For those who don’t know (which is probably most, if not all of you), I suffer from lower back pain due to a spine condition called spondylolisthesis. There’s not a single moment during my day when I don’t feel at least some type of discomfort (or excruciating pain) in my lower back (specifically, my L-5, S-1 and S-2). Over the years, the issue with my lower back has contributed to pain felt in my upper back, shoulders, neck and radiating pain down my the backs of my legs. In order to keep the pain at bay, I have to switch my position regularly and take pain medication. That said, my lower back pain has made falling asleep and staying asleep rather difficult.
I’ve purchased three mattresses in my adult life. All of them claimed to be ideal for back pain sufferers, but none of them helped me. Enter the Big Fig mattress…
I first heard about Big Fig on Instagram. One of my fellow blogger-friends shared her experience sleeping on a Big Fig and I was curious. I did a little research of my own and I felt cautiously optimistic that this might be the ideal bed for me. So, when I was given the opportunity to try one in exchange for a review and some promotion, I jumped at the chance!
I was admittedly very nervous about trading in my two year-old department store mattress for a Big Fig first and foremost because I never got the chance to try one out to see how comfortable it was. But, I stepped out on faith and hoped and prayed I would like it once it arrived.
Had I known two years ago that I’d have the best sleep of my life on a Big Fig mattress, I would have never bought a department store mattress!
Sleeping on my Big Fig mattress is like sleeping on a cloud, but a supportive cloud that doesn’t make you hot when you sleep (like many memory foam mattresses). Big Fig is made for larger bodies (the name Big Fig comes from “bigger figure”), so it’s a plus size-friendly mattress, but can work for anyone of any size. Some of my favorite features of the Big Fig are:
- ThermoGel cooling technology which regulates temperature
- 1600 pocketed coil springs to support the neck and back
- three layers of high density poly foam for a firm cushion
- foundation supports 5x the weight of a typical foundation
- And, all mattresses come with a 20 year warranty!
If you’re on the market for a new mattress (or yours just doesn’t cut it anymore), do yourself a favor and consider investing in a Big Fig mattress. I promise you won’t be sorry!
They even make their mattresses in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen King and California King. And, best of all, the process to order a mattress along with their white glove delivery service couldn’t be smoother. From ordering to sleeping, Big Fig gets it right.
They’re currently having a holiday sale for $199 off the cost of a mattress and white glove delivery with code WHITEGLOVE. Why not start 2019 with a good night’s sleep? New year, new you, right?
