Expert review

The Ikea Hövåg (202.587.63) mattress is one of the cheapest pocket-sprung mattresses we've tested. Can you really get a decent double mattress, with long-lasting support for your spine, at this price? We've put this affordable mattress through a series of tough tests to see how supportive it is when new, and after our durability tests. Read our full review below to find out whether this Ikea mattress can compete with models that cost five times more.
