Layla Mattress Review
(Medium or Firm)
The Layla mattress has a few unique features that stand out and put it as one of the best memory foam mattresses online.
First, it has the copper-infused memory foam for extra cooling and pressure relief.
Second, it is two mattresses in one, the double-sided feature allows you to choose between firm or soft depending on your preference.
Third, the mattress has a good price point compared to other similar memory foam mattresses.
While shopping at the Layla sleep website you can purchase a few other bedroom items like pillows, box spring, topper, weighted blanket, and sheets for extra convenience.
Read below for a full review of the Layla mattress.
What Is The Layla Mattress Constructions?
The Layla mattress has four layers of foam plus the cover. Here are the mattress layers:
Polyester Blend Cover
This removable cover is made with polyester blend and infused with gel to make for a cool and comfortable surface to sleep on. You can wash the cover but to enjoy the mattress for a long time it is recommended to get a mattress protector and wash the protector regularly. If the cover needed to be replaced after a while you can order one through Layla’s website.
Soft Comfort Layer
The soft comfort layer is made up of 3” of copper infused memory foam, this layer is excellent for side sleeper because it is soft and provides good body contouring. The copper in this layer helps with blood circulation and keeps the sleeper cool.
convoluted Air Flow Support Foam
This is a 2” egg crate shape foam and the main purpose of it is to transition from the soft top of the mattress to the firm base foam to make the soft side of the Layla mattress more comfortable and contouring to the body. This layer also helps with the airflow of the mattress making it good for hot sleepers.
Then you have the 4” base support layer. This layer provides the necessary support for the mattress and it is common in all-foam mattresses.
Firm Comfort Layer
Lastly, we have 1” of copper infused memory foam. Because this comfort layer is only 1” and is followed by the HD base foam it is considered firm and would be ideal for back sleepers.
How Are the Support and Comfort?
Based on our team’s personal testing of the mattress, we are going to give our take on the comfort level of the Layla mattress.
The soft side allows for a good sink in feel and would be good for side sleepers. Our side sleeper team member was happy on the Layla mattress. Because of the 3” soft copper infused memory foam the sleep on the soft side is not just comfortable for side sleeper but cool as well.
The firm side allows for a little give and not that much sink in feel which makes it ideal for back and stomach sleepers. The 1” copper infused memory foam on this side also keeps you sleeping cool.
Most of the support of the mattress is coming from its 4” HD base foam in the middle, though most similar memory foam mattresses have 6” or 7” of base foam which could increase the support of the mattress but because of the double-sided feature Layla has to go with lower inches in the base foam.
However, unless you are more on the heavy side then that should not be an issue.
Does the Layla Mattress Sleep Cool?
One of Layla’s unique features is the copper-infused memory foam. Copper is known for its healing qualities and being cool. So, sleeping on the Layla mattress would not be hot but cool and refreshing.
Based on our team’s personal experience with the Layla mattress we could say that we didn’t feel hot on the mattress and sleep was overall cool.
The cooling feature makes the Layla mattress somewhat unique compared to other memory foam mattresses.
One other thing that helps dissipate heat out of the mattress is the 2” Air Flow support foam. The empty space caused by the egg-crate shape leaves room for air to circulate and not be trapped.
The cover also has gel in it to add to the cooling effect of the mattress. If sleeping cool is your main concern, then this mattress might just be the one for you.
How Is the Edge Support of The Layla Mattress?
Like most other online mattresses, the edge support of the Layla mattress is not that strong. When sitting on the edges of the Layla mattress you might not feel as supportive as if you were to sit on a traditional mattress.
In General, the only way the edges of the Layla mattress might be an issue is if you or your partner like to sit on the edges.
Layla mattress like other mattresses is designed for sleep and its edge is sturdy enough to allow you to sleep on 100% of the surface without feeling like rolling out.
Does Layla Mattress Have Motion Transfer or Noise?
We had two of our testers try to sleep next to each other while tossing and turning, moving out and into the mattress or even jumping on the mattress and we felt no noise and a small amount of motion being detected by the other person.
Overall motion transfer was minimal because memory foam absorbs motion very good. For people who have a partner that moves a lot during sleep, the Layla mattress will be a decent choice and they would have a quiet sleep
Is the Layla Mattress Good for Sex?
What romance needs is a responsive mattress with good edge support and bounce. Memory foam mattresses tend to score the least in these three areas. Memory foam is not that responsive and moving on it is not as easy as other mattresses and the case is the same with the Layla mattress.
Memory foam also has very little bounce compared to the latex or the hybrid mattresses. Layla mattress, however, has good edge support and good comfort which makes it a good choice but not the best when it comes to romance.
