It’s no secret that we have been desperately trying to get this house together and ready for the holidays and the guests that will be coming shortly thereafter for the ski season…yay! We love guests, and we love them even more now that we have space for them! 🙂 Poor Ashley hasn’t had a new mattress…ever. Always hand me downs, so you can imagine how thrilled I was…when Wayfair contacted me and asked me if I would be willing to give their new Nora mattress (affiliate link) a try. Um, YES!! I have seen these direct to consumer mattress ads and was very curious about them, so I was excited not only to get a new mattress, but to see how the whole process worked. We had to buy a new mattress last year and it was stressful! It’s such a big investment and after laying on 65 different mattresses in the store we were totally confused as to which one was going to be right for us. It took us practically a whole day to figure out which one to take home. Well, I’m happy to report that this process was smooth and simple, and to put our minds at ease, every Nora mattress comes with a 100-day trial, no hassle returns and a 10 year warranty.

A short time after placing my order for a queen size mattress, a box arrived on my doorstep…Nora mattresses have free 2-day delivery in the US…it was an exciting day!
It is amazing to me that an entire queen mattress fits in this box! I couldn’t wait to get it unboxed and see it!
It was hard to believe that this neatly rolled package was going to just roll out and become a plush mattress. We set it on the bed upstairs and did just what the box said…unwrap and unroll and it immediately started to rise.
Initially there was a very strong “new” smell to the mattress, but after airing out for a day or two, it goes away.
Within an hour, the mattress was completely “inflated” and ready for use…and then it was time for the big test. The comfort level. I have to say, I was pretty skeptical. I have a bad back and I don’t usually sleep well. I do think that a memory foam type mattress takes some getting used to because it feels different to have something mold to your body, than it does to lay on something that is completely firm and rigid underneath you. But, what I have found is that once you adjust to it, having something that molds to your body does help you to sleep better…less tossing and turning.
The Nora mattress also has a jade cooling cover, which is pretty awesome. As soon as you lay on the mattress you can feel that it is cool. The cover, and layers of foam underneath, keep the mattress several degrees cooler than a traditional mattress. It feels pretty amazing to me, but I love a cool sleeping environment. I love the outside air temp to be cool while I snuggle up under blankets.
I would say that our experience with this new Nora mattress has been great, but the even better thing, is that if you get it and decide that you don’t love it, you can return it hassle free, no questions asked. That definitely brings some peace of mind when making an investment in something that determines how you feel each day!
I feel like we’re one step closer to getting this house in order and welcoming guests! It’s getting there!
Happy mattress shopping!
