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. The hybrid mattress can have both the advantages and disadvantages of each bed, while still retaining the best qualities of each.
For those of you who prefer a more visual experience, here is a video review from Corey Bryan, Becca Fair, and Loren Bullock’s YouTube channel Mattress Nerd. You can still read our article below to get a complete overview of Dreamcloud. It also compares it with some other competitors.
What Makes a Hybrid Mattress Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
Most hybrid mattresses are composed of a few components. These components are what make a hybrid mattress special. These are:
- Pillow Top: This is a layer that can be added to a variety of hybrids, but it is usually optional. This layer is usually 1-inch in height and is sewn onto the comfort layer to add 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. This is often made with cushioned components to ensure comfort.
Think: memory foam, latex, and cool-inducing gel. This gives the comfort it needs. 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 layer provides support, padding, stability, and strength to the overall mattress shape.
Benefits of Hybrid Mattresses
If they don’t have unique properties, it would not be logical to combine them into one bed. These are just a few of the many benefits hybrid beds offer.
- 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. No matter the make – whether it is memory foam, latex, or cooling gel, – the hybrid bed’s comfort layer will be there to cater to your body’s needs especially in your tiring days.
These foam layers can be supportive for even heavier people (a common problem with foam-only mattresses).
This comfort can even be amplified if you select the perfect bed type for you. This includes stuff like firmness and bed performance. You might find your perfect bed, and you could soon be sleeping on top of the world.
- 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. These beds work well with hybrid beds.
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. Overall, they are a great combination for those suffering body pain.
- Everybody can find the right bed.
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.
It is true that a bed firmness can affect its overall comfort. Find a guid online to pick out which is perfect for you.
- Hybrid beds are as supportive as they can be.
Hybrids’ inner pockets springs support your body while you sleep in them 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 offer cooler sleep.
They provide support and keep you cool. 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’s only natural that hybrid beds provide cooler and better 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. To keep you cool, there are breathable covers and charcoal bamboo memories foam.
- There is a hybrid bed for your sleeping position.
Just as with the firmness level of hybrid mattresses, there are also a perfect bed for everyone regardless of their sleeping positions.
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 are able to isolate motion.
Contrary to popular belief, most hybrid mattresses do not have the same “spring structure” as traditional sprung mattresses. Traditional sprung mattress are often than in an open coil manner, while the hybrid mattress uses pocket springs to support individual in.
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.
However, hybrid mattresses are different. Because the pocket springs are distributed in a way that makes them distinct, hybrid mattresses are different. The pressure on one side of the bed will not affect the other.
The hybrid mattress is ideal for couples with different sleeping patterns. 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
Even for beds that measure in the same dimensions, a hybrid bed will still have more “usable” space than regular foam mattresses. This is due to what they call “edge support”.
Edge support is a bed’s characteristic on how solid or how well a bed’s edges hold. Beds with not so good edge support usually fold when these edges are sit upon. It is also true in the reverse.
Foam encapsulation, which is a firmer foam encasement, is used to create edge support. This foam encapsulation reinforces the outer edge of the bed and provides more sleeping space.
- Hybrid beds provide a more peaceful and comfortable sleep.
Good airflow, bigger sleeping space, good motion isolation, all these means one thing: there is less disturbance in your sleep. You will have the most peaceful and peaceful sleep possible when you find the right hybrid bed for your needs.
- Hybrid beds can be delivered and installed more quickly than traditional ones.
The majority of hybrid beds come in a “beds-in-a-box” format. You order one from the internet, it comes in a box, you carry it inside your bedroom, you open the box and 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. One benefit of these vendors is that they usually have sleep trials. Customers can test mattresses for up to 3 days and return it if they are not satisfied.
You can even swap out your mattress for another one. 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. The DreamCloud mattress is a high-quality hybrid mattress that provides superior comfort without requiring you to spend a lot.
The DreamCloud mattress is made up of a cashmere-blend cover, gel-infused memory foam, and individually-wrapped coils. DreamCloud mattresses are medium-firm hybrid mattresses, which provides a great balance of support and comfort for the sleeper.
DreamCloud Mattress Quick Look
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price Range|
|Hybrid||Firm||365 NIghts||And Returns||Lifetime||$899-$1499|
DreamCloud Firmness & Performance
- DreamCloud Firmness
The DreamCloud mattress is firmer that the average mattress when it comes to firmness. 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. The comfort layer is made of the most comfortable memory foam.
