What Sets The Lull Bed Apart From Others?

If the features are below important to you, you will be getting a better return on your investment in the Lull bed compared to buying other mattresses:

The sleep experience is unique.

You won’t find the combination of foams that Lull uses anywhere else. This unique experience targets:

  • Spinal alignment for better support.
  • Responsiveness in the mattress for better comfort. This way…
    • You don’t get that “sinking feeling” like with other memory foam mattresses and;
    • You don’t feel like a dinghy on top of stormy seas every time your sleeping partner moves in the bed.
  • longer lasting mattress (no premature sagging) through 7 inches of core foam at the bottom of the mattress.

Free mattress return if you are not happy after 100 nights sleeping on the Lull bed.

Sure, you can get a sleep trial with other memory foam mattress companies. If you want to return the mattress at the end of the trail, some of them want you to pay for that out of your own pocket.

Lull will pick it up from your home free of charge with no questions asked if you decide not to keep it.

Environmentally-friendly.

  • Certi-PUR certified memory foam mattresses are better for the environment. They contain no ozone depleters.
  • Their mattress production results in a lower carbon footprint.
  • Lull is a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. This means Lull looks at the impact of their product on the environment in a more responsible way.

Why Is This Mattress Healthier To Sleep On?

The Lull mattress is healthier that your traditional memory foam mattress.

How did I calculate the healthy mattress rating?

There are many health hazards lurking in a mattress that you should know about. I consider these hazards when I calculate the Healthy Mattress Rating.

My Better Bed Solutions Healthy Mattress Rating for the Lull mattress is 3 stars out of a possible 5. People rave about the comfort and support of memory foam. I get that. But memory foam is a man-made substance derived petroleum.

Made in the U.S.A.

Yes

People rave about the comfort and support of memory foam. I get that. But memory foam is made in a laboratory. This contrasts to mattresses made organic and/or natural materials.

What's all the controversy about chemical flame retardants?

Most mattresses are treated with chemical flame retardants like TDCPP, PBDE and TCEP.

Toxins in mattresses

With the Lull bed, its unique engineering stops a fire in the mattress from intensifying. How? Lull uses a fire retardant sock around the mattress rather than chemicals to slow down a fire. Does the fire retardant sock contain any chemicals? I’m not sure.

What is Certi-PUR Certified memory foam?

Certi-PUR certified means the Lull mattress contains::

  • No ozone depleters
  • No PBDE, TDCPP and TCEP flame retardants
  • No mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • No formaldehyde
  • No phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).

Unlike other Lull mattress reviews, I did not want to gloss over this Certi-PUR certification. It’s really important to your health to sleep on a non-toxic mattress.

Live in California? Read this.

Proposition 65 has identified over 800 harmful chemicals in common household goods like your mattress. These chemicals are known to lead to birth defects, cancer and other harmful effects.
 
Lull do not believe their mattress contains these chemicals. However, they are obliged to issue a warning to all Californians that their mattress may contain these chemicals.

Chemical-based glues

Mattress companies tend to use a chemical-based glue to keep the foam layers together.  The more layers, the more glue.

Just waiting to hear back from Lull to see if the glue they used is chemical-based.

That new mattress smell

So you’ve heard of that new car smell?

Memory foam mattresses have a new mattress smell too.

Lull roll and compress their mattresses in a plastic cover. They pack them into small boxes for convenient delivery. The box, the size of a large mini-fridge, is 19” x 19” x 43”.

When your mattress gets unwrapped, it can give off a chemical smell, called “off-gassing”.

Lull says you can sleep on your mattress 6 hours after unwrapping. I have a different opinion. You should sleep on when you think the smell has gone.

Some people don’t even notice the smell.

Others do.

If you find the smell offensive, air your mattresses near an open window or in direct sunlight.

Are you allergic?

You spend anywhere between 6 to 8 hours sleeping on a mattress.

