1-Helix Midnight

  • Great for those who want a hybrid memory foam mattress
  • Combination sleepers
  • Sleepers with sensitive pressure points

Helix is a direct to consumer mattress supplier whose main goal is to provide sleepers with the most personalized experience possible. They offer over 13 variations of their memory foam hybrid mattresses and want to accommodate all types of sleepers. The most popular mattress in their collection is the Helix Midnight which has a perfect balance of support and pressure relief with its medium firm feel.

The top two lawyers on the Helix Midnight are made of memory foam. The first layer is made of Helix’s patented memory plus foam that was created to hug pressure points, while still being somewhat responsive. The next layer is made of a polyfoam that prevents the body from sinking in too much. The foundation of the mattress is actually made of coil support core. This makes it easier to move by making the foundation sturdier and gives the bed a little bit of bounce.

The Midnight is a medium firm feel (6), and its mix of ease of movement and pressure relief makes it the perfect option for people who like to sleep in different positions. It’s also a great option for combination sleepers who want to transition between positions more easily. It is probably the most versatile on this list and performs well in pretty much all areas including edge support, temperature control, and pressure relief.

The mattress comes with a 10-year warranty and you can try the Midnight Luxe for 100 nights. The warranty covers both manufacturing and material defects.


  • Great for people who like to sleep on their side with the support of memory foam
  • Great value for the money
  • One-year trial

The Nectar is proof that a great mattress doesn’t necessarily have to cost an arm and a leg. For this reason, we ranked the Nectar as the best value mattress on this list.

But what makes the Nectar great is not the price alone. Its performance is also great thanks to the multiple memory foam layers that help relieve pressure points across the whole mattress.

All top 3 layers of the mattress are memory foam. The top 2 layers are one inch thick and have gel in them. The top layer is quilted with a Tencel cover that wicks moisture. The last layer is made of a 3-inch piece of Nectar Hi Core Adaptive memory foam.

Each of these components feel different and work together to provide solid contouring and motion isolation. The support core, which is made of dense polyfoam, also does a great job at preventing excessive sinking.

This is another medium firm mattress (6), and its great contouring capabilities make it a prime choice for people who love to sleep on their side. People who are 130 pounds or more and under 230 pounds will benefit the most from this mattress.

The mattress comes with a full 365-day trial, which is probably one of the longest in the whole industry. It also has a lifetime warranty, which makes it a no-brainer for anyone who wants to get maximum value from their mattress.


  • Top level edge support
  • Multiple firmness options
  • Luxurious mix of contouring and bounce

The WinkBed is the second hybrid on this list and has a coil-on-coil fabrication. This one is the most customizable option on our list. It’s also a luxurious mattress that is very affordable. The WinkBed comes in Firm (7), Medium Firm (6), and Medium Soft (4).

The Euro-influenced pillow top gives the WinkBed an extra touch of sophistication, but it’s the construction that makes it really stand out. The top layer is injected with polyfoam to give additional support. It also helps ease pain and soreness by accommodating the body’s hot spots.

The second layer is made of coils. These are micro-coils that are wrapped individually and they are very responsive and adapt to the body very well.

It’s the combination of big coils, micro coils, and polyfoam that make this mattress so versatile and feel so luxurious. This mattress is great at temperature control and motion isolation. It also facilitates sexual activity much better than most hybrid mattresses you’ll find on the market.

The WinkBed offers 3 firmness levels just to make sure that you find your perfect fit. It also has a great lifetime warranty and a 120-night trial.


  • Ideal for side and back sleepers
  • Additional bounce and contouring
  • Great for shoppers who want to try a mattress for a full year

The goal of hybrid mattresses is to get the benefits of multiple materials while minimizing the downsides, and there aren’t many mattresses that exemplify this better than the DreamCloud, our pick for best hybrid model on the market.

The DreamCloud uses multiple types of foam in combination with innerspring coils that allow it to control temperature better and provide superior bounce, sound conforming, and motion isolation.

The first layer on the DreamCloud is made of polyfoam that is quilted into the cashmere blend cover. The next layer has a two-tiered comfort system with a mix of memory foam and gel. This part provides additional support with a little bit of cradling for pressure points and heavier areas. The third layer is made of polyfoam that has a little more bounce but is less contouring, which gives this mattress a nice balance. 

The support core on this mattress is composed of a combination of coils that are individually wrapped. These are arranged into specific zones which allows them to distribute the weight better over the mattress. They also increase edge support while giving it the bounce needed to move freely. There’s also a small layer of polyfoam underneath that limits noise and fortifies the mattress.

This mattress has a medium firm feel (6) and can fit the needs of most, though it’s usually a big winner with back and side sleepers. It also offers balanced performance, which makes sit a great option for both couples and combination sleepers.

The trial on the DreamCloud is one year, which will give you plenty of time to test the waters. The mattress also has a lifetime warranty, which will reassure many buyers.

Nolah Original

  • Perfect for couples
  • Side sleepers
  • People dealing with back or hip issues

This is the flagship model from Nolah Sleep and has a mixed-polyfoam construction that makes it great at treating pressure points in the hips and back. It’s also a relatively affordable model when compared to other foam-based mattresses.

The comfort layers on this mattress are made of high-resilience polyfoam that offers a perfect mix of conforming and balance. This allows the mattress to cushion the parts of the body that are the most in need. Their patented Airfoam combines the responsiveness of high-density polyfoam and contouring of memory foam. The sleep surface is reinforced by a high density polyfoam base layer.  It also has a nice moisture wicking top that helps keep temperature low when compared with other foam mattresses.

The Nolah Original has a medium firm feel (5.5) which is one of the most common settings for most buyers today. Its all-foam moderately contouring construction makes it great for motion isolation and pressure relief. The mattress also performs pretty well across all categories.
