Brooklyn Bedding has been in the mattress industry a long time, though they’re now coming out with a completely new mattress.
They call it the #bestmattressever (yes, the hashtag is part of the name), and since it gets very strong ratings from other sites, I was very interested to see the feel and comfort of this new latex-like mattress (see how it compares to other brands HERE). Overall I had a good experience with the mattress, but there’s some particular things to note about the mattress you should know before making a purchase.
In early 2017, they changed the construction of the mattress, so this is an updated review based on this new construction.
This is a pretty comfortable mattress. You won’t quite get the pressure-relieving characteristics of memory foam, but it still felt good for me sleeping on my side. The video below shows off the firmness of the mattress. You can also see just how responsive the mattress is. It almost immediately responds when you change positions or just move around.
Brooklyn Bedding has 3 firmness levels, so you have the freedom to choose your firmness. I had the medium firmness option, which I’d put at about a 6.5 out of 10 firmness.
This mattress does a decent job of isolating motion. It’s not as good as memory foam, but it’s still pretty good.
The video below shows that the mattress works just fine with an adjustable bed.
The return policy follows the standard online-only mattress model, where you can return the mattress within a period of time (120 days for Brooklyn Bedding) and get a full refund. This is actually the best way to test out a mattress, in that you won’t really know what it’s like to sleep on a mattress after laying on it for 5 minutes in the store.
A unique note about Brooklyn Bedding is that they actually own their factory where they manufacture this mattress (made in USA). They have been in the mattress game a long time, and thus are both design and manufacturing experts when it comes to mattress. Because of this, I think they have one of the better quality products on the market at this price point, even compared to the other online-only mattress companies (which also deliver huge value over the traditional mattress store model).
Brooklyn Bedding is very transparent about their manufacturing, so I think actually the best source of information on their specs is their own website. However for quick summary, the mattress consists of:
The cover is a quilted cotton polyester blend. It is quilted with 3/4 inch tick of polyfoam, giving it a somewhat plush feel on top. Overall the mattress is made to have great bounce and sleep very cool.
The table below gives the price for each mattress size, as well as the responding weights and dimensions.
|Twin||39" x 75" x 10"||58 lbs.||$425|
|Twin XL||39" x 80" x 10"||60 lbs.||$475|
|Full||54" x 75" x 10"||85 lbs.||$625|
|Full XL||54" x 80" x 10"||90 lbs.||$700|
|Queen||60" x 80" x 10"||100 lbs.||$750|
|Queen Short||60" x 74" x 10"||100 lbs.||$750|
|King||76" x 80" x 10"||120 lbs.||$900|
|CA King||72" x 84" x 10"||120 lbs.||$900|
|Split CA King||(2) 36" x 84" x 10"||120 lbs.||$1,050|
If you like the latex feel, Brooklyn Bedding should be one of your top choices. I found it really comfortable, and very well priced, especially knowing it comes from an established mattress company with manufacturing expertise (see our other reviews). If you’ve made it this far, I think it’s well worth a try.
