In this post we cover the best innerspring mattresses to buy in a full size option. With the rising popularity of online mattresses, there are now hundreds of companies to choose from and it can be confusing deciding which option, budget and materials are right for you and your specific needs. We have listed our favorite picks in each category to help you make an informed decision. Innerspring mattresses or “pocketed coil” mattresses are the most common style of mattress and will give customers the “bounce” and support that they may be used to in a mattress, while a memory foam or all foam mattress will give a different feel. All of the mattresses on this list offer a full size option, which is a great way to save space and money for customers who don’t need the additional length or width of a queen or king. 

What is a full size innerspring mattress?

A full size innerspring mattress is a mattress that measures 54″ wide by 75″ long and utilizes innersprings as its support system. Innersprings or Pocketed coils are metal springs that compress in order to provide support and pressure relief to sleepers. Innerspring mattresses are the most commonly purchased mattresses and are what most people think of when they think of a traditional mattress. 

Benefits of an innerspring mattress

Partner Disturbance: Seeing as each spring works individually, pocketed coil mattresses are great at isolating motion throughout the mattress. This is the same concept in the mattress commercial where you see the woman jumping on the mattress with a glass of wine and the glass of wine doesn’t spill. Motion transfer is great for couples who don’t want to disturb each other when getting up to go to the bathroom, moving during sleep or if one gets up earlier than the other. 

Support: Pocketed coils work individually to support each section of your body. This means the springs under your hips can be providing different pressure than those under your legs. Pocketed coils are able to conform to the natural curves of your body and provide superior spinal alignment and pressure relief to other mattresses on the market. 

Long lasting durability: Pocketed coils are each incased in their own protective fabric and most quality pocketed coil systems (all are not created equal) will last longer than other mattresses on the market. 

Breathability and cooling benefits: Mattresses with pocketed coils have a lot of open air space in the core of the mattress allowing for airflow throughout your bed and ultimately breathability and a cooler sleeping environment for the sleeper. 

How long does an innerspring mattress last?

 An innerspring mattress will generally last 8-10 years and even longer if you opt for a double sided option. Quality innerspring mattresses will generally last longer than all foam mattresses, due to the plain fact that they are made of steel and take a longer time to break down. The first part of an innerspring mattress to break down will generally be the foam layers on top. 

Who is a full size mattress right for?

A full size mattress is generally best for a single person who isn’t taller than 6 feet. You can fit a coup;le on a full size mattress but it may be slightly snug. We recommend a queen or king size mattress for a couple if you can fit it in your room. Being that a full size mattress is 75″ long it can be too short for anyone 6′ or taller, however, if you are shorter than 6′ a full size mattress can be a great way to save some money and space within your bedroom. 

What foundation to use with an innerspring mattress?

Innerspring mattresses can be put on just about any foundation on the market. From bed slats, to box springs, platform beds or adjustable bases. Most of the innerspring mattresses today are made with pocketed coils and can work with an adjustable base but it is important to double check on the manufacturers website to be sure.
