Getting a good night’s sleep is dependent on several factors, but the biggest one is the comfort of your mattress. Studies say that adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, but trying to sleep on a mattress that is unsupportive and uncomfortable will prevent you from catching those all-important “z’s”. LUCID’s 14-inch Plush Memory Foam Mattress is an inexpensive solution many may be looking for. With its four layer memory foam design, it is both supportive and soft. The mattress is CertiPUR-US certified and made to be safe for your health as well as the environment.
