Types of Mattresses

Innerspring


Innerspring mattresses are the most popular kind of bedding. They are made with a steel coil innerspring support system with various foams and fibers on top to provide comfort at the surface. Heavier-gauge coils provide a stiffer suspension, and lighter-gauge coils feel springier.


The number of coils in a mattress varies from manufacturer to manufacturer; but the coil count is not necessarily as important as the construction. When purchasing innerspring mattresses you want to evaluate the type of springs, their gauge (thickness), and other components such as padding and stitching.

Memory Foam


A memory foam mattress features an all-foam support that works to balance proper support with pressure-relieving comfort. The top layers of the mattress include memory foam, as well as other comfort foams and fibers.


Memory foam has been a favorite for customers who suffer from pain. Traditional memory foam softens when you lie on it and soon molds to your body. Once you get up, it springs back to its original shape.

Hybrid (Innerspring + Foam)


Hybrid mattresses are a combination of innerspring coils and foam, and may also have other comfort layers on top. These mattresses can usually be used on both flat/standard bases or on adjustable foundations and they also come in a variety of comfort levels: soft, medium and firm.

 

The innerspring coil construction in hybrid mattresses will vary between manufacturers, however most are constructed to provide a step up in firmness when compared to mattresses made of only memory foam. This coil system allows the mattress to retain the bounciness that some people prefer on traditional innerspring mattresses, while the layers of memory foam create an enveloping level of comfort. A coil system also gives hybrid mattresses a traditional mattress shape, instead of the straight lines and lower profiles found on most memory foam mattresses.

 

The foam in hybrid mattresses can come in a variety of forms, like memory foam or cooling gel foam.
