I am looking for a superking mattress.

12th February 2019

I am 5ft 1. 8 1/2 st husband is 6ft, 14 st. We are both front/side sleepers. Currently have an ergoflex memory foam mattress and both are overheating and I am waking frequently with lower back pain when I sleep on my front. Was going to try one of the bed in a box mattresses but came across your website and am now considering a more traditional pocket sprung mattress. What would you recommend from your range?

Hi Siwan,
Thank you for your question.
The body weights you have provided dictate that you will need to opt for a dual tension of Soft and Medium.

Spring TensionWire diameterWeight Range
Soft1.2mmUpto 8 stone
Medium1.4mm8-16 stone
Firm1.6mm16 stone plus
Extra Firm / Orthopaedic1.9mm20 stone plus

As you are both side sleepers that experience back pain I would recommend that you look at a mattress with a medium upholstery. 
The Origins Pocket 1500 is our best selling made in the UK man made and natural fibre mattress. Offering a quality 1500 pocket-spring unit and layers of fillings for a medium overall feeling. Unbeatable value given its quality. The Origins Pocket range should be the most you pay for a polyester based mattress. If this falls within your maximum budget you can rest assured that there is not much more out there that compares. £620 for a King Size.
