Hi Pauline

Thanks for your question.

Side sleepers need to avoid anything too firm in the top layers as this will simply serve to cause pressure point pains in places such as shoulders, hips and knees.
At your body weights on a traditional pocket sprung mattress we ourselves would match you both with a soft spring tension to get the right level of support;’

Upto 8 Stone / 50kgSoft
8-16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm

Given your sleeping habits, we would guide you to something more medium or soft in the top layers. Have a look at our Origins Pocket 1500, Artisan Naturals and Artisan Luxury mattresses.

The Origins range is our starter range of pocket sprung mattresses constructed with synthetic fillings and a true medium feel in the top layers giving a slight sink but not too much.

Our Artisan range is again pocket sprung mattresses but this range has natural fillings in the construction that provide a cool sleep surface. The Naturals is our true medium in the top layers and also our best selling model. The Luxury is the softest mattress that we retail giving that luxurious sink in sensation. Please see below for the full breakdown of materials of both models in the Artisan range as well as the comparison models that can be found in stores such as Furniture Village, Harrods, House of Fraser and now Prestige Beds.
