Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Overview
Brooklyn Bedding is a U.S.-based mattress and bedding accessory company. The brand currently offers six individual mattress models. For this review, we’ll take an in-depth look at the Bloom Hybrid, also known simply as the Bloom.
The Bloom is Brooklyn Bedding’s only latex hybrid. The mattress is constructed with a 3-inch comfort layer of responsive Talalay latex, along with pocketed coils and high-density base foam in the support core. The bed’s moisture-wicking cover is made from a blend of natural wool and organic cotton. Altogether, the mattress measures 12 inches thick.
Customers can choose from three firmness settings: soft (3.5), medium (6), and firm (7.5). These settings vary in terms of how closely the mattress contours to the body. Each option has a distinct feel that best suits different sleeper weights and positions.
Read on to learn more about the Bloom Hybrid from Brooklyn Bedding. This review includes performance and sleeper ratings, construction and pricing information, and an overview of Brooklyn Bedding’s shipping, return, and warranty policies. We’ll also provide detailed mattress comparisons to help you understand how the Bloom stacks up against other Brooklyn Bedding models and leading hybrids from different brands.

Meet Our Testing Team
- Any type of sleeper in terms of body weight or preferred sleep position. Whether you’re a lightweight person who prefers side-sleeping or a heavier back- or stomach-sleeper, the Bloom’s three firmness options ensure most people can find a setting that is comfortable and supportive.
- Hot sleepers. The Bloom offers excellent temperature neutrality thanks to its moisture-wicking cover, ventilated latex comfort layer, and pocketed coil support core with steady air circulation.
- Couples. Compared to other hybrid mattresses, the Bloom offers better-than-average motion isolation and produces minimal noise.
- Customers seeking an exceptionally durable mattress. Latex is more resilient than other mattress materials, and the Bloom’s 8-inch pocketed coils provide strong reinforcement to the entire bed. As a result, this mattress has a longer-than-average expected lifespan.
Not Recommended for...
- Sleepers who prefer the close body-contouring of all-foam beds. The Bloom conforms to the body more closely than many competing latex hybrids, but it is also fairly responsive does not provide the same pressure-relieving cradle as models made from memory foam or polyfoam.
- Shoppers on a budget. Although the Bloom is priced competitively with other latex hybrids, the mattress is somewhat spendy.

How Is the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Constructed?
The Bloom’s quilted cover is made from a blend of natural Joma wool and organic cotton. Due to wool’s above-average breathability and moisture-wicking properties, the cover minimizes body heat retention and helps the mattress sleep cool.
The mattress has a 3-inch comfort layer of blended Talalay latex. Although latex is generally more responsive than memory foam or polyfoam, the Bloom’s comfort layer contours more closely to the sleeper’s body than layers found in other latex hybrids. The result for most sleepers is a balance between “sleeping on” and “sleeping in” the mattress, though conforming level varies by firmness setting.
The latex is ventilated, which helps promote steady airflow through the interior and keep the mattress cool. Latex is also more durable than foams and other materials used in mattress layers. For this reason, the mattress has a longer-than-average expected lifespan. Read more about these qualities in our ‘Durability’ and ‘Temperature Neutrality’ ratings breakdowns below.
Like other hybrids, the Bloom’s support core consists of pocketed coils. These coils, which measure 8 inches thick, help stabilize the bed and maintain even support for sleepers. They also bolster the edges and minimize sinkage when people sit along the perimeter, preventing feelings of “roll-off” for sleepers.
A 1-inch layer of high-density polyfoam lies beneath the coils. This base component provides extra reinforcement for the coil layer.
The Bloom Hybrid has a 12-inch profile, which is considered above-average. The bed’s height allows space for a deep latex comfort layer without sacrificing a thick coil system and reinforcing base layer. The result is exceptional support for all sleepers, particularly heavyweight individuals.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?
The Bloom Hybrid is available in a soft (3.5), medium (6), or firm (7.5) setting. Each option varies in terms of body-contouring and sleeper support.
The soft setting conforms closely to the sleeper’s body, which can help alleviate pressure in sensitive areas. The medium setting offers some contouring but is also fairly fairly supportive, which helps maintain a balanced feel and minimize sagging for heavier individuals. The firm setting delivers enhanced support and contours to a very minimal extent.
Due to these differences, each setting is better suited to people in different weight and position groups. Below, we’ll discuss the most comfortable and supportive options for lightweight, average weight, and heavyweight sleepers.
