Hi i am a big man 20 stone. I need double mattress on a slat base. I tend to sleep on my side most of the time. What can you suggest.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your question.

We would need some further information in order to ensure you’re matched with the right mattress.

Our Resilience range is designed for users of an above average body weight.

However, a Firm spring tension would cover someone at your weight on a traditional pocket sprung unit. We would need to know how you prefer your mattress to feel in it’s top upholstery (also referred to as the comfort layers). All of our Pocket Sprung mattresses have very different feels ranging from a soft sink in sensation to more of a firm feel.

Our pocket sprung ranges (Origins and Artisan) can go on to a slatted bed base as long as the gaps are no bigger than 3″. If they are bigger than this then we simply advise placing some sheets of MDF or ply wood over them.

If you would like to discuss this further then please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0161 437 4419.

Kind Regards, Lee.
