Cheers J.

I was wrong about the unidirectional thing - I see they do recommend you give it a 180 every 30 days for a year, then 6 monthly thereafter.
I've ignored all of that.
The mattress still works.

Yes - but does it work as well as if you'd rotated it  ;D

We couldn't turn our previous JL mattress and still have it correctly oriented. It still worked.
We can turn our current JL mattress but only twice per year with the seasons. It still works.

Ideally, mattresses should be turned frequently through all four possible orientations. I suppose they my get lumpier in places if not turned, or not last quite so long.

We spent a *lot* of money on a John Lewis mattress a couple of years ago. Can't recall brand/model but I will say this: comfy it may be, but it is an absolute bugger to lift when you're changing the sheets. I think we may have changed the orientation just once - we have moved house after all. But this is a real monster when you're changing the bedding: not something I had considered beforehand, but definitely something I would take into consideration when buying in the future.

I think the website does give a weight for their mattresses.
I read 53kg for ours IIRC.

I leave turning to D + cleaner.

Hypnos.  You can't beat them.  But they aren't cheap.

Eve doesn't get as toasty as other memory foam mattresses.
I've tried both.
Eve is way cooler.

Is your Eve mattress the 'Original', or the more spendy 'Premium' and 'Premium Hybrid'?

I'm pretty sure that when I bought mine there wasn't an option.
However, I've just dug out my order confirmation, and it doesn't give a type, just the size.
It was £699.00 for a king size in 2016 - so you may be able guess it from that.

ETA: Having looked at their website mine is the original memory foam jobbie.
Not the hybrid or premium hybrid.

Just placed an order for a double EVE Original mattress. The 100 day no like, return, free collection + refund was too tempting (they state they will collect from one's bedroom)

Plus also got a further £50 discount from:

https://www.whatmattress.uk/mattress-reviews/eve-mattress-review/?affcoups_coupon=968

So that's £439. The punt has been taken - we shall see

Thanks everyone for their inputs - any decision making is an increasingly painful struggle in slopeworld these days :-\

ps to replace the original Vi-Spring Regal Supreme mattress would cost circa £3150 :o

Sounds like you've done well  :thumbsup:
ETA:  I'll be interested to know how you get on.
I knew after my first night's sleep - but then, I'd been sleeping on a second-hand, rock-hard futon base for the best part of 25 years.  ::-)

My plan is to dither until the 30% offer expires. Then to have to start again with the completely different set of options I will then have. Probably start a new thread on it too: “what width of bed?” is a strong possibility.

The Eve Original foamy standard double mattress arrived yesterday and was lugged up the monsterously slippery when wet rough faced, uneven Welsh stone steps. Excitedly unboxed, unwrapped and watched in awe as it unfurled and grew into a 25cm deep double jobbie. The full expansion took about 4 hours all told.

I was so prepared to NOT like it - being a right on 'Mr Natural' cotton/hemp/wool/pocket springy organic type of dude, in my mind's eye.

But going on one night's sleep, two of my fears have been alleviated - it doesn't feel at all hot, as has sometimes been suggested these things might, and I couldn't detect any smell (also reports of vague chemical whiffs for a day or two), probably cos I lost most of my normally acute sense of smell in June 2019 ::-)

Most importantly, it was supremely comfortable and supportive, like a dream come true? Not too hard (which was another was thing I was catatrophising about) and not too soft. It's mounted on the original 1995 Vi-Spring sprung divan base, which seems almost as new. Basically it "rocks" with banish the doubt pleasure. Early days for sure though, we shall see?

It's very likely a keeper and made me realise just how buggered and possibly damaging to me, the 26 year old Vi-Spring had become. As mentioned previously, the replacement mattress for it is now £3150! - I remember when it was first purchased, the question was asked how long does a thing this spendy last - the dapper besuited trustworthy grey haired salesman, who'd worked all his life in Newbury's finest department store, suggested 10 years, that was in 1995.

The Eve Original double has cost £439 (with a discount code I found online) - if it gives pleasure and comfort for 5 years I'll be cock-a-hoop.

And thank you Jurek and Valiant :thumbsup:
