Idle has developed a mattress with a special design.Talalay Latex Hybrid Mattress
They have made a mattress with the very SAME firmness on both sides which really helps this mattress stand apart from other 2-sided bed-in-the-box brand names that have a different firmness option on each side.
This was a concept that used to be common for numerous traditional innerspring mattresses up until the costs got too expensive to produce them. Then mattress companies stopped selling the ones you might turn and went with the less expensive to manufacture one-sided versions.
In a bold move, Idle Sleep has revived the flippable 2-sided mattress.
This special style allows you to flip the Idle over periodically to extend the life of the mattress and prevent any sagging or indentations from happening. This is particularly advantageous in the case of couples where one partner is larger than the other.

Idle Hybrid Mattress SummaryTalalay Latex Hybrid Mattress
Hand-made in the USA, Idle Sleep has been making mattresses since 2017.
Idle has a very generous sleep trial duration of 18 months which is about 540 days. If at anytime within that trial duration you decide Idle is not the best 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?
Idle has two designs that are made with Certipur certified foams which guarantees that they contain no PBDE’s, ozone depleters or TDCPP.
They are both 14″ tall, 2-sided and incorporate carry handles for ease in turning over the mattresses.
They are also excellent for all sleepers: side, stomach, back and combination sleepers (people that rotate between positions during the night.)
People with back pain may find that a hybrid mattress gives them some relief because the springs will support your back while the latex or foam will provide 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 properties.
1 ″ Quilted Foam Cover— Contouring foam is woven into the upper layer which offers 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 gives better pressure relief for areas like back and hips.
6 ″ Pocketed Coils— This layer serves 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 coils that serve as the core support of the mattress.

The cover of the Idle latex hybrid is made from organic cotton and wool which are both breathable fibers and assist with airflow and cooling.Talalay Latex Hybrid Mattress
Latex tends to sleep extremely cool due to the fact that it is aerated and won’t trap heat the in the same way a conventional memory foam mattress does.
Rather than using glue to hold the mattress layers together, Idle Sleep uses button tufting which is a green method.
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 picking out 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 discover 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 offer the very best support whether you are resting on the edge or sleeping near it.
Despite the fact that there is some bounce with the Idle, there is a very small quantity of motion transfer. The separately wrapped coils isolate motion far better than traditional inner springs. Compared to other hybrids in the mattress-in-a-box classification this one might be an excellent choice if you sleep with a significant other or a family pet so your sleep won’t be affected by their movement.
