The Layla mattress is not your average bed in a box. Two features of this mattress set it apart from many of its competitors. The fact that it is two sided and also that it utilizes cooper infused memory foam. The copper infused memory foam allows for better support and a cooler surface. It also is great for its antimicrobial properties as well as potential naturally healing positive ions. This mattress not only has two sides but each side is a different firmness. If you prefer a softer feel you can use one side. And if firmer is for you, no problem, just flip it over.
Layla Mattress – Recent Updates:
At the start of 2019 Layla revamped their look and few key aspects of their mattress design. Not only making for a more eye catching brand and look, but also functional features that just make sense. The biggest difference in this update is the functionality of the cover. Previously it wasn’t as easy as just flipping the mattress over. The cover needed to be removed, the mattress could then be flipped and the cover put back on. Making it a little cumbersome and maybe a bit of a hassle to switch up the sides. Now, both sides are easily labeled to make it not only efficient but easy to recognize which is which too.
With this relaunch of the Layla you might expect other changes too, but why change a good thing? The build of the mattress, besides the cover, is exactly the same. Giving you the same great comfort and the same tried and true materials. Making the Layla as great as it ever was and still unbelievably affordable.
Layla Mattress- Brief Overview:
When you order your Layla it is kind of like getting two beds in one. This 10″ four layer mattress is designed with two ideal comforts that will appeal to many sleepers. One side is a side sleepers delight with an ideal medium-soft feel while the other side is great for stomach and back sleepers with a firmer feel. This gives you the option to try out two options and decide what works best.
Regardless of which comfort you opt for the core and support provide you with great alignment and the foundation you need for long term quality sleep. And the top layers of copper infused memory foam are great for necessary pressure relief. As well as evenly distribute weight, pull heat away from the body for a more temperature neutral surface and even has a natural antibacterial property to it. This mattress also comes in at a great price point that won’t break the bank.
It even comes with free shipping and returns, a four month trial period and a lifetime warranty. This USA made mattress is easily delivered right to your door for convenience and minimal wait time. If you are ready for an ideal memory foam feel with the benefits of copper it’s time to learn more about Layla.
Below we have our Layla mattress review. Included is our comprehensive video review as well as our detailed written review. We will go through how it performs for off gassing, comfort, motion transfer, sleeping cool, edge support, value, material, trial and warranty.
Delivery & Off Gassing:
With the purchase of your Layla, delivery is included. Your new mattress will be compactly packed and shipped in a box and show up right at your door. Included with your mattress is a welcome kit, including a few thoughtful tokens from Layla. As well as two free pillows to add to your sleeping experience.
Once your new bed arrives you will need to get it set up. Getting it to where it needs to go may be the hardest part of the process. Though the box is compact for a mattress it may still take two people to get it to your bedroom. Once there, shimmy it out of the box and carefully unwrap and cut the plastic away. It may take some time to fully expand and at least a good 24 to 48 hours before the foams are true to feel.
During this time you may notice a few odors escape while unwarping the plastic too. The mattress itself may have a few “new” mattress smells and the plastic itself may have a bit of off gassing. It should dissipate fairly quickly. However, if you are more sensitive leaving the room initially might be a good idea. Or also open a window to help air out the room too. This USA mattress uses safe and non-hazardous materials, so even if there is a bit of smell it is nothing noxious.
Layla Mattress – Comfort:
The beauty of the Layla mattress is the fact that it is two sided and easily flippable. This copper infused memory foam mattress offers you two ideal feels in one bed. Each side having a different comfort level making this mattress appeal to all sleepers. One side is soft and the other is firm. With both sides you get the amazing advantages copper infusion adds. The natural properties pull heat away from the body while keeping the mattress cleaner with anti-bacterial properties too. Even adding potential healing properties linked to copper for rejuvenation and recuperation.
The soft side is more of a medium-soft feel. Being just soft enough to really adapt to the curves of your body. It provides a great combination of support but with more cushion and sink. The memory foam conforms around you more and really allows for great pressure relief. The soft would work great for back and side sleepers. It is also going to be best for people who have a smaller frame or like a supportive feel but with extra softness.
The firm side is going to be more of a medium-firm feel. It will appeal to people who like to sink in less and prefer to have more support. The memory foam will still contour to your body but will keep you more “on” the bed instead of “in” the bed. Back sleepers who like a firmer feel will prefer this side. As well as anyone who prefers to sleep on their stomachs. The firm side will also be great for a sleeper who is heavier too.
When looking at a firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 is the firmest, each side of the Layla will come in on either end of the spectrum. Th soft side will be right around a 3.5 to 4. While the firm side will be around a 6.5 to 7. Neither side being at complete opposite ends, but an ideal compromise for each preferred firmness level.
Our Layla Comfort Experience:
We enjoyed trying out both sides of this true memory foam feeling mattress. There is definitely a difference between the softer side to the firmer side and both worked fine for back sleeping. However, the softer side we definitely preferred for side sleeping. While the firmer side was much better for stomach sleeping. If you change sleeping positions, you may want the firmer side. Regardless, you do have the choice.
We liked the feel of the pressure relieving memory foam and slept mostly on the softer side. It had plenty of support but was a more “in the bed” than “on the bed” feel. While the firmer side was more “on the bed”. Both sides have plenty of support and even though the feel changes your body can easily adapt because of the solid core. The copper infusion adds a nice touch and keeps the mattress cooler to the touch. As well as adds a bonus by keeping it feeling cleaner.
