My wife and I are both in our 60’s. my wife has a bad back and I have bad knees and shoulders. We have always had dunlopillo mattresses. I am severely asthmatic. We have just taken delivery of a new Tempur bed with a hard top ottoman base. We bought the top of the range mattress which is described as soft. I have two problems. It’s not soft and I have an asthma attack every time I get in it.
As we have got older we have found the beds feeling firmer. I am desperate to buy a bed that will give us a good nights sleep and one which doesn’t make us feel old every morning when we get up
I am 5’9″ and 12 stone
My wife is 5’0″ and about 9 stone. We are both very fit and live an active lifestyle
The Origins range, being our starter range, are constructed from man made, synthetic fibres and materials whereas the Artisan range is constructed from natural fibres and materials.
I would recommend our Origins Pocket 1500, Artisan 1500 and Artisan Naturals models. All 3 of these models are very medium feeling in the comfort layers in their respective ranges; I.e, not too soft or too firm. All of these mattresses will give you the correct level of support both within the mattress spring itself and the comfort layer.
In regards to the base, all 3 of these mattresses are fine to go on to a solid top base. It just means that the mattresses will feel slightly firmer due to sitting on top of a solid surface.
I hope this has answered all of your questions fully but if you do have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0161 945 3757.
