Mattress brands have been trying to top each other by adding on the latest features that technology has to offer but Layla has undoubtedly raised the stakes. Flippable foam mattresses seem like a simple enough concept but to date, very few bed in a box mattress companies have jumped on the bandwagon. That puts Layla mattresses way ahead of the game.
A lot of people are going to agree that memory foam mattresses are a game changer but copper has entered the chat. Copper-infused memory foam have been making the rounds in the mattress world for quite some time now but do they actually work? Science says yes. Proven to be anti-microbial, copper is also an excellent conductor of heat. While the health benefits of copper may be vast and varied, most of them can only work through actual ingestion but for mattresses, helping with heat and germs is more than enough.
As a thermal conductor, copper works by pulling heat away from the body in record time, allowing sleepers to have a cooler, more restful slumber.
As an anti-microbial agent, recent studies have shown that copper based hospital beds harbored far less bacteria than other beds made of either stainless steel or plastic. They found that beds containing US EPA-registered copper materials sustained the microbial burden below the terminal cleaning and disinfection risk. And in today’s world where being a mini germaphobe is highly encouraged, an anti-microbial bed can be enough of a selling point to some people.
But what makes Layla mattresses even more notable is their ability to be flipped, essentially giving buyers the option of having two beds for the price of one. Coming in both an all memory foam and hybrid mattress options, Layla might just have something for everyone.
Layla Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam mattresses have been in high demand since NASA first released their prototype to the public and with good reason – they just work. Offering that unmistakeable memory foam feel that contours and cradles every part of the body, Layla’s flagship mattress can support just about every type of sleeper under the sun.
Who should buy the Layla Memory Foam Mattress?
- All sleeper types – side sleepers, back sleepers, stomach sleepers and combination sleepers
- Those who love a memory foam feel – memory foam has a distinct, “sinking-in” feel that makes you feel as though you are sleeping in the mattress rather than on it
- Hot sleepers
- People who cannot decide between 2 firmness options
Flippable Firmness is what Layla calls their memory foam’s firmness level – in fact, they even have the term trademarked. Offering both a soft side and a firm side, the Layla Memory Foam mattress is an excellent choice for all sleeper types as well as for those of you who share a bed.
Back and stomach sleepers get more support and pressure alleviation from a firmer mattress whereas side and combination sleepers would need a softer mattress since their hips (hello, hip pain) and shoulders bear the brunt of their weight when they sleep. The soft side offers a plush, body-hugging feel combined with reactive support for maximum pressure relief whereas the firm side increased support with less sink.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, the Layla Memory Foam mattress’s soft side falls on a 4-5 (medium soft) and the firm side is more of a 7.5 (medium firm). The firm side of the Layla memory foam mattress offers good edge support as well.
The Layla Memory Foam mattress is made up of 6 layers that work together seamlessly to provide a superb sleeping experience. The layers of the Layla mattress including the copper-infused memory foam are CertiPur-US certified and are made to order in the USA.
Since the mattress is flippable, the 4″ support core foam is in the middle of the mattress providing maximum motion transfer control making it a great choice for couples no matter which side they sleep on.
On the soft side, the Layla mattress features a white and grey cooling cover with a stitched hexagonal pattern, a recent upgrade from their original memory foam mattress. The cover utilizes a Thermo-gel reactive cooling technology that activates with body temperature. The cover is also removable but not machine washable – Layla recommends spot cleaning for little spills and dry cleaning for heavy duty cleaning. For added protection for your mattress, mattress protectors are highly recommended.
The 3″ comfort layer is made up of Copper-Gel memory foam that provides rapid cooling and body heat transfer. The soft side has a soft and plush feel to its layer of memory foam that delivers variable support for deep compression areas such as the shoulders and hips. The copper gel also provides anti-microbial odor control.
The support layer, which also acts as the base layer, is made up of 2 inches of convoluted Max Support Airflow foam for extra cooling properties. It also features zoned SMT for added support.
