The Titan Mattress by Brooklyn Bedding is a unique product designed specifically to meet the needs of heavier people. Its design is highly durable, and offers the rigid support needed for individuals who weigh over 230 pounds.
The Brooklyn Bedding Titan Mattress is a hybrid, meaning that it utilizes both metal coils and layers of polyfoam. A 6-inch core of individually pocketed coils and a 2-inch layer of high-density polyfoam make up the support core. The comfort core consists of a 2-inch firm polyfoam layer and a 1-inch layer of gel memory foam.
The Titan rates at about a 7-8 out of 10 on our 10-point firmness scale. This puts it in the firm to very firm category. The manufacturer advertises the Titan at an 8 out of 10, but some of our testers found it to be closer to a 7 out of 10.
Brooklyn Bedding offers a diverse lineup of mattresses, but this review will look specifically at the Titan by Brooklyn Bedding. We will cover the Titan Mattress’s construction, pricing, performance ratings, and much more.

How Much Is the Titan Mattress?
Compared to competing models, the Titan Mattress is priced attractively. There are only a handful of beds designed specifically for heavier sleepers. Out of the few models in this category, the Titan is one of the most affordable.
There are also two optional add-ons that you can purchase with the Titan mattress:
- A cooling top panel with phase change molecule technology
- A Talalay latex mattress topper for added conforming
These add-ons will affect the price of your mattress. Pricing for add-ons varies depending on the size of the mattress you order.

How Does the Titan Mattress Feel?
The Titan Mattress feels very supportive and firm, with just enough responsiveness to feel quite comfortable. It has moderate bounce and a soft, cool cover. Our testers noted that this is a mattress that you sleep on and not in, comparing the Titan to softer foam mattresses that tend to sink too much.
The Titan Mattress is quite firm. At 7-8 out of 10 on the firmness scale, this bed will be most comfortable for those who sleep on their backs or stomachs. Some of our side-sleeping testers found that the Titan felt too firm. The comfort layer is relatively thin (1 inch of memory foam and 2 inches of firm polyfoam), so there is less conforming on the Titan than on the average hybrid mattress.
This mattress excels at exactly what it is designed for: Meeting the needs of heavier sleepers. Individuals who weigh more than 230 pounds will get the deep compression support they need for proper spinal alignment. The Titan’s coil support layer features hundreds of individually pocketed coils, which are able to respond individually to changes in pressure. This creates a much more responsive feel than you would get from a standard hybrid or innerspring mattress.
Overall, we found the Titan to be highly supportive and very comfortable - particularly on our backs and stomachs. It also felt very durable and well-made.
What Is the Titan Made Of?
The Titan Mattress is a hybrid design, which means it utilizes both metal coils and modern foam layers. Hybrid beds like this aim to offer the best of both worlds: conforming and comfort from foams, and deep compression support from metal coils.
For its underlying support layer, the Titan mattress uses a 6-inch layer of pocketed coils, with a 2-inch layer of high-density base foam. The coils are Brooklyn Bedding’s own proprietary TitanCaliber™ coils, which are engineered to provide industrial-grade support. Each coil is individually wrapped in fabric, which allows them to move independently. This reduces motion transfer and improves the responsiveness of the mattress.
The Titan’s comfort layer consists of a 1” quilted top with gel memory foam, and a 2-inch layer of TitanFlex™, a proprietary polyfoam material with a responsive feel and targeted pressure point relief. The quilted cover features gel memory foam, which is added for enhanced cooling as well as a softer initial feel. The thicker TitanFlex™ layer provides more conforming, allowing the mattress to respond to the shape of the sleeper’s body, without excess sinkage.
The Titan Mattress is designed specifically for the needs of those over 230 pounds. Because of this, its design is very durable and heavy-duty. Every component is engineered to meet the needs of heavier sleepers, while also maintaining mattress quality and support for years to come.

