Brooklyn Bedding Mattress Review
Brooklyn Bedding’s signature mattress – marketed as the #BestMattressEver – has undergone multiple redesigns in a few short years. It originally came to market as a mixed foam mattress. As of 2018, however, the mattress has been reengineered as a hybrid.
The latest iteration of the Brooklyn Signature (the bed’s more humble moniker), is constructed in three layers: a support layer of individually pocketed ascension coils, a layer of high-density support foam, and a top layer of gel-infused comfort foam. The cover is made of quilted cotton. The mattress is available in 3 different firmness options in all standard sizes, each 11.5 inches in height.
Here’s a quick look at the pros and cons of the Brooklyn Signature mattress:
|Multiple firmness options available||Limited feedback on newest mattress model|
|Responsive feel suitable for sex||Inconsistent customer service|
|Good edge support||Unknown foam densities|
|Free delivery and long trial period|

The Brooklyn Signature is available in three firmness settings, allowing customers to choose an option that best fits their personal preferences. The firmness scale ranges from 1-10, with 10 being the most firm and 1 being the least firm. The Signature is available in Soft (that rates at a 4), Medium (that rates at a 6), and Firm (that rates at an 8).
The Medium is the company’s best seller. Brooklyn recommends it for couples and combination sleepers. Side sleepers might prefer the Soft, which offers more pressure relief. Stomach and back sleepers who prefer not to “sink” into their mattress might consider the Firm.
The more current version of the Brooklyn Signature is available through the Brooklyn Bedding website.The company also operates several showrooms in Arizona. Some Brooklyn Bedding products, such as sheets and pillows, are available on Amazon. At this time, however, the Signature mattress is not offered on through Amazon.
As mentioned, Brooklyn Bedding has modified its Signature mattress multiple times. The most current model is a hybrid mattress, constructed in three main layers. The support core is 6 inches of 1,024 individually pocketed, 16-gauge coils, which provides the “traditional” bounce and responsiveness many sleepers enjoy. The next layer is two pieces of polyfoam, which provides compression support and contouring properties. The final comfort layer is an additional 1.5 inches of a proprietary gel-infused polyfoam that helps with temperature regulation and stability.
Foam densities for the different firmness options are listed below. The Signature’s cover is a quilted cotton. All the foam used in this mattress is Certi-Pur certified.
|1.5 inches 2 PCF quilted memory foam||1.5 inches 2 PCF quilted memory foam||1.5 inches 2 PCF quilted memory foam|
|2 inches 3.5 PCF TitanFlex polyfoam, 13 ILD (Soft)||2 inches 3.5 PCF Titan Flex polyfoam, 18 ILD (Medium)||4 inches 3 PCF TitanFlex polyfoam, 28 ILD (Firm)|
|2 inches 3.5 PCF TitanFlex transitional polyfoam, 18 ILD (Medium)||2 inches 3.5 PCF TitanFlex transitional polyfoam, 28 ILD (Firm)||2 inches 3.5 PCF TitanFlex transitional polyfoam, 28 ILD (Firm)|

The Brooklyn Signature is rolled, compressed, sealed in plastic, and shipped in a labeled box. Like other “bed in a box” brands, the Signature arrives completely in-tact with no parts and no assembly required.
The Signature typically ships within 1-3 days of ordering and arrives 1-5 days later via FedEx ground. Shipping is free within the contiguous United States. Deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada are available for an additional cost (starting at $250).
When your mattress arrives, you should remove it from the packaging as soon as possible. The foam will need time to fully expand.

Brooklyn Bedding offers a 10-year non-prorated warranty on the Signature Mattress. During the warranty period, the company will repair or replace a defective mattress at no cost to the owner. For full warranty terms, please click here.
Brooklyn Signature Mattress Performance
Because the latest version of the Brooklyn Signature was just introduced in 2018, we don’t have enough data or feedback at this time to properly evaluate the bed’s performance properties. We will update our review after putting the Brooklyn Signature through our testing procedure. In the meantime, our ratings of the Signature’s performance are based on the information we know currently.
With an individually pocketed coil support system and dense foam layers, the Brooklyn Signature should offer solid support for the majority of sleepers. The transitional foam layers used in this mattress contain high density foams that should provide deep compression support, which is especially important to maintain alignment for a heavier sleeper.
The Brooklyn Signature uses a 16-gauge coil in its support system. That’s relatively thin. (The gauge system is from 12-18, with 12 being the thickest wire and 18 being the thinnest.) A thinner gauge usually results in a more conforming feel, especially when combined with the Brooklyn Signature’s foam comfort layers.
Thinner coils conform better, but they generally do not hold up as well overtime. In general, innerspring and hybrid mattress do not usually hold up as well as foam or latex beds do. This iteration of the Brooklyn Signature has not been on the market long enough for us to have any data on its long-term durability.
Motion isolation refers to how well a mattress keeps movement from traveling across the bed. Hybrid and innerspring mattress are notorious for poor motion isolation, but the Brooklyn Signature’s denser foam comfort layers help to combat this problem.
The Brooklyn Signature’s innerspring support system provides reinforced edge support. This makes the entire bed suitable for sleeping and prevents sagging around the perimeter.
Hybrid mattresses combine the contour of foam with the more traditional bouncy feel of an innerspring mattress. The Brooklyn Signature has enough bounce and response that it does not restrict movement or sexual activity. With 1,024 individually pocketed coils, the Signature should have a more reactive feel.
With cooling-gel comfort layers and a pocketed coil support system, the Brooklyn Signature should not sleep hot. Heat retention should not be a problem for most sleepers.
LIke most bed-in-a-box mattress, the Brooklyn Signature might produce a temporary smell when first unpacked. This smell should not be overwhelming or last more than a few hours.
