12. Hybrid mattress FAQ
We personally research and test the latest hybrid mattresses to provide accurate and unbiased recommendations, using review data to inform our rankings. Read our mattress methodology for more.
The best hybrid mattresses deliver that magic combo of temperature control, pressure relief, responsiveness and edge support. Within a hybrid mattress, you'll find comfort layers of either memory foam or latex coupled with coils and springs. This type of mattress is ideal for those who want the cushioned comfort of memory foam and the breathability and support of an innerspring bed. It's the best of all worlds.
Peep our official best mattress guide and you'll find plenty of hybrid mattresses, including Saatva, Helix and The Dreamcloud. Our professional reviewers have tested dozens of hybrid mattresses – and we've used our test data plus consumer research to curate this expert-led list. What's more, all of our picks are discounted as part of this week's Cyber Monday mattress deals (rolling over from the Black Friday mattress deals). Given that hybrids tend to cost more than foam- or spring-based beds alone, you'll want to take advantage of any mattress sales to score the lowest prices.
Remember that when choosing the right hybrid mattress, keep in mind your body type, whether you sleep hot, and if you share your bed or sleep solo. As a rule, the best hybrid mattresses sleep cooler than memory foam mattresses because the coils or springs inside a hybrid create space for air to circulate and heat to dissipate.

Best hybrid mattress: Quick list
In a rush and want to know our top picks for different sleep needs and budgets? Then here are our recommendations for this year's best hybrid mattress, backed by our in-house review data and consumer review research. Look further down this guide for our in-depth mattress analysis and full hybrid mattress reviews.
Type: Custom hybrid
Feel: Soft to firm
Price: From $1,095
The Saatva Classic is without question the best hybrid mattress in the world. And because it comes in two heights and three firmness options, it suits all types of sleepers. This handcrafted innerspring hybrid is designed to replicate a luxury hotel mattress in your bedroom, so expect serious comfort. It comes on a 365-night trial, plus there’s a lifetime warranty and free White Glove Delivery (includes removing your old mattress).
Price: From $499
The DreamCloud is a great budget alternative to the Saatva Classic, and is over $900 cheaper in a queen size. After long-term testing, we also rate The DreamCloud as the best option for back and stomach sleepers who need a firmer sleep surface for healthy spine alignment. Considering the high build quality, The DreamCloud is the one to beat on price. Like Saatva, you get a 365-night trial and lifetime warranty.
Best for side sleepers
Price: From $936
The Helix Midnight is simply the best side sleeper mattress money can buy, having been designed purposefully for this sleep position. It's also cool and contouring, reducing pressure points on your shoulders, hips and knees to help you sleep deeper at night. The trial period is shorter at 100 nights, but that’s still more than the 30-night minimum trial we recommend to people buying a mattress in a box online.
Best for pressure relief
Price: From $995
Our second Saatva mattress offers more contouring, pressure relief and motion isolation than the Saatva Classic. However, the Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid does not offer the same level of customization and it doesn’t sleep as cool as the Classic. That said, if you want a Saatva mattress that marries the best of memory foam with the bounce and responsiveness of an innerspring, then this is the best hybrid mattress for you. Again, you’ll get a 365-night trial and lifetime warranty.
Best for RVs
Type: Cooling hybrid
Feel: Soft to firm
Price: From $999
If you’re hitting the road and want the best hybrid mattress for RV use, check out the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Luxe Hybrid. You can buy it in a range of mattress sizes, including RV King and RV Bunk. The other big attraction with the Aurora Luxe Hybrid is its cooling functionality, making it a good choice for people prone to overheating at night. The mattress comes in three levels of firmness, like the Saatva Classic, so it will suit most bodies and sleep positions. Brooklyn Bedding offers a 120-night trial and a 10-year warranty.
Best motion isolation
Price: From $1,349
The Nectar Premier Hybrid is a step up from the Nectar Original in terms of comfort and breathability, but it isn’t as cooling as the Nectar Copper Hybrid. We recommend it as the best pick for you if you enjoy a firmer mattress that offers good pressure relief and strong edge support, enabling you to sleep right up to the edge without any dip in support. Monthly Nectar mattress sales reduce this luxury hybrid by up to 33%, so you can usually buy a queen size for $1,199.

