Recommended UK mattress alternatives
Even though the IKEA Morgedal is available at an exceptionally low price, it simply cannot compare with the higher-quality models available.
While these are often more expensive, we have selected the best high-quality mattresses available at the lowest prices as alternatives to IKEA Hövåg mattress.
These offer you superior comfort, support, stability, and customer service.
We highly recommend that you choose one of these models instead. After all, you'd expect to keep your mattress for the next ten years. Make sure that it is the best you can find.
IKEA Morgedal firmness
The IKEA Morgedal is an incredibly firm mattress, which we've placed at 9 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 the firmest.
This is one of the firmest mattresses we have ever tested.
The IKEA Morgedal lacks elasticity and so creates uncomfortable pressure points.
Our test sleepers really felt that this mattress did not distribute pressure well and that it did not adapt well to the body at all.
We have become quite used to mattresses adapting well, so this was definitely unusual.
That said, the mattress may be suitable for heavier people.
Even those with a bodyweight of over 100 kg would not sink too deeply into the IKEA Morgedal and will benefit from good support.
The same problem with pressure points, however, would still exist, which can cause shoulder and neck pains.
If you do sleep on the IKEA Morgedal, then sleeping on your stomach would be the best bet.
The firmness of the mattress is due to the polyether foam, which is normally reserved for the lower layers of mattresses to help with stability and lifespan.
Even though this mattress will definitely last a long time, you should look elsewhere if you're looking for comfort.

Should you buy the IKEA Morgedal?
The IKEA Morgedal is too firm and of low quality.
It certainly has the advantage of being inexpensive but its comfort is severely limited.
That said, it may be suitable for heavier people, particularly if they're stomach sleepers, as they'll find the mattress gives them sufficient support and they won't sink in too deeply.
