Why is my mattress “too firm” when receiving?

A mattress is like a new pair of shoes and usually has a break in period of 30 days - 90 days. The new foam and spring materials in your mattress needs to be worn in to achieve that sweet spot of comfort.

Why is my mattress harder than it was when I tested it in the store?

Keep in mind that the mattress in the store has been there for a while and has already been broken in. They are often being tested out by a variety of customers per day, and are therefore not an exact comparison of what your bed will feel like immediately once you have purchased it.

A mattress protector is used to protect your mattress from any stains, spills or oopsies. All our mattress protectors are made to fit a standard and extra length mattress.

What type of base is best to use with a pocket spring mattress?

A solid bed base should always be paired with a pocket spring mattress. A slatted base will not support the weight of the mattress and will void the warranty.

Why is a king bed set supplied with two single bases?

A king mattress is supported by 2 single bed bases. Using two single bed bases with a king-sized mattress is a common practice recommended by many mattress manufacturers. This provides:

  • Enhanced Support: Distributing the weight evenly helps prevent sagging and ensures adequate support.
  • Improved Stability: Two bases side-by-side provide increased stability, reducing movement disturbances.
  • Customized Comfort: Allows for independent firmness levels, ideal for couples with different sleep preferences.
  • Ease of Movement: Due to South African standard door requirements, most bed manufacturers do not create standard king size bed bases as it is a solid item with no stretch. Unlike a mattress, which can be maneuvered between narrow door frames.
