Hyde and Sleep is a mattress company that is based in the United Kingdom. The makers behind this company are truly passionate about sleep, and they are dedicated to creating products that will meet the needs of every sleeper, ensuring a truly restful and restorative night of sleep.
In order to ensure that they created the best quality products, Hyde and Sleep teamed up with Dreams, a company that has more than 30 years of experience and is one of the most trusted mattress manufacturers in Britain. The goal of Hyde and Sleep was to create a luxury mattress that would meet the needs of all people; however, since not everyone was the same needs, they knew that creating a single mattress wouldn’t do. With that said, they have created two separate and distinct mattresses: A memory foam mattress, which is made of a combination of memory foam and polyfoam, and a hybrid mattress. In this buyer’s guide, we have assessed the Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress from Hyde and Sleep.
This award-winning mattress is comprised of three separate layers, which contain next generation memory foam, cooling foam, and high-density base foam. All three layers work together to create a sleep surface that offers exceptional comfort and superior support.
- Durable and high quality foam construction
- Pressure point relief
- Reduced pain
- Comfortable in all sleep positions
- 10 year warranty
- 100 night trial period
- Full money back guarantee
- Limited motion transfer
- Only available in the United Kingdom, at present time
- Can’t be tried before buying
- May not provide the cooling properties you are looking for if you sleep hot
Below is our final score of the Hyde and Sleep mattress based on multiple criteria that we use when testing all of our mattresses.
What’s It Made From…
The Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress is made of the highest quality foam materials, including next generation memory foam, cooling foam and high-density base foam. All these materials combine to create a mattress that is 10 inches high and delivers great comfort, exceptional support, and it remains cool.
The Top Layer
The first layer of the Hyde and Sleep memory foam mattress is made of memory foam. This is the layer that provides the mattress with the softness that you feel when you first lie on it. The memory foam also contours to the body, making you feel as if you are being ‘hugged.’ This layer also works to cool the mattress, as it is infused with a cooling balm, which helps to absorb body heat and keeps the mattress a consistent temperature while it is in use.
The Middle Layer
The second layer of the mattress is made of a combination of latex and memory foam. This layer allows the mattress to further contour to the body, thanks to the memory foam. The latex provides the mattress with bounce, which makes it easier to get in and out of, and also allows for a better level of intimacy.
The Third Layer
The final layer of the Hyde and Sleep foam mattress is made of high-density foam. This layer has 7 channeled zones, which provides more support where it is needed and less support where it isn’t. This is the layer that provides deep compression support, helping to relieve pressure point build-up. The 7 zones also improve airflow, which keeps the mattress cool and comfortable.
The Hyde and Sleep memory foam mattress is enveloped in polyester and Elastane blend cover. This material is soft, yet stretchy; when we pulled on it, it bounced right back to its original shape. The fabric is also thick, which makes it highly breathable and improves the overall airflow of the mattress. The cover and upper portion of the sides are white, and the lower portion of the sides are gray in color. Green piping separates the white from the gray, adding a nice pop of color.
Hands on Review
The Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress can only be purchased online, and it is shipped directly from the manufacturer to your location. While this certainly does make the process of buying your mattress a lot easier, and it also helps to reduce the cost of the mattress, there is one drawback: You can’t try it out before you buy it. As a result, it’s difficult to determine whether or not it will provide the comfort and support that you are looking for.
To help you gain a better understanding of the overall construction of the Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress from Hyde and Sleep, we have assessed the most important criteria that impact the quality of sleep that it will offer. This criterion includes:
On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, we rate the Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress from Hyde and Sleep a 6. The slightly higher than medium firmness of the mattress makes it comfortable and supportive for the majority of sleepers. The first layer of Next Gen memory foam is soft and hugs the body nicely, but the softness is offset by the transition foam in the middle layer and the support foam on the bottom layer, which provides the mattress with its firmness.
Overall, we found that this mattress was extremely comfortable. When first lying on the mattress, you will instantly feel the softness of the cover. The Next Generation memory foam allows the body to sink into the mattress, yet the sink it’s so significant that you feel as if you are being swallowed.
