One fact I learned about myself pretty early on in life is that I hate sharing a bed with someone. No matter how big the bed is, I get so self-conscious and always sleep terribly. Why? Because of how much I toss and turn.
I don’t know what it is about my joints and my body, but I’ve had to shift around for as long as I can remember, flipping sides and sometimes even rotating so that my head is where my feet normally go in order to get comfortable. Suffice it to say that this type of tossing and turning is not conducive to sharing a bed with another person. It doesn’t take long before they’re fed up with me, and I want to die from embarrassment.
Once my boyfriend and I started talking about moving in together, I knew it was time to figure out a solution. The tossing and turning was one thing when he only had to put up with it a few nights a week, but every night? It would be unsustainable. Still, I didn’t have thousands of dollars lying around to shell out on a customized or super fancy mattress.
I was starting to lose hope of finding a worthwhile and budget-friendly solution until my sister-in-law told me about Dormeo mattress toppers. She’d seen an ad for them on TV, ended up buying one, and absolutely loved it.
I knew I could trust her recommendation, so I bought one as well. Ever since, my comfort level and sleep quality have been SO MUCH better. Plus, my boyfriend is much happier, too! I’m no longer stressed about sharing a bed for possibly (hopefully) forever.
I think what makes me toss and turn so much is the fact that I’m a side sleeper. It’s how I naturally fall asleep, but it also puts so much pressure on my shoulders and hips. What makes this product so fabulous and useful is how it contours to my body, supporting my shoulders and hips without applying that pressure. Sleeping has never been easier.
I’m not going to pretend to understand the technology that makes this mattress so comfortable and supportive, but I do know that it was designed with your pressure points in mind. When you lay on it, the mattress sinks and curves almost like memory foam to support those pressure points.
Unlike memory foam, it still feels firm underneath my body. I’ve slept on super-soft mattresses before — and at this point, I consider myself a bit of a sleep and mattress expert. Although they feel great at first, it doesn’t take long until my back and joints start aching because they aren’t getting enough support.
The Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper hits right in the sweet spot between supportive and soft. I’d describe it as “medium firm.” Even my boyfriend, who previously had no sleep issues, has said it’s insanely comfortable and has been getting better sleep on it.
In contrast to other mattress solutions, like a Tempur-Pedic or Sleep Number mattress, this one feels less invasive and less likely to change the sleeping habits of a partner or anyone else who may be sharing your bed. That’s one of the reasons why I was so eager to try it out in the first place — I figured a mattress pad would be less disruptive to my boyfriend than an entirely new mattress.
And I was right. Not only was it much less disruptive, but it also was super easy to install.
If you’ve ever moved or had to replace a mattress before, you know how much work it is to take apart your bed and move mattresses in and out. They’re so heavy and a pain to get around corners and down staircases. Fixing my sleeping problems with a mattress topper rather than an actual mattress was so much easier. All I had to do was roll it on top of the mattress we already had. Problem solved.
Okay, now this is what was almost a sticking point for me: The price. It’s definitely a bit pricier than some of the other mattress toppers I was looking at. Still, there are a few reasons why I decided to buy it anyway and why I definitely think it was worth the price.
First of all, it’s much cheaper than a high-quality mattress would have been, which was my next step in solving my sleep problems. If you’re in a similar spot as me – meaning you’re desperate for better sleep but not quite ready to commit to spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a new mattress – I definitely recommend checking out a high-quality mattress topper like this one.
The other reason why I felt comfortable buying a mattress topper on the expensive side was because of how much confidence Dormeo clearly has in the mattress topper they’ve created. They have a 100-night money-back guarantee: You can sleep on the mattress topper for 100 nights before deciding whether it is or isn’t for you.
In my mind, that’s a pretty big vote of confidence in the product they’re offering. I can’t imagine that would be a profitable business model if every other person ended up returning the mattress topper.
Plus, on top of that, there’s a ten-year warranty. When I spend more than a couple hundred bucks on something, I almost always end up getting the warranty. To me, the peace of mind alone is absolutely worth the money. So, I loved that the ten-year warranty was included in the purchase. I wish every product I bought had such a solid included warranty!
So, if you’re a little bit hung up on the price, trust me, I get it. I was, too. But aside from all the factors that made me feel more confident in this mattress topper, I can now say with certainty that it was worth the money.
I still turn in the night, but I no longer have to constantly switch up my positions before I’m able to fall asleep. It sounds like such a small change, but it has made such a difference in my quality of life.
I think we all underestimate how important quality of sleep is for everything in our lives and how much of a difference it makes to have a consistent, stress-free sleep routine. It affects our physical health, energy, appetite, mental acuity, social skills, and overall happiness. I’m so relieved to have found a solution to my sleep problems.
(My boyfriend is happy, too. He no longer has to share a bed with someone who tosses and turns like a maniac before falling asleep!)
If you’ve given up hope of finding the perfect mattress, maybe you’re looking in the wrong place. You should be looking for a mattress topper instead! I wish someone had told me how useful this product was years ago, so now I’m passing along the message: Don’t suffer unnecessarily anymore.
Give the Dormeo Premium Mattress Topper a try, and you’ll be thanking me in no time.
