The Joybed LX Mattress uses a hybrid design with natural materials in its comfort layers and pocketed coils in its support core.
A breathable GOTS-certified organic cotton cover wraps around the mattress, helping to keep the bed’s surface cool. The bed avoids the use of chemical flame retardants with a plant-based fire barrier. Next, the mattress uses a layer of cotton, a layer of wool, and another layer of cotton. The cotton adds some softness and breathability, while the wool helps wick away heat and moisture.
Individually encased coils make up the Joybed LX Mattress’s support core. Each coil can move separately to help isolate motion and contour to the shape of the sleeper’s body. A double column of coils around the perimeter of the bed gives extra edge support.
The Joybed LX falls between a 7 and an 8 on the 10-point firmness scale, which means it has a firm feel. This is firmer than the average range most individuals prefer, so it’s most appropriate for individuals looking for a firm, stable sleep surface.
The Joybed LX consists of five main layers wrapped in an organic cotton cover. Its comfort system includes a plant-based fire barrier, a layer of cotton, a layer of wool, and a second layer of cotton. The support system uses pocketed coils.

The Joybed LX has a much lower price point than most hybrid models on the market, making it a useful option for shoppers on a budget. It comes in the six standard mattress sizes.
|Twin||38" x 75"||10"||61 lbs.||$495|
|Twin XL||38" x 80"||10"||65 lbs.||$890|
|Full||53" x 75"||10"||85 lbs.||$1,090|
|Queen||60" x 80"||10"||98 lbs.||$1,190|
|King||76" x 80"||10"||118 lbs.||$1,490|
|California King||72" x 84"||10"||115 lbs.||$1,490|
The comfort system of the Joybed LX is built more for cushioning rather than contouring, which could lead to some pressure buildup for side sleepers. While the cotton and wool comfort system softens the surface of the bed, it does not redistribute the sleeper’s weight like latex or foam. Since a side sleeper’s hips and shoulders tend to put more force on the mattress, pressure could build up in these areas.
Side sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds may be particularly likely to experience pressure points because of the mattress’s firm feel. These sleepers may get more cushioning from the Joybed LXP Medium-Plush model instead. People who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds will probably find the Joybed LX more comfortable for side sleeping since the coil core will adjust more to their shape.
Side sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds will find the bed’s firm feel comfortable, but may also experience pressure points when sleeping on their sides since they may sink in against the firm coil core.
Since back sleepers usually prefer a firmer mattress than side sleepers, making the Joybed LX a good match. One of the most common problems associated with back sleeping is sagging around the hips, which puts pressure on the lumbar region. The Joybed LX’s firm feel limits sinkage, thereby supporting a back sleeper’s spinal alignment. The cotton and wool in the comfort system provide a bit of cushioning, but not too much.
Regardless of an individual’s weight, the Joybed LX should be supportive enough for most back sleepers and give them the even plane they need to keep their spines aligned.
When sleeping on their stomachs, the weight around an individual’s hips and belly may pull their midsection too deeply into the mattress and put a strain on their spine. Because of this, stomach sleepers usually need a firmer mattress for extra support.
Thanks to its firm feel and sturdy coil core, the Joybed LX should not allow a stomach sleeper’s midsection to dip too far into the bed. Cushioning from the cotton and wool comfort layers is light, so stomach sleepers won’t feel enveloped by the bed.
Stomach sleepers under 130 pounds should get the support they need, but the Joybed LX may feel a little firmer than ideal. Those who weigh more than 130 pounds will likely get the best balance of support and softness out of this bed.
