Who Should Choose the Leesa Mattress?

  • Budget shoppers: The Leesa offers high-quality materials, an aesthetically pleasing construction, and excellent comfort at a relatively affordable price—even though it costs a bit more than the Lull.
  • People who like a neutral foam feel: The memory foam is the second layer in the Leesa, and the LSA200 top comfort foam has a soft foam feel. It isn’t vicious like memory foam, but it’s still soft and comfortable.

Who Should Choose the Lull Mattress?

  • People on a very tight budget: Though both mattresses are considered affordable, the Lull costs less than the Leesa after discounts are applied.
  • Back Sleepers: The Lull’s medium-firm feel is ideally suited for back sleepers who need a blend of support and cushion.

Leesa vs. Lull: Top Similarities 

  • Firmness: Both are about a medium firmness on the firmness scale, so they’re not particularly soft or firm—this makes them a good fit for just about anyone under 230 lbs, regardless of whether they’re a side sleeper, stomach sleeper, back sleeper, or combination sleeper who switches positions.
  • Good for couples: Both mattresses offer great motion isolation and average edge support compared to other all-foam beds, which could be a good mattress for couples. 
  • Social impact programs: Leesa’s brand is built around social good and community impact—Leesa is a Certified B Corporation and donates one mattress to those in need for every ten sold.

Leesa vs. Lull: Top Differences 

  • Construction: The Lull transitions up to a memory foam, while the Leesa transitions up to a neutral foam (LSA200) with memory foam in between.
  • Overall Feel: The top layer of the Lull is memory foam, giving it a little bit more of a memory foam feel that wraps around your body. The Leesa, which has latex-like polyfoam on top, offers a neutral foam feel with a bit of bounce.
  • Price: Despite the fact that both are affordable and popular brands, Lull offers steeper discounts more often. A Queen size Lull after discounts can dip to around $799, while a Queen size Leesa after discounts is roughly $950.
  • Cover: The Leesa’s gray twill cover has a higher-quality look and is tighter on the mattress, so it doesn’t bunch up. The Lull cover is less taut around the mattress and may tend to bunch underneath your sheets.

Leesa vs. Lull: Firmness & Feel Differences

In this section, you’ll learn more about the different firmness and feel between the Leesa and Lull mattresses.

What’s the Firmness Of the Leesa & Lull Mattresses? 

The Leesa is considered a true medium-soft mattress, it is a good middle ground—not too soft and not too firm. The Leesa’s firmness and all-foam construction are best for those under 230 lbs. Meanwhile, Lull is a medium-firm mattress that leans slightly towards firmness. Its foam does a great job contouring to the body so the Lull mattress relieves pressure and keeps the spine aligned while still being durable.

What Do the Leesa & Lull Mattresses Feel Like?

The Leesa mattress has a balanced feel that’s a cross between the conforming feel of memory foam and the bouncy feel of latex—its top layer has a lot of bounce and responds quickly to your movements. The Leesa is soft to the touch at first but you won’t sink too much. In contrast, the memory foam of the Lull mattress hugs your body that will leave you feeling supported and lightly contoured, making it a great option for back sleepers. 

What’s It Like to Sleep On the Leesa & Lull Mattresses?

The Leesa will be enjoyed by most lightweight and average-weight sleeper side sleepers, thanks to three layers of premium memory foam that is designed to relieve pressure and contour to your curves. Similarly, the Lull is an all-foam mattress that has minimal motion transfer so it is ideal for couples—with the Lull mattress, your sleep won’t be interrupted by your partner tossing and turning at night.

Lightweight (< 130 lbs): 544
Average-weight (130–230 lbs):533
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs): 212

Lull Performance By Body Type & Sleeping Position:

Average-weight (130–230 lbs):534
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs): 324

1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent

Average-Weight Sleepers (130–230 lbs)

With a medium firmness level, average-weight back sleepers will find the Leesa mattress to excel at supporting and maintaining spine alignment. Similarly, average-weight stomach sleepers will receive enough support to sleep comfortably. Average-weight back sleepers and side sleepers will also feel wonderful on the Lull mattress as it provides superior support and contouring.

