The Lucid 10″ Gel Memory Foam Mattress is a cheap alternative to most foam mattresses on the market, with little promise that it will hold up.
Even after 3 whole days the mattress did not fully expand. The corners varied in height by up to a whole inch. When the mattress was inspected closer it was clear that the middle sagged slightly. When placing a 2” x 4” across it and measuring the distance between the mattress and plank, it was clear that it sagged by ¾ of an inch. There was a slight smell but it did not linger for very long and was easily tolerated. The mattress cover sagged as a result of wonky dimensions and was an unsightly mess. Overall, out of box appearance left a lot to be desired, even for the low price point.
Folds from the saggy mattress cover are quite uncomfortable when sleeping on top of them. It was a bit of a battle to remove the additional cover in order to flatten out Lucid’s cover’s folds, but they would always persist and re-fold after a night or two. The sag in the middle of the mattress seemed to get progressively worse night after night. It would be unrealistic to expect the mattress to hold up and not have a giant hole in the middle after a few months.
As noted above, the dimensions were warped and the cover sagged. The stitching and construction of the cover appeared tight and sturdy. But what good is a high-quality cover if it does not fit the warped mattress? Even when considering that the mattress is a mid-tier level mattress, it leaves a lot to be desired in the way of overall quality.
Stomach and side sleeping was very comfortable and plush, however it was necessary to sleep on the edges in order to avoid the sag-hole in the middle. The mattress was not firm enough to adequately support back sleeping.
