Layla Mattress Review Video

Is the Layla a Good Mattress for You?

Depending on factors like your preferred sleeping position, body weight, and whether or not you sleep with a partner or pet, the Layla may or may not be the best mattress for you. Take a look at some of my recommendations below.

Who I recommend the Layla mattress for

  • The Layla is a flippable mattress with two firmness levels: soft and firm. I’d recommend the soft side of the Layla to side sleepers who will appreciate its deep sinkage. The firm side is a nice choice for stomach sleepers who need some extra support. That keeps their hips in line with their shoulders.
  • Couples could be quite happy on the Layla. It has low motion transfer, so you’re unlikely to feel your partner tossing and turning. 
  • Anyone who likes the feel of memory foam should be happy on the Layla. It has a classic memory foam feel with a slow response to pressure and plenty of contouring.
The Layla in the Sleepopolis studio.

Who I don’t recommend the Layla mattress for

  • Heavier folks (those over 250 lbs) won’t get the support they need from the Layla. These individuals should check out one of our best mattresses for heavy people, which are made with reinforced coils and foams.
  • Combination sleepers should opt for a more responsive mattress. The Layla has a more “in” than “on top” of the bed feel, making it more difficult to switch positions on either side.
  • Anyone looking for a more traditional innerspring feel in a mattress should check out some of these beds instead.

How Firm is the Layla Mattress?

Now that we’ve got a solid sense of what’s going on inside the Layla mattress, let’s get into how it feels, starting with firmness. As with any feel factor, firmness is subjective and can change a lot depending on one’s body size, shape, and weight. For this reason, I also like to include my coworkers’ opinions in my final scores.

Layla Firmness Level
There is quite a large difference in the support levels for the Layla mattress.

The Layla is flippable and has two firmness options. On the “Soft” side, this bed gets a 5.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale from me. On the “Firm” side, I landed on a 7.5 out of 10. For context, the industry standard for medium firmness is 6.5. It’s safe to say that these ratings are a bit extreme.

“Soft” side: As soon as I hopped onto the Layla in its soft configuration, I felt my body sinking into the plush top layer of copper-infused memory foam. The material contoured around my shoulders, hips, and lower back, providing me with that classic memory foam “hug.” This should work best for side sleepers or those in need of deep pressure relief at the joints.

Back sleeping on the Layla.

“Firm” side: On the “Firm” side, it was quite another story altogether. By swapping out a 3” top layer of memory foam for a 1” layer, the bed becomes super supportive. There’s hardly any contouring, creating an “on top” of the bed vibe. This feel could work best for back sleepers in need of firm support at the hips and lumbar region.

Layla Mattress Performance 

The Layla’s performance depends on your individual specifications and needs as a sleeper, like your body weight, how you sleep, and whether or not you suffer from pain. Take a look at how we determined the Layla’s performance below.

Testing the Layla Mattress in Different Sleeping Positions

Individuals of differing weights will experience the Layla differently. Take a look at how the Layla will feel for light, average, and heavy sleepers in each common sleeping position.

Is the Layla a Good Mattress for Light Sleepers (Under 130 lbs)?

  • Light Back Sleepers  – Many lightweight back sleepers should find the Layla comfortable, as long as they’re alright with a softer or firmer feel. Those looking for a balanced feel may not appreciate the Layla. 
  • Light Side Sleepers – Light side sleepers should feel quite comfortable on the soft side of the Layla.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers – Light stomach sleepers should feel comfortable on the firm side of the Layla.

Is the Layla a Good Mattress for Average Weight Sleepers (130 – 250 lbs)? 

  • Average Weight Back Sleepers – Again, the soft side of the Layla is super-soft while the firm side is super-firm, which could be comfortable for many back sleepers. However, those looking for a medium-firm construction won’t find what they’re searching for in the Layla.
  • Average Weight Side Sleepers – I’d recommend the soft side of the Layla to average weight side sleepers.
  • Average Weight Stomach Sleepers – These sleepers will likely feel quite comfortable on the firm side of the Layla.

Is the Layla a Good Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250 lbs)? 

  • Heavy Back, Side, and Stomach Sleepers – The Layla is not supportive enough for heavy people. I recommend looking at our picks for the best mattresses for heavy sleepers instead.

Layla Mattress Pain Relief Performance

A mattress should distribute your weight evenly to relieve pressure, which prevents and helps alleviate pain. A bed should cushion sensitive pressure points at your hips, shoulders, and lower back, especially if you have pain in those areas. 

