Sleep Trial

There is a 30-day break-in period required before you can return the mattress. After that, you have 70 days -- a total of 100 nights after delivery of the mattress -- to initiate a return to get a full refund.

There is no cost for return shipping as the company can help coordinate a pickup if you are unable to donate the mattress to a local charity.

The length and terms of the sleep trial may vary if the mattress is purchased on Amazon.

Warranty

The Love & Sleep mattress comes with a limited lifetime warranty. For as long as you own the mattress, Nest Bedding will repair or replace the mattress if the materials or workmanship are defective.

Love & Sleep Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation on the Love & Sleep mattress is good but not great. The bounce from the latex-like Energex foam can cause more movement to be felt across the top of the bed.

For most customers, the motion isolation is enough to prevent nighttime disturbances, but other mattress types, including memory foam and most hybrid mattresses, have less motion transfer than the Love & Sleep.

Edge Support

The Love and Sleep mattress offers average to above-average edge support. While there is some compression when you sleep or especially when sitting on the edge of the bed, it does not give out or lose its stability.

Heat Retention

The Energex foam used in the Love & Sleep mattress can retain heat but not to the same degree as traditional memory foam. The phase-change material in the cover reduces heat buildup and responds to your body temperature to prevent overheating.

In the Medium model, there is a 1” layer of foam designed to enhance airflow through the mattress. In the Firm model, the reduced sink prevents obstruction of cooling airflow around the body.

Off-Gassing

You should expect an odor when the Love & Sleep mattress is first unpackaged and placed in your bedroom. While this can be unpleasant, it should go away within a few hours to a few days.

Support

The foam in the comfort layer of the Love & Sleep mattress is meant to combine the benefits of memory foam and latex. In doing so, it can give cushioning to primary pressure points without causing you to sink deeply into the mattress. By supporting these pressure points, the mattress is effective at maintaining spinal alignment during sleep.

Conforming

The Medium mattress has more conforming and hug than the Firm version, but both are able to tailor their compression to the amount of pressure that is applied by each part of your body.

Durability

The density of the Energex foam in this mattress is 2.8 PCF. This is lower than the density of many other foams used in comfort layers and as a result may be prone to wearing down more quickly.

Sex

The enhanced resilience of Energex foam gives it a springier feel than most memory foam. For this reason, the mattress should not inhibit sexual activity.

What Type of Sleeper is Suited to the Love & Sleep Mattress?

Every individual has specific needs and preferences when searching for a mattress. When it comes to support and comfort, sleeping position and body weight are two important considerations.

Side sleepers: people who sleep on their side will typically prefer the Medium Love & Sleep mattress. With a softer and thicker comfort layer, it can better handle the pressure at the shoulders and waist. People who weigh over 230 pounds, though, may find there to be too much sink and not enough Energex foam to provide complete support.

Back sleepers: the Firm model is normally better for back sleepers since it can help keep the waist, lower back, and upper back in alignment and without any excessive sink at any of those points.

Stomach sleepers: because stomach sleepers need a firmer sleeping surface, the Firm model is a better bet and can be a viable option regardless of a person’s body weight.

Our Verdict

The Love & Sleep mattress doesn’t have many bells and whistles, but it provides a supportive and effective mattress at a fantastic price.

The Energex foam in the comfort layer offers much of the contouring associated with memory foam but with the resilience and bounce normally found in latex. With this blend, the Love & Sleep mattress can relieve pressure points while keeping you from feeling submerged in the bed.

Phase-change material helps the mattress sleep cool, and the two firmness choices let you identify the perfect fit for you.
