When we moved into the bungalow we threw out our old mattress and got a new one, so when I was contacted by FUÜM Mattress' a while back to see if we would like to review a new one, we didn't see the need. However, in a passing conversation with our neighbour, he said he could do with a new one. So after asking FUÜM if it would be OK if someone else helped to review the mattress, they very kindly agreed.
I've spoken about my neighbours before on the blog. However, for anyone who isn't aware, they are a retired couple, one of whom has quite high pain levels due to many different ailments. Much like it is for myself and Ash a good nights sleep is everything.
It is probably worth noting at this point, that while I speak about our neighbours, it is actually only home to one of them, as they both have their own bungalows, with one coming to stay as and when. I say this because otherwise, the conversation I had with the lady of next door would make no sense. She, at home, has a special orthopaedic mattress and suffered quite badly when staying next door, due to the lack of support the previous mattress offered.
With this in mind, I don't think any of us were quite such what would happen when the FUÜM Mattress was actually used; would it help her? Would it offer them both a comfortable nights sleep? Only getting it on the bed and them sleeping on it would tell.
What makes FUÜM Mattresses different?
FUÜM Mattresses are uniquely made. At the base, you will find an ultra-resilient foam base layer, while yes this is a high-density foam, it also contours to your body as you sleep, no matter what position you find most comfortable. Above this is an airflow gel layer, which is built in to help keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Next is a layer of memory foam, which is medium firm, this is going to keep you well supported and relieve pressure points. The top layer is a micro-quilted intelligent fibre, with its 3D cross-structure layer, it helps create an airspace between you the memory foam.
What did the neighbours think of their FUÜM Mattress?
After we had got the FUÜM Mattress onto the bed and unwrapped, we left the lovely people next door to it, allowing them to remake their bed and await it being ready to use. According to the FUÜM Mattress website, you can actually use it straight away. However, we did suggest leaving it for a while to let it expand as much as possible.
The next morning I woke up to a box of chocolates, bunch of flowers and a letter having been left on the back porch. Apparently, both had the best nights sleep they had been afforded in a long time, in fact, the lady of next door said hers was even better than at home and she would very much like one for herself.
Of course over the coming weeks, we checked back in with them both to see how they were feeling and both seemed to have nothing but praise for the FUÜM Mattress. So from this small neck of the woods, it gets a huge thumbs up for offering a great nights sleep. Now apparently just one more is needed for the lady's house.
If you fancy trying a FUÜM Mattress for yourself, they can, of course, be bought from their website with anything between a single and a super king in size being available.