Most kind of sleepers will get just the enough firmness they need with the DreamCloud mattress
- DreamCloud on Body Pain
Good mattresses should offer the right amount of support and pressure relief. They should also be capable of providing the right amount pain relief as comfort providers. Sleeping on the DreamCloud mattress feels just like that.
DreamCloud was so effective that my back felt supported while I lay flat on my stomach. The shoulder area too was feeling pretty good and I felt little to no pressure around the area
Despite this, my hips are not as comfortable for me as my shoulder and back. While I feel great, my hips are not as comfortable as my back or 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
DreamCloud is a leader in temperature control. Combining a gel-infused memory foam with breathable cover cools and pulls heat away from the mattress’ upper layer.
This cooling effect is also supported by coils in the bed that provide decent airflow. This is especially important for those who sleep hot. Due to these features, the bed can prevent these people from being 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. Rather, the DreamCloud mattress is temperature neutral.
Or, as Goldilocks would put it: “Just right!”
- DreamCloud Motion Isolation
Motion isolation refers to the bed’s ability not to transmit motion to other parts of the mattress. 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.
It is an inescapable fact that springs are naturally bouncy. This bounciness affects the bed and can be felt a little. However, this motion isn’t noticeable enough to be considered significant.
- DreamClound Sex
Last but not least, we can’t talk about mattress performance without mentioning 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. Couples love hybrid mattresses because they provide both comfort and responsiveness.
In the case of the DreamCloud, it rates above average when it comes to sex. It allows for movement while being comfortable for both the couple. The secret is due to the coils adding 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.
Overall, the DreamCloud is an excellent bed to have sex in.
DreamCloud Prices and Size
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.
Note: The prices in this chart include: cooling pillow, sheet set, and mattress protector.
|Twin||38″ x 75″||14″||62.99 lbs.||$599 (total Value $1,273)|
|Twin XL||38″ x 80″||14″||66.3 lbs.||$799 (total Value $1,473)|

|Cal King||72″ x 64″||14″||107 lbs.||$1,299 (total value $2,098)|
DreamCloud is highly recommended for:
- Back sleepers for the balanced feel of firm support and gentle pressure relief Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
- Couples who want more support would appreciate a pocketed coil section in the bed.
- Couples looking for a bouncier and more “fun” bed to sleep on while also providing the right amount of comfort.
- People are looking for beds that can be used in colder temperatures and with high temperature regulation.
DreamCloud is not recommended:

DreamCloud Mattress versus Nectar Mattress
A Nectar Mattress Overview
If you are looking for the most popular bed-in-a-box mattress brands, almost always Nectar will always pop up. 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 & Performance
- Nectar Hybrid Classic Firmness
At a glance, the Nectar Hybrid Classic’s firmness is at medium firm. If we convert this into a numerical value, the Nectar Hybrid would probably have a 6.5/10 grade. This is the industry standard grade when it comes to medium firm mattresses. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
This is not surprising, considering that the original mattress is one of the most soft memory foam mattresses on the market.
The first two layers are made up of foam that provides the soft comfort that memory foam lovers know so well. When you sink deeper in the mattress, you can feel the firmness put about by the support layer.
Overall, the Nectar Classic Hybrid provides a good balance of comfort and support.
- Nectar Hybrid Classic for Body Pain
In terms of alleviating body pain, the Nectar Hybrid Classic seems to do an excellent job. 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 on Temperature Regulation
When it comes to regulating temperature, the Nectar hybrid classic seems to do well compared to 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. Heat retention is kept low by the gel infusion and breathable covers. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
Then there are the pocketed coils. This layer of pocketed coils are probably the secret for its temperature regulation abilities. The layer permits more airflow than the dense polyfoam that Nectar mattresses are known for.
Overall, hot sleepers would find a lot of comfort with the Nectar Hybrid Classic with its excellent temperature regulation especially compared to most 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.
This is often where hybrid mattresses fail. Especially given how much coiled core tends to permit greater motion transfer. It is not surprising that the Nectar Hybrid Classic achieves 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 on Sex
The Nectar Hybrid Classic also has excellent rating and performs well on areas that refer to sex. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
First of all, it has solid edge support that allows couples the most space they can use as they do the deed. It is also firm enough to provide plenty of traction.
