SINKAGE TEST

For many people buying a mattress it will be important to know whether they are going to feel like they are sitting on top of or sinking into bed. In order to get a better idea of how someone might sink into a mattress, I use four balls of varying sizes and densities (a 6 lb medicine ball, a 10 lb steel ball, a 50 lb medicine ball, and a 100 lb medicine ball) and place them on the mattress to measure how much they compress the surface.

==> Click here to see the DEAL of the DAY

I switched to lying on my stomach and found that the firm side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my hips from sinking into the mattress and my spine aligned. This combined with the low pressure on my chest for easier breathing, leads me to believe that stomach sleepers would probably prefer the firm side of the Layla.

FIRMNESS

When I pressed into the soft side of the mattress I found that the memory foam compressed pretty easily. As I pushed further into the mattress my hands sunk pretty far into the construction of the Layla and could feel the memory contouring to my hands.

MOTION TRANSFER

If you are sharing the mattress with a partner, you will want to know what it will feel like when the other person gets into and out of bed or tosses and turns during the night. This next test is helpful in showing the intensity of motion that is detectable from one side of the mattress to the other.

I performed this test on the soft side of the Layla first and was really impressed with the results on the 4 inch drop. This drop simulates someone changing positions on the other side of the bed and the results graphic above shows the Layla did a great job isolating motion. As expected there was slightly larger disturbance felt for the 8 and 12 inch drops, but these are some of the best results I have seen while performing reviews.

Firm Comfort– The comfort layer of the firm side of the Layla is made of 1 inch of the same copper infused memory foam as the soft side of the mattress. With only an inch of memory foam, the sleeper won’t sink far into the layla with this side up, but will still feel some contouring. Another reason this side will feel firmer is that there is no transition between the comfort and support layers.

During this review I take a look at the double-sided Layla mattress which allows sleepers to choose between different firmness levels, depending on which side they choose to face up. Throughout this review I will describe the performance of the Layla for both the firm and soft sides of the mattress. If you’re interested in learning more about the Layla mattresses, read on for my full review!

For this test I dropped a 10 lb steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches and measured the disturbance on the other side of the mattress. This should be pretty intuitive: the bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

It is notable that there isn’t a massive difference between the firmness levels of the two sides of the Layla. With some flippable mattresses there will be a much wider variance in firmness, however the Layla does seem to sit just on either side of medium firmness.

Up in the sinkage test I measured the results for the soft side of the Layla.

Support– What would be considered the base or support center of the Layla mattress is made of a high density (2 lb) poly foam. It is a firm layer that provides support regardless of the firmness that the sleeper has chosen. This portion of the mattress has a quick response to pressure and gives the Layla its shape.

I moved onto my stomach and with my weight evenly distributed the pressure map shows low pressure across my entire body. Stomach sleepers tend to like firmer mattresses as they keep their hips from sinking, which can lead to lower back pain. I did find that my hips sank in a bit on this side of the mattress, so if you are a strict stomach sleeper you may prefer the firm side of the Layla.

These different sizes, weights, and densities help to imitate different body parts or different sized people to show how far into a mattress you may sink.

CONSTRUCTION

The Layla is an all foam mattress consisting of four different layers. As I mentioned before, it is a double sided mattress which allows the sleeper to choose between a firm or soft feel depending on their preference.

After I flipped the mattress and lied down on my back the pressure map again shows low pressure across my body. There was a slight feeling of contour from the memory foam layer but, with the quick transition to the firm support layer, this side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my spine aligned. Even though there was a slight memory foam feeling, I didn’t sink in too far so I didn’t feel stuck in the mattress on this side.

The firm side of the mattress also performed well on the motion transfer portion of the review. The 4 and 8 inch drops show similar results on the seismometer readout above and both are well below the average disturbance when compared to the same drops on other mattresses. The 12 inch drop showed a larger disturbance, but this is still a good result for this drop.

Transition– Below the comfort layer is a 2 inch layer of poly foam (1.8 lb density). This layer begins to add a little bit of support to the mattress and acts as a transition layer from the soft comfort layer above to the firm support core below. I should also note that this layer is convoluted (with an egg crate design) to allow air to flow through the mattress for temperature regulation.

Soft Comfort– The comfort layer for the softer side of the mattress consists of 3 inches of copper infused memory foam (3.5 lb density). This is a pretty thick layer of memory foam, which is a soft material that will allow the sleeper to sink in for pressure relief. This material has a slow response to pressure and provides a contouring feel to the mattress. At times memory foam can have a reputation for trapping body heat, so Layla included the copper infusion to help with cooling.

When pressing into the firm side of the mattress there is still some contouring from the memory foam. The noticeable thing about pushing into the firm side is the quick transition from the soft memory foam to the firm support center beneath it, which is a noticeable change from the soft side of the Layla.

Because of differences in size and body type everyone will feel the firmness of a mattress a bit differently. Rather than giving just my opinion on the overall firmness level of Layla, I enlisted three other people to give their opinion. This will give you a better sense of the firmness range you can expect from both sides of the mattress.

