New Puffy Mattress Extra Plush 14″ Puffy Royal

By | Mattress | No Comments

One of the more plush mattresses that comes in a box now has an even plusher version – The Puffy Royal Mattress. This is the newest mattress from Puffy and like the original and the Puffy Lux, they are made up of all foam. However, the Puffy Royal has some features that set it apart.

If you ever tried a Puffy and found even the Lux too firm, the Puffy Royal will be the best choice. Those who really love to sink into their mattress and want that body contouring and plush feel will appreciate the softness without the heat. Keep reading to find out how Puffy has addressed this common concern.

The Puffy Royal – Puffy’s Plushest Mattress

On the higher end price wise, the Royal is a luxury bed. If you compare it to other boxed brands it might seem premium priced. Yet it isn’t pricey when compared to similar brands. Puffy has added several features to the Royal that make it a great choice for someone who wants the softness of a Tempur-Pedic without the price tag.

One important point to note is that The Puffy Royal and all Puffy mattresses all come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

One of the most difficult qualities about a more plush bed is that they often have more memory foam. That means it get softer as your body heat reacts with the foam. Your body heat then gets trapped and builds up in the indent your body creates. Puffy has addressed this concern with the Royal and the physical differences in the foam set it apart from the original and Lux.


Top 3 Features of the Puffy Royal Mattress

  1. It’s thicker – a full 14 inches deep!! Love the look of height on your bed or platform bed frame? This is it!
  2. There’s a breathable layer to cool down the memory foam. That allows more airflow than the other two Puffy mattresses and so you’ll sleep cooler.
  3. Extra support on your low back. With 5 cloud zones, your head, neck, shoulders, and feet will feel softest. There will be a little more support at your lower back. This means you won’t get that dip near your back might throw your spine out of alignment.

Is The Puffy Royal Mattress for You?

If you want to skip the store and buy online, plus you find most mattresses aren’t soft enough for you, the Royal will likely be a good fit.

As with all Puffy mattresses you get a 101 night sleep trial. Sleep on it in your own bedroom and see what you think. New mattresses typically take about a month to break in (your body is used to the mattress you’ve been sleeping on for years, even if it’s past its prime now), leaving you plenty of time to decide what you think.

One last nice touch with the Puffy Royal is a removable stain resistant cover. Still, we recommend that you don’t skip a mattress protector.

If it’s not for you, know that Puffy donates returns to help communities around the country.

Coop’s New Reversible Mattress Topper Is Firm on One Side Soft on the Other

By | Bedding, Mattress Topper | No Comments

Coop Home Goods, the online company known for helping you find the perfect pillow for you, recently introduced a new 4″ thick reversible Mattress Topper. Called the Flip because you can switch between two support levels: firm or soft.

This is the first mattress topper they’ve added to their collection of sleep related products.

Most people buy a mattress topper to solve a specific sleep problem, because it’s easier and less costly than buying a new mattress. It also helps you extend the life of your mattress.

One of the biggest complaints or top reason a mattress gets returned or people don’t like their mattress, is because of the feel. In most cases, the complaint is that the mattress is  either too soft or too firm. The Flip is perfect if you have this problem. Or, if you have a guest room (or Airbnb) you can change the feel to fit different preferences.

What we love most about Coop is how they make quality products and stand behind them (even bedding) with a generous sleep trial and warranty. It’s a brand you can trust.

Airweave Mattress

Airweave Mattress – a Firm, Lightweight Bed that Sleeps Cool

By | Mattress | No Comments

If you’ve been looking at bed in a box mattresses for a while, you’ll see they’re easy to mix up. There are so many different brands and names that it’s tough to know which one. That’s why, at Unbox Mattress, we appreciate a unique bed. Airweave mattress is one of those beds.

Are you one of those people who likes sleeping on the floor more than sleeping on a mattress? This might be the right mattress for you! It’s made in Japan, a country famous for more firm mattresses. If you’ve ever lived or traveled there you may have adjusted to a firmer bed or futon.

Airweave mattress gets very high reviews from people with back pain or with severe allergies.

5 Reasons Airweave Mattress is Unlike Any Other Bed

1. Breathable. It’s made mostly of air.

Like the Newton Baby mattress, Airweave is lightweight because it’s essentially made of a polymer that comes in blocks. Then a pad and a cover. Very simple design that you can breath through because it’s mostly air.

inside an Airweave mattress

2. Lightweight and easy to move (goes back in the box).

Instead of coming rolled up in a box, Airweave comes in 3 flat panels. You can assemble and disassemble it quickly. One person can move it on their own. A king size Airweave weighs less than 90 lbs.

3. It’s a truly firm bed.

Most mattresses give out over time and become less firm. It starts going down where you sleep. Not the Airweave. It will hold up and stay firm.

If really firm isn’t right for you but the other qualities of this bed are, then choose the Airwave Mattress Advanced that has a softer pillow top.

4. It sleeps cool.

Despite what marketing messages there are about cooling gel or cooler fabrics, most memory foam sleeps hot. Foam naturally gets softer when it gets warm (and your body heat is enough to do that). Airweave has no memory foam in it. In addition, it doesn’t have airflow and that means you won’t sleep hot.

5. Easy to Clean.

You can literally wash the inside of your mattress with water or put it in the shower.

6. Hypoallergenic.

If you have severe allergies that interfere with your sleep, get this bed.  The Airweave mattress is incredible.

7. Perfect if a standard mattress doesn’t work for your home or bedroom.

Narrow hallways, staircase, small spaces (like an RV) or doors that won’t fit a regular bed? You can get an Airweave in, easy.

