The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is a quality mattress with a moderate firmness rating. On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest, the Bowery Hybrid is about a 6 out of 10. The moderate firmness means that this bed is suitable for a wide variety of sleepers, making it a versatile choice for many households.
This is a hybrid bed, which means it uses a combination of metal springs or coils and comfort layers of foam. The underlying support and foundation of the bed is the metal coils – in this case, six inches of pocketed coils – while the comfort layers consist of memory foam and polyfoam. Hybrid beds like the Bowery aim to combine the durability and support of traditional innerspring beds, with the modern comfort of cushy foams.
The Bowery Hybrid uses a 6-inch layer of pocketed coils, as well as a 1-inch layer of firm polyfoam as its underlying support layer. Pocketed coils are metal coils that are individually wrapped in fabric, rather than linked together. This allows for them to move independently from one another, which helps to provide more customized support and a very responsive feel.
The comfort layer is made up of a 2-inch polyfoam transition layer, and the cover, which has 1 inch of gel memory foam quilted into it. This is a relatively thin comfort layer, compared to most hybrids, which is one reason why the Bowery is priced more affordably than average. The thin foam layer also contributes to the Bowery Hybrid’s somewhat firmer feel.
Keep in mind that this mattress’s design means that it is not flippable. You can rotate it once every 6 months to extend its longevity, but it’s a one-sided design that should not be flipped. Additionally, because the cover is built-in to the design of the mattress, it is not removable or machine-washable.
The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid uses a simple yet effective design consisting of four distinct layers. The underlying support system is 6” of pocketed coils – metal springs that are individually wrapped in fabric – and 1” of firm polyfoam. A 2” polyfoam transition layer helps with both contouring and comfort. Lastly, a quilted plush cover, which has 1” of gel memory foam built-in, tops the mattress. The cover is designed to help reduce heat retention, allowing you to sleep cool even on hot nights.

The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is very attractively priced for a hybrid mattress. Beds are available for significantly less than the average cost for comparable hybrid mattresses, as many manufacturers price hybrid models around at least $1000 for a queen (and often much more).
If you are looking for a hybrid mattress, but don’t want to go over budget, the Bowery Hybrid is a great option.

Many side sleepers should find the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid to be a comfortable and supportive mattress. The mattress provides enough give to allow the shoulders and hips to sink in, but the support from the coil layer provides enough push-back to keep the spine aligned.
However, the Bowery is not without drawbacks for those who sleep on their sides. This model’s firmness level, a 6 out of 10, may feel a bit too firm for some side sleepers. This is particularly true for those who weigh less than 130 pounds. Additionally, some side sleepers may find that the 3 inches of foam are not quite thick enough to provide adequate contouring around the hips and shoulders.
On average, the Bowery Hybrid performs well for back sleepers. It’s moderately firm, a trait that is generally a great match for those who sleep on their backs. Its hybrid design means that its coils provide rigid underlying support for back sleepers, helping to align the spine and alleviate pressure on the lower back. In the comfort layers, the relatively thin layer of foams provides some contouring, without too much give. Back sleepers under 230 pounds should be comfortably supported, though some back sleepers over 230 pounds may find the bed a bit too soft for their liking.
For stomach sleepers, the Bowery Hybrid may or may not be a good fit. For stomach sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds, it should perform decently well, allowing for proper spinal alignment and pressure relief.
However, for heavier people, the Bowery is likely not firm enough to fully support stomach sleepers. Most stomach sleepers prefer firm beds for their stronger support, whereas the Bowery Hybrid is a bit on the softer end of the firm spectrum. While many stomach sleepers sleep well on medium firm beds like the Bowery Hybrid, they may be better off going for a firmer, more supportive model.
