Sleep Number M7 Memory Foam Bed Review

I am going to start this review by saying the item I am about to describe has changed our life forever in a good way.  Actually in a great way and it’s the Sleep Number M7 Memory Foam Bed.

About a month or so before being contacted to do this review Melinda and I actually looked at Sleep Number beds and discussed trading in our old pillow top queen bed for one and I am so thankful for this review because our M7 is amazing.

After we were told about this awesome opportunity Melinda and I visited the Sleep Number store in Christina, DE where we were given a 3D fitting known as Perfect Fit and Mark (Awesome guy) showed us how the bed works and how our bodies touch different parts of the bed at different numbers which I found extremely useful as well as amazing.  I always thought all beds were created equal but I now know that isn’t the case.  Mark was super patient and knowledgeable and answered EVERY question we had even after he knew we were there for a review and he wasn’t going to make a sale.  That didn’t stop him from making our visit very relaxed, thanks again Mark and Sleep Number.  This visit also allowed me to figure out what my sleep number is which is 50 so when our bed arrived I already knew where I needed to be.  Melinda likes her side a touch softer than I do so her sleep number is 40.  

Let me say again this bed is nothing short of amazing and I am in love finally.  In the beginning my love wasn’t so strong it was more of a very strong like, LOL.  It took a solid three to four days for my body to get used to the Sleep Number bed and that is because my body was finally able to sleep naturally like it should have been doing for the last thirty something years (don’t want to disclose my age, LOL).   You may have a totally different initial result than Melinda and I did but after the first three to four days all of our problems went away and now we are both sleeping like champs.

Lets get into a few things that make the M7 the best bed Melinda and I have EVER owned:

• Exclusive SLEEP NUMBER® DualAir™ technology lets you adjust firmness on each side of the mattress for your ideal level of comfort

• 3-inches of CoolFit™ foam with gel technology for a cool, soothing sleeping surface

• Naturally contouring and more breathable compared to the leading memory foam brand

• 12-inch bed with modern styling and soft knit fabric

I will say that the 3-inches of CoolFit foam with gel technology does work because I tend to be that guy that sweats during the night but that hasn’t been the case since receiving the M7.  Overall Melinda and I are extremely happy and impressed with out new bed so far.  Another thing that I love about the M7 is that this bed is designed and crafted in the USA!!!

The sleep number M7 fits standard bedroom furniture and your box spring will be replaced with a modular base which comes with the mattress.  Our bed was installed for us but the process seemed fairly simple so if you ever needed to move the bed you would be able to do so on your own.  What I found amazing was from the time the installers pulled into our driveway from the time they pulled out of the driveway was 30 minutes exactly and that was with them moving our old bed to the garage.  I also disturbed them some to take a lot of pictures as well as asking them a lot of questions about how their day was and how many installs they still had left to do for the day.  Even with all of my pictures and talking they were still able to be in and out in 30 now that is what I call fast efficient service.

We have had the bed about 2 weeks now and other than the first couple of days we absolutely love our Sleep Number bed. I also want to mention that if you are planning on buying any accessories for your new bed I would highly recommend the Sleep Number Total Protection Mattress pad. If you are like me you are going to look at the price and say it’s only a mattress pad but that is not the case. It is waterproof, stain resistant and hypoallergenic and we have put the first two to the test after our dog lost his mind and decided to pee on our two week old bed. Nothing leaked through the mattress pad to the mattress so I would say it was well worth the money spent. Also, the Sleep Number Total Protection Mattress pad gives you a 10 year limited warranty so there is really no reason not to get it.

I am sure if you have read this far you know how much Melinda and I love our bed and I will say that we will NEVER go back to a regular bed ever.  We are Sleep Number customers for life.  The one thing I am dreading is having to sleep on a regular bed when we travel or go on vacation.  Oh well, it will give us something to look forward to when we get home.

I Disclose


  1. That bed looks absolutely dreamy! It’s awesome that they do the entire installation and in about 30 minutes? WOW! Enoy!

  2. Awwwww looks amazing!!!!! I am in desperate need of a GOOD bed! I’ve had sleep problems for years and can contribute a not so great bed as part of the problem! It looks so comfortable – though my worry is that I’ll never want to get out of bed!!

    • LOL, Melinda is the same as you and has had sleep problems for a long time. I am not sure the bed cured them but it has helped her her a good night sleep for sure.

  3. It looks wonderful. We have talked about a Sleep Number bed for years. One day…So glad you are getting used to it now:)

  4. Ahhh! I have wanted a sleep number bed for at least 4 years now and this is TOTALLY not helping – I really struggle getting comfortable at night and getting a good night’s sleep, and I truly thing this would help my nighttime woes. Great review.

    • Thanks, it is an awesome bed for sure and their is an adjustment period but once that is over you are well on your way to the best nights sleep that you have ever gotten.

  5. OH, I am so jealous.. I have wanted a Sleep Number bed for so long and now now you make me want one even more.
    I’m glad you are both sleeping better now and it only took you a couple of days to get used to it.

  6. That bed looks super comfy! I have heard so many wonderful things about sleep number beds! When my kids are no longer co-sleeping I am totally splurging on a Sleep Number as a way to rejoice! LOL!!

    I love that they were in and out in 30 minutes – that is FAST!

    • A Sleep Number bed would be an awesome way to rejoice after co-sleeping for so long. It would be so worth it. Trust me.

  7. The next bed we own will be one of these! We slept in one in a hotel about a year ago and I was in LOVE..

  8. I have heard so many amazing things about this bed…and seeing as it’s 2 AM right now, I could just collapse into that photo! Ha!

  9. I’m dying to try this bed out! I purchased a memory foam bed and am not exactly in love with it. Thanks for the great review! Enjoy your bed! ☺

  10. We tried this bed a few years ago and actually almost bought it but decided not to at the last minute. There have been many times that we wished we had bought it – like when you wake up in the morning and can’t stand up straight because your back is killing you-LOL!

    • LOL, that is true. Well I am glad we have this bed because we love it. The first few days were an adjustment period for sure but now it is the bed bed we have ever owned. Hope you are able to get one at some point.

  11. I always wondered about this bed. I would love one. Thanks for posting all of this information.

  12. Rob, thanks for this great review. We just purchased our M7 and have had it about 3 nights now. I really want to love this bed, but am having a hard time. I was glad to see that there is an adjustment period, as I was beginning to lose hope! I have been waking up with a little bit of lower back pain, which I never had before. My husband had no problem adjusting and he loves it. What kind of problems did you have with the adjustment? The funny thing about it is that I was the one who wanted the sleep number bed and haven’t gotten used to it yet! I did finally adjust to the lack of spring from the memory foam 🙂

  13. I’m going tomorrow to the Sleep Number Bed Store. I’m so excited!!! You’re review was very helpful in letting me know what to expect and just how awesome their beds are. I will be sure to check out the M7 and also thanks for mentioning the Mattress Pad. I need to get one of those also.

  14. We have pretty much decided we need the P5 bed by sleep number, but I am not a fan of just having the platform with no headboard or footboard and I came across your blog. Is it possible to keep your bed frame and have it built this way for all of their designs do you know?
