Idle has produced a mattress with a special design.Idle Mattress Bed Frame
Unlike other flippable bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle created their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was a concept that used to be common for lots of conventional innerspring mattresses till the costs got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could flip and opted for the more affordable to manufacture one-sided models.
In a novel move, Idle has actually brought back the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This distinct design allows you to flip the Idle over periodically to lengthen the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is especially useful in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Latex tends to sleep very 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 rather than glue which makes this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses come in 2 firmness choices: 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.
Heavier people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its perimeter.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to provide the best edge support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Despite the fact that there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a minimum amount of motion transfer. The separately enclosed coils isolate movement better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box classification this one may be a good alternative if you sleep with a partner or a family pet so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their motion.