Best for big bodies
Type: Luxury hybrid
Price: From $1,349
The firmer feel WinkBed Plus hybrid mattress is designed to add ample comfort and full body support to people who weigh over 250lbs+. WinkBeds has designed it with Extra-Edge anti-sag support, as well as a 3-Step Back Relief System to reduce back pain during sleep. We also rate the SleepCalm motion isolation technology, which is particularly helpful if you share with a restless sleeper. The WinkBed Plus is simply the best hybrid mattress for bigger and taller bodies.
Best organic hybrid
Type: Latex hybrid
Price: From $1,099
The Awara is made from natural latex and temperature regulating New Zealand wool, both of which contribute to deep pressure relief and a cooler feel. Latex is more responsive than memory foam too, so people seeking a natural hybrid mattress with bounce are best-suited to the Awara. The price is affordable for a natural mattress, with a queen size often reduced to $999. As it’s a sister brand to Nectar Sleep, you can expect the same 365-night trial and lifetime warranty perks here.
Best cooling hybrid
Type: Cooling hybrid
Price: From $2,895
In general, hybrid mattresses sleep cooler than all-foam beds because air flows better around their springs/coils. The Casper Wave Hybrid Snow takes that to another level, using the latest cooling technology to dissipate excess heat so it doesn’t build up. The Casper is also one of the best hybrid mattresses for back pain support, so there are plenty of pros to this luxury offering. You’ll have 100 nights to trial it at home, and there's a 10-year warranty.
Best for guest room use
Type: Budget hybrid
Price: From $174.99
We’ve included the Linenspa Memory Foam Hybrid as the best choice for guest rooms, but many customers rate it well for use as a kids and teens mattress too. While it sacrifices many of the comforts found on the other hybrid beds in this guide, it still delivers decent comfort and support for the price. Stomach and back sleepers will be the most comfortable sleeping on it, so look further up this list if you sleep on your side.

Best hybrid mattress overall
The Saatva Classic is the highest-rated bed in America, and after our year-long review we still believe it's the best hybrid mattress money can buy. The Classic is a very luxurious mattress that's priced very competitively (a queen size often discounted to $1,695) considering its handmade from premium materials. These include CertiPUR-US foams and recycled steel coils, plus a contouring 3" Euro top designed to add extra lumbar support in the center third of the mattress.
You can buy the Saatva Classic in one of three different comfort levels: plush soft (rated a 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale), luxury firm (rated a 5-7 on the firmness scale), and firm (rated an 8 out of 10). Saatva's best-selling hybrid also comes in two different heights (11.5" or 14.5") to better suit your body. It looks and feels like a traditional innerspring mattress and it is finished to an almost immaculate standard. Even after a year's full testing, our Saatva Classic is still in pristine condition with zero sagging or dips in support.
The overall design focuses on keeping your spine comfortably aligned during sleep so that you don't wake up with aches and pains – and any existing issues are greatly reduced. We've had pregnant people and those with back pain test the Saatva Classic as part of our wider review panel, and they all found it incredibly comfortable. We can only speak for the Luxury Firm option though as that is the one we have tested.
Even though the Saatva Classic is made using foams, it is nothing like a memory foam mattress – there's minimal sink-in here, even from the soft version. If you want a softer hybrid, try the Helix Midnight instead. Otherwise, we'd highly recommend the Saatva Classic as the best hybrid mattress for all sleep positions and light to average body weights (look at the Saatva HD if you want a good mattress for heavy people).
This hybrid sleeps cool, distributes body weight evenly, and offers comfortable lumbar support and pressure relief. There is some motion transfer, so keep that in mind if you share with a very restless sleeper. You'll have 365 nights to trial it for yourself at home, plus it comes with free White Glove Delivery: the team will set up your new mattress in your bedroom, and take your old bed with them when they leave.
Saatva Classic: was $1,095, now from $695 at Saatva
Use our exclusive link to take $400 off orders of $1,000 or more at Saatva this Black Friday. It's eligible on all sizes of the Saatva Classic and drops the cost of a queen to $1,595, which is one of the prices we've seen for it all year. Considering this is a luxury innerspring hybrid mattress made with premium materials, that is an astoundingly low price. You get a lifetime warranty too and a one-year trial, too.
Best affordable hybrid mattress
The DreamCloud mattress is the best hybrid mattress for most people, delivering outstanding comfort, great temperature regulation and a luxe feel for a surprisingly affordable price. Although the brand rates this model as a 6.5 on the firmness scale, we judged it to be around an 8/10, with excellent hip and back support. Despite being on the firmer side, the thick layer of foam in the top section contours comfortably to the body and provides consistent pressure relief, while the cashmere-blend, quilted cover adds a touch of extra, luxe-feeling cushioning.
These foams sit on top of a base of wrapped coils, which add a little bounce and boost breathability. All this means the DreamCloud works just as well for side sleepers seeking a little sink-in comfort, as for back and stomach sleepers who need to remain more on top of the mattress. You may find it too firm if you weigh under 130lb though, in which case check out one of the softer options in our ranking, such as the Helix Midnight.
It's also a great choice for couples – hybrids are bouncier than all-foam mattresses so it isn't uncommon for them to transfer more motion from one side of the bed to the other, but our testers didn't find this to be the case with the DreamCloud. We feel confident in recommending this hybrid mattress to anyone who shares a bed with a restless sleeper.
Happily, the DreamCloud is one of the most affordable models in our hybrid mattress ranking. You can discard those MSRPs, as there's an evergreen DreamCloud mattress sale that reduces the price of a queen to around $999, taking it into the mid-range price bracket and earning it a high-up spot in our best mattress under $1,000 ranking. And you'll usually get a big free bedding bundle included, too. If you have a little more cash to splash, check out the Saatva above, but otherwise, this is an outstanding all-rounder that most sleepers will be extremely happy with.

