What is a Hybrid Mattress?

You’ve probably heard about the traditional innerspring mattresses as well as the more recent memory foam beds. But now there’s a new mattress on the market: the hybrid mattress.

What is a hybrid mattress?

Hybrids combine the best features of innerspring and memory foam mattresses using both materials. If you don’t want to give up the feel of a traditional spring mattress but need the pressure relief and support provided by foam, a hybrid is the perfect choice. The body contouring and back support make hybrids an excellent option.

What’s the real difference from other mattress types?

Innerspring mattress only contain coils, and memory foam mattresses only have layers of foam. Hybrids contain roughly the same size coils as innerspring mattresses tucked under layers of foam. Because hybrids combine the best of both worlds, the mattress cost is sometimes a bit more than air beds or innerspring mattresses. A few extra pennies is a small price to pay for a few extra hours of comfortable, relaxing sleep each night.

What are the benefits?

No matter if you’re a stomach sleeper, back sleeper, or side sleeper, hybrid mattresses give your body the support it needs for a restful sleep. With hybrids, you get the bounciness from the springs as well as the phenomenal support from the memory foam. You also don’t have to worry about limited options since hybrids come in a variety of sizes from multiple companies. The breathability of hybrids further adds to their comfortable nature.