Are you allergic to mold, mildew, dust mites, wool, latex or other allergens? Be confident your sleep surface is allergen-free. Buy a hypoallergenic mattress like the Lull. It does not contain wool or latex. That’s a relief for me because I am allergic to wool.

An organic mattress is the healthiest

A Certi-PUR certified memory foam mattress makes it a healthier choice.
 
By far the healthiest choice in a mattress is one made with certified organic materials. It contains the fewest number of toxic chemicals inside your mattress.

But I know what you’re thinking. An organic mattress would cost twice the price of a Lull mattress. You would be pleasantly surprised! Check some options here.

Improve the air quality in your bedroom

Did you know that the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside (Source: Environmental Protection Agency)? The bedroom is one of the rooms in your home where you spend a lot of time asleep. What else can you do to improve the air quality in your sleep environment?  Click to read my tips here.

Mattress  Composition and Construction

Why is mattress composition so important?

Mattress composition is all about the materials inside the Lull mattress. This is what you will be spending 6-8 hours each night sleeping on. The materials towards the top of the mattress are closest to your nose, mouth, and face.

Why is mattress construction so important?

Would you like to know how the materials are layered together to give you support and comfort? There are 3 layers to the Lull mattress and 2 covers.

The thickness and function of each layer is important.

Composition and construction

Lull mattress reviews 2

The composition and construction of the Lull Bed

The cover

The synthetic polyester rayon cover is stretchy fabric. It is a snug fit over the mattress.
 
Remove the cover for the spot removal of stains. It sits on top of the sock.
 
Don’t put the cover in the washing machine. If you feel your cover is getting dirty, order a replacement cover from Lull customer service.

The fire retardant sock

The sock is a lightweight material that encases the mattress like the cover does.  The sock should not be removed.

I could not find a picture of the sock but 16 seconds into the video below you will see how the sock wraps around the mattress.

 

The comfort layer

The top layer is made with 1.5 inches of viscoelastic foam. This is regular memory foam.

Whatever people tell you about memory foam, remember it’s sourced from petroleum-based products. That’s why the Certi-PUR or certified foam is better for you than non-certified foam.

Lull infuses gel into the top layer of the memory foam mattress to break up the dense foam. This creates more air flow and absorbs body heat. The idea is, with more air flowing between you and the top of your mattress, you will stay cool and comfortable.
 
Sleeping on memory foam can feel like you are sinking into the mattress. The typical memory foam mattress is 2 or 3 inches thick at the top. This contrasts to the Lull. The 1.5″ top layer of the Lull mattress creates less of that “sinking” feeling. It also makes it easier to move around the mattress.

The transition layer

Most manufacturers make the support layer 2-3 inches thick. Again Lull is different. The 1.5 inch thick support layer stop that “sinking” feeling. You can move around and get in and out of bed without trouble.
 
The Transition Layer ensures you don’t feel your sleeping partner move in the night. Based on the Lull mattress reviews I read on Amazon.com, the Lull mattress transition layer is doing its job. It’s made with “latex-like” foam.

The support layer

Combined with the Transition Layer, the Support Layer ensures your spine stays in alignment and your hips and shoulders are comfortable.

Being 7 inches thick and made with high-density polyurethane foam, this is the backbone of the mattress and will minimize premature sagging.

Is This Mattress Firm Enough?

The difficulty with reviewing the firmness of a foam mattress is that everyone has their own definition of firm.

Some people said in their Lullbed reviews that the mattress wasn’t firm but rather “supportive.”

Others felt it was too firm and have added on a feather mattress top.

What is the firmness?

Here is an independent view provided by Consumer Reports on the firmness of the Lull Mattress. On a scale of 1 (very soft) through to 10 (very firm), Consumer Reports rated the Lull bed a 6 out of 10 for firmness.

Image supplied with the kind permission of Lull

Based on the Lull Bed reviews I found, the best way I can describe the firmness of this mattress is that you do sink into the foam mattress, but you don’t sink all the way like in a waterbed. The mattress stays firm and doesn’t move around like you would in a waterbed.

