Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Mattress Review
The Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Mattress has been designed and constructed as a flappable memory foam mattress which allows two different levels of firmness on the two sides of the mattress. Those people who prefer a medium-soft mattress can sleep on the soft side of the mattress while those who prefer a firmer one can sleep on the firmer side. The soft side enables a very comfortable sleep while the firm side enables a highly supportive one. The switch can be achieved by simply flipping the mattress. The memory foam used in this mattress is infused with Copper gel, which provides targeted pressure relieving properties aimed at those parts of the body which are sensitive. It also helps the sleeper to have a very cool, clean and sanitary sleep throughout the night.
Materials and Construction
The Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Mattress has got a medium softcover on one side and a firm cover on the other side. The constitution of the cover is the same except for the difference in its firmness level on both sides. The firmness level on the soft side is 4.5 on a scale of 10 while the firm side has a firmness level of 7. The cover has been infused with Thermo Gel, and it is activated when the body lies down on it, and it heats the sleep microenvironment. The Thermo Gel produces a cooling effect immediately and cools down the body to enable a perfect night’s sleep throughout the night. The infusion of gel into the cover creates an open cell structure within the cove which enables an air circulating through it. This airflow wicks away sweat and moisture from the body and creates a very cool and comfortable sleep surface. The firmness level of the cover on the soft side is medium soft, and in combination with this cooling effect, the sleep microenvironment created o top of this sleep system is incredible in terms of comfort and coolness. The Thermo Gel infusion into the material of the cover increases the breathability of the cover and provides excellent body heat dispersal and moisture-wicking capabilities. As such, the sleep surface is moisture-wicking and temperature regulating besides being very comfortable.
Immediately under the top softcover, there is a 3-inch thick layer of copper gel-infused memory foam. This layer has got all the properties and characteristics of memory foam, and on top of these, it has added benefits arising out of copper gel infusion. This layer of memory foam gets compressed under the weight of the body at places where the body rests on the mattress. The other parts of the surface are not depressed. As such, the memory foam layer cradles the body and molds to it. The body conformance of the memory foam layer prevents the body from rolling on the mattress and also relieves pressure points. When the body lies on the mattress, an upward force is applied by the mattress to balance the gravitational pull which tends to pull the body downwards. Thus, pressure points are developed on the body at sensitive areas and hips, shoulders, knees, and heels, etc. bear the burden the most. The memory foam layer relieves these pressure points and takes the stress off them to provide a comfortable sleep environment. The weight of the body is also distributed evenly on the surface of the mattress and is not concentrated on hips, shoulders, heels, etc. which would otherwise lead to the sleeper waking up with numb legs and sore muscles. The even distribution of weight by the memory foam layer enables perfectly comfortable sleep as no pressure points are developed and the various body parts do not develop any pain or ache.
The infusion of copper Gel into the memory foam layer involves the infusion of microscopic copper particles into the cellular structure of memory foam. Copper is an environmentally friendly material, and itis also completely natural. It serves as a nutrient in the different ecosystems and also has a lot of important roles to play inside the human body in terms of cellular functions. It can provide natural protection against bacteria and viruses. It also prevents staining and odors. When the body lies on the mattress, the depression of the memory foam layer enables the copper particles to get closer, and they conduct body heat in such a manner that all excess body heat gets dissipated very quickly. This occurs due to the high level of conductivity of copper. The result is a very clean, bacteria-free and very cool sleep microenvironment on this mattress. The copper gel-infused memory foam layer in this mattress is designed to strengthen when it goes through compression due to body weight. When a sleeper lies on his/her back, side or front, the body is aptly and evenly supported, and this is especially true for the low points. This way, the muscle strain is reduced, and blood circulation is enhanced. The result is a reduction in back and body pain.
The copper gel-infused memory foam layer is immediately followed by a 2-inch Zoned SMT foam layer. SMT is Surface Modification Technology, and it is a patented post-production process which allows for customization on the foam layer to get the best possible zoned support. A very high level of technology is employed in preparing this type of foam layer which acts as a transitionary layer between the copper gel-infused memory foam layer and the core of this mattress. It employs the best of innovative support surface engineering to create this foam layer which is denser than the memory foam layer. The SMT layer permits a multi-zone construction in the support surface which provides firm support as well as effective pressure redistribution at those points where itis required the most. Ts leads to better alignment of the spine and thus better sleep throughout the night. The zoned SMT layer is equipped with deep channels that provide not just a high level of zoned support but also a high level of breathability and thus higher airflow through the core of this mattress.
