the cooling thing is nice.

    Bookmarked - mattress is wearing out, and I'm a sweaty b***ard at the best of times.

    Googling the shit out of that later then. Is it relatively firm and supportive? as mine feels like a waterbed at the minute, which plays havoc with my back.

    I got a Simba about 10 months ago thinking I'd get it collected in the 1st hundred days if I didn't like it.
    really comfy. never considered sending it back.
    the only downside was we needed bigger fitted sheets to accommodate the thicker mattress, although standard size will do the job in the short term

    It is. It's a bit odd, in that it feels quite firm (not uncomfortably so) when lying on my back, but I mostly sleep on my side and it's nicely supportive that way too. The previous mattress was a traditional pocket-sprung with a foam topper and had huge dimples in it which were quite annoying; the Otty is better in all respects.

    sounds like I need to order one of these STAT. Free pillows are a nice bonus too.

    We got the dog bed too, and it's the first one that Sprocket has deemed good enough to sleep on. The snobby bitch.
