Is the Igel pegasus gold a good mattress?

Paul asked 23rd June 2015

I wish I’d known about you before ordering my new mattress from Bensons! However I hope, nevertheless, you will be willing to answer a cheeky question.
I chose the igel Pegasus gold, instead of which a Pure Bliss 6900 springs latex + wool + Egyptian cotton mattress has turned up.
I do not know the relative merits of each as the latter is showing as “out of stock” on their web site so it is hard for me to judge whether I should insist on getting what I ordered or keep what they sent, which does feel quite comfortable. What would you do? Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Paul,

I am unaware of the specific construction of each of the mattresses you refer to, however, what I would do is contact Bensons and ask them to forward a written specification for each of the models. You would need to know the density of latex, the GSM of upholstery and the gauge or tension of the springs they use.
Even if they no longer stock the Pure Bliss 6900, they should still be able to supply you with a specification sheet. At that point you will be in a better position to decide which is the better product. You can view our handmade latex mattress models here which should give you an idea of the detail you should expect to be given on the Bensons mattresses.
If you need any further assistance after receipt of the specifications, please call our office. Kind regards Mike.
