Is it good marketing to associate your mattress with the word “plank”? Some sleepers may not think so, but there is definitely a market for firmer mattresses out there. People with back problems, heavier sleepers, and folks who just like to sleep on supportive surfaces — rejoice! The Plank Firm mattress from Brooklyn Bedding is here.

But I don’t want to walk the plank; I want to sleep the plank. Is this bed the right move for people looking for more back or hip support? What’s the deal?

I’ll now embark upon a full review of the Plank Firm, but for those short on time, you can head to my full review summary. Also, note that in this review, I’ll be discussing the all-foam Plank Firm mattress. There is also a hybrid Plank Firm mattress.

The Plank mattress is an all-foam, flippable mattress with a firm side and an extra-firm side, which makes it great for both back sleepers and stomach sleepers. Both sides of the mattress should provide stomach sleepers with the right amount of support needed, while back sleepers will be happiest on the firm side.

Where the Plank Firm Is Featured

Here at Sleepopolis, we use a series of hands-on tests to determine which mattress roundups a bed belongs on and who it might be good for. Here are some of our 2024 mattress roundups that include the Plank Firm:

Plank Firm Mattress Overview

The Plank Firm is a foam bed created by Brooklyn Bedding, a brand known for its high-quality sleep products and manufacturing mattresses in its own factory. This allows them to pass savings onto the customer. With the Plank, Brooklyn Bedding set out to create a mattress that would appeal to sleepers who love a firm bed. Also, it’s flippable, with both a Firm and an Extra-Firm side. This allows for sleepers to choose between two different feels. The side with the bed’s logo facing right side up is the extra-firm side, but wallah you flip it over and you have the firm side.

This Brooklyn Bedding mattress will arrive in a box. While it’s technically safe to keep it rolled up for 60 days, the brand really recommends leaving it in that state for no longer than three weeks. If your mattress remains in the box longer than that, it could potentially affect its expansion.

The company also recommends letting your bed breathe for three to five hours before test-sleeping the Plank Firm. Be prepared that your new mattress may emit a slight odor upon unboxing it, as most do, but with proper ventilation, it should fully dissipate within a day.

Plank Firm Mattress
Plank Firm Mattress

I do want to mention that the extra-firm side of this mattress is definitely one of the firmest beds I’ve tested but don’t count it just yet it’s still rather comfortable to sleep on. If you love the feel of a firm mattress, then the Plank Firm should be a match made in heaven.

One area where we felt the Plank Firm could improve is its warranty. While Brooklyn Bedding’s 10-year warranty is somewhat generous, we like to see a longer warranty — such as a forever warranty — for an all-foam mattress, as they tend to deteriorate faster than hybrid or innerspring mattresses. For some longer-term investments, check out our list of the best mattresses that won’t sag.

What Is The Plank Firm Mattress Made Of? 

The Plank Firm is a flippable mattress, so the five layers work double duty. The support layers on one side become the top layers when the mattress is flipped. When the logo is right side up, the firmer side is facing you. Today, I’ll be taking apart the Plank with the extra-firm side up.

Plank Firm Mattress

Extra Firm Cover – I tested the Plank Firm with the optional cooling top panel that uses phase change material. This material is cool to the touch and helps dissipate body heat. It’s a nice addition for those that sleep a bit hot but does add between $100 and $150 to the price of the Plank Firm. PCM does have a slick feel that may cause your sheets to slide a bit, which some sleepers complain about. Additionally, the cover is quilted with 1.5 inches of foam, which provides a little bit of pressure relief before hitting the extra firm support layer.

Extra Firm Support Layer – Up next, you’ll find 7 inches of high-density base foam, which has a quick response to pressure intended to provide instant, firm support. The Plank Firm is unique in using HD poly foam in a top layer, as it’s usually found farther down in a bed, providing shape and support through a softer support layer. However, the Plank is meant to give ultra-firm support, so this build actually gave us exactly what I expected.

