Idle has actually developed a mattress with a special design.Idle Hybrid Flippable Mattress
Unlike other 2-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 a concept that used to be common for numerous traditional innerspring mattresses till the expenses got expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you might flip and went with the more affordable to make one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique design makes it possible for you to flip the Idle over occasionally to extend the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or indentations from happening. This is especially useful when it comes to couples where one partner is heavier than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Hybrid Flippable Mattress
Hand crafted in the USA, Idle Sleep has actually been making mattresses ever since 2017.
You can try an Idle mattress risk free in your home for a full 18 months to decide if Idle is comfortable for you. If at anytime within the 18 month trial you choose Idle is not the right mattress for you, they will coordinate a return or donation and refund 100% of your purchase price. Idle’s trial is the longest in the market– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Constructed?
Idle has two designs that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and include carry handles for ease in flipping over the mattresses.
They are likewise well-suited for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that turn between positions throughout the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also suggested for people with back pain because the springs will give your spinal column support while the latex or foam will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made out of are known for their cooling qualities.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which provides it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is developed with aerated foam which provides cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to remain cooler than memory foam and provides far better pressure relief for places like hips and back.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer functions 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.

1 ″ Response Foam— described above.

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

1 ″ Top— explained above.
The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fabrics and help with airflow and cooling.Idle Hybrid Flippable Mattress
Latex tends to sleep really cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue to make this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness possibilities: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice of choosing 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.
Heavier people will discover the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its boundary.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little movement transfer despite the fact that these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually enclosed coils isolate motion much better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box category this one might be a good option if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their movement.
- Suitable for all sleeping types
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided design extends the life of the mattress
- Good for people who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses but would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
