Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket Mattress Firmness
This Silentnight mattress comes in a medium-firm firmness rating, meaning that it's a little bit more on the firmer side but without losing that comfortably soft surface to rest on. Medium-firm mattresses are great for people who need that bit of extra support due to lower back problems or because of their sleeping position. Front-sleepers and back-sleepers can benefit from a medium-firm mattress as they can better support the sleeper's mid-section from sinking too deep into the mattress, pulling their spine out of alignment.
Part of the firmness of the Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket mattress comes from the layer of springs that comes with zoned parts, offering extra support for your hip, neck and shoulders.

Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket Mattress Cover
Starting with the finishing touches to the Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket mattress, the outside cover is a soft-touch knitted cover that provides a comfortable surface to rest on. The fillings below have been hand-tufted into place, giving the mattress a more plush feel when laying down on it.
The cover is breathable and can help facilitate airflow through the mattress so that you don't feel too hot during the night. It is also hypoallergenic as it has been treated with PuroTex which can help reduce moisture and combat dust mites, making this a suitable mattress option for those who have allergies or asthma.
Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket Mattress Layers
- At the core of the Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket mattress sits a layer of Mirapocket springs. Each spring is individually encased in its own pocket and responds to the sleeper's body movements and distributing the weight evenly. The spring layer is zoned to allow for better spinal alignment, support and pressure relief to promote a healthier sleep.
- The comfort layer of this mattress is filled with the previously mentioned Eco Comfort fibres which are 100% sustainable. As shown in the video below, the fillings are made from recycled plastic bottles that have been saved from ending up in the ocean and ground into fine flakes that then are molten and spun into micro fibers that finally are streteched into the Silentnight Eco Comfort fibres.
These fillings are breathable and further promotes the airflow through the mattress, allowing for a fresh and comfortable sleep, and are found in many of the Silentnight mattresses available on the market.
- A protective layer helps distribute the pressure from the springs evenly across the mattress surface, helping it to stay in good shape for a longer time.
How Thick Is The Silentnight Sofia 1200 Mirapocket Mattress?
This mattress measures approximately 28 centimetres deep thanks to its full-sized springs and generous layers of fillings. A thicker mattress can sometimes provide a more luxurious feeling, especially when combined with a fluffy mattress topper, so this could be a good option for those looking for some additional height to their bed.
