The basic £60 single bed ones,

don't know about quality, as i have never bought one, but make sure you check its size before you buy: most ikea is continental sizes, which means the mattress is 2m long rather than 1.90m like most UK mattresses.

don't know about the £60 ones, but my ikea mattress was the most comfortable one i've ever had!

honneybunny is right though, it'll be too long for a standard bedframe/divan. you need an ikea bed too (or, a continental sized bed at any rate)

they're longer so you have to get the bed to match!

Crap.

i didn't think 10cm would make too much difference.....I thought I would squish it between the bedstead ends (it is for bunks).

i got a normal matress for my son's ikea bed and he has a big gap grin

I have just examined the bed. With a "normal" mattress there is a gap of 8-10cm so it sounds as though it might suit perfectly.

And I can get 2 for the same price as 1 mattress elsewhere. As long as there is not a compromise on quality.
