Big Fig Mattress

I slept on the same twin size mattress until I was 18. So regardless of my size, I've always appreciated a beautiful comfortable mattress.

We spend a whole 1/3rd of our life sleeping. I've gone through periods where it's been more than that and far less than that, due to my own life situations, lifestyle changes and sleeping issues. One thing is for certain though, sleep is one thing we all do and need.

When Big Fig Mattress reached out, I was stoked to say the least. I had seen several other influencers do reviews but I really was curious for myself to see if all the hype was true!

"If you are one of the 165 million people in the United States who may identify with the plus size demographic, you might not be sleeping well as a result of your mattress. You probably have experienced common frustrations with your mattress: Sagging, overheating throughout the night, collapsing box spring, shifting of materials, lack of edge support, and so on. The cause is simple: most mattresses were not designed to comfortably support plus size sleepers for longer than 2-3 years. The Big Fig Mattress and Foundation provides the solution. The team behind Big Fig has been building mattresses for over 90 years, and set out to engineer a mattress from the ground up specifically for the plus size sleeper. They sourced higher quality materials like high density foam, 50% more innerspring coils than most mattresses on the market, perforated foam with ThermoGel cooling technology, and paired it with a wooden foundation that supports 5X the weight of traditional foundations. Then, they rigorously tested it to transparently prove long-lasting quality. The Big Fig was designed and tested to comfortably last 20 years for 1,000 lbs. The Big Fig is truly the first mattress built from the ground up specifically for bigger figures."

The delivery process to start was a BREEZE. I had the option of having it carried and set up or doing it myself, so I chose the assistance because there was no way I was going to get this Queen Size mattress up multiple flights of stairs! I hate to say it but it's nice to sit back and just point at where you want things! I got the box spring as well and they set that up too! It all took matter of only a few minutes. Like I said, easy breezy!

For some context so you can get a true idea about how this experience is for me, I am not generally a peaceful sleeper. I've always been one to toss and turn and get tied up in my sheets. It takes me a long time to fall asleep and even get comfortable in the first place. I also have insomnia a lot of the time, so at night I spend a lot of time laying down awake trying to sleep, which is usually very physically uncomfortable.

My life is constantly inconsistent and very busy as of late. So when it's time for me to hit the hay, that time needs to count. I sleep on a lot of hotel beds, in cars while traveling several times a week and on planes, so again, when I get home I NEED to be comfortable.

After long days of being on my feet for hours on end, or weeks long of traveling, I desperately need proper rest and comfort so I can reboot and do it all again.

So, my Big Fig Mattress is here..

Ahhh it's ascetically pleasing, the right size and looks comfy...But does it work? NAP TIME.

I thought an immediate nap time to test it out would be a good idea.

"At Big Fig, our mission aligns with the Body Positivity movement, a vision based on self-love, body acceptance and positive life choices. We believe that the industry needs less mattress lines that claim to “work for everyone”, and more mattress lines that can truly support all body figures over a period of 20 years. Every person is entitled to a comfortable long-lasting mattress designed to support him or her, and every person is entitled to the truth about the mattress they invest in."

I love everything that Big Fig stands for and has worked for to produce and genuinely solve an issue for so many people.

As a person with obviously severe sleeping issues, and as a plus size person, I was even more obviously excited when I slept through my nap beautifully! Not only my nap though, but having this mattress as my regular bed now has been LIFE CHANGING. The mattress is beyond comfortable, and gives the perfect amount of support. I sleep so much more soundly now. Though I still have some of my sleeping issues like my insomnia, this Big Fig mattress has honestly alleviated many of problems I didn't even realize could be fixed.

If you are in the market for a new mattress, or are just ready for a new one and ready to give your body the rest and comfort in needs, I highly recommend Big Fig Mattress!
