Best Mattress for Combo Sleepers: Overview

So, you’re trying to find a new mattress. We know there are many, many options out there and it can be overwhelming trying to pick just one bed, which is why we’ve taken the time to do some leg work for you. In this post, we’ll cover what our team thinks are the best mattresses for combo sleepers. This means that the following beds will be comfortable for you even if you sleep in a variety of positions (side, back, and stomach).

Please keep in mind that we are not physicians or chiropractors and this is not an offering of health advice. That said, we did consult with a chiropractor to help us firm up our opinions and select this list.

At the bare minimum, this should serve as a starting point for you. I won’t be offended in the slightest if you do some extra research, but I do think that you’ll get a lot out of this post. And with that out of the way, let’s talk best beds for combination sleepers.

Cocoon Classic By Sealy


  • People on a budget
  • Individuals who like options (two different firmness levels)
  • People looking for a memory foam bed
  • Couples (good motion isolation and edge support for all-foam bed)


  • Heavy individuals (all-foam bed that isn't even 10” thick)
  • Folks who dislike memory foam
  • Combo sleepers that spend the majority of the night on their side

If you watched the video above, you may have noticed Eve was originally included as one of our picks. However, it appears Eve may be pulling out of the US market. Don’t worry, though, we have a solid replacement for you, the Cocoon Classic by Sealy.

Like Eve, this mattress has a memory foam feel. However, it’s more of a dense memory foam feel. The Cocoon Classic is available in two different firmness levels (Soft and Firm), but we recommend combo sleepers go with the Soft version. The Soft version will provide a little more pressure relief when you roll over onto your side.

The other nice thing about the Cocoon Classic is that both options land on the firmer side of the spectrum. This is good because the bed doesn’t give you much of that stuck-in-the-mud feel that memory foam is traditionally known for. As such, combo sleepers will find it easier two switch between positions than they would on a mattress like Zinus or Nectar, for example.



  • Sleepers who want a bed with a neutral-foam feel
  • Individuals who want to buy from an established bed-in-a-box brand
  • Couples (accommodating feel with good motion isolating properties)
  • All sleep styles (i.e. back, stomach, side, and combo)


  • Heavier individuals
  • Memory foam enthusiasts
  • Folks who want/need a coil mattress

Leesa, like Casper, has a soft, neutral-foam feel. However, in our opinion it’s just a hair firmer than Casper. This makes it great for combination sleepers who spend most of the night on their stomach and/or back—it will still do just fine for strict side sleepers as well.

The mattress is comprised of a 6” layer of dense support foam, memory foam, and a special LSA200 proprietary foam. There’s no true signature feel of Leesa, but that’s what makes it so popular—it works for a variety of people and doesn’t tend to alienate many sleepers with a completely unique feel.

Leesa is 10” thick, and does not contain any coils for support, so we think this mattress is best for medium and petite sized sleepers. Overall, this is a very accommodating, affordable bed that is great for combination sleepers who spend a lot of time on their back and stomach.

IDLE Sleep Hybrid


  • People who want to pick from multiple firmness options
  • Individuals looking for a soft, neutral-foam feel
  • Sleepers who want a flippable mattress (helps increase useful life of the bed)
  • People who want a bed with a lifetime warranty
  • All body types (petite, medium, and heavy folks)


  • People who tend to sleep hot
  • Folks on a tight budget
  • Anyone that doesn't want to deal with a thick and heavy mattress

People who are searching for a mattress with both coils and soft foam will likely enjoy the IDLE Sleep Hybrid. This bed has a comfortable, soft, neutral-foam feel, but it is very supportive given that it has pocketed coils.

The IDLE Hybrid comes in a variety of firmness options, so sleepers can choose the one that works best for their sleeping preferences. And this bed should be a good fit for combination sleepers of all sizes thanks to how thick and supportive it is.

People really care about durability will also appreciate the fact that the IDLE Hybrid is a flippable, two-sided mattress. Regularly flipping a mattress can help prevent body indentations.

Purple 3


  • If you're open to a new type of mattress
  • All styles of sleepers (side, back, stomach, combo)
  • All sized sleepers (petite, medium, heavy)
  • People who sleep hot (this mattress allows for great airflow)
  • Individuals who want a responsive mattress that also isolates motion well


  • People who don’t like bouncy beds
  • If you want a more traditional feeling bed (i.e. memory foam, soft foam, or innersprings)
  • Coupon clippers (Purple.3 is not cheap)

Purple mattresses are great for people who want a very unique feeling bed. Purple is different than pretty much every other mattress out there right now, because their beds use a special material called Hyper-Elastic Polymer. The Hyper-Elastic Polymer topper is constructed in a grid format that allows for an almost unreal amount of airflow, which is the reason that Purple made our list of the Best Mattresses for Hot Sleepers and Best Mattresses for Night Sweats/Hot Flashes.

Combination sleepers who sleep predominantly on their side will likely find this bed to be excellent at pressure relief. However, the Purple 3 is constructed with a combination of coils, foam, and that Hyper-Elastic Polymer material, which makes it supportive enough for combination sleepers who spend a lot of the night on their back and stomach, as well. Because the Purple 3 is so supportive, yet soft, we think it should be comfortable for all sizes of sleepers, even heavier individuals.

Overall, this is a great bed for combination sleepers, but it is quite expensive and very unique, so it might not be for everyone.



  • People who want an affordable latex bed
  • Anyone that wants an accommodating mattress (it’s just a safe pick)
  • Individuals who want a longer than average warranty (2x normal warranty)
  • Couples (solid edge support and motion isolation for all-foam bed)


  • People who are looking for a 100% latex bed
  • Heavier body types

While GhostBed is technically a latex hybrid, we chose it as the best latex mattress for combination sleepers for several reasons. This mattress is very accommodating, with 1.5” layer of latex foam, 2” of gel memory foam, and 7.5” of a dense base layer. This mix gives it a neutral-foam feel that has characteristics of both memory foam and latex foam.

Combination sleepers who spend a lot of time on their sides will likely find the GhostBed more comfortable than a lot of all-latex bed because of the pressure-relieving capabilities of memory foam. GhostBed is also significantly more affordable than most all-latex beds, including Zenhaven and the IDLE Latex Hybrid.

Furthermore, this will be a good mattress for couples because (among other things) GhostBed isolates motion well, meaning you won’t be jolted awake when your partner moves at night. GhostBed also has a 20-year warranty, which is about double what most bed-in-a-box companies offer. Overall, combination sleepers should find GhostBed an affordable and pressure-relieving alternative to all-latex beds.

The Criteria Used When Selecting This List

We didn’t place price restrictions when selecting this list, although we tried to include a variety of affordable beds. We also tried to include beds that accommodate a variety of different sleeping positions because, at the end of the day, that’s what combination sleepers need.

For example, when someone is sleeping on their side, they will want a bed that is pressure relieving. In other words, the bed should be soft, and give underneath the hips, so the body can lie flat on the bed. However, when someone is sleeping on their back or stomach, they will want a firmer, more supportive bed.

Again, we are not doctors or chiropractors, so please consult your doctor if you have any concerns, but we did consult with a professional chiropractor for some tips, which we use for all our mattress reviews.
