Big Fig Mattress Review : Designed For Larger Bodies

Enter KATSTROUD for $$ Off At Checkout! As a plus size woman, well, let's just say it's hard to find a mattress that doesn't start to dip after six months; or in my husband's case (who happens to be over 6ft tall) has trouble just fitting without having his heels hanging over the edge.

Now a dear friend of mine would tell me to stop complaining and do something about changing this situation and so with the help of a very talented friend - I did just that!
