Tomorrow Sleep and Loom & Leaf are both online direct-to-consumer sellers of mattresses. Both offer multiple firmness options, and the main difference between them is that Tomorrow Sleep uses springs while Loom & Leaf is all foam. Here’s a breakdown of the similarities and differences in more detail, so you can find the best option for you.
- Both offer two firmness options that are all very breathable.
- All options incorporate memory foam or similar material somewhere in the construction
- All options have thick support layers.
- Both companies offer free shipping and generous sleep trials.
- Loom & Leaf is thicker at 12 inches compared to Tomorrow Sleep’s 10 inches.
- Loom & Leaf is all foam while Tomorrow Sleep incorporates coils in the support layer.
- Loom & Leaf runs more expensive. ($550-$1,150 for Tomorrow Sleep, $649-$1,499 for Loom & Leaf)
- Loom & Leaf offers a 120-night trial, Tomorrow Sleep a 100-night trial.
- Loom & Leaf incorporates eco-friendly materials.
Tomorrow Sleep Construction
- Tomorrow Sleep sells Medium Soft and Medium Firm versions of its mattress, and the versions have similar construction. Thicknesses of certain layers differ.
- The cover is made of polyester and nylon and doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress too much.
- 1 inch of memory foam with phase change material comprises the top layer.
- Below the top layer is a layer of gel foam, which provides comfort and bounce beneath the top layer. This layer is thicker in the Medium Soft option.
- The Medium Firm option has an additional layer of “dynamic response foam” under the gel foam layer. This foam feels similar to memory foam.
- The 6-inch support layer is similar in both firmness levels, and consists of individually pocketed coils. The Medium Firm option uses thicker coils.
- Edge support is reinforced with a foam side rail system.
- 1 inch of stabilizing foam forms a base for the mattress.
Loom & Leaf Construction
- Loom & Leaf’s two firmness options have similar construction. Here is a breakdown of the layers of Relaxed Firm and Firm.
- The cover is made of organic cotton.
- The 2-inch top layer is comprised of a combination of gel foams. A “gel-swirl” construction is used to evenly distribute temperature. Laminated on top of this gel is a special spinal panel that uses a cooling gel found in burn units of hospitals.
- Below the top layer is a 2.5-inch layer of memory foam that is supposedly more environmentally friendly than standard memory foam.
- Between this memory foam later and the base layer is a 2-inch transition layer that acts as a buffer between the comfort and support layers.
- 5.5 inches of dense support foam forms the base layer.
- Both mattresses are durable, but Tomorrow Sleep might have a slight edge because it uses coils.
- Both are constructed to ensure a neutral sleeping temperature.
- Both use memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Tomorrow Sleep has coils in the support system, while L&L has poly foam
- Tomorrow Sleep has a side rail support system to reinforce edge support.
- Loom & Leaf is thicker and more supportive.
- The softer version of Loom & Leaf is firmer than the firmer version of Tomorrow Sleep.
Watch the videos below to get a sense of how the mattresses respond to pressure. The Tomorrow Sleep video is for the Medium Firm version, so expect the soft version to be softer and have more give. The Loom & Leaf video is for the Relaxed Firm version, which is its softer version. Notice that Loom & Leaf has a little more bounce and is a bit firmer, while being a little slower moving than Tomorrow Sleep.
Motion Transfer Differences
The videos below show off the differences in motion isolation. Both prevent motion from transferring, but Tomorrow Sleep absorbs movement especially well.
Pick Tomorrow Sleep If:
You want something softer– Tomorrow Sleep’s options are softer overall than Loom & Leaf’s, making it a better choice if softness is what you’re looking for.
You sleep on your side– Tomorrow Sleep will conform to your contours, making it a great choice for side sleepers.
Pick Loom & Leaf if:
You like memory foam– Loom & Leaf is all foam and has thicker memory foam layers, so if you like the feel of memory foam you may prefer Loom & Leaf to Tomorrow Sleep.
You want something firmer– Loom & Leaf is overall firmer than Tomorrow Sleep.
Both brands have multiple firmness options, making them more versatile than many bed-in-a-box sellers; that said, there are still some notable differences between the pair of offerings from each. I hope this review has helped you think about which is right for you. If you have a question, please leave it in the comments.
