Many of the mattresses that I review are ones that I have gone to a store and tried out, other times I make a best judgement based on the specifications and reviews accumulated against products. Not in this instance however, this is my mattress and one that I have owned for the last couple of years. I have slept on it every night and can give genuine insight into suitability.
Let's start with the support layer, this layer comes in the form of 1500 firm pocket springs that mould to your every movement. They are of extremely good quality, they do not creak or grown or make any noise whatsoever, but, they are firm and depending on your body type and personal preference will determine whether this is suitable or not.
The comfort layer comes with a massive 75mm of memory foam. Did you know a large chunk of "memory foam" mattresses have as little as a 20mm layer of foam? 75mm is huge and you cannot feel any of the individual springs underneath the foam at all.
When it comes to preference, I really like this mattress both as a side sleeper and a back sleeper. However, my partner found it slightly too firm and insists a softer mattress would be more suitable for side sleeping when you have a bit of a "booty" and hourglass figure as the sinking feeling of the memory foam is slightly subdued with the firmness of the springs. Do not let any of that take away from what is a beautiful mattress that is supremely well made.
Pay for room of choice delivery over delivery to the front door because this thing is really, really heavy. My partner and I spent 20 minutes and a lot of sweat getting it up a relatively small flight of stairs, pay the extra few quid and let someone else handle it.
How does it feel?
