Why choose the Winstons Rochester over the Vispring Elite mattress?
When you’re looking for a new mattress, it can be overwhelming with all the options available. If you’re considering the Vispring Elite, it’s worth taking a look at the Winstons Rochester mattress. While both mattresses use the same type of spring and similar fibres, the Rochester has more GSM of 100% natural fibres and more pocket springs, which means it offers more support and comfort than the Elite.
GSM (grams per square meter) measures the weight and density of the fibres in a mattress. The higher the GSM, the more fibres the mattress contains, which makes it more expensive. So, if you’re comparing two mattresses with the same type of fibres, but one has a higher GSM, you’re getting better value for money by choosing the higher GSM option.
The Rochester mattress has two rows of genuine hand-side stitching, just like the Elite mattress, but we also use butterfly clips as an extra measure to prevent sagging at the edge of the mattress. The Rochester has a depth of approximately 31cm, opposed to the Elite’s 21cm. This is because we use 1450gsm of more fibres in our mattress, which provides better support and comfort.
Both the Rochester and Elite mattresses use a satin Belgian damask for the outer cover, so there’s no difference in quality there. However, the Rochester is £289.99 more than the Elite, but you’re getting significantly more for your money. The extra GSM of fibres and additional pocket springs make the Rochester a better choice for those who want a high-quality, supportive, and comfortable mattress.
In summary, if you’re in the market for a new mattress and considering the Vispring Elite, it’s worth taking a look at the Winstons Rochester. The Rochester has more natural fibres and pocket springs, which means it offers better support and comfort than the Elite. With two rows of hand-side stitching and butterfly clips to prevent sagging, you can be sure the Rochester is a quality investment.
