Idle has created a mattress with a distinct style.Idle Sleep vs Nectar
Unlike other flippable 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 model that used to be common for lots of standard innerspring mattresses till 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 variations.
Thanks to Idle Sleep, the 2 sided flippable mattress is back.
This distinct style allows you to turn the Idle over occasionally to extend the life of the mattress and prevent any drooping or indentations from taking place. This is especially advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is much heavier than the other.

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 consist of no PBDE’s, TDCPP or ozone depleters.
They are both 14″ high, 2-sided and are made with carry handles for ease in handling the mattresses.
They are likewise well-suited for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that rotate between positions throughout the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress provides them some relief because the springs will support your back while the latex or foam will give cushioning support to pressure points.
You can sleep cool on these mattresses because the materials that they are made out of are known for their cooling properties.

The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made of organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fabrics and aid with air flow and cooling.Idle Sleep vs Nectar
Latex tends to sleep really cool since it is aerated and will not trap heat the in the same way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
The layers are held together with button tufting instead of glue making this a truly natural mattress.
What is the firmness of the Idle?
The Idle Sleep mattresses come in 2 firmness selections: Medium and Luxury Firm.
You have the choice of selecting 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 boundary.
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.
There is not much motion transfer although these mattresses do have some bounce. The separately wrapped coils isolate movement far better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box class this one may be an excellent choice if you sleep with a partner or a pet so your sleep will not be disturbed by their motion.
