Do I Need A Foundation?
You can place your Big Fig Mattress on top of any surface, boxspring or other that you choose. But in order to maintain the comfort and integrity of your mattress, especially for bigger figure sleepers, it must be able to evenly and properly support the weight.
You do NOT need a foundation if you:
- Have a platform bed
- Have a bed frame with a built-in base or wood slats
- Already have a sturdy foundation that supports at least 1,220 lbs.
- Have an adjustable bed frame
- Plan to place your mattress directly on the floor

Frequently Asked Questions
How much weight is the Big Fig Foundation designed to support?
Designed to support 5 times the weight of a traditional foundation, the Big Fig Foundation is the strongest foundation on the market. Our Foundation will fully support the weight of a Big Fig Mattress along with the specified weight of 1 or 2 sleepers (up to 1,100 lbs. for 2 people or 550 lbs. for one person).
What makes the Big Fig Foundation unique?
We've designed it from the ground up to support our mattress and plus sized sleepers. It is simply built stronger and better than any foundation available. We utilize more wood, more and wider cross slats, greater center support, and exceptional block edge support. But the bottom line is it is engineered and built to last, and we back this up with test results and an unheard of 20 year warranty. Rest assured that it will provide the ideal support for your Big Fig Mattress for many years to come.
Can I use a box spring instead of a foundation?
You can place your Big Fig Mattress on top of any bed, box spring or other surface that you choose. But in order to maintain the comfort and integrity of your mattress, especially for bigger figure sleepers, it must be able to evenly and properly support the weight.
Unfortunately, we don’t know of any boxspring on the market that can make this claim. If you are able to find a boxspring or foundation that is guaranteed to support at least 1,220 lbs. (the weight of a Big Fig Mattress + 2 sleepers weighing a total of 1,100 lbs.), it could be a viable option to use under a Big Fig Mattress.
Tell me more about the Big Fig Foundation.
The Big Fig Foundation is an exceptionally strong and durable foundation specifically designed to support the Big Fig Mattress. It is made with only the highest grades of spruce, pine and fir woods and utilizes far more wood in each compared to any other foundation on the market. It can support up to 5 times the weight of a standard foundation or boxspring. We utilize two center supports (versus the industry standard 1), 18 2.5" wide cross slats (versus 8 1.5"slats) and 32 2x4 wood block supports around the perimeter of the foundation.
We know of no other foundation on the market that can compare. We do know our foundation will provide the proper and necessary support for our mattress to ensure years of comfortable sleep.
Where is the foundation made?
All Big Fig Foundations (and mattresses) are made in our single factory facility located in Cleveland, OH.
