Choosing The Best Mattress Type: The Hybrid Mattress


Our journey through Choosing the Best Mattress Type is drawing to a close. We conclude our series with a look at the newest type of mattress, the hybrid.

What Is A Hybrid Mattress?

As discussed in our dedicated hybrid mattress article, hybrid mattress is a relatively new design concept popularized by many brands today. The concept and design developed as a result of consumers seeking to find a more customized mattress solution for their personal sleep style. They generally combine the support and bounce of an innerspring mattress with the comfort and pressure relief of memory foam or latex.

Hybrid mattresses combine a variety of materials based on consumer requested support and comfort needs. A range of hybrid mattress types today now offer a mix of fabric-covered innerspring coils and latex, or latex and other synthetic compounds like gel, etc. These unique blends offer a firm support core mixed with softer foams to create a comfortable, body contouring- feel when you lay on top of the mattress. One of the more popular hybrid mattresses uses a combination of fabric-covered innerspring for core support with a memory foam (visco) top.

The hybrid mattress can offer varied support levels with a softer, fairly unique feel and touch. Depending on the blend of materials, they often support healthy airflow and cooling, while also maintaining a minimal level of motion transfer. This is a great option for those with partners whose sleep style can differ greatly from their own!

City Mattress Hybrid Recommendations

How do you choose a blend of ingredients in a hybrid mattress that is right for you? Our advice is to test many different hybrid types and brands, as the mattresses can vary widely in their features and benefits as well as price ranges, blend of materials and warranty coverage. Due to the blending of varied materials used in hybrid mattresses, we always suggest asking your expert sales representative to clearly describe what materials are used in the design and manufacturing of each mattress you test in the store.

Once you have tested a variety of mattresses, your sales representative can help you make the final decision based on your personal needs.

Here are a few hybrid mattresses we recommend:

Serta I-Comfort Hybrid - We recommend trying the Blue Fusion 100, 200, and 300 lines.
