Innerspring vs Wrapped Coils: Which is Best for Me?

Considering an innerspring mattress but don’t know if it’s right for you? This blog post breaks down the differences between innerspring mattresses vs individually-wrapped coil mattresses.

Is one better than the other? Let’s find out.

What is an innerspring mattress?

An innerspring mattress is a mattress containing metal coil springs and some sort of comfort layer. This comfort layer could be natural latex, memory foam, polyurethane foam, or even wool.

Innerspring mattresses tend to be less expensive than foam mattresses.

What is an individually-wrapped coil mattress?

An individually-wrapped coil mattress is a great option for those looking for less motion transfer but still like that gentle “bounce” of a traditional coil mattress.

A wrapped coil mattress also contains a similar type of comfort layer as an innerspring mattress.

But why does a wrapped coil mattress have less motion transfer? Let’s break down these materials.

Individually-Wrapped Springs

These coil springs are individually encased rather than interlocked. The coils contour to your body’s curves, adding unparalleled responsiveness when compared to lower-end spring mattresses.

It is this simple difference that significantly decreases motion transfer and improves overall comfort.


Innersprings are definitely more affordable but that comes at a cost.

Bonnell springs are interconnected so if you share a bed with your partner, you will most likely feel them move during the night, which could interrupt your sleep.

Wrapped Coils vs Innersprings: Which is right for me?

If motion transfer is not a concern of yours and you wish to have the most economical mattress possible, then an innerspring mattress may be a good option.

However, if you want a higher quality mattress that offers pressure point relief and responsiveness, we recommend individually-wrapped coils.

Savvy Rest offers two wrapped coil mattresses that are completely customizable, meaning you can choose the type of natural latex (Dunlop or Talalay), the latex density (Soft, Medium, or Firm), and the coils density (Medium or Firm).

Not only are you getting a higher quality natural mattress, but you are also getting the benefit of controlling the overall feel of the mattress, giving you a truly comfortable experience.

Each side of the mattress can also differ for Queen, King, and CA King sizes.

The SerenitySpring is our most wrapped coil mattress with a height of 12 inches.

The TranquilitySpring is our lower-profile option with a height of 8 inches.

Happy shopping!
