Components in the center of this hybrid mattress discourage sagging. Tempered steel coils ensure firm support for the back and reduce pressure point discomfort. Extra comfort and cooling layers provide a plush feel without making sleepers too hot. Trial period of 120 nights and 20-year warranty are generous.
Mattress is very firm, and there is no softer option available.
With extra iCoil pocket springs, this extra-firm mattress provides very good support for larger sleepers. Two comfort foam layers, including a pressure-relieving layer. Maintains its firmness and support for years.
May be uncomfortable for stomach sleepers due to its firmness.
A high-density foam base provides firm underlying support and helps this mattress last longer, while two top layers of cool gel foam make it comfortable for those who sleep hot. Extra-thick profile (14 inches high) is Certipur-US certified. Users with back pain find it firm yet comfortable.
Mattress tends to soften in the middle after two to three years.
GhostBed’s newest hybrid mattress offers much better support for heavier-weight sleepers than its original mattress. A contour foam layer at the center of the mattress provides some pushback support that counteracts the top memory foam layer’s tendency to wrap around the body.
Requires additional purchase of a specific base to work correctly.
Rated for sleepers up to 500 pounds, this mattress relies on adaptive foam rather than springs to provide support without being too firm or aggravating pressure points. CertiPur-US certified. A 10-year warranty and 100-night sleep trial boost consumer confidence.
Edge support is not that great, and some sleepers don’t like sinking so far into the mattress.
Heavyweight sleepers face a dilemma when purchasing mattresses: most memory-foam mattresses either aren’t supportive enough or lose support too quickly. Traditional mattresses are a gamble, as they rely on separate support from a platform or box spring. Hybrid mattresses, which combine innerspring coils with foam top layers, work well for sleepers over 250 pounds but can cost significantly more. When buying a mattress, consider not just the sleeper’s weight but also their preferred sleeping positions. Side and stomach sleepers, for example, need top cushioning to cradle the body’s curves. Back sleepers need firm support. Combination sleepers may need to dial in a combination of support and cushioning, something that mattresses with a height of 10 inches or more may best provide.
