Is Your Mattress Causing You Back Pain?

Posted March 22nd, 2022 in mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands, Uncategorized by coreyconsulting

Back pain can be caused by a number of things, making it difficult to pinpoint the source of your pain. However, there are several telltale signs to look for to determine if your mattress is at fault:

  1. Painful Mornings

If you wake up with back pain every morning, it’s likely that your mattress and sleeping position are to blame. An old mattress, or one that is excessively soft  for you, can place undue strain on your spine, resulting in morning back pain.


  1. Sleepless Nights

Having a bad night’s sleep might be caused by an uncomfortable mattress. Back discomfort can be exacerbated by your inability to sleep in a position that is both comfortable and restful.


  1. Constant Tiredness

Slow wave sleep can be disrupted by a mattress that is too firm or too soft. This is a big concern, as deep sleep is the time when your body is best able to recuperate. Your muscles and tendons begin to recover overnight when your brain shuts down to sleep and processes the day’s events.


  1. Sleeping on an Old Mattress

A sleep specialist’s recommendation is that mattresses be replaced every 7-8 years. This is due to the fact that mattresses degrade with time. Not only that, but our body weight, sleeping patterns and bone density also fluctuate over time.

Physical Activity May Help With Poor Sleep

Posted August 17th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands, Uncategorized, ViSpring mattresses by coreyconsulting

Many factors could cause you to have a poor night of rest, and a lack of physical activity may be one of them. A study done by WebMD showed that in a group of middle-aged adults in the United States (the study investigated nearly 400,000) done over eleven years showed that those with poor sleep and low levels of physical activity had a 57% greater risk for all-cause mortality, a 67% greater chance for cardiovascular disease, a 45% increase in the chance for death from cancer, and a 91% greater risk for death from lung cancer when compared to those who had a good sleep and physical activity.


That is not to say that every person with poor sleeping habits will experience these same results, but it does show that sleep is one of the most crucial forms of care we can give to our bodies. That, coupled with the recommended amount of exercise/physical activity, allows our bodies to be healthy and fight off illness. Physical activity and sleep quality independently impact an individual’s health outcomes, but they influence health conditions in a related manner.


Physical activity keeps our bodies in prime shape, allowing the organs and systems in them to work as best as they can. This helps fight off infection, illness, and chronic diseases down the road. Quality sleep ensures that your body is resting up as it should, so it has the energy to get physical activity and keep itself working all day and night correctly.


It’s easy to incorporate physical activity into your daily life – start by going on a brisk walk every day, then take it up a notch by adding in your favorite activity a few times a week, like cycling or jogging. To get better sleep, make sure your sleep environment provides you the opportunity for a good rest. That includes what kind of mattress you have. A horsehair mattress such as Hästens or Vispring mattress can help you achieve your sleep goals and leave you feeling more rested in the morning.

The adjustable bed better known as the Hästens Novoria is all about fantastically modern luxury. Handmade using the same degree of softness, comfort, and support as the rest of the renowned Hästens beds, the Novoria remains in its own class thanks to its ease of adjustment and astute attention to delicate details such as the extensive mattress piping.

The Hästens Novoria consists of only natural materials, including horsehair, cotton, wool, and flax, producing thick, breathable layers for the utmost pliability and static elimination. Collectively, these materials make the bed extremely comfortable and allow you to shift positions without causing the other person sleeping with you any disturbance. In addition, the pair of Hästens Novoria spring systems offer first-class support in keeping the body aligned during sleep.

The Hästens Novoria wireless remote makes it easy to configure the bed to your desired location. The bed is powered by motors that are environmentally sustainable and approved by the EcoDesign Directive, using just half watt of power while in standby.

Insomnia Won’t Affect Mortality

Posted November 16th, 2018 in Uncategorized by coreyconsulting

For those of you dealing with a common sleep disorder like insomnia, there is some good news to share. Despite its many negative effects, a lack of sleep is not going to necessarily contribute towards shortening your lifespan, at least according to an extensive Flinders University study involving more than thirty million participants.

The study took place over eleven years and involved people from around the globe, most of which admitted to suffering from insomnia as well as others that had received an insomnia diagnosis. These people either reported trouble falling asleep at least three times a week or admitted to sleeplessness that lasts over a month.

It’s imperative to note that while the study showed insomnia may not affect mortality, it may still cause other side effects that won’t do your body and mind any favors. Depression, diabetes, these are just two examples.

