Among the different kinds of mattresses there is one that carries both the responsiveness and bounce of an innerspring mattress and the soft and comfortable feeling of a memory foam mattress. It is what we call the hybrid mattress.
A hybrid mattress is a multi-layer bed that combines memory foam, latex, or gel along with an innerspring system. This allows the hybrid mattress to have the best of both those beds while also mitigating both the disadvantages of both.
If you prefer a visual experience, this video review is from Corey Bryan, Becca Fair and Loren Bullock of Mattress Nerd’s YouTube channel. To get a comprehensive overview of Dreamcloud, you may still want to check out our article below, which compares it to some competitors.
What makes a hybrid mattress? Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
Most hybrid mattresses are composed of a few components. These components are what make a hybrid mattress special. These are:
- Pillow Top: This layer is mostly optional and available only on a few hybrids. Usually, this measures about 1-to-inches and is sewn on top of the comfort layer to provide additional cushioning.
- Comfort Layer: This could be considered as the bed’s main layer. This is the area where your body rests when you use the bed. To ensure comfort, this is usually made of cushioned components.
Think: memory foam, latex, and cool-inducing gel. This provides the body with the comfort it requires. The typical size is around 3 to 4 inches of body-hugging material.
- Support Core: The support core is usually what holds the height of the mattress which usually stands at about 7 to 8 inches. It is also the location of most pocket-wrapped coils or springs that provide spinal support.
In the end, this support core is where the foam and spring meet to make the hybrid mattress possible.
- Base layer: This layer is typically made of foam. This provides padding, support, added stability and sturdiness to the overall shape of the mattress.
Hybrid Mattresses: The Benefits
Of course, there would be no reason at all to fuse these components into one single bed if they do not provide unique properties to warrant their combination. These are some of the benefits that hybrid beds provide.
- They are very comfortable.
No matter what they are made up of, the hybrid mattress will never fail to provide a comfortable experience for you. The comfort layer of the hybrid mattress will provide support for your body, no matter what make it may be, whether it’s memory foam, latex or cooling gel.
These foam layers can be supportive for even heavier people (a common problem with foam-only mattresses).
You can make this even more comfortable by choosing the right bed type. You need to consider things like the firmness of your bed and its performance. Find your bed and you might be sleeping on cloud nine before long
- They are great for aches and pains.
One of the main factors that you should look into when buying or selecting a new bed is how it affects aches and pain. Hybrid beds are the kind of beds that perform well in these parts.
Hybrid mattress can provide both pressure relief as well as comfort all in just one bed because of what both the comfort layer and the inner springs give. They are great for people with body pain.
- There is a bed that is right for everyone.
You can choose from soft beds for more comfort or a firmer mattress for more support. This is great because not everyone likes the same firmness.
And that is right, a bed’s firmness can add up to a bed’s overall comfort. To find the right bed for you, consult an online guid.
- Hybrid beds are as supportive as they can be.
The inner pocket springs of hybrids support your body as you lie down in it throughout the day. They even bear the load of the body’s heavier parts like the hips, shoulders and even stomachs for stomach sleepers.
- They can provide a coolers sleep.
Not only do they provide support, the inner springs also keeps you cool too. The way the pocket springs are placed and arranged in the support layer of a hybrid bed allows for better airflow than most types of bed can. It is only natural that sleepers are provided with a better and cooler sleep.
While the inner springs are the ones doing the heavy lifting, other components can be used to provide this cooling sensation.
For one, some foam layers are created with cooling-gel material to help in a hybrid bed’s cooling effect. There are also breathable covers and charcoal bamboo memory foam that are good at temperature regulation to keep sleepers cool in their sleep.
- A hybrid bed is available for you to sleep in.
The perfect mattress is for anyone, regardless of how they sleep.
No matter if they prefer to sleep in a variety of positions or to be comfortable in one place, there are excellent beds that will accommodate their needs.
- Hybrid Mattresses isolate motion well.
Contrary to popular belief, most hybrid mattresses do not have the same “spring structure” as traditional sprung mattresses. Hybrid mattresses are made with pocket springs, whereas traditional sprung mattresses are more open-coil.
This is because traditional spring mattresses don’t isolate motion well. Often, there is a “rolling together” occurring. This means that if one side feels pressure or movement, the other side will also feel it.
Hybrid mattresses, however, are very different. The way the pocket springs are distributed allows it that they are separate. The pressure on one side of the bed will not affect the other.
This makes the hybrid mattress perfect for couples who have different sleeping habits. Especially for couples whos one half keeps moving in bed and the other half “sleeps like an angel” without any movement
- You have more sleeping space
Hybrid beds can have more space than regular foam mattresses, even if they are the same size. This is due to what they call “edge support”.
