Emma’s Original Hybrid mattress is built for support, comfort and temperature control. In the following sections, we break down its features and construction.
UltraDry Original Cover
Let’s start with the UltraDry Original Cover. Made of breathable, moisture-wicking fabric, it prevents overheating and keeps you dry. It’s removable and washable too.
Cloud Comfort Layer
You’ll love how the Emma Original Hybrid combines a plush feel with just enough bounce. With a balance of support and contouring, the graphite-infused comfort layer won’t give you that sinking feeling. It cradles your body and springs back when you change position.
ParticleCool Premium Foam
Traditional foam can trap heat as it contours to your body. The Emma Original Hybrid’s memory foam layer, however, is designed to keep you cool. The ParticleCool Premium foam is infused with graphite to draw away moisture and heat. According to the Emma website, it can keep you up to 2 degrees cooler than trad memory foam.

Individually Wrapped Pocket Springs
The Emma Original Hybrid Mattress core contains individually wrapped 8-inch springs, also called pocket springs. This layer has several functions:
- Zoned support for your lower back, shoulders, neck and hips.
- Keeps you cool by creating air pockets.
- Provide edge support.
- Prevent motion transfer across the mattress surface.
HRX Supreme Foam
The HRX stands form ”high resiliency extra”, and that’s exactly what you get with this layer. The durable foam prevents sagging and distributes body weight evenly across the mattress. That means you get ample support and stability, along with pressure relief at your spine, shoulders and hips.
Finally, the durable base layer adds more edge support to the Emma Original Hybrid. This layer adds reinforcement to the perimeter of the mattress.
Your Choice of Sizes
Along with support and comfort, size is a major consideration when buying a mattress. At 11 inches thick, the Emma Original Hybrid is available in the following sizes.
- Twin — 38” W × 75” L
- Twin XL — 38” W × 80” L
- Full — 54” W × 75” L
- Queen — 60” W × 80” L
- King — 76” W × 80” L
- Cal King — 72” W × 84” L
With a medium-firm feel, the Emma Original Hybrid balances support with comfort. The high resiliency foam and pocket spring core provide support while the plush top layer relieves pressure. This firmness level is ideal for side, back and stomach sleepers. It’s also great for couples who have differing firmness preferences.
Emma Original Hybrid Review: Benefits and Any Drawbacks
We’ve covered the top features of the Emma Original Hybrid. After our research and review, we believe the Emma Original Hybrid mattress has the following pros as well as limitations.
Stay Cool and Dry
You can enjoy the plush contouring comfort of the Emma Original Hybrid mattress without breaking into a sweat. The open-cell foam and breathable cover allow air to circulate and carry away body heat. The springs act as bellows to regulate air flow, and the graphite-infused memory foam stays cool, even as it hugs your body. The moisture-wicking memory foam and cover also keep you dry. Even if you tend to sleep hot, you’ll stay cool and comfy.
Balance of Comfort and Support
Whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach, you can stability and comfort where you need it. The 8-inch pocket springs target extra support to your back, shoulders and hips. The softer comfort layer and memory foam contour to your natural shape, preventing gaps between your body and the mattress. The result? Pressure relief for your lower back and joints to help prevent morning aches and stiffness.
Another benefit of the pocket coil core is motion isolation. In other words, the coils prevent motion from transferring across the mattress surface. This feature is especially helpful for couples. If you frequently change sleep position or have to get out of bed during the night, your partner can sleep right through it.
CertiPUR-US Certified Foams
You can have peace of mind when you bring the Emma Original Hybrid mattress into your home. All of the foam in the mattress is CertiPUR-US certified, which means they are free of harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, phthalates, toxic heavy metals and flame retardants. The mattress is also environmentally friendly, with low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions.
Generous 365-Night Sleep Trial
You can’t know right away if a mattress will be comfortable. The break-in period alone lasts about 30 days. The adjustment period is extra long if you’re used to sleeping on an old, soft mattress. Every Emma Original Hybrid mattress comes with a 365-night sleep trial. Beginning with delivery day, you get to try the mattress at home for a whole year.
The company recommends giving it a few weeks before you decide whether to keep the mattress. If you are not happy with the Emma Original Hybrid, the company will arrange a free pickup and refund.
Convenient Shipping to Your Door
When you order the Emma Original Hybrid, it will be shipped in a box to your door, even if you’re not home. Before shipping, the mattress is compressed and rolled to fit in the box. No more waiting around for a delivery team or arranging transportation from a store showroom.
A mattress in a box is very heavy, so it’s best to ask someone to help you carry the box it into your bedroom. After you unbox it, you may have to wait a few hours for it to decompress. There may be an unpleasant but harmless smell that will dissipate within a few days. Keep the bedroom well-ventilated while the mattress expands and airs out.
Besides the sleep trial, Emma also backs its Original Hybrid mattress with a 10-year guaranteed warranty. The company will replace a mattress that is found defective with normal use. Coverage includes defects such as cracks in the foam and impressions deeper than 1.5 inches that do not spring back. Warranty terms can change at any time, so make sure you check the most up-to-date warranty terms before buying the mattress.
Payment Plans Available
One more thing to like about buying the Emma Original Hybrid is the availability of payment plans. After all, a mattress is a major investment. Emma has partnered with Zip and Shop Pay to provide financing. To apply, just choose Zip or Shop Pay at checkout.
Emma Original Hybrid Mattress Review: Final Thoughts
The Emma Original Hybrid mattress combines the contouring memory foam with the targeted support of pocket coils. Breathable materials and advanced cooling technologies make this mattress a comfortable sleep surface for side, back and stomach sleepers. With a medium-firm feel, it’s a great option for spouses or partners who prefer different firmness levels.
The contouring comfort layer is plush and responsive at the same time. Premium memory foam adds another conforming layer. Combine these layers with zoned support from the pocket coil core, and you have pressure relief for your spine, shoulders and hips. High-resiliency foam and a durable base add stability and edge support.
A comfortable temperature is essential for a good night’s sleep. The Emma Original Hybrid has a breathable cover and open-cell memory foam to help you sleep cool. Plus, the individually wrapped coils create air pockets that help regulate temperature.
The coil core also provides motion isolation. This is an especially valuable feature for couples, families or pet parents. If your partner is tossing and turning, or if your pet jumps on the bed, the motion won’t transfer to your side of the bed. Your sleep won’t be disturbed and you can wake up refreshed in the morning.
