Finding a good quality, natural and affordable mattress is very hard these days. Most mattresses on the market contain very toxic chemicals like flame retardants that off-gass and can really affect our health. It's important to have a mattress that is both safe and comfortable, since we spend 8 hours a night every single night sleeping right on top of it!

We've had the same mattress for 8 years, and let's just say, it was in bad shape. I've been pregnant since January (39 weeks now!) and have been miserable at night since about the sixth month mark. I get horrible round ligament cramps in my lower belly and I'd wake up with a really stiff back. My husband has trouble with an old shoulder injury and often can't fall asleep at night. Sounds like we are getting old, doesn't it?! Our chiropractor has helped a lot, but I knew our mattress was a big part of the problem.
So I was really excited when Dromma Bed contacted me to see if I'd try out one of their eco-friendly, memory foam mattresses!

Medium Soft or Medium Firm?
According to Dromma Bed, Medium soft is ideal for side and stomach sleepers, and the Medium Firm is ideal for back sleepers, sprawlers, and bed hogs.
What Kind of Bed Frame Do You Need?
And all you need for this bed is either a platform bed frame, a bed with slats, the floor, or even a bed with a box spring works, too. So there are a lot of options that will hopefully work with the existing bed you already have (or in my case, you're tired of your bed and wanted to get a new one!). Here's where I got my headboard (just under $200!!) and here's where I got the platform bed with slats. The slats are flexible so it gives even more cushion and support and there is 13″ of clearing under the bed. I have all our clothes for the next season stored under there, freeing up space in our master closet – yay!!
So What Do We Think?
I couldn't wait to go to sleep the day we got our new bed! I've been so uncomfortable at night for about three months, so it was a big deal to actually look forward to going to sleep!
The first thing I noticed right away as soon as we opened the mattress is that there was NO smell at all, not even a little! And Kevin says I have a dog nose – I can smell EVERYTHING! I thought for sure there'd be a little smell, and if there is, my dog nose didn't pick it up.
The only way I've survived at night on our old mattress was to wear a maternity support belt. For the most part, it keeps the cramps away. So get this – I was able to sleep ALL night long without my maternity support belt, without getting a single round ligament cramp! Wow! I was very pleasantly surprised. Plus, I no longer feel Kevin tossing and turning on his side. He also slept well and didn't have any trouble with his shoulder.
I literally feel like I'm sleeping in a cloud – it just envelops and conforms to my body. It's almost like getting cuddled! I couldn't be happier with this bed and will proudly recommend it.
