During this review I take a look at the double-sided Layla mattress which allows sleepers to choose between different firmness levels, depending on which side they choose to face up. During this review I will describe the performance of the Layla for both the firm and soft sides of the mattress.

Construction

layla-mattress-layers

The Layla is an all foam mattress consisting of four different layers. As I mentioned previously, it’s a double sided mattress that allows the sleeper to select between a firm or soft texture based on their preference.
Cover:  The Layla cover is constructed of a soft polyester blend that I found to get a tiny cozy feeling to it. Along with the soft texture, the cover includes a gel extract to help with temperature regulation and cooling. I should also note that the cover is fully removable for dry cleaning.

Soft Comfort: The comfort layer for the milder side of the mattress includes 3 inches of aluminum infused memory foam (3.5 lb density). This is a fairly thick layer of memory foam, which is a soft material that will allow the sleeper to sink for pressure relief. This material has a slow response to stress and provides a contouring feel to the mattress. At times memory foam may have a reputation for trapping body heat, so Layla comprised the aluminum infusion to aid with cooling.

Transition:  Below the comfort coating is a 2 inch layer of poly foam (1.8 lb density). This layer begins to add a little bit of support to the mattress and acts as a transition layer from the soft comfort layer above to the firm support center below. I must also note that this layer is convoluted (with an egg crate design) to allow air to flow through the mattress for temperature regulation.

Support:  What would be considered the base or support center of the Layla mattress is constructed of a high density (2 lb) poly foam. It is a firm layer that offers support whatever the firmness that the sleeper has selected. This portion of the mattress has a quick response to pressure and provides the Layla its shape.

Firm Comfort: The comfortable layer of the firm side of the Layla is made of 1 inch of the same copper infused memory foam as the soft side of the mattress. With only an inch of memory foam, the sleeper won’t sink far into the layla on this side up, but will still feel some contouring. Another reason this side will feel firmer is that there’s no transition between the comfort and support layers.

 

Firmness


layla-mattress-full

When I pushed into the soft side of the mattress I discovered that the memory foam compacted pretty readily. As I pushed further into the mattress my hands sunk pretty far into the building of the Layla and could feel that the memory contouring to my palms.

When pressing into the firm side of the mattress there’s still some contouring from the memory foam. The noticeable thing about pushing into the firm side is that the rapid transition from the soft memory foam to the firm support centre beneath it, which is a noticeable shift from the soft side of the Layla.

Due to differences in size and body type everybody will feel the firmness of a mattress a bit differently. Rather than giving just my opinion on the overall firmness level of Layla, I enlisted three other people to give their view also. This gives you a better sense of the firmness range you can expect from both sides of the mattress.

The chart above shows the resulting scores from the testers for both sides of the mattress. In general a mattress with a 6.5/10 on the firmness scale is considered moderate firmness. The soft side of the Layla came in at an average of 5.5/10, revealing the Sleepopolis testers found it to be as advertised.

There was a pretty large range on the firmness of the firm side of the Layla, with scores ranging from 5.5/10 to 7/10. I believe the variance in reaction from testers is due to the amount they felt they were sinking into the support layer of the Layla. Personally, I felt that the firm side came in at a 6.5/10 as it allowed me to sink into the memory foam a bit, but the dense poly foam beneath provided good support.

It is notable that there isn’t a enormous gap between the firmness levels of the two sides of the Layla. With some flippable mattresses there’ll be a much wider variance in firmness, however the Layla does seem to sit just on both sides of medium firmness.

 

Pressure Map


Instead of just describing what it feels like to lie on a Layla mattress I wanted to provide a visual representation of where someone may feel pressure points while lying on it. To do this I put a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my backside, and stomach. On the picture below pressure will be represented from blue (low pressure) to red (high pressure). Layla Mattress Coupon Codes

First up from the pressure map evaluation was the soft side of the mattress and I started on my back. In this place my weight was pretty evenly distributed and the results above show low pressure across my entire body. When lying in this place I could feel myself sinking to the memory foam and it started to contour to my body. The memory foam has a slow reaction to stress, so I felt like changing positions took a little bit of additional effort on this side of the mattress.

Once I rolled onto my side I started to dig a little further into the mattress as there was a higher weight concentration within a lower surface area. Side sleepers can sometimes have issues with stress points forming in the shoulders and hips but the stress map results reveal only slightly raised levels of pressure in those regions. Thick layers of memory foam, like the one on the side of the Layla, are generally a positive for side sleepers since they permit the sleeper to sink into the mattress for pressure relief. I discovered this side of the mattress to be pretty comfortable while lying on my side.

Finally I moved onto my belly and with my weight evenly distributed the strain map shows low pressure across my entire body. Stomach sleepers have a tendency to enjoy firmer mattresses as they maintain their hips from sinking, which may lead to lower back pain. I did discover that my hips sank in a little on this side of the mattress, so if you’re a strict stomach sleeper you might prefer the firm side of the Layla.

