Ok ya’ll, we’re really doing this mattress review thing. After our review of the Big Fig mattress people were eager to hear if there were other beds for heavier people and lucky for you – there are! I have really liked all the mattresses we’ve slept on and I’m happy to say that I truly believe there is a plus size mattress out there for everyone!!

Introducing… WINK BEDS!

I have been so excited to write this Wink bed review. Let’s get to it! Wink Beds are made by hand the second you order one. Your mattress was specifically designed by skilled professionals. Based in Wisconsin, each mattress is made to order and shipped directly to you, cutting the cost of the middle man showroom. They offer 4 different firmness options, marketing their firmest as the “plus” option – the bed for heavier people.

What makes this bed great?

If you have always loved traditional innerspring mattresses, this bed is for you. It takes the bed you grew up with and elevates it to an incredibly supportive, comfortable, and durable sleeping experience. Wink has a 3 step back relief system which eliminates tension and aligns the spine. The triple layer heat dispersement actively wicks away heat from the body and the cool control base keeps the temperature controlled. One of the things I love the most about this bed is that it did not stink up our bedroom for days on end after being delivered. There was none of that weird manufacturing smell that so many pieces of furniture come with.

Is it comfy?

Overwhelmingly the biggest complaint I hear about plus size mattresses is that they are “just a normal mattress made excessively firm”. Not Wink. This bed still has some give to it. It has a pillow top layer that makes staying in bed and snuggling on Saturday mornings hard to resist. It’s great for side and tummy sleepers because it conforms to your body so that it’s perfectly cradled.

After sleeping on the bed for 3 months, myself and my partner (a combined weight of nearly 900 lbs) had no significant impressions in the bed. Neither of us felt that incessant pull to our own groove, and felt like we could freely move around the bed without getting stuck in a “dip”.

Wink truly is a luxury mattress. It feels like it was made with care and will last a lifetime, and apparently it will because Wink offers a lifetime warranty!

Any downsides to the Wink mattress?

I can’t say there’s much about this bed that I didn’t like! It was comfy, relieved my back pain, and my partner was able to sleep on their tummy on it. The $1700 price tag is well within the luxury mattress range but it is no doubt still not a feasible option for all. However, Wink has a lease-to-own option for those who need a financing option.

The box that Wink comes in is substantial and I’m pretty glad I didn’t have to set it up on my own. Good news is, neither do you! They have free 2-week delivery, and for an additional $99 you can get your mattress set up too.

Final thoughts

I think this bed is perfect for people who love a bed that’s not fussy and is going to last a long long time. It accommodates all sleeping positions, and you don’t have to worry about impressions. It doesn’t get much better than supporting a US based brand and offering a bed for heavier people from a luxury brand gets my big fat seal of approval!

    Hey Corissa! Thanks for the review. My husband and I were looking for a strong, solid mattress back in January, and we ended up deciding to buy a Saatva. We have been sleeping in it since February, and we really like it. The price was less than The Big Fig, plus it has a pillow-top, also. I truly think it’s also a great option for plus size people!

      I have heard of Saatva and it sounds fairly comparable to Wink! We’ve been sleeping on so many different mattresses this year to review them lol. I’ll keep Saatva in mind if we decide to review another one!

    I purchased the first bed you reviewed. As a person who spends a lot of time in bed (disability), I couldn’t be more pleased. My mattress looks like it did at the start. We don’t have to worry that me being in bed a lot (daily) will compress the mattress. My partner’s back has improved also. Thanks for your reviews! 🙌🤟

    Ps: Do you know if anyone has ever compiled a list of where to get wide shoes? I gots some fat feet with my fat bod. 😁
