Layla was the first mattress company to infuse copper into their memory foam to provide a healthier, more comfortable sleep environment. Layla also gives the consumer a dual firmness option that many people swear by. The dual firmness allows the sleeper to test the best of both worlds with one side feeling more plush and soft while the other side feels more supportive and consistent with a medium firm type feel (by flipping the foam on the inside of the cover). Layla also has other interesting features that make it a cost efficient option for a savvy consumer. Check out how Layla stacked up during the MattressJunkie.com review process.
Layla’s mattress cover is as beautiful in person as it is in photos. I was excited to review Layla for many reasons but that gray cover with purple accents got my attention when I first saw this mattress online. Layla’s Thermo Gel infused cover is not only extremely nice to look at but also serves as the cooling barrier between the person sleeping and the first layer of foam. The Layla cover has a nice, luxurious feel to it. I would rank the Layla cover as the nicest I have seen from any mattress I have reviewed.
Layla’s dual firmness is definitely a nice feature. Layla is shipped with the plush, softer side on top. If you unzip the Layla cover, you can switch the mattress foam to the opposite side and have a firmer supported feel. My preference was the firmer side as I found the plush to be too soft for my sleep style. I would best describe the firmer side as a medium, firm. Dual firmness allows you to have some freedom when it comes to finding optimal support levels when you have no idea what would work best for your sleep style.
Whether you sit on the edge of the bed or sleep near the edge, memory foam mattresses don’t always have the greatest edge support. Layla’s edge support was sufficient for my liking. I have seen some mattresses cave in on the ends with no edge support. You won’t have to worry about that with Layla.
As you can see from the photos, we reviewed the Layla mattress on the ground. Layla recommends sleeping any firm, flat surface such as a box spring, platform bed, floor, or adjustable frame.
Most mattresses have an odor to them when you unroll and remove the vacuum sealed plastic. This chemical type smell is called off-gassing. Off gassing is not harmful nor toxic in any way. As your mattress breathes, the off-gassing smell will fade. Layla’s odor was average and faded quickly as the mattress was out of its packaging and breathing. After a day or so, the odor was so light, I didn’t notice it at all anymore.
