OVERVIEW

Brooklyn Bedding produces affordable mattresses, sheets, pillows, and other sleep accessories. The Arizona-based company started as a traditional brick-and-mortar retailer in the Phoenix area but adopted an online mattress-in-a-box business model in 2008.

Brooklyn Bedding currently offers a range of hybrid mattresses, including the Signature, Sedona, Aurora, Bloom, and Spartan. The brand’s outlier is the Chill, which features an all-foam design that uses a polyfoam support core instead of coils. Shoppers can choose from five profiles: 6, 8, 10, 12, or 14 inches. The mattress’ firmness level also varies based on its thickness. Multiple profiles and firmness levels make the Chill a versatile model that meets the needs of most sleepers.

We’ll break down the Chill’s materials, construction method, and performance in areas like pressure relief, motion isolation, and temperature control. By understanding how the different heights and firmness levels impact comfort and support, you can decide which version is most compatible with your sleep style and weight.

The Brooklyn Bedding Chill is available in five heights and four firmness levels. The 6-inch model has the most solid surface with a firm (7) feel. Both the 8- and 10-inch options are medium firm (6), which suits most sleep styles. The 12-inch model is slightly plusher with a medium (5) feel, while the 14-inch mattress features a medium soft (4) feel.

Shoppers should consider their sleep position and body size before choosing an appropriate height.

  • Choose the 6-inch mattress if … you prefer a firm feel. The thinner profile — which registers as a 7 on our 10-point firmness scale — prevents substantial sinkage for back sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds, making it easier to maintain a straighter spine.
  • Choose the 8-inch mattress if … you like a balanced, medium firm (6) feel but prefer a low-profile mattress. The 8-inch model accommodates most sleep positions and body types, and the memory foam comfort layer offers moderate cradling without allowing the body to sink deeply into the core.
  • Choose the 10-inch mattress if … you enjoy a balanced feel with a midrange thickness. This medium firm (6) option performs adequately for sleepers of all body types and preferred sleep positions, but it particularly excels for people between 130 and 230 pounds. The memory foam hugs the body without restricting movement, and the thick polyfoam core supports good sleep posture. The 10-inch model rates above average across all performance categories, including pressure relief, motion isolation, and temperature control.
  • Choose the 12-inch mattress if … you enjoy a moderately plush surface and are under 230 pounds. The medium (5) feel is particularly beneficial for side sleepers who need extra cushioning at the hips and shoulders. The thicker foam layers absorb motion well, so people who share a bed shouldn’t be disturbed by their partner’s movements.
  • Choose the 14-inch mattress if … you weigh less than 230 pounds and prefer a softer surface that offers deeper contouring. The medium soft (4) feel is compatible with side and back sleepers in this weight range, especially those under 130 pounds since they don’t require as much reinforcement to maintain proper sleep posture.

Brooklyn Bedding Chill Mattress Review Breakdown

The Brooklyn Bedding Chill is an all-foam mattress with a fairly straightforward design. The 6-, 8-, and 10-inch models consist of two layers: a gel swirl memory foam comfort system and a high-density polyfoam support core. The 12- and 14-inch options feature the same comfort and support materials but also include a transitional layer made from VariFlex foam. All versions have a soft and breathable cover made with a blend of cotton and polyester.

The memory foam comfort layer is between 2 and 3 inches thick depending on the height of the mattress. Gel swirls are designed to reduce some of the heat buildup associated with traditional foams. Similarly, the thickness of the polyfoam support core also increases with height, and ranges from 4 to 8 inches. The high-density polyfoam forms a stable base and minimizes sagging under weight and pressure.

The VariFlex foam in the 12- and 14-inch models measures 2 and 3 inches thick, respectively. This transitional layer buffers sleepers from the solid support core. The foam offers moderate contouring while distributing body weight evenly throughout the mattress.

All the foam layers utilize open-cell technology engineered to keep sleepers cool. The mattress is topped with Nano Stain Terminator, an eco-friendly treatment that safeguards against spills and accidents.

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 4/5, 12-inch: 4/5, 14-inch: 5/5

Motion isolation indicates how well a mattress prevents movement from transferring across the surface. This factor is usually important to couples, since strong motion isolation equates to fewer nighttime disturbances.

Memory foam absorbs motion well, so it’s not surprising that the Chill excels in this category. The rating increases with height since thicker foam layers absorb more motion. The foam also minimizes noise, making the mattress virtually silent.

Pressure Relief

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 4/5, 12-inch: 4/5, 14-inch: 4/5

Most sleepers should experience notable pressure relief from the Chill, but it’s important to keep in mind that not all profiles perform the same for every sleep position and weight range.

