Brooklyn Bedding is a well-respected online mattress brand that operates out of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Arizona. The company offers a diverse range of high-quality beds. However, in this post, we are going to focus on the pros and cons of the popular Bloom Hybrid, which is a thick, durable latex mattress.

Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Mattress Review

Brooklyn Bedding offers many different quality mattresses, partly thanks to the fact that they own and operate their own warehouses where they can manufacture and ship beds for a lower price than if you had a middleman in the process. 

Bloom, one of the premium beds in their product catalog, is a supportive mattress made with eco-friendly materials, and it’s perfectly accommodating for all body and sleeper types. In fact, our Slumber Yard team member McKenzie sleeps on this mattress every night and loves it! Continue on below to find out why we think it’s a solid mattress for back, side, stomach, and combo sleepers!

Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Construction

If you take a quick look at the Bloom Hybrid mattress on the company’s website, it’s clear the company is targeting eco-conscious consumers who prefer natural and organic materials. As you will find out below, this mattress uses a combination of natural foams, fibers, and fabrics.

All in all, the mattress is comprised of four different layers and totals 13.25″ thick. Let’s take a look through each individual layer:

Base Layer: The mattress starts with a 1″ layer of high-density base foam. This is a poly foam that simply serves as a foundation for the coils above.

Quantum Edge Layer: The next layer consists of 8″ quantum edge pocketed coils. These coils serve as the primary support structure for the bed. Depending on which size you select, the bed will contain up to 1,189 individual coils.

Talalay Latex Foam Layer: Next is a 3″ layer of talalay latex foam. This layer serves two main purposes.: It provides a soft transition from the firm coils below, as well as some comfort for the person sleeping. For those of you who don’t know, talalay latex is premium, natural foam that is actually derived from the sap of rubber trees.

Quilted Wool Top Layer: Rounding out the mattress is a 1.25″ quilted wool and organic cotton topper. The wool is actually Joma Wool, which is a natural fiber that is grown in New Zealand. It’s fluffy, yet also quite resilient. Overall, this topper gives the bed a soft, comfortable feel.

Bloom Hybrid Mattress Cover

As we referenced above, the Bloom Hybrid uses a premium, non-removable topper/cover. It’s soft, comfortable, and gives the bed a luxurious look.

If you happen to get the bed dirty or you have a little red wine accident, the company recommends you spot clean the cover with a mild detergent, ensuring that you dab the cover instead of rubbing it.

Alternatively, you could also look into purchasing a mattress protector to safeguard against spills and dirt. You can check out the Bloom Mattress Protector on the company’s website or popular protectors on Amazon.

Bloom Hybrid Price And Discount Code

The Bloom Hybrid mattress is priced near the higherend of the bed-in-a-box industry. However, we don’t think this should come as a major shock considering the bed’s high-quality construction and use of natural and organic materials. No matter what type of product you’re shopping for, you’re going to have to pay up for premium, all-natural ingredients and materials.

Here’s how pricing breaks down by size:

SizePrice (MSRP)
Twin$1,099
Twin XL$1,299
Full$1,699
Queen$1,999
King / Cal King$2,399

If the cost of the bed is giving you sticker shock, we do have some good news for you: Brooklyn Bedding regularly offers promotions and discounts. In fact, as of the time this article was written, the company is offering their beds at a 20% discount. Check the discount box on your screen to see what sort of savings you can snag right now.

Bloom By Brooklyn Bedding Feel And Firmness

One might assume this mattress has a stereotypical latex foam feel given the 3″ layer of talalay latex near the top of the bed. However, that’s actually not the case. Due to the Joma Wool and organic cotton topper, the bed has more of a soft, pillow top feel.

Slumber Yard team member Jeff likes to say it feels like a traditional innerspring bed, but with a soft, neutral-foam topper. In other words, the bed has some bounce to it thanks to the coils, but it’s much more comfortable and accommodating than a traditional innerspring mattress due to the topper.

Don’t get us wrong, though, you can still feel a little of the latex foam that sits just underneath the wool/cotton topper. Latex foam is known for being super responsive, and you definitely get that with this mattress.

This extra bit of responsiveness is nice for active sleepers who toss and turn and move around a lot throughout the night. Sometimes with beds that aren’t as responsive, these types of sleepers will feel like they’re “stuck in the mud,” which can make it difficult to switch positions. Luckily, that’s not the case with the Bloom Hybrid mattress.

In terms of firmness, we think the bed comes in around a medium on our soft-to-firm scale. This option strikes a really nice balance between comfort and support.

Bloom Mattress Sleeper Types

Side Sleepers

Side sleepers will find the mattress very accommodating. The wool/cotton topper and talalay latex don’t quite contour or hug your body the way memory foam does, but it’s still very soft and gentle around your pressure points. In other words, the top layers won’t cradle your hips and shoulders, but you also won’t experience any discomfort around those areas.

