Lucid Mattress Review


Lucid Mattress excels in mattresses with latex and memory foam, vacuumed, and shipped directly to the home address of the buyer.

Things I love about this mattress:

The materials used in the mattresses are safe, quality, and they are CertiPUR-US certified. That means that they do not use forbidden phthalates, mercury, lead, heavy metals, or flame retardants, that are dangerous for the health of people. The inner core is wrapped in comfortable memory foam, and additionally, their layer of charcoal bamboo helps to filtrate the bad smells during the time of usage.

Features of the memory foam:

This company has mattresses that use a memory foam invented to reduce pressure points everywhere on the body. This type of memory foam completely adjusts to the body and it provides a cozy, warm fit, and supports the back and spine. The technology – Open Cell enables the cells to compress at the same time in order to provide a more stable, uniform sleeping surface. This technology gives another advantage, when the cells are not compresses, they endure open to provide flow of air, which ensures a cooler sleep and fewer odors.

Latex Features:

These mattresses have increased airflow inside the mattress. This feature assists to prevent dust bugs and mildew out of your mattress and keep you cool while you sleep. The company provides shipping to your home address, then you can simply open up the package and allow the mattress to expand. The combination of latex and memory-foam offers a comfortable mattress, where the role of the latex is to give a small amount of bounce. All their mattresses have a trial period of 120 days and a 25-year warranty.

What I could do without:

The cost of these mattresses is high because you can find mattresses with the same or similar quality for a smaller price. The advantage of buying one of these more expensive mattresses is that you get greater support longer warranty and trial period. That is why I believe their price is fair because budget-friendly mattresses lack this kind of support. The disadvantage of having only a latex mattress is that it doesn’t provide enough comfort for those with joint or back discomforts. Mattresses with memory-foam are far more comfortable for those sleepers.

What’s inside:

Lucid’s latex mattresses respond instantly to your movement as you sleep. While you move, the support moves with you and it provides more movement because of the springy nature of the latex, compared with their memory-foam options. To increase the airflow as much as possible, the ventilation is located strategically throughout the mattress. The increased airflow allows the sleeper not to “sleep hot” and prevents producing mildew inside the mattress.

Lucid Construction

The materials used in the mattresses are safe, quality, and they are CertiPUR-US certified. That means that they do not use forbidden phthalates, mercury, lead, heavy metals, or flame retardants, that are dangerous for the health of people. 

This company has three main lines of mattresses, categorized based on the material they are using. The three primary lines are gel memory foam, hybrid, and latex. Each of the main categories can be chosen in a plush, firm, or basic version. We will be reviewing the basic versions of the mattresses. 

Lucid Gel Memory Foam

This particular mattress comes in several thicknesses, which gives the purchasers the right to choose the mattress with a suitable firmness for them. The ticker mattresses are usually softer than the mattresses with less thickness.

The mattress with 10-inch gel memory foam has two layers and a cover. The upper layer is made from gel-infused memory foam, a type of memory foam that is used to add additional airflow to the mattress and help the sleeper stay cool and dry through the night. The second layer of this mattress is made of 7.5 inches of supportive base foam that gives the sleeper the support it needs and supports the whole system of the bed. The cover is made with TENCEL (special lyocell blend), that is designed to allow the mattress to breathe easily and provides a comfortable transitioning of the body without feeling the mattress, which is a common issue on other popular mattresses on the market.

Another model of the basic version of the gel memory foam mattress is the 14-inch mattress. This mattress is thicker than the abovementioned and has an extra layer that is contributing to a softer feel for the mattress. The 14-inch mattress consists of these layers:  

The upper layer made of Cool-Gel Memory Foam has a function to provide a squishy and responsive sleeping surface. An additional purpose of this layer is to allow more airflow through the mattress – it creates more air channels, this helps to eliminate the undesired heat and moisture and will provide the owner cool, dry, and comfortable sleep.

The second layer is a combination of foam and bamboo charcoal. The charcoal is an advanced way to exclude the moisture and heat and filter out allergens and any other substance which can cause inflammation or other adverse reactions in the respiratory system.

The final layer is the same as the layer in the 10-inch model and is made of base support foam. This layer is important because is acting as the base of the bed, providing support, strength, comfort, shape, and relief from pressure points.

