Overview of the Elm Sleep Mattress

Elm Sleep launched in late 2022 and is making a splash among online influencers. The Elm mattress comes in 4 models, a 15 inch, Resort Collection that comes in a Plush and Firm and a less expensive 13 inch model that also comes in a Plush and Firm. 

Regardless of which model you choose, Elm Sleep offers a 1 Year trial, with free shipping and returns as well as a lifetime warranty. 

Ordering and Unboxing the Elm Mattress

Your Elm Mattress will ship quickly, I believe from Texas and will arrive via UPS or FedEx in a box like this. This is a queen size Elm Resort Collection mattress in here.

The Whisper mattress from Shuteye Home is the supportive mattress you have been looking for. While there are hundreds of online mattress brands to choose from, Shuteye has dialed in a mattress with a great supportive base layer of coils with just the right amount of pressure relief without sinking in too much. You get a mattress that won’t leave you sore in the morning and will sleep cool all night. Below are my findings.  If you are looking for a quality firm mattress that won’t break your budget, the Whisper is for you.

Ordering and Unboxing the Whisper Mattress

You can order the Whisper directly through the Shut Eye Home website. Once you place your order, your mattress will ship via FedEx or UPS to your house in about 7-10 days. No need to wait for delivery, it will be dropped off at your doorstep. Simply bring the box into your bedroom and cut open the packaging; your Whisper mattress will be ready to sleep on within about 3-4 hours with minimal off-gassing. This mattress is made in the USA and comes with a 120-night trial and 10-year warranty.

Construction of the Whisper Mattress

Whisper isn’t bashful about giving out the full specs of their mattress. It is an incredible value when you consider the dense foam and quality coil system.  Normally, this type of construction is found in mattresses that cost thousands more.

401M Luxury Firm EuroTop Quilt

Cool-touch duel polymer blend quilting offers stretch and breathability. 1″, 1.5lb satin enhanced, fire-retardant fiber

Upholstery

3 – 1” layers of CertiPUR certified PolyFoam (1.5 lb 16 ILD MED-SOFT)

Pocket coil support

8” ISP-Manufactured Pocketed Coil Unit with 2 rows of lower gauge/thicker steel along both outside (long) edges of the coil unit. No Foam Encasement to break down, just edge to edge steel

Base support

1” Layer of 1.5lb 28ILD foam for the base layer

Whisper Mattress Construction

My Whisper Mattress Findings

Whisper has two firmness options, the Whisper Luxury Firm which is more of a medium feel and the Whisper Firm, which is a firm feel. Between the two, I prefer the Luxury firm since I usually sleep on my side. I sometimes wind up on my stomach but the Luxury Firm is still firm enough to support me. The Whisper Firm is a great choice for stomach and back sleepers but it also works for side sleepers that jut like a firm mattress.

It’s hard to find a truly firm mattress online. Over the years, the online brands skewed softer to appeal to a broader set of sleepers. The Whisper Firm fills the gap for a quality, firm mattress you can buy online in a box.

My Whisper Mattress Recommendation

Considering the specs of this mattress among its competitors, this mattress is an incredible value. While a queen-size Whisper retails for $1,799, we have an exclusive $300 discount where you can get it shipped free to your house for $1,499. This makes it hundreds less than the competition for quality that is just as good, if not better. You can try a Whisper mattress for 120 nights in your bedroom and if you don’t like it for whatever reason, it’s a free return, you get all your money back.

The Nolah Evolution mattress is a plush hybrid mattress that incorporates some of the best mattress technology available. It is designed to perfectly cradle and support side sleepers so that they can sleep all night without feeling the need to constantly change positions. And, if you sleep in the same position all night or most of the night, you want to make sure you don’t get too hot and the Nolah Evolution has you covered with their cooling euro top cover that is soft but cool to the touch. This mattress comes in a little higher priced than some of the other hybrids on the market but in this case, you certainly get what you pay for. It’s a great choice for dedicated side sleepers who have trouble with sleeping hot and want maximum pressure relief.

Overview of the Nolah Evolution 15 Mattress

Here’s a quick video overview from unboxing to my final thoughts.

Ordering the Nolah Evolution Mattress

You can order directly from the Nolah website. The mattress should arrive about a week after placing your order and arrive in a box. This is a really heavy mattress so you will need 2 people to get it into your bedroom but thankfully you don’t have to wait for the delivery person. It will be dropped off at your doorstep by FedEx or UPS.

