Nothing keeps your body humming with health quite like a good sleep. Luma Sleep was founded in 2015. They produce three types of mattresses that suit all types of sleepers. The company is known for using latex as the comfort layer of their mattresses. Luma offers 3 different models, each with 3 different firmness options: firm, medium and plush. We will cover all 3 of these models in this review, so let’s get to it!

All About Luma Sleep Mattress
• Comfort and Feel
Luma Sleep offers three models of mattresses:
The Luma Mattress is a hybrid model featuring a comfort layer made of Talalay latex. The support core is made of pocketed coils with a high-density polyfoam base layer. The cover is Tencel lyocell.
The Luma Hybrid Latex Slumber System has a customizable comfort system with a top Talalay latex layer (which can be swapped out for one with a different firmness) along with a fixed bottom layer also made from Talalay latex. The support core features pocketed coils and the cover is made from Tencel lyocell.
The Luma 11″ All Latex Slumber System has a comfort system with the same interchangeable top layer of Talalay latex and a bottom layer of Medium Firm Talalay latex. The support core is made from Firm Dunlop latex and the cover is Tencel lyocell.
These models all have 3 firmness options that are made with slightly different materials to provide different degrees of firmness required. The firm option is about 7.5/10 in terms of firmness. The medium firm is a 6/10 and the plush is a 3.5/10. These three options all have a different feel and level of comfort to suit the preference of any sleeper. For example, the plush firmness is more suitable for side sleepers as the pocketed coils help to relieve pressure when you sleep on your side.

• Motion Transfer
Sharing a mattress with a partner can pose a problem if the mattress does not isolate movement. That’s why many mattress companies aim to reduce motion transfer and Luma Sleep in no exception. Their mattresses impressively reduce motion transfer on all the three models.
Latex may not isolate motion as well as memory foam, but it still absorbs and minimizes movement to some extent. Hybrids with thicker comfort layers tend to isolate more motion. This is also where their Slumber System comes in handy. Luma Sleep states on their site ” Our Interchangeable Comfort Layer lets you change the firmness feel of your bed anytime, free for the first year. If you aren’t elated with the feel of your Luma Slumber System, we’ll ship you a firmer or plusher Comfort Layer Insert to make your bed feel just right.” The Slumber System can be a big help if you aren’t satisfied with the motion isolation. However, it does come at cost of an additional $400-$600.

• Delivery and Set-Up
All Luma Sleep mattresses are compressed, rolled, and shipped in a box. However, the comfort layer used in Slumber System models are shipped separately in a second box. After removal from the box, Luma claims that the mattress will take roughly an hour to fully expand. Unlike some companies, Luma delivers to customers in Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada. But they only offer white glove delivery to the lower 48 states. There is no added white glove delivery charge for the All Latex Slumber System model, but delivery for the Hybrid Latex and Luma Mattresses models will cost $99. White glove delivery also offers old mattress removal for an additional $60.
Their delivery policy is as follows:
- Orders cannot be altered for mattresses that are one to two days away from delivery.
- On average, customers receive their mattresses within 1-5 business days.
- Standard deliveries are coordinated through UPS ground or FedEx (even outside the 48 lower states). However, these two delivery companies do not offer old mattress removal, which is why it is only available through white glove delivery.
- Luma Sleep does not reverse refused deliveries.
Some people are sensitive to even the slightest smell of chemicals. Unfortunately off-gas is unavoidable in new products like mattresses. The best any company can do is reduce how long it takes for the odour to dissipate. Mattresses with latex in the comfort layer usually emit some odour when new, but it’s at least less pungent then the off-gas from synthetic foam mattresses. In general, the off-gas smell from Luma Sleep mattresses dissipates within 24-48 hours. This time frame will also give the mattress time to expand to reach it’s full height.
Off-Gassing Rating: 4.65/5
Sleeping in a cool and comfortable environment is vital for a good night’s rest. Latex is a breathable material that allows easy airflow in and out of the mattress. All Luma Sleep mattress models are made with latex, keeping them fresh and cool throughout the night.
Mattresses with poor edge support have a tendency to sink in when you sit on the edges. That means when you sleep close to the edge, you might feel like you will fall off. Typically, foam and latex mattresses have less than ideal edge support and sinkage at the edges. However, pocketed coils tend to fix that issue. Two of the three Luma Sleep mattresses (Luma Latex and Luma Hybrid) happen to be constructed with pocketed coils in the support layer, which gives them strong edge support. However, the Luma All Latex Slumber System doesn’t fair as well in edge support due to it’s lack of coils. As a result, that mattress is best for those who sleep alone.

