Brooklyn Bedding is a unique retailer in the bed-in-a-box market. They own their own factory, so they are able to make and sell quality mattresses at a value price.
The have three options in their line of mattresses; the Bowery, Signature, and Aurora.
I received the 2018 version of the Signature, which replaces the former model’s base support foam with pocketed coils. The new Signature is also available in three firmnesses: Soft, Medium, and Firm. I reviewed the Medium model.
I was interested to see how this new hybrid Signature would perform. Read on for my full review.
You Might Want To Pick The Signature If:
- You Want A Value Mattress- Finding these materials and this quality construction at this price point is difficult. However, Because Brooklyn Bedding is factory direct, you can get a quite well-made mattress for a low price.
- You Are Looking For A Long-Term Investment- The pocketed coils and high-density foam are both very durable components. This should be a long-lasting mattress.
- You Are A Combination Sleeper- It has a medium feel, so it gave good pressure relief on my side. At the same time, it gave proper support on my back and stomach. I didn’t feel my hips sinking in too far.
You Might Not Want To Pick The Signature If:
- You Like A Classic Memory Foam Feel– If you like that slow sinking feeling that comes with classic memory foam, you won’t be getting that here. While the top layer of Titanflex is soft, it doesn’t compress slowly like many memory foam.
- You Sleep With A Partner– The motion isolation is decent, but it may not be enough if you are seeking a couples’ mattress. You may feel your partner moving around in the night, and this is definitely something to keep in mind.
- The mattress is 11.5″ tall.
- The cover is luxurious and tufted with 1” of foam and cotton quilted in.
- Under that is a 2” layer of proprietary TitanFlex foam. It is similar to latex and is injected with TitaniumGel, which is designed to help with cooling.
- Then you have a 2” layer of firmer TitanFlex foam. This layer will help transition you to the support layers beneath.
- Next is 6” of individually pocketed support coils. This is supportive and great for contouring.
- The Signature is Made in the USA.
- The Signature is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King.
- It is also available in three firmnesses: Soft, Medium, and Firm.
- The combination of coils and foam supports you while still relieving pressure. Sleeping on my side, I felt little pressure on my shoulders and hips. At the same time, the individually pocketed coils contoured to my body and supported me when I was on my back and stomach.
- The coils also add an extra level of durability. Together with the TitanFlex, these components should last longer, making this a good long-term investment.
- The TitanFlex promotes cooling and the coils are great for airflow. You shouldn’t be sleeping hot on the Signature.
Prices, Weights, And Dimensions
The table below gives the price for each mattress size, as well as the responding weights and dimensions.
|Twin||38" x 75" x 11.5"||60 lbs.||$599|
|Twin XL||38" x 80" x 11.5"||70 lbs.||$649|
|Full||53" x 75" x 11.5"||90 lbs.||$799|
|Queen||60" x 80" x 11.5"||115 lbs.||$949|
|King||76" x 80" x 11.5"||140 lbs.||$1149|
|Cal King||72" x 84" x 11.5"||140 lbs.||$1149|
The top layers of the Signature are quite soft, so I felt nice pressure relief on my side. I felt little to no pressure on my hips and shoulders.
At the same time, I never felt “stuck.” The Signature had some nice bounce to it, so it was easy to move around on the mattress. Being a hybrid, the mattress gives you a nice balance of bounce and foam feel.
Also, on my back and stomach, I felt the coil layers contouring and holding me up, so I felt properly supported, especially on my hips.
Overall, I would say the firmness was a 6/10, softer than average.
Testing the mattress, I experienced a little bit of motion transfer. The cup was definitely affected as I moved near it.
The motion isolation is about average and those who sleep with a partner may feel some motion transfer. If you sleep with a partner, this is just something to consider.
Though the foam collapsed as I sat near the edge, I didn’t feel like I was going to be thrown off. Also, lying down near the edge, I wasn’t being ejected from the bed. Overall, the edge support was decent.
While the motion isolation doesn’t make this ideal for couples, the edge support makes it so you can utilize the full surface area of the mattress.
You can see the edge support in the photo below.
Marten is a staff writer for us. He has a much different body type from me. He is 6’7″ and weighs about 230 lbs (I am 5’9″ and 160 lbs.). Here is what he thought about the mattress.
Like Joe, I had a pretty similar experience. I felt a nice balance of pressure relief and support. A little bit of sinking in, but I didn’t feel pressure on my shoulders, hips, or my knees.
On my back and my stomach, I was feeling really good support, so I didn’t feel my hips sink in. The firmness overall I would say was about a 7/10. Overall, it was a really nice experience.
So, even for someone larger like Marten, the mattress was comfortable in a variety of sleeping positions. This means the Signature is a good choice for combination sleepers of many sizes.
What Makes This Mattress Stand Out
- It’s all about value. Brooklyn Bedding is factory direct, so they are able to price this mattress very low. It really is a good deal for a quality mattress like the Signature.
- If you’re looking for a long-term investment, the components in the Signature are quite durable. The mattress should last for a good amount of time.
- You get that happy medium of foam and springs; a nice foam feel, but with some bounce.
- It is a good match for all positions, giving good support on your back and stomach and pressure relief on your side. Combination sleepers should find comfort in numerous positions.
How To Unbox This Mattress
The Brooklyn Bedding Signature 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 Signature mattress from its box. Then, preferably with another person’s assistance, position the roll on your bed.
Carefully cut the 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 Signature will expand. Simply clear away the excess plastic and allow your mattress to breathe and fully expand.
The Signature, like the whole line of Brooklyn Bedding, is all about value. Owning their own factory allows them to pass the savings on to consumers.
It is a great choice for combination sleepers of many sizes. You should feel pressure relief on your side and support on your stomach and back.
However, if you sleep with a partner, you may be disturbed by motion transfer during the night.
Brooklyn Bedding offers a 120 Night Trial period as well as a 10 year warranty.
