Thanks for your question.
At your body weights we would match you both with a Medium spring tension to get the right level of support;
|Upto 8 Stone / 50kg||Soft
|8-16 Stone / 50-101kg||Medium
|16 Stone / 101kg Upwards||Firm
Every pocket sprung mattress has 2 elements to it; The spring where the tension is determined by your body weight and the fillings that sit atop those springs which in turn provides the “comfort layer” as these are what you are in direct contact with.
Sleeping positions do factor into the choice of mattress; Side sleepers generally need to avoid anything too firm in the top layers otherwise this will lead to pressure point pains in your shoulders, hips and knees. On the flip side of this, front sleepers need to avoid anything too soft in the top layers otherwise this will lead to an unnatural arch in your back.
I’d advise here to go for something more medium feeling in the comfort layers so it doesn’t alienate anybody either way. Have a look at our Artisan Naturals
or Artisan Bespoke 004
. Both have that medium feel giving a slight sink but not too much. The main difference here is that the Bespoke 004 will be ever so slightly softer and has a full 100% natural fillings as opposed to the 85% in the Naturals.
Your existing solid base will be fine for use with either model; It will simply give the mattresses a slightly firmer feel overall.
I hope this has answered your questions fully but if you do have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 0161 437 4419.
Kind Regards, Lee.
