Good Morning Keith,
Thank you for your question on our website.
At your body weights we would match you both to a Medium spring tension. Spring tension is determined solely by body weight. Your wife is borderline between a soft or medium spring so if she wants something with a bit more give she could choose a soft. This can be achieved with either a duel spring mattress or the zip and link option. This option is also advantageous for larger mattresses especially if there could be problems with access to your property.
|Upto 8 Stone / 50kg||Soft
|8-16 Stone / 50-101kg||Medium
|16 Stone / 101kg Upwards||Firm
The Artisan Bespoke 004 is very much a true medium feeling model in the top layer; This will give a slight sink but not too much. This also has the benefit of having 100% natural fillings in the construction giving a cool sleep surface.
Our closest comparison: Artisan Bespoke 003
Experience pure comfort from £2010
Anyone who is a side sleeper should avoid anything too firm in the top layers (as this can cause pressure pains in the shoulders, hips and knees) so a medium will be absolutely fine.
