TOPIC:

Break in period? 01 Aug 2014 07:24 #1

Hi,
New member and i'm sure this topic has been discussed many times. We just received the Saatva Luxury Firm mattress and slept on it only one night. For myself I slept fine, my wife thought it was too firm. Saatva said to give it a couple of weeks to break it in. Is this normal? This mattress replaced a mattress we got from Jordan's Furniture here in the New England area. The matreess we had was their version of the tempurpedic. Only bought it 4 years ago but I weigh 280 and lately feel like I have been sleeping in a peanut butter sandwich. :)

The Saatva seemes very well made and I was told I could replace it for the softer one but would have to pay the shipping costs which I think is fair. I just don't want to rush my decision. Never thought I would join a mattress forum :lol:

Hi 2bsticks,

Yes ... there will be a break in period with any new mattress and it can also take some time to adjust to a new sleeping surface although it will vary with the mattress and the person (see post #2 here ).

While in some cases it can take longer ... it's usually a good idea to give any new mattress at least two weeks before considering any changes.

I would also be a little cautious at your weight with a softer mattress because of potential alignment issues.

Thanks for the reply Phonenix, I feel better :)

What is you take on a mattress topper, I'm thinking down the road, if my wife still feels it's too firm. I see they make different types, material and thickness etc. Also would the sheets still fit putting one of these on a 14" mattress.
