Anyone got a SIMBA mattress?

  • We ordered a silent night matress from John Lewis at the weekend.  Have paid for them to deliver and install, as we got a frame as well.  The delivery guys can deal with the stairs, I don't fancy it for £25 or whatever it was.

    I did not like the Simba matress having tried it a few times at JL.  Also not a big fan of the Tempur type ones.  But we did get 2 Tempur comfort pillows - they're amazing.  Expensive but have been worth it I'd say, super comfortable.

    Basically we're both 6 foot and 'not light', so preferred a firmer mattress.  I could totally see a smaller/lighter couple preferring a softer bed than us.

    My Eve super king mattress arrived yesterday. I bought it thinking it'd be easier to get up the bloody stairs on my own as it comes in a box and being foam must be fairly light...Wrong!
    The box is heavy and unwieldy and the handles tear cos of the weight.
    Got to get my thinking cap on...
    Can you not 'slide' the box up the stairs on it's side, and push from the bottom?

    To me. To you.

    ^That's exactly what I plan to do. Have to move a few things to have the room to get it to the foot of the stairs (I swear the box is almost 4ft wide), but it should be doable.

    I'm shocked that the delivery drivers didn't deliver it upstairs!

    Me and the Mrs are both skinny and I struggle with firmer mattresses, preferring softer ones for comfort. I always thought a firm mattress was best for a bad back but a lot depends how far your weight makes you sink into it. 

    We had a water bed for a while but we started to drift apart so went back to a normal one.

    My back is fine, just my BMI is the wrong side of 30 currently.  I'm hoping when I rectify that I won't want a new bed, but that'll teach me for putting on weight...

    I've never really liked our current mattress, which is pretty soft, but we didn't buy it so can't really complain about that.  Really looking forward to getting the new one

    They say it's to keep costs down - mattresses are shipped by regular couriers. Mine came by UPS.

    Kirstie Allsopp tells everyone that Vi-Spring make  the best beds.

    I do the same.

  • Simba is the most advanced mattress in the world, a unique combination of 2500 conical pocket springs and responsive memory foam.

    Wow, what a fab claim! I simply must buy one of these! 

    Wait... You're genuine right? I really don't want to be duped by a shill!

    had a Tempur for 14 years ......it is as good as the day it arrived and supremely comfortable but memory foam takes 2 weeks to get used to
    I have a lipoma tumour (not dangerous) on the side of my spine and tend to sleep on my back so I am very conscious of the mattress . The pillows are good too.

    If you're going to be duped by anyone it should be a shill.

    You don't want an amateur duping, do you?

    Amateur dupings are my favourite.

  • We got our new mattress and bed frame delivered yesterday.

    So nice going from a double to a king size...

    It's quite firm so far.  We knew it was firm when we ordered it, that's what we liked after trying loads of different mattresses in multiple shops, plus our last mattress was on the soft side, so it feels like quite a change.  Guess we'll have to try it for a few weeks and see how it goes!

    To be honest my favourite thing we got was the Tempur Comfort pillows... great decision on those, just so comfy.  They are expensive but given the amount of time you spend sleeping it's actually a bargain to be comfortable

    I do not know Simba, but you can try Casper or purple mattress. Many online sites give the reasonable price for this bed, and they are available in many sizes( small, medium and large) You can choose according to your requirement.
    Glad you joined this morning to tell us that, and I hope your boss appreciates it.

  • Are they called Simba because they are good for lion on?
