Best Hybrid Mattress

When hybrid mattresses first came into the mattress industry, they took it by storm. The combination of two great types of mattresses was instantly desired by consumers.

Today, hybrid mattresses remain a popular choice for many. The unique feel of foam and coil lulls many sleepers to sleep every night. And the cooling design provides better airflow, making sweaty evenings a thing of the past.

The editors at Simply Rest examined different people’s sleeping needs and after careful mattress review our Editors have selected the best mattress for each sleeping position.

Best Hybrid Mattress of 2020 – AS3h

as3 hybrid The AS3h is our favorite hybrid of 2020. It’s medium in firmness; suitable for side, back, and combination sleepers of most body types; and it features plant-based memory foams (meaning less off-gassing and more responsive comfort). Brought to you by Amerisleep, the AS3h is an off-shoot of their best-selling, all-foam AS3 model—the biggest difference between the two mattress models is the inclusion of pocketed coils in the AS3h.

The first layer of the AS3h is 3 inches of Bio-Pur®, a pressure-relieving, plant-based memory foam. Bio-Pur® is less-prone to off-gassing, and more responsive and breathable because it’s plant-based. If you’re a hot sleeper, you won’t have to worry about night sweats when sleeping on the AS3h.

Below the layer of Bio-Pur® is the 8-inch pocket coil system. These coils isolate motion, give the bed some bounce, and provide targeted support. Amerisleep designs these coils to feel firmer under your torso for added support and softer under your shoulders and hips for improved pressure relief, so you’ll always wake up feeling refreshed. Plus, because these coils are pocketed, they allow for plenty of airflow through the bed—further preventing night sweats.

The last layer of the AS3h is a 1-inch layer of durable poly-foam. This base layer gives the coils a surface to rest on and offer added support. Like all Amerisleep mattresses, the AS3h also features a soft, breathable cover to promote more restful sleep.

The AS3h comes with a 100-night trial period and a 20-year warranty. Amerisleep also offers free shipping and returns with every mattress purchase.

Best Hybrid Mattress for Side Sleepers – Purple Hybrid Premier mattress

Best Hybrid Mattress for Side Sleepers - Purple Hybrid Premier mattress

The Purple Hybrid Premier mattress is a great choice for side sleepers because it’s on the softer end of the spectrum. This is important because when you sleep on your side, the hip and the shoulder get the concentrated pressure of your body weight. A mattress that’s too hard will cause pain over time. A softer mattress is better suitable for proper pressure point relief.

Let’s have a look at its layers:

  1. The Premium StrechMax cover is very breathable with extra side panels for better airflow. It’s also very stretchy (as the name suggests) to allow the grid layer underneath function to the best of its abilities.
  2. Then we find the Purple Grid™ layer that’s designed to provide maximum pressure point relief. This layer is made from gel-like stretchy foam and has a grid-like structure.
  3. Under the Purple Grid™, we see a thin polyfoam transitional layer.  
  4. Under the transitional layer come the 7.5-inch tall pocketed coils. They work together with the grid layer above and provide isolated pressure point support. The coil layer also increase the breathability of the mattress which allows better temperature regulation.
  5. Under the coils comes another think polyfoam transitional layer, just like the one right above. 
  6. The whole mattress is then wrapped in polyfoam casing to provide better edge support and keep the structure of the mattress.

Firmness

The Purple Hybrid Premier mattress comes in two options of their patented The Purple Grid™—a 3-inch thick layer, and 4-inch thick. The three-inch layer makes the mattress a medium-soft. The four-inch layer rates the mattress as soft. Both of these options are perfect for side sleepers, it simply depends whether you like a slightly firmer surface or a nice and plush one.

Pressure Point Relief

The Purple Grid™ is designed to collapse under pressure, with relieves the pressure off your shoulder and hip. The pocketed coils then add gentle support to ensure you are sleeping with your spine aligned.  Overall, the Purple Hybrid Premier does a great job at pressure point relief. 

Spinal Alignment

As mentioned above, the grid layer and the pocketed coils work together nicely to ensure a healthy sleeping position. They balance each other out and keep your spine aligned throughout the night.

Size

The Purple Hybrid Premier comes at 11.5-inches or 12.5-inches tall (depending on your choice of the Purple Grid™ layer). The mattress in queen size weights 168 lbs.

Sleep Trial

Purple offers a 100-night sleep trial to test out their mattresses, which is an industry-standard.

