Just over a year ago I moved out of my childhood home of 26 years, and into my own apartment. While having to buy every little thing to furnish a new apartment, I also needed to get myself a new mattress. I really didn't do any research when it came to buying a new mattress because I assumed a mattress, is a mattress.....but oh boy was I wrong .
Big Fig had recached out to me to see if I was interested in reviewing a mattress. Without hesitation I agreed to because their mattress literally sounded so perfect, and I thought it was too good to be true. Big Fig created their mattress for plus size and big & tall sleepers, and found solutions for all of the common problems we face with regular mattresses. Some of the problems that Big Fig Mattress has found solutions for is when mattresses have poor support, weak foundation, unsupportive bed frame, no edge support, softening and loss of comfort, sleeping hot, and mattress sag.
I felt like a kid on Christmas waiting by my door for my Big Fig Mattress to be delivered. Their white glove delivery service was so amazing especially considering I live on the 6th floor of my apartment building that has such a small elevator. In about 30 minutes my old bed was completely removed, and my Big Fig Mattress was sitting so beautifully in the middle of my room waiting for me to jump on it!
As soon as all of the plastic was off I laid right down on my new Big Fig Mattress. At first, I was a little nervous because this mattress was a lot firmer than every other mattress I’ve had before. While it did take a week or two to get used to sleeping on a firmer mattress, I quickly realized that a firmer mattress that supported my body was exactly what I needed. With all of my old mattresses, they would lose their firmness and support in less than a year, and I would have this indentation in the center of the mattress where I slept. Not only was this very frustrating because a mattress should last and support me for more than a year, but I also found myself waking myself up in the middle of the night from moving around so much. With my old mattress I would literally move around, and I could feel and hear the bed moving and it would wake me up. It wasn’t until I started sleeping in my Big Fig Mattress that I realized how long I have been suffering with a bad mattress, and how much it affected my sleep! With my new mattress I don't move around much in my sleep , and when I do, I don't wake myself up because my bed isn't squeaking and moving around.
After spending several months with my Big Fig Mattress, I am absolutely in love and wish I had one sooner! The support and durability of this bed is incredible. I can literally jump on my bed and feel 100% confident that nothing is going to happen, and STILL feel supported. The last time I stood on my old mattress to clean my ceiling fan, my feet sunk so far into my bed and I literally felt like I was going to fall over. Besides for the Big Fig Mattress being so durable and supportive, the bed frame and foundation are also two key parts that make this bed so great. The heavy-duty bed frame is made from recycled railroad steel that can support up to 2,000 pounds, and their foundation is designed so that it can support 5x the weight of a standard foundation!

Although Big Fig had reached out to me to review their mattress, I would 100%, hands down purchase this mattress on my own and I have already shared with so many people how amazing it is. I am sure you may be skeptical, but I promise you everything that Big Fig Mattress has claimed about their mattress is completely accurate. I can’t express how grateful I am to have a Big Fig Mattress, but more importantly how they thought of the plus size, and big & tall community when creating this product.
Big Fig was kind enough to give me a discount code - BIANCABROOKLYN that you can use at checkout to save some money! Feel free to send me a message with any question through my website or social channels!
