There are many different types of mattresses designed to meet the needs of many different types of sleepers. The right mattress for you depends on a number of factors including sleep position, support needs, comfort preferences, joint discomfort, medical history, temperature and more.
We’ve broken down the three main categories of mattresses to provide guidance while narrowing down what type of mattress is best for you during the research phase of purchasing a new bed.
Innerspring Mattress
Innerspring Mattress
Innerspring mattresses throughout the years have been tweaked and improved to provide the level of comfort that they do today. Innersprings are made from steel coil support systems that keep your weight evenly distributed as you sleep. This type of mattress is designed to offer ultimate spinal alignment and pressure relief.


  • Innerspring mattresses dominate the charts in terms of providing proper support, pressure relief, and spinal alignment.
  • Available at a variety of different price points to fit every budget.


  • Not all innerspring mattresses are compatible with an adjustable base, which is a highly recommended sleep accessory for individuals with sleep apnea or joint discomfort.
Memory Foam Mattress

Recent advances in technology have allowed this type of mattress to become more prevalent. These mattresses are composed of several layers of different types of foam. It gradually conforms to your body and relieves pressure points for a luxurious sleeping experience.
Memory foam also ranges from firm to soft and are adjustable base friendly. Consumers love memory foam mattresses because they provide long-lasting, full-body support and different comfort levels, which is ideal for individuals seeking pressure relief.


  • These mattresses are available in a variety of comfort levels for every type of sleeper, from extra firm to ultra-plush.
  • Memory foam technology absorbs movement, which is ideal for light sleepers who excessively toss and turn or a sleeper who shares a bed with a partner.
  • Some memory foam mattresses include cooling gel, which dissipates heat and helps warm sleepers stay temperature-regulated throughout the night.
  • Adjustable base compatible.


  • Initially, these mattresses tend to have a firmer feel and require a longer adjustment period than most other mattresses.
  • Not all memory foam mattresses are created equal and some will have different firmness levels than others.
  • Memory foam mattresses with cooling gel technology might be at a slightly higher price point than a traditional memory foam mattress.
Hybrid Mattress

A hybrid mattress provides a blend of the innerspring and memory foam technology. This type of mattress is constructed with coils underneath memory foam. It strikes a balance between support and comfort, creating a cutting-edge sleeping surface. The coils act as foundational support while the memory foam meets every curvature of the sleeper’s body.


  • Provides the best of both worlds – memory foam and innerspring.
  • Hybrid options are available in a variety of materials, including cooling gel technology.
  • Offers a supportive and pressure-relieving sleeping surface.


  • Due to the popularity of the term hybrid, be on the lookout for hybrid mattresses with only small amounts of memory foam. Mattress Warehouse cautions consumers not to be fooled into purchasing inferior products that claim that they are hybrid yet do not have a significant amount of memory foam to balance properly with the innerspring technology.
