When was the last time you bought a mattress? For most of us it’s likely when you purchased one for the kids. Like most things, as parents we tend to put ourselves last. With a recent room-switcheroo between our three kids this summer (my teenager finally achieved his goal of a basement bedroom), we had a decision to make. Finally get a new King mattress for our bedroom and then transfer our mattress to the basement for him, or continue with the current mattresses? I figured it was a good time to make the change, but who wants to go mattress shopping on a beautiful summer day, laying awkwardly in the showroom on a mattress with your husband while a salesperson stares at you?
Introducing Endy a Canadian e-commerce company that sells high-quality foam mattresses directly to consumers (only in Canada!) for less than alternative top brands. Manufactured right here in Canada, Endy
No movers needed with Endy! The box is shipped directly to your door FREE in all Canadian provinces, taking about 3-5 days and customers have a full 100 nights to decide if they love their Endy mattress. Not satisfied? They will pick up your mattress free of charge. Wow! That tells me this Canadian company is pretty confident that you’ll love their product! (Mattresses that are returned are fully cleaned and then donated to charity partners across the country.)
Set-up is really easy. You simply take the protective wrap off the mattress (you’re sent a little tool to assist with this so you don’t damage anything with scissors by accident), then position it in place on your box spring/base, and watch it unroll! Your mattress is ready to sleep on right away, but it can take up to one week for it to fully expand. Truthfully, I didn’t notice any difference as the week went on though I’m sure it expanded little-by-little.
From Endy.com: Proudly Canadian-made, the Endy Mattress is made with proprietary Endy Comfort Foam. Endy’s foam has a unique open air cell structure that provides the perfect balance of comfort and support, plus temperature control, pressure relief, and reduced motion transfer. Importantly, Endy foam is not like traditional memory foam. While memory foam mattresses sink in the summer and feel firm as a rock in the winter, Endy foam is temperature insensitive. This means it maintains a consistent feel through every Canadian season, no matter the temperature. Plus, the foam’s open air cell technology enhances breathability and cooling throughout the night.
Getting the mattress at the start of our warm
Saskatchewan summer, I wondered if the foam in the mattress would make us
super-hot. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case. Now that the weather has cooled,
I’ve noticed no difference at all in temperature-comfort. A note about the foam
, because I was curious about it: all
foam used in making Endy products doesn’t contain harmful chemicals found in
other foam products: no formaldehyde, phthalates, or flame retardants.
A new mattress is a big deal! We spend (hopefully) 8+ hours a night in bed, not to mention the countless hours reading, snuggling with the kids, or resting and catching up with each other after a long day while the kids get ready for bed. There IS going to be a difference and you ARE going to feel different the first few nights, especially if your old mattress is…well…as old as your oldest child, for example. I wanted to ensure we were cognizant of that going into this review, and admittedly the first night wasn’t one of those “I’m sleeping beauty and everything is amazing and there are birds singing,” the next morning. The sleep wasn’t terrible at all, it was just different.
It wasn’t until about night 3 or 4 that my body became used to – and then craved – my Endy mattress. I think I had been so used to just sinking into our old mattress (it literally held our shapes) that I didn’t even realize how bad for my body it was. Now, I was going to sleep fully supported on a mattress that cushions my body but doesn’t leave me sinking in, nor feeling like I’m sleeping on a board. It’s the perfect fit for everyBODY.
Now, after 100 nights IN, there is no way I’m giving up my Endy Mattress (I told myself if I hated it I’d swap it out to the spare bedroom) and I’ve recommended it both online and IRL to friends. Yes, there are other mattress-in-a-box companies out there, but I’d urge you to do your homework first and check the quality of products used in the mattress, where it’s made, and of course the reviews from real customers on the website. I AM a real customer, but I’m also very aware I’m an influencer so I understand if people want to read a regular-guy’s review to compare as well!
Ready to jump in and try Endy for yourself? Remember, you have a full 100 nights to try the mattress to ensure it’s for you, so you have nothing to lose (except your Netflix time because you’ll be snoozing more in bed, not watching your iPad!) You can use my discount code TENILLE50 to save $50 on any size of Endy Mattress (and no, I don’t receive any kickbacks or compensation if you order using my code – I’m 100% loving Endy and want you to love it too!)
