The Loblolly mattress is an 11 inch all foam mattress that provides a little bit of everything. It’s a well built mattress with good support.
You can purchase the Loblolly online direct through their website. Your mattress will arrive in a box and come with a nice welcome letter and a few stickers. It comes with a 100 night guarantee which is becoming the standard for online mattress companies. It also has a 10 year warranty for particular defects. The fine print is inside the welcome letter you receive with your mattress.
The Loblolly unboxes the same as the other mattresses I review that come in a box. Unfortunately I can’t find the video to share but you can look at other unboxing videos for a frame of reference. What stood out for me was that the box itself was a little bigger than most queen size boxes I have received. Also, I noticed that the UPS tracking information has this listed at 93 lbs which is on the heavier side.
When you first open the box you get some extras including some stickers and a post card all inside a brown paper envelope. The warranty information is also included in here so make sure to keep that.
The other cool part is that you get 2 free pillows, something I totally forgot about.
Here’s how deep the pillow is
The pillow also has a zipper
Here’s me squishing the pillow to give you a sense of how it will react. The pillows come wrapped within the mattress itself so they will also off gas for a bit. To get rid of some of the fumes, I would tumble try the mattress on low heat with a dryer sheet for about 10-15 minutes.
This mattress reminded me of the Yogabed only a little bigger. I found it to have a bit less motion transfer than the Yogabed though. Its also a great looking mattress. The cover is unzippable
The mattress measures 11 inches:
Here’s what the layers of the loblolly look like:
The top layer is gel infused memory foam with “other specialty formulated ingredients to absorb body heat” not sure what that exactly is.
Below that you have 1″ of memory foam, below that is another 1.5″ of memory foam that will recover quicker and finally a 7.5″ supporting base layer.
Here’s how the layers react:
Overall this mattress strikes a good balance between comfort and support. It is substantial enough that you won’t bottom out on it by jumping into bed. At least I didn’t and I weigh around 215 lbs. The foam recovers fairly quickly and the cooling layer seems to its part. You’ll notice in the infrared video below that the heat dissipates quickly from my hand impression.
This mattress handles motion transfer well. Here’s the bowling ball test done on the Loblolly:
Loblolly is a great choice for people looking for a solid middle of the road mattress, not too firm, not too soft. They use quality materials and the bonus pillows are a great addition to complete the set. Pair this with a set of Bedface sheets and you have a new bedroom!