The comfort layer of memory provides pressure relief and helps to ease tension in the hips, shoulders, knees and hips. This is coupled with the highly responsive surface of the mattress, which allows for easy changing of positions
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 Prices and Size
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. The Nectar Hybrid Classic has a price tag that is comparable to all-foam mattresses.
|Twin||38″ x75″||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 64″||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.
- Lighter Side sleepers who will find the bed softer than the usual 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. The mattress might not support their posture and could cause problems in the long-term.
- Flagship Nectar is a hybrid mattress that may appeal to all-foam lovers.
DreamCloud versus Saatva
The Saatva Mattress Overview
Saatva is another company you can usually hear when looking for popular bed-in-a-box brands. They are well-known for their luxury and high-end mattresses. One of their most well known mattresses is the Zenhaven which is an all-latex mattress. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
In the hybrid mattress department, Saatva’s first foray is the aptly named Saatva latex Hybrid Mattress. It is composed of an organic cotton cover, thick layer of Talalay latex, and other high quality materials.
In terms of dimensions, The Saatva Latex Hybrid measures 12 inches thick with a medium feel. You can find it in all sizes and at the right price.
Is the Saatva Latex Mattress something for You? Continue reading.
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 is enough to classify the Saatva Mattress Hybrid in the firm to medium firm classification of 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. So choosing a mattress or bed should not just fall into looking at its firmness.
- 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.
The Saatva mattress is suitable for heavier individuals. The latex comfort layer provides a good cushion for side sleepers and helps alleviate pain in shoulder and hips. The mattress also promotes spine alignment which is plus in my book. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
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 particularly true for side sleepers.
The Saatva Hybrid mattress seems to have a great effect on the back region of the body. Of course, we’ve already talked about how the Saatva handles side sleepers and shoulder relief
That brings us to the hips and to hip pain in general. 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. It will come to no surprise that the mattress will sleep cool. The secret to this comes from the way the mattress is manufactured.
Latex is already naturally cooling. It does not trap body heat to the same extent as foam. However, the Saatva Mattress goes beyond by making the latex comfort layer ventilated with small holes. This allows hair to circulate through your body while you are using the bed.
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. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
- Saatva Mattress on 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. Such is the case of 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. It is a combination the latex material with the pocketed coils that gives it its bounciness
As good as the Saatva latex hybrid mattress is, it would not be good for couples who tend to move a lot in bed. If you sleep with someone who moves a lot, there will be disruption to your sleep.
- Saatva Mattress for Sex
The Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress makes a great bed for sex. The latex build offers bounce and responsiveness . This level of bounce will prevent couples from being stuck in the mattress.
The mattress is also good at allowing movement which gives freedom to the couple in their intimate moments. In terms of traction, the latex conforms a bit to your shape, which allows the couple to maintain one position for longer periods of time. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
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 Prices and Size
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″ x80″||12″||85 lbs.||$1,415|
|Full||54″ x 75″.||12″||100 lbs.||$1,845|
|Queen||60″ x 80″||12″||120 lbs.||$2,045|
|King||76″ x80″||12″||150 lbs.||$2,445|
|Cal King||72″ x 64″||12″||148 lbs.||$2,445|
|Split King||36″ x 80″ (2pcs)||12″||170 lbs.||$2,830|
Saatva Mattress Recommendations
The Saatva Latex Hybrid Is Recommended for:
- People who love organic mattresses and eco-friendly mattresses.
- People who sleep hot need a bed that is able to cool them down. The Saatva’s cooling properties is a good send for these people
- 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 should not be used for:
- Sleepers looking for luxury hybrid mattress at a lower or a value price
- People who want a sinking sensation and a slower-moving mattress
- Side sleepers who are strict and need support while they sleep on their side 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. Purple Mattress is well-known for its Hyper-Elastic Polymer purple grid, which is used in all of their mattresses.
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. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
For the purpose of this article, we will be looking at the Purple Hybrid.
Quick Look at Purple Mattress
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||Free Shipping||Warranty||Price Range|
|Hybrid||Medium firm||100 Nights||Yes||10-years||$2,499 – $4,998|
Purple Mattress Firmness & Performance
- Purple Mattress Firmness
Due to the unique top layer, it is difficult to pinpoint the Purple Hybrid’s exact position on the firmness scale. Some people find it soft, while some place it at a medium firm.
