Catching Zzzzzs July 20, 2015 Life, Our House 3 Comments 5323 I didn’t think it was possible to get so excited about something as seemingly mundane as a mattress being delivered. But I was seriously giddy. Perhaps it was because it had been sooooo long since the last time a mattress had made a grand entrance up the stairs or because my aching back saw potential relief. But this week when my Perfect Sleeper arrived, I felt like it should have been a national holiday. Like I mentioned in my first post, Serta® is the only official mattress of the National Sleep Foundation, designed to help solve 5 common sleep problems. Tossing/Turning Lack of Support Back Pain Sleeping Hot Partner Movement and Sagging/Rolling Off I was eager to see if it would help me with these issues! We decided on the Plush Memory Foam mattress after testing out a few models. The “plush” just means it has an extra layer of PillowSoft® foam on top. All of the memory foam mattresses use the Cool Action™ Gel memory foam – which is great for hot sleepers like me! We chose a regular flat foundation, but they make adjustable foundations that are compatible with all the Perfect Sleeper mattresses. The Pivot™ model allows you to adjust the head of the mattress, and The Motion Essentials™ model allows you to adjust both the head and the foot of the mattress. Regardless of the mattress or foundation, Serta® is one of the most affordable choices for a high quality mattress. The way my house is set up, it’s actually really difficult to get a king size mattress up/down the stairs. When I suggested that we dump the old mattress off the balcony attached to our bedroom, the delivery guys gave me an interesting look. I explained to them that that’s the way the mattress got in there in the first place, and they thought I was joking.I told them how two people had hoisted it up from the front porch and how I’d clung to it using my body weight as a counterbalance while one of the people had run up the stairs to help me. I may have also been acting it out. After some initial hesitation, they agreed! I think they had fun tossing the old mattress and box springs off the balcony onto the driveway. It was sort of cathartic.And sure enough, the new bed went in the same way 🙂 After the first night, I noticed that I didn’t wake up with back stiffness or pain. This is HUGE people! I’m super excited about that!! The mattress is a little warmer than my old one, but not enough to bother me. After a few nights, I am totally used to the new feel. Mike is out of town, so he actually hasn’t gotten to sleep on it yet 🙁 Unfortunately I can’t speak to how well it isolates our movements during the night yet. I tend to be a little anxious/restless at night while he’s gone anyways, so I definitely expect my sleeping experience to be a bit different when he comes home. But for now, I’m very pleased with the change so far. I find that it’s very comfortable no matter what position I’m laying in – which is saying a lot because I used to not be able to stay comfortable in one position. Also I notice I don’t wake up as much because my arm/hand is asleep. Each night, I feel like my sleep is getting better. I can’t tell you how awesome it is to wake up without my typical stiffness and lower back pain. I’ll be posting once more in this series – after I’ve had more time to sleep on the mattress – so I can give a true review. I can’t wait for Mike to try it as well. So far, I’m giving the Plush Memory Foam Perfect Sleeper two enthusiastic thumbs up! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Serta for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. 3 Responses » Adventures in Layers August 25, 2015 […] I saw seemed to compete with it.
