Lull Mattress Reviews

It is nearly impossible to overstate the benefits of a good night's sleep and finding a routine and environment that will allow for a full eight hours of uninterrupted slumber is a pursuit many of us can spend a large chunk of our lives trying to perfect. Obviously, when it comes to sleep, your choice of mattress is paramount. We're here to review a selection of mattresses that can provide you with about the best night's sleep you can get and can do it night after night. In the realm of memory foam mattresses, the Lull mattress is one of the best, and we'll see how it stacks up against some of the other industry leaders.

Traditionally, spring mattresses have been about the only choice for a durable mattress with good support. But over the past few decades, foam mattresses have established themselves as a high-quality alternative, and have even eclipsed the traditional spring mattress in terms of quality, durability, support, and comfort. That's because today's memory foam mattresses are made from several layers of high-quality materials that support your weight while providing enough give where you need it most - something that spring mattresses cannot do.

Every year we see new memory foam mattress brands hit the market, and while not all are equals in price and quality, it's difficult to determine which is right for you and your sleep style. Do you need to spend thousands of dollars on a quality memory foam mattress? Is it possible to get the perfect night's sleep on a mattress that costs well under $1000? The answers to those questions are what we will explore in this review, as well as the features you'll want to look for when shopping for the best memory foam mattress.

Lull Mattress Reviews

One consideration to remember when shopping for a mattress is whether you sleep on your stomach, back, side, or you change positions throughout the night. Generally, firmer mattresses are less ideal for side sleepers since they don't allow the shoulders and hips to sink into the mattress. However, advances in memory foam technology have enabled the production of mattresses that both cushion the lighter parts of your body and allow the heavier parts to sink in, allowing you to lie flat on your side.

If you sleep on your back or stomach, however, you may want to opt for a slightly firmer mattress that will lend support along your entire body as it lies relatively flat.

Motion isolation is another big issue if you have a spouse or partner who shares your bed. Many memory foam mattresses do a great job of isolating motion to one side of the bed, meaning that as you toss and turn, your partner won't feel the movement and will enjoy a peaceful sleep. Mattresses that have the memory foam layer on top are the best at isolating motion while mattresses with latex or latex-like layers on top (and a memory foam layer under that) may end up transferring motion more to the other side of the bed.

What Is A Lull Mattress?

The Lull mattress is ideal for couples, especially those who sleep on their back or stomach. This is the classic memory foam mattress with a twist. Rather than being constructed from a single layer or double layer like the earliest versions of memory foam mattresses, the Lull mattress is layered to provide ideal comfort, firmness, and support while still having enough give where you need it.

Product Specs

While many mattresses topped by a memory foam layer can get hot at night, the memory foam in the Lull mattress is gel-infused, allowing air to flow through the memory foam layer to keep you cooler at night. Being memory foam it will not sleep as cool as some other products, but the tradeoff is that the top memory foam layer offers better motion isolation than any of the competitors on this list, meaning your partner will sleep through any tossing and turning you might do throughout the night.

The top layer of the Lull mattress is 1.5" of gel-infused memory foam. Under that is a 1.5" transition layer, which offers firmer cushioning but still allows you to sink in. These top two layers rest on a 7" layer of support foam.

Pricing

It wasn't long ago that if you wanted to purchase a high-quality memory foam mattress, as opposed to the cheap foam knockoffs available at the time, you had to spend upwards of $3000. But in recent decades, memory foam technology has continued to improve while the price of materials and finished products has dipped into a range most of us can afford without having to cash in our pensions.

Some of the best memory foam mattresses can still cost several thousand dollars - recent offering from Purple, for instance, retails for around $2,800 - but we're reviewing mattresses that give those at the high end of the price range a run for their money at about a third of that price. The most inexpensive memory foam mattress on our list, the Lull mattress, sells for around $800 without sacrificing much at all in the way of quality, while the most expensive mattresses go for around $1,000.

