What Customer is Best Suited to a Mattress (Bed) in a Box or BedinaBox?

Author: Eric Buchfink

A Bed in a box or BedInABox mattress is great for almost everyone. 

A mattress in a box offers the same benefits as spring or foam mattresses including a trial period, supporting every sleep position, and supporting pressure points.

The main difference is that bed in a box mattresses fit almost anywhere and are more cost effective as they simply much easy to ship.

If you need a medium firmness gel memory foam mattress, consider the OMG Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress.  It has gel infused, is the same size as all other mattresses, has great edge support, and supports all body types.

If you are carrying a little extra weight, you probably have concerns about how a bed in a box mattress will support you in the long-term. The good news is that comfortable and affordable memory foam mattresses are firm to the edge and are often cited as the best option for heavier individuals, due to their temperature modulating materials, and their ability to support.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind if you’re a larger-than-average individual. Comfort, relief from pressure points, back and spinal support, joint pain relief, and sleep temperature are all important factors to consider when buying a new mattress. 

If you weigh less than 250 lbs you’re probably a very good candidate for Gotta Sleep OMG foam beds. Even if you like your mattress firm or are looking for a mattress for all body types.  We have a trial period to ensure you like it.  If you weigh more than 250 lbs, we encourage you to visit a Brick and Mortar specialty mattress store, where you can try out coils and specialty foams designed to support and distribute weight.

Mattress Thickness

One important factor that bears consideration for sleepers of a larger size, is the thickness of the mattress. While any thickness can work for a period, heavier individuals will be more comfortable on a mattress that’s at least 8 inches thick. And multiple layers of foam generally offer more support.