An edge support is the characteristic of a bed that determines how solid or strong a bed’s edges are. Edge support that is not good will cause beds to fold when they are sat upon. It is also true in the reverse.
Edge support is typically created using a firmer foam encasement known as “foam encapsulation”. This foam encapsulation reinforces the outer edge of the bed and provides more sleeping space.
- Hybrid beds provide a more peaceful and comfortable sleep.
You will have a better night’s sleep if you have more airflow and more sleeping space. Once you pickup the best hybrid bed for you, you will get the most peaceful sleep you could ever have (of course, this includes sleeping in a peaceful environment too.
- Hybrid beds are easier to get delivered and install
Most hybrid beds are sold in what we call a “bed-in-a-box” model. It is easy to order one online. Once it arrives in the mail, you can take it into your bedroom and then open the box to roll it out.
While some beds may need to be expanded, it is usually not necessary.
- They can be tested before they are kept forever.
Online or internet-based mattress sellers sell most hybrid mattresses. These vendors often offer sleep trials. Customers can test mattresses for up to 3 days and return it if they are not satisfied.
Some even allow a swap for a different mattress. This is a great option for anyone who is shopping for a mattress, especially as mattress shopping can be quite time-consuming and expensive.
A DreamCloud Overview
The DreamCloud mattress is a luxurious mattress at a great price. This high-quality hybrid mattress is unlike most other hybrid mattresses as it provides the best comfort you can get without trading in an arm or a leg.
The DreamCloud mattress is composed of a cashmere-blend covering, gel-infused memory foam and individually wrapped coils. Most DreamCloud mattresses have medium-firm hybrid mattresses which allows for a nice balance of comfort, support, and bounce for sleepers.

|Hybrid||Firm||365 NIGHTS||And Returns||Lifetime||$899-$1499|
DreamCloud Firmness and Performance
- DreamCloud Firmness
When talking about firmness, the DreamCloud mattress is firmer than the average mattress. This firmness will vary depending on the individual who uses the bed.
Pocketed springs on the support layer provide the ideal firmness for most sleepers. This is balanced by comfort layer made from the comfiest memory foam.
Most kind of sleepers will get just the enough firmness they need with the DreamCloud mattress
- Body Pain: DreamCloud
Good mattresses should offer the right amount of support and pressure relief. As providers of comfort, they should be able to provide the right amount of pain relief. Sleeping on the DreamCloud mattress feels just like that.
From my experience with DreamCloud, it was effective enough that I felt my back being supported properly while lying flat on my back. My shoulder area felt great and I felt very little pressure.
Despite this, my hips are not as comfortable for me as my shoulder and back. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel wonderful, but the feeling of comfort I got form the hip area is not as much as that on the back and shoulder. It felt too firm for me to be honest.
Overall, the DreamCloud Hybrid mattress does a great job of relieving pain and pressure on different parts of the body while you sleep.
- DreamCloud Temperature Regulation
When it comes to temperature control, DreamCloud is among the best in the selection. The combination of a gel-infused memory foam and breathable cover cools the upper layer of the mattress and helps pull the heat away from the sleeper.
The coils that support this cooling effect in the bed provide adequate airflow. This is especially important for those who sleep hot. These features can help prevent them from becoming too uncomfortable.
All of this cooling is offset by the memory foam’s natural heating properties. The DreamCloud Mattress is not a warm or cold mattress. The DreamCloud mattress is actually temperature neutral.
Or as Goldilocks would say: This bed feels “Just right!”
- DreamCloud Motion Isolation
Motion isolation is the bed’s ability to isolate motion to different parts of the bed. This is a feature that most hybrid mattresses excel at. This is because hybrid beds are so well-constructed.
In the case of the DreamCloud mattress, the quilted cover and layers of memory foam can absorb a reasonable amount of motion as people are moving on it. These beds are ideal for those who are constantly moving or have partners who are too mobile when they sleep.
Despite this, the mattress’ motion isolation is not perfect. Although the coiled springs are placed in a way that allows for better airflow, they still suffer from the same problems as innerspring mattresses.
Spring are naturally buoyant. This bounciness affects the bed and can be felt a little. That said, most of this motion is not noticeable enough to be deemed significant.
- DreamClound on Sex
Lastly, we cannot talk about a mattress performance without looking at its ability to support intimate times.
More often than not, mattresses that are good for sex are those that provide both responsiveness as well as comfort. A lot of hybrid mattresses are often preferred by couples as they usually provide both of these needs.
In the case of the DreamCloud, it rates above average when it comes to sex. It has the ability to facilitate movement, while still being comfortable for the couple. It is thanks to the coils that add bounce to the mattress. It is easy to move in because of this.
The coils increase airflow throughout the mattress, which helps to dissipate heat. The whole mattress is quiet, even though the coils can be prone to creaking and squeaking.
