Memory Foam or Hybrid Mattresses?

Memory Foam or Hybrid Mattresses?

Memory foam, pocket springs or a hybrid combination of both? That's the big question for many mattress buyers these days...

Two of the latest mattress trends

Just a few years ago, memory foam mattresses were all the rage in the quest for a better night’s sleep. Space age technology, adapting to any body shape and offering sublime comfort - what's not to like?  Whilst still a highly popular choice today, there’s now a new, cutting edge mattress option on the market - the Hybrid. 

Offering a "best of both worlds" combination of pocket spring support and the latest comfort foams, Hybrid mattresses are one of the hottest sleep trends right now. 

So, how do you decide if memory foam or a Hybrid mattress is right for you?

If you like the sound of both, but don't know how to choose; we’ve outlined the unique features and benefits of both mattress types. 

Memory Foam Mattresses

Designed and developed by NASA in the 1960’s, memory foam is visco elastic and moulds itself to your body - offering a cradling level of support. Reacting to heat and pressure, these mattresses can help to aid circulation, correct posture, align your spine and relieve joint pressure. Exceptional hypoallergenic properties mean that memory foam can be a perfect solution for allergy sufferers.

Sounds good? Before you hit the buy button, it’s important to also consider the potential downsides of memory foam too. As it’s a completely synthetic material, it’s not naturally breathable and instead reflects your body heat back towards you. This can lead to a hot and sweaty night’s sleep. For those who find it difficult getting in and out of bed, with little or no bounce, this also has to be taken into account. If the positives outweigh the negatives for you, then a memory foam mattress is a great buy.

Hybrid Mattresses

A hybrid mattress strives to combine the latest memory foam products with the traditional benefits of bouncy pocket springs. This best of both worlds approach typically features supportive pocket coils in the base and memory foam (or latex) in the comfort layer. The result - a balanced and dreamy blend of zonal support and comfort.

Should you still expect a hot night’s sleep from a hybrid? Not necessarily. Many manufacturers have developed their own advanced solutions to breathability. MLILY infuse their memory foam with advanced cooling gel. This, combined with airtech borders, decreases heat retention and provides a breathable sleep surface. Kaymed, on the other hand, add unique, heat reducing copper particles to their Therma-Phase materials.

Looking for a little more bounce in your mattress? Are you a side sleeper? If so, a firmer hybrid mattress could be a great option for you.
