We use the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress to alleviate pain at pressure points and for support. It moulds very well to the shape of your body, so the support is better than the average mattress can provide.
Let’s focus on the features that have the biggest impact on the performance of this specific Dormeo mattress, such as individually placed pocket springs and pressure relieving memory foam.
Spring mattresses have been available on the market for a very long time because they are durable and supportive. But in recent years they have been significantly improved by being individually created and placed in their own fabric pockets, each separately. Dormeo Options mattress also features upgraded individually wrapped pocket springs, and we will explain to you exactly what the difference is compared to the springs that were once used.
Since each spring is made separately and wrapped separately, one does not affect the other, but each moves independently. This way you get restful and supportive sleep, and also motion isolation is great because the movements of your partner are not transferred to you.
Whether you are a hot sleeper or not, you can’t sleep comfortably when you are too hot and when you sweat all night long. That’s why Airmesh sides have been implemented enhancing constant air circulation so optimum breathability is achieved to prevent overheating.
Side air vents provide efficient air circulation and thus make the sleeping environment cool, dry and without dust mites. Increasingly, we encounter Airmesh sides/walls on mattresses and pillows, so we expect this to become an industry standard because it has brought a huge improvement in the field of breathability.
It is very irritating when the mattress does not stand firmly on the bed frame. It can even wake you up during the night because you will feel instability as if you are sleeping on a train and not in your bed. That is why a non-slip base has been implemented on this mattress, which is made of a unique non-slip material, so the mattress will always stand in its place, no matter how much you toss and turn during sleep.
Ecocell foam is a next-generation type of foam that has a 3-dimensional cellular structure, to make breathability excellent. Also, it is permanently elastic and durable, so it will not lose its characteristics even after several years of use. Ecocell foam provides sheer luxurious support for the whole body.
We already mentioned firmness at the beginning of our review, but it is one of the most important features of all mattresses and pillows, so it deserves to be talked about in more detail. On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress is around 7, maybe even 7.5 which depends on your body weight but also preferences.
This places it among the medium to firm mattresses that are suitable for stomach and back sleepers, and it is too firm for most side sleepers. This mattress is certainly not too firm, so you don’t have to worry about it, it is comfortable as well.
Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress is an average thick hybrid mattress. It is 23 cm thick, which is perhaps a little below average for hybrid mattresses, which are usually thicker than the other types, but this is certainly not a classic hybrid mattress.
Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress is 23 cm thick and suitable for front and back sleepers.
The primary reason why it is suitable for those two sleep positions, but not for side sleeping, is firmness since it is firmer than most medium-firm mattresses. Therefore, it will provide ideal support for hips and shoulders if you sleep on your stomach or back and thus enable spinal alignment.
Individual pocket springs give unique support because each spring works independently. If you do not sleep alone, it will also be very important to you because you will have the impression that you are sleeping alone due to excellent motion isolation.
It is good for hot sleepers since Airmesh walls will supply you with fresh air always.
The foam layer will mould around your body and make you very comfortable sleeping. The cover is not removable, so it is advisable to use bedding. Also, it's hypoallergenic.
Free delivery is included, and our biggest complaint is the all-too-short warranty period – just 1 year.
There aren't many problems with Dormeo Options Hybrid mattresses, but here are a few things that might occur:
Silentnight 3-Zone Foam mattress and Happy Beds Signature 2000 mattress are two alternatives to the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress that we reviewed.
Both Silentnight 3-Zone Foam and Dormeo Options Hybrid are advertised as medium-firm mattresses but are at different ends.
Silentnight 3-Zone Foam mattress is a medium/soft mattress that is ideal for side sleepers, and also suitable for back sleepers, while stomach sleepers may sink too much.
If pressure relief is very important to you, this is one of the best mattresses for that purpose. It’s a great choice for couples too. It is hypoallergenic and it is handmade in the UK.
This is a medium-thick version of the three available. It is 18 cm thick while the Comfortable Memory foam mattress is 14 cm thick, and 7-Zone mattress is 20 cm thick.
Happy Beds Signature 2000 mattress is similar in firmness to the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress, so if you sleep on your back or stomach, you will be comfortable on it.
It is made of high-quality materials and the craftsmanship is also at a high level. It is also hand-tufted which contributes to this being a highly durable mattress. It is 33 cm deep, which is well above average.
Pocket springs absorb movement and provide uninterrupted sleep. It is filled with lamb wool, luxury silk and cashmere which is fantastic, but one problem is that it is as consequence not suitable for allergy sufferers.
Since you decided to buy an Options mattress, we assumed that you might also want a pillow that brings another material to the table – latex. Silentnight Latex Core pillow as its name suggests has a latex core over which is a soft and breathable hollowfibre layer.
It is encased in a non-removable cotton cover with Airmesh walls, enhancing constant air circulation. It comes with a 2-year warranty.
This is the perfect choice to go with if you are buying a Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress so we suggest you check out our Latex core pillow review by Silentnight.
Dormeo is a company that has established itself on the UK market as one of the best mattress manufacturers, and Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress is no exception.
It is a high-quality mattress, which provides pressure relief and support and is highly breathable.
Also, we really like the addition of Airmesh sides that allow unobstructed air circulation.
Although it is not something you will notice first when you buy this mattress, the non-slip base will make your sleep even more pleasant. All this together makes the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress better than some other similar ones.
The method we use to evaluate products is very straightforward, but also very well thought-out. We read up on customer experiences and evaluations, analyse product materials, and, of course, test the actual real-world performance.
And here's how we do it.
To make things more transparent, here's how we test the longevity and durability of a mattress:
Since Dormeo isn't very vocal about its sustainability efforts, we have no option but to just analyse the mattress at hand. First, the entire mattress can be repurposed and recycled – which is a good thing. However, we have a cotton cover, and we all know cotton is notorious for its water usage. So, in that aspect, we would like to see some improvements. Overall, we can't really call this one neither eco-friendly nor sustainable, but then again – we can't claim otherwise either. It's somewhere in the middle.
After everything is said and done, we can say that we are pleased with the Dormeo Options Hybrid mattress. It is a well-made product that should last for multiple years with proper care. The only downside is that it is not suitable for everyone, but that's the case with most products, especially at this price point.
Our overall grade – 7 out of 10.
We believe that in this extensive review we gave you answers to almost all important questions, but if we missed something, there is a FAQs section for the end, where we will answer a few more questions.
It comes with 1 year quality warranty but be aware if you fail to open packaging within 30 days of acceptance that may invalidate the warranty.
No, you won’t pay the delivery fee for Dormeo Hybrid Latex mattress, since delivery is free for Dormeo mattresses and beds.
We find it generally too firm for side sleepers, especially side sleepers with lower BMI, while some heavier side sleepers may find it comfortable.
Yes, back sleepers should sleep on Dormeo Hybrid Latex mattress.
Dormeo Hybrid Latex mattress is great for stomach sleepers, firm enough, but still very comfortable and pressure relieving.
Pressure relief is one of the main characteristics of this mattress, so we think it will be suitable for people with hip, neck and back pain.
