What material is Emma Hybrid Mattress made of?
Emma Hybrid Mattress is made of high-quality materials and fabrics that have stood the test of time, while modern technologies and innovations bring it to life. Strict quality controls guarantee excellent quality. Unlike the Premium mattress, the Hybrid mattress offers more comfort thanks to its foam core and micro coil technology.
The core of the Emma Hybrid Mattress is made of Supportive HRX cold foam. HRX stands for High Resiliency Extra. This layer is designed to prevent spinal misalignments and provide you with optimal comfort, rest and relaxation in any lying position. Learn more about What is polyurethane foam? Properties and advantages.
Pressure-relieving viscoelastic memory foam
We’ve always said that the perfect night’s sleep isn’t rocket science – but in this case it is. Developed by astrophysicists, this adaptable layer works with Airgocell® to relieve pressure and reduce motion transfer for out-of-this-world comfort.
On the memory foam there is a layer of micro coils for better body support. 2cm. high, very breathable and comfortable layer, which combines both foam and pocket spring systems.
Airgocell® Memory Foam
On the spring pack there is a layer of Airgocell® Memory Foam, which increases comfort and significantly reduces the load on muscles and joints during sleep.
Point Elastic Airgocell® is the layer that provides good air circulation and allows the mattress to breathe. Thanks to this layer, the mattress does not feel hot.
Our groundbreaking Point Elastic Airgocell® technology enhances breathability and regulates temperature by absorbing and then evaporating sweat – so rising temperatures won’t have you disturb your nights.
The Emma Hybrid Mattress is covered with Emma UltraDry Premium Cover. The award-winning Emma UltraDry breathable cover is both refreshing and practical. This temperature-regulating cover is moisture-wicking, easily removable, and washable.
How firm is Emma Hybrid Mattress?
Like the rest of the manufacturer’s models, the Hybrid is defined as a medium-firm mattress. This model is more in the range of 6.5 out of 10, where 10 is a very firm mattress
How does it feel?
After testing the Emma Hybrid Mattress, we can safely say that overall it’s a pretty comfortable mattress. You don’t find that ‘bounce’ effect with it, like you do with other hybrid mattresses. If you miss that, you can opt for the Emma Premium. One minus point is the lack of support in the hip area, so it probably won’t be the first choice for back and stomach sleepers. However, we have good news for heat sleepers, because the mattress can regulate the temperature well during sleep.
Is it suitable for any bed?
According to the manufacturer, the Emma Hybrid Mattress is suitable for any bed base, but it is recommended to use a slatted frame with a distance of 7.5 cm between the slats. Also, keep in mind that a base can slightly change the feel of the mattress. In our tests, we have found that the mattress feels slightly different and supports slightly differently on different bed frames. When the mattress is on a slatted frame, it feels more comfortable, while on a solid base, you feel like you are better supported.
Does it have a removable cover?
One of the advantages we highlighted in our review of the Emma Hybrid Mattress is its removable cover. The cover can be replaced effortlessly and regular washing will keep your bed hygienic. It’s a good idea to use a mattress protector as well, as it can extend the life of your new mattress. Here are 8 tips on how to keep your mattress clean.
Does it have a home test period?
The manufacturer is so confident of its materials and the comfort of its mattress that it offers a 200-night trial period. This way you can find out for yourself in the comfort of your own home if it’s right for you, and if not, all you have to do is fill out the return form and Emma will take care of the rest, at no cost to you.

Is it suitable for couples?
The motion isolation on this mattress is amazing. During our tests we found that no movement was felt, even when there was a big difference in the weight of the partners.
Is it suitable for children? Emma Hybrid Mattress Review

Verdict for Emma Hybrid Mattress.
Having slept on the Emma Hybrid Mattress enough times, we can safely say that the manufacturer has not disappointed with this latest model and remains true to the high quality it offers. The mattress feels just perfect for side sleepers and hot sleepers. Thanks to the edge support and motion isolation, it is also suitable for couples, even with a big weight difference. The downside is that the mattress is not very suitable for heavier back and stomach sleepers due to the lack of support in the hip area. For them we would recommend the Emma Premium or Original mattress.
