Idle has actually created a mattress with a special style.Idle Double Sided Mattress
Unlike other dual-sided bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle developed their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was an idea that used to be common for many conventional innerspring mattresses up until the expenses got expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could turn and chose the cheaper to produce one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2 sided flippable mattress is back.
This special design makes it possible for you to turn the Idle over occasionally to lengthen the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or imprints from taking place. This is particularly advantageous when it comes to couples where one partner is bigger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Double Sided Mattress
The business, Idle Sleep, was founded in 2017 and is based in Colorado Springs, CO. All of the mattresses are made by hand to order in the USA.
Idle has an extremely generous sleep trial period of 18 months which is around 540 days. If at anytime within the 18 month trial you decide Idle is not the right mattress for you, they will coordinate a return with you or donation and refund 100% of your purchase cost. Idle’s trial is the longest in the industry– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Constructed?
Idle has two models that are made with Certipur certified foams which means that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ high and designed with carry handles attached on the sides which make it easier to handle them.
They are likewise suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (people that turn between positions throughout the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress gives them some relief since the pocketed coils will provide support for your back while the latex or foam will provide cushioning support to pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made out of are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which provides it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is designed with aerated foam which provides cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and gives much better pressure relief for places like back and hips.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer acts as the core support of the mattress with high quality steel pocketed innerspring coils that go all the way to the edge of the mattress.

The cover of the Idle Hybrid is made with Thermocool which is a material that helps keep you cool when you’re hot and warm when you are cool.
Available with Dunlop or Talalay latex.
Cover— This natural organic cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to provide comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress in addition to providing it more firmness than regular memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial properties, too.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring coils that function as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for optimal support from edge to edge.

The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of natural cotton and wool which are both breathable materials and assist with airflow and cooling.Idle Double Sided Mattress
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool because it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue making this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness options: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of deciding upon a mattress with 2 Luxury Firm sides, 2 Medium sides or Medium on one side and Luxury Firm on the other side.
The Medium is around a 6.5 out of 10, where 10 is the firmest. The Luxury Firm is around a 9 out of 10.
Larger individuals will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its perimeter.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the very best edge support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little movement transfer even though these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately enclosed coils isolate motion far better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box class this one might be a great option if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their movement.
- Ideal for all sleeping positions
- Mattresses sleep cool
