Eve Hybrid Mattress Review UK (2024)

Last updated: 28.03.2024 Reading time: 8 Min.

Should you get a spring mattress or a foam mattress?

It's a tough choice - but also the exact reason hybrid mattresses are so great!

The Eve Hybrid - now rebranded as the Wunderflip Hybrid - is the original hybrid mattress by Eve Sleep, a UK-based company.

But how does this mattress measure up to the brand's flagship model?

And is it a good buy?

We'll tell you all in this Eve Hybrid mattress review. 👇


  • Incredibly well-priced mattress.
  • Suitable for a wide variety of sleepers - and even supportive enough for back and front sleepers.
  • Very breathable and temperature-neutral mattress.
  • Excellent motion isolation, making it a great choice for couples.
  • Free delivery and returns within mainland UK.
  • 200-night trial period.
  • 10-year guarantee.


  • May be too firm for lighter-weight side sleepers.
  • Quite a heavy mattress, which makes it difficult to handle.

Who is the Eve Hybrid mattress suitable for?

  • Back and front sleepers who need a medium-firm or firm mattress
  • Average-weight or heavier-weight side sleepers
  • People who feel a little warmer at night
  • Couples or restless sleepers
  • People with hygiene concerns
  • Those looking for a good hybrid mattress at an affordable price

Eve Wunderflip Hybrid composition

The Eve Hybrid is a pocket-sprung memory foam mattress that combines multiple layers of foam with full-sized pocket springs.


The layers of the Eve Original Hybrid are:

  • Quilted fabric cover
  • Pressure-relieving memory foam layer
  • Dual spring system
  • Reinforced edge support
  • Firmer Wunderflip layer
  • Reactive pocket spring system
  • Softer Wunderflip layer
  • Base layer

The Eve Wunderflip Hybrid acts as the pocket-sprung counterpart to the Eve Wunderflip, the best-selling memory foam mattress by Eve Sleep.

Below, we'll look at the mattress layers and cover in more detail:

Eve Wunderflip Hybrid mattress cover

The top cover of the Eve Hybrid is made of a deep quilted fabric treated with Purotex+ [1], a unique 100% natural treatment that's been designed to reduce dust mites and bacteria.

The Eve Hybrid mattress cover can be zipped off and machine-washed at 40°, though we'd still highly recommend using a waterproof mattress protector to safeguard your mattress further.

Even though the Eve Hybrid is a no-flip mattress, you should still rotate it regularly at 180° to get the most out of it.

To make this a little easier, Eve Sleep UK has placed grips on the lower side of the mattress. 👌

Moving the mattress may still be a little challenging as it is quite heavy (32.3 kg / 71 lbs for the standard double), but not impossible.

Memory foam layer

Eve Sleep uses memory foam with an open-cell structure, which makes it up to five times more breathable than standard memory foam.

But you'll still get the same body-contouring feel you may be used to from memory foam products.

Dual spring system

The Eve Wunderflip Hybrid features a dual spring system with 850 extra micro pocket springs in addition to the main spring layer.

This allows for enhanced stability and support.

2x reinforced edge support

There are actually two layers of reinforced edge support within the Eve Wunderflip Hybrid mattress.

Edge support is designed to add extra stability to the perimeter of the mattress so you can enjoy its full width without feeling like you're falling off the sides.

Wunderflip firmer foam layer

If you prefer a firmer mattress feel, you can choose to have the Wunderflip firmer foam layer as your primary one.

Wunderflip medium-firm foam layer

If you prefer a more medium-firm feel, you can choose to have the Wunderflip medium foam layer as your primary one.

Reactive spring system

At its core, the Eve Hybrid features 1,000 full-height pocket springs that are slightly softer at one end and firmer at the other, allowing you to experience a firmer or softer mattress feel.

The springs are enclosed in breathable fabric pockets that hinder motion transfer and keep you better supported if you're sharing your bed with a partner.

Eve Original Hybrid mattress firmness

The Eve Original Hybrid was always classified as a mattress with a medium-firm feel but the revamped Eve Wunderflip Hybrid gives you two options:

  • A firmer side
  • A medium side

Depending on which you prefer, you can simply flip the mattress over - simply zip off the top comfort layer and attach it to the other side, and you're good to go.


How comfortable is the Eve Wunderflip Hybrid?

The Eve Hybrid is a very comfortable mattress with great support.

Does the Eve Hybrid offer good support?

The mattress has been designed to be comfortable and supportive no matter which sleeping position you prefer. 🥳

But, as a slightly firmer and more supportive model, we think it's best suited to back sleepers and front sleepers who benefit from a touch more support.

Eve Original Hybrid mattress
This Eve mattress is great for back and front sleepers.

Back and stomach sleepers need a little more lift in the pelvic area to prevent the hips from sinking too deeply into the mattress.