What type of sleeper would find this mattress supportive?

Most mattresses are specialized for one sleeping position. Lull claims its mattress is an all-rounder. It’s  good for sleeping on your back, stomach, or your side. This is helpful if you sleep with someone who sleeps in a different position to you.

From the Lull Mattress reviews I saw, people who were side sleepers appreciated the mattress the most. They found the foam conformed to their body but also stabilized, reducing pain in hips, shoulders, and neck. If you have hip problems and you sleep on your side, your shoulders and hips will sink in just enough to leave your spine aligned. That reduces back pain.

Breaking in your new mattress

Some of the people who wrote Lull Mattress reviews preferred the feel of a coil spring mattress rather than being enveloped in the firmness of a foam mattress. Choosing memory foam vs. spring mattress does come down to personal preference.

But, if you are willing to make the change to a memory foam mattress, give yourself time to “break-in” your mattress.

Every day, people “break-in” new shoes.

People “break-in” a new job.

Give it 10-30 days for your body to adapt to a brand new mattress, whether its memory foam or not. Accept it will take time for you to feel comfortable after the transition from your old mattress to your new mattress.

This is why the 100 Night Trial for the Lull bed is such a good thing. If you are not happy with your Lull mattress at the end of the trial, they will come and pick it up from your home.

How Comfortable Is The Lull Mattress?

Here are the reasons the Lull mattress was given a 4 star Comfort Rating by Better Bed Solutions.

Do you tend to sleep hot?

Here are some features of the Lull mattress that will help cool you down if you sleep hot:

  1. The top foam comfort layer is infused with a cooling gel;
  2. This top layer is also 1.5 inches thick compared with the average 2-3 inch thickness of most competitor mattresses;
  3. The poly/rayon cover is breathable.

These features will enhance the flow of air between you and the top of the mattress.

Motion Transfer

One Lull bed review said he could not feel his wife move during the night. It’s the Transition layer in a mattress that impacts the transfer of motion between bed partners the most.

The Lull bed Transition layer is 1.5 inches thick with “latex like” bounce and recovery from movement.

Edge Support

Edge support is all about the bed’s ability to support you when you sit on the edge of the bed. You may do this every morning when you’re putting your shoes and socks on.

Based on the customer reviews, the Lull bed didn’t do too well with edge support.

How Versatile Is This Mattress?

The Lull bed comes in all the standard sizes.

The Twin XL is great for taller teenagers.

One person in their Lull mattress review said they put two Twin XLs together to create an “Eastern King” sized bed.

Do you live in a place with too many stairs? Consider buying two twins instead of a full/double so it’s easier to maneuver.

How Can You Make Your Lull Mattress Last Longer?

How Long Is A Memory Foam Mattress Good For? About 5-8 years, here are some ways to make your Lull mattress more toward the 8 year mark or a little longer.

Adhere to the 500 pounds weight limit

If you and your sleeping partner weigh up to 250 lbs each, your Lull mattress will last longer than if both of you weigh more than 500 lbs combined.

If it’s you and two dogs, the recommended weight limit is still 500 lbs.

Rotate your mattress

Since the Lull bed is only one-sided, you can’t flip it. Rotating your mattress every month  – for the first 3 months – and then every 3 months thereafter is a great way to lengthen the life of your mattress. To make it easy to remember, what I do is every time the season changes, we rotate our memory foam mattress.

To rotate your mattress, move the top of the bed, to the bottom (head to toe). Keep going in the same direction (clockwise) every time you rotate the mattress.

Buy a mattress protector

When you sleep on a foam mattress, it’s like sleeping on a big sponge.

If you spill a drink in bed, sweat a lot or any other body fluids get inside that mattress, it will be absorbed like a sponge.

Over time, these liquids may cause 2 issues that will reduce the lifespan of your new Lull mattress:

  • Your mattress may develop mold and mildew;
  • Your mattress can sag prematurely.

To avoid these issues, buy a waterproof mattress protector. It will keep your new Lull mattress dry from spills and liquids and help the mattress retain its shape for longer.

