Excellent Matches For Elements Latex Hybrid:
- Comfort Seekers – The Elements Latex Hybrid bed is available in Soft, Medium, or Firm comfort options, so shoppers can find the feel that works best for their sleep position and personal preferences.
- Budget Shoppers – Mixing latex and individually encased coils allow the company to reduce costs so that they can offer you a comfortable bed with an impressive price tag.
- Variety Lovers – Not only is the Elements Latex Hybrid available in three different firmness options, but you can also purchase this bed at either a 10-inch or 12-inch height. This gives you plenty of variety to choose the fit that best accommodates your needs.
Possible Elements Latex Hybrid Considerations:
- It doesn’t have a classic innerspring feel – Buyers might notice more contouring than is often found in a classic innerspring bed due to the hybrid construction, though the blend of latex and innersprings still provide good bounce and should cradle your pressure points while keeping it easy to reposition.
- There is a weight limit – According to the company’s website, the bed can support up to 950 pounds. For those who weigh over 300 pounds or whose partner is above that weight, you may want to consider a bed with more adequate support. Brooklyn Bedding specifically recommends their Titan Mattress for sleepers with significantly larger frames.
Construction: What’s in the Elements Latex Hybrid?
This is a hybrid bedding product that combines layers of latex, individually encased coils, and foam. The mattress is conveniently compressed and shipped inside a box.
This item can be used on a wood foundation, a platform bed, or a slatted base with the slats no more than three or four inches apart to prevent too much sagging between the slats. The company sells proprietary frames through its website.
- The first layer features a Quilted Cotton Blend Top with Soft Reflex Foam at 1 inch thick. This should feel soft and plush as sleepers lie on it. The overall height of this mattress is either 10 or 12 inches, depending on which height you select.
- Below the cover is a Talalay latex at 3 inches thick. This material is meant to contour to the body, allowing enhanced pressure support and promoting proper spinal alignment through conforming lumbar support.
- The bottom of the Elements Latex Hybrid mattress features either 6” or 8” of individually encased coils (which depends on your choice of thickness) for excellent pressure relief, motion isolation, and zoned support.
This mattress takes individual needs to heart and offers the product in soft, medium, or firm models to provide customized comfort. The upgraded 12-inch model also comes with a convenient zippered cover, which allows you to customize your mattress’s firmness as needed.
First Impression: How Does It Feel?
The bed ships to your door in a box, and once you unbox the bed, it should be ready to sleep on within 24 hours.
Lying on the cover, you should notice a cool and soft sensation. Pressure relief should activate once you sink into the top layers, allowing you to enjoy a deeper, conforming cradle. The lower levels should then push back, offering firm support.
There should be a good upper bounce, and the materials should respond very quickly, removing impressions for easy repositioning.
Firmness Scale: 5.5/10 (Soft), 6.5/10 (Medium), 7.5/10 (Firm)
As you lie down, you’ll begin to notice that parts of your body feel more pressurized. That is due to excess weight gathering in those particular areas. They are more commonly referred to as our pressure points.
For those who feel added pressure to the point where it becomes uncomfortable or painful, a bed that will provide relief is critical.
For example, when a mattress lacks contouring, pain can develop in those areas of greater pressure, such as the shoulders and hips. The upper foam materials of the Elements Latex Hybrid are designed to conform to the sleeper, and the coils are made to provide a moderate cradle that should relieve pressure from the hips and shoulders as they press into the mattress. For greater pressure relief, the Soft level of firmness should offer a deeper cradle by allowing heavier areas to sink in further.
Pain can develop or worsen over time for a number of reasons, including poor alignment of the spine. The right bed, however, can play an essential role in providing the proper support for your spine to minimize pain in areas like the back and neck.
The convoluted base foam on the Elements Latex Hybrid is designed to offer a firm base of support that aims to keep your spine in a neutral alignment. In addition, the individually encased coils combined with the Talalay latex should offer contouring support for the lumbar spine. Heavier individuals or those seeking additional support may want to lean towards the Firm model.
Multiple Firmness Options
Having three firmness levels is a great option for people who want customized support and pressure relief based on their individual needs.
The combination of innersprings and latex foam gives this bed a nice level of bounce that should aid sleepers in repositioning. Unlike beds that contain purely memory foam, sleepers should never feel “stuck” in this mattress.
Handcrafted in the USA

The Elements Latex Hybrid combines an innerspring system with the latex foam giving this bed a nice level of bounce that should aid sleepers in repositioning. Unlike beds that contain purely latex or memory foam, sleepers should never feel “stuck” in this mattress.
The foams are designed to contour to the shape of the body, offering vital pressure relief to side sleepers. Settling down for sleep, you should notice your hips and shoulders sinking nicely into the upper layers. Average to heavy side sleepers will probably be most comfortable on the Medium version, while lighter side sleepers should consider the Soft model.
Back sleepers who need a good amount of support for spinal alignment should feel comfortable on the Medium and Firm options that offer enhanced support. The initial foams should offer contouring for the lumbar spine, while the bottom layer gives that pushback support to keep everything properly aligned.
Stomach sleepers usually feel most comfortable on firmer beds that prevent the hips from sinking too deeply. Heavy and average-sized sleepers should notice that the Firm model adequately supports the midsection and keeps the hips in line with the shoulders. For lighter stomach sleepers, the Medium should offer enough softness for a gentle cradle while keeping the body aligned.
Combination sleepers who change positions throughout the night should be very pleased with the ability to select a firmness level that provides a good balance of pressure relief and support. For most combination sleepers, the Medium would be the ideal choice. With a good amount of bounce and responsiveness in the foams, changing positions should be easy.
Having three levels of firmness to choose from offers good versatility for couples with varying needs. Sexually active folks should be pleased with the good level of bounce and support this mattress offers. While there are no cooling features, the convoluted foam base should allow for adequate airflow that helps with temperature regulation.
While some larger bodies may feel comfortable on the Firm model as the innerspring units help, the Elements Latex Hybrid lacks the support that most heavier sleepers need. Despite being a mattress that blends coils, latex and traditional foam, there is less robust lift, and heavier sleepers risk bottoming out and having materials that may sink over time.
Many individuals weighing less than 120 pounds experience the majority of beds as too firm. Thankfully, the Elements Latex comes in three levels of firmness, including Soft. This plush option should allow lighter sleepers to experience some contouring and cradling in all sleeping positions.
Dreamfoam’s Elements Latex mattress is designed to promote a comfortable sleep experience accompanied by pressure relief and a deeper cradle. Good bounce and quickly responding foams should ensure easy repositioning.
With multiple levels of firmness to choose from, sleepers should be able to customize this bed according to their needs.
