Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Mattress Review
Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid
Based in Phoenix, Brooklyn Bedding is a family-owned bedding and mattress company with a full line of hybrid and memory foam mattress offerings.

The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is the company’s most affordable hybrid mattress. Available in a single firmness option (medium-firm) the mattress combines three inches of foam with a supportive layer of individually pocketed coils and high-density foam. The following review will provide more details into the construction and performance of this mattress, what it feels like to sleep on, and pricing and company policies.

How Much Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Mattress?
The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid mattress is one of the brand’s lower priced mattress models, with price points well below the company’s other hybrid models, including the Aurora and Signature Hybrids. In fact, the price is lower than many hybrids from other manufacturers as well. The quality materials and construction, and level of comfort and support make this a good value pick, especially for parents shopping for teenagers.

How Does the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Mattress Feel?
Overall, the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is a responsive, medium-firm mattress that veers closer to the feeling of sleeping on a traditional innerspring mattress than an all-foam mattress. The fairly thin comfort layers provide only a moderate amount of body contouring, so you will feel more like you are sleeping on the mattress, rather than in it. Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds might find the Bowery Hybrid a bit too firm for their comfort, as they will not sink into the fom very much at all.
That said, the Bowery Hybrid does offer a fair amount of pressure relief for individuals who weigh more than 130 pounds — but again, without the same level of body contouring as an all-foam mattress. This ensures that the mattress maintains a good level of temperature neutrality as well, so those who tend to sleep hot should find the mattress comfortable.
What Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Made Of?
The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is a 10-inch hybrid memory foam and coil mattress. The mattress features three inches of memory foam atop a support core made from up to 961 individually-pocketed coils and a 1-inch layer of high density polyfoam. The result is a medium firm mattress that provides a mix of cushioning and support for a variety of sleep positions and body types.
One of the more unique features of the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is that the top layer of memory foam is actually quilted into the cover. Instead of a separate layer of foam wrapped in fabric, the top inch of gel memory foam is quilted into the cover. This foam is designed to resist forming deep body impressions and keep you cool while you sleep. The surface of the mattress itself is smooth and soft, with a feeling similar to a woven knit fabric.
The next layer of foam is two inches of open cell comfort foam. This foam allows for maximum airflow to keep you cool while ensuring cradling comfort and pressure relief. The individually pocketed Ascension coils are designed to provide support while also reducing motion transfer; they get an additional level of support via a one-inch layer of high density foam.

What Type of Sleeper Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Mattress Best for?
Side sleepers of all body types give the Brooklyn Bowery a “good” rating. For those weighing over 230 pounds, the hybrid offers a good balance of pressure relief and support for good spinal alignment. Although side sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds give the mattress a “good” rating, some noted that the mattress was too firm and doesn’t offer quite enough pressure relief or support because they don’t sink down into the foam enough. If you fall into this weight category, you may wish to consider the Brooklyn Bowery, an all-foam mattress that offers more compression, which reduces pressure and provides more support.
Because the Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid receives fairly consistent ratings among sleepers with different body types and sleep position preferences, it’s a good choice for combination sleepers. The primary exception is for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds, who give the mattress a fair rating. Overall, though, the memory foam and coil construction provides adequate pressure relief and support, allowing most everyone to sleep well.
Back sleepers also give the Bowery Hybrid a “good” rating. Like side sleepers, back sleepers weighing over 230 pounds report that the mattress provides a good mix of pressure relief and support. However, those weighing between 130 and 230 pounds prefer the Brooklyn Bowery despite sleeping well on the Bowery Hybrid. Again, the Bowery’s conforming foam layers provide more cradling and support, supporting better alignment and reducing the chance of waking up sore.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid's Performance?
The Bowery Hybrid is less affected by body weight than many other mattresses, as evidenced by the consistent tester ratings for all body types and sleep positions. Only those sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds and sleep on their stomachs give the mattress a “fair” rating; all other weights and positions rated it “good.” That said, if you weigh less than 130 pounds, you may find the mattress a bit too firm and prefer a softer mattress that conforms more closely to your body.
Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid Mattress Good for Couples?
Because the Brooklyn Bowery is well-suited for a variety of sleep positions and body types, it’s generally good for couples. Compared to all-foam mattress models, the Bowery Hybrid is easier to move around on, and provides a higher level of edge support. On the downside, it does not isolate motion as much as a memory foam model like the Brooklyn Bowery, so if one or both partners is an exceptionally light sleeper, they may be disturbed by their partner moving around or getting in and out of bed. And while the Bowery Hybrid does sleep cooler than all-foam options, if you sleep especially hot, you might find that it gets warmer than you prefer. Still, the mattress is a good choice for couples, offering a supportive and comfortable bed at an affordable price.