People who bought the Lull mattress on Amazon most commonly bought the Luna Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector.  I dig a little more into this protector under the Accessories heading later on in my review.

Why Is This Mattress Better For The Environment?

No ozone depleters

The ozone layer is the stratosphere around the earth that protects us from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. Ozone depleters, therefore, are chemical substances used in the production of a mattress that erodes the beneficial ozone layer. The Lull bed has been certified as containing no ozone depleters.

Lower carbon footprint

A carbon footprint refers to the volume of carbon dioxide produced by a company in manufacturing their product. Lull considers their carbon footprint consciously by:

1. Rolling up and compressing their mattresses into a cardboard box the size of a mini-fridge. Lull estimates this cuts down packaging materials by 70%, which is substantial. Imagine how much more packaging would be required if Lull had to put a box on each mattress that was flat and fully expanded like you see in the mattress shops?

Image supplied with the kind permission of Lull

2. Less petrol used on delivery runs. In any size delivery truck, you can pack more compressed mattresses in a small box compared to a couple of life-size mattresses. A van can make more deliveries without having to come back to the warehouse to fill up his truck. That’s how Lull saves on petrol and additional pollution. Contrast this to the mattress store scenario. The manufacturer transports an order of mattresses to the store. The store (typically) organizes for delivery to your home. See how the store delivery and transport scenario involves two steps vs. the Lull scenario which just involves one step? The Lull mattress goes from their warehouse and gets delivered straight to your front door.

3. Being a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. This means that Lull makes every effort to produce and distribute their products in a way that minimizes the impact on our planet.

4. The company either donate or responsibly recycle mattresses that are returned to them during the 100 day trial period. They do not try to re-sell the mattress.

Dispose of your mattress responsibly

Like a lot of mattress makers, Lull does not pick up and dispose of your old mattress when your new mattress gets delivered.

Reviews on the Lull website

Lull has collected over 7,000 customer reviews on their website from genuine verified purchasers of their mattress.  The average customer rating of their experience with the Lull mattress was 4.7 out of 5.

All About The Lull Bed Company

Lull is based in Santa Barbara, California. They strive to create American jobs and partner exclusively with suppliers who exemplify the same values and standards they are committed to maintaining.

The founder wanted to create a better shopping experience after feeling annoyed with the standard showroom experiences. And he was committed to crafting an environmentally friendly alternative for foam mattresses.

That commitment ensured that they were able to create some proprietary foam layers that you were not able to get anywhere else.

Better Business Bureau rating

Lull also enjoys an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). That’s the highest available and means that there haven’t been any complaints about the company, its products or its customer service. A lot of Lull mattress reviews actually don’t mention this rating. The BBB rating is a sign of credibility and trust. This is super-important when buying a mattress online.

Customer-focused

Lull knows when you are buying a mattress sight-unseen, you need to try it and return it if it doesn’t suit you. Because they are fully online and you purchase direct, you save a large amount of money. Their 100-day trial gives you plenty of time to decide if the mattress works for you or not.

The company is also very responsive. They respond to questions on Amazon. They have a chat feature on their website and are very responsive.

You can call their toll-free number. And you can email support@lull.com if they have questions or concerns.

They are committed to providing a delightful experience to their customers.

Giving back

Lull works with a variety of charities around the United States donating mattresses. And they are involved in their local community of Santa Barbara. Once again, a lot of Lull Bed reviews don’t mention that this mattress company gives back to the community.

What’s the Unboxing Experience Like?

Most of the Lull mattress reviews I saw said that unpacking their mattress was a simple and straightforward task.  Some people did say that if you need to move the mattress around, it’s best to have 2 people, especially since the mattress has no handles on the side. If you are on your own, my tip is to roll the box into the room where you will be sleeping on it and unpack it onto the foundation you have. This will minimize any strenuous efforts to move the mattress on your own.

 

How Does The Lull Mattress Compare To Similar Mattresses?

