Q: Can you please tell me the difference between The Ravello 1400 pocket latex ortho mattress and the Modena 1400 pocket latex ortho mattress. Question from Anne Franks


These mattresses were very similar, but we no longer manufacturer either of them.  Unfortunately we do not have a direct equivalent in our current range.  We have either a 1400 Latex or a 1400 Ortho.

Our recommendation would be that you visit your local stockist and try each of these beds to see which suits your needs best.  Your main aim is to achieve good "posture" in bed.  Too soft and your body will slouch - often leading to back pain - and too firm and you will cause discomfort at pressure points such as your hips and shoulder.  Ideally the mattress should mould to the shape of your body while remaining supportive.  When you lie on your side your spine should be horizontal and you should be able to turn easily.
