Luma Mattress Review
The Luma Mattress is the signature mattress from Luma Sleep, a bed-in-a-box company founded in 2015. This latex hybrid mattress is made with a combination of pocketed coils and Talalay latex, which provides breathability, responsiveness, and support. The original Luma Mattress offers balanced pressure relief, temperature moderation, and very little motion transfer. Buyers can choose from three different firmness options. Luma offers additional models, such as the Natural Latex Hybrid, which has additional layers of latex; the Luma Hybrid Slumber System, which has interchangeable comfort layers; and the Latex Slumber System, and all-latex mattress).

Luma Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The Luma Mattress is a soft, breathable mattress that provides the pressure relief of a traditional all-foam model, but with the added responsiveness of pocketed coils. The top layer includes 2 inches of natural latex that shapes to the contour of sleepers’ bodies.
Choose the Luma Mattress if…
- You want a mattress with support and resilience.
- You’re looking for a high-quality hybrid that is also budget-friendly.
- You tend to sleep hot.
- You want a durable mattress with a long lifespan.
Keep Shopping if…
- You need a moveable, lightweight bed.
- You want the “sink” of memory foam. While this mattress does have ample cushioning, the feel of latex differs from that of foam.
- You need a silent bed. Since the Luma Mattress is a hybrid model with springs, it is possible that the coils may make a small amount of noise, especially as the mattress ages.

How Does the Luma Mattress Feel?
The feel of the Luma Mattress depends on which firmness level you choose. The Luma Mattress comes in three firmness levels. Scored from least firm to most firm on a 1-10 scale, the Plush model rates medium soft (4), the Medium is medium firm (6), and the Firm model corresponds to a firm (7).
The Luma Mattress is a latex hybrid, so all firmness levels support and conform to your body without the “sinking into quicksand” feeling you might feel on standard memory foam. The Plush option offers a softer feel with more cushioning, while the Firm option will provide more resilience and steady support. The Medium option lands somewhere between the two, right in the center-of-the-road firmness range that most people prefer in a mattress.
In addition, all three models are topped with a Tencel cover to make the sleep surface smooth and soft.
What Is the Luma Mattress Made Of?
The Luma Mattress has three main layers and a cover:
The cover of the Luma Mattress is made from Tencel lyocell fabric. This material is moisture-wicking and breathable, and helps air move throughout the mattress to prevent buildups of mustiness, excessive moisture, and body heat. The Tencel also gives the sleep surface a soft, inviting feel.
The comfort layer of this mattress consists of 2 inches of natural, open-cell Talalay latex. The latex responds to the unique contours of your body, and compresses in response to pressure as you move in your sleep. This allows the Luma Mattress to provide pressure relief for the back, hips, and shoulders. For hot sleepers, the Luma Mattress’ aerated latex helps fight the heat retention that is sometimes common with latex mattresses.
Beneath the comfort level is an 8-inch base comprised of pocketed coils. Each coil is individually covered in its own fabric sheath, which helps the coils act independently as well as in unison. Pocketed coils make it easier for the Luma Mattress to respond effectively to pressure on different parts of the mattress, while also preventing motion transfer from one part to another. Additionally, these coils help the mattress fit the contours of each individual body.
The support core rests on a 1-inch base level of extra-dense high-density polyfoam. This foam layer protects the coil system and increases its durability and lifespan. It also gives the bed added shock absorbency and resilience.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Luma Mattress Best For?
Different mattresses are designed to accommodate different sleeping positions. We’ll break down how the Luma Mattress sizes up with different sorts of sleepers:
People who sleep on their side tend to put their weight on their shoulders and hips. In order to keep the spine aligned and to prevent pressure points from developing, side sleepers need a little more cushioning than other sorts of sleepers. The Luma Mattress gives side sleepers contouring support they need for proper spinal alignment. Side sleepers under 130 pounds will likely prefer the Plush option of the Luma Mattress, since it provides the most cushioning. However, side sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds may want to select the Medium option, as the added support helps keep the spine aligned.
Back sleepers generally need strong support to keep their spines in alignment. The Luma Mattress has responsive cushioning from both latex and pocketed coils, which gives back sleepers more than enough lower back support to sleep soundly and comfortably. The Firm option performs the best for back sleepers, generally, though some may prefer the Medium or Plush models.
Stomach sleepers need support to keep their hips and lower abdomen from sinking too far into the mattress. The Luma Mattress provides stomach sleepers with enough resilient support and cushioning to keep the hips in alignment and to prevent pressure points from occurring. The Firm option will provide the best support for sleepers who use this position, though those who prefer softer surfaces may still find the Medium or Plush versions comfortable, especially if they weigh less than 130 pounds.
Combination sleepers tend to switch positions, either when they initially fall asleep or while they are sleeping. They need different types of support depending on their position but in general, the Luma Mattress provides enough cushioning and resilient support to keep most combination sleepers comfortable. The Luma Mattress is especially good for combination sleepers because it is quite easy to move around on the surface of the mattress.
How Does Body Weight Impact Performance?
While personal preference will of course play a role in what each individual considers comfortable, in general, sleepers under 130 pounds will find the Plush option preferable, while sleepers over 230 pounds will be best served by the Firm option since it provides the most robust support. Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds tend to prefer the Firm model if they sleep on their backs or stomachs, though side sleepers in this weight range will appreciate the additional cushioning offered by the Medium version.
Is the Luma Sleep Mattress Good for Couples?
The Luma Mattress is a great mattress for couples. The mattress offers excellent responsiveness for sex. Additionally, the edge support of this mattress – especially with the Medium and Firm options – will allow couples to make the most out of their sleep surface and sleep as far toward the edge as they’d like without feeling like the bed is sinking beneath them. The Luma Mattress also offers decent motion isolation. This is especially helpful if one or both members of a couple is a light sleeper and is easily disturbed when their partner gets in and out of bed, or when they move around in their sleep. The Luma Mattress’ temperature control also keeps the mattress from getting too hot, which is especially important considering the doubled body heat of two people.
