In this Cool Blue memory foam mattress review, we’ll look into the cheapest cooling memory foam mattress in the UK offered by Bed Busters UK.
Cool Blue is a hybrid mattress that British Vita develops. British Vita or Vita UK is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of carpets, upholstery, wood, and home essentials.
Let’s dive in.
Materials and Construction
The cool blue memory foam mattress is technically a hybrid mattress with a substantial 25-cm deep bed constructed with layers to provide a cooling, comfortable, and well-supported sleep.
- The top layer is a PU-based cool blue memory foam, a special type of cooling memory foam that retains less heat than regular memory foam in the market. It provides excellent body contouring, spinal alignment and is even antimicrobial.
- A layer of 13.5 open coil bonnet springs is added for an extra layer of support. The bonnet springs not only facilitate the flow of air throughout the bed but also make the sleeping surface more adaptive to the body and reinforce the durability of the bed.
- The construction is fully compliant with all UK fire regulations.
The mattress is bundled up in a four-way stretchy fabric. This fabric makes it easier to fit the cover back into the mattress after washing. Moreover, this fabric is also highly comfortable and soft to the touch. It is a highly durable material and can withstand wear and tears, lengthening the lifespan of your bed.
The top is quilted in a cool wave sleep pattern. This adds another layer of comfort, style, and luxury to the sleeping surface. On top of that, quilting also helps in allowing the bed to flex under your body for additional support. It is made of breathable and hypoallergenic fabric, working in synergy with the cooling foam layers.
When cleaning the mattress, take note that the cover is not removable. However, because of its hypoallergenic and breathable property, it keeps fresh for your needs all year long. It is also not advisable to wash, tumble dry, or bleach the cover, which may damage the product.
Comfort & Support
The cool blue memory foam mattress is rated with a medium to firm firmness rating. This makes it suitable for most back sleepers and those who suffer from back pains and need an additional level of back support. While primarily marketed as a memory foam mattress because of its memory foam and pocket spring layers, it can provide the best of both worlds.
Firstly, it feels incredibly supportive. It can provide substantial support to the body, keeping the spine aligned correctly in any sleeping position. Thanks to the PU-based memory foam, it can also provide superior pressure relief, taking off any tension buildup in the joints. This keeps the body pain-free and rejuvenated in the morning.
Past customers have also remarked on how cosy it feels because of the substantial amount of sinkage that the memory foam layer allows. This leeway hugs your body to the bed, allowing for more personalised support and comfort. Combine this with the smooth to the touch top layer, and you have a comfortable mattress to sleep on.
The best thing about this mattress is that the memory foam layers are specially designed to be cooling. This is to counter the common complaints most people have against memory foam—which is that it can get humid and stuffy. The mattress feels very breathable and less stuffy than other memory foam mattresses. This makes the cool blue memory foam mattress suitable for hot sleepers.
Moreover, because it is made of high-quality memory foam, it provides excellent motion isolation. This makes it a perfect bed for those who sleep with their partners or pets. Thanks to the pocket spring layers and quilted cover, it also provides a good amount of bounce. It has good edge-to-edge support, making it perfect if you are a bit on the heavier side or share your bed with someone.

The mattress is delivered to you in a mattress-in-a-box rolled form. You can get it from eBay, and it comes with free delivery. You also have the choice of getting it delivered to any room of the house of your choice.

It doesn’t seem to cut corners, as it has a spring system, cooling memory foam, and a quilted top that’s hypoallergenic.
To top it off, it’s made in the UK by Sleep Factory LTD and sold directly from the manufacturer in West Yorkshire. The Cool blue memory foam might be worthy of consideration.
However, the downsides are that it does have a 1 year warranty, unlike many bed in a box brands that offer 10 years. Yet, for the price, it does seem a bargain.
