Next year I am 33. My mind still thinks I’m 23, but after giving birth to two children and working a physical job as a decorator for many years, my body just ain’t what it use to be. At the end of an exhaiusting day, I camt wait to jump in to bed. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so being comfortable and having the right mattress is extrememly important. And especially so for someone like me who relies on a good nights sleep to function. We have had our current mattress for a little over 10 years now and it just doesn’t do the job any more. Or maybe I just care more about comfort these days. Unlike my husband who is the world’s best sleeper and can fall asleep on a concrete floor (I’ve seen this with my very own eyes…) I need to be comfortable or I will have a restless nights sleep. After a decade with our mattress, it is time to say goodbye and switch to something with a bit more support for this achy, half way to 66, body of mine.
I’ve teamed up with the wonderful team at Amart to test drive (sleep drive?) the Orthokinetic Prestige Decadence Ultra Plush Queen Mattress.

My experience: Dealing with Amart and the delivery team was a breeze. All I had to do was sign on the dotted line and rip of the protective plastic wrapping. I was like a kid on Christmas day, eager to get into my gift. Once unwrapped, it was time to test the comfort. Oh. My. Lord. Was there comfort! What had we been sleeping on for the past ten years? Whatever it was, the Orthokinetic beat it hands down. I kid you not, I popped fresh sheets on and spent the next 2-3 hours sitting and laying on it, counting down the hours until bed time. So how did I sleep? I’ll admit that the first few nights my body was adjusting to sleeping on a softer mattress, which I think is natural. But now my nights have been fabulously comfortable and I’ve been getting really great nights sleeps. My body feels like it’s sinking into the softness of the mattress, yet also feels supported at the same time. I usually wake during the night but now I’m sleeping through. Which is marvelous now that both kids are sleeping 10+ hours at night. I wish I had this mattress when I was pregnant as I think it would have made the world of difference to how I slept. Which was not a lot… This mattress is so soft, but not too soft like some mattresses can be. It really is luxurious and I am beyond happy with it. My husband can sleep on anything, but he agrees that it is super comfortable and that we’ve earnt a mattress this good after having our old one for so long. And we are looking forward to years of comfortable nights, knowing that our mattress comes with a 20 year warranty.
