The distinct style of the Idle Sleep mattress will appeal to a lot of people.Idle Sleep Plush
They have made a mattress with the very SAME firmness on both sides which really helps this mattress stand out from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brands that have a different firmness option on each side.
This was an idea that used to be common for many standard innerspring mattresses until the expenses got expensive to produce them. Then mattress brands stopped selling the ones you could flip and opted for the more affordable to produce one-sided variations.
In a daring move, Idle Sleep has brought back the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This distinct design allows you to flip the Idle over periodically to lengthen the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or imprints from occurring. This is especially useful in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress OverviewIdle Sleep Plush
All Idle mattresses are hand-made in Colorado Springs, CO since 2017.
Idle has an extremely generous sleep trial period of 18 months which is around 540 days. If at anytime within that trial duration you decide Idle is not the ideal 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 Constructed?
Both the Idle Hybrid and the Idle Latex Hybrid are made with Certipur certified foams which means that they contain no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and are made with carry handles for ease in handling the mattresses.
They are also well-suited for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (individuals that turn between positions during the night.)
The hybrid mattresses are also preferred for people with back pain because the coils will give your spinal column support while the foam or latex will cushion your pressure points.
Both are constructed of fabrics that are produced to help you sleep cool and get a good nights rest.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the top layer which offers it softness.
1 ″ Response Foam— This layer is developed with aerated foam which offers cooling and bounce.
2 ″ Cooling Buoyancy Foam— Made without visco elastic chemicals to remain cooler than memory foam and offers 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.

Cover— The natural organic cotton cover actually has a 1-inch layer of natural wool woven into it to supply comfort and added softness.
3 ″ Gel Buoyancy Foam— Talalay or 100% Natural Dunlop Latex layers supplies cooling and bounce to the mattress in addition to providing it more support 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 coils that function as the core support of the mattress.
They go all the way to the edge of the mattress for maximum support from edge to edge.

1 ″ Top— explained above.
This mattress is made with 100% natural cotton, wool and natural latex which are materials that are recognized for their cooling qualities.Idle Sleep Plush
Latex tends to sleep really cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the in the same way a traditional 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 can be found in 2 firmness possibilities: 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 individuals will find 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 support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Even though there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a minimum amount of motion transfer. The individually wrapped coils isolate movement far better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the bed-in-a-box classification this one might be an excellent option if you sleep with a spouse or a pet so your sleep won’t be impacted by their motion.
- Ideal for all sleeping types
- Mattresses sleep cool
- 2-sided style extends the life of the mattress
- Great for individuals who like the feel of conventional innerspring mattresses but would also want the body contouring feel of memory foam
- More bounce which in turn causes some movement transfer
The Idle mattresses are developed to be utilized on a range of bases including box springs/foundations, adjustable bases, slats, platform beds and even the floor surface.
