Construction & Materials
The Layla mattress topper comes in different sizes and is shipped compressed in a box.
After receiving the Layla topper at our house and opening it, we noticed a slight off-gassing smell which is totally normal given the all foam construction of this mattress topper and the fact that it comes compressed and wrapped in a plastic package.
However, the odor quickly disappeared after we placed the mattress topper on the bed and allowed it to expand.
The Layla mattress topper is a 2” thick topper featuring copper-infused memory foam just like the Layla mattress. This specially designed copper gel inside the memory foam helps dissipate excessive body heat and keeps you cool and comfortable all night long.
This gel also adds to the overall support that this topper provides by allowing memory foam to tighten up under pressure, which also makes the Layla topper more durable.
The topper has slow response to pressure and copper is also naturally antimicrobial, which means that it blocks and kills bacteria.
The cover of the Layla topper is a soft viscose, lycra, and polyester blend that includes a ThermoGEL and promotes cooling. The stretch-knit fabric of this cover is also woven with copper which helps regulate the temperature of your body and offers a plush and cozy feel.
The cover is also removable and machine washable, which means that you can easily take it off by using a zipper that spans the underside of the cover and wash it when necessary.
The brand highly recommends dry cleaning, but you can also wash it in a washing machine on a gentle cycle by using a mild detergent and cool water.
Firmness and Comfort
Toppers are meant to change the feel of your mattress, and how they will feel completely depends on the beds you put them on. The same goes for this mattress topper, although we can say that it is more on a soft-medium side.
This 2-inch foam topper is designed to make your bed plusher. It will allow you to experience that hug on the surface typical for memory foam and conform to your unique body curves while reducing motion transfer.
It has a slow response to pressure, which means that there will be no additional bounce, but you will feel that your body is comfortably cradled instead. Regardless of this, it will allow you to change positions and get in and out of bed during the night easily.
The topper is not too thick, so as long as the surface beneath is either bouncy or firm, you won’t have difficulties moving around in bed.
Besides this, the Layla mattress topper works perfectly for all sleeping positions, especially side sleeping. We generally prefer side sleeping and we felt excellent pressure relief at our shoulders and hips.
The topper cradled my shoulders and hips to prevent the appearance of pressure points or any other kind of discomfort and worked perfectly with the mattress below to support our combined weight as a couple and distribute it evenly across the bed.
Besides this, the Layla mattress topper sleeps incredibly cool due to its unique construction and design. Often, memory foam can trap heat and cause that sticky sweaty feel, but this was not the case with this mattress topper.
A special copper gel inside the foam works perfectly with the copper woven into the cover to prevent heat retention and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the whole night.
In addition, ThermoGEL aids in cooling and keeps the surface of this mattress topper cool and pleasant to the touch.
Price & Warranty
The Layla mattress topper comes in at only $269 for a Queen, which is an extremely reasonable price given the quality materials and design of this mattress topper.
Besides an excellent price, the Layla mattress topper comes with free shipping, within the contiguous United States. Delivery is also available to Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada for an additional fee.
Another great thing about Layla is that it offers you a 120-night trial period to try out this mattress topper and see how well it works for you before you have to make any decisions.
The brand also issues a 5-year warranty that covers splitting in the foam and certain defects in the cover.
