When I moved to NYC in May I had to purchase my very first “big-girl bed”. By “big girl bed” I mean a quality frame, mattress, and all of the necessary accessories to make sure I was not only sleeping soundly, but also taking care of the mattress so that it will last for the long haul.
Purchasing a mattress is a pretty big purchase when you are moving, so I did some shopping around, but finally ended up selecting a mattress similar to this one. But of course, you cannot just get a mattress. You need a box spring, mattress protectors, a frame, pillows, and pillow protectors. Based upon my experience, here is what I recommend.
I am a firm believer that all pillows and mattresses should be protected from liquids, accidental spills, perspiration when you sleep… the whole nine. When I remove the protective covers on my own mattress, it looks brand-spankin new! After paying over $1,300 for a full size mattress, box-spring, frame, and accessories – it is only right to protect this investment.
What I love about these Amerisleep products is that they are all eco-friendly. From the mattresses to the protectors, they really help you sleep just a little bit healthier. Also, did I mention that Amerisleep products are made in the US of A?
That’s so rare! So you can sleep healthier, with products made in the USA which ultimately can help you to achieve a little bit more comfort.
The one thing that I will mention is that these organic mattress protectors don’t protect the mattress from bed bugs, so when I spoke with Amerisleep they recommended the bed bug encased mattress cover. This is also waterproof on all 6 sides and they say that once it’s on, it’s on and good for the life of the mattress. While many cities have rules about reporting beg bug infestations, you can never be too prepared. Protect yourself AND your mattress.
Do you use mattress and pillow protectors?