Warranty

Purple also gives a 10-year warranty for the mattresses they sell. 

Price

The Purple Hybrid Premier comes at the price of $2199 for a queen size. It’s quite a bit more expensive compared to other mattresses on this list. But this hybrid mattress is so well-suited for side sleepers, that’s it’s definitely worth having a look at it if you’ve got the funds.

What People are Saying:

The Purple Hybrid Premier mattress is rated at 4.4 stars out of 5. This rating can be found on their official website. 

Some critics explained that the feel of the Purple Grid™ was not what they imagined it would feel like, which is a common comment. The grid does provide a unique sleeping experience that’s not loved by everyone. Other people complained that the mattress didn’t last that long. But with Purple’s 10-year warranty, returning it shouldn’t be an issue if this does occur.

Best Hybrid Bed for Back Sleepers – Brentwood Cedar

 Brentwood cedar hybrid mattress for back sleepers in a bedroom setting.

The Brentwood Cedar mattress uses all-natural materials, which makes it a very eco-friendly choice. Its specific hybrid design makes it great for back sleepers. The latex layers fill in the gap between the lower back and the mattress, which provides support to the spine.

Let’s take a look at its layers:

  1. The Brentwood Cedar mattress cover is made from organic cotton and is quilted with natural wool. This works to wick away moisture and provide a soft, comforting feeling.
  2. The second layer is two inches of natural latex foam, making the mattress responsive and cooling.
  3. The third layer of the Brentwood Cedar mattress is also natural latex foam. However, this layer also provides extra support in specific areas.
  4. The fourth layer is pocketed coils, which are eight inches tall and provide targeted pressure point relief. These coils also make the mattress breathable.
  5. The fifth and final layer of the Brentwood Cedar mattress is one inch of coconut husk.

Firmness

The Brentwood Cedar mattress is of medium firmness, which is preferred among many back sleepers. The coils provide support and responsiveness, while the latex contours the body when you sleep.

Pressure Point Relief

The 8-inch pocketed coils are designed with 5 support zones. This provides the mattress with extra support in the most important places – the pressure points.

Spinal Alignment

With the support of the pocketed coils, the latex layers in the Brentwood Cedar mattress maintain the natural spine alignment. As mentioned before, the latex fills in the gap between the mattress and the lower back when you sleep on your back. This is what provides solid support for your spine.

Size

The Brentwood Cedar mattress is 13 inches tall and weighs 135 lbs. This is an average height for a hybrid mattress, but it is heavier than average since latex is a dense material.

Free Trial

Brentwood Home gives you a free trial of 120 nights.

Warranty

For its warranty, Brentwood Home offers 25 years, which is more than the average 10-year industry norm.

Price

The Brentwood Cedar mattress costs $1,949 for a queen. The price tag is higher than other mattresses because natural latex is an expensive material.

What People are Saying:

The Brentwood Cedar mattress has a 4.5 average rating on a 5-star scale. People love the quick delivery and absence of unpleasant smells. However, some customers have rated this mattress a little lower because it is firmer than they expected, so keep this in mind.

Best Hybrid Mattress for a Stomach Sleeper – Amore Luxury Hybrid Mattress

Best Hybrid Mattress for a Stomach Sleeper - Amore Luxury Hybrid Mattress

Stomach sleepers require a firmer surface to sleep on. This is because the bodyweight gets concentrated mainly on the hips area, which can sink in too deep if the mattress does not provide sufficient support. If the hips sink into the mattress too much, the spine gets misaligned which can cause a lot of lower back pain and longer-term problems. 

Amore Luxury is a foam hybrid mattress that comes in two firmness options – Luxury Medium and Luxury Firm. For the purpose of this review, we’ll focus on the Firm option only as we believe it’s a great choice for stomach sleepers.

Let’s peek inside the mattress:

  1. The Amore Luxury mattress comes with a choice of two toppers – either GOTS-certified organic cotton cover or Copper-Ion infused fabric cover. The cotton cover provides more temperature control and the copper-infused cover is said to be better for your skin.
  2. Underneath the cover, there’s a thin layer of natural wool blend. This provides the sleeper with more gentle cushioning and the mattress with better temperature control.
  3. Then comes the organic Dunlop latex layer, which provides pressure point relief and natural cooling.
  4. Underneath the latex, we see open-cell polyfoam which acts as a transitional layer.
  5. Finally, we find the pocketed coils. They’re 6 inches tall and are designed to provide targeted support.
  6. Under all of the above layers, we find high-density polyfoam which adds stability and longevity to the mattress.

