Lull Mattress Review

The Lull mattress is the 26th mattress I have reviewed. So, its safe to say I have some context in which to compare this mattress. I was given a queen size Lull for free to review. There’s nothing terribly unique or groundbreaking about the Lull mattress but that’s OK. The more mattresses that come online, the more choices available to the consumer but given how it feels, I consider this an excellent mattress. I personally prefer memory foam and this is an all foam mattress that keeps you cool without giving you a stuck feeling.

How to Order the Lull Mattress

The ordering process is fast and easy. Just like purchasing something from Amazon or any other major online retailer, you get an order confirmation and tracking info so you know when to expect your mattress. Shipping is fast and it will arrive in a box like the one below about a week after ordering.

Overview of the Lull Mattress

I originally reviewed the Lull when it first came out in 2015 and then again in 2016 and now most recently in 2018.  These are my findings for the 2018 version of the mattress.


When you open the box there’s a card that explains how to setup the mattress. It really doesn’t require much explanation. Just put it on your bed and open the plastic, the mattress will do the rest! It also has instruction on sharing your experience on social media to win a prize.

The mattress comes shrink wrapped and is very easy to open. I usually place these mattresses right on the bed.


Specifications and Construction of the Lull Mattress

This is how the Lull mattress is made:

  • Top Layer
    1.5″ layer of of visoelastic gel memory foam to keep you cool
  • Middle Layer
    1.5″ transition layer of premium foam to help reduce motion transfer
  • Base Layer
    7″ high density polyurethane core for proper support and body alignment


How does the Lull Mattress Feel?

Like many of the other memory foam mattress reviews I have done, the Lull mattress comes in 3 layers. A supportive base layer, a transitional layer and a top comfort layer. The Top layer is made of a gel infused cooling memory foam layer. I am really impressed with this layer. It does a great job of keeping me cool. I have slept on other mattresses with a gel cooling layer but this mattress does a better job with cooling than most.

The Lull does an excellent job with motion transfer. That’s to be expected with an all foam mattress. While not quite as good as a Tempurpedic, being an all foam mattress it still absorbs most motion. See how the Lull compares to Tempurpedic.

So, how durable is the Lull mattress? Here’s a video that they created which shows the mattress on the rollator which is a device to simulate years of use on a mattress. It definitely holds it’s own and will give you years of quality sleep.

Conclusion and Recommendations for the Lull Mattress

The Lull mattress is one of my favorite mattresses so far. I did not expect to be impressed with this mattress. I thought that I had tried them all and this was just a knock off. Through my Lull mattress review, I was pleasantly surprised. Memory foam can be created with varying levels of densities and layers that interact with each other. There is a new trend to blend foams with cooling gel and other materials to enhance the sleep experience. Lull created the right combination of densities, layering and cooling materials that makes for an awesome mattress.

The Lull mattress was recently featured on the Today Show! If you saw the Today Show clip on NBC you know that this is a one of a kind mattress.

If you’re at all confused about which mattress to buy and you are new to memory foam, I recommend purchasing the Lull. They have a very generous 100-night trial where if you don’t like it within 100 days of purchasing, you can return it for a full refund. So there’s no risk in it and chances are you will love it and save hundreds over what is available in mattress stores. This mattress strikes a very good balance of softness and support. Rather than trying and returning dozens of mattresses, you can make a smart choice by going with the Lull.

You can finance the Lull mattress through Affirm with up to 0% APR. Best of all you still get to take advantage of the $150 off!

  1. How does it compare to the alexander mattress? i had a leesa which was too soft and a tuft and needle that was nice at first but became too soft, in a hard way.

  2. Hi Libby,

    Thank you for your interest in our mattress. I’m one of the sleep experts with Lull and wanted to make sure you had your question answered.

    The Alexander Mattress comes in different feel configurations so the differences may vary slightly based on which specific model you’re looking at. For the purposes of this exercise, I’ll use their “Alexander Medium” model as a point of reference.

    The first difference is the price. As of 3/24/2016, the Alexander Medium is $899.00 for their Twin size, which is their lowest priced model. Compare that with the twin sized Lull which is $550.00 regular price (with no shipping fees or tax in most of the United States).

