YES! The Perfect Mattress for Perfect Sleep

Jun 28, 2018 10:37PM ● By Martin Miron











YES! Mattress, a new local company that is very concerned with the quality of their customers’ sleep, was created by Kate MacDonald because she wanted to give them the opportunity to have a luxury mattress without having to pay luxury prices.

        These well-constructed mattresses are made with CertiPur-U.S.-certified foam, which means they are made without ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP flame retardants, mercury, lead or other heavy metals, formaldehyde or phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They also have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions for indoor air quality (the noxious new-mattress smell). The presence of VOCs means a higher probability of health complications in the form of breathing problems, skin issues, headaches/migraines and a host of others.

        Yes! Mattresses are made fresh in the USA and delivered from the factory to the home, instead of stored for months wrapped in plastic in a warehouse until they are sold, often during a “clearance” sale. MacDonald designed a cover that is made of bamboo—soft, smooth, luxurious, light on the carbon footprint and woven so no additional fire retardants are needed.

        The YES! Mattress is a combination of a firm base to avoid sagging with softer foams on top to cushion uncomfortable pressure points. MacDonald’s experience in neurology and sleep medicine, along with literally putting hundreds of foam combinations to the test, has allowed her to provide customers with utter comfort while enhancing their health.

        Several years ago, MacDonald was hit by a drunk driver and suffered from chronic pain injuries. After years of searching for sleep and comfort, her husband insisted they go in search of a new mattress. At a luxury mattress store, they found a suitable model, but with a huge price tag.

        It was then that MacDonald felt others deserved the same benefits and set out to do it without the luxury cost. She also contributes to women’s and children’s shelters, Down syndrome nonprofits, animal rescues, service dogs and veterans associations—they are the heart and soul of the YES! Mattress giving focus. She donates mattresses and cash to help these groups so that we all may get a good night’s sleep. They offer a risk-free, 100-day trial with free shipping and returns to ensure that the fit is perfect.