The DreamCloud is a great bed for sex.
DreamCloud Size and Prices
As stated at the beginning, the DreamCloud mattress is a luxury hybrid mattress at a value price. Thus, it is no surprise that it cost lower than most of the competition. However, this lower price does not mean that it is low quality. It is actually comparable or better than most mattresses on the market.
Notice: Prices shown in the chart include cooling pillow, sheet set and mattress protector.
|Twin||38″ x 75″||14″||62.99 lbs.||$599 (total Value $1,273)|

DreamCloud is highly recommended for:

- Couples who would love for more support if the bed’s pocketed coil section.
- Couples who want a more fun bed for their partner, but still provide the necessary comfort.
- Individuals looking for beds that sleep pretty cold and have great temperature regulations.
DreamCloud is not recommended:
- Side Sleepers who might find the DreamCloud firmer than what they want
- For those who are strict stomach sleepers, a firmer option is needed to maintain their body’s alignment and elevation.
- Memory foam lovers who desire more of the slow-sinking feel provided by foam beds.
DreamCloud Mattress versus Nectar Mattress
A Nectar Mattress Overview
Nectar is the most well-known brand of bed-in-a box mattresses. The Nectar brand of mattresses are usually known for their all foam beds. They recently introduced a hybrid mattress with the Nectar Hybrid Mattress, which is their basic bed.
The first hybrid mattress they have created features the Nectar Classic Mattress, along with additional coils that add great quality to the already outstanding mattress. We will be comparing this to the competition.
Nectar Mattress Quick Look
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price range|
|Hybrid||Medium Firm||365 NIGHTS||Except HI, AK||Lifetime||$799 – $1738|
Nectar Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Nectar Hybrid Classic Firmness
The Nectar Hybrid Classic’s firmness can be seen at a glance. This would give the Nectar Hybrid a grade of 6.5/10 if we converted it into numbers. This is the industry standard grade when it comes to medium firm mattresses. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
Of course this grade comes at no surprise especially since the original mattress is among the softest memory foam mattresses available in the market.
The first two layers are made up of foam that provides the soft comfort that memory foam lovers know so well. The support layer provides firmness by allowing you to sink deeper into the mattress.
The Nectar Classic Hybrid is a great choice for those who want to have both comfort and support.
- Nectar Hybrid Classic on Body Pain
The Nectar Hybrid Classic does a great job in relieving body pain. Its softness allows for little pressure to be felt in the hips, back, shoulder, and neck, especially for back sleepers.
However, the same may not bode well for stomach and side sleepers. Although it’s not serious, the bed seems to be unable to support the hip pressure when lying sideways. This could be a problem in the long-term.
Strictly side and back sleepers might do well to look at firmer mattress instead of this one.
- Nectar Hybrid Classic: Temperature Regulation
The Nectar classic Nectar hybrid mattress seems to be able to regulate temperature better than all-foam mattresses.
For this Nectar model in particular, heat retention is really not an issue because the memory foam layers aren’t as thick or body-confirming as usual. The added gel infusion as well as the breathable covers also do a lot of overtime work to keep heat retention low. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
Then there are the pocketed coils. The secret to its temperature regulation capabilities is the layer of pocketed coils. The layer permits more airflow than the dense polyfoam that Nectar mattresses are known for.
Hot sleepers will find the Nectar Hybrid Classic to be a great choice with its exceptional temperature regulation, especially when compared with other hybrid and all-foam models.
- Nectar Hybrid Classic – Motion Isolation
For people who share a bed with others (i.e. significant others or family members), it is important for a bed to have good motion isolation in order to have a peaceful and comfortable sleep.
Oftentimes, hybrid mattresses don’t do so well in this department. Especially given how much coiled core tends to permit greater motion transfer. So it comes as a surprise that the Nectar Hybrid Classic has above average motion isolation.
The memory foam and polyfoam layers seem to do a lot of heavy lifting here. The dense nature of the layers absorbs excess movement from springs and stops them from reaching the opposite side. These pocketed coils also move independently of one another.
- Nectar Hybrid Classic for Sex
The Nectar Hybrid Classic also has excellent rating and performs well on areas that refer to sex. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
It has solid edges that support couples so they have as much space as possible while they do the deed. It’s also strong enough to give you plenty of traction.
The comfort layer of memory provides pressure relief and helps to ease tension in the hips, shoulders, knees and hips. The mattress’s responsive surface allows for quick and easy positioning changes.
Lastly, the Hybrid Classic is also a relatively quiet bed. Couple that with excellent temperature regulation, and you got a bed that is perfect for making love.
