I recommend this mattress for stomach and back sleepers and the occasional side sleeper. This mattress will sleep relatively cool for a mattress with foam on the top layer because the foam is a bit more breathable and there is a spring system underneath. However, I found that the foam doesn’t conform quite as much as a denser foam mattress would which is why side sleepers may not like it as much.
- Sleep Sherpa
LUCID’s hybrid bamboo mattress is made with five layers of support, one of which contains 6.5 inches of wrapped coils. Other notable layers in this mattress include the aloe vera transition foam and the 2” top memory foam layer that is infused with bamboo charcoal. The overall feel is on the softer side, which is ideal for side sleepers.

An Overview On King Hybrid Mattresses

Since memory foam and innerspring coil mattresses both have their own benefits and drawbacks, deciding which type to buy can be difficult. Memory foam is typically made primarily of viscoelastic (slow-moving and pliable) polyurethane, allowing the material to contour to the shape of your body and provide support and pressure relief. Invented in Germany in the 1870s, the innerspring remains one of the most well-known types of mattresses on the market. Encased coils and springs make up the foundation of an innerspring, giving the mattress its signature bouncy qualities, while an upholstered top layer provides comfort.

Purchasing a hybrid — a combination of the two mattress types — can give you the best of both worlds and alleviate the drawbacks of both variations. For example, memory foam, which is designed to snuggle the shape of your body, can cause many users to overheat in bed. Adding an innerspring base to a memory foam mattress facilitates airflow to keep sleepers cool. Meanwhile, memory foam relieves pressure build-up in innerspring mattresses, which are prone to bottoming out after a few years of usage, causing the bed to be less supportive. Memory foam models also lack the bounce of innerspring mattresses, so purchasing a hybrid will also give you those springy benefits.

King hybrid mattresses are the size of typical king beds, 80 inches tall and 76 inches wide, and fit most king bed frames. Some products come with a foldable bed frame, while others offer box springs for purchase separately. They also vary in softness (plush to firm), thickness (8 to 14 inches) and multi-layered memory foam construction. There are also hypoallergenic iterations that are resistant to mold, mildew and dust mites and perks available like cooling gel- or aloe vera-infused foam.

The King Hybrid Mattress Buying Guide

  • Many hybrid king mattresses arrive at your home vacuumed sealed in a compact box. Before unpacking your mattresses, take the box to the room you plan to use it in to avoid having to move it around. Once you remove the plastic covering, the mattress will expand slowly and may take up to 48 hours to reach its full-size shape.
  • Don’t put linens on your hybrid mattress before it has expanded to its full-size shape after unpacking.
  • Hybrid king mattresses can weigh up to 180 pounds so plan accordingly when it comes to moving the product.
  • If you tend to get warm when you sleep, consider purchasing a hybrid king mattress with cooling foam technology.
  • To clean your mattress, use a handheld vacuum or a larger vacuum with a brush handle to remove the debris from the top. Then, gently clean any stains with a mixture of one part gentle laundry detergent and two parts warm water; do not soak the mattress. Let it dry completely before putting your sheets back on.
