Tulo Mattress 10 inch Review
The tulo 10-inch Mattress has been designed and constructed by tulo, and it is made available to the purchaser in soft, medium and firm options depending on the personal preferences. The manufacturer caters to all the three preferences, and the mattress comes equipped with layers of ventilated memory foam as well as individualized comfort level and is delivered to the doorstep of the purchaser. It allows for a perfect night’s sleep and feels cool due to the unique blend of open-cell technology which forms an exclusive airflow system. Those people who neither like their mattress to be too firm nor too soft often go for the medium feel matters which provides a great balance between softness and firmness and keeps the sleeper cool and comfortable the whole night. It rejuvenates him/her and allows for freshness and vigor in the morning.
Material and Construction
The mattress has got a cover which is made out of Knitted Polyester, and Tencel Blended Fabric along with polyester Elastane blended material. Polyester gives the cover its durability and strength and gives it a very long life. Polyester, on its own, however, could be a bit hard and it does not absorb moisture. The Tencel Polyester fabric improves upon the qualities of the polyester and makes it highly suitable as a cover for this mattress. Polyester is also characterized by abrasion resistance, and it is also anti-shrink. The polyester fabric does not wrinkle as well. However, as described above, it is impermeable and therefore does not absorb moisture. It has also got a strong affinity for oil. It has got coarse and easy adsorption for dust. When Tencel is interweaved into polyester to create the Polyester Tencel fabric, all of these characteristics are improved even further. When the Polyester Tencel fabric is manufactured, the manufacturing process helps to lessen the deficiency between these two materials and the advantages obtained by these two become highlighted and thus, more prominent. The Tencel Polyester fabric is quite elastic in both dry and wet conditions, and this helps a great deal when one has to take the cover off the mattress or put it on. The blended fabric does not wrinkle or shrink, and its condensation rate is very low. It remains upright and very soft. The polyester Tencel blended fabric is softer in the vertical direction even more and has got a very high strength as well.
Elastane is spandex or lycra which increases the elasticity of the blende fabric once it is added to the polyester material. It is a synthetic fiber which is highly durable as well. Even though polyester is not stretchy at all when it is blended with Spandex or Elastane, it becomes elastic. However, this process does not cause any damage to polyester, and it continues to be durable and strong. Elastane, in fact has got the highest stretch tension among all of the textile raw and its addition with polyester ensures that the mattress cover is very easy to manage and to maintain.
The mattress contains four layers of foam, and the topmost layer is that of 2 inches of High-Density Coolflow Ventilated Memory Foam. This layer provides all the great benefits of viscoelastic memory foam and at the same time provides the coolness associated with the airflow system within this top layer. The High density of this foam material signifies higher quality as the strength and quality of the foam used in the mattress increase with its density. The higher density ensures that the memory foam is hypoallergenic as the dust mites and mildew, allergens. Do not live and thrive in it. Traditional spring beds have got up to a million dust mites which might be harmless, but they can cause a lot of allergies. This material does not allow such irritants to exist and this provides an allergen-free sleep environment on top of the mattress. This allows the sleeper to have a perfectly calm and worry-free sleep and also enables people who have allergy issues to use the mattress without worrying about getting stuffed noses or skin irritations when they get up in the morning.
The airflow enabled through this ventilated memory foam layer causes the air circulation to wick away sweat ad moisture away from the body. In conjunction with the breathable cover of the mattress, this top layer contributes to creating a perfectly cool and dry microsleep environment on top of the mattress as it stays moisture-free and allergen-free. As the body heat is dispersed away from the body as well due to the circulating air, the sleep temperature is also regulated and maintained at the desired temperature. This allows the mattress to thermally regulate the sleep environment as well. Thus, the sleeper gets to enjoy a perfectly cool and dry sleep and is not bothered at all by any skin irritants or allergens. On an overall basis, the top layer and the cover ensure that the sleep environment is cool, dry, allergen-free, dust-free and temperature regulated.
The top layer provides all the benefits of the viscoelastic memory foam as well. The memory foam conforms to the body and adjusts to its contours. It compresses in areas which are under the body and retains its shape in other areas As the body moves or shifts its position, the new areas under the body get compressed and the areas which had been in compression earlier regain their position. This prevents the body from rolling over the mattress as well. However, the sleeper does not get a ‘stuck’ feeling either as the memory foam layer cradles the body gently and molds around it. The memory foam layer distributes the body weight throughout the entire mattress, and this takes the pressure off the head, shoulders, and heels. These parts of the body come under severe pressure on traditional beds as the bodyweight is not evenly distributed throughout the surface of the mattress in those cases.
The memory foam layer relieves pressure points which are formed due to the action of the mattress applying a force in the upward direction in opposition to the gravitational pull downwards. The pressure points can cause a lot of stress to appear on the head, shoulders, neck, hips, knees, and heels. These points are relieved of stress, and the sleeper gets very comfortable in the most comfortable position he/she prefers. As a result of even distribution of body weight across the entire surface of the mattress and the pressure points being relieved, the sleeper does not get numb arms and legs or sore muscles when he/she wakes up in the morning. Thus, the top layer ensures body-conformance and pressure relief as well.
