Over the years, I have been impressed by Brooklyn Bedding’s different mattresses. The Signature, Bowery, Spartan, and Aurora are all quality values. The company has its own factory, so it’s able to cut out middlemen and pass the savings along to the customer.
When I heard they were releasing a new mattress, I was very excited to try it out for myself. The Bloom Hybrid is a hybrid mattress with pocketed coils and all-natural latex. It is also designed to be eco-friendly and does not contain harmful chemicals.
You can choose from three different firmnesses: Soft, Medium, and Firm. I reviewed the Medium model.
Will you be sleeping comfortably on this green mattress? Read on for my full review.
You Might Want To Pick The Bloom Hybrid If …
- You are a hot sleeper. This a breathable mattress that should keep you sleeping cool. The coils promote airflow throughout the mattress, and the Talalay latex is naturally cooling. You shouldn’t worry about overheating on the Bloom Hybrid.
- You are looking for a long-term investment. The mattress incorporates quality materials such as high-grade coils and Talalay latex. This makes the Bloom Hybrid a very durable mattress. You will have to pay more up front, but it should be a longer-lasting mattress.
- You want a balance of comfort and support. The mattress has a soft, quilted top layer and firmer coils beneath. You should get a nice mix of balance and support. You should feel nice pressure relief on your side and good support on your back. You can choose from the Soft, Medium, or Firm model to find that perfect firmness for you.
You Might Not Want To Pick The Bloom Hybrid If …
- You want a more affordable mattress. While this mattress does have a lot to offer, it is quite pricey. Natural latex is an expensive material, so while this is a good value, it might be outside of some people’s price range.
- You prefer to sink into your mattress. With the Bloom Hybrid, you sleep more on top of the mattress. The coils and latex create a responsive sleeping surface, so you don’t sink in too far. If you like to sink into your mattress and feel enveloped by it, you might want to consider a memory foam mattress.
- You don’t like a bouncy mattress. This mattress has high-density coils and latex on top. These add up to create a very bouncy mattress. When you press into the mattress, it snaps right back into place. If you don’t like a bouncy, responsive mattress, you might want to think about a mattress with some slower-reacting foams.
- The mattress is about 13” tall.
- The cover is quilted and consists of Joma wool and organic cotton.
- The top layer is 3” of Talalay latex.
- Then there are 8” of individually-encased coils.
- Finally, there is a 1” layer of base foam.
- The latex and wool are responsibly sourced.
- The mattress is made in the USA.
- The mattress is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King.
- You can choose from three firmness options: Soft, Medium, and Firm.
- The Talalay latex is responsibly sourced and all-natural. It is free of harmful chemicals and could be a good choice for those who want an eco-friendly mattress.
- The pocketed coils make this a very breathable mattress. The Talalay latex is also naturally cooling. Adding these two together, you shouldn’t be sleeping hot on the Bloom Hybrid.
- The quilted cover adds a nice, soft layer to the top of the mattress. It provides good pressure relief on the shoulders and hips.
- The mattress provides a balance of comfort and support. The quilted cover and Talalay latex relieve pressure, and the pocketed coils are very supportive.
- The Talalay latex and pocketed coils are both very durable materials. They will stand up to years of use, so the Bloom Hybrid should be a longer-lasting mattress.
Firmness And Feel
When you purchase your Bloom Hybrid, you can choose from Soft, Medium, or Firm. I reviewed the Medium model and thought it felt like a 6.5/10 in terms of firmness. The coils are firm and supportive, but the softer quilted cover adds some softness. Overall, it has an average firmness.
While sleeping on my back on the Bloom Hybrid, I feel very well supported. My hips sink into the top layer but not too far. Below that, the coils support me quite well, and I also feel good support on my lower back.
Moving to my side, the pressure relief is surprisingly good. I sink into the soft, quilted cover and feel little pressure on my shoulders and hips. If you sleep primarily on your side, you could also consider the Soft model for even more pressure relief.
When I am on my stomach, the mattress is a bit too soft for me. My hips bow in somewhat, and I don’t feel the best support. That being said, you could opt for the Firm model if you are a stomach sleeper.
Because of the coils and natural latex, the Bloom Hybrid has a bouncy, responsive feel. It is easy to move around on the mattress, and I feel more like I am sleeping on top of the Bloom Hybrid (rather than “in” it).
When it comes to motion transfer, bouncy mattresses aren’t always the best. You usually want to look for something with slow-moving memory foam if you don’t want to feel your partner moving around at night.
To test out the motion transfer on the Bloom Hybrid, I placed a glass of water on the mattress. When I pushed into the surrounding area, I did see some disturbance. Also, when I laid down on the mattress and asked Marten to move around on the other side, I did feel his movements on my side of the mattress.
If you are looking for a mattress for couples, it is worth noting that you might feel your partner’s movements on your side of the bed.
If you sleep with a partner, you also want to think about how much of the mattress you can really utilize. Can you sleep or sit near the edge comfortably, or will you feel like you are going to fall off?
While sitting on the edge of the Bloom Hybrid, I feel secure enough to lean over and tie my shoes. The mattress does collapse somewhat, though. While lying down near the edge of the mattress, I do feel a bit like I might roll off the bed. I would say that edge support is not a highlight of this mattress.
Marten is a staff writer for us. He has a much different body type than me: He is 6’7″ and weighs about 230 lb; I am 5’9″ and 160 lb. Here is what he thought about the mattress:
In terms of firmness, I said the Bloom Hybrid was a 7/10. It felt just a little bit firmer than average.
When I’m on my back, I feel absolutely fantastic. My hips sink into the top layer but not too far. I feel very well supported.
Moving to my side, I feel a little more pressure than Joe did. That being said, the mattress still feels decent when I am on my side.
On my stomach, the mattress is just a little too soft for me. I think I need a mattress that is a bit firmer.
Heavier back sleepers should feel right at home on the Bloom Hybrid. Heavier side sleepers might want a softer mattress, and heavier stomach sleepers might want a firmer mattress.
It is not surprising that Marten thought the Bloom Hybrid was firmer than I did. He presses further into the mattress, so he feels a bit more pressure on his shoulders and hips. Also, like me, he needed more support when he was on his stomach. If you are a larger side sleeper or stomach sleeper, you could also look at the Soft and Firm models.
How To Unbox This Mattress
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid is a bed-in-a-box mattress, which means it will come compressed and shipped straight to you.
You will want to begin by removing the rolled up Bloom Hybrid mattress from its box. Then, preferably with another person’s assistance, position the roll on your bed.
Carefully cut away the first layers of plastic until the still-compact mattress can be laid down flat. Then, pierce through the final layer of plastic and the Bloom Hybrid will expand. Simply clear away the excess plastic and allow your mattress to breathe and fully expand.
What Makes This Mattress Stand Out?
- It features all-natural latex and could be a great pick for eco-conscious customers.
- There are three firmness options, so you should be able to find a mattress with just the right firmness for you.
- The mattress has a great balance of comfort and support. The quilted cover and Talalay latex offer good pressure relief, while the pocketed coils are very supportive.
- The Bloom Hybrid should be a longer-lasting mattress. The Talalay latex and pocketed coils are very durable, so this is a great long-term investment.
- Hot sleepers shouldn’t have to worry when sleeping on the Bloom Hybrid. The coils allow for some nice airflow and the Talalay latex helps dissipate heat as well.
In the end, I really enjoyed the Bloom Hybrid mattress. It has a great balance of comfort and support, and I like that there are three firmness options. The mattress comes with a 120-night trial, a 10-year warranty, and free shipping and returns. Financing is also available.