Firm Comfort Layer – Below the beefy support layer, you’ll land on 2 inches of TitanFlex foam (a latex alternative), known for sleeping cool and providing a quick response to pressure. It’s not as firm as the HD poly foam, so you’ll likely get a bit of sinkage when flipping the mattress on its firm side. (This was a non-factor on the extra firm side, because the 7 inches of HD poly foam was all I felt.) Regardless of which side the Plank Firm was on, I didn’t feel stuck in the mattress, nor did the Plank lose any of its mobility.

Firm Cover – The cover on the other side of the Plank Firm is virtually identical to the top cover except for its quilting. There were only 0.75 inches of foam quilting on this side because when the bed is flipped, the Titanflex is less . The slickness of the cover was still there, so you won’t get away from it by flipping the bed.

Plank Firm Mattress Firmness

Now that we’ve discussed some of the basics about the Plank Firm, let’s discuss how it actually feels. Again, this is a firm, flippable mattress with an extra-firm side and a firm side. I’ll discuss how those firmnesses feel below. 

I’d like to highlight that firmness is subjective and my opinion might be different from your own. To get the best idea of firmness possible, I always poll a range of folks in the office and take an average of our scores.

Plank Firmness
Showing the firmness ratings for the firm and extra firm sides of the Plank.

We found the extra firm side of the Plank to be about an 8.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which begins at 1 for the softest and ends at 10 for the firmest. This means the Plank is definitely a firm mattress. I hardly felt any sinkage on this bed, and as the name suggests, it almost felt as if I was sleeping on a Plank. Though this isn’t my particular preference, (I’m a side sleeper who prefers a soft hybrid mattress) I do think this firmness level can work wonders for those who suffer from back pain (more on that later).

The firm side of the Plank is still quite firm, and got an average score of 7.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Unlike the firmer side, this side has an added layer of Brooklyn Bedding’s proprietary TitanFlex foam, which adds a bit of cushioning.

Sleeping Position and Body Weight

We recognize that people come in all shapes and sizes, and people of every size deserve a mattress that works for their body type. We use the weight categories light, average, and heavy to more easily categorize sleepers based on how mattresses will perform for their body type, as most mattresses are designed for the group we call “average” (130 to 250 pounds).

As a general rule, lighter sleepers don’t require as much support as average weight sleepers, and mattresses will tend to feel firmer to them. On the other hand, heavy sleepers tend to need more support than average weight sleepers and tend to sink into the mattress more.

As far as sleeping positions go, side sleepers tend to need a softer mattress while stomach sleepers usually need a firmer, more supportive one. Back sleepers are usually somewhere in the middle.

Is The Plank Firm A Good Mattress For Light Sleepers (Under 130 pounds)?

  • Light Back Sleepers – These sleepers should be able to doze off happily on the firm side of the Plank, with its added TitanFlex foam layer relieving pressure to the lumbar area.
  • Light Side Sleepers – Because these sleepers need a mattress that’s soft to the touch, I’d tell them to shy away from either side of this mattress. For a cushiony, pillow top, check out our DreamCloud Premier Rest mattress review.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers – I think that the less firm side of this mattress will also be a hit for these sleepers, because while it has a softer layer, it’s not enough for the hips to sink too deep.

Is The Plank Firm A Good Mattress For Average Weight Sleepers (130–250 pounds)? 

  • Average Weight Back Sleepers – I’d point these sleepers specifically to the Plank’s firm side, as it will keep their back in a healthy alignment and swiftly respond to pressure.
  • Average Weight Side Sleepers – I think that these sleepers will find that both sides of the Plank will be too firm. Our best mattresses for side sleepers should offer a better-focused approach to all their needs.
  • Average Weight Stomach Sleepers – The Plank Firm just might be the best of both worlds for stomach sleepers, with both its firm and extra firm sides offering the right amount of support to align your hips and shoulders.

Is The Plank Firm A Good Mattress For Heavy Sleepers (over 250 pounds)? 

