Layla Sleep Copper Infused Memory Foam Queen Mattress

If you’ve never heard of a copper mattress before then consider yourself lucky. Far from being an ordinary mattress, this Layla Memory Foam Mattress is a piece of a unique and interesting product.


Without further ado, let’s check out the construction of this beautiful mattress to know why customers love it. Compared with regular memory foam mattresses in the market, this Layla Memory Foam Mattress contains more layers of materials. But instead of putting up all these layers to create a bulky mattress, Layla built a compact model with 10 inches profile. Starting with its cover, its luxurious fabric with a soft side is designed to provide a couple of benefits for all users. It has a white and grey stitched hexagon pattern and a zipper closure for hassle-free removal. Whenever you need to clean its cover, simply remove it and wash it. Moving on to its layers of materials inside, this mattress has a 3 inches layer of copper gel memory foam. This thick foam layer has an antimicrobial feature that controls odor using copper. Underneath this layer is a 2 inches layer of support foam which keeps the mattress cool and supportive. For a thicker layer of supportive foam, Layla also contains a 4 inches layer of support core foam. Since this is a flippable mattress, you can expect a lot of foam in it. Below its support core foam is another layer of copper gel memory foam that is 1 inch thick. It’s not as soft as the first one but it has the same supportive and antimicrobial features. Finally, its opposite cooling cover is designed to indicate the firm side. Aside from its color which indicates its firmness, all of its other features are the same as the other its opposite side.


Believe it or not, this mattress has a cover that is designed with a soft side. Of course, this affects the firmness of the mattress which has a balanced soft and firm feel. Its first thicker copper gel memory foam has a soft and plush feel to cushion your sinking body. On the other hand, the second layer of memory foam that is a bit thinner has a firm and supportive feel. This memory foam lies above the cooling cover of the mattress which is known as the firm side. If the soft side has a white and grey color, the firm side has a black and grey color. Therefore, you will not be confused about which side is firm or soft.


Its 2 layers of copper gel memory foam provide variable support for areas with deep compression. Its support foam also has a zoned surface modification technology to provide customized support. Of course, this mattress will not be complete without a thick layer of support core foam which ensures its maximum life. This includes providing a maximum motion transfer control and just enough bounce to improve your sleep.

Temperature Regulation

Since memory foams are known for trapping heat which causes discomfort and sweating, Layla built this mattress with cooling properties. Instead of using regular fabric, Layla used a luxury fabric on both sides using thermo-gel cooling technology. Its reactive cooling automatically activates with body temperature to make sure that you are always comfortable in your sleep. Meanwhile, its copper gel memory foam layer has a fast cooling and body heat transfer.  If these layers are still not enough to keep you cool, this mattress still has its support foam for reinforcement. This layer of foam provides maximum airflow through deep channeling so you don’t have to worry about sweating.

Nectar Mattress

Best For:

  • Pregnant sleepers who struggle in sleep
  • Budget shoppers who seek a high-quality mattress
  • Those who need extra comfort and support to recover faster
  • Anyone who suffers from hips and back pain
  • Individuals with small to medium body types

Nectar Twin Mattress

Nectar is one of the few brands that offer just a couple of models only. Still, Nectar makes sure that its products stand out in the market. So, we will find out what’s inside its most popular memory foam mattress.


The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress consists of 4 layers of materials that make up its 11 inches profile. But before we jump there, let’s check out its cover first to see what it can offer. For the fabric, Nectar used a quilted memory foam mattress cover. This Tencel cooling fabric is not only meant to give you a soft surface to sleep on. It can also keep those bedbugs away and contour to your unique body shape.  Under this cover, Nectar used a layer of memory foam which is infused with cooling gel to handle your weight. Compared with other mattresses out there, this is medical-grade Visco elastic memory foam that can guarantee its safety. Its next layer is an adaptive hi-core memory foam which is also referred to as the recovery foam. This 9.2-grade transition foam provides the right amount of bounce in the mattress even without a spring coil unit. To reinforce the previous layers above, Nectar Memory Foam Mattress also has a breathing base layer. The base layer of Nectar Memory Foam Mattress can ensure that with its capacity to stabilize the foam layers above. Lastly, the mattress has the bottom mattress cover to keep your mattress in place.


Since every customer should know how a mattress feels before buying it, you should also know how this mattress feels. This Nectar mattress has a medium-firm memory foam mattress. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 as the softest and 10 as the hardest, it got 6.5 ratings. Therefore, it feels just right to accommodate different kinds of sleepers. If you have existing back or shoulder problems, this Nectar Memory Foam Mattress can help you sleep better. Whether you’re literally under pressure or not, its adaptive foam layers can help relieve pressure points on your body. This includes your hips, shoulders, legs, especially along your spine.


Its gel memory foam layer provides pressure relief by delivering your weight evenly across the mattress. Whether you are a back sleeper, stomach sleeper, or a side sleeper, this Nectar Memory Foam Mattress can conform to your body shape. As expected from a high-quality mattress, this bed can make you feel as if you are floating in sleep. Its adaptive hi-core memory foam can give you the bounce and rebound you need while it supports your body. If you don’t like the feeling of sinking in a quicksand, this layer can save you from that. To make it more supportive, Nectar built this mattress with a solid base layer to have reinforced support.

Temperature Regulation

The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress is protected by an advanced cooling mattress cover that is made with Tencel. Its fabric alone is designed to promote air circulation and wick away heat from the mattress. This quilted mattress cover encases a gel memory foam which also provides a loft, air circulation, and body-contouring comfort. Underneath this cover is another gel-infused memory foam that provides a cooling comfort as your body sinks further. This gel memory foam distributes body heat around the mattress so you can sleep without sweating. At the same time, the base layer of this mattress can


As the highlight of this review, let’s get down to the major differences of these mattresses. When it comes to size, the Nectar is 1 inch thicker than the Layla mattress. However, it weighs 45 pounds (Twin) to 89 pounds (King and California King) only. Meanwhile, the Layla mattress weighs 50 pounds (Twin) to 90 pounds (King and California King).  When it comes to price, Layla costs between $499 and $949 while Nectar costs between $399 and $899. Take note that these figures are discounted already but the difference is still quite big. However, the Layla mattress is flippable compared with the Nectar mattress which makes your investment worth it.  Another thing we noticed is the length of trial nights since both offer free shipping and lifetime warranty. Layla offers 120 trial nights with a money-back guarantee while Nectar offers 365 trial nights. Therefore, you can try the mattress for an entire year to see if it suits you or not. If you want to sleep on quilted memory foam, Nectar can give you that.


If you want a new mattress so bad, you better make the right decision and investment. Check out these guide questions to help make the final choice:

Are you an indecisive type? 

If yes, then it’s better to take advantage of Nectar’s 365 days of trial nights with free returns and lifetime warranty.

Do you want more ways to extend the life of your mattress?

If you can rotate all mattresses to balance its wear and tear, flipping is a different story. Since not all mattresses can be flipped, increasing your budget will already give you one.
