Have you ever been mattress shopping? It can feel super weird, right?

Evan and I experienced this a few years ago. Fun fact: our first several years of marriage were spent in a full bed. We’re tiny people, so it was okay. But at a certain point, we felt like adults and decided to upgrade to a Queen. (Which all our friends thought was hilarious.)

We casually strolled into our local MattressFirm not really knowing what we wanted – except we knew we were not spending $3,000 on a mattress. We tried out pillow-tops and spring mattresses, soft & firm, and too many pillows.

While I was feeling lots of buyer’s anxiety, my husband (being the perfect millennial) was searching on Amazon for the best mattresses, too. What he realized is that MUCH cheaper mattresses had very similar components to the memory-foam ones in the store, even the Tempur-Pedic options upwards of $2,000.

Actual layers in the much cheaper option!

 

At about a tenth of the cost, we decided to give it a try. Just two days later (hooray Amazon Prime!), our wonderful mattress arrived at our door- vacuum-sealed & rolled up like a burrito. After releasing it and letting it settle for a couple of days, we put it on our bed and have never looked back!!

Why We Love the Zinus Memory Foam Mattress*:

1.  You literally sink into this the moment you lie down. Not too far that you feel smothered. Just the right amount – like a hug. ❤

2.  It’s not bouncy in that annoying way spring mattresses are. This also alleviates pain points and supports your whole body.

3.  The cover is super soft! (We, embarrassingly enough, slept on it without sheets the first few nights because our queen-sized ones hadn’t arrived and we couldn’t wait.) Wasn’t even a big deal.

4.  It comes with a 10-year warranty just like all those fancy mattresses!

5. You can zip off the cover and wash it!

6.  We’ve had 0 problems within the past 2 years, and we know others who have had it over 5 years with no issues.

7.  Also, did I mention it is just SO. DANG. CHEAP.

 

It comes in:

  • Twin
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King
  • 6 inch
  • 8 inch
  • 10 inch (what we have)
  • 12 inch

 

 

This is hands-down the best purchase we’ve made in YEARS, and I’ve kind of become an evangelist for the mattress – to my friends, my parents, my coworkers. My coworker recently purchased it and was late to the office the next day. She came directly to me and said, “Brennan. I couldn’t get out of bed. My plans for this weekend are now to lie in bed.” 

It really is that good, and it saves you so much money.  I feel that everyone should know! 

 

So if you are considering upgrading a mattress,  I feel sure you can find the one that’s right for you!

      Hi Deana!

      I apologize for my late reply. It doesn’t look like Zinus has a twin XL but I found a great one on Amazon that is currently on sale. While I haven’t purchased this one personally, it has thousands of great reviews –

      Are you college shopping? I remember looking for twin XL items years ago!

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Brennan

  1. I think my mom had one of these mattresses, and she loved it. It was just a twin, but it held up really well. We had a metal frame for it and I think it was 8 inches. The mattress, not the frame. She couldn’t feel the frame which is awesome. I had a Casper, that I eventually could start feeling the frame through which caused a lot of problems for my hip. I think if I get a mattress in the future I want a memory foam one for sure, but I also want to make sure that it’s environmentally sustainable.

      Glad to hear it! This has held up really well for us, and I’m continually surprised by how amazing it is given the price. Environmental concerns are definitely important. Thanks for weighing in!

  2. Would you say it’s soft or firm? I typically like a firmer mattress so I’m apprehensive to try anything I’d sink down into, even a little bit.

  3. Is this mattress somewhat firm? Or do you just sink into it. Looking to get a new mattress but need something firmer than the one I have which is a teddy bear fur topped soft one. My back hasn’t been doing the greatest but I’ve had it for awhile!

    1. Brennan @ Our Home on Purpose

      I feel like it’s in-between! It is definitely not as firm as my toddler’s mattress which doesn’t have any give or sinking. However, I don’t feel like I sink into it as much as with a pillow top or super-soft mattress. Hope this helps!