The core of the mattress consists of a 4.5-inch-thick layer of high-density support foam. It provides the ultimate support to the body and enables maximum control over motion transfer. It also enables the least amount of bounce but still provides the required support. The high-density support foam has got a density higher than 5 lb./ft3, and this means that antisense than the memory foam layer as well as the transitionary SMT zoned layer above it. One cubic foot of the high-density support foam is heavier than 5 lbs. This high-density structure of this support foam in conjunction with the dense structures of the memory foam layer and the zoned SMT support transitionary layer do not allow the dust mites and other allergens like pet dander, mildew, etc. to live and thrive in the mattress. Thus, the mattress is dust mite and allergen-free and as such, it is hypoallergenic. Due to the infusion of copper in the memory foam layers (there are two copper-gel-infused memory foam layers in this mattress), the mattress becomes antimicrobial as well. The antimicrobial and hypoallergenic nature of this mattress provides a very clean, sanitary, cool and comfortable sleep environment for the body.
Immediately under the core mattress, there is a second 1-inch layer of copper gel-infused memory foam which serves to make this mattress a flappable mattress. This second layer of copper gel-infused memory foam layer is immediately followed by a Thermo gel-infused cover similar to the way the top soft part of the mattress is designed and configured. The exception is that this cover at the bottom of the mattress is firm and not medium soft. This allows the mattress to be flipped and those who prefer firm mattresses can always place the mattress with this firm side up. The firm sie has a firmness level of 7 on a scale of 10. The cover has all the properties that the soft side cover has, and it is highly breathable to ensure a rather firm, and comfortably supportive sleep. Those people who prefer firm mattresses feel comfortable on a firm surface, and this mattress allows them the opportunity to enjoy a very sound and cool sleep in a very clean and sanitary sleep microenvironment.

Comfort & Ergonomics
Regardless of whether the mattress is used with the soft side up or the firm side up, it enables all of its properties and characteristics to be availed by the sleeper. With the soft side up, it provides a very soft, and comfortable sleep surface, which is cool due to the high breathability of the cover which has been infused with thermo gel. The Thermo gel-infusion creates an open cell structure within this cover enabling the wicking away of moisture and sweat from the body and also enables quick heat dissipation to keep the body cool on the surface. The copper gel-infused memory foam layer acts against the microbes and viruses and keeps the mattress clean and sanitary. The copper microparticles also enable quick heat dissipation of body heat due to their high level of conductivity. Copper acts a very natural and eco-friendly material which is instrumental in providing an environment that contributes positively to health and wellness.
The mattress also provides quick adjustment of the surface of the mattress to the shape of the body and prevents rolling on the surface. The body does not feel stuck in the mattress and does not sleep hot due to the effect of the copper gel infusion in the memory foam layer and the Thermal gel infusion in the cover. The power of the mattress to keep the body cool is reinforced by the infusions in both the cover and the memory foam layer. The mattress provides pressure point relief and unlike traditional beds which concentrate the weight of the body on some of its parts like the heel, shoulders and hips this mattress enables an even distribution of body weight across the entire surface of the mattress. The muscles do not get sore and thee blood circulation stays enhanced to ensure that the sleeper does not wake up with numb arms or legs.
The excellent ergonomics on this mattress are not just enabled by the memory foam layer but also by the subsequent SMT zoned layer of foam as well as the high-density support foam layer. The zoned SMT foam layer provides support at just the right points and relieves pressure on these zones where the maximum amount of relief is required. This targeted pressure relief and support is the result of the zoned SMT (Surface Modification Technology) which is employed in the transitionary zone SMT support layer of foam. The zoned support is targeted to zones where it is needed the most. The transitionary layer also enables airflow through the core of the mattress to keep this part of the mattress cool, sanitary and clean as well. On an overall, basis, the high breathability of the mattress which results in cool sleep is the result of the thermo-gel infused covers (one on top and one at the bottom), the copper gel-infused memory foam layers (one under the softcover and one under the firm cover) and this zoned support SMT layer of foam.
The high-density support foam acts as the core of the mattress for bot the soft side and the firm side. This part has high density and provides ultimate support to the body regardless of which side it is sleeping on. The support foam is a high-density foam layer with a high enough density to provide a high level of pushback. This push back is unlike that of the traditional spring bed which enables a bounce back which tends to bother the sleeper and often gives a feeling that he/she is being bounced off the mattress. The moderate push back provides adequate support and does not let the body sink into the mattress. At the same time, this dense support foam along with the two copper-infused gel memory foam layers, the two thermo gel-infused covers and the zoned SMT foam layer do not allow the dust mites and allergens to live and thrive in the mattress as their structure is too dense for them to creep in. The copper infusion in the memory foam layers prevents growth of bacteria, and thus, the mattress, on the whole remains clean and sanitary. This enables a very high level of comfort enabling a sleep environment which is clean, cool, comfortable and free of bacteria and allergens. Many people who have allergy issues would find this mattress very useful, and they would be able to sleep comfortably on this mattress without waking up with skin irritations and stuffed noses. The mattress rejuvenates the sleeper and prepares him/her to face the hectic day ahead with full vitality and vigor.
