The Eve Premium Hybrid mattress is a glorious fusion of springs and foam. Containing 5 layers of next-generation foam and no less than 1,400 springs the mattress sits at 28cm deep. Eve claim that this medium-form mattress is suitable for all sleeping positions. So I thought I had better put that to the test and bought one. It’s not the cheapest hybrid mattress available, but it’s also far from being one of the most expensive.

So is it any good? The only way to find out is to lie on one and see.

So that’s exactly what I did – read on to find out whether the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress is all it’s cracked up to be or whether the the hype is all a load of foam.

Eve Premium Hybrid mattress: Quick facts

This review for the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress is quite in-depth. So if you don’t have the time to read all the details then below for the main pros and cons that I came across:

Pros:

  • Luxurious five-layer design featuring high-tech foams and over 1,400 pocket springs
  • Good edge support and motion isolation
  • Above-average breathability for a foam mattress, thanks to its hybrid construction
  • 1 year (365 night) trial period and a 10-year warranty
  • Made in the UK with eco-friendly materials

Cons:

  • Can be expensive, especially at full price
  • May be too firm for some sleepers, especially those who prefer a softer mattress
  • Some off-gassing smell upon first unboxing
  • May not be ideal for heavier sleepers as it may not offer enough support for prolonged use

Eve Premium Hybrid design

As far as mattressses go, the Eve Premium Hybrid is actually quite innovative. The 5 layers of foam and pocket springs work together in harmony to give a pleasant and supportive sleeping surface, making for the best possible night’s rest regardless of the position that you prefer to sleep in. So how is it comprised? Let’s pull it apart to see.

The Eve Premium Hybird mattress is topped off with a washable cover that is quilted to give a sense of luxury. The cover is both antibacterial and antimicrobial thanks to the tiny silver strands that have been woven into the cover fabric. So this mattress quite literally has a silver lining. It’s interesting to note that Eve don’t count the cover as being one of the mattress layers. Although it makes perfect sense why that would be the case, Eve may have missed a trick there as mattress manufacturers seem to be using the layer count as a selling point for their products.

Underneath the cover the first layer is Eve’s very own “float foam” layer that includes active cooling. As soon as you lie on the mattress it’s this layer that is responsible for the pressure relief which feels quite soothing, and gives the mattress it’s overall soft feeling.

Beneath the floatfoam layer is a layer of memory foam. This layer also helps to reduce pressure by hugging your body and contouring to its shape. This layer is infused with graphite which actively removes the heat from your body if you get too hot. How cool is that?

Supporting layers

So we’ve done the soft part of the mattress, now it’s time for the support. This is where the third layer of the Eve Premium hybrid comes into play. This is another layer of much firmer foam which will help to keep your body posture correctly aligned after you sink into the softer foam layers above.

Next up is one of two layers of foam casing, which are designed with two things in mind. Firstly to protect the layer of mini springs underneath. This foam casing also adds some structural support to the mattress so you don’t get that rolling off feeling on the edge of the mattress. We have to say that this works quite well, because the Eve Premium Hybrid is 28cm deep but doesn’t have too much give at the sides.

The springs lie underneath the first layer of foam casing. All 1,400 of them. At just 12cm in height they can give a great coverage of support that will adapt to every movement during your sleep. And because springs allow air to travel in between them, it helps to make the entire mattress that much more breathable. This is great news for those who tend to sleep hot.

Foam casing for support

Underneath the layer of springs is the bottom layer of foam casing, which is also designed to protect the springs above as well as hold the whole mattress together. This keeps the mattress in one solid piece. This is the final official layer, which is then topped off (or bottomed off) with an ant-slip base which stops the whole thing from sliding around on your bed. Another feather that Eve have decided not to shout about even though they could technically count this as another layer.

All of the above help to make the Eve Premium Hybrid as well as give it one of it’s most notable qualities – breathability. Making a mattress breathable when foam is involved is not easy to achieve, but it would appear that Eve have cracked it. The airflow provided by the foam’s open cell structure aids in temperature regulation and keeps you from getting too hot in the middle of the night. Because of this, the mattress is ideal for those who would usually consider a memory foam mattress out of the question because they are hot sleepers.

Sleeper Types – Will It Suit You?

In all honesty, the Eve Premium Hybrid will benefit quite a few sleeping styles & types. Here’s my run-down:

  • Back sleepers like me will benefit from the firmer support of the mattress, which keeps the spine aligned and the pressure off, so you stay comfortably supported all night long.
  • If you tend to sleep hot, the top two layers of foam infused with graphite work to actively remove excess heat from your body, so you can stay cool and comfortable throughout the night.
  • The mattress also does a solid job of taking the pressure off your joints, making it suitable for people with joint pains.

