Otty mattress composition

The Otty Original Hybrid mattress is a 4-layer hybrid mattress that combines the unique properties of an innerspring mattress with a top layer of memory foam.


otty mattress layers
The Otty mattress has a hybrid construction.

It contains 64% springs and 36% foam.

The 4 layers:

  • Temperature-regulating memory foam
  • High-density support foam
  • 16 cm (6.2") pocket springs
  • HD base foam

But what does all of this mean?

Temperature-regulating memory foam (3 cm / 1.18")

The first layer of the Otty Hybrid is a layer of memory foam with cooling properties.

The innovative Otty Hybrid Cool Blue Gel memory foam has been designed to enhance breathability, allowing for a cooler sleep. ❄️

Otty gel foam
The Otty mattress includes cooling gel foam.

The cooling gel foam also has additional pin holes for airflow.

This allows excess heat to flow out of the mattress and cool air to draw in.


High-density foam (3 cm / 1.18")

Specially designed Reflex Foam provides comfort, stability, and support.

This supportive sleeping surface prevents you from feeling the innerspring layer underneath.

Up to 2000 pocket springs

The Otty mattress relies on up to 2000 pocket springs (depending on the mattress’s size) to maximise support and minimise motion transfer. 🚣

The Otty Hybrid has 16 cm (6.2") full-size pocket springs instead of mini springs for a more quality experience.

This is also the prime reason for the mattress’s premium stability and medium-firm rating.


5 cm HD base foam

The base layer of the Otty mattress provides a solid foundation that enhances stability and gives the mattress its durability, enabling it to be enjoyed for a long time.

The base foam layer acts like the "bones" of the mattress, keeping everything stable and preventing sagging over time.

Side support panels

In addition to the mattress’s 4 layers, the Otty Hybrid also features airflow side support panels. 🌬️

These encourage enhanced temperature regulation and provide a more stable sleeping surface with edge-to-edge support.


Otty mattress comfort

Of course, there’s no point in investing in a new mattress if it’s not comfortable.

So what do we think of the Otty Hybrid mattress? 👇

Pressure relief

The Otty Hybrid mattress has a memory foam top layer that conforms to pressure points, such as the hips and shoulders.

This cushions the sensitive parts of your body so you don’t wake up with aching joints.

Otty recommends the Original Hybrid mattress and the Pure models for those suffering from joint and back problems [1]. 🤕

Spinal alignment

The Otty Hybrid mattress is designed to align the body while cushioning pressure points.

The Otty mattress encourages spinal alignment.

The Otty mattress promotes optimal spinal alignment and ensures that hips and shoulders are well supported. 🥰

The pocket spring core layer supports every surface of the body.

This ensures that the spine is kept straight and aligned throughout the night, helping to prevent neck and back pain.

Sleeping position

Did you know that you need a different mattress depending on how you sleep?

The medium-firm rating makes the Otty Hybrid mattress ideal for back sleepers.

Shoulders and hips are cushioned by the memory foam layer, while the supportive springs prevent your spine from bending.

The Otty mattress is suitable for back sleepers.

However, it’s also soft enough to encourage side sleepers to sink in sufficiently, allowing the heavier body parts to sink in a little deeper and reducing aches on pressure points.

But we wouldn’t recommend the Otty Original Hybrid mattress for stomach sleepers.

Stomach sleepers need a firm mattress with minimal sinkage. ⚓

The DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid mattress is a good alternative for average-weight stomach sleepers.

This hybrid mattress combines supportive pocket springs with a firm foam layer.

How firm is the Otty mattress?

The Otty Original Hybrid mattress is the firmest in the Otty Sleep range. 🧱

This Otty firm mattress is on the firmer side at 7 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 is the firmest.


Otty Hybrid mattress firmness

If you’re of a larger build, it might still feel a little too soft, but it’s much firmer than other hybrid mattresses and pure memory foam mattresses. 🧽

Heavier weight people feel more comfortable on pure innerspring mattresses as they are firmer than other mattresses and offer much more stability.

