Idle has created a mattress with a distinct design.Idle Mattress On Old Box Spring
They have actually made a mattress with the very SAME firmness on both sides which really helps 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 typical for lots of standard innerspring mattresses till the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could flip and chose the less expensive to manufacture one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the dual sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique style allows you to turn the Idle over regularly to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any drooping or indentations from happening. This is especially advantageous when it comes to couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.
