Features of LUCID 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress
Comfortable for medium and large size
The top memory foam is infused with gel beads. Gel foam like a coin has two sides, advantages and disadvantages. It reduces heat retention on the bed but increases firmness to make people feel too firm or hard. LUCID 10-inch gel memory foam does let people sink in the bed, especially who weigh above average. They tend to feel it’s perfect and give both comfort and support. Lightweight people who have a slender figure tend to feel too firm on this bed. From owner reports, people weighing over 180lbs feel just right but ones less than 150lbs feel stiff. It’s not a mattress for all so make your choice.
As we always say to hot sleepers, go for the gel foam model. Regular memory foam is much easier to burn you as it tends to hold body heat back leading to temperature rise. Compared to regular foam, gel memory foam lets heat deliver to other layers instead of keeping under our body. However, it can’t fix the issue completely but just improve it. So it’s not much surprise to find some people still complain feeling hot on the bed. If you don’t feel hot on traditional bed, you won’t on this mattress too.
Price is playing a key role in its success. If you go to local stores, it’s unlikely to find a mattress under $500 and most cost more than $1000. Those looking good and you want to buy are $2000 at least and some even cost $7000. Today, mattresses can’t compare with ones about twenty years ago as for the quality. It’s very common for those old mattresses to stand 10 years but not that many mattresses can hold up for ten years. You should know there is a little chance that this LUCID mattress lasts 10 years. But it’s a cost effective choice. The low end mattress usually lasts for 5-6 years and you pay $50 a year for the bed, while you pay about $167 each year for a 12 year old $2000 mattress.
Decent mattress for guest bedroom
Although we think it’s a great bed for guest bedroom, there are many people using in their master bedroom. We still stick to it. It’s made in China and using low density memory foam. The mattress could be expected to last 8 years at most. It’s not meant to everyday use. In the guest bedroom, it only serves friends or guests for a few nights and the lifespan will be definitely longer.
Downside of LUCID 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress
Short product life
LUCID and Linenspa don’t have a high standard quality control. Complaints about durability and quality are very easy to find in reviews of all LUCID mattresses. Some owners also report that LUCID 10-inch gel mattress fails in one or two years. The brand needs to apply high quality standards to contract manufacturers or they will lose the only advantage.
