Recently, we dived deep into the entire iComfort line of mattresses. Today, we’ll be lasering in specifically on the Serta iComfort Hybrid.
Serta is a direct-to-consumer bedding and mattress company with a varied line of memory foam, innerspring, and hybrid mattresses.
Who Should Buy The Serta iComfort Hybrid
- If you have an energetic life in the bedroom, the edge support of these mattresses allows you to move around safely
- You have a decent choice of firmness settings at your disposal
- If you struggle with DIY, you’ll appreciate the free White Glove delivery that comes with all online orders
Who Should Avoid The Serta iComfort Hybrid
- The lifespan of iComfort mattresses from Serta leaves something to be desired
- Bargain hunters looking for a refund if they’re unhappy with the mattress won’t appreciate being forced to pay shipping costs
- Some mattresses have a very limited trial period so this is not ideal if you’re undecided on the mattress in question
- Anyone working to a tight budget could find comparable hybrid mattresses for less.
If you’re not put off by those flaws, read on to see how the Serta iComfort Hybrid foam mattress is made.
- Comfort Layers
- Support Layers
As with all Serta mattresses, you’re left in the dark if you’re hoping to find out what the cover is made from.
The composition of the comfort layers of the Serta iComfort hybrid mattresses are composed of four components but the exact make-up differs according to the mattress thickness.
You get 2” to 4.5” of polyfoam on top, depending on the mattresses 10.5” to 16.25” thick. Next comes some gel polyfoam, although Serta don’t disclose the thickness. 1” to 2” of standard memory foam is up next followed by 0.5” to 1” of gel memory foam.
With the Serta iComfort hybrid mattresses from 12” to 16.25” thick, you find 2” to 4.5” of polyfoam, 2” of memory foam, 0.5” to 3” of gel memory foam, and mini-coils to round out.
The support layers of all the Serta iComfort hybrid mattresses are made from pocketed coils.
Firmness and Feel
The firmness of these mattresses spans from soft (3) through to firm (8).
This, indeed, is one of the key selling points of this hybrid line. There’s something for everyone whether you want a super-soft and plush sleeping environment, or a much harder, firmer mattress for maximum support.
Serta iComfort hybrid mattresses start at10” thick while the higher-profile models are fully 16.25” thick. This makes them ideal for anyone who has problems getting in and out of bed.

We purchased a mattress 2 years ago and it is sagging on one side. We are not large people…. The inspector who doesn’t work for them admitted that it was bad. In fact they no longer make this mattress. Luckily the vendors are rectifying the situation. However, our story is not unique.. Person after person Facebook complain of the same thing and they deleted my comments and blocked, me from commenting.

We purchased our Serta iComfort Temptouch from Mattress Firm back in 9/17. We put in a warranty claim 1/20 for sleeping in indentations with a hill in the middle. It is uncomfortable. It is awful. We were denied because the pics of the measurements meet the mfg’s standards. OH COME ON! We are paying on this mattress for the next few years and it is a piece of **. I feel we have been screwed out of our money and left paying on a bed we despise and is greatly uncomfortable. Serta needs to get a reality check and realize that when people spend their hard earned money on something they expect a little consideration, especially when they are left with aching backs and necks every morning.

Bought an Icomfort Collection King Size bed. Purchased 03/2012. It has sunk almost a 1/2″. When you lay on it, it sinks and huge hump in middle. Called Serta and they said it has to be 1 1/2 depth. On website it says 3/4″. Trying to deal with Serta is a nightmare. Stay away from SERTA.
The Serta iComfort line of hybrid mattresses are more expensive than much of the competition without any real increase in performance.
While these are not exactly bad mattresses, we can’t in any conscience recommend them strongly when you can find many similar mattresses at much keener prices.
