You deserve great sleep. Really great sleep

In the short term, a lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information and could increase the chance of serious accidents and harm. In the long run, chronic sleep deprivation may result in a host of health problems including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even early mortality.

That is why choosing a excellent mattress is the first thing you must consider to improve your rest during the evening or even mitigate any sleeping problems you might have.

This cover is truly remarkable. It is noticeably cooler than a traditional mattress cover. You can literally feel the freshness when you touch it.

The Idle Latex Mattress

Beautyrest Black Firm Mattress Reviews
Idle Latex Mattress

About latex mattresses, Idle has two versions: the Idle Dunlop and the Idle Talalay. Both are Latex Mattresses made by hands, with 100% organic cotton and natural latex, to create the great firm feeling you expect from latex mattresses.

They have no adhesive or toxins and are hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial, and dust-mite resistant. These mattresses are high-quality but not necessarily affordable. If you want more affordable mattresses you may want to take into account the Idle or the Idle Gel Plush mattresses instead.

How Business Is This Mattress?

Like the Idle Hybrid mattress, there are two options of firmness in regards to Idle Latex Mattress: moderate and luxury firm.

You can select between all moderate, all luxury firm, or a mix of both (moderate in 1 side and luxury firm on the other side.)

If you are a combination sleeper (side, back and stomach), the medium hardness level is better suited. If you are a stomach sleeper or a heavier sleeper (300+ lbs.) , the luxury firm would be better suited.

Additionally, the type of latex used may also affect the firmness slightly. Dunlop latex will feel denser, while Talalay latex will feel airier and softer.

How Many Layers Does It Have?

Idle Latex Mattress Layers
Idle Latex Mattress Layers

1) Cover and Yarn Rosettes

The first layer is an all-natural organic cotton coating . This fabric is eco friendly, healthy and allows for airflow. This layer will keep things soft and comfortable on the surface.

2) 1″ Natural Wool

1″ of natural wool that is quilted into the cotton cover for extra comfort and softness. This also acts as a natural flame barrier.

3) 3″ Pure Latex

3″ of 100% pure GOLS accredited Dunlop or Talalay Latex. Both are naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial, so you will sleep better and breathe easier. It makes feel cooler than memory foam to some sleepers.

4) Coil Support

This layer provides the correct tension management at every part of the mattress

5) 6″ Quantum Edge-To-Edge Pocketed Coils

These coils provide lasting support to the spine and back and reduce motion transfer to limit the disturbance of motion from your partner, children, or your pet. The pocket coils are sandwiched between coil support layers which help manage the tension.

The like the Idle Hybrid, Dunlop and Talalay are just two sided and include handles for simple handling of the mattress. You can flip easily and as soon as you turn your mattress; you have the very same layers.

Pros and Cons of Idle Mattress

To outline, and for a quick reference, I have added a table with the pros and cons of Idle mattress


  • Bounce is one of the most plus of Idle mattress. If you are looking for some solid buoyant support, this mattress will be great
  • Multiple firmness options, and the two-side models will continue double, as you are able to flip them from time to time
  • Strong border support
  • Free shipping to contiguous U.S.
  • Very affordable. You can buy a Queen size beginning at only $749
  • You’ve got 18 months to trial and a lifetime guarantee with free returns


  • Motion transfer is a drawback of the Idle mattress, since results from the extreme bounce coming from the foam and the coils
  • Idle is exceptionally difficult to move

Your sleep will thank you!

about 24 hours ago

At first I was VERY hesitant of buying a mattress in this price point over the internet. I did more than 8 hours of research; reading reviews, watching YouTube videos, and weighing pros and cons of each mattress. I’m a very indecisive person when it comes to large purchases. Like every brand and produRead more about review stating Your sleep will thank you!ct on the market, everyone is a critic! People with love or hate something with people rarely being middle of the road.

I could not find any negative reviews on the Idle Sleep Hybrid. Surprisingly every review said it was life changing. I immediately told my girlfriend, “I bet the company only posts good reviews”. The overwhelming amount of bad reviews for other mattresses eventually broke me down and I decided to give the Idle Sleep a try. Their no-hassle, no worry guarantee policy eased my worries, so I figured...why not?!?!

The mattress shipped quickly and I was notified in a few days that it was on its way here. I saw the $1,200 draft from my bank account and I immediately started experiencing buyers remorse. The mattress arrived and it was well packaged.

Loving it!

My husband and I both waited anxiously after spending 2 weeks researching mattresses. Once it came having to wait the 24 hrs was so hard!

Very Nice Mattress - Very Pleased

about 24 hours ago

I recently purchased a Talalay Latex Hybrid mattress from Idle Sleep. Although the shipping was delayed a few days and I had to make several attempts to contact customer care about the missing memory foam pillows in my order, I am extremely happy I purchased the mattress from Idle Sleep. It is a very heavy mattress, so be prepared. But, once openeRead more about review stating Very Nice Mattress - Very Pleasedd, unrolled and placed on the foundation, it is a pleasure to lay down on it. It took a few days to wear in, but now, it is so comfortable. I have awakened too many days with a sore back, but no more... and I've only had the mattress for a month. I feel like I am getting a better nights sleep with so much less tossing and turning. I'm not saying this mattress will cure all that ails you, but it sure is helping my sore back!

I took some time to research the mattresses out there, read all the reviews I could find, and settled on the Idle Sleep Talalay Latex Hybrid. It's my first time buying a "mail order" mattress and, in my opinion, I found the best mattress out there. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because of the difficulty I had getting customer care to respond. Once you get them, they are very helpful though!

Well Constructed Mattress

This mattress is very comfortable and well constructed. I have only uses it a couple of nights, but so far my back pain is improving. I work 12 hour shifts on the frontlines of the epidemic and I really need a good rest right now. This mattress all seems like it will last a long time. I got the luxury firm and it is firm but not too firm or hard. Read more about review stating Well Constructed MattressLove it. Set up was simple as well.

I love this mattress!

I love our new Idle Hybrid mattress! We've had it about two and a half weeks now and I love the cushiony support. I feel like we're sleeping in a very nice hotel!! We can finally sleep on our backs without waking up with back pain. I spent every day for several weeks pouring over articles all over the Internet looking for a mattress. We wanted a mRead more about review stating I love this mattress!attress that was flippable because we knew from experience that it would wear better over time. After much research, we decided that we wanted to also try one that had the comfort of memory foam and support of coil springs. Originally the Idle mattress was out of our budget but after researching other options, we felt like it was worth the extra cost because it was exactly what we were looking for plus extra features like cooling foam and made in the USA. What I love most is that when my husband and I get in and out of bed, we don't feel the other one moving around due to the pocketed coil springs which don't transfer motion. However, for the times when we do want motion, it works very nicely and is super quiet. 🙂 We are very happy with our purchase!