Firmness

The Amore Luxury mattress in luxury firm rates at about 7.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. This is a great level of firmness that provides sufficient support to the stomach sleepers. 

Pressure Point Relief

The latex and open-cell polyfoam conform to the body, while the pocketed coils support the pressure points. Meaning, you will sleep on a comforting surface and still have your hips supported throughout the night.

Spinal Alignment

As mentioned before, correct spine alignment is crucial for stomach sleepers. Sleeping long-term with a misaligned spine can cause serious lower back pain, and potentially even more worrying health issues. Luckily, the Amore Luxury mattress will keep your spine aligned, allowing you a restful sleep.

Size

The Amore Luxury mattress is 12.5 inches tall and 120 lbs heavy. It’s suitable for all kinds of bed bases, such as adjustable beds, platform beds and more.

Sleep Trial

Amore Beds offer a 100-night long sleep trial. This meets but does not exceed the industry-standard.

Warranty

Now when it comes to the warranty, Amore Beds offers 20 years. This is double the length of a usual mattress warranty, which is a great thing to keep in mind.

Price

A queen-sized Amore Luxury mattress costs $1200. An average price for a good mattress.

What People are Saying:

Although the Amore Luxury mattress does not have many reviews yet (only 41 people have rated this mattress on their official website), it’s averagely rated at 4.8 out of 5 stars.

Best Hybrid Mattress for Couples – The Bear Hybrid mattress

Best Hybrid Mattress for Couples - The Bear Hybrid mattress

We picked the Bear Hybrid mattress as our top pick for couples because it has great motion isolation and edge support. The mattress is also designed to suit the average sleeper, meaning that it’ll most likely suit you and your partner well. 

Let’s look inside the mattress:

  1. The cover of the Bear Hybrid is a Celliant® fiber topper. It is designed to cool the sleeper throughout the night by slightly increasing their blood flow. 
  2. Right under the plush cover, we find the Hypersoft Cooling-gel foam. This is gel-like polyfoam, that offers good temperature control and comfort.
  3. The foam comfort layer inside the Bear Hybrid mattress is made from their Premium Comfort Foam. This is a memory foam-like layer that conforms around the body and has a slow response to pressure. This means better motion isolation.
  4. Under the comfort layer, we see a thin, high-density polyfoam that acts as a transition to the coils below.
  5. The pocketed coils inside this mattress have a zoned support system. This means they offer good pressure point support to the sleeper and allow great edge support to the mattress. 
  6. Under the coils, we see a base layer of high-density polyfoam, which provides longevity and stability to the mattress.

Firmness

The Bear Hybrid rates as medium. This is a good level of firmness that suits most sleepers, as mentioned before. However, if you or your partner prefer to sleep on the stomach, you might find this mattress a little too plush. 

Pressure Point Relief

The zoned pocketed coil system inside the Bear Hybrid offers great pressure point relief. The coils aren’t connected to each other which allows them to move independently, focusing on pressurized areas only. 

The pocketed coils around the edges of this layer are also slightly reinforced, providing good edge support. This is a big bonus for couples, as sometimes one of you will find yourselves sleeping on the edge of the mattress. 

Spinal Alignment

The gel-like foam layer right under the topper, and the comfort layer that comes next, offer very good spine alignment. Both of these layers are responsive, yet supportive. This ensures a healthy body positioning no matter the preferred sleeping pose. 

Size

The Bear Hybrid mattress is 14 inches tall and 110 lbs heavy. It’s a pretty big mattress that still comes in a box. 

If you find that the mattress is too large or too heavy to set up by yourself, you can always opt in for White-glove delivery and setup. The price will be quoted individually upon checkout.

Sleep Trial

As most mattress brands, the Bear also offers 100 nights to try out their mattress. If you don’t like it, you can return it free of charge.

Warranty

The warranty of the Bear mattress is 20 years. This is longer compared to most other brands.

Price

The Bear Hybrid mattress can be purchased for $1390 for a queen size. 

What People are Saying:

The Bear Hybrid is rated at 4.7 out of 5 stars. There are over 1.3k reviews on their official website.

However, the critics warn that this mattress is firmer than they expected. So if you are, or you partner is, a side sleeper this mattress may not provide sufficient relief and support to the hip and shoulder.

