This Mattress Is Going To Spoil All Other Mattresses For You
Get this if you want your "I woke up like dis" face to be *flawless*. AKA, your beauty sleep.
Water and sleep. The two most overwhelmingly basic beauty secrets. You’re probably aware that perpetually getting less than six to eight hours of sleep each night as an adult will have your skin a mess, body sluggish, and mood off, right?
We typically are stuck in one of two moods: sleep is for the weak or we need to sleep for a week. Now, we’re good about telling you which beauty products to invest in, but we don’t often mention one of the most crucial elements of looking gorgeous. But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. If 90% of a good selfie is your skin, then 90% of how good your skin looks is the quality of your sleep.
Normally when the internet goes crazy over a new anything we just chill and wait. But not in this case. After hearing about what was pegged as the world’s most comfortable mattress, we had to try one of these babies out and let you guys know if it was worth trading in your old mattress. There are other bed-in-a-box companies, of course, but we couldn’t not try a mattress that has over 100,000 reviews online raving about it.
So let’s talk innovation first. Tuft & Needle is an American-made company (yay!) that uses non-toxic materials for their mattresses – which come in a super compact box – and is radically revolting against the conventional mattress game by refusing to use outdated materials that aren’t optimal for sleeping now that we have new technology and scientific research.
You know those fancy memory foam and classic mattresses with the springs? They have each flaws whether it’s due to lack of bounce or pressure or lack of pressure relief. Which is why instead of sticking to the norm and depending on some monstrous marketing strategy to sell a halfway decent product, Founders JT and Daehee went the innovative route and came up with they call T&N Adaptive® Foam. So it’s not latex and it’s not memory foam. It’s whole damn different category.
TBH, when we read online that the adaptive foam would essentially adapt to our body when we got in bed, we were a bit skeptical. It just seems too good to be true, right? Other mattresses have made this promise and have duped us. Turns out they weren’t lying. The internet got it right this time. In the past it’s taken a few nights or even weeks to get accustomed to a new mattress, but we instantly felt the difference with this one. No pressure points on the neck, and as stomach sleepers with constant neck problems, that’s amazing to say the least.
Another thing to note is that there are less layers in Tuft & Needle’s mattress than every other mattress – only two – which means you don’t get as hot when sleeping. So if you’re a sweater at night, this is definitely something to look into.
You know how other mattress companies make you choose “firm” or “soft” or something in between and you’re like, “Um, not sure.” Well, Tuft and Needle doesn’t make you choose because their mattress adapts to you to give you the right amount of firmness and support. The only thing you have to select is what size you want. It’s like express mattress shopping.
Now, let’s talk money and not get weird about it, k? If you know us by now, you know we adore direct-to-consumer brands. These are the brands who actually care about who’s buying their stuff. They forgo selling at traditional retailers like department stores and sell directly to you so you don’t have to pay retail markup. Because the truth is, mattresses aren’t worth four figures. Those mattresses that cost upwards of a grand? Overpriced. Period. You’re not paying for value even though you think you are. You’re paying extra hundreds of dollars so the retailer can make a bigger profit. And if you buy in person? You’re just paying for the salesperson’s commission.
We don’t know about you, but we like to pay for true value. If something is actually worth more money, we’re willing to dish out the extra cash. But we refuse to pay purely for gimmicks and that’s why we stick to D2C brands, and we think you should too. Tuft & Needle also has a 100-day trial period for your mattress so that means you can try it out for three full months and if it’s not your thing, you can send it back, no pressure. They believe in their product that much and that’s a philosophy that we can certainly back.
