I've a bed from dreams and it's causing more problems since buying it 3yrs ago. I need a specific type of bed to help me.

12th February 2019

I have hyper lordosis, scoliosis, spondylosis and bulging of cervical and lumbar discs and I’m 17 stone in weight. I need a firm, supporting bed. My partner is 10 stone and also has scoliosis. We prefer king size. Is there any bed that can offer extreme support and comfort without bowing or sagging as my current pocket sprung orthopedic bed from dreams has been ridiculous from a few months post buying, 3yrs ago.
Before that, I had a similar type of bed, very firm and no turn. That one lasted 15yrs! So I’m hoping you can help.

Hi Helena,
Thank you for your question.
At the body weights you have provided you would need to opt for a dual spring tension of Medium and Firm for support.

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

The Artisan Bespoke is our firmest 100% natural fibre mattress providing a medium support with firmer feeling top layers for those wanting a firmer feel. It’s no use being coy about this. Our Artisan Bespoke is based quite clearly on the build quality of many of Vi Spring and Savoir models. We state quite openly that our Artisan Bespoke is “The best mattress your money can buy”. £1850 for a King Size mattress. 
The closest comparable model we can find to our Artisan Bespoke is the Vi-Spring Herald Superb. It carries a retail price of £2114 [King] [Feb 2019]. We always try as best we can to base our comparable models to about half the lowest price we can find.
