A good night's sleep: My Big Fig Mattress Review




At the beginning of this year, like every year, I made a list of things I want to accomplish. A resolution/bucket list hybrid, if you will. My list always includes fun adventures, lots of travel, family time and lofty work goals. A lovely list filled with grand ideas and challenging obstacles. And then, like always, I get to the end of the list and add on what probably the most important of all: my health and wellness. Without which none of the other things can be accomplished. Yet somehow, its always an afterthought. So this year, I decided I was going to make my wellness my number one priority (with margaritas on the beach coming in close second ;) ).






I broke that wellness category into buckets.

1. Food: I know what needs to be done. Eating for fuel, for strength, for energy. I could do this. It would take time, but I figured small steps towards a big goal.

2. Fitness: DUH. Just GET TO THE GYM, Meaghan. I love working out, so I knew I just needed to schedule in sessions like they were meetings I couldn't miss.

3. Mental Health: Church, prayer, meditation, practices of gratitude. Done and Done.

4. Sleep: **cue flatline sound** This was it. The missing puzzle piece that was ruining the big picture. I knew I wasn't sleeping enough, knew I wasn't sleeping *well*, and I knew the facts. I knew that on average, we spend at least 1/3 of our lives in bed! Yes, 1/3, for some of us even more! So this point in my wellness plan quickly became my number one priority. Something needed to change, and change fast.


Fatigue, tossing, turning, and waking up unexpectedly in the middle of the night.

Never fully feeling rested. These were all things I had accepted as my norm. So, when Big Fig Mattress reached out to me, I said YES YES YES!!! And its a good FIG-gin' thing I did, because they literally changed my life.


Turns out, the sleep portion of my wellness plan was in fact the most important. Everything from my mood, to my appetite, my everyday habits, energy level, focus and productivity were all affected by my lack of a good night's sleep. And yet, I didn't know it. That is, until I spent my first night with my Big Fig Mattress. Not one wink of sleep was lost on discomfort, for real. I woke up feeling energized, not exhausted. My body felt awake, not achey. My brain was ready to get to work, not feeling sluggish from a messy night's sleep.





I could go on and on, and probably will in another blog post but for now, I want to make this really simple for ya'll. Keep reading to learn all about Big Fig Mattress and WHY it changed everything for me!


THE MATTRESS

Before even beginning the design and manufacture process, the Big Fig Mattress Squad identitfied common problems people with larger figures were experiencing with their mattresses and approached each provlem individually so they can properly find a solution that did not compromise quality or comfort.


Here are some amazing features that make Big Fig a game changing mattress;


To sum it up:

- High Density Foam: Hello comfort!

- Hybrid Construction: I believe this is the secret sauce y'all.

- Innerspring System: Next level support (50% more coils than the average).

- Thermogel material: Two words: temperature regulation.

- Super Strong Foundation: We're talking Amish Strong, 18 slat kinda foundation!

- 120 Night Trial: Big Fig understands it's difficult to buy a mattress online. Which is why they offer a 120-night trial so you can be sure this is the mattress for you (plus no return shipping fees!).

- 20 Year Warranty: Who doesn't love a warranty!





There are so many more points of interest so be sure to click the link above and read up, but I can promise you there is a level of sorcery happening in this mattress.


ONE (tiny) Callout: The tufting, which is the solution to keeping the design of the layers and alignment of the mattress in place, takes some getting used to. Maybe I'm super sensitive, but I felt them and found them to be a nuisance so I added thin mattress pad to buffer it a bit. Another option is you can add a thicker mattress topper, but I didn't want to compromise my review by adding a layer of anything to the mattress. And honestly, I'm glad I didn't. This baby doesn't need A THING! My BFM is perfect just as it is!





THE COST

Upgrading my sleep situation was the best thing I could have ever done.

Now, granted, Big Fig Mattress gifted me this bed in exchange for a review & social media support - which, as you all know, is #sponsored. But with every bit of sponsored content I produce, I continue to stand my ground in providing you all with my 100% honest opinion. The same goes for this review!


Here's the deal, you get what you pay for.

That is the case with just about everything in life, AMIRIGHT?

I'm embarrassed to say it, but I was sleeping on a 13 year old mattress which laid on top of a very weak foundation which sat on top of an Ikea bed frame that was one stiff breeze away from falling to bits.


I can confidently say the Big Fig Mattress is worth every penny. Plus, with financing options and great coupon deals (Save $200 With Code: LUCKYFIG until 3/19!), they help you get the best night's sleep that you deserve.
