Our little man is here and we’re now happily a co-sleeping family of 4 on our new Purple mattress.
I originally thought my daughter would out grow our family bed before little man arrived, but as we got closer and closer to my due date I realized we actually weren’t ready for that transition yet. So now I had a problem, our queen bed was already too small for three of us, there was no way we could fit another little human in comfortably. So, with only 2 months to go till my due date I started mattress shopping but very quickly got overwhelmed.
That’s where Purple comes in, thank goodness! They offered to send me a king (yay, more space!) mattress in exchange for a review. I agreed, under one condition, if I didn’t like it I would send it back without a review. I didn’t expect that to be the case though, since we have a cushion of theirs, from the egg test, and we all love how awesome it feels! I couldn’t wait to try that same material in a full blown mattress.
You can see our egg test on the cushion here (notice I’m still pregnant in the video!):
Basically the egg test goes to show that if Purple can support an egg without breaking it will support your body perfectly too.
You should have seen us the night our mattress arrived, we were pumped from all the anticipation.
Bonus: They sent it straight to our door!
My husband was super excited it was here but I was worried, the packaging was tiny compared to how big and poofy a mattress should be. Had I misunderstood? Was it just a mattress topper not a mattress?
My husband chuckled and told me not to worry, I was so confused! Looking back I can laugh at the whole thing but that night I was genuinely concerned.
Here’s Corey bringing it inside, 9 month pregnant me wasn’t any help!
We laid the mattress straight on the floor, the way I don’t have to worry about our little ones falling off the bed and getting hurt. It expanded into a full sized king mattress – whew!
Eek! I was giddy and excited to try it out!
Now that we’ve been sleeping on it for 3 months I can honestly say we love it! It’s the perfect balance between medium firm and firm. It did take some adjusting through, the first few weeks I wasn’t so sure about it but they had warned me that that was usual.
“You may have an adjusting period…. Those who are coming from a firm mattress need to learn that the hard bed was a compromise for the good of their back alignment. Purple will take care of their alignment even better AND support it AND comfort their hips; but it may take a little time for their body to UNLEARN how to sleep with compromises. Same story, different tune for those coming to Purple from a soft mattress. They need to adjust to proper alignment AND support AND pressure relief. Their body has gotten used to some bad posture compromises while attaining some amount of sleep. Now they are compromise-free and experiencing NO PRESSURE. Their body might unlearn it all right away. But it may take a couple weeks. Still, they have time to really learn and return it if needed; no pressure.”
It made total sense and after a few weeks my body adjusted to the new bed and now it’s my favorite place to snuggle in night after night! My husband didn’t even notice an adjustment period and fell in love with the bed from night 1.
It’s no surprise that Purple, who started off on Kickstarter, blew way over their funding goals! The quality and pricing just can’t be beat.
