8 Mattresses for Plus Size Bodies That You Should Know and Check Out

Big Fig

Out of all of the mattresses for plus size bodies, the Big Fig is probably the most well known, and for a good reason! The Big Fig Mattress is a medium-firm bed that features hybrid construction.

Latex and polyfoam layers sit on top of a pocketed coil support core. The entire bed is covered in a poly-blend fabric, which has been treated with ThermoGel, which is intended to have a cooling effect.

The top layer of the mattress has a gel-infused, aerated latex layer. Aeration allows for increased airflow through this layer, and the gel infusion also helps you stay cool!

Wink Bed

The WinkBed Plus is made with a high-density polyfoam layer and a layer of responsive latex. This gives the mattress a good combination of comfort and stability! The latex layer has different firmness levels to support different areas of your body, like shoulders, hips, and legs.

This ensures even weight distribution and prevents sagging or dipping.

The WinkBed Plus’s pocketed coils are also intentionally placed, with extra support concentrated on the mattress’s edges. This results in strong edge support, which is great for those who need a little extra support getting in and out of bed!

Helix

The Helix Plus is made with plus folks in mind.

This mattress eliminates motion-transfer a lot better than many other traditional mattresses because of its deep comfort layers. So no more waking up if your partner gets up earlier than you!

This makes it a great choice for couples and cosleepers. This mattress also has a unique firm memory foam, which provides ergonomic support.

Purple

Instead of memory foam, Purple mattress has an open-grid design with gel polymer that adapts to your body. Bonus?

This mattress material keeps its shape over a long period of time!

The Purple hybrid mattress uses metal coils in the lower layer of its construction to support heavier parts of your body like your hips and shoulders! Cool right?

Nectar

Built with three layers of memory foam, this mattress feels like a deep body hug. The mattress is great for side sleepers due to its medium firmness and ample padding for your shoulders and hips.

The Nectar mattress conforms to your body and reduces pressure in the lower back and hips, no more aches and pains!


Titan

The Titan by Brooklyn Bedding is designed for plus size folks who weigh over 230 pounds. The mattress is made with layers of gel-infused memory foam as well as a second layer of TitanFlex foam, which has latex-like responsiveness for added bounce.

This, along with its foam-reinforced pocketed coils, gives the mattress a super firm and supporting feeling.

If you are a hot sleeper, the Titan is a great choice because its coils allow plenty of air circulation to help the mattress, and you maintain a comfortable temperature while sleeping.

Feel free to get cozy without fear of waking up a sweaty mess!

Bear Mattress

The 10-inch thick Bear mattress is made with two comfort layers (2 inches of gel-infused graphite memory foam and 2 inches of polyfoam) and a high-density foam support core, all wrapped in Celliant fabric.

This cover material is designed to convert body heat into infrared energy and transmit it back into the sleeper, increasing circulation and oxygen levels in tissue to speed recovery from physical activity.

Technology is so incredible! I love all the thought that went into the making of the Bear mattress!

Dreamcloud

The DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress that combines layers of memory foam and polyfoam to provide significant pressure relief for heavier sleepers.

The mattress is wrapped in a soft and breathable cashmere poly-blend cover, with a layer of polyfoam quilted into the top. The second layer of gel-infused memory foam draws excess heat away from the body, allowing it to dissipate before it builds up.

Multiple foam layers in the comfort system provide a luxurious feel that acts as a thick barrier between the sleeper and the support core.

  1. Thank you for this list. I find myself googling this very question regarding mattresses often. I usually only get around to bookmarking them though. I need a new mattress, might be my big girl (double entendre) purchase for 2021.