On the other hand, here are some points to consider for those who might not benefit from the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress:

  • Stomach sleepers may not find the medium-firm support of the mattress to be sufficient, as it can cause discomfort and strain on the neck and spine.
  • If you prefer a very soft matterss, the medium level of support of the Eve Premium Hybrid may not be to your liking.
  • If you prefer a mattress with a lot of bounce, such as a traditional innerspring mattress, the hybrid design of the Eve Premium Hybrid may not be the best fit for you.

Is the Eve premium any good?

As mentioned earlier, the Eve Premium Hybrid has a quilted cover at the very top. This has silver stands woven in to make it antibacterial and antifungal. Another great feature is that you can unzip it and chuck it in the washing machine to clean it. This is a standard feature of many high-end mattresses so we did expect to see it anyway, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a very convenient feature indeed. So it scores points for that.

Where the mattress doesn’t score so highly is when it comes to motion transfer. Initially, the mattress scored extremely highly here, with all movement completely absorbed, but recently after only a couple of months I’ve noticed a little creeping in. It’s only a small amount that doesn’t affect my sleep, but it’s enough to notice your partner climbing out of bed so it’s definitely something to consider.

The edge support on the Eve Premium Hybrid is very good. You can sleep confidently right up to the sides without feeling as though you might roll off. This is something that many manufacturers can’t get right. It’s a good feature though because being able to sleep right to the edge of the mattress makes your bed feel so much bigger and gives you far more room. The mattress delivers the same level of support on the sides as it does in the middle, and even when sitting on the side of the bed you feel supported. How many mattresses can offer that?

The Eve Premium Hybrid mattress certainly looks premium. It almost seems a shame to put a sheet on it

A note on firmness

When it comes to mattresses nowadays, they are often measured by how soft or firm they are. Unfortunately there is no industry-recognised scale for firmness; one manufacturer’s idea of firm could equate to a form mattress from a different manufacturer.

So for the sake of this review we’re left with our own humble opinion. When it comes to mattress firmness, the Eve Premium Hybrid is right slap-bang in the middle for us. It provides a nice medium between firmness and softness, which they claim makes it an excellent choice for many different types of sleepers.

Edge Support

The edge support of the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress is fair, in my opinion. While the foam casing around the springs does help alleviate the feeling of rolling off the bed, it may not be as firm as some users would prefer given the level of support offered elsewhere by the mattress. However, it’s worth noting that edge support is a common issue with foam-based mattresses, and the Eve Premium Hybrid’s fair edge support is on par with other mattresses in its category.

What about heavier people?

Heavier sleepers may need a mattress with a better bolster level, as theat’ll make it easier to get in and out of bed, plus it’ll provide more support for the spine and helps to distribute the sleeper’s weight more evenly.

If you weigh more than average and are thinking about purchasing the Eve Premium Hybrid, my suggestion is that you should use the sleep trial to fully evaluate the mattress’s support capabilities. If not, no problem; Eve has a no-hassle return policy and will give you your money back.

What do others think?

If you look up reviews of the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress you’ll find a slew of almost-perfect scores. And there’s a reason for that: the reviews praise comfort, support, long-lasting build quality, temperature regulation, and quality feeling materials. In fact, on close looking at the thousands of reviews out there, the main gripe is the price of the mattress as well as the lack of sizes available.

Some people complained to me that the Eve Premium Hybrid lacks edge support. I have to say, I disagree with this as it’s one of the most supportive mattresses available at this price range. Some people also didn’t like what they described as a lingering chemical smell. The latter is an issue that comes with almost all memory foam mattresses, but it doesn’t seem to effect all mattresses or all people.

How much is the Eve Premium Hybrid?

Are you lying down? The Eve Premium Hybrid does generally come with a high price tag because at the end of the day it is a high-end, premium mattress (hence the name…!). See the table below for pricing:

SizePrice (RRP)
Double£1,099
King£1,299
Super King£1,399

So, as you can see the Eve Premium Hybrid is a bit more expensive than the ‘bed in a box’ companies like Emma, OTTY, and Simba sell. But if you look at the prices of other high-quality mattresses, you’ll see that this one is very competitively priced. It’s more affordable than the Brook + Wilde Lux and costs less than the Simba Hybrid Pro, which are both comparable mattresses in terms of design and quality.

However, you shouldn’t put too much stock in the RRP of a mattress as it’s highly unlikely that you’ll actually have to pay that much for any of these models. All the major mattress manufacturers, including Eve, regularly offer significant discounts on their products.

Sizing

As above, there are only three sizes available in the UK. Sadly, there’s no ‘single’ size which is sorely missing.

