A hybrid is two things: hybrid cars are gas and electric powered, hybrid veggies cross two or more varieties, and hybrid mattresses combine traditional innerspring and memory foam mattresses. Both innerspring mattresses and also memory foam mattresses have benefits and drawbacks – neither is ideal for every type of person. Luckily, hybrid mattresses combine the best parts of both of the other mattress types. Read on to see if a hybrid mattress is the right choice for you.
What Is A Hybrid Mattress?
A hybrid mattress is a luxury combination of support and comfort. The mattress starts with pocketed innerspring coils that provide a comfortable and supportive foundation. On top of those are multiple layers of soft, conforming memory foam. This combination captures the support of a traditional innerspring mattress as well as the comfort of a memory foam mattress. Hybrid mattresses really do provide the best of both worlds.
How Are They Different?
Most hybrid mattresses have individually pocketed coils. This means that the inner springs are each in their own section, a quality that helps to decrease motion transfer. The coils themselves ensure that you’re getting proper spinal alignment and support (something often missing from traditional memory foam mattresses), regardless of your sleep position. One of the more significant drawbacks of a traditional innerspring mattress is that the springs cause pressure points. This is corrected in a hybrid mattress by the layers of memory foam on top. The memory foam conforms to your body without sacrificing the support of the coils beneath. Finally, many hybrid mattresses are infused with cooling gel to limit the heat-trapping properties of memory foam. Hybrid mattresses really do fix the major drawback of both of the other mattress choices.
What Sleepers Will Benefit From Them?
Almost any sleeper can benefit from a hybrid mattress. Most side sleepers experience pressure points with innerspring mattresses, so they enjoy the comfort of the memory foam topper. Stomach sleepers on the other hand need additional support so that they don’t over-extend their backs, and a traditional memory foam mattress would be too soft without the support of the coils. Even back sleepers find more comfort with the hybrid, especially the models that include cooling gel to keep the bed comfortable all night long. Finally, people with kids or pets who like to join them in bed will appreciate that they don’t have to wake up every time someone moves on the mattress.
