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?
Shifman is a handmade luxury mattress brand that has been around since the last 1800s and has a legacy of elegant design and is found in mattress retailers and at Bloomingdales. Their mattresses are very high priced, usually well over $5,000 to start. Though they are a status symbol for some and boast hand craftsmanship, there are those that find that they provide a bad value for the materials used.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Lull in this match up!

Bowling balls are useful to measure mattress firmness and support. These mattresses do well at providing even support throughout the mattress, which means they should do well comfortably responding to your body.
Discovering a mattress that is highly durable is essential to mattress shoppers. Yet, with businesses focused on competition and marketing, it isn't always clear. That said, based on the data from customers, materials, and craftsmanship, these mattresses are better than average when it comes to durability and will remain comfortable for over 5 years for most. But, some folks who are heavier may find their mattress loses some durability.
Sleeper reviews can be hard to understand from a high level -- especially with brands trying at all costs to protect their reputation. These mattresses, unfortunately, don't get the best reception from customers versus competitors. There are still customers that are happy with their mattresses, but others that are not as pleased. Make sure to read on to figure out if they will work for you.
These mattresses aren't ideal for everyone in terms of their support. Though most report initial comfort and support of the spine, others have had issues with spine alignment. If you are thinking about this mattress, make sure that it works for your body before buying.
Edge support is essential to those that like to lay close to the edge of the mattress. Others aren't as tied to it as a end-all for a good mattress. These mattresses may not be perfect when it comes to edge support so make sure to do added reading if it is an important item for you.
Mattresses with lasting support are phenomenal, but difficult to discover. Unfortunately, these mattresses are not well rated when it comes to durability. This means that some mattresses still may last years and years, while other mattresses may break down faster. If you are a bigger person, take some time reading more before buying.
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.
I bought my first Shifman Mattress in Bloomdales in 2001. It lasted me over ten years and was only tossed out due to the impossibility of getting such a heavy, well-made mattress down my third floor tenement stairs. I switched brands to my regret and have never gotten the good night's sleep I had with my Shifman. I can't even turn the mattress over because it is a one-sided mattress, something I was unaware of. When this one bites the dust, I'm returning to Shifman. It is a costly product and worth every cent.View More Reviews
I am extremely disappointed with the performance of our Shifman mattress but even more disappointed with their customer service. We purchased a king pillow top mattress 20 months ago. Within a few months, large depressions began to form on each side of the bed. I called the store and was told to turn it more frequently than the once per month recommended by the manufacturer. I followed instructions and the depressions worsened. It felt as if we were sleeping in a trough with hills on either side! I contacted Shifman and received no response. I then contacted the store where we purchased the bed. They sent out a representative as well as the Shifman rep. The Shifman rep told us this was normal and we should turn the bed 90 degrees and sleep on the short axis for a month or so until the middle of the bed compresses. He never touched the bed or took any measurements to judge the depth of the depressions. Bottom line.....they will do nothing to correct the situation. Shifman has a 10 year non-prorated warranty but, clearly, they don't stand by their product. My only hope, at this point, is that the furniture store has a higher ethical standard and will make this right. Lesson learned- price is not a predictor of quality.
$4,500 for a queen size mattress and foundation and a back ache every morning! When I called their customer service, the response was (1) it was my fault because the mattress had not gotten used to me yet (after five months?) and (2) what do you want us to do about it? Then, she hung up. A second call was even worse. Someone who said she was Eileen screamed when I protested about the first call and said 'I can put you on hold' before hanging up. The crudest, rudest people I have ever encountered in business. Needless to say, their creation is out of my house, and none will ever return.
A good nights sleep is of utmost importance! I've bought Shifman mattresses in the past and although they are bit pricey, they are top quality, comfortable and well worth the cost...you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Shifman Mattresses!!!!
We have been had 5 different beds in 16 years. This is the first bed that is so comfortable and supportive that we are getting the best sleep we ever had.
I'm awake bc a "fell in a slope" in my 4 month mattress. Stickley stands by there low quality product. Maybe Shifman Mattresses does too....
Wow Shifman Mattresses Your refusal to uphold the warranty of your product is quite disappointing. For a product that is so expensive and allegedly so high quality I would expect more from the manufacturer!
Had my first night's sleep on my new Shifman.. It was incredible! Thanks to the amazing artisans!
I was tired of low quality mattresses and wanted a mattress that could be turned. Research led me to Shifman. The problem is it is too heavy to turnover. Even when my son helps me it is too heavy. Whats the point of having a two sided mattress if its not realistic to turn it. Big grooves develope even when you rotate it. I gave 3 stars because its made relatively well but for the money spent I'll just get a regular new mattress every 5 years.
went thru 3 of their mattresses all of which bellied within months and had to be replaced. Now on a fourth non pillowtop which may be doing the same thing. had previously owned shifman for years with outstanding performance but they seem to have changed their design to allow the mattress to bend for mechanical beds. we’ll see haw the “tradition” model holds up.
