Pressure Test Results

Using models from our front office we've pressure tested the Hybrid 1200 Plush mattress by having them lay on the bed in a side sleeper and back sleeper position (Learn how we test). Our models (or Aaron, Rich & Joe as we call them!) represent the vast majority of people's sizes, petite, average, and large-sized bodies.

This mattress tested very well for most of the body types and sleep positions with it earning a 'recommended' score for five of the six combinations.  With most plush mattresses we expect to see some increase in pressure on the joints in the large-sized bodies which you can see represented on the image below by the red areas. 

Red areas indicate there's too much pressure on that particular joint which will cause discomfort leading to pain leading to tossing and turning for a fitful night's sleep. The green and light blue areas show the proper amount of support and accurate pressure relief.  The yellower areas just show an increase in pressure though it's not enough to cause unpleasantness in the support or pressure relief of the mattress. 

This bed provides really good support for your lower back and side support areas depending on your sleeping position.  Good spinal support is paramount to a restful night because a lack of support will cause tightness and pain in your lower back.  Pressure relief is just as integral to a quality night's sleep because an excess of pressure will lead to tossing and turning thereby disturbing your sleep throughout the night.  The Hybrid 1200 Plush demonstrated excellent support and pressure relief for most body types, please consider these test results in your decision-making:

The Main Ashley Sierra Sleep Hybrid 1200 Plush Features in Detail

Show the layers of this mattress and labels each one in the same order as we list below this image. You see the gray cover, a blue foam layer, a white foam layer, and then the layer of coils which are each wrapped in white fabric.

  1. 1. 2" High-Density Gel Memory Foam 

    This memory foam relieves pressure points by conforming to your body's unique curves.  When there is too much pressure on your joints while you sleep you tend to toss and turn.

  2. 2. 2" High-Density Cushion Firm Foam

    Cushion firm foam also conforms to your body while also giving you sturdy support throughout the night.  This foam can help you get a better night's sleep by cushioning pressure points and giving you a softer feeling throughout the night. 

  3. 4. Power-Packed Wrapped Coils

    An 8” Power Packed Wrapped Coil System works to support the individual curves of your body.  These coils get compressed down before they are wrapped which helps them provide a more consistent and supportive feeling. 

Comfort Depth Video

Conclusion

The Sierra Sleep Hybrid 1200 Plush Mattress is a medium-soft feeling mattress from Ashley. The combination of a 2" layer of gel memory foam with individually wrapped coils and an additional 2" of cushion firm foam creates a plush and comfortable feeling mattress. It also demonstrated that it's excellent at relieving pressure and providing conforming support during our pressure testing phase of this review. 

Hybrid models are popular because you get the best of both worlds; a supportive innerspring system, and contouring gel memory foam. This hybrid model from Ashley Mattress is one of the best in the Sierra Sleep collection because you get the plush and contouring effects of memory foam while the coil system supports your body's curves.  This is what hybrids have become so famous for, memory foam combined with an innerspring system. 

The Hybrid 1200 Plush mattress is an excellent choice if you're looking for the comfort of a hybrid while not wanting to pay too much. This model is fairly inexpensive, which increases the value of this bed when considering all its premium materials. 

Other leading competitor models with similar features sell for much more which demonstrates this bed’s value for the money. You really can't go wrong with this mattress when considering the low price and great value, including gel memory foam.  I do recommend this mattress to all people who want a plush hybrid mattress and live on a budget just like me!
