Duvalay are looking for 10 Mumsnetters to try their latest mattress in the Hilary Devey Collection and to share feedback on a thread on Mumsnet.

Those selected will be sent either a Diamond (firmer) mattress or a Diamond-Luxe (softer) mattress (of their choice) and asked to try it on their existing bed frame. Each mattress has a retail value of £1000. You can choose the size you’d need.

More info and details here:

Here’s what Duvalay have to say “With over a third of our lives spent sleeping, picking the right mattress is an important factor in making sure you get a good night’s sleep. In an era of mass-production, turning to a handcrafted mattress can be a way of ensuring you don’t suffer from aches and pains after an uncomfortable night’s sleep. Combining traditional handcrafted bed-making techniques with the finest raw materials and innovation, the Hilary Devey Collection is a premium range of hand-made mattresses. Each one is produced from Duvalay’s new Yorkshire factory, which the company moved into a year ago, quadrupling floor space to keep up for the demand for Duvalay products. With Hilary (ex Dragons Den) at the forefront of the design of the collection, personally selecting key features and materials, the collection brings a fresh take to a male-dominated industry by providing affordable luxury with a glamorous edge”.

“The Diamond is a supreme quality mattress that features 2000 individually nested pocket springs. With a summer and winter side, it provides you with a good night’s sleep all year round thanks to its cotton side for summer, which wicks moisture away and a wool side for winter that provides a snug-like effect - furthermore it has been Tried and Tested by the Good Housekeeping Institute.

The Diamond-Luxe takes all the best elements of the Diamond mattress, including luxurious materials and hand side-stitched borders, and features a range of new elements that further add to its glamorous take on the perfect night’s sleep. It’s also one of the first mattresses to the UK market that offers both an ingenious new pocket spring called MidasTouch and a revolutionary new filling called Wooltec®. MidasTouch is a unique spring system that has been specially designed to offer initial softness but also provides much needed support once weight has been applied. Each spring is encased in its own fabric pocket, to actively reduce partner disturbance for a relaxing night’s sleep.

The Wooltec® filling is produced using one of nature’s finest materials, lambswool, and uses the latest is modern manufacturing techniques to create vertically bonded fibres, which allows air to circulate much more easily for greater temperature control. The specially bonded fibres also increase durability and comfort".

We’d like testers to share feedback at least three times on a thread on Mumsnet, as well as sharing photos on the thread. This is open to all UK MNers.

If you’d like to apply, please sign up here and we will be in touch with selected testers directly.



Standard Insight T&Cs Apply

UPDATE: Just for clarity, so long as the required feedback is left, selected testers will be able to keep the mattress after testing. Duvalay is unfortunately unable to take away old mattresses so testers will need to make their own arrangements for this.

It will be 3 times on the same thread - first impressions and then after a couple of weeks and then a round up comment. We will always email testers links to the thread as prompts.

Crippled with back pain - would love to sleep for more than two hours at a time again. Pick meeeeeee!!!

AwkwardSquad Wed 07-Jun-17 21:55:28

Yes please! I would love a decent night's sleep. Plus I am light and DP is definitely not, so we can test the mattress on whether I stay still when he turns over!

ChippyMinton Wed 07-Jun-17 22:08:35

Interesting smile

Saltandpepperpig Wed 07-Jun-17 22:14:04

I've signed up, in desperate need for this! Long term Chronic back pain sufferer and curved spine as well as newly pregnant with number 2! Current mattress is well past it's sell by date and can't afford a new one anytime soon. Would be amazing to be able to sleep through the night again and to wake up being able to move! smile

ShelaghTurner Wed 07-Jun-17 22:19:29

Signed up too! Also have weight differences between DH and I and DD2 seems to think our bed is hers too... hmm Our mattress is on its last legs and there's a giant dip on one side which everyone rolls down into! It's a new mattress or divorce! wink
