Well what can I say..... My last bed was a standard double and low down, looked nice but as I'm approaching my mid fifties doing shift work and commuting I wasn't sleeping well at all. Partly because of my husbands snoring and also my weird shift pattern. I'd been advised by my doctor/sisters that a bed can make all the difference and decided to invest in a super king divan. I can't tell you the difference it makes for me personally, I sleep so much better and I'm out for the count, no more getting up out of bed, I now slide out, you won't believe the difference that makes and yes my fella still wakes me up occasionally but no where near as much as he used too, he's over the other side you see, miles away. Its a big bed so of course you have to get new linen for it, the double duvet is just fine for us but we had to get new deep fitted sheets that's all. Hope this helps everyone...Thanks and night night ;o) PS It doesn't come with the headboard btw you have to buy that separately.
