Are Online Mattresses Like Eve Worth it?
For as much as we sleep (and I mean all of us, not just my family), we do not spend a lot of time researching and choosing mattresses. Cars? Yes. Movies? Yes. Pizza toppings? Yes. But mattresses? Well, we seem to spend little time choosing mattresses, for something which we spend almost a third of our lives on.
With so much to do and so little time, I am intrigued by the idea of buying a mattress online and having it delivered to my door. These companies even claim to sell better mattresses than you would find in the big-name stores, and at a lower price. So, are they worth it?
What is an online mattress?
The idea is that the middleman is cut out. Most mattresses have a high markup, and that money goes into the salesperson’s pocket. With an online mattress, the company makes the mattress and sells it to you. You pay for it, and one day it arrives at your door. Now, obviously, the mattress is not your traditional mattress; instead of the springs, you have foam.
The mattress is packaged up in a nice handy box, and with more money going to the company who makes the mattress, the quality is better (or so they claim), and the savings are passed onto you (I like that part).
Benefits of a foam mattress
The savings and better technology are all well and good, but are foam mattresses comfortable to sleep on? The answer is a resounding: yes! The problem with spring mattresses (and hey, they had a good run) is that they have points of pressure, where the springs are. With a memory foam mattress, you are supported all over. This is great for people who have bad backs, and you know what? It is also great for people who do not have bad backs. The extra support and comfort are great for your joints and muscles.
Memory foam also means less movement during the night. If you are comfortable, you are not going to toss and turn as much. I like a comfortable night’s sleep, don’t you? When your partner is in bed, you also disturb each other less. I cannot count how many times I have been woken up by the love of my life (not so much at 2 am) going to the bathroom. With a foam mattress, you will sleep like a baby.
Advances in foam mattress technology also mean better climate control. The mattresses are breathable and will not trap the heat or cold air. The result is a comfortable night of temperature controlled sleep. If you have ever been too hot or too cold, then you know what a difference this will make.
What about Eve?
Eve Mattresses contain a lot of foam to support you while you sleep. A supportive base layer makes up most of the mattress, with two extra foam layers on top. The foam combines to stop sinking and to create one of the most breathable mattresses on the market.
The top layer gives much-needed support to your joints and cradles your body. The mattress is also moisture-wicking, which helps to take the mixture from the mattress and dissipate it in the air. No more sweaty, sticky mornings.
So, is it worth it?
I have to say, that buying a mattress is something which I have not really thought about. I have gone to the store, listened to the sales talk, and bought what I thought to be the best mattress in the world, but have I been wrong? I love the idea of buying a mattress from the comfort of my own home, and I love the thought of buying comfort for my own home.
Buying a mattress online really is easy to do, and with the trial periods on offer, you have a long time to try the mattress and return it if you are not completely satisfied. I would recommend checking it out.
