Unlike traditional mattresses, an Afloat mattress supports your entire body; we’re talking every nook and cranny, eliminating pressure points. That fact alone is why so many people have tossed their traditional mattresses and made the switch to a waterbed mattress. LEARN MORE.
Water cannot compress. It will always contour to the shape of your body, regardless of your sleeping position. All other types of mattresses use foam, fiber or other materials, but they compress over time.
For side sleepers, your lower hip and shoulder must sink deeper into the mattress to keep your spine straight.
For back sleepers, it’s a little different. When viewed from your side, your spine is curved when it is in correct alignment. Your shoulder and tailbone areas need to sink deeper, while your neck and lumbar areas need to be more elevated.
Unlike other mattress types, Afloat will always contour to the natural shape of your body, instantly reforming when you move from your back to your side. LEARN MORE
The word “waterbed” probably conjures images of sun-splashed southern California circa 1972. A time when the undulating motion of a waterbed was associated with, well, let’s just say it wasn’t sleeping. And, you’d be right. But today’s waterbeds are about much more than waves and a knowing wink.
The 3 Core Components To An Afloat Waterbed
With sizes ranging from Queen to California King, you’re sure to find the perfect mattress to suit your stature and comfort.
Even waterbeds come with degrees of firmness. By adding or eliminating our memory foam accessory you can select the right firmness while keeping Afloat’s heating and cooling capabilities. No other type of mattress can do both!
The literal foundation of an Afloat Waterbed starts with choosing the right base. Whether you opt for a more traditional base or our space saver base, you’re creating your dream bed from the ground up.
“We absolutely love the bed! It’s by far the best bed we’ve ever had.”
“We LOVE our Afloat king bed. It’s so comfortable that I miss it terribly when I travel. Regular sheets fit and it looks just like a normal bed. The customer service is the best, 5 stars! We’ve only needed them when our questions were due to too many family members trying to be the boss. Get one, you won’t regret it!”
We have been married over 30 years and have always had a waterbed. About 7 years ago our Waterbed sprung a leak and we had trouble finding a replacement. We switched to a Traditional Mattress and during that 7 years we were miserable and replaced the mattress 3 times. Fast Forward to December 2021 when we found the Afloat website! We are now sleeping Happily Ever After! No more tossing and turning or waking up in discomfort! We needed a little help deciding which Afloat mattress would be best for us and we experienced great customer service! We purchased the Afloat Total dual King Eastern. Everyday my Husband says “I Love this Bed!" And so do I!
“So glad we chose the Afloat bed last year! It has been the best, most comfortable bed we’ve ever had. It’s great that it looks like a traditional mattress and takes regular sheets and bedding, too. In addition, I want to point out that even with a 100lb weight difference between us, there’s not much wave “rolling” from one side to the other. And finally, just like the vintage-inspired product itself, the Afloat customer service is the very best type of “old fashioned!” Just a wonderful experience all around! Definitely recommend to everyone! Thank you!”
“Pressure point pain caused by traditional mattresses is gone with Afloat. So comfortable. Recent week long ice storm was warm and cozy by turning up temperature on my side of the bed. Better than the one we had in the 80's.”
“We love our new bed! We both owned waterbeds in the past but have had a traditional mattress for the last 10 years. On that bed we were developing aches and pains in our back and shoulders. The first night we slept in our Afloat waterbed we noticed the difference. Every muscle felt supported and with the heated feature we could feel our bodies relax. We’re getting better sleep with 30% fewer spells of awakening, based on my FitBit sleep data, and I’m getting up in the morning with fewer aches and less stiffness. I repeat: We love our new bed! Thank you for the great product and support, and we wish you loads of success.”
“We are thoroughly enjoying our Afloat. We haven't slept this good in years. I am amazed at how I feel in the morning, completely pain free for the first time in nearly 20 years. We are more than happy to share our experience with everyone. We want all who experience chronic pain or insomnia to know there is a solution. Afloat is saving my life one night at a time!”
“I sleep like a baby in my new Afloat bed! Zero pressure points, and great temperature regulation!”
“This bed has helped my back pain tremendously.”
“The fact that I can crawl into a warm, heated, floating oasis at the end of the day makes me really look forward to bedtime. I love this bed!”
“I am so happy to have another waterbed! It's great to wake up with no neck or back pain. I don't toss and turn all night either. Wish I knew about your waterbeds years ago!”
“I have fibromyalgia and found that sleeping on a waterbed helped so much. We had the old style queen but it took up too much space and because it was a free flow the dog wouldn't get up on it. This bed is a king but it takes up less space, has plenty of storage underneath, feels just like the old style, and the dog loves it as much as we do. Great bed.”
“We added a memory foam topper and really enjoy the bed. While putting it together we discovered several quality control issues. These issues won't affect anything until we have to move the bed.”
“This bed has gone beyond my expectations - it is so comfortable I miss it dearly when away from home. These beds should be everywhere! I can keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter, saving on running the air conditioner or heat all the time. It is so easy to set up and don't even worry about cleaning it - thats one of the biggest benefits - if something spills just unzip the cover, throw in the wash, and wipe the vinyl bed. There are no dust mites, etc - perfect for those with allergies. Also the Afloat customer service team is helpful, responsive, and professional - they truly do believe in their product and stand behind its quality. I could go on and on about how much I love this bed so to sum it up its the best bed I have ever owned and cannot imagine ever sleeping on anything else.”
“We love this bed, it’s very nice!”
“We’ve owned a waterbed for years and recently switched to the Afloat waterbed. We used a traditional mattress for a couple weeks waiting for our new bed to arrive and could already start feeling joint pain. Our new waterbed really conforms to our body and relieves our joint pressure. I think that people living in the northern states would really love the beds heated feature. There are few things better than rolling into a warm bed on those cold winter nights. We are very happy with our new bed and know it will last for a long time.”
“We love our bed! We experience a lot less tossing and turning, and sleep much better throughout the night. The only downside is the space under the mattress is small which makes it a little difficult to put on our fitted sheets but I do like being able to sit on the foam edge of the bed. I was unable to do this with our original bladder and frame. Overall we both enjoy the bed very much and are getting a better night’s sleep.”
“I have long suffered from chronic neck and back pain from a car accident and this mattress has been able to help me get a better night's sleep.”
“My husband and I purchased our Afloat waterbed in December 2019 after 20+ years with a traditional waterbed and we could not be happier with our Afloat! We opted for the dual king firm mattress and honestly, we don't know when each other moves. We are getting deeper, uninterrupted sleep every night! I used to have to take melatonin on occasion to help me sleep but not anymore! My back and neck problems are a thing of the past thanks to the Afloat mattress, firm foam covering and dual heating controls. I only wish we would have "taken the plunge" sooner!!”
