Bed Buddy Report |Findings |
One of the most well-known back pain accessibility mattresses manufacturers that have been directly supplying hotels and resorts beds for their accessibility rooms. Not well known in mainstream conventional retail, but most popular in the accessibility mattress industry. Millgrove uses high-quality materials in their mattresses, but have no retail marketing exposure so you’ll only find them if you know someone in the hospitality or health care industry. The Millgrove Majesty Series is their retail collection and offers four triple dense natural latex mattresses, all for eliminating back pain. This report is on the Gingham model.
- The Gingham is completely hand made with techniques that involve hand stitching and quilting instead of glues and adhesives. Very high-quality materials are used, probably to pass the strict scrutiny of the hotel industry that they cater to. The support core is one uniform piece instead of layers glued together so it will not separate and dip. Most beds are made of stacked material with various firmness to give you the soft comfort layer and firm support layer. Millgrove achieves this with progressive compression latex, which means the firmness will increase with increasing pressure. This latex is triple dense, so the amount of latex in a 9” support core is equivalent to 27” of latex, the downside is this mattress is very heavy. The whole bed is covered in pure silk, which is excellent beyond anything else on the market. The Gingham is simultaneously softer and more supportive than anything else with the 1” light density latex comfort layer.
Millgrove incorporates labor-intensive manufacturing techniques and quality materials creating the Gingham and the other models. They are constantly at work in custom building beds for back pain.
After collecting extensive buyer experience data on the Gingham model from professionals who recommend this mattress to patients, I can confidently say customers with back pain swear by these beds and are very happy. Our testing found that Millgrove models are exceptional in its backpain relief function and durability, this bed will not compromise in support. It is above the average cost of conventional mattresses, but if you talk to almost any Millgrove customer, you’ll hear nothing but rave reviews.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for Royal Stewart Mattress?
Based on my customer feedback, the Gingham mattress received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
As you can see, the Gingham is a great choice for side, back, and stomach sleepers, especially larger folks (230 lbs and beyond) who want something softer than the Royal Stewart Model. We are weary of recommending the Gingham to lighter shoppers no matter their sleep style, since the support maybe a little more than you need.
My testing found the progressive compressive support system works best for heavier and average weight back sleepers, but most light sleepers should look to the Burberry or Madras model for a softer comfort section, while still getting the incredible back pain relief.
My testing process found the Royal Stewart should be great for you if…
- You have intermittent to chronic backpain that is debilitating and need to be addressed.
- You need a much firmer back support than what is offered with conventional mattresses but is still soft to lie on.
- You have tried various mattresses that only exasperate the backpain.
- You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you feel on the bed.
- You are familiar with the slight temporary discomfort for long term pain relief like the feeling of a chiropractor straightening your back or a deep tissue massage therapist working out knots.
- The Gingham has a significant supporting core that repositions your spine and a comfort layer for softness.
