The 7 Signs You Need A New Mattress

The 7 Signs You Need A New Mattress

We all know that the most serious and committed relationship of our lives is with the one thing that is there for us, unconditionally, each and every night: Our mattress. Through thick and thin, in good times and in bad, we can always count on it for a little comfort... Until it’s not so comfortable anymore. So, how do we know when it’s time to say, “It’s not you, it’s me,” and begin a new search for your next great sleeping partner?

Breakups are hard, but here are 7 signs that it’s time to call it quits with your old mattress and upgrade to Lull’s memory foam:

1. You’re sleeping on a hand-me-down from the previous decade.

As we're now in the year 2020, take a moment to think about how long you’ve been in a relationship with your current mattress. An easy way for Millennials to gauge this time frame is to ask yourself: Was I laying on this thing pre-Instagram? If your answer is yes, then it is 100% time to level up your bed game, as mattresses should be replaced every 7-10 years! (Great news: Lull mattresses are super ‘Grammable, especially the fun unboxing process! Can’t you just see it on your stories now?!) Out with the old, in with the new.

2. The bags under your eyes are definitely not designer.

Sleepless nights are never en vogue. If you’ve tried every gimmicky sleep-aid potion on the market and you’re still not catching quality ZzZ’s, should you consider that perhaps you’re simply not comfortable?! As a girl who wants to show up each day as her most gorgeous self, I know that the ultimate beauty secret happens to be a fabulous night’s sleep. Get ready to reunite with your long lost friend, Miss 8 Hours, when you make the switch to Lull! Their memory foam’s innovative formulation conforms to the body, which increases your comfort levels and decreases your tossing and turning.

3. Your crush is coming up with every excuse in the book to not spend the night.

It’s a tale as old as time... Whoever has the comfier bed hosts the sleepovers. Lull’s proprietary memory foam offers a true Goldie Locks experience... It’s not too firm, not too soft, it’s just right! Upgrade your mattress, upgrade your dating life.

4. Even your precious pet would rather sleep on the floor.

Now, I know that my dog is a prissier princess than most, but she follows me around like my shadow, so I knew something was up when my bed wouldn’t do for her anymore. My spring mattress was simply not up to her standards, and she began a revolt, sleeping on the ground in protest. I’d never seen her like this before and I needed to get my cuddle buddy back pronto, so Lull’s free shipping + 1-4 day delivery was a no brainer. What can I say? I work hard so I can give my dog a better life.

5. It makes less-than-glamorous noises.

Picture this: You’re FaceTiming your new beau and you dramatically fall back onto your bed, when... your bed lets out a loud, conspicuous squeak that oddly resembles another type of squeaky noise. “Did you just...?” He says. Which do you own up to? The false “alarm,” or the fact that you’re still dozing off on a mattress from the Dark Ages? If your mattress sounds like it needs a massive hit of WD-40, I insist that you re-evaluate the dire state of your bedroom.

6. Your back has seen better days.

Let's face it, maybe you’re getting a little bit older & you need a touch more support. I’m not saying that you’re brittle, I’m just saying that you deserve better! The first sign is the muscle aches and back pain, telling all of your co-workers, “I think I’m getting old!” as you shuffle around work each morning groaning about your achy joints. Allow me to introduce you to the Fountain of Youth: memory foam. Lull’s three-layer memory foam is an exclusive combination that promotes healthy spine alignment and conforms to your body so your muscles can properly rest and recover each night.

7. “EARTHQUAKKKEEE!!!!!”

...you scream, when you are suddenly awoken by violent shaking in your bed. Oh no, darling. Not again... Your partner was simply taking a deep breath! If you can feel every movement that your other half makes throughout the night, it is definitely time to upgrade. Not only is memory foam insanely comfortable, it’s shock-absorbing, which means that you’re not going to feel your partner’s movements. A better night’s sleep for both of you with no more nightmares of disturbed sleep.

Getting cold feet with your old mattress after considering these 7 signs? Join the club. I never knew how desperately I needed a new mattress until I broke up with my old “Spring & Chain” and met my new bae, Lull. With its gorgeous, ultra-premium comfort, there’s really no better choice out there! The best whirlwind love affairs should feel easy and natural, so when my Lull arrived right on my doorstep in a petite box, I knew we were about to embark on a long, beautiful journey. Set-up took roughly 5 minutes (yes, things moved pretty quickly for us...) and since we’ve been together, every single night has been pure bliss: 8+ hours of perfect, uninterrupted sleep!
