The original BedInABox® is one of the original trend-setter brands to sell mattresses to customers in a box. Since starting, they have added mattresses in a variety of firmness options and pricepoints. With a focus on memory foam mattresses, their offerings have multiple layers of foam and range from 9'' to 13'' thick. Overall, customers like their mattresses at first, but there were some complaints about durability reported by some.
Lull offers one memory foam mattress-in-a-box that is making a splash in the customer review and mattress blogosphere. Some of the differentiators of the Lull mattress are its prioprietary blend of memory and poly foams, which work together to cradle the spine and relieve pressure point pain. Overall, customers have good things to say, but is it right for you specifically?
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Lull in this match up!

Customer reviews are a powerful resource for finding out if a product will match your needs. Overall, these mattresses are rated well by customers, but there are some that didn't feel as good with the mattresses. Look over the below details to discover if one of these mattresses will fit your body.
Support isn't the same as firmness. Great support is when your mattress aligns the spine and leads to a better night sleep. Sadly, these mattresses have some mixed reviews when it comes to support. Most are satisfied with the supportiveness of the mattress right after purchase, but some felt like they weren't supported as time went on.
For those that like to sit on the side of their bed, even edge support is essential. These mattresses do a good job at edge support initially, but some found it didn't last as well as they would have hoped.
Durability is always important to mattress shoppers, but due to the overwhelming amount of choices, it can be hard for shoppers to find the truth. That said, the data on the materials used, tests performed, and customer reviews can be a good guide to estimate longevity. These mattresses offer above average durability for the average sleeper. For those that are of heavier builds, these mattresses may be less durable.
Everyone wants to get to the bottom of which mattresses are best rated, but it isn't easy from just browsing online. These mattresses are highly regarded by customers according to current data on customer sentiment and reviews. Although you not have the same great feelings towards this brand after buying, having a good reputation from customers is a great beginning for reading on further!
Having a supportive mattress will help with back problems and keeping things comfortable over the long term. Most customers describe these mattresses as having good support, but some folks who are lighter or heavier in build may have complaints.
Edge support is an absolute must for folks looking for the best mattresses and for those that spend lots of time sitting on the edge of their bed. Most customers report that these mattresses do well on edge support, but some heavier folks may find there is a slight dip along the side.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Placing a bowling ball on a mattress at different points is a great way to measure even support. These mattresses do a great job at providing support for most customers, but there are a few folks that experience issues with support longer term.
Longevity is key to budget-conscious mattress shoppers. Yet, with businesses focused on competition and marketing, it isn't always clear. That said, based on the specifications, craftmanship and materials used, these mattresses will provide a good amount of durability and should last over 5 years for most. But, some folks who are heavier may find their mattress loses some durability.
I had great hopes for this bed; however, it is just too firm. Our former memory foam mattress lasted about 7 years, and my husband and I were beginning to have lower back pain because the bed had broken down and was too soft. Prior to that happening; however, we were very happy with the bed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer was no longer in business or we would have just purchased another.
After lots of research of reviews, etc., on the internet, I settled on the pacbed original 11." I was a little concerned about the only complaints being that the bed was too firm, but I thought we would try it and we could also buy a topper if it was too firm. First, the gel memory foam on the pacbed is different from our former bed, which conformed to your body. The gel memory foam simply depresses where you lay, more like a traditional spring form mattress, instead of enveloping your body. In addition, the three inches is not sufficient because you end up depressing through to the support foam, which is very hard. For reference, I am 5'7" and 145 lbs. Both my husband and I have had hip pain since purchasing this bed, and I can no longer sleep on my stomach. I have forced myself to sleep on my side with a pillow between my legs, which is the only way I can sleep comfortably and not wake up in pain.
We bought a 3" memory foam topper that was returnable (through another vendor) to get us through the 60 trial period, but it has made our bed ridiculously high (14") and while it does help relieve the pressure points, it just does not measure up to our old bed as far as comfort goes, and I still have issues with my arms falling asleep when I sleep on my stomach. Sigh. Unfortunately, this is going back when our trial is up in 30 days.
I also find it odd that I cannot figure out how to leave a review on their site. Perhaps they don't let you review until the full 60 days has past.
