Is Amerisleep’s AS2 Hybrid the Best Mattress for Heavy People?


Finding the perfect mattress can be difficult, especially for bigger people. Mattress manufacturer Amerisleep is helping ease that pain with the release of their new AS2 Hybrid mattress.

What’s So Great About the AS2 Hybrid Mattress?

Hybrid mattresses are a solid choice for someone who likes a mattress with more bounce, comfort, and stability. The Amerisleep AS2 Hybrid mattress combines layers of foam with a pocket-coil spring base. The springs add more lift and bounce beneath the contouring foam top. The high-density pocket-coil springs also help minimize motion transfer. This means if you move around at night, your partner will be less likely to feel it on their side of the bed.

Designed for a Better Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is about more than comfort and stability. For bigger people who tend to be hot sleepers, managing heat is vital. Amerisleep uses a cool, ultra-breathable mattress cover to help with overheating. The company makes all its mattresses with Bio-Pur, a partially plant-based memory foam designed to enhance support, responsiveness, and temperature regulation. This makes the mattress better conform to your body when you’re on it, while guarding against the sag that can wear into a mattress after prolonged use.

Supportive, yet comfy

A unique benefit of the AS2 Hybrid mattress is its targeted support. Amerisleep designed the pocketed coil system to assist with healthy alignment. The coils under your torso are firmer to keep you lifted, helping to prevent the sinkage you’ve probably experienced with other mattresses. Under the shoulders and hips, though, these coils have more give to allow for better pressure relief to prevent pain points. The materials in the AS2 are engineered to help you wake up in the morning feeling refreshed instead of achy and sore.

How it Compares to Other Mattresses for Heavy People

Many mattresses made for heavy people are extra firm, and not everyone loves that. The Amerisleep AS2 is designed to be medium-firm which is soft enough to conform to your body. If you’re moving from a standard mattress that has a lot of give and want to increase the amount of support without cranking up the firmness too much, the AS2 Hybrid is worth a look. Amerisleep makes mattresses that cover 5 different levels of firmness, which you can see here.

Here’s a Plus Size Person’s Take on the Amerisleep

The big question: is the Amerisleep AS2 Hybrid mattress a good option for plus size people? Earlier this year, we had one sent to photographer Abbie Rudolph whose old mattress needed to be replaced. She’s been sleeping on the AS2 for months now, and she’s sharing her thoughts.

On Stability:

“The mattress is dense and supportive. It’s solid, but soft. I don’t feel like I’m stiff as a board, but I feel like it gives where my curves are, but I still feel supported. I can move around, but nothing else on the bed moves. It doesn’t feel like I’m squishing the mattress to death. The mattress still feels the same after months of use, and I think it will still feel good this time next year.”

On Comfort:

“I prefer a softer mattress. Other [mattresses for plus size people] feel less giving and more stiff, which makes me feel straight as a board, and I don’t like that. I don’t want one that is squishy and I don’t like super hard, so this one is great for me.”

On Firmness:

“I feel supported, and I think the AS2 Hybrid is a softer, more plush mattress than some others out there, but it’s made to hold up. I’m super happy with it, and it’s better than my last mattress, which wasn’t a hybrid. This is my first long-term experience with a hybrid – it’s comfortable and I have no complaints.”

On Quality:

“It’s a very good mattress, and it’s affordable. I’d say it feels like it’s on the upper end because it feels like more expensive mattresses I’ve slept on, but it costs less than those.”
