Suitable mattress

Sammi Webb asked 26th October 2017


Please could you advise on the best single mattress for my weight/height (21 Stone/5ft 8) – I am looking for a standard sized single mattress that will be comfortable and support my weight.

Good afternoon Sammi.

Thank you for your enquiry.  You do not say what your preference is to how the mattress should feel.  This is determined in the upholstery layers (also known as the comfort layers). Also, we would need to know if you are a side and/or hot sleeper.  It is these factors which would determine which mattress would be preferable to yourself.

Upto 9 Stone / 57kgSoft
9-16 Stone / 57-101kgMedium

We would recommend for your body weight a firm spring tension.  This is what supports your body throughout the night.  We also have the Resilience range which are foam mattresses designed for the heavier sleeper.
