Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress Review: Our Verdict
Priced competitively with similarly constructed latex hybrid mattresses, the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid comes at an excellent value. With two firmness options and latex hybrid construction, this mattress offers comfort for all sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred sleep position.
Aside from comfort, the Bloom Hybrid stands out for its superior temperature neutrality, durability, and suitability for couples. However, sleepers who prefer a less responsive and more highly contouring mattress may enjoy the foam-based Brooklyn Bedding Bowery or Bowery Hybrid.

How Much Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress?
The Bloom Hybrid is competitively priced when compared to similar latex hybrid mattress models. That said, the 14-inch model costs considerably more than its 11-inch counterpart.
Latex offers several benefits that justify its price when compared to foam-based mattresses. First, latex is typically made from high-quality, natural sources. Second, latex offers superior durability when compared to foam. It’s important to note that these advantages still hold true in the case of a hybrid-style mattress like the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom in which latex layers are combined with pocketed coils.

How Does the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress Feel?
The Bloom Hybrid combines latex and pocketed coil layers in its construction. The medium (5) feel offers a sleep surface with comfortable contouring, hugging your body moderately as you sleep, with a bouncy resilience that allows for easy movement. The firm (7) feel won’t contour as much and provides more support, making it more comfortable for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. The bed provides a strong balance between body-contouring and support thanks to its latex hybrid construction, offering comfort while minimizing sagging.
What Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress Made Of?
The Brooklyn Bedding Bloom mattress is made with layers of latex, pocketed innerspring coils, and polyfoam protected by a wool and cotton cover. The combination gives this mattress its hybrid distinction and provides the benefits of each material while minimizing their disadvantages. Now let’s take a closer look at each component of the Bloom Mattress by Brooklyn Bedding.
The Bloom Hybrid outer cover is non removable. The 11-inch model includes a 1 1/4 inch plush quilted top layer made with organic cotton and Joma wool. For the 14-inch model, the layer measures 2 inches thick. This type of wool is harvested in New Zealand and provides a high loft that’s ideal for mattresses. The combination of natural wool and cotton give the Bloom Hybrid breathability at its surface.
The comfort system of the Bloom Hybrid is composed of Talalay latex. The 11-inch model has a 1 1/2 inch latex layer, while the softer 14-inch model contains 3 inches of latex.
Talalay is a type of natural latex derived from the sap of rubber trees. It tends to be softer, lighter, and have a more consistent firmness than other types of natural latex. Brooklyn Bedding uses Talalay latex that is certified Oeko-Tex class 1, which means it has been tested for hazardous chemicals.
The 11-inch model also contains a transitional polyfoam layer beneath the latex to provide extra support. The 14-inch model does not include this component.
Similar to other hybrid mattresses, the Bloom Hybrid’s support core is made of pocketed coils.
These coils measure 6 inches thick in the 11-inch model and 8 inches thick in the 14-inch model.
The coils provide base support that stabilizes the bed and maintains an even surface for sleepers. A final 1-inch layer of high-density polyfoam sits underneath the coils. This helps reinforce the pocketed coils as they compress and adds durability to the mattress.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress Best for?
We think the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom mattress has something to offer every type of sleeper. Overall, the Bloom Hybrid’s latex-based comfort system and coil-based support core provide both moderate body-contouring comfort and resilient support. The majority of sleepers will be able to get a good night’s sleep regardless of their sleep position preference.
Side sleepers tend to prefer a slightly softer sleep surface, although this will also depend on the sleeper’s body weight. A softer mattress provides cushioning for the most common pressure points in side sleepers, the hips and shoulders. Bloom Hybrid models with medium (5) feels will likely be most comfortable for side sleepers who weigh up to 230 pounds, while the firm (7) feel will probably be the better option for those who weigh more than 230 pounds.
Combination sleepers shift between all three sleep positions, side, stomach, and back, throughout the night. While many combination sleepers tend to favor one position, they face the challenge of finding a mattress that feels comfortable in every sleep posture. We found the Bloom Hybrid’s balanced feel offered great comfort for a wide variety of sleep positions. Sleepers should choose a firmness level that’s in line with support requirements for their body weight.
Back sleepers typically experience the most pressure in their lumbar area or lower back. They require a mattress that provides even support without excessive sagging. Soft mattresses lack support, causing sleepers to sink too deeply into the mattress and disrupting proper spinal alignment. But overly firm mattresses provide too little cushioning, creating painful pressure points. This means back sleepers often prefer a medium to medium firm mattress with moderate contouring and resilience. Back sleepers who require extra support will probably prefer the firm (7) feel, but the rest are more likely to enjoy the medium (5) feel instead.
Stomach sleepers usually require a firm, even surface that does not conform to the body much. Mattresses that are too soft will allow for the midsection to sink in the mattress, leading to spinal misalignment. Bloom Hybrid models with medium (5) feels are on the softer side, so stomach sleepers who need that extra support around the midsection may prefer the firm (7) feel instead.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress' Performance?
With a latex hybrid construction and two firmness levels to choose from, sleepers of all sizes should likely enjoy the feel of the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid. Body weight can have a significant impact on sleep comfort. How much you weigh will affect what type of mattress you prefer.
Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds don’t put as much pressure on a mattress and tend to prefer softer sleep surfaces. The Talalay latex in the comfort system provides enough cushioning to relieve pressure points for most lighter sleepers. These sleepers will probably feel most comfortable on the medium (5) feel.
Sleepers who weigh between 130 pounds and 230 pounds put moderate pressure on their mattresses and therefore tend to prefer sleep surfaces with a balanced amount of support and body-contouring like the Bloom Hybrid provides. Those who feel more comfortable on a supportive sleep surface should consider the firm (7) feel, but the medium (5) feel will also meet the needs of many sleepers in this weight range.
Sleepers who are over 230 pounds place the most pressure on their mattress. As a result, a more firm, supportive mattress will be the best option to prevent sleepers from sinking too deeply into the sleep surface. For the most part, sleepers in this weight group will prefer the Bloom Hybrid’s firm (7) feel over the medium (5).
Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Mattress Good for Couples?
Overall, the Bloom Hybrid is an excellent option for couples. Compared to other hybrid mattresses on the market, the Bloom offers above average motion isolation and produces minimal noise. These are important factors for couples to consider, especially if one person is a light sleeper who is easily disturbed by sound or motion.
The combination of a latex comfort layer and pocketed coil support core gives this mattress a resilient bounce. Resilience makes movement easier which can be helpful for sex. Importantly, the resilience of the Bloom Hybrid does not compromise motion isolation or a quiet sleep experience.
Lastly, the Bloom Hybrid also boasts moderate edge support and superior temperature neutrality. These are often overlooked but relevant considerations for couples. Edge support increases the usable surface of a mattress while temperature neutrality helps prevent overheating during the night, both important factors when you have two people sharing the same mattress.
