Idle has developed a mattress with an unique design.Idle Mattress Breaking Down
Unlike other flippable bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle produced their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was a concept that used to be typical for lots of conventional innerspring mattresses until the costs got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped offering the ones you could turn and chose the cheaper to manufacture one-sided variations.
In a bold move, Idle Sleep has actually revived the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This special style enables you to flip the Idle over regularly to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is particularly useful when it comes to couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryIdle Mattress Breaking Down
Handcrafted in the U.S.A., Idle Sleep has actually been making mattresses since 2017.
You can sleep on an Idle mattress risk free in your home for a full 18 months to decide if Idle is right for you. If at anytime within that trial period you choose Idle is not the ideal 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 market– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Constructed?
Idle has two models that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ high and smartly made with carry handles attached on the sides which make it easier to rotate them.
They are also well-suited for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that rotate between positions during the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress gives them some relief from pain because the springs will provide support for your spinal column while the latex or foam will give cushioning support for 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 upper layer which provides 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 much better pressure relief for places like back and hips.
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 Thermocool fabric cover will help keep regulate the temperature, so you will sleep comfortably.
You can order this hybrid with Dunlop or Talalay latex.
Cover— This all cotton cover has a 1 inch layer of natural wool woven into it to offer more comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress as well as giving it more firmness than ordinary 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 firmness from edge to edge.

The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of natural cotton and wool which are both breathable fabrics and help with airflow and cooling.Idle Mattress Breaking Down
Latex tends to sleep very cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to hold the layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a natural method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness choices: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of picking 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 firm the bed is around its boundary.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to provide the very best edge support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little motion transfer even though these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately wrapped coils isolate movement far better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one might be an excellent alternative if you sleep with a significant other or an animal so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their motion.
- Suitable for all sleeping types
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided design extends the life of the mattress
- Great for individuals who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses yet would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam

The Idle mattresses are designed to be used on a variety of bases consisting of box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds and even the carpet.
