What is a Hybrid Mattress?: Our Guide

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

You may be asking “What is a hybrid mattress?”. This is a great question, which we’ll be answering in this latest blog post. Be sure to read on to learn more about what a hybrid mattress consists of, and why you should choose BedPlanet if you’re looking for a high-quality hybrid mattress, paired with amazing customer service; every step of the way.

What is a Hybrid Mattress Made Of?


A hybrid mattress is a combination of a traditional spring-loaded mattress with a memory foam mattress element embedded throughout. A hybrid mattress is often referred to as the “Goldilocks” of mattresses because it’s “just right” for many, many people. The benefits of having the support of a traditional innerspring mattress, paired with a memory foam, gel, or latex style filling can provide side sleepers, back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and more with the good night’s rest they’ve been searching for!

Pros and Cons of a Hybrid Mattress

The pros of a hybrid mattress consist of the following:

  • Great quality, and long-lasting in most cases: This positive is due to the fact the hybrid mattress has both the support of innersprings, combined with the contouring nature of gel, memory foam, or latex. This hybrid combination typically yields an overall longer-lasting, better performing mattress over the years.
  • Adaptable to many body types & styles of sleepers: The hybrid mattress has the ability to simultaneously contour and support many different body types (large, small, big & tall) with ease while also comfortably supporting the diverse sleeping styles we all have.

The cons of choosing a hybrid mattress consist of the following:

  • Higher Cost: A hybrid mattress will typically run you a bit more than either a standard innerspring mattress, or a standard gel, latex, or memory foam mattress. This is typically due to higher production costs derived from combining multiple styles of materials within one mattress, and the engineering and design elements associated with a hybrid mattress.

Who Should Choose a Hybrid Mattress? 

If you’re seeking out both support from a traditional innerspring mattress, yet you also want the comforting contouring of a softer memory foam style mattress; the hybrid mattress is most likely the right choice for you. Many people will find the hybrid mattress style to again be just right, for their sleeping needs thanks to the combination of innersprings and memory foam technology.

Hybrid vs Memory Foam

Hybrid mattresses offer the best of both worlds, as stated above, yet some mattress buyers may want a pure memory foam mattress for the ultimate contouring experience, density, quietness, and temperature regulation. Memory foam mattresses do offer all of these benefits, so if that sounds more suitable for your sleeping patterns, check out our memory foam mattresses right here!

Hybrid vs Innerspring Mattress

Again, hybrid mattresses do offer the best of both worlds, and we highly recommend you check out our wide selection of hybrid mattresses right here. However, if you want a traditional innerspring mattress, you’ll find them to be more affordable than a hybrid mattress in most cases, but that’s where the benefits typically end. A traditional innerspring mattress typically cannot contour to your body the same way a hybrid mattress can with its innerspring and memory foam components.

How Long Do Hybrid Mattresses Last?

Hybrid mattresses last on average around 7 years. This average length of time can be extended if you rotate your mattress 180 degrees every few months, and if you use a mattress protector to prevent any accumulation of dust, debris, allergens, fluids, etc… Check out our mattress protectors to extend the life of your hybrid mattress.
