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).
Layla's mattress is a blend of memory foams that you can flip for a firm or a soft feel and we'll go through each of the layers in detail so you'll know whether it should work for you. Here is what's inside their mattress:
Layer 1: The cover itself is a polyester blend that is gel infused, which provides an added coolness right in the cover.
Layer 2: 3'' of copper infused memory foam. Why do they use copper here? It's conductive properties help whisk away the heat and there are claims that it helps with joint pain and circulation. This is a softer memory foam that provides contouring.
Layer 3: 6'' base foam that has an egg crate top that provides airflow.
Layer 4: The bottom layer is 1'' of the copper infused memory foam, which would be the top of the firm option.
Most find that either the soft or the firm side of the mattress fit their comfort specifications. There are a few reports that the bed is too firm.
Layla's mattress is rated a medium firm for the soft side and a firm for the firm side. If you are looking for a plush feel, this may not be the best option.
Due to the medium firmness, this mattress should alleviate back pain for those that sleep on their back, but for those that find it too firm, it may exacerbate things for side sleepers.
This bed has a lot of technology to whisk away heat. That said, your environment will have to be cool to experience this. If you live in a warm environment, the bed may get warm.
This bed is great for those looking for an all-around solid mattress with a medium-firm memory foam feel. For those that are in warm environments or want a plush mattress, do additional research to find your perfect mattress.
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.
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.