Durability and Warranty
The Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Mattress is a highly durable mattress as it contains all high-quality materials. High technology and innovation are instrumental in imparting the high quality of these materials. The quality starts with the covers of the mattress and goes all the way to its core. Higher quality means higher durability. The coves used in this mattress are thermo gel-infused and this provides an open cell structure to the material they are made of, and the ensuing airflow enables a very clean and sanitary environment. This cleanliness due to the enhanced airflow and the wicking away of sweat and moisture contributes directly to the upkeep and maintenance of the mattress which in turn provide higher durability. The memory foam layers used in this mattress have a dense structure which has open cells due to copper gel infusion. The copper gel-infusion technology ensures natural cleanliness for the memory foam layers as copper occurs naturally in the environment and gets rid of viruses and bacteria. This enables very clean and sanitary memory foam layers which contribute towards increasing its durability. It is noteworthy to state here that the dense structure of memory foam as compared to traditional foam ensures that it would last for a very long time. The denser the foam, the better its quality and higher quality levels mean that it would be durable. This durability is further enhanced by the infusion of copper gel in the memory foam layers.
The zoned SMT foam layer is prepared using highly innovative technology and is engineered to give targeted support to various parts of the body, which require it the most. This foam layer is very dense as well. Its density is in between that of the memory foam layers and the high-density support foam core of the mattress. Thus, it is designed to last for a very long time. On its part, the core of the mattress which has got the highest density foam in all of this mattress, the strength and the robustness of this core ensures that not only would it support the body and the upper layers of the mattress on either side (this mattress is flappable) but also that it would last for a very long time.
The durability of this mattress also depends upon the way it is kept and maintained. The mattress needs to be placed on a solid bed frame base or a foundation base to ensure that it would not sag. It should also be held properly by the bed frame and the foundation and should not be allowed to slide or wobble as this would damage the mattress in the long run. The mattress needs to be vacuum cleaned occasionally, and if cleaning is required, it can be spot cleaned. In case, there is a large spillage of liquid on the mattress, a piece of cloth could be used to ooze the spilled liquid out of the mattress, and then, it can be air-dried. Heat should not be applied as it could affect the pressure-relieving properties of the two memory foam layers. Electric blankets and heating pads must not be used on this mattress. As far as cleaning it is concerned, only water-based products can be used, and no chemicals or bleach should ever be applied.
When the mattress arrives after purchase, it is delivered in a rolled and compressed form. It needs to be placed in an airy room preferably with the fan turned on for at least a few days. This would allow the mattress to off-gas and release all the process air which has been trapped inside it. This process air would get replaced by the cleanroom air, and the mattress would not give out any odor anymore. No bedding should be used during this initial off-gassing period. AS far as expanding to the right size is concerned, this mattress expands within minutes after unpacking.
The mattress carries a lifetime limited warranty. It covers defects due to materials and workmanship. It also covers other defects like sagging (if it is more than 1-inch), splitting of the foam, cracking of foam, loss of shape as well as loss in the height of the mattress. Warranty is however limited to purchasers who purchase it from authorized marketplaces or the manufacturer’s website. The mattress also comes with a 120-night sleep trial. The purchaser can use the mattress for 120 days, and during this period, if he/she is not happy with the mattress, it can be returned at no charge. The manufacturer encourages the purchaser to make a decision after sleeping on the mattress for at least two weeks.
The Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Mattress has two memory foam layers of 2-inches and 1-inch and a core support foam layer of 4.5 inches. There is a 2-inch thick zoned SMT support foam layer as well. The layers make up for 9.5 inches, and then there are two covers on either side, which are thermo gel-infused. Thus, the height of the mattress along with the bedding would be in between 10-11 inches in all. The entire sleep system height would be this
height plus the height of the bed frame base or the foundation base. In case, this comes out to be a bit too high; one can consider using a low foundation or a bed frame. AS far as the available mattress sizes are concerned, it is available in all standard sizes, i.e. Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes. The Twin size is 75 x 39 x 10.5 inches and 40 lbs. in weight and the Twin XL is available in 80 x 38 x 10 inches size and weighs 50 lbs. The Full size weighs 70 lbs. and it is 74 x 54 x 10 inches in size. The Queen size is available with dimensions of 80 x 60 x 10 inches while the King size is 50.8 x 19 x 18.8 inches and weighs 109.3 lbs. Finally, California King size is 84 x 72 x 10.5 inches and weighs 100 lbs.
