Lucid 16 Inch Natural Latex + Memory Foam Mattress Review
Awesome matress, awesome price --very heavy
I've had it for about 10 months, and after having to move this bed to a new house-- my suggestion is to get a thinner one. This super hard to move due to the fact that it isn't rigid and is very heavy. I don't feel at least for us, that going to a 10" or 12" would be any less comfortable. If you were heavier than us then maybe you need the inches. That said, the bed did get softer over time and while my boyfriend still enjoys it, I could do with a bit more firmness. I would still say that it is cooler than most memory foam but I'm not sure I'd do it again for myself personally. Boyfriend doesn't mind it, but I sleep kinda hot and have woken up sweaty a few times. Oh, also not a bad thing but good to know, the outermost white mattress cover layer can unzip, but you should probably not wash it as it is attached to foam. I took it off partway with the intention to wash it and saw that. So keep it covered with a fitted sheet while moving it if you must.
So I've had this for a little over a month now and I'm very happy with it!
My boyfriend and I sleep on this. I'm 5'1 - 250lbs, he's 6'3 240 lbs. It works for both of us. We both usually sleep on our sides, but occasionally our backs and it works for both. It feels relatively cool compared to some of the other memory foam mattresses I've slept on--but it is still slightly hotter than my old spring mattress. I got some Tencel sheets to go with it (Tencel/bamboo sheets help stay cool) and we sleep with the ceiling fan on so it's works out to be perfectly comfortable.
You will need another person to help you get this thing set up-- even if you're really strong (this thing is heavy!), it's just big and awkward to move alone, and there are little nubs on the bottom of the mattress that make it hard to just scoot around. It unrolls upside down, so my suggestion would be to flip it over, move it where you want it, and -then- unwrap it. It expanded very quickly for us, within minutes it seemed. The smell took a few days to really go away, but we slept on it anyways because our old bed was falling apart, and it didn't seem to hurt anything (aside from our noses).
Edge support is great, I put my socks on at the foot of the bed and I haven't rolled out of it or anything. We put ours directly on the floor. With 16 inches it's high enough, and we can save money up for a platform base eventually. I don't think slats would do so great, this thing is super heavy. —JC
