Which mattress should we purchase to go with a M&S classic sprung 2+2 drawer divan and button headboard?

Jane Price-Hunt asked 5th October 2017

We are 5’6″ and 5’10” and weigh 8 stone and 11 stone respectively. We are looking for a new mattress as our memory foam mattress is now 10 years old. We sleep well on this slatted bed but we both suffer from occasional lower back pain and I currently have a slipped disc, so need good support. We both sleep on our sides.

We have seen an M&S button headboard in grey that we both like, which can be purchased with a sprung top divan with 2+2 drawers. Without trying your mattresses, which would you recommend? I believe you also offer a return policy if we don’t get on with the mattress?

I look forward to your response,

Good Morning Jane, 
Thank you for your question. 
This really depends on what type of mattress you are looking for; Our traditional pocket sprung mattresses can go on to a slatted bed base as long as the gaps are no bigger than 3″. If the gaps are bigger than this then we simply advise to place some sheets of MDF or ply wood over the base. 
Our Fusion and Hybrid ranges need to go on to a solid top base as both materials will attempt to settle in any sized gap. 
For a pocket sprung mattress you would be matched to a dual spring tension of one half soft and one half medium.
You can do a dual spring tension in the one unit in our Artisan range but for the Origins range you would need to do this via Zip and Link. 
Anyone suffering back pain needs to avoid any sort of mattress that is too firm in it’s top layers. As such we’d usually advise that you need something more medium feeling but we would need an indication of what type of mattress you are looking for. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0161 945 3757 to discuss this further. 
Kind Regards, Lee.