Could your mattress be a possible cause of your insomnia? Trying to find that right position or tossing and turning too much can definitely cause a sleepless night. Hastens and Vispring mattresses are here to save the day and they have proven time and time again how unbelievably comfortable they are. The best sleep of your life may be waiting for you at Brickell Mattress.

Designboom Delves Deep into the Hästens Experience

Posted July 30th, 2018 in Uncategorized by coreyconsulting

Ever since it began handcrafting mattresses in the 1850s, the Hästens brand has been regarded as one of the world’s best. Its mattresses are renowned for their comfort as well as the meticulous attention that goes into its fabrics, stuffings, and the stitching. With its impeccable reputation, the brand has gained favor among celebrities and athletes and it also holds high regard with the Swedish royal court. In fact, the prince of Sweden, Carl Philip Bernadotte is one half of the design firm Bernadotte & Kylberg which collaborated with Hästens to create its limited edition Appaloosa and Marwari mattresses.

If you’ve ever wanted to delve deeper into Hästens, its history, and the painstaking process that goes into its mattress making, the web magazine Designboom published an article titled “The Art of Mattress Making: Hästens on How They Craft the Perfect Queen Fit for a King”. The article also includes a fascinating interview with Jan Ryde, the Hästens CEO, in which he discusses the importance of sleep, the company’s ongoing innovation, and more.

If you’ve yet to try a Hästens bed, visit Brickell Mattress. We’re almost certain you’ve never rested on a mattress like these Swedish works of art.

Perfect Alignment. Perfect Support of the Body. Incredible Comfort

“IF ARE YOU…  OVER 225 POUNDS   or  6’ 3” & TALLER…”

Less than 1% of Mattresses will Fit You


Brickell Mattress of Miami has been a world leader in Custom Matching OverSize Mattresses & Mattresses for the Heavy. First of all WE CARE… But just as important is our     Flexibility in Production, Mattresses w/  Firmness Options in Support, Access to the Materials needed by the Big & Tall, & finally a rigorous- yet holistic- training in the Science of Sleep.

99.5% of mattresses sold in stores today are made for people to fit “average” height and weight people. For years Big & Tall people, many of whom are already putting their body’s through above average stress due to their occupation or even just their sheer size, have found it nearly impossible to find a mattress that is both Comfortable and properly Supportive—offering Spinal Alignment AND Support without BOTTOMING OUT—let alone one that actually lasts!!


  • FEEL Comfortable


    Alignment & Support & Pressure Points. Same applies for all people; Sturdier materials is how we achieve perfect alignment support, and pressure relief for our Larger Customers. We Adjust FIRMNESS. WE ADJUST SIZES. BRICKELLMATTRESS.COM

  • RELIEVE Pressure Points
  • SUPPORT Spinal Alignment & Muscle Support

In a normal mattress, the comfort materials and support layers/springs give more in the heavier areas of a persons body, and less in the lighter areas, allowing the person to almost “float” in a state of “minimized pressure”. Because these beds are made for foilks that 5’6” & 160lbs, when a 6’7” 293lb man lies down, he simply falls through those layers and “bottoms out” on whatever is beneath (box spring, mattress casing, etc)…



  1. EVERY BED, ANY SIZE… So if you are tall, we can make a bed that is 90”x 94” (like we recently did for a professional basketball player), or a 10’ round mattress, or even a triangle shaped mattress with obscure curves for a boat, yacht, or RV. And we don’t screw you on price!! Why should a bed 20% Larger cost 5X as much???
  2. SPECIFICIALLY MANUFACTURE MATERIALS WITH A HEAVY PERSONS’ COMFORT & SUPPORT IN MIND… Whether it’s a higher coil Tension on SPRINGS, a thicker piece of LATEX or anything else that allows us to get the ‘Comfort/Pressure Relief/Aligned Support Equation’ Just Right, we’ll do what it takes.

