Q: My Husband is roughly 20+ stone, I am looking to find a king size new mattress I would like a memory foam one which will hold my husbands weight Question from Sheila Slate

A:

We test our beds using a 200kg roller (31.5 stones). The weight is rolled across the mattress 20,000 times to assess general durability of the mattress. However, this weight is always moving on the mattress and not left stationary.  If you combined weight exceeds this limit we would not recommend our products to you.

The mattress is the heart of your bed and the part of the purchase you should spend most time and money on. The secret of having a good night’s sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that a ‘bed’ is a mattress and a base working together, you should not consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them together.  We always recommend you buy them together because the two are designed and manufactured to compliment one another in terms of support.  Your mattress may show visible signs of wear and tear but the base will have had equal pressure and strain – it just doesn’t show quite so clearly.  Another point to watch is making sure the dimensions of any base and mattress separately sourced are compatible; two kings might not be quite the same size!
