Summary

If you’re a side sleeper, of any weight really, then I really do recommend the Simba Hybrid. In general though, if you’re lighter in weight then you’ll likely enjoy the Simba Hybrid as the build of it provides great support for all pressure points. However, to be perfectly honest, heavyweight sleepers should look elsewhere as it doesn’t provide enough support for the aforementioned pressure points.

I know you’re here to find out more about the Simba Hybrid mattress. And you’ve probably spent days reading mattress reviews because a mattress is, after all, a once-in-a-decade investment! Right?

So to keep you from wasting any of your precious time, I’ve lined up some questions below for you to have a quick read to find out if this is the mattress and review for you (Psstt… don’t worry… I provide the best alternatives as well!):

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then this review is made for you! Please feel free to use the table of contents below to skip to the best section for you!

But if you answered “no”, then have a look at these round-ups I made to help you decide which mattress fits your exact needs!

Simba Sleep - A Brief Introduction

You live in the best possible time in recorded history to buy a mattress. There are literally 1000’s of mattresses out there, but Simba Sleep has a long history in the sleep industry. And specifically in the mattress sector.

They actually started their journey all the way back in 1979, where in the years up until 2002 they honed their craft as a mattress thread supplied. In fact, their thread has been used in over 50 million mattresses around the world.

Simba Hybrid Mattress Construction

Simba Hybrid is exactly that – a hybrid mattress, meaning it’s made of both the aforementioned Simbatex memory foam and Titanium Aerocoil ® springs. This is one of the main reasons that drove me to try the Simba Hybrid – I personally love hybrid mattresses in general as I think it’s the best of both worlds!

The springs make it ‘bouncy’ enough so if you sleep with a partner, or you prefer a more cushion-y feel then this definitely helps compared to pure memory foam mattresses.

Off-Gassing & Unboxing

Off-gassing refers to the new, chemical smell that pretty much every mattress-in-a-box releases after you open them up and leave them to inflate – and the Simba Hybrid was no different.

Don’t worry it’s safe and normal, as they’re tightly vacuum sealed at their factory to ensure they’re kept as fresh as possible for your arrival. But some mattresses have stronger odours than others, which can be particularly annoying if you’re not in a well ventilated or large enough bedroom.

Firmness

Here’s where it gets a little complicated, as firmness is subjective. Why do I say it’s subjective? Because mattress firmness comes down to how your body reacts to your mattress. Our bodies react differently because of our variations in sleeping position, body weight, size and shape.

For one thing, a heavier person, like umm…James Corden (sorry James!) would find the mattress much softer. While a lighter person (less than 59kg/130lbs) would find the Simba Hybrid much too firm! So how then do we nail down this firmness issue?

So how form is the Simba Hybrid for me?

From my own experience (I’m 75kg/165lbs, by the way) the Simba hybrid is an overall medium firmness (6 6 out of 10). And for me, that’s just how I like it! On my first night, I immediately recognised that the mattress was softer on my shoulders, and heavier on my back and hips – and that’s exactly what I nee as a side sleeper!

I personally put his down to the zoned base support in the Simba Hybrid, and what this does is provide extra support int he most frequent pressure points.

But I say that it’s medium overall because the two layers immediately underneath the cover gives the mattress an overall medium feeling: the light, open cell-foam has been made to increase airflow and titanium-alloy Aeocoil® springs are 20% lighter than other microcoils.

RATING: 6/10

It is Good for Backsleepers?

What side sleepers need: Very soft to medium soft Pressure point: Shoulder

RATING: 4/5

Side sleepers need a very soft to medium soft mattress so your shoulder can sink into the foam cushioning. Side sleepers pressure points are often exaggerated, so if it’s not soft enough your shoulder may feel squished between your body and your mattress by your own weight.

It is Good for Side Back sleepers?

What side sleepers need: Very soft to medium soft Pressure point: Shoulder

RATING: 5/5

Side sleepers need a very soft to medium soft mattress so your shoulder can sink into the foam cushioning. Side sleepers pressure points are often exaggerated, so if it’s not soft enough your shoulder may feel squished between your body and your mattress by your own weight.

It is Good for Front Sleepers?

What side sleepers need: Medium Firm to Firm Pressure points: Somach and Hips.

RATING: 3.5/5

Front Sleeping is the most challenging position when you want to keep that back straight. Why? Because laying on your stomach immediately pulls your spine down due to the pressure exerted in your stomach. That’s why you need a medium-firm to firm mattress to prevent your stomach from sinking down any farther.

It is Good for Combo Sleepers?

What combo sleepers need: A bit of a bounciness.

RATING: 5/5

If you don’t stay in one sleeping position for long then you’re a combo sleeper! Since combo sleepers like you move a lot, then you need a mattress that can aid you in your movements. What kind of mattress can do that? A mattress with a bit of bounce does the trick!

It is Good for Hot Sleepers?

RATING: 2.5/5

I’m a hot sleeper. My girlfriend is always telling me how my side of the bed is soaked in seat in the morning – disgusting but guess who still gets his morning cuddles.

With A Sleeping Partner

RATING: 4/5

I tend to sleep at a later time than my girlfriend. So it’s always an issue when I shimmy in underneath the blanket and she starts to feel the mattress bounce on her side.

Edge Support

RATING: 2/5

I love to sit at the edge of my bed to get my bearings after waking up, take a sip of my overnight water, and have a few deep breaths. The BIG question is: can the mattress’s edge support me?

Best Features

So what are my 3 favorite features when it came to reviewing the Simba Hybrid mattress? I’d say it’s:

I LOVE Simba’s medium softness because I’m naturally a right side-sleeper, and sfot mattresses are my go-to! And of course, the handles! Who wouldn’t want these handy handles to aid oneself in rotating the mattress for even wear? It’s a little detail that I really appreciate with Simba!

Also, the zoned support is a HUGE PLUS. It makes sure that the mattress is firm where it needs to be firm to support the more common pressure points. Meaning Simba is firmer on the shoulders and waist area, as they tend to be the parts of the body which experience the most pressure going through them.
