Lytton Sleep Mattress Reviews

The Bottom Line.

  • The Serene hybrid from Lytton Sleep offers a ‘medium’ feel and close body conforming for lighter side and back sleepers.
  • Both beds have Euro-top layers and organic cotton covers.
  • The Serene Plus: Comfort Firm hybrid does not conform as closely, making it a good option for heavier individuals.

Quick Summary

Lytton Sleep is a U.S.-based mattress manufacturer. The company currently offers two individual models:

  • The Serene: Comfort Plush, also known simply as the Serene, is a 13-inch hybrid model. The bed is constructed with a cover of hand-tufted organic cotton, a gel-infused memory foam Euro-top layer, and a polyfoam transitional layer. The support core features zoned pocketed coils, with thicker springs around the perimeter for added edge support. The Serene has a ‘medium’ feel that corresponds to a 5.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
  • The Serene Plus: Comfort Firm is also known simply as the Serene Plus. It shares the same thickness profile and general construction as the Serene. However, the Serene Plus has a ‘firm’ feel, or a 7 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

Both Lytton Sleep mattresses provide consistent temperature neutrality, which can be beneficial to hot sleepers. The reinforced edges also help protect the perimeter from sinkage, which may extend the beds’ lifespans.

The Serene conforms closely to align the spine and pad the shoulders and hips, making it a good option for most side sleepers, while the Serene Plus conforms to a minimal degree and provides stable support for heavier back and stomach sleepers.

Lytton Sleep’s mattresses have below-average price-points for hybrid models. The company also offers free shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S. Each bed is backed by a 100-night sleep trial and a 20-year warranty.

Read on to learn more about the Serene and Serene Plus in terms of construction, pricing, and performance. This review also includes some similar mattress recommendations and an overview of Lytton Sleep’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Lytton Sleep Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, Lytton Sleep mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a bed.

As you can see, each Lytton Sleep mattress has earned positive ratings from different sleepers based on position and body weight. The Serene has a medium (5.5) feel. It conforms closely, making it optimal for sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less. This is particularly true for side sleepers who prefer extra padding beneath their shoulders and hips.

The Serene Plus does not conform very closely, but it offers consistent contouring and even weight distribution. This bed earned the most positive ratings from individuals who weigh more than 230 pounds, especially back and stomach sleepers.

We Recommend a Lytton Sleep Mattress if...

  • You want to purchase a hybrid mattress with a below-average price-point
  • You tend to sleep hot
  • You prefer sleeping on bed with thicker profiles