When I rolled onto my side I quickly pushed through the thin layer of memory foam and began to interact with the support layer. This firmer feel is generally not great for side sleepers and I think strict or bigger side sleepers will prefer the softer side of the Layla.

PRESSURE MAP

Instead of just describing what it feels like to lie on a Layla mattress I wanted to give a visual representation of where someone may feel pressure points while lying on it. To do this I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my back, side, and stomach.

There was a pretty large range on the firmness of the firm side of the Layla, with scores ranging from 5.5/ 10 to 7/10. I believe the variance in response from testers is due to the amount they felt they were sinking into the support layer of the Layla. I personally felt that the firm side came in at a 6.5/ 10 as it allowed me to sink into the memory foam a bit, but the dense poly foam beneath provided good support.

Once I rolled onto my side I began to dig a bit further into the mattress as there was a higher weight concentration over a lower surface area. Side sleepers can sometimes have issues with pressure points forming at the shoulders and hips but the pressure map results show only slightly raised levels of pressure in those areas. Thick layers of memory foam, like the one on the soft side of the Layla, are generally a positive for side sleepers as they allow the sleeper to sink into the mattress for pressure relief. I found this side of the mattress to be pretty comfortable while lying on my side.

In general a mattress with a 6.5/ 10 on the firmness scale is considered medium firmness. The soft side of the Layla came in at an average of 5.5/ 10, showing that the Sleepopolis testers found it to be as advertised.

Up in the pressure map test was the soft side of the mattress and I began on my back. In this position my weight was pretty evenly distributed and the results above show low pressure across my body. When lying in this position I could feel myself sinking into the memory foam and it began to contour to my body. The memory foam has a slow response to pressure, so I felt like changing positions took a little bit of added effort on this side of the mattress.

Cover– The Layla cover is made of a soft polyester blend that I found to have a bit of a cozy feeling to it. Along with the soft feel, the cover has a gel infusion to help with temperature regulation and cooling. I should also note that the cover is fully removable for dry cleaning.

6 lb medicine ball: 1.5 inches of sinkage.
10 lb steel ball: 2.5 inches of sinkage.
50 lb medicine ball: 5 inches of sinkage.
100 lb medicine ball: 6.5 inches of sinkage.
Next up in the sinkage test was the firm side of the mattress.

Memory Foam– Both the firm and the soft comfort layers of the Layla use copper infused memory foam to provide pressure relief. This material allows the sleeper to sink in and provides the classic memory foam feel of contouring to the body.
Sleep Cool– The Layla has a few different components in the materials used in the construction of the mattress that have cooling properties. These include the gel infusion in the cover as well as the copper infusion in the memory foam of the comfort layers, which help with temperature regulation.
Flippable Option– The Layla could be a good fit if you’re not sure which firmness level is right for you and want two shots at getting it. Another possible benefit of a flippable mattress is for use in a guest room where there will be sleepers with different preferences on the mattress depending on the occasion.

Now that we’ve taken a deep dive into the Layla mattress it’s time to discuss who it would be a good fit for.

Firm Comfort– The comfort layer of the firm side of the Layla is made of 1 inch of the same copper infused memory foam as the soft side of the mattress. With only an inch of memory foam, the sleeper won’t sink far into the layla with this side up, but will still feel some contouring. Another reason this side will feel firmer is that there is no transition between the comfort and support layers.

During this review I take a look at the double-sided Layla mattress which allows sleepers to choose between different firmness levels, depending on which side they choose to face up. Throughout this review I will describe the performance of the Layla for both the firm and soft sides of the mattress. If you’re interested in learning more about the Layla mattresses, read on for my full review!

For this test I dropped a 10 lb steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches and measured the disturbance on the other side of the mattress. This should be pretty intuitive: the bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

It is notable that there isn’t a massive difference between the firmness levels of the two sides of the Layla. With some flippable mattresses there will be a much wider variance in firmness, however the Layla does seem to sit just on either side of medium firmness.

Up in the sinkage test I measured the results for the soft side of the Layla.

Support– What would be considered the base or support center of the Layla mattress is made of a high density (2 lb) poly foam. It is a firm layer that provides support regardless of the firmness that the sleeper has chosen. This portion of the mattress has a quick response to pressure and gives the Layla its shape.

I moved onto my stomach and with my weight evenly distributed the pressure map shows low pressure across my entire body. Stomach sleepers tend to like firmer mattresses as they keep their hips from sinking, which can lead to lower back pain. I did find that my hips sank in a bit on this side of the mattress, so if you are a strict stomach sleeper you may prefer the firm side of the Layla.

These different sizes, weights, and densities help to imitate different body parts or different sized people to show how far into a mattress you may sink.

CONSTRUCTION

The Layla is an all foam mattress consisting of four different layers. As I mentioned before, it is a double sided mattress which allows the sleeper to choose between a firm or soft feel depending on their preference.

