What exactly is a hybrid mattress?
Hybrid mattresses combine two components from different types of systems. Though they could be of any systems, the term “hybrid” usually means spring and foam, specifically memory foam.
Best of Both Worlds
Many people are interested in the benefits of memory or latex foam. However, they may object to the overall feel of an all-foam mattress. For these sleepers, a hybrid mattress is an ideal choice. Hybrid mattresses combine an innerspring system with memory foam (or latex) to deliver the benefits of both technologies. Hybrids allow sleepers to enjoy the perfect blend of sturdy support and contouring comfort.
Hybrid mattresses typically have the same size coils as innerspring mattresses, but they also use memory foam for support and contouring. The coil system enables the mattress to retain the bounciness that sleepers enjoy on innerspring mattresses, and the layers of memory foam create that unmistakable enveloping embrace. The coil system also gives hybrid mattresses a traditional mattress shape, as opposed to the straight lines and low profile of memory foam mattresses. Hybrid mattresses are often less expensive than memory foam mattresses, and they perform better than budget memory foam mattresses. The coils in a hybrid mattress will give more contouring support than the kind of foam core that’s found in lower end memory foam mattresses.
