Layla Mattress Review

2019 Update

We compared, tested and rated more than 50 foam mattresses. See why Layla is a great mattress for people with back and joint pain.

Customer Rating: 4.5/5
Mattress Advisor Score:       8.8/10

In this review, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about the Layla mattress, including how it scored in our Mattress Advisor test. We’ll also give you an overview of the benefits Layla provides to its customers – like a 120-night trial period and lifetime warranty! Read on to learn more.

Layla Mattress Highlights

  • The Layla is unique because you can actually sleep on both sides of the mattress depending on the level of firmness you prefer (kind of like a reversible bathing suit). If you’re not sure whether you prefer firm or soft, then the Layla might be a good option for you. All you have to do is flip your mattress to the preferred side.
  • Layla is the first mattress company in the world to implement a proprietary “softening” process to their fabric which makes their mattress cover much softer than any you’ve ever felt. And while most people will be sleeping with sheets on their mattress (we hope), this does make a difference in how your sheets interact with the mattress surface.
  • Layla is also one of the few mattress brands of their kind to infuse copper in their foam. Copper is known to help reduce joint inflammation and ease joint pain/stiffness, which is especially helpful for people with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
  • While Layla isn’t the cheapest option, it’s still comparable (and you also have to consider the fact that you’re kind of getting two mattresses in one). A lifetime warranty isn’t bad either.

Customer Reviews on the Layla Mattress

Layla mattress reviews on sleep quality:

  • “From the first night, I slept so much more soundly. I don’t even recall rolling over once. I used to wake and roll every half hour on my old foam bed. This is such a relief.” – Jody S.
  • “I have had it for 2 months now and I love the bed more than anything. I wake up refreshed and we’ll rested everyday. 10/10 recommend this bed and for the price it out preforms their biggest competition Tempur-Pedic no doubt.” – Garrett L.
  • “I’m sleeping the best I have in years with my new Layla.” – Catherine W.

Layla mattress reviews on firmness:

  • “The best mattress I’ve ever slept on. My partner and I were close to getting a Tempurpedic mattress, but decided to give Layla a try first and I’m so glad we did! My partner is more of a firm mattress guy and I’m all over the place. My preference tends to vary from soft/medium to medium/firm. However, we haven’t even flipped the Layla yet, as we’ve both been enjoying sleeping on the “soft” side. It’s beyond comfortable, sleeps cool and we couldn’t be happier.” – Danny G.
  • “The Layla has amazing support. We use the firm side. Can’t even feel my husband tossing and turning.” – Sheri M.
  • “My husband has a bad back and we wanted a more firm mattress. We have the mattress on the soft side and it is firm enough that we didnt need to flip it. Also, it is more cooling than any other mattress we have had. You also can not beat the price.” – Sarah P.

Layla mattress reviews from customers with back and joint pain:

  • “I have owned 2 memory foam beds from Bragada and Amerisleep–both slept warm. This Layla mattress is my 3rd and it does not sleep warm. I sleep on my back and left side and it is very comfortable. I am recovering from a herniated disc in my neck and have been able to sleep 6-7 hours a night after only 4 nights of interrupted sleep from pain. I will only own memory foam mattresses because they move with your body and I have little to no issues with my arms falling asleep and causing numbness. I will only own a memory foam mattress and so far Layla has been the best. Customer service was helpful when I called with one question too. Thank’s Layla!!” – Brenda W.
  • “I had a hip and shoulder issue. A switch to this bed has done wonders for my quality of sleep and I don’t wake up sore anymore.” – Jordan G.

A Look Inside the Layla Mattress

Knowing that you can flip the mattress, we’ll describe the four layers inside the Layla mattress like a sandwich:

  • Soft side – copper-infused memory foam provides comfort and cooling
  • Convoluted air flow layer – softer density foam provides air flow and heat dissipation
  • Base support foam – firm density foam that provides the overall support
  • Firm side – copper-infused memory foam provides firmer feel and cooling

All layers are surrounded by a thermo-gel cooling cover. (Note: the more you cover the mattress with a mattress protector, topper and/or sheets, the less likely you are to reap the benefits of the cooling cover.)

Layla Mattress FAQs

How does the 120-night trial period work?

After you receive your Layla mattress, you will have 120 nights to determine if you’d like to keep it. Layla recommends sleeping on the mattress for at least two weeks to help you get used to the materials.

If you decide that you don’t love your Layla mattress, they’ll pick it up from you and issue you a full refund. Layla will donate all returned mattresses to charity so there are no restocking fees.

How long will it take for my Layla to be delivered?

Most customers in the lower 48 states can expect their new Layla mattress to arrive in 4-7 business days from the day they order with free shipping. *There is a $100 shipping fee for Alaska and Hawaii customers.

How do I set up my Layla mattress?

The Layla mattress comes compressed, rolled and boxed. You will simply unbox the mattress, unroll it on your foundation, and wait for it to expand. If you decide to change the firmness, you should unzip and remove the cover, flip the mattress over, then zip the cover back on.

Is there a break-in period for my Layla?

It can take up to 30 days to fully break in your new mattress. During this time, your body will get used to the new mattress feel and the mattress will have time to fully take shape and provide all the benefits it was designed to offer. But the good news is you have plenty more than 30 days in your trial period!

Can I finance my Layla mattress?

You can! Layla has partnered with Affirm to offer financing over the course of 3, 6 or 12 months. Click on the Affirm button at checkout to learn more.

Is the Layla mattress eco-friendly?

All foams used in the Layla mattress are CertiPUR-US certified; they are made without any ozone-depleters, PBDE flame retardants, VOC’s, mercury, lead and heavy metals, formaldehyde, or any prohibited phthalates.

Can I clean my Layla mattress?

The cover of the Layla mattress does completely zip off. Layla recommends dry cleaning the cover if it needs to be cleaned.
