Life changing mattress
My husband really wanted a firm mattress as he got back pain from the overly soft, lumpy mattress in our old rented house. I was a little unsure about how this mattress would be for me as I have some bony hips and elbows and tend to prefer a softer mattress as I sleep on my side a lot. When the matrress arrived it was thicker and squishier than I expected and our bed had a slatted base so I hoped it would be firm enough for him and soft enough for me. We bought a superking zip and link. Tip! Zip it up before you put it on the bed! The first night I honestly wasn't sure about the mattress and I don't think my husband was either. It was firmer than I would have chosen if I'd tested it out in a show room and I woke up with my side feeling a little overstretched. My husband also woke up with a bit of back ache. We did sleep through the night though and woke up refreshed. I think the discomfort we felt that first night was our bodies realigning with a properly supportive mattress because now (our 4th night) we are completely in love with it. I used to wake up feeling exhausted and had real trouble getting out of bed in the mornings. Now I ping awake at around 6:30am and want to get on with the day. I know that sounds like a cheesy advert but honestly it's true! The other amazing thing is that my husband used to snore all night to the extent I had to wear earplugs. Since we get this mattress he hasn't snored once which is fantastic. I'm wondering if it's because his neck is getting proper support. I would compare the feel of the mattress to being a little like a futon in terms of it does give some pushback resistance on your body which we certainly weren't used to but have quickly adapted to and feel it's better for us. During the ordering process I was advised by the incredibly lovely Cottonsafe staff that I could get a topper if it was really too firm but to hold off until I'd tried it out. I think that was good advice and I really appreciate that they didn't upsell to me at that moment as the toppers for a superking aren't cheap and I don't think we need one. If we did want one in the future I would be happy to buy it because Cottonsafe are a delight to deal with and their products are amazing.
As comfortable as everyone has described. Have had a slipped disc in the past so new beds are not guaranteed to be immediately acceptable to my back, but needed no period of adjustment. 'Nuff said!
Deep green, deep sleep
We loved the ethos, Megan and Jessica are excellent and the Appledoor is very comfortable.
Comfort from the first night
The mattress is incredibly comfy and we didn't need any time to 'get used to it'. It doesn't smell of anything toxic like our previous mattress, just a very natural aroma which dissipates over time. This mattress has significantly improved my chronic back pain. We are delighted with the purchase! Also, so pleased we've supported a local company with values.
Both the Cottonsafe team and the their Appledore mattress are exceptional. My order was a little complicated due to my circumstances, but the team held my hand all the way through it and went above and beyond. The ethos of the company finds its match in the good nature of the employees, as far as I can tell. The mattress is very, very comfortable. Both my partner and I love it, and even though we've had it for more than two weeks now, we still say so every night! I like medium firm, but she likes things a little softer than that: apparently this mattress strikes a perfect middle ground for us. Although labeled medium, It offers more support once you are in the lying position, than what I'd expect from a medium. My hope now is that the mattress lasts 5 years plus. If so, even including 600 pounds of international shipping I had to pay to a courier company to get the mattress to us overseas, this beauty will have cost us under a pound per night. You can't put a price on good sleep, and safety from the toxic chemicals the vast majority of mattresses serve to your lungs during the full third of a lifetime spent in bed. Thank you Cottonsafe. Please keep up the great work. I'm counting on you being there when we next need a mattress!
