The Layla Hybrid, because of its flippability, should fit the needs of most sleepers. However, lightweight and heavyweight stomach sleepers may want to look elsewhere.
The Layla Hybrid’s firm side will provide average weight (130-230 pounds) stomach sleepers with adequate support. They will want to avoid the Layla Hybrid’s soft side, as they’ll sink too far. However, individuals under 130 pounds or over 230 pounds who sleep on their stomachs will want something with more support.
The soft side of the Layla Hybrid will be ideal for side sleepers of all weight classes. The thick comfort layers let them sink into the mattress and provides relief around the hips and shoulders. Side sleepers will likely prefer the plush side of the mattress.
This mattress suits all back sleepers. Lightweight back sleepers will enjoy the soft side of the Layla Hybrid. They’ll sink into the thick memory foam just enough to contour to their bodies without throwing off their spinal alignment. Average weight and heavyweight back sleepers will want to use the firm side.
The Layla Hybrid’s soft side features thick memory foam that contours to side sleepers’ body shapes. These sleepers require this extra contour to relieve pressure at the shoulders and hips. Thicker foam layers adapt to the body better, which is why side sleepers tend to favor pure-foam mattresses.
Back and stomach sleepers will be better suited to the firm side because their weight is more evenly distributed. Sinking too deeply into thick memory foam can cause spinal misalignment, resulting in back pain.