8. Lasts a long, long time.

With no foam there’s less likelihood that your bed will wear as quickly and get divets.

9. Ships free to the US, but also China, Japan and Taiwan.

What other mattress ships free to countries outside of the US? Airweave was born in Japan and out of the Japanese tradition of simple, minimalist design. They have factories in the US and Asia.

10. Has a simple, clean design that is thinner than most beds, at 8.5 inches thick.

The Airweave mattress sleeps very cool thanks to the natural airflow in the airfiber material. The company has conducted research showing the difference in core body temperature when sleeping on airweave vs memory foam. It shows core body temp lowers faster which means you stay in a deep sleep state for a longer period of time on the Airweave.

  • Thickness: 2 layers of 3.9″ airfiber® (7.8″ total), with cover: 8.5″
  • Cushion: Polyethylene 100%
  • Outer Cover: Polyester 100%
  • Inner Cover: Modacrylic 60%, Glass Fiber 40%

Sleep trial is 100 days and Airweave has a 10 year warranty.

Arizona charity that accepts mattress donation

Donate Mattress Phoenix – Mattress Charity Expands to Arizona

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

Looking to donate your bed in a box mattress to a charity? Adopt a Bed, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, now has pick up service in Arizona. Areas served: Maricopa County which includes Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe and Scottsdale.

If you have a mattress return from a bed in a box brand, it’s usually like new — usually only 100 days old or less. To get a full refund on most boxed mattresses companies will leave it up to the customer to find a charity to donate your bed to.

It can be challenging to find a charity that will accept these beds or any who provide a free pick up service. Without charities that accept these mattresses, they may end up being thrown away (sent to the landfill).

Have a mattress to donate? You can request a pick up.

Newton Baby Debuts New Twin Size Mattress Protector and Weighted Blanket

By | Bedding | No Comments

Newton Baby (link goes to our Newton baby mattress review) recently came out with two new products: a Twin Mattress Pad and Weighted Blanket. Up until now the company only carried products for babies and kids. Now, with the the new weighted blanket, they have a product for adults too.

Free shipping and returns on both of these items.

Newton Baby Weighted Blankets – Not for Babies

The weighted blanket requires a minimum weight of 60lbs so it’s designed for adults and older kids. It has a quilted outer cover that is permanently embedded with copper threads. This may be the first weighted blanket we’ve seen with copper. There are wellness benefits of copper and it naturally helps eliminate odor causing bacteria.

Because being a parent can be stressful, the weighted blanket helps calm your nerves and help you fall asleep faster and deeper. The interested part is that Newton Baby addresses not just the calming affects of a weighted blanket but the heat factor. Because they’re heavy, they are usually hot to sleep under.

True to their brand, these weighted blankets are breathable. Made of cotton and embedded with copper since copper is a natural conductor of heat. That helps transfers heat away from the body for a more comfortable temperature.

Comes in an off-white color to match any decor. Free shipping and a 100 night trial means Newton stands behind their products. 2 year limited warranty.

The weighted blanket comes in two sizes:
48 x 72 inches (for twin or full size beds)
60 x 80 inches (for queen and king size beds)

Choose from one of 4 weighs. How do you know what weight to get? It’s based on your weight. Weighted blankets should typically be 7-10% of your body weight to receive the optimal benefits.

As of now, Newton Baby doesn’t sell a twin size mattress, but we’re going to guess that there may be one coming in the future. That’s good news because Newton is so unique and we hope it’s not just for babies for long!

5 Little Monkeys Mattress Adds New Queen Size Beds

By | Mattress | No Comments

Just like their other Sleep Systems, the queen size comes with a FREE waterproof Mattress Protector and a FREE pillow. Everything is the same just BIGGER!

How to Make a Soft Memory Foam Mattress Firmer

By | Mattress | No Comments

Have you been thinking, my memory foam mattress is too soft? It’s time to do something about it and get the sleep you need. Note that there are affiliate links in this post.

5 Ways to Make a Soft Memory Foam Mattress Firmer

Get a mattress topper

Latex toppers are a great choice. They usually have holes that allow for air flow and separate you and your body from your bed. You can get a denser non memory foam topper to add firmness. We recommend the firm option from Nestled brand latex mattress toppers.

Change your foundation

Firm foundation, solid like a bungee board, plywood or the floor. You can even put the plywood between the mattress and box springs or base.

Keep your room cooler

Consider a bed cooler or a BedJet if you have the budget. The more you can disperse body heat the better because the warmer the memory foam gets the more it sinks in and feels softer.

Flip your bed over

Most memory foam beds have softer memory foam on top with denser foam on the bottom. Even though they’re made to sleep with the soft side up, try switching it up. Sleep on the bottom layer.

Buy a Firmer Bed

Sometimes your mattress is too soft no matter what you do. It might be time to invest in a new bed. There are financing options available for an affordable monthly fee. Consider how much sleep loss affects the quality of your life and what it means to wake up refreshed instead of dragging through your day.

You may not realize how much your bed affects you until you get a new one that you love.

Flippable beds
Consider a flippable bed made so you can sleep on either side, depending on your firmness preference. Beds like the Layla mattress are specifically made to be flipped. So is the affordable Nest Flip.

Adjustable beds
Look at Adjustable beds that have layers that can be changed for a different feel. Ecosa mattress has 3 layers you can move to create the firmness level you want.

Dreamcloud is another firmer bed choice.

Brooklyn Bedding Plank is firm also.
