Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress Review
This post was last updated on July 4th, 2019
Overview: The Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is probably the top pick when it comes to the Nest Bedding series. As the name implies, it features both foam and pocket coils, making the better of the two worlds to form a supreme sleeping experience.
The Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is great if you
Prefer a foam mattress yet free of the “sink deep into” feeling – the combination of foam and pocket spring coils, provides for the ideal support and comfort and still doesn’t feel too much stuck in the mattress.
Seek better edge support – the pocket coils on the perimeter of the Alexander Signature Hybrid, facilitate for enhanced edge support in comparison to other memory foam mattresses.
Prefer sleeping cool – This is definitely a feature you get with this mattress thanks to the copper-infused foam and the coils. So, there is no need to worry about heat retention if you choose this particular mattress as it has enhanced features for improved breathability and airflow.
The Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is not ideal if you
So, what is the Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress made of?
Taking a closer look at the Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress, we can see it is a 13 inches thick mattress, which is 3 inches more than industry standards.
Top layer: 2-inch 1.5 lb density Quilted Foam with a stretch fabric cover for better airflow and pressure relief.
Second layer: 2-inch 3.5 lb density Copper-Infused Gel Foam which caters for the much-needed comfort, cooling, and support.
Third layer: 2-inch 1.8 lb density SmartFlow Foam for additional cooling effect and extra support.
Fourth layer: 7-inch 5 Zoned Edge Support Pocket Coils acting as the foundation which caters for all the support for the mattress overall.
Highlight: The copper-infused foam – also used in Layla mattress – is what stands out in this mattress. Apart from keeping you cool, this material has another beneficial attribute; it has an antibacterial component to it. This is one reason why you will notice it is used in hospitals and schools for door handles.
Added advantage: The mattress comes with additional edge-support pocket coils which enhance edge support.
For the time being, the cover cannot be removed to see the inside foam and pocket coils, which means it is not machine washable. The tufted top featured on the cover implies you will sink into the mattress quite a bit.back to menu ↑
The Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress appears to sleep really comfortably. It has the right amount of bounce due to the coils which combined with the foam layer on top, provide for the contouring and hugging of the natural curves of the body.
As it is anticipated from a mattress made with memory foam, after some time sleeping in this mattress the bodies mold to the memory foam, yet you don’t get the unpleasant “stuck into” or trapped in the foam feel.
The 7-inch thick coils wrapped in the bottom layer of the mattress give just the right amount of bounce required to turn and toss at night while catering for heavier sleepers.
The Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is perfect if you have an active love life since it offers the kind of response and bouncy effect you need.

The Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is unique in that it combines pocket coils and foam. The mattress has a type of feel that resembles that of a foam mattress rather than an innerspring mattress. Although it used to offer only one firmness option, the company now offers two firmness options for this model, one medium at a 5-6 out of 10, and one luxury firm at an 8 out of 10 (with 10 being the firmest in the firmness scale).
Of the notable features is how the mattress quickly regains shape, unlike in a traditional memory foam mattress.

How does the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress handle support?
Based on our testing, it does a great job and definitely passes the test. In contrast to other memory foam mattresses, this mattress provides excellent support regardless of your sleeping position.
Whether you are a heavy sleeper or sleep with a partner, the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress with its 13 inches thick construction will offer a very supportive sleeping experience.
Unlike other mattresses, you won’t feel more of the support layers but the top comfort ones, so no need to worry if you are heavy or overweight. That said, the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress will support equally well a lightweight sleeper.
All things considered, this mattress does a great job as far as edge support. There is no chance you will sink to the floor with the Alexander Hybrid Mattress.
The secret is in the bottom layer which functions like a box spring, keeping the edge of the bed firm enough not to sink and thus avoid the unpleasant sagging feel. This is due to the pocket springs around the perimeter which also give a feel of a bigger mattress, making it ideal for couples.
Impressively enough, our testing showed that the edge support for a person weighting over 200 pounds is equally great.
Value for money
The Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is one reasonably priced product for what it has to offer in terms of premium characteristics and construction.
Here’s an overview of the pricing depending on size:
|California King (both sides)||$1499|
|California King (one side)||$899|
Doesn’t Sleep Hot
When it comes to sleeping cool, this mattress definitely performs great. Thanks to the 3.5 lb density Copper-Infused Memory Foam, the mattress dissipates heat easily adding to the overall improved performance which is common for innerspring mattresses.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Compared to other mattresses reviewed, the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress performs well in terms of sinkage. Although this is weight dependent, overall our impression was that there is not as much sinkage feel.
On the other hand, the mattress does not handle motion transfer as exceptionally. This is not to suggest it has an awful lot of motion movement when one partner moves, yet it is visible and you can feel it, in particular, if you are lighter and your partner who tosses and turns is heavier.
Similar to all other mattresses of the Nest Bedding line, there is only minimal off-gassing when unpacking the Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress. On top of this, the mattress uses only CertiPUR-US approved Foam and Support Base Foams. The hybrid coil/foam structure minimizes the level of odor which is common in foam mattresses.
The Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is manufactured in the USA with eco-friendly high-quality materials according to industry standards. According to our data, it scores much higher than average in owner satisfaction and is becoming increasingly more popular.back to menu ↑
The Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress is hand made in the USA, so it takes 4-5 days just to make it and following this another 1-5 business days to get to your doorstep.
Standard shipping is free of charge within the continental USA, however, you can choose expedited shipping – email the company with your request before placing the order- at an additional cost.
If you are located in Hawaii and Alaska, it is still possible to order the mattress yet shipping will come at an additional cost of $150. Asking for a quote first is probably the best idea before ordering.
When it arrives, you get an 18 x 18 x 48 inch box, however, depending on the size, you might receive a box of up to 80” long. As it is rather hefty at about 80 pounds, you will need an extra set of hands or two to move it.
The Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress offers an amazing 20 years warranty, one of the best in the industry, and similar to Ghostbed and Live and Sleep mattress. It is obvious that the company values their product and are confident of what it has to offer.
In the unlikely case, you don’t like the product, the company offers 100 days sleep trial which means that if you are not pleased with your new mattress, you can ask for a full refund within 100 days from the day of delivery.
Based on our research, the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Hybrid Mattress’ 20 years Warranty receives a quite high, above-average rating and it thought to be excellent according to consumers.
