When you buy a "hybrid latex mattress" it can be far more difficult to determine exactly what's gone into the construction of your bed. What's in the core? How was it produced? How many layers are in your mattress, and what components are in each of them? The label leaves a great deal of wiggle-room.
A mattress that's billed as a "hybrid latex mattress" instead of a "blended latex mattress" is not an all-latex mattress. "Hybrid" denotes a mattress built partially of latex and partially of non-latex components.
The cover of the Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress is made up of a organic cotton and wool designed to provide cooling and airflow to the mattress.
The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex mattress comes in both Medium and Firm models, which are essentially different firmnesses of latex in the top layer. We felt the Medium is a 6 out of 10 (10 being the firmest), and the Firm more of an 8 out of 10.
|If you choose to invest in a hybrid latex mattress, please take the time to understand enough about mattress construction to ensure that you're getting a good value. Remember the simple rule of thumb: the thicker the latex, the better the value. Still, it's important to understand what lies under or inside the latex as well, so that you can understand how long your mattress will last.
If your hybrid mattress "bottoms out" in two years so that you're plagued with back pain and restless nights, your cozy investment will quickly become a nightmare. Buy from a trusted source and be sure to understand exactly what lies under your mattress cover.
