Unique Selling Point (USP) of Layla Mattress

Layla mattress is flippable in design with one side being medium plush and the other side being medium firm.

A noticeable commonality in mattresses segment is that a majority of mattresses are designed to offer firmness levels between 6 and 6.5 so as to cater to a wide range of audience.

But if you wish to avail something that is a tad more firm or rather something that is relatively more softer, then you are left with absolutely no option.

However, Layla has come up with this unique and rare design where the mattress is flippable.

  • Yes, on side the surface is relatively firm, perhaps, stands between 6.5 and 7 on a scale of 1 to 10.
  • Other side is medium plush and stands between 5 and 6.5 depending upon the physical built of the sleeper.

And if you still want the standard firmness level in premium mattresses segment, firmness level that stands between 6 and 6.5 then Nectar is the best option.

Copper Infused Foam Vs Gel Infused Foam

Two types of memory foam mattresses are widely popular in the market.

1. Plain memory foam mattresses – When plain memory foams are used as top layers, the mattress tends to retain body heat thus warming up the sleeping surface.

2. Gel memory foam mattresses – However, when cool gel is infused into these top memory foams, the cool gel beads regulate body temperature and keep the mattress sleeping surface cool.

Whereas, for the very first time in mattresses segment, Layla has come with an innovative method of keeping the sleeping surface cool. Instead of using regular cooling gel, Layla has infused copper into the top memory foam.

The copper has several traits attached to it. Apart from regulating body heat and keeping the sleeping surface cool it eliminates bacteria, viruses, mold, spores and fungi.

Motion Isolation

Scenario 1:

When you put Layla mattress on medium plush side and compare it with Nectar then both the mattresses offer the same level of motion transfer.

As you move or roll on these mattresses while asleep, the motion transfer observed in Layla mattress is 5 to 6 inches in radius and the same stands between 4 to 5 inches in radius in case of Nectar mattress.

Scenario 2:

However, when you turn Layla mattress on firmer side, then the motion transfer is bare minimal as the top copper infused layer is just 1 inch in thickness.

This layer is then followed by 4.5 inch thick high density base foam. Hence, the sinkage is hardly couple of inches which absolutely doesn’t transfer up to your sleeping partner.

Where are Layla and Nectar Mattress made?

Although, both these mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified assuring you of adherence to all prescribed safety standards.

But one another major difference is that Layla is “Made in USA” while Nectar is “Made in China”

Warranty and Free Trial Period

While Layla and Nectar offer Lifetime period warranty but Nectar comes with 180 Free night trial and Layla comes with 120 Free night trial.

Night trial period is perhaps one area where Nectar scores better than Layla.


The copper infused memory foam layer in Layla is first of its kind in mattresses segment.

  • Apart from offering a cool sleeping surface it also has certain health benefits associated with it, like enhanced blood circulation.
  • Being a flippable mattress and the two different firmness levels it offers on either side, is another major reason to justify choosing Layla mattress.

Nectar is an affordable mattress in premium mattresses segment and costs around 100 bucks less than Layla. Offers additional 2 months of free night trial period when compared with Layla that offers 120 free night trial period.
