What Type of Mattress is the IDLE?

These layers include perfect cushioning, as well as buoyancy foam, coil systems, and quilting foaming for comfort.

In addition to this, it comes with two sides which can increase the mattress’ lifespan considerably, making the IDLE Sleep mattress a good investment.

How Many Layers Does it Have?

The IDLE sleep mattress is made up of 8 layers that work together to offer you a comfortable sleep all night without putting any pressure on your body parts.

Its construction includes the following levels:

  1. The IDLE Sleep 14'' hybrid mattress sectionThermocool Upper Fabric: This is a specialized technology that helps to regulate your body temperature while you are sleeping. It adjusts according to the temperature of your body and keeps you warm in winters and cooler in hot summers.
  2. Quilting Foam: The next layer is 1 inch with 1.5 lbs density. This layer is responsible for additional softness.
  3.  Airflow Foam: This layer not only offers a cooler sleep surface but also adds an extra bounce. It is breathable and keeps you cool during the night.
  4. Buoyancy Foam: This layer keeps your body in a comfortable and supportive position so that your back and shoulders are perfectly aligned and not pressurized. In addition to this, it allows airflow through its unique microscopic shock-absorbing air bubbles.
  5. Quantum Coils: this section, not only provides core support but also saves you from rolling out of bed as it spans from edge to edge.  This core layer is sturdy and thus, maintains the whole structure of the mattress.
  6. The bottom three layers are exactly like the top 3 as this mattress is designed to be flipped for increased lifespan.

The Medium and Luxury Firm versions differ in the foams’ densities.

How are Motion Transfer and Sinkage?

The cover is made with ThermoCool fabric and allows good airflow.


The top layer of the mattress is a latex-like foam that is perforated to allow great airflow.

Then, the IDLE Buoyancy foam was also developed without heat trapping chemicals like the traditional memory foam.

The overall rating of the IDLE Hybrid for heat is very good.

Does it Have any Smell?

While most bed-in-a-box mattresses have a reasonable degree of off-gassing from being compressed and packaged in plastic for shipping, the IDLE mattress differs from most in this context.

CertiPUR-US logoThe foam and materials used in the construction of the mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, which implies that the mattress is made without ozone depleters, lead, mercury, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and PBDE flame retardants.

There may be a slight new mattress smell, but there is no strong chemical odor and it dissipates within a few hours.

Also, for content, durability, and emissions, the mattress is analyzed by independent and accredited testing laboratories.

Additionally, IDLE mattresses are made to order in the USA. They are also allowed to breathe in the factory before being rolled and since they are made to order they are not roll packed very long like some mattress brands.

Does it Require a Foundation?

The IDLE Hybid mattress works best when set up on any firm, flat (and dry) surface.

It is compatible with any foundation, coiled box spring, wooden slats, adjustable bed, and even the floor.

In addition to this, you can use your existing foundation as long as it is not bowed or damaged.

What type of Cover does it have?

The mattress comes with a ThermoCool Fabric, which works with the body’s natural thermal capabilities.

Aesthetically, the cover of the IDLE mattress is appealing and attractive and features handles to make it easier to spin and flip.

What is the Best Way to Care for the IDLE Mattress?

It is suggested that you turn and rotate your IDLE mattress every three months and to flip it every 6 months in order to maintain its overall structure and also prevent excessive sagging.

The mattress has been designed with this flipping capability with the  purpose of extending its lifespan.

For any stains or spills, you can simply opt for the spot cleaning method.

It is also suggested to protect your mattress with a waterproof mattress protector, which is always a great first line of defense.

What about Durability?

One of the most common issues sleepers have which causes them to replace their bed is lack of durability.

With time, most beds begin to sag, often leading to irritable and disrupted sleep.

However, the IDLE mattress is built from the highest quality materials which are specially designed to keep the mattress durable and in shape, and also offer several years of support and comfort.

One of IDLE’s main benefits over the other online brands is that it is 2-sided. You can wear the foams more evenly to help extend the life of the mattress.

The mattress is 100% built in the US and also backed by a Lifetime complete warranty.

Size and Shipping

Your IDLE mattress ships from the company’s warehouse, and is delivered to your door totally hassle free.

It is quite easy and quick to set up your new mattress: all you need to do is place the mattress in the room, remove it from the box and place it on the surface you intend to use it on.

Than, remove its outer plastic, unroll the mattress and finally remove the inner plastic wrap.

The mattress will slowly begin to expand to its full size and is generally ready to sleep on within 20 minutes.

If you are in a cold climate it can take a bit longer to expand.

120 Night Risk-Free Sleep Trial and Guarantee

IDLE offers a 120-night risk-free sleep trial, giving consumers ample time to try out and experience the new mattress at the comfort of their home.

The company suggests you allow approximately 4 weeks to adjust to the new mattress and achieve its full potential comfort.

However if, after the first 30 days, you are not completely happy and satisfied with your purchase, you can simply return the mattress for a full refund and no shipping charges.

If you do determine that the IDLE mattress is not for you, simply email customer service, and the company will make arrangements for your mattress return.

Once your return is received or donated and thoroughly inspected, the company will send you an email to notify you that it has received your returned mattress.

The company will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund, and if you are approved, then your refund will be processed within 10 to 15 business days.

IDLE has experienced a very low return rate because of the quality and feel of their mattresses are well above average.

How is IDLE’s Warranty

The IDLE mattress comes with a Lifetime limited warranty which extends to the original purchaser of the mattress only (not transferable).

The warranty covers any defects in material and workmanship for the lifetime period from the time your mattress is purchased.

A claim can be made only if the mattress was used as intended on a suitable, clean surface.

IMPORTANT: You need to retain a copy of your receipt as proof of purchase to make any claim.

How much does the IDLE Mattress Cost?

The IDLE mattress is economically priced for the quality of materials used in its construction, and the result is a high quality bed at a fair price.

With our discount code PILLOWS for $275 off, the company’s prices get competitive with other popular bed-in-a-box beds, but an even better deal than most since it is 2-sided:

IDLE Mattress Review- Our Verdict

Overall, we think this mattress offers good value, especially over the long term.

In fact, its 2-sided feature translates in a longer lasting product, as the foams on each side can get a their rest at every flip, leaving the constant work to the sturdy coils.

The thoughtful design plus the 120-night risk-free trial and lifetime warranty, bring us to the conclusion that the price of just $1,274 (with our coupon PILLOWS) for Queen is highly justified.