  3. SCIENTIFICALLY FIT OUR CLIENTS to a Mattress…. Using things like a BMI chart and actually seeing how their spine is aligned, back and shoulders are supported, and testing for desired comfort allows us to recommend the ideal bed for your Comfort Desires, Pressure Relief Needs, & your Support Needs– Improving Long-term Health by making sure you spend a 1/3 of your life in the best possible position of support. See our VISPRING Beds in Miami



            ULTRA-LUXURY OPTIONS EXCEED $20,000.00

Unfortunately discrimination laws don’t apply to what products retail stores carry. So what has happened is that most Big and Tall folks find themselves making a compromise…. Letting their feet dangle off the end of the Bed or Enduring tremendous pressure on their hips and shoulders on an uncomfortably Firm Bed in order avoid sagging through the mattress…



Athlete Mattresses Sizes For Big & Tall Chart



  1. There’s no good solution to buying a Mattress if you’re over 250 lbs.

  2. If  you’re Obese you should buy an Extra-Firm Bed

  3.Cal-King(72”W X 84”L) is as long as mattresses are made

  4. Custom Sized Beds are priced only for the Rich and Famous

  5. Buying the Thickest Mattress(or most expensive) will Solve your problems

At Brickell Mattress, we cater to each type of individual – big, tall, small, or short. There are many concerns for large people when it comes to selecting the perfect mattress for their needs. These major concerns are support, alignment, pressure relief, and longevity of the mattress under the unique stresses provided by larger people. Our Mattress Line can be custom-adjusted to use denser foams than normal, for added support and comfort for larger individuals. Thicker comfort layers are also used to conform and cradle larger body types and adequately support a much heavier person without compromising spinal alignment or comfort. Our Select Foam HD Collection is ideal for larger individuals because it employs these very aspects, offering the best comfort and support available.

Furthermore, here at Brickell Mattress we offer the ability to custom-

design Latex Mattresses to suit every person’s needs. Latex Beds offer much more support, often times having a “bouncy” or “springy” feel. In addition, Latex Beds have the longest lifetime of any type of bed for that exact reason. Our All-Natural Organic Latex is the highest-quality, most eco-friendly latex on the market today and as a result, is also the most comfortable.

If  Latex is the route you wish to take to ensure a great night’s rest each and every night, we also offer two of the world’s most luxurious spring mattress producers Carpe Diem and Vi-Spring. BEDS MADE IN EXTRA-FIRM, FIRM, MEDIUM & SOFT “Support Layer Tension”.

For taller people, we offer our Select Foam California King, which is 84 inches in length. We also build custom-length beds up to 96 inches, and even longer if you so choose.

We have the ability to custom-fit a bed to a body type by —-the process—–. For added assurance that you will be getting the best mattress for your needs, if we do not have a production model that suits you, we will simply create a custom bed for you.

Our first and foremost concern is bettering our clients’ ability to sleep, and ultimately wakeup well-rested and ready to take on each day’s new challenges with a clearer mind and more energy. By offering both our production line mattresses and the ability to custom-build your own specific mattress, we are positive that you will rest assured that you are getting the best sleep experience possible, for the best price.

Sleep Clean: Is It Time for an Organic Mattress?

Posted March 21st, 2015 in From Our Sleep Experts, Uncategorized, Vi-Spring by Mattress Matters

Sleep Clean: Organic Cotton from Natural MattressThe first thing that usually sends thinking people who care about their health running to the “organic mattress store” is the realization that most beds are soaked in flame retardant. For 99% of the beds out there, such a chemical treatment is necessary – beds have to meet certain fire safety standards, and the cheapest and best way to get synthetic petroleum based foams and highly flammable polyester fabrics, fillers and other junk to meet those standards is to cover them with poison chemical fire retardant.

If you are one of the enlightened and have made the decision to sleep organic, here is a checklist to help you compare organic mattresses and choose the one that is right for you.

Things to Consider When ‘Going Organic’

  1. Get the facts straight. There is a lot of misinformation out there and you should be aware that a mattress can be called “organic” as long as it has some organic material in it. For example, a mattress may contain organic cotton as a filler, and be advertised as an organic mattress, even if there is glue and polyurethane foam inside and a have a toxic acrylic, rayon or nylon fabric covering the entire thing.
  2. Make a list of known organic mattress materials so that when you are making comparisons, the process of elimination will be as simple as crossing off those beds that have anything else inside. Look for things like: organic wool, organic cotton, organic bamboo, organic steel, or special coir fiber which is made of shredded coconut shells. Organic wool is especially important because in its natural, untreated form, it is naturally fire resistant, antimicrobial, anti-allergen, dust mite and bed bug resistant. Equally important, it is supremely comfortable.
  3. One important note about organic latex. If you are considering a natural latex mattress, make sure it is 100% from organic non-chemically treated rubber trees. However, there is no mattress company making a 100% organic latex bed. It is not possible to whip sap from the rubber tree and produce a natural foam. There must be at least some additives.
  4. Last, just like food, if you have never heard of it, it is probably not good for you. Take mattresses with things like polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, boric acid, antimony, melamine, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers off of your natural organic mattress comparison list.

