You may know Layla from their flippable bed-in-a-box mattress with a firm side and a soft side, but the brand does much more than just making two-in-one mattresses. Today we’ll be taking a deeper look into one of their other products, the Layla mattress topper. This topper is made with copper-infused memory foam, with a soft outer cover and straps to keep it in place.
Mattress toppers are a great way to change the feel or firmness of your mattress, but is this the right one for you? In this review I’ll go over what this memory foam topper is made of, how it feels, and who it is best suited for.

Who is the Layla Mattress Topper Best For?
When shopping for a mattress topper, there’s a lot to consider, such as if you sleep hot, your budget, and what feel you’re looking for from a topper. Let’s go over who the Layla mattress is best for and who should consider a different topper.
Who I recommend the Layla mattress topper for
- Back sleepers who want a softer, more pressure-relieving feel from their bed will likely enjoy the Layla mattress topper. It allows for some contouring but is still supportive.
- Side sleepers may also enjoy the Layla topper. It should offer pressure relief and some contouring for side sleepers whose mattress is just a touch too firm.
- The Layla topper is also a good option for hot sleepers, as the memory foam is infused with copper gel as a cooling agent.
Who I don’t recommend the Layla mattress topper for
- Stomach sleepers likely won’t get much out of the Layla mattress topper, as it’ll make their mattress softer and allow for their hips to sink into the mattress, which can cause lower back pain.
- It also may not be the best pick for heavier sleepers, who weigh 250 pounds or more, as it is only two inches thick. Heavier people will sink through the foam more than average or lightweight people and may not get the pressure relief they need.
- The Layla topper is very high quality and the price reflects that, so it also might not be the best budget-buy.
What is the Layla Mattress Topper Made Of?
The Layla memory foam mattress topper is available in six different sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king. I tested the queen size for this review.
Cover: The Layla topper’s cover is made of a blend of 66 percent polyester, 30 percent viscose, and four percent poly lycra. The cover has elastic straps at each corner that allow you to secure the topper to the mattress.
Fill: The fill of the topper is a two-inch block of memory foam, which is infused with copper gel beads. Copper has cooling properties that draw heat away from the body, as well as make the foam antimicrobial. Additionally, foam used in this topper is CertiPUR-US certified to be free from harmful chemicals.
How Does the Layla Mattress Topper Feel
I personally tested this topper out by laying on it in different sleeping positions and trying it on different mattresses.
The foam itself had a pretty slow-sinking-in feel to me. It felt like a higher density foam to me because it felt quite supportive, and I didn’t just immediately sink into it. Rather, the longer I laid on it, the more I could feel it molding around me to provide some cozy contouring.
Let’s go over how this topper felt on different mattresses.
Soft: Putting the Layla topper on a soft mattress didn’t change the feel too much — overall, the bed still felt soft.
Medium-firm: Adding the Layla topper to a medium-firm mattress made it feel more like a true medium mattress. The medium-firm mattress was supportive but not completely firm and adding the topper maintained that supportive feel, while allowing for more contouring and pressure relief.
Firm: When I added the Layla topper to a firm mattress, it made the bed feel more medium-firm. The mattress I tested it with was super firm and offered no contouring at all, so adding the topper provided that cushioning.

All in all, I think the Layla mattress topper is a great sleep product. The cover is soft and the straps are very handy for keeping the topper from shifting around on the mattress surface. The foam feels high-density, so it offers support while still conforming around your body to offer pressure relief. The copper infusions also help to keep the foam from overheating.
I found the Layla mattress topper to be comfortable for both back and side sleeping and I think it would be a great addition for anyone looking to add a little more cushioning to their current mattress.
However, it’s not the best option for stomach sleepers, as a softer mattress will only cause their hips to sink and put their backs out of alignment. The Layla topper also isn’t the best choice for heavier people, as it is only two inches thick, and heavier people will likely sink through the foam and “bottom out” more than lighter people, which could lead to buildup on pressure points.
