Lull started selling its mattress online in late 2015 and has quickly become known for offering a solid, no-frills memory foam mattress at an extremely competitive price.
Some of the key strengths of the Lull mattress include
- Balanced foam feel: in designing the Lull mattress, the company decided to try to balance the various features of memory foam. In this way, the mattress has a middle of the road firmness and more moderate sink or hug relative to many memory foam mattresses.
- 100 night sleep trial on Amazon purchases: most mattresses purchased on Amazon have only a 30-day return window, but Lull extends their normal 100 night sleep trial to Amazon purchases.
Potential drawbacks for the Lull mattress include
- Limited track record: Lull has only been selling its mattresses online since the fall of 2015, so no one knows first-hand how these mattresses will age and how the company will support customers over the long term.
- Only one firmness option: Lull does not offer multiple firmness choices, so this mattress is best for those who are looking for a relatively firm mattress — around a 6-7 on the firmness scale.
- Muted hug and bounce: the Lull mattress makers tried to avoid excessive hug (common of many memory foam mattresses) or excessive bounce (more common in latex mattresses). In doing so, they have designed a mattress that can work for many sleepers; however, customers looking for more pronounced hug or bounce should probably look elsewhere to meet their mattress needs.

About the Lull Mattress
Lull Mattress Specifications
The Lull mattress is composed of three layers. The bottom layer is 7” of poly support foam. The middle layer is 1.5” of support foam that the company calls its transition layer. The top layer, or comfort layer, is 1.5” of gel-infused memory foam.
Unfortunately, the company does not disclose the densities of these foam layers. This makes it more difficult to evaluate the quality of the materials used to construct the mattress.
Where It’s Made
The Lull mattress is manufactured in the USA.
Sleep Trial / Refunds
The Lull mattress comes with a 100 night sleep trial. During the sleep trial, you can return the mattress and receive a full refund. In the event that you want to return the mattress, Lull will pick it up at no extra charge.
For consumers who buy the mattress through Amazon, the mechanics of the return process are different, but the company still offers the 100 night sleep trial.
Lull offers free mattress delivery within the continental U.S. Delivery is made by FedEx and usually arrives within 2-7 business days.
Lull does not include installation of any kind with delivery. Instead, the mattress is compressed into a box that is delivered to your doorstep. When you remove the mattress from the box and its packaging, it expands to reach its full size. Most of the mattress decompression takes place in the first few hours; however, it may take 24-48 hours to reach its full size.
The Lull mattress comes with a 10-year warranty that offers replacement or repair for any defects in workmanship or manufacturing. Full details on the warranty are available at https://lull.com/warranty.
While the company’s experience in selling mattresses online is limited, their customer service reputation thus far is solid. The company also has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
With strong reviews from both professional reviewers and customers, Lull has established its mattresses as a viable option for people seeking affordable memory foam.
Memory foam responds to the amount of weight or pressure that is applied to it, and many sleepers find that this can relieve pressure points and make it an extremely supportive type of mattress. The Lull mattress, composed of memory foam, is designed to have a similar type of responsiveness.
As with many mattresses that are new to the market, it is impossible to say with certainty whether the Lull mattress will be durable over the long term. However, movement and compression testing by the company and by independent organizations has indicated that the mattress should continue to perform well even with 10 years of typical use.
Lull offers only one model and thus one level of firmness, which falls around a 6-7 on the typical firmness scale. This may be slightly more firm than some memory foam mattresses on the market. By reducing the amount of hug or sink, Lull hopes to be a comfortable option for people in any sleeping position.
However, with only one firmness option available, sleepers who want a very plush or very firm feel should probably choose a different mattress.
In general, memory foam is excellent at motion isolation. That said, because the Lull mattress tried to balance the pros and cons of memory foam, it should not be expected to offer the same extremely high degree of motion isolation found in more traditional memory foams.
Some offgassing is normal with the Lull mattress as it decompresses after unboxing and unpackaging. Any smell typically dissipates within 24-48 hours, but highly smell-sensitive customers may notice this for a longer time period.
One of the benefits of the Lull mattress is that it is designed to avoid the deep sinking feeling of memory foam that can contribute to sleeping hot. The comfort layer is also gel-infused, which some — but not all — sleepers find to keep them cooler. Overall, while consumers most sensitive to this concern might opt for a non-foam mattress, most sleepers are unlikely to find the Lull mattress to be excessively warm.
The Lull mattress has less bounce than most latex or innerspring mattresses, so it might not be the ideal mattress for sex. But because it does not have as much sink and contouring as many other memory foam mattresses, it is unlikely to pose many barriers to an active sex life.
