Our Plus Size, Big Fig Mattress Review

After suffering for years on a mattress that couldn't properly support us to help us get a good night's sleep, Adam and I decided it was time to search for a plus size mattress. Thanks to Big Fig Mattress for selecting me as one of their blogger affiliates, and for sending us one of their mattresses made for bigger people! Affiliate links below.


For years, we dealt with a bad mattress. But as we've gotten older, we've learned how important it is to get a good night's rest, and that means finding high-quality linens, pillows, and even a mattress to sleep on.

When Adam and I first moved to Arizona with only a few suitcases and a couple hundred dollars to our name, we had no furniture and nowhere to sleep. The first day after our journey across the country, we ventured to a local thrift store and found the cheapest packaged/new mattress we could get our hands on. 

Luckily, we found one at that moment so we did not have to sleep on the floor that cost next-to-nothing, and then we quickly learned that you get what you pay for when it comes to a mattress. 

For years, we neglected to resolve our mattress issue and it wasn't until after we had saved our money, moved into a new condo, and began investing in higher-quality furniture (like our new bed and tufted headboard) that I began my search for a mattress that fit our needs. That's when I discovered Big Fig!

Our old mattress had many issues, one of which was that it did not properly support our weight and as a result, it began forming lumps and it was no longer a flat surface for us to sleep on due to the indents our bodies left from sleeping on it. I learned about Big Fig Mattresses when I was searching online for mattresses made specifically for bigger people, and a mattress that had a solution to the issues we had with our old mattress. 

Looking into Big Fig and reading their website, I learned that their mattresses are specifically made and tested for those with larger weight and with their foundation and frame it is meant to support "up to 2000 lbs." 

Just seeing that number and the fact that they have a 20 years warranty had me curious to learn more, so I kept reading about all of the other qualities that make them stand out amongst other mattress companies (including their mattress cooling technology, the intentional tufting to promote mattress longevity, edge support, and most importantly for us how it prevents mattress sag with their high-density foam). 

You can learn all of the facts and details about why their mattress is THE solution for plus size sleeping on their website here, along with their white glove delivery service so you can have your very own Big Fig mattress shipped right to your door and assembled in your bedroom!

  19. I purchased my Big Fig in November 2017. I have been sleeping on it, just a little over 2 months. Pro/Con. Pro - Very high quality. I had some slight shipping issues and the company was all over it. They were very good to work with. The structure of this mattress is pretty amazing. The bed is on the high end of the firm scale. Obviously, as a larger sleeper you would expect this. Con - It is pretty firm lol. My old Serta mattress was a medium firmness but it was worn out after years of use. So it took me some time to get used to this new mattress. I purchased a Topper for my Big Fig and that helped a lot. This con is no longer an issue. I love this bed and how much control I have, moving around and getting in/out. I look forward to using this bed for years to come! James B
