LUCID 16 Inch Plush Memory Foam and Latex Mattress: Is it a Worthwhile Buy?

lucid 16 inch bamboo memory foam mattress

Like terrible mattresses? Neither do we, that's why we reviewed this one!

We spend a huge amount of time sleeping. If our mattress doesn’t support our bodies adequately when we do, not only do we develop backaches and neck pains, but our body also doesn’t get the rest it so desperately needs.

If you’re in the market for new mattresses, you should consider upgrading to a bamboo mattress. Bamboo mattresses aren’t made from bamboo – the usual memory foam top layer is replaced with a bamboo layer or a cover.

Bamboo is hypoallergenic and breathable, which makes it a very comfortable bedding material.

The LUCID 16 Inch Plush Memory Foam and Latex Mattress is one of the top-rated, best-selling mattresses out there. It’s the most feature-rich mattress available in the LUCID lineup and should be near the top of your list if you’re looking for a great bamboo mattress. We’ll take a look at the top features of this mattress in our review:

What consideration do you need to keep in mind while buying a new mattress? The mattress should be comfortable – soft or firm, according to your personal preferences. It should fit your bed size.

Good quality workmanship and a solid supporting layer (foam/spring) are important if you want it to last you a while.

Finally, you should look for mattresses that comes with warranties or guarantees, so you can return/replace them in case of problems or manufacturing defects. Let’s measure the LUCID 16 Inch mattress against this yardstick:


The LUCID 16-inch mattress has four layers: a 10-inch support layer at the bottom, a 2-inch latex layer, a 3-inch memory foam layer and a 1-inch bamboo charcoal layer. The 10-inch layer provides excellent give while the latex layer provides pushback.

The 3-inch memory foam layer is made from breathable fabric, which keeps your body from getting too warm at night. Finally, the 1-inch layer is made from bamboo charcoal mixed with memory foam. The bamboo infusion makes it breathable, ultra-soft and comfortable.


This mattress provides an ultra-comfortable sleeping experience. The bamboo layer is moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic, suitable for people with allergies. It is also soft and will keep you cool all night long.

The latex and memory foam provides excellent support for your back and neck. They are also designed to conform to your body shape, without bending out of shape after extended use. You can buy a ‘Firm’ and a ‘Plush’ version of this mattress, depending on how soft or hard you want it.


This mattress is conveniently packed and easy to set up. It will hold up well after extended use (many customers have posted positive reviews after over a year of use).

The mattress is heavy, and you won’t be able to flip it over easily. However, it’s unlikely that you will need to flip it, as it doesn’t get out of shape easily. The mattress is CertiPUR certified, so it’s of high quality. The 25-year manufacturer warranty is icing on the cake


· Extremely comfortable

· Breathable and moisture-wicking top bamboo layer

· Available in all standard sizes

· No lasting body impressions

· Long-lasting, 25-year warranty

· Plush and firm options

The LUCID 16 Inch Mattress vs. Best-Selling Mattresses

How well does the LUCID mattress compare with other top-selling mattresses? It’s one of the most comfortable mattresses around, thanks to the layer-based design. It also includes a real bamboo-infused layer (other mattresses, like Brentwood Home Cypress Mattress, just use a thin bamboo cover).

 However, the LUCID mattress could empty your wallet – it is more than twice as expensive as some brands (like the Best Price 8-inch Memory Foam Mattress). You get what you pay for, though.

Is it a Worthwhile Purchase?

We believe the 16 Inch LUCID mattress is one of the best mattresses on the market and is definitely a worthwhile purchase, provided you’re willing to make a long-term investment.

 Many mattresses begin to give out around the 7-year mark. This mattress, though, should last you for longer. It will retain its shape and will give you a restful night’s sleep for a long time. There’s also the 25-year warranty if you encounter any problems.
