For back sleepers, we recommend medium or medium-firm feel double mattresses that provide enough back support. In addition, the sturdy structure of natural pocket spring double mattresses will ensure you won’t dip into the bed, thus, keeping your body aligned whilst still offering substantial levels of comfort.