The Eve Hybrid provides this extra lift, ensuring that these sleepers stay in an optimally aligned position and won't wake up with back pain.

Is the Eve Hybrid good for side sleepers?

Side sleepers won't be uncomfortable either, though, as the cushioning in the hip and shoulder areas allows for more comfort and pressure relief.


Generally, side sleepers need to sink into the foams a little more deeply, especially in the hip and shoulder regions.

Optimal spinal alignment

This is necessary to allow for optimal spinal alignment and ensure you wake up tension-free. 🦴

The Eve Hybrid mattress gives good side support for most sleepers, though it may be a little too firm for very lightweight side sleepers, even on the medium side.

​If this is you, you could always make use of a mattress topper for more comfort.

Mattress toppers are 4 - 10 cm thick pads of extra material that provide comfort and cushioning to a firmer mattress.

We recommend some of our favourites below. 👇

Mattress topper recommendations:

Temperature-neutral sleep

Memory foam generally retains more heat than other types of foam, making you easily feel too hot and clammy. 🥵

Temperature regulation scale

But the foams used in the Eve Wunderflip Hybrid are 5x more breathable than traditional memory foam, allowing for enhanced airflow and creating a cooler feel.

This Eve Sleep mattress also relies on its hybrid nature for enhanced breathability.

Springs are naturally more breathable, as the spaces between the springs create ventilation channels.


This allows air to flow more freely. 💨

air circulation in pocket sprung mattress
Mattresses with pocket springs allow for enhanced air circulation.

By combining foam with springs, the Eve Hybrid creates a balanced feel.

Great choice for couples

Memory foam isolates movements quite effectively, resulting in low motion transfer.


This means that you won't be able to feel your partner tossing and turning at night - resulting in a peaceful sleep for both!

Motion transfer
A mattress with good motion isolation will allow you to sleep peacefully.

Memory foam can sometimes be a bit more difficult to move on due to its characteristic memory imprint.

But the Eve Hybrid counteracts this quite effectively, and it's not at all too difficult to move around on the foams. 💃

This makes the original Hybrid a great mattress for couples.

Eve Hybrid sizes

The Eve Wunderflip Hybrid mattress is available in all the standard UK mattress sizes. 🇬🇧

  • Eve Hybrid single mattresses: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Eve Hybrid double mattresses: 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)
  • Eve Hybrid king-size mattresses: 150 x 200 cm (5’ x 6’6”)
  • Eve Hybrid super-king-size mattresses: 180 x 200 cm (6’ x 6’6”)

We'd recommend couples choose a double mattress as the smallest possible size.

This will ensure that both partners have a bit more room to move on.

How thick is the Eve Wunderflip Hybrid mattress?

All Eve Hybrid mattresses have a height of 25 cm (9.8 inches).


This is on par with most bed-in-a-box mattresses, meaning that the mattress should look good on most bed frames and you shouldn't have any trouble finding suitable bedding.

Eve Wunderflip Hybrid prices

The Eve Hybrid is an exceptionally well-priced mattress that comes in quite a bit cheaper than comparable mattresses like the Hypnia Hybrid, Nectar Hybrid, or the Otty Hybrid (if there are no promotions running).


It even compares favourably to other all-foam options like the Emma Original and Nectar memory foam mattress. 👌

This is great news, as hybrid mattresses are usually a tad more expensive than foam mattresses.

Eve Hybrid delivery conditions

Like all bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Eve Hybrid mattress is delivered vacuum-sealed in a compact box that’s small enough to fit through any narrow passageway. 📦

Delivery is free of charge within mainland UK.

You can expect delivery in under a week.

Two-man delivery service
Eve Sleep offers a two-man delivery service for heavier mattresses.

Conveniently, Eve offers free room-of-choice delivery, ensuring you won't be stranded with a heavy mattress and no way to carry it.


Eve Sleep used to offer a Deliver, Remove and Recycle service where they removed your old mattress when they delivered the new one, but this service is currently not available.

How do you unpack the Eve Hybrid mattress?

Unpacking the Eve Original Hybrid mattress couldn't be easier:

  • Slide it out of the box and place it on your bed base.
  • Cut open the plastic wrapping.
  • Unroll the mattress.
  • Wait for it to expand - this can take 30 minutes or up to 4 - 5 hours. ⏰

Your mattress is ready to be enjoyed as soon as it's expanded to its full size.

Keep in mind that the mattress can be quite heavy, so you may need to ask a friend or family member to help you unpack the mattress.

Eve Hybrid mattress risk-free trial period

All Eve Sleep UK mattresses come with a 200-night trial period.

This gives you the chance to try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home.

It can take a few weeks for the body to get used to a new mattress, so this trial period is great to help you decide if the mattress is right for you.
