When my husband and I moved in together 18 years ago he brought along his double mattress with him. I always had a single mattress, what a treat it was to finally have a larger bed. Fast forward 8 years, we had a little water issue in our bedroom (our portable air conditioner spilled a lot of water on the floor) and unfortunately our mattress was directly on the floor and it soaked up all the water. It took such a long time to finally dry, so long that we weren’t comfortable using it anymore (the mattress was probably over 20 years old too). The following week we had a family vacation booked so we decided we would figure out the whole mattress situation when we would get back. When we arrived home from our vacation we were surprised to find a new mattress in our house! My in-law’s bought us a mattress while we were away and it was a queen mattress! WOW! We were so surprised and thankful!
Mattress Firmness is important
The “only” issue with the mattress was that it was soft. We both prefer our mattress medium-firm. Of course we weren’t about to say anything, how ungrateful would that have been to complain about the firmness, it was a very thoughtful gift after all.
The problem is our sleep and our bodies have paid for that “only” issue. We have been waking up with sore backs for years now. We just couldn’t bring ourselves to change it though, we didn’t want to hurt my in-laws feelings.
However, about a month ago, I was contacted by NOVOSBED to try out their Douglas Mattress. I figured that it must have been a sign, time to change our mattress, and hope this one would be perfect for us.

Bed in a box
Would you believe that the mattress arrived in a box?! A bed in a box! I knew it was going to arrive in box, but I was extremely surprised by the size of the box. I expected it to be so much bigger. When we opened the box I honestly thought that perhaps they had shipped me a twin mattress instead of a queen. Doing the math in my head, it was too small to be a queen mattress.
Once we removed it from the box we started unwrapping the plastic from around it. As we unwrapped it we could see the mattress expanding in size. When the plastic was completely removed the mattress got bigger and bigger. We could even hear it expanding. We proceeded to remove the plastic that the mattress was covered in, which allowed it to reach it’s actual size. You should have seen my daughters’ faces during the entire process, they couldn’t figure out how it went from a tube to a big mattress. hehe And of course, they had to be the first ones on it!
Douglas Mattress Review
The Douglas mattress is absolutely a dream come true. Sébastien and I have been sleeping so well on it. We actually look forward to going to bed now, as we know we will have a great night of sleep. I have noticed that I no longer toss and turn like had been doing for years. We both don’t feel the mattress move when the other changes sleeping position. The medium-firm firmness is perfect for us too! P.S. We love it so much that we got new bed sheets and comforter to celebrate! haha
We have one little problem though, our daughters’ have started using our bed as their favorite spot to relax. hehe Emanuelle even tries to sneak into our bed before we go in so that she can sleep on our comfy mattress. I guess we should look into getting them each their own single sized Douglas.
Buying a Mattress Online
If you are in the market for a new mattress, I highly recommend you check out the Douglas mattress. The pricing is great ($749 for a Queen sized Douglas), shipment comes to you, it’s super comfy, and there’s also a 120-Night Trial with 100% free return! And don’t forget, the Douglas is by Canadians, for Canadians! There’s no reason not to try it out!
Isn’t a bed in a box really cool? I still can’t get over that it arrived in a box and how absolutely comfortable it is!
I’m curious, what size bed do you have? I’d LOVE to have a king, but I would need to move to be able to fit a king bed in my bedroom. hehe
Hope you have a great night of sleep!