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.
Aside from firmness, this would be a good place to mention how the Purple Mattress feels. Given the curious construction of its top layer, many people will find the top layer pretty interesting.
To describe it objectively, this has a gel-like feel that is also very stretchy and soft. Such a feeling is of course going to be polarizing as some sleepers will prefer the more traditional innerspring or memory foam 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
The Purple Hybrid mattress contours very well to the body of the sleeper, as stated above. The layer that distributes the weight of the sleeper more evenly over the mattress helps to relieve pressure and dissipate body pain.
The Purple Grid can also buckle easily 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.
What makes this pressure relief experience unique is that unlike the memory foam, the mattress gives a “floating” experience instead of being hugged by it.
- Purple Mattress on Temperature Regulation
Purple Hybrid Mattresses have an edge over the rest in controlling temperature and keeping it neutral.
The Purple Hybrid is unique in that it does not trap heat against the body like foam comfort layers. Purple Hybrid allows heat to escape, keeping sleepers cool all night.
The Purple mattress also has a breathable cover which allows significant airflow into the mattress. 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. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
- Purple Mattress on Motion Isolation
Purple Hybrid mattresses have an average level of motion isolation. There is a perfect explanation to these phenomena however.
Purple Grid, which is located in the comfort layer of your mattress, helps to reduce 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. This can make it difficult to get a good night of sleep.
The Purple mattress has a neutral effect in motion isolation. People sharing a bed will feel the motions of others but not as distracting. 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 on Sex
The Purple Hybrd mattress is a great choice for couples who are looking to have sex. This is standard with hybrid mattresses.
Most foam mattress are beneficial to sex as they usually provide gooud bounce. The couple can have a great time while they do their thing. The contouring foam also helps create traction while providing enough comfort for the body in the comfort layer.
Of course, this bouncines is because of the bed’s inner coil. Not only that, but these coils also provide the bed with enough support to create good edge support for bigger 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″ x80″||12″||145 lbs.||$3,599|
|King||76″ x80″||12″||176 lbs.||$3,599|
|Cal King||72″ x 64″||12″||176 lbs.||$3,599|
|Split King||(2) 36″ x80″||12″||91 lbs (2 pcs).||$4,998|

- Purple Hybrid mattresses are great for people who sleep hot.
- Pressure point sufferers are looking for pressure relief beds Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
- 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. Since being established, they have produced a lot of mattress models.
Their flagship model is the aptly named Casper Original, which is an all-foam make. The Casper Original Hybrid, which has a coil core, was also improved. Aside from that, they also have a line of luxury hybrid mattresses which include the Wave Hybrid and the Nova Hybrid.
This review will focus on 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 Quick View
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price range|
|Hybrid||Medium firm||100 Nights||Yes||Limited 10-year warranty||$695 – $1,495|
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. On a scale from 1-10, it scores a 6.5. 1 is the most soft and 10 the most firm.
It is not necessarily a bad thing. Most hybrid beds in competition fall within this range. This bed strikes a great balance between supporting and 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 due to the Casper mattress, which has a great reputation for 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.
For extra support, the zoned memory foam layer is added to the mattress’ midsection. It provides additional support in the area of the sleeper’s midsection. This provides the sleeper with better contouring and support, while also ensuring that the spine aligns.
- Casper Mattress on 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 different. 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.
Then there is a layer of zoned memory foam that countrous without trapping as much heat as most high-density memory foams. The council support layer allows air to circulate freely. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
This hybrid mattress is cool to lay down on.
- Casper Mattress on Motion Isolation
The Casper Hybrid mattress is very motion-isolating. This bed is almost identical to the original foam model. This bed also excels at this task, as it is similar to the original foam model in preventing movement across the bed.
The bed also jas a two-layer comfort system that absorbs which helps prevent movement and vibrations from traveling across the surface of the bed. The top layer of polyfoam has a slight bounce and reduces motion transfer. The memory foam layer 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. For those who are light sleepers who are easily woken up, this mattress’ motion isolation capabilities might be what they are looking for.

