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, latex or Geltex. Hybrid mattresses offer great support and ultimate comfort by reaping the benefits of two mattress types.
What mattress types are usually combined?
Pocket sprung mattress
One of the most common mattress compositions used in hybrid mattresses, pocket springs offer a brilliant support layer. The individual pocket springs move independently, moulding to the contours of your body shape. They also provide edge-to-edge support and exceptional 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 bed 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. This hybrid mattress offers superior support, combined with pocket springs or an open coil spring system.
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 while maintaining body-moulding comfort. Latex makes for a much more breathable mattress as it is made from natural latex. Memory foam has strong heat retention properties because air cannot flow through when applying pressure. Often combined with open coil or pocket spring options, latex provides restful sleep by maintaining your body temperature.

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 depends on your preferred sleeping position, so browse the sleeping positions below to see which of our hybrid mattresses will be most suitable for you.
I sleep on my back or stomach
If you suffer from back or joint pain, you may opt for an option from our range of extra firm hybrid mattresses, which will offer additional support to combat these pains. 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.
I sleep on my side
Side sleepers will find that the best mattress is a soft or medium option, as you will receive cushioning to pressure points. 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 too soft and firm to support you in all positions throughout the night.
