My new mattress and box springs arrived today. I can’t wait to curl up in bed tonight and not immediately roll into the valley in the middle of a 20 year old mattress. The new set? Tall! It’s above butt height. No more “falling into” bed for me – it’s “climbing into” from now on. It’s not just the cushy mattress part that’s taller, the box springs are too. I know this for sure because the dust ruffle doesn’t go all the way to the floor like it did with the old box springs. So, are they just making mattress/box springs taller these days? Or did the old one get shorter with age?
