Hybrid mattresses offer the best of both worlds with the contour of memory foam comfort layers and the superior support of pocket springs. With the balance of pressure point relief and spine alignment, hybrid mattress customers report some of the best sleep experiences.
However, not all hybrid mattresses get top marks. Due to shifting comfort layers, some mattresses that use natural fibres and batting in the top layers have reported issues with dipping over shorter than average periods.
While hybrid mattresses may come with natural fibres, foam, or latex comfort layers, the most popular hybrid designs are constructed with memory foam above pocket springs due to how well the contour of memory foam works with the support of pocket sprung mattresses. The Dreamcloud mattress is highly rated in the UK for its luxurious foam layers, durable spring system, and high value price.
Another feature worth studying is the addition of micro-springs in some mattress models, which offers a feel similar to foam and other responsive fibres but with added longevity. The Simba mattress offers micro-springs in their hybrid mattresses. Their Simba Hybrid® Pro offers superior pressure point relief blended with stable support from both micro-springs and a higher pocket spring system.