How Much Does the Nolah Evolution 15 Cost?

Below are the prices of as of this writing and with the current $700 discount. Make sure you check their website for the latest prices and discounts.

Construction of the Nolah Evolution 15 Hybrid Mattress

Below are the construction details as listed on the Nolah website.

My Nolah Evolution 15 Findings

Here’s what the mattress looked like right when I unboxed it. A lot of time mattresses in a box will still look wrinkly or flat. This one sprung to life and looked great within minutes. I also found that there wasn’t all that much off-gassing. You could sleep on this mattress the same day after unboxing assuming you unbox it in the morning or early afternoon.

Nolah Evolution Unboxed

There are lots of great features with this mattress and one of them is handles. Because it is so heavy, they do come in handy if you want to rotate or move the mattress. The stitching is heavy-duty and they will hold up through multiple moves.

nolah evolution handle

What stood out most to me is the pillowtop. This is the kind of feel you get with a higher quality mattress. Pillowtops can be trick though. If you get one too soft, you are prone to sinking in too much and potentially rolling towards your partner at night. This will lead both of you towards a crater in the middle of the bed. That’s not the case with this mattress though. You certainly sink in but the spring system underneath is designed to prevent you from rolling towards each other.

nolah sinkage

Here I am sleeping on my side. As you can see the alignment here is great. I have wider shoulders since I am tall but what’s important is that my hips are well supported while I can still sink into the mattress.

nolah evolution side sleeping

This mattress is also suitable for back sleeping. I am not quite as flat as I would be with a firmer mattress but I definitely wasn’t uncomfortable and if I want to be flatter I could get a thinner pillow. That said, I don’t recommend this mattress for stomach sleepers. Because it has a thicker pillowtop it won’t provide optimal support.

Nolah back sleeping

Here’s a look inside the mattress. What you don’t see is the padding inside the pillowtop which makes up another layer. You can see the graphite-infused foam in gray and the high-density foam underneath. The final layer is a firm layer of foam that borders the entire mattress to provide good side support. I think this was a great choice because rather than springs, the foam can be made even firmer so you can sleep right up to the edge without feeling like you will roll off.

nolah evolution inside

Final Thoughts on the Nolah Evolution 15 Mattress

Creating a good side sleeper mattress is tricky. I have found over the years reviewing mattresses that a hybrid, spring and foam mattress is your best bet. But within that category, you need to figure your optimal balance of soft vs support. Everybody is different and I think the Nolah Evolution will appeal to side sleepers that prefer a plush feel that is designed to sleep cool without sinking in too much.

Gravity has made a name for itself when they introduced their popular, Gravity Blanket a few years ago. Since then, they have been broadening their offering of sleep-related products to pillows, robes, sheets and most recently, the Gravity Mattress. Normally when a company creates a mattress that is not their keystone product, it tends to underwhelm. But that’s not the case this with mattress. To the contrary, they should be promoting this mattress more. It is very cool to the touch with a phase change cover and just the right amount of foam at the top layer for maximum pressure relief without too much sink.

Overview and Ordering the Gravity Mattress

You can order this mattress exclusively from the Gravity website. Your Gravity mattress will arrive in a box like the one below. This is a heavy mattress because it has springs so you may want some help bringing it up any stairs. I just flip mine end over end to get it upstairs but just be careful. Once you open the mattress it comes to life quickly. There will be some off-gassing because there is foam at the top of the mattress but that will mostly dissipate within a day or two.

Construction of the Gravity Hybrid Mattress

gravity ice hybrid construction

Designed to be used with or without the Gravity Blanket, Gravity Ice Hybrid capitalizes on the growing trend of coil-foam combination design to provide you with a comfortable and well-supported night of sleep, each and every night.

  • The use of coils prevents your mattress from dipping or sagging during use – gently cradling the body for much-needed support to your hips and key spinal points, while still remaining extremely soft from the memory foam.
  • The coils also help the mattress keep its shape, providing you with many more years of use compared to pure memory foam mattresses, which lose shape over time.
  • The coil-foam combo increases airflow throughout the mattress, keeping you cooler than a traditional, heat-trapping memory foam mattress.
  • With a top layer of cooling gel, get an extra cooling sensation all night long. No expensive or noisy motors attached to the bed like some cooling mattresses!
  • Pair with our Gravity Blanket for the trifecta of sleep excellence: deep touch pressure on top of you for increased relaxation, foam/coil hybrid below you for gentle support, and a cooling gel layer between them both to regulate your temperature all night long.
  • Available in three sizes (Full, Queen and King) to provide sweet dreams no matter your bed size.