Layla Mattress – Motion Transfer:
One of the best things about an all foam bed is the nearly non-existent amount of motion transfer. This memory foam mattress does exactly that. The Layla has a solid, dense core made of foam that gives you support but doesn’t produce any vibrations. While the comfort foams sandwiched on either side of it quickly absorb and isolate any motion. Making partner disturbance a thing you’ll only remember from your previous mattress. This makes the Layla an ideal option for anyone who shares a mattress with a partner or even a pet. It also is great for couples on different sleep schedules or light sleepers that easily are woken.
To make the motion transfer even more obsolete using the softer side of the mattress will give you the absolute least amount of vibration. While the firm side has a bit less softness and slightly more resistance, it doesn’t necessarily add to motion transfer but doesn’t absorb as quickly. The Layla in general will be a great mattress choice for anyone looking for a mattress with great motion isolation.
Layla Mattress – Sleeping Cool:
With any an all foam mattress you will have more heat retention than a hybrid counterpart. However, the innovative use of copper infusion and well thought out design of the Layla makes it a better option for warmer sleepers. Copper’s natural conductivity helps pull heat away from the body. This amazing metal acts as a shield from overheating and allows more conforming memory foam to hold less heat. Making it great for the both sides of the Layla sleeping more temperature neutral.
This helps you sleep cooler and still have the feel of a true memory foam. Copper is also naturally anti-microbial. So even if you do warm up and sweat your mattress will still be clean. Another key point when it comes this best rated two sided mattress is the fact that you have a firmer and softer side that effect sleeping cool. When you sleep on the firm side you sink in less. Making less of your body touch the mattress and less heat to be retained. Making the firmer side more ideal than the soft for anyone who sleeps warmer.
However, the softer side offers a unique transition foam under the 3″ of memory foam. This layer is convoluted, meaning it is shaped with a “hill and valley” type design that has pockets for air to flow and help alleviate more heat. Helping keep the softer seed a little cooler when you wouldn’t necessarily expect it. This gives all aspects of the carefully designed Layla bed another pro when it comes to sleeping cool.
Layla Mattress – Edge Support:
When buying a new mattress you want to make sure that you can fully use the mattress. Allowing you not only to break it in evenly but also sleep comfortably regardless of being in the middle or right up to the edge. This is where the edge support of the mattress can help or hurt make your sleeping surface fully usable. With the Layla you will get a consistent feel from edge to edge. Very little variation in feel takes place from the center to the perimeter edge. Especially when you are sleeping and your weight is evenly distributed.
Again the comfort side you opt for will make a slight difference in the edge support too. The firmer side does offer slightly better edge support due to the denser feeling foams on top. While the softer side will naturally dip a bit more. With the Layla neither side is really ideal for long term sitting though. With most foam mattresses the edges don’t do as well when all your weight is compressed in one spot. Especially on the edge where the support gets easily broken down. Compared to most other all foam or memory foam mattresses the Layla does about as expected and provides a consistent fully usable sleeping surface. Which is the most important aspect of edge support.
Layla Mattress – Value:
To reiterate, the Layla is basically like getting two mattresses in one. Making the already affordable price an even better deal. The price of a queen size mattress is only $899. And that isn’t even including their latest coupon that makes it even more affordable. To get an extra $100 OFF and 2 FREE pillows just click on the image to the right!
Included in the price of the Layla is free shipping and returns. As well as a 120 night sleep trial period and a rarely seen lifetime warranty. This true memory foam mattress allows you two levels of comfort, both infused with the benefits of copper. All while giving you proper and necessary support too. The benefits of this mattress are ample while the price is not, making it a great value.
Materials & Construction:
The Layla is a 10″ all foam mattress with 4 layers of premium and ideal feeling foams. Together they make a two sided, flippable mattress that gives you a soft and firm bed in one. The construction of this mattress is like a sandwich in a sense. The core support of the bed is in the center and on either side are comfort foams to provide the desired comfort or firmness.
The center, or core, of the mattress is 4.5″ of Base Foam. Providing great motion isolation and ideal support to respond to your bodies needs regardless of which side you’re sleeping on. The firm side has 1″ of Copper Infused Memory Foam directly over the core foam. This combination makes for a feel that contours just enough while alleviating pressure. But doesn’t let you sink in too much.
The softer side is a combination of 3″ of Copper Infused Memory Foam along with 2″ of Convoluted Foam to create plenty of sink and a noticeably different feel from the firm side. The hills and valleys of the convoluted foam help dissipate heat while the copper infusion helps pull heat away. Creating a soft side that lets you sink in plenty and really conform to your shoulders and hips while side sleeping.
All of this is covered in breathable and brand new easily marked cover. This new feature makes switching up the feel even easier as well as readily indicates which side is soft and firm. Making the Layla and great mattress for anyone who might not be sure what feel they prefer.
Trial Period & Warranty:
The Layla mattress has a 120 night sleep trial period. This is a are bit longer than many other online mattress companies offer. This should offer you plenty of time to try the mattress and decide if it’s for you. If for some reason it doesn’t work out the company will easily accommodate returns.
The Layla has a limited lifetime warranty which goes above and beyond what the standard warranty for the mattress industry is. This warranty shows that Layla really backs their product. This provides consumers with the confidence that this is a mattress that the company will stand behind.