    Compositionally, there are also differences. I’ll provide the specs for both mattresses before proceeding:

    Here are Alexander Medium’s specs. This is right off their website:
    “The Medium consists of:
    1.5″ soft quilted cover
    3″ of 4 lb Gel Memory Foam
    2″ of 4lb Visco SmartFlow Foam
    6″ 1.8 density solid Edge Support Base layer.”

    The Lull is composed of:
    1.5′ of gel-infused viscoelastic (memory) foam
    1.5′ of conventional foam
    7′ of polyurethane foam

    In terms of feel, I’m reluctant to make claims for you in either direction. Feel is a very subjective criteria and is difficult to assert one way or the other. For example, what might be too soft for you may be too firm for another.

    A better thing to do, given your history with our competitors, may be to continue researching and giving mattresses a try until you find the one that is best for you. As you can see by our mattress’s composition, there are no frills to our design. We have a top layer to provide cushion and cooling, a second layer to provide support for the body’s natural positions, and a third layer to provide a durable foundation for the mattress. Simple.

  3. Hi Chrissy,

    I’m writing to you on behalf of the sleep experts with Lull. Thank you for your interest in our company.

    With any medical condition, a good first step is to speak with your physician to figure out what your needs may be and what opportunities and benefits the right mattress may give you. Of course, we can give you examples of customers from different backgrounds who have had great experiences with Lull, but the mattress is not a medical device.

    If you would like us to discuss your issue with you and see how Lull may become a part of your life, please feel free to give us a call. Our number is 1-800-301-5845 and we are available from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

    We hope to hear from you.


  4. Ben, I recently ordered a Lull and its a little to firm for me. I’m looking for more of a tempur pedic hug/sink feel. Can you recommend a couple of mattresses that might fit the bill at a similar price point to the Lull? Or, if there are none at that price can you recommend the least expensive of those that match the tempur pedic feel? Thanks!

  5. Help… seriously, help.

    We have an m7 Sleep Number and it -still- isn’t soft enough for me, even at a setting of 15, which boggles most people.

    We’ve owned every type of mattress, foam, spring, air. None of them are soft enough. Seriously, people do NOT understand how SOFT of a mattress I need.

    I’m about 5’5″ and 129 lbs, which I know is an iffy weight zone for memory foam, as it can not offer good sink for lighter people. My husband is a VERY unsound sleeper and so reducing motion transfer it very, very important. I’m very sensitive to all senses. It has to be quiet where I sleep, I have to use a sleep mask or it isn’t dark enough.

    I wake up frequently with uncomfortably dead limbs, stiff back, hip pain, and a general feeling of having slept on a board. I tend to do better when we have a huge, fluffy mattress topper, but those go flat. I flatten pillows after about a month and then don’t sleep well. I need everything to be the softest, most pillowy quality possible. My mother has always compared me to the princess from Princess and the Pea, if that tells you anything.

    I also tend to be freezing cold when I go to bed and burning hot when I wake up, even if the temperature is the same. If we cool the room too much, though, the stiffness problem is even worse, as it feeling a sinus headache.

    I really don’t know what to do. I never, never sleep well except if I take a heavy dose of sleep aid. Then I tend to wake up less stiff and more rested.

    What mattress do you recommend?

    Hello, I have a tempur pedic cloud, about 4 years old. I’m also pushing 300 lbs, and my wife is about 135. I have lower back issues and often wake up with pain in my lower back. Do I need a firmer mattress, and if yes, what would you recommend? I am considering Lull, and Amerisleep Liberty. What do you recommend?

  7. Coming off a conventional pillow-top, firm queen size, now at 15 years old and with a depression formed in the center. I am just 150 pounds @ 5’10”, and sleep on side and back. I have never tried a memory mattress so have no idea how I would like it. Worth the risk here? Much thanks.

    My lull mattress holds in heat, I sleep really hot.
    It’s really firm but that’s okay.
    Love my lull.

    1. The Lull is going to feel a little softer and more responsive than the Cypress. I think the Lull is a good bet that will appeal to most sleepers.
