Idle has developed a mattress with a distinct style.Idle Mattress Review After 1 Year
Unlike other dual-sided 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 common for numerous conventional innerspring mattresses up until the expenses got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped offering the ones you could flip and chose the less expensive to produce one-sided variations.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This special design enables you to flip the Idle over periodically to extend the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is particularly advantageous when it comes to couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

How is the Idle Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ tall and created with carry handles attached to the sides which make it simple to rotate them.
They are also excellent for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that turn between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also preferred for people with back pain because the coils will give your spinal column support while the latex or foam will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made with are known for their cooling qualities.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which provides it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is created with aerated foam which provides cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and provides far 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.

The cover of the Idle Hybrid is made with Thermocool which is a material that helps keep you cool when you’re hot and warm when you are cool.

3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers offers cooling and bounce to the mattress as well as offering it more support than regular 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 act as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for optimal support from edge to edge.

The Latex Hybrid is made with 100% organic cotton, wool and natural latex which are materials that are known for their cooling qualities.Idle Mattress Review After 1 Year
Latex tends to sleep really cool since it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue to make this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness selections: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice of deciding upon 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 discover the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its perimeter.
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.
Although there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a minimum amount of motion transfer. The separately wrapped coils isolate motion much better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one may be an excellent alternative if you sleep with a spouse or a pet so your sleep won’t be disturbed by their motion.
- Suitable for all sleeping styles
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided style extends the life of the mattress
- Great for people who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses but would likewise want the body contouring feel of memory foam

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