Why you Should Consider Sleeping on an OMG Mattress

Author: Jesse Tutt

The OMG Mattress is not like other Mattresses 

All Mattresses are not created equal. 

Our objective in creating the OMG Mattress was to produce the finest online mattress we could, that would address sleep and health issues such as tossing and turning that cause sleep fragmentation; pain from sports or other injuries or arthritis in areas such as the shoulders, ribs, elbows, hips and knees that keep you awake; back pain; spinal support; sleep temperature (cooler is healthier); and a less than friendly damp sleep environment caused by body perspiration, while at the same time being medium firm (medium firm is better when it comes to sleep issues) and yet extremely comfortable to sleep on. All at an average Joe or Josephine affordable price. 

We don't like to brag, but we think we accomplished that with our 10.5” OMG Memory Foam Mattress. It's sleep re-imagined. A sleep game changer. 

High Quality Fabrics

Here's what sets the OMG mattress apart from other online mattresses. It starts at the top. Our fabric is luxurious and anything but ordinary. Unlike almost all online mattresses that have 100% polyester stretch knit options, we added spantex and a degree of cotton.

We then channel-quilted our luxurious fabric to a layer of flame retardant, hypoallergenic, non-absorbent, moisture wicking, water, wrinkle and mildew resistant fibre. Because of cost, it's pretty uncommon to see a fibre layer in online mattresses. Along with the fibre we also added a layer of super soft gel foam. This foam layer adds a major dimension of comfort to the OMG.

Memory Foam

Under the super soft foam layer, we get serious about helping you sleep not only comfortable, but better. We took memory foam, the world’s #1 pressure relieving foam, and added gel and graphite to make it even better.

Memory foam was invented in 1966 by Charles Yost under contract to NASA, as a cushioning material to relieve stress G-force astronauts were subjected to during spaceship takeoff. Once it's great qualities were uncovered, it made its way into airline pilot and passenger seats, movie theatre seats, football helmets and shoes. In 1992 Tempur-Pedic® introduced memory foam into mattresses, as a solution to a better night’s sleep. If you’ve shopped for a Tempur-Pedic® mattress, you know they’re anything but cheap. Queen size mattresses range in price from $1,799 to $7,499.

Benefits of Traditional Memory Foam

Memory Foam has many benefits including:

  • Relief to joint pain caused by sport injuries or accidents, or arthritis pain that can keep you awake. By taking pressure off pressure points such as shoulders, elbows, ribs, hips and knees, it's easier to fall and stay asleep.
  • Medium firm support. According to Dr. Jeffrey N. Katz (Professor of Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School), and the National Sleep Foundation, a medium-firm mattress can lead to better sleep for those with back pain. 
  • It molds to the body in response to heat and pressure, and evenly distributes body weight without gaps like inner-springs, thereby improving blood circulation. The end result is reduced tossing and turning as you sleep, and less sleep interruptions if you're sleeping with a partner.
  • Cradling and gently contouring to your body and lower back, thereby supporting the lower back and spine as you sleep.
Consumers that sleep on mattresses containing memory foam, including those on a Tempur-Pedic®, give their mattresses the highest consumer rating (4 out of 5).

    Cooling

    We’ve all experienced tossing and turning as we try to sleep in a hot environment. The benefits of sleeping in a cold room are varied, but all point to a better night's rest. When a room warms up, it tends to interrupt our sleep. Traditional memory foam tends to sleep hot, and as our bodies like it cool at night, we added both gel and graphite to the OMG.

    Gel was originally introduced into memory foam by Serta® in their iComfort® line, to make for a cooler sleep. More recently graphite was introduced as a cooling agent in computers and other products. By adding both gel and graphite components to the OMG Mattress you get double temperature regulation and cooling.

    High Density Bio Foam

    To further add to comfort, under the pressure relieving OMG specialty memory foam layers, we added a layer of High Density Bio foam made from soy based oils. In addition to providing comfort, this foam layer helps us reduce the carbon footprint in the OMG. Our final foam layer consists of 1.8 lb. of High Density Bio Support foam made from soy based oils. Anything less in Bed in a Box or one sided mattresses, and you’re going to compromise durability and mattress life. But we don’t stop there. We then finish the bottom with a no skid material, so that the OMG doesn’t slide all over whatever foundation you place it on.

    It's important to note that all our foams meet CertiPUR-US® standards for content, emissions, and durability.

    That they've all been analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.

    • No ozone depleters
    • No PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP ("Tris") flame retardants
    • No mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
    • No formaldehyde
    • No phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
    • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)

    Last but not least, the OMG is Made in Canada for everyone!

    Cooling Mattress Protector

    We also have an additional cooling option available for those that want an even cooler sleep. Our Khao mattress protector can reduce sleep temperature by 2 to 3 degrees. It's also infused with Silver Ion agents that when oxidized can effectively kill bacteria.

    Sleep with the Stars

    In summary, we believe our OMG is the best in class mattress available online today in its price range. One that incorporates fibre for temperature regulation and moisture wicking. One that contains our special proprietary OMG pressure relieving memory foam with gel and graphite to reduce sleep temperature, tossing and turning, and back pain issues. One that relieves joint pain, pain from sport injuries, accidents, and/or arthritic pain, by taking pressure off pressure points such as your shoulders, elbows, ribs, hips and knees. One that provides spinal support. And last but not least, one that’s firm enough yet so comfortable you’ll wake up rested, restored and rejuvenated, and wanting to stay in bed longer. Nothing compares to our OMG 10.5 Inch pressure relieving, cooling mattress. As soon as you lie down you'll be saying "Oh my God!"

    101 Night Trial

    We’d like to make you the following offer. Like most of our online competitors we offer a free trial period. In keeping with everyone else we offer 101 nights, although we don’t believe anyone needs 101 nights to determine whether or not a mattress is blow away. We do agree with an adjustment period, but if your new mattress is not providing a good night’s sleep after 30 days, it probably never will.

    If our OMG isn’t supercalifragilisticexpialidocious after 30 nights, please visit our refund section for conditions and instructions for obtaining a refund.