After I flipped the mattress and lied down on my back the strain map again reveals low pressure across my body. There was a small feeling of shape from the memory foam layer but, with the quick transition to the firm support layer, this side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my spine aligned. Despite the fact that there was a slight memory foam feeling, I did not sink in too far so I did not feel stuck at the mattress on this aspect.

When I rolled onto my side I quickly pushed through the thin layer of memory foam and started to interact with the support layer. This firmer feel is usually not great for side sleepers and I believe strict or bigger side sleepers will prefer the softer side of the Layla.

I changed to lying on my stomach and found that the firm side of the Layla did a fantastic job of keeping my buttocks from sinking into the mattress and my spine aligned. This combined with the low pressure on my torso for easier breathing, leads me to think that stomach sleepers would likely favor the firm side of the Layla. Layla Mattress Coupon Codes

 

Motion Transfer


If you are sharing the mattress with a spouse, you will want to know what it will feel like when another person gets into and out of bed or tosses and turns during the night. This next test is helpful in showing the intensity of motion that is detectable from 1 side of the mattress to the other.

With this test I dropped a 10 pound steel ball from peaks of 4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches and quantified the disturbance on the opposite side of the mattress. This should be quite intuitive: the bigger the lines, the larger the disturbance.

I performed this test on the soft side of the Layla first and was really impressed with the results on the four inch drop. This fall simulates somebody changing positions on the opposite side of the bed and the results picture above shows the Layla did a excellent job isolating motion. As expected there was marginally bigger disturbance felt for the 8 and 12 inch drops, but these are some of the best results I’ve seen while performing reviews.

The firm side of the mattress also performed well on the motion transfer portion of the review. The 4 and 8 inch drops reveal similar results on the seismometer readout above and both are well below the normal disturbance when compared to the same drops on other mattresses. The 12 inch fall showed a larger disturbance, but this is still a good result for this fall.

 

Sinkage Test


For many people buying a mattress it will be important to know whether they are going to feel like they are sitting on top of or sinking into bed. So as to get a better idea of how a person might sink into a mattress, I use four chunks of varying sizes and densities (a 6 pound medicine ball, a 10 lb steel ball, a 50 pound medicine ball, and a 100 pound medicine ball) and place them on the mattress to quantify how much they compress the surface.

These various sizes, weights, and densities help to imitate different body parts or different sized people to show how far into a mattress you may sink.

First up from the sinkage test I quantified the results for the soft side of the Layla.

  • 6 lb medicine ball: 1.5 inches of sinkage.
  • 10 pound steel ball: 2.5 inches of sinkage.
  • 50 pound medicine ball: 5 inches of sinkage.
  • 100 lb medicine ball: 6.5 inches of sinkage.

Next up in the sinkage test was the firm side of the mattress.

  • 6 lb medicine ball: 1 inch of sinkage.
  • 10 lb steel ball: 2 inches of sinkage.
  • 50 pound medicine ball: 4.5 inches of sinkage.
  • 100 lb medicine ball: 6.5 inches of sinkage.

 

Edge Support


If you are going to share a mattress with a partners and will need to use the entire surface then edge support is something you’re going to need to take a look at. Foam mattresses can struggle at times to fulfill the edge support of traditional innerspring mattresses, so I wanted to take a look at how I’d feel near the side of the Layla mattress.

I began on my back on the milder side of the Layla and proceeded pretty close to the edge. I definitely felt as though I was compressing the surface of the mattress a fantastic amount in this position, which is to be expected out of a softer foam.

Once I shifted positions to my side I again dug into the mattress somewhat more. In this position I could feel the soft memory foam layer shape to my body. When I hung of the mattress a bit I could feel the comfort coating squeeze somewhat, but again that is expected from softer foams.

By sitting up on the border of the Layla I focus all of my weight over one place. I did see a fairly good amount of compression in this position, but that is to be expected out of this a thick layer of soft foam.

Once I flipped the mattress firm side up I lied down on my back again and I found there to be less compression through the top as the transition into the firm support layer is significantly quicker.

When I rolled onto my side and hung off the mattress on the firm side there was compression throughout the comfort coating, but the support layer held up pretty well.

Eventually, I sat up on the border of the firm side of the Layla and while there was a bit less compression throughout the surface of the mattress, there was still some overall compression of the mattress. Since the soft comfort layer is currently at the bottom of the mattress my increased weight pushed the whole side down. Layla Mattress Coupon Codes

Is Layla Right for You?


Now that we’ve taken a deep dive into the Layla mattress it is time to discuss who it would be a fantastic fit for.

  • Memory Foam: Both the firm and the soft comfort layers of the Layla use copper infused memory foam to give pressure relief. This material allows the sleeper to sink and provides the classic memory foam sense of contouring to the body.
  • Sleep Cool:  The Layla has a couple of different components in the materials used in the construction of the mattress which have cooling properties. These include the gel extract in the cover in addition to the copper infusion in the memory foam of the relaxation layers, which assist with temperature regulation.
  • Flippable Option:  The Layla could be a great fit if you’re not certain which firmness level is right for you and want two shots at getting it right. Another possible advantage of a flippable mattress is for use in a guest room where there’ll be sleepers with different tastes on the mattress depending on the occasion.