Nectar Mattress Sizes and Prices
The Nectar Classic Hybrid’s price is competitive with other hybrids on the market. Because of the way hybrids are made, they tend to be more expensive than all foam mattresses. As such, The Nectar Hybrid Classic is up to there in terms of price point.
|Twin||38″ x 75″||12″||67 lbs.||$799|
|Twin XL||38″ x 80″||12″||70 lbs.||$869|
|Full||54″ x 75″||12″||90 lbs.||$1099|
|Queen||60″ x 80″||12″||105 lbs.||$1199|
|King||76″ x 80″||12″||128 lbs.||$1,449|
|Cal King||72″ x 84″||12″||127 lbs.||$1,449|
|Split King||38″ x80″||12″||70 lbs.||$1,738|
Nectar mattress Recommendations
The Nectar Classic Hybrid is Recommended For:
- Back sleepers will get a lot of mileage with the Nectar Classic Hybrid especially with a lot of features that fit these kinds of sleepers.
- Couples who appreciate a solid edge support, cooling components as well as excellent motion isolation properties.
- For those who sleep on their sides, the bed will be more comfortable than traditional hybrid mattresses.
The Nectar Classic Hybrid is Not Recommended For:
- Strict stomach sleepers, especially those on the heavier side will find the Nectar Hybrid Mattress too soft. This mattress will not be able to hold their posture well and might cause some issues in the long run.
- Flagship Nectar is a hybrid mattress that may appeal to all-foam lovers.
DreamCloud versus Saatva
The Saatva Mattress Overview
Saatva is another name you will often hear when searching for bed-in-a box brands. They are well-known for their luxury and high-end mattresses. The Zenhaven, an all-latex mattress, is one of their most popular mattresses. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
Saatva’s first venture in hybrid mattress is the Saatva latex Hybrid Mattress. It is composed of an organic cotton cover, thick layer of Talalay latex, and other high quality materials.
The Saatva Latex Hybrid is 12 inches thick and has a medium feel. It comes in all mattress sizes at the appropriate prices.
Are you interested in the Saatva Latex Mattress? Read on.
Saatva Mattress Quick View
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price Range|
|Latex hybrid||Medium Firm||365 NIghts||White Glove Delivery||Lifetime||$1,245 – $2,830|
Saatva Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Saatva Mattress Firmness
The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a firm selection on the market in terms of firmness. If we represent that firmness in a scale po to 10, the Saatva Latex Hybrid will go at about 7.5 out of 10.
This measurement allows us to classify the Saatva Mattress Hybrid as a medium-firm mattress. People with this body types nominally, have a hard time looking for a mattress that can support their back properly.
That said, always remember that at the end of the day, firmness can be subjective. What is firm for someone else might not be so for you. You should consider more than just the firmness of a mattress or bed when choosing one.
- Saatva Mattress on Body Pain
How a mattress handles pressure around your body can give you an indication of how well it relieves pain when you are sleeping on it. In the case of the Saatva Hybrid Mattress, it seems to offer very good pressure relief for people between 130 to 230 pounds.
For heavier people, the Saatva mattress provides enough support. The latex comfort layer offers a cushioning effect for side sleepers, and can help alleviate pain in the hips and shoulders. I think the mattress promotes spinal alignment, which is a plus. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
However, this does not apply to people of different weights. Saatva Latex Hybrid may be too stiff for some people who are lighter. This is especially true when we are talking about the side sleepers in particular.
In terms of the body’s region, IIt seems that the Saatva Hybrid mattress does wonders in providing a comfortable and supportive feel at the back area. Of course, we’ve already talked about how the Saatva handles side sleepers and shoulder relief
This brings us to the hips, and hip pain generally. Saatva Mattress can support the hip area, and align the hips and shoulders for stomach and back sleepers. However, side sleepers who have hip pain might need a firmer bed with extra support.
- Saatva Mattress on Temperature Regulation
The Saatva Hybrid Mattress is natural at regulating temperature. The mattress is cool and comfortable. This is due to the way that the mattress was made.
Latex is already a naturally cooling material. It does not trap body heat to the same extent as foam. The Saatva Mattress does more than that by ventilating the latex comfort layer with tiny holes. This allows for hair to flow through the bed while you sleep.
Then the organic cotton cover and wool fire barrier are also manufactured with breathability in mind. This is combined with the coil system to create a bed that can maintain a cool core temperature. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
- Saatva Mattress Motion Isolation
Motion isolation is a common problem for hybrid mattresses. Most hybrid mattresses will either do an adequate job or not perform as well. This is the case with the Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress.
Looking at the Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress, it has a really high motion transfer. This is because of its make. The bounciness is a combination of the latex material and the pocketed coils
The Saatva latex hybrid mattress would not work well for couples who move around a lot. There will be constant disturbance in your sleep especially if you are sleeping with someone who tends to move around a lot.
- Saatva Mattress for Sex
When it comes to sex, the Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress is an excellent bed to do it in. The latex construction offers bounce and responsiveness. Couples will not feel trapped in the mattress due to this level of bounce.
