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 available in three firmness options: soft (4), medium (6), and firm (7-8). The Bloom mattre ss 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.
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 three firmness levels to choose from: soft, medium, and firm. We found that the soft option feels medium soft, or around a 4 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The medium option feels more like a medium firm mattress, or a 6 on the firmness scale. The firm option falls around a 7-8 on the firmness scale. It should be noted that firmness is subjective, and will feel different to each person depending on body weight, sleeping position, and personal preferences.
Each firmness option has the same number of layers and general construction but differs in the softness of the comfort layer. The soft option offers significantly more contouring than the medium or firm options. The medium firmness balances comfort and support. The firm option provides the feeling of sleeping “on” rather than “in” 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|
Soft: 4/5, Medium: 3/5, Firm: 3/5
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.
The soft option isolates motion exceptionally well. This option is more responsive, so it absorbs pressure and prevents motion from transferring across the bed. Most movements will not be felt, making the soft option an ideal choice for light sleepers and couples who value motion isolation.
The medium and firm options are more resilient, so movements are more likely to transfer across the bed. 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 soft option offers better pressure relief for those who weigh less than 130 pounds. Of the three firmness levels, the soft option is the most conforming. This is ideal for anyone who is prone to developing pressure points or sleeps regularly on their sides. The shoulders and hips of side sleepers need ample cushioning.
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 firm option is more supportive with minimal contouring. This is best for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds.
Soft: 3/5, Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5
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 soft option conforms more closely than the medium and firm options. The strong contouring can prevent air from flowing freely around the body. The cotton, wool, and latex comfort system offsets this to a certain extent, but those who tend to sleep hot may feel more comfortable with the medium or firm mattress.
Soft: 3/5, Medium: 4/5, Firm: 4/5
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.
That being said, the soft Bloom Hybrid mattress compresses more easily than the medium and firm options. This makes it feel less supportive when sitting on the edge or getting in and out of bed.
The medium and firm options offer more support. This makes them better choices 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.
Soft: 3/5, Medium: 5/5, Firm: 4/5
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.
Though the soft option offers more conforming, the latex comfort layer is still resilient and quick to respond. That being said, the medium firm and firm options perform slightly better in this category. A firmer surface makes it easier to move on top of the mattress.
Soft: 4/5, Medium: 5/5, Firm: 5/5
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.
The medium firm and firm options have a slightly higher rating in this category. The firmer feel provides better ease of movement.
The soft mattress conforms closely, which can provide traction but can also make it harder to change positions. It may be too soft for some couples.
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.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid – Soft
The shoulders and hips of side sleepers need cushioning and support. The soft Bloom Hybrid mattress is best for side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. People in this weight category put less pressure on the mattress, so they need a soft surface to prevent pressure points from developing.
The soft option is the most conforming of the three firmness levels and relieves pressure at the shoulders and hips. It is good for those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds as well, though personal comfort preferences should be taken into consideration.
Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may find this mattress to be too soft. The added softness puts their hips at risk of sinking in too deeply, which puts pressure on the lower back. A firmer mattress keeps their hips and shoulders properly supported.
Back sleepers need support to keep the spine aligned. It is easy to maintain a neutral posture in this sleeping position, but the lumbar region needs support. Ideally, the mattress will balance contouring and support to keep the lower back and hips from sinking in too much. The soft Bloom Hybrid mattress is ideal for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The soft latex layer conforms to the shape of the body and supports the lumbar region.
Back sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds may find that a medium or firm Bloom mattress would be a better fit. The soft option only provides fair support. Some back sleepers in this category may prefer the feel of a soft mattress, but their hips and lower back are more likely to sink in. This causes the spine to curve and can cause aches and pains.
The abdomen and hips of stomach sleepers press into the mattress. They need plenty of support to keep the spine aligned and prevent pressure from building up on the lower back.
The Bloom Hybrid mattress with a soft feel is best for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. The latex comfort layer cushions the shoulders and chest while keeping the hips and abdomen lifted. It offers fair support for stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, as the coil base prevents sinking in too deeply.
For stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds, the Bloom Hybrid mattress is rated poorly. People in this category tend to carry additional weight around their hips and abdomens, which puts pressure on the spine. This firmness option is too soft for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. A medium firm to firm mattress would be better.
|Under 130 lbs.||130-230 lbs.||Above 230 lbs.|
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid – Medium
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.
Though side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds still find the medium Bloom Hybrid supportive and comfortable, it is less conforming than the soft option. The balance of contouring and support is best for side sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds.
The medium firm comfort layer and coil base of the Bloom Hybrid mattress are 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, the medium firmness holds the highest rating for people who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. 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 medium firmness of 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.
|Under 130 lbs.||130-230 lbs.||Above 230 lbs.|
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid – Firm
Side sleepers tend to prefer a softer mattress to relieve pressure on the shoulders, especially if they weigh less than 130 pounds. The less weight they put on the mattress, the firmer it feels. This can cause pressure points to develop, so it’s no surprise that the firm Bloom Hybrid mattress is not rated as highly by side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds.
For side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, the firm Bloom mattress offers good support. The firm latex comfort system offers minimal contouring, but still relieves pressure points.
Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds benefit the most from the firm Bloom Hybrid mattress. People in this weight category press into the mattress enough to feel the benefits of the thick latex comfort layer while being supported by the coil base.
The firm Bloom Hybrid mattress offers excellent support for back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. The firmness ensures consistent support from edge to edge. Back sleepers will find they sleep “on” the mattress rather than “in” it. This firmness keeps the hips, back, and shoulders aligned. The firm latex and pocketed coils are responsive enough to keep the lower back supported, and the mattress adapts to the shape of the body.
The firm Bloom Hybrid mattress still offers good support for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. Since it is less conforming, we found that back sleepers in this weight category preferred the soft or medium options.
Stomach sleepers often prefer a firm mattress, and the Bloom Hybrid mattress is rated highly across the board for stomach sleepers. The mattress keeps the hips and abdomen lifted, which relieves pressure on the lower back. The firmness is most beneficial for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. Those who weigh less than 130 pounds will still feel supported, but many prefer a softer mattress.
