Finding the right mattress for you can be a daunting task, especially with so many new brands popping up on the market nowadays. There are lots of factors to consider, like any back or neck pain you may have, what position you sleep in, and whether you’re sharing your bed with a partner or not.
Luckily, bedding companies like Lull offer affordable, comfortable mattresses that will cut your search time in half! We’re here to help you break down everything you need to know about Lull’s two offerings: the Original Lull Mattress and the Luxe Hybrid Mattress.
Before we dive in, let’s briefly cover the basics of shopping for a new Lull mattress!
What are the Lull mattress models?
Right now, Lull has two mattresses available: memory foam and a hybrid. But what’s the difference?
A memory foam mattress, like the Lull Original Mattress, is designed to mold itself to your body. This ensures that your entire body is supported since your weight is evenly distributed across the surface of the mattress. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people with allergies and/or back pain, and are a great option for couples. They’re also a great option for people who sleep on their sides or backs. However, memory foam mattresses tend to be much softer than traditional spring mattresses, which may not provide the support you need if you prefer a firm mattress.
A hybrid mattress, like the Luxe Hybrid Mattress, offers the best of both worlds by combining memory foam with coils or springs to create a balance of firmness and softness in your mattress. This means you’ll get the traditional bounce of a spring mattress with the cushiony support of memory foam! If you tend to sleep on your back or stomach, a hybrid mattress may be the right choice for you. But because hybrid mattresses contain more components than an all-foam (AKA memory foam) mattress, they do tend to be more expensive, so keep that in mind.
Now, let’s take a deeper look at what each Lull mattress has to offer.
Review of The Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress
Now that we’ve covered the Original Lull Mattress, let’s move on to the Luxe Hybrid. Unlike the Original, the Luxe mattress is made up of both memory foam and supportive coils.
Lull’s Luxe Hybrid mattress is made up of six layers, all of which work together to give you a great night’s sleep. The first layer of the Luxe Hybrid is made of open-cell, breathable memory foam. The second, a cooling foam layer, helps to capture body heat and distribute it evenly. The middle layer of the Luxe is made of a high-resilience transitional foam, which keeps your spine aligned while you sleep. The fourth layer is where the Luxe transforms into a hybrid mattress, with a layer of pocket coils designed to evenly distribute weight with minimal motion transfer, meaning you won’t be disturbed if your partner or pet moves around in their sleep. In the fifth layer, you’ll find a barrier of extra firm foam surrounding the coil system, providing stable edge support. The sixth and final layer of the Luxe Hybrid is a five-layer rayon blend cover that comes with reinforced handles to make moving the mattress easy.
The Luxe Hybrid is a medium-firm mattress.
The Luxe Hybrid is thicker than the Original at 13”.
This is a hybrid mattress, which means it’s made up of both memory foam and coils.

Review of the The Lull Mattress Original
As we mentioned, the Original Lull Mattress is a traditional memory foam mattress. Below, we’ll break down the mattress’ features.
The Original Lull Mattress is made up of three layers of foam. The top layer is 1.5” of gel-infused memory foam designed to keep your body cool by absorbing and redistributing body heat while you sleep, all while supporting pressure points in your body. The middle layer, known as the transition layer, is 1.5” of a foam blend that offers support. The bottom foundational layer is 7” of durable polyurethane foam, which offers additional support and helps to prevent sagging.
While you may assume a memory foam mattress would be too soft, the Original Lull Mattress is described as being firm. However, reviewers have noted that sleepers used to a soft, sinking memory foam may need time to adjust to the Original Lull’s firmness.
All together, the Original Lull Mattress is 10” thick.
The Original Lull Mattress is made up of three layers of memory foam, with no added springs.
The Original Lull Mattress does not have reinforced edges; as such, some reviewers on Amazon have reported that the edges of the mattress do sink or sag.
Since memory foam mattresses tend to run hot, the Original Lull Mattress is outfitted with a hand-crafted top cover, designed to let cool air pass through easily. The cover is made of rayon and polyester and is easily concealed underneath bedsheets.
Sizes and Cost
The Original Lull is available in six sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. The price ranges between $799 and $1,499 on Amazon, but they are currently on sale on the Lull website for $499 to $1,099.
Both the Original and Luxe mattresses share a number of features that make either a worthwhile addition to your bedroom.
- They’re both CertiPUR-US®-Certified. This means the materials used are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and meet the highest standards for safety, emissions, and durability. Lull is also a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, which analyzes their products to ensure carbon emissions, pollutants, and un-recyclable content is minimized.
- They have a cooling layer. Both the Original Lull Mattress and the Luxe Hybrid are outfitted with a gel-infused layer designed to keep you cool while you sleep.
- They’re great for back pain! As we said earlier, both memory foam and hybrid mattresses can help out people with back pain and general discomfort. The three foam layers of the Original Lull Mattress are designed to support pressure points while keeping side and back sleepers supported. The Luxe Hybrid’s six layers offer the same support and then some, with coils that evenly distribute your weight no matter what position you’re sleeping in.
No! Lull mattresses are not designed to be flipped. However, Lull does recommend rotating the mattress every three to six months if you sleep on one side of the mattress, or you and your partner weigh significantly different from one another.
That depends on which Lull mattress you’re interested in! The Original Lull Mattress is better suited to side and back sleepers since it is a firm all-foam mattress. If you sleep primarily on your stomach or back, you should try out the Luxe Hybrid Mattress.
According to the manufacturer, “All foams used in Lull mattresses are CertiPUR-US Certified, which means that they meet rigorous standards for minimizing off-gassing. Our mattresses are made without harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, ozone depleters, heavy metals, and certain flame retardants that may cause cancer and genetic defects. All foams meet the standard of fewer than 0.5 parts per million VOC (volatile organic compounds).”
Since Lull mattresses are shipped to you in a smaller box, they need some time to decompress before using. You can sleep on it after it’s expanded for two to five hours, but it may not reach its full size for 24 to 48 hours.
The Original Lull Mattress is currently being manufactured in the United States and Taiwan. The Luxe Hybrid Mattress is currently being manufactured in Spain.
