Last week I headed to the local mall to check out the Sleep Number® store. Admittedly, I haven’t been there before. I’ve wanted to check them out, but until recently hadn’t been in the market for a new bed.
With the divorce, I’m ready to move on from the bedroom set I have (it’s his anyway). When I walked into the Sleep Number store, I wasn’t too worried about wanting a new bed when I left.
HA! That was a mistake.
I met Tom, the Sleep Number® expert and he spent an awesome amount of time with me showing me the different beds. Tom’s been with the company for 3 1/2 years and I could tell he knew what he was talking about and wasn’t at ALL a pushy sales guy! He just knew his stuff!
First we started out having me lay down c3 to figure out what my Sleep Number® was. When I first laid down it was like a rock to me at the 100. I like a squishy, cozy bed! He brought me down to bit by bit and stopped at a 30 when I told him I was comfortable.
You see that computer next to the bed? That’s what showed me how my body contours when I lay on it! You can see where you carry a lot of pressure. The red is the highest pressure.
Before the adjustment:
Tom brought me back up to 100 and let it drop down again, but this time it went to 25. It felt absolutely perfect. I actually would’ve been quite satisfied at that point and not had the need to try out another bed!
Next we went to the m7. As soon as I laid down, I could feel how cool it was. It has 3-inches of CoolFit™ foam with gel technology! I tell you, for these super hot summers we have in MN, I could get used to that bed! Tom gave me a couple of pillows to try on this bed and I was happy with the first one he gave me, which was one of the CoolFit™ pillows.
One of the first things I noticed was how I felt like I contoured to the bed even before Tom had adjusted my number. While I was laying on the bed I told Tom that I was pretty sure I was never leaving. He made sure that I knew the mall cops wouldn’t be thrilled to still find me there.

Next we moved on to the i8 wish has temperature balancing technology so basically through the night, it adjusts to you so you’re not too hot or too cold! Seriously, technology is SO flippin’ awesome!
While I was laying on the i8, Tom showed me all the accessories you can purchase and modify to fit you! They ahve In Balance Sheets that also help you stay cool through the night. Ladies, if you’re dealing with night sweats or other symptoms of menopause, I HIGHLY suggest you look into all of the options Sleep Number® has! I felt the difference between a watch of regular sheets and the In Balance bedding made with Outlast® ones…let me assure you, the difference is pronounced!
The feature that piqued my interest was the FlexFit™ Adjustable Base. I’m a reader. I read in bed constantly trying to prop my pillows just right so I can read comfortably. Oh my goodness, to have a bed that let’s me sit up when I want to be on the laptop (you know, the one I don’t own yet) or to read the pile of books on my nightstand…hello heaven!
So, now I get to start saving for another item I need to add to my home! LOL There’s always something right? This, though I’m in the market for right now!