Now, let’s take a detailed look at each performance rating for the Bloom Hybrid. These ratings are based on findings from our internal and external testing teams, as well as verified owner experiences.
The Bloom Hybrid is a fairly new mattress model. This means we have not had enough time to test the bed over the course of its projected lifespan. For this reason, our durability rating for the mattress is based on its materials, quality of construction, owner experiences, and Brooklyn Bedding’s reputation.
We expect the Bloom to perform for at least eight years, which gives the mattress excellent durability compared to the average mattress lifespan of six to eight years. Latex is a highly resilient material that resists excessive sagging and deterioration better than polyfoam or memory foam. The Bloom’s thick pocketed coils also reinforce the mattress very well and protect the edges from deep sinkage over time.
We evaluated the Bloom for motion isolation by having two testers lie down on the mattress at the same time. One tester moved around on the mattress while the other felt for motion transferring across the surface. The mattress did not completely eliminate transfer, but overall the mattress isolated motion very well. Our overnight sleep testers reported the same findings, including those who shared them mattress with a sleep partner.
Latex hybrids tend to very responsive and isolate minimal motion transfer as a result, making the Bloom a notable exception. The Bloom’s performance in this category is primarily due to its latex layer, which absorbs movement better than the more responsive comfort layers found in other, similarly constructed latex hybrid models.
Our testers noticed some initial off-gassing odor when unpackaging the Bloom, which is typical of latex hybrids. However, these smells had completely dissipated once the mattress had been unboxed for a few days.
All mattresses emit some off-gassing at first, but the strongest and most persistent smells are associated with all-foam and all-latex models. Latex hybrids like the Bloom have better airflow thanks to their coil layers, and this helps eliminate unpleasant smells more quickly.
To evaluate the Bloom for pressure relief, we asked testers in different weight groups to lie down on a sensory pad that monitors pressure build-up throughout the body. Our findings indicate all three firmness settings provide adequate pressure relief, though testers across each weight group noted some added pressure in the shoulders and hips.
Although the Bloom conforms closer than many other latex hybrids, the comfort layer still retains the natural responsiveness of latex. We recommend the softest setting for sleepers who experience frequent pressure-point issues because it provides more cushioning to the shoulders and hips. This is particularly beneficial to side sleepers. The two firmer settings also alleviate some pressure, but how closely they conform largely depends on the sleeper’s weight.
Even compared to other latex hybrids, which tend to offer better-than-average temperature neutrality, the Bloom is a standout. The mattress provides a cool, comfortable sleep environment thanks to its moisture-wicking wool-blend cover, a ventilated latex comfort layer that absorbs minimal body heat, and steady airflow through the coil layer.
Generally, softer mattresses sleep warmer than firmer ones because they provide a deeper body cradle. However, our testers have found the Bloom offers excellent temperature neutrality across all three firmness settings.
Our testers evaluated the Bloom’s edge support by sitting and lying down near the perimeter of the mattress. Although the firmest setting feels sturdiest, the mattress offers very good edge support in all three settings. Testers in each weight group noted very little sinkage sitting along the perimeter, as owners often do when getting into and out of bed, and they did not experience feelings of “roll-off” when lying near the edges.
The Bloom’s sturdy edge support is due to its support core. The durable 8-inch pocketed coils and high-density foam base reinforce the mattress very well, and over time, these components help protect the edges from significant sinkage.
Like other hybrids, the Bloom has the potential to squeak and creak on occasion, and noises may become more disruptive as the bed nears the end of its lifespan. However, our testers found the mattress silent when bearing weight.
Pocketed coils tend to be the quietest coil type. They are not joined together like other coil types, such as bonnell or offset, creating less potential for squeaks and creaks. For this reason, hybrids typically produce much less noise than traditional innersprings.
The Bloom Hybrid’s balance of responsiveness and body-contouring make it excellent for sex. The latex does not provide the same body-hugging sensation as memory foam or polyfoam, allowing couples to switch positions more easily, but the material also provides good traction. Additionally, the quieter pocketed coils make the Bloom fairly discreet during sex.
The ideal firmness and thickness settings for a mattress largely depend on a sleeper’s body weight, shape, and preferred sleep position. In order to better inform our readers and avoid subjectivity in our review, the Tuck team evaluated the bed with sleep testers of varying body types and position preferences.
Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.
Our lighter sleep testers found the Bloom most comfortable in the soft and medium settings. The soft feel is optimal for side sleepers who prefer extra padding beneath the shoulders and hips for full spinal alignment. This feel is also the best option for sleepers who enjoy sinking deeper into their mattress.
The medium feel does not contour as closely, making it ideal for lighter people – especially back- and stomach-sleepers – who prefer a balance of pressure relief and support.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.
Our testers in the average weight group agreed the medium setting was most comfortable. The mattress offered some contouring to alleviate discomfort in pressure-sensitive areas, but it was also very supportive and they did not experience too much sagging.
Depending on their individual preferences, the Bloom’s other two settings may be more suitable for some average weight sleepers. Those who enjoy deep body-contouring should opt for the soft feel, while sleepers who want very little contouring may find the firm setting more supportive.
Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.
Our heavyweight testers preferred the firm feel because it provided the most even support. This can be attributed to the setting’s minimal contouring, along with the Bloom’s sturdy design. The testers also found the medium setting offered ample pressure relief, though they found it less supportive than the firm setting.
The heavier testers experienced sagging with the soft setting. Excessive sagging causes sleepers to sink deeply into their mattress, which interferes with spinal alignment and often leads to added pressure on the body. Although some sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds prefer exceptionally soft mattresses, we recommend the firm or medium settings for most heavyweight sleepers.

How Does the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom Hybrid Compare to Other Beds?
We urge all mattress shoppers to compare different brands and models before deciding which bed will work best for them. In the next section, we’ll see how the Bloom stacks up against other Brooklyn Bedding models and similar hybrids from competing brands.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Brooklyn Bedding Signature
Like the Bloom, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature is a hybrid mattress available in soft, medium, and firm settings. Both models excel at edge support due to their pocketed coil layers. Additionally, the Bloom and Signature each offer a balance of conforming and support, resulting in a mix of “sleeping in” and “sleeping on” the mattress.
There are notable differences between these models, as well. Instead of latex, the Signature is constructed with comfort and transitional layers of gel-infused polyfoam. These materials are not as durable as latex, giving the Signature a shorter expected lifespan. The foams also absorb more body heat. Although the Signature sleeps fairly cool for most, the mattress does not quite match the Bloom’s excellent temperature neutrality.
The Signature is a great option for shoppers on a budget, as its price-point is significantly lower than the Bloom’s. However, we recommend the Bloom to those seeking a bed with exceptional durability and temperature neutrality.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Brooklyn Bedding Aurora
The Brooklyn Bedding Aurora is another hybrid model constructed with polyfoam comfort and transitional layers. The top layer is infused with copper, which has natural cooling properties, and the Aurora’s cover features phase-change material to help regulate the sleeper’s body temperature. As a result, the Aurora and Bloom each provide exceptional temperature neutrality, even by hybrid mattress standards.
The Aurora is available in soft, medium, and firm feels. The bed’s foam layers absorb most motion transfer and conform closer to the sleeper’s body. However, the materials are more susceptible to sagging than latex, giving the Bloom a longer expected lifespan. The Aurora and Bloom share other similarities, such as strong edge support and low noise potential.
The Aurora and Bloom have comparable price-points, as well. Customers choosing between these two models should consider whether they prefer the pressure relief and motion isolation of foam, or the responsiveness and resiliency of latex.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid
The Brooklyn Bedding Bowery Hybrid is a 10-inch model built with a memory foam comfort layer and a 6-inch pocketed coil support core. Unlike other Brooklyn Bedding models, the Bowery Hybrid is only available in a medium-firm (6.5) setting. The bed has a supportive feel with minimal contouring, placing it between the Bloom’s medium and firm settings.
Due to this fixed firmness setting, the Bowery Hybrid may be too firm for lighter people – side-sleepers in particular. And although the Bowery Hybrid sleeps fairly cool due to its pocketed coil layer, the memory foam layer absorbs more body heat from sleepers. Of these two models, we recommend the Bloom for those who run hot at night.
The Bowery Hybrid is Brooklyn Bedding’s least expensive hybrid model, priced at $799 in a queen-size, which is $1,000 and costs much less than the Bloom. For many shoppers, choosing between the two beds will likely depend on their budget.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Brooklyn Bedding Spartan
The Brooklyn Bedding Spartan features comfort and transitional layers made of gel-infused polyfoam and gel memory foam, rather than latex. These materials allows the Spartan to absorb more motion transfer than the Bloom’s latex layer, and conform more closely to the sleeper’s body. The Bloom is more responsive by comparison, but the latex is also less susceptible to sagging over time.