After I flipped the mattress and lied down on my back the pressure map again shows low pressure across my body. There was a slight feeling of contour from the memory foam layer but, with the quick transition to the firm support layer, this side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my spine aligned. Even though there was a slight memory foam feeling, I didn’t sink in too far so I didn’t feel stuck in the mattress on this side.

The firm side of the mattress also performed well on the motion transfer portion of the review. The 4 and 8 inch drops show similar results on the seismometer readout above and both are well below the average disturbance when compared to the same drops on other mattresses. The 12 inch drop showed a larger disturbance, but this is still a good result for this drop.

Transition– Below the comfort layer is a 2 inch layer of poly foam (1.8 lb density). This layer begins to add a little bit of support to the mattress and acts as a transition layer from the soft comfort layer above to the firm support core below. I should also note that this layer is convoluted (with an egg crate design) to allow air to flow through the mattress for temperature regulation.

Soft Comfort– The comfort layer for the softer side of the mattress consists of 3 inches of copper infused memory foam (3.5 lb density). This is a pretty thick layer of memory foam, which is a soft material that will allow the sleeper to sink in for pressure relief. This material has a slow response to pressure and provides a contouring feel to the mattress. At times memory foam can have a reputation for trapping body heat, so Layla included the copper infusion to help with cooling.

When pressing into the firm side of the mattress there is still some contouring from the memory foam. The noticeable thing about pushing into the firm side is the quick transition from the soft memory foam to the firm support center beneath it, which is a noticeable change from the soft side of the Layla.

Because of differences in size and body type everyone will feel the firmness of a mattress a bit differently. Rather than giving just my opinion on the overall firmness level of Layla, I enlisted three other people to give their opinion. This will give you a better sense of the firmness range you can expect from both sides of the mattress.

When I rolled onto my side I quickly pushed through the thin layer of memory foam and began to interact with the support layer. This firmer feel is generally not great for side sleepers and I think strict or bigger side sleepers will prefer the softer side of the Layla.

PRESSURE MAP

Instead of just describing what it feels like to lie on a Layla mattress I wanted to give a visual representation of where someone may feel pressure points while lying on it. To do this I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my back, side, and stomach.

There was a pretty large range on the firmness of the firm side of the Layla, with scores ranging from 5.5/ 10 to 7/10. I believe the variance in response from testers is due to the amount they felt they were sinking into the support layer of the Layla. I personally felt that the firm side came in at a 6.5/ 10 as it allowed me to sink into the memory foam a bit, but the dense poly foam beneath provided good support.

Once I rolled onto my side I began to dig a bit further into the mattress as there was a higher weight concentration over a lower surface area. Side sleepers can sometimes have issues with pressure points forming at the shoulders and hips but the pressure map results show only slightly raised levels of pressure in those areas. Thick layers of memory foam, like the one on the soft side of the Layla, are generally a positive for side sleepers as they allow the sleeper to sink into the mattress for pressure relief. I found this side of the mattress to be pretty comfortable while lying on my side.

In general a mattress with a 6.5/ 10 on the firmness scale is considered medium firmness. The soft side of the Layla came in at an average of 5.5/ 10, showing that the Sleepopolis testers found it to be as advertised.

mattress layaway 46203

Up in the pressure map test was the soft side of the mattress and I began on my back. In this position my weight was pretty evenly distributed and the results above show low pressure across my body. When lying in this position I could feel myself sinking into the memory foam and it began to contour to my body. The memory foam has a slow response to pressure, so I felt like changing positions took a little bit of added effort on this side of the mattress.

Cover– The Layla cover is made of a soft polyester blend that I found to have a bit of a cozy feeling to it. Along with the soft feel, the cover has a gel infusion to help with temperature regulation and cooling. I should also note that the cover is fully removable for dry cleaning.

6 lb medicine ball: 1.5 inches of sinkage.
10 lb steel ball: 2.5 inches of sinkage.
50 lb medicine ball: 5 inches of sinkage.
100 lb medicine ball: 6.5 inches of sinkage.
Next up in the sinkage test was the firm side of the mattress.

Memory Foam– Both the firm and the soft comfort layers of the Layla use copper infused memory foam to provide pressure relief. This material allows the sleeper to sink in and provides the classic memory foam feel of contouring to the body.
Sleep Cool– The Layla has a few different components in the materials used in the construction of the mattress that have cooling properties. These include the gel infusion in the cover as well as the copper infusion in the memory foam of the comfort layers, which help with temperature regulation.
Flippable Option– The Layla could be a good fit if you’re not sure which firmness level is right for you and want two shots at getting it. Another possible benefit of a flippable mattress is for use in a guest room where there will be sleepers with different preferences on the mattress depending on the occasion.

Now that we’ve taken a deep dive into the Layla mattress it’s time to discuss who it would be a good fit for. mattress layaway 46203

Can you use an electric blanket on a memory foam mattress?

NECTAR Foam

Set the temperature setting on your electric blanket. Remember that a memory foam mattress absorbs heat.

==> Click here to see the DEAL of the Day

Test the temperature on the lowest heat settings first before progressing to higher ones. The lower heat setting will have a more effective impact on a memory foam mattress than a traditional one because the memory foam will absorb the heat from the electric blanket.