• Trial and Warranty
Luma offers a 100-night sleep trial for all mattresses. Unlike other mattress companies, Luma sleep mattresses does not come with a mandatory 30-night break-in period. So, customers can ask for a refund immediately after purchasing the mattress if they are unsatisfied.
Luma will coordinate the mattress pickup and issue a refund within the 100-night sleep trial period. However, the mattress must be in good ondition to qualify for a return. Luma may request a picture. For slumber systems (Luma Hybrid Latex and Luma All Latex), customers are offered free comfort layer exchange for the first year of ownership. After the first year, customers will have to pay 20% of the cost of the new comfort layer in addition to $50 shipping.
Luma offers a 10-year warranty for the Luma Latex mattress and 15-year warranty for both the Luma Hybrid Latex and Luma All Latex. The warranty is only applicable if the mattress is used on a proper foundation system. In the case of a defective mattress, customers will not be responsible for charges related repair or replacement. Luma Sleep will also cover shipping and handling charges.
Trial and Warranty Rating: 4.65/5
A primary reason why I chose to review Luma Sleep is because it utilizes organic, natural, and CertiPUR-US Certified foams in their mattresses. CertiPUR-US is a certification program administered by a not-for-profit organization.
CertiPUR-US certified foams are:
- Made without ozone depleters.
- Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants.
- Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals.
- Made without formaldehyde.
- Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
- Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).
All three models of Luma sleep mattress have latex in their comfort layer. However there are a few differences beyond that. So, let’s break down what each mattress is mad from.
The Luma Latex Mattress is a hybrid featuring Talalay latex in the comfort layer, pocketed coils and high density poly-foam in the support layer, and a mattress cover made from Tencel lyocell.
Latex foam is elastic like memory foam, but organic and eco-friendly. It is also a bit firmer than memory foam. It is soft at first, but firms up as the sleeper’s body goes deeper. As a result, it doesn’t trap heat like memory foam and has a better air circulation. It is the ideal type of foam for sleepers with musculoskeletal ailments.
The support layer also features Polyfoam, which is similar to memory foams in terms of chemical composition, but lacks the viscoelastic property and that makes it firmer with quicker bounce-back. It is more resilient and it helps to support heavier parts of the body. It can be used for both comfort and support. Polyfoam, like memory foam, is made from polyurethane and some other chemicals. So, while these chemicals are not toxic, they also aren’t eco-friendly.
Pocketed coils also provide great support to these mattresses. The coils act independently to provide support from the centre of the mattress all the way to the edges.
The cover is made up of Tencel lyocell. This material is moisture wicking and soft to the touch. The moisture wicking characteristic of this material helps sleepers stay cool at night. It can be unzipped and washed. It not only acts as a cover, but also as a mattress protector.
The Luma Hybrid Latex Slumber System has a customizable comfort layer made of Talalay latex, which can be swapped for another layer with a different firmness also made with Talalay latex. The support core features only pocketed coils unlike the Luma latex mattress. The cover is also made up of Tencel lyocell.
The third model, The Luma All Latex Slumber System is purely made up of latex. It has a comfort layer with interchangeable top of Talalay latex and a bottom of medium firm Talalay latex. The support core is made of firm Dunlop latex and the cover is made up of Tencel lyocell.
I applaud the effort Luma Sleep puts into producing models of mattresses with varying characteristics, so that customers have a wide range of options to choose from.
Patrick Mahinge, a freelance writer for snorezing.com:
“Highly responsive: The Luma mattress is made from high quality Talalay latex, one of the most responsive materials around. As such, it helps play along with the contours of your body by giving your neck, back, and joints support just at the right spots.
Customizable comfort: The Luma mattress comes in three different levels of firmness. What’s more, users are given up to one year to change their firmness [email protected]: Since open-cell latex is all-natural, it is far more breathable than memory foam. The mattress’ Talalay foam is also ventilated to help increase airflow”
Overall Value and Recommendation
Luma Sleep is relatively new to the mattress market, so there is no long-term assessment of its performance. Other than that, there’s really nothing negative to say about Luma Sleep’s mattresses. They offer many choices of firmness and the prices are below average. Given the quality level of these mattresses, Luma is hard to beat! I would recommend these mattresses to anyone who:
- Has an allergy to chemicals.
- Enjoys sleeping in a bed that conforms to their shape without sinking in.
- Wants a luxury mattress at an affordable price.
- Wants a durable mattress.
- Wants to experiment with their ideal firmness level.
