Finding the right mattress to suit your needs is the key to a good night’s rest. A quality mattress should meet the needs of your body shape and weight, and help to relieve sleeping issues too. You need to find a mattress that supports you and the needs of your partner too.

The best mattresses keep your body well supported with no discomfort or pressure on the hips, shoulders or ankles. They will also keep your spine well aligned with the rest of your body and distribute your body weight across your frame. Good Support Will Lead To Good Sleep.

See below for our mattress advice for sleeping issues.

Hot At Night:

In order to reduce nighttime sweating it’s important to know that a memory foam mattress is NOT suitable for warm sleepers, as it has insulating properties. Latex and lambswool layers are naturally cooler and will suit you better.

Cold At Night:

A Memory foam mattress moulds to the shape of your body, and with its insulating properties, is ideal for those who find themselves cold at night.

Light Sleeper:

Latex, pocket sprung and memory foam are all components that will reduce motion disturbance between partners, and provide a sound night’s rest

Mattresses For Children:

A young child may only need the simplest quality mattress, but age and needs can vary greatly.

Asthma Sufferer:

Mattresses that use a natural anti-dust mite barrier which has a positive impact on the quality of sleep of asthma sufferers.

Eczema Sufferer:

Where the bed meets the body, skin can be soothed or irritated, depending on the quality of the fabrics and fillings used. Eczema can be triggered by dust mites, so using a mattress with a natural anti-dust mite barrier will help.


Mattresses can’t cure snoring, so it’s important to provide comfort when sleeping on one’s side. Side sleepers need a softer mattress, that includes latex and memory foam.
