- You don’t like the bounce and responsiveness of hybrid mattresses – The Helix Twilight Luxe is a hybrid mattress constructed of multiple foam layers and pocketed coils which work together to give this mattress a lot of bounce and responsiveness.
Construction and Materials
The Helix Twilight Luxe mattress is a 14″ hybrid mattress made up of gel memory foam, 1000 + pocketed coils, and foam and it consists of the following layers.
- Comfort Layer – This layer is made of a high-density Gel memory foam designed to cushion your body and provide support for perfect comfort.
- Support Layer – This layer is made of Memory Plus Foam, designed to provide pressure relief.
- Transition Layer – This layer is made of high-density High-Grade Polyfoam, designed to provide ergonomic support, contour to your body and serve as a transition layer between the top comfort foam layers and firmer coils bellow. It also allows a seamless progression of your body weight into the mattress.
- Zoned Body Shape Layer – This layer is made of individually wrapped coils that serve to cradle and support your body while sleeping and limit excessive motion transfer. They provide the right amount of support to those areas of your body where it is needed most. It offers a softer feel under your shoulders and firmer under hips to cradle your body, align your spine and provide advanced lumbar and edge support.
- Base Layer – This layer is made of DuraDense high density support foam that serves as the foundation and support for the mattress and increases its durability and stability.
The cover of the Helix Twilight Luxe mattress is extremely soft quilted premium pillow top made up of high-density polyurethane foam.
It increases the overall comfort of this mattress and the Ultra Breathable Tencel technology that it incorporates helps increase the airflow through the mattress and keeps you cool all night long.
Firmness & Support
The Helix Twilight Luxe is designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers and we felt it to be a medium firm mattress, falling somewhere around a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest).
The company has their own firmness scale and they rate this mattress a bit firmer, in a range you can see below.
A comfortable pillow top was smooth to the touch, and combined with the gel memory foam comfort layer below it offered a really cushioning feel. Together, they allowed me to sink into a mattress to a certain degree and provided excellent pressure relief without making me feel stuck in foam.
The slightly firmer support and transition layers beneath with the pocketed coil layer did an excellent job of providing extraordinary support to those areas of my body where I needed it most.
Zoning technology used in the coil layer offered a softer feel under my shoulders and firmer under my hips which made this mattress perfect for side sleeping. In addition these layers lifted my heavy weight with ease and helped distribute it evenly across the bed.
The Helix Twilight Luxe had just enough give in the comfort layers to mold to my shoulders and hips and enough firmness necessary if I turn to my back.
As Kaye generally prefers firmer mattresses than I do, and weighs almost half my weight, she found this mattress to be of a perfect firmness.
Just like the Helix Midnight and the previous models we have reviewed, it did a great job of meeting our firmness and support needs and provided us with what each of us enjoy in the same bed.
The Helix Twilight Luxe mattress is extremely comfortable. Its unique construction and quality materials all worked together really well to provide a medium feel that we like and a perfect balance of comfort and support.
The premium quilted pillow top increased the overall comfort of this mattress. Although it offered a slightly firmer feel than the Helix Midnight Luxe pillow top, it allowed me to sink into it quite a bit. It also perfectly molded to my hips and shoulders, and eliminated any possibility of the appearance of pressure points.
The mattress has a nice degree of responsiveness coming from its pocketed coil layer which, when combined with other the firmer transition and support layer prevents you from sinking too deep into the mattress and feeling enveloped by it.
This also facilitates moving around in bed during the night and makes this mattress perfect for sex.
The Helix Twilight Luxe mattress does an excellent job at sleeping cool due to its unique pocketed coil layer that allows the air to circulate freely through the mattress and prevent the build up of heat.
In addition, this Helix mattress, like other Helix mattresses, features a special Ultra Breathable Tencel technology that increases airflow through the top of the mattress in order to create a pleasant sleeping surface and keep you cool during the night.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Helix Twilight Luxe does a great job with minimizing sinkage, especially when compared to most other hybrid mattresses we have reviewed.
Sinkage and motion transfer are largely weight dependent and the fact that I weigh around 230 lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on a mattress.
It is true that I compressed the pillow top and comfort layer beneath it quite a bit, but the firmer support and transition layers combined with the pocketed coils prevented me from sinking further into the mattress and feeling enveloped by it.
These layers lifted my heavy weight with ease and distributed it evenly across the bed while the zoned technology of the pocketed coil layer provided just the right amount of support to those areas of my body where I needed it most.
Kaye felt it did the same for her and perfectly supported her lighter weight and also prevented her from rolling into me which is often the case with lower quality mattresses due to our weight differences.
She also didn’t experience the common feel of “sinking into a hole” which resulted in peaceful and truly enjoyable night’s for both.
Edge support is excellent with this mattress and better than with many other beds we have reviewed so far due to the quality pocketed coils used in its construction.
I compressed its pillow top and comfort layer to a certain degree when when sitting and lying near the edge, but the firmer support and transition layers, as well as the pocketed coil layer, supported my heavy weight and prevented me from sinking too much and bottoming out. We also didn’t experience any rolling off the edges sensation.
Smell / Off-Gassing
This high quality mattress gets high marks in this category as well. It didn’t have much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box. Its hybrid design significantly reduced the amount of of-gassing and any smell that was present dissipated within a few hours.
