The Positives

Plush Comfort

best memory foam mattress

Anything made with four layers of foam is pretty much guaranteed to be soft and luxurious in feel.

Unlike some foam mattresses that tend to compact rather quickly, the high quality build of the Serenity ensures that proper airflow and flex are maintained, so you can enjoy all the cushion with a fraction of the flattening over an extended period of time.

Its composition also includes Aloe Vera as an extra addition to really make sure that you are experiencing the softest of sleeps. 

No Night Sweats

A hot bed makes for a miserable night. Some memory foam mattresses can trap heat because their cells are too close together.

To combat this, the cells in MLILY memory foam have an open cell structure that facilitates air flow. This combined with the bamboo-lined cover and bamboo-infused memory foam makes for a cooler night’s sleep.

No more shifting to the coolest spot of the bed and no more turning over your pillow.

Environmentally Friendly

The Serenity is made with the health and safety of the environment and customers in mind by using natural and renewable materials and is free of potentially harmful substances including mercury, lead, heavy metal, formaldehyde and methylene.

Memory foam can be made of materials that are not only toxic to consumers, but are bad for the environment.

If you look at the makings of memory foam today you wouldn’t be able to recognize, or pronounce, most of the materials used. MLILY memory foam is made of renewable resources such as bamboo and natural oils which lessen their carbon footprint while lowering emissions.

They also use Castor Plant Oil in place of petroleum.

Reasonably Supportive


While you should expect some sinkage with the MLily Serenity, it still delivers excellent base support that keeps your neck and spine and alignment.

Let’s be clear — this isn’t the bed for you if you’re after firm support. But if you want a luxury soft bed that won’t leave you waking with aches and pains from unsupported joints then you could be in the market for the Serenity.

Minimal Motion Transfer

There’s almost a complete lack of motion transfer with the Serenity which I absolutely love.

No doubt aided by the multiple layers of high quality foam, you can be sleeping with a very restless partner and won’t feel a thing if you’re sleeping on this mattress. Ideal for light sleepers!

Easy Shipping and Setup

While the Mlily Serenity ships at 95 pounds in its queen size, you wont have to awkwardly lug the mattress to its resting place. All mattresses are shipped compressed and shrink-wrapped in a small box making it easy to collect.

Here’s a look into what the mattress looks like unpacked:

The Negatives

Expect a Bit of Sink

A 13 inch mattress with 5 different layers of foam was always bound to sink a bit, right?

Don’t get me wrong — some sleepers absolutely love that sinking feeling you get when you lay down on a soft bed, enveloped by plush clouds on the way to the Land of Nod. But some people don’t. I’m one of them.

As I mentioned earlier, the MLily Serenity is not the bed for you if you want some firm support beneath you. It’s strictly softies only.

If you want to sink into softness, I think you’ll love it. But there’s no doubt that this is a dealbreaker for some.

Probably not for Belly Sleepers

Leading on from that, I’d wager that you’ll find this bed a little too on the soft side if you’re a belly sleeper.

Stomach sleepers generally need a firmer surface to stop their hips from sinking in to the mattress. The Serenity is definitely not firm and will be more attractive to side and back sleepers.

Reasonably Expensive

The MLily Serenity is priced like a luxury mattress (which it arguably is) so will be out of many people’s price range.

I don’t think it’s overpriced but it’s natural to be less willing to compromise when you’re spending more on a mattress. So for me, the minor sinking that I mentioned above is a bit of a dealbreaker. If I’m spending a lot on a mattress, I want to really love it.

Hopefully you will.

One thing going in its favor is that it comes with a 10 year limited warranty so it has sufficient durability to last a long time and make the most of your investment. And it’s certainly made of quality materials.

MLily Serenity Memory Foam Mattress: the Details


The information below is about the Queen-sized configuration:

  • Product Dimensions: 60 x 13 x 80 inches
  • Item Weight: 86 pounds (ships at 95 pounds)
  • Available in: Twin, Twin XL, Full, King and California King

Material Composition

The MLily Serenity is made of four distinct layers that add to its overall comfort, design, and functionality.

Bamboo-Infused Memory Foam
The first layer contains a half inch of bamboo-infused memory foam that’s quilted into its cover. Now you may be wondering why there’s bamboo fibres, of all things, integrated into a mattress. At face value it may look unusual, but it serves an essential purpose. The bamboo fibres increase moisture wicking and help generate a greater airflow, which means that you won’t feel hot when you sleep.
M4 HD Memory Foam
The second layer contains two inches of M4 high density memory foam in the pillow top area. This makes the area incredibly soft, even without a pillow.
M36 Memory Foam + Contour 9
Three inches of M36 memory foam and Contour 9 make up the third layer. It’s crafted to help alleviate shoulder and hip pain, which is perfect for sleepers who prefer to dream on their sides.
Base Foam + Contour 9
The final, bottom layer is seven and a half inches of higher resiliency base foam with Contour 9 for shoulder and hip regions.

All MLILY memory foam is Certi-PUR US tested, which is the industry standard for ensuring low emissions. Since the mattress is all memory foam, this certification ensures that the mattress is made without ozone depleters, mercury, lead, other heavy metals, formaldehyde, methylene chloride, or PBDEs.

Their foams are also tested according to the OEKO_TEX Standard 100 certification system, a globally uniform standard that tests raw materials with the aim of eliminating harmful substances.

Made with sustainable materials, you can (literally) rest assured that you’re sleeping on an environmentally friendly mattress that won’t eventually lead to the destruction of our ecosystem.

MLily: the Brand

With so many name brands touting having the “best” prices, materials, and comfort, it can all be overwhelming. Which ones are honest – let alone reliable – and, nowadays, how can you know until long after you’ve already bought the mattress?

Despite being in business for six years, MLily is steadily making a name for itself among the giants in the sleep industry.

What began as a meeting of the minds turned into the making of a brand that’s hard to beat. Ben Folks, a retail mattress store owner from Tennessee, and James Ni, a mechanical wizard with the largest memory foam factory in China, worked individually for a decade improving their craft.

Folks’ goal was to create a great mattress at a lower cost, while Ni wanted to create quality memory foam without all the unnecessary waste. In 2011, they met to discuss mutual business interests, and thus MLILY came to life.

The goal of their new company was to create the highest quality product that not only cost considerably less than market price, but also eliminated waste and left less of a carbon footprint. With this in mind they created the MLily Memory Foam Brand, one of the fastest growing memory foam brands in North America, which incorporates all natural materials for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Overall Verdict

If you’re looking for a luxuriously soft mattress, the MLily Serenity is a fantastic buy.

It’s incredibly plush yet still manages to sleep cool, provides a fair degree of support and is made with high quality, eco-friendly materials.

I’d say it’s probably not for you if you’re looking for a firmly supportive mattress that doesn’t sink or if you’re on a tighter budget.
