Hi there,
I’m after some advice. Me and my partner are currently trialling the Simba Mattress but we’re finding it very hot. its our first memory foam mattress and we like the comfort but we are thinking of returning it.
I am around 13 stone and my partner around 9.5 stone. What would you recommend? we have a budget of around £700 and we require a kingsize mattress.

Hi Matt, 
Thanks for your question. 
memory foam is notorious for being hot as it relies on heat retention in order to adapt to your body movements. 
Natural fillings will give you the coolest sleep surface you can find; You can find these in our Artisan range of mattreses. These are traditional pocket sprung mattresses with those natural fillings. At your body weights we would match you both with a Medium spring tension to get the right level of support;

BodyweightSpring tension
Upto 16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium (1.4mm)
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm (1.6mm)
Available in Bespoke Products (Please Call)Soft (1.2mm)

However, the concern here is that our starter model; The Artisan 1500 is outside of your budget instantly. 
Alternatively, it might be worth checking our Outlet section; These are items that have been produced, used and returned to us under our 60 day love it or return it guarantee. Before they are re-sold they are graded and discounted accordingly;
B20%Will have been used by a customer and returned under the 60 night love it or return it guarantee, it may have a few marks from transit and courier handling.
C40%Will have been used by a customer and returned under the 60 night love it or return it guarantee, it will have quite a few marks and could even have a small tear, nothing detrimental to the life or use of the mattress.

We would need to know your preferred feel and sleeping habits in order to make a specific recommendation here. 
Outside of this have a look at something like our Origins Pocket 1500. This is a true medium feeling pocket sprung model giving a slight sink in the top layer but not too much. This range is constructed with synthetic fibres and we couldn’t guarantee you wouldn’t overheat here. 

I hope this helps but if you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 0161 437 4419.
Kind Regards, Lee.
