The Alexander Hybrid is the most asked about mattress from Nest Bedding, so I was excited to give it a try and see what the fuss is about. The mattress overall does deliver on comfort and support, but I had some complaints as well (see how it compares HERE).
Read on for my full Alexander Hybrid mattress review.
The Alexander Hybrid has a unique feel since it has both pocket coils and foam. Overall the mattress feels more like a foam mattress than an innerspring mattress (some hybrids are the opposite).
The firmness is average (and there is only one option), I’d say a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. As you can see in the video above, the mattress regains shape fairly quickly for a foam mattress, certainly faster than a pure memory foam mattress.
The mattress has both foam and pocket coils, so as expected it performs very well in the motion transfer test. If you sleep with a partner that likes to toss and turn throughout the night, this may be a good mattress option for you.
Also relevant, this mattress has pocket coils around the perimeter, giving it much better edge support than the average foam mattress. This makes the mattress feel bigger (you can sleep closer to the edge comfortably), making it an even better mattress for couples.
The points that stand out in construction is the copper-infused memory foam (which aims to help with cooling) and the pocket coil/foam combination. The exact construction consists of:
Add that up and you get 13 inches total of mattress. The mattress also has additional edge-support pocket coils to improve edge support.
Overall I really liked the Alexander Hybrid mattress, I definitely put it as my favorite mattress from Nest Bedding due to the comfort/support tradeoff (see my full list of mattress reviews). I think it could potentially work for any sleeping position as well, which is a unique find.
