Dynasty Mattress has recently entered the market for direct-to-consumer mattresses sold online. Most of the mattresses produced by Dynasty Mattress are composed entirely of foam, but the company also produces a hybrid mattress that is the focus of this review.
Some of the key strengths of the Dynasty hybrid mattress include:
- Extremely low price point for a hybrid mattress: for people who want a hybrid mattress, it is extremely rare to find an option with this type of design for under $500. For people on a tight budget, this is a huge benefit to the Dynasty hybrid.
- Sufficient thickness of comfort layer: for low-cost hybrids or innerspring mattresses, we often see thin comfort layers. That’s not the case with the Dynasty hybrid, which has a combined 3” of memory foam above the innerspring support core.
Potential drawbacks for the Dynasty hybrid mattress include:
- Availability may be limited: at the time of writing this review, this mattress was only available in two sizes. Availability may fluctuate, making this less applicable to customers who need a mattress of a specific size.
- Sleep trial is not risk-free: if you want a return, you are responsible for the cost of shipping the mattress back to Dynasty. Depending on shipping method, this could potentially take a huge cut out of the money that you get refunded.

Dynasty is still relatively new to the online, direct-to-consumer mattress industry, and as a result, we do not have enough data to be able to rate their customer service reputation; however, Dynasty has been in business since 2011 and has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
As a hybrid mattress, this offering from Dynasty Mattress can offer a combination of both support and bounce. At its price point, it represents a solid option for people who want some of the benefits of both an innerspring and memory foam mattress.
This mattress can provide support in two ways. First, the innerspring support core, with pocketed coils, gives a base level of cushioning to the body. Pocketed coils have more responsiveness than older models of innerspring coils.
Second, the top 3” of memory foam provides more direct support for the body’s main pressure points. Memory foam compresses in response to the amount of weight that is applied to it, which means that it can give more cushioning to the body parts that need it most.
The combination of these two components helps make this mattress one that is likely to offer a solid level of support for most sleepers.
The Dynasty hybrid has memory foam with a density of 4 PCF in its top comfort layer. This should help this layer last longer than a lower-density memory foam. This also reduces pressure on the layers beneath, including the innerspring support core.
Because Dynasty is still relatively new to this direct-to-consumer market online, we have limited data to be able to truly know how well this mattress will last. But we expect that most customers should be able to use it for 6-8 years or longer without significant issues or degradation.
This mattress is only offered in one firmness level, which is Medium Firm. On the typical firmness scale, this equates to a 5-6.
Memory foam is generally considered to be the best material available for motion isolation because of its strong contouring properties. While the innerspring core will provide some bounce that would ordinarily increase the propensity for motion transfer, the 3” of memory foam above the coils should be sufficient to create a disturbance-free night’s sleep for most customers.
The memory foam component of this mattress will give off a slight smell when the mattress is first removed from the box. This smell does not pose any health risk and should not last more than a few hours or at the longest, a few days.
Sleeping hot can be an issue anytime that memory foam forms the comfort layer of a mattress. As the foam tailors to a person’s body, it creates more foam-body contact, which can prevent airflow and lead to overheating. While the bounce provided by the innerspring coils and the gel-infused foam should help add some resiliency to the mattress that can combat this sinking effect, customers who are highly susceptible to sleeping hot may prefer a mattress made without memory foam.
Sinking into the mattress, which can occur with memory foam, may have the effect of inhibiting motion on the mattress and as a result, posing a barrier to sex. The Dynasty hybrid, with its 6.5” innerspring layer, should offer sufficient bounce to prevent this from being a problem for most customers. Shoppers who are focused on finding the best mattress for sex, though, are likely to prefer a latex mattress.
