The REM-fit 600 Lux Hybrid is the first memory-foam layer to incorporate zoning, which is usually reserved for the base of a mattress. This smart feature ensures an even spread of pressure across the entire mattress, no matter whether you sleep on your side, back or front.

The open-cell construction, which REM-Fit claims is 30 times more breathable than traditional memory foam, helps to reduce the amount of heat retained in the mattress – regulating your temperature while you sleep – and is complemented by a removeable thermo-regulatory cover that’s machine washable and hypoallergenic.

This product has been recommended by the Good Homes Approved test team: ‘This mattress cradles the weight of the body, providing a soft and sumptuous feel, whilst still delivering great support without the without that weird sinking feeling you can get with some memory foam mattresses.’
