Idle has actually created a mattress with a distinct style.Idle Sleep Mattresses
They have made a mattress with the SAME firmness on both sides which really makes this mattress stick out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brands that have a different firmness choice on each side.
This was a concept that used to be common for lots of conventional innerspring mattresses up until the costs got too high to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you could flip and went with the cheaper to make one-sided versions.
In a novel move, Idle has revived the flippable dual sided mattress.
This special design enables you to flip the Idle over periodically to lengthen the life of the mattress and avoid any drooping or imprints from taking place. This is especially useful in the case of couples where one partner is bigger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Sleep Mattresses
All Idle mattresses are hand-made in Colorado Springs, CO ever since 2017.
Idle has an extremely generous sleep trial period of 18 months which is about 540 days. If at anytime within that trial period you choose Idle is not the best mattress for you, they will coordinate a return with you or donation and refund 100% of your purchase cost. Idle’s trial is the longest in the market– about 540 nights!
How is the Idle Hybrid Constructed?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
Idle mattresses are 14″ tall and designed with carry handles attached to the sides which make it easier to turn them.
They are also excellent for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combo sleepers (individuals that turn between positions during the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress provides them some relief from pain because the springs will support your spine while the foam or latex will give cushioning support for pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the materials that they are made with are known for their cooling qualities.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which provides it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is created with aerated foam which supplies cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to stay cooler than memory foam and provides much better pressure relief for places like hips and back.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer acts 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 act as the core support of the mattress.

This mattress is made with 100% organic cotton, wool and natural latex which are materials that are known for their cooling qualities.Idle Sleep Mattresses
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool because it is aerated and will not trap heat the in the same way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
Instead of using glue to hold the layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a natural method.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses can be found in 2 firmness selections: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice 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.
Larger individuals will discover the Luxury Firm more supportive.
This is a measure of how supportive the bed is around its border.
The coils on the Idle Sleep mattresses go right to the edge of the mattresses to offer the very best edge support whether you are sitting on the edge or sleeping near it.
There is not much movement transfer although these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately enclosed coils isolate motion better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box class this one might be a great option if you sleep with a significant other or an animal so your sleep will not be impacted by their motion.
