You wouldn't believe the sales hype that some reps give in bed shops. One of the things that they will try and tell you is 'the more pocket springs in a mattress the better'. Well to be honest this isn't true.
800 springs in a king size mattress is enough to do what pocket springs are designed to do. If a mattress has too many springs (I have seen 3000 in a king size mattress), then the springs have to be made so small and weak that they can easily be damaged.
I usually recommend between 1000 and 1800 in a king size mattress.
If you find this guide helps, then please rate it.
I recon that the person who rated this guide as unhelpful must be one of those bed sellers who tries to convince people that the more springs the better.
