The capacity of a mattress to prevent movement on one side of the bed from transferring to the other is known as motion isolation. If you sleep with a spouse that tosses and turns, this is very vital.
Due to the usage of memory foam, both the Plush and the Medium choices absorb vibrations efficiently. Memory foam has excellent motion-isolating capabilities.
When shopping for a mattress, keep in mind that pressure relief is crucial since it allows your spine to achieve its most natural alignment. It can also assist ease aches and pains caused by wider areas of the body exerting more strain on the mattress.
Most people will benefit from a mattress that cradles their bodies without allowing them to sink too deeply.
Due to the extraordinary contouring characteristics of its three-layer comfort systems, both the Plush and Medium versions of the Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress provide excellent pressure relief. The memory foam, for instance, adapts to the contour of the sleeper in a supportive manner, reducing pressure and encouraging proper posture.
If you sleep warm naturally, temperature control is an important factor to consider when shopping for a mattress. This refers to the mattress’s ability to dissipate heat and allow airflow to keep the sleeping surface cool.
The Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress’s temperature management is somewhat below average in both the Plush and Medium selections. This is because memory foam’s density and intimate hug efficiently trap heat against the sleeper’s body, restricting air circulation and retaining heat.
The Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress, on the other hand, offers a couple of characteristics that help to keep heat out. Polyfoam, which is more breathable than typical memory foam, makes up the top layer of the comfort system. This should allow some of the heat from the surface to escape. The Tencel cover also allows air to circulate and wicks moisture away from the sleeper, keeping them cool and dry.
The amount of resistance provided by the mattress along its perimeter is known as edge support. Sturdy sides help to avoid sagging while also reducing the risk of rolling off owing to extreme compression. This is particularly crucial for those who like to sit or sleep on the edge of the bed, as well as heavier people and those who share a bed with a spouse.
Due to its soft feel and thicker comfort system, the Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Plush features slightly below-average edge support. All-foam types are prone to this since they lack dedicated edge bracing and easily compress under the weight of the sleeper.
Because of its firmer feel and thinner comfort system, the Medium option provides slightly better edge support, making it a better choice for individuals who plan to use the mattress’s perimeter frequently.
Ease of Movement
The sleeper’s ability to readjust and reposition on the bed is referred to as ease of movement. The Medium Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress embraces the body without sinking too deeply, allowing the sleeper to reposition with ease. Because of the softer, thicker comfort system, the Plush does not perform as well as the others, providing below-average ease of movement.
When you unpack a new mattress, the production of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is referred to as off-gassing. It’s a regular occurrence in synthetic foam mattresses, especially when they’re sent compressed. While off-gassing is annoying, it is rarely harmful.
Due to the combination of memory foam and polyfoam, the Lucid 12-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress may have a slightly greater initial odour than other models. Most odours should go away in a few days, so owners who don’t want to sleep on their mattress can let it air out in another room until they’re ready to sleep on it.
