What is a Hybrid Mattress?

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

For years, people slept on a mattress filled with coils or springs – this is more commonly known as an innerspring mattress. Memory foam mattresses came after that and people were amazed that they could move without disturbing their partner. But what if you wanted to sleep on both? From that thought came the hybrid mattress.

What is a hybrid mattress?

Remember the story of Goldilocks? The first mattress she slept on was too hard, the second was too soft, but the third was just right. In this instance, think of the innerspring mattress as the first bed. It is a firmer mattress, but typically lasts longer than a memory foam mattress. The second, softer mattress is the memory foam mattress. While you can purchase a firm memory foam mattress, it’s still going to cradle your curves while you sleep.

The third “just right” bed is the hybrid mattress. It is the combination of a memory foam mattress and an innerspring mattress. While it is soft, the coils inside the mattress provide additional support, giving you that “just right” feel throughout the night.

To be fair, not every mattress labeled a “hybrid mattress” is what it says. The real hybrid mattresses are those that use larger layers of foam on the top and use less fiber. If you try a mattress that feels just like every other innerspring mattress, and it uses a tufted top (the little indents sewn down), it’s probably not what most people would consider a real hybrid.

Is a hybrid mattress right for me?

While a hybrid mattress might be the “best of both worlds,” it might not be the best for you. A hybrid mattress does provide more support than a typical memory foam mattress, but it still has a thick layer of foam at the top. Even though the springs provide more support throughout the night, the foam is still meant to cradle you. In short, even if it’s a firm mattress, it’s going to be on the soft side of firm.

That being said, if you’re looking for something comfortable and supportive, a hybrid mattress is perfect for you. Many hybrid mattresses can be shipped to your house in a box, so you don’t have to worry about scheduling a delivery truck to bring your new mattress.