  • Heavy Back Sleepers – Like other back sleepers, heavy folks should sleep comfortably on the firm side of the Plank. For a more supportive option, check out our best mattresses for heavy people.
  • Heavy Side Sleepers – The Plank Firm’s softer side should be alright for side sleepers wanting a firmer feel. However, these folks still may need a soft mattress to achieve the ideal pressure relief for their shoulders and hips.
  • Heavy Stomach Sleepers – Heavy stomach sleepers should feel firm support to prevent their hips from sinking into this mattress, particularly on the extra-firm side. 

Plank Firm Mattress Performance 

We test for a variety of features in each of our reviews, with a few of them being edge support, and pressure relief. This helps us make even more specific recommendations that go beyond just weight and sleeping position. Let’s take a look at how the Plank Firm functions in all of these different areas.

Plank Firm Mattress
Plank Firm Mattress

Plank Firm Mattress Pain Relief Performance

Pressure relief refers to how well a mattress alleviates tension at sensitive pressure points like the hips, shoulders, and lower back. To test the Plank Firm’s pressure-relieving abilities, I used a handy dandy pressure map. I lay down on the map and it measured how much pressure was exerted in real time. In areas of low pressure, the map turns blue to green, and in high pressure, yellow to red. We cover three different areas: back pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain.

Before interpreting the below results, you’ll want to take your sleeping position into account. For example, we don’t recommend the Plank Firm to side sleepers. So even if there was a decent amount of pressure relief for them here (which there isn’t), they’d still want to steer clear of it. Essentially, you want to consider your sleeping position first, then the pressure map results.

Note: These results are from laying on the extra-firm side of the bed.

PressureMap Brooklyn Bedding Plank Ultra Firm
The Plank Firm’s pressure map results for the ultra firm side.

I don’t think the Plank Firm is an especially good match for anyone with shoulder pain or hip pain. This isn’t surprising, as both of these areas usually need something softer, and the Plank was designed with firmness in mind.

Back pain, however, is a whole different story. As a lighter side sleeper myself, I didn’t personally prefer the Plank Firm, but I do think this firmness could help alleviate back pain for others. There’s more than enough support here to keep the spine lifted and in a neutral alignment. I’d recommend the side with lesser firmness to back sleepers for a slightly soft top layer, and both sides for stomach sleepers, depending on how much support you need to keep that spine in line.

Motion Transfer 

Motion transfer is the movement detectable on one side of the bed on the other. It’s important for couples or those who sleep with a pet — they’ll want a bed with low motion transfer that will absorb their partner or pet’s movement. To demonstrate motion transfer, we conduct a few different tests.

Human Test

First, I lie down next to a colleague and we both roll around, then record how much of each other’s movements we feel. On the firm side, I could feel my colleague come in and out of the bed. I could also feel him shift between different sleeping positions but his movement didn’t impact my side. However, the results were slightly different on the extra firm side. On that side, I could feel my colleague move a lot more here and that was impacting my side of the bed.

Water Test

I then take out a wine glass, fill it with water, and see how much the liquid moves when we do (the less movement, the better). You can tell the firm side does a better job of isolating motion than the extra-firm side. There was barley any movement in the glass when I was switching positions on the firm side, however, there was a decent amount of motion when switching positions and getting in and out of bed.

Seismometer Test

Finally, I drop a 10-pound steel ball from three different heights that are meant to mimic different movements you’re likely to feel in bed. I then measure the movement on the other side of the bed using a seismometer.

MotionTransfer Brooklyn Bedding Plank

These results show me that the Plank Firm has good motion isolation, so if you sleep with a partner, it’s less likely that you’ll feel their movements. This is a foam mattress and they typically absorb movement better than those with springs.

Responsiveness

When we say “responsiveness” here at Sleepopolis, we’re referring to a mattress’s ability to bounce back to its original shape when we press into it. A mattress with high responsiveness is usually going to be a good option for sex, as well as combination sleepers. Both of these areas involve people needing to move around a lot and change positions with ease.

While foam mattresses usually aren’t known for being very responsive, the Plank Firm scores high marks in this category, thanks to the extra-firm side and its layer of poly foam. While other foams may create absorption and sinking, this side of the Plank Firm helps you feel on top of the mattress and creates a great environment for switching positions.

