What Is The Difference?

With sleep being pivotal to well-being, choosing a mattress is a big decision. Understanding the difference between memory foam mattresses and hybrid mattresses will help you make the best choice for bedtime so you stay supported and rest comfortably.

Searching for the best mattress?

Finding your ideal mattress takes time and perseverance, though knowing your stuff is a great place to start. There is no greater feeling than diving onto your perfect match, whether that’s a memory foam or a hybrid mattress. Many sleepers searching for the perfect night’s sleep want to know the difference between these two popular mattresses. Let’s take a look.

What is a memory foam mattress?

This type of mattress is made from viscoelastic foam, designed to conform to the shape of your body in response to heat and pressure. The foams, which vary in firmness, provide unique spinal support and naturally contour to most sleeping positions. This makes them very popular in the world of bedtime. One of the potential drawbacks was its tendency to retain heat. Though with advanced technology, many mattresses feature cooling layers to keep sleep breathable while providing all the benefits of memory foam.

Memory foam mattresses can sometimes be more on the firm side which doesn’t suit sleepers who prefer a little cushioning. They also come in a wide variety of fabrics and styles which can determine their comfort and support. While not for everyone they can provide a supportive night’s sleep and promote healthy alignment.

What is a hybrid mattress?

The hybrid mattress is a type of mattress that combines two or more support systems, typically memory foam and pocketed springs, to provide a balance of comfort, support, and pressure relief. Hybrid mattresses are a little newer to the scene, though they are quickly becoming the go-to for the perfect night’s sleep. Hybrid mattresses blend classic pocket springs with supportive memory foam and advanced airflow technology to elevate the sleeping experience. Memory foam allows the mattress to provide unique spinal alignment. At the same time, pocket springs (which vary in count and quality) deliver a slightly softer cushiony feel and reduce motion transfer – ideal for those sleepers with wriggly partners.

When shopping for a hybrid mattress, there are a few things to consider. Materials are key to getting the best quality kip. Natural, breathable fabrics like bamboo are ideal for being thermoregulating, hypoallergenic, and anti-bacterial, keeping bedtime ultra-fresh. Panda’s hybrid bamboo mattress pro is the ultimate portal to breathable sleep with bamboo-infused BioCell Foam™ combined with orthopedically approved OrthoAlign Foam™ and seven zones of premium pocket springs. A smooth bamboo cover seals the mattress in hypoallergenic comfort, which is easy to keep clean and care for. The hybrid bamboo mattress pro is perfect for those who like to have it all, bringing together the best of science and nature to deliver the best night’s sleep (straight to your bedroom).

What is the best mattress for you?

To decide whether a memory foam or hybrid mattress is best for you it’s best to ask yourself a few questions. 

1. What is your sleeping position?

A good mattress will support your sleeping position. Both of these can provide you with healthy support and spinal alignment. However, a hybrid mattress can provide additional cushioning and advanced breathability to improve sleep.

2. How firm do you like your mattress?

A hybrid mattress could be the best option if you like a firm, though not too firm mattress. The unique combination of foams and springs provides healthy support with a slightly more cushiony feel.

3. Does motion transfer bother you?

If you tend to wake in the night from your partner’s movements, a hybrid mattress will be your new best friend. The motion control technology will set you up for smooth, undisturbed nights and much fresher mornings.
