Brooklyn Bed Mattress Review
This post was last updated on July 3rd, 2019
Brooklyn Bedding is a sleeping product’s manufacturer, who started their business since 1995. Their products include mattresses, pillows, and sheets. Compared with other online mattress companies, one of Brooklyn’s advantages is it owns the factory, while others doing outsourcing.
The mattress industry is very complex, you have too many choices, and sometimes you just don’t know which one to pick. In most cases, customers rushed to a retail store, took a rash try and made hasty decisions.
To fix this, Brooklyn wanted to deliver a “one-comfort-fits-all” mattress firstly, but everyone is unique, so it’s hard to realize. They changed the policy later, producing 1 ultimate mattress + 3 separate comfort levels to fit every type of sleepers.
Features of Brooklyn Mattress
Most of the traditional mattresses are made of inner springs, since 2014, more and more mattress manufacturer switched to memory foam, and latex, which is more comfortable and durable. Brooklyn chooses latex as the main material. Its latex is Oeko-Tex Certified, which means it’s toxic-free and healthy to sleep on, even for babies and children.
One of the reasons it chose latex is because it has minimal motion transfer like memory foam, but it’s significantly better with sleeping cool. Brooklyn believes latex is the best material to sleep on.
- The cover, a breathable and flexible knitted cotton cover built in the USA, is extremely soft and just has a great feel to it.
- Top latex, 2” of Talalay latex, this layer is designed to contour the shape of your body and offers comfort, bounce, and cooling.
- Middle latex, 2″of Dunlop latex, this kind of latex is not as soft as Talalay latex, its main purpose is working as the transition between the top layer and bottom layer.
- Bottom foam, 6″ of high-density convoluted poly foam, this layer acts as a support and foundation for the mattress and also helps to prevent sagging even years later.
There are 3 firmness scales to choose, firm, medium and soft. Generally, if you don’t know which firmness to choose, you’d better choose medium, or call 1.888.210.8751. Don’t worry they have a free trial, as long as 120 days, so you have enough time to try and know which one is the best for you.
Compared with other online mattress companies, Brooklyn Bedding mattresses have more firmness scales, Casper, Tuft & Needle, Leesa only has one firmness. Loom & Leaf has two but it’s more expensive. Saatva also has three firmness scales, but it’s an innerspring mattress. The only mattress has a similar feature and price is the Dromma bed(also one of the best lover of sleeptips.org).
Brooklyn mattress is even harder than they claimed in the official site. From before diagram, we can see it’s 8/10(10 is most firm), but from consumer real testing, it’s even harder. If you side sleepers, don’t choose the firm level. You can choose this model if you are
- Back and stomach sleepers, especially for the one with back or shoulder pain.
- Heavier individuals who like to stay on top of the mattress
- Need firmer support for a health concern or doctor’s order
- Likes the floating feeling instead of a sinking feeling.
I believe most people will choose this firmness scale, a medium mattress is suitable for the ones who don’t have fixed sleeping positions. Official site claims their firmness scale as 5-6 out of 10. But in my opinion, it should be 6-7/10 (10 is the most firm), choose medium firmness if you are
- Back, stomach, and side sleepers
- Couples who have different sleeping positions
- Sleepers who are not sure what they like
- Sleepers who change sleeping position often
As I mentioned before, Brooklyn mattress is much firm than they claimed. So the soft here maybe not as soft as you think. Official site claims it’s 2/10 (10 most firms), but I think it should be 3-4/10. A 300 pounds guy who is a side sleeper, feels good after he tried a soft model. Choose soft firmness if you are
- Sleeping on the side and sometimes stomach/back, especially for the totally side sleepers.
- Lighter individuals (under 150 pounds)
- Side sleepers having trouble with their arms falling asleep
- Like being hugged by the mattress and ultra-plush comfort
If you are always a stomach sleeper with high weight, we don’t recommend you pick up a soft model
Size and price
There are 8 sizes for your pick, Twin/Twin XL/Full/Full XL/Short Queen/Queen/King/California King. Price range from $450- $900, choose the one you need based on your requirement.
Trial, Ship, Warranty
Brooklyn Bedding mattress provides trial period as long as 120 days, this is the longest trial I can find for online mattresses, mostly they are 60-100 days.
They provide FREE FedEx Ground Shipping to all contiguous U.S. States (48 states, excluding Alaska & Hawaii). On average, it takes 2-3 days to process your order and 3-5 days to arrive at your home. The mattress is compressed into a package after you release it in your bedroom, it goes back to normal in a short time.
It is very easy to set up your mattress. Simply take the mattress outside the box and lay it on the front of your bed frame. Unwrap or cut the plastic to decompress the mattress. This can take a few minutes to fully decompress.back to menu ↑
The highlight of Brooklyn bedding mattress
Firstly is the cotton cover they use, most mattress just uses fabric cove to save cost, but this doesn’t happen on B.B.
Secondly is the key material, different from memory foam, latex is more bouncy and cool. So if you are looking for a mattress who sleeps cool and is friendly for sex, Brooklyn bedding is the correct choice.
Thirdly is the firmness scale, most online mattresses juts has one firmness scale, medium, which is suitable for most people, but if that doesn’t work on you, you have to buy an extra mattress topper to fix it. B.B has 3 firmness scale to choose, so no matter you are back sleeper, side sleeper or front sleeper, you can get the one you need at a reasonable price.
The fourth is the free trial period. As I mentioned before, the industry standard is 100 days, B.B provided 120-night free trial, that’s awesome.back to menu ↑
Where to buy? Any coupon code?
Either from Amazon or from the official site. Take Queen size for example, Amazon sells at $750, with 30 days free trial, official site still sells $750, but with this special coupon(just click the link, it will take effect when you check out), you can save extra $50 ,can enjoy 120 night free trial, so I guess you’ve already had the answer on where to buy.back to menu ↑
