How do you know when it’s time to look for a new mattress? If it’s anything like mine was it ended up with a huge hump in the middle after it molded to our body shapes. Yep time for something new. So began the search.
Let me back up a bit and give you a little bit of back story. Last November my family was rear-ended by a drunk driver, I ended up with 2 broken arms and a crushed heel. I spent almost six months in wheelchair and two more using a walker. So sleep isn’t something that is exactly been something that is coming easily. Back to the present, and I’m currently 26 weeks pregnant. It’s hard to get comfy and we finally decided enough was enough it’s time to get a new bed.
Another problem we are having is that my husband has psoriatic arthritis, which means he’s in pain most of the time so sleep is really important to keep him well. His major pain areas are Hips ( he already needs both hips replaced ), Knees, shoulders, basically all major joints. So we wanted to make sure we found something that gave him the most support with the best comfort.
We started our search and stumbled upon the Bear Mattress and decided this would be the one we wanted to try. I started looking at the website and was impressed with their motto “Recover from your day, every night.” ( Source Bearmattress.com ) This was just what we were looking for. So we decided to give it a shot and ordered. We had the new mattress within 5 days of ordering.
We went with the bundle deal, but make sure you really read what you’re getting because there are extras you can add that are not included in the bundle. With the bundle, you get:
Bed size of your choice (We went with a King)
Bear Mattress Protector – Its waterproof and helps keep you cool with cooling technology. Also, helps to reduce allergens.
Bear Mattress Pillows ( One/two depending on what size of mattress ) Only Available in queen size. Contours to your head and neck shape and also reduces allergens.

First Week Thoughts
My husband absolutely hated it, I don’t mean disliked I mean HATED it. This mattress is firm, a lot firmer than what we had and it was really hard for him to get up off of it. I, on the other hand, was enjoying the firmness. I can’t even feel the bed move when he comes to bed, I was able to convince him to give it at least a 30-day trial.
Second Week Thoughts
I was noticing my back and hip feels a lot better after sleeping and was starting to be able to fall asleep quicker. My husband still wasn’t thrilled but he’d gone from hating to just accept it. Another thing I’d noticed around this time, was his snoring went down dramatically.
Third Week Thoughts
By week three my husband was sleeping a lot better at night and started waking up with a lot less joint pain. He told me, how he actually liked the mattress are is now feeling better during the day. I myself am enjoying the mattress and all the extra space we have now that we upgraded to a King size.
We are now on week four and I couldn’t be happier with the mattress, it doesn’t hold in heat like other mattresses do and the foam supports your joints and back where we needed it most giving us a better sleep every night. I’m really glad we switched. It may take a little while for your body to get used to switching from a regular spring mattress to a foam one. I’d recommend for people with joint issues or pain.
