Construction and Materials
The Sabrina is a 12″ thick memory foam and Dunlop latex hybrid mattress made up of 4 layers
- 2″ Top cooling & comfort layer – This layer is made of 2″ of ventilated Dunlop latex, which is designed to provide responsiveness and bounce as well as aid with cooling the mattress.
- 1″ Cooling and support layer – This layer is made of 1″ of open cell air memory foam which provides contouring and hug to the sleeper, as well as aids in air circulation.
- 1″ Transition and cooling layer – This layer is made up of 1″ of gel-infused memory foam designed to provide transition between the top comfort layers and bottom support layer as well as aid in cooling.
- 8″ Bottom foundation layer – This layer is made of 8″ of responsive base support foam and acts as the foundation for the above foam layers and provides deep compression support.
The Sabrina mattress has a stretch knit zippered removable cover with dark blue polyester lining. The cover is soft and has an attractive pattern to it which gives the Sabrina an attractive look.
Firmness & Support
The Sabrina mattress is designed to appeal to a large number of sleepers with the “universal comfort” firmness option, which offers only one firmness option and is designed to appeal to a wide variety of sleepers.
We felt that the Sabrina mattress comes in at around a 6 on the firmness scale (10 being firmest).
The use of Dunlop latex foam in the top comfort layer provides good bounce and responsiveness and some pushback to your body when lying on it, which also prevents you from sinking into the foam layers underneath. It also aids in helping to cool the mattress as well.
As a heavier sleeper, at 230 lbs, the 12″ thick Sabrina mattress does a good job at supporting my heavier weight quite well and doesn’t cause me to “bottom out” the mattress that some thinner mattresses do. This is important for heavier sleepers as well as couples sharing a bed.
The buoyant Avena foam used in the top comfort layer supported Kaye’s lighter weight quite well as she did not sink down as much through the layers compared to me.
Support was very good for both of us, preventing any pressure point pain in our shoulders or hips which is quite important for us as side sleepers.
Universal comfort is not for everyone and especially couples with different firmness preferences but the Sabrina mattress does a great job at supporting both of our different weights and firmness preferences.
The Sabrina mattress has a very soft and comfortable exterior and when you lie down on it the Dunlop latex and gel infused memory foam layers work together to provide a balanced and comfortable sleeping surface.
The top Dunlop latex foam layer is a more responsive type of material, it prevents you from sinking down too much or being “stuck in foam” like many memory foam mattresses can do. This also makes it great for late night couple’s fun as well! 😉
The Sabrina mattress seemed to adapt to us the longer we slept on it, softening up under my heavier weight but remaining buoyant and responsive for Kaye. Kaye, who weighs half my weight, doesn’t like to “sink down” into the depression my weight often causes in some mattresses. The Sabrina does an excellent job at minimizing this.
Both myself and Kaye felt the Sabrina mattress slept very comfortable especially given the affordable price, which was something that surprised us given the materials and level of quality of the mattress.
The Sabrina mattress did not sleep noticeably hot for us, which as a couple is a very important consideration.
The breathable cover combined with the Dunlop latex foam in the comfort layer and the gel-infused memory foam used in the transition layer of the Sabrina mattress all did a good job of keeping heat from being trapped beneath our bodies and the mattress.
This is a big deal for us, as we live in Texas and when sharing a bed often end up sweating with some poorly designed memory foam mattresses.
There was no noticeable heat buildup or stickiness that is a common complaint with many memory foam mattresses historically, so we give the Sabrina mattress thumbs up for not sleeping hot.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Sinkage is very dependent on weight, which is something we preach regularly. With my heavier weight I tend to experience this problem quite a bit with thinner and less densely constructed mattresses. Many memory foam and hybrid mattresses suffer from sinkage while sitting near the edge but less so when lying down, and as mentioned previously.
Thankfully, the construction of the Sabrina mattress prevented this from occurring with us, with the latex and foam design providing support and buoyancy to us when sleeping. Even more expensive mattresses cause this to happen with us, which is something we don’t like at all.
When sitting up in the bed, my weight did not cause me to compress to the bottom of the bed too much through the support layers which was very encouraging.
Given that I am a large individual (230lbs.) that can happen quite often, and many competing mattresses can’t handle this weight and don’t deliver the same results. The 12″ thick Sabrina supports my weight quite well, as well as our combined couple weight on the mattress.
As for motion transfer, Kaye and I experienced quite a low amount of motion transfer on the Sabrina. There was none of the “bouncing” or “rolling in” to my heavier side which has been a problem with many memory foam mattresses for us. There was some bounce and response from the Dunlop latex foam layer, but it wasn’t too much.
The responsiveness of the top comfort layer did a good job with focusing movement in a small area and did not transmit motion through the entire bed when one of us got in or out of the bed, which was better than expected and something that we look for.
Smell / Off-Gassing
The Sabrina mattress had an average amount of odor or off-gassing when opened, as to be expected for a mostly foam compressed mattress. Any odor that was present dissipated within 24 hours, which is normal for beds that are wrapped in plastic and compressed and boxed for shipment.
Primary provides many of the same type customer service aspects as many other online “Bed in A Box” mattress retailers. This includes:
- Free Shipping – ships fast usually within 24 hours
- 10 Year Warranty
- Made in the USA
The Sabrina mattress is priced very reasonably compared to other bed in the box mattresses, coming in at $469 for a queen which is a GREAT price for a 12″ hybrid latex / foam mattress.
The Sabrina mattress does a great job at providing a universal comfort mattress at a great price with using quality materials compared to similar mattresses in the space.
The Sabrina mattress uses very high quality materials including Dunlop latex foam and gel-infused memory foam which delivers a comfortable and supportive night sleep at an extremely good value compared to most mattresses on the market today.
The 12″ mattress provides great comfort and support and is a great choice for couples such as us with rather unequal weight distribution. We experienced minimal sinkage and not much motion transfer when sleeping together which is important for couples and especially ones with a big difference in weight.
The Sabrina mattress is very impressive and given the level of quality is something we often see with mattresses costing much more.
We hope this review of the Sabrina mattress helps you out in your next purchase of a new mattress!
