We can all agree that a good, uninterrupted night’s sleep is #goals for us all. But we’ll also be the first to admit that our lumpy, old mattress doesn’t actually help us achieve those eight blissful hours of shuteye. Yeah, it might be time for an upgrade (especially considering you should replace your mattress every seven years). Enter, the AirWeave mattress

Yes, this Japanese mattress is another one of those bed-in-a-box models, but it’s so much more than just easy to ship and unpack. For one, it’s designed with special technology that sets it apart from the regular ol’ foam, spring or hybrid models on the market. The sleep design is what turns a restless night of tossing and turning into quality zzz’s.

See, the airfiber material (aka the main core of the mattress) doesn’t only let you move easier (for those who happen to be side, back and stomach sleepers) but it distributes weight evenly—so you can stop waking up with back pain, every single morning. The mattress promises 100 percent spine alignment by relieving any back/joint pain and minimizing pressure, in addition to overall support at every angle. Airfiber is also breathable, allowing airflow to move easily throughout the mattress, which can be great for hot sleepers and those who suffer from allergies. One PureWow staffer couldn’t rave enough about how this mattress eliminated all her aches.

“Honestly, the AirWeave has changed my life. For almost three years, I was convinced my back pain was just part of life. In just three weeks, the AirWeave has eliminated all of that. I sleep through the night (which hasn't been a thing in almost a year) and I wake up actually feeling well-rested,” said Brynn. C, senior manager of strategic partnership.

While the impressive technology is obviously a major selling point, it’s also important to mention how eco-friendly this mattress is too—thanks to the non-toxic, recyclable materials used at every point in the production process. That means you can rest assured knowing you’re sleeping well and helping the environment.

Now, let’s talk about assembly. In the box, you’ll find three core pieces (two regular airfiber blocks and one dual-mode—moderate or firm—air fiber block), the inner cover and the outer cover. You’ll start by laying the outer cover on the bed frame, followed by the inner sheet and the airfiber blocks. Then place the inner sheet over the blocks before putting the outer cover on top and zipping everything up. It takes a few minutes to put the whole mattress together and Brynn noted it requires two people, but before long you’ll be able to marvel at your new mattress (which at first glance, is about seven inches thick). And it’s ready to sleep on the minute you set it up, which is the complete opposite of foam mattresses that usually suggest a waiting time between unpacking and your first snooze. 

“I'm not going to lie, the mattress starts out FIRM and takes two weeks to feel a bit softer,” Brynn notes. "Now, when I say softer, I don't mean that feeling when your body starts to leave a permanent dent in the bed, but it just seems to conform to your curves a bit and definitely absorbs your weight evenly.”

One thing you’ll find surprising about the AirWeave is that it’s completely machine washable (yes, even the mattress itself!). So, all the sweat, dirt, dust mites, you name it that can build up inside and/or on top of your mattress can easily be washed away. The covers are easy to throw in the washer but if you’re into deep cleaning your mattress, consider using cold water, mild detergent and a hose (or showerhead) to get the job done.

Thankfully, you have 100 nights to try out the mattress and a 10-year warranty just in case anything goes wrong. The AirWeave comes in Twin, Twin XL, King and California King, so the whole family can finally get a good snooze.
