Idle has created a mattress with an unique design.Idle Mattress With Box Spring
Unlike other flippable 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 a model that used to be common for many traditional innerspring mattresses until the costs got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you might flip and opted for the less expensive to manufacture one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2-sided flippable mattress is back.
This distinct design allows you to turn the Idle over regularly to extend the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or imprints from occurring. This is especially beneficial when it comes to couples where one partner is bigger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Mattress With Box Spring
All Idle mattresses are handmade in Colorado Springs, CO since 2017.
You can try out an Idle mattress risk free in your house for a full 18 months to decide if Idle is right for you. If at anytime within the 18 month trial you decide Idle is not the best mattress for you, they will coordinate a return with you 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?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which indicates that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and include handgrips for ease in moving around the mattresses.
They are also ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (people that rotate between positions during the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress provides them some relief from pain since the pocketed coils will support your spine while the foam or latex will give cushioning support to pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the fabrics that they are made with are known for their cooling properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which gives it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is developed with aerated foam which provides cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to remain cooler than memory foam and gives better pressure relief for places like back and hips.
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.

Cover— The natural organic cotton cover has a 1″ layer of natural wool woven into it to supply more comfort and additional softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— 100% Natural Dunlop Latex or Talalay layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress as well as providing it more firmness than ordinary memory foam. The latex is naturally hypoallergenic and has anti-microbial properties, 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 firmness from edge to edge.

1 ″ Top— described above.
The Latex Hybrid is made with 100% organic cotton, wool and natural latex which are fabrics that are recognized for their cooling qualities.Idle Mattress With Box Spring
Latex tends to sleep very cool because it is aerated and won’t trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to hold the layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is an environmentally friendly method.
How firm is the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses are available in 2 firmness options: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the option of picking 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 offer the best support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Although there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a very small amount of motion transfer. The individually wrapped coils isolate movement far better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box category this one may be an excellent alternative if you sleep with a spouse or a family pet so your sleep will not be affected by their motion.
- Suitable for all sleeping positions
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided design extends the life of the mattress
