Hi Nancy,


Thank you for your enquiry. With your particular body weight, you ought to be looking at a medium spring tension to give you the correct level of support.

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


As you sleep on your side you should look at softer upholstery layers.  We would not advise anything too firm in the comfort layers as this can cause pressure pains in the shoulders, hips and knees.
