Lull Vs Tempur-Pedic- Which Should You Get?

We receive free products to review and participate in affiliate programs. See our disclosure page for more information.

Tempur-Pedic essentially created the memory foam category of mattresses and is responsible for its current popularity.  Lull is a new company with a memory foam mattress that sells online-only.  As Lull has gained in popularity, people are starting to wonder what the differences are between the mattress and the various models of Tempur-Pedic.  I’ll go over those differences in an attempt to help you make a more informed decision.

Key Similarities

  • Both have memory foam as the comfort layer, which gives the mattresses great pressure relief
  • Both isolate motion really well because of the inclusion of memory foam in the construction

Key Differences

  • Lull has just one mattress with one firmness level, while Tempur-Pedic has an entire line of mattress with models catered to many different firmness levels and different feels
  • Lull sells for less than any of the Tempur-Pedic models
  • Lull has more responsive foam than all of the Tempur-Pedic models
  • Tempur-Pedic is a more established company, having been around for many more years than Lull

Main Construction/Feel Difference

Tempur-Pedic does not disclose the specs of its mattresses, so it’s hard to make a direct comparison of the materials, but I’ll try to highlight some differences.  One difference is that the memory foam used in the lull is faster to respond than the memory foam used in the Tempur-Pedic models.  That means if people move around, the foam will go back to its original shape pretty quickly.  It makes it easier to move around and potentially is better for sex as well.  However, this is really just a personal preference thing and some people will like the slower-moving foam better.

The Lull uses gel-infused memory foam to address the issue of sleeping cool, and its memory foam has a more open celled structure.  In my experience, the mattress did sleep cool.  With Tempur-Pedic, to get similar features people would have to get a Breeze version, which costs an additional $1,000.

You Might Want To Pick Lull If:

  • You Want Faster-Responding Foam– The memory foam used in the Lull is definitely more responsive than almost all the Tempur-Pedic models.
  • You Want Cooling Features Without Paying Extra– The infusion of gel into the memory foam, fabric choice, and open celled structure of the foam are all great features for keeping a cool sleeping surface.  The Breeze models have these features, but consumers have to pay $1,000 extra for them
  • You Want More Value– People can probably get more value from Lull just based on the fact that they sell online-only and don’t have the costs/markups associated with Tempur-Pedic’s business model
  • You Want Middle-Of-The-Road Firmness– If you want something that’s not too soft nor too firm, the Lull is a good choice.  It should be good for people who aren’t overly heavy or lightweight.

You Might Want To Pick Tempur-Pedic If:

  • You Want Something Extra Soft Or Extra Firm– Lull has a good middle-of-the-road firmness level, but it only has one firmness option.  If you want something slightly more soft or firm, you will have good options with the Tempur-Pedic line of mattresses.
  • You Want To Try Out A Bunch Of Different Mattresses Before Selecting– With Tempur-Pedic, you can go into a store and try out an entire line of mattresses to find one you think you like best.  Lull has a great return policy and trial period, but you can’t try it out ahead of time.
  • You Want More Slow-Moving Memory Foam– The memory foam used in Tempur-Pedic mattresses is slower-moving than with Lull, so if that’s what you are looking for, then Tempur-Pedic is probably the way to go.

Price/Value

The two companies have very different business models.  Lull sells online-only, so it’s able to price its product much lower than any of the Tempur-Pedic models.  Therefore, you can probably get a little more value out of the Lull than you can with Tempur-Pedic.

Motion Isolation

Both mattresses are great options for couples because they both isolate motion really well.  I can’t say one is better than the other because they both really excel here.

Overall

Both are really good choices with just a few differences.  If you want slower-moving memory foam and have the budget for it, Tempur-Pedic may be the way to go.  If you want more responsive memory foam and are on more of a budget, then perhaps Lull is the best choice.
