Level Sleep Mattress Review: TriSupport system
Three unique areas that work to provide an idea sleep firmness.
Each mattress we review sets out to solve the comfort/support issue differently. The creators at Level Sleep decided to divide their mattress into three separate sections. A softer head and shoulder area, a medium firmness hips and legs area, and a firm lower lumber zone. There is also an option for customers to upgrade to the Luxe version which as a top layer of latex for that extra bounce.
Because of the unique nature of this bed, it ‘s hard to give it a standard firmness. The head area is a softer Talalay latex that allows the sleeper’s shoulder and arm to sink into the bed. The softness is ideal for side sleepers who need the softness to reduce the pressure on their shoulders. The lower lumbar area of the back is the firmest part of the Level Mattress. This firmness gives support to the sleeper’s back much like ergonomic chairs.
The hips and legs portion of the mattress is a medium firmness. While not as soft as the shoulder area, the hips can sink comfortably into the bed. It may sound gimmicky, but sleepers will notice the extra support in the lower back. We were worried that the three different areas would make for an awkward sleep, but they transition smoothly between each other.
The Level Sleep Mattress has different levels of sinkages. If you press your hand into the top part, it is very soft. Sleepers will notice that their shoulders will sink a good amount into the mattress. The middle lumbar area is quite firm and doesn’t sink much. The hip area is more of a medium level, splitting the difference between the top and lower back.
Motion Transfer and Responsiveness
For our Level Sleep Mattress Review we focused on the Luxe mattress. The TriSupport Luxe bed comes with a thin layer of latex foam on the top. Latex is more responsive, meaning if you press down on it goes back to its original position faster. This response means moving around on the bed is easier. Memory foam is much less responsive, taking much longer to return to its original position. The benefit of this is a great deal less horizontal movement between the sleepers. The goal of any mattress is to have very little horizontal movement, while still having high responsiveness.
The level sleep performed almost exactly how we expected for a memory foam bed with a latex top layer. There is some bounce, but not as much as you would expect with spring mattress. There was a small amount of motion transfer, but still a bit more than sleepers would find with a full memory foam bed.
The Luxe Sleeps cool
We do recommend hot customers go for the Luxe version of the Level Sleep mattress. The top latex layer is essential for pulling heat away from the sleeper. Full memory foam beds tend to trap heat near the sleeper.
Not a lot of smell
We have yet to open a bed in a box that didn’t have a little smell when first opened. The Level Sleep is the same way, but the smell dissipates pretty quickly. All mattress materials are CertiPur-US certified.
