Lull vs. Loom and Leaf
If you are in the market for a new bed, you might want to consider buying some of the memory foam mattresses such as Lull and Loom and Leaf which we’ll be comparing in today’s review.
Memory foam is quite different from any other material used in the construction of mattresses. It brings a wide range of benefits including extraordinary comfort and durability. It is also known for its ability to provide deep compression support, reduce pressure points, relieve pain, and conform to your body perfectly.
Read our comparison and see why one of these memory foam mattresses may be ideal for you. Last updated
Construction and Materials
The Lull is a 10-inch universal comfort type memory foam mattress, designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers, and it is composed of 3 layers of foam.
- A 1.5″ Top layer – The top layer is made of gel infused memory foam designed to provide cooling and comfort for the sleeper.
- A 1.5″ Middle layer – This layer is made up of conventional memory foam designed to support the body and provide even weight distribution and spinal alignment.
- A 7″ Bottom layer – This layer is made of dense support foam. It serves as the foundation for the mattress and works well with the top layers to provide a supportive sleeping surface.
The Lull has an extremely soft cover made of 90% polyester and 10% rayon. It provides breathability to the mattress and aids in cooling.
Firmness and Support
The Lull is a medium soft mattress coming in around a 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being firmness). But as we always tend to mention, firmness is largely weight dependent, and for me, this mattress was firmer than it was for my boyfriend Andrew. He is 230 lbs, and he compressed the top layers more than I did.
The Lull provides a pretty good support, and its combination of foam layers distributes body weight evenly across the mattress.
It isn’t too firm to cause pressure point pain, or too soft not to provide the support needed to sleep comfortably. It is, therefore, suitable for all sleeping positions.
The Lull mattress is a comfortable one, allowing a cool and comfortable night’s sleep. The foam within its layers offers enough give to mold to your body without causing you to feel enveloped by the mattress.
There is a good amount of bounce coming from the gel-infused memory foam layer which perfectly adapts to changes in sleep position as well.
The softness of the cover combined with the initial soft response from the memory foam layers really places this mattress among the most comfortable ones we have tried out to date.
The layer of gel-infused memory foam and soft breathable cover work together to prevent the build-up of heat and the feeling of stickiness usually present in many memory foam mattresses. They work together to create a cool and comfortable sleep surface and provide you with a restful and quality sleep.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
As it has been already mentioned, sinkage is largely weight dependent and Andrew, being significantly heavier than me, sunk into the mattress more than I did. However, he did not sink down to the foundation, and I did not experience the feeling of sinking into a hole or rolling towards Andrew.
Edge support with this mattress is solid and prevented us from rolling off the sides.
There was a decent amount of motion transfer with this mattress when Andrew adjusted positions during the night which, again, is to be expected due to our weight disparity.
Smell / Off-Gassing
There was a small degree of smell when we opened and unpacked the Lull mattress, but it was nothing overpowering and dissipated within a few hours. This is to be expected due to its all foam nature and the fact that it is shipped compressed in a box.

Loom and Leaf
Construction and Materials
The Loom and Leaf is over 12″ thick and made up of 4 layers of memory foam:
- 2″ Top Cooling and Comfort Layer – This layer is a 2″ 4lb gel memory foam using a patented gel-on-gel swirl design and convoluted foam laminated to medical grade cooling gel which provides a cool, supportive sleep environment and promotes airflow furthering cooling.
- 2.5″ Mattress Core Layer – This layer is made of 2.5″ of 5lb visco-elastic memory foam for deep contouring support
- 2″ Transition Layer – This layer is a 2″ transition loft pad, which serves as a transfer layer between the base support layer and those layers above and provides better support and comfort overall.
- 5.5″ Bottom Foundation Layer – Thus layer is a 5.5″ high-density foam core base which acts as the foundation and support for the rest of the mattress.
The cover of the Loom and Leaf is vastly different from the normal thin covers of the most other memory foam mattresses. It is made from 100% organic cotton with a circular knit top, quilted with a 5/8” foam layer that provides a luxurious feel and acts as a natural flame retardant.
Firmness and Support
Loom and Leaf, unlike Lull, offers two firmness options: the Loom and Leaf Relaxed Firm, scoring 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest, and the Loom and Leaf Firm, which is an 8 out of 10. This makes the Loom and Leaf suitable for people with different firmness preferences and different body weights like Andrew and myself.
The thick construction and high-density foam of this mattress perfectly supported Andrew’s weight (230lbs) and our hips and shoulders and provided us with the necessary comfort and feeling of massage during the night.
The 12″ thickness of the Loom and Leaf, its tufted quilted cotton cover that includes a 5/8″ foam layer, the 6.5″ of specialty foams, and the exclusive gel cooling layer included in its construction make this mattress a very comfortable one.
When you first lay down on the Loom and Leaf you will feel an immediate softness due to the quilted cover with the foam layer, and the support layers will begin to sense your pressure and react accordingly providing you with a very balanced feel.
The Loom and Leaf will hug your body and provide it with a nice degree of contouring without causing the feeling of being trapped in the memory foam typical for most memory foam mattresses.
Most memory foam mattresses lead to the retention of heat and cause a sweaty sticky feeling, but this is not the case with the Loom and Leaf. This mattress sleeps cool and eliminates any feeling of discomfort caused by a build-up of heat.
The exclusive cooling gel in the top layer of the Loom and Leaf, which is usually found in hospital burn units, allows maximum cooling and airflow and helps you stay cool and comfortable during the night.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Sinkage and motion transfer on the Loom and Leaf depend on the model that you select (Relaxed Firm vs. Firm), as well as how much you weigh. The Relaxed Firm that we tested caused more sinkage when compared to the Firm model. But both models, thanks to their thick construction, did not cause us to sink down to the foundation of our bed like most of the other mattresses did.
Both Loom and Leaf models also do a good job of supporting heavier sleepers like my partner when sleeping or sitting near the edge, and they cause very minimal motion transfer with the high-quality dense foam construction doing a great job of insulating movement when turning or adjusting the positions during sleep.
Smell / Off-Gassing
As for smell/off-gassing, it is non-existent with the Loom and Leaf mattresses. They are shipped uncompressed in their natural form, which is not the case with other online mattress retailers and their memory foam mattresses that come compressed in plastic packages, so there is no any smell / off-gassing coming from the Loom and Leaf mattresses.
Customer service is something that Loom and Leaf prides itself on, and it gets high marks in this category. Upon putting your zip code on the site and determining whether the delivery is possible for your area, the mattresses are delivered directly to you by truck and professionally installed.
Other customer attributes include:
- 120-night sleep trial

- Direct in-home delivery and setup with mattress removal

The price of the Loom and Leaf mattresses comes in at $1799 for a queen. This is quite surprising given the exceptional quality materials used in their construction and the direct-to-home shipping and installation.
