Which is Better for you – Memory Foam or Latex Hybrid Mattress?

Let’s go through the most important aspects when shopping for a mattress, and see if a memory foam or a latex hybrid mattress is the best choice for you.

Comfort

Comfort certainly is the first thing you look for in a mattress, and the feel is quite different with hybrids and memory foam.

This comes down to personal preference. If you’re used to traditional mattresses, but want to make a change towards the modern, then latex hybrid mattresses are great. These mattresses allow you to add a quilted top, without losing the benefits.

It’s a different story with memory foam. Add a comfort layer and you will lose the benefits of memory foam. But, if you’re a person who is looking for a slow-response mattress that provides that sinking-in feeling, go for memory foam.

Airflow

Latex hybrid mattresses are about 28% cooler than their all-foam counterparts. Open cell structure and open coils allow air to freely circulate so heat can escape. On the other hand, airflow is decreased in memory foam mattresses, so there is a chance of you waking up in sweat.

Pressure relief

Micro coils in modern hybrid mattresses are more flexible than ever. They conform to the curves of your body, responding to pressure points, while staying reasonably firm.

With memory foam mattresses, customers often complain about sinking in too deeply, describing the feeling as, “stuck in quicksand”. Another point for the latex hybrid mattress.

Motion transfer

The motion separation when sleeping on a memory foam mattress is unrivaled. You won’t feel the tosses and turns of your partner on memory foam.

However, a latex hybrid mattress is the next best thing. It’s not like you feel the slightest of movements from the other side of the bed. The movements are just a tad more noticeable compared to memory foam.

Life span

Hybrids have proven their durability time and time again. There are even examples of these mattresses lasting for up to 50 years. Incredible. And all of this without compromising the integrity.

Memory foam mattresses do tend to develop the, “canoe effect”, over time, which significantly affects sleeping comfort. And there are far too many variables with memory foam, from the density to the memory foam quality, so determining average life span is tricky.

Back support

Memory foam mattresses perform beautifully when it comes to conforming to the curves of your body. There are no gaps between your body and the mattress. However, they do not keep your back straight, because your body sinks into it.

Hybrid mattresses also conform to your body, but with one big advantage. While you sink into memory foam, a latex hybrid mattress distributes the weight evenly, keeping your spine in alignment. Latex is a more solid material, preventing you from sinking in too deeply.

Price

Latex hybrid mattresses are more expensive of the two, but that shouldn’t be a discriminating factor. First of all, because a high quality mattress is a sound investment in your health and well-being day in and day out for years on end. Secondly, you can find a top-quality hybrid latex mattress in San Diego if you buy directly from a reputed manufacturer and avoid the middlemen.
