Best Sleep Ever Thanks to Douglas Mattress

Introducing the Douglas Mattress by Novosbed

Douglas Mattress Memory Foam Bed by Novosbed

Douglas Mattress by Novosbed has made my dreams have come true! There is finally a bed out there that gives me the most comfortable sleep, allows me to sleep through the night and wake up with less pain and stiffness.

I am here to tell you about this amazing mattress for both home use and for great national camping trips, how it has affected my body and how it has come into my life at just the right time.

Compared to my old mattress, the Douglas Mattress is a gift from heaven.

The mattress I had been sleeping on was old (so old I can’t remember how old). It had worn out springs and was sagging in the middle. I could feel every movement my hubby made as I am sure he felt mine as well. When either of us got into bed, the other would bounce up off the bed slightly. We would fight during the night to get away from each other (especially in the summertime). The sagging of the bed made us automatically roll to the middle. That made for a horrid nights sleep. I like sleeping on my back while hubby likes to sleep on his side. Neither of us would be comfortable in any position – at -all! We would both be tossing and turning all night long – me especially – just trying my best to get as comfortable as I could. It never happened and I began resorting to using pillows under my back and between my legs which never worked out well either. That wasn’t the worst of it though. My body would go into complete spasms and my legs would burn and have what is akin to what I would call electrical shocks going down my legs. That I have attributed to the bed not supporting my body ( more specifically my back). I would sleep but a couple hours -maybe- throughout the night – for years. It was really starting to take it’s tole on me mentally and physically. We started our search for a new mattress and in doing so came across this buying guide, it was really useful and helped us find our way through all the different types and makes and mattresses until we finally found the one we wanted.


Douglas Mattress by Novosbed in a BoxI was ecstatic when I was chosen to review the mattress and anxiously waited for it to arrive. I couldn’t wait to open the box. Yes – I said box! The Douglas Mattress will arrive coiled up in a protective vacuum sealed plastic cover in a box.

When it arrived, my hubby was out of town. I wanted to get the mattress set up and surprise him when he returned home (and perhaps have a comfortable sleep all by myself -lol-) but I couldn’t lift the box let alone remove the mattress as it was too heavy. The box weighed 60lbs and for me that might as well be 1000lbs. So I patiently waited a few days until his return. He helped me remove the mattress and place the coil onto the bed. I wanted so badly to take a video but it required two people to set up. As soon as we took the mattress out of the box we could here a faint hissing sound. This was the air starting to release and the mattress began to expand. Reminiscent of a Laurel and Hardy show, I grabbed a pair of hospital scissors to begin cutting the plastic cover off the mattress as as soon as I began, the mattress began to explosively expand. While I was cutting, hubby was making sure I wasn’t cutting the mattress. I was shocked. I didn’t think it would expand that fast!! It took seconds for the mattress to be fully laid out on the box spring.

I have a lot of issues with my body. I have arthritis in my neck and throughout my back. I have disc problems along with sciatica. I have good days and bad days but even the good days seem like bad days when I go to bed. Not anymore! The Douglas Mattress is a medium to firm memory foam mattress that just hugs the body in all the right places. As soon as I changed positions, the mattress would spring back up from the place I had been laying on and immediately adjust to my new position.

Compared to my old mattress, the Douglas Mattress is a whole 2″ thicker.

I have to be honest and say that it did take about a week for my body to adjust to sleeping on my new mattress. The first few nights were bad, but nothing that I was not already accustomed too. My body was getting adjusted to sleeping in a new position and having itself hugged and supported in ways that it had not been for years. After the initial getting used to stage, my body began to relax – and it felt AMAZING!!! It actually took a bit before I realized that the pain, burning and shocks going down my legs has stopped! I began falling asleep much faster and slept longer throughout the night. When I got up to go to the bathroom and returned to bed, I fell right back asleep. Hubby and I can sleep on our OWN side of the bed (especially during the summer) That is a real bonus! We can move around on the bed without feeling the movement too drastically and when one of us gets into the bed now – we don’t bounce and possibly wake one another up. I can finally sleep on my back and stay there. I don’t toss and turn all night long and more often than not I am waking up in the same position that I fell asleep in.

Now you might be saying to yourself ” Yeah, this mattress sounds great and I’m sure it’s much better than your old bed – but – there are so many other mattresses how can you say this one is the “best””?

I have slept on other mattress that are quite expensive (more expensive than the Douglas Mattress) and I didn’t have the same results. Either the mattresses were too soft or too hard. Yes – just like Goldilocks and the three bears – this bed was just right!. It’s the best I have had the pleasure of sleeping on to date and the best for me.

I would recommend this mattress to anyone who suffers such as I do and is in pain constantly. Having the Douglas Memory Foam Mattress certainly has improved my quality of life. I am much more well rested which has made me more alert and energetic during the daytime and I no longer want to nap. I am sure that I will have a lot of bad days in my future and I am not saying that the Douglas Mattress is a cure but it is another helpful tool in my battle to be pain free – as much as I can be. I still need to get a good pillow (I am looking into getting a memory foam one) that will help me with the pain in my neck.

Now…if I can just get the hubby to stop snoring – life would be a perfect!
