BedInABox Original Hybrid Overview
- Comfortable and Supportive: The BedInABox Original Hybrid is made with a combination of memory foam and springs, which provides a comfortable and supportive sleep experience. The memory foam contours to your body, while the springs provide lift and bounce. This makes the mattress a good choice for people of all sleep positions.
- CertiPUR-US® certified: The foams used in the BedInABox Original Hybrid are CertiPUR-US® certified, which means they are free of harmful chemicals and meet strict performance standards. This gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are sleeping on a safe and healthy mattress.
- Affordable: The BedInABox Original Hybrid is a relatively affordable mattress, especially considering the quality of the materials used. This makes it a good option for budget-minded shoppers.
- Easy to Transport and Set Up: The BedInABox Original Hybrid is a "mattress-in-a-box," which means it is shipped compressed in a box. This makes it easy to transport and set up, even if you live in a small apartment or have limited storage space.
- Memory Foam May Trap Heat: Memory foam mattresses can trap heat because they conform closely to the body, which can be uncomfortable in hot weather, especially for heavy sleepers. However, the hybrid construction of the BedInABox Original Hybrid helps to counteract this effect.
Who do we Recommend the BedInABox Original Hybrid for
- People who are a combination of back and side sleepers: The medium firmness of the BedInABox Original Hybrid can provide support for both back and side sleepers.
- Couples: The BedInABox Original Hybrid has pocket coils that help reduce motion transfer. This means that you will not be disturbed by your partner's movements as much.
- People who are looking for a durable and long-lasting mattress: Hybrid mattresses are often more durable than memory foam mattresses because the coils provide added support and resilience. This means that the BedInABox Original Hybrid is designed to last for many years, even with regular use.
Unboxing the BedInABox Original Hybrid
BedInABox was founded on the idea of making it easier and more convenient to buy a mattress. They were the first company to introduce the concept of a compressed, rolled-up mattress that could be shipped in a box. This made it possible for people to buy a mattress online and have it delivered to their door without having to worry about dealing with a bulky mattress.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress is easy to unbox, but it is heavy, weighing between 61 and 125 pounds, so it may require two people to lift it. To unbox, simply remove the mattress from the box and unroll it onto your bed. The mattress will quickly expand to its full size within seconds. The corners will also fluff up and expand, indicating great corner expansion.
One of the best things about the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress is that it does not have a strong chemical odor. This is a common complaint with other bed-in-a-box mattresses, but the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress is different. The mattress has a slight, non-irritating odor that dissipates within a few hours. This makes the unboxing experience much more pleasant.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For BedInABox Original Hybrid
BedInABox Original Hybrid Firmness
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has a medium firmness, a 5 on our scale. This means that it should be suitable for most people, but it is important to keep in mind that how a mattress feels depends on a number of factors, including weight, sleeping position, and personal preference.
For example, a person who weighs 200 pounds may find the mattress to be softer than a person who weighs 150 pounds. Similarly, a person who sleeps on their side may find the mattress to be more comfortable than a person who sleeps on their back.
Ultimately, the best way to determine if the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress is right for you is to try it out for yourself.
BedInABox Original Hybrid Feel
When we first laid on the BedInABox Original Hybrid, we were immediately struck by the soft, luxurious feel of the cover. The knit fabric was smooth and plush, and it felt like a cloud beneath us. As we lay there, we started to feel the comfort and support layers working their magic. The memory foam hugged our bodies and conformed to our shapes, while the coils provided a firm foundation. We felt both lifted and snuggled at the same time.
The more we lay there, the more we relaxed into the mattress. The pressure on our bodies was relieved, and we felt completely at peace. We could feel the tension melting away from our muscles.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid is a truly unique mattress that offers a combination of comfort and support that is unmatched by other mattresses. The soft, luxurious cover, the conforming memory foam, and the supportive coils work together to create a sleeping experience that is simply divine.
BedInABox Original Hybrid Comfort
We were confident that such a popular brand would offer optimum comfort to most sleepers, but we wanted to test this ourselves. We put the mattress to the test with our reviewers, who have different weights and sleeping styles, and the table below summarizes our findings.
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Very Good|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Very Good||Very Good||Good|
Overall, the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress was found to be a comfortable option for most sleepers. However, it is important to note that individual experiences may vary. We will also test the pressure relief performance of the mattress later in our review.
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress is an 11-inch mattress that is made with a combination of memory foam and coils. The mattress is CertiPUR-US® certified, which means that it meets strict standards for content, emissions, and durability. It is also OEKO-TEX® certified, which means that it has been tested for harmful substances.
- Soft Knit Cover: This cover is made from a soft, luxurious knit fabric that is soft to the touch and has a blue border that makes the mattress look sleek.
- CoolRest® Gel Memory Foam: This layer is designed to provide pressure relief and cooling comfort. The gel memory foam conforms to the shape of your body, helping to evenly distribute your weight and relieve pressure points. The cooling gel helps to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
- SureAlign® High-Density Foam: This transition layer provides additional support for the memory foam layer. It also helps prevent the memory foam from sagging over time and correctly aligns your spine.
- Pocketed Coils: This layer provides bounce and edge support. The pocket coils are individually wrapped, which helps reduce motion transfer and improve the overall feel of the mattress.
