What is a hybrid mattress?
Hybrid mattresses combine a traditional spring system
such as pocket springs or open coil with a comfort layer like memory foam
. This means that hybrid mattresses offer great support and ultimate comfort by reaping the benefits of two mattress types. Browse our extensive range of hybrid mattresses and don't forget we offer free delivery on our in-stock options as well as old mattress removal and recycling at checkout.
What mattress types are usually combined?
Pocket sprung mattress
One of the most common mattress compositions to be used in hybrid mattresses, pocket springs offer a brilliant support layer
. The individual pocket springs move independently, mould to the contours of your body shape, provide ed-to-edge support and offer amazing pressure-relieving properties
for all sleeping positions. Pocket sprung mattresses are combined with foam layers to form an unparalleled hybrid mattress that provides a great night's sleep.
Memory foam mattresses
A memory foam layer
in a hybrid mattress supplies the sinking feeling for the best night's sleep possible. The perfect mattress to provide pressure relief, the mattress surface will mould to your body shape as air seeps out of the millions of little holes that comprise memory foam. Combined with pocket springs or an open coil spring system, this kind of hybrid mattress offers superior support.
Constructed using a continuous wire that runs up and down the hybrid mattress, this kind of spring system is the perfect budget option
. Often providing firmer support for firmer mattresses, the open coil bed base combined with foam layers, Geltex or latex makes for a super comfortable hybrid mattress.
Latex offers similar properties to memory foam mattresses
, however, they offer a much more breathable sleep surface whilst maintaining body-moulding comfort properties. Latex makes for a much more breathable mattress as it is made from natural latex, whilst memory foam has strong heat retention properties because air cannot flow through one pressure is applied. Often combined with open coil
or pocket spring options
, latex will provide a restful sleep by keeping your body temperature maintained.

What is the right hybrid mattress for the way I sleep?
It's hard to find the right sleeping solution for you, especially considering the extensive range of hybrid mattresses we feature at Mattressman
. The right hybrid mattress for you depends on what sleeping position you prefer to sleep in
, so browse the range of sleeping positions below to see which of our hybrid mattresses will be most suitable for you.
I sleep on my back or stomach
For preferred stomach or back sleepers, a firm mattress will promote healthy spine alignment when you sleep in these positions. Such a mattress surface will also encourage even weight distribution and pressure relief. If you suffer from back or joint pain, you may wish to opt for an option from our range of extra firm hybrid mattresses which will be able to offer additional support in order to combat these pains.
I sleep on my side
In order to receive extra cushioning to pressure points like the shoulders and hips, side sleepers will find that the best mattress for them is a soft or medium option.
This will adequately promote healthy spinal alignment and posture all night long.
I sleep in all positions
If you find yourself tossing and turning at night, a medium firm
hybrid mattress is best suited to you. This is because it's neither too soft nor too firm to support you in all positions throughout the night.
