Picture this: You have a wild day on the job. Video calls galore, impending deadlines — the whole shebang. Then you scurry on over to a fun night of dinner and drinks with the homies. Finally, the day starts to wind down, and you hit the hay. What you thought would be a restful slumber ends up being restless. You toss and turn and even develop persistent lower back pain. This continues day in and day out as you attempt to grasp a shred of sleep between busy days. This was exactly my experience before I fatefully stumbled upon an ad for the Big Fig Mattress, an American mattress company that tasked itself with designing the perfect mattress for bigger, heavier, and more dense bodies. According to the brand’s promise, anyone from muscular athletes to your everyday average plus-size person can benefit from this mattress. As a plus-size woman, I was intrigued. Were all my mattress woes really related to a failure in design? Would switching up my sleep situation for a Big Fig mattress specifically designed for a larger person like me be a game-changer? I had to find out.
For testing purposes, Big Fig sent me a queen-sized mattress along with their (optional) high-tech adjustable platform base, and after a slight scheduling hiccup, the white-glove delivery service arrived and set up the mattress and base. We take reviews seriously here at Most Wanted, so I was determined to log at least 30 sleepy nights before bringing you all the scorching hot tea on all the hubbub regarding the Big Fig mattress. However, if you’re already sold, you can proceed straight to the brand’s website to take advantage of their current promotion: $300 off with code BEBOLD.

Does The Big Fig Mattress Work For Couples?
As far as the experience of sleeping on the mattress with a partner goes, I can't fully speak to that due to my single status. However, the mattress can hold an impressive 1100 pounds and is built with movement isolation in mind. While Big Fig is designed for heavier folks and plus-size people, many have reported it to be perfectly comfortable and supportive for their smaller-sized partners. One reviewer explained, "I’m a 6’3” 280-pound solid male. I had severe back pain caused by the sway in all mattresses I tried. After about a week of adjusting to a new and firm mattress, the pain started to deteriorate. I’ve had it [for] over a month now, and I’d confidentially say that 90% of the pain has gone. This bed keeps me level. Even my small 160-pound partner loves it."
