Idle has created a mattress with a distinct style.Idle Mattress Brand
They have made a mattress with the exact SAME firmness on both sides which really helps this mattress stick out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brand names that have a different firmness alternative on each side.
This was a concept that used to be common for many conventional innerspring mattresses till the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped offering the ones you might flip and opted for the cheaper to produce one-sided variations.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2 sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique style allows you to flip the Idle over periodically to prolong the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or indentations from happening. This is specifically useful in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Mattress Brand
The business, Idle Sleep, was founded in 2017 and is based in Colorado Springs, CO. All of the mattresses are hand made to order in the U.S.A..
Idle has an extremely generous sleep trial period of 18 months which is around 540 days. If at anytime within that trial duration 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 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 indicates that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ tall and designed with handgrips attached to the sides which make it simple to turn them.
They are also suitable for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that rotate between positions during the night.)
People with back pain may certainly find that a hybrid mattress provides them some relief from pain since the 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 materials that they are made out of are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which gives it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is created with aerated foam which supplies cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and offers 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.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— described above.
1 ″ Response Foam— explained above.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— described above.
The Thermocool fabric cover will help keep regulate the temperature, so you will sleep comfortably.
This mattress comes with a choice of either Dunlop or Talalay latex.
Cover— The 100% cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to offer comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers provides 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 springs 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.

1 ″ Top— described above.
The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fibers and assist with air flow and cooling.Idle Mattress Brand
Latex tends to sleep really cool due to the fact that it is aerated and won’t 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 natural 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 getting 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 individuals 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 support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Even though there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a very small amount of motion transfer. The separately enclosed coils isolate movement far better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one may be a good option if you sleep with a significant other or a family pet so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their motion.
- Ideal for all sleeping types
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided style extends the life of the mattress
- Great for people who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses but would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
- More bounce which in turn allows some movement transfer
The Idle mattresses are created to be used on a range of bases including box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds or even the ground.
