Tomorrow Sleep and Layla both sell mattresses directly online. Layla is a flippable foam mattress, while Tomorrow Sleep incorporates springs. Here’s how the mattresses compare, so you can find the best option for you.
- Both offer two firmness options and have similar thickness. (Tomorrow Sleep is 10 inches, Layla is 10.5 inches)
- They are sold at similar prices. ($550-1,150 for Tomorrow Sleep, $499-$999 for Layla)
- Both have free shipping, generous sleep trials, and great customer service.
- Layla is all foam while Tomorrow Sleep incorporates coils in the support layer.
- Tomorrow Sleep has a more responsive sleeping surface that also has more bounce.
- Layla uses copper in its memory foam mattress. The company says the metal absorbs heat to keep sleepers cool throughout the night.
- Tomorrow Sleep sells a Medium Firm and Medium Soft mattress.
- Layla is flippable, with a softer side and a firmer side.

Tomorrow Sleep Construction
- Tomorrow Sleep sells Medium Soft and Medium Firm versions of its mattress, and the versions have similar construction. Differences can be found, however, in the thicknesses of certain layers.
- The cover is made of polyester and nylon.
- The top layer is 1 inch of memory foam with phase change material.
- The second is layer is gel foam, which provides comfort and bounce beneath the top layer. This layer is thicker in the Medium Soft option.
- The Medium Firm option has an additional layer of “dynamic response foam” under the gel foam layer. This foam feels similar to memory foam.
- The 6-inch support layer is similar in both firmness levels, and consists of individually pocketed coils. The Medium Firm option uses thicker coils.
- A foam side rail system reinforces edge support.
- At the base of the mattress is 1 inch of stabilizing foam that the support coils can rest on.
- This breakdown reflects recent changes in Layla’s construction.
- A thermo-gel finish cover keeps cooling gel close to your body.
- The top, softer layer is made up of 3 inches of copper-infused memory foam.
- Below that is a new 2 inch layer of convoluted air flow foam, basically a texturized foam that is meant to allow air flow.
- The base layer is 4.5 inches of 2 lb density foam, which is thinner than it was previously.
- The alternative comfort layer on the other side is one inch of copper-infused memory foam.
- Both mattresses are durable, but Tomorrow Sleep probably has an edge because it uses coils instead of foam in the support layer.
- Both are constructed to ensure neutral temperature.
- Both use memory foam or material that feels like memory foam.
- Because Layla is flippable, you get more options by ordering one mattress.
- Layla uses copper-infused foam, which can potentially bring sleepers certain health benefits.
- Tomorrow Sleep has a side rail support system to reinforce edge support.
Watch the videos below to get a sense of how the mattresses respond to pressure. Note that the Tomorrow Sleep video is for the Medium Firm version, so expect the soft version to be softer and have more give. Layla is springier than Tomorrow Sleep. The firm side of Layla is definitely firmer than the firm option from Tomorrow Sleep, and Layla’s softer side is as firm or firmer.
Motion Transfer Differences
The videos below show off the differences in motion isolation. Both prevent motion from transferring, but Tomorrow Sleep absorbs movement especially well.
Pick Tomorrow Sleep If:
You want something softer– Tomorrow Sleep’s firmer option is softer than Layla’s firm side, and maybe even softer than its soft side.
You are heavier– Springs are more supportive, so if you’re heavier, you’ll probably want a mattress with springs.
Pick Layla If:
You like firm mattresses– Layla is a firmer mattress than both options from Tomorrow Sleep.
You like the incorporation of copper– Copper isn’t supposed to just help with coolness, but some studies show it also helps with circulation and joint pain. I’m not an expert, so I recommend reading up on your own, but if this appeals to you Layla may be your best option.
These companies both give buyers multiple options, but there’s not a lot of overlap in the types of comfort these options offer. I hope this post has helped you better understand which brand will work better for you.