Safety – Flammability

There is no safety problem such as flammability with a decent memory foam mattress or topper (as contrasted with one of the cheap egg-crate type foams).

For some people, having an electric blanket gives the added warmth that they need. With foam for bed mattresses, you might feel a little trepidation about trying it.

As we all know foam for bed mattresses best strength is that they utilize the heat in bed. This results in a bed that fits your best sleep position and gets you the best rest.

The question is, could outside heat mess up that equation? Well, briefly put: you can use an electric blanket even with foam for bed mattresses.

There are sort of two minds on the subject, but our best research indicates it should be fine.

Nectar Summer Sale

If you’re someone who likes the comfort of an electric blanket but worries about how it could affect your mattress, here are some safe steps so that you know you’re doing it correctly and can sleep in peace.

The best part about using foam for bed mattresses with your electric blanket? It’s only three easy steps.

Can you use an electric blanket on a memory foam mattress?

Step 1: Prep the mattress

A Nectar mattress features a tencel cooling cover that rests between your mattress and the sheets. Plug the electric blanket in and put it on top of the already sheeted mattress.

You should also add another blanket between your body and the electric blanket so that this is indirect heat and you don’t have the blanket touching bare skin. This isn’t just important for memory foam mattresses, it’s important every time you use an electric blanket.

Step 2: Set a low Temperature

Since our foam for bed mattresses are designed to contour to your body with heat, the less you turn up the heat on your blanket, the better it will work. Test your settings on the lowest level and gradually work your way up as you go.

The lower settings will have this more effective impact because the memory foam will not be absorbing as much heat on those settings. Allow the blanket time to heat before turning up the settings– too fast and you won’t get an accurate reading on what’s happening in bed.

Step 3: Use a Timer

Whether you have foam for bed mattresses or not, it’s always supremely important to use a timer with your electric blanket. Don’t leave it on all night, it is a fire risk and could injure you in severe cases. Consult the manufacturer’s manual if you’re not sure about the functions of your blanket. Usually just ten minutes of warmth is enough to get the job done.

There you have it, a safe and effective guide for using an electric blanket with Nectar’s foam for bed mattresses. We ‘d argue that a Nectar is so good at getting you to bed, that you might even be able to ditch the cumbersome electric blanket before too long anyway! Happy sleeping.

Memory Foam Durability with Added Heat

There seem to be two schools of thought on using heated mattress pads with memory foam. Some people say the memory foam mattress won’t support the body
properly if it is extra warm. Experts states on their web site that they do not recommend using electric blankets or mattress pads because the “exposure.

Can you use an electric blanket on a memory foam mattress?

To much direct heat over extended periods of time can cause damage to the material”.

Experts further suggests that if at bedtime your mattress is too cold, try turning up the bedroom thermostat for twenty to thirty minutes before going to bed. Once you are in bed, the mattress will warm up quickly in response to your body heat.

==> NECTAR vs DreamCloud

If you do choose to use an electric blanket to warm your mattress before bedtime, we recommend that you turn it off after 30 minutes to avoid overexposing the material to high heat.

Place the electric blanket atop the sheets on your memory foam mattress and plug the blanket into an electrical outlet. Use an extra blanket atop your sheets and beneath the electric blanket for a more comfortable source of heat.

Replace your old bed

Conclusion.

Since some memory foam manufacturers say no and some say yes, you will have to make the final decision whether to go with the heated pad on the memory foam. Sorry we couldn’t be more scientific or definitive.

Turn off the blanket when your bed reaches the desired warmth or adjust your electric blanket settings to automatically turn off after a certain time period. If your electric blanket doesn’t feature a timer, it should automatically turn off after 10 hours of operation; most newer electric blankets feature this safety feature.

You might want to consult your manufacturer’s manual to see if yours automatically turns off so you can sleep worry-free in case you forget to turn off your electric blanket.

SINKAGE TEST

For many people buying a mattress it will be important to know whether they are going to feel like they are sitting on top of or sinking into bed. In order to get a better idea of how someone might sink into a mattress, I use four balls of varying sizes and densities (a 6 lb medicine ball, a 10 lb steel ball, a 50 lb medicine ball, and a 100 lb medicine ball) and place them on the mattress to measure how much they compress the surface.

==> Click here to see the DEAL of the DAY

I switched to lying on my stomach and found that the firm side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my hips from sinking into the mattress and my spine aligned. This combined with the low pressure on my chest for easier breathing, leads me to believe that stomach sleepers would probably prefer the firm side of the Layla.

FIRMNESS

When I pressed into the soft side of the mattress I found that the memory foam compressed pretty easily. As I pushed further into the mattress my hands sunk pretty far into the construction of the Layla and could feel the memory contouring to my hands.

MOTION TRANSFER

If you are sharing the mattress with a partner, you will want to know what it will feel like when the other person gets into and out of bed or tosses and turns during the night. This next test is helpful in showing the intensity of motion that is detectable from one side of the mattress to the other.

