Today I will be reviewing Brooklyn Bedding’s Bloom Hybrid mattress, an eco-friendly option that uses latex and coils to provide bouncy support. This mattress is a great pick for anyone interested in a latex mattress. If that sounds like you, read on below to learn more about the Bloom’s construction, feel, and testing results!
If you’re short on time, skip to the bottom and read my review summary.
Is the Bloom Hybrid a Good Mattress for You?
Brooklyn Bedding is a USA-based bed-in-a-box company that aims to create affordable luxury mattresses. The company uses end-to-end manufacturing, which means everything is done in-house. So Brooklyn Bedding has great control over its quality, materials, and cost. The Bloom Hybrid is no exception to this, and I think it’s a great option for a lot of sleepers.
Who I recommend the Bloom Hybrid mattress for
- Combination sleepers should appreciate the responsive feel of this bed. It should be easy to change positions on at night.
- If you’re a hot sleeper the Bloom is a great option for you. Its latex layer dissipates body heat, and its innerspring coils promote plenty of airflow throughout the bed.
- If you’re looking for an organic or natural mattress the Bloom is a good choice. It’s made with natural latex, Joma wool, organic cotton, and recycled coils. You can also take a look at our best natural organic mattress list to see a few other eco-friendly options.
Who I don’t recommend the Bloom Hybrid mattress for
- If you sleep with a restless partner the Bloom might not be the best fit for you. It’s bouncy, so you’ll feel a partner moving on the opposite side of the bed. If that’s a concern for you, check out one of our best mattresses for couples instead.
- Side sleepers who deal with shoulder or hip pain might prefer one of our best memory foam mattresses.
- Similarly, if you’re looking for plush sinkage and a lot of body-contouring the Bloom won’t be a good fit for you.
What Does the Bloom Hybrid Mattress Feel Like?
Think the Bloom might be the new mattress for you? Keep reading to learn more about how it feels. Remember, feel is subjective, and every sleeper will experience a mattress differently depending on their body weight and preferred sleeping position. I had a few coworkers test out the Bloom with me, so the score below is an average of all our perceived firmness levels.
We gave the Bloom a 7 out of 10 on the mattress firmness scale. For reference, 6.5 out of 10 is the industry standard for medium firmness. That means this is a slightly firm mattress. If you’re on the heavier side, you might experience the Bloom as more medium-firm.
I especially like the Bloom’s firmness level for back sleepers. It should provide nice support at the lower back, but still offer enough pressure relief to keep you comfortable. Side sleepers who don’t mind a firmer feel could also like the Bloom. But if you’re a strict side sleeper who likes a plush feel I don’t think this bed is for you.
I’d also recommend the Bloom to combination sleepers. You feel more “on top of” than “stuck-in” this bed thanks to latex’s natural responsiveness. This feel is great for combo sleepers who need mobility for changing positions at night.
Lightweight stomach sleepers or sleepers who only spend part of the night on their stomachs might also like the Bloom. But I think it’s a little too soft to keep strict stomach sleepers’ hips supported throughout the night. On the other hand, heavier people (over 250 lbs) might like the Bloom. I think this latex hybrid will offer the durable support they need to feel comfortable on their backs or sides. If you weigh over 300 lbs and like firm support, you might also want to check out the Brooklyn Bedding Titan mattress.
Testing the Bloom Hybrid Mattress
To give you a more objective view of what the Bloom feels like, I tested out a few important factors like pressure relief, motion transfer, and edge support. Read on below to see how it performed!
Pressure relief is an important component of overall feel. To find out where pressure points are likely to form when you’re on the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid mattress, I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lay down on my back, side, and stomach.
In the image below, you will see low pressure represented in blue to green and high pressure in yellow to red.
Back — That blue across the board means my weight was evenly distributed, and I didn’t feel any specific pressure points forming. Good news for back sleepers! They should be very comfortable on the Bloom.
Side — When I rolled onto my side, there was a little green on the map. This doesn’t worry me that much, and I personally felt quite comfortable on my side. But if you struggle with pressure around your hips or shoulders, I’d recommend opting for a softer mattress.
Stomach — I felt support across my body when sleeping on my stomach, though this might change a bit if I spent an entire night on the Bloom. If you only spend part of the night on your stomach, the Bloom should work for you. As you’ll see, this map is also mainly blue across the board.
This bed has a really good bounce. Combination sleepers should really enjoy its buoyant feel! But, increased mobility might also mean decreased motion isolation. Motion isolation is a measure of how much motion travels from one side of the mattress to the other. A mattress with poor motion isolation will make it easy to feel disturbed by a bedmate’s tossing and turning.
To test the Bloom’s motion isolating capabilities, I dropped a 10 lb steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches, and measured the disturbance it caused. Take a look at the chart below to see the results.
Like most latex hybrid models, the Bloom does not isolate motion particularly well. If you’re a light sleeper and sleep with a partner, you may want to avoid the Bloom. On the other hand, if you don’t mind a little jostling, the Bloom’s durability, cooling capabilities, and strong edge support make it a nice option for couples.
Speaking of edge support, I also tested out the Bloom’s edges! Edge support is a measure of whether or not the side of a mattress will collapse under your weight. As I mentioned above, the Bloom has great edge support.
The Bloom’s edges are reinforced, so you should feel very stable on the sides of this bed. High-quality edge support is a great feature for couples and heavier people, two groups that often benefit from being able to spread out over their entire sleeping surface.
What is the Bloom Hybrid Mattress Made Of?
This 13.25-inch mattress is made of great natural materials. Take a look below to learn about each layer in detail.
Cover — The Bloom’s cover is made from organic cotton and quilted with organic Joma wool. The cover is breathable (thanks to wool’s temperature-regulating abilities) and moisture-wicking. It also offers some nice initial pressure relief.
Comfort Layer —The Bloom’s top layer is made of Oeko-Tex Talalay latex. This natural material is naturally buoyant and cooling. It’s what gives the mattress its bouncy feel.
Support Layer — Underneath the latex foam are individually wrapped pocketed coils. These coils provide overall support to the mattress and encourage breathability throughout the structure.
Base Layer — The bottom of this bed is made of high-density polyfoam. It gives the coils something to bounce off of.
Now that we’ve gone over the Bloom in detail, I want to leave you with a few of my favorite and least things about this hybrid mattress. Hopefully, this will help you decide if the Bloom is the right new mattress for you.
My favorite things about the Bloom Hybrid mattress
My favorite thing about the Bloom mattress is its latex construction! The latex build means this bed is durable, cooling, and natural. Almost any sleeper should enjoy those features in a bed. I also really appreciate the Bloom’s price point. This is one of the more affordable latex mattresses I’ve reviewed. It’s not a cheap mattress, but if you’re looking for a high-quality latex mattress that won’t break the bank I’d take a look at the Bloom.
My Bloom Hybrid mattress complaints
My main complaint about the Bloom is that it does not isolate motion well. You’ll be easily disturbed by a restless partner on this bed. So if that’s a concern for you I’d suggest opting for a different mattress. Brooklyn Bedding offers a few mattress models that could work for couples, you can find more info about those below.
Similarly, if you don’t like the feel of latex you won’t like this mattress. You sink quickly through the wool quilting onto the latex layer of this bed, so if you don’t like feeling a lot of lift from your bed you might not feel comfortable on the Bloom.