- Support Layer: This layer provides the mattress with its base support. It is made from a high-density foam that is designed to be durable and long-lasting.
Performance of BedInABox Original Hybrid
Hybrid mattresses are known to be more cooling than all-foam mattresses because they have coils that help circulate air. The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has a cooling cover that is soft and breathable. The mattress also has a layer of gel memory foam that helps to wick away heat.
We performed a cooling performance test on the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress by lying on it for 20 minutes and monitoring its heat retention. In the first few minutes, we felt the cool, soft fabric of the cover against our skin. As we lay there, we felt the mattress conform to our bodies. We didn't feel any hot spots or areas of discomfort.
Overall, the mattress maintained a comfortable temperature throughout the test, with no excessive heat buildup.
While it wasn't the coolest mattress we've ever tried, it still performed well for a mattress that has memory foam with no unique cooling technologies, so we gave it a 4.3/5 regarding cooling performance.
Hybrid mattresses are known to be more responsive than all-foam mattresses because they have coils that help them rebound quickly. The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has a layer of pocketed coils that are individually wrapped, which helps to improve responsiveness.
We tested the responsiveness of the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress by placing a 20-pound ball on the mattress and waiting for a few seconds for the ball to sink in. Then, we removed the ball and measured how long it took for the mattress to fully recover its shape.
The mattress fully recovered in about 0.9 seconds, which is an above-average score. This means that the mattress is able to quickly return to its original shape after you apply pressure to it. This is important for people who move around a lot in their sleep, as it will help prevent them from feeling stuck in place.
However, the mattress still has this memory foam feel that "remembers" your sleeping position. But it is still responsive enough to allow you to move around comfortably without feeling stuck in place. We rated the BedInABox Original Hybrid a 4.5/5 regarding responsiveness.
Motion isolation is the ability of a mattress to prevent motion from one person to another. This is important for couples who share a bed, as it can help to ensure that neither person is disturbed by the other's movements.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has a layer of pocketed coils that are individually wrapped. This means that the coils are able to move independently, which helps prevent motion from rippling across the surface of the mattress.
We tested the motion isolation of the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress by conducting a simple experiment. We placed a glass half full of water on top of the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the other side. The water barely sloshed on the mattress, indicating that the mattress has good motion isolation.
To get a better sense of the mattress's motion isolation, we had our partner lie on one side while we rolled around on the other. They felt some movement, but it was not enough to disturb them.
However, the mattress is not the best for motion isolation. If you or your partner are heavy sleepers, you may still feel some movement from the other person's movements, but not to the extent that it will wake you up. So, we gave the mattress a 4/5 for its motion isolation.
Edge support is the ability of a mattress to maintain its shape and support even when you are sleeping near the edge. This is important for people who like to sleep near the edge of the bed or who share a bed with a partner.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has good edge support. The pocketed coils are individually wrapped, which helps prevent the mattress from collapsing at the edges. The gel memory foam also helps to provide support at the edges.
We tested the edge support of the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress by sitting on the edge of the mattress. We did not feel any sense of the mattress collapsing or sinking. We also did not feel any of the coils poking through the mattress.
We also applied firm pressure to the edges with our hands. The mattress did not spring back as quickly as some other mattresses, and we were able to push more into it before feeling any counterpressure.
Overall, the mattress has good edge support. This means that you should be able to sit or sleep on the edge of the mattress without feeling like you are going to roll off. However, it is not the best mattress we have reviewed for edge support.
We gave the mattress a 4.5/5 for its edge support.
Noise isolation is the ability of a mattress to prevent noise from traveling through it. This is important for people who share a bed with a partner.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has good noise isolation. The pocketed coils are individually wrapped, which helps prevent noise from traveling through the mattress. The gel memory foam also helps to absorb noise.
We tested the noise isolation of the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress by dropping a 20-pound ball on the mattress and listening for any squeaking with our sensitive microphones. The test showed that this mattress was silent; we did not hear any significant noise.
Therefore, we gave the mattress a 5/5 regarding noise isolation.
A mattress that is ideal for sex should be comfortable, and supportive, have good edge support, be cool, and be quiet. The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress meets all of these criteria, making it a good choice for couples who want to have a satisfying and enjoyable sex life.
Based on our tests above, we gave the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress a 4.7/5 rating for sex performance.
Pressure relief is important in a mattress because it helps reduce pain and discomfort. When you sleep, your body weight is distributed unevenly across the mattress. This can cause pressure points to form on your body, especially in areas where there is more weight, such as your shoulders, hips, and lower back. A mattress that provides good pressure relief will help distribute your body weight more evenly, which can reduce pain and discomfort.
The BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress has good pressure relief. The pocketed coils are individually wrapped, which helps the mattress conform to the shape of your body and distribute your weight evenly. The gel memory foam also helps to provide pressure relief by conforming to the shape of your body and absorbing pressure.
We conducted a pressure relief test on the BedInABox Original Hybrid mattress. We used a pressure mapping system to measure the pressure at different points on the mattress.
As you can see from the pressure map, the mattress does an exceptional job of relieving pressure, especially on the hips and shoulders. This is good news for side sleepers, who are more likely to experience pressure points in these areas. While there is some green showing up on the map when sleeping on the stomach and back, this is still considered okay. Overall, you should be able to sleep pain-free on this mattress, which is why we gave it a 4.8 out of 5 rating.
