Meet Our Testing Team
- Couples. The all-foam Cypress isolates motion transfer very well and does not produce any noise, while the hybrid Cypress offers great responsiveness for sex.
- Hot sleepers. The hybrid Cypress remains mostly temperature-neutral thanks to strong airflow through its coil layer. The all-foam Cypress absorbs a bit more body heat, but still sleeps cooler than many competing foam models.
- Value seekers. Regardless of selected mattress type or thickness, the Cypress is exceptionally low-priced compared to similarly constructed mattresses from other brands.
Not Recommended for...
- People who prefer a traditional innerspring feel. The hybrid Cypress is fairly responsive but it also conforms somewhat closely, resulting in a combined feeling of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress, while the all-foam Cypress has very limited responsiveness. Both models lack the signature bounciness of innerspring models.
Our testing team conducted an extensive evaluation of the Brentwood Home Cypress. Our review and rating process consists of three parts: in-house evaluation, external sleep testing, and data collection of verified owner experiences. To learn more about our review process, read our methodology here.
Our performance criteria and ratings for the bed are listed in the table below.
As you can see, both versions of the Brentwood Home Cypress excelled in certain performance categories and earned lower ratings in others. For a detailed look at each rating, please check out our full breakdown below.

How Is the Brentwood Home Cypress Constructed?
The all-foam and hybrid Cypress models both feature the same cover, which is made from a blend of 99 percent polyester and 1 percent spandex. This material has a very soft and stretchy feel. The side panel fabric is a polyester and wool blend.
If stains occur, Brentwood Home recommends cleaning the fabric using natural methods.
The 11-inch all-foam and hybrid Cypress models are constructed with 1-inch comfort layers of charcoal-infused memory foam. The 13-inch models have 2-inch comfort layers of the same material. Additionally, the 13-inch all-foam Cypress has a second, 2-inch polyfoam comfort layer.
The foam comfort layers conform to the sleeper’s body in order to alleviate pressure and improve spinal alignment. The 13-inch models have a balanced medium feel, which can be attributed to their thicker comfort layers. The 11-inch models are firmer by comparison, and do not conform as closely as the 13-inch models.
Each Cypress model has a transitional layer of 1.5 PCF high-density polyfoam transitional layer. Transitional layers are designed to prevent sleepers from sinking through the comfort layers and coming into contact with the firmer, denser support layers.
Most Cypress models feature transitional polyfoam with an indentation load deflection (ILD) of 33, meaning it has a medium-firm feel. The 11-inch all-foam and 13-inch hybrid each have a 1-inch transitional layer of this material, while the 11-inch hybrid contains 2 inches. For 13-inch all-foam models, the transitional layer measures 2 inches thick and the polyfoam has an ILD of 17, indicating a much softer feel.
The all-foam Cypress models have 8-inch support cores of high-density polyfoam. Like the transitional layer, the support foam has a density of 1.5 PCF and an ILD of 33. This robust material helps stabilize the entire bed and maintain an even plane for sleepers.
The base foam is also intended to reinforce the perimeter against deep sinkage, but as we’ll reveal in our ‘Edge Support’ breakdown below, the all-foam Cypress offers only fair edge support.
Hybrid Cypress models contain 8-inch pocketed coils in its support core. The coils are zoned, with thicker low-gauge coils to support the shoulders, back, and hips, while thinner high-gauge coils cradle the sleeper’s lighter areas. Thicker coils also line the perimeter to protect the edges from significant sinkage.
The hybrid’s support core also includes 1 inch of 1.5 PCF high-density base foam. This material has an ILD of 52, indicating an exceptionally firm feel.
The 11-inch all-foam and hybrid mattresses are considered medium-profile beds. These models sacrifice comfort layer thickness for more support in the transitional and base layers. As a result, Cypress models with this profile have a firmer feel.
The 13-inch models are considered high-profile mattresses. These beds have deeper comfort layers and thick pocketed coils, creating a more balanced, medium feel.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?
Each design and thickness combination for the Brentwood Home Cypress has a distinct feel. The 11-inch all-foam model features a firm surface that conforms very little and offers even support, which can be particularly beneficial for heavier individuals.
The 13-inch all-foam mattress has a medium feel with closer conforming and more pressure relief for lighter people – side sleepers in particular. The 13-inch offers a deep pressure-relieving cradle for the sleeper’s body, resulting in more sleeping “in” – as opposed to sleeping “on” – the mattress.
