What is a Hybrid Mattress?
A hybrid mattress is a multi-layer bed that combines memory foam, latex, or gel along with an innerspring system. Sleepers can experience both the pressure relief of the foam layers and the sturdy feel of a classic spring mattress. Talk about the perfect blend!
Let’s dive into the hype around these beds and how they’re changing the (sleeping) game.
What are the components of a hybrid bed?
Let’s take a look under the covers at the components of these hybrid beds and what makes them unique:
The Casper Hybrid was developed by our sleep labs to achieve this hybrid appeal. Bouncy support and pillowy comfort are built into the bed’s four support foundations.
The Wave Hybrid gets some bonus points by adding gel and latex. This power combination cradles sleepers in a decadent, heat-free sleep.
The quality factors of a hybrid mattress such as its foam density, foam firmness, coil count, and coil gauge (thickness) are also important to consider on your quest for the right mattress.
What is the difference between a hybrid mattress and a memory foam mattress?
Memory foam mattresses are often buzzed about in the mattress world. Combining layers of foam, these beds react to body heat and pressure to mold to the curves of your body. The viscoelastic material absorbs excess motion, allowing you to melt into the mattress.
Hybrid mattresses unite memory foam and a foundation of pocket-wrapped coils. The springs provide that “jump on the bed” feel that people love in a spring mattress while the foam envelops you with that cloud-like embrace.
What is the difference between a hybrid mattress and a gel mattress?
A gel mattress contains both gel and foam. Liquid gel is infused in the foam, providing a heat-diffusing environment to keep you cool during your slumber. A hybrid mattress may contain gel, but also contains foam and springs for additional support.
How long do hybrid mattresses last?
Do you need a box spring with a hybrid mattress?
Unlike a traditional mattress, hybrid mattresses do not need a divan and can be set on slatted platform beds. If you desire more height, you can opt to set the mattress on a divan. For more customization, adjustable bed frames can be used to shift the mattresses and move your head and feet to where they can get comfy.
Is a hybrid mattress good for back pain?
A key component to preventing back pain is to align your spine and maintain good posture. A mattress that is too firm or not firm enough won’t support your spine at your neck and lower back. A gap between your body and the mattress means these areas lack support.
Hybrids can go a long way in taking care of your back pain. The targeted foam layers can help cushion these spinal points, raise the hips, and relax your muscles and ligaments. The springs provide that nice bounce-back for enhanced support, while gels can enhance your overall sleep quality.
How much does a hybrid mattress cost?
A quality queen-size hybrid bed mattress costs $1,650 on average, with high-end models reaching as high as $4,000.
At Casper, we believe your best sleep ever shouldn’t need that high-end price tag. A queen-size Casper Hybrid provides a comfortable sleep for $1,295. For those who want a more decadent, luxurious sleep, the ultra-cool, 5-layer queen Wave Hybrid is $2,595.
With their blend of comfort and support, hybrid mattresses provide your sleep with the best of both worlds. Ready to go hybrid? Discover what it means to have your most comfortable sleep with The Casper Hybrid and The Wave Hybrid.
