What Is a Hybrid Mattress?

A combination of innersprings and memory foam, hybrid mattresses deliver the best of both comfort and support.

What Is a Hybrid Mattress?

A hybrid mattress is a combination of two materials, usually memory foam and innersprings. Some hybrid mattresses contain latex in place of foam. All hybrid mattresses are designed to deliver a combination feel of both comfort and support.

Do You Need a Box Spring With a Hybrid Mattress?

You will need a box spring with a hybrid mattress only if the bed frame requires a foundation. Foundation requirements are hinged upon bed frame construction and not the mattress, so, if your bed frame is self-supporting, you can rest easy knowing that your hybrid mattress can be used by itself. While most beds can be used without a foundation, if you're not sure, it's important to double-check, as using a hybrid mattress without a box spring when a box spring is necessary can damage the mattress's construction.

Are Hybrid Mattresses Good?

Hybrid mattresses are an excellent choice for all types of sleepers. Because hybrid refers to the material type and not the comfort level, you can choose hybrid mattresses in plush, firm and medium types, as fits your preferences. Compared to memory foam mattresses, hybrid mattresses often last longer, as they contain an additional element to offset pressure absorption throughout the mattress layers.

What Is a Hybrid Mattress Made Of?

A hybrid mattress is most usually made of memory foam and innerpsring. However, there are some types that contain memory foam and latex, latex and innerspring or gel foam and innerspring. Choosing the right hybrid for you comes down to how you feel sleeping on it!

Why Choose a Hybrid Mattress?

Because they merge the supportive benefits of innersprings with the comfort benefits of memory foam, hybrid mattresses are designed to meet the preferences of every type of sleeper. Available in plush, medium and firm density levels, a quality hybrid mattress is the perfect sleep solution for those who crave the best of both worlds.

If you currently find it difficult to sleep due to spinal pain or pressure, the problem could be an old or poorly made mattress – and the solution could be as simple as replacing it with the pressure-relieving foams, gels and springs of a high-quality hybrid mattress.  For the ultimate in gentle contouring, firm support and luxurious comfort, go with a hybrid! 

Hybrid Mattress for Back Sleepers

1. Revive Cooltek Copper Hybrid Medium

Cooltek copper isn’t just a cool name – it’s also an exciting feature from the Revive brand and the only one of its kind to harness the supportive feel of Revive memory foam and cooling power of the elements with real copper and a hybrid component. Among back sleepers, we particularly recommend this mattress for those who tend to overheat in the night.

2. The Revive Series 6 Hybrid

Revive’s signature Individually Wrapped Coils for supreme support, contour and motion separation distinguishes the Series 6 hybrid mattress from the rest – and makes it especially perfect for those who sleep on their backs, prefer a firmer feel and/or share a bed with a partner.

Hybrid Mattress for Side Sleepers

1. The Diamond Aspen Hybrid

Diamond’s Aspen Plush hybrid merges the support of a natural latex layer and alternating Nested Coil Layers with the contour of Open-Cell Memory Foam for the powerful comfort and forgiving pressure-relief side-sleepers need.

2. The h2 Plush

Although side sleepers need soft cushioning to allow for full relaxation of pressure-laden joints, some side sleepers simply may prefer the feel of a slightly firmer mattress – which is where the h2 Plush Hybrid by Revive comes in! Featuring a tight top and Revive’s signature dense solid foam and innersprings, the h2 falls somewhere in between plush and firm, perfect for the side sleeper looking for a soft mattress with a little extra support.

Hybrid Mattress for Stomach Sleepers