I performed this test on the soft side of the Layla first and was really impressed with the results on the 4 inch drop. This drop simulates someone changing positions on the other side of the bed and the results graphic above shows the Layla did a great job isolating motion. As expected there was slightly larger disturbance felt for the 8 and 12 inch drops, but these are some of the best results I have seen while performing reviews.

Are memory foam mattresses flammable?

To much direct heat over extended periods of time can cause damage to the material”.

Experts further suggests that if at bedtime your mattress is too cold, try turning up the bedroom thermostat for twenty to thirty minutes before going to bed. Once you are in bed, the mattress will warm up quickly in response to your body heat.

If you do choose to use an electric blanket to warm your mattress before bedtime, we recommend that you turn it off after 30 minutes to avoid overexposing the material to high heat.

Place the electric blanket atop the sheets on your memory foam mattress and plug the blanket into an electrical outlet. Use an extra blanket atop your sheets and beneath the electric blanket for a more comfortable source of heat.

Replace your old bed

Conclusion.

Since some memory foam manufacturers say no and some say yes, you will have to make the final decision whether to go with the heated pad on the memory foam. Sorry we couldn’t be more scientific or definitive.

Turn off the blanket when your bed reaches the desired warmth or adjust your electric blanket settings to automatically turn off after a certain time period. If your electric blanket doesn’t feature a timer, it should automatically turn off after 10 hours of operation; most newer electric blankets feature this safety feature.

You might want to consult your manufacturer’s manual to see if yours automatically turns off so you can sleep worry-free in case you forget to turn off your electric blanket.

The worry is certainly a legitimate one, as we invest almost one-third of our lives in bed on a mattress. In addition to, all frequently some brand-new product or item is apparently attempting to eliminate us.

Memory Foam Mattress Contents: are the threats actual or overstated?

Are the chemicals in your life freaking you out or have you located on your own questioning if items like memory foam bed mattress are risk-free? If you have actually been checking out this sort of mattress or other, you could be questioning whether chemicals as well as smells might stand for an actual threat.

An Appearance Inside Memory Foam Cushion

Exactly what are these points made of? Memory foam beds all have 2 core elements: a polyurethane memory foam layer and also a polyurethane foam core layer. These layers are covered in some sort of textile, and also all cushions need to additionally have flameproofing of some type to satisfy government safety and security regulations.

Exactly what are the threats of VOCs as well as Off-Gassing?

One of the most hyped risk bordering cushions constructed from memory foam stays “VOCs” and also “off-gassing”. Both terms describe the exact same sensation of chemicals damaging down as well as distributing right into the air, which some have actually credited to allergies, taking a breath problems as well as contaminant build-up. Memory foam and also all polyurethane-containing and also or else produced items could have a “brand-new” smell, normally most visible the initial couple of weeks

From fire resistants to lathering representatives, the active ingredients made use of on some memory foam beds could absolutely increase some brows. Several sites go over contaminants and also various other prospective troubles produced by artificial chemicals which has actually brought the concern to the center.

Brominated fire retardants/Polybrominated diphenyl ethers/PBDEs– describes a team important that could be made use of to withstand fires. The variants verified to be cancer causing have actually been terminated in the United States because 2005.
Cotton treated with boric acid– feasible body organ poisoning.

Chlorinated tris (TDCPP)– Feasible neurotoxin, endocrine disruptor and also health hazard. Usual fire resistant, yet was lately the factor for a big baby crib mattress claim in The golden state.
Woollen– all-natural woollen is a feasible fire resistant, though typically out memory foam beds.
Modacrylic fiber– includes antimony oxide, a health hazard.
Melamine material– consists of formaldehyde.
Decabromodiphenyl Oxide– loss of hair, neurological results, feasible health hazard.
Kevlar– solid fibers, not all-natural yet safe.
Alessandra material– covered fiberglass fibers, could be risk-free yet might have modacrylic fiber.
Rayon treated with silica– non hazardous, rayon is stemmed from bamboo pulp and also silica from glass/sand.
The worrying poisoning of these chemicals in the fire obstacles as well as various other products has actually triggered some brand-new reasoning on fire resistants.

Feasible Ingredients/Byproducts of Worry

Which active ingredients are triggering all the difficulty? There are a few other chemicals that could be in memory foam, nevertheless the components utilized in a certain brand name’s memory foam are thought about profession trick and also are not called for to be launched. Usually, determining the elements is difficult.

Since polyurethane foams are generally combustible, all need to be treated with a chemical or a fireproof material. Producers are not needed to divulge just how they accomplish fire resistance, so it might be not be very easy to obtain this info from much less clear firms. Several of the chemicals utilized could be poisonous.

Are memory foam mattresses flammable?

Often, VOC dangers are greater in the raw products made use of to produce steady items like foams compared to in the completed item itself. Similar to memory foam, as soon as the chemical elements are incorporated right into a supported item, the VOC launch is lessened. Unreacted polymers as well as various other elements like adhesives and also fire resistants could position sticking around smells as well as solid aromas as well.

