Layla Mattress Review

Shopping for a new mattress is a serious endeavor. This is a piece of furniture on which you’ll be spending a third or more of your time for the next several years. Now that you can shop online, it makes research much easier. You don’t have to worry about tricky salesmen avoiding the disclosure of important information that can help you make the right choice.

The New Layla mattress has a number of excellent qualities that could make it a good fit for people who struggle to find the right firmness. We’ve all heard the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. Papa Bear’s bed was too firm. Mama Bear’s bed was too soft. We all want to find a mattress with Baby Bear’s firmness… just right. Layla has taken measures to make this more possible

I recently had the chance to try the New Layla mattress out for myself, and I think it could be a great solution for the right person. Keep reading to find out if that could be you!

What It’s Made Of

While it can be tempting to focus on exterior aesthetics, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The New Layla mattress is a hybrid product, and this means it combines different material types to arrive at a combination that is able to balance comfort and support. In total, the New Layla mattress is 10 ½ inches thick, and this is divided up into four layers, which we’ll take a look at one by one.

The Comfort Zone

The New Layla mattress kicks off with memory foam, a material well-known for its ability to mold to shape your unique body shape. While traditional memory foam was known to retain heat, the visco found in the New Layla mattress is copper-infused. Copper is able to easily transfer heat, so this helps keep you sleeping cool despite the close contact with memory foam. This allows you to make the most of the memory foam’s deep-compression support without overheating.

The second comfort layer of the New Layla mattress is found in an unusual spot, and we’ll talk about how this works when we get into detail about firmness. Located at the bottom, it consists of another 1 inch of copper-infused memory foam

The Support Zone

The two middle layers of the New Layla mattress comprise the support zone. This starts with 2 inches of convoluted support foam. It’s the classic egg-carton shape, and this is well-known for natural heat transfer capability. It’s supported by the main support layer, 4 ½ inches of base support foam. This thickest layer is firmer than the rest and offers the primary support for the mattress as a whole.

The New Layla Cover

I love the way the New Layla cover looks. The 3D cubes are visually appealing, and the neutral colors make it easy to fit this product into just about any setting. It’s made of three materials:

  • 66% polyester
  • 30% viscose
  • 4% lycra

Viscose is a unique material, and it is neither natural nor synthetic. The regenerated cellulose fiber it’s made of makes it very soft, smooth, and almost silky. It’s produced using a thermoGEL cooling agent that’s woven into the fabric. Considering the use of memory foam in the top layer, this is helpful in aiding in cooling.

The cover is able to unzip, and this helps make it easier to keep your mattress clean. However, it’s not machine-washable. If the time comes for a touch-up, take it to your drycleaners.

In-Depth New Layla Mattress Review

The online business model takes a lot of stress out of mattress shopping. You don’t have to waste time and gas driving from one retailer to another. Shoppers are also able to avoid getting bamboozled by fast-talking sales associates trying to make a commission. You can do all the research you need without pressure or ever having to leave your home.

Although you don’t get the chance to lay on online mattresses before you buy, we’re here to help give you a good idea of what to expect. Not to mention, you usually receive a sleep trial to see if it’ll work. During the course of our New Layla mattress review, some of the key factors we’ll look at include:

  •        Firmness
  •        Comfort
  •        Pain Relief & Support
  •        Heat Retention (how cool the mattress remains)
  •        Off Gassing (the odor the mattress emits)
  •        Intimacy


When it comes to firmness, the New Layla mattress is very unique. That’s because it offers two options, and this is why the comfort zone of this product is found in both the top and bottom layers.

The mattress comes set up in a plush setting with the thicker memory foam layer on top. However, when you remove the cover and flip it upside down, the thinner layer of memory foam is now on top directly followed by the firmer, thicker support layer. To help decide which side would best suit you, the following information can be helpful:

  • Plush Side
  • Firm Side
    • You sleep on your back or stomach
    • You have a body mass index over 26
    • You like to feel like you’re floating on top your mattress rather than sinking into it

Neither side would be considered medium. I rate the plush side as a 4/10 and the firm side a 7/10. The firmness options can be convenient specifically for individuals, but it also allows sleep partner the chance to explore their options to see which is most suitable.


