@SertaMattresses #iComfort Insight

When I moved, I decided to splurge on a new mattress.  I probably spend a third of my life sleeping (I'm a 10pm-6am kind of gal!) so I felt it was important to invest in a good bed.  On my old (cheap) pillow top mattress, I'd been tossing and turning for a while.  I was taking melatonin to help me become drowsy enough to fall asleep.  But I was waking up exhausted no matter how long I slept; my quality of sleep was severely lacking.

I polled my friends on Facebook for advice, and I got a ton of recommendations.  Many steered me towards the Tempurpedic and SleepNumber mattresses, but after reading reviews I just wasn't convinced to spend that amount of money.  I did a lot of research into Serta's iComfort line, and when I went to a store to test out mattresses, the employee told me that it's really taking off in sales.  (The store also sold Tempurpedic mattresses.)

I chose the Serta iComfort Insight, which is on the lower end of the spectrum for iComfort.  It's listed as a firm mattress, and it's smaller than their others, but it has the same warranty and guarantee.  I tested it in-store, and it felt pretty good at the time.

Fast forward to now, after nearly three weeks with the Serta iComfort Insight.  At first, I'll admit I thought it felt a little it too firm compared to what I was used to... but then I fell asleep and woke up feeling completely rested.  In fact, every night I've slept on my Insight, I've awoken feeling wide awake and refreshed.  I even had my Mom test it out overnight; I liked that I couldn't feel her move while she slept (another benefit of memory foam), and she felt like she rested better on it than her mattress at home.  I've completely stopped taking melatonin to fall asleep.  I simply don't need it anymore!  I'm so happy I made the switch, because I feel like the morning energy makes me more inclined to work out, start the day off right at work, and have an overall better day.

My only complaint?  The store I purchased from didn't have one of those cute little sheep plushies to give me.  Ha!  :)

If you do get a memory foam mattress, it's important to get a new "box spring" for it... that means a completely flat platform, essentially.  The mattress needs that kind of support.  Also, since memory foam mattresses could grow mold if excessive moisture seeps in, a mattress protector is something I'd recommend too.  I actually have a mattress protector and (at Mom's insistence) a padded mattress pad.  That way my mattress is safe from sweat, water, etc.

P.S.  Memory foam mattresses are very heavy.  If you ever move them (i.e. a UHaul), you need to keep them FLAT, not turned on one side.  This is advice from my professional movers, who were happy I waited to receive my new mattress until after I moved. :)