Memory Foam & Polyurethane Foam Parts

Polyols– the binder/bulk component. Typically made up of oil oil-derived components, yet might additionally consist of herb resources like soy or castor beans.
Diisocyanates– the responsive active ingredient. Responds with the polyols as well as blowing representative to create an adaptable polyurethane foam. One of the most typically utilized resources are MDI as well as TDI, which alone in raw kinds could create breathing as well as facial sensitization and also might be cancer causing. MDI is considered the much safer as well as much less hazardous choice, and also is recognized to be the least dangerous natural isocyanate. The key threat with these substances is throughout production; after responding they are inert however could offgas.
Blowing Brokers– presents carbon to develop the foam. Utilized to utilize CFCs, though today producers could utilize water, HFC or various other representatives.

Low-level VOCs are hard for scientists to research as well as evaluate because of their universality and also the moment framework that would certainly be called for to analyze impacts (it is likewise difficult to separate VOCs as well as their prospective results from each product we run into). Alone, their influence varies from risk-free to hazardous inning accordance with MSDS. A number of disappear considerable compared to a smell, as well as people as well as plants launch sorts of VOCs as a component of organic procedures.

Some brand names could consist of various other products too such as gel or gel-infused foam, latex foam, or cushioning from polyester, woollen or cotton. Lots of people are rather acquainted with these sorts of products. The elements individuals are normally worried concerning are the memory foam itself and also fire-proofing chemicals, which we will certainly take a better take a look at below.

Not all foams are the exact same. Plant-based memory foams, like those from Amerisleep, emit less VOCs compared to cushions made from artificial foams.

The term VOCs is brief for unstable natural substances. VOCs are called such due to the fact that they are unsteady and also damage down or deteriorate at space temperature level, launching smells as they do. You are currently accustomed to VOCs as well as their smells if you have actually ever before scented fresh paint, brand-new automobiles, brand-new furnishings, some brand-new clothing, as well as thousands of various other house as well as commercial items.

Methylene dianiline/ MDA– believed health hazard, eye and also skin toxic irritant, liver and also thyroid damages with intake. Home items create extremely reduced degrees, best threat is throughout production.
Vinilideine chloride– eye as well as breathing inflammation, feasible health hazard, body organ damages. Main danger is throughout production.
Methyl benzene– breathing could influence nerve system.
Dimethylformamide– body organ damages feasible, as well as feasible health hazard, though key threat is throughout production.
Acetone– poisonous when inhaled in huge quantities, yet restricted results with reduced direct exposure.
Methylene chloride– a solvent, mucous membrane layer toxic irritant and also possible health hazard. Usage has actually decreased over the last few years as a result of EU limitations and also contamination guidelines.
Formaldehyde– commonly not contributed to foams, yet could result as a by-product of chain reactions or adhesives.
Hardly Ever Made Use Of or Outlawed:
1,1,1,2 Tetrachoroethane– a feasible health hazard and also root cause of body organ damages with long-lasting direct exposure, however hardly ever made use of in the United States.
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)– made use of as a blowing representative to earn the product foam. Contamination guidelines (the Montreal Method) have greatly limited this as well as various other poisonous halogens in the United States given that the 1990s. Suppliers could utilize various other gases or pressurized lathering systems rather.
Flame-Proofing Techniques
Often items created to safeguard us from one sort of damage could have various other unwell impacts. Fire obstacles in some cushions are such items. Fire resistant, some have harmful chemicals.

All cushions offered in the USA need to have the ability to hold up against an open fire for a collection amount of time, each government standards. This step is developed to lower mattress fires as well as enhance customer safety and security. Not all fire resistant products are secure for human beings to be about.

Right here are chemicals that could be or have actually been located in memory foam as well as prospective problems. Keep in mind that each producer utilizes their very own “dish”, so these do not put on all lines.

” As opposed to including brand-new fire resistant chemicals that inevitably might be revealed to trigger illness, we need to be asking whether we should utilize these chemicals or if there are various other methods to accomplish comparable fire safety and security, many of the chemicals we have actually prohibited in the past were fire resistants– consider asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, polybrominated biphenyls, tris( 2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate, PBDEs– [and also] they all wound up in the atmosphere as well as in individuals. We have to assume very carefully regarding including these kind of chemicals to customer items prior to there suffices wellness details,” states Arlene Blum, a biophysical drug store as well as going to scholar at the College of The Golden State, Berkeley.

The good idea is that United States legislations as well as volunteer constraints have actually eliminated a lot of the even more worrying chemicals that can be existing in memory foam, though these would certainly not always relate to imports.

Expertise is power? In this write-up, we will certainly check out memory foam active ingredients, study, customer details and also item contrasts to examine memory foam safety and security. Some cushions are more secure compared to others as well as after reviewing this you’ll recognize how you can discriminate.

Some resources (some of which could be in memory foam like toluene, benzene as well as formaldehyde) have actually been connected with breathing inflammation, throat inflammation, lapse of memory, really feeling lightheaded or establishing a frustration, and also duplicated direct exposure could lead to sensitization or sensitive responses (this is normally connected with workplace direct exposure nonetheless, according to the EPA).

