I was excited to try the mattress from Layla Sleep because it’s not just another bed-in-a-box at this point; it has some really distinguishing features, mainly the copper infusion and the flippable component.
Overall I really liked the Layla, and do recommend it, but I had some complaints as well (see how Layla compares HERE). With the influx of so many mattresses into the market, it was good to see Layla distinguish itself from a lot of its competitors.
Read my full Layla mattress review for my personal experience.
I’ve tried a few other flippable mattresses, and they all flip a little different. Layla is on the easier side of the spectrum, watch to see the process in the video below:
Since the mattress is flippable, it has two firmness/feels. See how the two firmnesses vary from each other in the video below (note: this video does not show the flip in between).
The soft side is probably a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (great for side-sleeping), and the firm side is probably an 8.5 out of 10 on the scale.
The Layla mattress has the following layers:
You can see the difference between the firm and soft side is just 2 inches of memory foam. The cover is also something to note, which sports a thermo-gel finish. This puts the gel as close to your body as possible to help with cooling.
What is copper infused?
Copper is actually infused in the memory foam. Copper infusion is popular in other items such as knee braces, socks, etc (near the joints), but this is the first time I’ve heard about it in a mattress. I’m not familiar with the science myself, but Layla Sleep claims it helps with joint pain, improving circulation, and general cooling (the mattress definitely slept cool for me).
Layla performs very well in the motion isolation test, making it a great mattress for couples. See my “test” in the video below:
I really liked the Layla in my two week sleep trial, and slept very well (I used the soft side). I can’t say I personally noticed any joint pain or better circulation, but I think there is some scientific literature available to back up some of these claims (I suggest you investigate for yourself if you’re on the fence).
Overall I think the Layla has a really unique offering (compare to other reviews), and if you’re intrigued by the copper or flippable capability, Layla is a no-brainer.
