So, you may or may not know that Jack, bump and I just moved into our new home this month, hallelujah! I’ve talked about it in a couple of blog posts but it’s basically been a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I’m so pleased with our new home that will be our first home as a little family of three come January, eep!
Of course, moving meant that we were in need of buying pretty much everything that you need in a home. One of those things being a bed and a mattress. I was actually contacted by the lovely people over at The Brighter Mattress Co to see if I would like to try out one of their memory foam mattresses*! I’ve never had a memory foam mattress before, so I was pretty excited to now be the proud owner of what Jack and I are now convinced is 100% the way forward with mattresses!
The first totally cool thing about our new mattress was that it came in a box(cough cough, free next day delivery too oh yessss), which you will have seen if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, cheeky plug. Most things come in a box when they are delivered to you I hear you say, but this Brighter Mattress Co mattress comes in a fairy small box considering that there’s an actual mattress inside. Friends, it’s a vacuum packed mattress, how insane is that!?
On our first night in our new home, it got to about 8pm and we were still needing to build our bed, and by we I mean Jack of course! I was actually super excited to get to bed because a, it had been a super long day of moving and general anxiousness and b, I was actually super duper excited to finally try out our new mattress! I tell ya, it was worth the wait!
Once Jack had built our bed frame, we got to unpack the mattress from it’s box! I was a little frightened that it might ping out of the box, but it was actually a really smooth transition from getting it out of the box and onto the bed frame! We unrolled our brand new mattress onto our lovely new bed frame and let it gradually “un vaccum pack,” I can’t think of what the technical term is for it but basically, allow it to re puff out!
Like I said, this mattress is a memory foam mattress, which is some pretty fancy stuff! It has even been praised for it’s ability to reduce pressure on the body and reduce pain! That sentence alone is like music to my ears because, if you’re pregnant or have ever been pregnant you will also know, being pregnant and trying to get a decent and comfy nights sleep is on par as difficult as trying to find a needle in a haystack. But, I tell you no lie, laying on this mattress is honestly like laying inside a cloud! I’ve been trying to figure out how I can describe what sleeping on this mattress feels like and that’s the best way I can try to describe it!
