we are in a process of bying matress and narrowed down to hastens matress. A saleperson in a Hastens store suggested to buy H. Excelsior which they stop making about 2 years ago buy according to her matress IS BRAND NEW . Price 11k



therefore we have a few questions

1. Is is possible to have a brand new matress that been in a store for more than 2 years and is discontinued model

2. What is a good price gor this matress

3. how can we be sure that matress is BRAND NEW and sealed in Sweden vs been used and resealed

4. am i better of buying brand new one in a store

5. what is average discount most people are getting when they buy Hastens/ according to a saleperson 10% is MAXIMUM discount

Thanks Alex

Hi pweg
Out of curiosity, why are you about to buy a Relyon when your Excelsior is only 14 months old?

HI Needtosleep


long story .....  when i bought the Hastens it was a choice between Hastens and Lavital. I bought the Hastens solely on reputation. The first 2 nights were great, but the concept of the topper over mattress doesnt work for me. Because the horse hair in the topper is not held under tension and tufted (like it is in a savoir topper) it compresses very quickly, and despite kneading and rolling and all the other maintenance you are meant to do, you just cant get the same level of top layer softness/suppleness back. Also i turned and rotated the mattress every 3 to 4 days and its just a pain as it is really heavy and unconstructed to flip.


so i bought some relyon beds for my kids and before i gave them to my kids i slept on them and thought they were great. The top layers are very tightly compressed so they give great support while at the same time being soft and pliable. So far there are no body impressions whatsoever and it been a couple of months. This compares with the Hastens where the topper compressed almost immediately - to be fair the Hastens mattress has no impressions on it at all after 14 months. To those who have Hastens no disrespect - I have one too. I currently sleep on the Hastens without the topper.


both beds are great in terms of all natural (no foam, no latex  - all hair, cotton and wool). They breathe great. FWIW  I came from a Tempur bed (5 years)  and a latex bed (7 years) before that. If you want breathability and coolness when u sleep then you need a natural old styled mattress made by hand and filled with hair, cotton and wool.
