This weekend we made some great progress and I’m excited to share some of it with you, starting with a major addition to our bedroom: a new mattress.
We bought our old mattress about 6 years ago and it was expensive. It’s pillow-top, and was so so comfortable that we just sunk into it. Problem is, we just kept on sinking and we were left with body scoops in each of our sides of the bed. I don’t know if the photos can do it justice but there are clear body divots.
We knew it was bad but we didn’t want to spend a fortune on a new mattress just to have it happen again a few years later so we just kept putting it off. Then a company called Tuft and Needle reached out to me to see if I was interested in reviewing a new mattress. I didn’t know anything about them, but I thought hey, what have I got to lose? I signed on and anxiously awaited the new mattress’s arrival. And then it arrived….
In a box. Have you ever heard of a mattress arriving in a box? Not at all what we were expecting and Jon was immediately like “what’s in there, an air mattress? This is not going to go well.” We were worried.
And then we opened said box and continued to be worried when we saw it was packaged like a fruit roll-up.
And then, as if the Tuft and Needle people knew we were starting to worry, they told us “hey, don’t!” with a helpful card.
Phew! Still skeptical, we decided to slide the tootsie roll mattress toward the bed. Ruby rode ’em cowboy.
We cut away the packaging and before our very eyes, the mattress started to puff up. And puff up. And puff up some more. It was magic!
We put it into place and let it do its thing for 2-3 hours, as suggested and tada! It was a brand new, amazingly soft and comfortable king sized mattress! Ruby couldn’t wait to show her enthusiasm and give it a trial run.
She was in love and after our first night’s sleep, we were too. You guys, I’m amazed but it’s the perfect combination of soft and firm. We are both sleeping great. And the trippy packaging? Well, Tuft and Needle specializes in urban shipping, hence why it was so compactly packaged. Brilliantly weird. Here she is all dressed up.
I was impressed by their price points as well. We got the 10 inch thick king which retails for $600. So reasonable.
Now, here’s hoping it cures some of my back woes that I’m sure were made worse by my sinking old mattress.
*Our mattress was c/o Tuft and Needle, but I received no additional compensation for this review
