This post is made in collaboration with Big Fig Mattress. I was gifted a mattress to review, all opinions are my own.
I excitedly plopped onto the corner of the bed as I heard “POP!”
“Did I really just do that? There’s no way. You’ve got to be kidding me!”
Sure enough, I slowly lifted myself off the bed, peaked under the mattress and found the flimsy slat cracked.
Oh the horror. I just broke the bed.
Well instead of feeling ashamed of myself, I decided to find a better option. I may not look like most people, and that means that my bed shouldn’t be like most people’s beds. Throw in my 6’4’’ former college offensive lineman husband and you have a recipe for disaster…especially when you’re in the middle of trying to conceive if ya know what I mean.
So a few months ago when we decided to rearrange the house and move our master bedroom downstairs so that the kiddos could have their own rooms, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to find a bed that could handle ALL OF THIS!
I did A LOT of research, and one name kept popping up: Big Fig. I had heard of it from other friends of mine that had one, so I promptly reached out to my girl Miranda from The Plus Life Blog and said “SPILL! Is it really THAT good?” To which she told me she had the best sleep of her entire life since switching to the Big Fig. (you can read her review here!)
That was all I needed (hello power of influence haha!) and off I went to get myself one! The foundation was what really sold it for me. STURDY my fellow plus size babes out there. The foundation (which is included in all Big Fig Mattress purchases) has 18 slats set only 2.5 inches apart which means 5x the reinforcement and 5x the peace of mind. Add in a strong steel bed frame that holds up to 2000 pounds and now we’re talking jumping on the bed with the kids worthy!
The hybrid construction of the mattress means you get the best of both worlds: spring coils with 4 layers of foam. It is a firmer mattress, but this means no more sagging in the areas you spend the most time. I hadn’t realized after switching from a much softer mattress to the Big Fig, that my body needed the firmness. I’m getting up fewer times at night, and sleeping more soundly with less tossing and turning.
But, let’s be honest here…the real test for me was in the intimate moments. Would it be solid in the times where it was the LAST thing I wanted to think about, and let me tell you ladies…it has pulled through for me. This bed doesn’t BUDGE, and for me, thats a win! As my prenatal doctor said, trying to conceive is the fun part, and my Big Fig has brought the peace of mind back to the bedroom so that it can be FUN again!
So if you’ve ever felt like you needed a mattress made just for YOU and your plus size body, well friend, this is it. I encourage you to give the Big Fig a try using their 120 Night Trial! And if you order now, you can get $250 off with code DISCOVER!
Just do you babes!
