IDLE Sleep mattress review

Take a deeper look into our review of the Idle Sleep double sided mattress, including our methodology, scoring and mattress performance to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

Visit IDLE Sleep

Set up test

The IDLE Sleep mattress took us two minutes to set-up. It had a lot of packaging, but minimal off-gassing odor.  The IDLE sleep puffed to life instantly.

So for our setup test, IDLE Sleep gets a 8 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Motion transfer is just a fancy way of saying how much movement you feel if your partner is moving around. You want this to be pretty minimal.

Part A - The Humans

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test is a two-part test. We start by asking both RJ and Asha to lie on the bed, blindfolded, and rate on a scale from one to ten how much movement they felt when their partner was moving around with 10 being no movement at all.

Movement on the IDLE sleep was pretty noticeable to RJ and Asha. They gave it a collective score of 6.5.

Part B - The Wine

Next, comes our wine test. This is a great visual indicator of how much motion is being transferred from one side of the bed to another.

We had RJ lie down and roll back a forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved.

That wine was pretty tipsy, so we gave it a 6.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave IDLE Sleep a 6.25 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

When choosing a mattress, you may not think to consider how much support the edge provides. But if you find yourself sleeping on the edge of your bed or use the end to get ready in the morning, you should definitely consider the edge support.

The Mattress Advisor edge support test is a two-part test.

Part A - The Shoe Test

To start, we asked both RJ and Asha to sit on the edge of the bed to tie their shoes. They rated this task on a scale from one to ten, with 10 being “extremely easy, with exceptional edge support.”

Support on the end of the Idle Sleep mattress is not too bad. It scored an 8.25 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Next, we had RJ and Asha lie on the edge of the bed in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back, to see if they could sleep comfortably in that section of the bed.

RJ and Asha found it very comfortable (and safe) to lay on the edge of the Idle Sleep mattress. So for the edge support side, this mattress scored an 8.75.

So IDLE Sleep gets a 8.5 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to find something that puts minimal pressure on your hips, thighs and shoulders. Let’s take a look at how well the Idle Sleep mattress provides pressure relief.

We measure pressure relief by using a pressure mapping film that shows areas of high pressure. Here’s what you need to know: the cool spots are good and the warms spots are bad. The warmer the color, the more pressure is being placed on that area of the body.

We saw mainly blue and green on RJ! So we give him an 8.5 for pressure relief.

We saw a hair of red on Asha’s shoulders, so we give her a 7.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, IDLE Sleep gets a 8 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

Did you know your sleeping posture is just as important as your posture when you are awake?  For every mattress we test, we take a look at how well it keeps your spine in a straight line.

We took a close up of both RJ and Asha’s backs to see the alignment. You’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

Both RJ and Asha’s spines was pretty darn straight with the slightest of curves towards the base of the neck.

For spine alignment, IDLE Sleep gets a 9 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

When it comes to getting comfortable on your mattress, responsiveness becomes very important. Responsiveness is just a fancy way of saying how well the mattress adjusts or responds to your sleeping positions while you sleep.

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

IDLE sleep is a mattress that works to respond to its sleepers.

So IDLE Sleep gets a 8 out of 10 for responsiveness.

The total Mattress Advisor score for the IDLE Sleep mattress:

A look inside

The IDLE Sleep mattress is made of three foam layers and a layer of pocket coils wrapped in a thermocool fabric.

All IDLE Mattresses are two-sided. The top three layers are the same on each side and share the pocket coil layer.  Flipping your IDLE will ensure it lasts longer than any other mattress in the online market.

  1. Thermocool fabric designed to compliment your body’s natural thermal regulation, keeping you cool when you are too warm, or warm when you are too cold.
  2. 1” of IDLE Quilting Foam quilted into the cover for added softness & comfort on the very top layer.
  3. 1″ IDLE Air Flow Response Foam: this custom blend of foam adds bounce and is aerated to allow excellent airflow for cooler sleep.
  4. 2″  IDLE Cooling Buoyancy Foam: this is our custom blend foam that reacts faster than memory foam and has better support with up to 4x better pressure relief.  It also does not trap heat like memory foam & is much easier to adjust positions on with a faster response.
  5. 6″ Quantum Edge-To-Edge Pocketed Coils: these coils provide world-class support throughout the mattress.  The Edge-To-Edge support also means you will not get a “roll out of the bed” feeling when sleeping close to the edge of the mattress.

What IDLE Sleep customers have to say

  • “Absolutely LOVE our new IDLE mattress.  We purchased the All Foam 3 weeks ago and we have never slept so great.  Being 2-sided is what made us decide to choose IDLE. My husband is much heavier than me and mattresses just don’t last long for us.  We are glad we can flip our mattress again.” -James and Jayme
  • “I have had an IDLE Foam Mattress for 4 weeks now and I am loving it.  The pressure relief is awesome for my messed up back. It’s also a plus the mattress is double sided like my old mattress that lasted 15 years.” -Nick F
  • “I purchased the IDLE Hybrid and have held off for almost 2 months to review it to give the bed and my body a proper courtship…and it’s AMAZING. I tend to take a long time buying anything over $100 and research it thoroughly. Pay attention to the info on the website, it’s very helpful and ultimately what helped me pull the trigger. Love my IDLE!” -Daren
