I prefer sleeping in first class rather than economy.

Single Economy Mattress
Advantages: Price. Standard size.
Disadvantages: Not very soft. Very thin.
I have been using a Single Economy Mattress on the bed in one of my spare bedrooms for the past couple of years. The mattress was bought from Mr. Sleeps Beds Limited via the Amazon website (www.amazon.co.uk). I can't remember exactly how much I paid for it, but the mattress currently costs £30.20 (including postage and packaging) and is usually dispatched within 3 weeks of ordering. I think £30.20 is a very good price for a mattress, although because it is so inexpensive and so thin, I would probably only buy it to be used by a small child or for use in a guest bedroom which someone may only sleep on for one night.
The mattress is the size of a standard size single bed and therefore it measures 90cm x 190cm and fits the frame that I bought without any problem. It weighs 25kg and so it is fairly heavy, but having said that it is really thin and this is the reason it's not something i would want to be sleeping on all of the time. The mattress itself is pink with little purple and pink hearts on it and it's an okay design.
As I said, the mattress is really quite thin and when I laid on it is didn't give me as much bounce or stability as I would generally want from a mattress. I can feel the springs in it, although the springs don't dig in, but it is still something that I'm conscious of. I have found that the comfort of the mattress has been improved significantly by the addition of a mattress topper to it as this just gives it a little more softness. Sleeping on the mattress is okay for a night or two, but any more than this and it tends to leave me with a stiff back.
As a very basic mattress this is okay - but it is basic and to be honest if I was buying a mattress again then I would opt for one that cost a little more and provided a little more comfort.
Summary: It's okay, but I probably won't buy economy again.
