There are many types of mattresses. MidAmerica Bedding offers a mix of innerspring, gel-memory foam, encased coil, gel hybrid, and latex hybrid mattress collections to meet a variety of sleep needs and budgets. Each mattress type incorporates different materials and sleep technologies. Knowing the differences between options helps you select the right mattress for you and your budget. 

Innerspring mattress: An innerspring mattress uses a steel coil support system layered with foam or fiber padding. These mattresses rely on springs that connect into a single unit or units with individually wrapped pocketed coils. The more coils there are, the better individual support you have. The mattresses in MidAmerica Bedding’s Bright Night Collection use different types of coil to provide options for every budget while its Elite Encased Coil and Hybrid Collection offers pocketed coil mattresses with unique comfort and cooling features.

Pillow-top mattress: A pillow top mattress has additional padding on top to provide extra-soft comfort. Companies use polyurethane foam, memory foam, latex, or nanocoils in the pillowtop. 

Hybrid mattress: A hybrid mattress combines a steel coil support system with layers of today’s specialty foams. MidAmerica Bedding’s Elite Hybrid Collection combines pocketed coil construction with GelMemory foam and/or latex.

Specialty foam mattress: Specialty foam mattresses use one or more types of foam for their support systems. The foam may be polyurethane, memory, or latex. The mattress may also contain gel or other materials. 

Gel mattress: Gel mattresses use a foam that contains gel in the cell structure of the foam. Gel foam adds comfort and support as well cooling properties.

Latex mattress: Latex mattresses use latex rubber made from plant-based sustainable materials. MidAmerica Bedding’s Elite Latex Hybrid Collection uses latex for cooling comfort, support, and durability, while supplementing it with a full-dimension encased coil system for added support.
