I just woke up from the best sleep, ever. And it’s all because of our brand new bed. And not just any bed. A WATERBED. Did you know waterbeds are making a comeback?!? I’m so excited to share my experience trying the Afloat waterbed.
We’ve been sleeping on our waterbed for a couple of weeks now, and I feel like I have had enough sleep on here to truly tell you all about it!
Let me first start by saying, this is NOT your parents’ waterbed. Not even close. Afloat has redefined the waterbed and it’s incredible. I’ve never tried a waterbed before, so I was super excited to see what the hype was about.
Water contours and supports you better than any other mattress. Water moves as you move, so it constantly reshapes itself to support your body. The Afloat bed truly does contour you while you sleep. It’s seriously magic.
The Afloat bed was surprisingly easy to setup. It took us about 2 hours (but we had multiple distractions, LOL!). You basically put the platforms down, set up the foam sides, then add the liner! After that you put the waterbed mattress in and FILL HER UP!
What’s awesome about Afloat is it came with a care kit that includes everything you need for setting up the mattress and taking it down (if you’re moving).
Another thing I love about the Afloat waterbed is that it reduces any pressure points on your body. The water adjusts to your body fluidly and instantly reduces pressure points that can interrupt your sleep. I totally notice myself not tossing and turning as much in this bed and I wake up feeling rejuvenated and not sore in places. Other mattresses leave my hips and shoulders feeling SO OFF when I wake up.
What I love about Afloat is that it is temperature controlled! This is a game changer! The Afloat waterbed comes with a temperature control pad that allows you to adjust the temperature of your bed. Water is a great medium for heat/cool transfer + with the remote, you can easily adjust the temp to where you like it best!
So a big problem about other mattresses is that they aren’t very hygienic. Most beds have critters like dust mites and (EW!) maybe even bed bugs?! But the Afloat waterbed is impermeable to critters! And the Afloat Fabric stretch cover is machine-washable. You literally just unzip it and throw it in the wash and your bed is clean.
Keeping the bed hygienic is even more important to us now with 2 kids and a BRAND NEW PUPPY! The Afloat bed is pet friendly and puncture-resistant because the vinyl surface is loose. Also, if there are any kinds of kid or puppy accidents on the bed, you just take that fabric stretch cover off and wash it, and wipe the vinyl water mattress surface underneath! No worries! Any other mattress is a DISASTER if an accident happens on it.
Our Afloat came with a memory foam mattress cover to give it a little firmer feel. If you prefer to be even closer to the water, you can opt out of that cover!
This bed freaking rocks. It’s SO incredible comfy that it’s hard to even describe. What’s awesome about Afloat is that they give you 100 nights to try it. If you don’t love it, they will fully refund you! I promise you though, once you try it – you’ll be HOOKED!