Heavyweight Sleepers (> 230 lbs)

The Leesa and the Lull are not suitable beds for heavyweight stomach sleepers, back sleepers, and side sleepers. Heavyweight folks may feel discomfort and will not get the support they need from either mattresses. 

Lightweight Sleepers (< 130 lbs)

Lightweight back sleepers will comfortably sleep and receive proper support on the spine and neck on the Leesa mattress. The Lull mattress will also work great for lightweight combination sleepers thanks to its medium-firm mattress that provides just the right amount of pressure relief.

Leesa vs. Lull Mattress Performance Ratings & Differences

The Leesa 3.2/5 

The Leesa mattress adapts to all sleep positions and most body types. With its cooling foam and additional layers that both hug and support you, it’s no wonder customers love sleeping on their Leesa.

The Lull 4.6/5 

Lull offers a well-rounded mattress with a thoughtful design that addresses the typical issues with traditional mattresses. Expect temperature regulation, advanced support, good motion isolation and lasting durability.


The Leesa mattress sleeps a little cooler—the LSA200 foam in its comfort layer isn’t as prone to body heat absorption as the memory foam used in the Lull’s comfort portion. 

Motion Transfer

Both the Leesa and Lull beds have low motion transfer—you shouldn’t feel your partner moving around or getting up during the night. The LSA200 material in the Leesa is slightly responsive, so if you’re ultra-sensitive, you may feel a little motion on it. The Lull, on the other hand, should be ultra-quiet and still. 

Edge Support 

The Leesa and the Lull have decent edge support. This is common for all-foam beds because they don’t have coils, springs, or high-density foam encasements to prevent the perimeter from sinking under pressure.

Pressure Relief 

The Leesa and the Lull balance pressure relief and support nicely without overdoing it in either direction. Both mattresses cushion the body and distribute body weight evenly. The Lull is just barely softer than the Leesa, and the top layer of memory foam will give you just a hint of the “sinking in” sensation that some sleepers find comfortable. 

Pain Relief 

The contouring layer of memory foam in Leesa should help prevent pain in key pressure points like hips and low back, particularly for lightweight to average-weight side sleepers. The Lull is designed to provide optimal spine alignment since it is made of high-quality gel memory foam.


The Leesa and the Lull should last about as long as most foam beds (seven to 10 years), but we anticipate that the Leesa will last longer because it’s a little firmer and contains a more responsive, latex-like foam in the top layer that isn’t as prone to indentations.

Our Final Take

Truth be told, the differences between these online mattresses are minor, so the right one for you comes down to the details. As a reminder, they have similar firmness levels, are priced similarly, suit a variety of sleeping positions, and can work for couples.

We recommend the Lull if you want the lowest price point of the two and like a hint of memory foam. We recommend the Leesa if you like a truly neutral foam feel and don’t mind paying a couple hundred extra dollars to get it.

Leesa & Lull FAQs

Is a Leesa mattress worth it?

The Leesa is an excellent medium-firm mattress at an affordable, mid-range price point. With an all foam construction that supports your body as you sleep, the Leesa works well for any sleeping position. Plus, trying the Leesa is risk-free with a 100-night sleep trial.

Do I need to flip my Lull Mattress?

Nope! You don’t have to worry about that with the Lull as it isn’t designed to be flipped. If you sleep with a partner and there is a significant difference in weight between the two of you, then Lull recommends rotating the mattress every few months.

How long do Leesa mattresses last?

We expect your Leesa mattress to last around seven years before showing signs of wear and tear. To get as many years of use as possible, it’s essential to care for your mattress—keeping it clean and setting it up on a supportive base or bed frame.