To measure the Layla’s pressure relieving abilities, I used a pressure map. I laid the map on top of the mattress and hopped aboard. The map recorded how much pressure my body exerted in different positions. Below you’ll see the results of the pressure map while I laid on my side, back, and stomach. The map turns blue to green for low pressure, and yellow to red for high pressure. I recorded my pressure map results on both the soft and firm and firm side of the Layla.

Back Pain – If you suffer from back pain, you’re going to find that sleeping on your back (if you can manage it) is the best way to alleviate it. As you’ll see in the pressure map graphic, my weight was more evenly distributed on the firm side of the Layla. If you suffer from back pain, the firm side of the Layla should provide the added support you need to keep your spine in a straight alignment.

Shoulder Pain – The soft side of the Layla is a nice option for folks suffering from shoulder pain. Those experiencing shoulder pain need lots of pressure relief to prevent the pain from worsening.

Hip Pain – Similar to shoulder pain sufferers, those dealing with hip pain need a soft mattress to cushion their sensitive joints. I’d recommend the soft side of the Layla as a nice option.

Layla Mattress Performance for Couples

If you sleep with a partner you’re going to want to consider a few extra factors like motion isolation, edge support, cooling, and whether or not your mattress is good for sex. Take a look at how we measured these factors below.

Motion Transfer 

Motion transfer is the movement detectable from one side of the bed to the other. It’s important for couples because it shows whether or not you’ll feel your partner’s movements from their side of the bed on your side.

To illustrate this motion transfer, I dropped a 10 lb steel ball from heights of 4″, 8″, and 12″. Then, I measured the disturbance it caused. The bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

These are fantastic motion transfer results, so you shouldn’t be too bothered by your bed mate’s movements in the night. The star here is the thick top layer of memory foam, which works to absorb motion and transfer it evenly across the surface of the bed.

Sex

Couples need a mixture of motion transfer and responsiveness for sex. A mattress that isolates motion well, but still has bounce, is going to be the best mattress for sex. Though the Layla has great motion isolation, this mattress (especially the soft side) is not the most responsive for sex. 

Cooling 

Two people overheat more easily than one, so a cooling mattress is crucial for couples. The Layla has good cooling, thanks to its copper-infused memory foam layer. The copper helps dissipate body heat. It’s also antimicrobial, preventing odor-causing bacteria from building up. Though some all-foam mattresses like the Layla don’t have great airflow, I’d say this bed sleeps cool compared to its all-foam competitors. 

Edge Support

Edge support measures whether the edges of the bed are sturdy enough to support you when you roll toward them or sleep on the edge of the bed. A mattress with good edge support can feel bigger, since you can use its whole surface area. Good edge support tends to lend itself to more durability, since it prevents premature sagging. 

I think the Layla has poorer edge support, but not the worst I’ve seen. Typically, all foam mattresses don’t have stellar edge support, so I wasn’t surprised by this result. If you’re looking for strong edges I’d opt for a hybrid or innerspring mattress.

What is the Layla Mattress Made Of?

The Layla is a flippable mattress that features both a firm and soft side. Regardless of how you orient the bed, both sides feature top and bottom layers of memory foam surrounding interior sections of poly foam. All Layla foams are CertiPUR-US® Certified, meaning they’re free from harmful chemicals and pollutants. For the purpose of this review, I slept with the soft side up, though I’ll describe both configurations below.

The Layla in the Sleepopolis studio with the Soft side up.

Cover – The Layla cover is made from a thick polyester blend. It’s got a soft hand feel that’s cozy and plush.

Comfort – With the soft side flipped up, the comfort layer consists of a 3-inch section of copper-infused memory foam. This material has a slow response to pressure, providing the sleeper with body-contouring and sinkage. While memory foam has a reputation for overheating, the foam here is infused with cooling copper to keep the temperatures low. 

Transition Layer – Up next, you’ll land on a transitional layer of poly foam. This material is firmer than the one above it, curbing the memory foam’s deep sink and transition the sleeper into the firmer base materials below.

Support Layer- What exactly are we transitioning into? A 4″ layer of support foam that Layla calls Support Core Foam. Solid and stable, this material provides the mattress with most of its foundational support. When oriented with the soft side up, this layer functions as the base. When the bed is configured to the firm side, this section becomes a firm transitional layer. It provides support to the lower back and hips.

Base Layer- Last but not least, we land on the second and final layer of copper-infused memory foam. This one’s only an inch tall, so you can’t feel it when the bed is in its “Soft” orientation. If you were to flip it, this would become the comfort layer. It wouldn’t provide as much pressure relief as the 3″ section of copper-infused memory foam. However, it could give back and combo sleepers a subtle hug at the lumbar region.