The mattress allows for movement, which is a great benefit to the couple during intimate moments. The latex is a little flexible and conforms to your body, which gives you the ability to stay in one place for longer periods. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
The only negative thing about the Saatva when it comes to sex is the coils tend to be louad, which makes it a bit distracting.
Saatva Mattress Sizes and Prices
While at first glance, the Saatva Latex Hybrid price point might seem more expensive than the previously mentioned mattress. However, this actually is on par with the average prices of similarly made hybrid mattresses.
Latex beds are not really cheap, and this is the crux of Saatva’s higher price.
|Twin||38″ x75″||12″||70 lbs.||$1,245|
|Twin XL||38″ x 80″||12″||85 lbs.||$1,415|
|Full||54″ x 75″||12″||100 lbs.||$1,845|
|Queen||60″ x80″||12″||120 lbs.||$2,045|

|Split King||(2) 36″ x80″||12″||170 lbs.||$2,830|
Saatva Mattress Recommendations
The Saatva Latex Hybrid Is Recommended for:
- People who love organic mattresses and eco-friendly mattresses.
- Hot sleepers looking for a bed that can greatly cool them down. These people will appreciate the Saatva’s cooling abilities.
- These are stomach sleepers who seek a bed that offers more support.
- People who sleep on a responsive mattress prefer something that conforms to their bodies but doesn’t sink too much.
- Shoppers who want a mattress that is assembled by others, but not by them.
The Saatva Latex Hybrid is NOT Recommended For:.
- Luxury hybrid mattress buyers who are looking for a low- or high-quality mattress
- People looking for the sinking feeling and an overall slower-moving mattress
- Strict side sleepers who need all the support they can get while sleeping on their sides all night
DreamCloud versus Purple
A Purple Mattress Overview
Another Internet mattress company that is well known and recognizable by almost everybody is Purple Mattress. They are famous for their iconic Hyper-Elastic Polymer purple grid which is applied in all their mattress products.
They now have the Purple Hybrid Premier and Purple Hybrid Hybrid hybrid mattresses. They create a hybrid comfort experience by using their Purple grid and adding layers of springy pocketsed coils. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
We will be focusing on the Purple Hybrid for the purposes of this article.
Purple Mattress Quick Look
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||Free Shipping||Warranty||Price range|
|Hybrid||Medium firm||100 Nights||Yes||10-years||$2,499 – $4,998|
Purple Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Purple Mattress Firmness
It is difficult to properly pinpoint the Purple Hybrid’s position on the firmness scale due to its unique signature top layer. It can be described as soft or medium firm by some people.
It might be anywhere from 6.5 to 7. If you put it on a scale 1-10, with 1 being the most softest, It is an excellent choice regardless of your sleeping style or body type.
This section should not only be about firmness but also how the Purple Mattress feels. Given the curious construction of its top layer, many people will find the top layer pretty interesting.
It has a gel-like feeling that is very stretchy and soft. This feeling can be very polarizing, as some people will prefer memory foam or innerspring beds.
In my experience, it takes a few nights of sleeping in the mattress before getting used to the top layer but it does grow on you. The bed will feel compressed and mold to your body.
It might sound unpleasant, but it isn’t. In fact, it is very comfortable and it feels like you are floating and has a lot of pressure-relieving feeling.
- Purple Mattress on Body Pain
As stated above, the Purple Hybrid mattress will contour very well to a sleeper’s body. This feature actually helps in relieving pressure and dissipating body pain due to the layer distributing the sleeper’s weight more evenly across the mattress.
It is also very easy for the Purple Grid to buckle when pressure is applied. The firm feel then helps the mattress remain supportive. This is good news for side sleepers as this allows their hips and shoulders to sink in while still supporting and promoting spinal alignment.
This pressure relief experience is unique because, unlike memory foam, the mattress feels “floating” instead of being hugged.
- Purple Mattress on Temperature Regulation
Controlling temperature and keeping it neutral is among Purple Hybrid Mattresses’ edge against the competition.
The Purple Hybrid is unique in that it does not trap heat against the body like foam comfort layers. Instead, Purple hybrid allows heat to escape and keep sleepers cool throughout the night.
Purple mattresses also have a breathable cover that allows for significant airflow. This allows heat to dissipate away from the sleeper’s body through the open air channels.
The coil core also bring in additional air which cools the body and pulls heat farther away from the sleeper. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
- Purple Mattress for Motion Isolation
The Purple Hybrid mattress has an overall average motion isolation. There is a perfect explanation to these phenomena however.
The proprietary Purple Grid found in the comfort layer of the mattress does a lot to isolate motion. It is specifically designed to prevent motion from spreading across the mattress.
