In this OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress Review, we will go over a budget hybrid option from OTTY.

What does this mean when it comes to the OTTY Aura Mattress?
We will get to the specifics of the OTTY Aura Mattress in each section of this Review. Join us as we take an in-depth look at the OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress.
If you are someone who prefers their dessert first, then you can always jump to the SUMMARY AT THE END.
OTTY Aura Mattress Construction
When it’s not broke, don’t fix it! At least that’s what it looks like with the OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress. OTTY has used the blueprint of their OTTY Original and the OTTY Essential mattresses to produce their latest budget option.
The revolutionary design is used once more in the OTTY Aura Mattress. This design features 4 layers with an additional sidewall layer, we will get to the what and why of each in the layers section.
Foams used in the UK need to be regulated and it should set your mind at ease to know that OTTY is a CertiPur and Europur certified member. These are independent testing and certification programmes concerning health and safety properties of polyurethane foam. So, any foams they develop have to meet the standards, meaning they are safe for customers.
OTTY Aura Mattress Cover
The OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress comes with a removable and washable cover. The cover is machine washable at 40 degrees Celcius. This thick, knitted cover was designed to be durable, soft and breathable.
It gets the durability from the material structure, while it gets its breathable property from the pores in the cover. These pores allow greater airflow than traditional covers, which could be great for those who sleep hot or need a cooling mattress.
OTTY Aura Mattress Layers
1. Temperature Regulating Memory Foam
Memory foam is often used as a first layer because of its comfort properties, however, it is also known to retain heat.
OTTY has combated this with their very own temperature regulating memory foam. This layer was designed to provide comfort while it also regulates your temperature.
Whether it's on the hottest night in summer or the coldest evening in winter, it is designed to produce a comfortable sleeping temperature.
2. High-Density Support Foam
The second layer in the OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress is the Transition layer.
A thicker piece of foam is used in this layer, which not only provides added comfort but helps the springs provide support.
This layer was designed to be firmer than the first layer, but not as firm as the springs below. This gives the mattress a smooth transition between comfort and support/ memory foam and springs.
3. Encapsulated Pocket Springs (16cm)
The spring layer in the OTTY Aura Mattress consists of 1000 encapsulated springs.
This is where OTTY shine, as other brands lean towards shorter springs or even micro-springs. In the OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress, however, you receive full-sized, 16 cm springs, perfect for those who need an extra spring in their step.
Giving the Aura a 70/30 % foam spring ratio, which is relatively high for hybrid mattresses.
Each spring is wrapped individually and responds individually. This means that whichever spring you touch, moves with you and only that spring responds.
This could be great for those who have restless partners, now they can keep tossing and turning without affecting your springs or sleep. You can always find out more from our mattresses for couples post.
4 + 5. Airflow Side Support and High-Density Foam Base
The final layer is a sidewall layer that wraps around the spring layer. This not only aids in support for the mattress but also for the springs, keeping them in place below you.
The box shape was designed to allow airflow and to promote the circulation of air through the mattress.
The foundation of the OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress is made from high-density foam. This layer is the foundation that all other layers sit on and while it isn’t as thick as in memory foam mattresses, it works with the sidewalls and springs to provide a solid foundation.
How Thick Is The OTTY Aura Mattress?
The OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress stands at 23cm tall, with full-sized, encapsulated springs standing at 16cm tall.
The OTTY mattresses have been weight tested and are capable of holding 22 stone (139kg) per side, so 44 stone (278kg) all in all, making it a great mattress for heavy people.
OTTY Aura Mattress Firmness
The OTTY Aura Hybrid Mattress has a firmness rating of medium-firm, thanks in particular to the spring layer which provides enough yet not too much support.
OTTY mattresses are said to be compatible with all sleeping positions, back sleepers, front sleepers and even side sleepers. They have sold tens of thousands of units for people sleeping in all sorts of positions so they are confident that it will be right for you.
The OTTY Aura Mattress is a timeless neutral design with a two-tone colour finish.
The top half is also the removable cover and it is pure white with oversized pores. The lower half of the mattress is grey. OTTY includes a splash of colour in the “Y” of their logo, a nice touch to the classic design.
