What’s it like to sleep on Hugo mattress?
The Hugo’s combination of latex and foam creates a optimum firmness for a variety of sleepers. It’s softer than many other memory foam mattresses due to its bouncy latex and transition foam. While no firmness fits every person, the Hugo is a hit among partner and solo sleepers. If you’re switching to Hugo from a spring mattress, you’ll have to adjust to the firmer feel. Coming from an all memory foam mattress, you’ll notice Hugo is softer with a little bounce.
Since this mattress has more cushion than all-memory foam designs, it’s better for side and stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers are not always comfortable on memory foam mattresses because the firm surface hurts sensitive parts. However, Hugo sleepers feel the latex before the memory foam. This material has more give and is comfortable for stomach sleepers. Side sleepers also like the latex because it instantly takes pressure off of shoulders and hips. Then, the memory foam slowly shapes to fill in the gaps.
While several back sleepers enjoy the Hugo, it may not be for everyone. It may be too soft for sleepers who need a firm surface without much give. Because the Hugo is thinner, it also lacks additional comfort and support layers. For heavier sleepers, it may not offer enough support no matter the position.
It’s common to sink when sitting on the edge of a Hugo mattress. Foam designs are not known for edge support, as the compressed foam doesn’t rebound like springs. That being said, the Hugo has better support than other memory foam designs because of the latex. It gives an extra bounce and will naturally spring as you get out of bed. While it may not be the best for people who need a lot of bounce to stand up, it does offer more support than an all-memory foam mattress.
Don’t worry about waking up a partner when moving around on a Hugo. The foam layers are great at stopping motion transfer. There is more bounce than on a mattress without latex, but it’s rarely enough to disturb a partner. Or pets that jump up and down throughout the night.