There is minimal motion transfer, which also adds to the comfort that the Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress provides. The foam layers absorb any motion that is created, which means you won’t be disturbed by a sleeping partner and you will be able to enjoy a more restful night of sleep.
Pain Relief and Support
With the Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress from Hyde and Sleep, you will notice an exceptional amount of support. The first layer of memory foam contours to the body, while the second and third layers of denser foam adjust to your body weight. In other words, the heavier points of your body will receive more support, while the lighter points will receive less support, which helps to provide pressure point relief. Your spine will also remain in proper alignment, no matter what position you are sleeping in, which will allow you to wake up pain-free, refreshed and well rested.
We were very impressed by the limited amount of heat retention of this mattress. The upper layer of memory foam, combined with the breathable cover allow for great air flow. The channels in the support form also assist with airflow, helping to keep the mattress an even temperature. However, we should point out that if you tend to sleep very hot normally, this mattress may not remain as cool as you would like it to. If your cooling needs are on the average side, you will find this mattress should work just fine; however, if you have a higher body temperature, you may experience some issues with heat retention.
Off gassing is an issue that is commonly experienced with mattresses that are made of foam. The chemicals that are used during the manufacturing process often have a certain smell to them, and that smell can come out of the mattress, especially when it is brand new.
With the Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress, we did notice a slight amount of odor when we first received it. After setting it up, we placed it in a well-ventilated room for a few hours, and the smell did dissipate. We suggest you do the same if you notice any odor when you first receive the mattress.
Mattresses that are made of foam often offer a limited bounce. This is good for comfort, as it minimizes motion transfer; however, it is not necessarily a good thing when you want to engage in intimate activities. Because the foam absorbs movement, it reduces the amount of bounce, which means that you will have to put more effort in when you want to enjoy intimacy activities.
Sleeping Position Ratings
We also tested out how the Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress from Hyde and Sleep accommodates the support needs for different sleeping positions. As you can imagine, each sleeping position requires a different amount of support, which means that a mattress has to be able to accommodate those needs.
Here’s a look at how this mattress stacks up for the different sleep positions…
This mattress did a good job of providing support and comfort when we were sleeping on our back. Body weight is evenly distributed throughout the mattress, and there was a minimal amount of sinkage. It hugged the body and also provided pressure point relief, providing comfort and support throughout the night while lying on the back.
Back Sleeping score: 9/10
For stomach sleepers, this model of the Hyde and Sleep mattress may seem a bit too soft at first; however, the higher density foams in the center and the foundation of the mattress do quickly start working, and provide the support that is needed to make you feel like you are not being completely enveloped by the mattress. Additionally, because it does keep the spine in proper alignment, you will be able to enjoy greater comfort when sleeping on your stomach.
Stomach Sleeping score: 8.5/10
While lying on the side, we did notice that there was more sinkage than there was when lying on the back or the stomach. That’s because there is more weight placed on the mattress, specifically around the center of the body. Though the mattress does sink more while lying on the side, it does a wonderful job of providing the right amount of support where it is needed, thereby providing pressure point relief.
Side Sleeping score: 8.5/10
Bed Frame Compatibility
If you really want to experience the comfort and support that the Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress is designed to provide, we suggest using a bed frame that is either solid or that has durable slats that are not spaced too far apart. If not, you could end up not having the proper support for the mattress, which will impact the overall feel of the mattress.
If you are opting for a bed frame that has slats, we suggest choosing one where the slats are placed no more than 3 inches apart. The slats should also be made of durable wood or metal, which will prevent bending and bowing.
Warranty, Guarantee and Trial Period
- Warranty: 10-year limited manufacturer warranty. If you should experience any issues that are a result of manufacturing defects, within 10 years from the date of your purchase, contact the company and they will either repair the mattress, or they will replace it with a new one.
- Guarantee: Full money back guarantee
- Trial Period: 100 night trial period. Should you not be satisfied with the mattress, for any reason, during the trial period, simply contact the manufacturer and they will pick up the mattress and they will fully refund your money.
The Hyde and Sleep Next-Gen Memory Foam mattress is comprised of three layers of the highest quality foam materials, including Next Generation Memory Foam, cooling foam, and high-density support foam.