All Ice Hybrid Mattresses come with:

  1. Free Shipping
  2. 100-Day Return Policy
  3. 10-Year Limited Warranty

My Gravity Mattress Findings

What first impressed me about this mattress is the cool to the touch cover. This is becoming more common in mattresses, it’s also known as phase change material. The way it works is that it will absorb your body heat and provide a cooling sensation. This helps you cool down faster which will then help you fall asleep faster. The Gravity Ice Hybrid stood out because they use much more of this phase change material and it is a more noticeable effect, even when you use sheets and a mattress protector.

gravity ice hybrid cover

Here you can see how much sink you get with my 14 lb. bowling ball. It doesn’t sink much with the foam layers but when you put your body weight on it, the springs will start to sink providing more contouring.

gravity mattress sink

This mattress has more of a true medium feel. The foam layers are dense enough to provide good contouring and pressure relief. The spring system underneath provides an extra sink. Often I come across mattresses with a firmer coil system and softer foam layer. I like how this mattress feels though especially at my shoulders where the springs sink enough for the right contouring.

gravity side sleeping

Final Thoughts on the Gravity Mattress

While this mattress isn’t the centerpiece product of the Gravity company, they created a mattress that feels great. I recommend it for hot sleepers that want good contouring and pressure relief without sinking into the mattress too much. It’s great for combo sleepers, meaning it will accommodate any position well.  Motion transfer will occur but it is minimal because it has a pocket coil system. The border of the mattress is encased in foam which will give you great edge support so you can sleep right up to the edge of the mattress.

As with most of the online mattress brands, this mattress also comes with a 100 night trial where you can try it in your house for 100 nights before making a decision. If you decide to return it, it’s a free return and you will get a full refund. If you end up keeping it, you are backed by a 10-year warranty.

Silk and Snow mattress review
<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="https://sleepsherpa.com/silk-and-snow-hybrid-review/" rel="bookmark">Silk and Snow Hybrid Review</a></h2>

Silk and Snow has been selling mattresses online since 2017. They started with the all foam Silk and Snow mattress and this past year introduced the Silk and Snow Hybrid. Silk and Snow is very intentional about where they source their material and manufacture their mattresses. The hybrid model is made with foam, coils and fabric from Canada and is made in Canada. This mattress is great for sleepers that prefer a slighty firmer, more supportive feel that will sleep cool all night long. Given the construction and specs, this mattress is an incredible value.

Overview of the Silk and Snow Hybrid

Here’s a video overview of the Silk and Snow and what to expect.

You can order this mattress directly from their website. After you place your order, your mattress should arrive in about a week or two depending on where you live. The mattress comes roll packed but not folded. This means that the box will be the full width of the mattress. In my case, I was given a king size to review which made the box longer than most. Given the weight and size of the box, I advise 2 people to move it into your bedroom. In my case, I removed it from the box before I brought it in the house since the box was dirty and the mattress itself is still roll packed in plastic and won’t come loose until you cut the plastic open.

My Silk and Snow Hybrid Findings

This mattress has extra features that you don’t often see at this price point. For example, you get 1,200 pocket coils in the king size and zoned support. This really makes a difference. You get better contouring and less motion transfer. This mattress is also made with a rigid foam perimeter for better edge support so you can maximize the use of the mattress.

side sleeping silk and snow hybrid

The cover has a soft, silky feel with a silver infused cover that keeps the mattress fresh. Despite this, I still recommend using a mattress protector.

silk and snow squish

This mattress does provide contouring but I slept more, “on” the mattress than, “in” it. Because there is less of my body surrounded by the mattress, it just naturally sleeps cooler.

silk and snow hybrid sinkage

My Silk and Snow Hybrid Recommendation

I highly recommend this mattress for people looking for a firmer mattress that sleeps cool, provides great support, especially for your hips, and does not sleep hot. After discounts, you can get this mattress for $700 in a queen size which places it in my budget mattress category but not really because the specs on the mattress are right up there with some of the other top brands. This mattress comes with a now standard 100-night trial which means free shipping to you and free returns with a full refund if you don’t like it within the 100 night time period. This mattress is made in Canada with material sourced in Canada all for an incredible price.

