OTTY Mattress Review

For this OTTY mattress review, we look at what makes this value-option such a versatile mattress here in the UK. The OTTY mattress is a hybrid mattress this means it’s a combination of foam layers and pocket springs. The specs are impressive and the stand out feature is the pocket springs. This is also the most affordable online mattress we have reviewed.

Scroll down for the OTTY mattress review (SUMMARY AT THE END).  

OTTY Mattress Construction 

We will start off this OTTY Hybrid mattress review by saying it is hypoallergenic. This means it is a low hazard to those who are prone to allergies, it’s very unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.  The OTTY mattress also stands out compared to the abundant online mattress out there with its unique 4-layer design + side layer.

OTTY Mattress Cover 

The OTTY cover is made from 97% polyester and 3% spandex. Polyester is a very durable material that is also flexible and resistant to wrinkles and shrinkage. 

The OTTY mattress cover is removable and machine washable. The cover can easily be removed by simply unzipping it. The top and bottom part of the cover can be disconnected if you wish to wash them separately. OTTY recommend washing the cover at a maximum temperature of 40ºc.  The pored cover also helps with airflow and heat dispersion.

OTTY Mattress Layers 

1. Cool Blue Gel Memory Foam (3cm)  

This top layer is a big deal, it is memory foam that has a blend of gel beads. This infusion helps with breathability and durability, as it won’t break down as quickly as foam.  Plain memory foam has slow responsiveness and is known for retaining heat. The gel infusion increases responsiveness and helps with heat dispersion.

2. Transition Foam Layer (3cm) 

This layer is self-explanatory. It ensures a smooth transition between the cooling top layer and the spring layer beneath it.  The foam used is polyfoam which is standard in the online mattress world.

3. Encapsulated Pocket Springs (14cm)    

The full sized pocket spring layer is what sets this mattress apart from its competitors.  OTTY state that the king size mattress will have 2000 pocket springs and smaller sizes will have less proportionally. 

The springs are 14cm in height which is considerably taller than the micro-coils other online mattresses offer. The OTTY mattress is perfect for those individuals looking for more bounce in a mattress. 

Encapsulated means the pocket springs are boxed in by support foam. The downside to pocket springs is the tendency to have a roll-off nature but by boxing them in this mitigates the effect and adds extra support on the sides.

4. Base Layer (4cm) 

This is the final layer which offers a base for the spring layer to sit on. This ensures the springs are not placed directly on the surface but also protected from beneath.

5. Side Layer (17cm) 

Finally, we have the side layer which is very unique, this keeps all the layers together and ensures enough edge support when you get out of bed or for those who like sleeping closer to the circumference of the mattress.

How Thick Is The OTTY Mattress?

The OTTY Hybrid mattress has a total thickness of 25cm, this is the perfect depth for most bed frames. The mattress can also hold a maximum weight of 22 stone or 138kg per person, this is based on two people sleeping on the bed.  

OTTY Mattress Firmness 

In this OTTY mattress review, we score it a 7 out of 10 on our firmness scale. The firmness is no surprise, with its tall sturdy pocket springs, you will get a firmer mattress.

OTTY Firmness 7/10

The OTTY mattress has a unique firmness feel, it is not a hard feeling mattress but rather a push back feeling mattress. We would recommend this mattress for those looking for a medium to firm mattress. 

OTTY Mattress Design

Most of the online mattresses we have reviewed have the common grey, white and blue colour scheme. The only explanation is that the brands wanted to go for a neutral look that appeals to the majority of sleepers in the UK. 

We have reviewed a few mattresses here in the UK and it’s always a pleasure to see a brand move away from the industry standard, thanks OTTY for the hint of green.
