You will like the IDLE Latex Hybrid Mattress if you:

  • Seeking an All Natural Option
  • Like more of a sleeping on the mattress than sinking way in.  Latex is a little springier and very supportive.
  • Are seeking a hybrid with a choice of firmness level
  • Are looking for a 2-sided/flappable mattress which can help extend the life of the mattress.
  • Are seeking a mattress that does not trap much heat-latex is very good I this area
  • Want a choice of mattress type and firmness level
  • Looking to get a mattress that can last longer since it can be spun and flipped
  • Value a Lifetime Warranty – I wouldn’t expect any mattress to last an entire lifetime but if they are warrantying it its better than a 10-15 year warranty for sure.
  • Need a TON of time to decide if its right for you.  Their trial is crazy 18 months

You might not like IDLE Latex Hybrid Mattress if you:

  • Want a very soft mattress.  They offer medium and luxury firm models.  But latex tends tohave a bit of a firmer, springier feel than memory foam.
  • Require a thin mattress for any reason
  • With all of their options, it’s likely you can find something you may like
  • Want a true memory foam feel – latex has pressure relief like memory foam but its faster responding and a little less body hug, so if you like a lot of hug and more of the true sinking in memory foam feel you may not like it.

 IDLE SLEEP customer reviews 

Solid 5/5

I spent a little more time looking for a bed that would support myself and my boyfriend who is a little bigger. I didn’t want to pay a lot of money but I did need something that would last and support both of us. It has been a comfortable bed and is as strong as an ox.

Very Nice 5/5

I was pretty apprehensive to buy a mattress without trying it out first, but I did a lot of research and decided to take the plunge. I tried several different memory foam mattresses in stores and I’d say this one is superior to the others. The firmness level is just right: not too hard and not too soft. I sink in just enough to feel supported, but not so much that it’s difficult to move. I wake up less in the middle of the night and I’m not sore in the morning. I am very pleased with our purchase.

Next level bed 5/5

I ordered my Idle Sleep Hybrid medium firm bed about 5 weeks ago based on both the recommendation of an acquaintance and online reviews. I have been nothing short of elated at the quality of the bed and how well I sleep on it. It is plush and yet supportive and my girlfriend is staying over more often now which is an added bonus.

Great for my back

My Idle all foam bed has helped my back immensely and for a very reasonable price. Beds similar to this that I have found in stores are close to $1000 more. I was able to do my own research without being pressured to buy and ended up getting a really good deal on this bed.

IDLE Sleep Off Gassing

The first thing you will do when you get your Idle mattress is bring it to the room you will open it in.  You do not want to unroll it in another room.  Once you are ready to open it you can use the cutter some brands provide, if not use a scissors and be careful not to cut the fabric.

As it starts opening it will expand quickly and you will only notice a slight “new mattress smell”.  The Idle mattress is made in the USA so it is not roll packed very long, which helps with minimize off gassing.

This an all natural mattress so there is no off gassing.  But you will always have a “new” smell. Which dissipates.

IDLE Mattress Foundation

IDLE will work on any solid surface.  A wood foundation, boxspring, slats, the floor and will work on an adjustable base.

Essentially you just want to make sure whatever youre using the mattress on is flat.  An old boxspring a lot of times is still good but make sure its not bowed in the middle.

This will work on an adjustable base to a point but don’t expect to be sitting straight up and down.  Most people want to elevate the head some for reading or watching tv.  It will work well enough for that.

Firmness and Feel:

My Idle Sleep Mattress Review

I had a good experience on the IDLE Hybrid.  Being that I own a mattress store I am very familiar with 1 and 2 sided mattresses and we are a store that sells both where most large stores only sell 1 sided models.

In terms of feel, we tested the latex in medium.  It had a really good feel.  A lot of times I feel like latex is a but too firm.  It had good contouring while providing really good support.  This is an impressive mattress in terms of feel and build quality.

It is heavy!  So make sure you have 2 people to move and set it up.

The quality is very high and being able to spin and flip your mattress will extend the life of it.

Softness- Medium Firmness level: 5
Softness- Luxury Firm Firmness level: 5
1 Very Soft
5 Medium
10 Very Firm


This mattress slept very cool. Latex in general tends to sleep cooler than memory foam.  In medium I had good body conformance but not an engulfing feel.  SO much of your body is exposed to the air vs sinking way in and getting warmer.  The latex is also aerated which helps with airflow.

If you sleep hot latex is the way to go.  Even with infused memory foams that claim to be cooler, latex will be better for heat every time.

Adjustable Base Performance:

All of the IDLE Mattresses are tested to work on adjustable bases.  That is why they also offer one on their website.  In my experience I have found that mattresses with quilts can bunch up a little when adjusted all the way up but typically it will not be an issue or hurt the mattress.

“IDLE Sleep was developed by two industry experienced veterans with over 18 years in the mattress industry as sales reps & factory leads with designing many mattresses for the retail markets.”



Overall Summary

This IDLE Mattress and the regular hybrid were some of the nicest mattresses we have reviewed in a while.  Coming from a store owner who used to sell 1 and 2 sided mattresses I see the value in being 2 sided.  The latex hybrid is a tank, it is built very well and is all natural for those seeking that feature.

The feel was perfect for all positions.  If you are over 350lbs I would look at the firm version maybe or if you just know you like something firmer in general.  It has good pressure relief for a latex mattress while maintaining good support.
