Good Morning Jane, 
 
Thank you for your question. https://johnryanbydesign.co.uk/understanding-beds/mattress-bases-explained/
 
At 15 stone we would match you both to a Medium spring tension; The spring is what gives support from inside the mattress itself. 
 
Our Artisan range is constructed from natural fibres and materials and as such come in feeling generally cooler overall. If heat is an issue then this is the range to look at. 
 
Given that you advise you prefer a medium feel I would guide you to our Artisan Naturals model. This model is constructed from 85% natural fibres and is the true medium feeling mattress in it’s comfort layers; I.e, not too soft nor too firm. The comfort layers are the top layers that you sleep on top of on top of the springs. 
 
Alternatively you could also look at our Artisan Bespoke 004; This is overall a medium feel in that top layer but is slightly softer than the Naturals. This model also has the benefit of being constructed from 100% natural fibres so will feel ever so slightly cooler as well. 
 
If you do have a mattress that is too firm in the top layers then it will certainly cause and exacerbate any existing pains. 
 
This mattress is absolutely fine to go on to a slatted base; We just advise that a solid base will firm up the overall feel of the mattress. 
 
I hope that this has answered your questions fully but if you do have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0161 945 3757.
 
Kind Regards, Lee.
