Idle has produced a mattress with a distinct design.Idle Sleep Gel Memory Foam Pillow
Unlike other 2-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 numerous standard innerspring mattresses till the expenses got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could turn and went with the more affordable to produce one-sided versions.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the dual sided flippable mattress is back.
This special design enables you to flip the Idle over periodically to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid any sagging or indentations from occurring. This is specifically advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses come in 2 firmness options: 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 find 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 supply the best support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.

Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box category this one might be a good alternative if you sleep with a partner or a family pet so your sleep won’t be impacted by their motion.
