Fat-Friendly Mattresses

We asked our Facebook Community to share what they thought were the most fat-friendly mattresses, and they had a lot of responses. We often have conversations about weight limits and fat-friendly products. One of the most important things you need to consider when shopping for a new mattress is your weight.

Your weight does influence your experience on each bed. Your mattress is responsible for distributing your weight and supporting your body along your spine so you can get the best sleep possible. Unfortunately, this often feels like a pipe dream for fat people. Until now! Here is some feedback from our community on why these fat-friendly mattresses work for them.

“I love my “Big Fig”! Especially as a stomach sleeper….I rotate it every six months and it’s held up well so far (plus the foundation box is incredibly solid).”

Sarah M.

” I love my Big Fig too, and I also love their adjustable base. I am mostly a stomach sleeper, sometimes side. It is very firm, so much that I was worried at first that I would have to send it back, but I adjusted to it and now sleep better than I did on my old mattress.” – Ann Marie B.

“I can’t recommend the Titan mattress enough, paired with a high weight capacity steel frame! Much cheaper than the Big Fig but has been supporting me over 2 years now without a dent. ETA: my queen size was about $850 total” – Kai L.

“I did a LOT of research 5 months ago and ended up choosing the Titan Luxe by Brooklyn Bedding. It’s incredible! I’m a large fat.”

– Julia S.

“Love my Titan. It was around 1100, I think? I’m ssbbw and I have insomnia but it really helps me. My boyfriend is like 300+ and a powerlifter and he sleeps SO good. Like sometimes he just comes over to sleep because he loves my bed that much.” Lucy S.

“I bought a Titan in 2019 and I love it, my only regret is not getting a bigger one! I have the firm style, and they usually go on sale for major holidays, anywhere from 20-30% off. They’re designed for plus size bodies and are made with latex for added support. They also had a warranty that I felt was fair. It came rolled in a box, and once the packaging was open, it was ready to use almost immediately. No funny odors. I have a full size mattress for myself and find that it’s easy for me to handle when I need to rotate it, and I’ve also been able to move it 4 times to different houses without trouble. I have mine on an 18” bed frame from Zinnus (? On Amazon) and it’s also made to support plus size bodies. Super happy with everything. I have arthritis, chronic back pain, and knee problems, and I definitely appreciate this mattress. Recently slept on a traditional mattress and was up half the night in tears from pain with the pressure points from the coils and lack of support. I tend to be a side sleeper. Also, I have the egg-carton style mattress topper on it, more so for added protection to the mattress itself. It makes the mattress pretty deep, but have found plenty of sheets to fit the bill.” Samantha M.

 “I’m also a superfat and the Titan Luxe has been awesome for me. I tried the Big Fig and it was awful- rock hard and hurt my back! I also tried the Helix Midnight Luxe which was comfortable at first but got worn out after a few months.” – Ally K.