They’re also the preferred choice for stomach sleepers who need firmer support.

Find out more about the Best Firm Mattresses in our article.

If you’re looking for a softer hybrid mattress, we recommend the Nectar Hybrid or the Simba Hybrid.

Is the Otty mattress good for couples?

The Otty mattress can be described as a mattress with low motion transfer.

But what is motion transfer?

Motion transfer measures how much movement is transferred on the mattress. ⛹️

The Otty mattress has low motion transfer.

A mattress with high motion transfer moves when you move, disrupting your sleep if you or your partner are restless sleepers.

An ideal mattress isolates this motion, and you don’t feel any movement even if your partner gets up at night.

The Otty Hybrid mattress is an excellent choice for couples and restless sleepers. 😴

You can expect a night of undisturbed sleep on the Otty mattress.


Edge support

The Otty mattress has extra firm side panels that give it excellent edge support.

This means you can sit on the edge of the bed without sinking in.

This is great for the elderly who need to get in and out of bed easily. 👴

The Otty mattress has good edge support.

Edge support also prevents the feeling of “roll-off”, so you won’t experience that feeling of tipping out of bed.


Otty Hybrid cover

The Otty Hybrid mattress features a luxurious, thick-knit mattress cover that provides a soft and comfortable sleeping surface.

A disadvantage is that the cover has no handles, which makes transporting and turning the mattress a little more complicated. 🤔

Can you wash the Otty mattress cover?

The Otty mattress cover is completely removable and can be machine-washed at 40 degrees.

The Otty Hybrid mattress has a machine-washable cover.

This makes it a good choice for anyone who sweats at night and wants to keep their mattress fresh. 🧼

It’s also ideal for allergy sufferers, as regular washing of the cover helps remove dirt and dust accumulated on the cover.

Despite the washable cover, we recommend you use a mattress protector to keep your new Otty mattress safe from stains and accidents.

Take a look at our favourite mattress protectors:

Is the Otty mattress good for hot sleepers?

The unique airflow system of the Otty Hybrid mattress ensures a much cooler sleep than conventional memory foam mattresses. ✅

This is due to the cooling gel and pinholes in the memory foam layer and the additional airflow capabilities of the side support panels.

Of course, the pocket springs in the Otty mattress also play a role in this.


Circulation in hybrid mattress
The Otty mattress has optimal ventilation.

Innerspring mattresses are usually much cooler than other types of mattresses because the space between the springs allows for natural ventilation channels that increase the overall airflow in the mattress. 🌬️

This allows body heat to escape and keeps the mattress cooler overall.

The temperature-regulating memory foam has breathable pin holes, which push out excess heat and allows for better circulation.

You’ll probably find the Otty mattress exceptionally comfortable if you prefer a cooler sleep.

Our article on the best cool mattresses can provide some even cooler alternatives.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can you tell me more about Otty Sleep?

    Otty Sleep was founded in 2016.

    The Otty Hybrid mattress was designed to offer more support and a cooler sleep than traditional memory foam mattresses while offering more comfort than conventional pocket spring mattresses.

    Hygiene was also an important motive, which is why Otty Sleep developed its product with a removable and washable cover for a fully hypoallergenic experience. 

    All Otty mattresses are designed and manufactured in the UK.

    The company is based in Leeds.

    Learn more about their bestselling mattress in our Otty Original Hybrid mattress review. 

  • Is the Otty Hybrid available on Amazon in the UK?

    Yes, Amazon UK sells the Otty Original Hybrid, Otty Pure, Otty Pure Plus, and the Otty Essential Hybrid. 

    The Essential Hybrid is a lower cost mattress with a height of 23 cm.

    This mattress has since been rebranded and is sold as the Otty Aura.

    While you still receive your 100-night trial if you purchase through Amazon, we would always recommend purchasing directly from the brand for quality assurance.

  • Which Otty mattress is best?

    The best mattress for your sleep depends on your unique sleep requirements.

