Quick Overview

The Freya is one of the newest mattress models from Brooklyn Bedding, a U.S.-based manufacturer. Also known as the Freya by Brooklyn Bedding, the mattress is considered a hybrid. It is constructed with comfort layers of memory foam and CopperGel Energex polyfoam, which is infused with copper and cooling gel; both of these layers are also infused with phase-change material (PCM) for added cooling. The Freya also has a polyfoam transitional layer, pocketed coil support core, and high-density polyfoam base. The cover is made of polyester. The Freya measures 13 1/2″ thick; in terms of firmness it is considered a ‘Medium,’ or a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

The Freya is advertised as a mattress that offers exceptional cooling and temperature neutrality for hot sleepers. Most hybrids sleep fairly cool due to strong airflow through their coil layers. Additionally, the PCM infusion in the top two layers helps stabilize the sleeper’s body temperature; copper and cooling gel components can also help hot sleepers maintain comfortable settings. As a result, the Freya should be suitable for most sleepers who naturally run hot. This is particularly true for those in the light and average weight groups; the bed’s ‘Medium’ feel is ideal for people weighing between 130 and 230 pounds. The Freya also isolates motion transfer fairly well and produces very little noise, making it optimal for couples who experience sleep disruptions due to movement or noise.

Compared to other hybrids, the Freya has a price-point that is slightly above-average. Brooklyn Bedding offers free shipping anywhere in the contiguous U.S.; the bed is also backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty. Read on to learn more about the Freya by Brooklyn Bedding in terms of construction, pricing, and performance ratings. This review also includes a summary of the brand’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some recommendations for similar mattresses.

CATEGORY RATING WHAT USERS ARE SAYING
Durability GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya by Brooklyn Bedding has an expected lifespan of about six and a half to seven years; this is fairly typical for hybrid beds with softer comfort layers.

Motion Isolation GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya absorbs and decreases more motion transfer than the average hybrid, due largely to its thick comfort system, but the bed does not eliminate transfer like competing all-foam models.

Off-gassing GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Off-gassing does not appear to be a major issue with the Freya, but the mattress may emit some smells when new.

Conforming GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya conforms closely and consistently; it is ideal for those who weigh 230 lbs. or less.

Sex GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya is somewhat responsive but some couples may prefer springier innersprings and/or hybrids.

Temperature Neutrality VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya sleeps exceptionally cool, even by hybrid standards; the comfort layers are made from cooling materials that effectively regulate the sleeper's body temperature, while the coil layer promotes strong, consistent airflow.

Edge Support GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya offers strong edge support thanks to a high-density foam base reinforcing the pocketed coils, but some sinkage may still occur along the perimeter (a common issue with softer beds).

Noise GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Freya has low noise potential; the pocketed coils may squeak occasionally, but overall the bed is very quiet.

What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Freya Mattress?

Freya mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.

FAIR

The Freya has a ‘Medium’ feel. This setting is considered optimal for those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds; the comfort layers conform closely without sagging, resulting in pain and pressure relief with little to no added discomfort. The Freya is particularly well-suited for side sleepers in this weight group, since it provides ample cushioning beneath the shoulders and hips for improved spinal alignment. The mattress may also be comfortable for those who weigh less than 130 pounds, but it is likely to feel too soft for sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds.

Our testing process found Freya mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You want to purchase a hybrid mattress and have a fairly large shopping budget
  • You tend to sleep hot, especially on hybrids and innersprings
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement and noise
  • You prefer sleeping on beds with thicker-than-average profiles

Warranty

Brooklyn Bedding offers a 10-year warranty:

  1. This warranty is entirely nonprorated. Brooklyn Bedding will, at its sole option, repair or replace any mattress with defects for as long as the warranty is valid.
  2. Warranty coverage is contingent on adequate foundational support. Per Brooklyn Bedding: “Brooklyn Bedding mattresses have been designed to be used on foundations with solid support with little or no give. This includes slatted wood or metal foundations with slats no more than 4? apart, wood or metal box foundations, and solid wood or metal platforms. Substitution or use of improper foundations such as old box springs (5+ years or more) without solid support, slatted wood or metal foundations with slats more than 4? apart, will void your mattress warranty.” In the event of a warranty claim, Brooklyn Bedding may require owners to provide photographic evidence of proper foundational support.
  3. Brooklyn Bedding will void the warranty if owners do not remove their mattress from its box within 60 nights of the delivery date and damage occurs as a result.
  4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface measuring one inch (1″) or deeper.
    • Defects in the mattress foams that lead to early deterioration of the material’s cellular structure.
    • Physical flaws in the mattress that cause foams and other materials to split or crack despite proper use and handling.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not measure one inch (1″) or deeper, or normal increases in foam softness. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage.
  6. This warranty is non-transferable, and is exclusively available to original owners who purchase their mattress from Brooklyn Bedding or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer do not receive warranty coverage.

How Does the Freya Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Freya mattresses stack up to other beds.

The Freya’s most notable strength is exceptional temperature neutrality, even compared to other hybrids. The mattress offers a cool, comfortable surface thanks in part to its comfort components – which include copper, gel, and PCM infusions – and consistent air circulation through the coil layer. The mattress also isolates motion transfer fairly well and does not produce much noise, making it a great choice for couples. However, those seeking a firmer mattress that does not conform very closely – including heavier back and stomach sleepers – may find the bed too soft and prone to sagging.
