Innerspring mattresses transfer a lot of motion form one side of the bed to the other, as the entire bed shares the same spring system... Pocket spring mattresses may still transfer motion a bit, but much less than a traditional innerspring mattress does. This makes for an easier night's rest for both partners.
Pressure points and comfort
One way pocket spring and innerspring mattresses differ is how they respond to pressure points. Traditional innerspring mattress may be durable, but one thing many people complain about is pain from pressure points. Weight bearing areas like the hips or shoulders may dig into the springs as the person sleeps, causing pain as the skin feels the pressure of the spring.
Pocket spring mattresses respond better to pressure points. Because each spring is wrapped on its own, each spring can move with the shape and pressure it feels. This creates more relief, and spreads out the pressure from these troublesome points to more than one spring. This makes for a more comfortable sleeping experience.
Another difference between them is cost. There is a reason innerspring mattresses have been the go to for all these years – they are cheaper and more durable than many other mattress types. Yet if you go too cheap, you may notice that the foam that lines these mattresses is cheaper as well. This can make for a very uncomfortable experience and a lot of wasted money.
While pocket spring mattresses do tend to be more expensive than innerspring mattresses, it is important to make sure the added cost goes towards quality materials. Like innerspring mattresses, cheap foam on top of a pocket spring mattress can translate to an uncomfortable sleeping experience very quickly.
Innerspring mattresses transfer a lot of motion form one side of the bed to the other, as the entire bed shares the same spring system. This may not be the best option for couples or light sleepers.
