Brooklyn Bedding launched in 2009, and was one of the first companies to offer a bed in a box mattress. As a pioneer of the online mattress industry, the company manufactures its own mattresses in the United States and is known for quality craftsmanship. Since launching its Signature mattress, Brooklyn Bedding has expanded its product line to include six mattress models: the Signature Hybrid, the Aurora Hybrid, the Bowery, the Bowery Hybrid, the Spartan Hybrid, and the Bloom Hybrid. The company also offers bedding, accessories, and foundations.
We’ll focus on the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress in this review, which is the company’s only latex hybrid model. The Bloom Hybrid mattress is made with organic cotton, Joma wool, Talalay latex, and pocketed coils. It is offered in a single firmness option: medium (5). The Bloom mattress offers moderate contouring and full-body support. It has a breathable construction that helps regulate temperature.
We’ll break down the mattress construction, firmness, and pricing in this comprehensive review. We’ll also cover how it performs across categories including motion isolation, temperature regulation, and pressure relief. Our recommendations are based on verified customer feedback, extensive product research, and how the mattress performs based on body weight and sleeping position. We’ll also review the company’s policies.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress is made with natural, sustainable materials. It has a wool, cotton, and latex comfort system with a pocketed coil support base. It is considered medium (5) in terms of firmness level.
The cover of the Bloom Hybrid mattress is quilted with organic cotton and Joma wool. Joma wool is crimped for added volume without unnecessary weight. These natural materials wick away heat and moisture. The plush top adds softness to the mattress while regulating temperature.
Beneath the cover is three inches of natural Talalay latex. Talalay latex is more breathable than Dunlop latex, and allows for additional airflow throughout the mattress. It is also resistant to mildew, mold, and dust mites. This buoyant material offers ease of movement and pressure relief. It contours gently to the shape of the body, preventing the feeling of sinking in.
The support core includes pocketed coils. The coils are individually encased, which allows them to respond individually to pressure. This minimizes motion transfer, so those who share the bed are less likely to feel their partner’s movements throughout the night. The responsive coils also alleviate pressure points. The support base is reinforced by a layer of high-density polyfoam. This adds durability to the mattress.
There are four layers in the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress. The comfort system uses natural materials, including cotton, wool, and latex. Paired with a pocketed coil support core, the Bloom Hybrid mattress is breathable and supportive.

The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress is competitively priced for a natural latex hybrid bed. Many latex hybrid mattresses cost $2,000 or more, and a queen size Bloom Hybrid mattress falls just below this mark. Brooklyn Bedding ships direct to customers, which keeps their overhead costs low and mattress prices competitive. The company also offers seasonal sales and promotions.
The comfort system of the Bloom Hybrid mattress is made with durable, natural materials. The coil base provides consistent support. Though it is a newer mattress, we expect it to have a better than average lifespan based on the materials and construction. This makes the mattress a sound investment.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress is available in standard sizes, twin through California king. Brooklyn Bedding also offers custom sizing. The Bloom mattress has a height of 13.5 inches. This is a higher profile than the average mattress and will require deep pocket sheets.
|Twin||39" x 75"||13.5"||58 lbs.||$1,199|
|Twin XL||39"x 80"||13.5"||60 lbs.||$1,249|
|Full||54" x 75"||13.5"||85 lbs.||$1,499|
|Queen||60" x 80"||13.5"||100 lbs.||$1,799|
|King||76" x 80"||13.5"||120 lbs.||$2,199|
|California King||72" x 84"||13.5"||120 lbs.||$2,199|
The thick latex comfort layer of the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress absorbs movements. This results in better motion isolation than the average latex hybrid mattress.
That being said, latex does not absorb motion as well as memory foam. The coil support base helps facilitate movement, though each coil is individually encased to minimize motion transfer. As a result, the Bloom mattress balances motion isolation with ease of movement.