This is actually neutralized by the spring’s bounciness. The coils can actually be felt up to the top of the mattress because they are so buoyant. Which can be pretty distracting from a good night’s sleep.
As such, the Purple mattress really has a neutral effect on motion isolation. For people sharing the bed with others, they will feel the motion of their bed mates but it won’t be as 3distracting. But, it is possible to feel large movements like getting in and out of bed.
Overall, for people who are easily disturbed by sudden movement and want peaceful sleep, I could not say I recommend it to those people
- Purple Mattress for Sex
The Purple Hybrd mattress is a great choice for couples who are looking to have sex. This is standard with hybrid mattresses.
Many foam mattresses are good for sex because they provide good bounce. The couple can have a great time while they do their thing. The contouring foam helps to create traction and provides enough comfort for the body within the comfort layer.
This is due to the inner coil of the bed. These coils provide enough support to the bed’s edges, allowing for greater usable space.
Purple Mattress Prices and Sizes
The Purple Hybrid mattress has a competitive price for a hybrid mattress. This means that ithe mattress will also be on the more expensive side. CUriously, the Purple hybrid does not carry a twin sized bed. The Purple Hybrid’s Twin XL bed is the smallest.
|Twin XL||38″ x 80″||12″||91 lbs.||$2,499|
|Full||54″ x 75″||12″||125 lbs.||$2,699|
|Queen||60″ x 80″||12″||145 lbs.||$3,599|
|King||76″ x80″||12″||176 lbs.||$3,599|

|Split King||(2) 36″ x80″||12″||91 lbs (2 pcs).||$4,998|

- Pressure point sufferers are looking for pressure relief beds Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
- Sleepers are looking for a responsive mattress with a unique and different type of feel.

- Shoppers and sleepers searching for a bed that is affordable but not over $1000.
DreamCloud versus Casper
A Casper Overview
Casper mattress was founded back in 2014. Casper mattress was founded in 2014. They have created many mattress models since their inception.
Their flagship model is the aptly named Casper Original, which is an all-foam make. They also improved this with the Casper Original Hybrid which features a coil core. They also offer luxury hybrid mattresses, including the Wave Hybrid or the Nova Hybrid.
In this review, we will be talking about their Original hybrid. This hybrid is made up of the same three layers of foam form the Casper original, except they replaced the polyfoam core with a coil support layer. This small change in construction is a huge change in the bed’s overall performance.

Casper Mattress Firmness & Performance
- Casper Mattress Firmness
Casper mattresses are easy to recognize as medium-firm mattresses if you lay down on them for a while. It scores a 6.5 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the softest and 10 the firmest.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Most hybrid beds in competition fall within this range. It strikes a good balance between being supportive as well as relieving pressure. This is due to the combination of foams as well as the pocketsed coils that make the bed.
The bed allows just enough softness to alleviate tension at the relevant parts of the shoulder and hips without them having to dip out of alignment from the rest of the body.
This medium firmness also works in the favor of the bed as there are a lot of sleepers who prefer this firmness level.
- Casper Mattress on Body Pain
The Casper Hybrid offers greater pressure relief than other hybrid models. This is thanks to the original Casper mattress which already has a good reputation in relieving pressure.
Just as with the original Casper Mattress, it uses a two-layer comfort system that cradles the sleeper and distributes their weight to relieve pressure points.
Then there is the zoned memory foam layer which reinforces the midsection of the mattress for added support especially in the sleeper’s midsection area. This provides the sleeper with better contouring and support, while also ensuring that the spine aligns.
- Casper Mattress Temperature Regulation
It’s well-known that hybrid mattresses have more airflow than their foam counterparts. This is mostly thanks to the coiled springs in the support layer that adds much needed airflow to “hotter” bed models.
The Casper Hybrid is no exception. It has a perforated polyfoam top layer that conforms to the sleeper’s body while allowing airflow to escape and preventing it from being trapped.
A layer of zoned memory foam is added that counts without trapping heat as high-density memory Foams. The council support layer allows air to circulate freely. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
This hybrid mattress is cool to lay down on.

The Casper Hybrid mattress is very motion-isolating. This bed is almost identical to the original foam model. Since that model was particularly good at preventing movement from reverberating across the bed, this bed is good at it too.
A two-layer comfort system is included in the bed. It absorbs vibrations and movement to prevent them from travelling across the surface. The polyfoam top layer has a slightly bouncy feel while reducing motion transfer, and the memory foam layer also absorbs motion,
Overall, this strong motion isolation does a huge part in helping reduce nighttime disturbances especially with bedmates who tend to move around the mattress. This mattress might be the right choice for light sleepers or those who wake up frequently.
- Casper Mattress for Sex
The Casper Hybrid mattress has a higher conductive rate than many all-foam mattresses. However, compared to other hybrid models, the Casper Hybrid lags behind others in this feature.
