After trying loads of mattress's at john lewis and fenwick's and preferring the pocket sprung mattress's with a pillowtop. Decided on the sealy nostromo posturepedic pocket 1400 latex mattress after reading loads of reviews. Can't fault it, very comfortable for us, might be a tad firm for some, certainly more firm than medium in my opinion. Don't worry about the smell, barely noticeable, gone within a few days. Quality is fantastic.
