What is a hybrid mattress?

“Hybrid” is a newer category in the mattress industry, and includes any mattress that combines an inner spring structure with outer layers of specialty foam, such as memory foam, gel foam, latex rubber, or some mixture of the three.

With hybrids, sleepers get the bouncy, solid base they’re used to, along with the responsive, pressure-point relieving comfort of specialty foam. The best hybrid mattresses also retain a traditional mattress shape, or “profile,” including a grooved surface and tailored edges, whereas pure latex or memory foam models feature straight surface lines and a lower total height.

The underlying coils in a hybrid mattress can be arranged in different ways. Individually pocketed coils are especially good for reducing motion transfer between sleep partners-your partner can toss and turn all night and you won’t feel a thing.

Alternative options include mattresses with firmer coils in the center and springier coils on the outer thirds.

Specialty foam is weight and body heat-sensitive, and molds instantaneously to suit your shape and position while you sleep. Hybrid mattresses vary in the amount of specialty foam they incorporate, with the average being about a two-inch surface layer, which comes out to 20% or less of the mattress’ overall thickness. Some hybrid mattresses include even less specialty foam, making up the difference with regular foam. Memory foam and latex rubber are acclaimed for creating an impressionable mattress surface that conforms to your body, rather than the other way around. Specialty foam increases blood circulation and improves spinal alignment, all of which adds up to a deep, restful, unbroken night’s sleep.

For sleepers who find that a 100% memory foam or latex mattress gives them a sinking, unstable sensation, but who enjoy the cool, conforming surface, a hybrid mattress with an innerspring core might be the ideal option.

Hybrid mattress reviews

Sleepers love how the hybrid mattress conforms to the body and gives them the ultimate sleeping experience. In their hybrid mattress reviews, customers routinely point out that the memory foam evenly distributes weight and promotes a feeling of soft, comfortable rest they were not getting from previous mattresses.

Like the conventional innerspring mattress, the hybrid has a construction that helps relieve muscle tension. This is necessary for proper neck and back alignment support to prevent those inexplicable morning muscle aches or restlessness. The added hybrid material (latex, or gel or memory foam) protects pressure points along sensitive areas in the shoulders, spine and hips where sleepers can have the most problems.

The hybrid mattress has recuperative power. Sleepers with sciatica, hip, neck and lower back issues, discomfort in the shoulders, post-surgery aches and other ailments have come to appreciate the way the hybrid mattress alleviates pain and helps in the rehabilitation process.

Some of benefits of expert-recommended hybrid beds include:

  • Increases the “sleep-able” surface area of the mattress, letting you rest comfortably even at the edges
  • Lengthens the life of the mattress
  • Less chance of body craters forming in memory foam with a resilient spring base underneath

You may want to consider a hybrid mattress if:

  • You don’t want to give up the comfort of specialty foam, but you’re a “hot” sleeper and desire increased surface breathability
  • You’re uncomfortable resting on memory foam or latex mattresses and feel like necessary support is lacking
  • You prefer the higher profile of a traditional mattress as compared with pure foam models
  • Traditional spring coil beds feel too hard and ungiving after you’ve tried out the newer foam models
