These are some of the common bases used with our mattresses:
(flat top, can include divans)
(evenly spaced boards)
Sprung divan or box spring
(frame with springs set in)
Any supportive bed base — including adjustable — is suitable, as long as that's its dedicated purpose. The Hybrid Mattress is at its best on a sprung or rigid divan or slatted bed frame.
If you have a slatted base, quickly whip out the tape measure to check the slats aren't more than three inches apart.
Think of it as the 'no flipping way'. You don't have to turn it (phew), but rotating your mattress regularly is one of the very few conditions of your ten year warranty. Take it for a 180 degree spin on the base once a month for the first 3 months, then every 3-6 months for the rest of its life.
If you go by generic mattress ratings, we call ours 'medium-firm'. But we don't think that's very helpful, as it doesn't account for the unique design of the Simba Hybrid® Mattress, developed using over 70 prototypes and tested against data from ten million sleepers' body profiles, making up 180 million profile points. We're confident ours is perfect for 95% of sleepers, and thousands of five-star reviews
suggest we're right.
We're not medical professionals, and we can't judge what's right for your back. All we can say is that we've received huge amounts of positive feedback
from sleepers who tell they've suffered from aches and pains and that they feel that their Simba Mattress has helped them to finally achieve a great night’s sleep.
One of the innovations that we've included is our super light comfort spring layer. Our springs are lighter and finer than traditional chunky bedsprings, so you won't get that poking-in feeling. And they're made to a patented, cone-shaped design which hugs every point of the body and pivots and flexes to distribute your weight fully for pressure relief. If you think that might be what you're looking for, then remember we also offer a 200 night trial so you can really put it to the test.