Those who share the bed shouldn’t feel smaller movements like shifting positions, but may feel their partner get in and out of bed.
The Bloom Hybrid relieves pressure with moderate contouring and a responsive comfort layer. Latex does not cradle the body in the same way that memory foam and polyfoam might, so sleepers won’t sink in deeply.
The Bloom mattress has a supportive coil base that keeps the spine aligned while alleviating pressure on the body. Each coil is individually encased, allowing the mattress to respond proportionately to deep compression areas.
The medium firm feel offers some contouring. The latex comfort layer is buoyant, so most will feel they are sleeping on top of the mattress, rather than in it.
The natural materials of the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress ensure ample airflow and breathability. The quilted cover uses cotton and wool, which wick away heat and moisture. Wool acts as natural insulation and regulates temperature. It draws heat away from the body when it is warm and offers warmth when it is cooler.
Natural latex is more breathable than memory foam or polyfoam, and the Bloom mattress uses Talalay latex in its comfort system. This type of latex is light and airy compared to Dunlop latex, which is more dense.
The coil base allows for plenty of airflow throughout the mattress. This helps dissipate heat to keep you cool throughout the night.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress has an 8-inch coil support base, which is reinforced with high-density polyfoam. Buoyant latex in the comfort system prevents sagging. The combination of these materials provides consistent support for sleeping near the edge of the bed and prevents the feeling of rolling off.
The Bloom is a solid choice for those who need ample edge support when getting in and out of bed, or for those who regularly sit on the edge of the bed. Edge support is ideal for couples, as it increases the usable surface area of the bed.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress is rated highly for ease of movement, due to the buoyant latex comfort layer and coil support base. Generally, hybrid mattresses offer better ease of movement than foam mattresses.
There is ample bounce to the mattress. This helps facilitate movement and makes it easy to change positions. This is ideal for combination sleepers and couples.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress is conducive to sexual activity. The buoyant latex layer and coil support base provide ample bounce, making it easy to change positions as needed.
The edge support of the mattress allows couples to use the entire surface area of the bed. The coils produce minimal noise, so it’s also a discreet choice.
There is an initial off-gassing odor when the Bloom Hybrid mattress is first unboxed. The mattress construction includes latex and polyfoam, which are susceptible to off-gassing. This is not considered harmful and should dissipate within a couple of days. The smell is minimal when compared to an all-foam mattress.
The coils of the Bloom mattress aid airflow, which helps dissipate the smell quickly. Placing the mattress in a well-ventilated room will also help.
The medium firmness of the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid offers moderate contouring for side sleepers. The thick comfort layer of latex relieves pressure on the hips and shoulders, while the coil support core helps keep the spine aligned.
The balance of contouring and support that the Bloom offers is best for side sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds.
The feel of the Bloom Hybrid mattress is highly supportive, and side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds will find the mattress keeps their spine and hips aligned. The combination of latex and coils keeps pressure from building up in these areas, and the comfort layer is cushioning and responsive.
The combination of a medium firm latex comfort system and coil support core is ideal for back sleepers. This level of firmness balances contouring and full-body support to keep the spine in alignment. Back sleepers are able to maintain a neutral posture.
For back sleepers, people who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds rated the mattress the highest. For these sleepers, the mattress is not too soft or too firm. It still offers good support for those who weigh less than 130 pounds, though some may find it feels too firm. The medium firmness also has benefits for those who weigh more than 230 pounds, but will depend on comfort preferences. Back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds often prefer a firm mattress.
The Bloom Hybrid mattress has benefits for stomach sleepers. The responsive latex cushions the chest and shoulders, while the added firmness keeps the hips and abdomen on top of the mattress. This keeps the spine in alignment and prevents lower back pain. It also ensures that the chest and shoulders are comfortable.
We found that this firmness is a good option for stomach sleepers in each weight category. In general, stomach sleepers prefer a medium firm to firm mattress to prevent sinking in too deeply.
