Level Sleep Mattress Review
The Level Sleep mattress provides extra lumbar support to keep you in alignment. This is an all foam mattress that has great recovery, feels soft but is still supportive in the right areas. What makes this mattress unique is that is basically a zoned memory foam mattress. As far as all foam mattresses go, it’s on the pricier side compared to its online competitors but definitely has a unique feel and may be a good fit if you feel you aren’t getting good lumbar support on your current mattress.
For this review, I received the Tri Support Luxe version. This retails for $1,899 for a queen. The difference between the Luxe and the standard is that the Luxe has a top layer of latex for more resiliency and bounce while the standard uses a layer of memory foam for the top layer. You can order either version online. This mattress is shipped in a box via FedEx or UPS. After placing your order it should arrive in about a week. The shipping weight for queen is around 70lbs.
I appreciate all the research that has went into this mattress. According to their website:
While other sleep product companies introduce products without clinical research, we think it’s essential. We commissioned an IRB-approved, single-blind sleep trial, again designed by Clete Kushida, M.D., PhD., in which study participants tested their current mattress against ours.The results confirmed that the TriSupport concept was working—participants fell asleep more quickly, woke up with less pain and stiffness, and reported significantly more energy and sleep satisfaction on our mattress.
Below is a video of me on the mattress a few minutes after unboxing.

Below is a picture that shows how the mattress is made:
The first night I slept on this mattress I certainly noticed the extra support in my lumbar area. I tend to sleep on my stomach and appreciated that this kept my back in alignment while allowing my shoulders to sink in a bit more.
Here’s a picture of the inside of the mattress. You can see that the top latex layer has 3 distinct parts. The latex in the center of the mattress is firmer than the other two pieces which is where your hips will land. To make it easier there is a band across the cover of the mattress so that you know when end to position the mattress against your headboard. The band is should be slightly closer to the headboard since that is where your hips will be.
To give you an idea of how this will react, I took an exercise ball and rolled it across the top of the mattress to illustrate how it will transition from more sink to more support.
I also did a motion transfer test to show how much bounce you can expect with this mattress. It won’t be as bouncy as an inner spring mattress but because the top layer is latex it will still have some bounce. This test was done with the Luxe version of the mattress while the regular version will have less bounce to it.
In terms of heat retention, this mattress performed similar to an all latex mattress. That’s because of the holes in the top later of latex provide air to flow through. The knitted cover is also very breathable and stretchy.
A common complaint among all memory foam mattress owners is lack of lumbar support. The Level Sleep mattress is the first mattress that I have come across that specifically addresses this issue. Zoned coils systems have been around for a while and they are now available in hybrid foam/coil mattresses but many people prefer the feel of all foam because it handles motion transfer better. This mattress comes with a 110 night guarantee where you can try it for 110 nights and if you don’t like it get a full refund. This is a good mattress to consider if you like the feel of foam but just aren’t getting the support you need.
