We’ve all heard of hybrid cars, such as the Prius. Hybrid is usually referred to as an electric vehicle that uses two types of power such as a traditional combustion engine and an electric generator. Well move over vehicles, and get ready for a new type of hybrid. So, what exactly is a hybrid mattress? Find out more as we explain the pros and cons of a hybrid mattress and what they are exactly.
A hybrid mattress combines innerspring and memory foam materials. By combining materials, you experience the benefits of both mattress technologies. If you seek exceptional support with the luxury of comfort, then this type of mattress is ideal for your sleeping needs.
Most hybrid beds contain three layers: base foam, coil support core, and memory foam or latex. You can also find an added layer with a pillow or euro topper for added comfort. The foam base layer, provides extra padding for stability. The coil support core ensures that motion transfer is minimized. This is great for customers who share a bed with their partner or kids! The memory foam or latex layer provides superior comfort. Many of these comfort layers also feature cooling capabilities through copper elements.
There are many benefits to this type of bed. If you are a side sleeper, this mattress offers exceptional spinal alignment and pressure point relief. Do you get hot while you sleep?
