Preparing for the Bed of Our Dreams with Sleep Number m9 Series #SleepNumber


This past spring I had the pleasure of discovering my local Sleep Number store.   A simple visit and chat with the store manager opened my eyes into a world of mattresses that I never knew existed.   I never knew mattresses could be so technologically advanced.  I thought a mattress was somewhat like a giant pillow with springs.  Sleep Number beds are so much more.  One visit and I was convinced a Sleep Number bed must be in our future.

But my husband?  He didn’t get it.  To be fair, he didn’t visit the store with me.  It was obvious he had no idea what he was missing.

Clearly, it was time he had a visit.

Since my last visit my local Sleep Number store has had a few upgrades in their Individual Fit experience.  Before I had to crank my head to the side (while lying down) in order to see the computer screen.  But now they have large screens at the foot of the bed and one the ceiling for easy viewing as you experience the bed.

What is it that I’m viewing on these screens?  Essentially the technology behind Sleep Number beds lets me see how my body is supported by the mattress. With a simple click of a button, I can change the level of support to fit my personal needs.  Let me show you.

My husband willingly took the test to determine his sleep number setting.  This number will vary from person to person and can even vary with the same person from day to day.  It’s all about what feels good to you.

Each Sleep Number bed is fitted with Air Chambers that adjust according to the control.  Less air makes the bed softer while more air makes the bed firmer.  This is the simple basic part of the bed.  But what is really amazing is the Individual Fit 3-D Technology.

This is the part where the bed exceeds my expectations.  Honestly, I didn’t know a bed could be this part.  The Sleep Number bed is able to adjust to your exact zone of comfort and this in-store demo allows you to see the bed at work.

My looking at the images above you can see my husbands indentation at 100 and at 30.  Yep, that is basically his butt and back:)  By changing the levels on the bed, you can reduce the level of pressure upon the body.  And of course what is so wonderful about the Sleep Number beds is that there are dual controls.  What works for you, will work for you alone.  No need to duke it out over the bed, each persona has there own controls.

After checking out the demo bed, it was time to try the memory foam experience.

I don’t know if you can tell, but it was at this point in our visit that my husband looked visibly at ease.  I think he was ready to take a nap.  Obviously, the was fulfilling its purpose quite well.  But unfortunately, my poor hubby had to return to his techie world of work after this visit!:)

My store only carries the m7 series.  But my husband and I will be receiving the m9 series.  Yes, we will be receiving the newest model in the memory foam series!  Obviously, I am thrilled.  I previously tested the m7 and found it to be my bed of choice.  And the newest model- m9- is similar but just a bit better!

While they didn’t have an actual m9 mattress, they did have a sample section to see first hand the deep level of foam goodness.  The m9 has 5″ of LuxFit foam and of course includes the temperature balance feature that allows those who are warm to stay cool and those who are cool to stay warm.

That’s a thick mattress!!

So eagerly I await my new mattress.  Of course, I will be writing about my experience once I’ve had a chance to properly try it out.  I will also share with you my current pillow-top mattress.  My husband calls it our action hero form bed.  As you can clearly see our personal indentations in the bed, even when we aren’t there.  That’s not a good thing, people.

We also purchased one of these handy mattress pads.  With a mattress of this expense and quality it is obvious that it needs to be well protected.

I will discuss further the investment price of this mattress once I’ve had a chance to give it a try at home.  Though I must say, that I believe many people (myself included) have devalued the importance a good mattress plays in their life.

If you are looking for a mattress at this particular moment, my store was having a sale on the Silver Limited Edition Bed.  Though you will definitely want to check your local store, as prices and quantity vary by store.

Don’t forget all Sleep Number beds come with a 20 Year Limited Warranty and are all designed and crafted in the USA.

I will be receiving the m9 Memory Foam Series Bed for review purposes, all opinions are my own.


  1. Wow, that bed is absolutely amazing! I love that you can make it perfect just for you! Our pillow top bed has those silly indentions in them too…not good. And sadly it is only 3 years old. 🙁 THAT is just sad.

  2. The bed looks amazing!!!!!

  3. Wow, that looks like a fantastic bed! So many great options and looks comfortable!

  4. I cannot wait to hear how you like it. We need a new bed.

  5. Oh wow, that bed looks amazing!

  6. How FUN! That mattress does look amazing, and I am currently trying to talk my husband into looking at them with me!

  7. Lucky you. I’ve heard lots of good things about their beds!

  8. That looks amazing! I love that they show you the pressure points when you lie down. Sounds like a great store and mattress. I’ve added one of these to my wish list!

  9. Oh that mattress looks fantastic! I love that there are dual controls – my hubby and I are total opposites when it comes to a comfortable bed!

  10. Wow, I wish we had stores like that around here! Sounds like you are going to be getting many good nights of sleep! 🙂

  11. We love ours, although I wish we had waited until the M series came out, had we known. Still awesome though and I will never go back to a regular bed again.

  12. That bed looks absolutely AMAZING!!! I always wanted one! My back is so bad that I know a bed like this would be fantastic. Thanks for letting us know!

  13. I like how they test you in store, that’s neat. The more and more I read about these the more I want one!

  14. I agree! It looks absolutely AMAZING – Like a dream bed!

  15. I would love one of these mattresses but I have a cat who LOVES to scratch and JUMP on my bed—-she also manages to get under the mattress covers—-I wonder if they know if this mattress is cat (or dog) proof–I know for a fact the foam part would not work–but maybe—–

  16. I didn’t realize you could go in and test out your number ahead of time. I would love for my husband and I to have a mattress we could agree on. We’re both so different in how we like the mattress and it results in one of us not sleeping well.
