Idle has actually created a mattress with an unique design.Idle Mattress Height
They have made a mattress with the very SAME firmness on both sides which really makes this mattress stand apart from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brands that have a different firmness option on each side.
This was an idea that used to be common for many traditional innerspring mattresses until the costs got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could flip and opted for the more affordable to manufacture one-sided variations.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique design enables you to turn the Idle over occasionally to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is specifically useful in the case of couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness selections: 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 discover the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its perimeter.
