Tuft & Needle or Tulo: When Comfort Matters

A mattress is one of the most important purchases of your life. When mattress hunting, there is an overwhelming number of brands that require your attention. Tuft & needle and Tulo are two brands that have mastered the art of providing comfort. But which one should you pick out of the two? Check out our detailed guide of the two brands, starting from the similarities (or as we’d like to call them, shared attributes) between the two.

Tuft & Needle or Tulo – Shared Attributes

  • Multiple models: Both brands sell multiple mattresses, catering to a wide range of sleepers. Whether you have back pain or sleep on your stomach at night, you’re sure to find a suitable mattress regardless of the brand.
  • Bounce: Another shared trait characteristic of these two mattress brands is the bounce. While foam is the primary material used in their construction, both companies incorporate layers that add some lively, comfortable lift to the mattress’ structure.
  • Durability: Most mattress sleepers are on the lookout for mattresses that will survive wear and tear for a good period. You’d be glad to know that both Tuft & Needle and Tulo claim to make units that can last for over 7 years for an average sleeper.
  • Neutral temperature: Since both mattresses are “all-foam,” they don’t trap the body heat of the sleeper, saving you from loads of sweat. If sweating through your sheets still occur, don’t contact the mattress company – evaluate your choice of PJs and the thermostat instead.

Now that you know the similarities between the two mattresses, let’s look at how they differ.

Second layer is shaped like eggcrates and its job is to send away the trapped heat. It is firmer than the first layer and has a supportive function. The third layer reduces pressure on key areas of the body while the last polyurethane layer provides shape and support to the mattress. Therefore, it is advised to patients with sleep apnea and other body pains.
