how do you even do it?! seriously – as an adult i haven’t had to buy a mattress yet – i have been sleeping on the same one i’ve had since high school. i knew it was time to upgrade but i didn’t know where to start.
i’ve got a few amazing people coming to stay with me over the summer (looking at you meg + jenna!) and that meant that a twin bed in my brothers room just wasn’t going to work.
soooo what’s a girl to do?
well, get herself a new mattress and move her old (but still comfy!) one into her brothers room.
i started by doing what every other twenty-something does: i took a poll on FB for what mattresses people love and for some good ol’ buying advice. i knew walking in that i wanted to try something other than a spring mattress (what i’m used to) – so i was already leaning towards foam. i had a few suggestions to different companies – but my heart was stolen when i saw tuft & needle.
i’m not sure exactly what it was.
maybe it’s that their marketing is on point (come on, we totally all look that).
or that they really walked through the different kind of mattresses and what they do for you.
or maybe it’s even that they have a 100 night sleep guarantee (if you don’t like it, ship it back fo’free) and a 10 year warranty! anndddd if i’m being honest my heart pitter-pattered at the fact that it is made in the good ol’ USA.
the box arrived on my front door step in this box that said “two person lift”
pssh…have you met me?
i had a bum calf muscle and still scooted that thing right on inside.
the morning i took it out of the box it was so easy to slide out, place on top of my box spring, cut the plastic and watch it “inflate”. it was like magic. how does a queen size mattress fit in the box that i could easily hide in (and i thought about hiding in it, trust me, jumping out to scare people who walk into my house!). i let it air out for a weekend (not that i needed to, i just happened to be going out of town) and came home super pumped to crawl into bed.
it. was. glorious.
i would say that first night i slept better than i have in a few weeks.
the next night i woke up a little sore on my sides – i think my body was adjusting to the foam mattress when i was so used to a spring mattress. now, about 2 weeks in i can honestly say that this foam mattress has stolen my heart. i didn’t think i would like it as much as i do, but ohhhhhh i do. tobi even likes it – he is constantly crawling up into bed to chill out with me.
needless to say, i’m sold.
this foam mattress is delightful and i still look forward to crawling into bed every night.
i’ll let you know how it holds up over the next few months – i’m used to having a bed develop a little spot for where i sleep the most – but so far that hasn’t happened here – the foam just re-inflates and it’s like a new mattress every night!
what kind of mattress do you have?
have you thought about trying something new?
is it surprisingly awesome to anyone else that a mattress can fit in a box?!
i received this queen mattress from tuft & needle fo’free to give you an honest review.