Lull vs Tempurpedic

The Lull mattress is about ⅕ of the price of the Tempurpedic. When comparing price Lull vs Tempurpedic, Lull comes out on top.

The Lull bed can be purchased directly from Lull and will arrive in about 1-4 business days via FedEx. You also can purchase from Amazon and have it arrive the next day using Amazon Prime. In comparison, Tempurpedic takes weeks after they receive your order. The Tempurpedic is large and bulky. Looking at delivery times for Lull vs Tempurpedic, Lull wins.

What about convenient delivery in the Lull vs Tempurpedic challenge? The Lull mattress arrives rolled up in a small box.

Like a mattress that bounces back? Lull vs Tempurpedic, the Lull recovers faster than Tempurpedic. This is useful when you’re asleep so you don’t get that”stuck” feeling when you move and switch positions in bed.

Lull vs Tempurpedic, they are both good at temperature management.

The result of the Lull vs Tempurpedic challenge? The bottom line is that you have better options with Lull. They offer 100 days of sleeping on their mattress to decide if you like it. You don’t lose any money if you decide to return it. Tempurpedic is usually 30 days and then they may charge a restocking fee.

Lull vs Novosbed

Like Lull, the Novosbed can also be ordered directly from the manufacturer’s website. You can choose among three levels of firmness. Lull only offers one.

If you want more variety in the firmness offered, go with Novosbed. But remember, you can adjust the firmness and softness of the Lull with pads, or you can get it built-in with the Novosbed. Novosbed is more expensive than the Lull.  

The Lull bed is 10” and Novosbed is 11” and more foam. However, Novosbed does not offer a special cooling top layer. So if you sleep hot, Lull vs Novosbed, I’d go for Lull.

Would I choose Lullbed vs Novosbed? This one is more of a toss-up. 

Lull vs Leesa

Thie Lull vs Leesa comparison is probably the most difficult to make. It’s like comparing Honda and Toyota.  

They both are 10 inches thick.

They both use three layers of foam.

They are about the same in cost.

Mmmmm, no clear winner coming out for the Lull vs Leesa comparison yet!

Both mattresses arrive compressed via an independent delivery service within a few days after ordering.

Both mattresses have a 100-day trial where you get a full refund, and they will pick up the mattress so you don’t have to send it back.

So based on the Lull mattress reviews I’ve seen, the Lull vs Leesa comparison is even up to now.

What’s the main difference for Lull vs Leesa mattress? Leesa uses an egg crate top layer to provide airflow and extra bounce. Lull uses the cooling gel-injected foam that provides a cushier experience. Tough choice here for Lull vs Leesa.

You can read my detailed Leesa mattress review here.

Lull vs Tuft & Needle

The Tuft & Needle mattress is less expensive than the Lull.

Both mattresses are constructed similarly in that they’re 3 layers and 10 inches thick.

They are both made from foam.

OK this Lull vs Tuft and Needle comparison is proving difficult as well!

They both have 100-day trials where they will pick up your mattress if needed. Tuft and Needle will donate the mattress you return to charity. For any mattresses returned to them, Lull will donate the mattress or responsibly recycle that mattress.

The big difference for Lull vs Tuft & Needle is the way each mattress is constructed.

The Lull bed uses a memory foam on the top with the cooling gel injected. And that memory foam allows it to isolate motion slightly better in independent tests. So if you sleep next to someone at night, you’re not as affected by their motion.

The Tuft & Needle uses a specialty polyfoam for its comfort level which provides a firmer experience. My research from the Lull mattress reviews vs. Tuft & Needle mattress reviews picked up that you sink into the Tuft & Needle a little less than the same weight on a Lull.

So, the Tuft & Needle is more similar to a standard coil mattress where you feel more on it. Some people think of this as the mattress pressing back rather than you sinking in.  If you have back or hip pain, you may want to go with the Lull so your body can sink in letting your spine be better aligned. So for me, the clear winner in the challenge of Lull vs Tuft & Needle is Lull.

