Pro Suitable for plus sizes or people who want a heavy-duty mattress
This mattress is great if you want a bed that's strong. It's also for plus-sized couples or if you have a combined weight of over 700 pounds, as you'll need the extra support. Most alternatives are only rated to bear up to 700 pounds. But the Big Fig can hold 1000 pounds and even over 2000 pounds when used with the optional railroad steel frame.
Pro Won't let you sink into the mattress
This mattress will be able to support your weight without sagging so you'll stay on top of the mattress. On some mattresses, if you weigh more than 200 pounds, you'll immediately sink into the mattress. This makes it difficult for you to move around. The Big Fig has three inches of high-density foam. That's 50% denser than the foam in a standard innerspring mattress. High-density foam has a strong cell structure which makes it very strong.
Pro Designed to keep you cool
This mattress' topper uses a ThermoGel cooling technology that activates when you sweat, similar to the material of moisture-wicking athletic clothing. The fabric pulls the moisture away from your body so it can evaporate quickly. Also, this mattress has a layer of perforated gel-infused latex foam under the quilted top. It allows more airflow through the mattress, regulating the temperature while you sleep.
Pro Will last a long time
It has undergone several tests for durability to simulate 20 years of use with a 350-pound roller and over 200,000 cycles. The documented results showed minimal height loss or sinkage.
Pro Gives good edge support
It has its firmest foam on the edge of the bed so sitting or sleeping on its edge won't feel like falling off it. You're kept securely in place.
Pro Free delivery to your home
It can be delivered straight to your door at no extra cost.
Con Steel frame is difficult to move
Since its steel frame is made from railroad steel and is seriously strong, it's also equally heavy. Moving it will take a lot of effort and people.
Con Very firm
Anyone who weighs less than 200 pounds may find the mattress too firm.