How Firm Is the Layla Mattress?
The Layla mattress is a double-sided mattress with two firmness options.
The soft side has a firmness of 5 out of 10 with 10 being the firmest. It is right in the middle where many sleepers can get comfortable but not too soft where you lose support.
This side is ideal for side sleepers and the good news is that they are the majority. Side sleepers need something soft yet supportive, so they don’t get shoulder pain. If the mattress is too firm, it will push on their shoulders which can make for an uncomfortable sleep.
The firm side has a firmness of 7 out of 10 with 10 being the firmest. This firmness is good for back and stomach sleepers. When sleeping on your back or stomach anything soft will make you dip inside the mattress and cause discomfort to the spine.
If you are a couple with different sleeping positions where one sleeps on their side and the other sleeps on their back it is best to get two twin XLs if that is possible.
This way one partner can sleep on the soft side and the other can sleep on the firm side. Two twin XL mattresses make a king size mattress.
How Durable Is the Layla Mattress?
People buy double-sided mattresses mostly because of their durability. With a double-sided mattress, you can rotate the mattress every 6 months and flip it every year.
That and use a mattress protector to make sure that no stains, dead skin or anything else gets to the foam and compresses it and you have a mattress that can last you a very long time.
That being said, for us to be fair here, we have to remind you that each side of the mattress has different firmness so to fully take advantage of this for durability purposes then you must be okay with both side’s firmness levels.
Still, if we were to treat each side of Layla mattress’s durability at the main and only side, we wouldn’t be disappointed at all.
Layla uses high-density base foam and high-density copper infused memory foam along with a good thick cover. This means that the mattress can last a very long time even if it were one-sided
Where is the Layla Mattress Made?
Layla mattress is made in Phoenix Arizona with high quality American made components. The best part about this is that the mattresses are made to order and not sitting in a warehouse somewhere for months before shipping.
This is good in two ways. First, your mattress is made new and will come to full size faster after unboxing. Second, the mattresses will seldom go out of stock. With a big sale going on they might be a little slower to ship but you’ll still get your order relatively fast.
Does Layla Have Any Unpleasant Smells or off-gassing?
Very little actually and certainly nothing to worry about. We did unbox our Layla mattress in the room and gave it a few hours, but we never felt like the indoor air quality was jeopardized.
That is because Layla is made with certified materials and open-cell structures to air out quickly and have no harmful chemicals released.
Overall, considering this bed is a memory foam mattress the odors were miner and caused no issues for us at all.
Is Layla Worth it for the Money?
Yes absolutely, here is why.
Layla’s double-sided design means you get two mattresses for the price of one. This reduces the risk of the mattress not working out while also increases its overall longevity.
High quality materials
There is a lot of copper infused memory foam in this bed and that is one of the costly materials in this industry. Considering Layla’s price tag with its quality, it should be a no brainer that it’s worth its value.
Also, don’t forget that this mattress is the US made, comes with a lifetime warranty and offers a 120-night sleep trial.
How is the Layla return and trial?
Layla offers a 120-night sleep trial with a minimum of a 2-week test to make sure you have given the mattress enough time and reconsideration. Their refund is for 100% and free of charge.
As usual, to test the companies return policy, we actually go through it as a customer to see how well the company fairs.
The Layla company and customer service did not disappoint at all. We were taken care of as soon as we started the return request, and everything went smoothly.
Layla Mattress Warranty
The Layla company offers a lifetime warranty to its customers and this warranty is fairly standard.
The warranty is only offered to the original purchaser of this mattress and will be voided if any improper foundation was used. In this industry, improper foundation means anything with sagging or large gaps.
The warranty covers manufacturer defects and sagging greater than 1-inch that was not caused by customer abuse and the use of improper foundation.
Also, Layla might charge the customer in some cases for shipping in case any shipping was required.
Shipping & Financing Options
Currently, Layla does not offer any sort of shipping other than the free next to your door shipping. That’s because the mattress is fairly light and in most cases, you won’t need a team to assemble it for you.
Layla offers financing through Affirm. They offer 3, 6, or 12 months financing with the possibility of 0% APR. you can apply on their website to see if you qualify.
Layla is one of the most unique mattresses available in the bed in the box market. With its double-sided copper-infused approach it makes its competition rather slim and makes itself rather unique.
Though it may not be for everyone, but if you like a sink in feel of the memory foam and find the idea of a double-sided bed appealing then this might be for you. After all, this mattress does come with a risk-free 120-night sleep trial so you have nothing to lose.