Back And Stomach Sleepers

Back and stomach sleepers will also find the Bloom Hybrid to be a viable option. Between the 8″ coils and the 3″ layer of talalay latex foam (one of the more durable foams on the market), this mattress provides quite a bit of support. During our testing process, our team members (even the heavier ones), found that the mattress provided ample support under their lower back and trunk. Their hips never sunk into the point where their spine was no longer properly aligned.

Combo Sleepers

We think the Bloom Hybrid mattress is a viable option for combo sleepers. As we mentioned above, the mattress provides a nice balance between support and pressure relief.

It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself a primary back, side, or stomach sleeper, the Bloom Hybrid is accommodating.

In addition, combo sleepers will also appreciate how quick the mattress responds after pressure is released. This makes it quite effortless for combo sleepers to switch between positions.

Bloom Mattress Body Type Analysis

Petite Body Type

Yes, but keep in mind how weight affects firmness. An especially light person (150 lb or less) will probably find that the mattress feels more like a medium-firm. This is because smaller people exert less pressure on the bed, and therefore don’t sink in as deep as larger individuals. As such, the bed is better suited for smaller individuals who favor their back or stomach.

Average Body Type

The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom mattress is a great option for average-sized individuals. It provides enough support that they won’t sink in too deep, but is soft enough that they won’t think it feels as firm as their petite counterparts. If you fall in the average weight category (between 150 – 225 lbs) and prefer a medium feel on the firmness scale, the Bloom mattress is a great pick for your needs.

Heavy Body Type

First, thicker beds are preferable for heavy individuals since they’re more difficult to bottom out. There’s more material between the sleeper and the foundation.

Bloom Hybrid is durable and a very nice mattress overall

More importantly, coils provide what we call bi-directional support, meaning the coils compress but also push back against pressure. This extra bit of resistance is ideal to support the weight big folks exert on a mattress.

All in all, we think the Bloom Hybrid is a great option for people who weigh over 250 lb. If you’re an especially heavy person, though, you may want to check out our list of the Best Beds For Heavy People.

Does The Bloom Hybrid Mattress Sleep Hot?

We wouldn’t say the Bloom Hybrid bed sleeps hot. Rather, we’d say it sleeps more temperature neutral. The bed won’t actively cool you down (it’s not cool to the touch), but it also won’t be the primary reason why you warm up at night. Find out more about how we grade temperature regulation in mattresses on our blog!

Considerations For Couples

We think the Bloom Hybrid mattress is a viable option for couples. It performs well in terms of edge support and motion isolation, which are two important factors for people who share a mattress to consider.

Motion Isolation

First, the bed does a good job of isolating movement. The top layers do a decent job of deadening the bounce from the coils in the bed. However, in our tests, we did notice some motion that was transferred from one side of the bed to the other. This means that you likely won’t be disturbed by your partner’s movements throughout the night, so you can get a more restful night of sleep.

Edge Support

The Bloom Hybrid also provides solid edge support. As you roll over towards the side, you still feel properly supported and you never feel as if you’re going to slide right off the edge. With the Bloom Hybrid, both partners will be able to spread out and get comfortable. If you’re interested in learning more about the integral role edge support plays in sharing a bed with your partner, check out our blog on the subject.

Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Review Verdict

Overall, there’s a lot to like about this mattress. It’s comfortable, supportive, and accommodates people of all shapes and sizes. Really, the only downside we see with this bed is its price tag. As such, we see it being best for eco-conscious consumers who are willing to pay up for the natural/organic materials in the bed.

Comparing Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs Brooklyn Bedding Signature

If you’re looking to save a bit of money and want additional options to choose from, Brooklyn Bedding’s Signature mattress might be the pick for you. While the Bloom mattress lands at a medium on our firmness scale, the Signature comes in three different options: Soft, Medium, and Firm. The Soft and Medium versions fall between a soft and medium on our scale while the Firm sits at a medium-firm.

In addition to the comfort differences, the Signature mattress is also quite a bit less expensive than the Bloom. That’s because it doesn’t include any of the all-natural, high-end materials that exist in the Bloom model. Despite the lack of high-end features, however, the Signature manages to provide optimal comfort across all sleeper types. This is mostly due to the fact that the mattress comes in different options that are built to accommodate these preferences.

Comparing Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs Casper Nova

When comparing the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs Casper Nova mattresses, one will find many similarities. While the Casper Nova comes up just one inch short of the Bloom’s 13-inch construction, it still boasts similar features in its pocketed coils. Because the Nova is a hybrid mattress like the Bloom, it also offers ample support for folks of all shapes and sizes. Casper Nova, however, is a bit softer than bloom, and is Casper’s softest mattress offering. Even in terms of price, the Casper Nova and Bloom are pretty similar. In fact, depending on which size mattress you select, you may end up paying more for the Casper Nova than the Bloom.