A look at the Layla Memory Foam’s layers.

Layla Mattress Unboxing and Off-Gassing

The Layla is a bed-in-a-box mattress, so it will ship compressed in a box to your door. It has an off-gassing period in which it will release gasses trapped during compression. I’d recommend waiting at least 24 hours for this mattress to decompress before sleeping on it.

My Final Thoughts about the Layla Mattress

Now that you’ve made it to the end of my review, I want to recap some of my final thoughts about this bed to help you decide if it’s the right new mattress for you.

My favorite things about Layla mattress

The Layla is a memory foam mattress with the classic memory foam feel that many sleepers love. This bed features a lot of the material, so epitomizes its characteristic sinkage and contouring hug. As far as sides are concerned, I think side sleepers will prefer the soft side and stomach sleepers will be better off on the “Firm” side. Many back sleepers should feel comfortable, so long as they don’t mind a super-soft or super-firm feel. I’d also say that this bed has low motion transfer, marking it as a solid option for couples.

The Layla mattress.

My Layla mattress complaints 

If you’re looking for a bouncy bed, the Layla won’t fit the bill. There’s not a lot of bounce here, resulting in a “stuck-in-the-bed” type vibe. With poorer edge support and an all-foam construction, I’d say the mattress isn’t supportive enough to bolster heavier folks as they sink into the bed. These sleepers will want something with more lift to ensure they’re positioned on top of the structure. 

How Much does the Layla Cost?

Layla Vs

If you’re shopping for a mattress online, you’re likely looking at a few different brands. Let’s compare the Layla against some of its biggest competition: the Nectar and Casper mattresses.

Layla vs Nectar

  • Like the Layla, the Nectar is an all-foam bed, though it’s built almost entirely of memory foam. This gives the mattress a super plush feel with plenty of sinkage, body-contouring, and pressure relief.
  • Because of this, I think the Nectar could be a great fit for strict side sleepers in need of deep relief at the shoulders and hips.
  • The Nectar is most similar in feel to the soft side of the Layla mattress.
  • For more, read my full Nectar mattress review.

Nectar Mattress

The original Nectar mattress is a pressure-relieving, yet supportive, bed. It’s made with a thick layer of gel memory foam, which allows the sleeper to really sink into its surface.

Layla vs Casper

  • The Casper mattress is available in an all-foam and hybrid version. Regardless of which one you pick, you’ll find a medium-firm bed that’s as pressure-relieving as it is supportive.
  • Overall, the Casper has a more balanced feel than the Layla or Nectar. It’s not dominated by one material, so has a mix of give and lift.
  • An interior layer of zoned support makes it a good fit for combo back and side sleepers.
  • Learn more at my full Casper comparison and my Casper mattress review.

Casper Original Mattress

The Casper Original is an all-foam mattress that is a great option for back sleepers who want a balance of support and pressure relief. Combination sleepers will appreciate this mattress's responsiveness, which makes it easy to change positions throughout the night.

Other Models from Layla

Wondering what else Layla has to offer other than the Layla memory foam mattress? Take a look at what else you can find at LaylaSleep. 

Layla Hybrid

  • The Layla Hybrid is a flippable bed like the all-foam Layla, but it swaps out the foam support layer for one of pocketed coils.
  • This creates a bouncier and more supportive structure, regardless of how you orient the mattress.
  • If you like the Layla brand but need firm support, I think the “Firm” side of the Layla Hybrid could be a fantastic fit.
  • Price-wise, the Hybrid is more expensive than the Original all-foam model.
  • Check out my full Layla Hybrid mattress review.

Our Review Process

Our Sleepopolis reviewers personally test each mattress. We start by unboxing the mattress to figure out how difficult (or easy) it is to get the mattress from the box to the bed. Then, we spend time laying on the bed in different positions, taking time to assess it on our backs, stomachs, and sides. Next, we perform our Sleepopolis tests, using specialized tools to measure qualities like motion transfer, bounce, and pressure relief. Our last step is to open up the mattress and take a look at each layer. These steps allow us to give our final verdict on the mattress. Jump back to our mattress picks.

Summary

Layla features an all-foam, flippable design with different firmness levels on each side. This allows sleepers to experience a different feel simply by turning the mattress over. Layla’s comfort layers incorporate memory foam for significant pressure relief, and in our testing we also found the mattress to sleep very cool.
