As with conventional foam and spring mattresses, when it comes to hybrids, there is no one mattress that is perfect for everyone. And chances are you’ll have to try out a range of beds to find one that’s ‘perfect’. In this guide, we share what to expect when shopping for a hybrid mattress and offer some of our favorite options to get you started. (For more on strategies for finding the right mattress, check out our guide on how to choose a mattress.)
Leesa Sapira hybrid mattress
With its balance of cuddly, durable foam and springs that are just springy enough, the Leesa Sapira Hybrid has always pleased our testers since 2018.
*At the time of publication, the price was $1,550.
A favorite since we first tested a version of it in 2018, the 11-inch-thick Leesa Sapira Hybrid balances the cushion that hugs curves with a bit of bounce. We like that the foam is dense (and therefore durable) at 4 pounds per cubic foot. The blanket also looks and feels just as substantial. Coils for a queen exceed 1000 count, providing pressure relief support; each coil is individually pocketed to prevent sleeping partners from waking tossing and turning. The Leesa Sapira Hybrid is medium-firm, so it’s perfect for those who sleep in all three positions, although side sleepers who prefer softer mattresses may find it too firm. For most people, including those over 200 pounds, this mattress should hold up to its 10-year warranty without sagging. You can return it within 100 days for a full refund.
Tempur-Adapt (medium hybrid)
The abundant memory foam of the Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid) molds to the contours of your body. And with the help of over 1,000 coils, it offers a sturdy, medium-firm feel and excellent edge support.
The 11-inch-thick Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid) is tighter, slightly firmer, and less bouncy than the Leesa Sapira Hybrid. So it can be a dream come true for people who love slow, irresistible hugs and just need a tiny bit of stretch to help them move around in bed more easily. Memory foam layers are durable at 4½ pounds per cubic foot, with sturdy edge support. A good option for back and stomach sleepers, the mattress is medium firm. But with its meticulous pressure-relieving properties, it should also suit side sleepers who prefer firmer beds. We think the Tempur-Adapt should last at least through its 10-year warranty for most people, including those over 200 pounds. If you don’t like the Tempur-Adapt, you can return it within 90 days for a refund (less shipping, which can exceed $100).
A layer of coils, including firm coils around the perimeter, give the WinkBed resilience and sturdy edge support. And the thick cushion top cradles without feeling sticky or runny.
*At the time of publication, the price was $1,300.
In construction and feel – with sturdy edges, plenty of support coils and a padded cover (instead of a sock) – the 13½-inch-thick WinkBed (Luxury Firm) is closer to a spring than of a hybrid. But a 2021 redesign replaced the WinkBed’s top layer microcoils with a thick polyfoam pillowtop, giving the bed a less puffy and fluffier mid-firm feel. If we miss the softness of the original version, the quality of the components (high density foam and thick springs) is still there. We think the mattress is still a good investment for those who find it comfortable. The WinkBed also comes with a lifetime warranty and a 120-day trial period.