Unfortunately, the Casper mattress does not have the bounce and springiness that inner spring and hybrid models offer.

WinkBed Mattress Firmness & Performance
- WinkBed Mattress Firmness
The firmness of WinkBed is not something we can discuss unless we acknowledge that there are three levels to it. These firmness levels include a Softer, Luxury Firm (which is their most popular choices), Firmer and Plus
All of the mattresses have the same innerspring or pillowtop feel. If we put all these firmness levels in a scale of 1 to 10, each firmness level would fall into the following positions: Softer (4/10) Luxury FIrm 6/10) ,Firm (7/10), and Plus (8/10)
Despite this, firmness can still vary from one person to the next. There are many factors that influence the firmness of your decision. Good guides should provide information that can help customers make their decisions.
As a quick recommendations, choose the following firmness option if you are:
If you are a side sleeper, it is better to choose softer options.
Luxury firm, if you prefer sleeping in your back or you are a lightweight stomach sleeper.
Firmer if you are a stomach sleeper.
If your weight exceeds 300 pounds, you will be eligible for an additional fee.
To find the right mattress firmness, consider your body weight and your sleeping habits.
- WinkBed Mattress for Body Pain
In terms of Body Pain and Pressure relief, the WinkBed is like many hybrid models where its contouring can help relieve a sleeper’s pressure points.
For the first three versions of the mattress, (Softer, Luxury Firm, and Firmer) they have a pillow top and a layer of polyfoam to cradle the sleeper. This cover helps redistribute the sleepers body weight and relieves the overall pressure from the body.
The PLUS version is a bit different in that it is composed of a polyfoam and slayer of latex for contouring. They divide the work on pressure relief: The latex distributes the body’s weight over a larger surface area, while the polyfoam cushions pressure points.
Latex can be used to create a feeling of floating in bed, which is a benefit for some sleepers. It also prevents pressure buildup.
Furthermore, al the firmness options have their coil core zoned out. This makes for a more targeted support and reduces the risk of the sleeper’s hips sinking in excessively. This helps to align the spring.
- WinkBed Mattress on Temperature Regulation
The WinkBed Mattress shares the same breathable and cool bed characteristics with other hybrid mattresses. They are ideal for those who sleep hot all night.
All WinkBed mattresses come with a Tencel Cover, which is a thicker material that draws away from the body to provide cooler sleep. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
The first three pillow tops are made of gel-infused polyfoam. This redistributes boddy instead of trapping it. Meanwhile, the PLUS version uses a layer of polyfoam and a layer of latex.
This polyfoam is more breathable than memory foam and will not trap a lot of heat in the sleeper’s body. The latex’s open-cell structure makes it possible for air circulation.
Lastly, the coil core allows for more air circulation which adds more to the cooling mattress.
- WinkBed Mattress on Motion Isolation
Judging the WinkBed in terms of motion isolation is kind of tricky. Different firmness variants of the WinkBed will have different motion isolation values.
That said, all versions have better motion isolation than other hybrid models in the market. This category is particularly well-suited for the Softest option.
The Softer, Luxury Firm, or Firmer options feature Euro-style pillow tops made with multiple layers of polyfoam. These are the key to the bed’s motion isolation properties. These features reduce vibrations that travel across the mattress’ surface.
The coils also move independently which makes it hard for vibrations to travel. That said, the Softer version also absorbs more motion than the other firmness because of its soft feel as well as an added transition layer of polyfoam.
Meanwhile, the PLUS version, which has a poly foam and latex comfort layers do absorb a huge amount of motion, but it is not as absorbent as the Softer version.
The coil cores are also specifically engineered in a way that while it still gives the mattress some bounce, it still restricts the spread of motion. Combine that with the mattress’ comfort system which is substantial enough to minimize all motion in the bed.
- WinkBed Mattress for Sex
Each of the four mattress versions offer advantages for couples. They are however not all the same. Among the four versions however, the WinkBed Mattress PLUS has the best performance as a bed for sex. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
It swaps out the second foam layer with a latex layer that is quite responsive. This allows for easier movement when changing positions.
On the opposite side, the the Softer option has the least benefits when it comes to sex. Individuals sink in more, making it harder to change position. That said, it still is conductive to sex due to the bouncy nature of the WinkBed Mattress.
WinkBed Mattress Sizes and Prices
Surprisingly the WinkBed Mattress is a luxury hybrid model and costs less than average hybrid models. It is an exceptional value for shoppers as it is manufactured from mostly high-quality materials.
The best thing about this mattress is the fact that the three versions of the Softer, Luxury Firm and Firmer versions are all priced the same. Only the PLUS option comes at an extra cost.

Puffy Mattress Firmness & Performance
- Puffy Mattress Firmness
The medium firmness of the Puffy Mattress is moderate. This can be converted to a 6.5/10 using numerical ratings.