The WinkBed mattress is another brand of internet mattress that focuses more on the luxurious end. WinkBed is a mattress brand that prioritizes durability, premium quality, and comfort. WinkBeds customer base comes in all shapes and sizes, from those who suffer from back pain to even heavier sleepers. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
They offer three different mattress models, which include the EcoCloud, the GravityLux, and the WinkBed. One thing that accentuates WinkBed against its competition is their different customization options.
WinkBed customers: If you don’t like the firmness of a WinkBed model, they may have another option.
For this article, we will be focusing on the flagship WinkBed mattress, which is a supportive hybrid mattress with a soft cover

|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price Range|
|Hybrid||Multiple firmness options||120 Nights||Yes||Lifetime Warranty||$1,149 – $2,049|
WinkBed Mattress Firmness and Performance
- WinkBed Mattress Firmness
We can’t talk about the firmness of the WinkBed if we do not acknowledge the fact that the brand offers three different firmness levels. There are three firmness levels: Softer, Luxury Firm (which they most often choose), Firmer, and Plus
That said, all of these mattresses share the same innerspring or pillowtop feel. On a scale from 1-10, each level of firmness would be classified as follows: Softer (4/10), Luxury FIrm (6/10), Firm (7/10), Plus (8/10).
Tha]t said, the firmness will still vary from person to person. There are a lot of factors that determine the firmness of your choice. Good guides should provide information that can help customers make their decisions.
Here are some quick suggestions:
If you are a side sleeper, it is better to choose softer options.
Luxurious firm, if your preference is to sleep on your stomach or in your back.
Firmer if you are a stomach sleeper.
Plus if your weight is more than 300 pounds.
Aside from that, look at your body weight as a combination of your sleeping habits to pinpoint the best mattress firmness for you.
- WinkBed Mattress on Body Pain
The WinkBed can provide pressure relief and body pain relief. It is a hybrid model that has contours that can be used to relieve pressure points.
The first three mattress versions (Softer, Luxury, and Firmer) have a pillow top with a layer of foam to support the body. This cover is designed to help distribute the body’s weight and alleviate pressure.
The PLUS version has a polyfoam layer and latex layer 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.
All firmness options have their cores zoned out. This allows for more targeted support and less risk of the hips of the sleeper sinking in. This is good for keeping the spring aligned.
- WinkBed Mattress on Temperature Regulation
The WinkBed Mattress has the same cool and breathable bed characteristics as other hybrid mattresses. They are ideal for those who sleep hot all night.
In the case of the WinkBed mattress, all versions come with a Tencel cover, a material that pulls heavy away from the sleeper’s body for a cooler night’s sleep. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
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.
Polyfoam is more breathable that memory foam and won’t trap heat. Also, the latex has an open-cell structure which makes air circulation very much possible.
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. The Softest option in particular does excellent in this category.
The Softer, Luxury Firm, and Firmer options have Euro-style pillow tops with multiple layers as polyfoam. These are the secret to the beds great motion isolation features. These features reduce vibrations that travel across the mattress’ surface.
Because the coils move independently, vibrations cannot travel between them. The Softer version absorbs more vibrations than the other firmness, thanks to its soft feel and an additional layer of polyfoam.
The PLUS version has a poly foam comfort layer and latex comfort layers. However, it does not absorb as much motion as the Softer.
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 on Sex
All four versions of the mattress offer benefits for couples when doing the deed. They are however not all the same. The WinkBed Mattress Plus is the most suitable for sex. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
The second foam layer is replaced by a responsive latex layer. This makes movement in changing positions easier.
On the opposite side, the the Softer option has the least benefits when it comes to sex. People sink in deeper, which makes it more difficult to move around. That said, it still is conductive to sex due to the bouncy nature of the WinkBed Mattress.
WinkBed Mattress Prices and Sizes
Surprisingly the WinkBed Mattress is a luxury hybrid model and costs less than average hybrid models. Because it is made from high-quality materials, it offers exceptional value to shoppers.
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.
|Twin||38″ x 75″||13.5″||75 lbs.||$1,149|
|Twin XL||38″ x80″||13.5″||85 lbs.||$1,249|
|Full||53″ x 75″||13.5″||120 lbs.||$1,499|

DreamCloud versus Puffy
A Puffy Overview
Puffy Mattress is a top-rated mattress brand which stands toe to toe with the best of them. They are mostly known for their accommodating feel, price and firmness level. Currently, they produce three mattresses: the Puffy, The Puffy Lux Hybrid, and the Puffy Royal hybrid.
