I had my first encounter with a Sleep Number bed last night in Regina, SK at the Hotel Saskatchewan.
I cranked it up to 100 and grabbed this shot:
Then hopped on and rode it town to 10:
Before doing this, I was under the impression that the bed got softer but didn’t understand that it also turned into a bed-sized bowl.
To better illustrate the point, I took the same photos with Junior Mints:
After turning the bed into a bathtub, I learned that a loud pump kicks if you hope to make the bed firmer. I say “loud” since I could hear the beds in other rooms going through the same experiments.
What about sleeping on the thing? I eventually settled in at 90. It seems like the bed doesn’t breathe very well since I woke up hot during the night.
Also, I only set one side of the bed but used the entire bed during the night. There is a clear division between the two sides.
Basically, I’m not sold on this thing.
