Q : Can you tell me how firm the Holbein King size mattress is
which I have seen in Costco?


A : Key things to think about when you are buying are support,
comfort and size. Most beds are available in firm, medium and soft
ratings but these labels can vary from brand to brand. Comfort is
very subjective. There are no universal standards of firmness in
common usage in the UK. Because of this we don't give our beds a
firmness rating like some manufacturers. Your main aim is to
achieve good "posture" in bed. Too soft and your body will slouch -
often leading to back pain - and too firm and you will cause
discomfort at pressure points such as your hips and shoulder.
Ideally the mattress should mould to the shape of your body while
remaining supportive. When you lie on your side your spine should
be horizontal and you should be able to turn easily.
