Idle has actually produced a mattress with a distinct style.Idle Mattress XL Twin
They have actually made a mattress with the exact SAME firmness on both sides which really makes this mattress stand out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brand names that have a different firmness choice on each side.
This was a concept that used to be typical for many traditional innerspring mattresses until the expenses got expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped offering the ones you could flip and chose the less expensive to produce one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the dual sided flippable mattress is back.
This special design allows you to turn the Idle over regularly to prolong the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or indentations from taking place. This is especially useful when it comes to couples where one partner is bigger than the other.

How is the Idle Hybrid Mattress Constructed?
Idle has 2 models that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they consist of no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and incorporate handgrips for ease in flipping over the mattresses.
They are likewise ideal for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that turn between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also suggested for people with back pain because the coils will give your back 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 top layer which provides it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is created with aerated foam which offers cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and offers 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.

6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer has high quality steel pocketed innerspring springs that serve as the core support of the mattress.

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 XL Twin
Latex tends to sleep very cool because it is aerated and will not trap heat the way a traditional memory foam mattress does.
Rather than using glue to hold the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is an eco-friendly method.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness choices: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice of choosing 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.
Larger people will find the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how firm the bed is around its perimeter.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the best edge support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much movement transfer even though these mattresses do have some bounce. The individually enclosed coils isolate movement better than standard inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box category this one might be a great choice if you sleep with a significant other or a family pet so your sleep will not be disturbed by their movement.
