Idle Sleep 12 Inch Dual Firmness Mattress

Idle Sleep Dual Firmness Mattress

There are a few reasons why it might be a bad idea to buy an Idle Sleep mattress:

  • Idle Sleep is no longer in business. This means that if you have any problems with your mattress, it may be difficult to get customer support or a replacement.
  • The Idle Sleep mattress has mixed reviews. Some people love it, while others find it to be too firm or uncomfortable. It’s important to read reviews carefully before you buy any mattress, but especially one from a company that is no longer in business.
  • The Idle Sleep mattress is not ideal for all sleeping positions. Side sleepers and lightweight sleepers may find it too firm, while stomach sleepers may find it too soft.
  • The Idle Sleep mattress is not flippable. This means that you can’t flip it over to extend its lifespan.

Overall, it’s best to avoid buying an Idle Sleep mattress unless you’re sure that it’s the right mattress for you and you’re comfortable with the risk of buying from a company that is no longer in business.

Here are some additional things to consider when choosing a mattress:

  • Your sleeping position. Side sleepers need a softer mattress to cradle their shoulders and hips, while back sleepers need a mattress that provides support for their lumbar spine. Stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress to keep their spine aligned.
  • Your weight. Heavier sleepers need a firmer mattress to support their weight, while lighter sleepers may prefer a softer mattress.
  • Your budget. Mattresses can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. It’s important to set a budget before you start shopping so that you don’t overspend.

Once you’ve considered all of these factors, you can start shopping for a mattress. It’s important to try out different mattresses in person before you buy one. This will help you to find a mattress that is comfortable and supportive for you.

Idle Sleep is a new online mattress brand that has multiple mattress models that have one thing in common, they can all be flipped. This means you can sleep on either side. This is a construction that harkens back many decades when you could maximize the lifespan on your mattress by wearing each side evenly. This was true then and is true now with Idle Sleep.

Their Dual Firmness mattress is a little different in that each side is a different firmness. This gives you the option of sleeping on a firm or soft side. A queen size currently retails for $1,199

Overview of the Idle Sleep Dual Firmness Mattress

The Idle Sleep line of mattresses come with a 120 night trial. That means you can try out the mattress in your house for 120 days and if you don’t like it, you can return it for a full refund. There’s no need to ship it back either, Idle will work with you to take care of the return.

All Idle Sleep mattresses are made in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty.

Here’s a quick overview of the mattress. In the video, I show you how easy it is to flip as it comes with handles on each side that are stitched into the mattress.

My Idle Sleep Findings

Below is a photo of my 14 lb. bowling ball on the soft side of the Idle Sleep Mattress. On a firmness scale I would say this is a medium firm feel.

Here’s a photo of the firm side of the mattress which is more of a true firm feel.

There isn’t much motion transfer with this mattress since it is an all foam mattress. Below is a video illustrating motion transfer on the soft side. The soft side absorbs more motion than the firm side.


Here’s a video of the firm side of the mattress. There isn’t that much difference between the two but I noticed the soft side absorbed a little more motion.


My Idle Sleep Recommendation

Dual firmness mattresses are excellent guest bedroom mattresses because they give you two choices in one. But this mattress is also great for your bedroom every night. I prefer the softer side as I generally like a softer mattress but people on the lookout for a firm mattress will appreciate the firm side of the Idles Sleep.

Buy this mattress if you aren’t quite sure what firmness is best for you or if you want a great guest bedroom mattress or a mattress for your new Airbnb!
