Avocado and Brooklyn Bedding Signature are both mattress models that combine coil and foam materials. While there are similarities in their construction (such as individually pocketed coils and springy top layer materials), these mattresses have very different feels. We’ll break down the differences here.
- Both are combination foam-coil mattresses.
- Both come in 11″ thick options.
- Both have bounce and elasticity.
- Both are very breathable.
- Both offer free shipping.
- Brooklyn Bedding offers different firmness options.
- Brooklyn Bedding offers softer options.
- Brooklyn Bedding is infused throughout with cooling TitaniumGel™.
- Avocado is thicker.
- Avocado has an optional pillow-top that adds 2″ of thickness.
- Avocado uses natural materials.
- Avocado is pricier (non-sale prices: $959 to $2,199 for Avocado; $599 to $1,149 for Brooklyn Bedding Signature).
- Brooklyn Bedding’s trial is a little longer at 120 nights, compared to 100 nights for Avocado.
- Avocado has a 100 percent organic cotton cover and a top layer of natural dunlop latex. These natural materials are one of Avocado’s unique features. The latex layer provides pressure relief and bounce.
- Consumers have the option of adding a pillow-top on top of the first foam layer. With the pillow-top, the mattress is 13″ thick, which is 2″ thicker than the non-pillow-top model.
- The base support layer contains individually wrapped coils zoned to provide extra support where you need it the most. This advanced construction makes the mattress great for sleepers who weigh more.
Brooklyn Bedding Construction
- Brooklyn Bedding Signature comes in three firmness options: soft, medium, and firm. These three options have similar constructions.
- On top is 2″ of proprietary “TitanFlex” foam, which uses a special gel to conform to your body and pull heat away from the body. This foam has an elastic quality to it.
- A second transitional layer of TitanFlex comes next to strengthen support that molds to your contours.
- The 6″ support layer contains around 1,000 individually wrapped Ascension™ coils designed to be supportive and to decrease transfer of motion.
- A 1″ layer of high-density foam comprises the base, reinforcing the coil layer.
- Both mattresses are durable.
- Avocado uses natural materials.
- Avocado has an optional pillow-top.
- Brooklyn Bedding Signature runs a little softer.
- Both have relatively springy top layers.
- Brooklyn Bedding Signature uses more trademarked materials.
- Both sleep cool and are breathable.
- Avocado contains latex.
Both mattresses are responsive and have a bouncy surface, but Avocado is firmer and has a harder bounce than the medium version of Brooklyn Bedding Signature.
Motion Transfer Differences
Brooklyn Bedding Signature runs a little softer and uses a slower moving top layer material, making it better at isolating motion than the very firm Avocado mattress. Both do alright.
Pick Avocado If …
- You want more bounce. While both mattresses are notable for being responsive, Avocado is especially springy.
- You weigh more. Avocado’s latex layer and coil construction make it especially supportive. Combined with its firmness, these qualities make Avocado a good option for people who are heavier.
Pick Brooklyn Bedding If …
- You sleep on your side. Brooklyn Bedding Signature has softer options than Avocado and uses materials that offer better pressure relief.
- You are on a budget. Brooklyn Bedding Signature costs less.
These are both good choices, but each brand will appeal more to different sleepers. Hopefully this has been a helpful comparison. Please leave specific questions about each brand in the comments.
