Big Fig Mattress Review
Most mattresses are designed for the basic sleeper in mind. The firmness and support are ideal for customers who weigh between 100 -250 pounds. Unfortunately that leaves a sizeable portion of the US without a viable sleeping solution. That was until Big Fig Mattress came along.
Big Fig designed their bed with heavier customers in mind. Bigger sleepers need a more durable bed with stronger support. Big Fig set out to create a mattress that wouldn’t let any size person down, no matter how large. The result was the Big Fig mattress and foundation.
A firmer bed that doesn’t lose its softness.
Big Fig uses a combination of high-density foam and spring coils to for the needed support. We found that this bed has a firmness of 7 out of 10 (10 being the firmest). The firmness may be a bit too strong for lighter sleepers, but it is ideal support heavier customers. The Big Fig still has a gel-infused latex foam layer on top for comfort. Don’t expect a plush pillow top with the Big Fig. This bed aims to provide support.
The Big Fig mattress is responsive
The Big Fig gives around 3″ of sinkage, but this number can vary depending on the weight of the sleeper. The high-density poly foam layer does a great job dispersing the weight over the coils. The poly foam and coils also create a more responsive bed that is ideal for heavier people. The bounce of this mattress means it will be easier for sleepers to get off and on their bed. A soft mattress could be a hassle for sleepers with a bit more weight.
Don’t let heat be an issue.
Larger sleepers tend to create more heat during the night. Overheating is one of the biggest reasons Americans don’t get a good nights rest. Big Fig created a ThermoGel top layer to combat this problem. The special technology is breathable and does help cool the sleeper. The Gel-infused latex foam also helps with airflow and removing heat. Our big fig mattress review found that sleepers on this bed did notice a cooler sleep.
The other important aspect of this bed to note is the rigorous testing. Big Fig knew that their beds would have to stand up to a bit more weight than average. They used a 350lb roller on their bed for 200,000 cycles (20 years approx.) After that brutal punishment, the Big Fig mattress lost almost no height. The typical industry test is 100,000 cycles with a 240 lb roller for comparison. The Big Fig is perfect for customers needing a bed that won’t give out because of a little more weight.
