I have had my Big Fig Mattress for a couple of years now, and I am always reminded that it is the best thing to happen to my sleep routine when I travel for work or go on vacation—there isn’t one hotel bed that has ever come close in comparison…and that’s saying quite a bit! But since I have been sleeping on my Big Fig for a while now, I expect to sleep wonderfully every single night. When my mom came to visit me in Chicago a year ago, she slept on my mattress, and she woke up with so many questions about where I got it because it was the best sleep she had gotten…in a long time. Sleeping on the Big Fig has set a high standard for my sleep routine, and while my old mattress wasn’t the best, I was shocked to learn that my mom was also not sleeping very well on her current bed. So I asked my mom about her mattress…
“My old mattress was a pillow cushion mattress with a foam top that I spent a lot of money on,” My mom said. “I thought because I spent a lot of money on it, it would be ideal for me. I would get back and neck pain every morning. If I wouldn’t have known how good the Big Fig was, I would have slept on my old mattress for the rest of my life because I didn’t know any better. I thought maybe I was sleeping funny.”
Now, if you know my mom, you know that she doesn’t put up with any BS…not even from a mattress. So I was shocked to learn that she was just going to settle for a regular, one-size-fits-all mattress, while blaming her self for “sleeping funny.”
When Christmas rolled around last year, I passed up buying my mom another piece of jewelry and I decided to step up and get my mom a Big Fig Mattress
. If you have never heard of Big Fig Mattress, it’s the first mattress built for a bigger figure. When I found a mattress that was made for my body, I was ecstatic—and the Big Fig didn’t dissapoint. While the Big Fig was a game-changer in my life, it is quite the investment, so I decided to finance it through one of the many options
Big Fig offers on its website. The financing process was so easy, and I was even able to finance the mattress with 0% interest. I’m just a couple of payments away from paying it off completely!
My mom has been sleeping like a queen for a couple of months now, so I asked her what she thought now that she has a Big Fig Mattress
of her own.
“I no longer wake up with back aches,” she said. “The mattress is the perfect combination of firm and soft. I love that the firmness keeps me from feeling the person next to me move or get out of bed in the middle of the night, but its still soft enough to be extremely comfortable.”
She also said that the delivery of the mattress was so easy and efficient, and that the delivery personnel even took her old mattress and disposed of it for her. If you’re wondering if I surprised her by getting the mattress into her room—without her knowing—on Christmas morning, I didn’t. (BUT I THOUGHT ABOUT IT) Instead, I put my purchase confirmation of the Big Fig in a card for her to open on Christmas morning so that she could schedule the delivery time that worked best for her!
“My bedroom is my favorite place to be, and it’s so important that my bed provides a safe and comfortable place for me to rest and relax,” my mom said. “And my Big Fig
has done just that.”
While my mom’s favorite qualities of the bed are the balance between firm and soft, some of the qualities I really love about my Big Fig are:
Out of all the gifts I have given to my mom, whether it be for Christmas or Mother’s Day, my best gift has to have been the Big Fig
. I am so happy that it’s a gift she can use every single night, and I rest easy knowing that she is getting the sleep she needs to be at her best every day.
If you are thinking about what to get your mom for Mother’s Day or gifting a Big Fig Mattress
for any occasion, I highly suggest it. Like I said, even if you don’t want to put down a big chunk of money, financing is always an option, and I found that it was the best for me!
