This is a topic i know quite a bit about, First of all, disregard what the poster above said, Do not buy an ordinary sprung mattress, they are the
cheapest and least supportive of all mattresses, The springs are formed from one continuous length of wire and the springs are interconnected,
Typically these have large but very few springs (about 100) and are awful. What you want is a "pocket sprung" mattress, This has individual springs
that are encased within a cloth pocket, they are not connected and extremely supportive and have an large amount of small springs (typically 1000 -
2000) The more springs the better....
As for memory foam, I would recommend "a pocket sprung memory foam mattress" that is a good pocket sprung mattress with a memory foam top layer
But you have to be careful when choosing, A vast amount of mattresses sold as memory foam are just plain old foam like you get inside a settee, which
is fine for setting your bum on but terrible for sleeping on, many people are duped by this scam. memory foam molds to your body shape and is
comfortable as heck to sleep on.
Also get a mattress that has the top layer made from bamboo fiber, it has a natural cooling effect, As is soft and comfortable, not hard and scratchy
like you would think bamboo fiber would be.
Another tip is to stay away from the big bed & mattress store, it is the scam of the century, they get the manufacturer to stitch a unique label on
the mattress and mark the price up by about 3x. That £800 mattress you seen is worth around £300.
Here is one i recommend, im not sure if you're in the UK but if not you will find something similar in your country