La-Z-Boy is a household name and chances are that you or your grandparents had one of their recliners for watching TV or napping. La-Z Boy was started in 1927 in Monroe Michigan. Their first product was a wood slat porch chair which eventually was upholstered and became a staple in living room furniture. Over the years as the company grew they expanded into other furniture and most recently, mattresses. It’s not always easy for legacy brands like La-Z-Boy to enter a new category, especially the online mattress startup category but they do have a lot going for them including a network of stores nationwide

My La-Z-Boy Mattress Findings

The La-Z-Boy Lux feels great right out of the box. It also comes to shape right out of the box too and I attribute that to the quality foams used inside. I found this mattress to have a medium to medium-soft feel. As you can see from the picture below, it’s easy to push my hand into this mattress.

sitting on lazy boy

Here’s another view of me pressing into the mattress. The energex layer of foam is really forgiving and contours quickly but also recovers quickly. Having the spring system helps with support so it’s OK that this mattress is on the softer side, you still get really good support.

lazy boy squish

Here’s another shot with my 14 lb. bowing ball to illustrate sinkage and contouring. The springs and energex foam also help this mattress with bounce so its easy to switch positions at night.

la-z-boy sinkage

The cover is made with a proprietary material called iClean which is stain resistant. I recently bought a stain-resistant recliner from La-Z-Boy and it does a phenomenal job of repelling stains from my 2 kids and dogs. Not only is it stain resistant but the fabric is still stretchy allowing you to get all the benefits of the contouring comfort layers.

la-z-boy fabric

Here you can see how well it contours for side sleeping. My shoulders really sank into this mattress which helps tremendously with comfort. I prefer to sleep on my side but if a mattress is too firm, I will end up on my stomach which is not an ideal sleep position. Inevitably I will change positions multiple times per night, which most people do, but I changing positions on this mattress is super easy because you have the springs system and foam that recovers quickly. I didn’t feel like I had to catapult myself out of my position.

la-z-boy side sleeping

Here’s a look at what’s going on inside the mattress when you apply pressure. Now when you are lying on it, the springs will be more engaged. However keep in mind that the perimeter coils, which I’m pressing down on are firmer than the inside coils to provide better edge support.

Pressing La-Z-Boy

My Lay-Z-Boy Recommendation

Overall this mattress is a solid contender with the other online mattress brands. Pricewise it is more expensive than some of the other hybrids on the market but it is made in the USA using premium foams, springs and cover fabrics so it should have a great lifespan. It also comes with a 100 night trial as many of the online brands have. So you can certainly return it if you don’t like it and because it is Lay-Z-Boy, you can expect good customer service from a company that has been around almost 100 years.

I recommend this mattress for side sleepers that tend to sleep hot and change positions frequently. The mattress is versatile enough to accommodate back sleeping and occasional stomach sleeping.

The Idle Sleep mattress is a hybrid mattress that is 2-sided. That means you can sleep on either side and flip it to make it last longer. This is the first 2-sided hybrid mattress I have reviewed and so far I am very impressed with it.  The biggest reason for people switching to a new mattress is that it no longer offers the support they need. This is caused by sleeping on it for a long period of time and creating impressions.

You can choose from two different firmness levels with the Idle sleep which are “medium” and “luxury firm”

Overview of the Idle Sleep Hybrid Mattress

Below is a video overview of the mattress. I am on the medium-firm version here.

A queen-size Idle Hybrid retails for $1,499 but you can get $300 off right now with their coupon code NEWYEAR30 at checkout. Idle also offers a financing option through Klarna. Delivery times are between 3-10 business days. Shipping is free and the mattress comes with a lifetime warranty and 120-night sleep trial so you can try it out in the comfort of your home for up to 120 days and return it for free within that time if you don’t like it. Idle Sleep asks you to try the mattress out for at least 30 nights before returning. That’s to give it a fair chance it takes a little while for your body to adjust to a new mattress so it’s hard to make any judgments about it right away.

Regarding the lifetime warranty, this is a 20-year warranty and after 20 years, Idle will let you buy a new mattress at 50% off. Although 20 years is a long ways away!

My Idle Sleep Findings

Idle Sleep was created by a sleep industry veteran with over 18 years in the mattress industry. This is somewhat uncommon in the online mattress world where most of the company leadership is more experienced in marketing rather than mattresses themselves.

The Idle Sleep Hybrid comes in a box like this. It is a heavy mattress weighing 142 lbs. for a queen size. This is a very good indicator of quality especially since there is a spring system occupying the middle. I expect this mattress to have a long life just given the construction.