Lull vs Casper

The Casper mattress is 9.5” thick compared to Lull’s 10”.

Additionally, Casper’s top layer is made with latex. If you’re allergic to latex, you will want to choose the Lull.

Both companies provide a 100 night trial period for a risk-free investment. Lull and Casper also both offer free shipping with quick delivery.

From extensively comparing reviews of the Lull mattress vs Casper mattress, Casper feels bouncier and more like a coil mattress. This is something that’s more of a personal preference, and you’d have to try it out yourself to decide what you prefer.

The Casper mattress is better for side sleepers because it is softer. The Lull has been reported as better for side, back and stomach sleepers.

On the price side for Lull vs Casper, Casper is more expensive than the Lull.

Accessories For Your Lull Mattress

Mattress protector

Mattresses aren’t cheap. A waterproof hypoallergenic mattress protector could extend the life of your Lull mattress:

2. By providing a barrier against common mattress allergens like mold, mildew and dust mites. A protector is an extra layer of defense between you and the mattress.

This is the mattress protector that most buyers of the Lull bed also bought with their Lull mattress purchase on Amazon.com.

Foundation

The Lull mattress suits these kinds of foundations:

Image supplied with the kind permission of Lull

Lull strongly recommends putting the memory foam mattress on a box spring or bed frame.

Slatted Base Foundation

If you prefer a slatted base, you need the slats no further than 3 inches apart to provide proper support.

The most popular foundation that Lull bed customers purchased with their mattress was a slatted base foundation.

The two models they most preferred were the Zinus wooden and the Zinus metal foundation.

Pillows

You should renew your pillows every 18 months. That way they continue to adequately support your neck and head so you don’t wake up with a headache or stiff neck. Pillows can lose their shape over time.

I would also renew my pillows every 18 months for better hygiene as well as continued support. A UK study in 2001 found that up to one third of the weight of your pillow could be made up of bugs, dead skin and house dust mites and their feaces.

If you need new pillows, I’ve recommended the number one best selling pillow on Amazon.com below, made with Certi-PUR certified memory.

Pillow Protector

If the type of pillow you have prevents it from being washed, you could make your pillow more hygienic with the addition of a pillow protector.

Every night as you sleep on your pillows, skin cells flake off and embed themselves in your pillow. Dead skin cells are food for dust mites. A pillow protector stops the dead skin cells getting inside the pillow underneath your pillow cover.

If you are allergic to dust mites or squirm a little at the thought of dust mites (and their poo) living in your pillow, here is the most popular pillow protector on Amazon.com.

  • Best seller on Amazon.
  • 4 stars out of 5 from over 1,000 customer reviews
  • 100% cotton.
  • Anti-microbial.
  • Blocks dust mites, bed bugs and other allergens.
  • Protects from saliva, sweat, stains and other liquids.
  • Full refund offered on items returned within 30 days.

Sheets

Lull recommends using normal sheets that are the proper size so it’s not compressing the mattress.

You won’t need sheets with deep pockets because the mattress is 10 inches thick.

To keep your sheets as fresh and as hygienic as possible, read my guide on how often should you wash your sheets.

If you are buying new sheets, a question I often get from readers of this blog is “Do I need to wash new sheets?

 

Frequently Asked Questions Sourced from Lull Mattress Reviews

Will this mattress be supportive if I have back problems?

This mattress is described as firm. If you consider 10 as very firm and 1 as very soft, this mattress sits at a 6 out of 10. My research shows people with back problems may do well with a firmer mattress. It really depends on your definition of firm.  

What can I do if I find this mattress too firm?

This mattress, like any mattress, will soften up over time so mattresses start out a bit too firm intentionally. Call Lull Customer Service (before the end of your 100 Night Sleep Trial) and they will send a special topper that’s just the gel.  

What can I do if I find this mattress too soft?

Lull also offer a support layer if you feel their mattress is too soft. Call Lull Customer Service before your 100 Night Sleep Trial is over. 

