Tension and comfort

keithjhall asked 1st March 2018

My wife is nine and a half stones five feet four and a half inches. I am almost twelve stone and five feet seven inches. We would like a mattress to suit us both. We are looking at the artisan bespoke 004, can you give us some advice please

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.

BodyweightSpring tension
Upto 11 Stone / 69kgSoft
11-16 Stone / 69-101kgMedium
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm

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.

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.

I hope this has answered your questions fully but if you do have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0161 945 3757.  Our office hours are 8 am – 8 pm Monday to Friday and 10 am – 4 pm Saturday and Sunday.

Kind Regards,

Michaela
