Ok we have finally had enough of sleeping on our straw/concrete base mattress.

Does anyone know where we can buy a decent Sprung mattress in Bangalore?

Cheers

Lots of places, actually. I think the question you should ask, and what ddutta already answered is, which brand you should buy.
You can find the mattresses in the jayanagar 4th block market, Big Bazaar. Keep your eyes open, you will find them everywhere, in fact

I bought a couple in Ooty, but can't remember the make - sorry!

They're about half the thickness of a UK mattress, but very comfy, and I suppose you could join two together if you wanted an extra-soft sleeping experience

Rather annoyingly, the double-bed matress is a little bit too big to fit in the bed frame, so it overhangs by a few inches. I bought the bed and the matress together, so I would have thought it should fit - but this is India

I do, however, know the make of a blanket I bought...

It's great for the Ooty climate, but Shital use on the plains!

Springwell Mattresses. You can get different sizes and thicknesses. Find a large dealer and he will order for you. Don't think they have their own outlets.

Try calling up homestore, they should ideally have it but I am not 100% sure. Also the next time you drive through Koramangala check out the both sides, I remember some good furniture marts on the sides where you may be able to find this thingy..

Not able to give more precise suggestions as I am quite an alien to this city despite living here for about 7 years now !!!

Thanks for all the help and information guys. Gonna go searching today with all that information and a renewed 'spring' in my step. I have seen hundreds of mattresses for sale all over the place but really only those awful ones.

You spend a third of your life in bed so I figure its important thing to get right and worth spending a bit on, it just seems that after a nights sleep on this old thing you have to slowly unfold yourself and don't feel like you've slept at all.

Maybe thats why I'm a grouchy old barsteward!!

Cheers

Find a mattress shop and ask them to order you a Springwell.

Hi H Nair

I did yes, I went to Infantry road near Samarkhand and then turned into a little link road back towards the city centre where there is a big mattress shop. The only problem is that they don't sell beds and all the mattresses are jammed in to a small space stood on end so you can't test one which is the same with most stores sadly unless you go to a department store and pay 50% extra. Anyway, most of the mattresses in these little shops are the regular 'Concrete & Coconut' variety so you need to tell them what you want. I chose one for rs13000 because it claimed to be orthopedic and mould to your body, the next morning I could barely move my limbs so I managed to get an exchange and for an extra rs7000 got a Kurlon 10 inch sprung mattress with pillow top.

It is much more comfortable but still nowhere near as my old mattress back home in UK.

To get something special here you'll need to spend rs3500 plus, my friends paid that for a Springwell and swear by it.

If you are rolling in cash you could go to Homestore opposite Garuda Mall and buy a Danish Tempur mattres for about rs1.5 lakh, darn expensive but one of the most comfortable things in the world, just a sod to sell again when you leave, if you leave!

Hope that helps!

I never said it was comfortable Nick, just more comfortable thats all!

GC, just couldn't do that mate, tried it years ago when i had real back problems, for me it just got worse.

What I want to know is how you guys sleep in parks or half on the pavement with legs dangling in the road, or do you have to be drunk?

we are mentally and spiritually fecking when we are lying on the benches like that malkers. you are so tied to a physical body..transcend yourself..do yoga and meditation you know and let it take you to other planes of interaction

who cares of the small bench size or the surroundings when i am in spiritual union with jolie or aishwarya?
