Mattress Shopping
Posted on: 1st of February 2010 | Under: Life & Love

We generally spend a third of our lives in bed. To be honest, I enjoy sleeping just as much as I love art, reading and eating. I am one of those people who can literally spend an entire day snuggled under my covers. However, getting a good rest doesn’t really come that easily, especially when you don’t have the perfect mattress to pair it with.

The fiancé and I have been suffering from back aches and poor sleep for the past couple of weeks. The foam mattress that comes with our flat had already worn out its lifespan. It was sagging in all corners, and since we also have a leather bed frame, having a foam mattress made it a little too warm (even with the air-conditioner on full blast!) to sleep. So, we finally quit putting off buying a new mattress for our own sake.

We initially wanted the same Ikea sprung mattress we bought for JR‘s old single sized bed almost three years ago. But considering that we don’t really live in our own place and that our housing is somewhat temporary, we figured it would be better to scout for a more affordable alternative.

After searching online, I found, an online store that carries affordable beds and mattresses. Now, I normally wouldn’t entertain the thought of buying a mattress without seeing and trying the actual product, but seeing the number of positive feedback on the site and the numerous blogs boasting about their products and service, JR and I agreed to try it out.

The Wasaly Luxury Mattress caught our attention. With over 360+ positive reviews, we knew it was already a winner even if we hadn’t even tried the actual mattress for ourselves. For only SGD150 (about Php4,900+ or USD106), complete with free delivery, we quickly made our online order with just a few clicks. Aside from the convenient ordering process, another advantage is its payment option. Unlike most online shops, payment for orders are not done online (yes, no credit card details needed!).  Instead, cash or check payments are more than acceptable upon delivery.

Delivery of our mattress was scheduled between four to five in the afternoon last Friday (less than forty-eight hours after we made our online order!). The delivery crew ran a bit late, and from my own experience with deliveries in my old job in Manila I know there are a million and one unforeseen circumstances that can happen during delivery, so I wasn’t the least bit peeved at the delay. Instead, I just called customer service to find out about the tentative time of delivery. The lady I spoke to was more than gracious and helpful to call me back to let me know the delivery status, and after another call from the actual delivery crew, our mattress finally arrived.

We’re happy to report that our new mattress does not disappoint. No more back aches! It’s not too firm, nor is it too soft. Every night has definitely been a good night’s sleep for both of us. The only down side is that it’s more difficult to get out of bed every single morning! =P

Our new Wasaly Luxury Mattress was certainly worth every cent. :)

    That’s cute that you’re already going mattress shopping. I heard that in the US, shopping for mattresses is such a big investment that people pay in installments sometimes. Great to know that you got yourself a mattress for a reasonable price and that there was little incident in delivery.

    We eventually want to invest in a really good mattress too. But you know how temporary living status/arrangements are in Singapore, so we decided to just find an affordable one for now. :)

    Yeah, it was indeed an awesome deal. We eventually want to invest in a better mattress… but that’ll have to wait until we have our own house/place. =P Hehe!

    glad the new mattress worked out for you guys. it’s really nice and such a safe feeling, you guys can choose whatever payment option you can for the mattress. up until now, i still haven’t ordered anything online. it makes me very nervous to give out my card info. at least for these mattresses, you can even choose to pay with check or cash. you guys scored a very awesome deal too. i would definitely get something like that (if i can find it here) in case i need a mattress, which will be in a while, i guess. hehe… :)

    regarding the comment you left me, i’m the same too. i can’t stand eating out alone either. at work, if i have to get lunch for the food court or somewhere, i prefer to eat with a co-worker. any co-worker will do. hahaha… i feel kinda intimidated just eating by myself amidst a big crowd. about the event, yup, you are right, there will be others. probably very nice ones too. :) wish you all can come. :D

    The first time I saw the website, I thought it was just too good to be true. Good thing, we actually pushed thru with it, since it was indeed a great deal. :)

    I guess we just don’t like looking like a complete loner eating alone. Hehehe!

  4. Thanks for spending some time to put this interesting info together. I am going to without a doubt bookmark your website to keep coming back again. Keep up the very good work. By the way, your RSS feed won’t function in my internet browser (google chrome) how do I repair it?

  5. Intriguing… Have you composed anything concerning the memory foam or latex stuff to date?
