IntelliBED Sapphire – The sleep I always dreamed of.
For years I had the desirable pillowtop memory foam mattress. I spent way more than I want to remember on this bed. I had it for almost ten years until I finally said enough is enough and wanted to try something new. I moved out of a cooler state to a hot climate, and I’m sure like most know, memory foam and heat do not mix even if you have the A/C going and it's still hot! Waking up to night sweats is the worst, especially when you have dogs that are a basically a living furnace laying next to you or in one case right against you at all times.
After attending a show, I inquired about a few beds on the show floor from Tempurpedic and Serta with the thought about just getting another memory foam bed with possibly more advanced features, but they had sold out immediately upon entering the show floor. Luckily for me at least, I stumbled upon IntelliBED, a brand I admit I’d never heard of before. After listening to their speech about why I should buy their bed and testing their examples available the Sapphire and the Azure, I went home that night and did some research.
There weren’t too many reviews, I suppose simply because their buyers were sleeping in, HA! But I believe it's because Tempurpedic and Serta have been the go-to beds due to their mass advertising campaign. I’ve stopped by all the local mattress stores, and not one had this brand. So I admit I was hesitant to buy at first since it is a great deal of money. IntelliBED’s price isn’t too much more than the Tempurpedic Breeze cooling bed, but since they had either chosen not to sell or truly had sold out, they lost out on a potential review and possibly a loyal customer.
Now, why did I compare them to the Tempurpedic Breeze? The answer is simple. Since purchasing this bed I have not woken up drenched in sweat, and even with my living heater sleeping against me I’ve still remained fine, even to the point that my dog now sleeps under the covers even though she had never done so in the past, so I’d say dog approved too! Although a very pricey dog bed none the less. I also have a mattress protector, and it doesn’t affect the airflow of the mattress either.
I have had this bed for almost 60 days and can’t say I regret a dime. The only issue I will bring up is that the bed is very deep and not a whole lot of sheets fit on the bed itself. I had to modify my favorite sheets that I refuse to replace with straps to hold them down, but for those not as stubborn as me it’s not a huge issue as they make specific sheets for that. I will also note my friend (400+ lbs) also bought a bed from them, the Azure, and he loves it as well. He has also commented that his sleep has improved since upgrading along with no more night sweats. The only reason I mention his weight is because it doesn’t affect the bed at all and it has decreased his loud snoring by a great deal.
We both live in the two hottest states in the US, so this is just an awesome discovery since we battle with the thermostat on a regular basis. I will update this post again in another year to see if I’ve discovered anything new or feel differently.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
