Lull Pillow Review
We put the Lull Bed Pillow to the test in this individual review.
Last Updated: August 31, 2020
Lull is one of the most popular bed-in-a-box mattress companies out there. And like the rest of the industry, in addition to making a mattress, they also make a pillow. In this post we get into the details about the Lull Pillow, including sleeper type, temperature regulation, feel/firmness, care, and more.
- Free Shipping & Returns
- 100 Nights Trial Period
- 1 Year Warranty
Lull Company Policies
The Lull Pillow, just like every other pillow that we’ve reviewed, ships completely free. It actually shows up in a box, but the pillow itself is not compressed (i.e. the box is the size of the pillow).
This won’t matter at all to you or affect the feel of the pillow, but it’s sort of interesting considering that most other pillows (such as the Helix Pillow) are compressed and jammed into a box.
Lull also gives you a 100-night trail period with the pillow. This your opportunity to test the pillow to see if it is indeed the pillow you that were hoping it would be. Clearly, most people keep the pillow, otherwise Lull wouldn’t offer the trial period. This is the same policy that they have on the Lull mattress by the way.
In the event that you don’t like or want to return the pillow, for whatever reason during the trial period, Lull will refund you 100% of your money. Lull will actually send you a FedEx label so that you can return the pillow. You don’t need to return it in the original packaging either; you can use any box to ship the pillow back.
If you keep the pillow, it comes with a 1-year warranty.
Lull Pillow Price
At $75 and $85, Lull is pricing the pillow as an affordable luxury item. They’re not trying to make a fancy pillow with all sorts of technology inside like you’ll see with the TempurPedic TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Pillow. This is just supposed to be a nice pillow at a slightly higher price point.
We haven’t seen Lull offer any coupons on their pillow, but you can check Lull.com to see what offers and promotions they’re running right now.
Construction and Feel
This is a three-layer pillow filled down alternative and wrapped in a cotton cover. The down alternative is polyester microfibers and give the pillow a more traditional feel.
The inner core of the pillow is a more dense layer of microfibers while the top and bottom of the pillow are softer. Lull structure the pillow this way so that you get the durability and support from the center core and the pressure relief and contouring from the top and bottom layers.
Think of a fluffy, soft pillow—that’s the Lull Pillow. It feels like your traditional down pillow, even though it doesn’t actually use down or feathers. As a result, it doesn’t get all lumpy and is really responsive.
The cover of the Lull Pillow is non-removable and doesn’t have any special cooling textiles woven in. This means that the pillow sleeps more neutral in terms of temperature. So, if you’re looking for a cooling pillow, Lull isn’t it. You might want to check out the Leesa Hybrid Pillow, as an example.
As for how you clean the Lull Pillow, the entire thing is machine washable. Lull advises that you wash on warm, with a delicate cycle, and mild detergent. They also say that you should tumble dry on low heat or just leave it out to air dry. You should wash it every 3-6 months.
Who is the Lull Pillow Best For?
Because we are all different sizes, shapes, and weights, there is no single best pillow for everyone. Lull is a non-adjustable pillow, meaning you can’t add or take away material from it.
Uncompressed, the Lull Pillow is about 8″ in terms of loft. When you lay your head on it, the loft drops to about 3-4″ depending on the size and weight of your head. This makes the pillow best for back, side, and combo sleepers that typically require a pillow with moderate loft.
Stomach sleepers won’t love the Lull pillow right away, simply because the loft is so high. The pillow will soften and compress overtime, which bodes well for stomach sleepers. Even so, however, if you want to sleep on your stomach with this pillow, you’ll probably want to hug the edges.
Stomach sleepers typically want a thinner pillow because it will kink their neck less. The taller the pillow, the more stress you’ll be putting on your neck as you sleep.
Lull Pillow Review: Verdict
Here’s what it all comes down to. If you want a more traditional-feeling pillow, that’s the Lull Pillow. If you want a back/side/combo sleeper pillow, that’s the Lull Pillow. If you want a washable pillow, that’s the Lull Pillow. If you want a cuddly, soft pillow, that’s the Lull Pillow.
There are three major reasons not to get this pillow, however. First, if you don’t want to spend over $50 on a pillow, clearly, the Lull Pillow isn’t for you. Second, if you want a cooling pillow, again, Lull isn’t for you. Third, and finally, if you don’t like down pillows—you get it—the Lull Pillow isn’t for you.
We were sent this pillow by Lull in order to review it. As always, however, we did not accept any monetary compensation to say good or bad things about the pillow. We review products by ourselves without the input of brands.
It’s made in the US, but uses imported materials.
You will receive free shipping and Lull says it will be between 1 and 4 business days. They ship the pillow via FedEx.
No. The cover is not removable, but the entire pillow is machine washable.
Not really. It just smells like a pillow. No strong chemical smell.
The standard size is 26″ x 18″ and weighs in at 5.4 lbs. The king size is 34″ x 18″ and is about 6 lbs.