Just how Do You Know if You’ll Be Impacted?

From the several customers that have actually purchased memory foam beds, a really little section appear to experience allergic-type responses. There are some records online of individuals experiencing nose, throat or eye inflammation, bronchial asthma irritability, or nausea or vomiting which they credit to mattress smells. These testimonials remain in the minority compared with the thousands that have actually possessed memory foam without case over the previous 25 years. Inning accordance with Sleep Like The Dead’s research study, smells create much less compared to 2% of individuals total to return these cushions.

Various brand names could differ on smell, be careful if a firm is pitching you “no VOC or VOC cost-free” memory foam, as that is not a possible item provided exactly how memory foam is made. A memory foam could be “reduced VOC” or “devoid of poisonous VOCs”, however as we have actually pointed out previously, nearly every natural item has scent-laden residential properties that are “VOCs”.

The Federal Profession Payment just recently filed a claim against and also penalizeded a couple of firms making the VOC-free insurance claim that can not back it up consisting of Essentia, Relief-Mart/Temp-Flow, as well as Ecobaby Organics.

Pay the appropriate rate: Our overview of this year’s mattress sales

The polyurethane made use of in memory foam beds coincides foam utilized in the majority of family furnishings (like couches, recliner chairs, as well as various other products with foam). Virtually all innerspring bed mattress likewise have layers of polyurethane, and also comparable fire-barrier products. If you experience a problem with various other polyurethane including products (like springtime bed mattress) or have responses to smells from paint or brand-new furnishings, you might experience a concern with high-VOC memory foam.

If this is a worry for you, we advise checking into all-natural latex bed mattress which have no polyurethane foam. If you have no previous problems with level of sensitivity, compared to memory foam ought to not posture any kind of significant pain or health and wellness danger to you.

SINKAGE TEST

For many people buying a mattress it will be important to know whether they are going to feel like they are sitting on top of or sinking into bed. In order to get a better idea of how someone might sink into a mattress, I use four balls of varying sizes and densities (a 6 lb medicine ball, a 10 lb steel ball, a 50 lb medicine ball, and a 100 lb medicine ball) and place them on the mattress to measure how much they compress the surface.

==> Click here to see the DEAL of the DAY

I switched to lying on my stomach and found that the firm side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my hips from sinking into the mattress and my spine aligned. This combined with the low pressure on my chest for easier breathing, leads me to believe that stomach sleepers would probably prefer the firm side of the Layla.

FIRMNESS

When I pressed into the soft side of the mattress I found that the memory foam compressed pretty easily. As I pushed further into the mattress my hands sunk pretty far into the construction of the Layla and could feel the memory contouring to my hands.

MOTION TRANSFER

If you are sharing the mattress with a partner, you will want to know what it will feel like when the other person gets into and out of bed or tosses and turns during the night. This next test is helpful in showing the intensity of motion that is detectable from one side of the mattress to the other.

I performed this test on the soft side of the Layla first and was really impressed with the results on the 4 inch drop. This drop simulates someone changing positions on the other side of the bed and the results graphic above shows the Layla did a great job isolating motion. As expected there was slightly larger disturbance felt for the 8 and 12 inch drops, but these are some of the best results I have seen while performing reviews.

layla mattress reviews yelp

Firm Comfort– The comfort layer of the firm side of the Layla is made of 1 inch of the same copper infused memory foam as the soft side of the mattress. With only an inch of memory foam, the sleeper won’t sink far into the layla with this side up, but will still feel some contouring. Another reason this side will feel firmer is that there is no transition between the comfort and support layers.

During this review I take a look at the double-sided Layla mattress which allows sleepers to choose between different firmness levels, depending on which side they choose to face up. Throughout this review I will describe the performance of the Layla for both the firm and soft sides of the mattress. If you’re interested in learning more about the Layla mattresses, read on for my full review!

For this test I dropped a 10 lb steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches and measured the disturbance on the other side of the mattress. This should be pretty intuitive: the bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

It is notable that there isn’t a massive difference between the firmness levels of the two sides of the Layla. With some flippable mattresses there will be a much wider variance in firmness, however the Layla does seem to sit just on either side of medium firmness.

Up in the sinkage test I measured the results for the soft side of the Layla.

Support– What would be considered the base or support center of the Layla mattress is made of a high density (2 lb) poly foam. It is a firm layer that provides support regardless of the firmness that the sleeper has chosen. This portion of the mattress has a quick response to pressure and gives the Layla its shape.

layla mattress reviews yelp

I moved onto my stomach and with my weight evenly distributed the pressure map shows low pressure across my entire body. Stomach sleepers tend to like firmer mattresses as they keep their hips from sinking, which can lead to lower back pain. I did find that my hips sank in a bit on this side of the mattress, so if you are a strict stomach sleeper you may prefer the firm side of the Layla.

These different sizes, weights, and densities help to imitate different body parts or different sized people to show how far into a mattress you may sink.

