After hours of researching the best “bed in a bag,” I ultimately decided to go with a Layla Mattress. After sleeping on the mattress for a month, I am here to give a full and honest review.

Why we needed a new mattress
We were long over due for a new mattress. Since we have been married (almost two years ago) we have used the same twin size mattress that was not a quality mattress, even in its prime. Not only was it way too small for us, but we both had trouble sleeping and woke up with back aches. Once I finished restoring our master bedroom, I began researching different mattresses.
Finding a New Mattress
Since we knew we wanted a king size bed, we decided a memory foam mattress that comes packed in a box would be the most convenient to move up the stairs and into our room. With so many of these popular mattresses on the market, I wanted to be sure we got one we would be happy with for years to come. I spent hours researching different memory foam beds and reading reviews. Ultimately, I landed on Layla.
Layla Sleep Mattress
Here are some basic facts about Layla mattresses that drew me to their mattresses over their competitors:
- Free Shipping
- 120 Night Money Back Guarantee
- 10 year warranty
- Made in the USA
- Copper infused mattress allows for cooler sleeping and naturally prevents odor causing bacteria
- All foams used are certified and tested safe
- Double sided- 2 opportunities to get the perfect fit (Soft side is 4/10 and firm is 7/10)
- Good edge support, even on the soft side
- Excellent movement control (can’t feel when your sleeping buddy moves)
- Great for all sleepers, especially side and back sleepers
This is a “straight to the point” summary of what Layla Mattresses have to offer, and from our experience it is 100 percent true!
Layla also includes a fun package that includes a tool for opening your mattress so it does not accidentally get cut, a t-shirt, small travel bag, canvas tote, and stickers. A really kind gesture and fun surprise!
The Layla Sleep Hybrid Mattress
Layla offered two mattresses; their original memory foam and their new memory foam hybrid. We decided to go with the hybrid mattress because we liked that it still contained an inner layer of coil springs, all wrapped in layers of memory foam, and somehow is still delivered compressed in a large duffel bag. This mattress is amazing and we don’t know why we waited so long to finally upgrade!
Setting up the Layla Hybrid Mattress
Our mattress was delivered right to our door, compressed into a large duffel bag. We have a king size mattress and it was easy enough for me to move around by myself but I did need help getting it up the stairs (it was heavy). I place the bag on the bed, took the bag off, and used the provided to cut the plastic away. The bed instantly began expanding and within minutes I had a full king sized mattress. It was incredible! The best part was that we were able to sleep on it that same night! I will note that there was a new mattress smell for the first few days. This smell eventually goes away.
Choosing a Side
One of my favorite features about Layla mattresses are that they are double sided with a soft side and firm side. This gives you two chances to find the perfect fit and the opportunity to switch it up over time. We decided to start with the soft side; which, ended up being a perfect fit for us. The soft side provides great support while still allowing areas like your hips and shoulders to sink in when sleeping on your side. This has significantly reduced pain in my shoulders and back.
My Husband and I did not realize how poor our sleep quality was until experiencing a good nights sleep from our Layla mattress. We noticed a huge improvement after the very first night. Not only is the mattress comfortable and accommodating to pressure points, but it also has excellent motion control. Our dog, Lola, sleeps in bed with us and would wake us up throughout the night from twitching and kicking while she slept. Our Layla mattress absorbs these vibrations so they no longer cause us to wake up. Although the mattress is comfortable enough to want to stay in bed all day, we now wake up feeling rested and ready to take on the day. It has made all the difference in our attitude and productivity.
Layla Sleep Hybrid Mattress Review Summary
Overall we are extremely pleased with our Layla Mattress and highly recommend it to all of our family and friends. If you are in the market for a new mattress and would like a memory foam bed, I would suggest going with Layla. We have the hybrid mattress; however, based on the quality of our bed I would bet that the original memory foam mattress is just as great.
