The Best Zip and Link Mattresses in 2023

collaborative guest post

Zip & link beds are two small single or single beds which can be zipped together to create a larger bed, creating a modular sleeping space for two people.

The main benefit of zip & link beds is their flexibility, allowing you to easily switch between multiple sleeping options depending on the circumstances, such as twin beds or a king bed, making them ideal for guest rooms.

As with all beds, comfort levels are determined by the mattress, and there are hundreds of options out there offering a great night’s sleep.

When choosing a mattress for a zip & link bed, remember that two small single mattresses make a king-size bed, while two singles make a super king bed.

You should also consider the following:

  • The mattress’s technology (e.g., hybrid).

  • Motion isolation technology to reduce partner disturbance.

  • Thickness and quality of comfort layers.

  • Type and quality of springs.

  • High-quality fabrics and outer covers.

  • Overall value for money.

This article reveals the best zip & link mattresses in 2023.

Let’s jump in!

Giltedge Beds Sussex

  • Price: £379.

  • Firmness: Medium firm.

The Giltedge Beds Sussex (pictured above) is our most affordable zip and link mattress, comprising two 25cm mattresses with open coils and synthetic fibre comfort layers. It offers excellent support for back sleepers and people over 200 lbs.

We love the soft, tufted outer cover and firm edge-to-edge support, which lets you use the entire mattress without feeling like you’ll roll off.

Giltedge Beds Topaz

  • Firmness: Medium.

Ideal for side sleepers and back sleepers, the Giltedge Beds Topaz combines open coil springs with memory foam for deep pressure relief. The Bonnell springs deliver excellent motion isolation, ensuring minimal partner disturbance.

The Giltedge Topaz is more forgiving than the Sussex, making it an excellent choice for grandchildren or people with joint pain.

Giltedge Beds Chatsworth
