Lull

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 1,5″ 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.

Comfort

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.

Sleeping Hot

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.

Puffy

Construction and Materials

The Puffy is a 10″ mattress made of 2 layers of proprietary designed memory foam:

  •  3″ Top Cooling layer – The top layer is made of 3″ of patent-pending Cooling Cloud gel-infused memory foam designed to provide cooling and comfort.
  • 7″ Bottom layer – This foundation layer is made of 7″ of dense support foam designed to be responsive.

The Puffy mattress incorporates a patent-pending DeepSleep technology in its top cooling layer that helps keep the mattress cool and comfortable. It also has a deep comfort core support layer that provides the underlying support for sleepers.

The Puffy has an extremely soft cover that wicks away moisture and heat and creates a cool and comfortable sleeping surface.

Firmness and Support

The Puffy is a universal comfort type memory foam mattress, designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers. Just like with the Lull, we felt it was a medium soft mattress, coming in around a 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being firmest).

Just like it was the case with the Lull, Andrew compressed the top comfort layer of the Puffy mattress more than I did as he weights considerably more than I (230lbs vs. 115), and while the Puffy was more on the softer side for Andrew as its top comfort layer compressed quite a bit under his weight, for me it was not so soft.

Andrew’s weight was fairly distributed when lying on the mattress, but when he sat up on the bed, he felt the harder support layer as he basically bottomed out.

As I have already mentioned when lying his weight was fairly distributed across the bed, and the Puffy worked well for us as side sleepers by supporting our hips and shoulders without causing numbness or stiffness which is often the case with firmer mattresses.

Comfort

The Puffy is a rather comfortable mattress. Its top comfort layer of foam provides a bit of responsiveness and bounce without causing too much sinkage typical for most memory foam mattresses, though heavier sleepers like Andrew may push down into the mattress more than those with lighter weight.

In addition, the mattress has a very soft and comfortable exterior that works together with the top comfort layer to provide a comfortable sleeping surface. The softness of the cover combined with the initial soft response from the memory foam layers does a great job at providing a comfortable night’s sleep.

Sleeping Hot

The Puffy mattress, just like the Lull sleeps quite cool due to its thin cover and the presence of the gel-infused foam layer designed to provide air flow and breathability.

It retains a minimal amount of heat, which is to be expected given its all foam construction, but it is nothing too serious, and it does not cause sweating and the feeling of stickiness usually present with memory foam mattresses.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

As for sinkage, there was a bit of it with this mattress, but it was nothing too extreme. It is true that Andrew quickly compressed its top comfort layer and came to rest on the firmer support layer beneath, especially when sitting near the edge, but I experienced a minimal amount of it, and it did not cause me to roll towards Andrew or feel as if I was sinking into a hole.

There was some motion transfer with the Puffy when Andrew adjusted positions during the night which, again, is to be expected due to our weight disparity, but there was not too much of it given its all foam construction designed to isolate and minimize motion transfer.

Smell / Off-Gassing

There was a small degree of off-gassing/smell, but it was nothing overpowering when compared to some other mattresses we have reviewed, so the Puffy mattress gets high marks in this category.

Which Mattress Is Right for You?

Choose Lull mattress if you like:

  • A medium firm feel – The Lull mattress comes in at a universal firmness option which scores 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest). It isn’t too firm to cause pressure point pain, or too soft not to provide the support needed to sleep comfortably.
  • A mattress that sleeps cool – A 1.5″ of gel-infused memory foam in the top comfort layer of this mattress does a good job of preventing the build-up of heat and the feeling of stickiness usually present in memory foam mattresses. A soft and breathable cover aids in cooling and helps create a pleasant sleep surface.
  • A supportive mattress – The combination of different foam layers in the construction of the Lull helps distribute body weight evenly across the mattress and provides an excellent support for all sleeping positions.

Choose Puffy mattress if you like:

  • Softer mattresses – The Puffy mattress scores 5-6 on a firmness scale (10 being the firmest) which places it more on a softer side. It may work perfectly for you if you are a sleeper of a lighter weight. It will provide you with pressure point relief and a good balance of support and comfort necessary for all sleeping positions.
  • Memory foam feel – The Puffy is an all foam mattress that will provide you with deep compression support, contouring and the hugging feeling typical for memory foam mattresses, but it will not cause you to sink too much and feel trapped in foam.
  • Cool-sleeping mattresses – A thin and breathable cover of this mattress and the presence of the gel-infused foam layer make it sleep quite cool. It retains a minimal amount of heat and does not cause sweating and the feeling of stickiness typical for memory foam mattresses.
