What’s your Sleep Number???

I have always loved soft, plushy, fluffy beds with every extra bit of softness I could add – feather bed, pillow-top, down comforter, down pillows, body pillow…basically, I like to sleep in the clouds.

my ideal bed...

My husband, however, has lower back problems and grew up in Italy where beds tend to be a bit more board-like or tough…he could sleep on the floor if he wanted to… my nightmare!

my husband's ideal bed...

This causes a slight issue for us because my mattress is WAYYYY too soft for him – I feel awful hearing him suffer with back problems, but I also can’t sleep on anything too stiff. What to do???

We decided it was time for us to do something to fix this problem so that we could both sleep in peace and comfort, so we went to the Sleep Number store on 61st & 3rd Avenue. We had quite the experience of lying down on bed after bed while the salesperson helped us find the perfect mattress and get an idea of what our sleep numbers would be. I tended to float around the 45 area while my husband was closer to 65. The best part is that we can adjust our sides to be whatever number we want every night!

We will no longer suffer with sleepless nights, and we will likely be a lot happier to know that the other person is just as comfortable…how did married couples do it before Sleep Number mattresses?!?!?!

      Thanks for the encouragement! I tend to post about very random things, but I think there are plenty of people in NYC who deal with the same odd things every day. I’m hoping that I am speaking to an audience!

  2. Hi, I work for Select Comfort in customer service and wanted to thank you for your kind words. Of course I’m biased but I think we make the best bed in the world. We’re finding that our bed owners are a pretty vocal bunch: they’re getting better sleep and aren’t shy about telling others about it! You can join the growing Sleep Number community on facebook http://www.facebook.com/sleepnumber, and we also have a website where our bed owners are sharing their stories. We invite you to share yours. http://www.ilovesleepnumber.com.
