Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions.  If you can't find what you're looking for please visit ask us to submit a question to one of our bed experts.

Q: Do you make a pocket sprung mattress with a latex layer that has a VERY FIRM feel, equivalent to the Dreams firmness rating number 1? Question from Kamran

A:

Most beds are available in firm, medium and soft ratings but these labels can vary from brand to brand.  Comfort is very subjective.  There are no universal standards of firmness in common usage in the UK.    Because of this we don't give our beds a firmness rating like some manufacturers.

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.

For extra firm beds in our range you need to try our Ortho products.  The term 'orthopaedic' generally just means an extra firm bed; it is not based on any medical or other common standard, nor does it mean the bed has been professionally assessed or recommended. 

However, if you particularly like the feel of latex then try those with the highest spring count as these will have the most firm feel.
