Spindle Mattress Review In Real Life

We checked in with Rebecca who bought the Spindle mattress after one night, one week, and one month of sleeping on it

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 sleeper’s mattress journey will help you in your own search.

Meet Rebecca

Rebecca is a young professional living in North Carolina and working in sales. She recently moved to a new apartment and was eager to get tired of her old mattress, which had been passed down for years in her family.

Rebecca is a back and side sleeper. She doesn’t sleep with a partner and has no special conditions.

The selection and buying process

MA: Why were you in the market for a new mattress?

R: I had just moved, and couldn’t stand my old mattress.

MA: What factors did you consider when buying a mattress?

R: I wanted something firm to support my back, but also soft so when I turned on my side it wouldn’t make my shoulders sore.

MA: Did you compare any other brands? If so, what were they?

R: I compared to a Wayfair Mattress, as well as the Sealy Cocoon.

MA: What ultimately led you to purchase the Alexander Signature Series mattress?

R: The sustainability of the brand, as well as latex. I like buying American made and contributing to our domestic economy.

MA: What was your mattress buying experience like?

R: It was great!