I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 for now. I suspect it will go down to a 2 unless it miraculously improves in comfort.
I researched the best I could online. SleepLikeTheDead.com appears to be, purports to be, a non-biased review organization. They rate this product higher than any other. And report 380+ customer reviews in part of their opinion.
"The ratings – based on 380+ consumer reviews gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology – show how Bed In A Box mattresses compare to the average mattress."
Problem is, I can't find any customer reviews on the BedInaBox website. I can't find anywhere to leave a review on their website. I can't find any ling on the SleepLikeTheDead website to provide a review. So, I'll leave it here, with the other 5.
I purchased a twin for my son and a king fro myself. My son's mattress has no "off-gassing" smell. My mattress smells like it became moldy in the air vacuumed packaging, and is going on 5 days of a smell I can't sleep with. The smell has permeated my down comforter and I suspect I'm going to need to replace it.
My son says his mattress is fine and has no issues with comfort.
I have issues with my L5/S1. My previous mattress caused me discomfort. This mattress makes my back pain unbearable. I can't sleep through he night and have pain all day long. I am resorting to sleeping on the couch while I wait for the 60 day trial period to end.
The bed does not give in enough. My hips are raised while my L5 is forced down. It's basic physics. Even if you don't have L5 issues, this mattress will certainly encourage it. If I slept on my side, I'm sure it would not be an issue. I don't sleep on my side.
Not impressed. Not impressed with SleepLikeTheDead or BedInABox.
I can only hope that they don't expect me to ship this thing back to get the money back guarantee. I don't have the equipment to make it compact and vacuum packed that they do when they shipped it to me.
I LOVE this bed!!!!!! While shopping for a new mattress I wanted to try a non traditional online mattress retailor. I first tried CASPER beds and that bed was so uncomfortable I could only sllep on it for 4 nights before my wife made we change back to our spring mattress. This was our next bed and after a week we decided we would keep it for good. The customer service during ordering was great . I really liked the try in home no risk policy but dont worry you wont need to use it cause this bed is amazing. It is just as comfortable as the Temper-pedic beds I tried in stores. Give this bed a try whats the worst that could happen.
Arrived in a very manageably sized package, I didn't have any off gassing issues, and the bed is every bit as comfortable as I'd hoped so far.
Excellent..just what me and my wife needed
Not as comfortable as I imagined
We recently ordered the PacBed Original and a foundation, King, online. Ordering was straightforward and easy. Communication from Bed-In-A-Box was timely and done via email. Our mattress and foundation arrived within four business days. Set up for the foundation took about 20 minutes - directions were easy to follow and assembly was without hitch. Unboxing / unwrapping of the mattress was quick and again, easy, taking about 4 minutes. This king size mattress is a bit heavy and unweidly to move into place on the foundation but with two people it was done within 30 seconds. Total time to set up: 30 minutes! Note: There was no smell to the mattress.
The mattress feel is firm. You can barely feel another move, toss or turn, or get in or out of the bed. It did take a few days to adjust to the feel of the mattress and getting a quilted mattress cover helped in adding a bit of 'cushion'. The first few days my husband and I woke up stiff...though we believe that was due to staying in one position rather than tossing and turning or lack of support.
After two weeks sleeping on the mattress...we love it! It's comfortable. Neither of us toss or turn anymore. It provides quality support. When we need to replace our other mattresses, this will be the one we buy!
Bought this mattress to replace a pillow top mattress that was showing some wear and not very comfortable any more. Very pleased so far. Our son recommended bed in a box after he bought one for himself 2 years ago.
We recently purchased a 'Bed in the Box', everyone thought I was crazy, but the online research and reviews were great so we decided to give it a try - we are very happy with the mattress, the ordering process and delivery.
Great price. Quick delivery. Super comfortable ! My husband is up by 6:30 AM having never slept better!! Customer for like!
My husband and I love this bed. It is extremely comfortable and supportive, without being too soft. The warranty plus the 120-day money back guarantee are unheard of and excellent. I am so excited to have this bed for a long, long time!
Our 8 year old Tempurpedic no longer did the trick. Sore backs for both of us every morning. Our new mattress is great, easy to move and unpack, no off-gassing, and so comfortable.
