Type of Construction

Serta iComfort Hybrid mattresses are made with a combination of gel memory foam and traditional innersprings. Many people like hybrid mattresses because they offer the conforming feeling of memory foam with the support that comes from an innerspring.

Serta iComfort Hybrid - An Overview

iComfort Hybrid mattresses are made with gel-memory foam providing the conforming layers on top. Those layers then rest on top of traditional design innersprings. The hybrid design became popular shortly after memory foam mattresses came on the scene. Many people like memory foam mattresses because of the way they conform to your body’s curves. But the flip side is that they can leave you feeling as if you're sinking or stuck in the memory foam. Innerspring support underneath the foam takes care of that problem, so you get the best of both worlds; conforming memory foam on top and springy support underneath.

Serta iComfort Hybrids vary in features and prices but there are two key elements in every model. Every mattress includes TempActiv Gel Memory Foam, which is Serta’s most recent advancement in gel memory foam. TempActiv foam is infused with millions of gel beads that help improve the way it conforms to your body and control heat. Secondly, every model has the Serta Hybrid Coil Support System which is a variable response coil design that’s soft at first touch and gets firmer with more weight.

There are additional foam layers and materials depending on the model.

Serta iComfort Hybrid Mattresses

We’ve bought, inspected and tested each and every iComfort Hybrid mattress using our unique pressure mapping system. We combined those results with our analysis of how these features compare to industry standards. We then pressure test petite, average and large body sizes in both the back and side sleeping positions. The data is then analyzed and compared to all the other mattresses.

Key iComfort Hybrid Mattress Features

Cool to the touch CoverCool to the touch Cover

TempActiv Touch Fabric is a cool-to-the-touch fabric on Hybrid Blue Fusion models 1000 or higher. This attractive mattress cover feels cool when you touch it because temperature-regulating technology has been infused into it. It works in combination with the TempActiv Gel Memory foam to dissipate heat out and away.

TempActive Gel Memory FoamTempActive Gel Memory Foam

There are millions of gel beads in the TempActiv foam. They act to trap and help dissipate the excess heat generated by your body. The TempActiv Gel Memory Foam helps keep your sleeping environment cooler, so you sleep better.

Serta Hybrid Coil Support SystemSerta Hybrid Coil Support System

Your body gets proper support resting on the Hybrid Coil Support System. The key factor is the 3-stage coil design in the pocketed coils. The coil feels soft in the beginning when weight is first put on the coil. Then, as more weight is added, the coil becomes firmer for increasing support. So the mattress is soft where you want it while giving your body support where it’s needed.

Delivery Method

Serta iComfort Hybrid mattresses are available in many stores and online. They’re big and heavy mattresses so they’re usually delivered by retailer delivery teams. In-home delivery is free, and so is the removal of your old mattress. These mattresses also come with an in-home trial!

More about Serta

Serta is one of America’s oldest, largest and most trusted mattress brands. Serta launched its iconic Perfect Sleeper brand in 1931. Today Serta is the largest mattress brand in the United States. It’s a part of the Serta Simmons Bedding company which operates 36 American factories. They also have a broad international presence.

There are hundreds of mattress brands available in stores and online. But most of them are just marketing and reselling beds produced by others. Serta actually is a manufacturer, designing and producing its own mattresses. They leverage their lengthy experience and large size to drive innovation and bring high-quality beds to market.

Serta has sold tens of millions of mattresses while maintaining a high-quality track record and level of sales success. And they have many loyal repeat customers. On the internet, there are review sites that gather and present what they purport to be ratings. However, they have a limited number of reviews. They don't fully reflect the experience of the millions of satisfied owners.

Conclusion

Serta iComfort Hybrid mattresses became popular very quickly because they have premium features and people sleep comfortably on them.

All the mattresses include TempActiv gel memory foam enhancing conforming support and temperature control. The 3-stage pocketed coil innerspring design delivers the right support to all body sizes because of its variable tension design. It’s soft where you like it and firmer where you need the most support.

These beds passed our tests with nearly universal flying colors! It was pretty amazing to see so many of the models generate such strong results. They all did a good job minimizing pressure points and supporting important areas like your lower back. The only one standing out in a bad way is the 500 Extra Firm. And that’s easy to understand since the mattress has such a firm design. In fact, it’s meant for people that really like a firm mattress (your own preference overrides any test result).

Since all of the models tested so well, you can focus on finding the model that’s best for you. Narrow down the selection to your preferred comfort, features & price and you will arrive at a mattress that’s a good one. We highly recommend the Serta Hybrid mattresses.
