Adjust Yourself to The New Mattress

When you just got your new mattress online or in a brick and mortar store, you excitedly jump into your bed, but are likely to find it a daydream to enjoy a cozy, cloud-like sleep immediately. It's an annoying thing, isn't it? But you should be aware of the fact that a new mattress tend to feel firmer because it has not been slept on. In particular, the mattress in the box is vacuum-compressed and then delivered to your doorstep, making it need about 12 hours to fully expand. In addition, your new mattress needs a breaking-in period (at least 20 days) to soften and accommodate your sleep position and body weight. So actually, no matter what brand mattress you have bought, you may take some time to adjust yourself to it.    

Ask for a Return or Change

After the breaking-in period, if you still feel that your mattress is too firm, you can contact the merchant\manufacturer for a full refund or exchanging a softer mattress within the sleep trial period. In Novilla, every purchase of mattress comes with a 30-day sleep trial and free returns. Therefore, whether you're not sure what firmness to choose, or the Novilla mattress you've already purchased isn't satisfying you, you can contact us. Our service team is always on your back to support you for a better sleep.

Use a Mattress Topper or Mattress Pad

This smart way is suitable for both old and new mattresses. Compared to mattress toppers, mattress pads are thinner, whose function is to make the bed softer. And mattress toppers are usually used to modify the mattress feel (softer or firmer). Our Novilla mattress toppers are available in 2, 3 and 4 inches thick for different sleep comfort. Based on your preferences and needs, you may choose a topper to refresh your bed. 

Best for budget-conscious shoppers, Novilla memory foam mattress topper is on sale. 

Get a Compatible Bed Base

A compatible bed base is vital for your mattress. Specifically, memory foam mattresses tend to feel softer on adjustable base, foundation & platform bed. Innerspring mattresses are more compatible with a box spring. Therefore, in order to get proper support for your mattress, check whether your bed base is compatible or not.    

Reset the Room Temperature

Some mattresses are made with temperature sensitive material. For example, memory foam can respond to your body heat or warmer temperature and soften to contour your body shapes. If your mattress is topped with memory foam layer(s), then changing your thermostat to about 66 degrees Fahrenheit can soften your bed effectively.    

Would you like to enjoy snuggling into a soft, yet responsive bed? You can follow our tips and have your mattress softer. However, if the above tips cannot refresh your old bed and provide and responsive support for spinal alignment, you may need to invest in a new mattress. Both Novilla Vitality hybrid mattress and Bliss 12" memory foam mattress deliver a relatively soft feel to give you the cloud-like sensation, while responsive enough to help you sleep comfortably. And with a 30-night sleep trail and free returns, Novilla make you hassle-free.
