Mattress Shopping with Elyse Dean

19th Nov 2020

I’ll never forget my first experience mattress fact, my husband and I still bring it up to this day. We were newly engaged and decided we would splurge on a new mattress for our first apartment together. We set out with high hopes for a good day but quickly realized just how dreadful the process can be. We spent the day hopping from store to store, being trailed by all-too-eager salespeople staring us down as we reluctantly tried out every model they recommended. I don’t know about you, but I find it rather hard to relax when you’re being so closely watched by virtual strangers. After trying far too many beds, most of them outside of our price range, and feeling pressured to pick, we made a hasty (above budget) selection and hightailed out of there. While that mattress served its purpose for our first years of our marriage, we were blessed this fall to buy our first home, meaning, we could finally upgrade in size!!!... but where to shop?

Well,I’ve learned a thing or two since then about all the options out there, and I’m here to tell you a few reasons why shopping with Lucid is absolutely the way to go!

Private experience:

There’s just something about shopping for a mattress with an audience that doesn’t sit right with me. From discussing and defending your budget, to explaining your sleeping habits and needs, it’s quite a personal experience to have to involve others in. I absolutely love that with Lucid I can get all my questions answered and make decisions in my own time from the privacy and comfort of my home; no need for small talk with the salesperson!

Practical service:

“Practical” is my new prerequisite for any large purchase; how am I going to get this thing in my home and ready to use?! Not only is shopping from your phone as convenient as can be, but Lucid’s got the delivery details down pat! The mattress comes tightly rolled and packaged up in a box that will easily fit down tight hallways and small door frames. They also include a safety cutter for the wrap around your mattress, so you don’t have to worry about a wayward cut on your brand-new bed. The mattress begins to take shape immediately and soon you’ve got yourself a fully expanded dream bed ready to use. Set up may not have been exhausting, but I guarantee you’ll still want a nap!

Premium product:

This brings me to my last point: the product, hello!? What *really* matters is not so much how you shopped or how it was delivered, but how it serves you for the years to come. I mean, 1/3 of your life is going to be spent sleeping... and if you’re like me, you find ways to crawl back into bed during the day too. That’s a lot of time spent in one place! Having the right bed makes all the difference in how you experience that block of time. Lucid offers a variety of styles with detailed descriptions to help you pinpoint what product will serve you best. I’m personally a side sleeper. The 14” gel memory foam mattress is my perfect match for full night’s sleep and an ache-free wake! With Lucid, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need for a good night’s a price you won’t lose sleep over. What’s not to love?