The hybrid mattress features coil-boised support. The focus of this section, which is the Lux Hybrid, represents a good middle ground for shoppers looking for extra features at a more affordable price. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
Six layers make up the Lux Hybrid. They were designed to provide contouring and adaptive support. So we should expect high scores on those parts for this mattress.
Puffy Mattress Quick View
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||No Shipping Charge||Warranty||Price Range|
|Hybrid||Medium firm||101 Nights||Yes||Lifetime||$1,149 – $1,699|
Puffy Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Puffy Mattress Firmness
The Puffy Mattress has a medium firm feel. This can be converted to a 6.5/10 using numerical ratings.
Even though the mattress has springs at the bottom, the comfort layers still feel slow moving. As such, people looking for softer beds might find the firmness of this bed just enough. 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. It has just enough balance of softness and support which alleviate pain on most pressure points found in the body.
- 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.
The memory foam layer is known for its pressure relieving characteristics. They contour the body and cushion the hips and shoulders to help keep the body, especially the spine aligned. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
That said, if the Puffy mattress was all “puff” and cushion, it wouldn’t be a totally good mattress. Good thing this hybrid mattress has just enough support to provide a good balance of comfort and support.
A firmer mattress may be preferred by heavier sleepers, particularly those who weigh more than 230 lbs.
- Puffy Mattress on Temperature Regulation
Since the basis of the Puffy Lux Hybrid mattress was a close-conforming memory foam, it is with no surprise that the bed does not handle temperature well. This is actually the main problem with the Puffy Mattress.
It is actually one of the Hybrid mattresses 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 for 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.
Hence, the Puffy Lux Hybrid is a perfect bed for sensitive sleepers who are looking for a less bouncy hybrid mattress.
- Puffy Mattress for 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. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
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 Prices and Sizes
The Puffy Lux Hybrid sits on the lower to medium priced of mattresses. It is therefore a great option for budget-conscious buyers. It is also available in all six standard mattress sizes.
|Twin||39″ x 75″.||12″||45 lbs.||$1,149|
|Twin XL||39″ x80″||12″||49 lbs.||$1,199|
|Full||54″ x 75″||12″||63 lbs.||$1,299|
|Queen||60″ x80″||12″||75 bs.||$1,499|
|King||76″ x 80″||12″||95 lbs.||$1,699|
|Cal King||72″ x 64″||12″||95 lbs.||$1,699|

DreamCloud versus Tempurpedic
A Tempurpedic Overview
The folks at Tempurpedic are some of the pioneers when it comes to mattress technology. They were created by NASA scientists in 1992. Their TEMPUR foam has a reputation for being able to adapt to body pressure and offer above-average cushioning and contouring.
While they have made a lot of mattress models throughout the years, we will be focusing on the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid which offers a similar conforming feel to the all-foam TEMPUR-Cloud mattress. This mattress has more than 1,000 coils in the support core.
How this affects the overall quality of the mattress. Find out more below.
Tempurpedic Mattress Quick Look
|Material||Firmness||Trial Period||Free Shipping||Warranty||Price Range|
|Hybrid||Medium||90 Nights||Yes||10-years||$1,699 – $3,398|
Tempurpedic Mattress Firmness and Performance
- Firmness of Tempurpedic Mattresses
The TEMPUR-Cloud hybrid mattress comes at a medium firmness. Though some might argue that it is at a medium firm. Truth be told, it really is a subjective feel as firmness will depend on how the person feels it. Bigger persons will find it softer, while smaller person, feel the opposite.
The top layer of the hybrid mattress offers a lot of comfort and support. Tempurpedic uses a high density type of foam as the top layer of its mattress. It doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t support your body. Rather surprisingly, it is able to hold the sleeper’s body up.
The firmness of the mattress provides a comfortable and supportive back sleep experience. It offers excellent contouring and hugs the body snugly for an excellent sleep.
- Tempurpedic Mattress for Body Pain
We mentioned how good this mattress is at contouring to the body evenly. What we didn’t say is that this mattress is also very good at cradling the sleeper especially at high-pressure spots of the hips and shoulders.
These characteristics is what makes the TEMPUR-cloud hybrid excellent in relieving body pain in these parts as well as keeping spinal alignment throughout the bed’s use.
