Good Morning Andros,


Thank you for your question.


With that substantial weight difference you would need a dual spring tension; One half would need to be Firm for the 25 stone user and the other half would need to be Medium for the 10 stone user.


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


The spring is what provides support from within the mattress itself.


After that is established then it becomes about the top upholstery layers also known as the comfort layers and how you want those to feel.


At the weights provided I would recommend either our Artisan Naturals or our Artisan Bespoke 004 on a Medium/Firm spring.


The Artisan Naturals model is the true medium feel in the top layers whereas the Bespoke 004 is ever so slightly softer.



Our Resilience range is designed for users with a body weight of 18 stone upwards. However, for the user at 10 stone this will be completely unsuitable as it will feel extremely firm.


I hope that this has answered your question fully but if you do have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0161 437 4419.


Kind Regards, Lee.
