Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid Driftwood Bay series is available in a Firm version and a Plush model catering to the needs of back & stomach sleepers and side sleepers, respectively.

Offering a selection of Firm or Plush firmness options, it caters to your individual sleep preferences, accommodating back, stomach, and side sleepers.


Harmony Hybrid is designed with a cooling cover to wick away moisture, ensuring a sweat-free and comfortable night’s sleep. The addition of breathable GelTouch® foam enhances the airflow through the mattress, while the pocketed coils facilitate air circulation, preventing heat retention which may be uncomfortable for hot sleepers.

Comfort & Pressure Relief

The Harmony Hybrid mattress incorporates body-contouring foams that aid in pressure relief and comfort. Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™️ Memory Foam contours the body curves to relieve stress from the pressure points. The Plush model gently cradles the shoulder and hips of side sleepers, while the Firm version gives adequate support and an uplifted feel to back and stomach sleepers.

Back Support

Good back support is essential for a night of restful sleep. Harmony Hybrid’s Precision Support System™ with 875 Series Pocketed Coil® Technology provides support throughout the body from head to toe, thus ensuring total comfort and complete rest. The coils also help to maintain spinal alignment, needed for a comfortable sleeping experience.

Q2. How Firm Is Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid  Mattress?

The Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid collection has two offerings in firmness: Firm and Plush. The Firm model gives a sleeping on-top-of-the-bed feel, while the Plush caters to side sleepers by gently cradling the pressure points, thus alleviating aches and pains.

Further, recycled plastic waste from the ocean makes it a sustainable bed loved by eco-friendly shoppers.

Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid mattress is recommended for those who

  • Prefer eco-conscious and sustainable beds
  • Are hot sleepers and prefer added cooling features in a mattress
  • Want varied firmness options

Q2. Who should avoid the Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid mattress collection?

Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid mattress is not recommended for those who

  • Want a durable and long-lasting mattress


Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid, unlike the Beautyrest® Harmony collection, has only two firmness choices: Firm and Plush.

Material & Construction

Q1. What is the unique technology, design, and materials used in the construction of the Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress?

The Harmony Hybrid mattress uses recycled plastic bottles from oceans to create a soft sleeping surface. Premium foams and individually wrapped coils comprise the comfort layer and support system, making a luxurious bed with a price range of $899 – $1499.

Let’s discuss the mattress’ unique design and construction features.

  • Layer 1: The mattress features a cover made of moisture-wicking fabric that enables a cool and comfortable sleep all night. Plastic waste converted into sustainable material gives a soft sensation upon lying on the bed.
  • Layer 2: The comfort layer of Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid incorporates Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam, which is specially designed to conform to your body curves, thus relieving tension from the critical pressure points. The gentle cuddle of the foam prevents aches and pains from developing in the hips, shoulders, and lumbar region, ensuring you wake up every morning refreshed.
  • Layer 3: Beneath the ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam lies the GelTouch® Foam, which further facilitates pressure relief, comfort, cool sleep, and breathability.
  • Layer 4: The base of the mattress comprises 875 Series Pocketed Coil® Technology, a single-stranded coil design that provides support throughout the body in all sleeping positions. The coils being individually wrapped help in isolating motion, thus helping partners to sleep together without any disturbance.

Q1. How Would You Rate Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress From A Repositioning and Responsiveness Perspective? 


The Harmony Hybrid mattress, made from a blend of foam and coils, offers advantages in terms of repositioning and responsiveness. The coils, known for their quick response and bounce, make it easy to shift positions on the mattress. Additionally, it offers a balance between contouring support and firmness by conforming to the body’s unique curves, thereby aiding in repositioning.


Hybrid mattresses are more responsive than memory foam mattresses. The presence of coils allows quicker response to changes in movement or pressure. While changing sides or adjusting your sleeping positions Harmony Hybrid promptly adapts, minimizing the feeling of being trapped in the mattress.

Notably, the Firm model offers higher responsiveness than the Plush option. So, if you are a combination sleeper who frequently changes positions, it is less likely that your partner will be disturbed by your movements.