Brands That Use Organic Materials in Mattresses

We have done the research and here is our short list of acceptable organic mattresses.

  1. Hastens: Renowned Swedish mattress masters Hästens make each one of their mattresses by hand using natural materials like horsehair, flax, wool, steel and pine.
  2. Savvy Rest: Organic mattresses made in Virginia with natural latex, organic cotton and organic wool.
  3. White Lotus: A great source for healthy bedding, including natural latex mattresses, organic wool and cotton mattresses, all handmade in the US
  4. The Wool Bed Company: Natural wool mattresses, hand-made, free-form, include only material raised or grown on farmland in the USA, without any wood, metal, foam or latex.
  5. Woodstock Organic Mattress: Handmade in the USA of 100% natural materials like organic cotton, wool, horsehair, and 98% pure latex. No polyester, polyurethane foam, or other harmful chemicals are used.
  6. Editors Pick! Vispring: Hand made in England with natural materials including Shetland wool, organic cotton, and Austrian horsetail. Learn more about Vispring at Brickell Mattress in Miami.

So, Time to Go Organic?

Natural and Organic mattresses are much more comfortable than synthetic. This how people used to sleep, on top of all natural farm raised goodness, and it is still the best. You can experience the luxurious comfort of all natural organic mattresses at Brickell Mattress, South Florida’s Specialty Sleep Store.

Get Better Sleep

Posted August 28th, 2014 in Uncategorized by Mattress Matters

With the fast pace lifestyle that many of us lead, there’s one thing we never seem to get enough of…. sleep. Sleep plays a vital role in our overall well-being, so we definitely pay the price when we don’t get enough. Here are some tips on how to get better sleep.

  1. Set your bedtime, and stick to it

Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, holidays and days off. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle and helps promote better sleep at night.

bed time

  1. Create a bedtime ritual

Do the same things each night to tell your body it’s time to wind down. Your body needs time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading. Relaxing habits can promote better sleep by easing the transition between wakefulness and drowsiness.

  1. Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise has been shown to improve sleep quality, as long as you don’t work out too close to bedtime. A post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Aim to finish any vigorous exercise 3 to 4 hours before you hit the hay.


  1. Avoid Napping

Power napping may help get you through the day, but if you find that you can’t fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help you doze off later on.

  1. Get Comfortable

Design your sleep environment to provide the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be a cool temperature, and should also be free from any noise that might disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most quality mattresses.









Is It Time For a New Luxury Mattress

Posted August 13th, 2014 in Uncategorized by Mattress Matters

could-you-have-a-sleep-disorderIt is no surprise that sleep plays an important roll in your overall health, but it may be a bit astonishing to find out how critical your mattress is in this equation.  To put it in simple turns, sleeping on a bad mattress is like trying to scuba dive without the right equipment. In a 2011 poll, by the National Sleep Foundation over 90 percent of people said a comfortable mattress is important to a good night’s sleep.

By now, I’m sure we’ve heard all the benefits of getting a good nights rest from, weight loss, to a longer life span. What most people aren’t aware of are the negative effects of sleeping on a low quality mattress.

Not only is sleeping on a low quality mattress uncomfortable, but studies have shown that sleeping on a bad mattress effects stress levels, allergies, and mood. That doesn’t even include the negative effects it can have on your back.  Here are some signs that you might be ready for a new luxury mattress. If you are no longer sleeping like you used to it may time for a new mattress, especially of you’re sleeping better away from home.  You don’t need to wait for the springs to start popping out to know that its time to move on.  Dust mites feed on the dead skin cells you shed, and a whole host of them can be found in and on your bed. As many as 20 million Americans are allergic to the dust mites, so if your allergies are acting up more than usual it may be time to upgrade to a luxury mattress. Another key sign that its time to part ways is if you’re experiencing worrying, racing thoughts, nervousness, etc. before bed. These symptoms maybe related to sleep quality and maybe signs that you need a new mattress.

The most important thing to remember is when it comes to your health; sleep is not something you can sacrifice. So when choosing your new luxury mattress, remember you can’t truly put a price tag on good sleep.