Lucid Hybrid

The Lucid Hybrid mattress is one of the best sellers, so we were especially enthusiastic about this review. The 10-inch model consists of 3 layers and a cover. The upper layer is made of organic latex foam. The advantage of this foam over the memory foam is that it is more responsive and has a springier feel. It is actively adapting to your body and it is supporting your body weight in a way that your back, neck, and hips are in a proper position throughout the whole night. The next layer includes gel-infused memory foam that helps to increase the airflow through the mattress and control the heat of the mattress. Additionally, it allows relief from pressure points and helps to ease the sleeper onto the bottom layer. The last layer includes foam-encased coils that give the bed a more conventional feel. Because each coil is wrapped in foam, you won’t have difficulties with motion transfer. Moreover, each coil is separately pocketed and encased and as a result of this, you get all the perks from using a traditional innerspring mattress, while excluding the disadvantages of that design.

It is important to note that there is also a 12″ latex hybrid mattress as well. If you buy this option you will get an additional layer of transition foam located between the gel-memory foam and the coils whose purpose is to make up the base of the bed. This layer intends to transition the sleeper from the softer layers on the top to the support of the foam-encased coils in the base of the mattress.

Lucid Latex

The mattresses made from latex, as the 10″ latex foam mattress, are more and more attractive every day. The latex is a material produced naturally, it provides the best characteristics from a memory foam mattress, and it gives a touch of elasticity which is typical for an innerspring mattress. This model of mattress has two layers and TENCEL cover included with all Lucid mattresses. The top layer is thick 3 inches and it is designed to respond to the movement of your body and its weight. With this feature, you will be more comfortable during the night. Additionally, you won’t feel like you sleep on a regular memory foam mattress because it has more bounce.

The last layer is 7″ thick and it is made of base foam. The purpose of this layer is to provide the basic support and structure to the mattress. It also acts as a primary layer for heavier sleepers and back sleepers.

Firmness, Feel, and Support

Lucid Mattress

The materials used in the mattresses are safe, quality, and they are CertiPUR-US certified. That means that they do not use forbidden phthalates, mercury, lead, heavy metals, or flame retardants, that are dangerous for the health of people. 

We will compare the firmness, feel, and the support of all mattresses offered by Lucid. The scale is from 1 to 10, where 10 is for the firmest mattress, and 1 for the softest. For instance, the biggest percentage of people in the USA look for a bed in the 6-7 range on this scale.

Lucid Gel Memory Foam

This mattress comes in a few firmness levels. We rank the 14-inch mattress as a 4.5, the standard 10-inch at a 6.5, and the 8-inch at a 7.5. That means that you have a fair range of softness when choosing a mattress. When we are talking about the feel of this mattress, I could say that it is alright, but nothing too special. In the same price range, you can get a mattress with a similar quality, but with some attractive features.

The support and the durability of the Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress depend on the firmness of the mattress and your body type. Heavier sleepers may not find enough firm and thick mattress from Lucid, but most sleepers should be able to find a mattress that will be suitable for their needs. The base support foam and the top layer which includes gel-infused memory foam should offer solid support for most sleepers.

Lucid Hybrid

We rate the firmness of the Lucid Hybrid at a 7 on our scale and most US sleepers rate the firmness of this mattress as perfect. The feel of the Lucid Hybrid is also okay, but nothing more than that. You can surely find a difference between a traditional innerspring mattress and an all foam mattress, so it is a good instance of how one hybrid mattress should look. If we compare the price of the Lucid Hybrid with other mattresses on the market, you surely can get a better feel and more support on other mattresses available on the market. What we liked on this mattress are the foam-encased coils, but we would like to see more coils in order to reduce pressure points and give the body a proper alignment.

Lucid Latex

We give the firmness of this mattress a rate of a 7 to 10 on our scale. A big portion of people will satisfy their desires with this mattress. The Lucid Latex mattress has a good feel, but I would like the mattress even better if it had a thicker layer of latex, or if they change up the support foam. I feel that customers don’t get enough bounce and latex feel for a latex mattress, but it is still a good option for those sleepers that like the advantages of a foam mattress without the possible difficulties that may come with them. The support that the Lucid Latex mattress provides is similar to the Lucid Gel Memory Foam mattress. Most sleepers will be satisfied, but heavier sleepers may need thicker and/or firmer mattress. Moreover, many people will feel the advantages you get with a latex mattress – good alignment for the body and cradling, so you will probably like this mattress, especially if you are a back sleeper.
