Below is a guest post from my daughter Kristen.
Recently we had the opportunity to try out the brand new Recore™ performance mattress. While this isn’t the typical type of blog you’ll find on here, the reason we wanted to do a review boiled down to the fact that the mattress is designed for active people – it’s not just another mattress in a box.
We’ve taken some time before releasing this review as we really wanted to have a few weeks of sleep on this mattress before providing you with our honest account. And let me be clear, we were not paid for this review. We were gifted a mattress but received no extra pay to tell you simply what the company wants you to hear. This is our honest opinion!
The verdict is that WE LOVE IT!
We had really low expectations from a mattress that comes out of a box. We’ve been so ingrained with the idea that you need to go to a brick and mortar store to buy an expensive mattress with memory foam. I mean after all, the mattress industry is 109 years old. But after trying this mattress, I’m not sure we would ever go back.
There are a number of reasons we love it. To begin with, it is extremely comfortable. We also love that you can’t really feel the movements of your partner. It’s so subtle when my husband moves around that it doesn’t disturb me. Normally I wake up several times throughout the night when he is unsettled, but I have had some of the most consistent sleeps in years on this bed. He’s even been able to sneak out in the morning without waking me which never used to happen.
One of the other things we love is that the mattress doesn’t trap heat– it is super breathable. We did some digging into why this mattress seems to be better than most in this area and it boils down to a few things. First of all – they use a graphite foam which regulates thermal energy. Secondly, there are gel microbeads that ensure the heat doesn’t get trapped. And finally, the synthetic latex provides a cooler surface than memory foam.
A few other things that may be helpful if you are considering this mattress:
- You have 120 nights to test the bed with a risk-free trial.
- The cover is machine-washable so it’s WAY easier to clean than most mattresses.
- It’s Canadian made!
- It’s non-allergenic.
- It comes in a box! You can order it directly to your home and shipping is free for 99% of Canada. Only a few super remote locations have to pay a shipping fee.
Honestly, we really do love this mattress and will likely order one soon for our guest bedroom. Feel free to comment below with any questions and we’ll give you honest feedback! Here’s the link again in case you want to learn more: https://www.recorebed.ca.