Generally speaking, the taller models provide extra cushioning to sensitive pressure points, which is reflected in their slightly higher ratings.

Side sleepers typically value pressure relief more than other sleeper types. People who sleep on their side and weigh less than 130 pounds will likely appreciate the extra cushioning of the 12- and 14-inch models, while those over 130 pounds may prefer the more balanced feel of the 10-inch option.

Temperature Control

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 3/5, 12-inch: 3/5, 14-inch: 2/5

Foam mattresses are notorious for trapping heat, particularly if they closely hug the body. The Chill moderately contours the body, so heat is less likely to build up around sleepers.

The Chill also uses gel swirls and open-cell foams that are engineered to promote airflow. Cotton is a naturally breathable material, so the cover should help draw heat away from sleepers.

Some people might feel uncomfortably warm on the 14-inch model, as the thicker memory foam layer is more prone to heat retention.

Edge Support

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 3/5, 12-inch: 2/5, 14-inch: 2/5

Edge support can be a weak area for foam mattresses, since they don’t have sturdy steel coils to reinforce the perimeter. However, the lower-profile Chill options have decent edge support compared with the average foam bed. Most sleepers under 230 pounds should not experience significant sinkage on the edges of these models.

Couples and sleepers over 230 pounds might need to stay closer to the center of the bed for adequate support, especially on the 12- and 14-inch models.

Ease of Movement

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 3/5, 12-inch: 2/5, 14-inch: 2/5

While the Chill’s memory foam does not closely hug the body, none of its foam layers are especially responsive and the mattress lacks the added bounce of an innerspring or hybrid with a coil core.

That said, most sleepers under 230 pounds should not have trouble changing positions. Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may sink excessively on the 12- and 14-inch models, causing them to feel stuck.

Sex

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 3/5, 12-inch: 2/5, 14-inch: 2/5

How conducive a mattress is to sex depends on several factors. This is one of the most subjective performance areas of a mattress, but couples commonly value strong responsiveness and edge support.

While the Chill has decent edge support for an all-foam mattress, minimal bounce could make transitioning between positions more difficult, especially on the taller models.

All versions isolate noise and motion well, which can be helpful for couples who share living quarters with other people.

Off-Gassing

6-inch: 3/5, 8-inch: 3/5, 10-inch: 3/5, 12-inch: 3/5, 14-inch: 2/5

Off-gassing occurs when volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced during the foam manufacturing process are released into the air. Despite the chemical-like smell, the tiny particles are not considered harmful.

Off-gassing with the Chill shouldn’t be as noticeable compared with the average all-foam mattress. However, the 14-inch model may emit a slightly stronger odor since it contains more foam. The smell from all models should dissipate within a few days of being unboxed.

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers:
Side sleepers require the softest surface of all the positions in order to ease tension on the hips, shoulders, and knees.

Across all weight groups, the 10-inch and thicker models perform especially well for side sleepers. The taller designs have thicker memory foam layers that conform more closely to the body, helping to relieve pressure buildup. The one exception is that side sleepers over 230 pounds might sink too much on the 14-inch mattress, resulting in uneven weight distribution.

While the 8-inch model offers decent pressure relief for people over 130 pounds, most side sleepers should steer clear of the 6-inch model, as its firm surface offers minimal cushioning to the hips and shoulders.

Back Sleepers:
Most back sleepers enjoy a medium (5) to firm (7) surface that reinforces the torso area for a straighter spine. The 8- and 10-inch versions of the Chill both have a balanced medium firm (6) feel that performs well for back sleepers in any weight range, particularly those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds.

The 12- and 14-inch options are well suited to back sleepers under 130 pounds, as this weight range doesn’t require as much pushback from the mattress surface. However, these softer models might permit excess sinkage for back sleepers over 230 pounds.

Stomach Sleepers:
Stomach sleepers usually need a firmer surface that keeps the midsection from sinking into the mattress.

Our tests show that stomach sleepers do well with the 8- and 10-inch models regardless of body weight. Both models have a medium firm feel that supports the midsection. Stomach sleepers under 130 pounds tend to prefer the thinner 8-inch version, while those over 130 pounds enjoy the extra support of the 10-inch model.

The 6-inch mattress is best limited to stomach sleepers under 130 pounds, as the thinner profile doesn’t offer substantial enough support for heavier people. The 12- and 14-inch models have plusher surfaces that may sag excessively for stomach sleepers over 230 pounds.
