The Lull Mattress is available in one firmness option, which falls around a 6 on the firmness scale. (This scale is from 1-10, with 10 being the most firm and 1 being the least firm.) This medium firmness can be suitable for all sleeping positions and usually a good place to start when determining your preferences.
The Lull is a memory foam mattress, constructed in three layers. The suport core is 7 inches of polyurethane foam, designed to add durability and structure to the bed. Next is a 1.5-inch transition layer of a firm proprietary foam blend, designed to support the spine while preventing the “sinking” feeling that is common with memory foam mattresses. The top comfort layer is 1.5 inches of viscoelastic memory foam, infused with gel to aid in cooling.
Lull has not released the density of any of the foams used in the mattress. The cover is a woven blend of polyester and rayon. Lull’s foams are Certi-Pur certified and the company is a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, meaning they involve sustainable practices throughout their products and business.
The Lull is compressed, vacuumed sealed in plastic, and shipped to your door in a labeled box. The Lull requires absolutely no assembly.
The Lull usually ships within 1-2 days of ordering and arrives 1-5 days later via FedEx ground. Shipping is free and available throughout the contiguous United States. Shipping is available to Alaska and Hawaii for an additional cost. International shipping is not available.
When the Lull arrives, you should remove it from the packaging as soon as possible so the mattress can begin to expand. It may take up to several hours for the bed to completely regain its full shape.
When purchased directly from Lull, this mattress comes with a 100-night sleep trial. If you are unhappy with the mattress for any reason during that time, Lull will arrange to pick it up at no cost and refund your full purchase price.
Unlike many mattresses, the Lull also offers the full 100-night trial on beds purchased through Amazon. These returns must be made through Amazon’s site, but customers will still receive a full refund.
Lull offers a 10-year limited warranty on its mattress. During that time, the company will replace or repair any mattress if there are defects in craftsmanship. Full warranty terms can be found here.
Lull does not offer in-home delivery or old mattress removal.
Lull Mattress Performance
The Lull’s thick foam layers tend to trap motion in place. This superior motion isolation keeps your movement from traveling across the bed and disturbing another sleeper.
As is common with foam mattresses, the Lull does not offer reinforced edge support. It is common to experience sinkage around the perimeter of the bed where you typically sit.
Memory foam mattresses are notorious for sleeping hot. Due to its conforming properties, memory foam tends to trap and retain heat against a sleeper’s body. The Lull attempts to counteract this with a gel-infused top comfort layer. But if you tend to sleep hot, this mattress might not be right for you.
Most foam mattresses produce a temporary “off-gassing” odor when first unsealed from their packaging. Customers report that this is also the case with the Lull mattress, but that the smell dissipates within a day or two.
The main job of any mattress is to support your head, neck, and spine while you sleep. Memory foam is designed to respond to weight, heat, and pressure to provide customized support to individual sleepers. The Lull’s memory foam layers provide support and pressure relief.
The Lull’s three foam layers work together to conform to a sleeper’s body. The bed is relatively firm, it does not provides the “hug” feeling common in memory foam mattresses.
Foam mattresses tend to be quite durable. The Lull mattress hasn’t been available long enough to know exactly how it will hold up over time, but independent testing suggests that it will continue to perform well.
Memory foam conforms to a person’s body, oftentimes somewhat restricting movement. This can make sexual activity more cumbersome. This problem is somewhat tempered with the Lull, because it is more firm and has less “sinkage” than the average memory foam mattress.
What Type of Sleeper is Well Suited to a Lull Mattress?
With every mattress review, we remind you that choosing the right mattress is a very personal decision. It should be based on your own unique preferences, typical sleeping position, body weight and type, and any health conditions. Proper spinal support and comfort are important factors to consider. Always take advantage of a sleep trial to make sure that the mattress you choose is indeed right for you.
Keeping all that in mind, consider this subjective customer feedback:
Side Sleepers: Sleepers who tend to sleep on their sides give the Lull good marks across the board. Both lightweight sleepers (those who weigh less than 130 lbs) and average weight sleepers (those weighing between 130 and 230 lbs) say the Lull is “very good.” Heavyweight sleepers (those weighing above 230 lbs) rate the Lull as ‘good.”
Back Sleepers: Both lightweight and heavyweight back sleepers rate the Lull as “very good.” Average weight back sleepers say the Lull is “excellent.”
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers aren’t quite as effusive. Lightweight sleepers say the Lull is “good,” while average and heavyweight stomach sleepers say it is “fair.”
Customer Service: Lull has developed a short but solid track record for customer service. Our research shows that 7 out of 10 customers had a positive experience with the company, regardless of how they felt about the mattress.
Reputation: Lull hasn’t been around for long. But the company has received positive feedback for both its products service.

The Lull could be a good fit for someone wants the benefits and feel of memory foam, without excessive contour or sinkage. It offers solid motion isolation, as well as support and pressure relief.
