What is a hybrid mattress?

A hybrid mattress is a multi-layer mattress that blends memory foam, latex, or gel with an innerspring structure. This allows sleepers to feel both the pressure relief from the foam layers and the strong feel of a traditional spring mattress.   

Will a hybrid mattress sag?

The answer to this question is yes, a hybrid mattress can sag. The foam materials in the mattress will soften over time, as they are subjected to a substantial amount of pressure each night from your body whilst you are sleeping. Gradually, the softening of the foam will cause a feeling of sinking of sagging, and will allow you less support than you had in the early days of purchasing the mattress.

However, a hybrid mattress is made up of both foam and coils, and these coils make a second line of protection against sagging. This is because the coils don’t start to lose tension until the foam is a lot softer. 

The short answer is hybrid mattresses can sag, but they do last considerably longer than a basic foam mattress would.

How can I prevent my hybrid mattress from sagging?

Sagging is the product of everyday wear and tear to your mattress, though, there are ways to reduce the speed of the process.

The first way to do this is by rotating your mattress, it is likely that you sleep on a certain side or corner of the mattress each night. The continuous pressure from this will affect the specific part of the mattress as its being used the most. It is advised that you rotate your mattress every three to six months, consequently shifting the part of the mattress that you are affecting.

Though, some mattresses are not made to be flipped, as majority of mattresses are designed to be one-sided. Thus, guaranteeing that you are only turning your mattress instead of flipping it.

The second way to prevent a hybrid mattress from sagging is to examine the frame and structure of the bed. Occasionally, the bed slats can be to far apart which can cause your mattress to sink between the slats, causing the mattress to sag.

You should also try and add additional support under the base of your bed frame. This is usually where there is the least amount of support, so if you are able, you should try and have a foundation that comes with minimum of six legs.
