9.4/10

Layla got its start in 2016 and has since blossomed into one of the most popular bedding destinations on the market. In addition to the all-foam Layla we’re looking at today, the brand also sells a hybrid mattress, two pillows, sheets, weighted blankets, accessories, and more!

Out of all the memory foam mattresses out there, the Layla is one of the most popular and the most innovative – it is a flippable mattress and offers sleepers two firmnesses in one.

Layla Mattress Overview

The Layla is really known for its flippable nature; it features a soft side that provides excellent pressure relief and a firm side that offers great support. However, the Layla is more than just a flippable gimmick, and it is also an extremely comfortable memory foam mattress that boasts some interesting cooling features as well.

There is a lot going on with the Layla mattress and, with its flippable design, it is a great fit for multiple sleeping positions. One of the Layla’s sides should provide the comfort and support that mattress shoppers are seeking.

Who Might Like The Layla

  • Those who are looking for a soft,
  • Side sleepers who want exceptional pressure relief on their shoulders and hips
  • People who prefer the classic memory foam feel that lets them sink in
  • Those who want memory foam but worry about overheating at night

Who Might Not Like The Layla 

  • Those who prefer a medium-firm mattress
  • Heavier stomach sleepers who require extra support
  • Sleepers who don’t like to sink into their mattress too far

Layla Mattress Video Review

There is a lot going on with the Layla, so check out our video to see how it looks in action and what’s it like to flip the mattress!

Layla Mattress Firmness And Feel

The Layla mattress is interesting because it is flippable and has two firmnesses in one

How Firm Is The Layla Mattress?

The soft side of the Layla has a thick layer of memory foam right on top, so it is definitely softer-than-average – 6/10. Flipping the mattress over, there is a thinner layer of memory foam and then a firm support layer beneath that. Because of this, the firm side is, well, firmer and feels like an 8/10.

Sleeping On The Layla Mattress

Starting off back sleeping on the soft side of the Layla, the mattress is too soft for us; we feel like our hips are sinking into the mattress too far, and we aren’t getting the necessary lumbar support or overall support. However, side sleeping on the soft side of the Layla is very comfortable, and we feel almost no pressure on our shoulders and hips. Stomach sleeping, the soft side of the Layla is entirely too soft, and we are not getting enough support under our hips or across the rest of our bodies.

Back sleeping on the firm side of the Layla, we are getting just the right balance of comfort and support. Our hips sink into the thinner memory foam layer, but the support layer stops them from going in too far. Side sleeping, the firm side of the Layla is way too firm but, stomach sleeping, we are getting all the support we need under our hips.

What Does The Layla Mattress Feel Like?

The Layla mattress features soft memory foam so, overall, it has that slow-moving memory foam feel that lets us sink into the mattress. The feel will differ depending on what side someone is sleeping on – the soft side will let people sink in very far, but the firm side will make it feel like they are sleeping on top of the Layla mattress.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130 lbs – 130 lbs

Average weight back sleepers are going to feel better back sleeping on the firm side of the Layla, but they could get enough support on the soft side as well. They will get great pressure relief when they are on the soft side of the mattress and solid support when they are on the firm side.

Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230 lbs

Heavier back sleepers should prefer the firm side of the Layla mattress, and they should experience a nice balance of comfort and support. Side sleeping, even larger peopleshould get enough pressure relief on the soft side, but the firm side might not be supportive enough for the majority of heavier stomach sleepers.

Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130 lbs

Lightweight sleepers should think the Layla is a great fit for all three sleeping positions. They should get enough support and comfort from the soft side of the Layla when they are back and side sleeping. Stomach sleeping, they should feel enough support under their hips and across the rest of their body.

Layla Mattress Construction

Let’s take a closer look at what materials are found in the Layla and what they do for the overall mattress experience. We will look at each layer of this flippable mattress one by one.

Cover

A soft cover can be found on both sides of the Layla mattress, and it is infused with Thermogel, a heat-dissipating material that should keep the top of the mattress particularly cool.

Comfort Layers

Because the Layla is flippable, it features comfort layers on the top and bottom of the mattress. On the soft side of the mattress, the Layla has 3″ of copper-infused memory foam on top of 2″ of convoluted support foam. The copper infusion is anti-microbial and will also keep the memory foam from trapping a significant amount of heat. In addition, the convoluted support foam leaves some room for air to flow through the mattress. On the firm side of the Layla, there is only 1″ of copper-infused memory foam in the comfort layer and no convoluted support foam.

Support Layers

Between the two sides, there is a layer of base support foam that is thick and quite durable.

Mattress Height

The Layla mattress is 10″ tall and is suitably thick for a memory foam option.

Layla Mattress Performance

So, we put the Layla mattress to the test and measured its motion transfer, cooling, and other features. Read on to see how the Layla did on our tests!

Cooling

The Layla is an all-foam mattress so, no matter what, it is going to sleep hotter than most innerspring and hybrid mattresses. That being said, the Layla should sleep cooler than most memory foam mattresses because of its copper infusion and Thermogel cover – copper and Thermogel should draw heat away from sleepers’ bodies and keep the top of the mattress quite cool.

Motion Transfer

When it comes to motion transfer, few materials handle it as well as memory foam, and because of this, the Layla performed quite well during our motion transfer tests. When we placed a glass of water on the soft side of the Layla mattress, we could press into the surrounding area without disturbing the water too much. We did see some more disturbance when we did this test on the firm side, but not too much.

Also, when our reviewer, Marten, lay down on the mattress, our video director could move around on the other side without disturbing Marten. Keeping these results in mind, the Layla should be a good mattress for couples.

Edge Support

Given that the Layla is an all-foam mattress, it does not feature excellent edge support. Sitting down on the edge of the soft side, the mattress collapses quite a bit. Sitting on the firm side, it does not collapse so much, but we still don’t feel very secure in this position. Lying down on both sides of the Layla mattress, we don’t feel like we can approach the edge without rolling off the mattress.

Durability

The Layla mattress contains high-quality foam layers – considering its construction, the Layla mattress should last for between seven and 10 years.

Off-gassing

When we originally took the Layla mattress out of its box, there was some initial off-gassing. However, we left the mattress in a ventilated room for 48 hours, and the smell completely went away.

Noise

Moving around the Layla, the mattress makes almost no noise. This is usually a bigger issue with hybrid and innerspring mattresses, but we don’t usually have this problem with all-foam mattresses like the Layla.

Sex

Those who need a mattress for sex usually want to find a responsive, bouncy mattress; they want something that makes it easy to move around and reposition. Because the Layla contains soft memory foam that is not too responsive, it might not be the best mattress for sex.

Warranty Info

The Layla mattress comes with a 120-night sleep trial and a lifetime limited warranty.

How Does The Layla Compare To Other Mattresses?

For those who want to do some good comparison shopping, we’d like to compare the Layla mattress to some other related mattresses.

Layla Vs Layla Hybrid

The main difference between the Layla and Layla Hybrid can be found in the support layer – the Layla features base foam, and the Layla Hybrid features support coils. Even with this construction difference, the mattresses are close in terms of firmness and feel. They both have a soft side, a firm side, and a slow-moving feel overall.

The Layla Hybrid does have some advantages over the Layla mattress because, with coils in its support layer, the Hybrid is more breathable, supportive, and durable than the Layla mattress. However, these improvements do give the Layla Hybrid a higher price.

Light and medium-weight sleepers and those who don’t struggle with sleeping hot can save some money by choosing the Layla mattress. Larger people, hot sleepers, and those who want a longer-lasting investment might want to consider the Layla Hybrid mattress.
