Idle has actually produced a mattress with an unique design.Idle Mattress Grid
They have actually made a mattress with the exact SAME firmness on both sides which really helps this mattress stand out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brand names that have a different firmness choice on each side.
This was a model that used to be common for many traditional innerspring mattresses till the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped offering the ones you could turn and went with the more affordable to manufacture one-sided models.
In a daring move, Idle has brought back the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This unique design enables you to turn the Idle over periodically to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any drooping or indentations from occurring. This is especially advantageous when it comes to couples where one partner is larger than the other.

How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available 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.
Larger individuals will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its border.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to supply the very best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little motion transfer despite the fact that these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually wrapped coils isolate movement better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box category this one might be a great choice if you sleep with a spouse or a pet so your sleep will not be impacted by their movement.