The hybrid Cypress is much more responsive than its all-foam counterpart, thanks to its thick coil system. Although the 13-inch hybrid is softer than the 11-inch hybrid, both models offer a combination of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress. Sleepers should expect to deeper body-conforming with the 13-inch hybrid.
Next, we’ll take an in-depth look at the performance ratings for both versions of the Cypress. These ratings are based on findings from our internal and external testing teams, as well as reviews from verified Cypress owners.
The current versions of the all-foam and hybrid Cypresses mattress were first introduced in 2019. As a result, we have not had enough time to test these models against the average mattress lifespan of six to eight years. Our durability ratings for the all-foam and hybrid Cypress models are based on the quality of materials and construction, owner experiences with these mattresses, and Brentwood Home’s overall reputation.
After testing, we estimate the all-foam Cypress mattress will perform for about six and a half to seven years before a replacement is needed. This is on par with the average memory foam model. The mattress has a thick support system that should minimize significant sagging over time.
However, the mattress may begin to lose shape as its softer surface foams deteriorate. This is particularly true for the 13-inch all-foam model, which has softer comfort layers and is more susceptible to deep body impressions.
The hybrid Cypress has an expected lifespan of about seven years, which is comparable to the average hybrid. The thick coil system should help maintain even support for sleepers and prevent significant sinkage along the perimeter.
However – as is the case with the all-foam Cypress – the 13-inch hybrid will probably wear out faster than the 11-inch hybrid due to its softer surface materials.
To protect the Cypress from forming significant body impressions, Brentwood Home recommends rotating the mattress head-to-foot once a month for the first six months, followed by rotations every six months for the remainder of the bed’s lifespan.
Two of our testers evaluated the Cypress mattresses for motion isolation by lying side-by-side on the mattress. One tester moved around while the other felt for movement transferring across the surface of the bed.
The all-foam Cypress exhibited very good motion isolation during these assessments. Neither tester felt much transfer when the other was moving. The more responsive hybrid Cypress isolated some motion but did not completely eliminate transfer.
Thickness did not appear to affect motion isolation for the all-foam models, as both profiles performed very well in this category. For the hybrid Cypress, the 13-inch model reduced more transfer due to its thicker comfort layers.
Our testers noted some off-gassing odor from the all-foam Cypress when they unboxed the mattress, and fewer smells from the hybrid model. However, they found both mattresses were relatively odor-free when they re-evaluated the beds a few days later.
Hybrids and innersprings have the lowest odor potential due to strong air circulation through their coil systems, which help clear out unwanted smells rather quickly. Beds with all-foam bases can sometimes trap initial odor, but smells typically dissipate in a matter of days.
To evaluate the all-foam and hybrid Cypress models for pressure relief, we asked our testers to lie on a sensory pad that tracks pressure build-up in the shoulders, hips, and other sensitive areas. The testers also switched positions to see if pressure increased or decreased when lying on their sides, back, or stomach.
During these tests, we found pressure relief varied by mattress type and firmness level, as well as the tester’s body weight and sleep position. The 11-inch all-foam model does not conform closely and maintains a fairly even plane.
As a result, this mattress alleviates pressure very well for heavier individuals, and less so for lighter people. The 13-inch all-foam model, on the other hand, conforms rather closely to alleviate pressure for lighter individuals and improve spinal alignment for side sleepers.
The hybrid Cypress did not alleviate as much pressure for our testers. This is fairly typical of hybrid models, since their coil systems make the surface more responsive and can limit the comfort layer’s conforming ability. That said, the 13-inch hybrid conforms much more closely than the 11-inch hybrid, and testers found the former offers better overall pressure relief than the latter.
During our evaluations, the testers found the all-foam Cypress traps some body heat. This is a common issue for beds with foam support cores. However, the mattress did not sleep excessively warm for our testers.
The hybrid sleeps much cooler by comparison due to stronger airflow through the coil layer. This is especially true for the 11-inch hybrid because sleepers do not sink as deeply into the mattress, resulting in better surface airflow.
To evaluate the all-foam and hybrid Cypress for edge support, our testers sat along the edges of both mattresses, as owners might do when getting in and out of bed. They noticed significant sinkage with the all-foam model, but felt very secure sitting on the edges of the hybrid Cypress. The latter’s better edge support can be attributed to its thick, zoned pocketed coils reinforcing the perimeter.
