Sherman Mattress ‘Firm but Fair’ Review
The Sherman Mattress (‘Firm but Fair’ version) is an excellent mattress and was awarded Australia’s ‘Best Value’ Mattress in 2020. Not surprisingly, Bedbuyer considers this mattress as one of the best options on the Australian market.
All Sherman mattresses can be conveniently ordered online through the Sherman website. Delivery is free and can be delivered to most places in Australia (check delivery range here). Sherman has an excellent delivery service, and is very accommodating with days and times that suit the customer (see mattress prices and delivery times below). You can see this mattress in ‘real life’ in our video review here:
*Please note: the information in this video was current at the time of filming. Sherman still offers a free woven cloth storage bag (with each mattress purchase), but no longer issues a free mattress protector.
Unlike most mattresses that can be purchased online, the Sherman Mattress (Firm but Fair) doesn’t come compressed in a box, so you wont need to wait for it to ‘decompress’ before sleeping on it. Sherman has a special ‘white glove’ delivery service where your mattress will be placed carefully into your home, even if you have several flights of stairs (please note, Melbourne metro suburbs – ‘non-contact’ delivery only, see full details below).
An outstanding firmer feel mattress that offers incredible value.
On first appearance, the Sherman Mattress (Firm but Fair) has a distinct modern, elegant style. As with all Sherman mattresses, the top cover is made from a mix of cotton and polyester. This layer feels soft and smooth, and gives the mattress a luxurious vibe.
This cover sits over a layer of premium foam, which offers a nice level of comfort and pressure relief. Even though it has a firm feel, it certainly doesn’t feel hard or uncomfortable. Our team rated it as a ‘medium’ feel and a 7.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest):
All Sherman mattresses use a robust pocket spring system that offers excellent support, and should accomodate people of all sizes. This support system also has a nice level of responsiveness, and is noticeably easy to change sleeping positions.
All Sherman Mattresses have a high level of craftsmanship and refinement. Edge support is sound and partner disturbance is minimal. Sherman also offers a 100 night trial period so you have the ultimate in peace of mind when you buy. It’s also worth noting that Sherman mattresses are free of any toxic chemicals and use certified foams.
The Sherman Mattress (Firm but Fair) is available in 2 sizes (king and queen) so it should suit most adult sleeping situations. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2020. This mattress also comes with a free woven cloth storage bag, perfect for future storage or transport.
The Sherman Mattress (Firm but Fair) is an outstanding firmer feel mattress that offers incredible value. It easily compares to many retail store mattresses double its price, and is well-backed with a 100 night trial period. To see all 3 options in this mattress range, click here.