Best Hybrid Mattress for Heavy People – Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress

Best Hybrid Mattress for Heavy People - Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress

Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction is the firmest hybrid mattress on this list. It offers great pressure point relief, edge support and breathability which are the most important aspects for heavy sleepers. 

And although Bob-O-Pedic mattresses aren’t that well-known in the industry, this particular one definitely caught our eye. So let’s have a look inside:

  1. The cover of the Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction is a stretchy blend of natural cashmere wool and Tencel. This fabric has natural antimicrobial and cooling properties, providing better and cleaner sleep.
  2. Under the cover, we find the first comfort layer made from gel-infused memory foam. This layer has a slow response rate and great contouring. While the gel properties provide an overall cooler surface to sleep on.
  3. The second comfort layer is made of latex foam. It’s what works to keep the spine aligned and pressure points relieved.
  4. Then we find the support layer made from breathable fast recovery polyfoam. This layer also helps with pressure point relief and reduces motion transfer.
  5. Under the three foam layers mentioned above, we reach the pocketed coils. These coils do not have a zoned support system. But they still work well at supporting the pressure points and offering proper edge support.

Firmness

The Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress is rated as firm. This is great for heavy sleepers, as anything softer would not provide sufficient support to the pressure points and the spine. You’d find yourself sinking in too deep and waking up with aches and pains. 

Pressure Point Relief

The three foam layers within the mattress contour the body, conforming around the points of pressure. And the pocketed coils provide support from deep within. Together these layers provide great pressure point relief to a heavy sleeper.

Spinal Alignment

Although three layers of foam can sound super plush, the density of each layer is higher than average. This ensures that the mattress is not too soft, and keeps the spine aligned.

Size

The Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress is big – it stands at 15.5 inches tall and weighs 112 lbs. For heavy sleepers, a tall mattress can make it harder to get in and out of bed. Therefore, we’d recommend a lower bed frame for this mattress to balance out the height. 

Sleep Trial

The sleep trial that the Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction comes with is a little shorter than the industry-standard. You would get 90 days to decide whether this mattress is right for you or not.

Warranty

As for the warranty, it’s 20 years. Double the length compared to the standard warranty of 10-years.

Price

A queen-size Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress costs $1299.

What People are Saying:

On their official website, the Bob-O-Pedic Hybrid Distinction mattress is rated at 4.9 out of 5 stars. This is an amazing rating, but you must keep in mind that there are only 39 reviews.

Best Budget Hybrid Mattress – Eco Terra Hybrid Mattress

Best Budget Hybrid Mattress - Eco Terra Hybrid Mattress

The Eco Terra Hybrid Mattress is our favorite when it comes to getting a good deal. It comes with a very attractive price tag, and it’s the most eco-friendly mattress of the bunch.

The materials used in the Eco Terra Hybrid mattress are natural and organic. The wool found within the topper is GOTS-certified, as well as the organic cotton the cover is made from. The latex is also OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, meaning it’s 100% natural.

The overall structure of the mattress is pretty basic, but it’s functional. Let’s have a look:

  1. On top of the mattress, we find a stretched cotton cover, that naturally wicks away moisture. This is a great feature if you are a hot sleeper or tend to sweat a lot.
  2. Under the cotton fabric, we find a layer of natural and organic wool. The wool works to dissipate excess body heat and provides a plush feel to the mattress.
  3. Then comes the organic latex layer. It’s responsive but molds to your body, providing great pressure point relief. It’s also what keeps your spine aligned when you sleep.
  4. Under the latex, we see the pocketed coils. This is what collaborates with the latex above to provide pressure point relief, motion isolation and buoyancy to the mattress.

Firmness

The Eco Terra Hybrid mattress is available in two options of firmness—medium and medium-firm. The choice is in your hands and should be made with keeping your preferred sleeping position in mind.

Side sleepers and light sleepers should go for the Medium firmness option to ensure the mattress is not too firm and provides efficient support. If the mattress is too firm, the pressure points will not be supported properly, causing pain.

Back sleepers, average-weight sleepers, and combination sleepers should go for the medium-firm. And if you’re a stomach sleeper or a heavy sleeper, then going for one of the mattresses mentioned above would be best.

Pressure Point Relief

The latex foam relieves the pressure by conforming around the body and allowing just the right amount of sinkage. The pocketed coils then provide isolated support to the pressure points to ensure a comfortable sleep.