Cooling

When it comes to cooling, we first consider its construction. Foam mattresses tend to sleep hot because the materials are denser than the coils found in hybrid and innerspring mattresses. The Plank Firm is no exception. However, it did feel a little cooler to me when I added the top cooling panel (note: this comes at an extra charge). 

We also test out each mattress we review with a device called a thermal gun, which uses color-coded imaging to measure how much and how quickly a bed heats up when we lie down on it. If it heats up more than 15 degrees Fahrenheit, we consider it to have poor cooling capabilities. 10 to 15 degrees indicates decent cooling, 5 to 10 degrees indicates good cooling, and less than 5 degrees indicates excellent cooling.

After five minutes of lying on the Plank Firm, it heated around 7 degrees, telling us that it has good cooling capabilities. It definitely won’t be the coolest-sleeping mattress out there, but for a foam bed, it should keep a fairly low temperature.

Edge Support

Edge support refers to how well a mattress holds up on the edges as compared to the middle. A mattress with good edge support won’t sag while you lie on the sides. This can add some durability to the mattress since you can take advantage of its full surface area.

For a foam mattress, I think the Plank Firm has strong edge support, most likely due to the firmness and density of its foams. I felt propped up on the side of the mattress.

Plank Firm Mattress Performance for Couples

When it comes to couples, it’s a whole other world. Not only is there a second person added to the mix, but you have to think about how often they move around at night, how far to the edge they go, how hot they sleep, and even intimacy.

As long as both parties prefer a firm mattress, we think that the Plank Firm is a solid choice for couples. It absorbs motion well, so even if one or both of you is a light sleeper, you’re not likely to wake each other up with your tossing and turning. The mattress is responsive enough for sex (especially for a foam bed), and its edge support should allow both of you to spread out. There’s a chance it might sleep a little hot, but that shouldn’t be an issue if you opt for the cooling panel.

My Final Thoughts About The Plank Firm Mattress

Before we finish up this Plank Firm mattress review, I’d like to leave you with some of my final thoughts about this firm bed. After that, we’ll answer some commonly asked questions about the mattress and see how it compares to other mattresses on the market.

Nichole testing the Plank Firm Mattress
Nichole testing the Plank Firm Mattress

Who I Recommend The Plank Firm Mattress For

  • I think the Plank Firm is one of the best mattresses for stomach sleepers. Both sides of the mattress, the firm side and extra firm side, should give these sleepers the support they need to keep their hips in line with their shoulders. 
  • Back sleepers who like a firmer feel should be happy on the firm side of the Plank. It should give them the support they need for a nice and straight spinal alignment.
  • The Plank Firm could be a winner for combination sleepers. It has a bouncy and “on top” of the bed feel, which should make switching positions easy.    

Who I Don’t Recommend The Plank Firm Mattress For

  • I wouldn’t recommend the Plank Firm to side sleepers. I think both sides are too firm for their needs. If that’s you, I’d recommend checking out our best mattress for side sleepers roundup.
  •  I wouldn’t recommend this firmness level to those who suffer from hip or shoulder pain. These folks typically need a softer mattress with more sinkage that will give them pressure relief at sensitive pressure points.
  • Those wanting the sinking feel of memory foam won’t find it in the Plank Firm, as it’s built to provide lots of firm support. Instead, see our best memory foam mattresses.

Plank Firm Mattress Vs  

Still wondering if the Plank is right for you? Take a look at how it compares to some other popular beds from online mattress brands.

Plank Firm Mattress Vs Saatva Mattress

Where as the Plank Firm is all foam, the Saatva is an innerspring mattress with two layers of coils. It’s firm and supportive (though not quite as firm as the Plank) and comes in three different firmness levels: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firm.

  • Price: As a luxury mattress, the Saatva is much more expensive than the Plank Firm.
  • Sleeping position: Both mattresses are a good choice for back sleepers and stomach sleepers, but the Saatva has its Plush Soft model, which is going to be the better option for side sleepers.
  • Cooling: We gave the Saatva a higher cooling score than the Plank Firm, mostly due to its innerspring construction that allows more air to flow through the mattress. 
  • Body weight: Even though both mattresses are excellent options for heavy sleepers, the Plank Firm is going to be more supportive for heavy stomach sleepers.

