My husband and I recently moved into a new condo and one of the essential items we decided to buy “when we got there” was a new mattress. Our journey to our new digs was a long and curvy one, so along the way we rented furnished apartments or stayed with welcoming family and friends.
Although there were many fun times as we traveled from pillar to post, unfortunately, we slept on a Rogue’s Gallery of pain inducing mattresses, the bedding equivalent of “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” After having endured the worst, we embarked on a hands-on and heine-down search for the perfect sleeping platform.
We knew we did not want a traditional mattress and box spring set-up — it was important to us to explore some organic mattress, (chemical free) options. But the search included just about everything — memory foam, TempurPedic, wool, inflatable, some kind of ‘Number’ thing mattress and then we found it: the Savvy…nirvana:)
We were lucky enough to be offered to try Savvy’s Queen Serenity Mattress gratis, and we jumped on it.
After a phone consultation with Gopal, a very knowledgeable and thoughtful representative, we ordered a natural latex mattress that’s comprised of the following 3 layers: Dunlop Firm on the bottom; Dunlop Medium (split); and Medium & Soft Talalay top split (half of each firmness). These layers all rest on a 5-inch foundation and are wrapped in a 100 percent organic cotton & wool, zippered casement.
The split approach allows for customization of firmness, according to an individual’s personal preferences. Hence, my husband’s side of the mattress is a bit firmer than mine. And we don’t feel an opening in the split area of the mattress. The material is so thick, it sort of melds together nicely. Our bed rocks! No more tossing and turning. No more neck or back pain. Just sweet bliss – all night long.
By the way, the company policy is — if you’re not satisfied, you can return the layer and exchange it for another; (there’s a small fee to cover delivery). And the mattress comes with a 20-year warranty.
Oh, and a little side note. I was a little leery when I learned that it would be “curbside” delivery, but that went surprisingly smoothly. The delivery guy and my building’s super rang my apartment doorbell and before I knew it, we were in! Having seen a video on their site explaining how to assemble the layers, we put it together in a flash, it literally took no more than 15 minutes or so.
Our company representative, Gopal, was expert and adept at providing us the info we needed in order to make a sound decision. This was not your standard box spring and mattress set up so the unfamiliarity made me apprehensive. But my advice is, don’t be fearful. The degree of comfort and sound sleep you’ll experience are well worth the journey. Gopal held my hand and guided me patiently through every step. And for this we are most grateful. Sweet dreams are made of this…
As mentioned above, Savvy Rest generously provided us with a complimentary mattress. In turn, we agreed to provide a no-strings-attached Tried and True Review.