The second foam layer is a 1.5-inch layer of Responsive Soft Material which enables the matters to give a quick response to changes of weight on the mattress as the body moves over it or the sleeper gets up from the bed. The quickness in the response ensures that body impressions are not created on the mattress. The mattress compresses under the bodyweight but immediately retains its original shape as the weight moves away or shifts position. The quickness in response also ensures that the sleeper never gets the ‘stuck’ feel and at the same time does not roll over the mattress as it cradles him/her. The 3rd layer of foam used in this mattress is a 1.5-inch layer of High Resiliency Foam. High Resiliency (HR) foam is the highest grade of Polyurethane (PU) foam and has got a density of more than 2.5 lb./ft3. This foam layer has got body-contouring properties, and it is also very elastic and provides a high degree of support. Thus, it combines the action of the regular memory fam with that of the support foam and is a perfect layer to be inserted between the upper part of the mattress and the supportive layer at the bottom. It acts as a transitionary layer between comfort and support. This layer also distributes pressure across the entire layer and also prevents motion transfer. When a couple sleeps on the mattress, one sleep partner would not be disturbed by the movement of the other. This makes this mattress well-suited for couples with different sleep schedules. As one will get up, the other one would not feel the movement. The HR foam also increases mattress life and makes it very durable. In fact, the higher the resiliency, the more is the durability.
The bottom layer of the mattress is a 5-inch-High density Support Polyurethane (PU) foam. This material, as a result of its high density which is usually more than 5 lb/ft3 is very supportive and provides the required amount of support to the body as well as to the top layers of the mattress. The high density means that it is very robust, high quality, and has a long life. Thus, it is very durable. In All-foam mattresses like this one, the support foam layer replaces the coil spring layer used in hybrid mattresses. It provides not just support but also ensures that due to its high density, allergens and dust mites do not live and thrive in it. In conjunction with other layers, it makes the mattress hypoallergenic.

Comfort and Ergonomics
All the foam layers in this matter, as well as the Polyester Tencel fabric cover, contribute to [providing comfort. The cover is highly breathable, and as such it helps in maintaining coolness and dryness on top of the mattress and also helps in thermal regulation. Along with the top foam layer of the mattress, the cover ensures that the sweat and moisture are wicked away from the body and that a cool, temperature regulated sleep environment is created on top of the mattress. This provides a lot of comfort to the sleeper as it becomes very hard to go to sleep if the mattress is hot and moist.
The body-conformance of the mattress due to the memory foam layer and the quick responsiveness added to this property by the 2nd foam layer contributes in ensuring that the body is always cradled very gently and when it moves to another position, nobody impressions are created. The mattress responds very quickly as the weight of the body shifts, and thus, the body never feels ‘stuck’ on the mattress. At the same time, the comfort level is such that the body does not roll over the mattress either. The quick response layer ensures a high level of pushback (as opposed to bouncing back in the case of traditional coil springs), and this allows the mattress to regain its shape very quickly but not in an uncomfortable way. The pushback does not jolt the body out of the mattress. It is very gentle. The mattress also enables motion isolation and sleep partners on the mattress do not get bothered by each other’s’ movements. This suits couples with different work and sleep schedules as when one gets up; the other one is not bothered at all. AS soon as one sleep partner gets up, the quick response layers enable the mattress to regain its shape on the now vacant part of the surface immediately.
The absence of the allergens, as well as the dust mites, is an enormous source of relief and comfort to people who face allergy-related issues. They can confidently sleep on this mattress knowing well that they would not wake up the next morning with skin irritations or stuffed noses. The mattress also remains very clean and sanitary this way and is very easy to keep clean and maintain. The mattress also distributes the weight of the body evenly across the surface of the mattress and relieves pressure points. It relieves stress on the head, shoulders, neck, hips, knees, and heels and these are the body points that come under severe stress and pressure on a traditional bed. In conjunction with the body-conformance which creates the right ergonomics for a perfectly comfortable sleep position, the pressure relief adds to the comfort level and lets the sleeper enjoy a perfectly calm, soothing and relaxed sleep throughout the night.
Thee can be no comfort without adequate support at the bottom. The high-density PU foam layer provides a perfect base for the upper layers of the mattress as well as the body. The support ensures that the body does not sink into the mattress. At the same time, the support foam enables and supports motion isolation which is a great feature for couples as described earlier.
Durability and Warranty
The tulo 10-inch Mattress has been designed with three different firmness options. Regardless of the firmness level, the mattress is very durable as it contains high-quality materials. The cover contains polyester and Tencel which are both highly durable and robust materials. They last for a very long time and provide the sleeper with the same quality level even after years of use. The foams used in the mattress are also very high-quality foams. The cool ventilated memory foam has got an open cell structure, and it allows air circulation through it. This keeps the foam clean and sanitary thereby increasing its life The sweat and moisture are wicked away, and the cover, as well as the foam layers, remain fully aerated thereby ridding the mattress of odors and moisture which could degrade the mattress in the long run.
The other foam layers have high densities, and they also ensure that there are no allergens and dust mites living inside these layers. The high density of the foam layers ensures high foam quality as well. In conjunction with the build quality of the mattress, the foam layers ensure a high level of durability. Their durability is undoubtedly affected by how well the matters is maintained as well. When the mattress arrives, it needs to be off-gassed in an airy place in the house preferably with the fan turned on. In a few days, the process gas is replaced by the cleanroom air, and the initial odor in the mattress goes away. During use, if the mattress gets a liquid spill, it can be oozed out by the use of a piece of cloth on which pressure can be applied. Once it is oozed out, the mattress can then be cleaned with water-based products. Under no circumstances, should any chemical or bleach should be used. Heat should also not be applied, and the mattress can be air-dried. Heat would affect the memory foam’s body-conforming properties, and therefore, heating pads and electric blankets should be avoided on this mattress.
It is important to note that the mattress is placed on a solid bed frame or foundation and should not be allowed to sag. The bed frame or the foundation should hold it firmly so that it does not slide or wobble as sliding and wobbling would damage the mattress. The mattress can be vacuumed often to keep it clean.
