When most people think of memory foam mattresses, they imagine something soft and pressure-relieving, but what about those who want a bit of that foam feel but require additional support? Well, that’s what the Lull mattress is all about!
The Lull is a firmer-than-average all-foam mattress that is sold for an impressive, value price. I have reviewed the Lull mattress before, and I was interested to see if my feelings would be the same now – to find out if this is the perfect fit, read on for a full Lull mattress review!
Back sleepers fare well on a lot of all-foam beds. The Lull is no exception. The Lull will evenly distribute the weight across the body and supports the lower back to keep the spine aligned.
Stomach sleepers will find this mattress doesn’t strain their pressure points, but it also may cause some sinkage in the hips due to not enough support to keep the spine aligned. For mattresses that protect the hips and support the entire body.
Fans of firmer mattresses.
If for, whatever reason, someone likes a firm mattress, the Lull should work for them; it is not extremely firm but does offer the support and pushback people look for in a firmer mattress.
Those who are looking for a value mattress
No one wants to break the bank when they are shopping for a mattress – anyone who is trying to save money on their mattress purchase should consider the Lull because it currently costs under $1000 for a Queen-size with current deals and discounts.
May Not be Best For:
The Lull Mattress may suit side sleepers the best of all strict sleeping positions. The best mattresses for side sleepers are ones that cradle your pressure points and contour to your curves. Lucky for side sleepers, the Lull offers a good balance of softness and support and provides excellent pressure relief, so you can wake to feel rested and refreshed instead of sore and tight.
Fans of softer mattresses
The Lull mattress will probably be too firm for people who prefer a softer mattress. Again, its comfort layer is quite thin, so anyone who wants a softer mattress should find something with a thicker layer of soft comfort material right on top.
Those who are on the larger side might need to find a more supportive mattress and, if they sleep on their side, something with a much thicker comfort layer.
- The Lull mattress is 10” tall.
- The Lull’s cover is soft, and thin, and shouldn’t affect the feel of the mattress too much.
- The first layer of the Lull is 1.5” of gel-infused memory foam.
- Below that, there is a 1.5” foam transition layer.
- The base consists of 7” of durable support foam.
- The foam transition layer is there to help move sleepers from the soft top layer down to the firm support layer – it is firmer than the top layer and also more responsive, so it should keep sleepers from getting stuck in the Lull mattress.
- At the same time, the gel memory foam layer is also quite responsive and does not move quite as slowly as other types of memory foam. These two top layers combine to give the Lull mattress more of a balanced foam feel that has a bit of that memory foam sinkage but won’t make it difficult for sleepers to reposition at night.
- Even though it is more responsive, the gel memory foam layer should provide some pressure relief for lighter side sleepers. It will let lighter sleepers sink in a bit, and it should cushion the shoulders and hips, but larger side sleepers might not get the best pressure relief because they could press right through the thinner comfort layer and hit the base layer beneath.
- The gel infusion found in the memory foam should keep the top of the mattress from feeling extremely hot – memory foam is known for trapping heat, but this shouldn’t be too much of an issue on the Lull mattress.

Lull Mattress vs. Casper
- Feel: The Lull mattress utilizes memory foam along the top layer and polyfoam in the second layer, while Casper does the opposite. What this means is that the Lull has a more traditional hugging memory foam feel while the Casper has a more balanced, responsive feel.
- Zoned support: The Casper mattress has a zoned support memory foam layer that means more cushion at the shoulders and greater firmness along the spine and hips. The Lull doesn’t have ergonomic zoning, so the firmness and feel are the same across the entire mattress surface.
- Sleep position suitability: Thanks to Casper’s ergonomic support zones, it works for back, side, and stomach sleepers. The Lull’s uniform medium-firm support is best for back sleepers, although it’s okay for lightweight stomach sleepers and average-weight side sleepers.
- Construction: Both the Lull and Casper are memory foam mattresses that pair memory foam with two layers of polyfoam.
- Not ideal for heavier people: Both of these mattresses have average cushion and support that isn’t sufficient for most people over 230 lbs.
- Great motion isolation: Both beds are made entirely of foam with memory foam layers that dampen motion transfer, helping couples sleep without waking one another.
Lull Firmness And Feel
The top two layers are nice and soft. But the thick base support foam is firm. The contouring memory foam will provide the relief and support the average-sized sleeper is looking for. However, heavier people will likely find that they sink pretty far into the mattress, which doesn’t translate to support.
The Lull bed has somewhat of an interesting feel. It’s constructed with both polyurethane foam (polyfoam) and memory foam and feels like a super comfortable balance between the two (i.e., there’s no overwhelming memory foam feel).
In our opinion, the Lull feels like you’re laying on a soft cloud, but then the material begins to contour to your body, and you sink in a bit like the cloud is hugging your body back. We find it somewhat unique and comfortable.
Lull Mattress Good For Couples
The Lull mattress has a lot in common with some of the best mattresses for couples. It runs on the firmer side of medium-firm and provides good edge support, so couples can use the entire surface of the bed without feeling like they’ll pitch off the side of it. And sitting on the edge of the mattress won’t depress the mattress so much that you slip off. By its very nature, memory foam does a great job of minimizing motion transfer. You won’t be disturbed if your partner is moving around or getting out of bed on the Lull mattress, and neither will your partner.
Unboxing The Lull Mattress
The Lull mattress will come shipped in a box and will arrive at the front door. While it isn’t an extremely heavy mattress, it is still a particularly good idea to ask for a friend’s help transporting it inside and into the bedroom.
Once the mattress is in the bedroom, it’s time to open the box – take out the rolled-up mattress and place it on the foundation or bed frame. Now, carefully cut through the multiple layers of plastic until the mattress can fully expand – make sure not to cut too deep and damage the mattress!
Finally, just clear away all the plastic and packing materials and give the Lull mattress 24 to 48 hours to expand and off-gas.
What Makes The Lull Mattress Stand Out?
- The Lull is a streamlined all-foam mattress that is a very good value.
- The Lull is firmer-than-average and is a fantastic match for stomach sleepers and back sleepers.
- The mattress features a balanced foam feel that will let sleepers sink in a bit without getting stuck.
- It is one of the best mattresses for lightweight sleepers.
