Which density is best for me?

We are the only company we know that gives you a choice – and choice can be confusing, right! Ok, if you want to really soften a hard bed – go soft.  If you have a lot of joint pain and need cushioning – go soft.  If you’re existing mattress is a touch firm and needs a bit of modifying – go medium. If your 90kg or more consider medium for the extra support you may need.  When you need to firm up a bed go firm.

What base do I need, if I buy a new mattress?
