Which mattress for sore hips?

Mrs Gillian Henderson asked 16th October 2018

Hi,.
I have arthritis in both hips and although it is not severe I do wake every morning and sometimes during the night with painful hips and back.
A new mattress is well overdue and I am now confused as to what is the best type for my needs.
I am 5 ft 9 and 11 stone and my husband is 6ft and 12 and a half stone.

Hi Gillian, 
 
Thanks for your question. 
 
At your body weights you would both be matched with a Medium spring tension to get the right level of support;
 

BodyweightSpring tension
Upto 8 Stone / 50kgSoft
8-16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm

 
With arthritis of any severity you generally want some sort of pressure relief. 
 
Have a look at our Artisan Naturals, which has a medium upholstery providing a slight sink in sensation into the top layer.
 
Alternatively, have a look at our Artisan Luxury, which has our softest upholstery giving that luxurious sink in sensation in that top layer. 
 

 
I hope this helps but if you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 0161 437 4419.
 
Kind Regards, Lee.
