A hybrid mattress blends a main element from traditional mattresses (coil springs) with layers of memory foam.
It means something that’s made by combining two different elements. Here, those two elements are traditional coils and memory foam.
We’d like to think they’re beyond good, and according to the ratings on our website, sleepers tend to agree. We think that hybrid technology provides a perfect sleep experience.
Hybrid or not, the general recommended lifespan of a mattress is 10 years. That’s a solid general guideline, but your mattress’ lifespan may vary based on amount of use as well as how many people (and pets) are in the bed. The good thing about an Allswell mattress is that we offer a 10-year limited warranty*, so you can live happily with your mattress — and it can have a happy life, too.
No, a hybrid mattress doesn’t need to have a box spring, but many people find that the springs and slats in a box spring serve to make their hybrid mattress even more comfortable. A box spring also raises the bed’s overall height so jumping in doesn’t feel like diving into a pool.
We’d say very! Since you don’t have to choose between a traditional coil mattress and a full memory foam mattress, you automatically get the benefits of both. Obviously, no mattress can satisfy 100% of people, but because hybrid mattresses blend the familiar comfort of traditional coil mattresses with the support of memory foam, we haven’t seen many disappointed customers. (For proof, see our reviews.)
It depends on the company, the range is wide! After many iterations, we finally nailed what we think is the perfect recipe for the ideal medium-firm feel.
We know the concept of a vacuum-sealed, flat-packed mattress sounds a little odd, especially if you’ve been used to a traditional mattress. But for the shipping ease alone, the box situation is a game-changer: Once you take your mattress out of the box, your first instinct might be to call customer support because you only got ¼ of a mattress. But as soon as you break the vacuum seal and wait just a few minutes, you’ll see the mattress expand to full size all on its own. (It’s a rather magical experience, actually…)
