Cocoon by Sealy is Sealy's answer to the disruptive mattress in a box brands that have been so popular over the past two years. They offer two mattresses, both a variety of memory foams, a 'Chill' version and a regular version with a soft and a firm version. Through their massive brand awareness and mattress industry connections, it is no doubt that some of the disrupters are concerned about their mattress in a box entry.
Layla got its start in 2015 as the mattress in the box trying to fight homelessness with every mattress purchased. Since then, they have focused themselves primarily on providing one infused-copper memory foam mattress for the masses. They claim that it is cooler, more comfortable, and also more versatile (as you can flip the bed between soft or hard preferences). They also offer a lifetime warranty (but be warned: no stains, rips, tears, or burns count).
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend both Cocoon and Layla in this match up!
At first, I was skeptical about memory foam. We have been using a pillow top mattress for years, and seldom used anything else. Me and my husband have consequently been suffering from back pain for years, and realized a change was long overdue. When we received the mattress, it was rolled up and vacuum sealed in a box, so my first impression was that it would be too thin to fit our bed. But, after removing the plastic wrap and waiting not even 10 minutes, it expanded tremendously, and was very entertaining for my children. I initially thought that the mattress would be too soft for us, but the bed contains just enough firmness to be comfortable, yet just enough softness to create envy from my family whenever they sit on it (which is very often!). After the first week in years with much less back pains and a full nights sleep, we knew that we'd never look back. This is a mattress that pays for itself, and a purchase that will not be wished away. I highly recommend Cocoon by Sealy. 5 stars all around!View More Reviews
I was a bit skeptical about the new Cocoon mattress. However, my initial impression changed when we started unpacking the mattress. First, it was very easy to unpack and set-up. It's compact and slid out of the box easily and was easy to unroll onto the box spring. It took a minute to find out where to rip the plastic exterior bag but once we did that we were in business. It was much easier to get out of the bag and into place than the previous mattresses; it just isn't as bulky or doesn't seem as heavy as traditional mattresses. The mattress is a bit thinner than our previous mattress but I haven't found that to matter. I don't think it really requires the extra deep sheets to cover it even though that is what we used on it. I prefer a bit of a softer mattress and my husband prefers the opposite. However, I find sometimes with soft mattresses that they are too soft to the point where if you are on the edge of the bed, you feel like the mattress will collapse. In this case, I ordered the soft mattress hoping it would work out and have been very happy with it. The top of the mattress is like memory foam which makes it fit my need for a soft mattress but the under part is firmer which gives the support of a firm mattress and makes the mattress feel seem more stable. I'm not sure how this will last long term but for now it is quite nice. The mattress incredibly comfortable to sleep on and I have found that I can't feel the other person if they roll around in the bed. This isn't always something I have experienced with other mattresses and so have really appreciated that quiet feeling. Overall, this mattress has made for some great sleeping and I would definitely purchase it for other bedrooms in our house.
I'm used to big, bulky mattresses. The Cocoon is much lighter. I used to sleep on a pillow top. The Cocoon is even softer. I feel so cradled in it.
I like the mattress. I feel great in the morning but I prefer more firmer than the current one. Sealy made good mattresses for over decades. The texture and the thickness makes you feel comfortable when you sleep. I would recommend for anyone who's looking to sleep tight at night. If you are super heavy person this mattress is not for you.
The only thing that I would say is that the soft mattress is really a medium. I would have preferred an actual soft mattress, but this one isn't a bad mattress and we are sleeping much better on this new mattress than our old one.
Nice and comfortable- came on time and setup easily
It's pretty nice.
I like the idea of the bed in a box. I was very excited about trying the Sealy Cocoon Mattress. The box was extremely heavy, but it was well packed and easy to set up. The bed is surprisingly soft and comfortable.
I've been sleeping on my new mattress for a week. I purchased a firm mattress and can feel a wonderful difference in my body. I suffer from low back and hip pain. I've woken up each morning pain free. Two thumbs up!! I want to purchase a second one for my daughter so I'm hoping Sealy will offer me a returning customer discount.
WE GOT THE FIRM MATTRESS AND WERE A LITTLE SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT WAS A LITTLE SOFT ON TOP...BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED....VERY COMFORTABLE.....WE LOVE IT !
I've been sleeping on my new Cocoon mattress, and I think its been helping me sleep better than I have in a long time! The mattress came in a box and seemed very 'small' at first glance. Once we opened the box up onto our bed, it expanded into a full size mattress within a few minutes. The first night the mattress was way too firm for our liking, but I realize that mattresses (memory foam in general) need to be broken in. After a couple of days of sleeping on the Cocoon, I've been sleeping harder, and with much less movement than I normally do. I also can feel the movement of my sleeping partner significantly less than my previous, non- memory foam mattress. I haven't noticed being particularly cool or warm while sleeping yet, but my husband has mentioned that he felt it was cool for a foam mattress. All of this has definitely helped me sleep very well since I got it!
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, because the depth of the mattress is a bit more thin than I prefer. Now my nightstands seem too high! Also, I like to read in bed and it still seems a bit firm to really do that comfortably, but that might change with some more time. Other than that, so far, we like it more than our old mattress!
