Bed Buddy Report | Verdict |
- As an innerspring mattress, the Layla does a poor job handling movement across the surface. A more costly price point
- Using strong coiled support, the Layla is crafted for heavy use. However, the foams in the comfort region are not considered to be long-lasting quality.
- Flippable design with two firmness options
- Close conforming for pain and pressure relief
- Good motion isolation
- Below-average price-point
- Free shipping in contiguous U.S.
- Non-prorated lifetime warranty
- Fair edge support
- Some potential for off-gassing
- Flipping the mattress takes some effort
- Mandatory two-week break-in period for sleep trial
Bed Buddy Report | Findings |
The Layla Mattress is a flippable memory foam bed that gives you two firmness options in one mattress.
My review of the Layla Mattress found the copper-infused memory foam in this dual-sided bed offers targeted pressure relief to the sensitive areas of the body. Typical pressure points in the shoulders and hips are gently cradled for all varieties of sleepers and positions. Meanwhile, the support system of the Layla is more than adequate. Using a higher density polyfoam, we expect this mattress to be durable and provide lasting support.
With two firmness options built in, you decide between a medium-soft side that has a softer, pressure-relieving feel, or a firm side, which offers greater support.
The copper-infused memory foam sleeps cooler than most memory foam beds, and alongside this bed’s versatility, I think it’s a great offering at a good price.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Layla Mattress?
Based on my customer feedback, the Layla Mattress has received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
As you can see, the Layla is a great choice for back sleepers of all weight categories, and performs quite well for those who sleep on their side. I am weary of recommending the soft side of the Layla to larger shoppers, since likely will lack the necessary support, but the firm side of the mattress should be great.
For more information on sleeping positions please see my guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.
Our testing process found the Layla should also be great for you if…
- You’re looking for an affordable soft mattress.
- You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed.
- You have sensitive pressure points that need to be lightly cushioned against. Especially, in your shoulders, hips, and lower back.
- You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you feel on the bed.
