Meet The First Mattress Built Specifically For Plus Size Consumers

We all have had our share of mattress issues especially if you’re a person of size.

While it is believed that mattresses have a lifespan of 10+ years, if you are a person of size, they actually only last 2-3 years before they begin to sag and clip. Replacing a mattress can be costly and everyone deserves a good night’s sleep.

So when we heard about Big Fig Mattress, we had to find out more.bigfig-images-lifestyle-4

Big Fig has created the first mattress specifically for larger people. That means a mattress that is truly an investment and will last you more than 2-3 years.Big Fig logo

Co-founder Alison Goodman’s family has been building mattresses for over 90 years and a consistent problem she has observed over the years is that sleepers who weigh over 350 pounds tend to have similar experiences with mattresses losing its shape and comfort over time.

Other complaints that Goodman has heard from people of size:

  • Sleeping hot due to poor air flow and heat storing material.
  • Weak foundations that break and shift over time causing damage to the bed and
    uncomfortable sleeping conditions.

She discovered that these issues stem from plus size people sleeping on mattresses that were not designed for them. And this is how Big Fig Mattress was born:

“We believe everyone deserves a comfortable and restful night’s sleep, no matter what. We believe that people deserve to buy a strong mattress at an affordable price, with the confidence that it will last. So we took our experience, our obsession for comfort and quality and designed the Big Fig.”

According to the company, Big Fig Mattresses are made with stronger and higher quality materials that have been tested at the highest levels available to simulate 20 years of use from a 350 pound roller machine (most extreme testing in the industry).bigfig-images-lifestyle-3

Goodman discovered that there was barely any difference in the mattress after the testing and encourages shoppers to view the test results found on

“We believe that you deserve to buy a strong, comfortable mattress at an affordable price, with the confidence that it will last. And we carefully addressed each problem specific to improving the plus size sleeper experience.”bigfig-images-lifestyle-2