    You should also consider what kind of budget you have for a new mattress and keep this realistic.

    These hybrid mattresses are suitable for most sleepers.

    Our Otty Hybrid mattress review can also help you decide if this mattress is for you. 

    However, we also recommend the following:

    • Otty Aura Hybrid mattress for budget buyers
    • Otty Original Hybrid mattress for back sleepers
    • Otty Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal mattress for hot sleepers and allergy sufferers
    • OTTY Pure+ Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal Premium mattress for side sleepers

    We wouldn’t recommend an Otty mattress to heavier-weight people or stomach sleepers.

    Instead, consider a pocket-sprung bed, which will provide firmer support and stability.

  • Otty mattress awards & certifications

    The Otty Original Hybrid is an award-winning mattress. 🏆

    It is a Which? Best Buy mattress and has also won numerous other awards, including Best Buy and Product Of The Year from Expert Reviews.

    They even have seals of approval and recommendations from Good Housekeeping and Real Homes.

    Otty Sleep is also the only bed-in-a-box mattress supplier to receive an award from the National Bed Federation [2].

    Otty Hybrid certifications

    CertiPUR [3] and Europur [4] approve all foams used in the Otty Hybrid mattress.

    This means that the foams do not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins.

    All Otty products comply with UK fire regulations and have passed the BS7177 fire test [5]. ✔️

    Customers' problems include the mattress feeling firmer or softer than anticipated.

    This is quite common with mattresses, as everyone has different expectations and sensitivity levels to firmness.

    Luckily, the Otty mattress includes a 100-night sleep trial, so you can see how it adjusts to your body type. 

  • Otty Trustpilot reviews

    The Otty mattress has also received a 4.5 rating from over 9000 reviews on TrustPilot.

    Otty Sleep also has 81% 5-star reviews

    This is much better stats than Eve sleep and Emma Sleep UK on Trustpilot.

    Customers think Otty is great quality, reasonably priced, and has a responsive customer service team. 📞

  • Otty Hybrid mattress guarantee

    Otty believes in the quality of its products and offers a 10-year guarantee on the Otty mattress.

    But what does that mean? 🤔

    You are protected against manufacturing defects such as sagging and dipping.

    However, there is a bit of fine print regarding mattress indentations.

    If your Otty mattress dips, it must be visible to the naked eye and be more than 25 mm within the first 12 months.

    The allowance for dipping increases each year, which suggests that some dipping is to be expected.

    More information on these conditions can be found on the Otty website.

  • What else does Otty sell?

    Otty Sleep also offers numerous other mattresses and sleep accessories. 

    The mattress selection includes the Otty Pure Hybrid Bamboo Charcoal mattress, the Otty Aura Hybrid mattress, and the Otty Pure Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal Premium mattress.

    In terms of sleep accessories, Otty offers bed frames, Otty pillows, bedding, duvets, and a waterproof mattress protector

    But the company also has an entire range of mattresses for you to consider. 🤯

    This Otty mattress range includes the following:

    • Otty Aura Hybrid mattress
    • Otty Pure Hybrid Bamboo and Charcoal mattress
    • Otty Pure+ Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal Premium mattress

    The Otty Aura Hybrid is similar to the Otty Original Hybrid mattress but is more budget-friendly. 

    Alternatively, the Otty Pure+ Hybrid Bamboo & Charcoal Premium mattress is more luxurious, with 4000 pocket springs and antibacterial natural bamboo that wicks away moisture for a cool and clean sleep.

    Otty accessories

    Otty also has a range of sleep accessories to pair with your new Otty mattress.

    The Otty accessory range includes the following:

    • Otty pillows
    • Otty mattress topper
    • Otty beds 
    • Otty duvets
    • Otty bedding

    We think the Otty mattress topper is a great choice for somebody looking to enhance their sleep but isn’t ready to splurge on a new mattress.💰

    We don’t have any Otty reviews of sleep accessories, but we’ll update this page as soon as we do.
