A look into hybrid mattresses – the newest and most comfortable mattress on the market
We recently explored the return of adjustable beds’ popularity. Now we want to turn our focus to another popular bed: the hybrid mattress.
When most people hear “hybrid,” they think of cars. But lately the term has been getting a lot of buzz in the mattress world too. And for good reason. Hybrid mattresses offer the perfect balance of comfort and support by combining memory foam with pocketed springs.
So what exactly is a hybrid mattress?
To answer this question, we’re going to dive into each component of hybrid mattresses and how they all do their part to help you get a great night’s sleep.
What Makes Up A Hybrid Mattress?
Memory foam’s comfort is out of this world. In fact, it was literally invented by NASA to help improve their seat cushioning and crash protection. Its viscoelastic substance allows the foam to mold to your body and evenly distribute your body weight.
This astronaut-approved foam also reacts to your body’s temperature, becoming softer as your body heat rises. This is especially beneficial when it comes to pain points, which have an average temperature higher than the rest of the body. The foam will mold itself according to your aches and pains, providing relief and letting your body recover quicker.
Memory foam can also help make sure your spine is properly aligned when you’re lying down. This can help solve a lot of spinal problems in the long run, which your back will thank you for.
Of course, comfort isn’t the only important feature of a good mattress. You’ll also need a strong support system. Enter: the innerspring.
Innersprings are metal coils in the mattress that “push back” on your bodyweight. This gives your body the support it needs to keep your spine aligned properly. These springs also let the mattress breathe, especially compared to traditional foam mattresses. They also provide a certain bounce that can help you get in and out of bed and switch sleeping positions. Plus they help with some of the more intimate activities.
But there are more than one kind of innerspring system. And while different spring systems each have their own benefits, the best of the bunch is the pocketed spring.
Pocketed springs are coils in the mattress that are individually wrapped in fabric. This fabric allows them to contour to your bodyweight independent of each other. This is what separates pocketed springs from traditional innersprings, where all the surrounding coils will react in unison to pressure.
Because they don’t completely affect their surrounding springs, you’ll be able to move around in bed without waking your partner. These springs could literally save your relationship.
Memory foam is an amazing invention. But memory foam infused with cooling gel puts the “ice” in “icing on the cake.”
For all the great benefits memory foam provides, it does tend to trap in heat. This can increase your body temperature while you sleep. Fortunately, we have a great solution for that with our cooling gel. By infusing cooling gel into the memory foam, you’re able to get a comfortable and cool sleep. This is especially helpful for all you human furnaces that have a higher body temperature.
Studies have shown that your body’s core temperature needs to drop in order to start falling asleep. Furthermore, sleeping with a colder temperature can decrease insomnia, increase your release of melatonin, and improve your overall sleep quality.
Aside from the advantages cooling gel can bring to your sleep, it also improves the actual memory foam. Gel infused memory foam is airier and more breathable thanks to an improved open-cell structure. Gel mattresses also give more support, since the cooling gel makes the foam more resilient to body heat.
Speaking of staying cool, some of the more luxurious hybrid mattresses include natural cashmere fibers for even more breathability and a cooler sleep.
You probably know about the use of cashmere in clothing. You might even own a few nice cashmere sweaters or scarves. And who can blame you? Cashmere’s soft and lightweight fibers make any article of clothing unbelievably comfortable.
But while many equate cashmere with a feeling of warmth, you might be surprised to learn of its cooling properties. Cashmere has the magical ability to regulate temperature. The fabric that keeps you snug in the winter can also help you keep cool during the summer.
We added cashmere to our Hybrid Infinity Cool Luxury mattress to give you a better sleep. You’ll get all the great benefits of a hybrid mattress, with the temperature-regulation, softness, and durability of cashmere.
