Some of my more regular readers will already know that I suffer with acute pelvic pain stemming from SPD that will only be rectified with surgery.
So it won’t come as a surprise that with having such a painful condition that means I have no stability in my pelvis my hips and back take the brunt of the pain, particularly through the night.
I have a small baby who is coming up for 8 months old and sleeps like a dream … however I do not.
I have been waking 2 -3 times a night and been restless for 15+ times since I was pregnant with my first son 6 years ago.
I wrote recently about how soul-destroying it can be to suffer with sleep deprivation and it would be fair to say my quality of sleep is utter pants.
Needless to say when we got the opportunity to try out a revolutionary mattress from Eve we jumped at it.
If you have missed the recent TV adverts let me fill you in!
Eve only have one mattress that comes in 12 different sizes and the reason for that is they put all their best ideas into creating the perfect mattress so I was totally banking on this being the ‘one’
When it arrived it came in a box that was very small in comparison to what was inside! … However it was heavy so I can highly recommend 2 people taking it up the stairs!
On sliding out the mattress from the box you can clearly see its iconic yellow edges, although until you have undone the plastic seal you have no idea of how tall the mattress is.
I cut the plastic open and within a few minutes it was gushing to get out its plastic wrapping and so I slid it into place.
The first thing I noticed once it was completely out the bag was the lovely depth to it … enough though you need to give it a while to fully get back to its normal size I was more than thrilled at just how deep and luxurious it looked.
Add to that the quality stitching on the seams and the eye-catching yellow side trim and it was easy to love it for its looks alone.!
One of the final things I noticed and loved about the mattress was the airflow top cover that instantly made me feel much better about using a memory foam mattress.
In the past some memory foam mattresses have had bad press of them making you sweaty but I can totally confirm that the Eve mattress has never made me sweaty and in fact we have now been using it for a month and I personally have noticed a massive change in my own sleeping habits.
Prior to using the eve mattress I mentioned earlier that I was constantly tired and struggled to get any quality of sleep … this information was lifted from my Fitbit activity tracker that recorded my sleep and the quality of my sleep back over the summer using my old mattress.
This second picture below is using the same tracker once using my Eve mattress.
I think it’s fairly conclusive that my sleep quality has improved and has the amount of sleep that I now get off the back of that.
Before I struggled with our previous mattress with Ollie and I rolling into each other and continually made barriers with the duvet just to stop us crashing in the middle, we also had a tendency to wake each other up in the night if one of us got out of bed the moment would wake the other too, this has certainly not been the case for this mattress.
In fact it has been like sleeping on a foam nest, I no longer feel pressure aches from the side I have been sleeping on and it really do feel like I have much more support which has helped massively with the SPD in my hips and back.
Due to my medical conditions I am never ever going to have 100% sleep quality as the pain is consistent but my current sleep quality is as near to perfect as I am ever going to get.
After a whole month of proper sleep and comfort I am euphoric at just how much more energy I now have and as the sleep trackers prove above I can only put it down to the change in mattress.
Since I normally like to be honest about the good the bad and the ugly when reviewing I tried to find something bad about the mattress but with its 100 days no quibble exchange offer and the current retail price of £549 for our mattress size (UK double) I don’t think the price is anything other than reasonable and certainly no more expensive than a High Street retailers offerings but for me having the no quibble exchange makes it all the more appealing.
Thank you Eve for allowing me test drive your mattress, I am so much more productive and now cant wait to get into bed for a good nights sleep.