The firm side of the Layla Memory Foam mattress also has a cooling cover but comes in black and grey. Right underneath the cover is 1″ of Copper-Gel memory foam with a firm, supportive feel that is excellent for back and stomach sleepers as well as sleepers who are a bit on the heavier side. Heavier sleepers are recommended to choose firm mattresses over a softer one.
The Layla Memory Foam mattress will work with any bed base, including an adjustable bed frame. It also comes with handles on both sides for easy flippability.

Layla Hybrid Mattress
Check price | Coupon code automatically applied
You gotta love how Layla prefaces their Hybrid mattress on their website – “this is not your grandma’s mattress” and indeed it is not. It’s even better. With copper-infused memory foam and an individually wrapped coil system, it is, are you ready for this, also flippable.
We rarely see hybrid mattresses that are flippable plus they can be a little pricey but verified reviews have all so far been raves. So much so that mattress reviews from almost all major review sites deem it “The best Hybrid Mattress of 2021”.
Who should buy the Layla Hybrid?
- Side sleepers, back sleepers, stomach sleepers and combination sleepers
- Those who share a bed, especially with someone who tends to toss and turn throughout the night
- Hot sleepers
- Those who prefer the bouncier support of a coil system
- Those who are transitioning from an innerspring bed
- All body types
- Those who cannot decided between 2 different firmness options
The Layla Hybrid comes with both a soft side and a firm side. That said, the firm side falls on around a 6-7 (a medium firm) on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the firmest so those looking for a rock hard mattress may want to look at other options. The soft side is around a 4-5 which is a medium soft.
The individually wrapped coil system may account for the extra softness of Layla’s Hybrid mattress when compared to Layla’s all foam offering but you know what, we’re not at all mad about it. There’s a happy medium for most types of sleepers on this bed, be it the soft side or the firm side. If you’re a strict side sleeper though then you’ve hit the jackpot. Layla’s Hybrid mattress gives outstanding pressure relief for all your main pressure points.
Sleepers weighing over 250 lbs would do well with a hybrid mattress as the coils offer enhanced support. Speaking of coils, Layla’s Hybrid mattress also provides excellent edge support so there’s no danger of rolling off the bed for the weirdos (like me) who like sleeping dangerously close to the edge.
There are 7 layers to Layla’s Hybrid mattress, including the covers on each side.
Both the soft side and firm side of the mattress feature a breathable super soft fabric with integrated handles for easy flipping. The cover also comes with a zipper so you can take the cover off for cleaning. Bear in mind though that the cover is not machine washable so spot cleaning is key. Mattress protectors can help massively with accidents.
Next comes the comfort layers made up of Copper-Gel memory foam (2.5 inches on the soft side, 1 inch on the firm side). The copper-infused memory foam comfort layer provides rapid cooling and body heat transfer as well as variable support for deep compression areas such as the shoulders and hips. Copper acts as a cooling agent for both sides of the Layla Hybrid. It also is naturally anti-microbial and helps control odor keeping your mattress fresh for longer.
Both sides also feature a transition layer made up of Max Airflow Support foam (1.5 inches for the firm side and 2 inches for the soft side). Both layers have deep channels to provide extra cooling properties as well as a zone Surface Modification Technology for customized support.
Sandwiched in between all the layers of memory foam is Layla’s proprietary Infinity Edge Individually Wrapped coil system. The 6-inch, 14-gauge center pocketed coils offer maximum motion control while the 16-gauge double row edge coils provide superior edge support. A coil system also allows air to flow freely throughout the mattress, adding to the already cooling benefits of the copper-infused foam.
The memory foam layer of the Layla Hybrid is CertiPur-US certified and made in the USA. The mattress can be used with most bed bases as well as an adjustable bed base.

Doing what all mattress in a box companies aim to do, they cut out the middle man and went directly to the buyer.
