The special style of the Idle Sleep mattress will appeal to a great deal of people.Idle Mattress Protector Review
Unlike other dual-sided bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle developed their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was a model that used to be common for numerous conventional innerspring mattresses up until the expenses got expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you might flip and chose the less expensive to produce one-sided versions.
In a novel move, Idle has revived the flippable dual sided mattress.
This unique design enables you to flip the Idle over regularly to lengthen the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or imprints from taking place. This is especially advantageous when it comes to couples where one partner is heavier than the other.

They are likewise ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (people that turn between positions throughout the night.)

Both are constructed of materials which are developed to help you sleep cool and get a good nights rest.

Latex tends to sleep very cool because it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue making this a truly natural mattress.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness selections: 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 people 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 provide the best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much movement transfer despite the fact that these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually wrapped coils isolate motion much better than conventional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one may be a great alternative if you sleep with a partner or a family pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their motion.
