The 12″ Plush Gel Memory Foam mattress from Lucid is soft, comfortable and affordable on almost any budget. It comes in a variety of sizes and features ventilated gel memory foam and a Tencel blend cover fabric to help you sleep cool. Could it be a good fit for you? Read on for my full review.
This mattress is made by Lucid. Lucid makes a wide range of mattresses, mattress toppers and even frames and an adjustable base. The 12″ gel memory foam mattress is one of eight gel memory foam mattresses available from Lucid.
Lucid’s 12” plush gel memory foam mattress is made up of three foam layers plus a soft cover. Here is a breakdown of the layers:
|Twin||38" x 75"|
|Twin XL||38" x 80"|
|Full||53" x 75"|
|Full XL||53" x 80"|
|Queen||60" x 80"|
|King||76" x 80"|
|CA King||72" x 84"|
This is a medium-plush mattress, so I did sink pretty deeply into the top gel memory foam layer. As you can see from the video, the foam is still fairly responsive but the overall feel will not be firm until you fully sink into the bed.
The memory foam layers at the top of this bed help with motion transfer. This could be a good match for couples who don’t want to disturb each other when they get out of bed.
With the plush feel and memory foam top layer, there is not a lot of edge support to this mattress. If you lay on your side you may feel yourself sinking closer to the edge.
Lucid accepts returns of any item within 30 days of purchase. You will need to contact Customer Service and have your order number available to set up the return.
The mattresses come with a 25-year warranty. This starts from the date of purchase and will cover any defects in materials or workmanship (please see the documentation that comes with the mattress for exceptions).
Keep in mind that the warranty only applies to the original purchaser of the mattress and does not cover wear and tear and stains – so we always recommend that you put a mattress protector over your mattress to keep it in good shape.
I think the price is really what makes this mattress stand out. It is affordable and you get some nice layers of memory foam that feel plush and soft. This is a great option for people who are on a tight budget who want a foam mattress and want it to come to their door hassle-free.
Based on my experience, I think the 12″ plush gel memory foam mattress from Lucid is cozy and comfortable for the average sized person. Lucid has added thoughtful details to help keep the foam layers breathable. The memory foam in the top layers of the bed really promotes a “sink into your bed” feel that many may enjoy.
The bed is very affordable but it may not be as durable as its more expensive memory foam counterparts. Based on my experience and other reviews I read, I would suggest it more for a guest bed and recommend that heavier sleepers or those with larger body types take a look at other options as well.