It was amazing to think a mattress could form from the pad that was mailed to us! As we cut the plastic away the foam raised up to form a bed. That got everyone in the household excited. The concept is great. We are used to sleeping on a regular spring mattress with a thick 3-4 inch foam pad on top. The Cocoon, at first, was hard and took some time to get used to. We have only slept on it for a week and the paperwork that comes with the bed says to give it 100 days. I am starting to like it. The Cocoon seems to form into your badyshape and actually support you. My husband sweats alot during his sleep and usually always has to kick the blackets off during the night, he says that since we have been sleeping on the Cocoon, he is more comfortable tempurature wise. What is also nice is that not being a spring matress it does not move as much when your sleeping partner moves or gets up. My Husband and I have different schedules, so this helps tremendously, so we are both not bothered when the other gets up. This is by no means a luxouriuos mattress, but it is starting to grow on us.
I recently moved from a 15 year old box spring mattress to memory foam. I had always thought of myself as a firm mattress sleeper since my box-spring mattress was pretty hard. After doing a bit of research, I purchased the Amerisleep Revere bed. Most of the memory foam mattresses averaged a firmness of 6-7 on online reviews, but I found out that this was way too hard for me after sleeping on the Amerisleep Revere bed for a couple months. I ended up returning that mattress and trying the Layla mattress that had a firmness rating of 3 on the soft side and a 7 on the hard hard on online reviews, but also liked the idea of being able to flip it to a firmer mattress if I wanted to (which I have not tried yet). After about a week of getting use to, I found that I am falling asleep way more easily that I did with the box-spring or Amerisleep mattress. Also the company is true to its word that it dissipates heat well through its copper infused mattress even with a mattress cover. I have not tried it during the peak of summer yet but I stayed relatively cooler at the end of summer that my previous two mattresses.View More Reviews
My husband and I have a lot of needs when it comes to sleep. He needs the mattress super soft, I sweat buckets and need it to sleep cool, he wakes easily and needs it to not transfer motion, I sleep on my back and stomach and need lots of support. We've tried lots of mattresses, but we've finally found THE ONE. Layla is perfect for us. Seriously, we've only slept on this thing for 5 nights and the results have been heavenly. The soft side is where it's at. My husband, who is notorious for struggling to get to sleep and stay asleep all night, has been sleeping like a rock. I've been struggling to pull myself out of this wonderbed in the mornings. Do yourself a favor and buy this mattress.
My first nights sleep on our Layla, was so sweet, I never moved all night and never made a potty trip. This in itself has been unheard of. The following night I could not find that same sweet spot I had the night before and slept much like I always have. I think the first night was a catchup night, I have lots of back pain and have not been sleeping well . The third night I awoke in the middle of the night with my hands throbbing and so painful I had to use some cream I have that kills pain. I could not get back to sleep. That was not months ago, I have since seen a specialist and a neurologist and my back is so screwed up that I will have surgery on the 6th of Dec. I am looking forward to sleeping again on my Layla, I know it will be sweet. I presently sleep in our recliner. My husband loves the bed and we both would not sleep on any other.
This is the best mattress we have ever owned.
Ordered on Saturday, arrived on Thursday. In Hawaii! That is a hard opening act to beat. Mattress inflated almost immediately. I didn't expect that. I slept on it the first night. Very little smell and not objectionable. It is well made. The cover is extremely well done.
Can't say much that is meaningful after 3 nights. Frankly, I haven't noticed much difference from the foam topper and cheap mattress I had been using but I think there is still some residual pain. I am using the soft side. The memory foam layer seems to be much more supportive than what I had. But I have the sense that I bottom out once the 3-inch foam layer and the teeth on the convoluted foam are compressed. Time will tell. I am a side-sleeper. 180 lbs and bony. I have nothing other than skin over the hip joint and that is what the new mattress is all about.
I read all the reviews about the mattress. Everyone was pleased. I really liked the idea that it was infused with copper. As a golfer, I understand the benefits of copper. When I was younger, I liked firm mattresses, now I need a soft one. This mattress just isn't as soft as the reviews state. It doesn't mold to my body. It's a good mattress, not great and not what I expected. I'm giving it a few more weeks to see if there is a change. If not, I will return it for a refund. The company does have excellent customer service.
I'm so so happy with my new mattress , I've had wonderful nights. Thanks thanks Layla you are the best in the world
Read the reviews, looked at a LOT of different online mattresses, and kept coming back to Layla. Reasons: LIFETIME warranty, two firmnesses, copper for joint health, competitive price. Loved it the first time I laid on it, never looked back! Thanks,
I liked the Layla. I found the firm side a wee bit too firm so flipped it and liked the feel of the soft side far more than I would have thought. It did sleep a bit warm, but I think I'm finding everything sleeping warm these days. The bigger problem was it did not like being in my Murphy bed (wall bed), especially when stored up a couple weeks at a time. The foot end started to sag and I was worried about long term. I spoke with Akrum at Layla and I have already returned it and my money has been refunded. You can't beat the customer service.
I have noticed that I don't toss and turn as much on this new mattress. The firm side is extra-firm. The soft side is perfect.
I am not completely satisfied with this mattress. It is just a little too firm for me even though it is set on the softer side. It also does sleep warm and I wake several times a night due to being hot. The people at Layla have recommended that the temp in the bedroom be at 72 degrees. That is not feasible in my situation.