One reason for this is likely that these three sizes are the most popular and widely sold sizes in the UK, and Eve want to cater to the majority of customers.

UK Double135 x 190 cm4’6″ x 6’3″28cm/11″
UK King150 x 200 cm5’0″ x 6’6″28cm/11″
Super King180 x 200 cm6’0″ x 6’6″28cm/11″

What about the regular Eve Premium?

A good question! At first glance it would seem the only difference is the springs, but there’s more to it than that.

Here are the key differences between the Eve Premium and the Eve Premium Hybrid mattresses, both incredibly popular and sold in the UK:

  • Construction: The Eve Premium is an all-foam mattress, while the Eve Premium Hybrid features both foam and spring layers (hybrid). The Premium has 4 layers of foam, while the Premium Hybrid has 5 layers (3 foam and 2 springs).
  • Firmness: Both mattresses are rather firm, but the Eve Premium Hybrid may feel slightly firmer still, due to the added support from the spring layers. This is better suited for those with back pain.
  • Cooling: Both mattresses have cooling features, but the Eve Premium Hybrid’s spring layers allow for greater airflow and may provide slightly better cooling.
  • Weight and size: The Eve Premium is slightly lighter than the Eve Premium Hybrid and comes in one depth of 28cm, while the Eve Premium Hybrid ranges from 25-28cm deep.
  • Edge support: The Eve Premium Hybrid’s spring layers provide better edge support compared to the all-foam construction of the Eve Premium.
  • Price: The Eve Premium has a regular RRP of £999, while the Eve Premium Hybrid starts from £1,099. However it’s possible to reduce this price.

Other mattresses to consider

You’re spoilt for choice here, there’s a lot of competitors of the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress right now, and here are the  best ones:

  1. Simba Hybrid Pro: Like the Eve mattress, it’s a hybrid mattress that combines foam layers with pocket springs. However, the Simba Hybrid Pro also includes a layer of natural wool, which is designed to keep you cooler at night. The Simba Hybrid Pro notably doesn’t have washable covers though.
  2. Brook + Wilde Elite: This is also a hybrid mattress that includes foam layers and pocket springs. However, the Brook + Wilde Elite has an additional layer of mini pocket springs, which is designed to provide extra support. The Brook + Wilde Elite is priced similarly to the Eve Premium Hybrid.
  3. OTTY Hybrid: The OTTY Hybrid is a worthy contender here, it’s a hybrid mattress that includes foam layers and pocket springs, much like the Eve Premium Hybrid. However, it is a little thinner than the Eve mattress, at 25cm deep. The OTTY Hybrid is also a bit less expensive than the Eve.
  4. Emma Hybrid: Finally, the Emma Hybrid is another hybrid mattress tha’s hugely popular in the UK (so it includes both foam layers and pocket springs). Now, it is slightly thicker than the OTTY above, at 24cm deep but still not as deep as the Eve. Worth pointing out that, with a discount or sale (which Emma often have), it is usually less pricey than the Eve Premium Hybrid.

Delivery information and trial period

Like any reputable mattress manufacturer, Eve will deliver your Premium Hybrid mattress for free. If your mattress weighs under 40kg then it will be delivered to your front door (or the main door of the building if you live in a block of flats). If it weighs more then Eve will send a fully-trained 2 person delivery crew who will ensure it gets safely to a room of your choice. The mattress comes rolled and boxed, which means that you need to unpack it and then leave it for a few hours to expand to it’s usual size.

Eve are so confident that you’ll be happy with their Premium Hybrid mattress that they offer a 1 year trial period, which is by far the one of the longest available. So if during the first year of ownership of your mattress you decide it’s not for you then you can simply return it – for free. More information on the trial and delivery period can be found on the Eve website.

Eve Premium Hybrid: Verdict

And now, back to the original question: is the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress any good?

In my opinion the Eve Premium Hybrid Mattress does come highly recommended if you are in the market for a luxury hybrid that ticks all the boxes but doesn’t come with too many extras. Or in other words, it’s quite a simple and easy-to-understand mattress.

Some people might be turned off by the mattress’s harder feel, but to me it didn’t feel excessively hard. The description of medium-firm given by Eve is very accurate. Over the past few months, frankly I’ve slept better than ever on the Eve Premium Hybrid mattress.

It is supportive all the way to the edges and it also maintained a comfortable temperature throughout the night in testing,. One of the other features is the soft top layers. These all give superb cushioning for a ‘weightless’ feeling during sleep. Except for the slightly poorer than to be expected motion isolation, I have few criticisms. All in all the the Eve Premium Hybrid is a fantastic mid-range mattress if your budget allows for it.