Been sleeping on the mattress for several weeks now. I would call it firm. It's very comfortable for me as a stomach/back sleeper. I thought it might be too firm for my wife as she is a side sleeper, but she is happy too.
I'm not sure what I was expecting at first, my initial shock was that it was literally a bed in a box. From visiting with others about a foam mattress, we were told to 'break' in the bed by walking/jumping on it. Now the bed has settled quite nicely. We are sleeping much more comfortably and soundly. I truly wake up with few to zero aches. Overall, BedInABox was extremely easy to purchase from, quick to ship and so far a great product! I only hope it continues to get better through the years!
Very firm, very comfortable bed! No backaches! In fact, I like it better than our tempurpedic!
Comfortable, but a little firmer than I expected.
Have only slept on it 3 night due to being out of town. Seems good so far. It is an adjustment from sleeping on a inner spring mattress for 50 years. The mattress was a little firmer than I expected. I want to give it a good month before I can truly give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
I bought this to replace my old mattress. It is a little firmer than I expected but overall nice mattress. I do sleep better.
initially my pacbed felt far firmer than my tranquility I had before, and its supposed to be the softer bed. after 1 week I think I like the bed but I really need more time to know for sure.
We've only had our mattress for 8 days, so it's a little difficult for me to give it a full 5 stars. I bought this mattress over my husband's mild objections, really worried it wouldn't work out. So far, it has. I'm sleeping much more comfortably than I have in a year. I'm a side sleeper and can only sleep on left side due to medical issues. I've developed arthritis in left hip. Happily, I'm not waking up in the night because of pain in my hip and feel rested and ache free in the morning. My husband is feeling more rested, too. The 2 things I'm not so happy about are the mattress seems concave. I actually feel like I could roll over to the middle when my husband gets in bed. I don't like that; what will happen in the future? Also, I can feel him move around. I was counting on this being motion free. I should have gotten a king and or a higher quality mattress. I've already recommended Bed in a Box to a friend.
My wife and I are sleeping much better since we got this bed. I haven't had any of the neck pains I used to have with our old bed. Setup was pretty easy and was accomplished without problem.
The bed came and was easy to assemble. We also bought the box spring which was fairly simple to assemble. The bed is firmer than I am used to
I explained that I was waking up every morning with back pain. For giving a company $1500, I would expect some kind of customer support. Instead I was told my mattress was past it's "try period" therefore there was nothing they could do. Many mattress companies offer a comfort guarantee. Not these guys. Regret my purchase 100%.
I was hesitant to purchase Lull, due to the fact of not having access to trying it before buying. However, purchasing Lull was easily the best decision. I find myself sleeping much better each night. The bed is so comfortable! It took me about a week to get used to it. I highly recommend this mattress to you!View More Reviews
We have had our mattress for 2 weeks and me and my wife LOVE IT!!!!!
My wife is sensitive to outgassing from new foam products. A $1600 Serta mattress we purchased a year ago required multiple days of airing before it was "sleepable". However, this mattress (Twin XL) was out of the plastic cover and on the bed and sleepable the same night. The only think is that for a side sleeper, I would have preferred a bit more firmness. However, the mattress is very comfortable and the value is GREAT
Comfortable, easy to assemble and great customer service!
A much better sleeping experience and much better shopping experience too. One of the things I dread about mattress shopping in stores is that the choices are overwhelming and the added high pressure doesn’t help. We love our Lull. We haven’t been able to sleep a full night in the same bed for years. Now we prefer our full versus our queen which is an old mattress. Soon to be replaced I might add. With a Lull!
I have had my bed seen November it's great so far thank you
Best sleeping experience ever.
It took several weeks to see if we would Get all the benefits of the mattress. It Lives up to the high rating for sure Very happy
We had a rather crazy experience getting our bed, due to the shipping company. Lull was on top of it, and handled the situation well. They stepped in, and it was taken care of immediately. They checked it right after ordering as well. We couldn't be more pleased with the purchase.
I can see why they stand behind this mattress is a great product very comfortable lives up to its reputation
I absolutely love my lull!
My wife and I have been sleeping on our new Lull mattress for two weeks now and just love it!! We both used to have back pains and didn't sleep well on our old spring mattress. Back pains are gone and we both sleep through the night! Thanks Lull!!