We were skeptical of buying a mattress on line but it could not have gone any smoother. Anthony answered all of our questions during our many phone conversations. Delivery was prompt and went without a hitch. Best of all the mattress is so comfortable! I haven't had such a good night sleep in years. Highly recommend this.

Plank Firm Mattress Vs GhostBed Mattress

Like the Plank Firm, the GhostBed is an all-foam mattress, but much softer. While we wouldn’t exactly call it a plush mattress, it came in at a 7 out of 10 on our mattress firmness scale — firm, rather than extra-firm.

  • Price: The Plank Firm usually runs slightly more expensive than the GhostBed, but not by much.
  • Sleeping position: Both mattresses are good options for back sleepers and combination sleepers. Stomach sleepers are going to fare better on the Plank Firm. Side sleepers likely won’t be comfortable on either bed.
  • Cooling: Simply put, the GhostBed is one of the coolest mattresses we’ve ever tried, so it wins in this area. 
  • Body weight: The Plank Firm is definitely the better option for heavy sleepers.

The GhostBed is a medium-firm bed that should suit a variety of sleepers. It uses a combination of latex and gel memory foam for a one-two punch of pressure relief and support.

Nichole testing the Plank Firm Mattress

Other Models From Brooklyn Bedding

Wondering what else Brooklyn Bedding has to offer beyond the ultra-firm Plank? Take a look at some of their other popular models below.

Plank Firm Mattress Vs Aurora Luxe Mattress

Equipped with luxury features and a support layer of springs, the Brooklyn Aurora Luxe is an excellent choice for those seeking a posh sleeping experience. It’s also much softer than the Plank Firm, coming in at a 6 out of 10 on our mattress firmness scale.

  • Price: As Brooklyn Bedding’s luxury option, the Aurora Luxe runs significantly more expensive than the Plank Firm.
  • Sleeping position: We recommend the Plank Firm for stomach sleepers and the Aurora Luxe for side sleepers, who should love the cushioning provided at their shoulders and hips. Both options should work well for back sleepers.
  • Cooling: The Aurora Luxe definitely wins here. Its coils allow for plenty of airflow, and there are extra cooling features such as its PCM cover and specially treated foams.  
  • Body weight: The Plank firm is more supportive than the Aurora Luxe, and thus the better option for heavy sleepers.

Plank Firm Mattress Vs Brooklyn Signature Hybrid Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding’s most popular mattress, the Signature Hybrid is a medium-firm bed with a layer of springs. Where we found the Plank Firm to be firm and responsive, we thought the Signature Hybrid had an optimal blend of comfort and support.

  • Price: As of this writing, the Plank Firm and Signature Hybrid are the exact same price.
  • Sleeping position: Both options are good for back sleepers, but the Signature Hybrid is a more sensible choice for side sleepers, with the Plank Firm being better for stomach sleepers.
  • Cooling: Once again, a hybrid mattress is often going to be cooler than a foam mattress, so this category goes to the Signature Hybrid. 
  • Body weight: With more firmness and support, the Plank Firm is going to be the better choice for heavy sleepers over 250 pounds.

I bought this for my 92 year old father in law, after he tried mine that I purchased 7 years ago. He raves about it every day, he says he falls asleep faster, sleeps longer without waking up. He says it's so comfortable. He called me yesterday saying he can't thank me enough for setting him up with the mattress. He's really happy with it . Thank you!!

Our Review Process

At Sleepopolis, our team of Certified Sleep Science Coaches personally test each mattress. We start by unboxing the mattress to figure out how difficult (or easy) it is to get the mattress from the box to the bed. Then, we spend time laying on the bed in different positions, taking time to assess it on our backs, stomachs, and sides. Next, we perform our Sleepopolis tests, using specialized tools to measure qualities like motion transfer, bounce, and pressure relief. Our last step is to open up the mattress and take a look at each layer. These steps allow us to give our final verdict on the mattress.
