Q: We have a Rest Assured mattress, 6'-3" x 4'-6" x 8". No 1. Firmness rating 8, which has given us excellent service. Can you please give us the modern equivalent so that we can buy a new one, and where near to Huddersfield should we buy it? Question from JAMES BAILEY

A:

We have changed many aspects of bed manufacturer since your last purchase and no longer grade them in the same way.  Comfort is very subjective and there are no universal standards of firmness in common usage in the UK.

Our main recommendation to you would be that you visit a couple of your nearest stockists and start to try different beds for yourself and see what you like.  There is no substitute to trying before you buy and selecting the right one for you. If you share your bed with a partner it is important that you try the bed together to ensure you are both comfortable and supported.  Don’t just sit on the edge and bounce up and down, actually lay down and stay there for ten minutes or more.  Do not be embarrassed about lying on the beds in the showroom – that is what they are there for!