Testers also took turns lying near the edges of each mattress to check for feelings of “roll-off.” Again, they felt very stable lying on the hybrid model, even when switching sleep positions, but did not feel as secure on the all-foam Cypress.
During our tests, we found the all-foam Cypress was virtually silent when bearing weight. This characteristic, along with its strong motion isolation, make the all-foam Cypress ideal for people who awaken easily due to their sleep partner’s movements at night.
As expected, the hybrid Cypress also did not produce much noise. Pocketed coils tend to be much quieter than other coil types. The support core may become louder as the mattress nears the end of its lifespan, but we don’t foresee major noise issues with the hybrid Cypress.
For many couples, the hybrid Cypress is an ideal mattress for sex due to its balance of body-conforming and responsiveness. The 11-inch hybrid is particularly springy, allowing couples to change positions easily and its strong edge support enables them to utilize the entire surface of the bed. The 13-inch model conforms a bit closer, which provides decent traction during sex.
The all-foam Cypress is not very responsive, and couples may not find it sufficiently springy. The firmer all-foam model conforms less for easier movements during sex, and also provides good traction. Couples also experience good traction with the 13-inch model, but may find it restricts movement because their bodies sink too deeply.
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, we evaluated the bed with sleep testers of varying body types and position preferences.
Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.
The 13-inch all-foam and hybrid Cypress each earned favorable ratings from our lightweight testers. Side sleepers felt particularly comfortable on the all-foam model thanks to ample cushioning beneath the shoulders and hips, which can improve spinal alignment and reduce pressure points.
Back sleepers found the all-foam and hybrid mattresses both alleviated pressure very well while maintaining even support. For stomach sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds, the all-foam and hybrid each offered adequate pressure relief, but the testers noted some sinkage around the midsection.
Our lightweight sleepers gave mostly positive ratings to the 11-inch all-foam or hybrid models, but they did not find these beds as comfortable as the 13-inch models. Due to their firmer feels, the 11-inch mattresses do not conform as closely to alleviate pressure in the shoulders and hips.
Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.
Our average weight testers – like our lightweight testers – preferred the 13-inch all-foam and hybrid models. Side, back, and stomach sleepers in this weight group all gave very positive ratings to the 13-inch hybrid. The mattress conformed evenly and alleviated pressure while remaining supportive and responsive, creating an ideal balance for most sleepers weighing between 130 and 230 pounds.
Average weight testers also rated the 13-inch all-foam Cypress very favorably, though stomach sleepers experienced more sagging than side and back sleepers.
Average weight side and back sleepers found the 11-inch all-foam and hybrid Cypress models firmer and more uncomfortable by comparison, though their ratings for this profile were still fairly positive. Stomach sleepers in this weight group preferred the 11-inch hybrid because it did not sag as much around the midsection.
Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.
Heavyweight sleepers were fairly mixed about the Cypress. Side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds experienced great cushioning and spinal alignment on the all-foam and hybrid mattresses in both profiles. For back sleepers in this weight group, the hybrid Cypress offered more overall support and comfort than the all-foam model, but tester ratings for both mattresses were positive.
Heavyweight stomach sleepers found the all-foam Cypress prone to excessive sagging around the midsection, a common issue associated with this sleep position. Many heavier people carry a large portion of weight in their stomach. Sleeping face-down can cause the body to sink too much, which compromises mattress support and often leads to neck and shoulder pain.
Although the 11-inch all-foam Cypress was more supportive than the 13-inch model, stomach sleepers noted deep sagging for both mattresses. Comparatively, the hybrid Cypress offered more support and sagged less for stomach sleepers.

How Does the Brentwood Home Cypress Compare to Other Beds?
We encourage all mattress shoppers to compare different brands and models in order to find the most suitable option. In the next section, we’ll see how the Cypress stacks up to other Brentwood Home models and some similarly constructed mattresses from competing brands.
Brentwood Home Cypress vs. Brentwood Home Crystal Cove
The Crystal Cove is Brentwood Home’s flippable hybrid mattress. One side features memory foam and polyfoam layers and a medium-soft feel, while the other side has a latex comfort layer with a medium-firm feel. Although mattress shoppers have more options when choosing their Cypress mattress, the Crystal Cove’s flippable design offers more night-to-night versatility.
