iComfort Sleep System by Serta: Reinventing Memory Foam

see more by

I woke up on New Year’s Day this year and after sleeping yet another night on our caved in, squeaky old bed and told my husband, this is the year we HAVE to buy a new mattress.  Seeing that the lifespan of a mattress is typically 7 – 10 years, and ours was close to 14 years old, we were long overdue.

We kept putting it off because honestly, the thought of entering a mattress showroom and a sea of white mattresses all seemingly similar lined up in a row was overwhelming to me.  Innerspring vs. memory foam. Plush vs. firm. Tons of different brands and prices.  Where do you even start?

So it was completely serendipitous that this past week I was invited with seven other bloggers to visit Chicago to see the new iComfort Sleep Systems by Serta and had the opportunity to learn all about their revolutionary new memory foam mattresses.

I actually had never even laid on a memory foam mattress before in my life and knew nothing about them.  But now after testing them out and feeling the difference from my head to my toes, I have to say their iComfort beds are the GREATEST invention to me since sliced bread and DVR!

And, just in case you missed the earlier announcement, make SURE to keep checking back here or subscribe via RSS or email to Tiny Oranges because coming up SOON I am going to be hosting my BIGGEST GIVEAWAY EVER!!

Serta has been so generous as to provide me with a giveaway of  an iComfort mattress and base of the WINNER’S CHOICE! I am so excited one of my readers has the opportunity to win one, I can’t even tell you!

This bed, no joke, is truly something out of a dream. Words can’t even come close. They are in stores now (<– just enter your zip to find a store near you) and next time you are out shopping, stop by to experience it for yourself and start dreaming about which model you would pick if you were the giveaway winner!

Warning: You might not want to get up. Ever. So curl up, take a nap, and dare the salesperson to make you leave.

This is what the cool display looks like in the stores. Don’t you LOVE the tailored upholstery at the bottom? That comes on all of the 4 different models and definitely stands out in the sea of white mattresses…

So I want to share what I learned about MEMORY FOAM and what makes Serta’s new memory foam different from traditional memory foam. Even if you are not in the market for a new mattress right now, keep Serta and their memory foam in the back of your mind when it comes time comes because you will not believe the difference in comfort!

Among the many benefits of a memory foam mattress, there are some unique characteristics that set it apart.  To be exact, memory foam offers:

* Great pressure relief
* Conforms to the body
* Motion isolation
* Relatively even wear

However, traditional memory foam also has some common complaints or drawbacks like…

* Sleeps too hot (not good!!)
* Long break in period (VERY hard at first and takes time to soften up)
* Sinking in feeling like quicksand (hard to adjust positions during sleep)
* Feels stiff when cold

With a mission to REINVENT the traditional memory foam, the Serta experts set out to make a NEW and IMPROVED memory foam addressing all of the above complaints while making new improvements. What resulted is Serta’s Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam, the FIRST memory foam infused with the support and cooling touch of Serta’s MicroSupport™ Gel.


So what does this mean to you as a mom who no doubt probably looks forward to sleep more than the average person?

The new iComfort Sleep Systems by Serta provide…

* Superior pressure relief (meaning you get a deeper, more restful sleep with less tossing and turning)
* More support where you need it (traditional memory foam sinks in and might not support your whole body, the iComfort memory foam material contains millions of MicroSupport™ gel beads that work to provide extra support to cradle you without sinking in.)
* Sleep cooler (the iComfort is 12 times more breathable than ordinary memory foam and will not trap heat against the body)
* Unchanging comfort (exceptional comfort from day one = no break-in period!)

Which essentially means they have created…

{Now only if you could get your kids to cooperate!}

And with that, I am off to take a nap!  But seriously, you will not be able to fully imagine what this incredible technology means until you feel it for yourself.  It is simply devine, comfy-cozy “let Mommy sleep in” heaven.

I can go on and on about these beds, but I will break them up into subsequent posts because there is just SO much to share!

On the trip, we were allowed to select a new iComfort bed and base for ourselves and I honestly thought it was too good to be true.  It should hopefully arrive sometime in the next couple weeks and I can’t WAIT to share my experience SLEEPING IN IT!

We ending up choosing the Prodigy with Motion Perfect® Adjustable Base (insert tears of gratitude from me.)  The adjustable base is so amazing it deserves it’s own post.  To be continued!

I hope you have a great weekend mamas and a beautiful, restful night’s sleep!

The New iComfort Sleep System by Serta

Do you believe in fate?  Have you ever had something happen to you that seemed too good to be true?  Well that’s how I felt a few weeks ago when I was invited to attend the Serta iComfort Blogger Experience tomorrow in Chicago.  And keep reading below because I have a giveaway coming up that is going to seem too good to be true to you too!

The reason I was so beside myself with excitement is because our sorry mattress is almost 14 years old, tired, sunken in and we need to say “good night” to it for good!

Just this past New Year’s Day I told my husband, “this is the year we HAVE to get a new mattress.”   However, buying a new mattress can be overwhelming as there are so many choices, so we have put it off, that is until now.

Being a part of the Serta iComfort Blogger Experience means that I get to be one of the first to experience the new iComfort Sleep System by Serta, which features the latest breakthrough in memory foam technology. Serta’s  Cool Action Gel Memory Foam is the world’s FIRST memory foam infused with the support and cooling touch of Serta’s MicroSupport gel which creates an extremely comfortable, more supportive and cooler sleep surface.

Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

I will also get to take a tour of the Serta headquarters for a behind-the-scenes look at the latest mattress technology from the company that “makes the world’s best mattress” and get to meet with Serta sleep experts who will help us pick the right model for us. The new iComfort Sleep System comes in four different models to choose from ranging from cushion firm to luxuriously plush.

I can almost feel myself sinking into this dreamy bed already.

In any case, I just wanted to share what I will be doing this week, and I can’t wait to come back and report all I learned about Serta and the iComfort Sleep System!

And, drum roll please

When I return, I will have my BIGGEST giveaway ever as not only do I receive a complimentary iComfort Sleep System, but Serta is giving me one to give away to one lucky Tiny Oranges reader as well!!!  Stay tuned mamas, soon you might be sleeping like a baby too!
