The Alexander Hybrid mattress is the most raved about mattress from Nest Bedding. Nest Bedding is a well-known regional store that sells directly to the customers. Since, there is no additional cost of middle men, this mattress is more on an affordable side. It’s a perfect blend of copper infused foam and pocketed coils. While the pocketed coils provide bounce to the mattress, the copper infused foam makes sure that you never sleep hot in this bed. If you want the comfort of a memory foam with the bounce and edge support of an innerspring, then this might just be the perfect mattress for you. It offers three firmness options for different sleepers i.e. Plush, Medium and Luxury Firm.
It comes with 4 layers that stacks up to 13 inches of comfort.
The first layer is a comfort layer of 2 inches quilted cover that has a density of 1.5 lbs. It is designed to provide relief to the pressure points.
The second layer is a 2 inches of gel memory foam. This is infused with coil which lures away the body heat and maintains the surface temperature of the mattress.
The third layer is a support layer made up of 2 inches of SmartFlow foam. In addition to providing support, this also makes sure that the mattress remains cooler through out the night.
The final layer is a base layer made up of 7 inches of pocketed coils. This acts as a foundation for the rest of the layers. Pocketed coils provide bounce as well as motion isolation to the mattress.
Firmness of a mattress is subjective. It highly depends upon the weight distribution of an individual as well as their personal preference of firmness. Some people will find a mattress too soft while others will find the same mattress to be medium soft. According to Nest Bedding, the Plush model ranges between 7 to 7.5 on the firmness scale (10 being the softest). People who like the feeling of sinking into their mattress will enjoy this mattress. Then the Medium one ranges from 5 to 5.5 on firmness scale which is quite good for people who like medium soft mattresses. The third one which is The Luxury Firm ranges between 2 to 2.5. This one provides more support and pressure relief and is great for people who sleep on their back.
If you plan to share your bed with your partner, then you would want to know about how good this mattress is as containing motion. This is not exceptionally good at containing motion but having said that, it is definitely better than traditional innerspring mattresses. You will not be bothered by your partner’s movements unless they move excessively while sleeping. The 7 inches of pocketed coil layer contains light motions pretty well. This also provides bounce to the mattress which is preferred by couples as it provides extra support.
If you’re sharing your mattress with someone, you would want to use the surface area to it’s maximum. This mattress provides you enough edge support so that you can use full surface area. Unlike many other mattresses, you don’t have to be afraid of rolling out of the bed in the middle of the night. You’ll be perfectly comfortable even if you sleep towards the very sides of the mattress.
