Brunswick Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The competitively priced Brunswick hybrid mattress is sure to appeal to many Canadian customers. With its plush Euro-top and sturdy springs, the mattress attains a comfortable balance of pressure relief and support. The medium firm feel works for back, side, and stomach sleepers alike.
In the Brunswick, customers will find all the typical advantages of a hybrid mattress. These include effective temperature regulation for hot sleepers, as well as strong edge support and a responsive surface for easier movement.
Individuals who share the bed with a partner may prefer the Douglas, a memory foam mattress that excels at motion isolation. GoodMorning.com also makes another all-foam bed, the Novosbed, which is available for purchase in the U.S. as well.

How Does the Brunswick Mattress Feel?
The Brunswick Mattress comes in at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, or medium firm. The mattress offers a combination of support and pressure relief that is appropriate for a wide variety of sleeper types.
The Euro-top cover and gel memory foam provide plush cushioning to alleviate pressure points. Beneath this, the transitional layer of Tri-Zone polyfoam adds zoned lumbar support and prevents sleepers from sinking in too far. The pocketed coil support core provides targeted support for the spine.
For most sleepers, the Brunswick gives the feeling of sleeping partly "in" and partly "on" the mattress. Despite the close-conforming comfort layers, the mattress is very responsive and won't cause the feeling of being trapped in the bed.
What Is the Brunswick Mattress Made Of?
The Brunswick Mattress has a 12-inch profile consisting of a Euro-top cover, gel memory foam and transitional polyfoam layers, and a pocketed coil support core. While 12 inches is standard for a hybrid mattress, this height is slightly taller than average and customers may need to purchase deep-pocket fitted sheets.
The Brunswick has a knit cover made of blended polyester, spandex, and sustainable Canadian-grown hemp. It's quilted with a quarter-inch of polyfiber and three-quarters of an inch of gel memory foam in an integrated Euro-top design. These components work together to deliver a pressure-relieving and breathable sleep surface that draws heat away from the sleeper.
An additional inch of gel memory foam provides added pressure relief. This layer is followed by a transitional 1-inch layer of Tri-Zone ecofoam, with extra support for the lumbar area. The Tri-Zone ecofoam is partially made with soybean oil.
The support core of the Brunswick consists of an 8-inch pocketed coil layer. These coils are constructed with multi-tempered steel and have a coil count of 828 in a queen-size mattress, which is around average compared to competing models. Thicker coils in the center third of the mattress provide zoned lumbar support to help maintain spinal alignment. The pocketed coils are encased in high-density polyfoam that lends additional edge support. A thin layer of polyfiber also runs along the top and bottom of the coils.
Does it Isolate Motion?
The Brunswick allows some movement to transfer from one side of the bed to the other. However, this mattress does a much better job of isolating motion than a traditional innerspring mattress. This is thanks to the foam comfort layers, which absorb movement, and the pocketed coils, which are designed to function independently of one another. Sensitive sleepers may notice when their sleeping partner gets in or out of bed, but all in all, the Brunswick isn't a bad choice for couples.
Does it Sleep Cool?
With its hybrid construction and gel-infused foams, the Brunswick is a generally a good pick for hot sleepers. The breathable cover and gel infusions are designed to whisk away heat from the sleeper, while the pocketed coils stimulate airflow and reduce heat retention. Hybrid mattresses tend to be a favorite with people who live in warm climates, and this mattress is no exception. However, the close conforming of the memory foam comfort layer does allow some heat to build up, especially among sleepers who weigh over 105 kg, since they sink deeper into the mattress.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
Multi-tempered steel coils and a high-density polyfoam encasement reinforce the perimeter of the Brunswick, providing a sturdy base. However, the foam and fiber layers in the comfort system above it do compress significantly under pressure when sleeping near or sitting on the edge of the bed.
People who share the bed may feel cramped and unstable on a mattress with weak edges. By contrast, a mattress with strong edge support allows each person to relax and spread out. For people with limited mobility, edge support also allows for better leverage when getting in and out of bed.
Is It Good for Sex?
The Brunswick has the bounciness that most couples prefer for sex. The pocketed coils provide pushback that facilitates movement, while the Euro-top and foam comfort layers provide some traction.
The one main drawback for sex is that the pocketed coils may eventually start to produce some squeaks and creaks. However, the noise should be minimal compared to a mattress with interconnected coils.
What About Off-gassing?
Off-gassing is minor with the Brunswick mattress. While the foam layers may emit some odors upon arrival, these should dissipate quickly through the coil layers.
All synthetic foams off-gas to some extent when volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released into the air. The process is considered harmless, and the Brunswick is made with CertiPUR-US certified foams that are low in VOCs. However, those who are sensitive to smell may prefer to air out the mattress for a few days before sleeping on it.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Brunswick Mattress Best For?
The Brunswick mattress accommodates most sleeping styles, but it performs especially well for back and side sleepers who weigh more than 105 kilograms.
Side Sleepers: Due to its medium firm feel, the Brunswick is best-suited to side sleepers weighing between 60 kilograms and 105 kilograms. For these sleepers, the memory foam contours to reduce pressure points, and the pocketed coils help to promote better spinal alignment. However, side sleepers who fall outside of this weight range kilograms may experience some slight pressure points under the hips and shoulders.
Combination Sleepers: The Brunswick has a versatile design that adapts well to back, stomach, and side sleeping. Thanks to its responsive surface, combination sleepers should also find it easy to switch positions on this mattress.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers who weigh less than 105 kilograms receive good lumbar support from the Brunswick's zoned foam and pocketed coils layers. By contrast, those who weigh more than 105 kilograms may prefer a somewhat firmer mattress.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers tend to prefer a firm surface and a supportive core to keep the spine aligned. The Brunswick is fairly successful at maintaining spinal alignment for sleepers under 60 kilograms, though some sleepers above this weight may experience sagging under heavier body parts such as the hips.
How Does Body Weight Impact Performance?
The feel of a mattress, and its ability to provide support and pressure relief, are heavily influenced by the sleeper's body weight. The Brunswick is classed as medium firm (6), which is generally considered a middle ground that appeals to most sleeper types.
Those who weigh less than 60 kilograms experience less contouring and may find the Brunswick firmer than other sleepers. Whether lying on the side, back, or stomach, the Brunswick should provide sufficient support and moderate pressure relief for sleepers in this category.
Side sleepers between 60 and 104 kilograms receive a near-ideal balance of pressure relief and lumbar support from the Brunswick mattress. This is not surprising, as the Brunswick's medium firm feel favors even weight distribution in this position. Back sleepers also give favorable ratings to the Brunswick, although stomach sleepers may not receive strong enough support to keep the hips properly aligned.
Individuals who weigh more than 104 kilograms exert more pressure on the mattress. For side sleepers, the mattress forms a pressure-relieving cradle that fosters healthy spinal alignment. For back and stomach sleepers, however, the mattress may allow excessive sagging under the hips. A firmer model would provide better support for back and stomach sleepers in this weight group.
Is the Brunswick Mattress Good for Couples?
The Brunswick has benefits and drawbacks depending on what a couple values most in a mattress. Due to its thick comfort system that includes multiple memory foam layers, the Brunswick does a good job of relieving pressure and isolating motion, which is beneficial for those who share a bed with a partner who frequently tosses and turns. However, the pocketed coils in the support core may start to produce some noise as time goes on. An all-foam model may be a better choice for those who are sensitive to sound. For sex, the bed offers a responsive surface with some traction, which most couples should find satisfactory.
