Q: How firm are your pocket latex mattresses? how do they compare to the Capri mattress? Question from Derek Eldridge

A:

The Capri mattress is exclusive to Dreams, probably the nearest equivalent is the Puccini.  A pocket latex microquilted mattress with 1400 spring count.

Comfort is very subjective.  There are no universal standards of firmness in common usage in the UK.  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.
