Complete Tulo Liv Mattress Review

Tulo is known for making affordable foam mattresses available direct from the manufacturer’s website and at Mattress Firm locations around the United States. The Tulo Comfort Series is a 10″ foam mattress that comes in three different firmness options.

The latest offering from the company is the Tulo Liv, a 9″ medium-firm foam mattress (read our review here.)

Despite being on the lower end of the pricing scale, the Comfort Series was designed to allow consumers to base their firmness choice based on their own personal body composition and sleep position preferences. 

What Type of Mattress is the Tulo Liv?

Every mattress that bares the Tulo name is categorized as a ‘memory foam’ or ‘combination foam’ mattress. 

The mattress incorporates high density foam and does offer sufficient weight distribution and support, however, it is made entirely out of different types of foams. 

The various foams used are not knowing for offering the greatest overall edge support and some people have reported noticeable sagging over time. 

How Firm is the Mattress? Will I Get a Good Nights Sleep?

The beauty of the Comfort Series is that it is available in three different firmness options; Medium Soft, Medium and, Firm. 

  • Medium Soft rates 4 out of 10 on the firmness scale
  • Medium rate 5.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale
  • Firm rates 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale

Regardless of the firmness option selected, each of the beds are constructed using four different layers of high quality memory foam and deliver an overall sleep experience on a comfortable mattress that contours the body and supports tired muscles and joints.

If you are having difficulty deciding which of the Comfort Series mattresses are the best for you, Tulo has developed a handy interactive tool to make sure you pick the best for your needs.

The tool works by assessing your sleeping position (do you sleep on your side, your stomach, your back), how large of a mattress you need and also any special sleeping criteria you might have (do you sleep warm, do you have lower back pain during the night, etc.) 

Based on the results, they will recommend the mattress that they feel will deliver the best sleep experience for you.

Typically, softer mattresses are recommended for anyone who sleeps on their side, medium mattresses are suggested for stomach sleepers and firmer mattresses do well for those who sleep on their back. 

What About Motion Transfer? Will I Wake My Partner if I Roll Over?

Every one of the Tulo Comfort Series mattresses that we tested did well in terms of motion and vibration absorption. 

Foam mattresses, by way of construction, seldom have issues with motion transfer.

One of the many benefits of using high density foam is that it allows for ‘spring’ but isolates motion to contour to the body. Meaning that both you and your partner should have no difficulty getting an uninterrupted sleep. 

How Are the Layers of the Tulo Liv?

Mattresses in the Tulo Comfort Series collection are constructed using four layers of high density memory foam. 

Each mattress comes with a knit blend mattress cover made of polyester and Tencel. The cover is designed to wick away moisture and keep the bed cool.

Taken directly from the Tulo website, the four layers are:

  • The first layer: 2″ ventilated memory foam, integrated with titanium particles for cooling. 
  • The second layer: 1.5″ responsive firm foam with an exclusive peak & valley design to promote airflow. 
  • The third layer: 1.5″ strut reinforced foam to minimize material fatigue and reduce surface compression. 
  • The fourth layer: 4″ soft density polyurethane foundation foam supports the layer above. 

Does the Mattress Sleep Hot?

The polyester and Tencel blend mattress cover is the first line of defense in keeping the mattress cool and preventing it from absorbing heat from the air or anyone sleeping on it. 

Additionally, the top two layers of ventilated memory foam regulate temperatures and allow for air to flow freely through the layers of the memory foam. 

The Tulo Comfort Series does its part in providing a cool and comfortable sleep experience but some reviewers have reported that the mattress sleeps a little hot.

What About Off-Gassing? Does the Mattress Smell?

Because the bed is constructed using so many different types of foams consumers are right to wonder about any sort of off-gassing or smells. 

Upon unboxing there is a slight smell, however, it is not overwhelming and should disappear in  a couple of days.

The mattress, regardless of firmness option, will require some time to expand to its full size.

 

How Long will the Mattress Last?

Like other foam mattresses available, Comfort Series mattresses have an expected lifespan of up-to 10 years. 

The company stands behind their product with a 120 day risk-free, sleep trial and a limited 10 year warranty.

Tulo Comfort Series Mattress Review – Our Verdict

The most impressive thing about the Tulo Comfort Series is the price tag. At just $750 for a queen sized mattress, at any of the firmness levels, it is possible to get a decent quality mattress without too much of an investment. 

We appreciate how easy it is to setup the bed – especially if you are lucky enough to live in one of the areas where Red Carpet Delivery is provided. 

Another plus is the availability of free shipping within the USA and the 120 day trial period.

Of the available Tulo mattresses, the Comfort Series are the most comfortable. However, the lack of edge support has resulted in noticeable sag over time. Heavier individuals might notice this sooner than others.