The combination of the pressure-reducing foams and the responsive coils encourages side sleepers with different bodies to have a good posture.
This mattress will provide adequate support and pressure relief for stomach and back sleepers with lighter bodies.
- Temperature Regulation and Tempurpedic Mattress
Now, Tempurpedic is known for its advances in memory foam technology. They are actually a leader in this field. However it seems like this technology has run a wall in terms of temperature control.
This problem finds itself affecting the TEMPUR-cloud Hybrid mattress. This bed is not recommended for those who are sensitive to heat. Memory foam is known for its ability to trap and absorb heat. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
That’s just it. The memory foam’s ability to cradle the body and trap heat makes it great for heat retention.
The only cooling it gets is probably the coils in the support core which promote airflow, they are not enough to combat the heat retention to even just neutralize this hybrid bed’s heat, let alone cool it down.
People who really love the memory foam of TEMPUR pedic will find that they can only have their bedroom air conditioner at maximum so they can sleep cool.
- Tempurpedic Mattress Motion Isolation
Many foam beds are very motion-isolating. This is also true for TEMPUR cloud hybrid bed. It is actually excellent at it.
Two layers of TEMPUR memory foam are incorporated into the bed to absorb all movement. This means that no matter how your partner or bed mate moves in their sleep, it would be next to impossible to feel it.
- Tempurpedic Mattress on Sex
The TEMPUR-cloud hybrid is just decent bed to have sex in. It isn’t too bad, and it isn’t too good.
Although the memory foam may not be responsive and bouncy, the coils within the support layer compensate and give just enough oomph for sexy times.
The bed is also relatively quiet so that there are no annoying squeaky sounds while you have sex. Except, of course, if participants choose to do it.
Prices and sizes of Tempurpedic Mattresses
Tempurpedic mattress customers who have been a regular customer of TEMPUR cloud hybrid mattresses will be pleased to know that it is just as affordable as the regular TEMPUR clouds mattress. It is actually one of the most affordable beds in TEMPUrR’s range. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
This makes the TEMPUR cloud hybrid a moderately-priced hybrid bed.

DreamCloud versus Helix
A Helix Overview
Helix is a direct to consumer mattress company. The company is known for its sleep quiz, which helps customers choose the right mattress based on their answers. These questions usually involve a customer’s weight, sleeping position, and personal preference.
Product wise, Helix has seven main models. These are Helix Sunset and Helix Moonlight, which are the softest models. There is also the Helix Midnight and Helix Dusk, which are medium-sized models. Lastly, there is the Helix Twilight, Helix Dawn, and the Helix Plus which are their firmest models
Each model comes in two types: a Luxe version and a normal version. For better spinal alignment, the Luxe version often includes an optional zoned support for the coil system. It also has a quilted top pillow for a plush feeling. This upgrade increases the warranty to 15 years instead of 10.
This section will focus on the Helix Midnight hybrid model, which is a medium-sized model. We will see how it compares to its competitors and whether it lives up to its hype.

|Hybrid||Medium firm to firm||100 Nights||Yes||10-years||$799 – $2,499|
Helix Mattress Firmness & Performance
- Helix Mattress Firmness
Helix’s Midnight model is one its medium-firmness mattresses. That said, a lof of sleepers find this bed at a medium-firm to medium-soft. This firmness can be subjective, and will depend on the individual’s weight and body type.
The model’s hybrid construction gives it a pleasant, bouncy feel. As such it is easy to move and roll around on. This bed is a great combination of comfort and support. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
- 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.
The optional Luxe version is for those who don’t have enough pressure relief. It has more support and pressure relief in the back.
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 on Temperature Regulation
The Helix Midnight mattress is temperature neutral in terms of temperature regulation.
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. The coil cores are great at keeping airflow consistent.
The mattress’ heat retention is therefore neutralized and maintained at a balanced state. Without this core coil layer, the Helix Midnight would probably be another mattress that would sleep pretty hot.
- Helix Mattress on 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. Light sleepers can be disturbed easily. 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.
That said, the Helix Midnight does not really have a strong enough edge support, that means couples will not be able to use the whole surface of the bed to have their fun. However, this does not mean they will not enjoy having sex on the mattress. Birch By Helix Vs Dreamcloud Premier
