I didn’t used to think that what kind of mattress you had mattered. I was (delusionally) under the impression that you could just have any old mattress and it wouldn’t make much of a difference. And so, for the past 5.5 years, my husband and I spent many a sleepless night on a hard uncomfortable mattress. That we got off Craigslist. Yup. (And ew.) We tried what we could to make it more comfortable by adding a 4-inch thick foam pad from Costco. 4 INCHES. And yet, we could still feel that horrible 28909043XXX firm mattress beneath us. Very much a Princess and the Pea scenario. And yet, we suffered through.
Now, all of this changed when I decided to work with Loom & Leaf, which is sub-company of Saatva Mattresses. I decided that upon moving into our new house, we needed a new mattress. An adult mattress that was not bought off of Craigslist. And most importantly, a COMFORTABLE mattress. Loom & Leaf made all of my mattress dreams come true. And boy, did my dream comes true.
* I was given a free mattress by Loom and Leaf for this post and use affiliate links, however, all opinions are my own. See my full disclosure policy HERE*
I decided to go with their Relaxed Firm model in a queen size, because it was touted as being soft, supportive, made of delectable thick gel memory foam, and eco-friendly. And holy mother of pearl, they were right on all accounts. This is what happened the moment the movers brought the mattress upstairs:
Yep. It was pure bliss and love at first flop. (Excuse the mess and no bedframe – we had just moved in!) I knew immediately that this mattress and I were going to become (very) fast friends.
It got even better when our new bedframe came in. Now we were feeling like real adults!
Loom & Leaf mattresses are made in the USA and the company donates to several charities, which is pretty awesome, and use medical-grade gel to keep you cool while you sleep – perfect for the hot summer nights we’ve been having in the PNW!
Our previous mattress didn’t have handles and it was the WORST. Lugging a 50 lb spring mattress through 4 moves was always a huge pain. Luckily Loom & Leaf mattresses come with handy soft suede-ish handles to make moving a breeze. Plus since this mattress doesn’t use springs, it’s so light and easy to manuever. Definite score!
My favorite part though has to be the material itself. It’s SO soft and silky smooth breathable organic cotton that is just so soft to the touch. Honestly, whenever I wash the sheets I make sure to flop down on the bare mattress and just take a tiny nap 🙂
The Loom & Leaf mattress is so soft (yet supportive) that there’s no longer any need for any additional foam pads – we just sleep right on the mattress! We’ve slept so deeply since night 1 – which is a feat in itself, since it usually takes me a week or so to get used to a new bed. Not so with this mattress! It was instant dreamland 🙂
^^ Nate and Oliver really love it, as you can tell 😉
Seriously though, all of our pets are all over this mattress all the time! They love sleeping with us at night and there have definitely been multiple cuddle parties going on while we watch Netflix.
I used to think that your mattress didn’t matter, but boy was I wrong. You need a good, soft, supportive mattress in your life, folks. Don’t make the same mistake I did. A good mattress helps you fall asleep faster, deeper, and longer. It supports your joints and bones. It keeps you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. It keeps you from feeling your partner rolling over at night with even weight distribution. And when you have all of those things, your quality of life really does improve! Now I wake up more comfortable and rested and I’m ready to tackle the day instead of dragging myself out of bed with aching hips and back. Your mattress matters!
If you’re interested in getting a better night’s sleep, you can check out the Loom & Leaf website and read up on their Relaxed Firm and Firm mattresses. You really can’t go wrong! I looked around at a LOT of different mattress companies before deciding on L&L by Saatva. I’ve done the research so you don’t have to! They offer one of the best mattresses for the best price and it couldn’t be more awesome.
Mumford wishes you sweet dreams and happy mattress shopping! Thanks so much again to Loom & Leaf and Saatva for the amazing mattress that helps me sleep so much better!
