Big Fig Mattress – 1 Year in Review

Big Fig Mattress has been apart of my bedroom for the last year; and what an amazing year that has been! A year ago I shared a blog post here on my site detailing all the reasons I was excited to make Big Fig Mattress apart of my boudoir furnishings.

Just to enlighten those of you who haven’t read that post; I’m fat.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way; it was one of the main reasons I wanted a Big Fig Mattress. I’ve slept on a slew of mattresses in my life and my size varied from smaller to larger in that time. However, after a rough pregnancy and developing osteoarthritis, my body was crying for a new mattress.

Mattress shopping may seem easy enough, but when you are a large body there’s plenty of things you have to take into consideration. Comfort is definitely one of those things. Durability and longevity are also right up there with comfort.

So What’s The Verdict

After a year of 750 lbs sleeping on this mattress (other adult activities included lol); Big Fig Mattress is as awesome and in tact as it was since day one (give a take a spill or two).

Why Do I Like The Big Fig Mattress

It is the perfect combination of firm support and comfort. Personally for my body, super soft and fluffy beds don’t do much in the way of supporting my body. On my previous mattress I was waking up aching from the lack of support. With the Big Fig Mattress it’s not so rock hard that I can’t find comfort; but not so soft that it doesn’t provide any support to my back and hips.

I love that when I climb into this bed I feel securely supported by the foundation. I never had a foundation like the this before:

Upon first inspecting it, I didn’t really see how this wood frame was going to uphold my body let alone mine and my husband’s.When I saw on their site the claim that this foundation could hold up to 2,000 lbs; it was what had me most skeptical but also most intrigued! I can’t speak to the 2,000 lbs but I can confirm that it’s truly held up without incident in this last year for myself and hubby.

Final Thoughts

I’ve had a lot of questions about the Big Fig Mattress over the last year. Mostly people wondering if it lives up to all the hype. I’m always glad that I can proudly and honesty say yes. There was a time in my life when I was willing to sacrifice sleep; these days it’s not an option. My health has been my focus, and good sleep is a big contributing factor to getting my health to it’s optimal place.

Big Fig has literally lived up to ever claim they’ve made on their site and I look forward to making it another year with Big Fig!
