Alexander Signature Series Review In Real Life

We checked in with newlyweds, Hannah and Tony, who bought the Alexander Signature Series mattress after one night, one week, and one month of sleeping on it

Alexander Signature Mattress in a bedroom

We find that most people leave reviews about their new mattress after only a few nights of sleeping on it, or sometimes even before they set it up…super helpful, right? This doesn’t give you any insight on how they feel after sleeping on the mattress for a while, which is the important part. So we asked real people a few questions about how they chose their mattress and what their experience was like after one night, one week, and one month on the mattress.

While every sleeper is different, we hope this couple’s mattress journey will help you in your own search.

Meet Hannah & Tony

Hannah and Tony are newlyweds living in Chapel Hill, NC. Hannah is a first-grade teacher and Tony is in his fourth year of Pharmacy school at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Since their wedding last year, Hannah and Tony have been sleeping on an old family mattress. Due to the age of the mattress, Hannah and Tony were experiencing issues with motion transfer, responsiveness, and comfort which ultimately led them to search for a new mattress.

Both Hannah and Tony are side sleepers and have no special conditions such as low-back pain or issues with sleeping hot.

H: It was so comfortable! We loved the foam top and just felt it fit our needs.