Casper

lull mattress - Casper

Casper Sleep Foam Mattress, Queen, 2018 Edition
  • Your purchase includes One Casper Sleep Foam Mattress 2018 Model, in Queen Size.
  • Mattress dimensions: 60" W x 80" L x 11" H. Mattress weight: 79 lbs
  • Breathable open-cell foams have tiny pores to let hot air escape, keeping you cool at night

The Casper mattress is great for restless sleepers due to a top layer that resembles latex, allowing sleepers to move freely and easily without feeling like they've sunken into the mattress. While a restless sleeper will enjoy the freedom of easily changing positions, the fact that the memory foam is not the top layer means that motion transfer can be an issue. While you are enjoying the flexibility of being able to toss and turn, your partner will feel much of that movement, and if they are a light sleeper, this can become a real problem.

The Casper mattress is one of the softer mattresses on the list, yet it doesn't create a feeling of being "sunken in" to the underlying foam, which means you can get a comfortable night's rest sleeping on top of the mattress, rather than feeling like you're sleeping in the mattress.

If edge support is a concern, the Casper mattress is not a bad choice. All foam mattresses suffer from having less edge support than traditional spring mattresses, but the edge of the Casper doesn't collapse under body weight at the edge the way some others do. While rolling out of bed is not typically a concern for most adults, having the extra feeling of stability can help you fall asleep.

The top layer of the Casper mattress is a 1.5" breathable open-cell gel memory foam under a thin, soft cover. Under that is a 1.5" layer of transitional polyfoam, which rests atop a 7" base foam layer.

Purple

lull mattress - Purple bed mattress

The Purple mattress company has made a big splash in recent years due to both the high quality and low price of the memory foam mattresses the company offers. While the company's newest offering, aptly named The New Purple Mattress, retails for just under $3,000, the classic Purple mattress is a much more affordable product that still has the quality to deserve the Purple name.

The 9.5" tall Purple mattress is topped by a thin, soft cover over a 2" layer of hyperelastic polymer dubbed the Purple Smart Comfort Grid. This layer not only helps keep the mattress - and the person sleeping on top of it - cool in the summer but also offers the right amount of support for each part of the body. Under this layer is a 3.5" transitional foam layer, with a 4" support foam layer underneath.

Purple's Smart Comfort layer is unique in its design. The grid offers support to your torso and legs, while gently collapsing under the shoulders and hips. This offers a great, comfortable night's sleep to side sleepers. This layer is easy to move around on without feeling like you're sinking in, but suffers from motion transfer to your partner.

Purple mattresses really shine when it comes to staying cool during the hot summer months. The top layer's grid design allows air to flow within the mattress, making this the coolest-sleeping mattress on the list. The drawback to Purple's complex design, however, is that it doesn't tend to be as durable as other mattresses made of a more solid foam. Still, like the other products on this list, Purple offers a 10-year warranty to cover any defects.

The Leesa mattress is a solid choice for heavier side-sleepers. While it is the same thickness as the lull mattress, the top two layers - one of Avena foam and one of memory foam - are thicker, meaning that side sleepers are less likely to sink past these layers into the more solid base foam layer.

The Leesa mattress is topped by a thin, soft cover over a 2" layer of Avena foam, a material that is similar to latex but safe for those with latex allergies. Underneath that is a 2" layer of memory foam. Supporting the top two layers is a 6" base layer of core support foam.

Like other mattresses that don't place the memory foam layer on top, motion transfer will be an issue, and the mattress will not feel as soft for back and stomach sleepers.

Price: $ Around $850 for a queen size mattress
Motion Isolation: 
3 out of 5 stars
Edge Support: 
3 out of 5 stars
Durability: 
4 out of 5 stars
Warranty:

Pros

Thick comfort layer means heavy sleepers are unlikely to sink down to the support layer

Balanced feel due to the top Avena foam layer

Top layer stays cool in warm weather

Good mix of support and softness for heavier side sleepers

Cons

Poor edge support

Lighter sleepers may not find the Leesa as soft as others

Conclusion

All the mattresses on this list can provide you with a great night's sleep, but two stand out as the best pick, depending on your sleeping style. The Leesa mattress is a great choice for side sleepers who want to let their shoulders and hips sink in, yet still have enough support for the rest of the body, all on a durable mattress that will last for decades.

For couples who don't want to disturb each other while they sleep, and especially for back and stomach sleepers, the lull mattress is ideal with its top memory foam layer that stays cool and offers a firm but comfortable support without bouncing your partner out of bed. Due to its durable construction, good edge support, motion isolation, and airflow, the Lull lands a solid 5 out of 5 stars from us.
