Set up test

The Tulo LIV mattress took us just over one minute to set up. This mattress was very light and easy to maneuver. It had handles and only a faint smell.

So for our setup test, the Tulo LIV gets a 9 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

The Tulo LIV struggled a bit to keep motion transfer to a minimum. Our mattress testers noticed they could feel one another moving around, so they gave it a collective score of 7.25 for this test.

Part B - The Wine

This glass of wine faired pretty well on the Tulo LIV; however, there was a slight lean in the glass. So we gave it an 8 for our wine test.

So for a total motion transfer score, the Tulo LIV gets an 7.6 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

The edge of the Tulo LIV provided decent support! Our testers gave it a score of 8.25 for our edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Once again, this edge proved to be safe and secure. It scored a 9 for the edge support test.

So Tulo LIV gets a total score of 8.6 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw a lot of red colors while sleep subject one was on the Tulo LIV. This indicates a decent amount was put on his body.

Sleep subject did not have as much red on her pressure mapping results. However, there is still some red in her shoulder.

So for a total pressure relief score, the Tulo LIV gets a 7 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

The Tulo LIV kept these spines mostly straight, but there is a bit of a curve leading to the base of their neck.

So for spine alignment, it scores an 8.5 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

The Tulo LIV did a pretty good job responding to our mattress testers’ movements as they adjusted their sleeping positions.

They scored it an 8.5 out of 10 for responsiveness.

The total Mattress Advisor score for the Tulo LIV mattress:

A look inside

The Tulo LIV mattress is comprised of three foam layers topped with a breathable knit cover designed to provide core support and universal comfort at a remarkably competitive price point.

  1. Comfort foam layer infused with LumaGel™: the first layer of Tulo LIV is a comfort layer of foam, infused with LumaGel™ to provide pressure-point relief for restful, restorative sleep.
  2. Supportive foam layer: designed to end tossing and turning by keeping your body supported all night long.
  3. Foundation layer: a great bed is nothing without a great base. The Tulo LIV provides 5” of support foam to keep your mattress lasting a long while.

What Tulo LIV customers have to say

  • “[The Tulo LIV] arrived as expected and was pretty easy to set up on our wooden slat bed frame. We did not need a box spring. The bed does need about a day for “offgassing” or the smell to go away. Other than that, it wasn’t a problem at all. My husband and I have no problems waking each other up if either one of us has to get up out of bed. It doesn’t feel like it gets too hot either. We both agree it’s the best purchase we’ve made in a while! I’m also very pregnant and this bed is very comfortable for me so that’s an extra plus!” – Verified Customer
  • “I have had my Tulo now for 2 weeks so it’s still pretty new. I will say I am falling asleep faster than I was on my old mattress and my back pain has disappeared! I feel supported on this mattress and I do not plan on returning it.”
  • “We’ve been on the Tulo LIV for about two weeks now and have had great nights sleep since day 1. Coming from a more traditional springy mattress I was skeptical at first, but the medium firmness of the foam really suits my wife and I as we are generally side sleepers. We recommend it.”
  • “I am pleasantly surprised with this Liv mattress! As someone who suffers from back and neck pain, I can say that this medium firm mattress is ideal for me. I usually sleep on my back, with some tendency to sleep on my side and this new Tulo mattress supports both my sleep habits!”

The finer print


The Tulo LIV Mattress comes with free red carpet delivery, meaning Tulo will deliver the mattress directly to your door, set up your bed, and haul away your old mattress. If red carpet delivery is not available in your area, then Tulo provides FedEx delivery, which should arrive at your doorstep within 3-5 business days.


If you do not opt to receive red carpet delivery (where Tulo sets up your mattress for you), the Tulo LIV mattress will come compressed and rolled up in a box. You will simply unbox, unroll, and watch it spring to life.


The Tulo Liv Mattress will work on any firm, flat surface. This includes a box foundation, flat frames, slats, adjustable frames or even the floor.

Return policy

If you’re not in love with your Tulo LIV mattress, you can return it for a full refund within your 120-night trial period. Tulo will arrange for a representative to come to your home to pick up your mattress and recycle it or donate it to a local charity. Tulo asks you give the mattress a try for at least 30 nights.


The Tulo LIV Mattress comes with a 10-year warranty.


To clean the Tulo LIV Mattress, simply spot clean with a homemade cleaning solution, upholstery or enzyme cleaner. Although the cover may be zipped off, do not put in the washing machine. It will shrink.

Bonus points

  • Made in the USA
  • The foams used to make the Tulo LIV mattress are CertiPUR-US Certified, meaning they are good for you and the environment.
