Q & As


John Lewis The Basics Memory Mattress, Double 4.4 5 25 25
Wonderful I have had this mattress a week now and both my wife and I absolutely love it. It is so comfortable I'm going to buy my children single versions. 19 March 2014
Suitable for one person / or occasional use only. Bought for my teenage son with the JL Apollo bedframe and he likes the mattress although it would be too soft for my liking. I don't think it would be robust enough for two adults as the main bed. It is starting to bulge on the sides after just a few weeks so we'll see how it lasts. Probably better as a guest bed. 13 December 2013
You get what you pay for It feels really lovely when you first sleep on this mattress but unfortunately the memory of the foam is too permanent and there is already a sag in my usual sleeping position. I've only had this for 6 weeks and I weigh less than 10 stone so expected better 28 February 2013
Fantastic mattress We bought this mattress as our new bed was a double rather than our original small double. The mattress we were replacing was also a memory foam one and not that old so we haven't seen much of a drastic difference as some of the other reveiwers. Having said that, we've found this mattress to be a bit firmer than our old mattress but this is a good thing, we are definately sleeping better (even at 7 1/2 months pregnant). The only problem is it is much deeper than most mattresses and as we use fitted sheets this can be a problem. You can buy deep fitted sheets but they are hard to find and can be quite expensive. We are going to try a kingsize sheet and see if that will do the job. But I would definately recommend this mattress, great quality and an excellent price. 07 December 2011
Thank you I recently purchased a mattress from John Lewis and i was able (at a small additional cost) to arrange for it to arrive within a small window of my day. When it arrived the guys were very professional and helped me move my furniture out of the way to enable an easy move in with the mattress. Thank you! 07 December 2011