The hybrid Cypress and Crystal Cove both provide very good temperature neutrality, and each has a zoned pocketed coil layer for enhanced edge support. The Crystal Cove’s memory foam side isolates motion very well and alleviates a fair amount of pressure, much like the hybrid Cypress, while the latex side has a more responsive feel and will not deteriorate as quickly.
The Crystal Cove is more expensive than the hybrid Cypress, but both beds are considered low-priced compared to other hybrid models. Sleepers who appreciate the customizable design of flippable beds may prefer the Crystal Cove. Otherwise, these two mattresses have earned comparable ratings across most performance categories.
Brentwood Home Cypress vs. Brentwood Home Oceano
The Oceano is another hybrid model. The mattress is constructed with comfort layers of memory foam and pocketed minicoils, followed by a support core of 8-inch pocketed coils. This coil-on-coil design gives the mattress exceptional responsiveness. The Oceano also offers above-average temperature neutrality thanks to strong airflow through both coil layers.
For most performance categories, the hybrid Cypress and Oceano have earned similar ratings. Responsiveness, edge support, and expected durability are key strengths of both mattresses, and both provide adequate pressure relief for most sleepers. However, the Oceano isolates motion slightly better due to its thicker comfort layers.
The Oceano costs considerably more than the hybrid Cypress, regardless of the latter’s profile settings. For many customers, the decision will also come down to firmness preferences because the Oceano is medium-firm (6), while the Cypress can be medium (5) or firm (7).
Brentwood Home Cypress vs. Casper & Casper Hybrid
The Casper is a mixed-foam mattress made with polyfoam and memory foam comfort layers, along with a high-density foam base. The Casper Hybrid shares the same comfort layers as its all-foam counterpart, but swaps pocketed coils for high-density foam in the support core. Both the Casper and the Casper Hybrid have a medium feel and are best suited to sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less.
The Cypress is also available as an all-foam or hybrid model, but this mattress accommodates more sleepers thanks to its multiple thickness/firmness options. Most heavier people and back and stomach sleepers are best suited to the firm, 11-inch Cypress models, while lighter people and side sleepers may find the 13-inch Cypress mattresses more comfortable.
Otherwise, the Cypress and Casper mattresses have similar performance ratings. The all-foam models excel at pressure relief and motion isolation, while the hybrids offer better temperature neutrality and responsiveness for sex.
The Casper and Casper Hybrid are slightly more expensive than the Cypress models, but all of these mattresses are reasonably priced. Lighter people are more likely to prefer the Casper models due to their softer firmness, but the Cypress offers a broader product range that caters to different sleep styles and body types.
Brentwood Home Cypress vs. GhostBed
The GhostBed is a mixed-foam mattress built with latex and memory foam comfort layers on a high-density polyfoam base. Like the all-foam Cypress, the GhostBed isolates motion very well and does not produce any noise when bearing weight, making it a great option for couples.
The GhostBed also alleviates pressure very well, and sleeps cooler than most competing models thanks to its more breathable latex layer. Compared to the all-foam Cypress, the GhostBed offers stronger edge support, and its latex provides better responsiveness for sex.
However, the GhostBed is only available in a medium-firm firmness level. The Cypress, which is sold in medium and firm versions, accommodates more sleepers in terms of body type.
The GhostBed costs more than the all-foam Cypress, but it is still fairly affordable compared to other beds with memory foam and latex layers. Customers who prefer a medium-firm feel should consider the GhostBed, while the Cypress is better suited to those who like a medium or firm feel.
Brentwood Home Cypress vs. Nectar
The Nectar Mattress is an all-foam mattress constructed with three layers of memory foam over a high-density polyfoam base. The mattress has a medium-firm feel but conforms very closely, creating a pressure-relieving cradle for the sleeper’s body. This sensation is comparable to the deep conforming of the 13-inch all-foam Cypress, while the 11-inch all-foam Cypress feels firmer and conforms less.
The Nectar shares other similarities with the all-foam Cypress, as well. Both models offer decent temperature neutrality, isolate motion very well, and do not make any noise when bearing weight. These mattresses also tend to sink significantly when people sit along the edges.
Like the all-foam Cypress models, the Nectar is very low-priced and considered a high-value mattress. The 13-inch Cypress and Nectar have earned comparable ratings in most performance categories, while the 11-inch Cypress is likely the best option for heavier individuals and those who prefer minimal body-conforming.