Does the Titan Isolate Motion?
The Titan Mattress isolates motion well. Movement on one side of the bed should not significantly disturb the sleeper on the opposing side.
Our testers noticed little motion transfer on the Titan. This is due in part to the bed’s pocketed coil design. Because the coils are individually wrapped in fabric, they are able to move independently, helping to reduce motion transfer. The Titan’s foam layers also help to absorb movement. With that said, the Titan’s firm foam layers do have a bit more bounce than the average foam mattress.
Does the Titan Sleep Cool?
If you are someone who tends to sleep hot at night, finding a mattress that maintains a comfortable sleeping temperature will be very important. Fortunately, the Titan Mattress does a good job of staying cool at night.
The Titan utilizes metal springs, which help to keep air circulating and reduce the risk of the bed getting too warm. The top layer of memory foam is also gel-infused, which helps to draw heat away from the body.
Our testers found that the base model of the Titan Mattress did a good job of maintaining a comfortable sleeping position. For the warmest sleepers, we recommend looking into the optional cooling cover that is available for an extra fee.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
The Titan Mattress has minimal sag around the edges, and scored well in our tests for edge support. If you like to sit on the edge of your mattress, or if you have difficulty getting in and out of bed, then good edge support is an important factor.
The Titan’s hybrid design helps with this, as the bed’s coils provide deep compression support throughout the bed. The firm feel also contributes, as it prevents excessive sinkage when sitting on the side of the bed. The Titan has edge support ratings that are significantly higher than the average mattress.
Is It Good for Sex?
The Titan Mattress rates well for sex. It is firm enough that it won’t sink under the weight of a couple, and it’s responsive and bouncy feel is ideal for sex. The Titan’s high edge support ratings also contribute to its performance in this category. The Titan is also significantly quieter than many hybrid and innerspring mattresses, thanks to its pocketed coil design.
What About Off-gassing?
Most new mattresses, including the Titan Mattress, will “off-gas” for a few days after initial setup. This term refers to the tendency for new mattresses to release some unpleasant odors after they are first set up. These odors come from gasses that are trapped in the foam materials during manufacturing. They are largely thought to be harmless, but can smell unpleasant and chemical-like.
Our testers noticed some odor from the Titan Mattress for the first couple of days. If you find the odors unpleasant, we recommend setting up the mattress and letting it sit uncovered for several days in a well-ventilated room.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Titan Mattress Best for?
- Side Sleepers: Many side sleepers may find that the Titan Mattress feels too firm for their preferences. Remember that the Titan is a 7-8 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Most side sleepers prefer soft to moderately firm mattresses. With that said, the Titan Mattress is designed for heavier sleepers, and it performs fairly well for heavier people who sleep on their side. If you are a side sleeper and have found that you sink in too much on the average mattress, a firmer model like the Titan may be a good fit. If you weigh less than 230 pounds, you will most likely find that the Titan puts too much pressure on the hips and shoulders. There is an optional mattress topper available that may be worth considering for side sleepers.
- Combination Sleepers: For those who sleep in a variety of positions, the Titan Mattress performs fairly well. Our testers found it to be most comfortable on their backs and stomachs, and reasonably comfortable on their sides. Again, this bed is specifically designed for those over 230 pounds, so it performs best for this category of sleepers.
- Back Sleepers: Most back sleepers will find the Titan Mattress to be comfortable and supportive. Those who sleep on their back tend to prefer firmer beds, and the Titan is about a 7 to 8 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Most heavier back sleepers will find that the Titan has just enough give to feel responsive and comfortable, while also providing the deep compression support needed to properly align the spine.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Titan Mattress's Performance?
The Titan Mattress is designed specifically for heavier sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. It performs best for this category of sleeper. The Titan features an industrial-strength design with deep compression support. It’s also a very firm mattress, at about a 7-8 out of 10. All these factors mean one thing: This mattress excels for sleepers in higher weight classes, but is likely not the best option for those who weigh less.
For people over 230 pounds, the Titan Mattress is ideal. It’s tough to beat the Titan’s blend of responsiveness, cooling, and deep support.
Sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds may find that the Titan feels too firm. This is particularly true for side sleepers, who will likely feel too much pressure on their hips and shoulders.
Sleepers around 130-230 pounds may find the Titan comfortable, depending on their comfort preferences and sleep position. Back and stomach sleepers are more likely to find the Titan comfortable, compared to side sleepers.
Is the Titan Mattress Good for Couples?
The Titan Mattress will be good for some couples. The Titan Mattress scores well for many of the traits that are important for couples, including motion isolation, edge support, and cooling.
However, the big consideration here is the firmness of the Titan Mattress. If you and your partner have similar comfort preferences and both prefer firm beds, you should both sleep soundly on the Titan.
Unfortunately, many couples tend to have different preferences, with one preferring firmer and the other opting for softer beds. If this is the situation in your household, the Titan Mattress is less likely to be a good fit.
The Titan is about a 7 or 8 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Couples with opposing comfort preferences will likely find a better compromise in a moderate-firmness bed, somewhere around a 5 or 6 out of 10.