Spinal Alignment

While the pocketed coils work with the pressure points, the latex foam layer focuses on the spine. Conforming to the sleeper’s body just the right amount, it ensures an aligned spine in any sleeping position (given that the mattress firmness is correct).

Size

The Eco Terra Hybrid mattress 11 inches tall and 100lbs heavy. It’s a smaller mattress compared to the other ones on our list. But smaller size doesn’t necessarily mean less support and comfort. 

Sleep Trial

Eco Terra allows 90 nights to sleep on their mattress to decide if it suits your needs. This is a slightly shorter sleep trial, offering 10 nights less compared to most mattress companies.

Warranty

When it comes to the warranty, Eco Terra offers 15 years. That’s 5 years more compared to the industry standard. But 5 years less compared to most other mattresses on our list.

Price

This budget-friendly mattress comes at the cost of $1049 for a queen-size.

What People are Saying:

Not sure whether the reviews are heavily influenced by the cheap price or not, but the rating for the Eco Terra Hybrid mattress is 4.9 stars out of 5. That’s an average calculated from the nearly 300 reviews on their official website.

People say the setup of this mattress is very easy, but some criticize the firmness. But this could always be due to the incorrect choice the customers made when picking the mattress’s firmness level.

Spinal Alignment

What Makes the Best Hybrid Mattress?

A hybrid mattress is made from two different types of mattresses—foam and innerspring. It is designed to combine the best of both worlds and provide a better sleeping experience as a result.

In the structure of a hybrid mattress, the foam always goes on top of the innerspring. This way the mattress offers balanced support and maximum comfort.

Now let’s see what kind of foam and coils can be found inside a hybrid mattress.

Different Types of Foam

Memory Foam

(Traditional and Plant-Based)

When it comes to the varieties of memory foam, there are two main types: ordinary and plant-based.

Traditional memory foam is an inexpensive material that provides that slow-response feeling. It contours to the body and cuddles you as you sleep. However, it is also known to retain heat.

Plant-based memory foam is much more responsive and breathable. It is also much healthier since a lot of petroleum-based materials get cut out of the manufacturing process.

Read more about memory foam mattresses.

Gel Memory Foam

Gel foam is memory foam infused with gel particles. Though, in some cases, the gel layer is evenly spread on top of the memory foam instead of being spread out through the foam.

Gel foam mattresses are known to be more cooling when compared to ordinary memory foam, and also more responsive.

Latex Foam

When it comes to latex foam, there are three different types:

  • Natural latex
  • Synthetic latex
  • Blended latex

Natural latex foam is manufactured from the sap of rubber trees. It is durable, eco-friendly, and comfortable. However, it can also be expensive.

Synthetic latex foam is a close replica of natural latex foam. But instead of being natural and eco-friendly, it is manufactured from petroleum-based materials. This type of foam is cheaper, but also less durable and comfortable.

Blended latex foam is a mixture of synthetic and natural latex.

Different Types of Innerspring Coils

As far as innerspring coils go, there are four main types:

  • Bonnell
  • Offset
  • Continuous
  • Pocketed

Bonnell coils are shaped like an hourglass with rounded tops and bottoms. Bonnell coils are cost-efficient to produce, making them a popular (and affordable) choice. However, they are lacking in regards to comfort and durability and can often be fairly bouncy.

Offset coils are very similar to Bonnell coils, albeit not as popular. They are slightly more durable, and therefore a little pricier.

A continuous coil is one long wire twisted into S shapes to fill the mattress. This type of coil is the least popular choice when it comes to innerspring mattresses.

Pocketed coils are individual springs wrapped in fabric. This is the most popular choice of coil in a good quality mattress. They are silent, durable, and comfortable, but they come at a more expensive price.

Pros and Cons of Hybrid Mattresses

While hybrid mattresses are definitely a clever combination of two quality materials, they do have both pros and cons.

Pros of a hybrid mattress:

  • The foam ensures the spine’s alignment and support, helping it stay in a natural and healthy position all night.
  • The coils provide targeted pressure point relief.
  • The innerspring portion of the mattress offers added breathability.
  • Typically it comes with a vast choice of firmness levels.

Cons of a hybrid mattress:

  • They generally come with a higher price tag.
  • They are not as durable as other types of mattresses.
  • Hybrid mattresses are heavier than other types of mattresses.
