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 Mattress?Let’s take a look under the covers at the components of these hybrid beds and what makes them unique:
- Pillow top: Available on a small number of hybrids, the 1-to-2-inch pillow top is sewn on top of the comfort layer to provide additional cushioning.
- Comfort layer: This is the layer that you rest on, made of cushioned components like memory foam, latex, and cool-inducing gel. This is typically 3 to 4 inches of body-hugging material.
- Support core: The support core forms the bulk of the mattress height at 7 to 8 inches. Pocket-wrapped coils and springs provide spinal support.
- Base layer: Usually made of foam, this 1-inch layer at the base provides padding, sturdiness, and stability.
The Transition Hybrid MattressThe Original 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.
