Plus size and big & tall sleepers have different needs when it comes to long-lasting comfort and quality of sleep. We’ve uncovered the issues being ignored by other mattress companies and devised the solution. Click on a common problem you identify with below, and learn how the Big Fig solves it.
A reoccurring issue among bigger figure sleepers is mattress sag – those uncomfortable holes or impressions that develop in the surface of the mattress over time. The cause for mattress sag lies in the quality and density of the foam layers.
The Big Fig Mattress is constructed with 3 inches of high-density foam cushioning, with a minimum density of 1.8 pcf (pounds per cubic foot). That’s over 50% denser than the foam in a standard innerspring mattress.
Traditional mattresses have inferior components that soften over time as the materials break down. For plus size sleepers, the firmness and comfort level of the mattress can diminish within just a few months of use.
The Big Fig’s hybrid construction of springs and foam provides the ultimate mix of support and comfort. Individually wrapped coils support the layers of foam to maintain their shape and resilience over time.
That “stuck in the mud” feeling you may have experienced on an all-foam mattress is due to passive resistance foams that don’t respond to changes in pressure or body movements.
With 50% more coils than the average premium innerspring mattress on the market, our 1600 count innerspring system actively pushes back against body weight, and provides underlying support.
All-foam and traditional mattresses are notorious for poor edge support.
The Big Fig Mattress is designed with the firmest foam around the edges to keep you feeling secure in bed, even close to the edge. Supportive edges also expand the usable sleeping area, making your mattress feel more spacious.
Our mattress topper is made with ThermoGel cooling technology that actively cools your body temperature. The technology is similar to sweat-wicking athletic clothing. It activates with moisture contact and creates a cooling sensation close to the skin.
In addition to ThermoGel technology, we placed a layer of perforated gel-infused latex foam directly under the quilted top for easy airflow.
When the materials of traditional mattress shift out of place, you’re left with an uneven surface and discomfort. The chance of this happening increases with use.
Tufting prevents material shifting and allows you to enjoy your mattress even longer. We craft our mattress with a significant tuft count (16 tufts for Queen size) to ensure the long-lasting quality of the Big Fig Mattress.
Without a strong foundation, a mattress will degrade even faster and can cause premature sagging. The Big Fig Mattress and Foundation are designed to work together as a support system – the foundation absorbs impact from the mattress, and in turn, and increases its longevity.
The Big Fig Foundation has 16, 2.5 inch wide slats and double center rails to support 5X the weight of a standard foundation.
A bed frame is just as important to support the mattress as the foundation. Our heavy duty frame is made with virtually indestructible, recycled railroad steel that is conservatively rated to support up to 2000 lbs.
The bed frame is not included with your mattress, but is an optional add-on. You can check or uncheck the box above the “add to cart” button to add it to your order.
The Big Fig Bed Frame has a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The average lifespan of a traditional mattress is frustratingly short – especially for plus size sleepers. We sent the Big Fig Mattress to a independent testing facility to prove its durability and longevity. We used a heavier weight than normal (350lbs to be exact) to simulate 20 years of use, and the Big Fig passed with flying colors. See our results here: See Test Results
