Idle has produced a mattress with an unique design.Idle Mattress Set Up Time
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 typical for many traditional innerspring mattresses until the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could turn and opted for the more affordable to manufacture one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This unique design allows you to turn the Idle over occasionally to extend the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from taking place. This is particularly useful in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Latex tends to sleep extremely cool because it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to keep the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a natural method.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness options: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of selecting 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 firm the bed is around its boundary.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to supply the best edge support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much motion transfer although these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately wrapped coils isolate motion better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box classification this one might be a good choice if you sleep with a significant other or a family pet so your sleep will not be impacted by their movement.
