There is a 100 Night Sleep Trial, which is commonplace in this sector, and there is also a 20-year warranty. However, the warrant is pretty limited, covering only manufacturer defects. You won’t be covered for accidental damage and spills, nor will you be covered if the mattress gets softer over time, as they so often do.
All Lytton Sleep mattresses are shipped free of charge across the contiguous United States.
Lytton Sleep is a relative newcomer to the mattress-in-a-box market, with USA-manufactured products, a free trial, and a massive 20-year warranty. There is a small selection of mattresses available, but these should cover a wide range of users and preferences.
These solidly made, super-plush mattresses may not be the cheapest on the market, but they are highly affordable for what they provide, giving consumers a taste of true comfort for approximately $1,000.
The basic Lytton Sleep mattress provides a middling level of support. It is in the Goldilocks zone—not too soft, not too hard. The models are built using four layers:
- 8” Layer: Pocket coil layer to provide base support.
- 3” Layer: Serene foam temperature control layer that also helps to relieve pressure. A natural foam that offers support and reduces motion transfer.
- 1” Layer: Gel memory foam layer for support and cooling.
- Cover: Breathability cover layer made from hand-tufted cotton.
The Plus model is built using the same materials but is a little firmer thanks to the addition of denser foam.
It’s a solidly built product that effectively manages the temperature. It’s not as complex as some of the other products we have covered, however, and the limited options with regards to firmness and support will put some consumers off.
The Lytton features a hand-tufted cotton cover. It feels great, providing a plush and luxurious finish, is breathable, and should be durable enough to last for years to come.
One of the few issues we have with this cover, and the mattress, on the whole, concerns the fabric buttons. These are much larger than usual, creating sizable indents that you can feel when you lie down. However, while this is initially off-putting, it’s something you stop noticing after a couple of nights.
Firmness, Feel & Support
There is very little sinkage with the Lytton Sleep mattresses and even the basic model provides a lot of support for heavier individuals. However, customers who prefer that extra firmness and weigh a little more will benefit greatly from the Plus model.
The cotton cover gives this mattress a luxurious finish that has to felt to be understood and we really like the addition of Serene Foam, which has a cooling, supporting effect while allowing the mattress to breathe, thus reducing the build-up of nasty odors.
The Comfort Plush model has an Impression Load Deflection (ILD) score of 12, while the Plus model is 22. It is a sizeable difference and for back sleepers seeking some additional stability and support, it’s worth the upgrade. In other words, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most firm, Comfort Plush is about a 5.5 whereas Comfort Firm is about a 7.5.
The mattress should last for at least 10 years, and the warranty is good for 20 years. Keep in mind, however, like for all mattresses, it does not cover wear and tear or issues resulting from improper use and care. You can extend the mattress’s lifespan by rotating the mattress 180 degrees every 6 months and following the instructions on the label.
Purchase & Delivery Process
All orders are shipped free across the United States. The mattresses are wrapped in plastic, packed into a box, and need to be left to expand and breathe when they have been unpacked.
The 100 Night Sleep Trial gives you a chance to test the mattress for yourself before fully committing and Lytton Sleep recommends that you give it at least 30 nights before making your decision. This is true for all mattress-in-a-box brands as it can take a while to settle and to get used to the change.
If you do experience an issue with your Lytton Sleep mattress, you will need to email them or send a message using a form on their website. This is one of the few issues that we have with the company—there is no physical address, phone number, or Live Chat. It’s frustrating if you have an issue and it’s also very unusual, but it’s increasingly becoming the norm for companies like this as it allows them to keep costs low and focus on creating a high-quality, affordable product.
Email support from Lytton Sleep is quite good. They respond quickly, are very friendly, and provide the help you need. Phone support is also available during business hours. An FAQ page available on their website provides answers to common questions.

Every Lytton Sleep mattress is designed and made in the United States using premium materials, from the cotton covers to the Serene Foam inner. It’s not the cheapest product on the market, but it’s not the most expensive either and you get a quality product for your money.
There are downsides, of course, including the fact that support is limited to email and customization options are few and far between. Lytton Sleep also doesn’t have the variety found with brands like Casper, where you can buy everything from bed frames to bedding.
But Lytton Sleep isn’t trying to be anyone else. It has its own style and product; its own way of doing things. And when it produces a mattress that feels great, supports well, and should last for years to come, it’s hard to argue with that.
