I stumbled across your comprehensive website when researching mattresses! My husband and I bought a Dreams mattress -Harrison-pocket sprung which we found very comfortable to start with, and my husband still does, however it has dipped on either side in a matter of months and we are now being allowed to swap it for another or one to the value of £499. I hate having a hill in the middle and am getting back ache. It is a superking. I am petite and around 7.5/ 8 stone and my husband 6 foot and 11.5/12 stone. We are really not sure what to do because we don’t want to get the same mattress again and experience the same problem again. Prior to this we had a connoisseur memory foam topped mattress from dreams which also did the same and was swapped for the Harrison pocket sprung we now have! Any advice on a dreams mattress that would suit us would be greatly appreciated as I think we will be limited to buying another dreams mattress? I prefer a firm feel and do get a bad neck and back, but I have read in your threads that I should be on a soft one if I have back problems.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
I am unable to recommend a suitable replacement from their ranges. When looking to buy a new mattress there are certain questions you should ask yourself to help with your decision, please read the following article here
Having said that, if you have experienced a similar problem with a totally different mattress (memory foam), it could well be a problem associated with the base upon which the mattress is sat.
Secondly, for your body weights you ought to be looking at a soft (for you) medium (your husband) split in the tension of the mattress, anything firmer than soft for you is likely to aggravate any back issue you have.