The comfort layers feel slow-moving, even though there are springs at its bottom. People looking for soft beds may find this mattress just right. This softness doesn’t even need to trade in the support it really needs.
Puffy Lux is a great choice for side and back sleepers. The body’s pressure points are relieved by the right amount of support and softness.
- Puffy Mattress for Body Pain
In terms of pressure relief, the Puffy Lux Hybrids has thick layers of memory foam and polyfoam that gets the job done.
Memory foam is well-known for its pressure relieving properties. They conform to the body and cushion the shoulders and hips to keep the spine and body aligned. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
That said, if the Puffy mattress was all “puff” and cushion, it wouldn’t be a totally good mattress. This hybrid mattress is just right for providing a balance between comfort and support.
However, heavier sleepers, especially those weighing more than 230 pounds may prefer a firmer mattress.
- Temperature Regulation Puffy Mattress
The Puffy Lux Hybrid mattress’s base was close-conforming memory foam. It is not surprising that the mattress does not manage temperature well. In fact, this is the very weakness of the Puffy Mattress.
In fact, it is one of the few Hybrid mattresses that hot sleepers should avoid.
Memory foam traps heat, and although the Puffy Lux hybrid contains gel infusions to decrease heat retention, they are not sufficient to neutralize the bed’s heat.
- Puffy Mattress on Motion Isolation
Although it is not very good at controlling temperature, the Puffy Lux hybrid does a great job at keeping motion away. Because of the foam in the mattress, motion transfer across the surface is difficult because it’s very hard to feel.
That said, it still transfers some motion given its coil support base, however, the foam still wins over these vibrations and motions.
The Puffy Lux Hybrid mattress is ideal for those who have sensitive skin and want a more comfortable hybrid bed.
- Puffy Mattress on Sex
It isn’t really conducive to having sex on the Puffy Mattress. Some might find it disappointing. Mattresses and beds that are good for sex are usually those with good bounce and response. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
The Puffy Mattress has none of this.
THe Puffy Lux Hybrid is slow to return to its original shape. The mattress can feel stuck to the user, especially when they are trying to change positions or get out of bed.
The mattress’s pocketed coils, just like the airflow issues, are not sufficient to allow for good sex.
Puffy Mattress Sizes and Prices

|Twin||39″ x 75″.||12″||45 lbs.||$1,149|

Each model comes in two types: a Luxe version and a normal version. The Luxe version usually includes an optional zoned lumbar support to the coil system for a better spinal alignment. It also has a quilted top pillow for a plush feeling. This upgrade ups the warranty into 15-years instead of 10.

Helix Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Helix Mattress Firmness
The Helix Midnight model is one of Helix’s medium firmness mattresses. However, many people find the bed to be medium-firm to medium soft. Of course, this firmness is subjective and has to do with the sleeper’s weight and overall body type.
The model’s hybrid construction gives it a pleasant, bouncy feel. It is very easy to roll and move on. Overall, this bed has a good balance between comfort and support. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
- Helix Mattress on Body Pain
The Helix midnight is a great choice for pressure relief and body pain. Its plusher surfaces are what does the heavy lifting when it comes to pressure relief.
For those who do not have enough pressure relief, the optional Luxe version does a better job thanks to the addition that adds more support and pressure relief to the back area.
It strikes a great balance between support and pressure relief. Side sleepers may find it too soft, and might opt for firmer models.
- Helix Mattress Temperature Regulation
In terms of Temperature regulation, the Helix Midnight mattress sleeps at temperature neutral.
The main reason for this is the memory foam material that we all know by now, to sleep hot and retain said heat all throughout the night. With that said, the coil cores do a great job in keeping air flow consistent.
This is why the mattress’ heat retention is neutralized and kept at a balance state. The Helix Midnight without the core coil layer would likely be another hot mattress.
- Helix Mattress Motion Isolation
When it comes to motion isolation, the Helix Midnight does an okay job at it. Sure, it has a memory foam layer that mostly dampens motion and slows down movement from traveling across the bed’s surface.
However, it also has a responsive and bouncy coil layer that facilitates movement. It isn’t too bad that light sleepers who are easily disturbed will have their sleep constantly disrupted. But, large movements can disrupt sleep.
- Helix Mattress for Sex
As for how the Helix Mattress handles sex, it is also pretty decent. It strikes a good balance of being responsive while being soft and comfortable too. Hence, it is not too restrictive, while it is also not too bouncy.
The Helix Midnight doesn’t have enough edge support so couples won’t be able use the entire surface of the bed for their pleasure. It does not mean that they won’t be enjoying having sex on this mattress though. Avocado Green Vs Casper Vs Dreamcloud Vs Saatva For Back Sleepers
