- It's slightly lighter in weight than some, but a superking size is still a minimum of a two-man lift. Side handles to help with rotating.
- The most uncomfortable mattress I have ever owned. We've been using it for a month now, on a sprung slatted base, and I get up in the morning with pain and stiffness the full length of my back, my hips and shoulders that lasts all day. I'm exhausted from constantly waking in pain during the night. I like a firm, supportive mattress and this is classed as medium firm and described as good for backs. Our memory foam mattress made me overheat at nights and I felt a pocket sprung mattress would be cooler. This mattress is very bouncy because of the springs but feels very lumpy and hard to lie on so I don't know if that means it's too hard or too soft. The hard lumps (which I guess might be the springs) dig into every pressure point for me. There is no roll-together but the sides are not as well supported as I expected and I nearly rolled off the edge on the first night but have learned to stay back from the edge and avoid sitting on it. Lying on my side causes pain in my hips and shoulders but lying on my back causes me back pain. Oddly, it can sometimes get a little too warm during the night, but that might just be me. Our memory foam mattress may have made me too hot, but I never woke in pain and it proved helpful for my husband's vertebrae degeneration, even though he found it quite firm. I tried many spring mattresses in stores and, in my opinion, the most comfortable were Rest Assured and Sealy but the delivery times were several weeks and we needed one right away so we had to buy online. I couldn't get any of the models, I had tried and liked, on a faster delivery online but I thought we'd be ok if it was one of those two brands and a model that got good reviews. This mattress however is an expensive mistake for us as it will need to be replaced. I have considered a gel mattress topper but I'm worried that's just more money lost if it doesn't solve the problem. I'd only buy a mattress on line again if it came with a money-back trial period or was a model I had already tried and knew to be comfortable.
