What is a hybrid mattress?

A hybrid mattress- or combination mattress - is a multi-layered mattress that combines springs and foam layers for the best of both comfort and support. They're a fantastic option if you love the bounce and support of a pocket sprung mattress, with the comfort of foam. They're also perfect if you often switch sleeping positions.

What are the benefits of a hybrid mattress?

They have many benefits. They're super-comfy, perfectly supportive - and they provide plenty of pressure relief, too. Hybrid mattresses are some of the comfiest mattresses around! The foam layer - whether that's memory foam, cooling gel or latex contours to your unique shape and gives your mattress a soothing feel. When combined with the supportive pocket springs underneath, the comfort layer also gives the mattress a plush, luxurious feel. In fact, customers often describe sleeping on this type of mattress as if they're "sleeping on a cloud"!

Are hybrid mattresses better than memory foam?

Hybrid mattresses are superior in many ways. The sprung base supports your body, whilst the comfort layer provides cushioning comfort where you need it. However, many memory foam mattresses offer these benefits too!

Here are the main differences between hybrid and memory foam mattresses:

  • Hybrid mattresses have more comfort layer options
  • Conversely, memory mattresses typically only include a memory foam comfort layer.
  • Hybrid mattresses feature a sprung base
  • Whilst memory foam mattresses can include springs, they may also use a high-density foam base instead.

Memory foam mattresses are loved by many and remain a highly popular mattress type. The great news is that you don't have to sacrifice memory foam comfort in your quest for a hybrid - you can buy a hybrid memory foam mattress too!

Are hybrid mattresses good for side sleepers/stomach sleepers/back sleepers?

Whether you sleep on your back, side, front - or all three – a hybrid mattress is ideal. The foam layers add cushioning comfort for your hips and shoulders if you sleep on your side, and the pocket springs give great support for all sleeping positions.

Are hybrid mattresses good for back pain?

Since hybrids feature hundreds - even thousands - of individual pocket springs, you'll get top-to-toe support for every part of your body. Pocket springs deliver plenty of support for heavier areas such as your hips, and more gentle support for lighter areas. Every pocket spring reacts independently to your unique shape and body weight. That means they can deliver more, or less support - depending on the body area. The result is a perfectly tailored feel, with just the right amount of support where you need it and no more aches and pains.

Do hybrid mattresses get hot?

Many include built-in cooling technology, making them a fantastic choice if you sleep hot. From breathable covers, to cooling gel and even charcoal bamboo memory foam, hybrid mattresses include all sorts of temperature-regulating features to keep you cool.

How long do hybrid mattresses last?

They can last for many years, provided you care for them correctly. Many come with impressive warranties too.
Over time, your mattress will start to lose the comfort and support you expect from it. This is a gradual change and you may not notice it.
That's why we recommend replacing your hybrid mattress every seven years - to ensure optimal support, hygiene and quality.

Do hybrid mattresses come in a box?

Rolled up and boxed, hybrids are much easier to transport and install in your home. Known as “bed-in-a-box", they're great if you have a smaller bedroom or a narrow hallway. If you do want to test them first, they often have sleep trials attached to them and you can also try them for size in store for extra reassurance. They can be placed in a box for extra protection on their way to you. This makes them easier to deliver straight to your door - and you can enjoy your brand-new mattress sooner. This also makes them an eco-friendly option too!

Which is the best hybrid mattress?

Choosing the best hybrid mattress depends on personal preferences, including firmness, sleeping position, budget, and specific features desired. However, several hybrid mattresses consistently receive high ratings and positive reviews from both experts and consumers. The Sleepeezee Fusion Pro 800 Pocket Mattress has just won the Which? Best Buy Award and is available in all UK standard sizes from single to super king, making it the ideal replacement for any mattress in your home. Other hybrid mattresses are also available.

What is the cheapest hybrid you sell?

Sleepsoul Comfort 800 is probably our hybrid mattress on a budget all the way up to the Sleepeezee PocketGel Poise Plus 3200 Mattress. It’s worth looking at all options until you find your perfect match, plus there are so many offers that are subject to change plus some mattresses come with free bedding bundles at the moment so lots to consider.

What is the firmest hybrid you sell?

We sell a range of mattresses with varied features but one of our popular firm hybrid mattresses is the Sleepeezee Hybrid 2000 with 100% British wool filling.

Do you sell cooling hybrid mattresses?

There are many different types, and some can feel warmer or cooler than others. If you're looking for a cool, breathable mattress, we recommend gel hybrid mattresses. The layer of gel foam adds a cooler feel and when coupled with clever climate-control cover technology, you can be sure of a more comfortable night's sleep.
