Sorry to hear you’re having such a nightmare with your Bensons bed. It’s hard to recommend any direct alternative from Bensons given all our mattresses are hand made and primarily natural fibres rather than synthetic. Bensons also don’t give enough information about the materials used to allow us to compare properly.
Reading the description I see that there is no depth of I-Gel given which also makes a comparison frustratingly impossible.
However, have a look at our Artisan Naturals mattress which comes in a variety of spring tensions and has a massive 85% of natural fibres. Far higher quality than any synthetic foam mattress.

It can take a good 4-5 weeks before your body adjusts to the feel of a new mattress, and sometimes people do experience aches and pains during this time, it is like not doing any exercise for a long time, and then you do a day at the gym, and you can ache. It is the same with a new mattress, if you are suddenly being supported in places that your old mattress wasn’t supporting, then the adjustment will create those aches.

Alternatively we would consider the usage of toppers to give you additional elements of comfort which in turn should reduce your aches and pains, whilst your mattress settles below.
Try this Laygel mattress topper, which is the softest topper we create, and see what difference that makes to the mattress.
