Imagine both being able to lie on the exact right comfort level for your body. On the same mattress.

Well, it sat in our entrance way for months while we decided what to do with it.Andrew finally had the great idea of salvaging the materials inside the pillowtop (in case we ever wanted a topper for our current mattress) and dismantling the rest to go to a local recycling yard. So, we totally ripped the mattress apart! I took photos of what we found inside to share with you.I also figured out very quickly why the mattress was sagging as soon as we had it all open.

So, you’re on the look out for a brand new mattress. Have you been to a mattress store lately? Perhaps you’ve been perusing the internet to see what mattress in a box prices are like?If you have answered yes to those questions, you will have noticed there is a major discrepancy between the prices for mattresses in stores and the prices for mattresses online: the price you pay for a mattress online is much cheaper than in store. Often, mattresses sold on line are just a fraction of the price you would pay if you bought one in store.For example, DreamCloud, an online hybrid mattress designed with luxury in mind, retails for about a quarter of the price of a mattress with similar features you would find in a store.Why is that?! Is it that the online mattresses are junk and cheap? Not at all. Lets take a look at what I think are the top three reasons.
What is a bed in a box? It sounds strange doesn’t it! The short answer is, it’s a mattress that comes rolled up in a box, which you then open, let expand, and sleep on!I think it’s name is a play on that classic children’s’ toy: the Jack in a Box, which springs out of its box to give giggly children a surprise. Mattresses in a box tend to pop out of their boxes and start expanding quickly, so that’s why it draws the comparison. Further down the post, you’ll see a fun action video of a mattress expanding.

According to USA Today, the online mattress business went from “nothing to a $1.5 billion dollar business in the blink of an eye”.

A lot happens while we are asleep, we don’t simply shut down, paused to resume action the next day when we wake up. Sleep isn’t even one entity: it has four stages.

The Linenspa Memory Foam and Innerspring Hybrid mattress is currently the #2 best selling mattress on Amazon, and stands out in the sea of mostly memory foam that dominates the top 12.

The best room temperature for sleeping… is this something you have spent time thinking about? Or do you just hop into bed each night, no matter what the season, and hope for the best? Perhaps you’ve gone to bed nice and cozy, only to wake up sweating a few hours later and aren’t sure why. Maybe you do everything in your lifestyle to help you get good sleep, but still wake up feeling tired. Could the temperature of the room be playing a part? The answer is yes, it absolutely could.
This post is all about, all latex mattresses! They are the least common of the bunch, and are outsold by thousands of units by other mattress types. Sure, latex is used a lot in hybrid mattresses, or as a mattress topper. But actual mattresses made just of the stuff? Not so much. Does that mean you should write them off as being no good? Absolutely not. In fact, after researching different mattress materials and how they perform, I think latex mattresses are highly underrated.