The mattress is easy to unbox and once you cut open the plastic it pops into shape quickly. I would give it at least 7-8 hours before it is fully expanded. Here’s a picture of the mattress right out of the box before I cut open the plastic to allow it to expand.

 

Here’s a picture of the mattress just after opening it. As you can see it is just about full size. That’s because the springs pop open instantly.

I set up this mattress on a bed with slats. It will work on a box spring or even the floor. As long as you have a flat, solid surface, you’re good.

So how does the Idles Sleep Mattress feel? To give you an idea, here’s a picture of the sinkage on the medium-firm version.

idle sinkage

As you can see you get good sinkage right off the bat. This is true with the luxury firm version as well but to a lesser extent. When you sit on this mattress you really sink into it and it cradles you more than the luxury firm.

 

I would say the medium-firm version is around an 8.5 out of ten on the firmness scale with 10 being the softest. The Luxury firm is considerably firmer and is about a 6 out of 10. Of course, weight all plays a role in this, and the heavier you are the softer these mattresses will feel. I weight about 195 lbs.

Here’s how the mattresses perform with motion transfer. First the medium-firm Idle:

The mattresses have pocked coil systems which isolate motion so for being a hybrid mattress this does a great job with motion transfer. I would say if motion transfer is a primary concern, the luxury firm would be the better choice.

 

Below are some videos that show how cool the mattresses sleep. I used my infrared camera to show heat dissipation off the surface of the mattress. Overall this mattress is about middle of the road for a hybrid mattress and sleeping cool. I don’t think it sleeps hot and nor does it sleep especially cool. So if sleeping hot isn’t an issue for you this mattress is great.

The Idle Sleep mattress uses the quantum coil system. There are firmer coils along the perimeter of the mattress which makes for better edge support. This allows you to maximize your entire sleep surface and sleep right up to the edge without feeling like you will fall off.

My Idle Sleep Recommendation

Overall I was really impressed with both versions of this mattress. I prefer a softer feel and the medium firm was just the right amount of softness and support for me. People who complain about sore shoulders at night will appreciate how much this mattress sinks and contours. People who want to go the firmer route should go with the luxury firm. I would also recommend the luxury firm to heavier sleepers as the medium-firm probably won’t give them the necessary support.

I am very impressed that this is a two-sided mattress. If you flip this mattress on a regular basis you should be able to extend the lifespan of the mattress over what you would normally get out of a one-sided mattress. Since this mattress comes with stitched handles, flipping is easy and can be done by one person.

If you’re looking for a quality hybrid mattress that should last beyond 8 years, I would take a serious look at Idle Sleep. It is very competitively priced for the quality of materials and construction.

The Sweetnight 12-inch plush pillow top hybrid mattress, also known as the Sweetnight Island mattress, is loaded with features you’d find in an expensive mattress from a fancy showroom but at a fraction of the cost. The Sweetnight mattress features memory foam, motion-isolating individually-wrapped coils and it is CeriPUR-US Certified. I’m always amazed that a mattress like this can fit in a box. The Sweetnight was shipped for free via Amazon.

 

Overview of the Sweetnight Hybrid Mattress

I’m an avid online shopper for just about everything. Despite my online shopping habit, until recently I had never purchased a mattress without laying down on it first. When Sweetnight sent me this mattress to review I jumped at the chance. This was only my second experience with unboxing a vacuum-packed mattress. Watch the video below for my experience.

I’ve spent most of my life sleeping on standard coil spring mattresses. My sleep was often easily disturbed by my partner tossing and turning. The motion transfer was enough to disrupt my sleep. I am thoroughly impressed with the stability of the Sweetnight mattress and the minimal movement felt when my partner moved around. Not to mention, those individually wrapped coils support your body and help maintain proper back alignment and support.

Overall the mattress firmness of the Sweentnight is in the low to mid-range based on how it felt to me. This is what I would expect with a pillow-top and memory foam mattress.

How much does the Sweetnight 12-inch Mattress Cost?

I tested the King size of this mattress which is currently unavailable on Amazon. The queen and full sizes are reasonably priced for such a great night’s sleep.

