Getting Used to the Feel
97% of Christeli owners are satisfied from the first night. Others may take a few nights for the mattress and their body's to adjust to each other. This "break in" period could last up to a couple weeks. During this time the Series 7™ Visco-Elastic cells are fully opening so they can adjust to temperature changes and your weight.
You can advance the break-in period by spending more time in bed the first week. Watch TV, read a book, or play with the kids. The additional movement will help the Series 7™ cells to fully expand to increase its' ability to respond to weight and temperature.
"Fresh" Mattress Smell
As with all materials, there can be a slight odor to anything that's new. Sleep products are no exception. We try to "air out" our products for as long as we can before shipping them. Most consumers don't notice anything at all, and some notice a faint new mattress smell. This is completely normal and not harmful in anyway. If you do experience any "new mattress" smells, they should completely dissipate shortly after your mattress arrives and is un-packed.
Christeli mattresses work because they are temperature sensitive -- that's what helps them conform to your body and relieve painful pressure points. If your bedroom is 60° F or less, your mattress will seem a little firmer, at first. When you lie on it, it will soften and contour to your body through your body temperature.
