Assessing the mattress we sleep on is not something that springs to mind on a regular basis, despite the fact that we go there every night and spend a large part of our lives there. We often complain about not getting sleep, having had a “bad” night, or moan over stiff necks and aches and pains. Exercise, of course, when done correctly makes us stronger and helps us to sleep better—but it also leaves us open to soreness and related strain issues.
I had thought I was getting a good night’s sleep but was still interested to see what type of products were out there, then Home and Living was contacted by the Novosbed folks for a trial. The model sent was the Aria.
We read all the literature about the traditional memory foam feel—similar to the Tempurpedic Tempur-Cloud Supreme. But I had no idea how great the Novosbed mattress would feel! The sink-in is similar to a pillow-top (which was there previously,) and the foam springs back nicely.
"But I had no idea how great it would feel."
The look of the mattress is really nice. It has a plushy-style velour-type cover on it that has a nice feel to the hand. It is heavy but two adults should be able to set it up; (I was astounded to learn how it fits in such a small delivery box—but spring forward it does, quite magically).
You can read about all the features on the website, but I have to tell you this. My sleep on this new mattress was entirely different to where I was before. Previously, it was my body’s habit to wake up about two or three times a night, go to the restroom, glance at the time, and return to sleep. With this mattress, I slept through the entire night, not waking once and was surprised at the fact that I had not even broke sleep at any time.
Not to mention, but in the morning my knees, which are commonly pressed together since I am, by and large, a side-sleeper, were not red from the pressure. And my hip, which I have had surgery on previously, did not feel like it had been dug into the mattress—I felt a really nice sense of relief and well-being.
They have this incredible test period, and an amazing guarantee that makes it almost impossible to NOT participate. If you are at all in the market to upgrade your sleep or if it’s time to look at mattresses, I believe you will not be disappointed working with the Novosbed people. And the cost comparisons to the other large mattress companies make it well worth your effort to check it out.