SizePrice
Twin$248
Queen$498

Construction of the Sweetnight Hybrid Mattress

At the base of the mattress are the individually wrapped steel coils. On top of the coils is a layer of egg-crate style foam that promotes airflow. The gel memory foam sits on top of the foam and is topped with another layer of the egg-crate style foam. The mattress has a cooling and soft cover made from knitted fabric. The mattress is plush yet motion stable. For those who run hot, the cooling foam is an added benefit.

My Sweetnight Hybrid Mattress Recommendation

It’s still early in my regular use of the Sweetnight 12-inch plush pillow top hybrid mattress but I see no evidence that the quality and comfort won’t hold up. There is virtually no outgassing from the mattress and the motion isolation coils surrounded by cooling and memory foam make this hard to beat. It’s a great value and the comfort rivals more expensive high-end mattresses. I am gifting this mattress to a friend, but I am giving it up with mixed emotions. I haven’t slept this well in weeks, so I might need to buy another for myself. Keep in mind you also get a 100 night trial with this mattress and a 10-year warranty so you have nothing to lose.

Spine Align is a company founded by Dr. Jason Loth, a sports chiropractor with over 17-years experience. With his background, he developed a unique pillow called the Spine Align Pillow which provides optimal spine support for any sleeping position. Recently, Spine Align launched 3 new mattresses all made in the USA. I received the 13.5″ Deep Sleep Hybrid Mattress free for review which is the plushest of the 3 offerings.

Overview of the Spine Align Mattress

Although this mattress is over 13 inches deep and has a spring system, it still comes roll packed in a box and will ship to your door. Here’s a picture of it taken out of the box but still in the packaging.

 

As you can imagine it takes a lot of force to compress and wrap this mattress. Once you open it though, it comes to life quickly. You can hear air being sucked into the mattress as you cut through the plastic. Here’s what it looks like after opening.

Here’s a video overview of the mattress and what sets it apart. As you can see it is a thick mattress with layers of high quality material throughout.

Construction of the Deep Sleep Hybrid

Below are the construction details of the mattress as listed on their website. This mattress is somewhat similar in construction to other hybrids on the market but what sets it apart is that the top layers are more responsive and breathable while still giving you a cozy feeling.

1.5″ OF ARCTICPHASE™ GEL-INFUSED FOAM


Gives you both the soft comfort and the responsive support you’re looking for which is where most memory foams fail. This amazing hyper-elastic foam also promotes cooling because nobody wants to sleep hot, and has antibacterial properties for a more comfortable and healthy sleeping environment.

1.5″ OF SERENE™ FOAM


We chose this unique foam because it actually gives greater support, has greater cooling properties, and relieves pressure points more effectively than traditional memory foam. In other words, Serene™ foam helps to cradle and comfort your body to give you exceptional support that’s needed for correct spinal alignment.

1.5″ OF PRIMETRA™ FOAM


Our PrimeTRA™ foam acts as a transitional layer of high-density foam, providing greater strength and durability to our individually pocketed coil system.

8″ OF  MAX ENGINEERED POCKETED COILS


For added support. We have included a full 8 inches of individually pocketed coils, increasing responsiveness to movement while isolating your movement to minimize sleep disturbance. You also get the added benefit of greater edge support that many mattresses don’t offer.

1″ OF HD SUPPORTIVE BASE FOAM


Long-lasting and durable compacted foam, giving the mattress a solid and durable foundation.

My Spine Align Mattress Findings

The 13.5″ Deep Sleep model is the plushest of the 3 mattress offerings from Spine Align. Here’s a picture of my 14 lb. bowling ball sinking into the mattress. It has a pillow top feel without actually having a pillow top.

Here’s a view from the side to contouring and hug. The spring system provides good edge support so you won’t feel like rolling off the side.

Spine Align Contouring

This video demonstrates motion transfer on the mattress. Aside from the pocket coil system, the top layer of serene foam provides a little extra bounce which basically makes this mattress feel like a traditional mattress even though there are layers of foam.

This mattress has extra details such as handles on two sides to make rotating or transporting the mattress super easy.

My Spine Align Deep Sleep Recommendation

The Spine Align Deep Sleep Hybrid is an excellent choice for side sleepers looking for superior contouring without getting too hot. Spine Align incorporates next-gen foams are more breathable and resilient. This mattress was developed with the expertise of a chiropractor that understands the importance of spinal alignment and I think he nailed it with this mattress. For side sleepers, it hits the mark where I didn’t feel like my hips sank too much but my shoulders weren’t sore either.

Like most online mattress brands, this mattress comes with a 100 night trial with a free return so there’s certainly no risk in trying.