I went into this with great skepticism. I admit it. I have always slept on a very firm mattress and I couldn’t imagine a mattress that shipped in a box would be firm enough. But after reading the reviews I figured I’d give it a try (the 100 night guarantee had a lot to do with that decision). And I’m so glad I took the leap. Crazy fast shipping! I gave it one night for it to plump up all the way and blissful sleep ever since. I’m honestly sleeping better than ever. I have plenty of support but the mattress seems to conform to every area of my body. Lull lives up to every promise.
I have been sleeping on this mattress for about a month now, nothing but raves from me. I would recommend a Lull Mattress to anyone considering buying a mattress and encourage anyone who has not given a thought to buying a new mattress to change gears. As a bonus, I paid for this mattress one day and delivered the next, can't beat that for service. Let's see: didn't have to go to the store, didn't have to deal with sales people, didn't have to find a way to get it home or pay a delivery fee, the utility of this mattress is incredible, hmmm, musta made a good choice. Best.
Checking in after a couple of months and still so thankful I decided on 'My Lull'. From the first night till now, I continue to fall asleep quickly and never have an uncomfortable position . I am a very happy side sleeper. I never felt the 'adjustment period' from a spring bed to this type of product. What I felt was comfort and simple and grateful full night's sleep. As others have said, my own sciatica disappeared. Proof to me about the alignment of your body makes a huge difference. I noticed it NOT being there after about the 2nd night. That's how quickly Lull showed me how much I needed this bed. I had sciatica for a few months, no idea why or how it started, but no longer a part of me. I also never had the odor from the mattress or packaging either, that some others had and also said left after a few days. I lucked out all around! If you feel you are all wrecked and also have an old spring bed, it's so worth buying this bed. Also the financing plan to make it easier for you if needed as it was for me.
mattress is really comfortable, and have nothing negative to say right now! getting a good nights sleep virtually every single night! love it!
Life’s good wife say s back has nt hurt since we started using lull
I broke my back a month ago and am in a lot of pain. Sleep has been very difficult. Got my new Lull Mattress and was so pleased. First night of comfort and peaceful sleep. The mattress sleeps cool and is just the right degree of firm/softness. The service and delivery was so prompt. Thank you ...THANK YOU ! !
I'll be honest that it took a few weeks to get used to... it's firm... but within that time period back pain went away, sleep got better, etc. - I didn't have to "get comfortable" after using the bathroom in the middle of the night, almost any position was fine. Worth it!
Love my mattress. Best sleep I’ve had in years. Firm, but not too firm. So glad I decided to go with a Lull mattress.
Everything was excellent. It arrived a lot sooner than expected. It was easy to set-up easy and unwrap. So far I love it.
I've only slept on it a couple of times because it's at my new house right now but every time I've slept on it, it's been amazing. I don't have anymore back or neck problems. It's very comfortable, I no longer experience tossing and turning. It's great.
Great, comfortable sleep, and awesome bed.
It is heavenly.
We have had great experiences with it so far. Definitely an upgrade from our old mattress, we love it.
Very convenient, process of getting into the house and on the bed was very simple and easy. Astounded by how easy it was to finance.
Really simple, fast, and easy. And so far we love it.
Amazing mattress. I am really happy with it!
It's fantastic! I purchased it for my mom, so she loves it.
Good experience it was exactly what i expected.
I can sleep on anything, my boyfriend is picky but he absolutely he loves it. I do sleep a little hot on it but other than that it's great.
Very very comfortable. My husband has had problems with his back but now he is getting six hours of sleep at night.
I purchased this for my son, he is very happy and has not complained. The minute we opened it he's loved it. He usually has back and neck pain but he's had no pain from this mattress.
I think the bed is working for us. My wife has a few issues with her back so we are still monitoring my wife's back pain and seeing if this bed is working. I think the mattress is helping us with better sleep.
It's great! Really comfortable. I am sleeping pretty well on it.
Website was good. It's for my daughter. She likes it a lot.
I really enjoy it, it's a great mattress. It's better than anything else I've tried. I love that it's the right amount of firmness. I love that it came in a box and was easy to set up.
It's getting better. In the beginning I needed to adjust, I was having some back pain, but still working it out.
