Lull Mattress Review
In today’s review we take a look at the upgraded version of the Lull mattress, a 10″ foam mattress that has gained a great popularity lately.
It is a universal comfort type memory foam mattress, designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers. They have designed their mattress to focus on comfort and support, and to us, they have done a pretty good job with this.
The mattress uses a three-layer technology that promotes healthy spine alignment and cooling and totally eliminates excessive sinkage and the feeling of being stuck into the mattress.
Although this 3-layer mattress design with the industry standard (it seems) two-toned cover could at first glance seem unremarkable, the Lull did a very good job at surprising us with a mattress that should appeal to a wide range of sleepers.
We slept on the Lull mattress and in this review give our opinion on this comfortable mattress! (Review updated)
Is the Lull Mattress Right for You?
Buy the Lull Mattress if you like:
- All foam mattresses – The Lull is an all foam mattress composed of the highest-quality foam layers. It offers the benefits of traditional memory foam while at the same time provides enough support and eliminates the feeling of being trapped in foam.
- Supportive mattresses – Although the Lull is a 10″ all foam mattress, it provides great support needed to keep your spine properly aligned in all sleeping positions.
- Responsive mattresses – The top comfort layer made of gel-infused memory foam and the transition layer prevent excessive sinkage and provide the needed response when switching positions during the night.
- Mattresses that sleep cool – The Lull mattress sleeps quite cool for an all foam mattress due to the special gel-infused memory foam used in its top comfort layer and soft and breathable cover which allows greater airflow through the mattress.
You might not like the Lull Mattress if:
- You don’t like the classic memory foam feel – If you don’t like all foam mattresses and that classic memory foam feel of hugging and contour then this mattress may not be the best choice for you.
Construction and Materials
The Lull has a pretty standard design that other memory foam mattresses follow, utilizing 3 layers of foam in its construction. The Lull mattress measures 10″ and uses all foam, forgoing the use of latex or other materials.
This mattress uses a gel infused cooling layer of memory foam which does a very good job of keeping you cool while also providing a comfortable nights sleep.
The Lull is composed of the following layers:
- A 1.5″ Top Comfort Layer – The top comfort layer of the Lull mattress is 1″ of gel-infused memory foam designed to absorb and distribute body heat and provide pressure point relief.
- A 1.5″ Transition Layer – This layer is 1.5″ of special foam blend designed to reduce motion transfer and provide support, even weight distribution and spinal alignment without the sinking sensation.
- A 7″ Bottom layer – This layer is 7″ of high density polyurethane foam that provides deep compression support for the body, serves as the foundation for the layers above, provides durability and stability to the mattress and prevents sagging.
As for the cover of the Lull mattress, this new, updated version has the same two colored cover made of 90% polyester and 10% rayon. It is extremely soft and breathable and aids in cooling.
Firmness & Support
We felt that the Lull mattress is a medium soft mattress, coming in around a 5/6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being firmness.) As always, firmness is largely weight dependent, as I compressed the top layers more than Kaye did. She felt it was a little firmer than I did, but much less so than other similar mattresses.
In terms of support, the Lull does a very good job of providing good support in all sleeping positions.
The soft top comfort layer cradled our hips and shoulders and allowed us to sink into it to a certain degree for perfect pressure relief while the slightly firmer transition layer below slowly transitioned our weight into the firmer base layer without making us sink to much into the mattress and feel stuck in foam.
The layers worked together to support our bodies and lift my heavy weight and our combined weights sleeping as a couple with ease and distributed them evenly across the bed.
So, both Kaye and myself felt supported during the night in all sleeping positions (we are mainly side sleepers). The foam layers worked well together to provide just the right amount of support without being too firm and causing pressure point pain, or too soft and not providing the support needed to sleep comfortably.
This all foam mattress does a very good job at providing a comfortable night’s sleep. The foam layers provide enough give and mold to your body, but at the same they don’t cause you to sink too far down into the mattress and feel enveloped by it.
There is a good amount of bounce with this mattress as well from the gel memory foam layer, which offers enough responsiveness to facilitate moving around in bed and getting in and out of it during the night.
The softness of the cover combined with the intial soft response from the memory foam layers really makes for a comfortable nights sleep, and this was shared by both of us.
As we have already mentioned, the top comfort layer of the Lull mattress offered enough give, cradled our hips and shoulders and eliminated any possibility of the appearance of pressure points, while the slightly firmer transition layer below and base layer did a good job of providing excellent support and keeping our spines properly aligned in all sleeping positions.
Neither of us woke up with any hip or shoulder pain which mattresses that are on the firmer side tend to cause us. In addition, the mattress slept very cool as well, which is important when two sleepers share a bed.
The Lull does a good job at preventing heat buildup due to the utilization of the gel-infused memory foam and the soft and breathable cover. We did not feel any discomfort or stickiness that is often the case with all memory foam mattresses, and Lull did a good job in this respect.
We would rate the Lull mattress as above average in terms of not sleeping hot, and is significantly better than most memory foam mattresses in this regard.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
In terms of sinkage and motion transfer, again with many of these mattresses it is highly dependent on sleeper weight. As I weigh considerably more than Kaye, around 230 lbs, I tend to sink a lot more into the mattress when sitting up or on the edge.
When sleeping, however, the Lull memory foam mattress does a good job of distributing my weight and supporting me.
Kaye did not experience this amount of sinkage as she weighs half of what I do. Nor did we experience the common phenomenon of her “sinking in a hole” or rolling towards me from the unequal weight difference on the mattress.
The memory foam layers in the Lull mattress did a good job of distributing our weight between us.
Edge support wasn’t too bad when sitting on it with all my weight, and did a good job as well during the night of not making us feel like we were rolling off the sides.
The Lull also did a good job of minimizing the amount of motion transfer between the two of us. Kaye did not felt much disruption in her sleep while I was changing positions during the night.
Smell / Off-Gassing
We did not experience a large degree of smell or odor from any off-gassing when we opened the Lull. There was a small degree of smell but nothing overpowering compared to some other mattresses we have reviewed.
Lull is pretty standard when it comes to their warranty and support offerings. Most mattresses in this category share about the same offerings in terms of sleep trials and warranty, and Lull is no exception here.

The Lull memory foam mattress does a good job of appealing to a wide variety of sleepers with a medium firmness feel on average depending on sleeper weight. The all memory foam construction does a good job of providing balance and pressure relieving support as well as a comfortable nights sleep.
The Lull mattress sleeps cool and is a good choice for couples that may have different firmness preferences without too much motion transfer or sinkage. All in all, one of the better universal comfort mattresses on the market.