Both mattresses are available in the same three firmness settings. Each one also provides very good temperature neutrality. The Spartan includes a performance-fabric cover infused with phase-change material that absorbs body heat until the surface reaches an optimal temperature,
allowing sleepers to remain cool throughout the night. The Bloom and Spartan offer strong edge support and better-than-average motion isolation, as well.
The Spartan costs slightly more than the Bloom in a queen-size, but both beds are fairly expensive. The preference of responsive latex over body-contouring foam, or vice versa, will be the most important consideration for most buyers.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Avocado Green
Compared to the Bloom, the Avocado Green hybrid has a very responsive feel that is more akin to sleeping “on” – as opposed to “in” – the mattress. The bed is available in 11-inch non-pillow-top and 13-inch pillow-top designs. Although the pillow-top provides some initial padding, both versions of the Avocado Green are considered firm.
As a result, the Bloom may be more suitable for light and average weight sleepers, especially those who sleep on their sides. Our testers weighing less than 230 pounds felt some added pressure in the shoulders and hips when lying on the Avocado Green. That said, both beds provide very sturdy edge support and excellent durability. Considering their responsive surfaces, the Bloom and Avocado Green also offer better-than-average motion isolation.
The pillow-top Avocado Green and Bloom share the same price-point in a queen-size, while the Avocado Green with no pillow-top costs significantly less.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. Awara Mattress
The Awara Mattress is one of the most responsive latex hybrids we’ve tested. This can largely be attributed to its comfort layer of Dunlop latex, which tends to be much bouncier than the Talalay latex found in models like the Bloom. The Awara is available in one firmness setting, medium-firm (6.5), and does not conform to the sleeper’s body very much. This makes it better for people who prefer sleeping “on” their mattress.
Lightweight and average weight sleepers may find the Awara too firm, but we found the mattress provides very good support for heavier individuals. The Awara and the Bloom each provide sturdy edge support, and both beds sleep very cool thanks to strong airflow through the coil layer.
The Awara is much more affordable, making it the better-value pick. However, lighter people, side sleepers, and others who prefer a balance of conforming and responsiveness may still want to opt for the more expensive Bloom.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. EcoCloud
The EcoCloud by WinkBeds shares a very similar design with the Bloom. The EcoCloud is constructed with 4 inches of Talalay latex in the comfort and transitional layers, 8-inch pocketed coils, and 1 inch of high-density base foam. Both beds provide comparable levels of edge support, and they each have longer-than-average projected lifespans.
However, the EcoCloud is much more responsive than the Bloom. This creates a more pronounced feeling of sleeping “on” the mattress, as opposed to the combination of sleeping “in” and sleeping “on” found with the Bloom, and the EcoCloud does not isolate as much motion transfer. One firmness setting, mediump-firm (6), is available for the EcoCloud. As a result, average weight sleepers typically experience more support and less added pressure compared to lightweight and heavyweight sleepers.
The EcoCloud and Bloom share the same price-point in a queen-size. Buyers should consider how much responsiveness they prefer, and whether motion isolation is an important factor, before deciding which model is best.
Brooklyn Bedding Bloom vs. EcoSleep
Unlike the one-sided Bloom, the EcoSleep Hybrid from Brooklyn Bedding is a flippable latex hybrid model with two different firmness settings. One side is medium-firm (6) and the other is firm (7). Both sides are fairly responsive with minimal contouring. This results in less motion isolation than the Bloom, but makes the EcoSleep Hybrid more suitable for those who like sleeping “on” their mattress versus “in” it.
Both beds have covers made of natural wool and organic cotton, which wick moisture away from the sleeper’s body, while their pocketed coils generate steady airflow. Due to these components, the Bloom and the EcoSleep Hybrid each offer consistent temperature neutrality. Other common characteristics include very strong edge support and longer-than-average expected lifespans.
The EcoSleep Hybrid is significantly less expensive, and its flippable construction may be better for sleepers who enjoy adjusting the feel of their bed from time to time. However, the Bloom’s superior motion isolation makes it a better choice for sleepers easily disrupted by movement.