The DreamCloud: was
$839, now from $449 at DreamCloud
For Black Friday, DreamCloud is cutting 40% off the MSRP, which is a rather typical offer from them. However, it's still an incredible value considering a queen costs $799. Free bedding is no longer included but you can add a bundle for as low as $79. As always, you'll get a lifetime warranty and a 365-night trial with purchase.
Best hybrid mattress for side sleepers
The Midnight has a softer sleep surface, making it especially suitable for those who like to lie on their sides. In fact, we rate this hybrid as the best mattress for side sleepers – the plush mix of contouring memory foam and responsive polyfoam hugs your body, cushioning your shoulders, hips and knees comfortably in this position.
During our tests, we were especially impressed with the pressure relief here. It's too soft for most stomach sleepers though, who should opt for something firmer to ensure their spine is properly aligned. You may also want to upgrade to the Helix Midnight Plus if you weigh above average, as you'll need more support than is offered here.
The spring layer delivers a bit of bounce and also boosts breathability (our testers were all impressed with the temperature regulation here). Like the DreamCloud right above it, the Midnight hybrid mattress is also great at isolating motion, which is good news if you're sharing a bed with a restless sleeper.
- Read more: Helix Midnight mattress review
Helix Midnight: from
$936 $702.20 at Helix Sleep
Helix's current deal knocks 25% off, taking the price of a queen size Midnight down to $999. Thanks to a drop in MSRP, this is the lowest price we've ever seen, matching last year's Black Friday pricing. The regular Helix mattress sale only knocks 20% off, so you'll want to catch this before it reverts back. You'll get two free pillows, too.
Best hybrid mattress for pressure relief
If you have a slightly bigger budget, our favorite premium hybrid mattress is the Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid, a five-layer mattress that's well-constructed with high-quality materials. In our tests, we found it offered outstanding support, with a medium-firm feel that ensures your spine stays properly aligned. Despite an upper layer of memory foam, there's not too much of a body-contouring feel. Instead, our tester found it delivered a weightless feel that relieved pressure on their joints very effectively. However, some will find it too firm, and might prefer a plusher option such as the Helix right above it.
In fact, aside from the fact that this mattress might lack the softness preferred by some, we found very little to complain about with this bed. It delivered good temperature regulation properties, excellent edge support, and abosrbed movements well, making it a good choice for couples.
In this bracket it's also worth considering the Saatva Classic, which is our favorite mattress overall. We opted to include the Memory Foam Hybrid in this guide mainly because the design is that of a traditional hybrid, whereas the classic is more of an innerspring, with only a little foam. The Classic is marginally more expensive, adds a pillow-top and is available in three firmnesses and two heights.
Both the Classic and Memory Foam Hybrid are on the pricier side, so it's definitely worth keeping an eye out for a good Saatva mattress sale to take the price down a bit (these happen regularly, with the top discounts tending to appear around big sales events). The extras are the best you'll find anywhere: there's free white glove delivery to your room of choice (especially useful as all of these beds are delivered flat rather than vacuum packed and rolled), a full year's trial period and a lifetime warranty. If you can afford it, this is an excellent investment. Read our guide to the biggest mistakes people make when buying a mattress online to know what to avoid.

Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid: $400 off orders over $1,000 at Saatva
Head to Saatva using our exclusive link above and you'll unlock a special discount that knocks $400 off your purchase. There's a minimum spend of $1,000, which means it'll kick in on the Twin XL size and bigger, and a queen size will cost you $1,395 rather than $1,795. It's among the better prices we've seen for this mattress all year.
Best hybrid mattress for RVs
If you have a tendency to sleep hot, hybrid mattresses are a great choice as the coil layers promote airflow and help to keep temperatures down in the night. And some, like the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Luxe hybrid mattress, also feature cooling technology for an even more comfortable night. This mattress has a cooling top weave with a copper-infused foam layer beneath it, both of which work effectively to prevent overheating while you sleep. On a balance of features to value, we rate this as the best cooling mattress around (although those with a bigger budget should consider the Casper Wave Hybrid Snow (#9), which will deliver more powerful cooling, for a price).
Between the Aurora's three top layers of foam and its high density base foam, there's a zoned layer of individually-wrapped Ascension coils delivering support so you don't sink in too deeply and helping with airflow too. The end result is a thoroughly comfortable and supportive mattress that should suit most sleeping styles. You can pick your firmness preference, from soft to firm, which means it can be adapted to suit a wide range of sleepers.
We tested the middle option (rated 4-5), and it was perfect for our petite side-sleeping main reviewer. Back or stomach sleepers should consider the firmer option (6-8). If you're a side sleeper with a preference for something ultra-plush, the soft option is the softest mattress on this list, with a rating of 2-4.
We had a couple of minor complaints that are worth being aware of. The first is that the smooth top weave of this mattress is quite slippery, which means that both you and your fitted sheet may slide around a little. We were also a little disappointed by the motion isolation here, which could make this mattress a hard pass if you share a bed with a restless partner.

Brooklyn Aurora Luxe: from
$999 $699.30 at Brooklyn Bedding
There's 30% off Brooklyn Bedding mattresses this month for Black Friday, which means a queen size drops down to $1,305.50. That's a very good value for such a luxurious hybrid mattress. If you have a little more budget to invest in comfier sleep, we think the pillow-top upgrade is well worth the money.