Comfort, Back Support, Pressure Relief


Q2. How Would You Rate Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress For Providing Comfort And Pressure Relief To Sleepers? 

Beautyrest®Hybrid Harmony is a comfortable mattress with adequate support from head to toe. Two memory layers in the comfort system, including Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam and GelTouch® Foam, combine to offer critical support in the body areas that need the most. ActiveResponse™ Foam contours the body’s natural curves, preventing pressure from building up under the shoulders, hips, and lower back, while GelTouch® Foam enhances comfort and cooling properties.

GelTouch® Foam is designed to conform to the body’s contours, which helps distribute body weight evenly and reduce pressure points.

Cooling & Temperature Control


Q3. How Would You Rate The Cooling And Overall Temperature Control Characteristics Of Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid  Mattress?

Hybrid mattresses regulate temperature better than foam mattresses and Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid is no exception. Its moisture-wicking cover allows you to sleep fresh and sweat-free all night. GelTouch® foam in the comfort layer incorporates gel-infused particles or beads. It helps dissipate heat, promoting a cooler sleep environment.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed


Q4. Does Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattresses Provide Reasonable Motion Isolation When Sharing A Bed With Others?

Memory foam mattresses generally perform better than hybrid collections in isolating motion. Though Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid has a pocketed coil support system, it performs reasonably well in isolating motion. The single-stranded design encased in fabric reacts individually and does not transfer motion to the neighboring coils, thus isolating motion. Furthermore, multiple foam layers above the coils absorb much of the motion, so you can share your bed with a partner, and both can sleep well without disturbing one another.

Edge Support


Q5. How would you rate the edge support of Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattresses?

Edge support becomes important if you want to use the entire bed surface. Harmony Hybrid features memory foam and single-stranded pocketed coils, as already discussed. This combination offers average edge support, and you may roll off while lying near the end of the bed.

The Plush model being soft will compress if you sit near the edges, but the Firm version will offer some resistance. So, it is a preferred option if you are sharing your bed with a partner.

Beautyrest Black and Beautyrest Black Hybrid are the best in edge support with triple-stranded coils that make not only the support system but also the edges robust. With strong edges, these two beds are the most preferred options for couples, who can use the entire bed surface without the fear of falling off.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

The Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid collection comes in two firmness options Firm and Plush, as discussed above. Let’s discuss how the two versions are suitable for people sleeping in different positions.

Side Sleepers

Sleeping on the side is very common and is generally comfortable if you don’t have sore shoulder muscles as this sleep position puts stress on the shoulders, which can further elevate the soreness. To avoid this, your mattress must adequately cushion your shoulder’s pressure points.

The Plush Harmony Hybrid model is a good choice if you are a side sleeper, as the memory foam top gently cushions your neck and shoulders, preventing the build-up of excess pressure underneath when you sleep.

Back Sleepers

Sleeping on the back (supine position) is considered naturally healthy as the spine remains stretched out and is beneficial if you are suffering from lumbar spinal pain. A supportive mattress that prevents the body from sinking deep benefits back sleepers. The Firm Harmony Hybrid model offers back sleepers adequate support with an uplifted feel, maintaining the spinal alignment. However, the Plush model will not provide good support for back sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers, like back sleepers, need a firm and supportive mattress as they put maximum pressure on the lumbar region. Sleeping in this position puts pressure on the spine, leading to pain upon waking in the morning.

Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid Plush is not ideal if you are a stomach sleeper, as your body will sink into the soft memory foam, leading to aches and pains. However, the Firm model will support lightweight to average-weight stomach sleepers, and heavyweight individuals must look for other Beautyrest models.

Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers shift positions during the night so they can select between the two different firmness options. Because they often switch, either option will provide the necessary support. The ActiveResponse Memory Foam in the comfort layer, conforms to the body’s contours regardless of the sleeping position. Lightweight sleepers will prefer the Plush model, while those of average or heavier weight will sleep better on the Firm version.
