Brooklyn Bedding and Loom & Leaf are two mattress brands that have seen great success online. They both rely on the online-only business model to pass massive savings onto the consumer in the form of a high-quality, affordable product.
While they have a similar business model, the two mattresses are actually quite different in the way they feel. This article will highlight those differences to help you if you are making the decision of Brooklyn Bedding vs Loom And Leaf.
- Both have a similar business model (online-only) and value to the consumer.
- Both mattresses consist of all-foam and use great, durable materials that consumers will really enjoy.
- Both companies are known for their customer service and have return policies / trial periods that are really great for consumers.
- Brooklyn Bedding is $750 for a Queen with free shipping; L&L is $1,299 with white glove delivery
- Brooklyn Bedding is shipped free in a box; L&L has a shipping charge but white-glove delivery
- Brooklyn Bedding has 3 firmness options; Loom and Leaf has 2 options
- Brooklyn Bedding has latex in its comfort layer; L&L has memory foam
- Brooklyn Bedding is resilient/bouncy; L&L has a slow-moving, pure memory foam feel
The Loom and Leaf has two layers of memory foam, over a transition foam layer, over a support polyfoam layer. The memory foam layers have 4 lb. and 5 lb. densities, so the materials are high quality and should last a very long time. Learn more in my Loom and Leaf mattress review.
The Brooklyn Bedding has two layers of latex, one of talalay and one of dunlop, over a support polyfoam layer. These are quality materials that should be durable and breathable. Learn more in my Brooklyn Bedding review.
Both mattresses use good materials that should be very durable for most people. The difference really is in the overall feel. Brooklyn Bedding is bouncy and resilient. The mattress conforms well, and you definitely feel that you sleep “on” the mattress.
With L&L, it retains a pure memory foam feel that is slow-moving (although more resilient than most memory foam mattresses). It’s awesome for pressure relief, and it sleeps cool as well. See how the feel compares in the videos below:

Which feel is better? It really comes down to personal preference. The feel of these two mattresses is so different that you just have to decide which general feel you like better.
For a Queen mattress, Brooklyn Bedding is $750 with free shipping, but people can usually get a 5% discount as well.
L&L charges $999 for a Queen, but there is also a shipping cost (usually around $99 depending on where you live), as the mattress is not delivered in a box (it’s hand-delivered).
The Loom and Leaf has a more luxury feel and has more expensive materials, which explains the price difference. Ultimately, people will have to decide whether the difference in price is justified.
Pick Brooklyn Bedding If:
- You Want A Bouncy, Latex Feel– The biggest difference between the two mattresses is the feel. If people want a more resilient mattress or they don’t necessarily like the memory foam feel, then they should go for Brooklyn Bedding.
- You Want To Save– There is a fairly substantial price difference between the two mattresses. Brooklyn Bedding is definitely high-quality, so you will save money and still get a good product by choosing the #bestmattressever.
Pick Loom And Leaf If:
- You Love Memory Foam– This is definitely a pure memory foam mattress. Some people love the feel of memory foam, and if you do, then you should without question go for L&L.
- You Want More Luxury– Loom and Leaf definitely has the feel of a true luxury mattress. There are more bells and whistles and more expensive materials in the mattress. If you have the budget and want a more luxury mattress, this may be the way to go.
These are both two really good choices (and have both made our best mattress list). They have great sleep trials / return policies, so there really isn’t a big risk in trying out either one. The difference in feel is pretty big though, so hopefully you can make a clear decision on which one will be right for you.
