Q: I would like to know if you still manufacture a Rest Assured Beaulieu Mattress? I slept on this mattress at a holiday cottage and found it to be very comfortable. Thanks Question from Robinson

A:

It is several years since we made this type of mattress and no longer make an equivalent of it.  We now use the pocket spring system in all our mattresses, rather than the bonnel springs we used in the Beaulieu mattress.

It may be that if you did find this mattress particularly comfortable it is time to change your mattress at home. 

Key things to think about when you are buying are support, comfort and size.  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.
