The unique style of the Idle Sleep mattress will appeal to a lot of people.Idle Mattress
They have actually made a mattress with the SAME firmness on both sides which really makes this mattress stick out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brand names that have a different firmness choice on each side.
This was an idea that used to be common for lots of conventional innerspring mattresses until the expenses got too high to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped offering the ones you could turn and opted for the more affordable to produce one-sided models.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the dual sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique design enables you to turn the Idle over periodically to lengthen the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or imprints from happening. This is specifically helpful when it comes to couples where one partner is heavier than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryIdle 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 duration of 18 months which is around 540 days. If at anytime within the 18 month trial you decide Idle is not the best 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 industry– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Constructed?
Idle has 2 models that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ tall and created with carry handles attached on the sides which make it simple to flip them.
They are also suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (individuals that rotate between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also recommended for people with back pain because the coils will give your spine support while the foam or latex will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made with are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which offers 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 stay cooler than memory foam and gives far better pressure relief for areas like back and hips.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer serves 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.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— explained above.
1 ″ Response Foam— explained above.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— 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.
This mattress comes with a choice of either Dunlop or Talalay latex.
Cover— The natural organic cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to provide comfort and additional softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers provides cooling and bounce to the mattress in addition to providing it more support than ordinary memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial qualities, 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 firmness from edge to edge.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— described above.
1 ″ Top— described above.
The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made from organic cotton and wool which are both breathable materials and aid with airflow and cooling.Idle Mattress
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the in the same way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to hold the layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a green method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness possibilities: 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 people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its border.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to provide the best edge support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Although there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a very small amount of motion transfer. The individually enclosed coils isolate motion better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box classification this one might be an excellent choice if you sleep with a partner or a pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their motion.
- Suitable for all sleeping positions
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided style extends the life of the mattress
- Good for individuals who like the feel of traditional innerspring mattresses but would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
- More bounce which in turn causes some movement transfer
The Idle mattresses are designed to be utilized on a variety of bases consisting of box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds or perhaps the rug.
