A: All Rest Assured mattresses are tested in our state of the art laboratories to accept a combined weight of 32 stone (200kg) using a roller weight mechanism. This is a British Standard test, done according to BS7397: 1991. That is not to say that our products could not withstand weights heavier than this, however the lifespan of the mattress may be shorter as a result. We often find that comfort issues are very subjective and open to personal interpretation. It would be unfair of us to suggest one model over another, as buying a mattress is as individual and personal as buying a car or a new pair of shoes. There are so many variations/numbers of mattresses we offer it woud be impossible to give any specifications without knowing the name of a specific mattress. If we could refer you to our website you will find a postcode link to your nearest retailer, that way you can go and try and see what would best suit your needs.
