Tomorrow Sleep vs. Layla
Purchasing an ideal mattress these days is easier than ever before with online mattress retailers such as Tomorrow Sleep and Layla Sleep.
Both Tomorrow Sleep owned by Serta Simmons Bedding and Layla Sleep are recent entrants to the market, and they are bringing many innovations to the mattress industry such as the mattresses that we will be reviewing in today’s comparison.
Construction and Materials
The Tomorrow Sleep mattress is a 10″ hybrid pocketed coil and foam mattress made up of 4 layers. It comes in 2 firmness options Medium Soft and Medium Firm, and the one we tested is Medium Soft.
- 1″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of 4.8lb Visco Elastic memory foam designed to distribute your body weight and provide pressure relief. It is coated with phase-change temperature regulating material that pulls the heat away or keeps it close to your body.
- 2″ Support / Cooling Layer – This layer is 2″ of 2.5lb gel infused memory foam that provides additional support to your body and reduces heat retention.
- 6″ Support Layer – This layer is made up of 6″ of pocketed innerspring coils and a 3″ thick ventilated side rail system around the coils that promotes airflow through the sides of the mattress for additional cooling.
- 1″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 1″ of high-density base foam that serves as the foundation for the coil system.
The cover is made from the phase-change regulating material with breathable open weave, and a smooth and soft finish that adds to the comfort and airflow.
Firmness and Support
Tomorrow Sleep comes in two firmness options, and the Medium Soft model that we tested scores 5-6 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest. Its top comfort layer provides a soft luxurious feel, and the underlying coils and foam provide a good support underneath which makes this mattress ideal for heavier sleepers.
The Tomorrow Sleep mattress offers good support in all sleeping positions. It provides you with enough give in the top comfort layer to support your hips and shoulders, and with enough firmness when you switch to your back or stomach.
The Tomorrow Sleep offers a lot of comfort as well. Coils combined with the gel memory foam top layer offer a good push-back and bounce, and provide your body with a nice contour and hug. This mattress is supportive and allows you to sleep soundly in all sleeping positions, while the soft cover keeps you cool and adds to the comfort.
The Tomorrow Sleep does a good job in reducing heat due to the gel foam layer in the top comfort layer combined with the phase-change material in the covers. The nature of its innerspring coils allows a good airflow, and perforated edge panels around the coils contribute to this.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
With the Tomorrow Sleep, sinkage is reduced to the minimum although it is only 10″ in height. The support coils regulate sinking, while the edge support layer incorporated within this mattress provides a good edge support and prevents you from rolling off of the bed. As it is a hybrid coil mattress, it has a certain degree of motion transfer, but nothing too extreme like it is the case with some competing beds.
Smell / Off-Gassing
The Tomorrow Sleep gets high marks for not having any noticeable smell upon opening the box. Hybrid coil/foam construction of this mattress minimizes the degree of off-gassing that all foam mattresses usually have.

Construction and Materials
Unlike the Tomorrow Sleep that is pocketed coil and foam hybrid, the Layla is all-foam 10-inch mattress with 4 layers of copper-infused memory foam and base support foam. There is a core inner support foam layer and a comfort layer on each side of the mattress, which provide the different firmness settings when flipped over.
- 3″ Comfort Layer (Soft setting) – 3″ of high-density copper infused memory foam that provides cooling and improves blood circulation
- 2″ Support Layer – 2″ of convoluted foam that provides airflow and support for the comfort layers on each side
- 4″ Base Support Foam – 4″ of 2.o ILD Poly Base foam that provides overall support for the mattress in both comfort configurations.
- 1″ Comfort Layer (Firm setting) – 1″ of the same high-density copper infused memory foam as 3″ layer.
The cover is soft and comfortable, lined with THERMOgel technology that causes the bed to react to your body’s sweat in order to keep you cool at night as well.
Firmness and Support
This mattress is unique in that you can go from a soft feel to a firm feel in the same bed simply by unzipping the cover and turning the mattress over. The Layla comes by default in the softer configuration from the company, which is around 5-6 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest. When we unzipped the mattress and flipped it over to the firmer side the feel was around 8 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest.
The mattress does a great job at supporting both my lighter weight and the heavier weight of my partner without the feeling of being trapped in foam. It is a universal model that will satisfy just about all firmness preferences of the sleepers, from those that like the softer/medium feel to those wanting the firmer one.
As for the comfort, the Layla mattress is a rather comfortable as it can satisfy both softer and firmer preferences of the sleepers and provide them with a luxurious feel.
Its soft cover and the all foam construction on the soft firmness allow you to sink in the mattress to a certain degree but not feel trapped. Similarly, if you prefer a firmer mattress, you just have to unzip and flip it over and you will be provided with a firmer comfort level.
Like the Tomorrow Sleep, the Layla does a great job at sleeping cool, and it is far above almost every other mattress on the market in this category.
All foam beds usually lead to the build-up of heat and the feeling of stickiness, but with the Layla, there is no such problem due to the use of copper-infused foam in its construction. The THERMOgel infused cover contributes to not sweating when sleeping as well.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Sinkage and motion transfer depend on which firmness setting you configure the Layla to. As sinkage is largely weight dependant, Andrew sunk down more on the softer side than I did, but this is something he enjoys as he prefers the feeling of his body being contoured in foam which helps support his back and shoulders as well.
A firm setting of the mattress causes less sinkage and the edge support is also better on the firm setting than the soft for the same reason. The Layla has a good edge support and Andrew did not compress or sink down to the foundation as it often happens with other memory foam mattresses.
When it comes to motion transfer, the Layla causes less motion transfer than the hybrid Tomorrow Sleep mattress. In fact, motion transfer with the Layla is very minimal on the soft side as well compared to the firm which is a great benefit for couples.
Smell / Off-Gassing
The Layla releases a minimal amount of smell upon opening of the box, which is quite surprising given the fact that it is an all-foam mattress. All the smell that is present dissipates within a few hours.