CONSTRUCTION

The Layla is an all foam mattress consisting of four different layers. As I mentioned before, it is a double sided mattress which allows the sleeper to choose between a firm or soft feel depending on their preference.

After I flipped the mattress and lied down on my back the pressure map again shows low pressure across my body. There was a slight feeling of contour from the memory foam layer but, with the quick transition to the firm support layer, this side of the Layla did a good job of keeping my spine aligned. Even though there was a slight memory foam feeling, I didn’t sink in too far so I didn’t feel stuck in the mattress on this side.

The firm side of the mattress also performed well on the motion transfer portion of the review. The 4 and 8 inch drops show similar results on the seismometer readout above and both are well below the average disturbance when compared to the same drops on other mattresses. The 12 inch drop showed a larger disturbance, but this is still a good result for this drop.

Transition– Below the comfort layer is a 2 inch layer of poly foam (1.8 lb density). This layer begins to add a little bit of support to the mattress and acts as a transition layer from the soft comfort layer above to the firm support core below. I should also note that this layer is convoluted (with an egg crate design) to allow air to flow through the mattress for temperature regulation.

layla mattress reviews yelp

Soft Comfort– The comfort layer for the softer side of the mattress consists of 3 inches of copper infused memory foam (3.5 lb density). This is a pretty thick layer of memory foam, which is a soft material that will allow the sleeper to sink in for pressure relief. This material has a slow response to pressure and provides a contouring feel to the mattress. At times memory foam can have a reputation for trapping body heat, so Layla included the copper infusion to help with cooling.

When pressing into the firm side of the mattress there is still some contouring from the memory foam. The noticeable thing about pushing into the firm side is the quick transition from the soft memory foam to the firm support center beneath it, which is a noticeable change from the soft side of the Layla.

Because of differences in size and body type everyone will feel the firmness of a mattress a bit differently. Rather than giving just my opinion on the overall firmness level of Layla, I enlisted three other people to give their opinion. This will give you a better sense of the firmness range you can expect from both sides of the mattress.

When I rolled onto my side I quickly pushed through the thin layer of memory foam and began to interact with the support layer. This firmer feel is generally not great for side sleepers and I think strict or bigger side sleepers will prefer the softer side of the Layla.

PRESSURE MAP

Instead of just describing what it feels like to lie on a Layla mattress I wanted to give a visual representation of where someone may feel pressure points while lying on it. To do this I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my back, side, and stomach.

There was a pretty large range on the firmness of the firm side of the Layla, with scores ranging from 5.5/ 10 to 7/10. I believe the variance in response from testers is due to the amount they felt they were sinking into the support layer of the Layla. I personally felt that the firm side came in at a 6.5/ 10 as it allowed me to sink into the memory foam a bit, but the dense poly foam beneath provided good support.

Once I rolled onto my side I began to dig a bit further into the mattress as there was a higher weight concentration over a lower surface area. Side sleepers can sometimes have issues with pressure points forming at the shoulders and hips but the pressure map results show only slightly raised levels of pressure in those areas. Thick layers of memory foam, like the one on the soft side of the Layla, are generally a positive for side sleepers as they allow the sleeper to sink into the mattress for pressure relief. I found this side of the mattress to be pretty comfortable while lying on my side.

In general a mattress with a 6.5/ 10 on the firmness scale is considered medium firmness. The soft side of the Layla came in at an average of 5.5/ 10, showing that the Sleepopolis testers found it to be as advertised.

layla mattress reviews yelp

Up in the pressure map test was the soft side of the mattress and I began on my back. In this position my weight was pretty evenly distributed and the results above show low pressure across my body. When lying in this position I could feel myself sinking into the memory foam and it began to contour to my body. The memory foam has a slow response to pressure, so I felt like changing positions took a little bit of added effort on this side of the mattress.

Cover– The Layla cover is made of a soft polyester blend that I found to have a bit of a cozy feeling to it. Along with the soft feel, the cover has a gel infusion to help with temperature regulation and cooling. I should also note that the cover is fully removable for dry cleaning.

6 lb medicine ball: 1.5 inches of sinkage.
10 lb steel ball: 2.5 inches of sinkage.
50 lb medicine ball: 5 inches of sinkage.
100 lb medicine ball: 6.5 inches of sinkage.
Next up in the sinkage test was the firm side of the mattress.

Memory Foam– Both the firm and the soft comfort layers of the Layla use copper infused memory foam to provide pressure relief. This material allows the sleeper to sink in and provides the classic memory foam feel of contouring to the body.
Sleep Cool– The Layla has a few different components in the materials used in the construction of the mattress that have cooling properties. These include the gel infusion in the cover as well as the copper infusion in the memory foam of the comfort layers, which help with temperature regulation.
Flippable Option– The Layla could be a good fit if you’re not sure which firmness level is right for you and want two shots at getting it. Another possible benefit of a flippable mattress is for use in a guest room where there will be sleepers with different preferences on the mattress depending on the occasion.

Now that we’ve taken a deep dive into the Layla mattress it’s time to discuss who it would be a good fit for. layla mattress reviews yelp