I really enjoyed the plush setting. However, if that’s just not your thing, a firmer mattress is just a flip away. Most products don’t offer this kind of feature, and this really sets the New Layla mattress apart in terms of the ability to personalize comfort. The two support layers do a good job at providing the bounce necessary to make moving and getting in and out of bed easy. I like how they work with the memory foam to balance contour and support.

Pain Relief and Support

If you suffer with painful pressure points, especially in the hips and shoulders, the New Layla mattress is definitely worth considering. You can really pick up on the contour of the memory foam, but, even on the plush side, it didn’t feel like the mattress was sucking me in.

Heat Retention

Considering the use of memory foam so close to the cover, heat retention becomes a concern. However, Layla took various measures to ensure the mattress is able to sleep cool while still providing visco-contour so close to the cover:

  • ThermoGEL cooling agent woven into the fabric of the cover
  • Convoluted support foam that naturally allows for good airflow
  • Copper infusion in the memory foam


During the manufacturing process, volatile organic compounds are released into the air. While most of this takes place in the plant, not all are able to escape before the mattress is compressed, placed in a box, and sent to your home. When you open it up, it takes some time for the remaining VOCs to clear off. This is known as offgassing, and, for some people, it can be particularly bothersome.

If this describes you, you’ll be happy to know that the New Layla mattress is made without ozone depleters, flame retardants, or formaldehyde. This makes offgassing minimal. It shouldn’t take more than a day for the majority of VOCs to dissipate.


Memory foam can put a damper on intimacy, and this is because it can often cause you to sink in and make movement more difficult. The support foams do a good job at adding bounce. For the best experience, I’d recommend using the firm setting for improved performance.

Sleeping Position Ratings

I know I’ve seen my kids in some pretty bizarre sleeping positions, so there are definitely quite a few you can find yourself in. However, for the most part, we sleep in three positions: side, back, and stomach.

It’s important to understand how your preferred sleep position will impact your experience on a mattress before you buy. Let’s take a look at what you can expect in the three primary sleep positions with the New Layla mattress:

  • Side
    • When you sleep on your side, your shoulder pushes into the mattress with increased force. Because of this, a medium to soft firmness is typically the best option. I found the plush setting to make side sleeping very comfortable. Considering many mattresses come only in medium firmness, the New Layla mattress can be a great option for side sleepers.
      • Side Sleeping Score: 9.0 / 10
  • Back
  • Stomach
    • Stomach sleeping is typically best facilitated by a medium to firm product. You don’t want your face to sink into the mattress, and I think most people will find the firm side to be very accommodating for this sleep position. I like that you still get to enjoy the contour of memory foam without sacrificing on solid support.
      • Stomach Sleeping Score: 9.75 / 10

Bed Frame Compatibility

Although you can place your New Layla mattress on the floor, this increases the risk of moisture accumulation that can ruin it. Therefore, it’s important to be prepared with a proper foundation. It’s pretty compatible with most bed frames, and just some options you can choose include:

  • Adjustable base
  • Box spring
  • Platform bed as long as slats are 3 inches apart or less

Warranty, Guarantee and Trial Period

  •        Warranty: Lifetime
  •        Guarantee: Full money back guarantee for any manufacturing-related issues.
  •        Trial Period: 120 night trial period. If you aren’t happy during this time, you can call Layla to pick up your mattress and provide a full refund.


I always appreciate a well-made memory foam product that offers contour without excessive sinkage and heat retention. If you suffer with pressure points, I think you’ll appreciate this feature as the memory foam offers excellent contour. If you’ve struggled in the past to find a product that offers the right firmness, I think you’ll appreciate the options the New Layla mattress offers. Keep in mind, neither side is medium, so you should have a preference for a slightly plush or slightly firm mattress. The options also make it a great contender for any sleeping position.

You’re on the quest for the perfect mattress, and achieving in this has never been easier. You can shop in the comfort of your home, and your product is delivered at your doorstep. So, is the New Layla mattress right for you? It could be if:
