In honor of Sleep Week, Lucid's top-rated memory foam mattress is down to $155 for queen

'Finally, a full night's sleep': Over 7,500 Amazon shoppers give this supportive, cooling mattress their seal of approval.

Shopping for a mattress online can feel a bit tricky — it can seem like a leap of faith to swipe your card without actually having tested one before buying. The bright side of the online approach, however, is that you can see thousands of honest reviews before purchasing, which can take a fair amount of guesswork out of the equation.

This is exactly the case with this popular Lucid queen mattress on Amazon. Hundreds of shoppers gave it a perfect five-star rating with some saying it's the "best purchase" they've ever made and, best of all, it's one of the most affordable mattress deals available on Amazon right now, down to just $155 for a queen (from $200). The only time we've ever seen it priced this low is during last summer's Prime Day event. If you're suffering from restless nights, now is the time to buy.

This hypoallergenic and breathable gel memory foam mattress comes compressed in a box and fully expands in 24 to 72 hours.

Why is this a good deal?

We all know how pricey mattresses can get, so finding one for under $200 is almost unheard of. This queen-sized customer favorite was over $190 at the top of March, but was recently discounted to just $155, making this one of the best Sleep Week deals we've seen thus far.

Why do I need this?

According to the Sleep Foundation, it's recommended that the average adult (18 years and older) get seven or more hours of sleep. While this may be easier said than done for some, one of the key factors that affect the number of hours you clock is the type of mattress you buy. The Sleep Foundation notes that "choosing the best mattress that is supportive and comfortable" is key to getting a fully rested night's sleep and several shoppers say this Lucid queen mattress checks all the boxes.

Since it's made of memory foam, it provides a layer of soft support that molds to your body and leads to a more comfortable night's sleep than you'd likely get from a traditional innerspring mattress. This memory foam mattress has ventilation holes for air circulation and a gel-infused layer, both of which can help keep you cool as you sleep — a key feature for hot sleepers.

Unlike traditional old-school mattresses, this mattress comes compressed and rolled in a box for easy shipping and delivery. Once it arrives at your doorstep, simply unbox and unroll the mattress and wait 24-72 hours for it to fully expand.

What reviewers say:

This mattress has received tons of rave reviews from Amazon shoppers — several admitted to being surprised by just how supportive and comfortable it is, while others praise it for "finally" giving them a full night's sleep. One shopper who usually has terrible lower back and hip problems experienced no pain after sleeping on this mattress at a motel. She purchased it after finding out the model from the establishment, so she could rest just as easy at home.

"I went on a short vacation and slept on a bed that caused me no problems for the two nights I was there," the impressed five-star reviewer wrote. "I contacted the motel and this was the manufacturer of their mattresses, so I purchased. ... I now have ... absolutely wonderful sleep and have gotten up with no back or hip pains!"

Another shopper said this mattress gave her and her husband the "best sleep we've had in two years" and has even helped her husband sleep more comfortably, overall. "Can't really think of the words to express how amazing this mattress is," said this shopper. "After reading several good reviews, my husband and I decided to go with this." The same shopper noted that she suffers from major back damage and osteoarthritis in her back and "this bed relieves so much of the pain."

And if you love a firm mattress, one shopper said this one fits the bill perfectly. "My husband and I had been waking up with back pain due to our old mattress," the shopper wrote. "It has only been a few days and we can both feel a difference. Our bodies feel less sore overall."

As with many mattresses-in-a-box, the Lucid can take a few days to off-gas once its been unrolled. One five-star reviewer pointed out that the mattress attested to the odor, but did point out that "the smell went away after two to three days as indicated by the manufacturer."

Its top layer has ventilated memory foam infused with cooling gel, which can come in handy if you run hot while you sleep.
