I bought this mattress to change the very bad Simmons Beautyrest innerspring mattress which was described as helpful for back but had left two plunges on spots where I and my wife slept only after 8 years of use. Our sleep had gone worse with terrible mornings full of back aches. Also the mattress was not provided with separate coils so we both disturbed each other with every movement.
I purchased the King Lucid on Saturday 22nd December and it arrived on Monday 24thDecember. The delivery was left on our door but the box wasn’t looking very neat. However, the mattress was safely packed professionally inside double wraps. We unpacked the mattress on the same day and left it for 24 hours.
It expanded to its intended 16 inches within few hours, contrary to the 48 hour period proposed on the pack. The mattress had an insignificant smell which soon went away. The mattress was fully functional and had no issues to stop us from a comfortable sleep.
We love this mattress. It is firm but comfortable, soft and extra ordinarily supportive. I weight 250 lbs and my height is about 6’1”. I have had back surgery which made it very hard for me to lie on my back specially on the old mattress. Now this mattress is so comfortable and supportive to my back, my problem is much resolved.
Also, this mattress provides us the much needed separate coils. Now we do not get disturbed by each other’s movements. Our mattress pad was made of poly-cotton mix but we soon felt that it becomes hot and does not allow the top layer of mattress to regulate the body heat. I would like to know which mattress pad is used by the customers of this mattress. Currently, we are simply using fitted sheets on the mattress. May be a mattress pad is not required at all?
We were concerned about the purchase of LUICD because we had never tried it before but now we are so glad that we made the right decision. We had checked a memory foam mattress years ago in a store but it was so plunging and soft that my body sank into it and it took some effort to pull myself out of the indentation. LUCID, however, is completely different. As you take a side, the small hole would disappear within moments. There is no sleeping-in-a-sinking-mattress feel to LUCID.
