Idle has actually created a mattress with a distinct design.Idle Mattress Top Layer
Unlike other 2-sided bed-in-the-box mattresses which have a different firmness on each side, Idle created their mattresses with the SAME firmness on both sides.
This was an idea that used to be typical for numerous traditional innerspring mattresses until the expenses got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped offering the ones you might flip and chose the less expensive to produce one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2 sided flippable mattress is back.
This special design enables you to turn the Idle over regularly to prolong the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or imprints from happening. This is especially helpful in the case of couples where one partner is heavier than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Mattress Top Layer
The company, Idle Sleep, was founded in 2017 and is based in Colorado Springs, CO. All of the mattresses are handmade to order in the USA.
Idle has a really generous sleep trial duration of 18 months which is around 540 days. If at anytime within that trial period you choose Idle is not the right mattress for you, they will coordinate a return or donation and refund 100% of your purchase price. Idle’s trial is the longest in the market– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
Idle has 2 models that are made with Certipur certified foams which means that they consist of no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and include handgrips for ease in handling the mattresses.
They are likewise ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that turn between positions throughout the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also recommended for people with back pain because the springs will give your spinal column support while the foam or latex will cushion your pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the materials that they are made out of are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which gives it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is designed with aerated foam which offers cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and gives better pressure relief for areas like hips and back.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer serves 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.

1 ″ Response Foam— described above.

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.
Available with Dunlop or Talalay latex.
Cover— This all cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to supply comfort and additional softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress along with providing it more support than ordinary memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial qualities, too.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring springs that serve 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.

1 ″ Top— explained above.
The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of natural cotton and wool which are both breathable materials and assist with air flow and cooling.Idle Mattress Top Layer
Latex tends to sleep very cool since it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a standard memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting rather than glue which makes this a truly environmentally friendly mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available 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 boundary.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is very little motion transfer despite the fact that 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 class this one may be a good option if you sleep with a significant other or a pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their motion.
- Ideal for all sleeping positions
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided design extends the life of the mattress
- Great for people who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses yet would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
- More bounce which in turn causes some motion transfer
The Idle mattresses are designed to be used on a range of bases consisting of box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds or perhaps the carpet.
