Foam Mattresses vs Hybrid Mattresses: Which is Better?

By Cheyanne Lobo
We know searching for a bed is challenging. And understanding different types of mattresses…well, that can feel impossible. If you’re wondering which is better for you, a foam or hybrid model, you’ve come to the right place. In this buyer's guide, we’ll dive into how a hybrid mattress vs a foam mattress differs by comparing cost, construction, and each mattress’s unique features. Your perfect sleep surface is waiting!

What is a Foam Mattress?

Foam mattresses are certainly one of the most popular beds, but foam quality and materials vary. There’s latex foam, memory foam, gel foam, and (our personal favourite) Endy Comfort Foam. Generally, all these mattresses include different layers to contribute to the mattress's overall feel. Take the Endy Mattress, it provides three layers of comfort: a high-density foundational layer, a transition foam layer, and a proprietary Comfort Foam layer. See for yourself:

A Look Inside

  1. Micro Quilted Cover
The four-way stretch cover on the Endy Mattress is soft, breathable, and machine-washable for clean, comfortable sleep night after night.

  1. 2” Endy Comfort Foam
Experience perfect medium-firm support with our highly responsive proprietary foam. Unlike memory foam, our foam’s open-cell structure provides optimal airflow for cooler sleep.

  1. 3” Transition Foam
This layer is essential for pressure relief and eliminating motion transfer. Go ahead, take that midnight bathroom run—you won’t disturb anyone.

  1. 5” Support Foam
High-density foam keeps your mattress perfectly firm and supportive for 15 years* (https://ca.endy.com/pages/endy-15-year-warranty). Rest easy knowing you’re getting your money's worth!

Foam Features

Perfect Comfort & Support: while hybrid mattresses are fantastic for those who need additional support, most sleepers would benefit from a foam mattress like the Endy Mattress. Whether you’re a side sleeper, back sleeper, or stomach sleeper, the Endy Mattress has the perfect balance of comfort and support.Pressure Relief: foam mattresses respond to your body to relieve pressure in areas where tension builds (think your lower back). Like memory foam, Endy cradles your shoulders and hips. But unlike memory foam, our Comfort Foam eliminates pressure points with its superior responsiveness.Motion Isolation: foam is the best choice for motion isolation. The material absorbs all movement and only compresses beneath your weight. So activity on one side of the bed doesn’t affect the other side—that’s the beauty of zero motion transfer!

Should I Buy a Foam Mattress?

Do you sleep hot? We recommend purchasing a high-quality foam mattress like ours or a hybrid mattress. Our award-winning Endy Mattress has an open-cell structure that allows air to pass through and move between cells to help with temperature regulation. Heed our warning—memory foam mattresses are notorious for trapping warmth. They rely on heat to form to your body. As you sleep, you’ll become sweatier and sweatier…not so comfy in the long run!Do you sleep with a partner? Foam is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for motion isolation. All three layers of the Endy Mattress (including our transition foam layer) work to provide a gradual transfer of energy. Individual air cells across the mattress only absorb pressure applied directly to them, so tossing and turning won’t affect the other side of the bed.Do you have back pain? Foam mattresses are great for pressure relief. Ours is award-winning and Canadian chiropractor-approved. Why? Well, it’s simple. Endy Comfort Foam is highly resilient, bouncing back instantly to ensure your lower back and hips are supported. Foam mattresses are a great choice for eliminating morning soreness.

What is a Hybrid Mattress?

True to their name, hybrid models combine the technology of innerspring mattresses and another material (typically foam) to create one incredibly supportive bed. The Endy Hybrid Mattress, for instance, is made of high-carbon steel pocket coils and three types of foam. The goal? To combine the benefits of springs with the benefits of foam so that sleepers can get the best of both worlds! Here's how our Hybrid Mattress looks inside:

A Look Inside

  1. 1/4" Plush Quilted Cover
The plush quilted top layer of the Endy Hybrid Mattress is ultra-comfortable and soft to the touch for added comfort while you rest.

  1. 2” Endy Comfort Foam
Experience perfect medium-firm support with our highly responsive proprietary foam. Unlike memory foam, our foam’s open-cell structure provides optimal airflow for cooler sleep.

  1. 3” Transition Foam
This layer is essential for pressure relief and eliminating motion transfer. Go ahead and roll around—you won’t wake up your partner.

  1. 6" High-Carbon Steel Pocket Coils
Made from high-carbon steel, our pocket coils are quiet and durable. Enjoy ergonomic lumbar support in the areas that need it most with the same perfect firmness as the Endy Mattress.

  1. 1.75" Support Foam
High-density foam keeps your mattress feeling perfectly firm and supportive for 15 years*. Talk about a great investment!

Hybrid Features:

Breathability: with pocket coils, air easily passes through the mattress so you can keep cool. Plus, the Endy Hybrid Mattress's coils complement our signature open-cell foam for ultra-breathable sleep throughout the night—cooling technology that works!Extra Support & Comfort: hybrid’s have superior edge support compared to foam mattresses and they have zoned lumbar support with hundreds of coils that give these mattresses extra firmness in the areas that need it most. On the Endy Hybrid Mattress, the plush, quilted top surface balances that extra support with luxurious comfort.Motion Isolation: spring-only mattresses get a bad rap for having poor motion isolation, meaning if you move on one side of the bed, the other side feels it. However, with the addition of foam, hybrid mattresses like ours achieve zero motion transfer so that you can rest undisturbed.

Should I Buy a Hybrid Mattress?

Are you new to foam mattresses? If you’re accustomed to spring mattresses, a hybrid mattress is the perfect in-between. You can experience all the benefits of a foam mattress without taking the full leap from standard coils. A hybrid mattress offers all of the advantages of foam alongside the extra support and durability of coils.Do you need extra support? If foam mattresses aren’t right for you, an added coil layer provides more support. The Endy Hybrid Mattress, for instance, delivers zoned firmness from hundreds of high-carbon steel coils to help support your spine in all the right places (while providing plush comfort)!Do you prefer to sleep higher off the ground? If you prefer added height, the Endy Hybrid Mattress contains a 6-inch layer of pocket coils, bringing the mattress's height to 13 inches. This can make it easier to get in and out of bed. However, not all hybrid mattresses are as high and have the same great features as the Endy Hybrid Mattress—do your research before buying (pssst…you’re on the right track by reading this article).
