Several weeks ago, I tweeted that I needed a mattress and I had a blog. I was expecting a discount. Instead, Beth from USleep.com contacted me and offered a mattress for the cost of shipping. I was a little hesitant, because I wasn’t sure you could really buy a mattress on-line.
I investigated the USleep.com site. I really liked the Mattress Comfort Scale which gives you a point to start. Jim and I decided we needed a 6 or 7 on the scale. We need a mattress somewhere in the middle, because I never know day to day what’s going to hurt.
Beth explained the differences in two of their mattresses and suggested the Lavish Comfort. Still, I was hesitating because I wasn’t convinced you could buy a mattress on line. I mean, you have to go to the store and flop around on a bunch, right? Until you find the one that you like.
But I took the plunge and went with the Lavish Comfort because something called “Lavish Comfort” sporting a “Euro top” pillow has to be great. I’m happy to say, I made the right choice.
The delivery people from CEVA Delivery were amazing. They put down a moving blanket to keep the floor clean. They removed my old bedding and moved my frame out by the garage. One of the things I liked about USleep.com was their policy of breaking down and recycling my old mattress and box springs. You know I’m big on being green when I can!
Once the mattress was in place, I hurried upstairs. I was surprised at how high my bed sits now. I knew the Lavish Comfort mattress was 14 inches thick. I thought my old mattress was about 12. But this bed sits really really high! I was afraid I was going to fall out of it the first night. Luckily, Jim was in Kentucky with Jeremy and Jermaine and I was able to sleep toward the middle.
The mattress itself is covered in a nice, sturdy fabric. It almost feels like velvet! The seams seemed strong and none were loose when I checked.
The first night was a little rough. I woke up the next morning feeling like my back was twisted and mangled. Of course, I googled about it and read articles on several different sites that explained mattresses require an adjustment period. Most sites agreed that you would be completely adjusted within two weeks, possibly four.
The second night was so much better. I usually wake up several times a night. I didn’t wake up once! I was surprised to wake up around seven in the morning, actually feeling rested! I think I’m going to really love this mattress!
Because a mattress is such a major purchase, I will be doing regular updates to let you know how this mattress is working for us.
