Eve Hybrid mattress layers
1. Top layer of Evecomfort foam
This trademarked springy foam helps keep your spine aligned and offers great breathability. 💨
2. Memory foam layer
This comfort layer of memory foam provides softness and comfort.
It adapts perfectly to your body and helps relieve pressure points. 🤗
3. Support layer
This foam layer acts as a transitional layer before you get to the pocket springs.
4. Pocket spring layer
This layer includes an average of 800 12 cm (4.7 inches) full-sized pocket springs that are individually wrapped in fabric pockets.
The exact number of springs depends on the size of the mattress.
These springs respond perfectly to your body’s movements and relieve pressure from your hips and shoulders.
5. Base layer
The 7-zoned base foam layer provides additional support.
The contour zones also allow for more sinkage in some areas and more support in others, enabling optimal spinal alignment in any sleeping position.
How comfortable is the Eve Original Hybrid?
The Eve Original Hybrid is a very comfortable mattress that's been rated as one of the best mattresses on the market in the UK.
The pocket springs relieve pressure well and adapt optimally to your body.
Support for back & front sleepers
The mattress has been designed to be comfortable and supportive no matter which sleeping position you prefer. 🥳
Back and stomach sleepers need a little more lift in the pelvic area to prevent the hips from sinking into the mattress too much.
The Eve Original Hybrid provides this extra lift, ensuring that these sleepers stay in an optimally-aligned position and won't wake up with back pain.
Comfort 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.
This is necessary to allow for optimal spinal alignment and ensure you wake up tension-free. 🦴
Mattress toppers for more comfort
The Eve Original Hybrid does generally offer enough sinkage - though it may be a little too firm for very light-weight side sleepers.
If this is you, you could always make use of a mattress topper for more comfort.
Mattress toppers are 4 - 10 cm pads of extra material that provide comfort and cushioning to a firmer mattress.
We're obsessed with the Panda memory foam topper, but the Simba topper is also a great option. 👇
Mattress topper recommendations:
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!
Memory foam can sometimes be a bit more difficult to move on due to its characteristic memory imprint.
But the Eve Original 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.