How long does delivery take?

The mattress is delivered right to your door. FedEx Ground takes 1-4 business days depending on where you live. They will provide a tracking number once it’s shipped so you can track it.

Will this mattress smell when I unpack it?

This smell (called “off-gassing”) is common for memory foam mattress. In some of the Lull mattress review I read, some people said there may be an initial smell from the plastic covering the mattress. Lull are confident this smell will go away after 24 hours. They said the mattress should fully expand in two to four hours, but give it six hours to fully open out before sleeping on it.  This is what I did to completely eliminate any “chemical” smell with my memory foam mattress:

1. Let the mattress full expand

2. Lay it on its side

3. Put it near a window or even better in direct sunlight

4. Leave for 1-2 days.

Does the foam get hard in cold weather?

No. But be aware that for best results, Lull recommends their mattress be used between 63-70 degrees. 

Should I use a mattress pad for protection?

Yes. Lull recommends using some form of protection to keep mattress clean. Just be certain it’s the correct size so you’re not compressing the mattress down. 

Will this mattress sag?

Every mattress will sag over time. But Lull is the first manufacturer I’ve seen that have you covered in the mattress warranty if your Lull bed sags greater than 1 inch.  There are things you can do to slow down this aging sagging process before you need to completely replace your mattress

Do I have to do anything special when it arrives?

1. Remove the plastic

2. Watch it expand

3. Wait six hours.

It’s at this point that Lull says your mattress should be ready to sleep on. However, some of the Lull bed reviews I read said there was some off-gassing smell.  If you think the mattress smells, leave it another 24 hours before sleeping on it.

Can I flip this mattress?

You can rotate it, but it’s not designed to be flipped over like standard coil mattresses. Additionally, they did not put handles on this mattress which makes it difficult to manipulate.

Is this mattress good for someone who is pregnant?

Yes, it provides support while allowing your hips and shoulders to sink in. That cradles the belly providing necessary support. You may not need a special pillow to keep your spine aligned.

Is this mattress good for someone with back pain?

Yes, it provides the proper support while allowing your spine to stay in alignment while sleeping. However, if you have major back issues, I would check with your health professional.

Can I try this mattress out in a store?

No. The Lull mattress is only available for purchase online.

What if I buy this mattress and it's not for me?

Use the 100 day sleep trial to try out the mattress. If, after a couple of days into the trial, you are having doubts, contact the Lull Customer Service team for suggestions to accommodate your concerns. If you decide this mattress isn’t for you, Lull will pick it up from your home and refund your full purchase price. Then the mattress will be recycled according to standards set by the Mattress Recycling Council.

What's the biggest negative about this mattress?

The best source of Lull mattress complaints were the 13 critical customer reviews I found on Amazon.com.

The most common theme was that customers didn’t find the mattress firmness to their liking. It was “pretty firm”, “fairly firm” and “killed my back”.

Another customer found the bed too soft.

This highlights how personal firmness is. The good news is that Lull offer a 100 night trial and none of these dissatisfied customers had trouble returning their mattress.

As at the time of writing this post, there were 59 reviews from genuine customers verified by Amazon as purchasing a Lull mattress. Although there were 13 critical reviews (22%), 46 reviews were positive (78%). That’s a good sign of a  mattress that is largely pleasing their customers..

Can I wash the mattress cover?

While you can take off the cover, it’s not machine washable. Lull recommends removing the cover for spot removal of stains only.

What does the 10 year warranty cover?

10 year in defects covering sag of the mattress greater than 1”, flaws in the cover zipper and flaws in the mattress construction.

Final verdict

You can’t go wrong with a 100 day trial and excellent customer service.

Most companies recommend at least thirty days to evaluate. Foam mattresses are often firmer when they first arrive and you need time to get used to the mattress just like it needs some time to get used to you.

People either love or hate the feel of memory foam. With Lull, you can try it out to decide if it’s good for you.

I hope you have found this post better than all the other Lull mattress reviews online!
